Stampin’ Up! More Love Notes & New Horizons

Welcome back to the work week!  Hope your weekend was good – and productive.  We got a lot of plantlings planted – got a few more to go, but…we made a dent, for sure!  I’ll post pics when we get it more done and looking all pretty and stuff! 🙂

When you spend much of the day (or two days!) in the garden – it’s good to have a simple card in your brain bucket!  And – I did, cuz I’d been seeing this one since I saw the sketch challenge.  I love the More Love stamp set – it’s got one.  Big.  Sentiment.  And that is all!  I added it to a pretty piece of New Horizons DSP and…done!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Hugs, Prayers and Love from Positive Thoughts!

Happy National Tortilla Chip Day!

Yep – that’s a real thing!

So…you’re duty bound to go your nearest Mexican food restaurant and eat chips and salsa.  Do it for your country! 😉

With that out of the way, and my public service complete for the day, let’s get on with a card, shall we?  I made a little collage for you (shocking, I know!) using the Positive Thoughts stamp set – and the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies (part of the 2020 Coordination Product Release!).  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

On a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Positive Thoughts sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink.  Then I cut it using the die from Stitched So Sweetly.

I placed a card-front sized piece of Crumb Cake into the Stamparatus and laid the sentiment label in place in the corner.  Then, I stamped the flower from Positive Thoughts in Terracotta Tile.  Then I picked up the label and inked and stamped the image a second time.  I laid the label back down, moved the stamp on the Stamparatus panel – and repeated the process a second time.

I did the same process all over again a couple more times – this time with the leaf image in Mossy Meadow.  I stamped that image twice in each spot without re-inking to help create some more depth.

Then I matted the panel on Terracotta Tile card stock.

I picked up the sentiment label and stamped the feather image in Terracotta Tile a few times without re-inking.

With the dies from the coordinating Nature’s Thoughts die set, I cut some Mossy Meadow and Vellum cardstock leaves.  Using Terracotta Tile cardstock, I spritzed a piece with some water with my Stampin’ Spritzer, then I cut two feathers.  I lightly sponged the edges of the feathers with Terracotta Tile using a Sponge Dauber and curled them slightly.

I laid out all the pieces and parts – including a Linen Thread double-loop bow – and took a picture.

I adhered all the elements – leaves and feathers – with Liquid Glue.  Then I popped the sentiment onto with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bow with a Glue Dot….

…added a tiny Terracotta Tile butterfly (yes, cut with a die from the Nature’s Promise die set) and a few Terracotta Tile 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots.

And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the Stamparatus to add a second sentiment from Positive Thoughts in Mossy Meadow to a Crumb Cake panel.  Over that, I added the flower in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile ink.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a few flowers on the front – in Terracotta Tile that I stamped three times without re-inking.

…and I added the leaf image in Mossy Meadow on the back of the envelope.

Et Voila!  Positive Thoughts is one of my very favorite stamp sets in the 2020 Jan – Jun Mini Catalog and I am SO happy to have the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies!!

…especially that tiny butterfly!  So stinkin’ sweet!!  I hope you like – and will grab these two goodies up quick like the Cadbury Easter bunny! 🙂

This was our day here in GA.

Had to play THIS game way too many times.

Kind of dreary.  Bleh.

Stampin’ Up! Big Thank You’s and Petal Promenades!

Happy New Week, y’all!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I worked a bit on Saturday, then did my grocery shopping and a little new-clothes shopping(now WAY more fun than a year ago!!).  Then Sunday was all cards all the time.

Oh – and laundry… 🙂

And – I was so proud of myself.  After sitting on my…you know what…most of the day, I rewarded myself.  By going to the treadmill downstairs for 30 min.

Are you impressed?  But wait.  There’s more.  After THAT – I went swimming.  In a pool.  In.  An.  Actual.  Swimsuit.

Now – I DID double check first that no one else was in the pool area – but…Still.  😉

So, if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, thank you so much for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to check out how to make this card today, here’s the link to the video on YouTube.
