Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Painted Seasons Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope you’re having a great weekend so far – and have (maybe!) joined our fun Facebook Event!  If not – there’s still time to get in!

My card today further showcases the versatility of the soon-to-be-available Painted Seasons bundle (coming on 15 Feb – this will be available for FREE with a $100 purchase as a Sale-A-Bration goody!).  This time, I paired it up with the Strong & Beautiful Stamp set from the Occasions catalog as well as the SAB Part of My Story stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one if from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a Whisper White panel and, using my Stamparatus, stamped the pretty succulent flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist.  I stamped it a bunch of times.

Next, I added the little dots image all around in Petal Pink.

I also used my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to add little touches of pink to the tip of each succulent petal.  Then I matted the panel on Petal Pink with Liquid Glue.

The ribbon accent was made by tying a large-ish bow from the Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon and adhering it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the sentiment from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set in Versamark on a piece of Vellum card stock, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool. Then I cut it out with a Rectangle Stitched Framelit.  I also cut a Petal Pink rectangle with the same die.  With Glue Dots under the embossed areas, I adhered the sentiment to its mat – and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut some Wonderful Floral Framelits leaves from Lemon Lime Twist card stock.  Then I colored some Butterfly Elements (from the Sale-A-Bration flyer – free with a $50 purchase) with my Call Me Clover and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut leaves and wooden elements to the card front – tucking some under the sentiment.

Then I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Lemon Lime Twist and Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Markers to directly color a sentiment stamp from the Part of My Story stamp set (FREE at the $50 level during Sale-A-Bration) and stamped it on a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Seasons succulent on the front…and before I send it it’s going to get more Petal Pink “dots”, too.  Sheesh, Mare…

…and some pretty paper from the Painted Seasons DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am already totally in love with this image-only Painted Seasons stamp set – love being able to use the gorgeous flowers with one or more of the awesome sentiments we have available to us!  And the Strong & Beautiful and Part of My Story stamp sets sure have a lot of those – perfect for so many occasions!  I hope you like – and are looking forward to being able to pick this bundle for yourself when you place a qualifying $100 purchase.  15 Feb is right around the corner! 🙂

The last couple of days have given me some of my favorite weather.

Foggy mornings.

I love the fog – I suspect it stems from growing up in the SOCAL coastal region.  It has very strong – and good! – memories for me.

Also – when it’s foggy, I can pretend that just the other side of the trees is the Pacific ocean.  And that I can hear the waves.

It’s really just the distant sound of the freeway, but…hey.  A girl can dream!

The other thing I love about this misty weather is….the deer emerging…

Did you see her?

You can’t see them unless they move!

Finn – seldom sees them at all.

Stampin’ Up! Waterfront in Every Season!

Good morning!  From Atlanta!  Whoo-hoo!  Made it home in good time – pretty easy all the way around.  Watched a movie and did a few blog posts on the ride home!

Arrived to a shocking re-introduction to humidity!  Yikes!  And a dog who can’t hold his licker! 😉

My card for you today is made with the lovely In Every Season stamp set – an image-only set with 12 wonderful flowers – one for every month!  So I used that and a couple of sentiments from the Waterfront set.  I put it all on top of some soft Tea Room Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Hello Friend!

Well, look-ee look-ee!  Guess what day it is again!?  Yep – it’s HAWWWWMP Day, y’all!  It’s downhill from here to the weekend.

My card today is another departure from my norm.  In that it uses brighter colors and more…abstractedness…than usual.  I pulled out the pretty Hello Friend stamp set (the coordinating stamp set for the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit!) and tried a new coloring technique.  Take a look-see:

There’s a reason for the colors – I was playing along with the TGIF Color Challenge this week! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Petal Passions Celebrate Memories for the Stamp Ink Paper #131

Hey, y’all!  Welcome to Tuesday and the first Stamp Ink Paper challenge of 2018!  I hope you’ll come and play along with us!

Our Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #131 this week involves a technique!  We’re Embossing!.

I ended up doing a couple of embossing techniques – Heat embossing and dry embossing with a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  And I used the fun new Petal Passion suite of products – including the Petal Passion Memories and More Card Pack – and the Celebrate You Thinlits from the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  Take a look-see:

Coincidently – or…is it?!? 🙂 … you can buy all these Petal Passion goodies in one of my special 2018 Occasions Catalog Bundles – and, if you do, you’ll be able to get the Celebrate You Thinlits as your SAB goody!  Add a little card stock and ink and you’re ready to make this card! 🙂

Just sayin’….

So – I started with one of the larger cards in the Petal Passions Memories and More Card Pack and Fast Fuse’d it to a Basic Black mat for the card front.  The two middle panels are also from the Memories and More Card Pack – the bottom black one, I embossed in one of the Petal Pair TIEFs (you get two in the set) and then I adhered it on an angle to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the Sale-A-Bration Celebrate You Thinlits (available with a $100 purchase starting 3 Jan – that’s tomorrow!), I cut one sentiment from Silver Foil and the second from one of the chalkboard-y papers in the Memories and More Card Pack.  Then I adhered them to the Powder Pink card panel and popped that over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On yet another Powder Pink card in the Card Pack, I heat embossed the beautiful flower image from the Petal Palette stamp set in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I fussy cut it.

Don’t be scared.

Juuuuuuussssttttt breeeeaaaatttthhhhe….you’ll be done in no time!

I used some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere my fussy cut flowers to the card front.

For the embellishment, I made a Billie Moan bow with the new Silver Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added two little branch embellishments from the Petal Passion Embellishments – sticking them into the Glue Dot.  Finally, over that, I stuck a little bow from the Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon with another Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the dots image from Petal Palette in Powder Pink ink across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I heat embossed three small flower images in Silver.  I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blend and added one to the center of each flower.  Then I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add a second Petal Palette sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Powder Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Petal Palette dots in Powder Pink across the front…

…and on the envelope flap, I added some paper from the Petal Passion DSP and colored the flowers with my Light and Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends.

Et Voila!  In the past, I’d always sort of relegated the Memories and More Card Packs to “scrapbooking” – but no more!  They’re filled with die cuts and printed acetates and gorgeous patterned cards that can really add a lot to all your card making.  Which is why I added it to my Petal Passion Special Bundle!  There’s method to my madness, y’all!!  This is such a beautiful suite of products – and the possibilities are….huge!  Hope you like!

Monday – the very first day of 2018 – was well-digger-lunch-bucket cold here in GA.

Not as cold as it is in Iowa.  Or…Michigan.  Or…New York.  But – check my Zip Code – I don’t live there! 😉

The result of it being well-digger-lunch-bucket cold is that I tend to spend the day inside.  I “suit up” – hoody/covers/insulated hoody/ear warmer/watch cap/ear-warmer-as-balaclava/gloves/mittens-over-gloves – to go out and feed.  That happens twice per feeding, so four times a day.  

The rest of the day – I pretty much want to be in the house.

Not so the Man.

HE apparently likes 20.  Degrees!

Also – he wants ME to come out into the deep-freeze and play.

I don’t.  So…he’s bored bored bored.  

Mom.  Mom.  Mom.  Mom.  Hug, Mom.  I need to tell you something, Mom!!!  MOM!!

Let’s do do do do DO something, Mom!!

Maybe we could go…outside??  It’s that way!

Let’s stop making cards and…go…out…side!!

Poor little ‘bused dog. 😉
