Stampin’ Up! Sea Turtle Happy Labels Thank You with Video Tutorial

UPDATE on FRIDAY, 3 Feb 23:  So….apparently, when I was adding the PDF tutorial last night – I somehow managed to delete 90% of the post instructions! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️  I have no idea how – and JUST realized it!  Open the PDF (the link is actually right in the MIDDLE of the post 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️) and all the directions for making this card are right there – just without…all my extraordinarily witty commentary! 😉  Sorry, guys!! 🙁

Good morning and happy…Friday!  I’m a little off my days this week – Miss Sonya cleaned yesterday (thank goodness!) instead of today so…I spent all day yesterday thinking it was FRIDAY!  But it wasn’t. 🤷‍♀️

When we went to Maui, we did some snorkeling, which was wonderful!  Wayne and Lance, though, ALSO went S.C.U.B.A. diving and saw some sea turtles – the pictures were pretty awesome (but..I wish I hadn’t been so claustrophobic in the mask/tank thingy and could have gone, too!).  And I know I’ve been pretty reticent about my love of Maui…or..not.  So – the Sea Turtle set, when it was released in the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini, caught my eye right away!  I pulled it out today and found a couple of good sentiments in the Happy Labels stamp set to go with!  Take a look-see:

Et Voila!  Oh – my – goodness!  I LOVE this stamp set SO much!  The Sea Turtle images – with their “reversable-ness” – are simply wunnermus – and will let you create all sorts of pretty undersea scenes!  Add in some By The Bay DSP and maybe a die cut or five from the Seaside Bay Die set and…you MIGHT think you’re on Maui! 😉

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn’s taking a “me” day and gave me leave to “borrow” his spot.  Hope you don’t mind!

Last week, when I made the Greatest Journey Card – I used the three cloud dies in the set.


When I was DONE – I had TWO dies left – the smallest was….gone. 😳😳😳

I looked high – I looked low.  I dumped out the trash cans and pawed thru them.

I got on my hands and knees to check under the table and under the dresser.  Yes – I DID manage to get back up but…it wasn’t pretty! 🙂

I sort of gave up hope.

Yesterday, I made sourdough crackers.  When they were all baked I dumped them onto a tray to cool.

Which seems like…an unrelated thing.

While making dinner, I donned my mitt to pull the chicken from the oven…

Once I had the mitt on, I realized there was something in it.  I figured it was a cracker – thinking I’d gotten a little jiggy with the “dumping” earlier.

I was…wrong.

How.  In.  The.  World?!?

I was very happy to see that die – although not a little confused about how the heck it got in there.

Fast forward to yesterday at my craft table – my brain finally clicked on the answer.

My new watch band is metallic with a ….MAGNETIC clasp.

Appears I carried it with me when I made dinner last week and it got scraped off when I pulled the mitt on. I was totally oblivious!

Can’t make this stuff up, y’all! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Stampin’ Up! Rugged Charming Sentiments Masculine Thank You Card

Happy Tuesday!  Did you all have a good three-day weekend?  Ours was a bit of a wash-out – it rained much of each day!  Which meant – a lot of inside time for us!  Not altogether a bad thing, really!

My card today is a special request – needed a masculine thank you for handyman work done well.  Not hunting or fishing.  Maybe some woods….hmmmm.

So – I put on my crafty thinking cap and…pulled out the Rugged Icons die set – with its power drill die.  And then some Neutrals DSP – a couple of sentiments from Charming Sentiments.  And then I let myself use some woodsy elements from the Grassy Grove set on the inside – I mean..the work was done at a Rocky Mountain house so….it seemed right!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Triple Time Thank You Card

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!

So – before we hit it – I want to give you a quick update on a really popular Sale-a-Bration freebie: the Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards & Envelopes.  Bad news – they’re sold out – and I suspect they won’t be back.  So that milk is spilled – that horse is out of the barn.  The moral here is that…if there’s something you LOVE (Rings of Love DSP – hint hint) – then you need to be taking steps to be able to order those NOW!!

Now – let’s talk card!  This one uses the so so pretty Apple Harvest stamp set from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog!  And I’ve dug out the Triple Time Technique and…Clear Wink of Stella “watercoloring”, too!  Take a look see:

Stampin’ Up! Begin with a Dream on Split Card Textures

Good morning, y’all!  Hope your weekend is starting out well!  I’ll be headed out in a bit, I suspect – first day is really short so there’s not a need to hurry.

Which is good.  My hurry has done get up and gone!  I’m in slog mode! 😳  But – I am SO having Vietnamese for dinner at my fave restaurant in Huntsville tonight – so that is definitely something to look forward to!

Yeah – I hung the participle or something like that – sorry!  But it means I need to get typing before I start drooling on my keyboard! 😳

My card today was a chance to play with the new Split Card Textures dies – an a la carte (ie: stand-alone) die set in the new Annual Catalog.  I paired it with a host-exclusive set called Begin with a Dream.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Wishes Hand-Penned Petals

Good morning, y’all – did you have a good Labor Day? I ended up getting a lot done – cleaned, sliced and froze a bunch of baby Portabella mushrooms (did you know you could do that!?), bagged and froze the shredded cheese, finished a card tutorial for SplitCoast Stampers, did a Zoom the Craftroom and made a card for today!  So….good day all the way around!

My card is a CAS creation (no – I am fine, thank you for asking!) that features the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set from the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog, a little foliage from Hand-Penned Petals (2021-2022 Annual Catalog) and…some FREE Beautifully Penned DSP (from the Aug – Sep Sale-a-Bration catalog!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Blackberry Beauty of Tomorrow Card

Good morning, y’all and welcome to your work week!  I hope it’s going to be a good one for you! 🙂

Last week, while I was cutting up paper for the Catalog Shares, I posted a picture over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page of my latest favorite DSP!  It’s a specific design in the new Blackberry Beauty Specialty DSP – which is a totally gorgeous paper pack!  From the minute I saw it, I was plotting a card in my head that would showcase that particular paper perfectly!  And I think I got it done with this one, when I paired it up with the coordinating Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set.  Take a look-see:
