Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Brick & Mortar Christmas

Happy Happy FRI-AWWWMP Day!

I know you know what I was doing there.

I hope this really IS your last work day of the week.

I also hope that you took your turkey out of the freezer!  I took ours out on Monday.  Which…might have been okay (I was THINKING it was okay!) if it was a 12-13 pound turkey.  This is a 21-pounder, so…it’s now languishing in water in a bucket in the fridge in the barn.  We’ll see. Fingers crossed!

My card today is a jump forward to Christmas – cuz…it’s like tomorrow!!  And it’s super easy and let’s the Night Before Christmas DSP really do all the work – with an assist from the Suite’s Memories & More Card Pack and the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

And the theme falls right into the photo inspiration from Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I started with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder – and I swiped my Whisper White Craft Pad over the DE-bossing side of the folder.  Then I carefully stuck my Cherry Cobbler panel into the folder and ran it thru my die cutting machine with the 3D Embossing Folder Plate.

Once it was embossed – and lightly accented with white – I used the Craft Pad again to swipe lightly across the raised portions of the embossed panel.

I picked three fun designs from the Night Before Christmas DSP and cut three circles with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut scalloped-edge circles of Gold Glimmer with the Circles Layering Framelits.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the DSP circles to their Gold Glimmer mats.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the largest circle to the Brick-embossed panel.  Then I popped the other two circles on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out my Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and selected a sentiment sticker in Pretty Peacock.  I used my Embossing Buddy to “dull” the stick ’em on the back of the sticker and then popped it onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Holly Jolly Christmas in Pretty Peacock to a Whisper White panel.  Next to it is a couple of candy cane stickers from the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gold Glimmer Paper mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base.  For the front, I added a Gold Glimmer panel at an angle with Liquid Glue, then popped the card front over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack candy canes on the front…

…and then I continued the candy cane theme with some more of the Night Before Christmas DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  The Night Before Christmas Suite is so….perfect!  I love the paper and the Memories & More card pack goodies – and the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and matching Jolly Christmas Dies.  It’s such fun and chock-a-block full of Santa-y Christmas goodness!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


We’re in tempt-the-old-cat-to-make-her-eat mode these days.  She’s apparently got some kidney function loss and that appears to affect appetite.  So…we’re on a quest.  Not only will we give her appetite stimulating meds – and antacid.  Via a shot.  Huh?  But that’s what the vet told us.  So…that’s what we’ll do.

In the meantime, I hit the grocery each day to get a selection of tempting morsels for the princess.

Just so you know – this is NOT the most cost-effective way to feed a cat.  Especially given that the super-special-I-love-them-so-much-give-me-MOREMOREMORE treats of Saturday become the you’ve-got-to-be-kidding-why-would-you-try-to-make-me-eat-THAT treats on Sunday.  🙁

But – on Tuesday, I found a secret for the time being.  It needs a date/time stamp of her approval, but…right this second…beef baby food mixed with Fancy Feast Grilled with Gravy seems to be hitting the spot for her!

This is a clean bowl for this little cat!

Finn is…less than thrilled by the super-special-I-know-it’s-the-bestest-food-ever-on-any-planet-anywhere-and-why-can’t-I-have-it that SHE gets and HE doesn’t.

See him out there?  He raced from one door to the other several times in an effort to get my attention to let me know he NEEDED to come in RIGHT NOW!!

Poor pitiful little 85-pound dog…he never gets anything good to eat…

Stampin’ Up! Holly Jolly Deer Night Before Christmas Card

Good morning!  How goes your week?

Ours is cooking along – I’m trying to get back into the swing of things.  Might have gotten a bit ahead of myself on the treadmill yesterday morning.  But – gotta get back at it!!  I feel so triumphant when I get done and so durned…guilty!!…when I don’t do it!

Must say – if anyone had told me six-seven months ago that I’d be anxious to get back on the treadmill….I’d have flat ROFL my hiney off!!

So – let’s talk about something way less nauseating than a treadmill.  Like….Christmas cards!!  As it happens, I have one to share with you today – that uses the Holly Jolly Christmas bundle and some Night Before Christmas DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Night Before Christmas Card

‘Sup, y’all!

Well – you should be proud of me!  I spent the hour waiting for my car yesterday in the Honda showroom.

And I did NOT come out with a new van!

And it was TEMPTING as all get out!

So…yeah me! 🙂

My card today is one you can put together lickety-split, as long as your tool box has the right tools in it – like… the awesome Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and DSP.  AND – the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and bundled Christmas Layers Dies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Before Christmas

Good Tuesday!  Hope everyone’s week is going well.  We’re trying to finish up the 2018 taxes – so…that sort of sucks.  But – we’re taking them to AL to the accountant on Thursday so I guess they’ll be “done” then! LOL!

My card today is a quick and easy one – thanks to the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and the So Many Stars Bundle!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is – loosely! – based on the sketch from the TGIF Challenge this week!

And I decided it fit pretty well with The Paper Players CAS challenge…

I started with one of the wonderful Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes for the card base, and one of the smaller cards in the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack.  I adhered that small card to a Shaded Spruce mat and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next up, I pulled out the So Many Stars bundle – that includes the stamp set and the amazing Stitched Stars Dies – and some Gold Foil.  I cut a solid star and a detailed star from the Gold Foil and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

I cut a couple of smaller stars – one from Shaded Spruce and one from Cherry Cobbler – and two detailed Gold Foil stars – and created those stacks as well.  Then I adhered those stars to the Gold Star with Liquid Glue.

I stuck a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the star-stack and used them to wind some of the gold tinsel from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Striped Ribbon.  Then I used a couple more Glue Dots to adhere the stacked stars over top.

I finished off with a few gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Medley – including one in the middle of the stacked stars!

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from So Many Stars in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I added some stars in Golden Glitz Delicata and Shaded Spruce inks.  Over the sentiment, I added the scattered stars image (also from So Many Stars) in Golden Glitz Delicata Ink.

I used one of the large cards from the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack as a mat and adhered the panel to it and then inside the card base with Liquid Glue, and the card was done!

The Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes include already-decorated envelopes – but…I added some stars and scattered-stars in Golden Glitz on the front…

…and on the flap.

Et Voila!  These Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes are such a fun starting point for so many cards – especially at Christmas (but…don’t forget patriotic cards, too – add a little Night of Navy or Blueberry Bushel!) and when you ALSO use the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack – then the “easy” just got “peasy”!! 😉  And, I think the So Many Stars Bundle is SO pretty with all the wonderful images and sentiments and the gorgeous Stitched Stars Dies!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn hates when one of the ponies rubs their neck on the stall door.  Or…their butt on the wall.  Or…make any noise whatsoever in their stalls.

It makes him crazy and he boing-boing-boings to the front of the offender’s stall, barking ferociously.

It’s quite menacing.

They are completely unimpressed and they ignore his annoyance COMPLETELY.

I’m sure that’s demoralizing for him! 😉

Out in the pasture, Cady – the younger pony – is wont to spend a considerable amount of time rubbing various parts of her body on almost any tree she can find.

She’s itchy, okay?  She can’t help it! And no – that tree does NOT make her butt look big.  It actually IS big – it’s part of her DNA and charm! 😉

As I sit on the porch after letting everyone out…I can tell when she’s “doing it”.

Yes – he’s “pointing” at her.

So…I holler….”CADY!!!  Get off that tree!!!”

It’s quite menacing.

She is completely unimpressed and she ignores my annoyance COMPLETELY.

It’s quite demoralizing for me! 😉

But – Finn, in a show of solidarity (and because he’s always looking for an excuse to boing-bounce-bark) he goes flying to the fence barking.

Guess – go ahead, guess!! – how much she cares about THAT!??

Yea.  Not.  Even.  A.  Bit.

😉
