Stampin’ Up! Your Strength Waves of Inspiration Sneak Peek

Good morning, happy Valentine’s Day and…happy post Super-Bowl Day!  I saw that someone had floated to the football people that the Super Bowl should be on Saturday.  So that everyone who eats a billion wings, twelve pizzas, nachos and some pigs-in-a-blanket (Oh – and drinks a lot of beer and stuff) can take the next day to recover.

So far that appears to not be getting any traction but…it kind of makes sense to me. Why ISN’T the Super Bowl on Saturday?  🤔🤔🤔

Wayne and I DID watch – I decided to root for LA (so I was happy that they won!).  Wayne was pulling for the Bengals.  Probably because I wasn’t!  But…as I mentioned, I was really more interested in the commercials! 😉 Apparently, approximately EVERY car builder on the planet is working on electric vehicles!  🤷‍♀️

My card today uses the coming-soon Waves of Inspiration Bundle with some of the gorgeous Blue Foils Specialty Paper – ALL coming on 1 March (or…get them TODAY if you join the team!)  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Blooms Sneak Peek with Such Good News!

Hello again and happy Monday!  I don’t know about y’all – but…four-day weekends really throw me for a loop. I have trouble remembering what day it is ANYway.  Having a holiday on Thursday just puts me in a spin! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

My card today is simple – but super sweet (she says modestly!).  I used the new Heart & Home DSP and the Honeybee Home stamp set – with the bundled Honeybee Blooms Die set (all coming on 4 Jan in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog.  Unless…you JOIN the team – this is a GREAT time to do that!  THEN you can get them on…Wednesday, 1 December!).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

I started by matting a piece of the pretty gray woodgrain paper from the Heart & Home DSP on Highland Heather for the card front.

Using the next-to-smallest of the skinny dies in the Stitched Rectangle Die set, I cut a piece of the Misty Moonlight paper from Heart & Home and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a length of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon (part of the Heart & Home Suite and available on 4 Jan) across the card front.

I used the two dies in the Honeybee Blooms die set to cut a Highland Heather and a Misty Moonlight flower- which I then adhered on the left side, over the ribbon, with Liquid Glue.

I tied a simple bow from Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the uber-sweet Honeybee Home sentiment in Highland Heather.  Then I cut it with the smallest skinny Stitched Rectangle Die.

Using double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the sentiment over the top of the ribbon and the bow.

Finally, I added a few Basic Gray dots from the new Classic Matte Dots (from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini) and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped two of the flowers from Honeybee Home in Highland Heather and Misty Moonlight.  I nestled a small Basic Gray Classic Matte Dot in the foliage.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Honeybee Home flowers on the front in Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather…

…and more of the Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – this is going to be SUCH a popular Suite!  This amazing Honeybee Home stamp set and bundled Honeybee Blooms dies are so beautiful!  Add the floral and woodgrain beauty of the Heart & Home DSP and… it’s a winner for sure!
