Stampin’ Up! Updates for 12 Apr 16

Happy Tuesday, y’all! It’s that time of the week where I share the news from Stampin’ Up! and the new (and these are the LAST ONES!) Weekly Deals!

I’ll be ordering new 2016-2017 Annual Catalogs in the first week of May and sending them out around mid-May.  Scroll down to see how to get your FREE copy from me.  Then start your wish lists – ordering from the new catalog opens on 1 June!

There are some really fun products on the Weekly Deals….including the Acorn Punch and the Perfect Pines Framelits.  The punch is awesome, cuz you don’t even need a Big Shot! 🙂  Here’s a couple of projects you could make with this punch (at it’s great sale price!) and it’s matching stamp set called Acorny Thank You…

Stampin’ Up! You’re So Lovely Summer Silhouettes and a Blog Candy Winner!

Hello Monday! Hope y’all had a great weekend!

We had a Blog Candy Winner – from a lot of comments. Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by! Read on and I’ll share the winner’s name at the end of this post!

I’ll get right into the share today – won’t waste your time with a lot of blather about non-card-stuff! My card today uses the Summer Silhouettes and You’re So Lovely stamp sets. Very simple and easy – using a sponging technique that I saw on Pinterest. Stamp & Create With Sabrina is the website where I saw the original card that led me to mine today!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Garden in Bloom Smiles!

Well, good morning! Here we are, half way thru the weekend, getting closer and closer to OnStage next week! Practicing my “whoo-hoo”ing – in preparation for the unveiling of the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog! Should be pretty exciting. I’m also going to get to tour the home office, so I’m psyched for that, too! 🙂

My share for today uses the very pretty Annual catalog stamp set called Garden in Bloom. It has such pretty flowers – two step and three step images! I added a little sentiment from Greatest Greetings – in the Occasions catalog (hoping it makes it into the new catalog!). And, when you add in Birthday Bouquet DSP, this is what you get. Take a look-see:

My layout was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch #442:

Stampin’ Up! Helping Me Grow Thanks!

Happy Weekend! Hope that you’re fixin’ to do something fun. Or industrious! Or – if you’re really really good….something fun and industrious! I have no idea what that something could possibly be….maybe gardening? Training your puppy? Certainly not vacuuming! Or anything in the “housecleaning” category – that for sure fails as a “fun” anything! 🙁

My card today is a super simple one – almost a one stamp set card! I used the Occasions catalog set called Helping Me Grow on some Birthday Bouquet DSP. Add in a tiny sentiment from One Big Meaning, and….take a look-see:

I was playing along with the Can You CASE It sketch challenge #114 – but I missed the deadline to enter! 🙁 Here’s the sketch that inspired my layout, nonetheless. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Playful Pals

Good Morning – it’s Friday again! Wow – time is just flying by, isn’t it? Only 5 more days until we leave for OnStage. End of the month is fast approaching as well, which will bring a trip to Savannah and the arrival of tomato and pepper plants – all ready for transplanting!  Hopefully not all at the same time! 🙂

Do y’all know about a company called Territorial Seeds?  If you like to garden and grow veggies in the summer (or fall or whenever!) this is a great source of seed and – what I love! – plants!  You can select when you want them to arrive, based on the best time for your neck of the woods.  Then they come all cozy in their packaging – some of the best I’ve ever seen – and they’re ready to harden off and plant.  This will be my third year using them (I get nothing from this – I just really like them!) and have had superb results every year.  Just throwin’ that out there! 🙂

So, the last time we had a meeting with Amy Koenders, she gave us all a little gift – like she always does!  This time around, I picked the Playful Pals stamp set, bundled with the Pyramid Pals Thinlits.  I finally decided to get it out and play with it.  I added some Botanical Gardens DSP and a flower from the Botanical Builder, and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

LOL, I love how the frog has a sort of goofy expression on his face – he’s obviously tickled for having snagged him a little snackerel – and maybe he even wants to present it to the birthday girl or boy as a special gift! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Greetings In the Meadow Silhouette and…Blog Candy!

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  Days are just flying by – one short week from today, Amy Koenders and I will be winging our way West to attend OnStage Live in Salt Lake!  Where we’re going to get to see the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog!  Yikes – can you believe it’s that time already?!?  That, of course, means it’s almost time to say good-bye to the current catalog and the 2016 Occasions Catalog – the retiring list will be released on 18 April (right after OnStage).  So, you’ll want to be thinking about getting stocked up!

Well, today was productive.  I updated my Inventory Spreadsheet, alphabetized my stamp sets, and got a new Office Chair!  Yeah!  It actually has padded parts – and it swivels.  And will roll – once I get one of those plastic mat things you put over the carpet.  Makes a huge difference over that wooden kitchen chair I’ve been sitting in.  It’s the little things, isn’t it?

So, the card I have to share with you today is a quick and easy, Clean and Simple birthday card, using one of my favorite Occasions stamp sets – In the Meadow.  And one of the pretty sentiments from Cottage Greetings.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Updates for 5 Apr 16

Okay – lots to share with you today!

  • Next – Annual Catalogs are coming soon!  If you’ve ordered $50 or more from me in the past 12 months – I”ll be sending you a catalog just as soon as I can send them out – probably around the first week in May.  If you haven’t ordered from me – there’s still time!  Just click on my Online Store icon over there to the right side of your screen and get shopping!  Just be sure to check “Yes” at the screen that asks you if your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (that would be me!) can contact you! I promise I won’t bug you – but if you don’t select that, I can’t see anything about you – so…I can’t send you your ordering gift, sign you up for my Rewards Program or send you a catalog!  Nuthin’! 🙂
  • And – speaking of Annual Catalogs – the official Retiring List will be released on 18 April – and will include the 2014-2016 In Colors and other items from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog and the 2016 Occasions Catalog.  Once that hits the streets, the stock of 2014-2016 In Color ink refills and card stock is going to go away fast!  So, take a few minutes – do it today, so you don’t forget! – to stock up on your favorite colors!!  I’ve got a handy listing of 2014-2016 In Color goodies down below for you!

Stampin’ Up! Love You Sew Number of Years

Hello hello!  Welcome to another week of stampin’ and makin’ here at Stamps-N-Lingers!  I’m feeling awfully perky this evening as I type up the post for Monday.  Wayne and I spent much of the day at a Shoe Repair Expo.  Yes.  That’s a thing! 😉  It was fun – and fueled our long-tamped-down desire to open a shoe repair of our own.

Add in the fact that the day was gorgeous…well, I’m just in a good mood! 🙂

So – the card I have to share is a fun Birthday Card.  I combined two great Occasions catalog stamp sets – the Love You Sew host set and the Number of Years bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Greatest Greetings Rainbow Kitty Sympathy Card

Good morning!  Wow – this was a gorgeous day here in Atlanta (I’m typing this on Saturday night)!  The past two days of rain and stormy weather that signaled the passage of a cold front left the air sparkling and (momentarily!) pollen-less-than-normal (not pollen-free but at least we’ve been able to have a few windows open today!)!  The dogwood trees and azaleas are going crazy – we only have a few that the previous owners planted – but everywhere you drive are mounds and mounds of azaleas in every color!  They’re so spectacular they’ll almost literally make you gasp when you round a curve in the road and see them.  Here’s a picture of one of my little ones –


Now, imagine that about 10 times bigger and in a group of about a hundred!  All enmass under tall pine trees.  Yes, that’s how folk plant them here and it’s magnificent!  If I’d been smart and planted one a year since we moved here…I’d have my very own breathtaking display.  As it is…I look at my meager group and go out of my way to drive down roads where I know I’ll see them!

I’ve spent too much time the past couple of days trying to make a card that can come close to echoing the colors of the azaleas….I have yet to be successful. 🙁

So, the card I have to share with you today is a sympathy card for the loss of a pet.  My friend needed one for her friend who, apparently, had a mama kitty who had trouble delivering a litter – and lost all the babies. 🙁 That’s a pretty sad thing.  So….she asked me to make a card to send.  I used a non-Stampin’ Up! kitty image – and combined it with the rainbow-building swath image from Over the Rainbow.  My sentiment is from the ever-handy Greatest Greetings and I also added some of the very pretty flowers from the Number of Years stamp set.  It’s easy to forget how pretty those flowers are – the number images pretty much steal the show!  But…take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch Totally Awesome!

Good morning, y’all – hope that you fared okay with the weather these past couple of days – it’s been pretty wild in the South.  We got lucky – nuthin’ but some lightning and a bit of rain.  The horses spent the night tucked up in their stalls with their fans keeping the bugs off – ahh, the life of Riley for them, huh? 🙂


So, I’ve got a quick card to share with you today, that uses my oh-so-fave Grateful Bunch stamp set and its matching punch – Blossom Bunch.  Which I got – and so can you! – as a 15% off bundle!  And Timeless Textures – again!  Take a look-see:
