Stampin’ Up! Night Before a Merry Moose for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the color challenge – I thought…woods.  From there I decided on the Woodland Embossing Folder and…the Merry Moose stamp set!  And I combined them with a little Night Before Christmas DSP.  Take a look-see:

And – our Christmas-y color challenge – right up my alley!!

I pulled a little inspiration from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge for my layout!

I started with some Cherry Cobbler paper from the Night Before Christmas DSP and matted it on Early Espresso for the card front.

I wrapped some of the Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Diagonal Striped Ribbon around the panel, securing it with SNAIL and some Glue Dots on the back.

The embossed panel starts with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  Using the large tree in the Merry Moose stamp set, I stamped the DE-boss side of the Woodland Embossing Folder several times in Early Espresso.  Then I carefully placed the panel into the folder and ran it thru my die cutting and embossing machine.

I matted the panel on Early Espresso and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Crumb Cake, I stamped the moose outline in Early Espresso, using my Stamparatus.  Then I added the fill-in image in Crumb Cake.  I stamped the image again on a sticky note and fussy cut it to create a mask.  I placed the mask over the stamped moose and then used the Merry Moose tree to stamp several times in Crumb Cake.  When I pulled up the mask – the trees were “Behind” the moose! 😉

I cut the image with a square Stitched Shapes die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend to color a length of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine.  Then I tied a double-loop bow with Linen Thread.  As I secured it – I secured a short piece of the Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Striped Ribbon.

I adhered the bow to the card front with a Glue Dot – then tied a simple bow with my Cherry Cobbler-colored Baker’s Twine and added that on top with another Glue Dot.

For the Merry Moose sentiment, I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler on Crumb Cake and punched it with my 1 1/8″ Scalloped Circle Punch.  I adhered it with a Dimensional and a Glue Dot.

I added a Gold Star from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Merry Moose in Cherry Cobbler on a Crumb Cake panel.  I stamped some of the trees in Crumb Cake across the bottom – and added another Most Wonderful Time Gold Star.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Early Espresso mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Merry Moose trees in Crumb Cake on the front…

…and some more of the Night Before Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the Merry Moose stamp set – and it works really well with the masking technique, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Moose and Plaid Sneak Peek

Good morning! Happy mid-way-thru-the-weekend!  Hope it’s going well – it’s a freakin’ steam bath here!  Yikes.  I am SO ready for some Fall weather.  Either that or I need to build an underground bunker. 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how I made today’s card – and get a few more looks at some goodies in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog – here’s the replay!

From the instant I saw the Merry Moose stamp set – and the bundled Moose Punch (seriously?!? 🙂 ) – I knew this would be at the top end of my list for this really awesome new catalog!  And then I saw the Wrapped in Plaid DSP and…well.  It was a moose-y marriage made in heaven!  Take a look-see:

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

I started by building the background – using the new Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (coming on 4 Sept in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  I used the trees mask and a sponge with Crumb Cake ink to first create the trees.  Leaving the mask in place, I then sponged lightly over the top with new Golden Glitz Delicata Ink (also new in the 2019 Holiday catty!).  When it was dry, I matted the panel on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

Next I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler plaid paper from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP, using a square Stitched Shapes Die.  I also cut a same-size piece of Very Vanilla.  I adhered the plaid square at a diagonal onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the Very Vanilla square, I stamped the large tree from Merry Moose in Shaded Spruce – twice.  Then I used the small tree image – and stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce – to add a few background trees.  I inked the large tree with the Golden Glitz ink and stamped over the top of the images.  Then I adhered the square to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Trim across the panel.

I cut a small Rectangle Stitched Dies shape from Very Vanilla, stamped the Merry Moose sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, and adhered it to the trim with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the moose in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I used my Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to color his body and Light and Dark Gray Granite for his antlers.  I cut him out with the Moose Punch and, using Liquid Glue and some Mini Dimensionals (under the antlers), adhered him next to the sentiment.

I stamped the scarf in Shaded Spruce on Very Vanilla, fussy cut it and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I added some Shaded Spruce jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (these are coming soon, too!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I did a few more Shaded Spruce and Golden Glitz trees and some “ground/snow” in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Merry Moose trees on the front…

…and some more of that wunnermus Wrapped in Plaid on the envelope flap.

Et Voila.  Moose.  Trees.  Sentiments.  An adorable racoon.  AND a punch??  Yep – the Merry Moose bundle is going to be a heavy favorite this season, I am 100% confident!  And if you pair it with plaid?  Oh my.  I hope you like!

Did you guys know that yesterday was – apparently – National Spoil Your Dog Day?

No – I didn’t either.  Until I got an e-mail from Chewy or IHeartDogs or some such.

So…if I understand this correctly…we’re only supposed to spoil our dog on ONE DAY OUT OF THE YEAR?!?

Finn gives this stupid idea about a million paws DOWN!

Maybe a National Spoil Your Cat Day (and maybe then only once every 5 or 6 years – if you MUST have a cat).

But – not for dogs.

Dogs must be spoiled every.  Single.  Day.

Yesterday, in order to ensure that happened – Finn got me up twice on Friday night to go out.  This is unheard of in our house.  He simply never has to go out once he’s hit the sack.

THIS is normal – all night long – with nary a twitch nor a wiggle.  Probably some snoring, but that’s about it.

So I was on high alert on Saturday morning and, sure enough, appears he had a little tummy upset.

The 2 teaspoons of Pepto Bismol (YUK, mom – what the HECK!?!) was not even sort of well received.

Chicken and rice in the Mealthy Multi-Pot was the more (much more!) palatable remedy.  Dump it in – a quick 3 minutes on high and then sit until I got back in from doing the horses and…

I’ll feed this out and I’m quite sure it will settle his little tummy right down.

Also I’ll be a rock-star AND – will have fulfilled the requirement to spoil my dog for this year.  Winner winner chicken-and-rice dinner!

Phew! 😅 Don’t have to do THAT again for 364 more days! What a relief! 😉

Stampin’ Up! A 2019 Holiday Catalog Christmoose Video Sneak Peek!

Good morning – happy Saturday to y’all!

I have nothing much planned – I fear we have to go into “the room”.

You know the one.  THAT place where all things get shoved when you don’t know where to put them?  And you have yet to win the “we REALLY ought to get rid of fill-in-the-blank argument”.  Sigh…

But – if I’m forced to do THAT today – then rest assured we WILL do a video tonight!  I hope that you can join me (almost as much as I hope we will not GO THERE today!).  We’ll get together on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page at 7pm Eastern and make a fun Christmoose card using a “secret” bundle from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  Take a sneaky peek!

Hmmm.  Not all that sneaky of a peek, is it!? LOL!

Anywho – I hope you can join me!

Right here.  Tonight.  7pm Eastern!

A lesson in the Finn-ean language.

Do you want to go outside?

Are you hungry?  Do you want your lunch bone?

It’s a language of nuance and subtlety.

Not to worry.  You’ll get it! 😉
