Stampin’ Up! Gone Fishing Good Things Congrats for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is “For The Men/Boys”!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

When I first saw the Let’s Go Fishing Suite – I put it on my get-it-first list.  We ALWAYS need goodies for those hard-to-make masculine cards – and this is the perfect set!  Even for non-fisher-people!  I used the Gone Fishing bundle plus several different designs in the Let’s Go Fishing DSP for today’s card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Day on the Farm Sneak Peek Masculine Card with Video Tutorial

Happy half-way-thru-the-weekend, y’all!  Hope you’re getting things done!  We ran errands yesterday – grabbing up some last minute ingredients for baked goodies – and we went to the Grand Opening of the Tractor Supply!  Last weekend was the “soft” open.  Yesterday was the real thing.  Finn got a TSC hat and  few more $5 off coupons for a bath.  He’s NOT sure that THAT is a real good gift but…gifts is gifts, right?!?…and they ALSO came with more cookies and pets and a selfie with the district rep!  So – he’s good with that…..

So my card today is a SUUUPER simple one – it’s one of my favorite layouts – I’m a real fan of angled front panels.  For this one – I used the FREE-during-Sale-A-Bration Day at the Farm DSP and the coordinating On the Farm bundle from the Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Leaf Fall in Neutrals

Good Monday morning, y’all!  It’s Monday again and I’m at T-2 days until Amy arrives!  Whoo-hoo!  And T-3 before we head to the land of beignets!  And coffee made with nuts.  Hmmm.  One is a donut – good.  The other is coffee.  From nuts.  Chicory, to be more specific.  I am trying to withhold judgment.  But….coffee.  From…nuts.  🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️  I hope that in a few days I’ll be shaking my head in amusement at myself and buying bags to bring home in the People Mover.  One of the many advantages of driving vs flying!

I’ve got a quick and easy – and suitable for ANYONE! – card for you today.  It uses one of my fave bundles from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini – the Brightest Beauty set with the bundled Golden Beauty Dies.  And…the amazingly wunnermus Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder.  All in earthy neutrals.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments, Rugged Icons & Campology with…Candy Canes?…and a Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Sunday from soggy Georgia!  We’re for sure in the Monsoon season here in the south.  Like…torrential rains – and then SAUNA! Yikes!  We took all the paper shares to the post office this morning in a total downpour – but…they’re in the mail!  And – WE were wet but THEY were NOT!  Whoo-hoo!!

Speaking of – if you’re experiencing regret or FOMO that you didn’t buy a share – let me know!  I cut a few extra Single Shares while I was at it if you’d like one.  Drop me a line at!

Now, my card today doesn’t use any DSP from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini.  Instead – it gets all its fun from…the Candy Canes dies from the mini and the totally-a-flyover stand-alone die set called Rugged Icons from the Annual Catalog!  The wonderful workhorse Charming Sentiments bundle provides the sentiment and – on the inside – go camping in the woods with the Campology set.  Take a look-see:

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! 🙂

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!
