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! Sunday Video Sneak Peek and a Sticky Sweet Ordering Special!

Good Sunday morning, y’all!  Hope you’re having a good weekend!

We went to the StampNStorage sale up north of Atlanta yesterday.  I bought a few things – that I probably don’t need, but…SALE.  Hello?!?  And – we picked it all up and brought it home with us.  So now there’s a need for a slight re-arrangement of my stamping spot!  Will be getting on that today!

Tonight, we’ll have a little live FB video – I’ll be on an hour earlier than usual at 7pm Eastern so that I’ll be ready for our Team Meeting at 8!  We’re going to make a clean and simple card with the new Springtime Foils DSP (SAB second release – available on 16 Feb) and a little help from the SAB Amazing You stamp set and matching Celebrate You Thinlits.  Here’s a sneaky peek:

I hope you’ll be able to join me – remember it’s at 7pm eastern!!  Here’s a link right to my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page – see you then! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Sweethearts, Baskets and Sunshine Wishes Love Note

Happy Friday, y’all!  The week is drawing to a close and, for me, it’s doing it from Huntsville!  Found out on Wednesday that I had to come over here the next day to get my computer updated and pick up my new work phone.  So – typing this post on Thursday evening from my hotel in Huntsville.  Will head home Friday afternoon!

Got some fun plans for tomorrow – a friend and I are going to a StampNStorage pop-up sale on the north side of Atlanta!  20% off everything AND 30% off Magnetic cards!  And we can walk right out with them.  Whoo-hoo!  

Now – my card for you today has no stamping!  A little bit of ink from a Stampin’ Blend – but…no stamps were inked in the making of this card!  Just some pretty Painted With Love DSP, the Sweetheart TIEF (Annual Catalog), the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (be prepared to see a lot of this one, y’all!  And – BE READY TO GET IT NEXT WEEK!!) and some die cuts from the pretty Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Blends, Basket Weaves and Lovely Wishes

Happy happy Hawwmp day, y’all!  Mid-week on our way to another Continuing Resolution and/or government shutdown.  Whattheheckaretheydoing?!?  Sheesh.  I think THEIR pay needs to stop if they don’t get it together.  

So.  There.  My rant for the day.

Before I get going on the card for today, please be sure you make note of the impending Fast Fuse sale – it starts tomorrow and is a Buy-a-Fast-Fuse and get two refills free SALE!  And it’s only while supplies last – so…be ready to hop to in the morning!

Now.  For my card.  I used a technique that I saw in a Stampin’ Up! video (you can see it right here) to make a pretty background.  The Lovely Wishes stamp set lent it’s pretty flowers for the embossing.  And – if you look close…you’ll see a tiny sneak peek of the new Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF (which will be available to customers on 16 Feb!).  Take a look-see:

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! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Hold Onto Hope Sneak Peek Sympathy Card

Good morning, y’all!  Welcome to the last weekend of 2017!!  Yikes!

Sadly, for some folks in my extended circle of friends, this hasn’t been a great week.  And, I need a Sympathy card to send.  So, I pulled out a new bundle in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  The lovely Hold Onto Hope stamp set, bundled with the Cross of Hope Framelits, is a gorgeous set, perfect for the occasion.  Especially when combined with a sentiment from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.  Take a look-see:

As you can maybe see, I also broke out my package of new Brusho Colors! 🙂

I started with a piece of Shimmery White card stock.  Using the pin-hole-in-the-top method, I shook a little bit of the Prussian Blue around the outer edges of the panel.  In the middle, I sprinkled some Yellow.  I lightly spritzed the panel with water using my Stampin’ Spritzer.  I let the panel dry naturally, dabbing off any water that pooled on the edges.  Once it was completely dry, I cut it down to the finished size for the front of my card.

I inked up the pretty floral spray image in the Hold Onto Hope set (avail 3 Jan) with Versamark and stamped it twice on the panel.  I sprinkled the images with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them with my Heat Tool.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Island Indigo mat.

For the cross, I cut a Wood Textures DSP solid cross with the die in the Cross of Hope Framelits and a Silver Foil detailed Cross with a second die.  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

I used some new Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon (3 Jan) to drape around the Cross.  I stuck a Glue Dot in the center of the Cross and used that to start the drape.  I put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the Cross and popped it onto the card front – running the tails of the ribbon behind it as I stuck it on.  Over the center of the ribbon, I used another Glue Dot to adhere a new Petal Passion Embellishment (3 Jan) over the top of the Organza Ribbon.

For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers in Island Indigo on a strip of Shimmery White.  I snipped banner ends with my Paper Snips and edged it with my Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I popped it over the Cross with Liquid Glue and a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Shimmery White, I stamped the pretty little flower from Hold Onto Hope.  I colored the stamp with my Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped it on the card stock.  Then I cut it with the die in the Cross of Hope Framelits.  I used Liquid Glue and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere it over the Cross.  I added one Pearl Basic Jewel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align and stamp the sentiment from Hold Onto Hope in Island Indigo on a Shimmery White panel.  Then I repeated the flower…

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Island Indigo mat.  Before going further, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and stamped the little corner image from Hold Onto Hope in Basic Gray Archival Ink in the corners (front and inside) of my Basic Gray card base.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the inner liner into the card base.

I decided to add a little more to the card front – so I cut a couple pieces off a Delicate White Doily and adhered them to the back of the card front – then I popped it on the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added more Basic Gray Hold Onto Hope corners and flowers…

…and I added a little more Wooden Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how the Brusho background turned out, don’t you?  I think it looks serene and sort of…heavenly!  And I loved this Hold Onto Hope bundle the very first moment I saw it in the 2018 Occasions Catalog!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix  

Today the Dad went up to NC to do some work across the weekend.  So we all helped him get loaded and ready to go!

Finn had a doggy-dilemma.

Stay with Mom?  Go with Dad?

Difficult choice for a little kid – one who loves both his parents!  

But…a road trip?!?

In the end, he made the selfless decision to stay here and protect me.

So…he bravely said good-bye to the Dad…

…and promptly forgot all about him while we worked the gates for the horses.

He’s a go-with-the-flow kind of guy – focused on the right here, right now.  Not the woulda-coulda-shoulda’s.

We should all be so smart!

Stampin’ Up! December Paper Pumpkin Reveal!

Happy HAWWWWMP Day, y’all!  Hope your last week (only 5 shopping days remain!) before Christmas is going well!  I just have a few odds and ends to tidy up and I’ll be ready to roll!  We’ll pick up the Prime Rib on Saturday – yummmmmmm!!  I have the world’s best – and most fool-proof! – way to cook the rib….I got hungry just typing this!

For today, I wanted to give you a look at the December Paper Pumpkin kit.  Now – I don’t love every kit that comes to the door.

Shocked that I’d say so?

Think it thru – what are the odds that every single person who subscribes to Paper Pumpkin would LOVE every single kit they receive?  We’re talking millions of folks, here…folks!  In the immortal words of Sara Lee – you can’t please all of the people all of the time!  So – we’re bound to occasionally get one we’re not head over heels for.

But. THIS one!  This one is really cool!!  Take a look-see at the Flora and Flutter kit:

 I sat down to make my kit today and was done in just about an hour – with 8 cards and matching (and decorated!) envelopes!

Probably hard to see – but that’s Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper behind the lovely flowers and leaves.

The color scheme for this one is Crumb Cake, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral!

The kit is totally inclusive (except for the acrylic block – you’ll get that with your first month’s kit!) and this one even has pre-cut strips of tear-and-tape adhesive!

I did go a little beyond the basic card – stamping the inside of the card – with Crumb Cake leaves, Calypso Coral flowers and Berry Burst butterflies – all from the included stamp set…

And – you know me – no nekkid envelopes…

This is a really fun kit – and it has an awesome stamp set with it!!

Terrible picture.  Sorry.  You have Happy Birthday, Congratulations, Thank You, Hello and Have a Great Day.  On top of the wonderful butterfly stamp and the leaves and flowers!

Paper Pumpkin is a great gift idea, y’all – and since we’re getting down to the last minute – let me give you a gifting idea!

A Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription makes for a wonderful and thoughtful gift for the holidays for the crafter (or budding crafter!) on your list!  If you’ve got any questions about giving Paper Pumpkin I’d be happy to answer them…and I can even send you a printable gift certificate that you can fill out and wrap up for the recipient!  Check out the different Prepaid options right here in my Online Store!

So – if you’re a subscriber – have a great time assembling your Flora and Flutter kit!  If you need a gift…let me know!

Speaking of gifts – ask me about Gift Certificates!  I’ll be happy to hook you up!

Have a great day, y’all!

TTFN

Only a Couple Spots Left in My Next Online Host Club – Let me Know if You Want One of Them…

 


Sale-A-Bration is Coming and that’s a GREAT time to get Host Benefits!

 

Would you like to receive host benefits ? Would you like to build up your Stampin’ Up! tool chest a little at a time?  Well then – an Online Host Club might be the perfect solution for you!

My next club will start up on 3 Jan (coincidently with the arrival of the 2018 Occasions Catalog and the start of Sale-A-Bration!) and I have a few openings available.

How does it work?  Well – at a glance…

You sign up for a 6 month term and agree to:

  • Place a $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Place your order by the 20th of each month
  • Use the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

And what do you get in return?

  • Based on a random draw, you’ll be the “host” for one of the six months
  • In your month, you’ll be guaranteed a workshop total of $150 – meaning no less than $15 in Stampin’ Rewards for you to spend!
  • In your Host month, your order ships FREE!
  • When you place a host club order – which you’ll do each month – you’ll get DOUBLE peppermints for that order!  So – if all you did was place your $25 order for the six months, you’d end up with 12 Peppermints.  Most folks end up with all 16 (and then some) – and earn a free $40 gift!
  • At the end of the club, you’ll get to choose a free stamp set up to $20!
  • And – you get first dibs on the next Online Club!
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects – and access to all the past tutorials on my  website!

Finn Fan Fix  

The past couple of mornings have been cool and foggy.

My favorite kind of weather – it reminds me of growing up in Southern CA.  I loved that coastal fog!

Of course – I was a kid, so had no appreciation for the hazards of driving in such soup – I simply loved it – the muted sounds – the blurred…everything. 🙂

Finn and I did our morning runs in the fog.

I love how our pastures look in the fog…

…and I love the surprise of white-tails flipped in disdain at my goofy little dog “hunter”…

See them?

…I think I see ’em, Mom….

…yep…I definitely see those boogers!!…

He fancies himself quite the fierce predator. 

He’s my…wait for it…”sunshine….on a foooggggyyyy daaaaayyyyy….”!!

You’re welcome. 🙂
