Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour Sneak Peek

Happy Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!  Wheeeeee…..cresting the middle of the week and sliding down the backside to the weekend!  This Saturday I get to do my virtual OnTour Event with Stampin’ Up!  This is a Zoom event – in lieu of in person, cuz…you know!  I’ve heard good things from the folks who’ve already had their event – so….I’m looking forward to it! 🙂 Hope you’ve got something that you’re looking forward to, too! 🙂

I’ve got a Sneak Peek for you today of a cool new bundle from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – that you’ll be able to pick up on 4 May!  The stamp set, called Color & Contour, will be bundled with a cool set called Scalloped Contours.  I used both of them and added some Flowers For Every Season DSP  (available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog – but retiring SOON!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the sketch at the Inspired By challenge.

…and by the inspiration photo from the As You See It Challenge.  This one was also a speed challenge – and this card took me 9:40 to complete (you know – once I’d figured out what I was going to do)! 🙂

I cut a Just Jade piece of paper from the Flowers For Every Season DSP  using the largest Scalloped Contour Die and then I adhered it with Liquid Glue to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the flower image from Color & Contour in Just Jade – then I cut it with the largest Stitched Shapes circle die and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Color & Contour detailed outline flower three times on Basic White – twice in Bumble Bee and once in Magenta Madness.  I used the fill stamp (this is a two-step set) with the same colors.  I cut the three flowers with the die in the Scalloped Contours set.

I adhered the Magenta Madness and one of the Bumble Bee flowers with Liquid Glue and popped the third flower on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from Color & Contour, is stamped in Misty Moonlight on Basic White, and cut it with the smallest rectangle in the Scalloped Contour die set.  I popped it onto the card front with Dimensionals.

I added Cinnamon Cider or Bumble Bee dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the middle of the flowers – added a Just Jade dot to the sentiment and the card front was done!

Serious?!  How fun is this set?? I LOVE those scalloped rectangles – and they’re perfectly sized for A2 cards!

On the inside, I stamped the Bumble Bee Color & Contour flowers in the corner of a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Color & Contour flowers on the front…

..and more of the Flowers For Every Season DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This quick card was easy to make with this new Color & Contour bundle  – and I KNOW you’re going to want it for yourself, just as soon as you can get it – which is 4 May.  Unless, of course, you decided to join the SU! team right now – THEN you could get it – and any of our other pre-order goodies! – right now in your Starter Kit (a huge value in and of itself) and with your cool new 20% discount! 😉

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Wayne and I worked outside on Sunday and much of Monday – planting and tidying up the patio off the barn.

At the end of the day on Monday, after we fed, it was so nice outside that we sat out on the patio for a bit.

With Finn, of course – he LOVES that time of night outside!

Wayne – kicking back.

Oh wait – had to adjust the ball cap – sorry!

NOW he looks cool!

Finn don’t need no stinkin’ ball cap to look cool….

Pretty darned nice way to end the day, I have to say! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Peaceful Moment Sympathy Card

Good morning and HAPPY FRIDAY!!  Do you have something fun planned?  I think our plans revolve around the garden  – I know…shocker! – time to get it all in the ground!  And..I’m HOPING the plan includes putting up my picket fence around the garden!  Send fence-putting-up thoughts to Wayne, will you?!? 😉

So – the card I made today is one that I very carefully made for our friend whose wife died on Sunday – that was the funeral we went to yesterday.  So it’s a masculine one – and one that I really like.  Of course, in our mad rush to get out of the house – we don’t do that very well in the mornings – I left the card sitting smack in the middle of the kitchen table. 🙁  We’ll have to get it to him a different way, I guess.

I used a couple of favorite goodies that are, sadly, retiring soon!  The beautiful Rooted in Nature stamp set and coordinating Nature’s Roots die set.  Then I threw in a couple of sentiments from Peaceful Moments.  I added some In Good Taste DSP  (NOT retiring – phew!!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Comfort & Hope

Good morning, y’all – and happy Friday!  Hope your week was good and that you’ve got a good something planned for the weekend!  Not sure we’ll have the weather for planting – but…at least we won’t have to water the garden.  Maybe? 😉

I’ve got a pet sympathy card for you today – not cuz I need one right now but…because it’s one I like to have in my stash.  So – I pulled out my go-to-Pet-Punch….the Dog Builder Punch (which is RETIRING and on sale for a WHOPPING 40% off!!), the Pampered Pets and Comfort & Hope stamp sets – plus Playful Pets DSP.  There’s a couple of other faves in there, too – take a look-see:

Stamps-N-Lingers Butterfly Bouquet Special Bundles and….Some Retiring Faves!

MIKEMIKEMIKEMIKEMIIIIIKE!!  Do you know what day it is?!?  It’s HAWWWMP Day!

And I’ve got a special bundle for you today – we’re getting close to the Early Release of the amazing, awesome, beauteous, wunnermus….fill-in-your-own-superlative here….Butterfly Brilliance Suite!  So… I’m betting you’ve been waiting for this post! 🙂

You might recall that the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and matching Brilliant Wings Die set is a bundle that you’ll see in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – but…this is a chance for you to get it early!

This promotion will run from 2 Mar – 3 May 2021.  After that  – you’ll have to wait for the release of the new Annual Catalog to get them.

But – there is ALSO some gorgeous Designer Series paper that will NOT BE AVAILABLEafter the end of this promotion period.  You read that right!  The Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP and the Natural Touch Specialty DSP are only going to be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST – and then…poof!  Gone! 🙁

So…I took a look at what’s coming on 2 March – and put together ONE SINGLE BUNDLE – and a couple of add-ons for you.

The Butterfly Brilliance Bundle – $71

If you bought all these products separately you’d spend about $85 when you factor in shipping and tax – depending on how much Uncle Sam takes where you live.

Here’s what you’ll get:

Butterfly Brilliance Bundle $54.75
Butterfly Brilliance 6″ x 6″ DSP $11.50
Natural Touch Specialty DSP $5.00

BONUS:  When you purchase the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, you’ll get a FREE package of Gold Hoop Embellishments (see how well these work and why I love them with this bundle right here!)!

Now – when you purchase the bundle – you’ve got the option to add on some additional packs of the DSPs and/or the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine if you don’t have one!  If you don’t already have one – this is a GREAT time to get it and you’re for SURE going to want to be able to use the amazing Brilliant Wings Dies (they cut out the stamped image from Butterfly Brilliance AND butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP!!

Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP add-on:  $10 each

Natural Touch Specialty DSP add-on: $4 each

Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine: $109 each (note: this is the full-size machine and comes with 1 Base Plate, 1 Die Plate, 2 Cutting Plates, and 1 Specialty Plate – so you’ll be able to get to work right away!)

So – if this looks good to you, fill out the form below and pick your goodies!

I’ll send you a PayPal invoice on 23 Feb and then on 2 Mar, I’ll get them right on the way directly to you!

PLEASE NOTE: This offer is available to anyone – but I can only ship to addresses in the United States or Military APO addresses.  Thanks for your understanding!

This special will only be available from me at these great discounts until 15 Mar 2021  (or while DSP supplies last!) – so…don’t hesitate!! 🙂

One more note – once you hit “Submit” -it takes a hot second (or twelve!) for the system to do it’s thing.  Be patient – it’ll get there. Once it has – it says “Message Sent – Go Back”.   You can click “Go Back” and that will return you to the Blog Post! 🙂


Happy bundling and saving! 🙂

Now – with the new comes the….Retiring! 🙁

Every year we say good-bye to some cherished products and some much-used-go-to In Colors!  And – 2021 is no exception!

The Retiring List will be coming out in March! While we don’t know EVERYTHING that will be on it…we DO know that our 2019-2021 In Colors will for sure be leaving us!

NOW is the time to stock up on Ink, Refills, Cardstock and DSP – they’ll sell out QUICK once the list goes live!

Here’s the whole shootin’ match – so…be sure to get yours before they fly off the shelves!

Get busy and don’t let your favorite colors pass you by!!

Stampin’ Up! Dandelion Wishes and Magnolias

Happy Friday, y’all!  Are you ready for a weekend?  I am – you’d think this had NOT been a four-day week! 🙂

So – we’ve been invited to an…odd?…party in a couple of weeks.  Apparently there’s going to be food and drink and games and karaoke and a wedding and some prizes and…wait.  What now?

A wedding?

Yes.  A wedding might “break out”.  Like…a flash-mob?

I haven’t a clue.  But – like military wives of yore (at least I HOPE it’s all “yore” now!) – I’m going to – figuratively – have my white gloves in my purse.  JIC.

In this instance, my “white gloves” will be a wedding-appropriate card just waiting to be signed.

You know.  If a Wedding. Breaks. Out. 😉

It was actually pretty quick and easy and uses one of my favorite (and carrying over!) stamp sets – called Dandelion Wishes.  And I paired it with some new Magnolia Lane DSP!  Take a look-see:
