Stampin’ Up! No Special Reason Needed!

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Monday – but…no work today!  Whoo-hoo!

Before I get going – I need to fix a mistake I made yesterday.  On the sympathy card, the inside sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases – I erroneously told you it was from Thoughts & Prayers.  I’ve updated the post accordingly, but wanted to let you know! 🙂

I’m changing Finn’s name.  Or…I’ve giving him a “formal” registered name.  It’s “Finn Don’t…Good Dog”

Finn don’t get the cat food.  Good Dog

Finn don’t bother the cat.  Good Dog

Finn don’t eat horse poop.  Good Dog

Finn don’t bite me.  Good Dog

Finn don’t….Finn don’t…Finn don’t.  Good dog! 😉

He tries to get the “good dog” piece to come first – or even only! – but…it’s hard.  Really really hard!

My card for today is a No Special Reason card.  One that could go to someone just because it’s…Monday!  It uses the Special Reason bundle – which is really cool.

I love how the bundled Stylish Stems Framelits work on this one – you can cut detailed “negative” spaces – and you can also cut those negative spaces out using a second die.  I’ve done that in this card, so you’ll get to see that.  I combined the set with some Real Red and White paper from the Sending Love DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Textures Hello Love!

Good Monday to y’all!  It’s already February – can you believe that?!  Holy Smokes.

Ready for the week?  I am – cuz it means I’m getting closer to going home!  And closer to another fun Saturday of stamping with friends!

We three ladies had a great time yesterday – we made the Greatest Greetings Clean and Simple Butterfly card (click here to see it if you didn’t!) and they really liked it.  We even had an “ah-ha!” moment.  We’d come to the part of the program where they were to paint their butterfly die cut with Clear Wink of Stella – just to add a little pizzazz.  Well, as you’ve likely become aware, I’m pretty addicted to the stuff.  So my Clear Wink was a little on the dry side.  Carole asked if she could use the Gold – to which I, or course, said yes.  And she did.  And it was awesome!!  She’d used golds and blacks in her Washi background – and the Gold Wink just made the butterfly pop! From adversity came brilliance! 🙂

Anywho – they had so much fun that they’re going to come back and reprise the event on Saturday.  Not Sunday.  Cuz, well….Super Bowl?  Even I want to watch that one!

So, for today, I have a fun quick card to share that would be great for Valentine’s Day.  I used the wondrous new stamp set called Timeless Textures (Occasions catalog) and a couple of little stamps from Welcome Words and Beautiful Ride (both also in Occasions).  And I added a die cut from the Hello You Thinlits (Annual Catalog).  Take a look-see:
