Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Sailing Home Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Well – it’s Good Friday.  Literally.

Do you have a three-day weekend?  Maybe you have today “off” instead?   By which, of course, I mean…are/will you be wearing your “weekend pajamas” or your “go to work” pajamas??  I am SURE you’ll be wearing your DRESS pajamas on Easter Sunday, right??  I know I for sure will be! 😎

Since this is pretty much business-as-usual for us, I was able to do a live YouTube video yesterday.  If you were able to join me – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I wanted another card to send as part of the Bee The Blessing Card Drive being sponsored by Stamp-N-Storage and I thought it would be good to make a couple with a more masculine feel.  So….the Come Sail Away suite called!  For the sample card – I used the DSP in Mossy Meadow colors – for the video…I did it again in Night of Navy.  Both are identical and use the Sailing Home, So Sentimental and Ornate Thanks stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

I love this modified gate-card with its belly-band, but I wanted it to be a little more traditional (and easier to display!).

So – I started with a Crumb Cake card base in my normal portrait tent-fold orientation.  The gate-fold becomes the matted card front.

I cut a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock at 5 1/4″ x 8″ and scored it along the long side at 2″ and 6″.  Then I marked each short end at 2 5/8″ and used my Paper Trimmer to cut the “gates” into points.

I cut two strips of Come Sail Away DSP, cut them both into points and adhered them to the gates with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I adhered a second design of the Come Sail Away DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat and then inside the gate-fold with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the entire panel to the front of the Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set multiple times in Crumb Cake ink.  Then I wrapped the strip around the card base and adhered the ends together with Liquid Glue.

The front sentiment, from So Sentimental, is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut with the larger label die in the bundled Stitched So Sweetly Die set.  Over the sentiment, in Crumb Cake, I added the Sailing Home compass.  Then I adhered the label to the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I pulled off the belly band to work on the inside.  On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped a perfect sentiment from Sailing Home in Mossy Meadow.  I added a Crumb Cake anchor and cut it with the next-to-largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Then, I adhered it on the inside with Liquid Glue – ensuring it would be hidden by the belly-band.

I replaced the belly band and added a Sail Away Trinkets anchor with a Glue Dot.  On this Mossy Meadow card, I used a double-length of Line Thread to tie a simple bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  On the Night of Navy version, I used a single-length of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine.

Just a note – I would send this card with the belly band around the just the front of the card base/gate-fold (versus around the entire card).  That let’s the recipient see the card in its best “display mode”!  😉

On the inside of the card, I added a sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I added the anchor in Crumb Cake and the compass in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Sailing Home anchor and compass on the front…

…and more Come Sail Away DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s easy to lose track of the super-cool goodies in the Annual Catalog, what with Sale-A-Bration and the Jan-Jun mini, isn’t it?  But…don’t!  The Come Sail Away Suite – anchored by the Sailing Home Bundle (see what I did there?!?) – is chock-full of wonderful products that are really awesome for creating masculine projects!  The Come Sail Away DSP let me quickly make two cards – using the same stamp sets and designs…

So Sentimental with the WUNNERMUS Stitched So Sweetly Dies, melds in nicely – and, of course, there aren’t enough words for me to express how much I love the Ornate Thanks set and all the perfect sentiments it contains!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style with Thoughtful Blooms Sneak Peek

Good morning, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a great weekend at home planned!  This is our “planting” weekend – we got the peppers, tomatoes and lettuce starts in the beds last night.  The rose, raspberries and blueberries are soaking their roots in preparation for planting.  And – I’ve got flowers started to put in, too!  AND – more seeds coming soon!  I LOVE spring!

Also?  My three hydrangeas all have leaves, so…I didn’t kill them with my not-so-knowledgeable pruning this past fall!  Whoo-hoo.  I’m like…almost a Master Gardener.  Go me! 🙂

Since it’s Saturday, I figured we’d try to get together tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page for a little video time together.  So…I’ll be live at 7pm Eastern and we’ll make a fun-fold that I blatantly stole from my teammate.  We’re going to take a look at the new Ornate Garden Suite…and Thoughtful Blooms.  Yes – I’m seriously in a flowerdy mood.  Take a sneaky peek!

It’s a super easy fun fold – and the Ornate Garden Suite really makes it a stand-out!  So…I hope you can join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  Hoping your week has been good and your weekend is looking to be a good one.  Are you stocking up on water, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, etc? If you listen to the news at all…man – what a goat rope – the media is having a hey-day stirring the coronavirus pot, aren’t they??  I mean – WE built an underground bunker JIC, but…I draw the line at buying 87 cases of water and toilet paper!  Now…87 cases of Dimensionals?  Hmmm…. 😉

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I’ve posted that we have a new suite coming to y’all soon.  It’s an Early Release from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog (yes – that’s right around the corner – Christmas can’t be far behind! 😳😳😳😳).  The Ornate Garden Suite is….gorgeous.  And you can get it on 1 April (unless you’re a Demonstrator – or sign up now, then…it could already be on the way to you!).  I used it to make a Double-Easel Fun Fold card.  Take a look-see:

 

I first saw this fold  from Janie – the Craft Princess out on YouTube.  I watched her video to see the card cuts and then…made it for myself with this gorgeous new suite.  I love the multiple spots available to showcase the beautiful Ornate Garden DSP!  You guys know I love an easel card – so…TWO easels on ONE card? Yes, please! 🙂

The concept is easy – create a large easel card and a baby easel card.  Attach the baby easel to the large easel to act as the “easel stop”.  I made my easel card bases in Old Olive for this one.

On the front of the large easel, I used Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Ornate Garden DSP.

Using the Ornate Layers Dies (which is bundled with the Ornate Style stamp set as part of the new suite), I cut a Terracotta Tile frame.  HINT:  These are very detailed dies – I highly recommend that you grab the Take Your Pick Tool (if you don’t have it already) AND the Die Brush Tip.  You’re going to want it! 😉

Atop that, on Whisper White, are three Tuxedo Black Memento Ink daisies from the Ornate Style set.  I colored them with my So Saffron and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Combo – plus a little Light Calypso Coral.  In the corner is a Terracotta Tile flourish from the Ornate Style set.

The mini-me easel has more Ornate Garden DSP, matted on Terracotta Tile on the front and “inner liner”.  Notice that there is Gold Foil embossing on some of the papers in the DSP pack! Sweet!! 🙂

I stamped a sentiment from the Ornate Thanks set in Terracotta Tile on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly Die (“adjusting” the die to make it a little longer than it actually is!).

I made a figure-eight from Linen Thread wrapped around my hand four times and adhered it to the front of the mini-easel with Glue Dots – then I popped the sentiment over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The easel stop for mini-me is a stacked flower cut with three dies in the new Ornate Borders Die set (which will be bundled with the Ornate Thanks stamp set.

Folks – this stamp set is SO cool – with wonderful phrases in a beautiful scripty-handwritten font – you’ll be able to say Thank You about a gazillion different ways!!

Anywho – I cut the large flower in Crushed Curry (cuz…I don’t have “Bumblebee” colors yet.  Yes – that’s a HINT!!), the medium flower in Terracotta Tile and the smallest in So Saffron.  Then I stacked them up with Liquid Glue, added a new Gilded Gem (from the Suite!) and then popped it into place with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

For the inside, I added another piece of Ornate Garden DSP (I decided to use the same design as the front of the mini-easel) matted on Terracotta Tile to the inside of the large card base.  On a Whisper White die cut frame (a smaller frame from the Ornate Layers set), I stamped one of the many sentiments from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile ink.  I adhered that at the top of the inner liner.  Then I popped the mini-easel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

And that’s it for the card!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more daisies on the front…

…and more pretty Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, y’all!!  I.  Love.  This.  New.  Ornate Garden Suite!  The two beautiful bundles….Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style….are perfectly complemented by the gold-foil accented Ornate Garden DSP.  So many sentiments – such beautiful flowers – and I haven’t even talked about the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  What???

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!  And – if you want this suite RIGHT NOW – then I can help you join the team and get it for yourself!  Just give me a holler!

We have 30 acres of land.  Now – granted – there’s a lot of trees and fenced areas not useful for parking cars/trucks/tractors/equipment/etc.  BUT – there is, indeed, a lot of road and out-of-the-way places, too.

My husband – bless his heart – can, with unerring accuracy – park one of the aforementioned items RIGHT.  SMACK.  DAB.  in the middle of…wherever I need to be able go – on the four-wheeler, with the horses, in the golf-cart.

Un.  Erring.  Accuracy.

And – he doesn’t even need a GPS – a laser – a micrometer….nuthin’.

Apparently – Finn IS his father’s son.

Case in point.

Go ahead – roll the laundry cart past him.

I’ll wait. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Treats, Toil and Trouble for the Amy’ Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month we’re doing Halloween Fun!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

So – okay.  On with the card.

I pulled out the Cauldron Bubble stamp set and bundled Cauldron Framelits – paired them with some Toil & Trouble DSP and some Spooky Bats Punch shapes.  Take a look-see at the Double Easel Fun Fold that I created with them!
