Stampin’ Up! Merry Patterns ‘Tis the Season

Mornin’, y’all! It’s Monday again! No telling what we’re in for today as far as weather goes. Just know that, if the power goes out for any length of time…we’ll be using the generator to keep food cold. So… that might put tomorrow’s blog post in question. You’ll know tomorrow!

If you were able to join me last night on my FB Live video – I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – then here’s a link to the video on YouTube, in case you want to watch! 🙂  This one uses the really fun Merry Patterns stamp set – which is available exclusively to folks who host a workshop or place an individual order of $300 or more between now and the end of October!  

I added some Christmas Around the World plaid DSP and this is what resulted.  Take a look-see:  

The layout was inspired by this week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

 

I started by Fast Fusing a piece of the Christmas Around the World DSP to a Real Red mat for the card front.

I made the sentiment portion from a piece of Whisper White – also matted on Real Red card stock. Then I stamped the outline of the sentiment from Merry Patterns in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Using Real Red ink, I added the pretty fill-in for the sentiment.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel to the card front.

I cut a Stitched Shapes circle from Whisper White card stock and matted it on a Real Red scallop circle.  Then I stamped the outline of the candle image in Tuxedo Black.

There are two candle fill-in images in the stamp set.  I stamped one in Garden Green and the other in Real Red.  Then I added the little flames in Daffodil Delight.

Because it was there – and I like pines – I added the little pine bough in Garden Green under the candles – then I popped the circle on over the sentiment panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off, I tied a small bow from Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I added three Black Rhinestone Jewels to the sentiment flourish.

On the inside, I added a second Merry Patterns sentiment in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added the candles again – same colors, only this time, I stamped each image off twice before stamping the panel.  That way it was all light enough to not overpower the sentiment.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Merry Patterns candles – in full strength ink cross the front…

…and some more Christmas Around the World DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This stamp set is so much fun – with all the possibilities of the multi-step stamped images.  I’d love to help you get it for yourself to help make wonderful Christmas cards this year and…well…for many seasons to come! 🙂  There are more details down below!

Finn-Fan Fix  

So – as I write this on Saturday evening, we’ve gotten ourselves ready for the arrival of Irma tomorrow.

As ready as we can get for a Tropical Storm, I suppose.

Food – check.

Water – check.

Generator close to house – check.

Horses set – check.

Fuel in all the vehicles and extra for the Genny – check!

Finn helped.  Cuz…that’s what he does.  Here he’s monitoring his dad filling gas cans.

Reporting in – all’s well, Mom.  Dad is filling every tank and can.  As you requested.

Later – after we got home and he had a well-deserved nap….he got himself ready to go back out and do man-work.

First step – get the dog.

…and once you have him, put him in his spot on the ottoman and await further instructions.

I know.  I know.

He’s a goofus. 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix  

We had company last night – a friend of mine and his family who drove up to escape Irma.  They came to dinner and we all got to meet his wife and two lovely daughters.

Finn. Was.  In.  Heaven.  Check it.

 

Pretty sure the picture tells the whole story!

After dinner and this little love-fest, the girls asked if they could see my cards.  Duh – of course I said yes.

When I asked if they wanted to make a card…duh – of course they said yes!

So, while Finny stayed out with the adults, the young ladies and I went in and they each made my Spooky Cat silhouette card!

And a good time was had by all.

Stampin’ Up! Labels and Pumpkins to Love

Well – we made it to Friday!  And – it’s the Friday before a 3-day weekend!

And – it’s THE Friday!!  The one where the new 2017 Holiday Catalog is Live, Baby, Live!!

If I did my job right, I’ve been up for a bit by the time you read this – and will have ordered all the Painted Harvest Bundles and got them headed out!  And – ordered a bunch of ribbon and paper and embellishments for the Holiday Catalog shares!!  Whoo-hooo! 🙂

One of the goodies in those shares is in the card I have to share with you today!  I pulled some Spooky Night DSP and added a little Labels to Love and a few pumpkins from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlit dies.  I even threw in a couple of goodies from Spooky Cat.  Take a look-see:

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

The layout for this one is from the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 17.57.35

I started with two rectangular panels of Spooky Night DSP and matted them both on Basic Black card stock.  

I cut a Whisper White circle using the largest Stitched Shapes Framelit dies and then ran it thru the Big Shot in my Woodlands TIEF.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed circle to the card front and then added the smaller matted DSP panel over the top.

Next up, I cut the large pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits in Pumpkin Pie card stock, then I adhered it to a piece of Crushed Curry.  I snipped the excess Crushed Curry.  I also cut the small, star-strewn pumpkin in Whisper White.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I used a few Glue Dots to wind some Black and Gold Metallic Threads in several large loops and then adhered the pumpkins over top.  I fussy cut a witch’s hat from a piece of Spooky Night DSP and plopped it on the large pumpkin with some Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Labels to Love, is stamped in Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie on Whisper White.  I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp directly.  Then I punched it out with the new Everyday Label punch.  I punched a second label in Basic Black and adhered it – slightly offset – onto the sentiment label.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

I popped the sentiment over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish off the card front, I wrapped a length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine twice around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I added a little double-bow with a Glue Dot and a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel!

For the inside, I ran just the side of a Whisper White panel thru the Woodland TIEF.  Then I fussy cut a few more Spooky Night DSP witches’ hats and adhered them over the embossed trees with Liquid Glue.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Crushed Curry card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I stamped a witch’s hat from the Spooky Cat stamp set in Basic Black Tuxedo Ink and colored in the buckle with my Pumpkin Pie Marker…

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

…and I added a little more Spooky Night DSP to the envelope flap.

Labels and Pumpkins to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

Et Voila!  I think all the different pieces and parts came together to make a fun and kind of whimsical Halloween card!  Hope you like…and are busily getting your Holiday Catalog orders in!!  Take a look-see at the new Host Promotion – and the Merry Patterns stamp set that you could earn for free!!  Read on!

Finn-Fan Fix  

Okay – here’s an ugly truth about dogs.  Who live with indoor cats.

Dog love cat….uhm…tootsie rolls.  Poopa Roca.  Get the drift?

Yes – even Finn.  He’s an awful good boy, but…dog!

Usually we can head him off but…the other day….yea.

So – due to the incredible stinckosity of his breath, and a general urge to throw up a little when he came and panted in our faces – we decided to let him spend a little time outside.  Maybe he’d chew a pinecone.  Or put some pond scum between the cheek and the gum.  Even eat some marinated horse poops.

Anything.  Anything would have been better than what was panting out of his cute little mouth.

Mom?  I swished my mouth out real good with pond water, mom….

Pitiful, isn’t he?
