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.

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.

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…

…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.

They had a bang-up good time!! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix  

 

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!

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…

Pick a Pumpkin Labels to Love - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

…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.

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.

Like I said.  Smart boy! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope the week is going well for you – today I got signed up for OnStage in November!  Whoo-hoo!  And Amy and Jari and Julie and Beth are all going, too.  It’s going to be so much fun!!  And it’s in Salt Lake City – where I’ll already be (sort of) for work!  Timing is everything!

So today’s card uses another new stamp set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  It’s called Count My Blessings – and has beautiful floral images and two sentiments printed in beautiful fonts.  I used it with some Wood Textures DSP and the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.  Take a look-see:

Count My Blessings Thinking of You - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

My layout was inspired by the sketch at TGIF Challenges.

Screen Shot 2017-08-15 at 19.31.58

And the color palette is from this week’s Sunday Stamps color challenge.

Screen Shot 2017-08-15 at 19.31.18

I used Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, and Flirty Flamingo!

I started with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and I stamped it all over with the leaves image from the Count My Blessings stamp set (coming on 1 Sept) in Lemon Lime Twist.  Then I ran the panel thru the Big Shot in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and matted it on Daffodil Delight.

Count My Blessings Thinking of You - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

Next up is the ribbon treatment.  I laid down a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive and then added folds of the Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon.  I used a few Glue Dots to keep some of the more…recalcitrant folds where they belonged!

My art is a piece of Shimmery White card stock.  I heat embossed the flower image from Count My Blessings in Champagne Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Wait.

What?!?  Champagne Embossing Powder?

Well – sort of.  I took a tip from Shawn de Oliveira and made a one-to-one mix of Gold and Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I think it’s pretty darned close! 🙂

Once they’d cooled, I used my Blender Pens to color the flowers – first in Blushing Bride and then I added shadow accents with Flirty Flamingo.  I used Daffodil Delight for the leaves, then added some touches of Lemon Lime Twist.

Count My Blessings Thinking of You - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

I matted the panel on Daffodil Delight.  For the smaller strip, I cut a piece of Calypso Coral card stock, embossed it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and then adhered it to the back of the art panel.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered it on the card front.

The sentiment, from Count My Blessings, is stamped in Calypso Coral on Whisper White.  I edged it with my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Marker and matted it on Daffodil Delight.  Then I added it to the card front, with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.

Count My Blessings Thinking of You - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added another “Champagne” heat embossed floral from Count My Blessings to a Shimmery White panel.  And colored it like I’d done the flowers on the front.  I also added a few more Pearl Basic Jewels.

Count My Blessings Thinking of You - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

I Fast Fuse’d the panel on Daffodil Delight and into my Calypso Coral card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a final “Champagne” heat embossed and colored flower from Count My Blessings on the front…

Count My Blessings Thinking of You - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

…and more of the Wood Textures DSP on the envelope flap.  I even added more of the Lemon Lime Twist leaves from Count My Blessings.

Count My Blessings Thinking of You - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

Et Voila!  I love this little set – and I think it’s one that you may scoot right by in the catalog.  It’s not terribly flashy – but it’s gorgeous.  I mean – look at that font!  Beautiful!  I hope you like – and Count Your Blessings will make its way on to your wish list! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix  

So – remember the dog that wouldn’t eat fish yesterday?

Remember what I said about him and fish?

Well – I watched him sit in the “circle of begging” around Wayne this evening.  It went Katy – Finn – Leo.  All wanting a bite of Salmon.

Which – the last time I checked – is…FISH??

Yes.  Yes it is.

Later – we tossed the fish skins over the fence at the back of the property.  He snuck under and ate them.

Again.  FISH!

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Kitty Cat Punch

Mornin’, y’all!  Making our way thru the week – it’s practically the weekend again!

Not…

For today’s card, I played along with this week’s Global Design Project challenge – which was a CASE The Designer challenge.

Screen Shot 2017-08-14 at 18.54.46

And we even got to pick which designer to CASE.  I selected this card from Shawn de Oliveira.

Screen Shot 2017-08-14 at 18.54.54

I did change it up a little, but I kept many of the same elements.  I’ve been wanting to use the new Cat Punch (coming on 1 Sept!), so I used him over some Painted Autumn DSP.  Take a look-see:

Pretty Kitty Cat Punch - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

I started with a card base from a piece of Thick Very Vanilla card stock, and I ran just the front of the card thru the Big Shot inside the new Quilt Top TIEF.

Stampin’ Up! Year of Cheer and Snowflake Sentiments

Hey y’all – welcome to Monday!

I’m going to keep this pretty short – Sunday’s sale was successful, fun and…long!  So…since I’m writing this on Sunday night – I need to get off to bed so I can get up and have Monday!

If you were able to join me last night – I appreciate it, and hope I wasn’t too…bumble-dy!  If you didn’t get to watch live, here’s a link to the video on YouTube.  Hope you enjoy it!

What we did last night was make some little note cards – we’ve got new 3″ Square Envelopes in the 2017 Holiday Catalog and Mini Pizza Boxes!  The boys are the perfect size for holding three little note cards and envelopes.  I made the cards with Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and some embellishments.  Take a look-see:

Year of Cheer And Snowflake Sentiments1

They’re all made by simply scoring and folding a 3″ x 6″ piece of new Year of Cheer Specialty DSP at 3″.   Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe Hello Fall!

Happy weekend, y’all!  Hope you’re ready to do something fun – or at least useful!  Or…maybe you plan to just rest and recuperate…see a movie?  

I am ready for Fall.

I want the leaves to turn, I want to need a t-shirt or long-sleeve in the morning.  I want the ponies to start to get fuzzy and the flies to die.

Yes – die.  I’m sorry, but that’s just how I feel about flies.

In short – I’m done with heat and humidity.  Bring on a little chill!

My card today is a loud and strident collage calling for Fall!  I used the Merry Cafe stamp set (new on 1 Sept) – which so handily works with the Coffee Cups Framelits! – and a few leaves from the new Gourd Goodness stamp set.  Take a look-see:

My layout comes from this week’s MFT Card Challenge. Continue reading
