Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today 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!

Our sketch struck me as perfect for showcasing some pretty Designer Series Paper, so I decided to pull out one of my favorites (that JUST SO happens to be ON SALE right now for 15% off!) – the Hand-Penned DSP.  I used the coordinating – and equally gorgeous! – Hand-Penned Petals Bundle, too!  Take a look-see!

Stampin’ Up! You’re Sweet as a Peach Thank You with Video Tutorial

Yesterday Wayne said to me….”Is tomorrow Friday again?  Already?”   And, of course, the answer was yes!!  Which means…I’ll have a sparkly clean house by the end of the day.  Whooo-hoooo!!  Do y’all have something fun planned for your weekend?  We….don’t, really.  Might hit the Farmer’s Market.  Maybe Lowe’s to pick up a couple three half-whiskey barrels to make a water feature for the garden.  Places we can take Finn, so….he’ll like that if we end up doing those things.

We’re not mentioning it to him – JIC we don’t get it done.  Expectation management is huge with Aussies. 😉

So…if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live – I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay – here’s the link!

Stampin’ Up! Encircled in Friendship Thank You

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  Wednesday is dawning like all the rest here in Hawaii – beautiful!  And a little more humid than it was in Maui.  It rained here yesterday which was…surprisingly surprising!  We knew this was a more tropical-rain-forest-y environment but…it still took us a little by surprise.  It was pretty, though – only part of the sky was cloudy so there was sun and rain all at the same time! 🙂

My card today uses the pretty Encircled in Friendship bundle with the fun Encircled in Beauty Dies.  All on top of some pretty Expressions in Ink Specialty DSP with a Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper die cut boost.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Butterfly & Wild Roses!

Good morning, y’all and happy HAPPY HAWWWMP Day!!  And…Happy 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Retiring Products List Release Day!

Yep – this afternoon, at 3pm Eastern time, Stampin’ Up! will be releasing the list of all the retiring products in the current Annual Catalog!  I am excited to see what carries over and what will be leaving us.  Y’all check back – watch for a post from me – I’ll get it out to you quick as I can.

You might want to go make a last minute swing thru your stash and see where the gaps are (especially in the 2019-2021 In Colors!) and get them filled right now!!  FYI – those ink pads, refills and Stampin’ Blends are ALREADY showing Low Inventory.  So… get busy! 😳😳😳

My card today uses a bit of a smorgasbord of goodies – anchored by the pretty Wild Roses background stamp.  Then I added a sweet tag (that was my contribution to our last Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting make-and-takes) featuring the Dragonfly Gardens stamp set and Brilliant Wings Dies.  Take a look-see:

I used several elements from this week’s Festive Friday Inspo List! I got butterfly, blue, and ribbon!

I started with the Wild Roses background stamp. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped that image on a Basic White panel in Versamark Ink.  Then I sprinkled Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder all over it and heat set it with my Heat Tool.

Using Blending Brushes, I first blended Mango Melody all over the panel – then added Melon Mambo to the edges.  I wiped off all the excess ink from the embossed portions – and ended up with an emboss-resist panel that I think is gorgeous!! 🙂

I matted my pretty panel on a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock for the card front.

The tag is a 2″ wide piece of Basic White, punched at the top with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  I curved the bottom corners using the Detailed Trio Punch.

I stamped a So Sentimental sentiment in Misty Moonlight near the bottom.  Over that I stamped the wildflower image from Dragonfly Gardens in stamped off once Just Jade ink.

I made a second tag from Shaded Spruce and adhered the two tags together with Liquid Glue.

Thru the top of the white tag, I looped some Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color Ribbon and tied it together with Linen Thread.

My butterfly is cut from the (now retired – sorry! You could easily stamp the Butterfly Brilliance butterflies in Misty Moonlight and cut them out) Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP using the Brilliant Wings die.  I also cut the detailed butterfly from Vellum cardstock – and adhered it to the DSP butterfly with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the butterfly to the tag with Liquid Glue – and adhered it all to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added some silver Metallic Pearls to the butterfly and the tag – and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second So Sentimental sentiment in Misty Moonlight to a Basic White panel – then added a Butterfly Brilliance butterfly over top in stamped-off-once Just Jade.  I added another silver Metallic Pearl.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Melon Mambo mat and into my Shaded Spruce card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got some Butterfly Brilliance butterflies on the front in Just Jade…

…and I stamped another butterfly in Misty Moonlight onto the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Yes – there’s a lot of stamp sets and tools used here – but…I think everyone needs So Sentimental in their tool box, anyway!  And the Butterfly Brilliance bundle – available now AND in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – is going to be a heavy favorite, I am sure.  Wild Roses is…stunning!  Especially in emboss-resist!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Dandy Garden Memories

Happy Tuesday!  Tuesday is sort of a flyover day, right?  Neither the start of the workweek (bleh) – not HAWWWWMP DAY, Mike – and for sure not the END of the workweek (whoo-hoo!) – it’s just sort of a…filler.  It’s cousin, Thursday, has similar identity issues, right?

Today is, however, National Puppy Day!  So…it’s got that going for it!! 😉

My card today has nothing to do with Tuesday – or puppies, for that matter – it’s just a quick and easy card using the truly cool Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, with a matching Dandy Garden Envelope and…a little help from the coordinating Dragonfly Garden Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Thanks to the amazing Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack, this one is super easy!

I pulled one of the large cards from the pack and trimmed it down a smidge to accomodate a Bumble Bee mat for the card front.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the matted panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  I used the same die to cut a Bumblebee mat, then used Liquid Glue to adhere the two die cuts together.

I popped the matted sentiment over the top of the braided trim with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I tied a simple bow from the Mossy Meadow trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I punched some tiny Blackberry Bliss dragonflies using the Dragonflies Punch (bundled with the Dragonfly Garden set) and adhered them with Liquid Glue – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Blackberry Bliss on a Basic White panel and added some of the pretty wildflowers in Bumble Bee.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

I did absolutely nothing to the already-perfectly-decorated Dandy Garden Memories & More Cards & Envelopes envelope!

Et Voila!  It took me a while to warm up to Memories & More Card Packs (I thought they were ONLY good for scrapbooking – but I was totally wrong!) but…this Dandy Garden Memories & More Card Pack is gorgeous!  And has SO many cool elements that you can use and use and use to create your card projects.  Or…even scrapbook pages!! 😉  And the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – well – it’s for sure one I hope makes it into the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Oval Occasions

Good morning!  Did you all have a good weekend?  The weather here was…wunnermus!  Window-open-t-shirt weather!  We worked in the garden and made some great progress on the new beds.  Hoping that strawberries and asparagus go in by mid-week.  The seeds I started are going gangbusters – and I’ve got lavender started, too!  Only fly in our ointment was that Sam’s didn’t have any more asparagus so….we’re stuck with the mixed-gender Mary Washingtons.  We’ll just have to do some thinning when we identify the girls.

That wasn’t sexist – so…no one complain or cancel me.  It just is what it is!

I’ve got a card today that I hope will get you even more excited about tomorrow’s release of the Butterfly Bouquet suite!  The Butterfly Brilliance bundle – which will also be available in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is paired up with gorgeous Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ DSP (which will NOT be available after this promotion!).  I paired them up with the Oval Occasions stamp set from the Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Dandy Laser Cut Thanks

Good morning and happy Monday!  We had a gorgeous couple of days here in north Georgia and have heard that the country is thinking about warming up so that’s all good.  We even washed the van yesterday (along with 100 of our closest friends!) 😉

My card today is a reach-back to the awesome Dragonfly Garden bundle and pretty Dandy Garden DSP.  This time, I also used a cool die cut panel from the Dandy Laser Cut Paper.  Take a look-see:
