Stampin’ Up! Feathers, Frost and All Things Thanks!

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawmp Day from Orlando!  Whoo-hoo!!

We had an uneventful trip down yesterday – even if it WAS raining – and got to our condo in good “pretty” time…tip: never get off the freeway.  PAY the toll on the Turnpike.  That’s all I’m saying about that…

Today is CenterStage – which is being held at Epcot!  I’ll head over around lunch time to be a kid-at-heart for a few hours, take in the Wine & Food Festival for a while (and try to walk off the calories – oh heck, who’m I kidding??!  I’m leaving the diet at the condo!!).  I’m excited!!  I love Disney – not gonna lie.  And Epcot is awesome.  Soaring…here I come!!

But – before I head off to see the Mouse, let me show you a fun little (literally!) notecard I made with the Feather & Frost stamp set and the All Things Thanks set.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Falling Leaves and Santa’s Bags for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color week challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.

I took a little inspiration from a sample project in the 2018 Holiday Catalog for some of the elements I used on my card today – specifically the muslin Santa’s Bags.  I used them along with the cool Falling Leaves bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Shutter Gate Fun Fold Card

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  This is sort of a cool day for me – I think I mentioned on a Sunday video that I’d been invited to be a guest Tutorial Author on SplitCoast Stampers.  And this is the day my tutorial goes live! 🙂

The card that I made for the tutorial – Dina Kowal asked me to do a Shutter Gate Card for it – was made with the new Country Home stamp set and Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Festive Pop of Petals and Many Blessings

Mornin’, my peeps!  How goes your week? It’s sort of like Monday, right?  I hope you do NOT have a Monday-Tuesday! 🙂

Guess what tomorrow is?!?

Well – yea, it’s Wednesday (aka Hawwmp Day).  But…more importantly – it’s 2018 Holiday Catalog LAUNCH DAY!!

Whoo-hoo!  I know you can hardly wait – and I’m excited for you – I can’t wait to see what you’ve all put on your wish lists that you can finally – FINALLY!! – get on the way! 🙂

For today, though – I’ve got a little bit of new and a little bit of old for you!  I pulled out the Many Blessings stamp set (this one really OUGHT to be on your wish list!) and some Festive Farmhouse DSP (see previous parenthetical!) and put them with some Pop of Petals and….well.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Fusion challenge this week – hitting both the sketch and the photo inspiration!

I started with a piece of Wood Textures DSP and used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a strip of wonderful plaid paper from the Festive Farmhouse DSP.  Then I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat for the card front.  I used some Glue Dots to wrap a length of new 5/8″ Striped Burlap Trim around the seam of the two DSPs.

On a piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the wreath from the Many Blessings set in Mossy Meadow.  I curled the image around to make it more wreath-like than garland-like!  Then I lightly colored the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  I added some Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler berries with the image in the stamp set.

Then I fussy cut the wreath and used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (yes, quite a few! 😉 ) to adhere the wreath to the card front.

I pulled one of the flower images from the Pop of Petals stamp set (Annual Catalog) and stamped three in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White and three on Very Vanilla in Crushed Curry.  Then I punched them all with the matching bundled Four-Petal Flower Punch.

I created three flowers by adhering two flowers together with Liquid Glue.  I did two flowers with the white on top and one with the Crushed Curry on top.

Do y’all recognize that kitty?

Yep – it’s the cut-out from last night’s card! 🙂

I ran that thru the Big Shot in the Subtle Dynamic TIEF and then very lightly sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.

Then I stamped it with the Many Blessings sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.

I used some Glue Dots to wind a few loops of Linen Thread around the inside of the wreath and then I started to build the collage!

I used Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals as needed to build all the elements.  I also stuck in a few Copper Leaf Elements with Glue Dots.  Then I tied a Linen Thread Billie Bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Over that is a double-length bow of Very Vanilla Solid Baker’s Twine.

I used my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend to color three Pearl Basic Jewels and added them to the card front to finish it off.

On the inside, I stamped a second Many Blessings sentiment in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla panel (I only inked and used half the sentiment).  Then I added a few Crushed Curry flowers (which I also colored a bit with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker) and a Mossy Meadow corner.

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

The front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another corner and flower…

…and I added a little more Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Sometimes being a hoarder-of-scraps pays off, huh?  I love this little Cat Punch guy nestled in the Pop of Petals flowers, don’t you?  And – Many Blessings is destined to be a favorite – for Fall AND for Christmas projects!  I hope you like!

Tic-Toc….not much longer to wait now!

Finn Fan Fix

My Finny likes to play ball.

His desire to chase the ball, however, is inversely proportional to the heat.

And his need to play keep away.

On a hot day – like it’s been this week, he’ll race after the ball several times – but the return is…

Sketchy…

“If I bring it back, she’s going to throw it again.”

“I could run up the hill and let her try to get the ball away from me…”

“Or….I could trot to the door and go into the house and get a drink and lay down in front of that cold air that comes from…wherever cold air comes from…”

“You get it, Mom.  I’m done with you.”

“Is that a squirrel?!?”

Stampin’ Up! Subtle Striped Tropical Chic and an Ordering Special!

Good morning on the last day of August!  Which is an important date….

Why?

Cuz there’s a few things coming to an end that you’re going to want to jump on.

  1. The Color Your Season Bundle won’t be available after today!
  2. The Watercolor Pencils – Set 2 may very well NOT be available after today!
  3. This is the last day to earn Bonus Coupons to spend starting tomorrow – or, if you’re anxiously waiting for the 2018 Holiday Catalog…to hang on to until next week on the 5th!
  4. Finally – this is the LAST DAY to earn TRIPLE PEPPERMINT POINTS from me by purchasing the aforementioned Color Your Seasons Bundle!  Folks are getting this great bundle and racking up Peppermints while they do it (remember – when you earn 16 – you get a Peppermint Reward of…anything of your choice up to $40 from me!).  If you don’t know about my Punkin’ Head Rewards Program – check it out right here.  And then…head over to my Online Store and order your Color Your Seasons Bundle!  Remember – you have to purchase the BUNDLE to get the Triple Peppermints!  And this Ordering Special ends tonight!

Okay – now.  On to our card for today!

I decided to play with some of the goodies in the Tropical Chic suite (in the Annual Catalog!).  I especially love the colors – pinks and greens – of the Tropical Escape DSP.  Take a look-see:

I didn’t come up with this layout on my own, I borrowed it from the sketch challenge at The Paper Players.

And the inspiration photo from Hand Stamped Sentiments helped me pick my theme!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock, that I embossed in the new Subtle Dynamic TIEF.  Then I adhered it with Liquid Glue to the front of my Shaded Spruce card base.

Next up is a piece of Tropical Escape DSP that I cut in strips and adhered to a Basic Black mat.  I cut a single panel of the DSP and then cut it into strips.  Each strip is adhered with Liquid Glue (giving me some time to wiggle them around and get them aligned/spaced just right).

I stamped the Tropical Chic sentiment in Shaded Spruce on a strip of Whisper White and snipped a banner into one end.  Then I edged it with my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker.

I cut some leaves with the Tropical Thinlits from Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce.   I adhered a couple to the card front with Liquid Glue, then used a Glue Dot to adhere a few loops of Linen Thread – then popped the sentiment over all of that with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the rest of the leaves with Liquid Glue.  Then I added a Tropical Element button with a Glue Dot.  And, because….why not!?…I tied a Linen Thread Billie-bow and added it with a final Glue Dot.

I used my Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color a few Pearl Basic Jewels and tucked them in amongst the leaves and Linen Thread – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I repeated the Subtle Dynamic TIEF on another Whisper White panel and adhered it inside the Shaded Spruce card base with Liquid Glue.  On another Whisper White panel, I stamped a leaf from Tropical Chic in stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green.  Over the top of that, I added a Tropical Chic sentiment in Shaded Spruce.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and then onto the embossed panel, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple of Tropical Chic leaves in Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce, and a flower in Petal Pink…

…and added a little more of the Tropical Escape DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Petal Pink, Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce and Black!  What a perfect color combination – which means the Tropical Escape DSP is just the best.  And – it’s a perfect accompaniment to the Tropical Chic stamp set and bundled Tropical Thinlits!  Hope you like! 🙂

Don’t miss out on all the Last-Call specials today, okay?!? 🙂

Finn Fan Fix

Have I ever told you guys that we have a lot of wheeled vehicles?  And tracked vehicles?  We’re a farm – so we’ve got too many trucks, too many skid-steers, too many…eveything (well – until I need Wayne to do something construction-y and then we have JUST the right number! LOL).

Anywho…Wayne is a Master-Parker.  By which I mean…he can, without expending any undo effort, park one of the aforementioned wheeled/tracked vehicles Right.  Smack.  In.  The.  Middle.  Of…fill-in-the-blank.  There is always and forever some vehicle of some sort IN MY WAY!

And, y’all – it’s not like there’s not plenty of space to park them that would NOT be IN MY WAY!  Really.  There’s room.

It’s just sort of his thing.

Finn appears to be “his father’s son”.

As if he had thumbs, a ruler, a protractor and a laser-level…he can (and does!) find the EXACT spot to lay Right. Smack.  In.  The.  Middle.  Of…fill-in-the-blank.  Basically IN MY WAY.

Case in point.

See the precise positioning?

Perfectly poised bewtixt the stove and the frig.  While I’m making dinner.

A chip off the ole block, he is.

I’m sure he thinks he’s helping… 😉

Stampin’ Up! Tin Tile Detailed Leaves Sneak Peek

Good morning, my peeps!  Hope your week is going well!

I’ve got a fun little card for you today with another sneak peek – including a look at one of my favorite new things in the 2018 Holiday Catalog – the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.   I put a Falling For Leaves sentiment and some Detailed Leaves over top.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge this week.

I made a card with this new bundle earlier – and it looks completely different just by virtue of a totally different color scheme.  If you missed it, you can check it out right here! 🙂

I started with a piece of new Galvanized Metallic Paper (coming soon – 5 Sept! – in the Holiday Catalog), embossing it in the wonderful Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.  Then I sponged it with Gray Granite ink – just to antique it a bit – and adhered it to a Crushed Curry mat with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some new Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

With the Detailed Leaves die, I cut two sets of leaves from Copper paper from the new Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper pack, and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Also using the Detailed Leaves dies, I cut two solid Crushed Curry leaves and two Merry Merlot detailed leaves.  I ran the Crushed Curry leaves thru the Big Shot in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF.

I used Sponge Daubers to rub Crushed Curry ink over the solid leaves, and Merry Merlot over the detailed leaves, then I adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  I stuck the top leaf down with Liquid Glue, then popped the bottom leaf on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With a sentiment from the Falling For Leaves set, I stamped a sentiment in Merry Merlot on a Crushed Curry strip, then snipped banners in each end.  I lightly sponged the edges with more Merry Merlot, and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional at each end and a little Liquid Glue in the middle.

I finished off the card front with a small bow from the Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon, adhered with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the large leaf from Falling For Leaves in Merry Merlot in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I used my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker to color it.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Merry Merlot card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Falling For Leaves leaf in Merry Merlot and Crushed Curry on the front…

…and I repeated the leaf on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Loving this new Falling For Leaves stamp set and the bundled Detailed Leaves Thinlits, aren’t you?  And – no one can argue that the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF – especially when combined with a wonderful metallic paper (like the new Galvanized Metallic Paper!) – isn’t one of the coolest things to come along in a while!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Falling For Detailed Leaves Sneak Peek

Well – the last TRUE Friday is upon me!  I have a whole weekend off ahead of me to sleep.  And make cards.  And…sleep!  Mix that in with some get-up-whenever-or-don’t and a little do-nothing-of-any-import and…I’ve got a great weekend ahead of me!  I hope the weekend ahead of you is looking similarly promising!  Then a week from today I’ll head to LA and then home to my boys!  And girls (can’t leave them out – cuz they’ll be ready for a little attention!).

My card today uses a little new and a little old (-ish!).  For the new, I pulled out the new Falling For Leaves stamp set, bundled with the Detailed Leaves Thinlits.  I popped it atop a bit of Chicken Wire Elements and the Tufted Dynamic TIEF.  Guess which of those you can get now…and which will be available on 5 Sept?  Take a look-see:

The layout is courtesy of this week’s Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch.

 

And the color palette – which I ended up loving, by the way! – is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.

I started with a panel of Daffodil Delight and I stamped several images from the new Falling For Leaves stamp set (coming 5 Sept) in Blueberry Bushel and Granny Apple Green.  Then I embossed the panel in the Tufted Dynamic TIEF and matted it on Granny Apple Green.

I used a piece of the new Chicken Wire Elements and snipped the corners off for a little more “shape”, then I adhered it to the card front – with the creamy white side up (it’s Silver metallic on the other side) – using Liquid Glue.

I laid down a short length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon with a little Liquid Glue for the next layer.

With the leaf die from the new Detailed Leaves Thinlits (coming on 5 Sept), I cut a Granny Apple Green leaf.  This die cuts a leaves-of-three shape (no – it’s not poison!), so I snipped one leaf off and then adhered them to the card front – leaving space for my final leaf element.

I cut a detailed leaf in Granny Apple Green and a solid leaf in Blueberry Bushel and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the leaf and used them to wind loops of Silver Metallic Thread, then popped it onto the card front.

My sentiment, also from Falling For Leaves, is stamped on a strip of Vellum in Blueberry Bushel.  Then I snipped some banner ends and edged it with my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  A Glue Dot under the stamped sentiment adhered the banner to the leaf.

With two lengths of Silver Metallic Thread and one of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine, I tied a little bow and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue – and that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from the Falling For Leaves set in Blueberry Bushel to a Whisper White panel.  Then I surrounded it with some Granny Apple Green leaf elements.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green mats and then into my Blueberry Bushel card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Falling For Leaves leaves in Blueberry Bushel and Granny Apple Green on the front…

….and I stamped the largest leaf image in Granny Apple Green on the back (the Stamparatus works great for ensuring the image crosses the edge of the flap perfectly!) and colored it a touch with my Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Marker.

Et Voila!  Although I can’t wait to use this Falling For Leaves bundle in Fall colors, I love how it turned out in Granny Apple Green and Blueberry Bushel (two of my very favorite new colors!), don’t you?  I hope you like!

What are catalog shares, you ask?  They’re your chance to try a little bit of everything and see what you like the best.  It’s like…your first trip thru a cruise ship buffet…you have a little taste of all the fun things you like (or have never tasted) and then you go back for seconds (or even thirds!) on the goodies you love!

I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 5 Sept 18 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast!  Then I’ll get it all cut up, packaged and out the door quick as I can – hopefully early in the week of 10 Sept.

Shares are open to anyone – including demonstrators, so…check it…

I’ve got a few options for you to pick from:  a New Designer Series Paper Share, a New Ribbons/Embellishments Share, and an I Want It All Share (this one gets a free extra bonus!!).
