Stampin’ Up! Simply Potted Succulents Sneak Peek Thank You

Mornin’, y’all – hope you’re looking forward to a short week if you have to work!  If not – I hope you’re enjoying leftover Christmas dinner and the lights on your tree!  We “solved” our tree light issue by….just not turning them off!  We turn them to multi-colored when we go to bed – even from the living room the white lights are too bright in the bedroom for Wayne.  Me?  I’d probably string twinkle lights over my headboard and sleep with them on year round.  😉  Then I put them back on white when I get up!  Hopefully we can get a power adaptor before the next holiday tree-time!

Or…a new tree!

Speaking of trees – today’s card has no trees on it.  It has…succulents!  Simply Succulents, to be exact – cut out with the bundled Potted Succulents Dies.  I also used some Sand & Sea DSP to create a…desert feel for my thank you card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Wild Roses & Happy Thoughts Sneak Peek

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day and…Merry Christmas Eve Eve!  Ready or not….it’s upon us, y’all!

We’re headed today to get my Christmas present.  I’m excited!  I mean – it’s a work thing, but…still!   Only downside is we have to do the trek to Atlanta to get it.  Bleh.  But – I’m still excited!

My card today is a play on the Triple Time Technique – made quick and easy with the oh-so-handy-and-awesome Stamparatus!  I used two new stamp sets – that you’ll be able to get on 5 Jan.  One is a lovely background stamp called Wild Roses and the other is the wonderful Happy Thoughts sentiment set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Dragonfly Garden Sneak Peek on the Diagonal!

Good morning!  Did y’all see the convergence?  We went down into the arena where we had as clear a shot as there is (we’re sort of surrounded by trees).  We saw the two planets pretty close together – but…the pair slipped down below our effective horizon around 7:30.  I’ve seen photos online, but… we didn’t get to see it.  The moon, on the other hand…the MOON!  Oh my.  We had the binoculars and…it was…just amazing.  The detail I could see with just the nocs made me really think a telescope would be cool! 😉

So – one little admin-y note…I’ve had an opening come up in my Online Host Club (one member is planning to join the team in January – whoo-hoo!!!).  So…if you’d like to get Stampin’ Up! goodies a little at a time – AND earn Double Peppermints and Stampin’ Rewards (aka “free money to spend”) – without any “host duties”! – then give me a holler!  The club starts in January!

My card for today showcases a new Suite in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog – the Dandy Garden Suite!  For this one, I’ve got the Dragonfly Garden stamp set, some Dandy Laser-Cut Paper and Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Wishes Sneak Peak with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players –  Claire’s got a cool color challenge for us all … I hope you’ll come and play along with us!  While the challenge seems like a great New Year’s card – I came up with something a little different!  What will you make??  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

For this one, I pulled out the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and the Dragonflies Punch!  These items will be available on 5 Jan 2021 in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.  And – for the BIG impact – I used a piece of the Dandy Laser-Cut Paper – which is also part of the Dandy Garden Suite!  Take a look-see:

Here’s the Paper Players color challenge just in case you weren’t able to figure it out! 😉

My layout is loosely based on the Global Design Project sketch this week.

I started with a piece of Basic Black that I matted on Silver Foil for the card front.

Next, I selected a panel of the new Dandy Laser-Cut Paper and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to a piece of Basic Black card stock the same size.  Then I matted that on Silver Foil and popped it onto the card front with the Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another piece of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from Dragonfly Garden in Versamark Ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

Tip:  when you heat emboss, the powder turns into a liquid-y form until it cools off.  Be careful to not stick your fingers in it.  Trust me.  It won’t run or anything, but it WILL smear/come off.  Once it’s good and cool, you’re good to go! 😉

So – when it was cool, I cut it with a die from the Tasteful Labels die set.

I cut two lengths of Black 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots.

Then I popped the sentiment over top with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched a bevy of bitty dragonflies from Silver Foil using the Dragonflies Punch.   Two of them I adhered to the sentiment with Liquid Glue and the other three I popped on with mini Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And – that was it for the card front!

I DID toy with adding some Rhinestones, but….held myself back!

On the inside, I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the little dragonflies and a second sentiment from Dragonfly Garden on a Whisper White panel.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Silver Foil mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Tuxedo Black Dragonfly Garden dragonflies on the front…

…and a large dragonfly on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Dandy Garden Suite – with the Dragonfly Garden and the Dragonflies Punch as an integral part! – is absolutely one of my favorite new goodies in the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog!

 

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

I hope you like!

Now…take a look at what the rest of the team has to offer!  Then pull out your ink and papers and have a little fun! 🙂

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK IS RETIRING!

SHIMMERY WHITE 8-1/2" X 11" CARDSTOCK

Stampin’ Up! posted this update late in the day on Thursday. 

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes.  Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected.  Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

We also have a video message addressing some potential concerns that you may have. This video goes over a comparison of Whisper White to Basic White so you will know what to expect with this change. You can watch the video here.

It’s always hard to say goodbye, but we are excited about the new Basic White product line and we encourage you to try it out! We are confident that you’ll love it just as much as we do.

  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.

  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)

  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   The launch of a new catalog and Sale-A-Bration is ALWAYS a great time to join a club!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

Stampin’ Up! A Dandy Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Good morning, y’all!  Well – less than 2 weeks to go!  I DID get to the store yesterday and did knock out a little of what needs to be mailed. And some more baking is on the books for today!  Fingers crossed!

One admin note before the sneak peek – I hope you guys all saw the update about Whisper White being discontinued?  The items affected are selling out fast!  So – do not delay.  If you need more – NOW is truly the time to jump on the bandwagon!

I’m planning to go live tonight at 7pm Eastern time over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page to bring you a fun – and different! – card!  Not a fun fold but…fun nonetheless!  Take a sneaky peek!

I think it’s a fun one – a real…Dandy! – and I hope you’ll be able to join me!

Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here.

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn has been vindicated.

All those pictures in which he appears to be begging his dad for food.

Well – it’s not his fault!

Even Katy has the Dad’s number.

I’m pretty sure Wayne eats no meals without “assistance”! 😉

Finn – and Katy.  Common denominator?

Wayne.

Just sayin’.

And – it works…

…so….it’s unlikely to change any time soon!

What is an Online Host Club?  Glad you asked!An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host!  And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time.  While earning FREE goodies!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas In The Woods with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – Joanne’s got a timely theme for us so… I hope you’ll come and play along with us!  You KNOW you’re making Christmas cards right now! 🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I enjoy the Festive Friday challenge – and saw a cool fun-fold by Beth McCullough – one of their talented Design Team members – and decided to figure it out and make it for you today!  Beth made an adorable snowman with hers – but…I’d been wanting to play with the negative-space die from the Pine Woods die so…I pulled out the In The Woods bundle (which – waaaah! – is retiring at the end of this catalog!

Good news?  Starting 8 Dec – you can pick up the die set for 30% off!).  I added a couple of sentiments from the Itty Bitty Christmas set – and set it all against some Snowflake Splendor DSP (ALSO retiring and on sale!).  Take a look-see:

 

Here’s our Paper Players challenge badge with our Christmas theme!

And – you guessed it!  I played with the Festive Friday challenge, too!  Let’s see, I got….blue, a little purple, snowflakes, fun fold, and trees! 🙂

I started with a side-fold card base in Misty Moonlight.

Then I matted a piece of the Snowflake Splendor DSP on Highland Heather and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the largest of the Stitched So Sweetly Rectangle Dies, I cut a “window” from the front of the card.  You might need to roll thru your cutter a few times – it’s a few layers to cut!

I took the next biggest die in Stitched So Sweetly and cut a piece of Whisper White.  From that, I used the die in Pine Woods to cut the negative of the tree.

For the “fun fold” piece, I used a piece of Highland Heather – 5″ x 8 1/2″ and scored it at 4″ and 6 1/4″.  The 4″ score line is folded as a “valley” and the 6 1/4″ as a “mountain”.

I adhered two coordinating pieces of the Snowflake Splendor DSP to the two smaller flaps.

I adhered the folded cardstock into the inside of the card base with Liquid Glue.

I folded the card back up – and used Liquid Glue to adhere the cut-out part of the card front to the outside smaller panel of the fold.  Take your time adding your glue – don’t get carried away!

Next – I popped the tree-die-cut Whisper White panel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped an Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a piece of Whisper White and cut it out with the Classic Label Punch.  I popped it onto the card front with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Blue Adhesive-Backed Gem to the white panel and the card front was done!

For the inside, I added a second Itty Bitty Christmas sentiment in Misty Moonlight to a Whisper White panel.  Over top, I added the two In the Woods 3-tree images – outline and fill! – in stamped-off-once Highland Heather.  I added some Pool Party snowflakes – also from In The Woods –

and adhered the panel into the card base with Liquid Glue…

…added another Blue Adhesive-Backed Gem and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got full strength Highland Heather trees and Pool Party snowflakes on the front…

…and more of the Snowflake Splendor DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  How fun is this fun-fold?  And…it’s even pretty easy – so…winner winner!  And I love the In The Woods stamp set and matching Pine Woods Dies – but, they’re leaving us soon, so…you’re going to want to pick them up if you don’t have them.

Starting on Tuesday, 8 Dec – you can get the dies at 30% off.  And the beautiful Snowflake Spendor DSP – also retiring at the end of the catalog! – will be on sale at 20% off!  Whoo-hoo for savings!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

I hope you like!

Now…take a look at what the rest of the team has to offer!  Then pull out your ink and papers and have a little fun! 🙂
