Stampin’ Up! Blossoms, Hearts and Sunshine Sayings Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  It’s sketch week and I know our talented ladies will come up with some awesome projects for you so,  I hope you’ll take a few minutes to browse thru all our blogs today! 🙂

Here’s the sketch we’re all playing with….

I decided to go kind of Old-School – meaning I used mostly products from the Annual Catalog.  More specifically, I went back to one of my favorite sets – the Grateful Bunch stamp set and matching Blossom Bunch Punch.  And I snagged a cute sentiment (I like the font!) from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I started by double matting a piece of the Sending Love DSP Stack paper – first on Daffodil Delight and then on Real Red.  Then I wrapped a length of Real Red 3/8″ Striped Satin Ribbon around the panel and secured it in the back with scotch tape.

Next up, I cut a Real Red heart with a die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits, and embossed it in the Hearts TIEF.  Using a Glue Dot, I wrapped a couple three loops of Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine onto the card front, then popped the heart on top (DE-bossed side up!) with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the triple-flower image stamp in the Grateful Bunch stamp set to make several Daffodil Delight flowers on Whisper White, then punched them out with the Blossom Bunch Punch.  I could have used them like that, but I wanted them to look even more daisy-ish. so I went ahead and fussy cut them  – which eliminated the white edge.  Then I used my Bone Folder to gently curl the tips of the petals.

I colored the centers of the large and small flowers with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, then added a Daffodil Delight Enamel Shape.

The sentiment, from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set, is stamped in Real Red on a piece of Whisper White and cut into a banner with my Paper Snips.  I edged it with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it to the heart with Liquid Glue.

Finally, I spread my little daisies all around the heart and sentiment with Liquid Glue, and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped some more Daffodil Delight Grateful Bunch flowers in the corner of a Whisper White panel, and colored their centers with the Real Red Marker.

I double matted the panel on Daffodil Delight and Real Red, and SNAILd it into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Grateful Bunch flowers on the front…

…and some of the Sending Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how the elements from the different stamp and framelits sets came together with the new Sending Love DSP to create a sunshine-y clean and layered birthday card!  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Sending Love and Sunshines Wishes

Mornin’, y’all!  Here we are on Super Bowl Sunday! I don’t understand why the game is so danged late!  What do people do at Super Bowl parties all day?  Well – I know they drink a lot of beer.  But…what else?  There’s no game to watch until after dinner.  So…?  Do folks eat nachos and wings for dinner?  Why isn’t the game at 1?  That time makes a lot more sense for a big game.

Besides.  By the time one-hour of game play is crammed into 5 hours…I’m going to have a heckuva time staying awake!  It’ll be like trying to stay up to see New Year’s come in!

Finn isn’t interested in the game.  Although, if he watched, he’d probably see that it’s sort of like keep-away!  One of his favorite games.  The only thing better than keep-away is a solid game of tug!  Which he’s really good at playing!  He can set his 60 pounds back against a stick and lock those pearly whites around his bumper or a frisbee or a stick and….you’re not getting it until he gives up.

And he doesn’t give up!!


My card for today is a study in Red, White and Silver/Gray.  And, while it uses hearts from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and the Sending Love DSP – it’s not a Valentine’s Card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love You Lots!

Well, it’s Monday again.  A-freakin’-mazing how fast the weekend flies by.  I wonder if it would if I was “really” retired?  Would I still get the Sunday-afternoon-blues?  Hmm.  Not sure.

So – I had a bit of a revelation this weekend.  Ready?  Here ’tis.

Mrs. Brady had it made.

Not cuz they knew it was much more than a hunch.

Not even cuz all the girls had hair of gold like their mother (the youngest one in curls).


It was Alice!

Mrs. Brady had Alice.

I don’t even know if she realized how good she had it – her fake tv house was always clean – fake dinner was always ready and the fake dishes were always done.

And – thanks to Alice – Mrs. Brady wouldn’t even have gotten upset over…

That used to be the stuffed squeaky toy he got for Christmas.  I think one of those white things is the squeaky thing…

Sigh…9 months.  15 more months of chewie….sigh…. Alice would just cheerfully vacuum up the mess.  No.  Wait – she’d pick up all the pieces, stuff them back in the toy and sew it up.  All while a lovely roast was cooking in the oven.

I want need Alice!! 😉

Now – my card for today is another Valentine’s Day card or a hey-I-really-love-you-here’s-a-card card.  I used the Annual Catalog host-exclusive set called Love You Lots, plus a few goodies from the Sealed with Love Bundle.  And threw in a little…Grateful Bunch!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sealed with Love Valentine’s Card

Good morning, y’all!  Happy Saturday! From home!

I was met with the anticipated wiggle butt – after he stared at me from the living room as I came in thru the garage door!  He wasn’t entirely sure who it was until I called him.  Then he was all over me!  And – didn’t even have an “accident”!  Maybe he’s outgrowing that little quirk…. 🙂

And – you do know we’re talking about Finn….right?  Not Wayne!

Just sayin’… 😉

So, it occured to me that since we’re getting really close to Valentine’s Day I probably ought to make a Valentine’s Day card.  Right?  I used the pretty Sealed with Love bundle and some Sending Love DSP to make a cute and easy little card for you to CASE.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! No Special Reason Needed!

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Monday – but…no work today!  Whoo-hoo!

Before I get going – I need to fix a mistake I made yesterday.  On the sympathy card, the inside sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases – I erroneously told you it was from Thoughts & Prayers.  I’ve updated the post accordingly, but wanted to let you know! 🙂

I’m changing Finn’s name.  Or…I’ve giving him a “formal” registered name.  It’s “Finn Don’t…Good Dog”

Finn don’t get the cat food.  Good Dog

Finn don’t bother the cat.  Good Dog

Finn don’t eat horse poop.  Good Dog

Finn don’t bite me.  Good Dog

Finn don’t….Finn don’t…Finn don’t.  Good dog! 😉

He tries to get the “good dog” piece to come first – or even only! – but…it’s hard.  Really really hard!

My card for today is a No Special Reason card.  One that could go to someone just because it’s…Monday!  It uses the Special Reason bundle – which is really cool.

I love how the bundled Stylish Stems Framelits work on this one – you can cut detailed “negative” spaces – and you can also cut those negative spaces out using a second die.  I’ve done that in this card, so you’ll get to see that.  I combined the set with some Real Red and White paper from the Sending Love DSP.  Take a look-see:
