Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade Thank You Card

Good morning good morning!!  How goes your week so far?  We had rain yesterday – a LOT, actually! – so….we’ve got God watering the garden for a minute, so…that’s cool!  I’m sure we’ll be back to “real” summer soon!

My card today uses a new bundle that is so ridiculously stinkin’ cute that….you need to get it ordered RIGHT NOW if you haven’t already!  It’s the Elephant Parade Bundle – and…well.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Heart & Home Memories & More Thank You Card

Good morning, my peeps!  How goes your week?

So…did anyone catch the little clue that I hid in yesterday’s blog post?  No!?  Hmm.  Guess I should have “bolded” it!  The hint was…the Last-Chance Products Sale!   That’s right – it’s almost time for you to pick up your favorite 2021-2022 Annual Catalog goodies (can you even BELIEVE it’s that time already!??) for the last time (some of them!).  I’d already told you that it might be a good idea to start gathering up the 2020-2022 In Colors – and you’ve been doing that, for sure – keep it up!  The Last Chance Products Sale starts tomorrow at 1pm Mountain – so…start making your lists! 🙂

My card today is…NOT from the Annual Catalog.  Nope – it’s from the Jan – Jun 2022 Mini and it’s a simple stamping card.  Yes – you know me – I’m all about the minimal layers – not a lot of embellishments! 😉  But – there was a challenge on the street to do “simple stamping” and I decided to give it a go!  And I used the Blessings of Home set, Heart & Home DSP and the coordinating Heart & Home Memories & More Cards and Envelopes to get it done.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! On the New Horizon at Sunset Thank You Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  It is Spring here in GA.  I know this because on Sunday and Monday, we were outside in the garden – I was in shorts and a t-shirt and a little warmer than I’d like.  All the windows were open and it was…heavenly.  YESTERDAY – the furnace switched back on and I was bundled in my covers & hoodie – getting rained on.

Oh well.  I guess it’s gotta have one.  Last.  Gasp.  But I’ve signed the DNR on Winter, so…

My card today depicts a sunset somewhere – I choose to think it’s on Maui, but…maybe it’s in the Rockies – or a lake in Tennessee!  Regardless of what YOU see – I made it with the cool On the Horizon bundle and scenic New Horizons 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Sparkle of the Season on Cork

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  How goes the week!? We’ve been busy – Wayne on the building, me getting ready for OnStage@Home at the end of the week.

And…roasting peanuts!  Our friend brought us a BIG (😳😳) bag of peanuts and I’ve been trying to use them up before they…go bad?

Also – they taste really good roasted.  And boiled! 😉

So – I DO want to tell you about something coming next week (16 – 18 Nov) – it’s the Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Sale – and…it’s got some great discounts on cardstock, ink and die sets from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  AND – you can combine the discounts with the Start with Savings Starter Kit special to get you some AMAZEBALLS savings!  All the deets are down below!! 🙂

My card today uses the wonderful Sparkle of the Season bundle (NOT from the annual catalog!), Nature’s Harvest DSP and…Cork Specialty Paper!  Take a look-see:

The wreath and layout are from the Inspired By challenge this week.

And The Card Concept was also inspirational – for the pumpkins and the color palette!  I’d call this style Freestyle Collage!

And the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge…well – I think I got everything BUT Gold Foil/Glitter!  😉

Thanks to the Sparkle of the Season bundle, this one was easy to put together.

To begin with, I cut a piece of Cork Specialty Paper to the same size as my Cajun Craze card base and adhered it to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.

I cut a smaller-than-usual piece of Harvest Meadow DSP, matted it on Evening Evergreen cardstock and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.

Using the Seasonal Swirls dies (bundled with Sparkle of the Season), I cut a leafy wreath from the Cork Specialty Paper and one from Cajun Craze cardstock. I stacked them up on the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used more of the Seasonal Swirls dies to cut leaves from Cork Specialty Paper and Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum and Pumpkin Pie pumpkins.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Cork and a Shimmer Vellum leaf to the top back of each pumpkin, then I popped the pumpkins on to the wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a Half-Double-Loop Linen Thread bow (the picture below is a regular Double-Loop bow – they’re the same, just with fewer wraps!).

  1. Wrap the Linen Thread around four fingers TWO times.
  2. Without cutting the thread, wrap around two fingers TWO times.
  3. Pull the loops off and squeeze the loops together.
  4. Twist the loops one time around to create a “figure 8”.
  5. Tie a second short length of Thread around the loops in the middle.
  6. Spread the loops out to create a bow.

I adhered the bow to the side of the wreath with a Glue Dot.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Sparkle of the Season sentiment in Cajun Craze and cut it with the smallest, skinny Stitched Rectangle Die (my “go-to” sentiment die!) and popped it over the bow with double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere two more leaves to the end of the sentiment, and then added Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels here and there and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Sparkle of the Season sentiment in Cajun Craze on a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I stamped the sweet little three-leaf image in Pumpkin Pie!

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and into the Cajun Craze card base and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got those little Pumpkin Pie leaves on the front…

…and more of the Nature’s Harvest DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Yeah – you know I love how this card turned out!  The script-y paper from Nature’s Harvest DSP – the Cork Specialty Paper – the bundled up Sparkle of the Season wreath with the Linen Thread bow and simple sentiment.  It’s really DOES have all the things! 😉

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Above & Beyond Thank You

Happy Happy Hawmpp Day!  We’re on the downward slide to the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!

So – at the retreat last weekend, we did a little “class” on the Marker-to-Stamp coloring technique using Stampin’ Write Markers and the Stamparatus.  I’d taken my Shaded Summer stamp set and 2021-2023 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers to do the demo.  I was pretty happy with the resulting piece of art – so I tossed the panel into my stuff to bring home.  I decided to parlay it into a quick and easy thank you card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Thinking Thanks & Peace for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I pulled out a new stamp set called Thinking Thanks & Peace (it’s a bit of a flyover, so you may have missed it on Page 62 of the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini) and added one of the big bold sentiments to some Cork Specialty Paper.  Then I cut a whole YARD’S worth of Beautiful Leaves die cut leaves in various Fall tones.  Take a look-see:
