Stampin’ Up! Bring On All The Bright Christmas Presents

Okay, you guys.  I’m finally caged to what the heck DAY it is!  Sheesh – can you believe that I thought there were still TWO weeks until Christmas!?  Yesterday was like…Springing Forward – for me.  But…it was a WEEK forward.  Like an HOUR, only….SO.  MUCH.  WORSE!!  All of a sudden my mild panic became…abject horror!!  I’m not RUNNING out of time – I’m flat OUT of time.

So – I baked like crazy yesterday and did some wrapping.  Still not gonna get everything where it needs to go by THIS Christmas, but…perhaps my late-arriving goodies will help to extend the holiday cheer!

Yea.  That’s my story.  Also – at this point it is what it is, so… 😳

My card for today is likely going to be one of th last that will be all about Christmas.  I mean – there’s only like 5 more days where a Christmas card is appropriate.  LOL.

For this one, I used the wonderful pine paper from the All Is Bright DSP and the Bring On The Presents and Merry Christmas To All stamp sets to make you a…present!  Take a look-see:

Just so you know – NONE of my “real” presents will look even remotely like this when they finally ship! 😉

I was playing along with this week’s TGIF Challenge – and I really went all in on the sketch!

I started with some of my favorite paper from the All Is Bright DSP and matted it on Real Red for the card front.

Then I “wrapped” the card front with 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon – securing it all in the back with Glue Dots.

I pulled out the Pretty Pines Thinlits and cut some Shaded Spruce and Garden Green pine boughs.  I cut some Sparkle Glimmer Paper leaves, too.  With the Frosted Bouquet Framelits, I cut a few Real Red berry sprigs.

All these, I added to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the big bow from Bring On The Presents in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I colored it with my Dark and Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends.  I didn’t want a white border – so I fussy cut the bow and popped it on top of the ribbons with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, also from Bring On The Presents, is stamped in Shaded Spruce on Whsiepr White.  I added the tag border in Real Red – and fussy cut that, too.

I tucked the gift tag under the bow with some Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a big sentiment from Merry Christmas To All set in Shaded Spruce on Whisper White.  Then I added a couple of flourishes in Real Red.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Shaded Spruce card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Real Red flourishes from the Merry Christmas To All set on the front…

…and I added some more of the All Is Bright DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  One week – or two! – this is a fun card for Christmas!  I love this paper from the All Is Bright DSP so much!  And that huge bow from Bring On The Presents is really perfect, especially colored with the Stampin’ Blends!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

From very early in his time with us, I’ve enforced about three rules with the Man.

They’re really for his own safety.

One of those is…do NOT go in the stalls.  Horses in – horses out – door open – door closed…no dog in the stall.

It just makes sense.

Sometimes he…forgets?…the rule.

But – he doesn’t always own up.

Finn?  Have you been in the stall?

Me?  Oh no – that would be against your really smart rule set in place for my own safety, Mom!  Uh…why do you ask??

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas To All Is Bright

Mornin’, y’all.  It’s Monday, the Monday after we lost #41.  He’s with Barbara and his little girl, now – but…we’re worse for the loss of George H.W. Bush.  He was a great man and a great patriot, who exuded grace and civility throughout his Presidency and his entire life of service.

I’m proud to have served under you, sir.

I’ve got a quick and easy card for you today – one that you can whip out in a heartbeat!  A little paper – in this case from the All Is Bright DSP – and stamp and some ink!  The Merry Christmas To All set is perfect if you want a big, bold sentiment!  Take a look-see…

The layout was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week – although I turned it a little! 🙂

And the theme is from The Paper Players challenge!

Buckle-up, Buttercup – this’ll take about two blinks of an eye!

Ready?!

I started with a plain piece of paper from the All Is Bright DSP and matted it on Real Red for the card front.

Then I matted a smaller piece on Real Red and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Shaded Spruce on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  I added the flourish in Real Red, matted the panel on Real Red – and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished it with a Gold Metallic Pearl and the card front was done!

Told ya! 😉

On the inside, I added a second Shaded Spruce sentiment and a Real Red flourish to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Merry Christmas To All flourishes in Real Red on the front…

…and then I put some more of the All Is Bright DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This very basic layout is perfect with some All Is Bright greenery and a bold, center-stage-taking sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set!  And – you could do this same design with any of your favorite DSPs and a big, stand-out sentiment!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Today’s Finn Fan Fix has absolutely nothing to do with Finn.

Well – he DID go up to the gate to pick up the boxes.

So…it’s Finn-Fan-Fix-Adjacent! 🙂

We got a call from the Amazon Sunday delivery lady saying she had two boxes for us – so we just had her leave them inside the gate and then Wayne and the Man went and got them.

I was trying to remember what I’d ordered.  I’m a bit of a Prime-a-holic, y’all.  Not gonna lie.

So anyway – Wayne comes back in with…

Now I’m totally stumped.  What the….??

No kidding.  Three items and the packing slip.  Not another thing.  Those could have fit in a padded envelope – and not even needed a very BIG one!!  LOL!!

Well – it’s a good box for mailing Christmas I guess!! 🙂

Good morning!  OnStage 2018 is in the History books!

I’ve got a pretty Christmas card for you today using some plaid Festive Farmhouse DSP (one of my favorites!!) and the large and lovely snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits.  I borrowed some sentiments from the Merry Christmas To All bundle, too.  Take a sneak peek!

Stampin’ Up! Snowfall Merry Christmas To All

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your week has gone well and that you’re ready for the weekend.

If you were in Hurricane Michael’s path, my thoughts and prayers are with you – I hope that you were spared as much as possible.

In that vein, Stampin’ Up! alerted us yesterday to a statement issued by UPS:

**********

Because of severe conditions caused by Hurricane Michael, UPS is temporarily putting a halt on pickups and deliveries in parts of Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. To see if your area will be affected, visit the service alert page on the UPS website and enter your ZIP code into the search field.

We regret any inconvenience this situation may cause, but the safety of UPS employees comes first. If you (or anyone you know) live in an affected area, please stay safe and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Rest assured that UPS will ensure all shipments reach their final destination as quickly as conditions permit.

***********

If you’re in one of those areas, go to the UPS link above and it’ll tell you if your area is affected.

For those of you who expressed concern about our place on the south side of Atlanta, Wayne told me that we didn’t even get much rain or wind, so we’re fine.  Thank you all so much for worrying about us!

Now – on to more cheerful topics, yes?

I made a quick and easy card for you today with the fun Merry Christmas to All stamp set, the Swirls & Curls TIEF and a couple of little goodies from the Snowflake Showcase (coming on 1 Nov).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Joyous Merry Christmas To All!

Morning y’all!  It’s Sunday – and I’m probably at work by the time you read this – for our last working Sunday!  Almost there.  Just a couple more days and it’s the downhill slide to homeward bound!

My card today is a pretty little Christmas number, using some more Joyous Noel Specialty DSP, the new Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF and a very cool wooden sentiment from the Festive Farmhouse Elements.  On the inside, I added a sentiment and some holly from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set.  Take a look-see:
