Stampin’ Up! Share a Well Said Ride!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  The week is progressing – too fast for once – to the weekend.  Before I know it I’ll be headed to the airport to pick up the rental car and bringing it home to pack!  The only real question is whether my list of gotta-get-dones will be got-done by then! 😉

A little admin-y stuff first…I’ve got new info below about some die sets that are in danger of going “not orderable” due to the high demand we’ve experienced.  Take a look and if something you were wanting is on the list…hop to it!  I don’t think they’ll last long…

Okay – My card today is a super easy fun-fold that I made for a friend.  I used some Share What You Love Specialty DSP and the wonderful Let It Ride and Well Said stamp sets.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dear Doily, Words Can’t Express…

Happy Monday, y’all!  Hope you had a good weekend – or are still having it depending on how you (or your employer!) view the holiday-status of Martin Luther King Day!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I thank you for spending part of your regular/long weekend with me! 😉  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here is it on YouTube!

I used the new Dear Doily stamp set and bundled Doily Builder Thinlits to do a little embossing and die cutting to create this sympathy card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Golden Afternoon Sympathy

Happy happy Hawwmp Day!!  The week is officially almost half over!  And so is January.  Can you even believe it?!?  That means…only 11 1/2 months until Christmas!

Now THAT’S a scary thought, huh?!?

I mentioned the other day that my friend needed a sympathy card and that I’d made two for her to choose from.  The first was my butterfly card from Monday.  Today I’ve got the second one – this one comes from the new and lovely Golden Afternoon stamp set, to which I added some Neutrals DSP and a little Subtle Embossing.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Flowing Fountain and Roses!

Good morning, y’all, as we head into another week.  Hope it’s looking okay for you – take heart from the fact that next week is a long weekend!

I’m sorry we weren’t able to do our video last night – hopefully by the time you read this they’ll have it fixed.  As in fixed “good” – not just poking along at the speed of dial-up… 😉

So – I needed a sympathy card for my friend – and this is one of two that I made for her to choose from.  This one uses the gorgeous Rose Trellis Thinlits and a few sentiments from the Flowing Fountain stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! All My Love Happy Tails Sneak Peek

Good morning from rain-soaked-and-soggy Georgia!  Good golly!  We’ve gotten so much rain in the past day or two – it’s been cray cray!  Hopefully it bodes well for a non-drought-ridden summer!

One of the cool new stamp set bundles in the 2019 Occasions Catalog is called Happy Tails!  The stamp set is bundled up with the Dog Builder Punch.

I’ve been waiting for a good dog stamp set – that would let me make sympathy cards for folks who’ve lost their fur-kids!  Non-cartoon-y ones, and this is a great add to my tool chest!

So – for today, I paired this new bundle with some All My Love DSP to make a sympathy card for the loss of a pet – just to have on hand!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Doilies & Butterflies

Good Sunday, y’all!  Tomorrow Santa will begin his whirlwind tour!  Hopefully all his elves are ready!

And remembered AA – AAA – 9V and 75 C-Cell batteries! 😉

In order to ensure that all the elves have time for their last-minute preparations, we will NOT do a video tonight – sorry!  This elf is going to spend the evening watching Hallmark Christmas movies! 🙂  I’ll see y’all next Sunday!

My card today should bring Spring to mind – it does for me, with its gorgeous Botanical Butterfly paper and wonderful sentiments from the Dear Doily stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lasting Lily and Botanical Butterflies Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday, my peeps!  Did y’all brave the elements – and the crazy crowds! – to hit the Black Friday sales?  I sure didn’t!  We stay pretty hunkered down on Black Friday – I hate the traffic and Wayne has zero tolerance for them (cars or people!).  So…we stay home and shop the old fashioned way.

Online! LOL!

You guys did a little Online Extravaganza shopping yesterday, I saw!  Yeah!  There’s still today left for the Paper & Embellishments sale and then we’ll segue over into two days of Phase 2: Stamps & Kits!  Then there’s two more days after THAT (Tools & Ink)!  And – of course, thru the whole event, I’m offering Double Peppermints.  So…it’s a most wonderful time….of the YEAAAAAAR!

Now – on a slightly different tack, my card for today features some new goodies that will be available starting on 3 Jan 19 with the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs!  Lasting Lily is a wonderful 16-stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration flyer – that you’ll be able to pick up for free with a $100 purchase!  And I tapped into the wonderful Hold on to Hope stamp set and Cross of Hope Framelits from the Annual Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lovely as Trees and Thoughtful Prayers on Black Ice for Stamp Ink Paper #141

Good morning, y’all!  Happy Tuesday!

Being Tuesday, it’s time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge – and this week it’s a sketch challenge!

I used a fun technique that I recently came across called the Black Ice technique.  I did it on Copper Foil, using the Lovely as a Tree pine image and a sentiment from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Cool, huh?  Looks like an icy-rain! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Hold On To Hope Thoughts & Prayers

It’s Monday, y’all!  I’ve got but one thing to say about that.  Bleh.

I repeat.  Bleh.

And that’s all on that subject.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, thanks so much for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how to make this card, here’s the YouTube replay!

I needed a sympathy card this week – my husband’s Granny died last Monday.  She pretty much raised him, so it was a blow.  She was 98 – so it wasn’t a shock.  She was ready to go home.  I thought that the beautiful Hold On To Hope stamp set and the bundled Cross of Hope Framelits were a perfect choice, especially when combined with a sentiment from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Most of the “how” to do this one is in the video, so be sure to check it out! 🙂 Continue reading
