And 2020 is welcome to depart the fix, and good riddance, wouldn’t you say??

Stampin’ Up! Simply Potted Succulents Sneak Peek Thank You

Mornin’, y’all – hope you’re looking forward to a short week if you have to work!  If not – I hope you’re enjoying leftover Christmas dinner and the lights on your tree!  We “solved” our tree light issue by….just not turning them off!  We turn them to multi-colored when we go to bed – even from the living room the white lights are too bright in the bedroom for Wayne.  Me?  I’d probably string twinkle lights over my headboard and sleep with them on year round.  😉  Then I put them back on white when I get up!  Hopefully we can get a power adaptor before the next holiday tree-time!

Or…a new tree!

Speaking of trees – today’s card has no trees on it.  It has…succulents!  Simply Succulents, to be exact – cut out with the bundled Potted Succulents Dies.  I also used some Sand & Sea DSP to create a…desert feel for my thank you card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Wishes Sneak Peak with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players –  Claire’s got a cool color challenge for us all … I hope you’ll come and play along with us!  While the challenge seems like a great New Year’s card – I came up with something a little different!  What will you make??  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

For this one, I pulled out the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and the Dragonflies Punch!  These items will be available on 5 Jan 2021 in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  And – for the BIG impact – I used a piece of the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper – which is also part of the Dandy Garden Suite!  Take a look-see:

Here’s the Paper Players color challenge just in case you weren’t able to figure it out! 😉

My layout is loosely based on the Global Design Project sketch this week.

I started with a piece of Basic Black that I matted on Silver Foil for the card front.

Next, I selected a panel of the new Dandy Laser-Cut Paper and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to a piece of Basic Black card stock the same size.  Then I matted that on Silver Foil and popped it onto the card front with the Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from Dragonfly Garden in Versamark Ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

Tip:  when you heat emboss, the powder turns into a liquid-y form until it cools off.  Be careful to not stick your fingers in it.  Trust me.  It won’t run or anything, but it WILL smear/come off.  Once it’s good and cool, you’re good to go! 😉

So – when it was cool, I cut it with a die from the Tasteful Labels die set.

I cut two lengths of Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots.

Then I popped the sentiment over top with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched a bevy of bitty dragonflies from Silver Foil using the Dragonflies Punch.   Two of them I adhered to the sentiment with Liquid Glue and the other three I popped on with mini Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And – that was it for the card front!

I DID toy with adding some Rhinestones, but….held myself back!

On the inside, I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the little dragonflies and a second sentiment from Dragonfly Garden on a Whisper White panel.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Silver Foil mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Tuxedo Black Dragonfly Garden dragonflies on the front…

…and a large dragonfly on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Dandy Garden Suite – with the Dragonfly Garden and the Dragonflies Punch as an integral part! – is absolutely one of my favorite new goodies in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog!

 

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

I hope you like!

Now…take a look at what the rest of the team has to offer!  Then pull out your ink and papers and have a little fun! 🙂

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK IS RETIRING!

SHIMMERY WHITE 8-1/2" X 11" CARDSTOCK

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!

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • 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!

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!!

Finn Fan Fix 

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.

Gone.

Homemade.  Sourdough.  Pancake.

WITH WARM MAPLE SYRUP.

Just…gone.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebrate!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to…make a birthday card!  And I decided to use a brand new stamp bundle – so new, in fact, that…unless you’re a SU Demonstrator…you’re going to have to wait to get it until the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog goes live on 5 Jan 21!  I picked the gorgeous – stupendous! – Sand & Sea Suite.  The anchor is the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and the Sand & Sea DSP.  There’s also gorgeous Pearlescent Specialty Paper and Opal Rounds embellishments and….the amazeballs Seashells 3D Embossing Folder!  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Fab Friday sketch challenge.

I started with a gorgeous piece of Sand & Sea DSP that I matted on Blushing Bride cardstock for the card front.

Next – I took a piece of new Pearlescent Specialty Paper and the big, wait-until-you-see-what-this-can-do die from the Seaside Seashells Dies set and cut out the wunnermus seashells “scene”.

Using the stamps in the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, I stamped the die cut to add the images.  I used Sahara Sand for the large and small cone shells, Seaside Spray for the two clam shells and Blushing Bride for the largest shell-whose-name-I-don’t-know! 😉  I used my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Combo to color all the grasses.

And then…the magic happened! 😉

I placed the colored die cut inside the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder – it fits PERFECTLY into the image in the folder…

…and ran it thru my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  It.  Works.  Like.  A.  Charm!! 🙂

Can you see all that beautiful embossed detail?  If not – you’ll have to take my word for it for now! 😉

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I popped the die cut onto my card front.

I used a Stitched Shapes square die to cut a piece of Vellum cardstock and one of the circle Stitched Shapes dies to cut the center out.  Then I used some Glue Dots – at the bottom of the square – to adhere the square to the card front.

I cut two lengths of new Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon and adhered them in a bit of an “x” with more Glue Dots.

On a strip of the Pearlescent Specialty Paper, I stamped the Friends Are Like Seashells sentiment in Blushing Bride.  Tip: ink stays wet longer on this Pearlescent paper – so….use your Heat Tool or go get a snack while it gets good and dry!  When it was dry, I snipped some banner ends and then popped it on with Dimensionals.

I popped some of those pretty new Opal Rounds onto the card front and the Vellum (cleverly hiding a few extra Glue Dots!!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells in Blushing Bride on a Very Vanilla panel.  Over it, in stamped-off-once Sahara Sand, I added a sand dollar from the set.  Around that, I added “bubbles” in stamped-off-once Seaside Spray.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Sahara Sand card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a full-strength Sahara Sand sand dollar on the front.  I made a sticky note mask for it and then stamped the clam shells in Seaside Spray.  I pulled up the mask and added more bubbles…

…and added more of the Sand & Sea DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow.  Just…wow!  Y’all – this Sand & Sea Suite is seriously beautiful!  From the DSP with the same name…

To the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle – with that big die that FITS IN THE SEASHELLS 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER!!  Yes – I DID mean to yell – it’s that BIG!!

I hope you like – and are frantically searching for your wish list!! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Sneak Peek Thank You Card

Well – we’re home and it’s Monday!  What a weekend it was – from storm to gorgeous in just a few days.  Thankfully, the gorgeous happened FOR the wedding! 🙂  Which was also gorgeous!

My card today is my version of one we did at our virtual OnStage event – the Stamp & Share Experience!  We got all the card cuts ahead of time and were ready to stamp “together” with one of the SU! head office folks!  As we worked, I sort of modified the basic card to be more my style.  But, it’s pretty close – and is a great Sneak Peek at the new Dragonfly Gardens Suite.  Take a look-see:
