Stampin’ Up! Pines and Large Numbers for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s a color week for the last week – and last Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! – of 2017! Can you even believe it!?  Be sure to check out all the ladies’ projects before we slide into 2018, won’t you?  

Here’s the color scheme we’re working with today:

I went pretty obvious for the week of the year we’re in.  Yup!  New Years.  I used some Large Number Framelits and a few Christmas Happiness/Pretty Pines to celebrate the arrival of 2018!  And…there’s another little sneak peek of the Celebrate You Thinlits – a free goody when Sale-A-Bration starts next week!  Take a look-see:

I started with a panel of Copper Foil and cut the four numbers from the Large Numbers Framelits – making sure to hang on to the cut out pieces.

I laid the cut panel into my Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF – and added the little cut out pieces, too – and then embossed the whole thing.  I used Fast Fuse and Liquid Glue to adhere the cut and embossed panel to a Whisper White mat.

I cut more numbers from some Thick Whisper White card stock – three more of each number, to be exact.  Then I made stacks with Liquid Glue and glued the stacked numbers back into their spots.  Then I used more Liquid Glue to add the little cut out pieces back into their spaces.

Using the Celebrate die from the Celebrate You Thinlits (available on 3 Jan), I cut the sentiment from some Silver Foil and adhered it over the numbers with little bits of Liquid Glue.

To decorate the card, I pulled out my Pretty Pines Thinlits and cut some pine boughs, a pine cone and some berries from Silver Glimmer Paper and Whisper White card stock.  For the Silver Glimmer pine cone, I adhered it to a scrap of Whisper White with Liquid Glue and fussy cut it.  

I looped a short length of Silver Mini Sequin Trim around, sticking it on with Liquid Glue, then I added the Pretty Pines die cuts over top.

I made a Billie Moan bow with some new Silver Baker’s Twine (get it on 3 Jan) and stuck it on with a Glue Dot.  And – that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used Smoky Slate ink – stamped off once – to add a Christmas Happiness pine bough in the center of a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp a sentiment from the Season of Whimsy Host stamp set (available right now – but…only for a few more days!) in Versamark.  I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Whisper White mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few stamped off once or twice Smoky Slate pine boughs from Christmas Happiness…

…and I embossed the envelope flap in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.

Et Voila!  Large Numbers Framelits and Pretty Pines in mixed metals to welcome the new year!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Number of Years Basket Bunch Birthday

Well, here we are again – it’s Friday!  Whoo-hooo!  I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve got chores and errands and…cards cards cards to make this weekend!  I have to go out of town again next week, so gotta get ahead!

Three years ago at this time, I was in Florida running a test – and one of our guys and his wife had their baby.  A little girl.  One of the first ever cards that I made for a specific purpose went to them to celebrate that birth.  And each year since, I’ve sent a little gift and a card.

This year, I used an Easter stamp set from the Occasions catalog called Basket Bunch.  I paired it with the Number of Years stamp set and its matching Large Number Framelits.  Take a look-see:

I used a sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the layout:

And the color scheme came from The Paper Players color challenge.

I started with a Whisper White panel for the card front.  Using the sentiment from the Number of Years stamp set, I stamped it at the top of the panel in Blushing Bride.  When I put the stamp on my acrylic block, I curved it more than it already is, so that it would fit nicely above the handle of my basket.

Then I used the flower images in Number of Years to create a subtle, pale background.  I inked the foliage image in Smoky Slate and stamped-it-off-once on scrap paper before stamping it on the card stock.  I stamped the image all over the panel.  Then I stamped the little flowers in stamped-off-once Blushing Bride.

The panel is matted on Copper Foil and then Blushing Bride card stock.  I used the Project Life Corner Rounder to round the two opposite corners, and SNAILd the stack together.

Now – if you’re new to my blog (welcome!), you might think I did that cuz I’m a wicked talented designer.

Well – sure.  Of course there’s that.

But – if you’ve been around for a while, you suspect I did that to cover a…boo-boo!  Yep.  You got it! 🙂

With everything all matted up, I laid a piece of Blushing Bride 3/8″ Striped Satin Ribbon across the card front, securing it with little bits of Liquid Glue.  Over that is a strip of Smoky Slate 1/8″ Stitched Ribbon.  Then it was time to make the focal point of the card!

Using the Basket Builder Framelits, I cut the little basket and handle from some Copper Foil.  And I stamped three little bunnies from the Basket Bunch stamp set in Smoky Slate on Whisper White, colored them in with my Basic Gray Watercolor Pencil and Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker and fussy cut them.

The final piece is a Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper “3”, cut with the Large Numbers Framelits.

To build the art, I adhered the handle to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I stuck a Glue Dot on the card stock and wound a few loops of Copper Metallic Thread around. Over that went the “3” and two little bunnies.  Hint:  The handle isn’t as “tall” as it looks here.  I adhered it with a gap above the basket – and covered the gap with the bunnies! 🙂  I popped the basket on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added the third bunny.

For the sentiment, I stamped two words from Number of Years in Smoky Slate and cut them out, edged them with the Blushing Bride Marker and stuck them to the basket with Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I repeated my stamped-off-once Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride flowers in the middle of a Whisper White panel.

I repeated the corner rounding on the panel and its Copper Foil and Blushing Bride mats (in for a penny, in for a pound!) and then SNAILd the whole thing into my Smoky Slate card base.  I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Number of Years flowers on the front…

…and I used a piece of Smoky Slate Carried Away DSP (free in the SAB flyer!) for the Envelope Flap.

Et Voila!  I’m pretty sure that, at 3, she’s not going to be fawning all over a handmade card.  So it’s really for her parents, right?  I think they’ll get a smile from the pretty flowers, sparkly number and cute bunnies!  Fun that the Basket Bunch – an Easter bundle – can be so versatile, huh?  Hope you like!

One pill stolen from a bucket of horse feed….$2.00

One can of “special”, veterinarian formula dog food…..$3.63

The look on the Finn-face when they handed him this bowl of charcoal-inundated “special”, veterinarian formula dog food….


Well, not really priceless.  More like $135!

Yes, he stole a horse pill this morning.  And the call to the vet resulted in:

…puking (poor little dude!).  And then the trip to the vet and the eating of the nasty charcoal food (which, apparently, wasn’t all that nasty cuz he ate every bite!).

Lots better than the tube I was afeared they’d use to “dose” him!

So – that was our Thursday. Bleh…

But he’s fully recovered – might have been harder on the mom than the puppy! 😉


P.S.  He also has a sprained toe.  Rough week for Finn-Chewie!!

Stampin’ Up! Large Numbers Guy Greetings Birthday Card

Late breaking news! I just found out the 4th-of-July card that I made with the Timeless Textures stamp set was selected as an Artist Pick at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  I want to thank the good folks at HSS for picking my card out of the really great cards that were submitted.  When you have a chance – go check them – and the other winners! – out, okay? You can click right here! If you want to see how I made this card, just click the picture! 🙂

Touches of Texture 4th of July 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers


Happy Hawwmp Day (I checked the calendar – it’s for sure Wednesday!), y’all! 🙂  Which means the week is half over – which means there’s only two more work days ‘afore I get to head for the home-drome!  Of course that also means I should be busy packing my stuff back into the boxes and totes I brought it here in.  Or, for you grammarians….the boxes and totes in which I done brung it!

I have a quick – and sorta sad! – update about Duck Duck.  It appears that, although wild geese mate for life, if domestic geese do the same, well….it’s with other geese.  Appears they don’t stick with humans for good.

Duck Duck seems to have flown…well…waddled…the coop pond.

Yes – it’s true.  Or true as of the writing of this post.  Wayne took her her dinner and….she was gone.  He spied her back next door, where we believe she hails from…with two plain ole white geese.

The kind you’d put an apron on by your front porch.  Only…like…you know….real!

Guess she got her chopped cabbage and watermelon and duck crumbles and cracked corn and showers when it was hot and….sob….just….SOB….LEEEEEEEFFFFFFTTTTTT!!!! (I don’t know how to make a crying emoticon, so pretend there’s one of those right here!).

Maybe she just misses me so terribly that…no, Mary.  No.  You know what they say…if you love something, let it waddle away.  If it loves you back, she’ll return.


Give me a minute to collect myself.


Okay.  I’m good.  I’m pulling up my big girl panties and getting on with my life.

Today’s card is kind of a fun one – I actually chuckled out loud while I was making it (before Wayne called, that is).  I played with a couple of challenges – and let me show you the first one before I show you the card.

Just Us Girls had a photo challenge.  JUGS #353 was all about golf.

JUGS #353 Sketch
So – I used some of the Large Number and Large Letter Framelits.  And some Labeler Alphabet.  And I made a Guy Greetings kinda card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sitting Here Timeless Love Anniversary

Hey Mike Mike Mike Mike MIKE!!  Do you know what day it is?

Well, of course you do cuz I started the post out with Hey Mike Mike Mike Mike MIKE!

Yes – it’s Hawmp Day!  AND it’s also just about the half way point of my sojourn here in Savannah!  And I’m ready!  Not that I’m not enjoying my time here – the people here are fun and the food is certainly spectacular…

But – I am so looking forward to the end of the 4:30 alarm!  Or…a 5:30 alarm.  Or any alarm at all!!  I do just fine when I wake up cuz it’s light outside.  The alarm, though, has become my enemy.  I’m getting downright pissy with Siri when I tell her to turn the alarm on for the next day! 😉

Waaahhhh – whine much, Mary?!?

You came for a card and that’s what I’m fixin’ to give you!  Now – this card isn’t one of my quick and easy’s.  Nope – this one took some time and it’s completely my fault.  All was going along pretty fast – even given the masking I needed to do – and then I pulled out the Venetian Crochet Trim.  And got all creative with it.  But – I’m getting ahead of myself!  Be warned, though – the steps are easy, but there’s a few of them so, this post may be kinda long…. 😉

This was a special request from a friend who needed a 63rd wedding anniversary card.  I used the Large Number Framelits, and the new Sitting Here stamp set (she saw the last card I did with it and liked it!).  Timeless Love – a current stamp set – lent me the sentiment.  And I pulled out some of the pretty Affectionately Yours DSP. Take a look-see:

Sitting Here Timeless Love 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I started by tearing the edges off a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I also cut a heart from a piece of Very Vanilla, using the largest die in the new Sweet & Sassy Framelits.  Then I tore the edges all the way around the heart.  Using a tiny little bit of SNAIL, I lightly adhered the heart to the card front panel.

Stampin’ Up! Number of Years Shutter Fold Birthday Card!

Home! Had a good flight (other than them running out of food before they got to us!) and a great last chat with Amy.  What a wonderful 5 days with her – we had a really good time.  OnStage 2016 was fun – we ate some great meals (at the hotel, surprisingly – if you ever go to SLC – try Spencer’s Steak House.  Fabulous!) – chatted and laughed and really just had fun!

And, man am I glad to be home!! 😉

Coming soon – like…this afternoon – I’ll be posting a special message with the Retiring Product List.  And then….get ready!  It’ll be time to get on the stick and get your orders in – things will go fast!  

And, before you know it, it’ll be your chance to order from the truly amazing 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  You’re so gonna love it!  Starting tomorrow I’ll be able to share some Sneak Peeks!  Hold on to yer hats!

But, for today – I have a super fun card to share with you.  It’s called a Shutter Fold – cuz the inside opens and closes like a camera shutter!  And it’s really not too hard to make, either.  I’ve posted a Tutorial here.  So, on this post, I’m going to show you how to decorate today’s card – not how to build the shutter card itself, okay?

This one is destined for my wonderful hubby’s 60th birthday which is fast approaching.  I’ve used some of the fun It’s My Party DSP and added the obligatory “60” with the Number of Years stamp set and the matching Large Number Framelits.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Love You Sew Number of Years

Hello hello!  Welcome to another week of stampin’ and makin’ here at Stamps-N-Lingers!  I’m feeling awfully perky this evening as I type up the post for Monday.  Wayne and I spent much of the day at a Shoe Repair Expo.  Yes.  That’s a thing! 😉  It was fun – and fueled our long-tamped-down desire to open a shoe repair of our own.

Add in the fact that the day was gorgeous…well, I’m just in a good mood! 🙂

So – the card I have to share is a fun Birthday Card.  I combined two great Occasions catalog stamp sets – the Love You Sew host set and the Number of Years bundle.  Take a look-see:
