Stampin’ Up! Here For You In the Meadow

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope your weekend is dawning bright and clear and with something fun planned!

So this card for today is destined for our friends who…had a bad thing happen to them.  The kind of thing you see on the news.

Not the kind of thing that happens to actual people that you actually know.

On Tuesday evening, a pretty big storm was on its way to us here in Atlanta, but it veered around us, leaving us with no more than some big (BIG) straight-line winds.  Our friends have a hunting camp that they’ve been going to for 25 years or so.  The storm veered straight to it and a ginormous lightning strike hit their trailer and burned it to the ground.  Along with two boats, four jet-skis and all the things they’ve been collecting there all these years.

These aren’t rich folks.  They’re just people like we are.  Who gathered things up and treasured the memories they’ve made there.

Oh,  and they’d planned to go to the camp the next night.  If they had and the storm had been a night later…

So.  I decided I should make them a card.  Since…I’m a card maker!  I used the little sentiment stamp set called Here For You and added some images from In The Meadow.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the CAS-ual Fridays challenge…

As soon as I got this clean and simple card done, my brain started telling me all the things I could have done different/better/more elaborately.  But I think this fits our friends perfectly.

Next time!

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, matted on another Crumb Cake panel, and stamped the mountain image from In The Meadow twice in Crumb Cake ink.  I added a Lace Doily – Very Vanilla side up (I know, it looks white in the picture) – with some Liquid Glue.

I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to position and stamp a sentiment from the Here For You set in Early Espresso at the bottom of the panel.

My art panel is a piece of Crumb Cake, torn to size, and stamped with the sweet deer image from In The Meadow, in Crumb Cake ink.  I used some Liquid Glue to adhere it to a torn Always Artichoke mat.  Finally, I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around it, securing the thread in the back with scotch tape.  I popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a tiny Linen Thread bow with a dab of Liquid Glue.

I added a few Always Artichoke Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Crumb Cake mountain from In The Meadow to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock – this time I stamped it off once first. Over the top, I added a second sentiment from Here For You in Early Espresso.  I inked the stamp and then covered the “I” at the beginning with a piece of Sticky Note – the card will be from Wayne and I, not just me!

I SNAILd the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and into my Always Artichoke card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Crumb Cake Medium Envelope got a Crumb Cake image from In The Meadow on the front…

…and again on the envelope flap.  And I also added a third sentiment (“Well, this just stinks.”) from Here For You in Early Espresso.

Et Voila!  I hate that this happened to them, but I hope this little card – simple as it is – will let them know that we’re thinking about them.  I love the In The Meadow set and the little sentiments in Here For You are great.  They’re the kinds of things people actually say – and I like that!  Hope you like! 🙂

Finn had become a bit of a lap-hug-hog.

He’s always on the lookout for any cats who think they might like to get in my lap and he does what he can to preclude that from happening.

Sometimes it means he has to do a half-lap-hug.  Back half on the floor, front half – the one with the giant wet likker – on the lap.

And bring his toy-of-the-moment with him.

A guy has to do what a guy has to do to keep those pesky cats in line.

The struggle is real. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Hey, Chic Stacker!

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all – we’re racing towards the weekend once again.  This time, I’m not really ready for the weekend to arrive.  Going out of town for three days and…do you think I have my cards ready for the weekend??  Nope.  Not even close!  So – keep your fingers crossed that my creative juices flow the next couple of days, okay?  🙂

Finn is very fast.

Perhaps you didn’t know that.

He’s a speed demon!

I have proof!


He raced around that pile of logs about 5 times, as fast as he could go, carrying that danged stick!

And then…

The natural result of racing around like a fool!  Excessive panting.

Followed by his new favorite thing – ponding!  He drinks and wades and tries to get sticks out of the water.  And this morning, he added – dunking his belly in!  Just a quick little lay-down to cool off quicker!

And make mom get the towel out!

My card for today follows a trend you can see all over Pinterest.  Stacking chickens.

I don’t know why people are stacking chickens so much – it just ain’t natural! – but they are.  So I thought I’d give it another shot.  The Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Hey, Chick gave me the whole cast of characters.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunches of Vintage Leaves

You know what’s cool?

Not Savannah.

Ha!  I’m cwackin’ myself up!! 🙂

It’s Hawmp Day again – and we’re closing in on the weekend.  But – we’re also closing in on the end of the Double Peppermint Rewards Points ordering bonus.  Tomorrow’s the last day, folks!!

My card for today is a….spec card.  Know what that is?  It’s like a Spec House – where a builder builds a house and then hopes someone will like it enough to buy it.  So, this is a Spec Card.  My friend here in Savannah – yep, still have one! – wanted a Just Sayin’ Hello card for his honey.  So I made something I hoped he’d like.  I used some Vintage Leaves and a pretty sentiment from Grateful Bunch and Gift of Love, to make…this.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Greetings In the Meadow Silhouette and…Blog Candy!

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  Days are just flying by – one short week from today, Amy Koenders and I will be winging our way West to attend OnStage Live in Salt Lake!  Where we’re going to get to see the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  Yikes – can you believe it’s that time already?!?  That, of course, means it’s almost time to say good-bye to the current catalog and the 2016 Occasions Catalog – the retiring list will be released on 18 April (right after OnStage).  So, you’ll want to be thinking about getting stocked up!

Well, today was productive.  I updated my Inventory Spreadsheet, alphabetized my stamp sets, and got a new Office Chair!  Yeah!  It actually has padded parts – and it swivels.  And will roll – once I get one of those plastic mat things you put over the carpet.  Makes a huge difference over that wooden kitchen chair I’ve been sitting in.  It’s the little things, isn’t it?

So, the card I have to share with you today is a quick and easy, Clean and Simple birthday card, using one of my favorite Occasions stamp sets – In the Meadow.  And one of the pretty sentiments from Cottage Greetings.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! For the New Two Botanicals for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Mornin’, y’all –  it’s Thursday and that means it’s Blog Hop Day!  All our Happy Stampers are hopping today, so I know you’ve got a bunch of great projects to see today!  Please take a minute to check them all out – and maybe leave us a comment or two.  We love hearing what you think of our efforts each week! 🙂

Yesterday I shared a very elegant Wedding card with you – that I also told you was completely not the right card for my friend – who is getting married this weekend – in good jeans, a nice white linen shirt and a Blue western jacket.  Please don’t take that as any sort of criticism at all – it’s her day and that is such a perfect choice of outfit for her….and she’ll be comfortable and able to relax and enjoy the day as she marries her best friend!  I meant it only to illustrate that yesterday’s card wasn’t right.

I think today’s is.  And since it’s on its way to her – I surely hope she thinks so, too!

I used the Occasions stamp sets In the Meadow and Timeless Textures, as well as the For the New Two set from the Annual Catalog.  I reprised – basically – my color scheme from yesterday, with the exception of the “color”.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Easter Cross

Good Easter morn’ to you all!  Rejoice in this day! 🙂

I have an Easter Cross card to share today – but it’s a bit of a cautionary tale!  It could be titled: Check Supplies Twice Before Beginning.  Or: Always Finish Your Card Front First.  And the main character in this decidedly NON-fiction tale is….Gold Foil.  You’ll see why shortly!

I used several flower makers for this card – the Botanical Builder Framelits, Petite Petals punch flowers and Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack flowers.  And I went back to the In The Meadow stamp set.  Just a reminder – this set is in the Occasions catalog – and is only guaranteed active thru the end of the sale period – 31 May.  Which seems like a long way away – until you realize it’s practically APRIL!  Can you even believe that??  So if you’re wanting this lovely stamp set, get it soon!

Anyway – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! The Wilderness Awaits In The Meadow!

So – I love when someone asks me to make a card for them to give to someone special.  For me, it means that they really care enough to not want a cookie-cutter card from the grocery store aisle.  And that’s cool.  I also really like it – a lot! – when that request gives me an excuse to buy a new goody!  Like the card I have to share with you today.

My friend has a friend who’s been in the hospital – in and out – for the past several weeks.  A long time!  He’s a “dog guy” – I made the leap that he’s a “hunting dog guy” – since those are a lot of the kinds of folks she knows.  So she wanted a card with a dog and the outdoors.

Sadly – I had yet to purchase the The Wilderness Awaits stamp set.  I’ve been so busy acquiring Occasions catalog sets and bundles that I kept pushing that down my list.  So now was the perfect opportunity!  Once it arrived, I paired it with the In the Meadow set – which did come from the Occasions catalog and I very much hope makes it into the next Annual!  I added a few of the great sentiments from Greatest Greetings and….take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful Ride to Congratulate a New Couple!

Good Wednesday to y’all!  Hope that your week is going well.  I’m engrossed in trying to get back into the swing of things at home, receiving my boxes of toys from the post office, setting my stampin’ spot back up (I moved it a bit – and got all my fun new StampNStorage goodies all set up), and trying to kick my traditional post-business-trip cold.  Cuz…why not? 🙂  It really is the only way to experience the entirety of a long trip, don’t you think?

My card share today is one that I did last week in preparation for not having my stuff or the energy to get it all together to be card making for a day or two.  It uses the Wink of Stella “watercolor” technique that I did a few weeks ago (want to see that one?  Here’s the link!) paired with the Beautiful Ride stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  And, cuz I have it – I used some of the new Metallics Glitter Tape!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! What I Love in the Meadow

Happy Huawp day, all y’all!  Time is flying by – except for when it isn’t.  I know that you know what I mean, cause I know that happens to everyone!  It’s almost February.  Hard to believe – but it’s true!  And when it is…the Stamps-N-Lingers ordering special will be gone, baby, gone!

Also coming to an end is the availability of a few fun items in the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  If you don’t remember what they are…check out my post from yesterday!

For today, I pulled out a new stamp set that I’ve been itching to play with.  And also dreading!  I’ve seen so many pretty cards – with superior art and coloring of these images – out on Pinterest…I’ve been a little afraid to throw my offering in the ring.  But…I did it today!  It’s the pretty new In The Meadow stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  And I combined it with a sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set called What I Love.  Take a look-see:
