Stampin’ Up! Springtime Stroll Impossible Card

Hey y’all!  Happy Monday!

Or…something like that. 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your Mother’s Day with me!  If not – here’s a replay of the video.  We made an “Impossible” card and it’s waaay easier to SEE how to do it than for me to try to TELL you!  So…check it!

Stampin’ Up! “Impossible” Springtime Stroll Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, peeps!  Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!  Including my own!

Yesterday was…busy.  First took the Man to the vet for his “Wellness” check.  On the way, the “Low Tire Pressure” warning came on – again.  It’s been doing that for a couple of weeks and I’ve been putting air in it and hoping it would go away.

No.  Hope is not a valid plan.

But – since I have to drive to Huntsville on Tuesday, I figured it was time to fish or cut bait.  Which meant…sit and wait at the tire place while they checked to see if it could be repaired or if it would need to be replaced.

It was a long afternoon.  But – on a brighter note – there was a roofing nail in the tire and they patched it.  So that was good news!

Anyway – tonight we’ll do a Facebook Live video – and we’re going to make a cool fun-fold card (I think you’re going to like it!)

Please make note – we’re going to be Live at 7pm Eastern (that’s an hour earlier than usual!) so I can attend our monthly team meeting at 8!  We’re going to use one of the fun new Host-exclusive sets and some of my fave Garden Impressions DSP.  Take a sneaky-peek:

Stampin’ Up! Banners & Badges Labeler Thanks!

Mornin’, y’all – half way thru the week and the livin’ is easy!  My catalog shares are on their way to their new owners – I know they’re excited to get them!  My kitchen looks more like a kitchen and less like a craft paper and ribbon crime scene.  And I have a bunch of new toys tools to play with!

One of those new tools I got on Sunday from Miss Amy.  She’s always giving us fun new things – she’s the very bestest upline EVER!!  So – I used the new Banners & Badges stamp set, along with the Best Badge Punch (I got it free cuz of Amy – but you can get it bundled for 10% off!).  And I added in some of the new Labeler Alphabet stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms & Floral Boutique Make a Fun Fold Card

Well – it’s happened again.  Monday!  I hope that you all had a great weekend and are ready and refreshed for the week to come.  If not – take heart, there’s only 4 days left.  This one doesn’t count.  It’s already started – you’re up – hopefully you’ve had your coffee – you may even already be at work.  So…it’s practically over!

Before I get to my card – which is one we made yesterday at Amy’s quarterly meeting – I thought you guys might like to see our latest new addition to the menagerie.  You might remember that we were adopted by a goose.  His name is Duck Duck.  Goose.  Yesterday, when we were taking him his evening crack (-ed corn) and the trimmed ends of a mess of green beans, I took his picture.  A few, actually.  He’s gotten pretty bold – he motors right up to the bank of the pond while we’re still there.  Here he is.

He’s quite handsome, yes?  And a little mouthy.  He’s got some definite ideas about dinner time and he’s not at all adverse to sharing them.  That second picture – looks pretty imperious, doesn’t he?

So.  The card.  This one was shared by Sue Prather.  She’s awfully talented – and this card shows it!  It’s a fun fold card, using the new Floral Boutique DSP and a pretty sentiment from the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Floral Boutique Birthday Blooms 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers

To make this card, we started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Pink Pirouette card stock, that’s scored and folded at 2 1/4″ and 6 1/2″ on the long side.  We used a retired punch for the circle, but I’m going to tell you how to do it with the oh-so-cool new Layering Circles Framelits.  Using a 2 5/8″ straight-sided circle Framelit, cut a hole in the card base, lining up the center of the framelit with the 2 1/4″ score line – and cheating it towards the side, as you can see in the picture.  While you’ve got that Framelit out, cut another circle of Pink Pirouette card stock.

Stampin’ Up! Moroccan Botanicals Thank You

Good Morning on this Memorial Day Monday!  I wanted to take a hot second before getting to today’s card to share a Thank You that I made in honor of this day.

Chalk Lines Memorial Day Shaker 4 - Stamps-N-LingersChalk Lines Memorial Day Shaker 3 - Stamps-N-Lingers

As the song says – All Gave Some and Some Gave All.  This day we remember those who gave all in defense of our freedom and the way of life we enjoy here in this great country!  Say a prayer for them today – and for those still with us who are serving still, that they may not join the ranks of those who gave all. 🙂

Now – the card I made today is another Thank You – but one that goes a whole different direction!  I used the new – on Wednesday! – Moroccan Nights stamp set and the pretty Botanical Builder Framelits.  Take a look-see:

I played along with two design sketches for this card – the first drove the layout.  Freshly Made Sketches #238: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Blooming Love Cottage Greetings Thanks

Happy Sunday, y’all – if you’ve come over from Amy’s blog – thanks for stopping by.  Hope you’ll spend a few minutes checking out my card for today – and that perhaps you’ll decide to become a “regular”! If you’re already a regular – thanks so much for electing to spend part of your day with me! 🙂

The card I made today features the beautiful rose image in Bloomin’ Love – a stamp set that was introduced to us in the 2016 Occasions Catalog and that’ll also be with us for the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  The sentiment comes from the Cottage Greetings set – which has some of the prettiest fonts going!  Take a look-see:

I was inspired to build this card by the challenge at The Card Concept, #56: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Awesomely Artistic Layered Love Easel

Happy Friday!  And happy it truly is – cuz I’m at the hotel, jus’ sleepin’ in ma bed!  At least I hope I am – or at least laying in it doing a bunch of nothing!  This has been a….loooooonnnggg week, y’all – and I’m flat tuckered.  This long weekend has been the beacon of hope – the light at the end of the first part of the tunnel.  Four beautiful days off.  Oh.  My.  Goodness. 😉

This card for today is another easel card.  I apologize for the quick duplication – but…my friend here asked me for a card (short notice!) for his wife.  He/they are moving across the country and she’s leaving her teaching job in CA.  He wanted a card to give her.  When I ask him what he wanted to say…he kind of looked blank.  After some prompting, he wants to tell her that he loves her and that he’s grateful for all she does.

Awwww.  That’s totally sweet – even if he needed a little “help” to get there!  Yea – he vacuums and cleans the house, too – he’s one of the good guys!  So, I really wanted it to be special for him and be a bit of a “wow” card – so the easel card made sense to me.  And since it’s so easy…well.  It was a no-brainer.  

I also had the perfect sentiment in mind – from the new (it’s almost here, folks!  Wednesday!!) stamp set called Layered Love.  And One Big Meaning also has a great sentiment.  I pulled Awesomely Artistic for the beautiful images.  Take a look-see:

So – the easel is just a secondary piece of the card!  The Awesomely Artistic flowers definitely take front and center. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Painter’s Palette Fun-Fold Card!

Happy Hawwwmp Day!  The week is half over.  Or…considering that I have Friday off – it’s Over-The-Hawwmp Day!  And I have the weekend off.  And Monday!  So…I am totally psyched to have 4 entire days – in a ROW! – to rest and sleep and make cards and maybe….join 3 million of my closest friends to eat at The Olde Pink House again….  and – did I mention sleeping? 😉

Today’s card is really fun.  And so ridiculously easy that if you haven’t ever made one – the second that you see the “trick” you’ll be all “why the heck didn’t I do that sooner??”  I used a couple of stamp sets on this one….Painter’s Palette (new on 1 June), Suite Sayings, and Watercolor Words.  Take a look-see:

Painters Palette Easel Card 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers


So – before I show you the innards, let’s talk about the front, okay?  I started by SNAILing a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to a Flirty Flamingo mat. And then to a Basic Black mat.

Stampin’ Up! Fun Fold Festival of Trees….and a Surprise Inside!

Okay.  It’s official.  I.  Hate.  Standard.  Time.  Hate hate hate.  That’s because I, as if I were a farmer (no – a REAL one!  Not a little farm with a few horses on it!) want to go to bed as soon as it gets dark.  My body says….nighty night!  Which is not even handy when that happens at 5! 😉  And then it’s still dark until like freakin’ noon.  Slight – very slight! – exaggeration, perhaps.  But it’s pretty late when the sun finally decides to get the heck back up!  In short – the day is short.  The night is long.  I.  Hate.  It.

Please don’t send flames at me if you’re one of those people who love the winter dark.  If such a person even exists!

Okay – so on to my share today.  I saw a fun card on Pinterest.  I tracked down the creator’s blog (Fine Paper Arts) and….did some Google translation from German to English.  And then did my own thing with it!

This card uses the Tree Punch and the Festival of Trees stamp set – which I bought for 15% as a bundled set!  Take a look see:
