Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Labels Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  I’m tickled beyond measure to be coming to you today not on an airplane!  I know, I know – it’s only a reprieve, not a stay.  But still!

Since I’ll be around tonight – for sure! – we’ll be able to get together for our Sunday night FB Live video!  Whoo-hoo!

I’ll be using the Labels to Love stamp set (yes, again – but this card looks completely different than the one I did with the Stamping Sunday blog hop earlier today! That’s how versatile the stamp set is, y’all!), some Painted Harvest sunflowers and Painted Autumn DSP.  Take a look-see:

I’ll be Live at 8pm Eastern right here on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  Hope to see you then! 🙂

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! Painted Harvest Vintage Leaves

Well, it’s Friday, y’all!  We made it!  Hope you’re ready for a fun weekend.  I’ve got my traditional pre-trip hair cut for tomorrow and then….if nothing changes….I head to the airport on Sunday.  

Bleh.

Let me repeat….B. L. E. H.

But – for now…let’s take a look at the card I made on Thursday as my end-of-day stress reliever!  I used one of my all-time favorite sets – the Vintage Leaves and added a Painted Harvest sentiment.  Take a look-see:

This layout was inspired by the sketch challenge at the Paper Craft Crew.  

It also plays nicely with the challenge from The Paper Players.

I made the card front from a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Using the little splotches image from the Timeless Textures stamp set, I stamped around in the top corner with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I ran the panel thru the Big Shot in my Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF.

With my sponge, I lightly burnished the raised wood grain with Cajun Craze.  Tip – use your – previously inked – dry sponge.  Don’t add any more ink.  It makes it easier to stay on top of the grain.  I also flicked the edges of the panel.

The panel is matted on a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock.

I adhered a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon down the side with some liquid Glue.  Then I made leaves!

This is the stained glass technique.  First I stamped two smaller flowers on a piece of Vellum card stock in Early Espresso.

And let them dry.  It takes a while, folks.  Be patient.  Or…give them a little hit with your Heat Tool!

While those dried, I rubbed another piece of Vellum card stock with my Embossing Buddy and stamped the large leaf in Versamark, sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.

I colored the leaves by turning them over – and coloring the back! – with my Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers.  I used the darker colors to highlight the veins in the leaves and then filled them in with the lighter colors.  When that was dry…I cut them out with the matching dies in the Leaflets Frameltis.

I curled the leaves lightly with a stylus then used Dimensionals behind the large leaf (and a little Liquid Glue on the stem) to adhere it to the card front.  Then I added the smaller leaves over top – with just a small line of Liquid Glue down the center and the stem.

The sentiment, from Painted Harvest, is stamped on Very Vanilla in Cajun Craze ink.  Then I tore around the sentiment and flicked the torn edges with a Crumb Cake sponge.  I also crumpled up the sentiment a couple of times to vintage-ize it a little and then popped it over the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final pieces are a Linen Thread bow (make multiple loops and tie a thread around the middle) and a few Pumpkin Pie Enamel Shapes.

On the inside, I added a couple of the smaller leaves in Early Espresso and colored them with my Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie markers.  I also added some Timeless Textures Crumb Cake spotches and flicked the edges with the Cajun Craze sponge.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Vintage Leaves and Timeless Textures on the front…

…and I embossed the flap in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF and burnished it with the Cajun Craze sponge.

Et Voila!  Some Vintage Leaves with an assist from Painted Harvest.  And, of course, the wonderful Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF!  All with some subtle color from the stained glass technique on Vellum.  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Count My Blessings

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope you enjoyed the long weekend!  We had a great day – smoked some ribs that turned out so good they should be illegal!  Spent the afternoon with Scout and her family and a few additional folks.  I sort of blew the diet – but…man, oh man, it was worth it!

I have a pretty, clean and simple card to share with you today, made with the Painted Harvest stamp set and the (also new) Count My Blessings stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 4

I let two challenges give me inspiration for this one.  The first, CAS(E) This Sketch, helped with the layout.
Screen Shot 2017-09-04 at 19.40.01

And then the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge helped with several elements…I went across the diagonal from top left to bottom right!

Screen Shot 2017-09-04 at 19.40.16

I started with a plain piece of Whisper White card stock and, using the pretty flower image in the Count My Blessings stamp set, inked it in Versamark and stamped it four times.  I made the sprays come from a central spot and made them so they’d extend beyond the Painted Harvest flower I was planning for the middle of the card.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

I sprinkled the four flower-sprays with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated them up.  When it was cool, I used my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker to lightly color each of the flowers.

For the flower, I stamped the larger image in Painted Harvest several times in Powder Pink on Whisper White.  With each stamp, I rotated the image slightly.  Then I stamped the second, smaller, image in Sweet Sugarplum – twice – rotating the stamp.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 2

I stamped the middle of the flower twice in Daffodil Delight and then added the small three-dot image in Daffodil Delight multiple times.

Then I fussy cut the flower. 🙂

I dry fit the flower over the gold-embossed sprays, and then stamped the sentiment from Painted Harvest in Versamark and heat embossed it in Gold.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 3

I put a few Glue Dots on the back of my fussy cut flower and used them to wind multiple loops of Gold Metallic Thread round, then I popped the flower onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish off the card front, I added a few Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes.

On the inside, I added another Powder Pink and Sweet Sugarplum flower from Painted Harvest.  And I finished the middle with more Daffodil Delight.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 5

I Fast Fuse’d the panel on a Powder Pink mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the Painted Harvest flowers on the front…

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 6

…and some more Count My Blessings flower sprays – stamped in Pear Pizzazz and colored with my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker – on the envelope flap.

Painted Harvets Count My Blessings - Stamps-N-Lingers 7

Et Voila!  Painted Harvest brings yet another gorgeous flower to life, this time accented by the pretty and delicate flower sprays in the Count My Blessings stamp set.  Hope you like! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix  

We had a good time yesterday at Scout’s house!

Matt’s girlfriend, Kaitlin, brought her female Aussie, named Hannah.

That’s right – 3 Aussies – and Finn was the youngest.

And – biggest!

He had a total blast.

There were sticks involved…

IMG_9687

Hannah played referee.  

This particular standoff lasted quite some time, with both of them just staring at each other.  Their expressions were so serious and intense.  Getting the stick is important Aussie business.  Please note that Hannah is ensuring that no stick-tug rules are being broken.

IMG_4511 2

At the end of the day, he was tired but really happy.  And quite ready to go home! 🙂

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…
