Stampin’ Up! Over the Rainbow Hello!

Good Sunday to y’all.  I’ll make it quick and easy for you today so that you can get on with your weekend!

Today’s card is a clean and simple, lightly layered – one might even say barely layered! – note card suitable for just about any kind of a day.  Need to say “hey!”?  This is the card.  Need to tell someone you were thinking about them?  Here you go!

I used a swoopy swatch image from the Over the Rainbow stamp set and a die cut from the Greetings Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanicals Thanks For You!

Well, it’s happened.  I’ve got projects to share stockpiled on my desk.  We’re done with our project.  There’re no more excuses.  All that’s left is to tape together boxes, load them up and get them to the post office tomorrow.  And then I’m out on Saturday!  I do have to keep reminding myself that I have tomorrow to pack and mail and mentally prepare.  You’d think I’d be extra anxious to leave and get home, but…I’m not all that comfortable with changes.  It’s forever been true for me that I’m better at being gone than I am at getting gone.  It’s why I do 3 – 4 month trips versus a couple of weeks and then home and then back and then home….  I nest up.  I get comfy where I am and in the routine du jour.  Switching it up….yuk.

But, tomorrow it’s time – and, truthfully, once I start the process and get into it – all will be well.  It’s funny, I can almost feel my brain make the transition from being “here” to being “there”.  I can’t predict when it will happen – but I’ll all of a sudden realize, sometime between right this second and getting on the plane on Sunday….I’m ready to be home!

And that probably falls into the TMI category, and what-the-heck-is-she-talking-about-why-doesn’t-she-get-on-with-the-card!! 😉  Sorry.

So, for today, I have a card that leans heavily on some of the beautiful papers and stamps in the Sale-a-Bration flyer.  Wildflower Fields DSP is some of the prettiest paper I’ve seen.  I’ve combined it with another of the free goodies in the SAB – Botanicals For You.  Add in the ever-versatile One Big Meaning, from the Annual Catalog and a little Botanical Garden Designer Vellum and….take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! What I Love Thank You and a Blog Candy Winner!

Sunday means a day of rest!!  Whoo-hoo!  And this week, it also means the announcement of the winner of last week’s Blog Candy!  Scroll on down to see if you’re the lucky one! 🙂

I went back to a beautiful stamp set that you can earn free in the Sale-A-Bration flyer, called What I Love.  I really like the pretty 3-step rose image that is the focal point of that set.  So I used it and combined it with a little Birthday Bouquet DSP from the Occasions catalog to make today’s share.  And, since I needed to replenish Thank You cards, I tapped one of my favorite Annual Catalog sets – One Big Meaning.   Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Words and One Big Meaning Thank You Cards

Well, here it is again – FRIDAY!  Wow.  It’s weird that I sit at work and the time drags but then I write my posts and my first week in AZ is already in the history books!  I’m most definitely not complaining – I’m already looking forward to the end of the trip!

So, in my Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator persona, one thing I can never have too many of is Thank You cards!  When I recently sent my 2016 Occasions Catalog shares out, I included (as I always do!) a Thank You note in each package.  I put together a stack of them, using the Watercolor Thank You stamp and some of the new Sale-a-Bration Perfectly Artistic DSP.  I liked them so much that I decided to make a few more, and share them with you!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Wildflower Fields Thank You for the Happy Stamper’s Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2

Here we are with the first Happy Stampers Blog Hop of 2016!  We’re all having fun with Sale-A-Bration (I really REALLY love free stuff – and there’s a LOT of it to be had right now!) and stamping and creating with our goodies – new and not-so-new!  I hope that you’ll take a minute to hop thru the hop and tell everyone what you think of their projects!

Today’s hop centered around a sketch Challenge.  Here’s where we started!

Happy Stampers Blog Hop Sketch for 7 Jan 16

I decided to work with some of my very favorite new items from the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  Wildflower Fields DSP and the coordinating Flowering Fields stamp set.  I got both of them free with a $50 order (well, one for each $50 order, of course!).  And they’re so pretty – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning and a Botanical Gardens Sneak Peek

Mike Mike Mike Mike MIKE!

That’s right  – it’s HAWMP day again!  Two more days till the weekend.  Then one more week. Then – in theory! – home!  Not that I’m counting or anything!! 🙂

I hope that you guys are making progress on your Christmas preparations and present getting and card making!

Today’s card is another sneak peek of the new Botanical Builder Framelits and the Botanical Gardens DSP.  For the sentiment, I used the One Big Meaning stamp set from the 2015 Annual Catalog.  I love that set – the sentiments are so fun and the fonts are wonderful.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning Goes Wild About Flowers!

**Late breaking (or early, depending on your perspective!) news….I found out this morning that my card from the other day…

Give Thanks For All Things 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

…was selected as a Pals Paper Arts Artist Pick!  What a great thing to wake up to….Check it out here if you want to see the post and how it was made.  Thanks to all the Artists over at Pals Paper Arts for picking my card!  And – y’all go over and check them and the other winners out, okay?

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming!

******************************************

Well, folks – here it is, Hawmp-Day! Again! Today, after I got “home” from work, I persuaded the hotel folks to give me a table – a little bigger than I need, and it’s a little in the way of housekeeping, but….it works! Tomorrow I’ll set out all my stuff and I’ll be in business again. And – if I can just adjust to the time change, I’ll be ready to roll!

For today, I’m sharing a card that I made last week in anticipation of this lag in my ability to make cards here. I saw a card on Mary Fish’s blog that featured a flower “arrangement” in a vase. And the idea was so ridiculously easy and clever that I had to do my own take on it! The end result is a combination of One Big Meaning, Wild About Flowers (a new addition that I’d not really used yet) and some lovely Into the Woods DSP. And – there’s one other ingredient that is the source of the “secret”! Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves and One Big Meaning for Super Simple Saturday!

Hello from Tampa!  An uneventful drive down – I love my van! – was followed by a tiny fox-pass (that’s southern for faux pas) in the room assignment (room wasn’t ready but they gave me a key anyway!), I’m settled in my room, waiting for Amy Koenders to arrive.  We went out to meet Jari Francis to check out a Taco spot that was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  I try to check those spots out when I’m in a town – I figure if Guy Fieri ate there and liked it enough to put on the show – then it’s for sure good enough for me.  I’ve had a bunch of truly outstanding meals following his “guidance”!  And – as advertised….really good Fried Grouper Taco!! yummmmm

I’m fixin’ to head out the door, wearing my new Brighton badge lanyard (from my oh-so-wonderful friend and upline Amy Koenders!) and wanted to share quick pic….  this is my view out my window!

There’s the convention center on the near-right where the festivities are about to begin.  There’s even a walk-way from the hotel to the center.  No street crossings! 🙂  Stay tuned for an update  – maybe this evening – on what went on today!

Today’s share is super simple – even if it does take more than one stamp set.  It uses the Vintage Leaves and the One Big Meaning stamp sets, with a little Gorgeous Grunge as a supporting character – and Into the Woods DSP.  I did mine in Tangelo Twist – but you could also do this in any color that coordinates with Into the Woods (like….Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry….all would be great color choices for this design).  See what I mean – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning Thanks Veteran’s Today!

Happy Veteran’s Day – to those who are currently serving – I thank you.  From the bottom of my heart.  Your selfless dedication and willingness to pay the ultimate price so that we may live in peace in our beautiful land is a blessing to us all.  I pray for your safety and your swift return home!  To the men and women who served and are now pursuing lives in the private world – I salute you!  And Thank You.  You gave up years of your lives with your families and friends, to protect us.  We owe you everything!

To that end, today’s share is a blatantly patriotic, red white and blue thank you card.  Since it features a Festive Flower, I suspect it would be more suitable to Soldiers/Airmen/Sailors/Marines of the female variety, but – there’s a lot of those folks these days. 🙂  I used the festive Flower Punch and the One Big Meaning stamp set – filled with all sorts of great Thank You sentiments.  And some glitter.  Okay – maybe kind of a lot!

Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Little Something Cute Personalized Gift Card Holder

Just a quick little project for you today.  We’re headed into the gift giving season – and most of us have a few folks on our list who just sort of….befuddle us….when it comes to what to get for that person.  For some reason, most of those people on my list are guys!  Hmmm.  Not sure why – but there it is.  I always kind of hate to do a gift card – somehow it seems like a cop out.  On the other hand – a gift card always fits, is always the right color, and is usually something they want! I do try to pick gift cards that are suited to that person.  Bass Pro for my hubby (usually in addition to other gifts), Amazon for the twenty-something boys/men who are in college and starting a career.  None of them want a Bed, Bath and Beyond gift card, or a Williams-Sonoma card! 🙂

The Gift Card holder I’ve made to share with you today was a requested item.  My friend has a friend (yes – more than just me!) who has found herself in the unenviable position of having a house full of mice.  Not a couple.  Not even a few.  Apparently – it’s an “infestation”, that she found one evening when she “heard a noise in her kitchen and when she turned the light on, there THEY were”.  The poor woman has spent thousands and thousands of dollars getting rid of the mice and replacing everything she fears might have been “touched”.

So, Jan is giving her a gift card (Bed, Bath and Beyond maybe?!) to help her replace some stuff.  And she asked me for a gift card holder.  With maybe a….mouse…. on it.  She assured me her friend will find it funny!

I’ve put up a Tutorial to show you how to make the basic Gift Card holder using the Envelope Punch Board.  It’s so easy it’s ridiculous.  Check it out here!  So, I made that holder, and then I decorated it according to her request!  Take a look-see:
