Stampin’ Up! Just Hatched Dino Days

Merry Monday, my peeps!  Back at it, heh?  Hope your week goes well and with little stress!

For some reason, I’ve been unusually drawn to stamp sets and bundles in the new catalog that seem to be oriented towards kids and babies.  That’s not my usual, but…there’ve been several that really made me smile – and buy them!

One such bundle is the cute Dino Days stamp set – bundled with the Dino Dies – and the coordinating Dinoroar DSP.  So I pulled that out for today’s sweet little new baby card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was – maybe loosely? – inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenge.

And the color scheme is from this week’s Color Throwdown.

I started with one of my fave papers from the Dinoroar DSP and matted it on Mango Melody for the card front.  I used a small panel of Whisper White for the art panel.

I stamped the too-cute Dino Days dino-dude in Mango Melody and gave him some Pretty Peacock spines.  Underneath him, I stamped some fronds in Pretty Peacock – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  That let me have “different” colors without using “different” colors! 🙂

I matted the panel on Mango Melody and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the egg, I cut two of the dies from the Dino Dies in Whisper White.  I added some little circles in Pineapple Punch – then I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge on some Mango Melody (I got this idea from the samples in the catalog!).

On one egg shell, I stamped the Dino Days sentiment in Lovely Lipstick.  I popped that one on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added the second shell with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then added a Dinoroar Enamel Shape – sort of like a hinge.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second (and my favorite!!) sentiment from Dino Days in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White panel.  Over top I added a Mango Melody Dino-guy with stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock spines.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into a Pineapple Punch card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock dino-person on the front…

…and I used a little more of that totes-adorbs Dinoroar DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m guessing that you can see why this Dino Days stamp set and matching Dino Dies appeals to me?  Oh – did I mention that several of the dies cut out images on the Dinoroar DSP?  I didn’t?  Well – they DO! 😉  I hope you like!

Yesterday, we went to have Father’s Day with our friends.  As is the norm, I was tasked with deviled eggs and dessert.

Fortunately, I had a sous chef…

He tried to convince me that the sous chef gets to lick the beater…

And THEN he tried to convince me that eggs are good for dogs…

He’s pretty persuasive, really.  Also…persistent! 😉

Okay – confession time.  I put the bowl down on the floor after I’d pulled out all the egg filling!

As I’ve said – I’m not a MONSTER!!

Stampin’ Up! Fable Friends and First Steps for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebrate Spring!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to make a card to celebrate the arrival of a tiny human – seemed like a spring-time activity to me!

Or…is that just racehorses…hmmm… 😉

To make my baby card, I pulled out the Fable Friends and First Steps stamp sets from the Occasions catalog.  And I set them atop some Buffalo Check plaid.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Little Twinkle Double-Easel Fun Fold

Good Saturday morning, y’all!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned!  I’ll be working AND it’s supposed to be 110F!  YIKES!

If you were able to join me last night for my sort of “pop-up” Facebook Live video – thank you so much!  If not – but you’d like to see how to make today’s fun-fold…check the instant replay right here!

I’ve seen some Double Easel cards around in the blog-i-sphere in the past couple of weeks and I love a “regular” single-easel card, so…figuring TWO must be twice as good, I decided to do one of my own!  I made mine with the Little Twinkle stamp set and coordinating Twinkle Twinkle DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Bundle of Love Celebrate Baby Card

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!

I have a friend who’s so close to giving birth to their second child that…I hope she’s quit working!  She and her husband are folks I work with and they’re both smart as can be and sweet kids on top of that.  I’ve been sending their little boy a birthday present and card for all his 2 years and I’ll do the same with this little one. And this one’s a girl!!

Don’t get me wrong – there’s absolutely nothing wrong with baby boys.  They’re just as darling as baby girls.

But – come on.  Admit it!  The clothes for little girl humans are sooooo much cuter!

You know I’m right!!

So.  I decided I needed to get on the stick and make a card for the big event.  I bought some clothes to send and then I had a brain storm.   I’ll share it when it’s time.

My card starts with the really wonderful cards and decorations in the new Bundle of Love Card Pack – part of the new Memories & More goodies.  I added in a few images and sentiments from the A Little Wild stamp set and…Tabs for Everything.  Take a look-see (sorry for the shadow!):

Now – this one’ll take a minute to describe.  There’s a lot of moving parts.  This, folks, is what happens when I can’t decide what to do on a card, so I just start making.  And then I add a little of this. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Special Delivery In The City Sneak Peek

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  By the time you read this, we’ll be on the way to the horse-pital (we called it that when I was growing up – I have no idea why!) or – if you’re a late riser/reader, we’ll be in surgery.  By we, I mean…Wayne! I know he’s going to be a lot more relaxed once he’s asleep.  I know I will be! 😉

I made a quick little card for you today with a new Host-Exclusive stamp set that will be available on 1 June, called In The City.  It.  Is.  Very.  Fun!!

The In The City stamp is the total focus for this card – but I borrowed a tiny bit of paper from the Birthday Memories DSP.  Take a look-see

I played with a few challenges on this one.  The first, the Sunday Stamps challenge, is for the layout.

I borrowed my color scheme from the MFT Color Challenge.

Finally – I think this one fits with The Paper Players Clean-and-Simple Challenge this week.

I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped the stork image from In The City all over it with Versamark Ink, and then I SNAILd it on a Pacific Point mat.

For the next layer, I used a piece of Daffodil Delight paper from the Birthday Memories DSP, cut into a banner with my Banner Triple Punch and then matted on a similarly punched piece of Pacific Point.  Then I SNAILd the banner to the card front.

I used a little bit of Liquid Glue to adhere a Lace Doily white side up to the banner.

My sentiment is cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle in Whisper White.  Using the fun little images in the In The City stamp set, I added the outline images in Basic Black Archival Ink around the circle.  The sun is stamped in Daffodil Delight, as is the fill-in of the house.  The car fill in is in Pacific Point and – oddly! – I have Tangerine Tango trees.  I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to color the baby blanket and my Pumpkin Pie marker to color the trim on the house.  The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink.

I decided to stamp a second house on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut it – then popped it over the house on the circle with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I popped the sentiment circle over the Doily with more Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside. I stamped a second In The City sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I made another little city-scene across the bottom – coloring my Basic Black Archival Ink houses, cars and trees with stamped-off-once Tangerine Tango, Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point.  I even added another Daffodil Delight sun!  The houses’ trims are colored in Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.

I SNAILd the panel to a Pacific Point mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more houses and such across the front…

…and I added some more Birthday Memories DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Volia!  Easy squeezy nice and easy!  Love this little Host Set!  Hope you like and are figuring out how to get yours as soon as you can!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Last Finn update for a day or two!

We dropped him at Dog Camp yesterday afternoon!

He was ecstatic to see his new human friend and meet a new new human friend!  And see Ryder.

Those Beagles, though – they kinda bamboozled him.  He made the mistake of looking sideways at one of their dinner bowls.

Holy shimoly shameele!  The baying and yowling and scolding and dog-shouting…poor Finn just looked at me like…. what the….??

Soon after, though – all was forgiven.

Dogs forgive pretty quickly.  Humans should take heed! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Moon Baby Twinkle Star!

Good Tuesday morning to y’all!  Hope you’re having a good week so far.

Me?  I’m off in a couple of hours for a business trip to Hunstville –  back on Friday!  So I’ve been trying to get a little ahead on cards – since taking all my stuff for 3 days is…ridiculous!!

Isn’t it?

Yes.

Of course.

That would be crazy.

Speaking of crazy – my living room floor looks like a paper factory exploded in it.  Courtesy of…yes.  You got it.  The Paper Pilferer.

finn-on-the-ottoman
I think that picture pretty much says it all, don’t you?? 😉

My card for today is a study in timing!  I was sitting at my craft table yesterday afternoon when my husband’s nephew called to tell him they’d had their baby!  A little boy.  At that exact moment, I was holding the Moon Baby stamp set in my hands and all of a sudden I had an actual reason to make another baby card!  So…I pulled out some Floral Boutique DSP and the So Detailed Thinlits, and…take a look-see:
