Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  Having a good weekend??  I hope so.  We did some mowing yesterday – I rode the small zero-turn mower and Wayne worked the skid steer mower.  Everything looks so pretty when it’s all mowed and fresh looking.  And it smells so good!

We’re headed to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol II today – I’ve heard great things about it already!  I’m even going to splurge and have popcorn! 🙂

So – tonight, on my Facebook Live video, we’re going to do two things.  First I’m going to spend a few minutes talking about the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and showing you how to use it.  Had a request, so that’s what we’re going to do!  Then, I’ll walk you thru a very pretty, springy Mother’s Day card using my favorite new Suite – the Delightful Daisy Suite!  Here’s a teaser…

Yep – you see a little peek of an Eastern Medallion!  Fun, huh?

You’ll see that I played with two challenges on this one.  The first inspired the layout and my choice of DSP.  That one’s the Sugar Pea Designs Mix It Up Challenge.

And the Mother’s Day theme is from the Just Us Girls Word Week challenge.

So – hope you can join me tonight – right here – at 8pm Eastern!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Did you guys watch the Derby yesterday?

I’ve vowed to boycott it, but every year we end up watching.

I’m married to a former jockey, so…interest is high.

This is how we watch the Derby here.  He’s usually exhorting one or the other jocks to push, “quit whoopin’ on him and ride”, go around, better get movin’ or some other sage advice.

He also can usually pick the winner before they’re half way down the back stretch.

It’s actually a pretty fun way to watch the race!  

Finn cared not one whit.

He was more interested in me stuffing his treat ball with freeze dried liver chunks.

Seriously – I thought he was going to fall over he was tilting his head so far!!  I think he was counting how many I was stuffing in there.

He’s kind of a goofus.

Stampin’ Up! Succulents for Mother’s Day for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

15822762_10211923272945503_223384966683691578_n

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  If you’ve been following along, you’ll know this is a color challenge week – I hope you’ll take a few minutes to browse all the projects brought to you by the talented ladies in our hop group! 🙂

Here’s our color scheme – definitely one that’s in my wheelhouse!

15590489_10211887776538115_4326421003536483901_n
I used the Succulent Garden Suite of goodies to make my card – the Succulent Garden DSP, Oh So Succulent stamp set and the Succulents Framelits.  I know it’s kind of an obvious choice with these colors – maybe too obvious – but….it’s obvious for a reason, okay?? 🙂  Take a look-see:

succulent-garden-mothers-da-4-stamps-n-lingers
I used the Mojo Monday sketch challenge to help with my card layout.

mm-483
To begin, I matted three different designs from the Succulent Garden DSP on Old Olive card stock, then I SNAILd the smaller panels to the card front.

Then I made a sentiment panel – stamping the Oh So Succulent sentiment in Old Olive on Whisper White.  The sentiment image was too long for what I was doing, so I inked the first part only, stamped it, cleaned the stamp, inked the second half – and stamped it under the first image.

succulent-garden-mothers-day-2-stamps-n-lingers
I matted it on Old Olive and SNAILd it in place.

Using a piece of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon, I ran a length across the card, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  I used a second piece and pulled all the strands out, wrapped them around the ribbon on the card, and tied a tight knot.

Next, I added the Lace Doily with the Whisper White Side up.

All that remained was to build my succulent flower!  I cut two of each of the three sizes of flowers – one each in Old Olive and Mint Macaron.  Then I used the little “end” stamps in the Oh So Succulent stamp set and stamped the little tips in Whisper White Craft Ink.  I used my Bone Folder to lightly curl all the tips of the flowers and then stacked them up with Liquid Glue.

succulent-garden-mothers-day-1-stamps-n-lingers
The center is a few Mint Macaron flowers – the ones that look a little like daisies – adhered with Liquid Glue.

succulent-garden-mothers-day-8-stamps-n-lingers
Wait a hot second!!  What’s that in the middle?

That, my friends, is a little flower cut with the new (available-to-customers on 21 Feb) Sale-A-Bration Glimmer Paper!  That paper will come in Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay and Sweet Sugarplum!

second-sab-2-stamps-n-lingers
I cut that Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper flower and added it in with a little more Liquid Glue, adhered the flower to the card front with Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Oh So Succulent sentiment in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel.  In the bottom corner, I added a couple of succulent flowers.  I stamped the middle flower first, using Old Olive for the outline and Mint Macaron for the fill image.  Then I stuck a sticky note mask (that I’d remembered to save from the last time I used this set!), and added two smaller flowers.  Those are stamped in Tip Top Taupe for the outline and stamped-off-once Tip Top Taupe for the fill.

succulent-garden-mothers-day-5-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Tip Top Taupe card base, SNAILd the card front on, and the card was done!

I added the same three Oh So Succulent flowers to the front of my Whisper White Envelope…

succulent-garden-mothers-day-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and gave the envelope flap a little more of the Succulent Garden DSP.

succulent-garden-mothers-day-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  An organic and earthy card, made with one of my favorite suites in the Occasions catalog – the Succulent Garden!  Hope you like!
