Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Sailing Home Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Well – it’s Good Friday.  Literally.

Do you have a three-day weekend?  Maybe you have today “off” instead?   By which, of course, I mean…are/will you be wearing your “weekend pajamas” or your “go to work” pajamas??  I am SURE you’ll be wearing your DRESS pajamas on Easter Sunday, right??  I know I for sure will be! 😎

Since this is pretty much business-as-usual for us, I was able to do a live YouTube video yesterday.  If you were able to join me – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I wanted another card to send as part of the Bee The Blessing Card Drive being sponsored by Stamp-N-Storage and I thought it would be good to make a couple with a more masculine feel.  So….the Come Sail Away suite called!  For the sample card – I used the DSP in Mossy Meadow colors – for the video…I did it again in Night of Navy.  Both are identical and use the Sailing Home, So Sentimental and Ornate Thanks stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

I love this modified gate-card with its belly-band, but I wanted it to be a little more traditional (and easier to display!).

So – I started with a Crumb Cake card base in my normal portrait tent-fold orientation.  The gate-fold becomes the matted card front.

I cut a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock at 5 1/4″ x 8″ and scored it along the long side at 2″ and 6″.  Then I marked each short end at 2 5/8″ and used my Paper Trimmer to cut the “gates” into points.

I cut two strips of Come Sail Away DSP, cut them both into points and adhered them to the gates with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I adhered a second design of the Come Sail Away DSP to a Mossy Meadow mat and then inside the gate-fold with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the entire panel to the front of the Crumb Cake card base with Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set multiple times in Crumb Cake ink.  Then I wrapped the strip around the card base and adhered the ends together with Liquid Glue.

The front sentiment, from So Sentimental, is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut with the larger label die in the bundled Stitched So Sweetly Die set.  Over the sentiment, in Crumb Cake, I added the Sailing Home compass.  Then I adhered the label to the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I pulled off the belly band to work on the inside.  On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped a perfect sentiment from Sailing Home in Mossy Meadow.  I added a Crumb Cake anchor and cut it with the next-to-largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Then, I adhered it on the inside with Liquid Glue – ensuring it would be hidden by the belly-band.

I replaced the belly band and added a Sail Away Trinkets anchor with a Glue Dot.  On this Mossy Meadow card, I used a double-length of Line Thread to tie a simple bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  On the Night of Navy version, I used a single-length of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine.

Just a note – I would send this card with the belly band around the just the front of the card base/gate-fold (versus around the entire card).  That let’s the recipient see the card in its best “display mode”!  😉

On the inside of the card, I added a sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I added the anchor in Crumb Cake and the compass in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Sailing Home anchor and compass on the front…

…and more Come Sail Away DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  It’s easy to lose track of the super-cool goodies in the Annual Catalog, what with Sale-A-Bration and the Jan-Jun mini, isn’t it?  But…don’t!  The Come Sail Away Suite – anchored by the Sailing Home Bundle (see what I did there?!?) – is chock-full of wonderful products that are really awesome for creating masculine projects!  The Come Sail Away DSP let me quickly make two cards – using the same stamp sets and designs…

So Sentimental with the WUNNERMUS Stitched So Sweetly Dies, melds in nicely – and, of course, there aren’t enough words for me to express how much I love the Ornate Thanks set and all the perfect sentiments it contains!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Sentimental Poppies for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the color palette for the challenge this week, I thought of the Peaceful Poppies DSP right away.  And then, I saw a cool sketch challenge and…boom!  So Sentimental and the awesome bundled Stitched So Sweetly Dies came off the shelf.  Take a look-see:

Here’s our color challenge.

And this is the sketch that gave me the “boom!” moment.  It’s from the Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a design in the Peaceful Poppies DSP and matted it on Old Olive for the card front.

I wrapped some of the Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack (get the whole suite on 1 April 2020!!) twice around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in stamped-off-twice Poppy Parade on a piece of Poppy Parade paper from the Peaceful Poppies DSP.

Again with the Stamparatus, I stamped the So Sentimental sentiment in Tuxedo Black – stamping the image multiuple times to get it good and dark.

Then I cut the image/sentiment with the next-to-largest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.  I also cut the same size from an Old Olive piece of the DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere both die cuts to the card front – keeping the sentiment panel straight and angling the “mat” die cut.

I pulled out the Peaceful Poppies Elements and chose a couple of vellum flowers and some vellum leaves.  Using Glue Dots (under the embossed portions of the velum) – I adhered the flowers.  Then I used little dabs of Liquid Glue to tuck the leaves in under the flowers.

I tied a double-loop simple bow from the Old Olive Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I added some Peaceful Poppies Sequins with little dabs of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White, using the Stamparatus.  Over the top, in stamped-off-twice Poppy Parade – I added those pretty poppies again!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and 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 more Painted Poppies on the front…

…and some more of the Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love it when several sets and bundles can come together as well as the So Sentimental bundle, Painted Poppies and Peaceful Moments sets have done in this card.  The Peaceful Poppies DSP is the perfect tie-er-together-er, don’t you think?!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Positive Thoughts for Healing

MikemikemikemikeMIKE!!  Guess what day it ISSSSSSS???!

Yep.  You got it.  It’s HAWWWMP DAY!!! 🙂

And – for HAWWMP Day, I’ve got an elegant get well card.  Which seems sort of apropos these days, huh?

I started with the Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp, then added some So Sentimental and Positive Thoughts sentiments and images.  And I used their matching dies, too!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

The color palette hails from the TGIF color challenge.

And – I’m also playing along with the Global-Design-Project theme…

…and – finally! – the Word Week challenge at Just Us Girls.

I started by creating the background with the beautiful Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp.  Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the image in Versamark Ink, then I sprinkled it with Black Shimmer Embossing Powder and heated it with my Heat Tool.

I cut the panel down to my finished card front size and adhered it to an Old Olive mat with Liquid Glue.

I stamped and embossed the image again on another piece of Whisper White, then I fussy cut the large middle rose.  Using my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Combo, I colored the image – being careful to avoid the embossed portions of the image as much as possible.

I wrapped a piece of Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

Then I popped the fussy cut flower on to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Stamparatus, I used the Marker-to-Rubber technique to color and stamp the So Sentimental sentiment with my Old Olive and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I cut the sentiment with one of the smaller labels in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I used a Dimensional and some Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

I tied a little bit of metallic thread around the Satin Ribbon where I wanted my bow – which drew the ribbon up a little.  When I adhered a bow tied with the same ribbon over the thread (with a Glue Dot) – it helped to make it look more “real” and less….”faux”! 🙂

Using the Nature’s Thoughts Die set, I cut some Old Olive leaves and Lovely Lipstick butterflies.  I tucked the leaves under the fussy cut rose and sentiment and added the butterflies, all with Liquid Glue.  A few green gems from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack finished off the front of the card.

On the inside, I used the leaf image from Positive Thoughts to stamp a few times in Old Olive on a Whisper White panel – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  Then I added a couple of Lovely Lipstick butterflies flitting here and there!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Positive Thoughts leaves and butterflies on the front…

…and a few more on the envelope flap, too.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is that Breathtaking Bouquet stamp?!  Especially embossed in Shimmer Black.  I am such a fan of the Positive Thoughts stamp set and the Coordinating Product Nature’s Thoughts Dies – LOVE them.  And speaking of loving…So Sentimental and the awe-mazing Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Hello?!?  Those dies are so useful – they’ll be your go-to, I promise!  I hope you like!

After I turned the girls out the other day, I headed back in to clean the barn.

And discovered my billy goat just hanging out on the outdoor storage box.

No.  I have no idea why.  Totally volunteered.  🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Stampin’ Up! Sweetly Sentimental Lily for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I pulled out my gorgeous Lily Impressions DSP (which, OBTW – you can get for FREE in the Sale-A-Bration flyer with a $50 purchase) and paired it up with (also FREE) the matching Lovely Lily stamp stamp set ($50 level reward) and Lily Pad Dies ($100 level reward).   To those pretty images, I added a So Sentimental sentiment on a Stitched So Sweetly die cut label.  Take a look-see:

Here’s our color palette!

And – since a good sketch challenge is a great way to get some inspiration, I borrowed mine from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches!

It also fits perfectly with the photo inspiration from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge!

I started with a mostly-Bermuda Bay piece of the Lily Impressions DSP that I embossed in the Stone 3D Embossing Folder (also FREE during Sale-A-Bration, bundled with the Power of Hope stamp set!) and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

Using my Stitched Shapes dies, I cut two squares from another design in the pack and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

From a third design – mostly in Lovely Lipstick – I cut a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

With an Oval Stitched Shapes die, I cut a Basic Black oval, embossed it in the Stone 3D Folder and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, from the So Sentimental set, is stamped in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut with another label die from Stitched So Sweetly.

I cut two short lengths of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon and used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere them to the black oval.  Then I popped the sentiment on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then it was time to pull out the Lovely Lily stamp set and it’s matching Lily Pad Dies. HINT:  the Lovely Lily stamp set is a photopolymer REVERSIBLE set.  Which means that one side of the stamp is the detailed side – and you just have to flip it over on your block to stamp the “fill” image!  Cool, huh? 🙂

I created a flower by stamping the small flower detailed image in Lovely Lipstick on some of the Lovely Lipstick Lily Impressions DSP and cutting it with the die in the Lily Pad Die set.  I used a second die to cut a detailed flower from Lovely Lipstick card stock.  Finally – I made a leaf by stamping the leaf in Granny Apple Green on Granny Apple Green card stock and cutting it out.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the three pieces together to form the flower!

Before adhering the flower to the card front – I wound some Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine around my hand several times and twisted it into a figure eight.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere it to the card front.

Then I used Liquid Glue and a couple of Black Dimensionals to adhere the flower over top.

A single Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot finished off the card front!

On the inside, I first stamped the detailed flower image in Lovely Lipstick in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  I cleaned the stamp and turned it over, inked the “solid” side in Lovely Lipstick and stamped it one time on my scrap paper.  Then I stamped it into the flower image for the “fill”.   I made a sticky note mask by cutting the flower die from the top of a sticky note – and laid it over top.  Then I stamped the detailed lily pad image in full strength Granny Apple Green and the fill in stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green.

Phew – that was a LOT of words for 4 stamps, huh??  🙂

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another flower and lily pad on the front…

And a bit more Lily Impressions DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  The So Sentimental stamp set and bundled Stitched So Sweetly dies are a wonderful complement to the Lovely Lily images, Lily Pad die cut flowers and beautiful Lily Impressions DSP, don’t you think?  And – it doesn’t hurt that all the Lily goodies are FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Bee So Sweetly Sentimental for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

The color challenge really focused my attention on the Golden Honey Specialty DSP (which is a Level 1 – $50 reward in Sale-A-Bration.  That’s code for FREE with a $50 order!) and I added the coordinating Honey Bee Bundle and the So Sentimental Bundle to round it all out.  Take a look-see:

What – oh WHAT?!? – could the color challenge possibly BEE?!?!

I also grabbed a layout from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started with the Black and Gold striped paper in the Golden Honey Specialty DSP and matted it on Basic Black for the card front.

I used the honeycomb die in the Detailed Bee Die Set to cut a Gold Glimmer Paper honeycomb and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I matted a smaller piece of a second design (black with gold honeycomb) on Basic Black and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I took a final design (white with black leaves and bees) and adhered a smaller rectangle with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped the beehive image from the Honey Bee stamp set in Versamark, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  Then I cut it out with the die in the bundled Detailed Bee Die set.

I adhered the beehive to the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a piece of Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from Honey Bee.  I cut that out with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.  Then I used Liquid Glue and Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment.

On Whisper White, I stamped both bee images in Tuxedo Black and cut them with their matching dies.  I also stamped the large bee on Vellum card stock.  Hint:  this takes a minute (or a FEW minutes!) to dry.  Don’t rush it!

I used my Crushed Curry (hey – it’s gold-adjacent!) Stampin’ Write Marker to color the bees.  Then I curled the wings of the two larger bees with my Bone Folder.  Using a Glue Dot, I adhered the Vellum bee to the card stock bee.  Then I added it to the bee hive with Liquid Glue.  I brushed the wings with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

I used a Black Dimensional and Liquid Glue to adhere the small bee by the sentiment.  I tied a little bow from Black Baker’s Twine in the Country Club Baker’s Twine Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

To finish it all off, I adhered a few of the Gold Glimmer Paper hexagons (that came out of the die cut honeycomb) onto the card front – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I added the beehive in Crushed Curry.  I stamped the little bee in Tuxedo Black – and colored it with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Crushed Curry beehive and Tuxedo Black bee on the front…

…and some more of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How gorgeous is the Golden Honey Specialty DSP?!?  And – it’s FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  Wow!

The So Sentimental Bundle with the uber-wunnermus Stitched So Sweetly Die set is a total workhorse and one of my absolute favorite new goodies!  Sentiments and cool shapes?  Winner Winner!

And – bees are so “right now”  and on trend.  And just so stinkin’ cute!  So the Honey Bee stamp set and bundled Detailed Bee Dies….perfect!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Woven Heirlooms So Sweetly Sentimental

 

Whheeeeeeeeeee (that’s me trying to type the sound one of those party doohickies make when you blow them….).  Hope you enjoyed the evening and are waking up bright eyed and bushy tailed – ready to get on with 2020!

I made a card for you guys that reflects how I feel about y’all, so I thought it would be a good one to share with you today! It uses the new So Sentimental bundle with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  And I pulled out a little Woven Heirlooms from the Annual Catalog, too.  Take a look-see:

If you’ve done any looking thru your new 2020 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog (I KNOW you have!) then this one might look a little familiar.  It’s a bit of a CASE of one of the samples!

I started with a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock that I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered it to the front of a Terracotta Tile card base with Liquid Glue.

The next panel is some Woven Heirlooms DSP, matted on Seaside Spray.

I pulled out the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and cut a Whisper White label.  Using a plain ole hole punch from the grocery store, I punched holes in both ends.  I popped the label onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I ran some Linen Thread thru and around the back of the panel – securing it with Glue Dots.

For the So Sentimental sentiment, I stamped it in Pretty Peacock on Seaside Spray and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly die.  That’s adhered to the white label with Liquid Glue.

I tied a bow with two lengths of Linen Thread and stuck it on with a Glue Dot.  Then I added a Pretty Peacock gem from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones and…the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second So Sentimental sentiment in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it, I added some fleur-de-do’s from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Rococo Rose.  A couple of Noble Peacock Rhinestones finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and into the Terracotta Tile card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some fleur-de-do’s from Woven Heirlooms in Rococo Rose on the front…

…and a little more Woven Heirlooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is SUCH a great set – with the So Sentimental stamp set’s wonderful sentiments and the AWESOME Stitched So Sweetly dies, right??  I love it and I’m already hope-hope-HOPING that it’s planned for the next Annual Catalog.  LOVE those stitched labels SO much!  Speaking of the Annual catalog – don’t forget about the great goodies to be found there – like the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and DSP!  I hope you like!

So – the So Sentimental bundle is a part of my Special Bundle #8 – The Say it in Ink Bundle – as well as a whole bunch of other goodies – including the Grace’s Garden bundle, Witty-cisms and Music From The Heart (and more!).  Be sure to check it out!

AND – when you order this bundle, you’ll get a pack of Whisper White note Cards & Envelopes FREE and you’ll qualify for 3 $50 Sale-A-Bration rewards OR 1 $100 and 1 $50 reward.  What will YOU pick?!?  😉
