Stampin’ Up! Vine Design Heal Your Heart Pet Sympathy Card

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  We’ve had a spring snap (not trying to rub it in to my friends who are still cold and snowy!) and so it’s hard to stay inside and work!  I even planted seeds inside to get them started.  Too early?  Well…maybe.  But…couldn’t even resist!

My card today is one I did while we were chatting on my Zoom the Craftroom yesterday (I hope you’ll join us one day if you’re one of my customers who’ve ordered this month!! – and…it was nice to get a little feedback from my friends!).  This is a pet sympathy card – nope – do not even need one right now (wheeew!) but it’s good to have one on hand, right?  I used the pretty Vine Design Bundle, the Cat Punch and…the Heal Your Heart stamp set (free for a few more days until Sale-a-Bration ends on the 28th!!).  All set atop some pretty Love You Always Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Paper Blooms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a theme challenge today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

We’re all playing with Sale-A-Bration products today and I selected the Heal Your Heart stamp set and the pretty Paper Blooms DSP .  These are both freebies at the $50 level – meaning when you spend $50 (before shipping & tax) you could select either of these products.  Now – fun fact – the Paper Blooms DSP coordinates with the In Bloom Bundle in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  So….I called that SAB-Adjacent and used it in my card, too!  Take a look-see:

Here’s our challenge badge!

And – I also let the TGIF Challenge give me a hand!

I selected a card on page 3 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog as my inspiration!

I started with a piece of Paper Blooms DSP that I matted on Night of Navy for the card front.  Then I matted a piece of Basic White on Night of Navy and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few of the fun stitched dies in the Pierced Blooms set to cut out some of the flowers in the Paper Blooms DSP.  AND – I used some leaves and flower dies to cut flowers from the DSP in Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam and Night of Navy.  There’s a design that has big bold circles of color – and you just cut your shapes right out of them!.

Finally, I cut some leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

On a piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped the Heal Your Heart sentiment in Night of Navy and cut it with the label die in Pierced Blooms.  Then I was ready to assemble my collage! 🙂

I started by adhering leaves and a flower with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a Gold Hoop Embellishment with a couple of Glue Dots.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and kept adding flowers and leaves.  It looked like it needed a bow – so I cut one with the Pierced Blooms die – using the Petal Pink circle of color on the Paper Blooms DSP.  Then I added it with a little Liquid Glue.

I adhered a few little flowers here and there around the collage.

Because I could and I love them so much, I added Champagne Rhinestones to the flower centers – and the center of the bow – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped three In Bloom flowers in Petal Pink on a Basic White panel.  I added a couple of Soft Sea Foam stems and some Night of Navy flower centers.  And…Champagne Rhinestones!  Again…because I COULD! 🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Soft Sea Foam card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more In Bloom flowers on the front…

…and a little more of the Paper Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this Paper Blooms DSP pretty?  And the fact that you can cut stitched flowers from it using the Pierced Blooms die set (bundled with the In Bloom stamp set) is a really happy bonus!

And…Heal Your Heart remains one of my favorite sentiment sets!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Touch of Ink Heal Your Heart Sneak Peek Sympathy Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Another busy week has flown by – I DID finally start baking – yeah me! – so…SOME gifts will go out soon.  I fear I’m going to have to GO TO A STORE – cuz….boy have I messed up the whole buy online thing!  I’m still waiting for an order to arrive that was slated to come last Monday, so….  🙄

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis!  🙂

There seems to be a spike in the need for sympathy cards right now, so…that’s what I did with this one.  I started with a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog) and brought in some new goodies.  The Heal Your Heart and A Touch of Ink stamp sets – available on 5 Jan 2021! Take a look-see:

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

And – I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with a piece of the Hydrangea Hill DSP – the striped Highland Heather design – and stamped all over it with the flower image in the A Touch of Ink stamp set. I stamped the flowers in stamped-off-once Highland Heather to get a more subtle tone-on-tone look.

Then I matted the panel on Seaside Spray for the card front.

I cut another piece of the Hydrangea Hill DSP and a piece of Whisper White to 2″ x 4 3/8″.  I punched the tops of both strips with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch – and rounded the bottom corners with the corner-rounder on the Detailed Trio Punch.

I created the “mat” look by cutting the Whisper White tag in half length-wise and then adhering each side to the back of the DSP strip with Liquid Glue – leaving a little white border.

Then I popped the matted tag onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I trimmed a Square Vellum Doily down a bit with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the tag with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Gorgeous Grape ink and cut it out with a Tasteful Labels die.  Then I adhered it to the tag with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the hummingbird outline from A Touch of Ink in Seaside Spray ink.  To color him, I inked the fill stamp in Seaside Spray – stamped it off once on scrap paper – and stamped it over the image.  Then I fussy cut the little bird.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to adhere him – then I brushed him all over with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I tied a bow with some new Gorgeous Grape 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon (available 5 Jan 21) and added it at the top of the tag with a Glue Dot.

A Seaside Spray pearl from the new Pastel Pearls (coming on 5 Jan 2021) on the sentiment tag finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment – one of my favorites! – from the Heal Your Heart set in Gorgeous Grape on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, in stamped-off-TWICE Highland Heather – I stamped the A Touch of Ink flower that I’d used on the front of the card.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and into my Gorgeous Grape card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the A Touch of Ink flower on the front in full strength Highland Heather ink….

…and more of the Hydrangea Hill DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Love that both the A Touch of Ink AND Heal Your Heart stamp sets will be available for FREE in the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Flyer!  They’re both wonderful!

And the Hydrangea Hill DSP is just….stunning!

I hope you like.  And have got ALL these new goodies on your gotta-have-it list for 5 Jan!!

Stampin’ Up! posted this update late in the day on Thursday. 

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.  Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected.  Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

We also have a video message addressing some potential concerns that you may have. This video goes over a comparison of Whisper White to Basic White so you will know what to expect with this change. You can watch the video here.

It’s always hard to say goodbye, but we are excited about the new Basic White product line and we encourage you to try it out! We are confident that you’ll love it just as much as we do.

I’ve got an Online Host Club starting on 1 January (just in time for the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!) and I’ve got openings.  Whoo-hoo!!!

What is an Online Host Club?  Glad you asked!An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host!  And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time.  While earning FREE goodies!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • During Sale-a-Bration – each of your host club orders will earn you AT LEAST one Level 1 ($50 level) Sale-A-Bration reward!
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers! YEP – THIS IS NEW!!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   The launch of a new catalog and Sale-A-Bration is ALWAYS a great time to join a club!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at!

So – the other day, I pulled some homemade Sourdough Pancakes out of the freezer and re-heated them in the toaster oven for Wayne.  I made about one-too-many but I figured if he didn’t finish them – I could have a bite or two of pancake.  With a little warm real maple syrup.

Seemed like a fine plan.

He sat down to eat and I worked on my morning blog posting routine.

Soon, as expected, he started to say he had too much food.

I musta been a little slow on the uptake – cuz before I could say….”I’ll eat them”…..


Took about 30 seconds.


Homemade.  Sourdough.  Pancake.
