Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful World Thanks 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 a sketch challenge – 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!

I am SO loving the Beautiful World stamp set and the accompanying World of Good Specialty DSP – and I used them again today.  Along with – cuz I can’t seem to help myself – my go-to for all things-thanks…the aptly named Massive Thanks.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch challenge.

I pulled the color scheme from the TGIF Challenge this week.

I started with some World of Good Specialty DSP and matted it on Night of Navy for the card front.

I took a second – Bumble Bee – piece and matted it on Night of Navy, too – then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I put a piece of Whisper White card stock into my Stamparatus and used it to stamp the Beautiful World sentiment in Night of Navy ink.  Over that, in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake, I added the world globe image.

I cut the sentiment with a circle Stitched Shapes die.

I used my Layering Circles dies to cut two scalloped-edged circles – the larger from Night of Navy and a smaller one from Brass Foil.  I adhered the foil circle to the Night of Navy circle with Liquid Glue.

I popped the sentiment onto the matted circles with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and then used Liquid Glue to adhere it all to the card front.

I used Glue Dots to adhere an Antique Corner to each corner of the middle panel – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to add a sentiment from Massive Thanks in Night of Navy to a Whisper White panel.  Over top is another stamped-off-once Crumb Cake globe image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Bumble Bee card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Beautiful World globe image in full-strength Crumb Cake on the front…

…and more of the World of Good Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The Beautiful World set is perfect for masculine cards – but…don’t let it get “stuck” in that compartment, okay?  It’s just a wonderful bundle for all your projects….

…and – this bundle could be yours for FREE – PLUS another $125 worth of the Stampin’ Up! goodies of your choice and free shipping – for just $99 when you take advantage of our awesome joining special right now!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Music From the Heart Just a Note

Hey guys – happy Monday!  Hope you had a safe weekend.  We had thunderstorms and tornado threats last night.  Sunday=severe weather, I guess.  I’ll be glad to get out of this particular rut!

I know a lot of you joined us on our Ornate Garden FB Event this past Saturday – and you know the card I shared was pretty “normal” for me – lots of layers, a little bling. 😉  Well – today’s card is so not like that!  I went clean and simple with the sweet Music From the Heart stamp set – and a few other goodies here and there.  Take a look-see:

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

And the cool color palette is from the Color Throwdown this week!

I started with a piece of the Peaceful Poppies DSP that I embossed in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Basic Black for the card front.

I wrapped a length of 1/2″ Black Satin Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut out a Whisper White Rectangle Stitched die cut and used the Stamparatus to stamp the music staff from Music From the Heart in Smoky Slate.

I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the sweet heart-note in Poppy Parade.

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

I added three black Peaceful Poppies Sequins across the top with little dabs of Liquid Glue.  When the glue dried, I filled in the little holes using the brush end of my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used a Glue Dot to add a small bow tied with the 1/2″ Black Satin Ribbon and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a second Music From the Heart sentiment in Tuxedo Black, and a Poppy Parade note, to a Whisper White panel.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Poppy Parade notes on the front…

…and a little more Peaceful Poppies DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a sweet stamp set – Music From the Heart gives you a multitude of musical images and sentiments for all your card making needs!

I hope you like!

Do you guys remember…bubble gum cigars and cigarettes?

I do.

Yes.  I am that old.

That was back when smoking was cool.  Or – at least we kids thought so!

I’ve given Finn “the talk” about cigarettes and smoking (and vaping – gotta keep up with the times!) – so he knows it’s not cool.  And bad for him.

But…you know.  He’s still a kid.

He runs with scissors, too…

Stampin’ Up! Hoot Hoot Hooray You Made My Day!

So…as I write this on Sunday evening, we’re waiting for the Severe Weather Outbreak to hit.

That’s what they call it.  Severe.  Weather.  Outbreak.

Scheduled to hit here around 2 in the morning.

Of.  Course.

I know you guys think I’m all cool and stuff, but…when it comes to Severe.  Weather.  Outbreak?

Uhm…no.   Not even a little cool.

So – if any of my card directions don’t make sense, it’s cuz 3/4 of my brain is trying to figure out how to catch the cat when the weather app screams SEVERE.  WEATHER.  OUTBREAK…at 2 and I have to go to the basement.  She is historically…less than interested in such nonsense.  Which means – I might have to leave her on her own.  🙁

Also?  I would really like to not lose all my plants.

Let’s all hope that Severe.  Weather.  Outbreak. fizzles, okay?

Okay – enough of that wussy melodrama.  Let’s talk card – since that’s really why you’re here! 🙂

I pulled out an adorable little set from the SU! Beginner’s Brochure – called Hoot Hoot Hooray and made a fun little thank you card! Take a look-see:

If you haven’t seen the Experience Creativity Brochure – check it out.  It’s got some fun things for anyone who likes to card make – regardless of their experience level!

The layout for my card is from the Fab Friday sketch challenge this week.

And the fun colors are from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the flower from Hoot Hoot Hooray (I masked off the sentiment with a sticky note).  Then I colored it with my Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo.  The center, I colored with my Light Mango Melody Blend – then added some Melon Mambo dots with my Stampin’ Write Marker.

Then,  I embossed the panel in the new Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder and matted it on Mango Melody to create the card front.

On another piece of Whisper White, in Mango Melody ink, I stamped the little owl (again masking off the sentiment).  I colored him with my Mango Melody Blends Combo and then I decided he needed to be black.  So, I traced over the body, feet and eyes with my Journaling Pen.  Then I traced his…feathers?….with my Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker.

I cut him out with the 3 3/4″ long Stitched Nested Label and popped him onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now – this is how he looked at this point.  Check the eyes.  They’re…scary.  Sorta like a zombie owl…

I fixed that right-quick with the Journaling Pen! 😉

For the sentiments, I inked them in Melon Mambo – masked off the images (these sentiments are on the owl and flower image stamps) and stamped them on Whisper White.  Then I punched them out with my Classic Label Punch.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals and a little Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiments and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the flower again in Tuxedo Black – coloring it with the Blends and Stampin’ Write Marker as I’d done on the front.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Hoot Hoot Hooray flower on the front…

…and some Mango Melody Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  Hoot Hoot Hooray is SUCH a cute stamp set – covering a myriad of occasions!  I hope you like!

I hope you’ll check it – and the other fun goodies – out in the brochure above!

Stampin’ Up! Seriously the Best Ornate Layers 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 a sketch challenge – 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!

I wanted to make a card to send over to Stamp-N-Storage for their Bee A Blessing Card Drive – so I needed a not-too-sappy/lovey sentiment – but one that still said what I wanted to say.  Enter…Seriously the Best!  Now this is a stamp set that coordinates with the Seriously the Best Project Kit.  I didn’t use the kit for this card – instead, I called on Ornate Layers and some… Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch – I laid it down on its side.

I started with some Terracotta Tile paper from the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP that I matted on Mint Macaron for the card front.

Next up is a Mint Macaron die cut frame – from the Ornate Layers Die set.  I adhered that directly to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the big sentiment from Seriously the Best in Mint Macaron on Whisper White.  Then I cut it with a Rectangle Stitched Die.  On each corner, in Mossy Meadow, I added the leaves image from Seriously the Best.

I popped the sentiment panel over the Ornate Layers die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow with the Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it in the corner with a Glue Dot.

I added a few Gilded Gems and the clean-and-simple card front was done!

On the inside, I added the perfectly-perfect second sentiment from Seriously the Best in Mint Macaron on Whisper White.  In the corners, I added the leaves in Mossy Meadow.

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

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Mossy Meadow leaves image on the front…

…and more of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  SUUUUUper quick and easy to make multiples of right quick – think…Stamparatus!  The Seriously the Best set is pretty awesome – multiple sentiments and a couple of simple images…

…and, while I didn’t use it for this card, the set coordinates with the fun Seriously the Best Project Kit – which I am totally going to pull out SOON!

I hope you like – and will add the Seriously the Best stamp set (and Project Kit!) to your stash!

Stampin’ Up! Gather To Every Season Thank You

Hey, y’all!  ‘Sup??  Hope you’re having a good weekend.

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me (and your understanding of my throat issues!!)!  If not, but you’d like to see how I used the Stamparatus to make this quick thank you card, here ’tis!

I frequently need multiples of cards – particularly thank you cards – so the Stamparatus is a total lifesaver!  AND – when you can also employ the “hinge step” (unique to the Stamparatus!) – it makes it easy and fun to create cards like this one with the multi-occasion To Every Season stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I pulled out a little linen-look Woven Threads DSP and the Very Versailles stamp set to create today’s vintage-y thank-you card.  Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I started with a piece of Woven Threads DSP – doesn’t it look like a piece of linen fabric??! – and stamped the wonderful script image from Very Versailles in Sahara Sand in two corners.  Over the top, I added the leaves image – one of the prettiest I’ve seen! – in Pretty Peacock.

Then I cut the middle out with a new Stitched Nested Labels Die.

On the cut-out piece, I used Versamark to stamp the frame image from Very Versailles.  Then I sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I popped the piece back into its spot with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched out a Pretty Peacock 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle and adhered it over the embossed frame with Liquid Glue.

On another little piece of the same Woven Threads DSP, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and cut it with my 1 1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch.  Then I popped it over the Pretty Peacock scalloped mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used Glue Dots to adhere a couple of leaves from the Bird Ballad Trinkets and a Linen Thread double-loop bow – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used more Woven Threads DSP for my inner panel, first stamping a second Very Versailles sentiment in Pretty Peacock.  I added the script image in stamped-off-once Sahara Sand and leaves in stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got the stamped-off-once Sahara Sand script and stamped-off-once Pretty Peacock leaves on the front…

…and on the envelope flap I added more Woven Threads DSP and some leaves (yes – I really LOVE this image!)…

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness, y’all – how wonderful are the images in this Very Versailles stamp set??  And they’re perfectly perfect for adding to the beautiful papers in the Woven Threads DSP!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Accented Blooms Send All Things Thanks

Mornin’, y’all!  How goes the weekend?

Well – I suppose it’s a little early to tell, huh?

I’ve got card making to do this weekend – our team has a fun Retreat planned next weekend and…I’ve got to get ready!  It’s going to be so fun and I can hardly wait – we’ve rented a super cool house that was purpose-built for crafting groups.  And they even have catering – so all WE have to do it craft – and eat – and chat!

For today, I’ve made a couple of quick thank-you cards!  I used the Accented Blooms and the All Things Thanks stamp sets from the Annual Catalog – on top of a couple of Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Note Cards and Envelopes from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Both cards have identical layouts on the smaller Memories & More Cards – I just changed up the coloring a little!

I inked up the large and lovely Accented Blooms corner image with Versamark ink and stamped the note card.  I sprinkled them with White or Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed the image with my Heat Tool.

I stamped the All Things Thanks sentiment in Poppy Parade on Whisper White.  Then I stamped it on Mossy Meadow, using Versamark.  That one I sprinkled with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  I punched both sentiments with the Tailored Tag Punch.

I put a few Stampin’ Embellishments on the back of the punched sentiments and used them to wind some Silver Metallic Thread – then I popped the sentiment onto the card front.

I added a single Clear Epoxy Droplet and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a corner floral image from the Accented Blooms on a panel of Whisper White – one in Poppy Parade and one in Mossy Meadow.

I matted them on Poppy Parade panels and then adhered them inside my cards with Liquid Glue and the cards were done!

The Santa’s Workshop Cards and Envelopes have matching envelopes, so all I had to do was add that little Accented Blooms image to the fronts!  One is heat embossed in White and the other in Gold.

Et Voila!  I do love this beautiful corner image from Accented Blooms, don’t you?  And it’s perfect to add a great sentiment like this one from the All Things Thanks stamp set.  Be sure to pick up some of the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Cards and Envelopes – you get two sizes in the pack.  Handy, huh?!  Hope you like!

‘Member me telling you yesterday that Finn accompanies me on my morning walks?

Well…he does.

Uhm…mostly.

I realized that he’s started to sort of…cheat.

About the time I hit the 2mile point, I notice that he’s not with me.

I call.

Sometimes I call LOUDLY and hit the collar.

And then I keep walking.

Yesterday I figured out “the drill”.

“Heeeeyyyy, Mom – here I am!”

“Ya done yet?  I’m ready to go in and get a drink and lay in front of that cold air thingy…”

I have to repeat.  Cuz…it bears repeating.

SMART smart boy.
