Stampin’ Up! Toile Joyful Holly with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a good weekend in store – mine is BIG!

Tomorrow, I’ll head up to the Gainseville area to attend Matt and Katelyn’s wedding.  Jan and I have been discussing what we’re going to wear and when.  We’ll go this afternoon and get a manicure.

Well – two.  One each. 😉

I’m looking forward to the whole thing – been a while coming!

If you’re doing the math, you’ll have realized I probably won’t be on my Facebook video tomorrow evening – the rehearsal dinner is then.  I am…touched beyond measure that we were invited to that – especially given then we’re neither parents nor wedding party!  I guess we’re honorary parents!

Shoot.  Let the tears start! 🥰😢

Anywho – sniff – let’s talk card!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds on Dandelions!

Well – good morning and Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!

These are words that are scaring me a little!  It means…I’ve only got three more days – including TODAY!! – to get my cards all ready – links prepped for next week’s blog hop – and (hopefully!) some work-ahead on blog posts done!  Why?  Cuz – I’m goin’ to the chapel and my friend is gettin’ maaarrried….goin’ to the chapel-which-is-really-an-event-center and my friend is gettin’ maaaarrried!

Yes – it’s here!  Matt and Katelyn are getting married on Sunday at a gorgeous vineyard/event center up north of us!  Going to spend the weekend and probably do some crying.  Note to self: go buy waterproof mascara!!

I’m excited for them – I know it’s going to be gorgeous.  And will post some pictures if they’ll let me!

So.  Card.  Focus.

I pulled an older stamp set from the shelf for today’s card – it’s the Beauty Abounds set with the coordinating Butterfly Beauty die set.  I set the whole thing atop some Flowers for Every Season DSP and a Dandelions 3D-embossed panel.  Take a look-see:

The reason that I gravitated to Beauty Abounds for this one is thanks to the inspiration from the Just Us Girls Wild-Card challenge.

And I pulled my layout from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

I started with a same-size-as-the-front-of-the-card piece of Flowers for Every Season DSP that I adhered to the front of my Early Espresso card base with Liquid Glue.  Hint: be sure that the panel is straight and doesn’t need to be trimmed down at all BEFORE you decorate it. 😉

Don’t ask how I know.  Cuz I know that you know how I know.

You know??

I used a smaller panel of Whisper White and embossed it in one of my FAVORITE embossing folders – the Dandelions 3D Embossing Folder (which you could choose if you take advantage of my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Ordering Special!).  I matted that panel on Just Jade and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sweet sentiment from Beauty Abounds in Just Jade on Whisper White and cut it with one of the Ornate Frames sentiment label dies – then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From some Rainbow Glimmer Paper, I cut a few large and small butterflies with the Butterfly Beauty dies – the larger die cuts are part of the large detailed die – I used Paper Snips to separate out the two big butterflies that I wanted.

I lightly curled the wings of the larger die cut butterflies and adhered everything with Liquid Glue.

And resisted the urge to add…anything!…and called the card front good!

On the inside, I added another full-size panel of Flowers for Every Season with Liquid Glue.

On a Whisper White panel, I added a second sentiment from Beauty Abounds in Just Jade.  Then I stamped a couple of butterflies in stamped-off-once Magenta Madness ink.  Then I added some of the smaller bokeh-dots image in Mango Melody.  Hint:  my ink pad is needing some re-inking, so the image is quite faint, even at full strength.  Double check yours and be sure it’s light enough – if not, stamp it off once on scrap paper first!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and onto the inside of the card – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another couple of butterflies and bokeh dots on the front…

…and more of the Flowers for Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.  Hint:  there IS an up and a down on this paper.  Just sayin’! 😉

Et Voila!  I’ve been so caught up in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog that it’s easy to forget about some of the beautiful sets in the “big” catalog!  But…don’t be like me!  Beauty Abounds is just as gorgeous now as it was when it came out – and the coordinating Butterfly Beauty Die set is…stunning!

And don’t forget that you could get the amaze-balls Dandelions 3D Embossing Folder for FREE – plus DOUBLE Peppermints right now during my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine Ordering Special!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Video Tutorial Sneak Peek and…a fundraiser to Support Iowa!

So – good morning.  Hope you’ve got a good weekend on the way to you!  Guess what?  It’s gonna rain here! Shocker.  Wish I could send some of that to the west coast!

I’ve got a fun card to share with you this evening on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  I’ll be live at 7pm eastern time and we’re going to do a little embossing!  Take a sneaky peek!

It’s fun – and it’s a good masculine card (which we always have some trouble coming up with, don’t we??) that I think you’re going to like!

So – hope you can join me.  Tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Now – if you watch the news at all – it is filled with the wild weather across this country.  Fire storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, derechos, droughts, floods – it’s fairly endless.

One of the huge events – that really did NOT get a lot of attention! – is the derecho that hit Iowa a couple of weeks ago.   If you have seen any videos of it – it truly looked like a hurricane had hit Iowa.  Uhm – because it totally had – winds in the 100+mph range (that’s Cat 2 territory, folks!)  With no warning to speak of.  To say it was devastating is a bit of an understatement! 🙁

Imagine that same wind rolling across corn and soybean fields – destroying crops and infrastructure.

Why do I care?  Well, I’ve got friends thru Stampin’ Up! that live in Iowa (fortunately safe!).  One of them, who is also my team mate – gifted me with a subscription to Our Iowa Magazine last year.  She was trying to convince me of the beauty of her “fly-over state”!  Well – I read that magazine and…was convinced!  No – STILL not going to move there, cuz…SNOW!! 😉

Why should we care?  As a result of the storm, at least 43% of the corn and soybeans grown in the state were lost.  Which will be seen in the supermarkets where you and I get our food!  But beyond all that – many in that state are hurting, have lost their homes, schools and businesses and some are still without power (12 days after the storm and with daytime temps in the 90’s ). Many farm families lost everything and are left with a huge mess to clean up prior to planting next spring.  With so much destruction, they can really use our help!

I wish I’d thought of this on my own – and am a little ashamed to say that I did not.  So – when I saw Amy doing this – and thinking about the friends I have in and from Iowa – I decided that – even if it wasn’t my idea – I COULD get on the bandwagon to help!

There’s an organization in Cedar Rapids, IA, called the Iowa Giving Crew, a Cedar Rapids based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that’s helping to get power restored to those still waiting, is feeding those in need, provides 3 meals a day and is helping with the cleanup.  They’ve got a Facebook page that you can see here with photos and details about the help they’re providing.

I decided to follow Amy’s lead and set a goal of donating $500 to the Iowa Giving Crew.

How can you help me help them??

Place a Stampin’ Up! Order Or Donate Directly!

There are two ways you can help me to reach my goal:

I Oughta Be in Maui Stamps-N-Lingers Double Peppermint Ordering Special!

So – I think you’re picking up on the fact that I’ve been busier than a one-armed-paper-hanger this week, yeah?  And that busy-ness sorta let me forget about the fact that right about now I oughta be sitting on the beach sipping a Mai Tai.  Or some other suitably fruity adult beverage.

Amy reminded me.

Which made me sad.  And yes – a little pissy. 😉

Yep – thanks to CV19….we weren’t able to go this time around.  🙁

But – you’ve been totally awesome AGAIN this year and helped me earn the 2021 Inventive Trip!  Stampin’ Up! is giving all the folks who earned both trips an extended stay in Maui next year!!  Whoo-hoo!  Looking forward to spending a few extra days in paradise in about 10 months!  I think I also get DOUBLE adult beverages AND they have no calories.

I’m pretty sure!

So…I decided to make rum punch outta lemons…or something like that…and say a special thank you to ALL Y’ALL who helped me reach the point where I’d have something to MISS this year – and MORE to look forward to NEXT year!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

To that end…I’m offering up DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS starting today, thru the 12th (which is when I woulda been coming home!).
