Stampin’ Up! Forever Flourishing Ferns Hello!

Good Monday morning!  Happy Labor Day!  Hope you’re celebrating by NOT laboring! 😉

We’ll head home a little later today – it was a wonderful ceremony – and Matt and Katelyn looked so handsome and beautiful.  It was good that I’d made it to the store for the waterproof mascara. 😢👍

Hard to believe the kids are married.  Guess they’ll always be “the kids”, huh? 🥰🥰

Okay – back to the business at hand!  My card for today is a pretty, feminine one that comes to you from the Forever Fern stamp set, with its bundled and gorgeous Forever Flourishing Dies!  Take a look-see:

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

Like most hops, we have a theme each month – and this month’s is “CAS(E) A TeamMate”!  Our fearless leader drew names from a hat and I was tickled to find myself CASEing Elaine De Montmorency!  Yeah!  I started browsing thru her blog and came upon a card I loved right away.  Well – there were a TON that I loved  – Elaine makes gorgeous cards – and a lot of cool fun-folds (I DO hope you’ll check out her blog!) but this one said “MAKE ME”!  So…I pulled out my Forever Fern stamp set and D Acrylic Block and…take a look-see!

Stampin’ Up! A Simple Hello From Forever Fern!

‘Sup, y’all!??  Hope your week is going well and that you’re staying safe.

And masked.  And socially distanced!  We’re seeing spikes in cases, people – time to hunker back down if you’ve de-hunkered!

Just sayin’!

At our awesome Zoom team meeting this past weekend, three of us prepped and led the group in creating a card with the wonderful new Forever Fern bundle.  I’ll share Amy and Sue’s cards later this week – mine was (uncharacteristically!) simple – letting some Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper add just the right amount of bling!  Take a look-see!

See what I mean?

While I stamped and talked the team thru the card – I could see all their pretty faces looking back at me!

It was so cool to be “together” to stamp and craft and laugh!  Yeah ZOOM!!!

This one started with some of the pretty Forever Greenery DSP matted on Soft Sea Foam for the card front.

We embossed a Shaded Spruce panel in the Greenery Embossing Folder, matted it on Soft Sea Foam and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.

Then, the pretty floral Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper die cut was adhered with Liquid Glue.

On a seperate piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped the sentiment from Forever Fern in Shaded Spruce ink.

I stamped a couple of small leaf images in Soft Sea Foam and a few of the splatter image in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I cut the sentiment with the next-to-smallest circle Stitched Shapes Die.

I popped the sentiment onto the gold die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the white Elegant Faceted Gems and the card front was done!

Told you it was quick and easy! 😉

On the inside, I added some larger Forever Fern leaves in Shaded Spruce, smaller leaves in Soft Sea Foam, and some splatters in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I added more Elegant Faceted Gems!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Forever Fern leaves and splatters on the front…

…and a little more Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Wow – I do SO love this Forever Fern bundle with the Forever Flourishing dies that cut out stand-alone leaves as well as stamped leaf images – WHAT A SET!!…

And the two papers in the suite are gorgeous!

Et Voila!  I hope you like and have this set on your list!  I’ll be bringing you a couple more cards using it as the week goes by – if you don’t want it now…you WILL! 🙂

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


Yesterday was Finn’s six-month Wellness check.

At about….8 months!  Between the vet and I, we’d pushed it right a couple of times.

Thank you, COVID.

But – this is the “off” check – just checking general health and well-being (and the dreaded scale!) – no shots or blood work.  And, since he’s a pretty healthy dude – it seemed like the right thing to do!

As always – he was very very happy to go and see his friends at the clinic.  And they really love him there.

And, y’all – he is SO stinkin’ good!  The new protocol is that owners can go into the exam room as long as they’re wearing a mask, but the tech takes the patient to the back for the exam.

Finn went with her with not so much as a backwards glance.

I got this, Mom!

Then he comes back in with this giant grin and wiggler wagging.

And plops down next to me to see what’s going to happen next.

He likes their cool floor, I think!

But – he’s always interested as soon as the little knock at the door comes…

Come on in, Dr. Chris!  We’re ready for you! 🙂

You’ll be glad to know that, except for what appears to be some developing arthritis in his left hand, he’s hale, hearty and healthy!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Greenery Lovely You Sneak Peek

Good morning!  Let’s have a moment of silence for the last day of the awesome 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

Okay.  Done?

Now – let’s get ready to RUMMMBLE!!!  TOMORROW!

Yes – you have to wait until tomorrow to RUMMMBLE!!  That’s when the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog will be available to you for ordering!

For now….speaking of new catalog goodies – I’ve got a couple on my cards to share with you today. Yep – I said cards – as in multiples! I made eight of these – four in each design, using the new Forever Greenery DSP and the Lovely You stamp set.  Plus…a little Well Written (available now – and carrying over!) Die cutting! Take a look-see:

The clean and easy design for this one is from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week.

I used two different paper designs in the new Forever Greenery DSP – and Petal Pink mats on both of them.  I adhered the paper to the mats with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die and cut either a Shaded Spruce or a Pretty Peacock “mat” for the sentiment.

The sentiment itself is cut from Petal Pink with a die in the Well Written Die set – then it’s adhered to the “mat” with Liquid Glue.

I popped the matted sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied little bows from the gold twine in the new Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered them with a dab of Liquid Glue.  I love this gold twine – and I unraveled the “tails” of the bows to make them even prettier! 🙂

I added a single Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel and the card fronts – all EIGHT of them! – were done!

On the inside, on a Very Vanilla panel, I stamped one of the gorgeous DistINKtive leaf images from Forever Fern in Pear Pizzazz.  The Lovely You stamp set provided the pretty sentiment – stamped in Pretty Peacock or Shaded Spruce.  Each panel got another Champagne Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Shaded Spruce or Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the cards were done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes all got Forever Fern leaves in Pear Pizzazz on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flaps.

Et Voila!  Some gorgeous Forever Greenery DSP….a die cut from Well Written…and a perfect sentiment from Lovely You!  And wonderful leaf images from Forever Fern – and you’ve got the makings of tons of cards for all sorts of occasions!!

 

I put them all together and – with just a little stamping and die cutting – got 8 pretty thank you cards in short order!

I hope you like and have added these sets to your gotta-have-it-now list!

Be on the lookout for the start of some awesome ordering and joining specials starting tomorrow with the arrival of the new catalog! Whoo-hooo!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

P.S.  Just so you know what to expect tomorrow, 3 June – as we transition the Stampin’ Up! ordering system to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog….Stampin’ Up! reminded us that ordering will be unavailable from midnight to noon (MT) while we transition our systems to the new catalog. Ordering will be restored no later than noon (MT).

The GOOD news is that you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to start ordering your faves!  The bad news is that you may be awake then anyway – out of sheer excitement! – and you won’t be able to start ordering your faves! 😉

P.P.S.  The the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog retiring products will be gone TONIGHT!  Don’t miss out!

These are hard days – scary and confusing.

The world is in chaos, it seems.  We’ve got good happening –

that is overshadowed by the bad…

Is there a solution to…any of it?

I don’t know.

But…Finn might find the answer.  He…spends a lot of time thinking…

Solemn demeanor.  Crossed hands.

A sure sign that many of the world’s biggest problems are being contemplated.

I hope he comes up with some answers.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Sneak Peek Hello!

Good morning!  In “normal” times (different from the “new-normal” times we’re in right now), I’d say – whoo-hoo for a short week!  I suppose that it’s still true – even if you’re working from home – you DO only have to do it for four days and then there’s another weekend!  Which means you only have to put your “work jammies” on for three more days.  I’m assuming you’re already “dressed” for the day! 😉

My card today is all about the new Forever Greenery suite – with its Forever Fern stamp set bundled with the Forever Flourishing die set and the Forever Greenery DSP – in the 2020-2022 Annual Catalog.  It’s one of my favorites (which, to be fair) is a pretty long list.  I have a LOT of faves in this catalog!  For this one, I added a few pieces of the beautiful Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch side of this week’s FUSION challenge.

I started by stamping one of the pretty leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I also stamped the little splatter image in Soft Sea Foam all about, here and there!

Then I embossed the panel in one of the new Greenery Embossing Folders – the one with the leaves on top and bottom…being a Mini folder – it left about 1″ of non-embossed cardstock on the left side of the panel.

Which worked perfectly for my design!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of Forever Greenery DSP on the left side of the panel and to adhere the panel to its Shaded Spruce mat.  Then I covered the seam with a length of Just Jade 1/4″ In Color Ribbon, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut a Shaded Spruce leaf die cut with one of the gorgeous dies in the Forever Flourishing Die set, then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it, and a couple of laser-cut leaves from the Gold Forever Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.

On another piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped a Forever Fern sentiment in Shaded Spruce.  Around it, I added those splatters again in Soft Sea Foam.  Then I cut it out with the larger circle die cut in the new Tasteful Labels set (also coming on 3 Jun in the new catalog).

I tied a quick double loop bow from the wonderful gold twine in the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I adhered the sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the big leaves image in Shaded Spruce on a Soft Sea Foam panel.  Next to it, I added a smaller image in stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce.  Then I added some more Soft Sea Foam splatters and Champagne Rhinestones.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Forever Fern leaves in Shaded Spruce on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love love love this Forever Fern stamp set and it’s wonderful bundled Flourishing Forever Die Set!!

And the Forever Greenery DSP is spectacular!

I hope you like – and are counting down the days till you can get it all for yourself!  And – FYI – you can get this bundle, along with even MORE gorgeous stamp sets and bundles in my Just Cuz They’re Beautiful Special Bundle!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


On most mornings, I leave Finn on a “stay” in the barn while I lead the ladies around to let them out in the pasture.

Some days, I feel like maybe I’m being watched

Since I know for SURE it couldn’t be Finn watching me – cuz of how he’s in the barn where I left him…I know it’s just paranoia….

Or…is it?

THAT does not look like a “stay”….

Watcha gonna do when he comes for you…for you….

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday!!  Hope it’s been a good week for you.  I’ve been busy with the pre-order and doing a lot of ooohing and aaahing over all the new pretties!  And putting shares together for you – look for those to be announced tomorrow.  And pulling retired product off the shelves to “make room”.  And deciding to open up a new Host Club in June to help y’all get all the fun new things I know you want – check that out down below.  Ordering catalogs and checking my mailing list. Yes – busy busy!!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday (one of the highlights of my week!) – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

This is a set you maybe (probably?!) haven’t seen before? Yep – it’s brand spanking new and it’s part of the Forever Greenery Suite in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, which you can get your hands on on 3 Jun!  The stamp set, called Forever Fern, is bundled with one of the coolest die sets ever – the Forever Flourishing Die set.  And the Forever Greenery DSP is…stunning!  I also grabbed a cool stitched circle die from the new Tasteful Labels die set. Take a look-see (the card on the right is the one we made in the video!):

I’m playing along with this week’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

 

This is a fun-fold that I saw on a SplitCoast Stampers tutorial, from the talented Kelly Atcheson.  I thought it was cool, so I made one myself!

I started with a piece of new Just Jade, cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ for the card base.  Then I embossed a Whisper White panel in one of the new Greenery Embossing Folders (this is a 2-folder pack, available in the Forever Greenery Suite on 3 Jun).  These are small folders – so I ran the panel thru the die cutting and embossing machine twice to get the whole thing embossed.

I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue. Note: on the video, I cut this panel at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and matted in on Shaded Spruce before adhering it to the card front).

The small flap is really just a small tent card – I cut a Just Jade piece at 3 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded it at 4 1/4″ and then adhered the back of the note card to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I matted a beautiful piece of the new Forever Greenery DSP on a Shaded Spruce panel and adhered it to the front of the flap with Liquid Glue.

Using two of the spectacular dies in the Forever Flourishing Dies, I cut a large leaf in Shaded Spruce and a slightly smaller one in Pear Pizzazz. Before I cut the leaves, I spritzed the card stock lightly with water using my Stampin’ Spritzer.  I adhered the leaves to the front of the flap-card with Liquid Glue.

There’s another cool new product in this Suite, called the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  One of the two trims in the pack is a gold twine/thread.  I tied a large-ish bow with that gold trim and adhered it to the flap front with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Forever Fern sentiment in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Whisper White and cut it out with the larger circle die in the Tasteful Labels die set.  This cool set – coming on 3 Jun – is bundled with the Tasteful Touches stamp set.

I popped the sentiment over the gold bow with Stampin’ Dimensionals – added a Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot (coming on 3 Jun) – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a large leaf in Shaded Spruce and smaller leaf image in Pear Pizzazz – both in the Forever Fern set.  On the video card – I also added a sentiment in Shaded Spruce!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into the small card base – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Forever Ferns leaves on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Okay – just get ready, cuz you’re going to hear this a lot in the next few weeks.  Ready?  I think this Forever Fern bundle and the whole Forever Greenery Suite is absolutely going to be my favorite in the new catalog.  It is simply stunning!!  And you KNOW how much I love die cut leaves – and this Forever Flourishing Die set is chock-a-block full of beautiful leaf dies!!

I hope you like. No!  I hope you LOVEEEEEE it as much as I do.  And cannot WAIT to get it for yourself! Psst – I can make that happen for you – just join my team right now and pick this for your Starter Kit.  And then get the rest of the pre-order goodies – right away, no waiting until 3 June! – with a 20% discount.

Just throwing it out there for you!

New Online Host Club Beginning in June!

What is an Online Host Club?

Well – besides helping you to build your crafting tool chest a little at a time, a club also lets you get host benefits – without actually HOSTING a workshop!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FORTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   Not only will that help you gather up 2020-2021 Annual Catalog goodies – it’ll put you in a perfect position for the 2020 Jul – Dec Mini Catalog (previously known as the Holiday Mini!!).

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please give me a holler!

Finn Fan Fix


Today is about flowers.  A particular flower.

Finn likes flowers.  Roses in particular.

Well – he might, you don’t know!! 😉

I planted a rose in a pot a while back – in March.  We bought it at Sam’s.  Along with some lilacs and the raspberries and blueberries.

Sam’s – it’s not just for toilet paper anymore.  Or…at all, actually! 😉

So – when I planted it on 22 Mar, I took a picture of the package so that when it started to die (my expectations of my ability to actually grow a rose….low) I’d at least know what to Google.

I picked it cuz it said “very fragrant”.  Scientific, I know.

Well.  I didn’t kill it!  In fact…..this is what I found on 14 April!  A baby rose!!

So I kept watching – peering at the leaves each morning and evening waiting for signs of the impending demise of my Pink Peace Hybrid Tea Rose with its Magnificent, Very Fragrant blooms of deep, dusky pink on long stems.  And…leathery foliage.

But no….five days ago….

And then – three days ago….

 

And then, yesterday, it happened!

I GREW A ROSE!!! A Pink Peace one!!

And…guess what!??

It really IS magnificent and VERY FRAGRANT! And – I’m pretty sure it has leathery foliage, too! 😉

Boom!
