Stampin’ Up! A Look Back and Annual Catalog Shares Coming Soon!

Good morning! I can’t even sort of tell you how happy I am to be laying in bed when this post goes live today! It was a close call – late Thursday, it looked like we were going to have to work today and tomorrow! It was looking pretty bleak there for a bit, y’all – I was feeling pretty bummed by the whole thing. Then today, we got a reprieve! Whoo-hoo! A real-live weekend! 🙂

I’ve shared a couple of cards in the last couple of days that used two stamp sets that I just love. I’ve made several cards with them since they came out in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog and the 2016 Occasions Catalog. I’m referring to the beuaitufl Sweetbriar Rose wooden stamp and the Love You Sew Host stamp set. So – I wanted to lead you on a little stroll down memory lane. Take a look-see at some of my favorite past cards with these two stamps – you can click on the pictures and go right to that post to get a reminder of how I made each one! Enjoy. 🙂

First up – the gorgeous Sweetbriar Rose from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog…

Stampin’ Up! Love You Sew Thanks Kindly

Well, as Mr. George Jones so aptly stated…

It’s finally Friday
I got my motor running for a wild weekend

It’s finally Friday

Forget the workin’ blues
And let the good times roll…

Which in my case means I’m fixin’ to roll up my sleeves and get my Big Shot running for a crafty weekend!  Oh – and do laundry! 🙂  What are your plans?  Something fun, I hope!

I’ve got a quick little card to share with you today, using a few things that are retiring at the end of the month.  The Love You Sew host stamp set – which is really one of the cutest stamp sets I’ve seen – and the Greetings Thinlits – which produce three great sentiments in a really nice size and font.  I added in a little bit of One Big Meaning (not retiring) and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

I designed this card based on the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches – #235: Continue reading

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:

Stampin’ Up! Love You, Sew Let’s Paint the Town!

Good Friday, to you all!  Today, I have a cautionary tale to share with you.  It’s a story about a girl.  Okay – a semi-old woman.  A story about a semi-old woman, with an age-old problem.  I call it….The Day Mary Had Get-The-Card-Done-itis!

A little background info is in order.  In the world of aviation, those who fly airplanes (AKA pilots), if they do so long enough, will – one day or another – encounter a situation that is 1) beyond their limits as pilots to deal with, 2) exceeds the capabilities of their aircraft or 3) is just too dangerous to go thru/over/around.  Now most of the time (I’d even say 99.9% of the time!), the prudent pilot will return from whence they came or land immediately.  Choosing to become one of the “old pilots” (perhaps you’ve heard the saying….there are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots?).

But sometimes, and it happens to all of us….we make a bad decision.  The kid’s birthday party is tonight.  It’s my anniversary and the wife/husband is going to be sooooo mad if I don’t get there.  We’re leaving on vacation tomorrow and I have to pack the car.  We decide that we “must” get home, no matter what.


If we’re lucky – or the Big Guy is flying right seat – we make it thru in spite of ourselves.  If not…well….you know.

Now – what I experienced today had zero, zilch, nada by way of potentially fatal outcomes.  Which is good.  Cuz I was seriously afflicted with the “-itis”.  The Must-Get-the-Card-Done-itis “-itis”.  Pile on to that the fact that I’m tired and…well.

And, just to be completely clear – I didn’t need this card to be done today.  I already have two cards ready to go in the line-up, so today (Friday) was covered.  Just sayin’.

So in this post, I’m going to share some tips, and some “off-ramps” – so perhaps you’ll recognize when you’ve been afflicted with the “-itis” and will turn back and land.

I’d had an idea in my head for a bit about a card using the fun paintbrush stamp in the Love You Sew Hostess Set from the Annual Catalog.  So when I saw the CAS(E) This Sketch #158, I knew that it was time to implement my plan!

CTS 158 Sketch

I woke up a little later than my norm – the late nights are starting to tell on me!  Talked with Wayne on the phone for a bit, watched a little tv to get fully awake.  Thought I’d leave a little early and make a quick run to Target for some groceries and stuff.  You know – domestic Goddess stuff! Then I thought – hey, I’ve got an hour, I’ll just knock out a card. 🙂  Here’s where the ensuing twisty road got me.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Love You Sew Bids You Thanks a Hole Punch!

I think I achieved a personal record today!  I thought up, built, finished and photographed a card (with envelope!) in just an hour!  It usually takes me a lot longer than that, so I’m pretty happy with myself.  And – that means that you could whip this card out in a heartbeat – and it’s a Single Stamp Set card, too!

Now, I’m sure you’ve seen this layout floating around – it’s pretty popular right now, it seems – and I think it stems from a sketch challenge over at Mojo Monday a couple weeks back!

So the idea of a tag-on-a-card has been in my head for a bit.  And the Love You Sew stamp set sentiment “Thanks a Hole Punch”…well, there was a tag made with it in the Occasions catalog, so that’s been in the back of my mind for a while as well.  I actually bought the 1/8″ and 1/16” Circle Punches when they were on the Weekly Deal, just so I could make a card with them and this sentiment.  So, I finally did it.  And set a record time!  Take a look-see:
