Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Sneak Peek for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Fall Frenzy!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

First off – it’s hard to think about Fall when it’s 100 outside.  Just sayin’… 😉

I decided another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog was the way to go here – and I figured….why not go with Thanksgiving?  So…I pulled out the new Birds of a Feather stamp set (which covers Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day!) and paired the little turkey with some Come To Gather DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s TGIF Sketch Challenge.

And the colors are from… Sunday Stamps! 🙂

I started with some feather-y Pretty Peacock paper from the Come To Gather DSP (coming in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog on 4 Sept) and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

On a smaller rectangle of Very Vanilla, I stamped the little turkey from Birds of a Feather (avail 4 Sept) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored – her (she’s my turkey and she can be a she if I want to her to be, so… 😉 ) – with my Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends.  Plus my Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Pretty Posy Stampin’ Write Markers.

I stamped the gobbler again on a second Pretty Peacock design from the Come To Gather DSP and fussy cut just the apron.  Did the same on a Pretty Posy checkered piece of 2019-2021 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and cut out the apron pocket.  I adhered both with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Birds of a Feather sentiment in Pretty Peacock in the bottom corner.  Then I matted it on Crushed Curry and adhered it to the card front.

I pulled out a Tags & Feathers Elements and colored the middle stripe of one with my Pretty Peacock Blend.  Then I adhered it to the panel with Liquid Glue.

A tiny Linen Thread bow and some Pretty Posy 2019-2021 Faceted Dots finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added the Birds of a Feather gobbler in the bottom corner of a Very Vanilla panel and colored her as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another gobbler on the front…

…and some more feathery Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this little image from Birds of a Feather – and it’s so cool that the single set covers so many occasions, don’t you think?  And the Come To Gather DSP is going to be a mainstay for all your Fall projects!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Terry Lynns’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Akiko’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Let It Snowman Season Sneak Peek!

Happy….uhm.  Hmmm.

Wait – don’t tell me.  Let me guess.

Monday?

Yes.  Yes – that’s it.  Happy Monday!

See?  Embracing my retired status like a boss! LOL!

I’ve got a quick and easy, clean and simple sneak peek Christmas Card for you today!  It uses the new Snowman Seasons stamp set and Let It Snow Specialty DSP from the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  And…some really uber-adorable enamel shapes from the new Let it Snow Embellishment Kit.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

I started with some new Let It Snow Specialty DSP (coming on 4 Sept!) in Real Red and matted it on Coastal Cabana for the card front. Next up is a smaller piece of Whisper White – also matted on Coastal Cabana – and then adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut three small squares with the Stitched Shapes Dies in Whisper White and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  In the open space, I stamped a sentiment from the new Snowman Season stamp set (avail on 4 Sept) in Real Red.  Over top, I stamped a snowflake in Coastal Cabana.

I built the three snowmen using pieces from the new (and wonderful!!) Let It Snow Embellishment Kit!

I “built” the snowmen with large “coal” enamel shapes for eyes, “carrots” and…a Shaded Spruce felt scarf (adhered with Liquid Glue).

And…that was it for the card front.  Super quick and super simple!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Snowman Season in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Over top I stamped the snowflakes in Coastal Cabana – stamping twice without re-inking.  In the bottom corner, I added a top hat in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – and colored it with my Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I added more of the enamel shapes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Coastal Cabana mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Coastal Cabana snowflakes on the front…

…and I added some more Let It Snow Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!!  I am completely in love with the entire Let It Snow Suite – in particular the Snowman Season stamp set and Let It Snow DSP! And – the felt and enamel shapes in the Let It Snow Embellishment kit are totes-adorbs!  I hope you like and are adding this suite to your shopping list for the arrival of the 2019 Holiday Catalog on 4 Sept!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Vol 2!

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope your weekend was awesome – and that your week ahead is looking promising.

On Friday – okay and again on Saturday! – I promised the continuation of the 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek.  So….since I’m mostly true to my word, let’s get ‘er done! 🙂

We ended up last week with the Feels Like Frost Suite – so…let’s move into Fall!  There’s a lot of goodness to share so…get comfy!

The Come To Gather Suite is the perfect way to usher in a season of crisp leaves and thanks!

The featured Gather Together stamp set and bundled Gathered Leaves dies go together perfectly – with the dies embossing and cutting at the same time for easy Fall projects!

The final suite in the new catalog is the adorable Spooktacular Bash Suite!  If you love all-things Halloween, then this is the place for you!  The Spooktacular Bash stamp set – with its bundled Ornate Frames Dies – are the perfect accompaniment to the Monster Bash DSP.  Those dies even cut out images in the DSP!  Doesn’t get much easier than that!

Okay – that’s the suites.  Let’s look at some other fun bundles and goodies!

Have you heard that…it’s okay to be Itty Bitty?  Well – it TIS!  Especially if we’re talking about the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle with its Christmas Layers Dies!

The Bells Are Ringing Bundle includes Christmas sentiments and the 11 piece Detailed Bells Dies – perfect for creating stamped and cut bells and boughs and bows!

Do you like snowglobes?  Ever wished you could put one on a card!  Well….you’ll be able to when you use the Still Scenes Bundle – with the Still Scenes stamp set and bundled Snow Globe Scenes Dies.  AND – be sure to pick up a pack of new Snow Globe Shaker Domes – with their handy adhesive strips – and some new Snowflake Sequins.  Snow Globe Shaker card?  Done!!

If you’re an ice skater – or a wanna be ice skater – or…you WATCH ice skating on tv!…then you’re going to love the Free Skate Bundle!

As we segue into the Fall section of the catalog, we come across the Harvest Hellos Bundle!  This is a stamp set (Harvest Hellos) and Punch (Apple Builder) bundle!  Make apples – whole and slices! – and pumpkins!  All with the same bundle!

If you’re looking for a season-spanning bundle, look no further than the To Every Season Bundle!  This one has something for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Christmas and Thanksgiving.  And THIS is a punch bundle, too!  Loves me some punches!! 🙂

Also giving you multi-holiday options is the Tags Tags Tags Bundle!

Okay – if the Spooktacular Bash suite isn’t enough Halloween for you…here’s a wonderfully wicked word die – featured in the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle!

And also in the Halloween theme…check out the uber-cute Boo To You stamp set.  And…there’s GOOGLE-Y EYES!!

Now – I’m not usually a google-y eye person, but…I fully intend to get these and this set!!

Next up in the holiday line-up…New Year’s!  There’s the Cheers To That bundle…

…Sip Sip Hooray – with matching and bundled Sip & Celebrate Dies!

Hang with me – almost there!

We’ve got a couple of truly fun Kits for you!  First up…the All-Inclusive Joy Of Giving Tag Kit! There’s a 17-piece stamp set and even a Poppy Parade Ink Spot and an Acrylic Block.  What a WONDERFUL GIFT for someone (or for yourself!)!!

And there’s the countdown Advent Calendar Project kit, as well!  This one is not all-inclusive, so you’ll need to purchase the “basics” and the Christmas Countdown stamp set separately!  But look what you’ll make!! 🙂

Last up – we’ve got a couple of sweet Host Sets.  Remember that Host sets can only be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards – whcih you can earn either by hosting a workshop or placing an individual order with at least $150 in retail sales!  You could select the Greatest Part of Christmas…

…or the Holiday Haul stamp set!

Stampin’ Up! has also brought back the Be a Difference Maker stamp set for the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  This one is the gorgeous Nature’s Beauty set and for every set purchased, SU! will give $3 to mental health organizations across the country!

PHEW!  That’s a LOT of cool stuff in just 63 pages, isn’t it?  And…folks – this isn’t even ALL the goodies in the catalog!  I cannot WAIT for you to see it in person and begin the true ooh-ing and aah-ing!!

So – to that end, you’re going to want to be sure that YOU are on my list to receive a 2019 Holiday Catalog!  I’ll be ordering them on Thursday and then mailing them out quick as I can get them!  If you’ve ordered from me in the past year (or you’re a member of my Host Club!) – you’re good to go!  If not – head over to my Online Store and place at least a $50 order (which will also have the added bennie of earning you a $5 Bonus Days coupon code to spend in August!) and assure your spot on my Mailing List!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek!

Hey ya’ll – well, it’s Friday again!  Looking forward to a weekend.

Will this be the LAST weekend I look forward to?  Since…by this time next week I’ll be mere hours away from being retired?

A good friend told me that – even though she’s retired – she still works during the week – and uses the weekends for chores and fun.

Will I do that?

I don’t know – it doesn’t seem to be the way to alleviate the “Sunday evening blues”, now does it?  I think I want to get to the point where I have to look at my watch to see what day of the week it is!

I guess we’ll see which way it ends up, won’t we?  In the meantime…HAPPY FRIDAY! 🙂

I thought this would be a super good day to bring you some looks at the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  🙂

Now – sorry! – I can’t actually show you pictures of the INSIDE of the catalog.  But I CAN share some pictures of the SAMPLES that are inside the catalog.  So…close! 😉

I thought what I’d do is start with some bundles and suites – there are 25 Bundles (stamp set and dies/punch sets) in this catalog.  Those are wonderful cuz you get a quick 10% savings right off the top!  That means there’s a lot to look at – so….we’ll do about half today and the rest tomorrow!

First up – we’ve got the Toile Tidings Suite – which includes some beautiful DSP and wrapping paper (yes – thinner and 2′ x 3′ in size!).  There are two bundles in this suite: The Toile Christmas Bundle and the Tidings All Around Bundle.

The Tidings All Around Bundle includes the All-Around Wreath Dies – which also coordinates with a Fall-ish stamp set called Seasonal Wreaths.

Next up – we’ve got the So Many Stars Bundle with the So Many Stars Stamp set and Stitched Stars Dies!

I HATE plaid!

Said no one….EVER!

I love plaid and I LOVE the Wrapped in Plaid Suite (and so will you!).  The Designer Series Paper is a handy 6″ x 6″ and has plaid on one side and not-plaid-Christmas-themed designs on the other!  The Perfectly Plaid Bundle includes the stamp set by the same name and the most wunnermus new Pine Tree Punch!

There’s another bundle in that suite called…Peaceful Boughs.  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  You KNOW how I feel about pine trees/boughs/cones!  The Peaceful Boughs stamp set works perfectly with the bundled Beautiful Boughs Dies!


If you liked the Curvy Keepsake Framelits from the past – hang on to your socks!  The Let It Snow Suite includes the Snowman Season Bundle…

…and the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle – with a stamp set and the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies (unlike the previous set – you’ll only have to cut a single piece to create the box – not two!).

The Night Before Christmas Suite includes the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and bundled Jolly Season Dies.  And this suite has the super-cool Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and coordinating Cards & Envelopes (see them in that second picture?)!

One Moose.  Two Mooses….moosies?  Regardless…check out the Merry Moose Bundle with a MERRY MOOSE PUNCH!!!

Here’s the Shine Bright Bundle – with beautiful stars and the Stitched Brightly Dies!

If you’re a fan of non-traditional Christmas colors – think blues and coppers – you’re going to be head-over for the Brightly Gleaming Suite!  With its Christmas Gleaming and bundled Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (yep – TWO punches in the pack) – you’ll be all set!

Now.  Here’s a new bundle that has a really innovative stamp design – that I can’t wait to get my hands on!  The Cup of Christmas stamp set is a photopolymer set with TWO-SIDED stamps!  Stamp one side…

…clean it off and turn it over (as in upside down!) on your block…

…and ink/stamp the reverse image!

Then cut the images with the matching Cup of Cheer Dies!  Cool beans!

Finn likes to hang with his dad in the shop on nice cool-ish summer days like we’ve had.

Chillaxin….

…or is he guarding??

What is that???  Do you see it??

Wayne and I never saw a thing.

That’s how “they” get you, you know.

Thank goodness he was there to warn the boogers away!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Incentive Trip Cruising the Greek Isles and a 2019 Holiday Sneak Peak!

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!  Are you impressed that I’m able to track hawmp day???  Or…ANY day at all??!

I sure am!  Between the time zone differences and changes – and the almost total lack of my “normal” day-triggers…I’m amazed that I know if it’s Christmas or Tuesday!

Speaking of Christmas – yesterday before our shore excursion to Santorini, we did some make-and-takes using the new Most Wonderful Time stamp set and Product Medley.

Remember that one?

   

Stampin’ Up! pretty much took over the Tides dining room.  They’re going to be vaccuming up Dimensional covers for a long time! 🙂

We all used part of our Product Medleys and our new stamp sets and made three fun and quick Christmas cards.

On the way out to get ready for our time in Santoriini, we ran into Sara and Shawn Douglas and yes…I got a picture with them and with Amy!

Then, it was time to hit the tenders (not the spicy chicken ones – the FLOATING ones!) and make our way to shore!

We gathered in the theater and then hit the boats!

First stop – the Akrotiri Ruins!  This is an archaeological site dating back 3600 years!  It’s really quite amazing – they built a city with buildings 3 – 4 stories tall.  With rain gutters and water control systems.  With toilets!  And centers of commerce.  Here are just a few pictures – I’ll post the rest of them over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page in the next few days!

Apparently, in all the excavation that has taken place, they’ve found no bones at all – neither human nor animal.  Which means they got everytone out before the volcano did its thing!

Our guide was a Greek archaeologist who really knew his stuff – and had a great way of sharing it with us!  The only issue for me was that he sounded a lot like the father in the My Big Fat Greek Wedding movies – so I kept expecting him to tell me how the ancient Greeks used Windex for everything! LOL!

When we were done with the ruins, we rode over to Oia (pronounced Eee-uh).  It’s the home of the most-likely-to-be-found-in-a-picture of Santorini cathedral.  You’ll recognize it!

And this is the home of the iconic white-washed homes, apartments and hotels seen perched on the cliffs of the caldera.

Oh.  And gelato!  We found a wonderful little taverna with pizza and gelato.  I totally expected the cast of Mamma Mia to pop out at any moment!

We wound up in Fira – the capitol of Santorini and rode the tram down to the tenders.  There’s home-sweet-home on the right!

We got ourselves to Wayne’s and my cabin – which is on the back and perfectly positioned to see the famous Santorini sunset.  We couldn’t have positioned the ship better ourselves!

Not long after sunset, the Captain spun the ship around and we headed out of the caldera on our way to our next stop!

Tomorrow (well….today!) – Mykonos!! 🙂

I’ll get all the pictures uploaded on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page as quick as my internet-at-sea will allow!

Hope you’re enjoying the virtual travel!!

Stampin’ Up! A Mosaic Mood Sneak Peek Thank You!

Happy Friday, y’all!  All things being equal…I should be on the road by the time this hits your inbox.

Fingers, toes and eyes crossed that the predicted rain didn’t materialize!

My card today uses the pretty Memorable Mosaic stamp set and coordinating Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP.  Plus a new punch (whoo-hoo for new punches!!) called the Timeless Label Punch that will be bundled with the stamp set when the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live on 4 May.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! It Starts With Art Sneak Peek!

Good Monday, my peeps!  WHY is it a GOOD Monday and not a BLAH Monday?  Cuz….it’s probably going to be my last one in Maryland!

Please notice I did not say WILL be my last one.  I have no wish to anger the Flight Gods.  They’re a vindictive group, don’t ya know??  Let’s just say I am cautiously optimistic. That shouldn’t get their backs up… 😉

My card today is a clean-and-simple number (well – it is for ME!) using a sweet little new set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog called It Starts With Art and the bundled Arts & Crafts Dies.  And this suite – called Follow Your Art (all of which is available on 4 June!) – includes a fun embossing folder called Button Button and some Follow Your Art DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a Whisper White panel that I ran thru the Big Shot in the new Button Button Embossing Folder (which customers will be able to pick up on 4 June – which is smack around corner!) then matted on Blushing Bride for the card front.

The angled panel is from the Follow Your Art DSP also matted on Blushing Bride and then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using one of the pretty edgelits from the Arts & Crafts Dies, I cut a strip from some Calypso Coral cardstock.  With Liquid Glue, I adhered a couple of pieces of the strip to the card front – tucking them under the edge of the popped-up angled panel.

I stamped the sentiment from It Starts With Art in Pacific Point on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die.  I used Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional to add it over the point of the angled DSP.

I pulled out the new Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit and adhered a couple of felt embellishments in Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana.  Then I tied a double-length little bow of Calypso Coral Linen Thread (from the kit) thru the top of one of the Silver Trinkets (the kit includes 6 of these little beauty’s – they’re heart shaped and say “Made With Love” on them!).  I adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue to the Crushed Curry felt flower – and the card front was done!

For the inside, I cut another of the Arts & Crafts Dies edgelits – this one looks like a row of buttons! – from a piece of Follow Your Art DSP, and adhered it across the bottom of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Calypso Coral card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another row of Follow Your Art DSP “buttons” across the front…

…and I adhered some more of that paper on the envelope flap, too!

Et Voila!  This Follow Your Art DSP is fun and creative and….artsy!…don’t you think?  I love the It Starts With Art stamp set and the bundled Arts & Crafts Dies make it easy to cut out lots of fun shapes – as well as the stamped images!   I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Ballad Sneak Peek For a Friend

Morning, all!  Happy weekend!  Are you all on your way to see Avengers Endgame?  I am NOT – not cuz I don’t want to (I most desperately DO!) – but because there’s barely a ticket to be had!  One of the guys went to the special early release showing on Thursday night – and he gave it two thumbs up.  I’m really hoping to go next weekend!

One little admin note before we get to the card – I will NOT be doing my FB Live tonight! I have a previous engagement and won’t be around.  So…we’ll get together TOMORROW night – Sunday, at 7 pm Eastern.  Okey dokey?  Hopefully the hotel internet will cooperate.  If not – take heart…in theory I’ll be home in a couple of weeks and we won’t have to worry about sharing bandwidth with everyone ELSE trying to stream their videos!

Okay – let’s get it, shall we?  My card today is yet another Sneak Peek (I can’t help it very much – all these new goodies are just sitting there BEGGING to be played with!  Who am I to deny them??).  This one uses the so-pretty Bird Ballad suite (coming on 4 June) – take a look-see:

This layout is courtesy of this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

And – as a little reminder, here’s the Bird Ballad Suite…

I started with some of the beautiful flower-and-bird strewn paper from the Bird Ballad DSP (available on 4 June) and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front.  I wrapped some Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon (from the coming-soon Perennial Essence Suite) around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Next up, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Free As A Bird sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White square.  Above it, I added the bird-on-a-branch image, also in Tuxedo Black.

I matted the square on Daffodil Delight and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the bird-and-branch image again in Tuxedo Black.  Using my Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, I colored the image.  Then I fussy cut it. 🙂

I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (it’s me – so…I used a bunch!) and popped the colored birds over top of the black-and-white image.

I tied a bow from the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Free As A Bird sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White.  Then I added some flowers and leaves in Tuxedo Black sort of scattered all over.  I stamped the images a couple of times without re-inking.  Then I used my Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends to color the flowers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Free As A Bird flowers and leaves on the front…

…and I added more of the pretty Bird Ballad DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This whole gorgeous Bird Ballad suite just screams SPRING, doesn’t it?  The images and beautiful sentiments in the Free As A Bird stamp set coordinate perfectly with the Bird Ballad DSP.  And – watch for those uber-cool Stitched Nested Labels dies!  Go ahead – just add this one to your wish list!  You know you’re going to get it!  Hope you like!
