Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Thankful Card

Good morning, y’all! Yes – it’s Hawwmp Day.

But – more importantly – it’s September 11.

Please take some time today to REMEMBER.  We must never ever forget, my friends.  Take a few minutes of silence – particularly at the times the aircraft hit the buildings – 8:46….9:03….9:37…and 10:03.  Think back to where you were – think of the days afterward and the eerie silence of the skies.  Of watching the television in horror and…disbelief.  Of feeling insecure within the borders of our country.

Never.  Forget.

Okay – now.  On to less weighty subjects…

So – my card today is a fun one that uses the baby wipe technique!  I used it to create a Fall-themed Thank You card – or a Thanksgiving card – with the Beauty & Joy stamp set and some Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one – and the colors and theme! – are from this week’s FUSION challenge.  I used both sides!

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed in the new Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.  I cut it down to size and used a sponge to brush Celestial Copper Delicata Ink over the raised areas.  Then I matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front!

The center DSP panel is a piece of Mossy Meadow and Copper foil paper from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP, matted on Mossy Meadow and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out a Baby Wipe and laid it out on my Silicone Craft Sheet.  Then I used Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Mango Melody Re-Inkers to drop color onto the wipe – which I then used as an “ink pad”. 🙂

I inked the leaves image from Beauty & Joy with the Baby Wipe “pad” and stamped it on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  I added the “trunk” image in Soft Suede and the pot in Crumb Cake.  Then I cut it with a Stitched Label die.

I popped the art onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped some more leaves on another piece of Very Vanilla and fussy cut a few of them – then I adhered them in a little “pile” at the base of the pot with a little Liquid Glue.

Using a length of Cajun Craze Linen Thread (from the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack) and a length of Linen Thread – I tied a simple bow and adhered it to the art panel with a little Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Beauty & Joy sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla and cut it with the Classic Label Punch – then popped it onto the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a Star Designer Element to the sentiment and the card front was done!

On the inside, I repeated the Fall leaves across the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel.  Tip:  be sure to clean off your stamp between each ink/stamp step.  Otherwise, the colors will get all muddied up.  And no one has time for muddy leaves! 😉  I added a few Star Designer Elements, too.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Mango Melody card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Beauty & Joy Fall leaves across the front…

… and I added some more of the pretty Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  This Beauty & Joy stamp set is – in my opinion! – one of the 2019 Holiday Catalog’s “fly-over” sets.   Easy to overlook and dismiss.  But…it’s so pretty – and versatile – with images and sentiments for Fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas!  With the Christmas Gleaming Specialty DSP – in Mossy Meadow, not the expected Night of Navy or Pretty Peacock! – it’s a perfect card for the season!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Fall Sweetly Swirled Thank You

Good morning!  Hope your weekend is going well!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see how to make today’s card, you can check out the replay right here on YouTube!

I played with a new-to-me set called Sweetly Swirled to make a Fall-ish thank you card.  Not sure why “Fall” – maybe the three or four days with mornings cool enough to open the doors and windows for a few hours?  Not quite Fall weather, but…pretty darned nice!  Wishful thinking I guess!  I paired it up with some wood-y paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and adhered it to some Pumpkin Pie card stock for the card front.

I ran a strip of SNAIL across the middle of the panel and used it to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.  Then I wrapped some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack around twice, adhering it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the large Sweetly Swirled “wreath” in Early Espresso.  Then I cut it with an oval Stitched Shapes Die.

I stamped some leaves and berries from Sweetly Swirled in Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze around the edge of the wreath, and added the sentiment in Cajun Craze.

On a seperate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped some flowers, berries, leaves and…orange slices??…using Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie inks and daubing a couple of them with Cajun Craze using a Sponge Dauber.

Then I pulled up my big girl Paper Snips and got to fussy cutting! 😉

Once I had everything cut out to my exacting standards (LOL), I used Liquid Glue and Dimensionals to adhere them to the edge of the wreath.

I tied a Double-Loop bow from the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Sweetly Swirled in Cajun Craze in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I added another wreath – this time in stamped-off-once Early Espresso.  Then I decorated it with more flowers, leaves, berries, and fruit!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Sweetly Swirled wreath on the front…

…and the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the sweet wreaths that can be built using this Sweetly Swirled stamp set!  SO much easier than ACTUALLY making a grapevine wreath, yes?? 🙂  And – it can be totally seasonal – just change up the colors and you’re in Spring, Summer or even Winter!  I hope you like!

Eating yoghurt from an eensy-weensie little tub (Noosa – the BESTEST!) is a job for professionals.

Especially when you can’t use your hands.

Behold…the consummate professional.

Sometimes you have to go “all in”

Do not try this at home.  You’re not properly prepared for such an activity.

Stampin’ Up! Modern Heart is a Well Written Thank You

Well.  Tuesday arrives.  And when I look out the window I don’t see the Greek isles – or miles and miles of ocean.

And – when I go to get a cup of coffee, no one will admonish me to “washy-washy”!! 🙂

It’s truly back to the real world, my peeps! 🙂

My Katy is fine – looks like she got along okay in our absence.  I wanted to thank Sonya for taking care of her, so…a card seemed to be in order!  And – unlike the horse-care-thank-you…this one needed a cat.  So…out came the Cat Punch.  And I paired it up with the new Modern Heart stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The color scheme for this one came from this week’s Sunday Stamps color challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White.  In the middle, I stamped the bold “swath” image from the new Modern Heart stamp set.  I stamped it twice in Bermuda Bay ink.  With the tiny heart image, I stamped here and there in Pretty Peacock.  Then I matted the panel on Highland Heather.

On a second piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large heart image in Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored the various shapes on the inside with my Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends in Bermuda Bay, Shaded Spruce, Highland Heather, Purple Posy, and Pretty Peacock.  Then I fussy cut the heart.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to the card front.

I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of my fussy cut Modern Heart and used them to wind several loops of Silver Metallic Thread.  Then I popped the heart onto the card front.

I punched the cat out of Basic Black card stock using the Cat Punch and adhered her over the heart with Liquid Glue.

Using the Well Written Dies, I cut “thanks” and “You” from Whisper White.  I snipped the “s” off of “thanks” and then adhered the words to the card with Liquid Glue.

I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the large Modern Heart in stamped-off-TWICE Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I added a sentiment in Highland Heather.  I scattered some tiny hearts across the panel in Bermuda Bay.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more hearts on the front…

…and I used my Stamparatus to add the Modern Heart images on the back as well!

Et Voila!  I wasn’t sure about this Modern Heart set – but was intrigued by the samples in the catalog, so I added it to my stash!  And boy, am I glad that I did!  It’s obviously going to be a great set to use for all sorts of cards!  I love it in the peacock colors of the challenge.  I hope you like!

The Man is home!  He was happy to see us – for about 15 seconds, then he zoomed around the Puppy Tubs lobby sniffing every single sniff.  And debating if he could get away with grabbing a bone out of one of the baskets!  Even the pictures are blurry! 😉

He was damp – so he’d obviously had a play in the pool in the morning – and ready to get in the car (after we got his suitcase and food bucket!).

That’s not his suitcase – that’s my new Soda Stream!

On the way to the house, right at the mailbox, we saw a doe and two (tiny!) fawns!  I was WAY WAY too slow to capture them on camera – but…the Man totally saw them!

Once we made it to the house, he unpacked his suitcase, putting Mr. Reindeer and Mr. Elephant away.  Then…it was time for….

…a nap in front of the air conditioning vent.  This travel stuff is exhausting – the jet lag is just horrendous! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Well Written Let it Ride Thank You

Well – it’s the last day. 🙁  For our cruise AND for Double Peppermints (just sayin’!).

It’s been wonderful and folks are already looking forward to Maui.  Whaaaa?

I’m guessing by the time you read this, we’ll be somewhere over the Atlantic bucking the jet stream to get back stateside!

My card today is destined for the lady who has been taking care of the girls while we were gone.  Which means – it needed horses and woodsy-ness.  And that naturally meant…Let it Ride and the Woodland Embossing Folder.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and stamped the pretty pine trees image from the Let It Ride set all over it in Mossy Meadow.  Then I embossed it in the Woodland Embossing Folder.  I cut it to size and matted it on Mossy Meadow using Liquid Glue.

I pulled out a couple of lengths of the linen ribbon in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack and used SNAIL to adhere them criss-crossedy onto the card front.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the Let It Ride horse head onto a piece of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and then cut it with a Stitched Nested Labels die.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment from Mossy Meadow card stock using the Well Written Die and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

A couple of Bird Ballad Trinkets leaves – adhered with Glue Dots – set the stage for a Linen Thread double-loop bow topped with a double-length simple bow from Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second Let It Ride horse image in Tuxedo Black onto a Crumb Cake panel.  In the middle, I added a stamped-off-TWICE Mossy Meadow line of pine trees.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the grazing horses in Tuxedo Black on the front…

…and more of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP – with a Mossy Meadow tree line! – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I hope that my friend likes this Well Written Let It Ride thank you!  I am ever-so-grateful for the good care I know she’s taken of my ladies while we were gone!  And – I hope you like, too! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! A Well Written Daisy Lane 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 Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

When I saw the color challenge, my brain screamed DAISY LANE!  Like most of us, when my brain screams – I listen.  So…Daisy Lane it was.  Take a look-see:

Guess – no really! – guess what the color challenge is??!

I started with a piece of Old Olive card stock and stamped the pretty ferny leaf from Daisy Lane all over it in Old Olive for a tone-on-tone “DSP”.  Then I embossed the panel in my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Daffodil Delight for the card front!

While I had the embossing folder handy, I embossed a piece of Whisper White and matted it on Daffodil Delight.  I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out my Well Written Dies and cut “thanks” from some Pool Party card stock, then adhered it vertically on the embossed Whisper White panel. I made a bunch of ferny leaves with the new Lovely Leaves Die – cutting several from Old Olive card stock and Old Olive vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum Card Stock pack.

For the Daisy – which might not even be a daisy anymore….maybe a yellow dahlia?? – I stamped the large and small flowers from Daisy Lane twice each in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White.  Using a Blender Pen, I pulled ink around in the petals to color them.

I punched out all the flowers – using the carry-over Daisy Punch for the large flowers, and the Medium Daisy Punch (bundled with Daisy Lane for a 10% savings) for the smaller ones.

I also punched some flowers from So Saffron vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves to the card front in an ever-so-artisic way.  I also adhered all the flowers in a stack to create my “daisy”.

I stuck a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of my flower and used them to wind some Silver Metallic Thread in several loops.  Then I stuck the flower onto the card front and “ruffled” the petals a little with my fingers to give it a little “boost”!

I added a new silver Designer Element to the middle of the flower and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the smaller flower from Daisy Lane to add a Daffodil Delight flower in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  I added some Old Olive leaves and a second Daisy Lane sentiment in Pool Party.  And another Designer Element!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Pool Party card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

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

…and more of the Old Olive ferny leaves on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love the new Daisy Lane stamp set and the bundled Medium Daisy Punch is just the bomb-diggety.  SUCH a perfect addition to our “stable” of punches.  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris 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 Hop is a Color challenge (and it’s a gorgeous one!) – so, I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I pulled out one of my new stamp sets – this one is called Inspiring Iris and it’s really beautiful! – to play with this challenge.  And then (couldn’t help it!), I added a little of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

And…our color challenge!

Love those colors together, don’t you?

So – let’s git it!

I started by matting some “linen” paper from the new Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on a Blueberry Bushel mat for the card front.

On some Very Vanilla, I stamped the pretty Inspiring Iris flower image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I stamped the flower-fill-in image (this is a three-step image) in Pretty Peacock and the stems/leaves-fill-in image in Old Olive.

The sentiment, also from Inspiring Iris – is stamped in Blueberry Bushel.  That sentiment stamp is actually curved already – perfect for adding just like that!

I cut the image out with a Rectangle Stitched Die.  While at the Big Shot, I also cut the same size die cut from some Blueberry Bushel card stock.

I adhered the Blueberry Bushel mat and the art panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.  I added a couple of strips of new Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape – purely decorative, it’s not “holding” anything on!

I added a single Noble Peacock Rhinestone in Pretty Peacock (been dying to use one ever since I got the pack!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Inspiring Iris in Blueberry Bushel to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I took the carnation image and curved it on my Acrylic Block before stamping it in Tuxedo Black.  I added the flower-fill-in in Pretty Peacock and the leaves and stem in Old Olive.  I added another Noble Peacock Rhinestone, too.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Inspiring Iris carnation on the front…

…and more of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love this Inspiring Iris set – it’s a bit of a “fly-over” set, I think, but…do NOT fly over it, my peeps.  Do go to your catalog and check it out on page 111!  I hope you like!

Yowza, y’all!  It’s FRIDAY again!  Whaaaa?

And – more to the point – we’re well past the half-way mark for the Stampin’ Up! Everything is Rosy Product Medley! How is that even possible?

On Wednesday, when I showed you my first “Rosy” card (here), I promised a second one soon.

Well – it’s “soon”!  This time I used the Product Medley to create a quick and easy Thank You card, making heavy use of the die cuts included in the medley.  Take a look-see:
