Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Trick or Treat for Halloween

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Hawwmp Day!!  I hope you had fun with the 30th Birthday sale yesterday.  It was a good ‘un, huh?

My Ordering Bonus is still going on – so there’s time to gather up some supplies to help with the upcoming Holiday season!  Read on down for the all the details and get in on it before it goes away on the 28th!

I thought it made sense to do another – maybe the last one? – Halloween card, since it’s right around the corner.  I used some fun Toil & Trouble DSP and images from the Cauldron Bubble and Trick or Tweet stamp sets (love this cute set!).  Take a look-see:

It’s just a…special kind of week, eh?? 🙂

My card today is quick and easy-peasy for Halloween!  It started with some Toil & Trouble DSP and then pulled some elements from the Takeout Treats bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Making Every Day Bright for Halloween!

Hey guys – Happy Tuesday!

Hope y’all took advantage of the new goodies in the Clearance Rack – not least of which is a short-supply of Fast Fuse Adhesive (and refills!).  If you did NOT – I suggest you head over and take a look-see at the new items before your faves are gone!  Here’s a handy-dandy link.

I’m a helper that way! You’re welcome. 😉

So – you guys probably know me by my Stampin’ Up! name:  the Queen of Clean.

ROFL!!!  HA HA HA!

CAS is SO not my thing!

Except for today.

TODAY – it’s my thang.

Do whatcha gotta do…

Sorry…

I pulled out the cute little Making Every Day Bright stamp set which, OBTW – just so happens to coordinate with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch that you can get bundled with the Making Christmas Bright stamp set.  So – buy that bundle.  Buy this set.  And make this!  Take a look-see:

Okay – to be fair, to make this you’ll also need a sentiment stamp set – I picked Itty Bitty Greetings!

This one is quick so…buckle-up, Buttercup!

I started with a panel of Whisper White card stock and, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamped the “cord” image from Making Every Day Bright twice.

I pulled out my Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie ink pads and stamped the solid lightbulb image in alternating colors.  I also stamped a Mango Melody bulb on a separate piece of Whisper White.

Going back for my Tuxedo Black, I stamped the sweetly-spooky little spider and web on that Mango Melody bulb and cut it out with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.

Also with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, I cut out “bulb tops” from some Black Foil, which I stuck onto the top of each bulb with little dabs of Liquid Glue.  I trimmed the excess off the edges and matted the panel on Mango Melody.

I popped my spider-stamped bulb on top to the “cord” with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Then I tied a bow from the Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it to the top of my spider-bulb with a Glue Dot.

I stamped the Itty Bitty Greetings sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, added a clear Epoxy Droplet and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a little more of the Making Every Day Bright light strand across a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to mat the panel on Mango Melody and then into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Making Every Day Bright lights…

….and I added a few more onto the envelope flap.  Cuz why WOULDN’T I?!?  🙂

Et Voila!  I TOLD you it was quick and easy.  And even I – the so-not-the-Queen-of-Clean, love this card!  The simple color scheme is very appealing, don’t you think?  I love this Making Every Day Bright stamp set – it’s got so many possibilities!  I hope you like!

CLEARANCE RACK REFRESH

Clearance Rack

New items have been added to the Clearance Rack in the online store.  Supplies are limited, and with discounts up to 60%, products will go quickly. Shop now and stock up.


FAST FUSE ADDED TO CLEARANCE RACK (WHILE SUPPLIES LAST)

Fast Fuse Adhesive

If you’re like us, you thought the days of Fast Fuse were done at Stampin’ Up! (You know . . . because we had already retired the product and everything!) However, our vendor reached out to us because they manufactured a surplus of Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and they offered to sell their excess Fast Fuse inventory to us. We took them up on their offer and purchased 2,500 Fast Fuse applicators and 72,000 Fast Fuse refills.

One of the reasons SU! decided to buy this product was because of feedback they received letting them know that some of you still wanted to purchase Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and this was the perfect opportunity to make it available once again through the Clearance Rack. Fast Fuse refills will be available to you for more than 50% off their original price! Because supplies are limited, you should go right to the online store to place your order instead of waiting to place a workshop order.  These’ll go fast, y’all!

See what I did there?  You’re welcome.

Get them right now while they last!  Order direct thru my Online Store with these links! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix

A week or so ago, I made a fun Halloween card using what I think is one of the cutest images ever!

I really just LOVE that little ghost!

Well – when I was done with the card and went to tidy up…the little ghost had ghosted me!

He was flat gone!

I looked high.

I looked low,

I scoured the waste bins at my desk.

I got on my hands and knees.

I looked suspiciously over at The Man.

Yes – I truly thought he’d absconded with my little ghost.

After a day or two went by, I resigned myself to having an incomplete stamp set.

And I was seriously bummed.  I hate losing stuff – and I hate incomplete sets of stamps.  Or dies.

I mean – do you buy another set?  Oh the decisions.

A couple days ago, I was making another card and needed my Watercolor Pencils.

The box came off the shelf and…

I feel sorta bad for doubting the Man.

Oh wait – no I don’t.  We all know it’s more a matter of “when” not “If” he really DOES do some absconding!

It’s just what they do!

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!

Before I get going – let’s just acknowledge the historical import of this day in the history of our Country.  I know I will always remember that day – where I was, what we were doing, what I felt as I raced to work – hoping my boss/friend hadn’t already gotten on an airplane and that the folks I knew were in D.C weren’t at the Pentagon.  I know y’all remember it as well.  As we must.  We must never – ever – forget.

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!

What I love about Double-Easels is that – with just an extra piece or two of card stock and a few extra score-and-folds, you’ve got a WOW card!

I started with the Double Easel in Basic Black.  I cut a piece at 4″ x 10 1/4″ and scored and folded it at 5 1/4″ x 7 3/4″.  Then I matted three pieces of new Toil & Trouble DSP on Granny Apple Green and adhered them to the easel.

I cut a piece of Copper Glimmer Paper from the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Pack with my Circle Layering Framelits and adhered it to the front “mountain” fold with Liquid Glue on just the bottom portion.

I stamped the sweet little witch from Cauldron Bubble in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Whisper White and colored her with my Light and Dark Smoky Slate, Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Pumpkin Pie and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends.  Then I cut her out with the matching die in the Cauldron Framelits.  I also cut a cauldron and a kitty from one of the pieces of Toil & Trouble DSP (how cool is that?!).

I scooped up a little Shimmery White Embossing Paste and colored it with a drop of Granny Apple Green Ink Refill – then I sort of piled it onto the “stuff” pouring out the top of the cauldron – I used a toothpick to build it up!

From some Black Foil, I cut a spider web from a Cauldron Thinlit and a few Spooky Bats punched shapes.

I used Liquid Glue to build the little “scene”.  Yep – no dimensionals….yet! 😉

I removed the “hangar” from a Spider Trinket and adhered him with a Glue Dot to the Black Foil spider web.  The sentiment, from Cauldron Bubble is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and snipped out.  I used a Glue Dot to adhere two of the words to the bubbly stuff.

Across the large panel, I adhered a length of new Black 5/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon, using a couple of Glue Dots to adhere it to the back of the panel.  Then I added a new Snowflakes & Stars Wire Element with a Glue Dot and another Spooky Bat with some Liquid Glue.  A bow, adhered with a Glue Dot, finished it off.

On the inside, I stamped the cauldron from Cauldron Bubble in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel, then I colored it with my Light and Dark Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends.  I added the rest of the fussy cut sentiment words with Liquid Glue and stamped the second Cauldron Bubble sentiment underneath in Tuxedo Black.

I matted the panel on Granny Apple Green and Basic Black with Liquid Glue and then adhered the panel into my Highland Heather card base, popped the double-easel card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Cauldron on the front….

…and some more star-strewn Toil & Trouble DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now – it appears there are a lot of steps here – and there sort of are.  But – those are “cake decorating” steps.  The “cake” itself (the actual double-easel) is easy peasy.  I just sort of got carried away with all the fun goodies in the Cauldron Bubble bundle and the spooky-cool Toil & Trouble DSP!  You can make your double-easel as simple or complex as you like.  Just….MAKE a double-easel!  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Bubble PeekABoo Fun Fold Card

Well – it’s back.

Monday, that is! Bleh!

Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week.

Don’t suppose it really matters if you’re NOT ready, cuz…

Yep.  It’s gonna happen!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video – thanks for spending part of your weekend with me!  We had a good time, I think!  If you weren’t able to be with us, but would like to see how to make today’s Fun Fold, here’s the link to the Memorex version on YouTube!

The Peekaboo fun fold is kind of all over Pinterest and YouTube right now – lots of videos to watch. Which I did!  And then I made my own!

I’ve actually made two now, both with the new Cauldron Bubble stamp set and some fun DSP from the Toil & Trouble DSP in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  Take a look-see.

This is the one I gave you the sneak peek of yesterday morning – all Black and Highland Heather and Smoky Slate!

Then I changed up the DSP and the color scheme in the video.

For both of them – I did some tone-on-tone stamping on the front with the cat or ghost image from Cauldron Bubble – Pumpkin Pie on Pumpkin Pie or Highland Heather on Highland Heather!

This kind of card is a lot easier to ‘splain in a video (which I do!) – so I’ll just share a few more pictures – and the card cuts are all down below!

I used the new and oh-so-cool Black 5/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and some Black Foil on both cards, as well as the adorable (and not even a little bit scary!) Spider Trinkets!

You can see that the layout is the same…

…as is the technique to make the mechanism work!

As usual, I decorated my Whisper White Medium Envelopes with images that coordinate with my cards…

…and I added the matching Toil & Trouble DSP to the envelope flaps!

Et Voila!  So – this is SUCH a fun card – with a surprise for your recipient when they open it up!  And – since it’s really pretty easy to make – you NEED to do one for yourself!  The video shows you how to “make the cake” – and I’ve used Halloween themed images from Cauldron Bubble and the Toil & Trouble DSP to “decorate the cake”.  But – you can make your cake and decorate it however you like – Thanksgiving!  Christmas!  Just-cuz-it’s Tuesday!!  Have fun with it.  Hope you like!

TTFN

We cut and chopped shares this weekend!

The men in my life (well…two of the four men in my life!) dealt with the work quite…differently.

Guess which one is going to Greece with me next year?!?

Just sayin’!

Stampin’ Up! Lacy Tricks and Tweets for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

 

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge – and I suspect you’re going to see a lot of 2018 Holiday Catalog sneak peeks.  So…I hope you’ll check out everyone’s projects when you’re done here!

I pulled out a cute little stamp set I just HAD to order when I was in California and then never opened and inked!  It’s the adorable Trick or Tweet set and it’s a fun take on Halloween.   I love it with some new Toil & Trouble DSP and a little boost from the Spooky Sweets set.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch!

I started with some Granny Apple Green (is this not just the BEST green!?!) paper from the new Toil & Trouble DSP, matted on Basci Black for the card front.

Then I took a smaller panel of Basic Black and cut the edge with the wonderful Delicate Lace Edgelits.

I cut a smaller piece of Whisper White and, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamped the so-cute elephant from the Trick or Tweet set.  And she needed to be holding a jack-o-lantern snack bucket, too.  So I added that as well!

I used my new Light and Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends (these are in the 2018 Holiday Catalog) to color her.  I also used both of my Pumpkin Pie Blends for the snack bucket. And she’s rocking Granny Apple Green wings, a mask and…in a surfeit of accessorizing coordination – Granny Apple Green toenails! 🙂  I just love that we’re getting more and more fun colors in the Stampin’ Blends, don’t you?? 🙂

I pulled out the Spooky Sweets stamp set (also in the new Holiday Catalog – coming live to you next week!) and added some spooky Granny Apple Green “mist” with the splatter stamp.  I inked the stamp and stamped-if-off-once before I stamped the panel each time.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the die cut Basic Black panel and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Trick or Tweet, is stamped in Tuxedo Black on Granny Apple Green card stock and punched with the Classic Label Punch.  It’s adhered with Liquid Glue.

I used my Bow Easy to tie a double-loop bow from the new Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I colored some Pearl Basic Jewels with my Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend and added them to finish off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment – this one from the Spooky Sweets set – in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel.  Around the edges, I added stamped-off-once “mist” in Granny Apple Green.  Then I added some full-strength “mist”, too.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Spooky Sweets mist in both stamped-off-once and full-strength Granny Apple Green on the front…

…and on the back, I added a veritable miasma of mist – and some more of the Toil & Trouble DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Look at that face!  Pretty hard to be too awfully scared of her – or any of her friends in the Trick or Tweet stamp set, isn’t it?  And the Spooky Sweets bundle – with it’s scary Spooky Bats Punch – is a lot of fun, too!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Spooky Cat and Bubbly Brew for the Stamp Ink Paper #120

Mornin’, y’all!  I’ve got two projects to share with you today!  This one is for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge this week!  Come back in an hour or so and check out my card for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!  

This week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge was a color challenge and I used the Spooky Cat stamp set and matching Cat Punch, plus some Spooky Night DSP.  Take a look-see:

Can you guess the colors?  Check out the badge for the Stamp Ink Paper #120 challenge.  Be sure to stop by the blog site to see what the other Design Team members have created and to play along, too!  Can’t wait to see what y’all create! 🙂

I sort of loosely borrowed my layout from the MFT Card Challenge:

I started with a fun design from the Spooky Night DSP and matted it on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock for the card front.  I cut a Foil Snowflake in half (-ish!) and adhered it with Liquid Glue – with the Very Vanilla side up.  Then I wrapped a length of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around it, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

Next I cut a large Stitched Shapes Framelits die circle from Very Vanilla and a Lemon Lime Twist scalloped mat using the Circles Layering Framelits.

Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the little three-beaker image from the Spooky Cat stamp set three times across the bottom of the Stitched Shapes circle.  Then I stamped the “liquid” and bubbles into each beaker.  I used Lemon Lime Twist, Pumpkin Pie and Peekaboo Peach inks.  Then I added the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie.

I adhered the sentiment circle to its mat with Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the card front with a little more Glue.

On a piece of scrap Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the sentiment-filled cat image from Spooky Cat in Tuxedo Black ink and punched it out with the matching Cat Punch.  I used my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker to edge the shape and then popped him on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

One large Black Rhinestone Jewel finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the Spooky Cat witch’s hat in Tuxedo Black ink and colored the buckle with my Lemon Lime Twist Marker.  I also added another Black Rhinestone Jewel.  Who says you can’t have a jewel inside the card??!

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Spooky Cat witch’s hat in Tuxedo Black and Lemon Lime Twist on the front…

…and a touch more of the Spooky Night DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  A mad scientist Halloween cat?!?  It could happen!  This Spooky Cat bundle – with the Cat Punch – is so cute and fun.  Nothing scary about it, really!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Cat-oween for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Knew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Halloween!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see who went spooky and who went nice, okay?  

I decided to use the Cat Punch and a few pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits to make a sorta sweet and not-at-all spooky card.  Take a look-see:  

I played along with a couple of sketches on this one.  

The first, from Sunday Stamps, kind of loosely inspired my color choices:  

My layout comes from the folks at the TGIF Challenge.  

I started with a piece of paper from the Painted Autumn DSP and Fast Fuse’d it to a Night of Navy mat.  Then I cut a Delicate White Doily in half and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue – leaving space between the halves so the doilies would peek out from my center panel.  

Next up,  I cut the little cross-shapes out of the corner of a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, using the die in the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.  To make my background, I used some Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie inks to stamp the leaves images from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set, and added the sentiment from Spooky Cat in Night of Navy.  The little speckles and splotches around the sentiment are actually the bubbles rising from the Spooky Cat beakers – stamped in Soft Sky!  Then I Fast Fuse’d it onto a Night of Navy mat and popped it over the doilies with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now the cat.  When I first started making a card for the hop, I thought I wanted to play with the Just Us Girls challenge which asked for Watercolor Block stamping.  So I inked up one of my acrylic blocks with Pumpkin Pie ink, spritzed it with water using my Mister, and stamped it down on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  

And then I changed my mind and went another direction.  Specifically in the direction of this card!  

But I had that paper…and I needed a cat.  So…out came the Cat Punch and all of a sudden – calico kitty!  I added a Night of Navy face with the little stamp in the Spooky Cat stamp set and adhered her to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then is was time for the pumpkins.  I cut a large pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie – and adhered it to some Peekaboo Peach card stock then fussy cut the excess – and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I cut a star-strewn Cajun Craze pumpkin and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally – I stamped a Soft Sky pumpkin on Very Vanilla, added a Jack O’Lantern face in Night of Navy and cut it out with the die in the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.  He’s added with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and a little Liquid Glue – and finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze leaf from Pick a Pumpkin on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I added a strip of the Painted Autumn DSP which I’d matted on Night of Navy.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelop got a Soft Sky Pick a Pumpkin pumpkin – complete with Night of Navy face.  Then I cut a quick sticky note mask and covered the pumpkin, then stamped a Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze leaf over the top…

…and I added another piece of Painted Autumn DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m not sure, but…this may be a personal record for me for making Halloween Cards!  But – if you’re going to make them, then it makes sense to use uber-cute stamp sets and Thinlits like you’ll find in the Pick A Pumpkin bundle.  And don’t even get me started on the Spooky Cat bundle – love love love!!  Hope you like!

Scroll on down for the card cuts and all the products you’ll need to make this one for yourself!

Stampin’ Up! Spooky Cat Halloween Moon

Happy Friday, y’all.  If you’re in Harvey’s aftermath or bracing for Irma – my thoughts and prayers are with you.  My friends in Florida…stay safe!

My card today is simple and fast.

My day yesterday was complicated and long – so simple and fast was the order of the day.

I’ve seen some cards out and about using the new Cat Punch in the same way I’ve used it today.  I thought it was so cool and had been wanting to make my own version.  So – this seemed like the day to do it.  I added a few pieces and parts from the bundled Spooky Cat stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Buckle up, buttercup – this is going to go quick!

I started with a Crushed Curry card stock circle cut with the largest die in the Circles Layering Framelits.  Then I punched the cat silhouette with the Cat Punch.

Using my sponge dauber, I added a little bit of shadowing on my moon with Crushed Curry ink.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals (Mini and Regular) to pop the moon over a Basic Black panel.

I matted the card front on a Crushed Curry mat with Fast Fuse, then wrapped some Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine around the panel 3 times, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

I used a Glue Dot under the three strands near the left side of the card to draw them together (like they’d been tied together).  Over that, I added a bow tied from three strands of the Baker’s Twine.

The sentiment, from Spooky Cat, is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Crushed Curry strip.  I snipped banner ends and then popped it on the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Simple doesn’t have to mean no bling at all – so I added a single gold star Metallic Enamel Shape to the corner.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I used the negative space of my moon circle as a stencil and sponged a “moon” in Crushed Curry on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I added the fun cat image from Spooky Cat.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another sponged moon on the front – along with some cat eyes from Spooky Cat in Tuxedo Black…

…and I added more cat faces to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I fell in love with this technique the minute I saw it – so it was just a matter of time before I used it on a card of my own.  And I kinda love it!! Spooky Cat and the awesome new Cat Punch…Winner winner!  I hope you like.

I’m just going to share a cute picture of the man.

From soon after he came to live with us, he’s liked getting under my chair.

Recently he’s started really GETTING UNDER my chair – and adopted the “leg hug”.

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You in the City!

Happy post-Eclipse Day!  I hope you enjoyed the event yesterday, wherever you were.  We pretty much watched it on television – cuz they were showing some pretty spectacular images!  Pretty cool.

My card today is the one that I gave to Matt on Sunday – with a couple of gift cards in it – Home Depot and Bed, Bath and Beyond.  Both seemed appropriate for setting up a new house!  I used the In the City host-exclusive set, and a bunch of elements from the At Home With You bundle.  On the inside is a sentiment from the Home Life stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

I designed the card based on the FabFriday challenge – making a pocket for the gift cards.  

Screen Shot 2017-08-21 at 17.49.54

If you look – the gift cards are the “embellishment” on the right side. 🙂

I started with a Crumb Cake card base, and stamped a couple of the images from the In The City stamp set in Crumb Cake across the front.

The angled panel is a piece of Crushed Curry that I embossed in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and then added some faux stitches with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I stamped the door from the At Home With You set in Early Espresso onto a piece of Wood Textures DSP and cut it out with the die in the matching At Home Framelits.  

I popped the Crushed Curry panel onto the card base with Foam Adhesive Strips (I only used the foam on the top, bottom and left side – leaving the right side open for my gift cards) and then adhered the cut door with Liquid Glue.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

Then I got busy decorating my front door.  I stamped all the images from the At Home With You set in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I pulled out a plethora of Stampin’ Write Markers to color everything:  Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pear Wild Wasabi, and Tangerine Tango.

Once everything was colored and cut out with their matching dies in the At Home Framelits, I adhered everything with Liquid Glue and some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my sentiment, I cut the word using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits – cutting three of them from Cajun Craze and stacking them with Liquid Glue.  I brushed it with my Clear Wink of Stella and adhered it to the front with Liquid Glue.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

I added a little Linen Thread Bow and a Touches of Nature Element with Liquid Glue.  Sticking my gift cards in completed the card!  

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Home Life stamp set in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla mat.  Over the sentiment, I added more images from In the City in Crumb Cake.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

I added some more faux stitches in Cajun Craze, Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and then into the card base, and that was it for the card.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more In the City Crumb Cake images across the front.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

…and then I added some more Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Congrats on Your New Home - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

Et Voila!  There’s more than one way to give someone some gift cards, yes?  And it seemed awfully appropriate to use the At Home With You bundle, Home Life and the In the City host-set.  I know Matt liked the card – it even got a spot on the refrigerator in his new house!  Hope you like, too!

Finn-Fan Fix  

So, today, while Wayne and I were looking thru a double-filtered welding helmet watching the not-to-be-seen-again-for-7-years eclipse, Finn was…bored.

I mean – nothing was happening.  It wasn’t particularly dark.

No aliens showed up.

No angels sang – no power went out.

Pretty nondescript kind of day.  

This is how his sister dealt with the event.

Wishful thinking.  We were hoping to see this…

What we really saw was….dim.

Just…dimness everywhere for about 2 minutes.  Even looking at the sun – we saw no corona.  No “diamond ring”.  Just a sliver of sun.

Kind of a let-down.

Finn’s response?

Let’s pull something out of the garden and see if anyone notices…
