Stampin’ Up! Make a Difference Under the Sea

Mornin’, y’all1  Hope you’ve got a great weekend ahead of you!  Finny and I have some plans – we’re going to hit the Farmer’s Market and then he’s going to go to camp for a while so I can do some shopping!  When I called to make his reservation, I asked if there was room for Finn.  She asked my name – said they’ve got a few “Finn’s” who come.  When I told her my name, I also said – it’s the Aussie.  And SHE replied with “OH – I was hoping it was him – I just LOVE him!”  It’s a burden he bears with stoic dignity.

And a madly wiggling wriggler!

My card today is actually three cards.  I used the new Memories & More Small Notecards and Envelopes, the Make a Difference stamp set (which will be available to customers on 1 May in the Share What You Love early release) and … the octopus die from the Under The Sea Framelits.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Pop-Out Birthday

Mornin’, my peeps!  Here we are, back at work, heh?  Man – the weekend goes so fast, doesn’t it?  Hope yours was good.

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’d like to watch, here’s the YouTube replay.  Fair warning – we did do the fun-fold in the card I’m sharing with you today.  But we made a completely different card (which, OBTW, you’ll see tomorrow!).  Check it out.

The card that I gave you a sneak peek of on Sunday is a pop-and-twist fun fold card.  It uses the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and some of the too-fun Picture Perfect Party DSP.  It’s a party in paper and card stock!  Take a look-see:

Of course, the funnest part of this card comes when you open it! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Springtime Birthday Video Sneak Peek

Good morning!  It’s Sunday – the weather is simply…spectacular here!  It’s been in the low 70’s with clouds that finally broke up in the breeze to leave bright blue skies and big ole puffies floating by!

Makes a girl’s brain turn to the garden!  Which is evidenced by my order at Territorial Seed today – and my planned order from Burpee!  I spent some time this morning prepping beds for the coming planting time!  Wonderful way to spend a couple hours – with my good dog snoozing in the shade close by.

So – since it is Sunday, then you won’t be surprised to be getting a sneak peek of tonight’s Facebook Live video!  I’ll be on at 8pm eastern (that’s our usual time, remember!) over on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook Page!  

I’m probably going to bore you  – cuz I’m using the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP again, but…I think you’ll like this one.  Here’s a sneaky peek!

So – I hope you’ll be able to join me tonight – remember, 8pm eastern.  Here’s a link right to the page! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Celebrate Amazing You

Happy Hawwwmp day, y’all!  Hope the week is going well for you.

Last week, my friend Amy made a card that I really loved.  Well, I pretty much love all the cards she made. This one I decided to CASE-ish.  Here’s a link to her card.

Like Amy, I used the Picture Perfect DSP and the wonderful Sale-A-Bration freebie….the Celebrate You Thinlits!  Take a look-see:

These were so easy to create – that I made 4 of them! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Birthday Card

Hey, y’all!  Welcome to Tuesday and another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  

I don’t know if you’ve seen the fun paper in the Picture Perfect Party DSP – but it’s photo-realistic pictures on one side and colorful graphics on the other.  As you might imagine – the photos are party-themed.


So, I used that paper and the coordinating Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set to make my card for today.

Guess what it’s for?


Take a look-see:

Our Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #133 is a sketch challenge!  Won’t you come play along? Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Bottles, Bubbles and a Picture Perfect Birthday!

Well.  Here we are!  The very last day of 2017!  Hard to believe.  When next we meet, it’ll be 2018.

Hope you have a fun evening planned.  Our will be like all the past New Year’s Eves….and will look one heck of a lot like any other night!  We sometimes wake up around midnight – but….it’s not a priority for us, for certain sure!  

In case you’re wondering, I won’t be doing a video tonight – we’ll start up again in 2018.  So I’ll see you “next year”!

My card for today uses a couple of fun new stamp sets and framelits from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  I started with the Bubble Over bundle, featuring the Bubble Over stamp set and Bottles & Bubbles Framelits, and I added a sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday set.  Take a look-see:

I played along with two challenges for this one – the first is the December Designer’s Delight challenge from TGIF Challenges.

I selected Maria Willis’ card to CASE – you can check it out right here!

My color scheme is from the MFT Color Challenge this week.

I started with a Dapper Denim card base and embossed the front in the new Scattered Sequins Dynamic TIEF.

For my next panel, I cut a piece of True Gentleman DSP and Fast Fuse’d it to a Peekaboo Peach mat.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Peekaboo Peach panel across the card front.  Next up – another piece of Dapper Denim, once again embossed in the Scattered Sequins Dynamic TIEF.

I inked all but the very top of the large bottle stamp from Bubble Over in Peekaboo Peach and stamped it on Very Vanilla.  Then I cut it with the matching die from the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.  I stamped a “label” in Dapper Denim and cut it with it’s die, then adhered it over the bottle with Liquid Glue.  I also cut a round Very Vanilla piece and a Peekaboo Peach heart.  I adhered the heart to the circle with Liquid Glue and popped the whole thing on with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Then I added a Dapper Denim Enamel Shape heart.

For the Bubble Over sentiment, I stamped it in Dapper Denim on a strip of Very Vanilla.  Across the bottom, I ran a length of Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape.  I added the banner to the card front with Liquid Glue, then added the bottle with some Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I popped the whole card front onto the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my bubbles, I stamped the image twice on Very Vanilla in stamped-off-once Dapper Denim and cut them with the fun little bubble die in the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits then adhered them with Liquid Glue.  To finish things off, I stuck on a bunch of round shapes from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes to the bubbles.  And added some of the teardrop shapes to the bottle – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the bubbles image again – this time stamping it off twice before stamping the center of a Very Vanilla panel. I added the sentiment from Picture Perfect Birthday in Dapper Denim.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and into the Dapper Denim card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some more Dapper Denim bubbles on the front – I stamped the image twice without re-inking…

…and some more True Gentleman DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  When I first saw this Bubble Over set, I wasn’t really sure about it – but…it’s growing on me real quick!  I love all the bottle and label and sentiment possibilities – and the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits is so much fun!  Hope you like!

TTFN – until 2018!

Finn Fan Fix  

One of the things I’ve taught Finn to do – and encouraged – is to run between my legs.  I don’t know why.  It seemed like a good idea – and fun! – at the time!

As a smart Man, he will offer to do things that he knows I like – whether I’ve asked for them or not.

All in the hope that I’ve got a cookie in my pocket.

Which, of course, I usually do!

This morning, he graced me with…

But he only went half way.  And then just stopped.  And stared off into the distance.

We may never know why! 🙂
