Stampin’ Up! White Christmas and….Blog Candy!

Happy Monday!

Sorry to start a blog post with an oxymoron…. 😉

After 4 days off, it’s hard to go back to work – at least it is for me!  I have just enough “slug” in me to kind of like 4 days of “slug”-ness.  Anyway…I hope your efforts to get back into the swing of things are going well!

A final reminder that today is the very last day of the Online Extravaganza – and the final day of Double Peppermints.  You can get all the details down below, including links to the sales, and to the final Flash Sale of Extravaganza – which is also today only!

And that’s the last time I’ll bug you with that – promise! 🙂

One other little admin-y thing.  Today is an Anniversary for me.  Yup.  One year ago, today, I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!  Interestingly (or maybe not?), I did it whilst in a hotel!  Just like I am today!  Hmm….  So, to celebrate the occasion, I’m giving some Blog Candy away.  Read on down to see what’s on the table and how to get your name in the hat! 🙂

Today’s share is a Christmas card – using the Annual Catalog stamp set called White Christmas.  First time I’d used it and I love all the little images in it!  I paired that with the Home for Christmas DSP and came up with….well, take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Versatile Christmas, a Peaceful Pine and a Delicate Ornament To Trim the Tree!

 Well?  How was Friday?  Did you go shopping?  Are you dropping?  Or did you…like I…hit the online stores?  Yea – I didn’t do as much as I needed to – and some of my purchases will not be popular with the ponies, but….I did some!  I hope that if you were out and about that you had fun!

I mentioned yesterday that if I were at home on the day after Thanksgiving, I’d have been decorating the house, putting up the tree, generally transitioning to full-blown Christmas!  Well, since I couldn’t be there doing that, I decided to do an homage to that activity with my card share for today.  So, I used some of the fun Home for Christmas DSP (which is retiring, so get it soon!!), a Delicate Ornament die cut, and a Peaceful Pines stamp.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Wondrous Wonderland for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!


Good Blog-Hop-Thursday-Morning to y’all!  I hope you’re ready for some beautiful projects from all the Ladies-Who-Hop.  At the end of the post are links to all the blogs – be sure to cruise thru all of them, okay?

I did want to share a quick thing that happened today.  By “today” I mean Wednesday, when I’m writing this post.  Which I’m writing for tomorrow.  Which is technically today.  See the difference?  Hint – one has quotes….. 🙂

Anyway – there were multiple sightings of an unidentified object in the skies over Atlanta.  The news mentioned it a few times – at least the local news did.  Not sure about National.  Many people saw it.  Actually, my horses saw it, too.  And they were scared.  Scared enough to break a sweat!  That’s bad.

This was a glowing ball – and it moved quite slowly.  It had a trajectory that was obviously controlled – not at all random.  If you stared at it – it’s image remained in your eyeballs for a while after you looked away.  And it was….warm-ish.  I mean, you could sort of feel heat radiating from it!

Really quite odd.

We may never know what it was.  But, it was weirdly comforting – no threat at all.  I hope it will be back tomorrow. 🙂

So – today’s Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Here’s what we were working to:

12 Nov Blog Hop Sketch

When I first started thinking about what to do for this sketch, I had something completely different in my head.  There was a lot of sponging involved.  I didn’t do that – not even close.  I used some Wonderland images and some of my favorite Home for Christmas DSP designs, and the Sleigh Ride Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Reason for the Season Festive Flower for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop!


Good Blog-Hop-Thursday-Morning to y’all!  I hope you’re ready for some beautiful projects from all the Ladies-Who-Hop.  Yes – I know.  Those are the exact same words I used last week to open up the Blog Hop post.  Let’s call it our little tradition, shall we? 🙂

When this posts, I’ll be starting day 2 of my meeting here in Savannah.  Yesterday, we were done at 11:30.  Yes.  A.M.  After starting at the crack of 9 am.  I’m not entirely sure why day 2 wasn’t in the afternoon….but, not my meeting, so….I’ll spend another day in lovely Savannah!  Which I’m currently spending in my room.  I’ve got a show on the television playing in the background called Million Dollar Real Estate (Listing??) Los Angeles.  Have you ever seen it?  One realtor dude shows up in a different high dollar car – Porsche, Mercedes, Bentley – in almost every shot.  He did one deal where he made – HIS commission – $487,000.  Four Hundred.  Eighty Seven.  THOUSAND dollars.  In.  One.  Deal.

I’m definitely in the wrong line of work.

Of course, he has to drive around in Hollywood traffic.  So….there’s that.

He doesn’t seem to mind.

$487,000.  One deal.


On to the reason you’re here!  Today’s blog hop challenge was a color challenge – we were to use Mossy Meadow, Real Red and Very Vanilla.

5 Nov Happy Stamper Blog Hop challenge

Pretty darned perfect colors for a Christmas card, yes?  And even perfect-er for Home for Christmas DSP, Reason for the Season, and the Festive Flower punch.  Toldja you’d see a festive flower again this week! 🙂  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Reason for the Season Treat Holder

Well, here I am.  It’s Tuesday night and I’m readying my post for the morning.  I’m in Savannah, GA.  Arguably a very food-y city.  Home of Paula Deen.  And….other chef-people.  And seafood!  Lots and lots of fresh seafood!

I arrived around 4:30, tired – not a terribly long drive but one that was undertaken in a rental car that’s annoying.  And smells like an ash tray.  A feature I didn’t notice – for whatever reason – when I picked it up on Monday evening.  After a morning where things just didn’t want to work right as I tried to get out the door.  Fortunately, Bo remains “good”, so that didn’t come into play.  Just not a great morning, okay?

So, I get here tired.  And hungry.  And find out I’m in what appears to be the only Hampton Inn and Suites on the planet with no mini-fridge and microwave in the room.  Wondering what to do with the bottle of froo-froo Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer sitting in my cooler.  And watching it start to rain – buckets.

I solved the creamer issue – they brought a teensy mini-fridge.  Done.

I start to look for suitable dinner ideas.  I’m not far from really anything.  I look thru the “This is Savannah” pretty picture book in the room.  Seafood restaurants.  Steak.  BBQ.  The Savannah Sweet Shop.  So.  Many.  Options!




Final answer – a medium Pepperoni/Sausage pizza and some hot wings from Dominoes.  In my slippers.  In the dry room.  And, because it’s been a crappy kind of day and I don’t want to be here, I self-medicated to take the edge off.  Just a little.

With Cinna-Sticks and frosting.

I am a party animal.  There’s no doubt about it. 😉

But – here’s what I brought along to share with you guys for tomorrow.  Which will be today when you read this.  All Hail the ability to schedule posts to go out the next day!  There’s no telling what kind of gibberish you’d get if I actually typed the posts in the morning!!

This is a great little treat box – using a SU! Tag-a-Bag gift box (like I used for this cute Halloween box) and the Reason for the Season stamp set and bundled Festive Flower Builder punch.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Little Something Pillow Box Note Card Holder!

Welcome, y’all!  Happy Saturday – hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend and the weather to let you do it!  I think we’re going to make a trip to Costco, and I hope we’re going to go see Mr. Matt Damon in The Martian.  I read that book last week – I had to ration myself so it would last…very fast read and I was having fun with it, so I wanted to sit down and devour it, but I also wanted it to LAST!!  A conundrum to be sure.  Anyway – it’s excellent and if you get a chance to read it, I highly recommend that you do! 🙂

For today’s share, I have a note card holder for you.  We made a version of this at the World Card Making Day last weekend.  This is what we made….

A Little Something Note Card Holder - Stamps-N-Lingers

Cute, huh?  Well, I wanted to make a more Christmas-y one, and I wanted it embossed.  With my fave TIEF – the wonderful Woodland!  I put a tutorial over on my Tutorials Page, so head over and see the detailed instructions for making one of these little guys!  If you haven’t been over there, I’ve posted quite a few projects for you to take a look at.

Today’s note card holder uses, as I mentioned, the Woodland TIEF, the stamp set called A Little Something, some Home for the Holidays DSP and a few other little goodies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Flurry of Wishes Let it Snow!

Happy Monday – the biggest oxymoron going, huh!?  I am of the opinion that no one really likes Monday – no matter what it is you have to do on Monday.  I work from home.  And yet – on Sunday afternoon – I get the Sunday afternoon blues.  What’s up with that? 🙂

Today’s share is a winter-y card full of wishes for winter snow.  Here in the A-T-L, snow is a seldom-seen phenomenon.  And when it DOES snow….well, let’s just say it’s way better to just stay at the house!  Cause A-T-L-ians really don’t drive in the snow so good.  But, they THINK they can……..this is what happens….


This was in The Great Snow Storm of 2014.  Like I said – if you’re ever in Atlanta and it snows, snuggle down at home!

But, snow is fun and pretty (as long as it leaves in a few days!) and so, when winter comes around, I always wish it would snow just a little.  I used the new stamp set Flurry of Wishes, and its bundled punch called Snow Flurry to make today’s card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Home for Christmas brings Lots of Joy. A very versatile pair!

Good Wednesday morning!  Hope that you’ve placed your Holiday Catalog orders and are waiting anxiously by the mailbox!  Mr. Postman – bring me some toys!  If you haven’t – well….you know what to do. 🙂

I went back to Lots of Joy and the Home for Christmas DSP – to show you how one DSP can look a lot of different ways.  Just in case you were confused by that!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Joy comes Home for Christmas!

Today’s share is another Christmas Card…can I get a “DUH!” from the blog-i-sphere?? I’m just really loving the Christmas themed stamps and papers in the new Holiday Catalog and they’re inspiring me.  Stampin’ Up! really outdid themselves with this release – I have many items on my list that I’m hoping and wishing will make it to the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  This set today though, Lots of Joy, is in this year’s Annual Catalog (so you could get it right now!) and has several really great sentiments, in beautiful fonts.  And, when paired with the new Home for Christmas DSP (in the Holiday catalog starting 1 Sept), and a great sketch….you get this.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lighthearted Leaves Come Home for Christmas

Welcome to Wednesday!  For today, I have a lovely stamp set to showcase for you – one that is in the Holiday Catalog.  Which means it’ll be avaialble to you on 1 Sept.  Which is exactly 13 days away.  That’s like a blink!  If you have a catalog, are you busily marking your wishlist?  If you are, and you didn’t put this set on the list – I think you might want to reconsider!

This is the only stamp set I used today.  I also used some of the new Designer Series Paper – Home for Christmas to be exact – which you’ll get 6 – 6″ x 6″ pieces of if you order a Paper or I Want it All Catalog share.  See below for the deets!  And go to the 2015 Holiday Catalog Shares page to see everything that’s in this pack of DSP.

So – I combined the paper, the stamp set, and my new fave, the Woodland TIEF and this is what I got.  Take a look-see:

Every Leaf MM 411 Outside 2 watermarked
