Stampin’ Up! Your Biggest Fan Slimline Congrats Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Easter to you all! We’re headed to our friends’ this afternoon – so I’ll be in the kitchen this morning.  The Prime Rib is out and coming to room temp in preparation for it’s sojourn in my hot oven.  The eggs are deviled, the potatoes ready to hit the pressure cooker.  And the lemon sheet cake is…in work!  Yum!

As I started my video last night, it occured to me that I should have made an Easter card for you today.  But… I totally didn’t! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Instead, I made a Congratulations card (very suitable for the men in your life – but certainly not LIMITED to them!) using the fun Your Biggest Fan bundle and coordinating Hey Sports Fan DSP.  And – it’s a slimline card, too, which means that I used the cool Slimline Envelopes (which ARE going to be in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog – whoo-hoo!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Enjoy the Moment in Good Taste Birthday Card

Good morning and….might I be the first to wish you a most Happy Happy HAWWWWMP DAY!!! 🙂  Start the slide into the weekend, y’all!

Yesterday, my friend Jan came over to make a sympathy card for a friend – and, I liked the design we ended up with so much that I used it to make my card for you today.  I used the Enjoy the Moment stamp set – and, unlike Jan’s card, that was all I needed for images AND sentiments.  Like hers, though, I also used In Good Taste DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Many Messages and Lots of Heart Card

Good morning, y’all!  Are you hunkering down under the weight of snow and ice and bitter cold??  If so, I hope you’ve got power and water and heat.  And chocolate – chocolate is a pretty awesome winter-storm-survival food.

Yesterday, while a few of us were chatting and crafting on my Monday Zoom the Craftroom, I put together a pretty non-Mary kind of card.  In that…it’s not got a ton of layers.  And not a bow in sight!  But…I like how it turned out – and I think it would be a great card for a man!  It used a sentiment from my handy Many Messages bundle and a few Lots of Heart bundle hearts.  Take a look-see:

The layout and elements were inspired by the FUSION challenge this week.  The sketch side and, to some extent, the photo side! 🙂

I started with some light wood paper from the In Good Taste DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I took a second piece of the In Good Taste and made a banner with it using my Banner Triple Punch.

Using two of the heart dies in the Many Hearts die set (bundled with Lots of Heart), I cut a Mossy Meadow and a Gray Granite heart.  This pattern is one of the new 2021-2022 Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack – and you can get it for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! before the end of Sale-A-Bration on 28 Feb.  And it’ll bring 160 of its friends (translation: you’ll get 200 SHEETS of new-design DSP!!).

I adhered the two hearts to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I used the Many Messages stamp to stamp all those wonderful sentiments in Bumble Bee on Basic White and then cut them with the single big die in the bundled Messages Die.  Full disclosure:  I had this sentiment – and a bunch of others! – in my little tackle box from stamping and cutting them for a previous card!

I popped my sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dot, and the card front was done.

Yep – done.  Set.  The.  Card.  Front.  Down!

On the inside, I inked the plaid heart from Lots of Heart in Mossy Meadow and stamped it in the corner of a Basic White panel.  I added a sentiment from Lots of Heart in Bumble Bee.  And another Bumble Bee enamel dot, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Bumble Bee card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the plaid Lots of Heart heart on the front in Mossy Meadow…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Simple.  Hardly any layers (easy to mail – you’re welcome!).  Not my normal card style by any stretch.  But…I really like how it turned out!  The two sets – Lots of Heart and Many Messages go together perfectly, don’t you think??

And don’t forget – there’s only 12 days left in Sale-A-Bration!  Which means…in THIRTEEN days….no more free 200 sheets of new DSP (that’s a $59 value – on top of the awesome Starter Kit goodness!) for joining the team!  Be sure to pull the trigger and get in on the great deal before it’s gone.  I’d love to have you on my team! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Press On In Good Taste!

Good morning and welcome back to the week!  Did y’all have a good weekend?  We enjoyed ours – no more riding for us due to the wet and sloggy mud from Saturday’s rain.  Hoping to get back out there a couple times this week!

I made a quick and easy card for you today.  Now – there IS a little fussy cutting but it’s so worth it.  And not all that hard.  I used the fun Press On stamp set – for all us coffee lovers! – and TWO designer papers (BOTH of which are on SALE right now:  The In Good Taste DSP and Plaid Tidings DSP.  Two of my faves!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Loyal Leaves for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

Like most hops, we have a theme each month – and this month’s is “Shake Things Up”!   Which means – try something new!

So…I pulled out my NEW uninked Loyal Leaves stamp set and used a technique I haven’t used in a long time – using a new color for the process – to create a masculine card!  Actually – I think it could be for anyone, really!

Cryptic enough?  Well….take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates In Good Taste Birthday!

Good morning and happy Memorial Day!  Hope you’ll have a great day with family and socially-distanced friends – with good food and fun.  And a moment to remember the sacrifice behind the holiday!

Do you guys realize that we’re only NINE days away from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog going LIVE?!?  Happy Dance Happy Dance!!  Of course, that also means that we’re only EIGHT days from the end of the Retiring goodies – so….be sure to pick up your favorites before they’re gone for good!

Now – my card for today uses the Many Mates stamp set.  Again.  Sorry for the quick repeat, but…this card came to my brain and it needed this sentiment.  This time, I paired it with some Misty Moonlight paper from the In Good Taste DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.


This one is super easy – letting the wonderful In Good Taste do all the work.

I started with a pretty Misty Moonlight and Gray Granite paper from the In Good Taste DSP that I matted on Bumble Bee for the card front.

The middle panel is a second pattern in the DSP pack – also matted on Bumble Bee.

I ran a length of new Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 1/4″ Ribbon thru a slide from the Antiqued Corners & Slides (new in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog) then I wrapped it around the small panel and secured it in the back with Glue Dots.

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

On a piece of Gray Granite, in Night of Navy, I stamped the Many Mates sentiment using my Stamparatus.  Then I punched it out with the Tailored Tag Punch.

I added faux stitches with my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker, then I popped the tag on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered one Bumble Bee dot from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and…the card front was done!

On the inside, on a Gray Granite panel, I stamped a second Many Mates sentiment in Night of Navy.  Across the bottom is a Bumble Bee-matted strip of the In Good Taste DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and then into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the “Celebrate” sentiment from Many Mates stamped across the front in Night of Navy…

…and more of the pretty In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  Many Mates is so stinkin’ useful – with sentiments ranging from this birthday wish to Sympathy, Thanks, retirement and congratulations!!

Look how different this card looks from the last one I made with this set.

Th difference?  The In Good Taste DSP!

Finn Fan Fix

Somedays, when the weather is fine, Finny and I just sit on the porch at the barn.

Enjoying the birds.  And the flowers.

The quiet of a garden is good for the soul.

Be it human or dog. 🙂

Finn sleeps.  I read.

Not at all a bad way to spend a few minutes on a lovely Georgia spring morning! 🙂
