Stampin’ Up! Gourd Goodness and Pumpkin Leaves for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Giving Thanks!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!  

I decided to go straight up Fall festival with my card, using the Gourd Goodness stamp set and…a few goodies from my October Paper Pumpkin!  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Painted Autumn DSP, that I Fast Fuse’d to a Cajun Craze mat for the card front.  I wrapped a long length of Linen Thread around the card front three times, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I used a Glue Dot to pull the three strands together – right about under the bow on the card.

Next, I raided the leftover pieces of my October Paper Pumpkin kit and adhered two pretty Gold leaves to the card front.  Don’t have this kit?  You can cut some leaves from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits from Gold Foil and adhere them with some Liquid Glue. 🙂

Using the two-step pumpkin image in the Gourd Goodness stamp set – I stamped the first image in Peekaboo Peach on Very Vanilla.  Over the top, I stamped the second image in Pumpkin Pie.  The stems – also two-step – are stamped in Garden Green ink.  Then I fussy cut them.

I also cut a Cajun Craze pumpkin from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits – and adhered it to another piece of Painted Autumn DSP with Liquid Glue.  Then I fussy cut that, too.

I built up my collage with the Patterned Pumpkin pumpkin adhered with Liquid Glue, popped the Gourd Goodness pumpkins on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then nestled a couple more leaves from the Paper Pumpkin kit in with Liquid Glue.  The final touch is a little Corrugated Elements heart!

My sentiment, from Gourd Goodness, is stamped in Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla and then punched with the Pretty Label Punch.  I used my Peekaboo Peach Stampin’ Write Marker to add faux stitches and then adhered it with Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I made a Linen Thread multi-loop bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Over the center, I stuck a small Gold Faceted Gem and the card front was done!

On the inside, I simply added another of the Paper Pumpkin gold leaves to a Very Vanilla panel.  I would love to be able to buy sheets of these beautiful leaves (hello, Stampin’ Up!?).

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Peekaboo Peach card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another gold leaf on the front…

…and another bit of Painted Autumn DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Fall-on-a card….the perfect ode to plenty and thankfulness!  All from the Gourd Goodness stamp set, a Patterned Pumpkin die cut and a little bit of Paper Pumpkin parts!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Patterned Pumpkin Label

Mornin’, y’all!  Well – here ’tis.  The day before the big exodus to Utah!  I’m about to switch to “go” mode – that moment when my brain stops fighting it and just decides to do it and get ‘er done.

Any….second…now…

Well.  Maybe not quite yet.  Soon, though, I’m sure! 🙂

Had a “fun” day yesterday – our extra freezer decided it was time to call it a day.  So – big shuffle of frozen food to the other freezer spaces.  Did use the opportunity to get rid of those things no longer identifiable.  Or so freezer burned that…yea, unidentifiable.  So that happened.  Our neighbor is a refrigeration guy so he came and looked at it – told us we should replace the compressor and keep this one (it’s 20 years old).  Said the new ones are….problematic.  So that’s what we’ll do!  

Or – Wayne will do it next week.

My project for today is another Fall-themed card using the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits and some Painted Autumn DSP.  With a little Labels to Love sentiment thrown in for good measure.  Take a look-see:

The layout is inspired by the sketch at the MFT Card Challenge.

And the color palette hails from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of the Painted Autumn DSP and I matted it on Soft Sky for the card front.  Then there’s a strip of Very Vanilla on Soft Sky adhered with Liquid Glue and I wrapped a piece of Peekaboo Peach 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

Last up is another design from the Painted Autumn, also on Soft Sky, that I popped over the Very Vanilla strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, from Labels to Love, is stamped on Very Vanilla.  I used my Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp directly.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelit and adhered it with Liquid Glue and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

I fussy cut a trio of pumpkins from a piece of the Painted Autumn DSP and used my Early Espresso Marker to edge it – that helps to give it a little “substance”.  I used the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits to cut a large pumpkin in Cajun Craze, a couple of Garden Green Leaves, one Soft Sky leaf and a couple of Peekaboo Peach tendrils.

I used Liquid Glue to add the various elements – topping them all off with the fussy cut pumpkins, which are popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow with the Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Tip – take a little piece of thread (I used Gold Metallic Thread) and tie it around the ribbon that is laid across the card front.  When you “cinch” the knot down, it helps to create the illusion that the bow was actually tied from a single piece of ribbon.

I added a few Garden Green Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked up a pumpkin from the Pick a Pumpkin set in Peekaboo Peach, then used Tangerine Tango on a Sponge Dauber to add some depth around the edges.  I stamped it a second time on a Sticky note and cut it out as a mask.  Then I inked the smaller pumpkin in Peekaboo Peach and shaded it with Cajun Craze, then stamped it over the taller (and now masked) pumpkin.  I used my Early Espresso Marker to touch up the stems.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Soft Sky mat and into my Garden Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another couple of Pick a Pumpkin pumpkins on the front…

…and the envelope flap got some more of the Painted Autumn DSP.

Et Voila!  This Pick a Pumpkin bundle, with the matching Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits might well be one of my favorites in the entire Holiday Catalog!  I really love it – especially when paired up with the oh-so-gorgeous Painted Autumn DSP.  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Torn Corners Count My Blessings

Happy Tuesday!  Hoping that your week is going well.  Mine is…going.  Fast.  I’m going to look up and it’s going to be Saturday and I’ll be packing to go!  But I’m trying to consider that that just means it’s going to be closer to being over AND closer to seeing my friends (and the new Occasions catalog) at OnStage!!  And then…coming back home!

Yea.  That’s how I’m going to look at it.  Pull up my big girl panties and JUST DO IT!! 🙂

Today, though, let’s talk cards, shall we?  I made another card using the Count My Blessings stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Now – this isn’t my usual color scheme – I used them to play along with the Global Design Project challenge – but I keep forgetting that the deadline is in Australia time.  So…Tuesday there is Monday here and I keep missing it! 😦

The sketch, though, that inspired my layout comes from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge – straight down the right side!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and, using the leaf image in Count My Blessings, stamped all over it with Lemon Lime Twist ink.  

For my four layers with the rounded corners – I decided to tear the edges.  The bottom layer is Calypso Coral card stock.  Next up is a piece of Painted Autumn DSP – and I sponged the torn edges with a little more Lemon Lime Twist.  Then comes another piece of Painted Autumn DSP and finally, a piece of Whisper White.  I adhered each piece with Liquid Glue – and then trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer.  For the the last layer, the Whisper White panel, I stamped the Count My Blessings flower on before adhering it.

To stamp that flower, I used a couple of techniques I learned from Amy Koenders.  First I inked the stamp with Peekaboo Peach ink.  Then, I used a sponge dauber to add some Calypso Coral around the edges of the flower – giving it a little depth.  For the leaves, I used my Blender Pen to pick up the Peekaboo Peach ink – making way for the Lemon Lime Twist (the Blender Pen sort of works like an eraser!).  I added the Lemon Lime Twist by coloring them directly with my Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I “huffed” on the stamp and stamped it on my Whisper White panel.  And adhered it with the Liquid Glue.  Finally, I Fast Fuse’d the card front to a Lemon Lime Twist mat.

My sentiment, also from the Count My Blessing stamp set, is stamped on Whisper White in Calypso Coral ink.  I cut it out with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die and matted it on a Lemon Lime Twist scalloped oval, cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere them together and then popped them on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

I added a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped another of the Count My Blessings flower images in Lemon Lime Twist across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  Then I used my Peekaboo Peach Stampin’ Write Marker to dab color on each flower.  Finally, using the fine-tip side of my Calypso Coral Marker, I added just a touch of that to each flower, too.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Peekaboo Peach card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Count My Blessings flowers in Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral across the front…

…and a little more of the Painted Autumn DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  While this isn’t exactly my cup-o-tea in the colors department, it’s definitely a cheerful and fun card, yes?  And the Count My Blessings stamp set is certainly gorgeous, no if’s, and’s or but’s about it!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

Finn will, occasionally, stand up from his nap, stretch and come over to where I’m either working on the computer or at my stamping desk.

He stops in front of me, looking at me expectantly.

Sometimes it means he needs to go out.

More often – if means….Hug.

And I usually accommodate him – cuz…who doesn’t appreciate a good fur-hug in the middle of a stressful day?

Not easy to take a selfie with 65 pounds of wiggly Aussie half in and half out of your lap!

Consider yourself hugged! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Labels to Love

Mornin’ y’all!  Getting ready for your week?  Me, too.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thanks so much for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, and you want to watch…here’s a link to it on YouTube.  Enjoy!

For this card, I used the Painted Harvest stamp set and combined it with the super-versatile and pretty Labels to Love stamp set.  Plus a few other goodies.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this card come from the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

I started by Fast Fuse’ing a large piece of the Painted Autumn DSP to a Peekaboo Peach mat for the card front and two smaller pieces for the middle DSP panels, which I adhered with a little Liquid Glue.

The middle panel is a piece of Very Vanilla, matted on Peekaboo Peach card stock and then embossed in the Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I made the Painted Harvest sunflower by stamping the larger image in Peekaboo Peach – twice (re-inking between stamps) – on a piece of Very Vanilla.  Then I added the middle image – in stamped off once Cajun Craze.  And I fussy cut it.

The leaves are stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green – the solid image in Lemon Lime Twist and the veins in Garden Green.  I made three of them, punching them out with the Leaf Punch that’s a part of this wonderful Painted Harvest bundle.

I adhered the leaves with a little Liquid Glue and a couple of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and then the flower with Liquid Glue to the embossed panel.  

Then I stamped the sentiment from Labels to Love in Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla and cut it with a small Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I matted it on a scalloped Peekaboo Peach mat, cut with the Layering Circles Framelits die, added loops of Copper Metallic Thread behind it, and then popped it on the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a bow with a length of Linen Thread and two lengths of Copper Metallic Thread and adhered it with a little dab of Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Peekaboo Peach and stamped-off-once Cajun Craze in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  I added a center in Lemon Lime Twist and Garden Green and added some Garden Green dots in the middle with the little dots image from the set.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a third Painted Harvest sunflower on the front…

…and I added some more of the Painted Autumn DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this little Labels to Love stamp set – it gives you so many occasions options – from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day.  And – of course  – Painted Autumn.  Don’t guess I really have to say much about it wonderfulness!  You already know!  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

Ladies – and gentlemen if you’re out there! – may I introduce to you – for the first time…

DN4682060  AKA (or should I say AKC?!) Finneus Deatherage

Yes – it’s true.  He’s an “official” dog now.  With a Dog Number and everything!

Somehow I thought that once he was “official” – he’d be a little less goofy!

But no.  He still carries around bunches of leaves and twigs.  Just cuz he…likes how they taste?

Nope – becoming “official” hasn’t gone to his head at all! Still the same little sweet, unpretentious kid!  🙂

Finn-Fan Fix  

Yoghurt is pretty popular in our house.

I like it.  Wayne likes it.  The cats like it – mostly Leo.

Finn likes it!  He licks every single nook and cranny (after waiting not-so-patiently for Leo to decide if he wants any or if this isn’t one of the preferred flavors).

Then he picks it up and prepares to destroy the tub.

Which is our cue to retrieve it before it’s shredded up and all over the house!

Oh yea – he cares not one whit what flavor it is.  He’s pretty undiscerning….

Stampin’ Up! Pumpkin Cat-oween for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Knew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Halloween!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see who went spooky and who went nice, okay?  

I decided to use the Cat Punch and a few pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits to make a sorta sweet and not-at-all spooky card.  Take a look-see:  

I played along with a couple of sketches on this one.  

The first, from Sunday Stamps, kind of loosely inspired my color choices:  

My layout comes from the folks at the TGIF Challenge.  

I started with a piece of paper from the Painted Autumn DSP and Fast Fuse’d it to a Night of Navy mat.  Then I cut a Delicate White Doily in half and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue – leaving space between the halves so the doilies would peek out from my center panel.  

Next up,  I cut the little cross-shapes out of the corner of a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, using the die in the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.  To make my background, I used some Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie inks to stamp the leaves images from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set, and added the sentiment from Spooky Cat in Night of Navy.  The little speckles and splotches around the sentiment are actually the bubbles rising from the Spooky Cat beakers – stamped in Soft Sky!  Then I Fast Fuse’d it onto a Night of Navy mat and popped it over the doilies with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now the cat.  When I first started making a card for the hop, I thought I wanted to play with the Just Us Girls challenge which asked for Watercolor Block stamping.  So I inked up one of my acrylic blocks with Pumpkin Pie ink, spritzed it with water using my Mister, and stamped it down on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  

And then I changed my mind and went another direction.  Specifically in the direction of this card!  

But I had that paper…and I needed a cat.  So…out came the Cat Punch and all of a sudden – calico kitty!  I added a Night of Navy face with the little stamp in the Spooky Cat stamp set and adhered her to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then is was time for the pumpkins.  I cut a large pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie – and adhered it to some Peekaboo Peach card stock then fussy cut the excess – and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I cut a star-strewn Cajun Craze pumpkin and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally – I stamped a Soft Sky pumpkin on Very Vanilla, added a Jack O’Lantern face in Night of Navy and cut it out with the die in the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits.  He’s added with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and a little Liquid Glue – and finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze leaf from Pick a Pumpkin on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I added a strip of the Painted Autumn DSP which I’d matted on Night of Navy.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelop got a Soft Sky Pick a Pumpkin pumpkin – complete with Night of Navy face.  Then I cut a quick sticky note mask and covered the pumpkin, then stamped a Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze leaf over the top…

…and I added another piece of Painted Autumn DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m not sure, but…this may be a personal record for me for making Halloween Cards!  But – if you’re going to make them, then it makes sense to use uber-cute stamp sets and Thinlits like you’ll find in the Pick A Pumpkin bundle.  And don’t even get me started on the Spooky Cat bundle – love love love!!  Hope you like!

Scroll on down for the card cuts and all the products you’ll need to make this one for yourself!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been doing!  

NOTE:  Several of us had Irma roll through our areas and knock out power so there may be a few links that aren’t working quite right if you run through the hop early. Hopefully there won’t be any hiccups, but please be patient with us if there are. We’ll get them fixed just as quickly as we can! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Gather Together

Good mornin’, y’all!  Hope this finds you well – and safe (particularly if you’re in the path of Harvey and dealing with the ongoing havoc he wrought – and is wreaking!).

Folks are snapping up my Painted Autumn bundles, but today I want to give the rest of you a little nudge-nudge.  So I made a card to help convince you that you need one of these bundles! I’ll just let the Painted Harvest stamp set, Leaf Punch and Painted Autumn DSP do the persuading, shall I?  Take a look-see:

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

While I took all the color palette inspiration from the Suite itself, I let the fine folks at CAS(E) This Sketch lend me an assist on the layout.

Screen Shot 2017-08-28 at 12.30.46

I started with some Crumb Cake card stock and then inked up the flower images in the Painted Harvest stamp set, also in Crumb Cake.  I stamped the images – both of them, remember, this is two step! – all across the panel.  When I stamped the first image (the less-defined, larger flower), I stamped it multiple times for each flower, rotating it a little with each stamp.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 1I added the little three-dot image a couple of times in the middle – sunflower seeds, I’m betting! – and then double matted the panel.  First on an Early Espresso mat and then on Garden Green.

My middle panel is a piece of the Painted Autumn DSP, matted on Early Espresso and Garden Green, then Fast Fuse’d to the card front.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

I adhered a short strip of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the middle panel with Liquid Glue.  

For the leaves, I stamped the leaf images (both of them) in Garden Green on Garden Green card stock, punched them out with the Leaf Punch, and creased each leaf.  Then I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I fussy cut a couple of flowers from the Painted Autumn DSP and adhered the larger one with Liquid Glue.  The smaller flower I popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

The sentiment, from Painted Harvest, is stamped in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake card stock.  I inked and stamped the phrases and the ampersand separately, then snipped them out.  The edges are colored with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I adhered them to the flowers with Liquid Glue.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 8

I made a multi-loop bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot, then tied a smaller bow from Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered it over the Linen Thread Bow.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another Painted Harvest flower using Crushed Curry, on a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the first image several times, rotating it for each stamp.  Then I came back and repeated it with the second image – again multiple times, and rotating the stamp.  The middle is stamped in Crumb Cake – I did it twice, rotating between stamps.  Then I added “sunflower seeds” with the three-dot image in Crumb Cake.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

I matted the panel on Early Espresso and Garden Green and then Fast Fuse’d it into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, added the card front with more Fast Fuse, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Painted Harvest flower in Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake on the front…

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

…and some more of the Painted Autumn DSP on the envelope flap.

Painted Harvest Gather Together - Stamps-N-Lingers 8

Et Voila!  I love this Suite so much – that stamped flower is exquisite and the designer paper complements it perfectly.  It can be fresh and bright and summery or it can go vintage-antique-y.  So many possibilities!  I hope you like.

Read on for all the details in the bundles – and grab the one you need before these special prices go away on Thursday afternoon!!

Finn-Fan Fix  

I mentioned on my video the other night that Finn and I had gone over for a playdate with his sister, Scout.

He’d go do that every day, if he could.  Or…twelve times a day!

They’d both end up pretty danged fit if he did.  And have no excess energy for shenanigans!

Y’all – they must have run 25 miles.  In a circle around the lawn chairs we were all sitting in.  If they weren’t running, they were wrestling…

Every once in a while, they’d flop on the ground for a minute or two to catch their breath.

IMG_9610

And at one point, Finn went to the big water bowl to take a self-imposed timeout.  A little guy-time.  Contemplate Maybelle-the-cow and get his breath back.  And have a little sip of water.  

IMG_9609

Possibly ambush his sister if she decided she needed a drink, too.

IMG_9612

They had a bang-up good time!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! This Little Piggy Video Sneak Peek

‘Sup, y’all!?  Hope you’re enjoying your weekend.  If you’ve been battling with Harvey, know that you’re all in my prayers.  Stay safe.

I know you know that this Sunday morning post is typically a sneak peek of the card we’ll do tonight on my Facebook Live video!

And today is no exception.  I feel pretty confident that you can figure out what stamp set we’ll be using – if the title of the post didn’t give it away.  This Little Piggy is just too cute – and the card we’re going to do is headed to a friend of mine’s daughter.  Who loves pigs.  And has also been thru the wringer these past few days, weeks and months.  I hope this card will bring her a smile!  Take a look-see:

This Little Piggy Went Swimmng - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

Bundle #2:  The Painted Autumn Basic – this one’s for you if you already have all the ink pads that you need to make gorgeous Fall cards.  This one is $76 and still gets free shipping and tax and a free goody!  The total cost if you bought them separately would be around $100.

Painted Autumn Basic Bundle

Here’s what’s included in the $76 Basic Bundle:

  • Painted Harvest Bundle (stamp and Leaf Punch) – this is a photopolymer stamp set
  • Painted Autumn DSP Pack
  • Painted Autumn Card Stock Pack
  • 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon
  • Touches of Nature Elements Pack
  • Very Vanilla Note Cards And Envelopes Pack
  • Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine  
  • FREE Jute Twine OR Black Rhinestone Jewels

So – seems like a pretty good deal, huh?  

As a further enticement – the September Online Tutorial (I’ll send this tutorial to you in September when you order either bundle) features this wonderful new suite.  And I promise you’re going to want to have the whole shootin’ match on hand so you can make those projects.  

Need more enticement?  How about Double Peppermint Points for everyone who orders one of these bundles? So…do the math – that’s 8 peppermints for the Deluxe (yes, I’ll round up a little on this bigger bundle!) and 6 for the Basic.  Remember, when you collect 16 peppermints, you’ll get a free $40 gift from me! 🙂

Do you like turnips?

We like turnip greens with some turnip in them.

We probably won’t ever be found eating straight up turnips.

It’s just not something we’d do.

If you’re a mashed turnip lover…I’m sorry.  To each his own, I suppose.

We grew a bed’s worth of turnips – and harvested them on Saturday morning.  To start the cleaning process, we dumped them all in an old trough and filled it with water.

IMG_4424

Well.  Finn thought that was the bomb.

Or the…bob.

As in bobbing for turnips….

When we found a bad turnip – we’d pull the greens off and toss the turnip.

Which he promptly chased and brought back.  Kinda defeating the purpose, heh??

A Stamps-N-Lingers Painted Autumn Bundle Flash Sale and Ordering Special

Good mornin’, y’all!  I don’t have a new card for you today – I’ve got something even better!  

If you’ve been following along, you’ve seen me do several cards using all or some of the most wondrous Painted Autumn suite of goodies – the centerpiece of which is the Painted Harvest Stamp Set with it’s pretty sentiments and the matching Leaf Punch.  It’s all accented by the gorgeous Painted Autumn DSP.

Look around Pinterest – and you’ll see even more marvelous samples!  I think it’s going to be the “it” suite when the catty goes live on 1 Sept.  You’re going to want everything in the suite!

When the Annual Catalog was released earlier this year, I offered a couple of fun 2017-2019 In Color bundles.  Those were really well received – and I’ve had folks ask me if I was going to do anything similar for the Holiday Catalog.

Well – the answer is…yes!  And they’ll feature the Painted Autumn Suite and coordinating goodies.

I’ve designed two great possible bundles for you.  Check them out!

Bundle #1:  The Painted Autumn Deluxe – everything you need to start making cards from the minute it arrives at your door.  This bundle is $99 and includes free shipping (I can only ship to the US, folks!), free tax and a free goody!  Buying it all separately (including shipping, tax and your Free Goody!) would be about $125 (sorta depends on how much you’d give Uncle Sam!!).

Painted Autumn Deluxe Bundle

Here’s what’s included in the $99 Deluxe Bundle:

  • Painted Harvest Bundle (stamp and Leaf Punch) – this is a photopolymer stamp set
  • Painted Autumn DSP Pack
  • Four “Fall-flavored” Classic Stamp Pads (Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso and Garden Green)
  • Painted Autumn Card Stock Pack
  • 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon
  • Touches of Nature Elements Pack
  • Very Vanilla Note Cards And Envelopes Pack
  • Crushed Curry Solid Baker’s Twine

Stampin’ Up! Pick A Pumpkin Labels to Love Sneak Peek

Happy Friday, y’all!  Hope your week went well and that you’re fixin’ to have a great weekend.  Big deal happening on Monday – anyone make special travel plans to witness it?  We’re pretty close to the path – it crosses the north end of GA.  So, I suspect it’ll get dark here.  

I just hope the aliens are more like ET and less like the dudes in Independence Day.

Just sayin’!

My card for today took some inspiration from a sample in the 2017 Holiday catalog and is a sneak peek of a fun little set called Pick a Pumpkin.  It’s bundled with a really cool set called the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits dies.  I used a sentiment from the Labels to Love stamp set (also in the new catty).  Take a look-see:

Pick a Pumpkin Labels to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

The rather unusual layout is a result of this week’s sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

Screen Shot 2017-08-17 at 17.35.00

And I also played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge.  I went down the right side.  And across the bottom (with “Pumpkin” as the “free” space!) – I’m an over-achiever!

Screen Shot 2017-08-17 at 17.34.00

I started out with a panel of Crushed Curry and embossed it in the Layered Petals Dynamic TIEF.  Hint:  When you emboss your card stock, start with a panel a little bigger than you actually need.  Perhaps you’ve noticed card stock seems to shrink when you dry-emboss it?  It’s cuz you’re smooshing up the fibers.  So – emboss it and then trim it down to size.

You’re welcome.

I Fast Fuse’d that to a Cajun Craze mat.

Pick a Pumpkin Labels to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

For my angled art work, I started with a piece of Danson 90lb Cold-Pressed Watercolor Paper – about the size of a regular A2 card front.  Using my Aqua Painter, I did a quick wash in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie, picking up the ink from the lid of my ink pads.

I cut the panel down to size – sort of arbitrarily picking my angles and using my Stampin’ Trimmer.  I laid it over a piece of Cajun Craze, and cut it down as well.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the watercolor paper to the mat.

Pick a Pumpkin Labels to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

I used the splatter image in the Timeless Textures stamp set to add Pumpkin Pie splatters all over the panel.  And then I got busy!

Using the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits, I cut a large pumpkin from Peekaboo Peach card stock, several leaves and tendrils in Vellum card stock, a couple in Copper Foil, a tendril in Old Olive card stock, and a few little bits and pieces that come out of one of the pumpkin dies.

I also stamped one pumpkin from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Very Vanilla and cut it with the matching die.  An Old Olive branch of leaves seemed like a grand idea, too!

Version 2

I stamped a couple of leaves images from Pick a Pumpkin in Early Espresso directly on the watercolor panel.  To start my collage, I stuck a Glue Dot to the panel and adhered several loops of Copper Metallic Thread.  Then I started building the remainder of the elements with Liquid Glue.  As you can see, I also added a few wooden Touches of Nature Elements.  I added the stamped pumpkin with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Pick a Pumpkin Labels to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

The sentiment is from the Labels to Love stamp set.  I colored just the words of the sentiment with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped it on Very Vanilla.  Then I cut it out with a die from the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits.  I edged it with my Pumpkin Pie Marker and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I cut the star-filled pumpkin die from Patterned Pumpkins from the corner of a Very Vanilla panel and edged it with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker.  I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and then added the pumpkin back in with a little Liquid Glue.

Pick a Pumpkin Labels to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

I Fast Fuse’d the panel into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I stamped a smaller Pick a Pumpkin pumpkin in Cajun Craze – then covered it with a sticky note mask and stamped the larger pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie…

…and I added an appropriate-feeling piece of paper from the Painted Autumn DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  While it may not be exactly “clean and fresh-lined” (LOL!) – I really love how the collage turned out.  Hope you like!

The Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits die set is just so cool – chock full of dies just begging to be clustered and collage-i-fied.  I know you’re going to want this bundle, y’all!!

Finn-Fan Fix  

Y’all – I have a very smart little dog.  I mean…seriously.

How do I know this?

Cuz…he likes his AC and his fan – just like his mom.

And his mom is smart.  

I learned this in Logic Class:

Mom is Smart. (A=C)

Finn is like Mom. (B=A)

Therefore, Finn is Smart. (B=C)

Logic.  Plain and simple.

Check it.

IMG_9446

Over to the right side of the picture is a vent in the cabinet toe-kick.  An Air Conditioning vent.  You can’t see it – but all his little hairs are just a-blowing-in-the-breeze.

He goes out for a little while – then shows up at the back door to come in.  And heads to “his spot” to cool off right quick!

Sometimes his furry hind-end is a little too hot, so he aims it just right…

IMG_9455
And sometimes – across the “aisle” isn’t quite close enough and he has to get close-as-can-be.  To cool off even quicker.

IMG_9456

Like I said.  Smart boy! 🙂
