Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Delight in the Round!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope yours is going well so far. 🙂  I thought I had to work today, but…my guys worked extra long last night and at 6:30 we realized we’d get the whole, entire, beautiful two weekend days off!!  Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-HOO!!! 🙂  I’m ready – and I know they sure are, too!

My card today is so quick and easy to put together – thanks to some beautiful Wood Textures DSP and Delightful Daisy DSP, a couple of stamped images from the matching Daisy Delight stamp set and some Circle Dies.  Take a look-see:

 

This unusual layout was inspired by the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

And many of the elements were inspired by the inspiration photo from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I had an Old Olive card base from a previous effort (that I ended up not using!) and it already had the front of the card base embossed in the new Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.  It seemed sort of perfect for this one, so I just pulled it back out to use!  Sometimes it’s good to be a pack-rat!! 🙂

I started with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and ran it thru the Big Shot in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then I matted it on some Daffodil Delight card stock.  

After that, it was just a matter of cutting the Daffodil Delight scalloped circle mats and picking and cutting my favorite papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  I used the Circles Layering Framelits – making this a quick task.

Well…all but picking my favorite papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack.  That took a minute – too many to choose from! 🙂

I adhered everything together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For my sentiment, I stamped the pretty one from Daisy Delight in Old Olive onto a Whisper White strip, snipped a banner end and then edged the whole thing with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker.

I cut a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon, cut the ends to a banner and attached it to my sentiment with a handheld stapler.  It’s popped on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off, I tied a small bow with Linen Thread and attached it with a little dab of Liquid Glue, then added some Old Olive Glitter Enamel Dots, and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the pretty little flower stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set and stamped it a couple of times on a piece of Whisper White.  They each got a quick stem with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I cut it with another Circle Layering Framelits die and matted it on a scalloped Daffodil Delight mat.

I matted the panel on a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Daisy Delight flowers on the front…

…and then I added a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

 

Et Voila!  Even without the Daisy Punch, this Delightful Daisy Suite is wonderful and gorgeous!  And it combines so nicely with the Wood Textures DSP to make a quick and easy card.  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Layers of Lovely Daisies!

Good morning, y’all!  Did you have fun yesterday when the new catalog went live in the Online Store??  I sure did.

My credit card, on the other hand, may not be thinking it was all that much fun!  Poor little dude got a work-out!! LOL.

My card today uses a fun set that carried over into this new catalog.  It’s called Layering Love and it’s a pretty one!  I also used some of my favorite new Designer Papers from the Delightful Daisy DSP and the Wood Textures DSP Stack.  Take a look-see:

My layout is from this week’s challenge at The Paper Players:

And my color scheme is from the Global Design Project challenge.

I started with a piece of Calypso Coral design paper from the new Delightful Daisy DSP and matted it on a piece of Basic Black card stock.

The horizontal strip, also from the Delightful Daisy DSP, is next and I decorated it with the new Ticket Tear Border Punch (Available now – I love being able to say that!!).  I cut both edges with the punch and then SNAILd it to a Basic Black mat and then onto the card front.  

For my sentiment, I used a piece of wood-grain paper from the Wood Textures DSP and stamped it with the sentiment from the Layering Love stamp set.  I colored the stamp directly with my Basic Black and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers.

To cut the Stitched Shapes rectangle, without an actual Stitched Shapes rectangle die, I used a square die and cut half at a time.  Line the die at the top of the sentiment, leaving the bottom portion hanging off the end of the platform and run it thru the Big Shot.  Then line up the “stitches” and repeat on the other hand.  My friend Amy did a quick video showing how to do it – which you can see right here.  🙂

With that done, I SNAILd the panel to its Basic Black mat and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Calypso Coral heart Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Ticket Tear-punched piece of the Delightful Daisy DSP, matted on Basic Black, to a Very Vanilla panel. Then I stamped the tiny heart from the Layering Love set in Calypso Coral.

I SNAILd the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a few more of the Layering Love hearts in Calypso Coral on the front…

…and a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s so easy to forget about the cool stamp sets that were in previous catalogs, what with the advent of all the new and exciting goodies!  But this is a great set, with really pretty sentiments in beautiful fonts!  And – of course – the paper.  The PAPER!!  Goodness me – so darned pretty!!!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Wild About Daisies!

Mornin’, y’all and happy Hawwmp Day!  

I wanted to quickly remind you that I’ve got a couple three openings left in my upcoming Online Host Clubs – these are great ways to earn host rewards!  I’ve got all the details on my Online Host Club page, so check it out.  And then get your name on the list!

Speaking of hosts…we found out that Stampin’ Up! will be offering an extra $35 in Stampin’ Rewards for qualifying orders or parties over $350 in June!  We’ll get more details on the 30th, and I’ll be passing them on lickety-split.  In the meantime, be thinking about how you’d spend an extra $35 of free money! 

For today, I made a pretty, flowery and feminine card with the Wild About Flowers stamp set, and a few favorite goodies from the new Delightful Daisy Suite.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

I started with a beautiful piece of paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP and matted it on a piece of Peekaboo Peach card stock.

The next layer is a rectangle of Whisper White card stock.  Using the images in the Wild About Flowers stamp set, I stamped several stems in Old Olive ink.  Then I added flowers in Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder and Peekaboo Peach.  I SNAILd the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and then onto my card front.

I used a length of Tranquil Tide 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon, looping it around and securing it in place with some strategically placed Glue Dots.  This ribbon, available on 1 June, is just lovely – it’s thin enough to be pliable but it’s got enough heft to do what you need it to do!  And it’s going to be available in all the new 2017-2019 In Colors!  And – you could get a couple of yards in each color in my Catalog Shares.  Check those out right here – still have a few spots open!

My flower is made from two punched Whisper White daisies that I cut with the Daisy Punch.  I adhered them together with a bit of Liquid Glue and then stamped one of the flower middles from the Daisy Delight stamp set, in So Saffron ink.

My sentiment is from the Eastern Beauty stamp set, stamped in Tranquil Tide on Whisper White.  I snipped a banner end and edged it with my Peekaboo Peach Stampin’ Write Marker.  

I popped the daisy on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added the sentiment with a Glue Dot.  Over the middle of the flower, I added a new Gold Faceted Gem.  And yes – that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used the large stem from Wild About Flowers and stamped it in Old Olive in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the image off twice before stamping the panel.  The flowers are added in stamped-off-twice Calypso Coral ink.  I added a sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Tranquil Tide.

I SNAILd the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Old Olive and Calypso Coral flower on the front…

…and I added a slightly different paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I love this Wild About Flowers stamp set – the images are so simple and beautiful!  And the way it just meshes with the Delightful Daisy is simply…wait for it….Delightful!!  Hope you like and are anxious to get this new Suite in your hands!!  And already have Wild About Flowers!!

Well – it spent a lot of the day raining here.

Almost-one-year-old Aussies love the rain!

And it’s never raining too much to play in and around the pond.

But, almost-one-year-old Aussies also know that our actions have consequences!  He’s smart that way.

Stampin’ Up! Eastern Palace and Delightful Daisy Match Up!

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Welcome to the work week!  Bleh.

That’s how I’m starting to feel about work.  Just…bleh.

Thank goodness it’s still supporting my SU! habit or…might be time to pull the plug!

If you didn’t get to see my Facebook Live video from last night, here it is!  Enjoy!

For today, I wanted to share another Clean-and-Simple card using the wonderful Eastern Palace bundle – the one that will be available in the new catalog.  That’s the Eastern Beauty stamp set and Eastern Medallions Thinlits.  If you remember, the super cool, super-value Starter and Premium Bundles – with the FREE goodies! – will only be available thru the end of this month!  So…if you like free (and…uhm…who doesn’t?!) you might want to consider grabbing up either of those bundles right quick-like!  The info is down below.  This card uses the goodies in the Starter Bundle – but remember there’s even more free stuff in the Premium Bundle.  Just sayin’…

So – I paired it up with some of the Delightful Daisy DSP (coming 1 June) and added a touch from the new Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (also coming on 1 June!) and…take a look-see:

My layout was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week:

And my color scheme is courtesy of the Just Us Girls Color Week challenge.

I started with a piece of the Night of Navy paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP and SNAILd it to the top of a Lemon-Lime Twist mat.  This new bright color is an amazing accent color!  For the bottom portion, I ran a smaller piece of Night of Navy card stock thru the Big Shot in the new Sparkle TIEF (1 June) and adhered it with SNAIL.

Using a piece of Whisper White card stock, I cut the Eastern Medallion die cuts.  I laid them both out on the card stock at the same time – and added the largest smooth-sided circle die from the Circles Layering Framelits around both medallion dies.  So I made three cuts with just one pass in the Big Shot!

Once my cut was made, I used the little accent image from the Eastern Beauty stamp set and stamped it around the outer edge in Tempting Turquoise.  I added the sentiment, also in Tempting Turquoise, and the circle-of-dots in Lemon-Lime Twist, too.

I matted my medallion on a scalloped Lemon-Lime Twist mat, using Liquid Glue, and then popped it all over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I kept it very simple, just adding a second Eastern Beauty sentiment and more of the little accents images in Tempting Turquoise on a Whisper White panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a Lemon-Line Twist mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the little Eastern Beauty flourish in all four corners on the front, in Tempting Turquoise…

…and more of the Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.  And…I may have added another couple of little flourishes, cuz I liked ’em! 🙂

Et Voila!  This Eastern Palace bundle is just wonderful – so full of possibility – so many combinations!  I just love it – and hope you like, too!  Don’t miss your chance to get the big bundles while they last!

My puppy is kind of a goofball.

I think we’ve established that.

And I don’t mind.  Goofy is fun.

But – when he starts doing things that make me feel like a dog abuser….I have to draw the line.

Poor poor puppy.  

His parents won’t even give him a soft place to lay.

No plush bed for this abused pooch.

Nope.  Gotta use a rock for a pillow. 😏

For my card, I pulled out another new stamp set – this is the Just Add Text set.  And I combined it with some Delightful Daisy DSP and a few touches from the Background Bits Host-exclusive stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I used the sketch at Mojo Monday this week to help me with the layout of this one.

I started with a Whisper White panel, SNAILd on Daffodil Delight for my card front.  Then I used a piece of Old Olive paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP for the diagonal strip.  I used a pencil to trace the diagonal cut I needed and cut it with my Trimmer.  Then I did the same with a Daffodil Delight card stock strip for the mat.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the paper to the mat and then to the card front.

The middle layer is one of my favorite designs from the Delightful Daisy DSP, SNAILd on Daffodil Delight and then popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the sentiment, I used the beautiful stamped image from the new Just Add Text stamp set.  I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to put it right where I wanted it and stamped it in Night of Navy on a Whisper White panel.  I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to color the flowers and a combination of Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker and Old Olive Watercolor Pencil to color the leaves.  Then I SNAILd it to a Daffodil Delight mat.

I wrapped some of the new Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon around the panel, securing it with a Glue Dot in the front.  Then I added a little bow with a second Glue Dot.  Finally, I added a Night of Navy heart Enamel Shape and the card was done!

On the inside, I first stamped some little flowers in Daffodil Delight across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  These flowers are in the Background Bits Host-Exclusive set coming on 1 June.  Over those, I added a Daffodil Delight-matted strip of the Delightful Daisy DSP.

I SNAILd the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Background Bits flowers in Daffodil Delight across the front…

…and more of the Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Inside and Out Daisy

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!  We’re back to summer in GA.  Bleh.  But – the veggie plants are loving it and growing like crazy – so there’s that!

I have a summery-pretty card to share with you today.  I used the beautiful Delightful Daisy DSP and the fun Lovely Inside & Out stamp set with the coordinating (and bundled!) Lovely Words Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

My layout – and several of the elements of the card!  – was inspired by the sketch and photo at the Fusion Challenge this week.

I started out by SNAILing a piece of Whisper White card stock to a Daffodil Delight mat.  The middle layer is a piece of Night of Navy paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP, SNAILd to Daffodil Delight and then to the card front.

Next up, I used the Lovely Words Thinlits to cut the heart die shape from a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock.  When you use that die, it leaves the negative in the piece of card stock.  So, I used a heart die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits to cut the whole heart out.  I used the same heart die to cut a Whisper White heart, then adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to the card front with more Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set is stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White, matted on a strip of Daffodil Delight and popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The flowers are from the Lovely Friends stamp set.  I stamped just the detailed flower images – one large and two small – in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White – then cut them with their matching dies in the Lovely Laurels Thinlits.  They’re adhered to the heart and sentiment with Liquid Glue.

To finish it off, I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to each flower and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I decided to change things up just a smidge, and stamped another sentiment from the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set in Night of Navy.  But I placed it in the bottom corner instead of the middle of the Whisper White panel.  I surrounded the sentiment with a few more of the Lovely Friends small flowers in Daffodil Delight, with a Rhinestone in the center of each flower.

I SNAILd the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Lovely Friends Daffodil Delight flowers on the front…

…and a little more Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love this color combination – it’s so classic and bright and cheerful!  And the Delightful Daisy DSP really makes it shine.  I think the two bundles – Lovely Inside & Out and Lovely Friends – just went together so happily.  Hope you like – and that these are already on your wish list! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix…

People, I have an addiction.

My name is Mary and…I’m a Finn-Picture-A-Holic.

I can’t seem to stop taking picture of him!

Wayne tells me that not everything he does is cute.

I think he’s wrong.

The dog is cute when he’s making me crazy!

Wayne’s been working on our patio by the barn.  With a spot for my raised beds and a fire circle.

Quality control is essential.  Wiggle-Butt Quality Assurance Associates (WBQA2) is on the job….

….they give their all.  The CED (Chief Executive Dog) is on the job-site quite frequently.

Close inspection is necessary to ensure the job is being completed correctly.

 

It’s critical to leave no stone unturned.  Or left under a pallet….

WBQA2 CED basking in the knowledge of a job-well-done.

Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Delight Again. Yes. Again!

Hey y’all – it’s finally Friday!  Whoo-hoo!  I hope this is the weekend we get to see Guardians!  Keep your fingers crossed, okay?

So – I tried to tell myself that I was going to give y’all a break on the Daisy Delight bundle.  But then I didn’t.  I used the whole shootin’ match.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the My Favorite Things challenge on this one for the layout.

And I also took part in the Can You Case It color challenge.

I chose Dapper Denim, Powder Pink, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

I started out by SNAILing one of the prettiest papers in the Delightful Daisy DSP to a piece of Powder Pink card stock.  Then I wrapped a length of the new 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in Powder Pink around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

I cut a Whisper White Stitched Shapes oval and a Powder Pink scallop oval – slightly bigger – and SNAILd them together and then to the card front.

The flowers are made with the large image in the Daisy Delight stamp set – I stamped 6 of them – and then punched them all out with the Daisy Punch.  Using Daffodil Delight ink, I added the two-step flower center to three of the flowers.  I stacked up two flowers, adhering them with Liquid Glue, then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the top and bottom flowers to the card front.  Over those, I popped the third flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, from Daisy Delight, is stamped in Dapper Denim on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  I snipped banner ends and added faux stitches with my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker (avail 1 June).  Finally, I popped the sentiment over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I added a second Daisy Delight sentiment in Dapper Denim and a couple of small flowers in Daffodil Delight on a Whisper White panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Daffodil Delight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Daffodil Delight flowers across the front…

…and more of the beautiful Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I know…I know.  You must be getting crazy tired of seeing these daisies.  But, y’all.  I just can’t help it!  I love this whole Delightful Daisy Suite and I know you’re going to, too!  Hope you like this one enough to forgive my repetitiveness! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  Having a good weekend??  I hope so.  We did some mowing yesterday – I rode the small zero-turn mower and Wayne worked the skid steer mower.  Everything looks so pretty when it’s all mowed and fresh looking.  And it smells so good!

We’re headed to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol II today – I’ve heard great things about it already!  I’m even going to splurge and have popcorn! 🙂

So – tonight, on my Facebook Live video, we’re going to do two things.  First I’m going to spend a few minutes talking about the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and showing you how to use it.  Had a request, so that’s what we’re going to do!  Then, I’ll walk you thru a very pretty, springy Mother’s Day card using my favorite new Suite – the Delightful Daisy Suite!  Here’s a teaser…

Yep – you see a little peek of an Eastern Medallion!  Fun, huh?

You’ll see that I played with two challenges on this one.  The first inspired the layout and my choice of DSP.  That one’s the Sugar Pea Designs Mix It Up Challenge.

And the Mother’s Day theme is from the Just Us Girls Word Week challenge.

So – hope you can join me tonight – right here – at 8pm Eastern!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Did you guys watch the Derby yesterday?

I’ve vowed to boycott it, but every year we end up watching.

I’m married to a former jockey, so…interest is high.

This is how we watch the Derby here.  He’s usually exhorting one or the other jocks to push, “quit whoopin’ on him and ride”, go around, better get movin’ or some other sage advice.

He also can usually pick the winner before they’re half way down the back stretch.

It’s actually a pretty fun way to watch the race!  

Finn cared not one whit.

He was more interested in me stuffing his treat ball with freeze dried liver chunks.

Seriously – I thought he was going to fall over he was tilting his head so far!!  I think he was counting how many I was stuffing in there.

He’s kind of a goofus.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Friends And Daisies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop



Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! If you’ve been following along, you’ll know this is color week!  I know all our ladies have made some beautiful projects for you, so be sure to hop thru all their blogs when you get done here! 🙂

Here’s our color scheme…

 

I decided to use a sentiment from the new (coming to you on 1 June!) Lovely Friends stamp set and combine it with its matching die set – the Lovely Laurel Thinlits – and some of my fave Delightful Daisy DSP.  Take a look-see:

I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge over at The Paper Players.

I started with a piece of Calypso Coral design paper in the Delightful Daisy DSP.  I was a little worried it would be too busy – and it was with just the sentiment!! – but it worked well once all the flowers were on.

I inked up the large sentiments from the Lovely Friends stamp set in Versamark and stamped it on the DSP panel.  Then I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  I SNAILd the panel to an Early Espresso card stock mat.

I got busy with the two pretty little flowers in the Lovely Friends stamp set.  Both of them are two-step stamps.  Using So Saffron and Calypso Coral, I made several of each size flower in a variety of combinations to make a whole flower shop’s worth of flowers!  Some of the first step (the fill in) were done with stamped-off-once ink.  There’s no particular rhyme or reason to the flowers – I just had fun with the stamps!!  On the flowers where I did tone-on-tone, I used my So Saffron and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers to help darken the detailed stamped image.  And then I cut them all out with their matching die in the Lovely Laurel Thinlits.

 

Before I started sticking flowers on the card front, I used a length of Linen Thread and one of Copper Metallic Thread and wound a few loops on the card front – using a Glue Dot to adhere the loop – in the bottom left and upper right corners.  Then I started adding the flowers.  Some are adhered with Liquid Glue and some are popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

I tied a little bow with the Linen Thread and Copper Metallic Thread and adhered it on the flower in the upper lefthand corner with a little Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the ends of the threads under the flowers in the other corners with more Glue Dots.  I wanted it to look like the tails of the bow were looped under the other flowers!

I finished the card front off with some Copper Foil leaves cut with the Lovely Laurel Thinlits tucked under the flowers, some tiny Pearl Basic Jewels Embellishments in the small flowers and a few Enamel Shapes in So Saffron and Calypso Coral in the large flowers.  

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Lovely Friends in Early Espresso on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped some more of the Lovely Friends flowers in So Saffron and Calypso Coral.  I made a couple of sticky note masks so that I could build some depth.  I added some of the Enamel Shapes to these flowers as well!

I SNAILd the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my So Saffron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Lovely Friends flowers on the front…

…and I added a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This sentiment from Lovely Friends is big, bold and beautiful – and looks awesome in the Copper embossing, don’t you think?  And – like I’d hoped – the pretty flowers strewn about helped to quiet the kind of busy DSP!  Hope you like – and are adding these goodies to your with lists!

Stampin’ Up! Woodland Lovely Friends Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope this post finds you well!

My card for today is another sneak peek – this time of the Lovely Friends stamp set and the bundled Lovely Laurels Thinlits.  I added a little bit of the Delightful Daisy DSP – sooooo pretty!! – and an old favorite…the Woodland TIEF!!  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Global Design Project challenge – which is a CASE The Designer challenge.

And my color scheme is inspired by the Sunday Stamps color challenge.

I started with a pretty Olive Green panel from the Delightful Daisy DSP (coming 1 June!) and I ran it thru one of my favorite embossing folders – the Woodland TIEF.  Then I matted it on a piece of Peekaboo Peach card stock.

I worked with the corner square element in the inspiration card and made a frame and sentiment panel.  I cut the sentiment panel from a piece of Whisper White, using a square Stitched Shapes Framelit.  The frame is two pieces – one in Always Artichoke and one in Whisper White.  I cut both of the frames with a scalloped square die in the Squares Layering Framelits – using two adjacent-sized dies.  To make the frame, I used the same square-sided die to cut the center out of both pieces.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the two frames together.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely Friends stamp set (1 June).  I inked “Feeling Very” in Crumb Cake and stamped it first.  Then I cleaned my stamp and inked up “Blessed” in Old Olive and stamped it under the first portion of the sentiment.  I also added some Peekaboo Peach flourish images in the corners of the panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment panel and then popped the frame over it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The floral decoration is all from Lovely Friends and the matching Lovely Laurel Thinlits.  I stamped several large and small flowers – these are all two-step images.  I used Peekaboo Peach and stamped the first image (the fill-in) in full strength or stamped-off-once ink.  Then I added the second step image.  I also stamped several where I only used the second step – some in full strength Peekaboo Peach and some in stamped off once ink.  I cut them all out with their matching dies with the Lovely Laurel set.

I cut a few leaves from Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  Then I built the arranegement with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals, adding a few loops of LinenThread, too.  Finally, I used some new Glitter Enamel Dots (avail 1 June) in pale Crushed Curry and Old Olive and added them to the larger flowers.  The small flowers got a Pearl Basic Jewel Embellishment, and the card front was done.

On the inside, I just added a Peekaboo Peach flourish and some Pear Pizzazz dots (both from Lovely Friends!) in the corners of a Whisper White panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and into my Always Artichoke card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Lovely Friends flourishes and dots on the front…

…and a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the versatility and diversity of the Delightful Daisy DSP.  And the sentiments in Lovely Friends are…lovely?? 😏…and quite varied, too!  I hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix…

I’ve got some bad news, folks.

Finn has become a paparrazi-phobe.

Yes, it’s true.  

He gets himself in a cute position, holds his lips adorably, tilts his head perfectly.  And then…

…as soon as I pull out the camera…

…he moves.

Which is all to say that I don’t have a new picture of the Diva.

Can boys be divas??  I don’t know.

But since he became the teacher’s pet at class the other day – he’s been pretty slippery in the photo-op department.

So…I took a picture of something that couldn’t move.

That’s my veggie plants from the Territorial Seeds company.  They’re resting on my recently compost-refreshed bed.  I’ll wait another day or so before I get them planted – I think the chicken and mushroom compost I put in on Sunday is still a little too hot!

This year I’m planting EIGHT Ancho Magnifico plants!!  Chile Rellleno casseroles in my future!!  Yumm!!

Hopefully I’ll get sneakier and have a pic of Himself for you tomorrow!
