Stampin’ Up! Whole Lot of Lovely Happy Birthday!

Okay folks – NOW I really am packed and ready to roll.

Well – maybe I need to add a suitcase – hopefully with clean clothes in it.

But otherwise I’m completely ready to roll!

Before I hit the road, though, I have a quick little card to share.  Folks – when you need a card quick, lean hard and heavy on our beautiful Designer Papers!  Yesterday I used the Petal Garden DSP Stack.  Today?  It’s the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP – and I added a quick and bold Happy Birthday Thinlit die cut.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

I started out by picking one of the prettiest designs in the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP (in my opinion, of course!!).  Once I had the base for my card, I used the coordinating colors – so handy that they’re printed in the catalog and on the paper packaging!! – and cut a Tangerine Tango card front.

I embossed that panel in the new and beautiful Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF.

Next up, I cut two pieces of my Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and matted them both on Powder Pink card stock.  Then I popped them both over my embossed Tangerine Tango card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my sentiment, I cut the Happy Birthday Thinlits die cut from a piece of Pool Party card stock and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  It looked a little…plain…to me, so I called up Stella and brushed the Clear Glitter all over the die cut,

I tied a small bow from the new Pool Party 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used a flower image from Oh So Eclectic, and stamped it a few times in stamped-off-once Tangerine Tango across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I lightly colored each flower with my Blender Pen – picking up Powder Pink ink from the top of the ink pad lid.  Then I used my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to lightly color the flower centers.

I SNAILd the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Oh So Eclectic flowers across the front…

 

…and some Whole Lot of Lovely DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I think this catalog has some of the prettiest designer papers of any that I’ve seen.  And so many of them!  This Whole Lot of Lovely is going to be a real winner – the designs with the black backgrounds are especially stunning!  And don’t forget about the uber-cool Oh So Eclectic stamp set and Happy Birthday Thinlits die.  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix…

This morning we played at the pond.

He swam and swam – it’s funny because he just goes padding about like a person doing laps.  Not going after anything or even going anywhere.  Just swimming because he can.

He finally got tired, though, and shared that with me in his usual way.

I’m done for a minute, Mom. 😉

That evening, I went and picked up the rental car.  Blessing #1:  I got an SUV. 🙂

Blessing #2:  all my stuff fits!

There’s even room for a suitcase!

Check out those cool new Paper Crates from StampNStorage!  I bought two of them with the 12″ x 12″ hanging file folders.  I have some of every color of card stock and all the DSPs – and Glimmer Paper – and Foil! – all nicely contained and protected!  And the cutouts mean the boxes are much much lighter than the normal paper holders.  Perfect for traveling!

Finn spent some time in the driver’s seat – giving me the look.  I couldn’t even take a picture.  He knows something is up and he doesn’t like it one single bit.

I’m sure going to miss his sweet self. 😦

P.S.  One of the things I packed was my camera phone stand/holder – so I’ll still be doing videos from Florida!  Planning on the first one tomorrow night at 8pm Eastern (fingers crossed I get the time conversion right!).  I’ve got a fun card to share and I’ll give you a tour of my hotel stamping area.  Hope I’ll see you then!

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Happy Birthday Thinlit Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  How goes your week?  We’re rushing towards Wednesday – my hubby is having some surgery that day (tomorrow!!) and I’m trying to get everything done and ready.  Busy days ahead, heh?

One of the new products in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog is the Happy Birthday Thinlit (which coordinates and is bundled with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set).  Just a single, bold and beautiful die…All you have to do is add a little color.  Take a look-see:

I just love this font – it’s very much like the pretty a la carte stamp set called Stylized Birthday, which is one of my favorites!

I played along with three challenges on this one.  The first, from TGIF Challenges, inspired the layout.

And my color palette is from the Just Us Girls challenge.

Finally – the Global Design Project is a theme challenge, and this card works perfectly for that one, too!

I started with some Canson 90lb Cold-Press Watercolor Paper for my card front.  Using my Watercolor Pencils, I added some Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral.  I let the colors overlap – and added some Daffodil Delight to the Calypso Coral to make it a little peachier!

Once I had a lot of color laid down, I used my Aqua Pen to blur my scribbled lines and blend the color some.  Then I let it dry completely.

My sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Thinlit – cut once in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and once in Melon Mambo card stock.  When the card front was completely dry, I used Liquid Glue to add the Melon Mambo die cut, then I added the Dazzling Diamonds cut over the top – offsetting it a little for a shadow effect,

I SNAILd the panel to a Melon Mambo mat, added a few Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

For the inner liner, I pulled out the new Lovely Laurels Thinlits (also available 1 June) and cut the little flourish dies from the corners of a Whisper White panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a piece of Melon Mambo card stock and into my Peekaboo Peach card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

For my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I cut the two little flourishes again – this time from Melon Mambo card stock – and used Liquid Glue to adhere the little cut out pieces to the front…

…and on the envelope flap, I used the pieces of card stock with the negatives of the little flourishes as stencils to sponge a little design in Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight.

Et Voila!  Super quick, super easy, super pretty!  A trifecta!!!  Hope you like – and will be adding this Happy Birthday Thinlit to your wish list!

Finn-Fan Fix…

One piece of getting ready for surgery-day is making sure all the animals are accounted for and taken care of (to my satisfaction!).  In a shining example of “timing is everything” – all the folks who would normally feed the horses and take Finn for the day are out of town.

The hospital is close enough I can feed the horses.

But I was hating the thought of Finn being in his kennel all day – and we’re not sure when we’ll get home tomorrow.

So – he’s going to Doggie Summer Camp!  I got a super recommendation for a spot and we took him yesterday for a visit and…well…an interview!!

It’s the No Place Like Home Kennel – and…it’s awesome!  The dogs are allowed to play with each other (if they’re well behaved – CHECK!) and play in the pond (if their parents let them – DOUBLE CHECK) and they take them for long runs in their huge fenced pasture (CHECK CHECK and CHECK)!!

During the interview (which – as I know you’ve guessed, he passed with flying colors! 😎) he met Ryder – a young Aussie-cross boarder.  

And they played….

…and they played.  Until Finn just stopped to pant.  And grin!

They have a young lady dog coming today that likes to leap off the dock and swim.  I suspect Finny will be in love.  And wet!

It’s an awesome-good spot and I know he’s going to have a great time!

Heck – I hope he even wants to come home when we pick him up!!
