Stampin’ Up! Weather Together Rainbow

Hey y’all – it’s Tuesday, 2 Aug – and you know what that means, right??  Yup – today’s the day you can get the great new Thoughtful Branches stamp set and the matching Beautiful Branches Thinlits.  Get them separately – or better yet, get them as a bundle and save 10%.  AND – if you got those Bonus Days coupons last month – you can reduce the price even further! That’s right – it’s time to spend what you earned!  They expire at the end of August!! 🙂

You can also snag that other new stamp set – “I Stamped This” – a great set full of images that let everyone who gets one of your beautiful creations know that you made it with your very own hands – and a lot of love!

There’s more info – including pictures! – down below.

For today, though, I have a card that was a special request.  My friend needed another Get Well/Encouragement card – for a dog lover.  And a Labrador Retriever lover, more specifically!  So I pulled out a few fun Stampin’ Up! sets – My Hero, the new Weather Together bundle and the fun Over the Rainbow stamp set.  Then I added a non-SU! labrador stamp.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Wetlands and Guy Greetings for Father’s Day

11 June 16 UPDATE!  I just found out that this card was selected by the Design Team over at The Paper Players as A Cut Above.  Check it – and all the winners! – out right here! 🙂


Good morning, y’all!  How’s your week going?  I got some more veggies planted – before the rain came in! And – I named the goose.

Oh – might not have mentioned the goose?  Apparently, we’ve been adopted and granted the privilege of being the new home for a domestic goose.  He (she?) just showed up last Friday.  Might have come from the flock next door.  No clue.  He’s kinda pretty.  And he looks real nice tooling around the pond.

Did you know they swim with their little web legs out behind them?  I always figured – you know, all those times I considered how geese might swim – that they would have their legs under them.  But they don’t!  His little orange legs just stick right out behind him!  It’s kind of cool.

So – since he seems to be planning to stick around for a minute – he sort of likes the scoop of cracked corn he gets every evening (yes, we’re suckers/saps/soft-touches/marshamallows)….I figured I’d name him.

Duck Duck.

As in Duck Duck….Goose!


Anywho – Duck Duck helped inspire me for today’s card.  I pulled out the Wetlands stamp set – which features a goose – and added a little swath from the Over the Rainbow set.  Since it’s a Father’s Day card – I grabbed a sentiment from Guy Greetings.  Just made sense.  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! Shamrocks Over the Rainbow for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Maidin mhaith,  y’all – it’s Thursday and that means it’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop Day!  And it’s also St. Patrick’s Day so I thought it would be good to give you an Irish greeting.  Just so you know, that was “Good Morning, y’all”.  Turns out there’s not really a translation for “y’all”! 😉

This week at the Blog Hop, we all worked on a sketch for you!  I hope that you’ll check out all the other ladies’ offerings.  It’s always fun to see how we all interpret the sketch.


I decided that, since it’s St. Patrick’s Day and all that, I’d bring you a little something with Shamrocks!  Now, you’re probably asking yourself….”Self, why are Shamrocks associated with Ireland??”  Well, perhaps this poem will help you….

Oh The Shamrock

Through Erin’s Isle,
To sport awhile,
As Love and Valor wander’d
With Wit, the sprite,
Whose quiver bright
A thousand arrows squander’d.
Where’er they pass,
A triple grass
Shoots up, with dew-drops streaming,
As softly green
As emeralds seen
Through purest crystal gleaming.
Oh the Shamrock, the green immortal Shamrock!
Chosen leaf
Of Bard and Chief,
Old Erin’s native Shamrock!

Did that help?  Well, never mind.  Anywho – I combined some “shamrocks” with the Over the Rainbow stamp set – cuz, you know, pots of gold and leprechauns and all that!  Take a look-see:

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:
