Good morning and happy Tuesday! Hope that your week is going well so far! We went to get some dinner with our friends last night – sort of short notice. We got pizza – and it was a really nice evening! And we’re getting close to our retreat this weekend, so…it’s a good week!
One admin note – I will NOT be doing a Zoom The Craftroom on Thursday evening!! I WILL be doing my Facebook Live at 1pm Eastern that day – but I’m cancelling the Zoom the Craftroom. The next Zoom the Craftroom will be on Monday, 24 Oct, at 2pm Eastern! 🙂
Okay – on to the card for today (which I actually made with the creative help of the ladies on YESTERDAY’S Zoom the Craftroom!). I pulled the pretty Nature’s Prints bundle and coordinating Sun Prints DSP – both from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog – for this one! Take a look-see:
Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! We’re back in “last gasp of summer” mode here – nice for a few hours in the morning, but then…channeling a SAUNA around lunch. Yuk. AND – it’s getting dark earlier and earlier. DOUBLE YUK! But – dark early means cooler days are coming – which I am looking forward to – I’m anxious to start griping about the COLD – not the hot! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
My card today is not Christmas. Nor Fall. It’s all about gorgeous organic images of cool greenery and Calypso Coral-ery! Yes – I’m referring to the wunnermus Pretty Prints DSP. It plays a big role in the card – forming the base for the Nature’s Prints leaves – all cut with the bundled Natural Prints Dies. Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a beautiful color challenge to work with 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 colors this week I knew right away that I was going to pull out the Nature’s Prints bundle and the Sun Prints DSP. And so…I did! 🙂 Take a look-see:
And here’s the color challenge! I used all but the Night of Navy! 😎
I started using the white Pearlized Enamel Effects to “color” a Textural Element. I used a little extra “paint” at the ends where the berries are, to create a more rounded appearance. I set the element aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card!
Next up, I stamped the fern image from the Nature’s Bundle stamp set in Starry Sky ink all over a Starry Sky panel. Then I embossed the panel in the cool Fern 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Gray Granite mat for the card front.
I used the next-to-largest square Stylish Shapes die to cut a piece of plain Lovely Layers 3 3/4″ x 5″ Vellum and then adhered it to the card front with Glue Dots.
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the Nature’s Prints fern in Starry Sky and the wildflower leaves in Pacific Point. Then I cut them both out with their matching dies in the bundled Natural Prints die set.
I used the leaves dies in the Natural Prints die set to cut out three long leaves from Gray Granite cardstock, and five smaller leaves from Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper.
I double checked that the Pearlized Enamel Paint was dry on the Textural Elementand started creating the collage.
I adhered all the die cuts and the Textural Element to the card front with Liquid Glue.
With everything in place, I used a strip of Stampin’ Seal + to adhere a loop-de-doop of Gray Granite 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon.
I stamped the Nature’s Prints sentiment in Starry Sky on a piece of Basic White and cut it out with the third-from-smallest Stylish Shapes die.
I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhered some Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Nature’s Prints in Starry Sky on a piece of Basic White. Then, in stamped-off-once Pacific Point, I stamped the Nature’s Prints frond. I stamped it upside down – and have been…re-thinking that design choice since I made the card! 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️ If you make this card – stamp it upside right or downside wrong, whichever you prefer! 🙂 I added a Starry Sky 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dot next to the sentiment
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gray Granite mat and into my Thick Basic White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Pacific Point frond a few times on the front…
…and a little of the Sun Prints DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Boy – I’ve been so caught up in new goodies from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini that I’d sort of lost track of this beautiful Nature’s Printsstamp set and bundled Natural Prints dies. I love how the elements come together and they’re pretty amazing with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder, don’t you think?!?
I hope you like!

Today’s card is another W fold – the first one I did a couple week back was in horizontal/landscape orientation – this one is in vertical/portrait mode. I used the new and amazing Nature’s Prints Bundle and Pretty Prints DSP to create this one. Take a look-see:
Good Wednesday Morning. AKA HAWWWWP DAY!! Whoo-hoo!! Supposed to be around 75 – sunny. I think.
Anywho – planning to spend some time in the garden AND in the craftroom cuz…my new Stamp-N-Storage ink pad/refill/marker/BLENDS holder is coming today. Whoo-hooo!
One of the things I’ll be organizing and putting away is…my shiny new Nature’s Prints bundle – and the Sun Prints DSP that coordinates with it! Which I mention cuz…that’s what I used for today’s quick and easy card! You’ll be able to get all these goodies on 3 May when the new 2022-2024 Annual Catalog goes live! Take a look-see:
Good morning good morning! So…new catalog time is CRAZY! And…AMAZING! And..so. Much. Fun! I loved getting that big box at the gate – and it was HEAVY!! – and then digging in to see and touch and….okay, I MIGHT have given a few things a tiny pat (like on a kitten’s head!!) cuz they’re just so pretty! The paper! My goodness, y’all! I can not WAIT for y’all to see it and feel it for yourself!
I did a video yesterday to give you a first hand look – you can find the link to it down below! Enjoy!
And – cuz who can resist???…I used some of my new goodies for my card today. I pulled out what is destined to be one of the most popular new suites – the Sun Prints Suite. I used the Nature’s Prints stamp set and bundled Natural Prints Dies – plus the STUNNING Sun Prints DSP. And…the FERN 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER – yes. You heard me – fern embossing folder! Take a look-see:
