Stampin’ Up! Country Livin’ for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! It’s color week and we’ve got the full complement of hoppers today!  Do be sure to check out all their projects when you’re done here, won’t you?  

Our color scheme sent me in the direction of the Coffee Break DSP – and I decided to use a new-to-me stamp set called Country Livin’.  I added a sentiment from…well, it’s a surprise.  Take a look-see:

Our colors? Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! True Gentleman Basket Weave

Mornin’!  Hope your weekend has started off well – and that you’re planning something fun!

My card for today is a pretty large departure from my usual style.  In that it’s not got a ton of layers, and embellishments.  No froof.

I was sort of thinking…masculine card – after I saw the color scheme at this week’s Color Throwdown.  So I pulled out some True Gentleman DSP and the Truly Tailored Bundle and put it all on top of a Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF embossed card front.  Take a look-see:

The layout – which is quite clean and simple – is courtesy of the FabFriday sketch challenge this week. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Springtime Petals Wreath

Well, hidey-ho, my peeps!!  Friday arrived quickly, thanks to the miracle of a Monday holiday!  Gotta love it!

I found out yesterday evening that a friend of mine had been in the hospital the past couple of days – with a flu-like illness (but not “the flu”!).  Fortunately, she (and her baby! 🙂 ) are fine and have been sent home.  But, since I’m not there to administer a hug in person, I thought I’d send her one in paper-and-ink!

So, I pulled together some of my favorite Springtime Foils Specialty DSP, a few leaves from Petals & More, and a couple of sweet sentiments from the Hanging Garden and Lots of Love stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

The inspiration for this card came from the photo in the Fusion challenge this week. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette & More on Barn Wooden Textures

It’s Sunday, y’all.  And…it’s Super Bowl Sunday!

I don’t really care much about the game – I’m pretty sure Tom Brady is playing and then some other team?  But – I do enjoy the commercials.  Not half-time so much, unless it’s Carrie Underwood or Brad Paisley.  

Now, I know there are folks who DO like to watch the game and since it’s this evening, I’m going to cater to them (and to me – cuz…commercials!) and we’re going to skip tonight’s video.  Sorry – but…I really just think this is what we need to do!  Which means that this isn’t a sneak peek – it’s the full mugilicuddy!

I made a fun little card with the beautiful images in the Petal Palette stamp set, cut with dies in the bundled Petals & More Thinlits.  The background is made from strips of Wood Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:

Now, don’t think I came up with this idea on my own (I hardly ever do!!) – nope, I got the inspiration from this week’s photo at The Card Concept. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Heart Happiness Petal Palette

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a good weekend ahead of you!  Ours is a little mundane – but there’s goodness in mundane, isn’t there?  Call it routine, call it a rut – or call it…just life!  It’s a good thing to have and that’s what we’re going to have some of this weekend – just life!  Here’s hoping the same for you!

My card for today would be perfect to send to your best friend, your Mom, your sister – pretty much anyone that you’re grateful is in your life.  It uses the so-pretty Heart Happiness stamp set and a sentiment (plus a few other goodies) from the Petal Palette bundle.  Take a look-see:

I used a sketch, color and inspiration photo challenge to help me with this one.  The first, a sketch challenge from the Freshly Made Sketches, lent a hand with the layout. Continue reading
