Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Sneak Peek Thank You Card

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I’m busily getting ready to go to Huntsville next week – Tuesday thru Thursday, so…getting some cards ahead!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I really appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – and if’n’y’ont’to  (that’s Jeff Foxworthy-speak for “if you want to”) then here it is on YouTube!

I made this card using the new Bloom & Grow Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  I paired it up with some pretty new paper from the Woven Threads DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of the Woven Threads DSP in Rococo Rose, Purple Posy and Seaside Spray and matted it on Sahara Sand for the card front.  Then I used some Liquid Glue and Glue Dots to add a length of new 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon in Pretty Peacock.

The sentiment, from Bloom & Grow, is stamped in Pretty Peacock on a second design of the DSP – it’s actually the back of the design on the card front! 🙂  I matted the sentiment on Sahara Sand and popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the art, I stamped the big and beautiful floral from Bloom & Grow in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the matching die in the Budding Blooms Dies.  I also stamped some leaves and berries in Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray and cut them out as well.

I used my Blender Pen to pick up ink from the lids of my Seaside Spray, Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose Ink Pads and colored all the flowers and leaves.  I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the Rococo Rose flowers for a little shine.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves to the sentiment panel and popped the large floral over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Gems to the middles of the flowers – and one next to the sentiment – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Bloom & Grow in Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  I also added a second floral image in Tuxedo Black.  On this one, I used my Clear Wink of Stella as a paintbrush to “watercolor” the image!


I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into my Rococo Rose card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the florals from Bloom & Grow on the front…

…and more of the Woven Threads DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The images and sentiment in the Bloom & Grow bundle are BIG, folks!  Big and beautiful  – and they’ve all got matching dies in their bundled Budding Blooms Die Set!  How cool is that?  I’m also really falling in love with the Woven Threads DSP, aren’t you?  I hope you like – and hope you’re makng your shopping lists!

Finn Fan Fix


So – it’s gotten…warm…here these past few days.

Day before yesterday, Finn asked to go out and I let him.

I mean – I’m not a monster! 😉

About twenty minutes later – I look out the window and he’s laying in the grass looking at me.  So – since it was warm, I invited him back in.

And gave him a big hug.  Cuz…I love him.

And…wrapped my arms around 74 pounds of hairy, furry SOPPING WET dog.  BLEEEEEHHHH!!!

Apparently it’s swimming weather!

I dried him off best I could – but…he was still in early drip phase.  So – best I could was not so bueno.

Feeling like a monster, I decided to put him back out for a bit.  So I got one of his big chew bones and handed it to him on his way back out the door.  And went to sit down and go back to work.

One-point-three nano seconds later…

Mom?

Mom?  You in there?  I need to come in, Mom.  Cuz I’m a little too warm…

And then he dropped the bone.

After a minute, he went and got it.

Back to the pitiful puppy ploy.

And yes.  Of course I let him back in.

Soggy pantaloonies, bone-leaves and all.

Cuz I’m not a monster.

I’m a sucker for that face! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Everything Is Rosy Thank You Card!

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:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started by making my own designer paper.  There are a lot of beautiful papers in the medley, but…I wanted something just a little different.  So…I stuck the three Everything Is Rosy leaves from the stamp set onto an Acrylic Block and inked them in Night of Navy ink.  Then I stamped them all over a Whisper White panel.  Aren’t they gorgeous?!?  I LOVE the textures I got just by inking-and-stamping!  I also added some flower-centers all around in Melon Mambo and Balmy Blue.

I matted the panel on Melon Mambo for the card front and added a Melon-Mambo-matted panel of the Everything Is Rosy DSP (the REAL one!) to the side with some more Liquid Glue.

Then I pulled out the die cuts in the Medley and adhered one with Liquid Glue.  Over that, I used Glue Dots to adhere a piece of the Night of Navy/Rose Gold Ribbon from the pack.

On one of the Rose-Gold-Foil embellished die cut sentiment labels (I’m telling you guys – the Everything Is Rosy Product Medley is simply chock-a-block full of goodies!!!) I stamped a sentiment from the set in Melon Mambo.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to add a couple more flower die cuts – tucking one under the edge of the sentiment!  Then I added some Rose Gold Adhesive-Backed Mirror Embellishments to the flower centers.

Finally – some of the die cut labels have decorative holes pre-punched in them – I took some of the little “hanging chads” and adhered them with Liquid Glue in the centers of the smaller flowers…and the card front was done!

On the inside, I adhered another flower die cut with Liquid Glue to a Whisper White panel.  Around it I stamped the flower-center image in Melon Mambo.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another die cut and stamped flower-centers on the front…

…and a little more Everything Is Rosy “real” DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I’m loving this Everything is Rosy Product Medley that Stampin’ Up! has pulled together for us – but you have to remember it is ONLY for a month!, y’all!  Specifically, THIS month – which is officially half-over!  So…NOW would be a most excellent time to snap it up and add it to your stash!

Stampin’ Up! A Mosaic Mood Sneak Peek Thank You!

Happy Friday, y’all!  All things being equal…I should be on the road by the time this hits your inbox.

Fingers, toes and eyes crossed that the predicted rain didn’t materialize!

My card today uses the pretty Memorable Mosaic stamp set and coordinating Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP.  Plus a new punch (whoo-hoo for new punches!!) called the Timeless Label Punch that will be bundled with the stamp set when the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live on 4 May.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps this week.

I started with a piece of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and matted it on Terracotta Tile (one of the wonderful new 2019-2021 In Colors!) to create the card front.

On a smaller piece of Whisper White, I stamped the tree-leaves image from Memorable Mosaic three times – once each in Mint Macaron, Garden Green and Soft Sea Foam – moving the image slightly with each stamp to create a fuller image.  I also added a Soft Suede trunk.

Then I cut a Circles Layering Framelit circle from the corner – hanging on to all the cut pieces – and matted the panel on Crushed Curry.

I adhered the main matted panel to the card front with Liquid Glue – trimming the overhang on the side and bottom.  Then I  matted the cut-out circle on a Crushed Curry scalloped-edge circle die cut and popped it in place, lining up the images.  Then I used my Paper Snips to trim the excess.  Finally, I used a little Liquid Glue to stick the tiny Whisper White corner back into place to “complete” the card front!

I stamped the Memorable Mosaic sentiment in Soft Suede on Whisper White and cut it with the small Rectangle Stitched Framelit die.  With the new Timeless Label Punch, I cut out a coordinating piece of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and adhered it to the circle with Liquid Glue.

I popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I fussy cut three butterflies from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and adhered them in a fluttery-fashion with Liquid Glue.  Then, since I was on a roll (or a “snip”!), I cut a little bee and adhered him with Liquid Glue to the sentiment.  It’s all about the icing, people!

I added a Pearl Basic Jewel to each of the three butterflies – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the big, bold sentiment from Memorable Mosaic in Soft Suede, then colored it in with my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker.  I stamped some flowers in Terracotta Tile – and gave them each a tiny Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker flower center.

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

I added more Memorable Mosaic Terracotta Tile and Crushed Curry flowers to the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…

…and I added more of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I have to say – this Memorable Mosaic suite of goodness is really growing on me!  I love the images in the stamp set and the paper is simply gorgeous!  Being a fussy-cutter at heart, I love that so many images in the paper “stand alone” enough to use as decoration (icing!) on my projects.  I hope you like and are already making plans to add this to your stash when the catalog goes live in….less than a month!

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Butterfly Gala

Hello from Maryland!  Made it yesterday in decent-ish time (have to say – the traffic thru DC was ridiculous especially given that it was Saturday – I’ll never complain about Atlanta traffic again!). I was pretty whooped (I’m not as young as I was the last time I made this trip!) so only sort of unpacked the car – just enough to be able to go to bed.  Will finish that today and get my “nest” made!  Keep an eye on your FB notifications later this evening – I may hop on for a few minutes to give you a gander at my home-away-from-home for the next 5 – 6 weeks – if I can get it all together!

So my card for today is one that uses the gorgeous – and FREE during Sale-A-Bration! – Botanical Butterfly DSP and the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  Take a look-see:
