Stampin’ Up! Playful Penguins Side by Side

Happy Friday!  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned.  And REALLY hoping that the weather is getting a little cooler where you are!

For today, I’ve got a sweet little card that I think would be great for anyone on your card list!  It uses the very nice DistINKtive stamp set – Playful Penguins – plus a couple of Annual Catalog background stamps.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge this week…

And the could-be-masculine-real-easy color scheme is thanks to the TGIF color challenge!

I started by creating a fun background in Black and Merry Merlot using the Buffalo Check and Handwritten stamp sets. My Stamparatus played a key and starring role in this endeavor – plus my ever-present sticky notes!

I masked off part of a Merry Merlot panel and stamped one side with the Handwritten stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I flipped the panel in the Stamparatus, re-positioned the sticky notes and stamped the Buffalo Check in Tuxedo Black.  The Stamparatus is PERFECT for this – cuz it lets you stamp and re-stamp as many times as you need to get the amount of color you want!  Pick up the sticky notes and….

Boom!

I matted the panel on Basic Black to create my card front.

Next up is a piece of Basic Black – cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered at an angle with Liquid Glue.

I once again employed the Stamparatus to stamp two of the totes-adorbs Playful Penguins in Tuxedo Black on a Very Vanilla panel.  I placed both stamps on the plate and stamped them at the same time.

Then I cut the image at an angle with a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die.  I used my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to add some “ice” under them (cuz – you know, Penguins don’t like….hover!). 🙂

I popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Playful Penguins, is stamped in Merry Merlot on a piece of Very Vanilla, cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered with Liquid Glue.  There’s a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional under the bottom right-hand corner to support the sentiment banner.

I stamped two scarves – one in Merry Merlot on Very Vanilla and one in Basic Black on Merry Merlot –  and fussy cut them.  Then I popped them onto their penguins with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some black dots from the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Playful Penguins in Merry Merlot on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I stamped the two penguins in the bottom corner!  Yes – used my Stamparatus again – I just moved the plate down a couple of hinges to put the image where I wanted it!

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

The front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more penguins on the front…

…and on the back.  I used my Stamparatus to lift the envelope flap so that I could stamp the image again – making it so it would all be there when the flap is raised up!  Thank you, Stamparatus! 🙂

Et Voila!  I love this Playful Penguins set – truth…wasn’t sure I would.  I mean…penguins are cute, but…c’mon – they’re no Australian Shepherd.  But – once I stamped the images (and they’re perfectly textured with just a quick stamp!) – and added the sentiments and accessories…I am hooked!  I think they’re just darling – and perfect for a wintery card!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Udderly Over the Moon!

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Hope the week is going well – and that if you are – or are not – or might be – or might not be – maybe – possibly – in the path of Dorian…that you’re doing okay.  🙂

My card today is a quick and easy one – with some fun embossing using Shimmer Black Embossing Powder to create the cute image from the Over the Moon stamp set!  Take a look-see:

The color scheme is thanks to the Global-Design-Project color theme this week.

I played along with The Paper Players “Down on the Farm” theme…

…and with the TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge! 🙂

I started with a piece of So Saffron card stock and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Then I cut two pieces of Mint Macaron paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP and matted them on Basic Black as well.  I adhered them both to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I inked up the sweet little cow-dudette from Over The Moon in Versamark Ink and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I sprinkled it with some Shimmer Black Embossing Powder and heat embossed it.  I did the same with the heart-conversation bubble.  Aaaannddd…while I was at it – I heat embossed the heart-conversation bubble on a seperate piece of Whisper White and set it aside for the time being.

I carefully colored the image with Stampin Blends (remember – the ink wants to react with the embossing powder – so…be discrete and stay off of it as much as you can!).  I used my Dark Black, Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Light Rococo Rose.  I colored her boots and horns with my So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker.

I matted the panel on Basic Black and added it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I colored the second heart-conversation bubble with my Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend and then fussy cut it.  It’s popped onto the card front with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Over The Moon sentiment in Rococo Rose on Whisper White and punched it with the Classic Label Punch.  I edged it with the So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the art panel with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I added the cow and conversation bubble images again – this time in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – on a Whisper White panel.  I colored her as I’d done on the front.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the cow and bubble treatment on the front…

…and a little more of the Mint Macaron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Okay – you can’t NOT love this little cow dude/dude-ette from the Over The Moon stamp set.  It simply isn’t possible. And when you throw in the sweet little sentiments – it’s a win-win-win!!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Basketweave Friend Like You!

Good morning – welcome back to the work week!!  I hope it will fly as fast as I know the weekend went for you! 😉

Today is…NOT a sneak peek of the 2019 Holiday Catalog!

gasp!

Instead – I went back to a lovely little stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called Friend Like You, which I paired up with the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

The color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started by stamping the wavy pattern from the Friend Like You stamp set on a Crumb Cake panel.  I stamped it twice to get all the way across the panel – first in Balmy Blue and then, offset a little (down), in Granny Apple Green.  Then I embossed the panel in the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  I cut the panel down to size and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the leaves/stem image in Granny Apple Green.  Then I inked just the cattails (on a second stamp) in Balmy Blue and stamped it.  Finally, I inked the flowers in Daffodil Delight (same stamp) and finished the image.  This is a photopolymer set – so it’s fairly easy to ink specific parts of the stamp.

I added a couple of Balmy Blue dragonflies.

I used a Stitched Nested Label Die to cut the art then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped a Friend Like You sentiment in Balmy Blue and cut it out with the small, narrow Stitched Rectangles die.  I used Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere the sentiment.

I finished off with a few Woven Threads Sequins (adhered with Liquid Glue) and a bow tied from Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon (adhered with a Glue Dot) and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second Friend Like You sentiment in Balmy Blue on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I stamped the leaves, flowers and dragonflies – just like I’d done on the front – but here I stamped the images off once before stamping it over the sentiment.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the flowers, leaves and dragonflies (in full strength ink) on the front…

…and on the envelope flap!

Et Voila! I love this pretty, any occasion, Friend Like You stamp set – it’s perfect for sending a little note to a friend for any day!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Daisy Lane

Happy Hawwwmp Day from Huntsville!  Had a good day yesterday – got here safely.  Got my work done and a new work computer (YEAH!!), got a really good mani/pedi and then had dinner with an old friend.  Followed by Handels Homemade Ice Cream.

Oh my goodness, y’all – if you happen to have a Handels anywhere near you…GO.

GO NOW.

Oh my goodness.

Yes – I know I said that twice.  It’s merited! 😉  I was a little too full (read…full as a tick!) but…SOOO worth it!

My card for you today uses the wonderful new Daisy Lane stamp set – and the Daisy Punch (which you can – and SHOULD – get right this very minute if you don’t have it already! 🙂 )  I put my daisies on some Perennial Essence DSP and added a Well Written die cut sentiment.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Sneak Peek!

Good morning, y’all!  Well – I’ve started the countdown.

Okay – I’ve sort of been counting down since I got here, but…it’s starting to get real!  I’m beginning to stress over the packing process next week, which means we’re getting closer!  I’m keeping my fingers crossed – and hope you will, too! – that I can actually get out of here next Friday.  I very badly want to be home on the 11th for a going away lunch.  I’m already missing my friend’s graduation tomorrow – and am going to be right annoyed if I ALSO miss the lunch for my other friend.  Yes.  I have two friends who are not the same person! 😉

So – think good thoughts that all goes well today and next week, won’t you?

My card today is a sneak peek of a beautiful bundle coming soon in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called To A Wild Rose.  The stamp set will be bundled with the Wild Rose Dies.  For this card, I set the bundle images against some perfectly perfect Perennial Essence DSP (also coming on 4 June!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the challenge at The Paper Players.

I started with some gorgeous paper from the new Perennial Essence DSP and matted it on Balmy Blue for the card front.

I created the vertical element using a die from the Wild Rose Dies, cutting it from another piece of Balmy Blue, then adhering it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I created some leaves by stamping the outlines from To A Wild Rose in Mossy Meadow.  Then I used the fill-in images in Old Olive – on one set I used full-strength Old Olive and on the other I used it stamped-off-once.  Different looks with one ink pad! 🙂

I also die cut a few Old Olive leaves and a Balmy Blue flower while I was at it.

To make the large flower, I used the three-step images in the To A Wild Rose stamp set.  The first image is Blackberry Bliss (that’s the outline), then I used Balmy Blue and Blueberry Bushel for the two fill-in images.  Then I cut it with the matching Wild Rose die.

The sentiment is two-step as well.  The large word is in Blakcberry Bliss and the smaller is Balmy Blue.  Since this is a photopolymer set, it was easy to line up the two images to create the sentiment I was after.  Then I cut it out with the uber-cool stitched die in the Wild Rose Die set! 🙂

I built the collage using Liquid Glue for the leaves and sentiment, and then added some Dimensionals to the back of the large flower.  I used them to wind some loops of Gold Metallic Thread and then adhered the whole thing to the card front.

I adhered the die cut Balmy Blue flower and added a new Perennial Essence Floral Center.  Near the bottom is a Crushed Curry felt flower from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit (also coming on 4 June), with a Gold Faceted Gem in the center.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from To A Wild Rose in Balmy Blue to a Whisper White panel, then added a bevy of flowers in Blackberry Bliss.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat and into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

…and some more of that stunning Perennial Essence DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I know I keep saying “WOW” with each new sneak peek, but…WOW!  Not sorry!

This To a Wild Rose stamp set and bundled Wild Rose Dies is simply gorgeous!  The sentiments are wonderful and the flowers and leaves perfect!  I hope you like and are excited to get this one added to your tool chest come 4 June!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Strong & Beautiful Seasons

Good morning, y’all!  Hope the weekend is proceeding apace for you!

We’re off to take the Man to a doggy play date at Puppy Tubs, then make the trek north so I can get a haircut (in preparation for my trip that leaves a WEEK FROM TODAY – bleh!) and hit Costco.  Then tomorrow – after waking up an hour earlier than my clock says it is…think that one thru – I’ll head north again to our Inkin’ Krew meeting!! Whooo-hooo!  Can’t wait!

My card today is one for providing encouragement or cheering on a friend in a new endeavor.  And I used sentiments from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set with some pretty flowers and foliage from the Painted Seasons set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Country Flowing Fountain

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Well – last night, at the end of a long and turbulent week, Wayne and I went to dinner with our friends in what has become a routine for us.  Not all routines are something to be eagerly anticipated – but this one…definitely is.  It’s a nice thing to look forward to each weekend!

Also – did you know that yesterday was – apparently – National Margarita Day?  I didn’t until my friend told me – which helped make the dinner decision easier.  Mexican it was.

But – they weren’t doing ANYthing special for National Margarita Day.

Mexican.  Food.  Restaurant.  National Margarita Day.  Hola?!?

Pero….Nada.

Huh.

Not saying this kept me from having the drink-of-the-day.  Cuz I totally did!

Now – my ramblings about my dinner aside, we’ve also got a card – which is, in fact, why you’re here, right? 😉

It’s a clean-and-simple little number, that I made with a sentiment from the Flowing Fountain stamp set with an assist from the new Country Floral Dynamic TIEF and some beautiful Painted Seasons DSP.  Take a look-see:
