Stampin’ Up! Word Wishes for a Happy Easter

Monday cometh!  Or….is Here-eth, I suppose is more correct!  Hope you had a great weekend and that your week looks to be a good one!

I made y’all an Easter Card today – do you realize that Easter is only 7 weeks off?  That means it’s time to be thinking about Easter cards.

And pondering the age-old question…why would a bunny (who OBTW….CLUCKS!!) lay an egg??  Even a delicious candy egg with a soft and creamy center.  And – why only at EASTER??

It simply defies logic!

Sorry – back to my card!  I used the pretty Easter Promise stamp set and…the Word Wishes Die set (this is in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!).  It’s all backed up by the Pleased As Punch DSP (from the 2020 Coordination Product Release).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of new Pleased As Punch DSP from the 2020 Coordination Product Release) that I matted on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

I cut a smaller piece of Whisper White and, using the pretty image from Easter Promise, stamped the flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the image with my Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend Combo Pack – plus the Dark Mango Melody Blend for the stamen.

I matted the image on Daffodil Delight and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

I made the egg-shell using the Dino Days Die set – cutting it from the same Pleased As Punch DSP that I used on the card front.  And – ready to have your mind blown? 🙂

The egg die in the Dino Dies matches the egg stamp image in the Full of Happiness stamp set!

I popped the egg shell over the stems of the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the small narrow die in the Stitched Rectangle Dies set, I cut three rectangles from Vellum card stock.  These I adhered to the egg shell with Glue Dots.

Using the Word Wishes Die Set, I cut the words in Daffodil Delight and used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the Vellum rectangles.

Finally, I used the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color three Pearl Basic Jewels then I adhered them to the card front.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I matted a second piece of Pleased As Punch DSP on Daffodil Delight and used Liquid Glue to adhere it in my Granny Apple Green card base.  I cut another small piece of Whisper White and stamped a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Granny Apple Green.  I stamped and colored the Easter Promise flower in the corner.  Finally, I adhered a Pearl Basic Jewle that I’d colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into the card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Easter Promise flower on the front…

…and more of the Pleased As Punch DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  These beautiful flowers from Easter Promise are so bright and cheerful – and harbingers of hope that Spring – and the promise of Easter! – WILL come!  I love the Word Wishes sentiment die set – it works so well with this (and so many other!) stamp set!

Don’t forget to delve into your Annual Catalog goodies to pair up with the Mini catalog and Sale-a-bration products, okay? And, of course, the pretty Pleased As Punch DSP is so darned versatile!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Sunday was outside-jobs day.  The one day in a bit where there was no rain AND it got warm enough to be outside without 28 layers of insulated clothes on!

We put hay in the back for the ladies…

Then – cuz this is happening on the kitchen island…

…we realized that it’s time to get busy getting the raised beds ready for planting!

Not only is it time for a dirt refresh – or, more accurately – a Mel’s Mix refresh! – but we’ve decided to add a board and deepen the beds.

I put my best welder on the job!

One down – four to go!

See the difference?

Finn was banned to the carport…

…which he didn’t mind one bit.  He’s not a fan of the loud machines – like the welder.  And he’s not a fan of sparky-fire-y things, either.  Like…the weld!

Which he really REALLY didn’t need to watch!  Trying to treat his weld-burned-eyeballs with potato slices…can’t even imagine!

Also?  They don’t work.

At all.  Guess how I know? 😳😳😳

Stampin’ Up! Dino Days for A Good Man for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebrate Summer!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to go to the beach.  With dinosaurs.

No – no dinosaurs.  Just the DinoRAUR Suite.  And then I added a little Come Sail Away DSP and a couple of goodies from the A Good Man set.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Come Sail Away DSP and matted it on Crumb Cake for the card front.  Then I used SNAIL and some Glue Dots to adhere a length of new 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the image from A Good Man in Crumb Cake to start my beach-y scene.

I stamped the image again – on a sticky note this time – and roughly fussy cut it to make a mask.  Then I stamped it AGAIN – on some Balmy Blue striped Come Sail Away DSP.  I fussy cut just the shirt from that one.

I laid the sticky note mask over the stamped image and then stamped the palm trunks from Dino Days in Crumb Cake twice – when I lifted up the mask, the trees were “behind” the lounging man! 🙂

I colored my lounger-guy with my Light Balmy Blue (hat), Light Night of Navy (shorts); Ivory (skin) and Crumb Cake (“sand” and lounge chair) Stampin’ Blends.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the fussy cut “shirt”.

I added some Mossy Meadow leaves from Dino Days.  I matted the panel on Crumb Cake and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White I stamped 5 more leaves and cut them with the Dino Dies.  I lightly curled each leaf and used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the top of the trees.

I stamped the A Good Man sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut it with the Classic Label Punch.  Then I edged it with my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the card front with Dimensionals.  A new Designer Element in the middle of the palm tree leaves finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added some Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Dino Days palm trees to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Dino Days palms on the front…

…and a little more Come Sail Away DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now – seriously.  Does that NOT look like a totally wonderful way to pass a summer day!?!  And – aren’t you glad there are no Dino Days pterodactyls flying by??!  I bet our lounging dude from A Good Man sure is!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Akiko’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Just Hatched Dino Days

Merry Monday, my peeps!  Back at it, heh?  Hope your week goes well and with little stress!

For some reason, I’ve been unusually drawn to stamp sets and bundles in the new catalog that seem to be oriented towards kids and babies.  That’s not my usual, but…there’ve been several that really made me smile – and buy them!

One such bundle is the cute Dino Days stamp set – bundled with the Dino Dies – and the coordinating Dinoroar DSP.  So I pulled that out for today’s sweet little new baby card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was – maybe loosely? – inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenge.

And the color scheme is from this week’s Color Throwdown.

I started with one of my fave papers from the Dinoroar DSP and matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.  I used a small panel of Whisper White for the art panel.

I stamped the too-cute Dino Days dino-dude in Mango Melody and gave him some Pretty Peacock spines.  Underneath him, I stamped some fronds in Pretty Peacock – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  That let me have “different” colors without using “different” colors! 🙂

I matted the panel on Mango Melody and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the egg, I cut two of the dies from the Dino Dies in Whisper White.  I added some little circles in Pineapple Punch – then I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge on some Mango Melody (I got this idea from the samples in the catalog!).

On one egg shell, I stamped the Dino Days sentiment in Lovely Lipstick.  I popped that one on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added the second shell with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then added a Dinoroar Enamel Shape – sort of like a hinge.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second (and my favorite!!) sentiment from Dino Days in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White panel.  Over top I added a Mango Melody Dino-guy with stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock spines.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into a Pineapple Punch card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock dino-person on the front…

…and I used a little more of that totes-adorbs Dinoroar DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m guessing that you can see why this Dino Days stamp set and matching Dino Dies appeals to me?  Oh – did I mention that several of the dies cut out images on the Dinoroar DSP?  I didn’t?  Well – they DO! 😉  I hope you like!

Yesterday, we went to have Father’s Day with our friends.  As is the norm, I was tasked with deviled eggs and dessert.

Fortunately, I had a sous chef…

He tried to convince me that the sous chef gets to lick the beater…

And THEN he tried to convince me that eggs are good for dogs…

He’s pretty persuasive, really.  Also…persistent! 😉

Okay – confession time.  I put the bowl down on the floor after I’d pulled out all the egg filling!

As I’ve said – I’m not a MONSTER!!
