Stampin’ Up! In Sweet Symmetry Thank You Friend

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Hope you had a great weekend!  I had HUGE plans for yesterday – the weather was going to be iffy and sauna-ish so I thought…what a great day to get caught up!  Organize my craft room – pack up Retired Products – maybe get ahead on a few cards.  And then…

Sir Richard Branson went to space.  And down the rabbit hole I went! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️  I am now trying to figure out how to come up with a quarter mil for a 90 minute E-ticket ride to space and back!  Cuz I would SOOOO go!

Until I find all that extra coin (you know – that I don’t need for…just about ANYthing else!) – I guess I’ll keep making cards and sharing them with you!  Like – the one today, which is a clean-and-simple number from the In Symmetry Bundle – with a little help from Sweet Symmetry DSP and the Stitched Greenery Die.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Easy Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial!

Good morning – hope your weekend is going well!  Our On Tour virtual event yesterday was great – I got some super cool ideas to share with y’all in the coming weeks as the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog gets closer – so…stay tuned, okay?!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see it – here ’tis on YouTube!

I am such a fan of the new Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack!  It has so many possibilities for super-easy card making (oh – and it’s ALSO great for scrapbooking! 😉 ) – and it lets you make quick – easy – and WUNNERMUS cards in no time!  For this one, I paired it with some Hand-Penned DSP and a die from the Penned Flowers Dies.  This card pack – as well as the entire Hand-Penned Suite – will be available to customers on 4 May! Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

I started with some pretty Pale Papaya paper from the Hand-Penned DSP that I matted on Garden Green for the card front.  Then I pulled out a second design from the DSP pack and cut the top of the piece with the scalloped die in the Penned Flowers Die set.  Remember – this Penned Flowers will be bundled with the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set.

I adhered the scallop-edge panel onto the bottom of the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled two coordinating small panels from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and cut them both down a little bit.  Then I adhered the yellow-striped card to the card front at an angle with Liquid Glue.

I popped the second card over the first with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I used some Stampin’ Seal to add a length of Pale Papay 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon in a loose Z-shape.

I pulled one of the sentiment stickers included in the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and de-sticky-fied the back.  Tip:  when you’re going to use a sticker and want to pop it on Dimensionals (and who WOULDN’T?!?) – then you want to “dull” the sticky.  Use an Embossing Buddy if you have it to pat the sticky side of the sticker.  Or – tap it on your bare arm or on your jeans!  🙂

Once I de-sticky-fied the label – I popped it over the ribbon with the aforementioned Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few diamond-shaped Clear epoxy elements from the new Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials (coming on 4 May in the new catalog) here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another sticker sentiment – this time using as an actual sticker – on a Basic White panel.  In the corner, I added a floral sticker – it comes in black and white.  I colored it with the Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends (yes!!  New blends in the new catalog!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another of the Blends-colored floral stickers on the front…

…and added more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  As someone commented on the Live video – it would be hard to make a NOT-pretty card with the gorgeous Hand-Penned Suite, right??  And the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack is not only gorgeous – it’s handy as all get out!

I hope you like!

Are you having trouble waiting for 4 May to get this Hand-Penned Suite and other goodies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!?

I don’t blame you – I’d have been anxious, too, if I hadn’t already been able to buy all the new things!  Well – let not your heart be troubled!  I can help you pick any of the new Pre-order items – like the Simply Elegant, Hand-Penned, Pansy Petals and Beauty of the Earth Suites…right now!  When you join the Stampin’ Up! Team – you’ll spend just $99 for your Starter Kit and select $125 worth of SU product (including the PRE-ORDER!).  THEN – you’ll get to buy WHATEVER you like with at least a 20% discount.   As always, there’s no obligation, no commitment and NO requirement to sell/blog/do workshops/etc!  Let me help you get started – I’d love to have you on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team! Get more info here – or…just give me a holler!

Finn Fan Fix 

The other day as I was tidying up the barn aisle – I happened to look up at our Maternity Ward.

And – there she was!

She was – apparently – hoping for her 10 minutes of fame, cuz she hung around for me to fumble my phone out of my pocket – wake it up and get to the camera – aim – focus – click.  She departed immediately thereafter!

And – a little later – I got a glimpse of what she wanted to show me…

Not really their best side, but…they’re young yet.

Guess I need to put the dog bed under the muzzle so that when flying school starts – their first failures won’t be so likely to end in tragedy! 🙁

Finn Fan Fix 

Last night, Wayne, Finn and I had a staycation.

We went “camping”.

Well – we grilled steaks over our new cooker/fireplace doohickey that we got from Costco (cuz…Costco is awesome!).

We have finally got our patio area behind the barn apartment sort of mostly kind of practically almost finished.  So – Wayne gathered up some oak and we grilled out.  Over actual WOOD!

It.  Was.  Heaven! 🙂

Wayne was the chef.

We had steaks and asparagus and a potato.  Some sauteed squash and mushrooms.  And salad!

Hmm – not sure why the Carol-Channing-Smile…. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Finny observed the prep from the porch…

But moseyed up just in time…

And then it was time to see if Mom has a different attitude when she eats outside!

He even pulled out “sit pretty”….while staring intently at my plate.

I’m only a little ashamed to confess that I caved. 😉

Afterwards – we still had fire.

And…we had marshmallows.  And hershey bars.  But…nary a graham cracker to be found. 🙁

But – I did have….

The components for Marma-ladies!!

Yum!

We decided we need to try to do this once a week!

We’ll see how that works when summer “hits”!  😉

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Life Can Be Prickly!

Good morning, y’all and happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is proceeding apace to the weekend.

Now – let me say, to start out….I hadn’t intended to use the Flowering Cactus Medley two days in a row.

I really hadn’t.  I even second and third guessed my decision.  But – once the card was in my head – I had to make it.  So…I hope you’ll give me a pass!  Take a look-see:

The layout is from the FUSION challenge this week – obviously I used the sketch side!

My friend and teammate, Pam Kean, had sent me a card a while back and I loved it!

On Monday, my eye fell on it again and my brain said…make THAT – but with a cactus.  So – I did!

I started with a piece of Basic White that I embossed in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Next up, I cut a pretty piece of Flowering Cactus DSP (included in the Medley) using a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.

I adhered the die cut to the white panel with Liquid Glue, trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer and matted the whole thing on Mint Macaron for the card front.

I used a Stitched Shapes square to cut a Calypso Coral square – then used a Layering Squares die to cut out the middle to create a frame.  Then I snipped the frame on one edge.

I cut another same-size Stitched Shapes square from Mint Macaron and then “wove” the Calypso Coral frame around it – adhering the snipped ends with a little Liquid Glue.

I cut a smaller Stitched Shapes square from Basic White and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the whole thing over the Stitched So Sweetly DSP piece with Liquid Glue.

I used a die in the Flowering Cactus Medley to cut one of the Calypso Coral-tinged cacti from the Flowering Cactus DSP and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a narrow strip of Basic White, I stamped the Flowering Cactus sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Then I popped it across the bottom of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere a few of the Calypso Coral felt embellishments and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Flowering Cactus sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  Next to it, in stamped-off-once Calypso Coral, I added a pretty double-flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mint Macaron mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the flower image again – but in full strength Calypso Coral – on the front…

…and more of the Flowering Cactus DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…can you forgive me??  I really love how this turned out (thanks, Pam, for the inspiration!) and I am really REALLY loving all the pieces and parts that you get when you snap up the Flowering Cactus Medley!!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Just a little look at some “Spring” around the farm!

Really pretty long-view of the pasture with the girls.

A little closer – can’t help it – I love this time of year, here!  Of course, I’m also a little partial to those golden girls in the late afternoon sunshine! 🙂

And…the camera lens filters out the massive clouds of yellow pollen floating all over here and there!
