Stampin’ Up! Just Us Girls Guest Designer Peaceful Nature’s Positive Thoughts

Good morning, peeps!  Well – today is the last week in my  “term” as a Guest Designer at the Just Us Girls Challenge! Which is why I’m in your Inbox so early!  Next Saturday we’ll be back on our normal posting schedule.  I’ve really enjoyed working with the fun folks at Just Us Girls – and am really honored that they asked me!

This week is a theme challenge – with butterflies taking a front-row-seat.  So – I pulled out the Positive Thoughts stamp set with the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies (which YOU’LL be able to get on 4 Feb!).  I used a couple of sentiments from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, too.  Take a look-see:

Here’s our Just Us Girls Photo Week challenge badge – I hope that it – and my card – will inspire you to get inky and come play along!

I borrowed the layout from the Mojo Monday challenge!

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and used the leaf image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set to stamp all over it in Crumb Cake ink.  I embossed the panel in the new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Copper Foil.

The middle layer is Vellum cardstock, cut with the frame die from the Nature’s Thoughts die set and stamped with the leaf image again in Crumb Cake.  I used Glue Dots hidden behind the stamped images to adhere it to the card front.

The next layer is more Crumb Cake cardstock.  On this one, I stamped the dahlia image from Positive Thoughts several times in Whisper White Craft Ink – then quickly sprinkled the wet ink with Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  Over the embossing, I stamped the dahlia again with more of the Whisper White Craft Ink.

When it was dry I cut it with a rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

With the larger label die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set, I cut a Copper Foil label, embossed it in the Coastal Weave folder and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and one of 1/4″ Copper Trim around the panel – adhering them on the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Blackberry Bliss ink on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and cut it out with the larger curvy label die in Stitched So Sweetly.

I popped the sentiment over the ribbons with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped three Positive Thoughts butterflies in Blackberry Bliss ink on Vellum cardstock and cut them with their Nature’s Thoughts die.  Then I colored the backs of the butterflies with my Light Pretty Peacock and Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.

I tied a bow from the 1/4″ Copper Trim and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.  Then I curled the butterfly wings and adhered them all to the card front with Glue Dots.  A pink gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished off the card front.

For the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Blackberry Bliss on a Crumb Cake panel.  Over that, in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake, I added the leaves image from Positive Thoughts.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Copper Foil mat and into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got Crumb Cake leaves and a Blackberry Bliss butterfly on the front…

…and on the envelope flap, too!

Et Voila!  I love this Positive Thoughts stamp set so much – the pretty images and sentiments – and the fact that there will soon be the Nature’s Thoughts Dies to cut them all out….is just icing on the cake!  I hope you like!

So – PSA!  I’ll be live tonight at 7pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.

We’re going to make a fun card with another special Sale-A-Bration stamp set and matching Coordinating Product Release dies.  Take a sneaky peek!

Gosh – can you even GUESS what products we’ll be playing with?!?  It’s just such a…mystery!!

Hope you’ll be able to join me!  🙂

Tonight.  Right here.  7pm Eastern!

Somedays – there’s no story behind a picture.

There’s just a dog…

Stampin’ Up! Parisian Beauty and Blossoms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – 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!

When I saw the challenge, I just sort of fell on the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP – it just made sense.  Since I hadn’t used the Parisian Beauty stamp set, with its bundled Parisian Dies – I thought this would be a great time!  And so…take a look-see:


And here’s our color challenge!

Since I already had the colors set for me, I looked for a likely layout and found one in the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge!

And the theme seemed to fit right in with the As you See It Challenge!

I started with some Pool Party paper from the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and matted it on Pool Party card stock for the card front.

For the strip of script-y DSP, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die.  But – it wasn’t long enough so…I ran it part way thru my die cutting machine…not letting the second end cut the paper.

…then I turned the whole platform around and re-positioned the die – putting the other end at the length I needed.

And ran it back thru – only going half way again.

When finished, I had the perfect length strip – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

My heart is actually one of the new Heart Doilies – turned over and then stamped several times in Pool Party with the scripty image from the Parisian Beauty stamp set.  Then I adhered that to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Note:  I am seeing that it looks blue in the pictures.  It’s not – it’s white!  🙁

My oval is a piece of Petal Pink Perennial Essence Vellum – cut with a Stitched Shapes Oval and then embossed in the new Parisian Flourish 3D embossing Folder.  I used some Glue Dots to adhere it to the card front.

I created the Eiffel Tower next.  With the detailed die in the Parisian Dies, I cut the shape 4 times.  Twice in Pool Party, once in Basic Gray cardstock and the last one from Champagne Foil.

I adhered the two Pool Party cuts together in a stack with Liquid Glue.  Then I added the Champagne die cut on top.  On the back of the stack, I stuck some Black Mini Dimensionals – then I popped the stack onto the Basic Gray die cut – offsetting it a little bit to create a shadow effect.

I adhered the tower to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I first embossed more of the Petal Pink Perennial Vellum in the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I used a rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set to cut a backer for my die cut sentiment.  Once again, it wasn’t the size I needed.  So…I cut the rectangle and then cut it AGAIN – adjusting the die to get down to the size I wanted!

I cut the sentiment – which is a die in the Parisian Dies set – three times in Pool Party and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the stack to my Vellum rectangle with Liquid Glue.  I put a few double-stacks of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the rectangle – hiding them behind the sentiment – and adhered it over the Eiffel Tower.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a small bow tied from Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon, added some Champagne Rhinestones and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second Parisian Beauty sentiment in Pool Party on a Whisper White panel.  Over top, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I added the script image and a few of the fluer-de-doo’s….then I finished with a Champagne Rhinestone.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more stamped-off-once script and fluer-de-doo’s….I also added the “Tower stamp” image a few times – with the “cancelled” lines over them – up in the top left-hand corner.

…and a little more of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is this Parisian Blossoms bundle with it’s stunning detailed Parisian Dies??

I love how this card turned out – the stacked tower looks so cool!  I hope you like!

Sometimes – I have to look twice.

It’s pretty easy to see here – in a photo – but when you walk into the room and look down in the kennel and see….

It’s truly not always easy to see which end is which.

He kinda looks like a push-me-pull-you sometimes…. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful Friendship Eclipse Thank You!

Good morning – it’s FRIDAY!!  Whoo-hoo!!  Hope the weekend is looking good for y’all!

I had another special request for a card – this one a thank you with…hopefully!…some peonies.  So – I sent some ideas and we settled on the beautiful flower in the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.  I combined that with the Thank You Die and a sentiment from the A Big Thank You stamp set.  Take a look-see:

As I was figuring what to do for this one, I got the e-mail notice for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – and it clicked for me!  Do an Eclipse card! 😉

And it seemed to work perfectly with this week’s Watercooler Challenge!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and started building a Beautiful Friendship flower garden.  First up – the peonies.  I used my Stamparatus, stamping the first one in full strength Petal Pink.  For the second one, I inked the stamp and stamped it off once.  Then I stamped the card front.  I used a Sponge Dauber to add more Petal Pink to the bottom and edges of the image and stamped it again (thank you, Stamparatus!).

I made a couple of sticky note masks (stamped the sticky note with the image and fussy cut it) and laid them over the top of the two peonies.  Then I stamped the hydrangeas in Balmy Blue.  I also added stamped-off-once Highland Heather lilacs here and there.  I made a couple of hydrangea sticky note masks and used all the masks to add stamped-off-once Pear Pizzazz leaves around the image.

The final flower is the rose – stamped in Blushing Bride.  I added some stamped-off-once So Saffron flower centers to the peonies and that was it!

With my garden finished, I cut the Thank You Die from the middle of the panel.  I VERY CAREFULLY saved all the “chads” from the die.  Don’t miss this step! 🙂

I also cut three more of the Thank You dies from Basic Black cardstock and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue.  I set the die cut back into the “hole” and then used Liquid Glue (teensy dabs!) to put all the “chads” back into their spot – adhering them to the Black panel.

I adhered the “real” die cut on top of the stacked black die cuts and then adhered the whole thing back into place on the card front.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Linen Thread double-length simple bow, added a few pink Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from A Big Thank You in Balmy Blue – and created another garden scene on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into a Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Beautiful Friendship flowers on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  A flower garden for a friend!  I love the flower images in the Beautiful Friendship stamp set, don’t you?  And the Thank You Die is a wonderful starting point for the eclipse technique!  I hope you like!

TTFN

P.S.  If you decide to CASE this card (yeah!) – don’t forget to hang on to the sticky note masks you make!  Keep them right in the stamp case and they’ll be all ready for your next carding adventure! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Art is Everything Amazing Birthday!

Here ’tis, y’all!  Say it with me.  And do it IN CAPS!!

HAPPY HAPPY HAWWWWWMMMMP DAY!!!

There – that felt good, huh?

Guess what today is?  It’s a LAST day.

  • Last Day to Earn Bonus Days Coupons – the EARNING starts tomorrow.  So…if you don’t have all the $5 coupons you want…you know what to do!
  • Last Day to SAVE big on Thirty One Goodies!
  • Last at-home-work day for Mary
  • Last day before I can order 2019 Holiday Catalogs to send to you!!
  • Oh – last day of July, too!

That’s a lot of Last Day stuff, isn’t it? 🙂

Now – this will NOT be the last day you see a card from me using the super Everything Amazing stamp set!  It’s so darned handy and versatile and…COOL!  Look what happens when you add it to Follow Your Art DSP!

This is my CASE of the Designer from this week’s Global Design Project challenge!

I started with some fun paper from the Follow Your Art DSP and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

I wrapped a length of Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big beautiful sentiment from Everything Amazing in Calypso Coral on a piece of Whisper White.  I cut it out with the largest Stitched Nested Label die.  Then I used my trimmer to cut off one point.

I added two more pieces of the sentiment in Pacific Point and some Crushed Curry curly-do’s here and there around the image.

I laid the sentiment onto the card front where I planned to set it – and stamped the balloon image from Everything Amazing in Tuxedo Black – letting the strings overlap the sentiment panel.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the balloons again – this time in Calypso Coral – on another piece of Whisper White and colored them with my Light Calypso Coral Blend, Dark So Saffron Blend and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I fussy cut the balloons and popped them over the stamped image on the card front.

I tied a small bow from the Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and used a second piece to tie it onto the ribbon already on the card front.

I added some Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the balloons and curly-do’s on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Pacific Point card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Everything Amazing balloons and confetti (I’m pretty sure that’s the technical term for the curly-do’s!) on the front…

…and some more of the Follow Your Art DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I.  LOVE.  THIS.  SET!!  Everything Amazing really IS amazing – for so many occasions!  And, of course, the cheerful and color-filled Follow Your Art DSP is so much fun!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Fall Sweetly Swirled Thank You

Good morning!  Hope your weekend is going well!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see how to make today’s card, you can check out the replay right here on YouTube!

I played with a new-to-me set called Sweetly Swirled to make a Fall-ish thank you card.  Not sure why “Fall” – maybe the three or four days with mornings cool enough to open the doors and windows for a few hours?  Not quite Fall weather, but…pretty darned nice!  Wishful thinking I guess!  I paired it up with some wood-y paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and adhered it to some Pumpkin Pie card stock for the card front.

I ran a strip of SNAIL across the middle of the panel and used it to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.  Then I wrapped some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack around twice, adhering it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the large Sweetly Swirled “wreath” in Early Espresso.  Then I cut it with an oval Stitched Shapes Die.

I stamped some leaves and berries from Sweetly Swirled in Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze around the edge of the wreath, and added the sentiment in Cajun Craze.

On a seperate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped some flowers, berries, leaves and…orange slices??…using Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie inks and daubing a couple of them with Cajun Craze using a Sponge Dauber.

Then I pulled up my big girl Paper Snips and got to fussy cutting! 😉

Once I had everything cut out to my exacting standards (LOL), I used Liquid Glue and Dimensionals to adhere them to the edge of the wreath.

I tied a Double-Loop bow from the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Sweetly Swirled in Cajun Craze in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I added another wreath – this time in stamped-off-once Early Espresso.  Then I decorated it with more flowers, leaves, berries, and fruit!

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Sweetly Swirled wreath on the front…

…and the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the sweet wreaths that can be built using this Sweetly Swirled stamp set!  SO much easier than ACTUALLY making a grapevine wreath, yes?? 🙂  And – it can be totally seasonal – just change up the colors and you’re in Spring, Summer or even Winter!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Sweetly Swirled Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  What plans do you have for the weekend?  I think we need to hit the Farmer’s Market this morning (and I think Finn-y might get to go, too!) to get more tomatoes.  I am really regretting not having any plants this year!  Wayne and I came home from Italy with a new-found love of caprese salad!  And…those half-ripe maters from the grocery store….no.  Just…no!

Tonight though, I think we should get together on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page and do a video!  We’ll meet up at 7pm Eastern and make a Sweetly Swirled little thank you card.  Take a sneaky-peek:

So – I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

So – I know I promised Part 2 of the 2019 Holiday Catalog sample parade today, but I forgot about Video Sneaky-Peek Saturday (I just made that name up)!  So…I pinkie-swear….we’ll do it on Monday, okay? 😉

Do YOU Like to Pay Taxes on Your Goodies?!?

Me, neither!

If you love holidays—and don’t love taxes—we have some great news for you! Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies over the next several weeks. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

If you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia or Wisconsin (whoo-hoo!) —click the picture below to see which products will be tax-free for each state !  HINT:  TENNESSEE – YOU’RE UP!  Shop on 26 – 28 July to save big on sales tax!

Important Note: Orders must be placed with Stampin’ Up! during the sales tax holiday period to receive these select items tax free; each period begins—and ends—at midnight (Mountain Time).

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve been thinking of fun things to do with Finn now that I’m going to have time on my hand – and NOT have to go running here and there for months at a time.

One of those things is…pet therapy!  I think Finn-y would be seriously awesome as a pet therapy dog, don’t you?  And…maybe one of those airport dogs – the ones that try to keep folks from having meltdowns.  Not the ones that find drugs or anything. 😉

Since the first step to any of these is…training – I thought we ought to start at home.

And – since we’re inundated with trees – and branches that fall to the ground – I thought to myself “Self – let’s teach the dog to pick up sticks and carry them to a pile and drop them”.

He LIKES to carry sticks.

Unfortunately – the second phase of the process is much MUCH harder.

He sort of likes to…chew them to pieces wherever he picks them up.

Well.  I suppose wood chips might be useful, too?

Baby steps! 😉
