Stampin’ Up! A Nice Cuppa Thanks for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Mornin’, y’all –  it’s Thursday and that means it’s Blog Hop Day!  Welcome back for another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!  I hope that once you’ve perused my offering you’ll check out all the other projects from the ladies-who-hop (and Sandi’s back!! 🙂 )!  For the moment, grab a cuppa something cozy and settle in for a spell.

We all worked with a color challenge filled with bright colors – colors that just called me to the Have a Cuppa suite of goodies in the Occasions catalog.


See?  So, I decided to make a thank you card – I’m always needing one for something these days! – and hit the Cups & Kettle Framelits and the A Nice Cuppa (that’s awkward phrasing, isn’t it??) stamp set that I got all bundled up.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Friends, Flowers and Party Pants Birthday!

Good Monday to y’all – did that weekend just fly by or what?!?  I hope that you had a chance to rest in addition to those pesky gotta-get-’em-done-before-Monday things that might have been on your list.  And maybe even do something fun!

My card share for today is a quick and simple one, that uses the fun new Occasions stamp set called Friends & Flowers.  This one is kinda cool, because it coordinates perfectly with the Festive Flower Builder Punch – remember that one from the Holiday flyer?  The one that made the cool Poinsettias??  Like this one right here!  So I combined that stamp set with some paper from the Have a Cuppa DSP stack….and some other little fun things from the new Sale-A-Bration set called Party Pants – and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Love You, Sew Let’s Paint the Town!

Good Friday, to you all!  Today, I have a cautionary tale to share with you.  It’s a story about a girl.  Okay – a semi-old woman.  A story about a semi-old woman, with an age-old problem.  I call it….The Day Mary Had Get-The-Card-Done-itis!

A little background info is in order.  In the world of aviation, those who fly airplanes (AKA pilots), if they do so long enough, will – one day or another – encounter a situation that is 1) beyond their limits as pilots to deal with, 2) exceeds the capabilities of their aircraft or 3) is just too dangerous to go thru/over/around.  Now most of the time (I’d even say 99.9% of the time!), the prudent pilot will return from whence they came or land immediately.  Choosing to become one of the “old pilots” (perhaps you’ve heard the saying….there are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots?).

But sometimes, and it happens to all of us….we make a bad decision.  The kid’s birthday party is tonight.  It’s my anniversary and the wife/husband is going to be sooooo mad if I don’t get there.  We’re leaving on vacation tomorrow and I have to pack the car.  We decide that we “must” get home, no matter what.


If we’re lucky – or the Big Guy is flying right seat – we make it thru in spite of ourselves.  If not…well….you know.

Now – what I experienced today had zero, zilch, nada by way of potentially fatal outcomes.  Which is good.  Cuz I was seriously afflicted with the “-itis”.  The Must-Get-the-Card-Done-itis “-itis”.  Pile on to that the fact that I’m tired and…well.

And, just to be completely clear – I didn’t need this card to be done today.  I already have two cards ready to go in the line-up, so today (Friday) was covered.  Just sayin’.

So in this post, I’m going to share some tips, and some “off-ramps” – so perhaps you’ll recognize when you’ve been afflicted with the “-itis” and will turn back and land.

I’d had an idea in my head for a bit about a card using the fun paintbrush stamp in the Love You Sew Hostess Set from the Annual Catalog.  So when I saw the CAS(E) This Sketch #158, I knew that it was time to implement my plan!

CTS 158 Sketch

I woke up a little later than my norm – the late nights are starting to tell on me!  Talked with Wayne on the phone for a bit, watched a little tv to get fully awake.  Thought I’d leave a little early and make a quick run to Target for some groceries and stuff.  You know – domestic Goddess stuff! Then I thought – hey, I’ve got an hour, I’ll just knock out a card. 🙂  Here’s where the ensuing twisty road got me.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Have a Nice Cuppa Tea-Riffic!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope that your weekend dawned bright and clear and that you’re getting ready to enjoy some much deserved rest and relaxation!

Last week, when I did my Blog Candy give-away (if you haven’t entered, there’s still a little time today – check it out here!) – many of you mentioned the A Nice Cuppa stamp set and the oh-so-cute matching Framelits called Cups & Kettle as being some of your very favorites!  Well, I really like that bundle, too, so that’s what I used – along with some of the coordinating Have a Cuppa DSP – to put together today’s share.  Take a look-see:
