Stampin’ Up! Ever Eden’s Garden Sneak Peek Macrame Hello!

Happy Monday (please excuse the oxymoron!).  Hope that the week ahead looks good!  We’ve got nice – if a little warm! – weather ahead so that’s good!  We’ve been able to open the windows at night – which is lovely.  And the leaves are starting to change – the dogwood next to the garage is in full Fall regalia!

Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Shadows Sneak Peek

Morning, y’all – and happy Monday.

Sorry if that’s still an oxymoron for you!  For me?  Monday…Friday…it’s all kind of running together!  I mark the week passing by…newsletters on Tuesday and my house being clean on Friday! Some might think that’s easier but…sometimes I need one of those Clocks for Retirees thingys – you know – with days of the week instead of the time?!?  😂😂😂

Now – my card today gives you a sneaky peek at something you’re going to be able to get for FREE during the next round of Sale-A-Bration (3 Aug – 30 Sept).  It’s called the Summer Shadows die set and it works with the gorgeous Shaded Summer stamp set in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!  Yes – you read me right – a DIE set.  For FREE.  That works with a favorite stamp set! 😳😳😳  And I pulled in some of my fave DSP (ON SALE thru 31 July!!) – the beautimous You’re a Peach DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with some striped paper from You’re A Peach that I matted on Evening Evergreen for the card front.

Then I embossed a strip of Basic White in the new Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder (available on 3 Aug) and matted it on Evening Evergreen.

I adhered the matted, embossed panel to the card front with Liquid Glue, at an angle.  Then I used my Paper Trimmer to cut the excess from the sides.

I cut some pieces from the coming-soon Summer Shadows die set…

I cut solid (bottom) flowers in Pale Papaya and more detailed “tops” in Calypso Coral.  And some leaves – bottoms in Soft Succulent and tops in Evening Evergreen.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the pieces and parts together.  (I think you can figure which pieces went where and with what!).

I placed a piece of Basic White into my Stamparatus and then used the Marker-to-Rubber inking technique to color – and stamp – the image from Shaded Summer.  I colored the flowers with my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker and the leaves with the Evening Evergreen marker.   The Stamparatus is really pivotal to this technique – it lets you stamp multiple times – over and over – all in the same place! 😉  I colored the innards of the image with my Light Pale Papaya and Light Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.

I used the matching die in the Summer Shadows set to cut the stamped image, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Shaded Summer in Evening Evergreen on Basic White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle die.

I adhered my leaf with Liquid Glue – then added the larger die cut flower.

Then I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added the final die cut cardstock flower with a little Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional – then I added some Soft Succulent gems from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Shaded Summer sentiment in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White panel.  Then I placed the panel back in the Stamparatus and added the floral from the front – using my Stampin’ Write Markers and Light Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.  I added a single Soft Succulent gem by the sentiment.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and into my Calypso Coral card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Shaded Summer image on the front…

…and more of the You’re a Peach DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I have been a big fan of the Shaded Summer set from the git-go and each time I pulled it out thought to myself “Self – wouldn’t it be cool to have a die set for this?!?”.  It’s like Stampin’ Up! just KNOWS me!!  And YOU guys – cuz I know y’all love die sets, too!  Summer Shadows will be a $100-level reward available for you to pick during Sale-A-Bration!  And – you KNOW that you can save 15% on the gorgeous You’re A Peach DSP if you grab a pack before the DSP Sale ends on 31 July!

I hope you like!

And – not for nuthin’ – everyone who orders one or more of my Special Bundles can select their Sale-A-Bration rewards.  Like…the Summer Shadows set!  Just sayin’! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias 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 Celebrate Summer!  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!

For me – summer means picking and eating juicy raspberries and Sweetheart tomatoes right from the vine and…daily inspections of the vegetable garden for bugs – Japanese beetles and…the dreaded and really-seriously-ugly hornworms! 😉

THAT didn’t seem like a very good creative inspiration for a card – so…I went with the way nicer meaning for me…flowers!  I’ve got flowers blooming and bees buzzing.   To that end – I decided to use the Delicate Dahlias stamp set – one of the sweet products you’ll be able to pick for FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration (Aug – Sep).  I also used the new Timber 3D Embossing Folder – from the new Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek Triple Panel Card

‘Sup, y’all??  Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week is going well!  Our weather has been…gorgeous!  Warm enough to have the house open all day and night.  Bright sun – the flowers are blooming and I think the strawberries are trying to do their thing!  We planted on Monday and the patio is really starting to be a pretty spot!  And it smells heavenly! 🙂

My card today features its own flowers and is another sneak peek of the Quiet Meadow stamp set – didn’t even need to use the amazing bundled Meadow Dies!  Get this – and the Pansy Petals DSP – just ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!  Whoo-hoo!! Once you have it in hand – I hope you’ll use it to make today’s card. Take a look-see:

The inspiration for this card came from the FUSION challenge this week!

I started with some pretty Pansy Petals DSP in gingham Pale Papaya that I matted on Pale Papaya for the card front.

Next, I cut a narrow panel of Basic White and placed it in my Stamparatus.  I positioned the sweet wildflower image from Quiet Meadow in the Stamparatus and then used the Marker-to-Stamp technique to color the stamp in Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen using those Stampin’ Write Markers.

I cut the panel into three equal sized panels and adhered them to a Pale Papaya mat.  Hint:  when doing this technique adhere the two end pieces first.  AND – I made the length of the mat an extra 1/8″ longer than usual.

Using the script image in the Quiet Meadow set – I stamped each panel with it in stamped-off-once Pale Papaya.

I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Quiet Meadow sentiment in Poppy Parade on Basic White and cut it with the most narrow Stitched Rectangle Die.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using a Glue Dot, I adhered a Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourish (coming on 4 May!) to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I once again used my Stamparatus to stamp the Quiet Meadow image using my Poppy Parade and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pale Papaya mat and into my Evening Evergreen card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Quiet Meadow floral on the front…

…and a little more of the Pansy Petals DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I mentioned at the start that I didn’t need the full Quiet Meadow bundle for this particular card…

…but I’m really glad I have it in my stash.  Those die cuts are AMAZING!  Check out what I did with them in a previous card right here!  I love this Quiet Meadow stamp set (and matching Meadow Dies) so much – and they’re just perfect to pair with the gorgeous, spring-y Pansy Petals DSP!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Hey Birthday Chick Bundle Sneak Peek Birthday Card

Happy Happy HAWWWWMP Day!!  Yep – it’s mid-week and you’re at the top of the hill.  It’s a downhill slide to the weekend from here! 🙂

Weekends are fun.  Everyone likes weekends!

And…new stamp sets and dies – swarming with uber-cute-and-stinkin’-adorable chickens are ALSO fun.  And everyone ALSO likes THEM!  Which means everyone is going to LOVE this new bundle that you’re going to be able to get on 2 Feb!  It’s called the Hey Birthday Chick bundle!  Now – Hey Birthday Chick is already IN the Jan- Jun 2021 Mini Catalog (page 52 if you’re looking).  But – in a couple of weeks (or…right NOW if you’re a Demonstrator or JOIN NOW!) – you’ll be able to get the Hey Birthday Chick DIES!  I’ve used this new bundle today – with some Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.  From a piece of Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP I cut two rectangles with the second-largest of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered them to the panel with Liquid Glue.

Then I pulled out the Hey Birthday Chick dies, cut a Bumble Bee sentiment (how cool is that?!?) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White (Basic White will for sure work, too!), I stamped the cute chicken and balloon image from Hey Birthday Chicken in Early Espresso.  I also stamped the balloon part on a piece of Blackberry Bliss Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Using the die in the Hey Birthday Chicken set to cut the chicken and balloon.  I fussy cut the DSP balloon and colored over the lines with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker, then popped it over the stamped balloon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored the chicken with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Using the fence die in Hey Birthday Chicken Dies I cut an Early Espresso fence.  I also cut three “feed sacks” – one each in Bumble Bee, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake.

I adhered the fence and three “feed sacks” with Liquid Glue – then popped the chicken and balloon over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I decided my chicken was a hen – and needed a hair bow – so I cut one (yes, it’s in the die set!) from the same Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP paper and stuck it in her hair with Liquid Glue.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Hey Birthday Chick image in Early Espresso ink on a piece of Whisper White (or Basic White).  I colored it with Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Combos and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.  I also stamped the image on the Dandy Garden DSP and fussy cut just the cupcake liner, which I adhered with Liquid Glue over the stamped image.  Then I stamped a second sentiment in Bumble Bee.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Mossy Meadow and Bumble Bee mats and then into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the fun chicken and cupcake image on the front…

…and more of the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  You know, I loved the Hey Chick set when it was part of 2017 Sale-A-Bration and these little guys and gals in the Hey Birthday Chick set are all similar to those guys!  And…add in the totes-adorbs Hey Birthday Chick Die set….and you’ve got a winner!

And – we’re ALSO going to see the return of Hey Chick.  With dies of its own!

I hope you like and…are adding the whole shootin’ match to your I-gotta-get-it list!!

Finn Fan Fix 

Since his arrival four years ago, we’ve taught Finn to not go into the stalls.

At all.  Whether the horses are in them or not.  For obvious reasons.

And he’s been pretty solid on it.  He does lean into the doorway some to…sniff the sniffs and see if they dropped any food.

Or….erhm…droppings. 😉

So – imagine my surprise when, as I was cleaning Cady’s stall yesterday morning, I look up to see…

Four paws in.  ALL the way in.

You can see he knows he’s been spotted.

So….

I think this is the dog equivalent of whistling!  Nothing to see here.  Just a dog.  In a stall….

Maybe she won’t be mad if I offer an obedience behavior. And be really cute.

Who knows.  It could work!!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Love You Always Treat Box Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  It’s been a busy week here – catalogs getting mailed – Catalog Pre-Order – lots going on and I’ve felt like I’ve met myself coming and going!  But…today???

Today is a GOOD DAY!  Ms. Sonya comes back today!

Did you hear the choir of Angels singing?!?  I sure did!  I am so ready!

Finny is, too!! He’s missed his friend with the Bacon Bites! 😉

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis!  In addition to the project – I gave everyone a sneak peek at my second Pre-Order from the new catalog and….the new Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine! 🙂

I made a fun little treat box using products that you’ll be able to get on 5 January in the new Jan – Jun 2021 Mini catalog and 2021 Sale-A-Bration Flyer!  The box itself is a Love You Always Treat Box – and it’s very cool!  I decorated it with Berry Blessing DSP – which will be bundled with the Berry Blessings stamp set and, as part of the 2021 Sale-A-Bration, will be available for FREE with a $100 purchase!  I also used the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and bundled Strawberry Builder Punch. – these are in the Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!

The Love You Always Treat Box goes together pretty easy – once you see it!  Do take a peek at the video and you’ll see how easy it is!

Before I assembled the box – I stamped the long side with the leaf outline image from Berry Blessings (this is the stamp set that’s bundled with the Berry Delightful DSP in the Sale-A-Bration flyer!) in Granny Apple Green.  Tip – the boxes have a “food safe” side – it’s kind of shiny.  The OTHER side – kind of matte – is the one you want on the OUTside of the box if you plan to stamp it.  Ink doesn’t dry at all well on the shiny food-safe side.  Ask me how I know?

Actually – don’t ask.  Watch the video and you’ll see! 😉

I also covered the two short ends of the box and the two long edges of the “sleeve” with some Poppy Parade-matted Berry Delightful DSP  before I assembled the box.

For the top of the box, I cut a second design of the Berry Delightful DSP  and then laid a strip of the plaid pattern at an angle across it – adhering it with Liquid Glue. I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer and matted the panel on Poppy Parade.  Hint: it’s a lot easier to decorate the top of the sleeve/box if you slide the box back into the sleeve – that makes it a little sturdier!

I wrapped a length of Daffodil Delight 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon around the diagonal DSP – securing it in back with Glue Dots.  Then I popped the panel onto the top of the box/sleeve with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To make the strawberries, I stamped the outline image from Sweet Strawberry in Poppy Parade four times on a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock and cut them with the Strawberry Builder Punch.  I folded two in half and adhered the “fold” to each of the remaining flat strawberries with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the strawberry hat leaf image from Sweet Strawberry three times in Granny Apple Green ink on Granny Apple Green cardstock and cut them with the Strawberry Builder Punch. I used Liquid Glue to adhere two of them to the tops of my strawberries.

 

I made some leaves by stamping the image from Sweet Strawberry three times in Granny Apple Green onto Granny Apple Green cardstock and punched them out.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves and the two strawberries to the top of the box.

On a piece of Daffodil Delight, I stamped the strawberry again in stamped-off-once Poppy Parade.  Then I added the Sweet Strawberry sentiment in Granny Apple Green.  I punched it with the punch and added a little strawberry hat leaf with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered it with a couple of stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Et Voila!  This Love You Always Treat Box is really cool, y’all – it’s about 2″ tall and 4″ long – so it’s got a little room for some goodies!  If you do as I suggest and put the non-food-safe side on the inside – then you’ll want to wrap your food gifts if you use it for that! 🙂

I think the Sweet Strawberry bundle – from the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog is going to be a lot of fun – and it’s REALLY fun that it totally coordinates with the Berry Blessings Bundle from the 2021 Sale-a-Bration catalog!

I hope you like – and are starting to make your list!

I mailed catalogs on Wednesday so…if you’re expecting one from me, be watching your mailboxes this weekend or Monday!  If you’re not sure if one is on the way to you – give me a holler!

I’ve got an Online Host Club starting on 1 January (just in time for the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!) and I’ve got openings.  Whoo-hoo!!!

What is an Online Host Club?  Glad you asked!

An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host!  And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time.  While earning FREE goodies!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • During Sale-a-Bration – each of your host club orders will earn you AT LEAST one Level 1 ($50 level) Sale-A-Bration reward!
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers! YEP – THIS IS NEW!!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   The launch of a new catalog and Sale-A-Bration is ALWAYS a great time to join a club!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!

Finn Fan Fix 

On Thursday morning, it was in the low 30’s.

AKA – too stinkin’ cold for me!

I pull on my sweatshirt.  Buckle up my Carhartt bibs.  Wrap my shemagh twice around my neck.  Tug my knitted cap (thanks Mom!) over my head and ears.  Zip up my insulated hoody and pull up the hood.  Pull on my gloves.

Say a sort-of-dirty word under my breath and head out.

Finn?

Just chillin’ in the….chill!  Love it, Mom – and no – I do NOT want to come in!!
