Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Itty Bitty Birthday Card

Mornin’, y’all!  So…breaking news….We’re down to it, you guys.  Today.  Tomorrow.  And…gone!  The Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion that is!  I’ve seen a few joining specials since I came on board in 2014.  But this one really takes the cake.

Or…the BUNDLE, as it were.  Truly – this is an amazing joining offer!  I would so love to have you join us!!  Give me a holler with questions or….to get signed up now! 😎

There are ALSO only two days remaining to earn an EXTRA $25 in Stampin’ Rewards!  That means…when you fill that new catalog Wish List and spend $250 (before shipping and tax) – you’ll find yourself with a cool $50 in free money!!

Okay – promotional plug – done! 😉

I DID make a card for you today (were you starting to wonder??!) – using the stunning Celebrate Sunflowers BUNDLE (ie: one you could pick for FREE!!) – and the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set!  Take a look-see:

 

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

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed in one of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders (the one with the butterflies).  I ran it thru twice – turning the panel to get the entire thing embossed.  Then I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere it to a Bumble Bee mat for the card front.

I embossed a smaller panel in the second of the two Meadow Moments embossing folders, matted it on Bumble Bee and adhered it to the card front with more Stampin’ Seal.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere a length of Cinnamon Cider Ribbon.

On another piece of Crumb Cake card stock, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big flower from Celebrate Sunflowers in Bumble Bee ink.  Then I cut it with the outline die in the bundled Sunflower Dies.

I used the detailed flower die to cut a flower from a piece of Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I also cut a flower center from a Cinnamon Cider piece of the DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the detailed flower to the solid flower – only adhering the middle of the flower and leaving the petals loose.  I popped the flower center on with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays in Cinnamon Cider ink on a piece of Very Vanilla.  Then I fussy cut the two words and edged each little piece with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the sentiment words with Liquid Glue – added a few 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Celebrate Sunflowers in Cinnamon Cider on a Very Vanilla mat.  Then I used the Stamparatus to add the large sunflower in Bumble Bee ink.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another sunflower on the front…

…and I added some Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Celebrate Sunflowers bundle is truly one of the best in the Annual Catalog, don’t you think? Between the gorgeous images in the stamp set – and your ability to cut flowers and leaves with the matching Sunflowers Dies….it’s amazing!  I hope you like!

And – I think this would be a great choice for your FREE bundle, too! 😉

Finn Fan Fix


So…our big “thing” this week has been getting a big load of free compost from the county recycling place.

And mixing it with other stuff.

And putting it in our new flower bed.

Part 1 – get the stuff.  That was the genesis of the wait-to-load scenario from yesterday’s post.

Once we got it home – Dad and son (aka Finn) – unloaded said free compost.

A work-site always needs a supervisor.

So…although the dump trailer got all the way…up to full dumping height – the compost didn’t want to come out.

Here’s where our OSHA supervisor lost control of the jobsite.

Dad – forgetting that he’s not 35.  Or…even 45!…anymore….

Decided this would be a good idea.

And – since he couldn’t get all the compost out from there…

And then – the compost started to move.

Down.

With Dad.

Unlike Mom – who would never had made it that far to begin with and, if she had, would have been on her sizeable hindquarters at this point – Dad just rode it down.  All those years walking rafters and riding young racehorses who weren’t on board with the whole thing…he’s a bit of a monkey.  Even at…not-even-55-anymore!

OSHA supervisor?  No citation?  No warning?  Hello?!?

Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Sneak Peek

Good morning!  It’s Monday and, more importantly!, it’s the day before the day before the new catalog goes live!  New Catalog Eve Eve??  Are you so excited?  I know I am – I made my gotta-have-it-RIGHT-NOW list yesterday.  It’s…well.  Looooonnnngggg!  I can tell you, if I wasn’t already a demonstrator, I’d be cashing in on the Bundle Bash Joining Special and getting that 20% discount, for sure!!

Was that a broad enough hint?!  ROFL!!

Anywho…you MIGHT – when you decide to take advantage of the awesome special, pick Birds & Branches as your FREE BUNDLE!  I made my card with it – and some of the new In Colors – for you to take a peek!  It’s not quite a fun-fold, but…it’s just a smidge different than normal.  Take a look-see:

It’s ALSO kinda hard to photograph.  Let’s try this…. the front is shorter than the back – can you see it here?

The layout was inspired by the sketch side of this week’s FUSION Challenge.

And, since I love a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, I played along there, too!  I went right across the middle row!

I started with a regular Just Jade card base, and trimmed off the bottom 1 1/8″ of the front.

I cut a second piece of Just Jade, the same size as the front of the card base, and embossed it in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next, I used the pretty circle die in the Birds & More Dies set (bundled with the Birds & Branches stamp set), and cut it from the middle of a piece of Bumble Bee paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.

I cut a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and cut the bottom with the edge die in the Birds & More die set.

I cut another piece of Just Jade and embossed it in the Tasteful Textile 3D folder and adhered it to the Cinnamon Cider mat with Liquid Glue.  Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the Bumble Bee piece over top.

I wrapped a length of Cinnamon Cider 1/4″ Ribbon around the panel, securing it in back with Glue Dots.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the shortened card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the little bird from Birds & Branches in Misty Moonlight on Very Vanilla, then colored him with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends combo and cut him with the matching die in the Birds & More Die set.

I created my collage with a couple of wood leaves from the new In Good Taste Elements adhered with Glue Dots, the die cut bird, a double-loop Linen Thread bow, and a Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped two sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set (in the current catalog and carrying over – yeah!!) in Misty Moonlight on a Very Vanilla panel – making sure the bottom sentiment was visible with the card closed.

Slightly over the top sentiment, in stamped-off-once Misty Moonlight, I added my little bird.  Then I used the fill-in stamp over top, in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.  I also used stamped-off-once Crumb Cake to add little bird-feet and a branch!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Just Jade card base, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a repeat of the bird image – but in full-strength ink – on the front…

…and more of the Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh.  My.  Goodness!  How sweet are the little birds – with their teeny tiny bird-feet!! – in this Birds & Branches stamp set??!  And the nest – and eggs!!  Add in the gorgeous circle and edge dies in the bundled Birds & More Dies set and…we have a winner, y’all!

 

I hope you like and have added this one to YOUR long gotta-have-it-right-now list! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday Soft Spring Sneak Peek

Well.  It’s Saturday.  And this post is coming to you from HOME!  Whoo-hooo! And I’ll be headed back north today for Amy’s going away lunch.

Whoo-hoo??  “Yeah” cuz I get to see our team – but… sad emoji that Amy is leaving.  They’re moving to New Jersey.  I’m really truly trying to be happy and excited for their new adventure.  Really.

You’d think we got together every week for coffee or something.  With the exception of our quarterly in-person meetings, our interaction is almost exclusively online and on the phone.  Which won’t change.

But… 🙁 🙁 🙁

I have our Cruise and the trip to Maui next year to look forward to – so…trying to be all positive and stuff.

The struggle is real, people!

So – let’s stop all this false positiveness and get to something I can legitimately be excited about, shall we?  With each new catalog there are Host-Exclusive sets – these can only be purchased using Stampin’ Rewards!  To earn Stampin’ Rewards – you have a workshop or submit an individual order with a retail value over $150!  And then – assuming you’ve done that after 4 June…you might pick one of the host sets from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.

OR – you COULD join my team right this very second – and pick this set – called Soft Spring! – to help fill-out your Starter Kit.  🙂 Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! This is another installment of the Joint Blog Hop between the Happy Inkin’ Thursday and Happy Stampers Blog Hop ladies!  I hope you really enjoy all the inspiration you can get from our talented folks!

I decided to try out some more of the goodies from the Classic Garage suite – the Geared Up Garage stamp set with the bundled Garage Gears Thinlits and the Classic Garage DSP.  Did you know that the dies in the Thinlits will cut out the images on the DSP?  Well – take a look-see!

No cutting was fussy anywhere on this card!! 🙂

As usual, we had a sketch and a color challenge – and could use either or both.  I definitely used the sketch – and…sorta skirted the edges of the color palette!

             

I also think this dovetails perfectly with this week’s Watercoolor Wednesday Challenge!

I started with a piece of the Classic Garage DSP and embossed it using the large gear die in the Garage Gears Thinlits – using the Impressions Pad and thin silicone mat (the blue one) in the Big Shot Embossing Mats set.  Then I matted it on Pumpkin Pie with Liquid Glue for the card front.

The middle layer is another piece of the Classic Garage DSP, matted on Pumpkin Pie and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the banner, I used a third design from the DSP pack, cut it into a banner with my Paper Snips, and then added some faux stitches with my Journaling Pen.  It, too, is adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut the fun large image from the DSP using the large die from Garage Gears and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Geared Up Garage, is stamped in Crushed Curry on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Tailored Tag Punch,  I added the faux stitches with the Journaling Pen and popped it onto the card front wit Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the embellishments – I cut another single gear from the DSP with a handy die.  Then I added two Classic Garage Metal Elements with Glue Dots, stuck the gear on with a little Liquid Glue, and adhered that bow tied with Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon.  Yes, I DO think men CAN handle a bow now and then, especially when it’s all manly black and silver!  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the new Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Crushed Curry to a Very Vanilla panel. Then I cut and adhered a couple more gear groups!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added a “cloud” from Geared Up Garage in Crushed Curry.  Over that, I adhered a couple more gears with Liquid Glue…

…and then I added another piece of the Classic Garage DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This was already a fun suite of goodies – but…that the dies in the Garage Gears Thinlits MATCH the images on the Classic Garage DSP – well…THAT’S amazeballs! It really notches up the awesomeness of the Geared Up Garage and all its friends in the suite!  And – I know you’re going to love all the birthday sentiment options from Itty Bitty Birthdays!  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi Gray’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Mary Deatherage – YOU ARE HERE!

Have fun on the Hop!!
