Stampin’ Up! Eastern Dahlia Wedding Card

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  I’ll tell you what – I’m ready for this week to be done.  Work has been a total PITA.  The “real” job – not this one!  I’m ready to not have to think about it for a couple of days.

Or years.


But…it’s still supporting my SU! habit, so…. you know.  Gotta keep doing it.

So – my card for today is a wedding card.  I made it using a new-to-me stamp called Definitely Dahlia – which is a single stamp with the most gorgeous flower image.  I added a little bit of Eastern Beauty (avail 1 June), some Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers (also 1 June), a little Sunshine Wishes Thinlit action and a sentiment from Floral Phrases  Yep, I was all over the place in my stash!  Take a look-see:

The layout of for my card is from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

And the wedding theme is from Stamp Ink Paper.

I started with a piece of Tranquil Tide paper from the new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (1 June) that I matted on a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock (1 June).  Over that I adhered a Tea Lace Paper Doily with some Liquid Glue.

I also used a couple of Glue Dots – on the doily – to wrap some loops of Gold Metallic Thread.

The center panel started with a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I inked up my new Definitely Dahlia stamp with Versamark and stamped the panel, then sprinkled the image with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat embossed the flower and matted the panel on a Tranquil Tide mat.

For the sentiment, I used a die cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits set.  I cut the die three times from Tranquil Tide and then adhered them all together in a stack with Liquid Glue.

The second part of the sentiment is from Eastern Beauty.  It’s a curved stamp – but I straightened it out when I stuck it to the acrylic block.  I inked just the words “is beautiful” in Versamark and stamped the panel.  Then I sprinkled it with more Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  I added the die cut “love” with Liquid Glue and the card front was done! 🙂

On the inside, I pulled a sentiment that seemed to fit perfectly from the Floral Phrases stamp set and added it in Tranquil Tide ink to a Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom of the panel, I adhered an Eastern Gold Vinyl Sticker.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers across the front…

…and a little more of the Fresh Florals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’ve had my eye on that Definitely Dahlia stamp for a long time (if it wasn’t clear, I only used about half of the image – it’s big, bold and beautiful!!) – I have no idea why I waited so long to add it to the stamp shelf!  I’m also liking the new designs in the Fresh Florals DSP Stack!  Hope you like! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix…

Well, I caught him.

Mostly cuz he was sleeping.

Sleeping in the “do you have any idea what your dog is doing and why?” position.

What position is that, you say?


Maybe there was a bug.  

Crawling on the floor behind the chair.  Or on the cat scratching toy.  Or on the hearth.

And…he fell asleep mid-pursuit.

Bug pursuit.

The struggle is real.

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Bells Christmas Wedding

Morning, y’all – Happy Monday!  It is happy, too – cuz I don’t have to work!!

Well – at least not at work work.  I do have to finish the little mess I started yesterday.  Decided to get brutal in the pantry.  Like…if I’d forgotten I had something, it was gone!  Then I happened to notice the cabinets – before I finished the pantry – and sort of went off on a tangent.  My island is wide and has doors on both sides of it.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t have slide out shelves (don’t think they existed in the 70’s….).  So…if you put something at the front of the cabinet – you can see it and even use it.  Put it behind that, though….and it’s lost.  I might even have found the place that socks go when you lose them in the dryer.  Ravioli plate?  Pasta Maker?  Huh.  Extra crock pot crock with no pot?  Yep.

The downside of my sudden end-of-the-contemplation-and-beginning-of-the-implementation is that I ran out of steam before the completion of said implementation.

So I have a kitchen full of stuff that needs to make it’s way to the van.  And I ran out of boxes.

Which means that’s on the agenda for today.  Bleh…. 🙁

But, let’s talk about something fun – like my card for today, shall we?  I made a Christmas Wedding card.  My parents were married at Christmas and I always thought that would be a cool time of year to get married.  With the church all decorated for Christmas.  Beautiful!

So making a card for a Christmas wedding seemed like a really good idea.  I used the new Seasonal Bells – which has both Christmas and Wedding sentiments!  And I added a great sentiment from the Floral Phrases stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Flourishing and Floral for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  We had a fun sketch challenge to play with this week – are you seeing the trend?  Color – sketch – color – sketch… 😉  Hope you’ll take a little browse thru everyone’s projects today – all the links are down below!

But first…here’s the sketch:

I kinda turned this one on it’s head.  Or….it’s side, I suppose it really was!  I pulled out the Floral Phrases stamp set – and the Flourish Thinlits.  And a teensy little bit of Floral Boutique DSP.  Which helped me to craft my colors.  Take a look-see at what I came up with:

Floral Flourishing Phrases 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I made this a blank-on-the-inside thank you card, so I could tailor it for whatever thank-you need I come up with!

Stampin’ Up! Detailed Floral Phrases Thanks!

Hello Monday and welcome to another week of card-making fun!  Oh – and work.  Always work!  Is it really any wonder that’s a four-letter word?? 😉

I hope that you all got your hubbys/dads/grand-dads suitably feted yesterday – we went and had dinner with our friends and it was a lot of fun.  We got to meet their newest addition – Jax – who is a son of their lovely lab Luke.  I know he was named as a tribute to his grand-dad, Black Jack – so it’s nice that they’re on their third generation of a really nice line of dogs.  He’s a chip off the ole block, for sure – quiet and calm.  Smart as a whip! And, of course – he’s as cute as he can be!! 


Now that you’re filled with “awwwwww” – let’s talk cards!  Today’s card looks like I spent hours.  And hours!  But that’s the beauty of this fun new Thinlit – the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  Just three pieces in the set and bing-badda-boom!  Instant wow!  And so many things you can do.  For this one today, I combined two of the dies with a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set called Floral Phrases – and added in a pretty paper design from the Serene Scenery DSP stack.  Take a look-see:

Floral Phrases Thanks 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I started by running a panel of Pool Party card stock thru my Big Shot with two of the large dies from the Detailed Floral Thinlits set in place on the panel.  Now.  I don’t have the Precision Plate and I’m not sure that I’ll get it.  I will, however, be getting the new Big Shot Platform (item #142802, on page 190 of the new catalog).  It’s been re-designed (beyond the removal of the old tab system) to help the Big Shot cut evenly across the entire rolling surface.
