Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks in Style for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.  All our blogs go live at the exact same time – regardless of where in the WORLD the hopper is located!   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

Each month we’ll have a theme for the hop – this month’s theme is All Things Crafty – Favorite Coloring Tools!  Favorite coloring tools…hmmm.  Well – my FAVORITE coloring tool is, actually, our wunnermus Designer Series Paper!  The colors are so amazing and perfectly coordinated for us – so they can be left to shine shine shine on a project!  And – once I’ve selected some wonderful paper – like the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on today’s card – I tend to gravitate to my Stampin’ Blends.  Which I used today to color my Ornate Style flower.  When I added a sentiment from Ornate Thanks, well…take a look-see!

The layout was inspired by Kerstin Kreis’ card in this week’s Global Design Project‘s Case the Designer challenge.

I started by double-matting a piece of the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on Terracotta Tile and Early Espresso to make the card front.

Using the Magnolia Memories Die set, I cut two large and two small leaves from Mossy Meadow card stock.  I adhered the leaves to Pear Pizzazz and to Old Olive card stock and then fussy cut the leaves.

I adhered the leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Next, I tied a large-ish bow from the Old Olive ribbon in the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the adorable daisy from Ornate Style in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I colored the leaf with my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combo.  I colored the flower with my Daffodil Delight Combo – then added some Mango Melody (with the Dark Stampin’ Blend) on the petals around the center of the flower.  The center itself is colored with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend.

Then I cut the image with an oval Stitched Shape Die and popped it over the leaves and bow with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Ornate Thanks sentiment in Terracotta Tile on Whisper White, then used a small Stitched So Sweetly die to cut it out – running it half-way thru the die cutting machine twice and moving the die to create a cut that’s long enough for the sentiment.  I used a Dimensional and some Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Finally I added a single Gilded Gem to the oval and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Terracotta Tile and a third in Old Olive onto a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the little daisy again in Tuxedo Black and colored it the same as the front of the card.  A Gilded Gem finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to double mat the panel on Terracotta Tile and Early Espresso, then into my Terracotta Tile card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Ornate Style daisy on the front…

…and more Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Ornate Garden Specialty DSP brings so much color and movement to this card, don’t you think?!  And it’s perfectly complemented by the Ornate Style flower – colored with my Stampin’ Blends – and the wonderful and versatile sentiments in the Ornate Thanks set.   I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts! And –  I know you know this – but…even though this set is in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – you can get it right NOW!! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Early Release Suite Now Available!

Happy Happy HAWWWMP Day!  And – Happy “Go-Live” Day to the new Ornate Garden Suite!!  Whoo-hoo!

I’ve been showing you lots of samples of this cool new suite – you know it’s an Early Release from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, right?  And it’s awesome!

I’ve got another card for you today, using the Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks stamp sets, a little of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

This fun layout is inspired by this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And the color palette is from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started with a panel of Whisper White.  I ran just the right side – about 1 1/2″ – thru the die cutting machine in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Paper Trimmer to cut a triangle of the gold-foil embossed Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – it’s about 1 1/2″ across at the top and 5 1/8″ long – cut on a diagonal to create a point.

I used my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Combo Packs and the Light Pumpkin Pie Blend to color the flowers.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

Then I matted the panel on Mango Melody.

Using Glue Dots on the back of the card front, I adhered two lengths of Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped one sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Terracotta Tile and a second sentiment in Pumpkin Pie.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, added a small Gilded Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a third sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Pumpkin Pie on a Whisper White panel.  In each corner, I added a flourish in Terracotta Tile.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Pumpkin Pie card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Terracotta Tile flourishes on the front…

…and more Blends-colored Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  SO many ways to put all the pieces, parts, images and sentiments together in this spectacular new Ornate Garden Suite!  From the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets, to the bundled Ornate Layers and Ornate Borders dies…and the gorgeous Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is stunning!  I hope you like and – are rushing to get yours ordered right now!

Here’s a quick video about this cool new Suite! 🙂03.03.20_TH_VIDEOSCREEN1_ORNATE_GARDEN_NA

In these chaotic and troubled times, I’m glad that we have our own ZEWS. Zombie Early Warning System.

Behold.  ZEWS Sentry – Deploy.

ZEWS 1 – in strategic position.

That locale was carefully selected by ZEWS 1 – it offers 180 degrees of overwatch of both the house and the barn.  The road behind him – an obvious ingress point for zombies – he covers with his cat-like hear-stuff-sneaking-up-behind-him senses.

He remains ever-vigilant.

His request for a ghillie-suit was obviously denied and he sort of sticks out.  But…stealth is not his weapon of choice.

Vocalizing the threat is his forte.

And a deep suspicion – which is good for a ZEWS Sentry.  Cuz Zombies are…everywhere.  And well disguised.

Maybe…

Definite possibility.

Is there any doubt??


Vigilance is key.  ZEWS 1 must remain alert at all times.  It’s in the code.

Wargaming is important, though.  Critical to think thru the steps if the hoard should lumber over the hill.  You KNOW they’d come from the back.

Zombies are pretty smart.

Not everyone knows that.

Wargaming COULD be misconstrued for napping on duty.

It’s not.

Napping.

He’s deep in strategery-izing….

Stampin’ Up! Witty-Cisms Thoughtful Blooms 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 – it’s a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from Joanne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I pulled out some more of the pretty Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – coming soon on 1 April (and available in a limited-time special bundle from me!) and then added a little Witty-Cisms and….Thoughtful Blooms flowers, punched with the Small Bloom Punch.  These are both free Sale-A-Bration goodies – available thru 31 Mar.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge!  These are my very favorite challenges!! Go across – down – diagonal….join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

And I used the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the layout – I just flipped it a bit!

I started with some flower-dy paper (oh – I went down the far right column on the challenge!) for my card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sweet little chinchilla from Witty-Cisms.  I used the Stamparatus and the Marker-to-Rubber technique to stamp JUST the chinchilla in Early Espresso.  I colored him with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack, then cut him out with the next-to-largest circle Stitched Shapes die.

I went back to the Stamparatus and used the Marker-To-Rubber technique again to color and stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow and Terracotta Tile.  Then I fussy cut each word and edged the resulting pieces with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut chinchilla to the Ornate Garden panel with a little hanging over the left edge – then I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat.

I popped each fussy cut word on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I used Old Olive to stamp some Thoughtful Blooms branches and leaves above the chinchilla.  Using the Leaf Punch, I cut a couple of Mint Macaron leaves and one in Old Olive.  These I attached to the card front with Liquid Glue.

To make the Thoughtful Blooms flowers, I used Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink to stamp a variety on Whisper White.  The outline images are Terracotta Tile and the fills are Petal Pink!  Then I punched them all with the Small Bloom Punch.

Note: both these items are available right now as FREE Sale-A-Bration goodies – the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set with a $50 purchase and the Small Bloom Punch with a $100 purchase!


I adhered two of the flowers with Liquid Glue and then popped the middle flower up with a Dimensional.  A Champagne Rhinestone in the middle of each flower and two on the art circle finished off the card front!

On the inside, I stamped Happy Birthday (from the Witty-cisms stamp set) in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  Around it, I stamped some dots from Thoughtful Blooms in Petal Pink.  In the corner, I added more flowers, branches and leaves from Thoughtful Blooms in Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Terracotta Tile and Petal Pink.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Thoughtful Blooms florals on the front…

…and a little more Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Gotta love the punny little sentiments and cute images in the Witty-cisms stamp set (and the Stamparatus makes multiple-color-coloring easy peasy!!).  And I have to say that the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set AND that awesome Small Bloom Punch – are two of my very favorite things from the Sale-A-Bration offerings!  I assume you’ve got them both already – but if not…hurry and get them before Sale-A-Bration leaves us on 31 March!!  I hope you like!

I’d like to say we’re done mixing dirt.

I know we’re out of Vermiculite so…we’re done for a minute! 😉

Fortunately, Finn was supervising.

Welll…for a bit.

I mean – it was HOT for a fur-dog!

He tried to get on the golf cart to rest, but his mom had left her drink right in the WAY.

Not very comfortable….

Oopsie… what bottle?!?

Ahhh – THAT’s better!!

Silly mom.

There’s a legend known only to ponies – of a pasture filled end to end and side to side with the greenest grass known to pony-kind.

They know it exists – they can see it every day – but…alas and alack, there is fence all around.

They call it…The Promised Land.

Every day they gaze longingly and chuckle piteously to the evil humans who rule The Promised Land.

They see deer – VERMIN! – eating the luscious goodness.

And they despair of ever reaching their dream.

Until, one day, one of the humans takes pity on the obviously-starving ponies.

And the gates to The Promised Land swung open…

You want us to…come in?!?

Uhm….

Stampin’ Up! Stylish Ornate Garden Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

The sketch this week was pretty wide open, so I figured I’d give you another want-it-whetter from the new Early Release Ornate Garden Suite!  I used the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets, a little Ornate Garden Specialty DSP and….my new favorite die set – Stitched So Sweetly.  Take a look see:

And here’s that sketch – maybe you’ll want to use it to jump-start your creative mojo!

Although it’s not an Easter card, I used the color palette from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

I started with some Old Olive paper (the foiled design) from the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP.  Across the bottom I adhered a strip of non-foiled Old Olive paper with Liquid Glue.  Across the seam, using a little SNAIL and a couple of Glue Dots on the back, I ran a length of Terracotta Tile (I sort of interpreted that brownish color in the palette as Terracotta Tile!) ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

I matted the whole thing on Pumpkin Pie to make the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the large floral image from the Ornate Style stamp set.

I used my Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs to color all the flowers except the two daisies.  Those I colored with my Pumpkin Pie Watercolor Pencil.

I added a large sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Pumpkin Pie and the smaller sentiment in Terracotta Tile.  Then I cut the image and sentiment with the largest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly die set.

In the corner, I added a flourish from Ornate Style in Old Olive.  Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a double length simple bow from the Terracotta Tile ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I added some Pumpkin Pie gems from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Night of Navy flowers.  A blue gem from the same Rhinestone pack finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a Pumpkin Pie-matted strip of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped a couple more Old Olive flourishes, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got two more Old Olive flourishes on the front…

…and more of the foiled Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Ornate Garden Suite is coming SOON – like…next week!  The anchoring bundles – Ornate Style (with the bundled Ornate Layers Die set) and Ornate Thanks (bundled with Ornate Borders) are wonderful and perfectly complement the coordinating Ornate Garden Specialty DSP!  Isn’t it exciting to be able to play with a 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Suite EARLY!?

I hope you like and are making plans to add the whole suite to your stash!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Ornate Garden Treat Basket – with Video Tutorial!

Good Friday morning, y’all!!  I feel obligated to say….stop touching your face and wash your hands.

There.  Public Service Announcement….DONE!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday –  I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I got the idea for this sweet treat basket from my friend Sue Prather – who gave all of us one last weekend at our Spring STAMPede event!

This is so easy. 🙂

Where Sue used some Best Dressed DSP, I used some of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP – from the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite (which y’all can get on 1 April – or NOW if you decide to join the team).  I decorated mine with sweet Daisy Lane flowers.  Take a look-see:

With my Simply Scored board, I scored at 2″ and 4″ on one side of the 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP – rotated the paper 90 degrees (doesn’t matter which way) – and scored again at 2″ and 4″.

Next, I used my Paper Snips to cut from the edge of the paper to the crossing score line.  I did that on two opposing sides.  As shown by the dotted lines below.

When I was done snip-snipping, my paper looked like this:

I placed Tear-and-Tape Adhesive on the inside of the DSP on opposite corners…

Then I removed the tape and brought the tips of the outside corners together – tucking the center square panel on the inside.

The end result…

I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the inside flap so that it would help to make everything more secure and tidier! 🙂

Ready to decorate!

I used a length (about 7 1/2″) of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim (from the Tropical Oasis Suite) for the handle – using a craft stapler to adhere it on the inside of the basket at the points.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped two each of the large and small daisies from the Daisy Lane set in Daffodil Delight.  Then I punched them with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.

 

With the Leaf Punch, I punched three Mint Macaron and three Old Olive leaves.  I creased each little leaf with my fingers and adhered three each on both sides of the basket with Liquid Glue.

I popped the small daisies atop the large daisies with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I adhered them over the top of the leaves with Liquid Glue.

A Perennial Essence Flower Center in the middle of each daisy finished off my Spring Baskets!

Et Voila!  These little baskets are so cute and so easy and…how many ways can you think of to use them?  Mother’s Day?  Easter Brunch?  May Day?  Baby Shower?  Bridal Shower?  Think of all the gorgeous papers we have to choose from and the myriad of decorative options we’ve got with Stampin’ UP!  The Daisy Lane and two Daisy Punches are spot-on-perfect for any and everything Spring-y!!  And…the paper.  The Ornate Garden Specialty DSP is gorgeous!!  I hope you like – and will give these a try right now!!

Yesterday we started hardening the transplants.

Toted all the little trays and water-bottle “pots” to just outside the garage door for a little while in the afternoon.  Gotta toughen up the plants in preparation for going in the beds!!

And I cut some daffodils (and a couple of tulip tree flowers!!)

It’s just the best time of year, isn’t it?!?

Finn supervised from the golf-cart.

That’s kind of his jam.  Supervising.

If he had actual hands – not adorable paw-hands, he’d be holding a coffee cup in one hand and have the other in his pocket in the ways of site supervisors the world over.

No offense to site supervisors! 😉
