Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Cookies

Good Friday!  Not “Good Friday” – that’s a few months from now!

Don’t scoff – the Christmas decor was up at Costco last weekend.  Right next to the Halloween decor.

Which…I thought was interesting on many levels!

But – any which way you look at it – Christmas is almost here – which means Easter is almost here.  See?  Made it back to “Good Friday”! 😉

Almost got lost in my own ramblings.  Sheesh.

Now – on a “normal” Friday – this post would be all about the card that I made for you on my YouTube video yesterday.  But…I didn’t MAKE a card!  So – there IS a video – but not about this card.  It’s all about how to use the Simply Scored Tool to make a box-envelope for a thicker/dimensionalized card.  It’s a pretty short video – and you can see it right here on YouTube if you want! 🙂

My card, on the other hand – is a sweet confection suited for those of us who like cookies.  And coffee.  I used the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set with its bundled Love You More dies and a little Plaid Tidings DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the fun sketch at the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of coffee/cookie hued Plaid Tidings DSP that I matted on Basic Black for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Nothing’s Better Than cookie image three times in Cinnamon Cider ink.  Then I cut them with their matching dies from the Love You More Die set.

I colored the cookies with my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Combo pack.  I added more “chocolate-ness” with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.  And added a little more detail to the cookies with the fine tip end of my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Write Marker.

I laid out the die cut cookies on a Whisper White panel and used them as a guide to stamp two more cookies directly onto the panel.  And I colored them the same as the die cut cookies.

Using Foam Adhesive Sheets – I cut out some Love You More Than die cut sentiments – in Cajun Craze and Basic Black.  Then I popped the individual sentiment words onto the panel.

I matted the panel on Basic Black and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

 

I added a Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot above the “i” in cookies – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a Nothing’s Better Than sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  I carefully inked just the “and” from one of the sentiments in the Nothing’s Better Than set in Cajun Craze and added it above the first word.  Finally, I stamped the “steam” in Cinnamon Cider!

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Cinnamon Cider cookie, coffee cup and “steam” on the front…

…and I added a little more Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How cute is this Nothing’s Better Than bundle?  Whether you love cookies, chocolate, cocktails or…ALL of them!…this is the bundle for you!

I really love the sentiment dies – all the words are separate – so you can mix them up however you like! Fun!

And Plaid Tidings DSP.  Nothing else to say here – favorite DSP ever!!

I hope you like!

And…speaking of DSP….read on.  You MIGHT find some info about a cool DSP Sale coming soon from Stampin’ Up! 😉

First off – the brand new standard-size Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine is available for you to order now!  Whoo-hoo!!!

I’ve been using this new machine for a few weeks now – one of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator – and you’ve seen it in action on some of my videos!  I love it!

The machine is sturdy and smooth – and the folding platforms are an amazing space saver for folks that don’t leave their machine out all the time OR for those of you who take your tools with you to stamp and craft with others (or – like I did before I retired! – travel on extended business trips!!)

In case you have NOT seen this machine in action – here are a couple of videos from Stampin’ Up!

             

And – we didn’t think the Magnetic Cutting Plate was going to be available this fast but…IT IS!!  Whoo-hoo!!

This thin, fully magnetic sheet, with its self-healing cutting surface, will give you magnetic power ALL OVER!  No more “hot spots”!  The Magnetic Cutting Plate (Plate 5) holds dies securely in place, even nested dies. This slim, portable sheet replaces a Cutting Plate in your sandwich, making it even easier to take with you.  Check it out!

In case you’re wondering – the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and its plates will be available later in the year!!

Here’s what’s available today:

Now – I also mentioned an…

Ordering Bonus!

Since dry embossing is one of my favorite things to do with my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine I thought I’d pass that on a bit! And…a little more!  🙂

Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Birthday Locking Gate Card with Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope your week went well – our did.  And it went fast.  Like…Warp Factor Four, Mr. Sulu-fast.  What the heck??!  I mean – seriously, just last week I was 28 – and then…I was 29 in the blink of an eye.  At this rate I’ll be 60 before this time next year!

See…THAT’S funny cuz I actually WILL be 60 this time next year – with or without Warp-Speed-Time-Passing! 😉

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! 🙂

This is a gate card – without a bellyband.  Instead, it’s got a unique “locking mechanism” that holds the card closed.

As you can see – I did two versions.  The one on the right uses pieces that were leftover from putting my June Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin together – cool, huh?

That one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I first saw this fun-fold when I got a birthday card from my friend Elisha Smith – then I took a peek at Amanda Chatsworth’s video.  And then – I modified it all a little bit to work as an A2 sized card and fit a Medium Envelope.

I started by creating a regular gate card – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded at 2 1/8″ from each short end.  I used Basic Black for the lemons card and Misty Moonlight for the Boho Indigo card.

I adhered Artistry Blooms DSP or Boho Indigo DSP to their mats – Daffodil Delight or Very Vanilla – with Liquid Glue and then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the “gates”.

The locking mechanism – which also functions as the card front – is created with four pieces of the mat-colored card stock – all the same size (2 5/8″ x 4 3/8″).  On two of the panels – I scored and folded them at 1 5/16″ on the short side.

I used Liquid Glue to “sandwich” the two folded panels between the other two panel to create an “X”.  Best way is to check the video – fast forward to about the 13 minute mark! 🙂

Once the “mechanism” was complete – it was just a matter of decorating!

The lemon card uses a black/dotted sticker and some die cuts from the Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit  I tied a little bow from the black/white twine in the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  The sentiment on that one is from the Fancy Phrases set – stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White.  It’s adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some of the adhesive-backed sequins from the kit as well!

On the Boho Indigo card, I adhered another piece of the Boho Indigo DSP to the mat.  Then I stamped the sentiment – also from the medley – on one of the pretty vanilla/gold die cut tags (from the medley – there is a LOT in this medley, y’all!).  I looped a piece of Night of Navy 1/2″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon thru the top and tied it with a length of gold twine from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack.

I used some of the pretty leaves die cuts from the medley, adhering them to the card front with Liquid Glue – then popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some foil flowers AND some of the sweet little Paper Flowers with Liquid Glue.  Finally – I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots cuz it seemed like the right thing to do! 🙂

On the inside – I added a sentiment from Fancy Phrases in Rich Razzleberry to a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another leaf and a lemon with Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.  Then I adhered it into the Lemon card.

For the inside of the Boho Indigo card, I just stamped a Very Vanilla panel with the leaves image from the medley stamp set in Garden Green – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  I matted it on Very Vanilla.

For the Whisper White Medium Envelope for my Lemon card got a sweet little flower from Fancy Phrases in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Watercolor Pencils.  I added Artistry Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.

On the front of the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added more leaves from Boho Indigo in Garden Green – and then added the DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a pretty easy fold – the mechanism is the only “hard” part – and it’s not very hard, either, once you see how it’s done!  If you’ve got the June Box of Sunshine kit – I hope this will give you some ideas about more fun projects to make with those extra pieces.  And – you NEED to get the Boho Indigo Product Medley if you don’t have it already.  It is simply amazing!!

I hope you like! 😉

There’s less than a week left in the month of June, y’all – which means less than a week to take advantage of the Pick a Free Bundle Joining Special and the Catalog Kickoff Ordering Celebration to get those extra Stampin’ Rewards!  Don’t miss out!

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

Finn Fan Fix


The other day, I couldn’t find Finn.

Which was weird, cuz I knew he’d come in with me.

I’d taken his collar off.

I remembered it clearly.

But…he was disappeared.

I looked all over – even started to wonder about alien abductions.  Wormholes opening in the living room.

I gave Katy the side-eye…what did you do to your brother?

And then – I found him.

To be clear – I walked by him twice looking for him (it’s actually dark in there – this is a flash shot).  That’s a tiny little hallway to our third bedroom.  From the kitchen looking towards the back of the house – he was completely invisible.

He truly couldn’t have shoe-horned himself any deeper into that tiny little cranny!

Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Birthday 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 cool sketch 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 our sketch, I right away thought of the new Posted for You bundle with the stamp set and coordinating Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  So…that’s what I used – and I paired it with some beautiful Artistry Blooms DSP.  Take a look-see:

And – our sketch!

I’m also playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Basic Black card stock that I ran thru my die cutting/embossing machine twice in the new Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.  I ran it thru once and then flipped the card stock around to emboss the other side.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the front of my Basic Black card base.

I cut a piece of Artistry Blooms DSP and embossed it in the second folder from the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders – the one with the butterflies…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed panel onto a Daffodil Delight mat and then onto the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp two of the images in the Posted For You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  When the ink was dry, I cut each of the images with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.

Using my Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils, I colored the images.

Then I popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals

I stamped the Posted For You sentiment in Calypso Coral on Whisper White and cut it with the small Stitched Rectangle Die.

Using Glue Dots – I adhered a short length of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon – then I adhered the sentiment over top with Liquid Glue.

A few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Posted For You sentiment in Calypso Coral on Whisper White.  Over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green, I added the post-mark image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into the card base, and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the post-mark image in Granny Apple Green on the front…

…and more of the Artistry Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a sweet and simple stamp set – the images and sentiments are lovely.  And – I really love the bundled Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch (yes – I know – I love ALL punches – but THIS one is sort of perfect!!).

Et Voila!  I hope you like. 🙂

And – this is one of THIRTY-FOUR bundles you can choose from when you join the team before the end of June during the Pick a FREE Bundle Joining Special!  Just throwing that out there!  😉
