Stampin’ Up! Just Because I Was Thinking of You!

Mornin’, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!

I’ve got a pretty little note card for you today, that uses a new Host-Exclusive stamp set from the 2019 Occasions catalog, called Just Because.  And you’ll be able to purchase it with Stampin’ Rewards starting on 3 Jan!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s FabFriday sketch challenge.

I started with some Festive Farmhouse DSP and embossed it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then matted it on a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.

I used the Leaf Punch to make some Vellum and Copper Foil Leaves, which I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the pretty image/sentiment (all one stamp!) from the Just Because Host-exclusive set (coming on 3 Jan 19) in Early Espresso Ink.

I colored the image with my Old Olive and Cajun Craze Watercolor Pencils.

I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat with Liquid Glue and popped it over the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the heart, I colored a new Heart Epoxy Droplet (in the Occasions catalog – available 3 Jan) with my Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend.  The bow is a simple little number made of Linen Thread – which I adhered with a dab of Liquid Glue and the card front was done!

On the inside, I inked just the flower pot portion of the Just Because stamp in Crumb Cake ink, stamped it off THREE times and then stamped it in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.

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

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Just Because flower pot on the front – stamped in Early Espresso and colored with the Watercolor Pencils…

…and I added a little more Festive Farmhouse DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Just Because Host stamp set is really wonderful, y’all!  Hope you like!

Once it comes available in January, you’ll be able to pick this Host set using Stampin’ Rewards – which you’ll earn when you host a workshop that reaches $150 or if you place an individual order of $150 or more!  If you’ve just added this set to your wish list, let me know.  I’ve got Online Host Clubs getting ready to start in January that will let you get this one for yourself – I’ll be happy to get you on the list!  Get all the information and the list of bennies right here!

Finn Fan Fix

Finn is a wonderful conversationalist.

Seriously.  He understands everything I’m asking of him and responds appropriately.

For example:  “Finn!  What’s that noise?”

As opposed to: “Finn – where’s your dad?”

“Want a cookie!??”

“Need to go outside?”

See what I mean?  Total intra-species communication!

Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings CAS Acorns

Mornin’, y’all!  It’s Friday.  Finally.  It’s been a heckuva week.  I know there are still folks in FL and TX for whom Friday or Tuesday makes no never mind – and I’m awfully sorry for that.  You have my continued prayers for better days – and power!! – ahead!

My card today is a quick and easy one – that’s also clean-and-simple.  It uses the Count My Blessings stamp set and a few other little goodies to help out.  Take a look-see:

This one played with a couple of challenges.  The first is from Stamp Ink Paper and was the impetus for the clean-and-simple Fall theme.

And the second, from the Sugar Pea Designs Mix It Up Challenge, gave me my layout.

I started out with a piece of leaf-strewn paper from the Painted Autumn DSP and covered it with a piece of Vellum card stock in the same card-front size.  I used Fine-Tip Glue to adhere the Vellum – being sure to only put the glue under the middle portion of the Vellum in order to keep the glue from showing through.  Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel on a Cajun Craze mat.

The sentiment, from Count My Blessings, is heat embossed in Copper Embossing Powder on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  That piece of card stock is slightly smaller than the next layer – which is another square of Very Vanilla.  I used my Circles Layering Frameltis die to cut a circle from this square – then I embossed the panel in the Layered Leaves Dynamic TIEF.  With the de-bossed side up, I popped the square over the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the same size circle die and the next larger scalloped circle die, I cut a Copper Foil frame and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

On a scrap of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Count My Blessings acorn image in Versamark Ink, sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  Using my Blender Pens and Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Old Olive ink pads, I colored the acorns and leaves.  Then I fussy cut the image and adhered it with Liquid Glue (and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional under the leaf) to the panel.

I repeated the Copper embossed image on another panel of Very Vanilla card stock, colored just the acorns, and fussy cut them.  I lightly rolled the acorns around a pen to give them some dimension – and then popped them over the first image with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish it off, I tied a small bow with two lengths of Linen Thread and two lengths of Copper Metallic Thread, and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I used the Count My Blessings acorn image again.  I inked it with Crumb Cake, stamped it off once on scrap paper, and stamped it in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Cajun Craze 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 stamped-off-once Crumb Cake acorn from Count My Blessings…

…and then I added more of the Painted Autumn DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love how this acorn from Count My Blessings looks embossed in Copper and fussy cut.  Especially against the simple embossed panel and Copper sentiment.  Hope you like!

Finn-Fan Fix  

We’re an America’s Got Talent household.

We don’t have any particular telent – oh, no.

We like to watch the show.

Don’t judge.

Last night, while we were watching, a dog act came on the screen.

Finn, who was, at the time, allowing me to hold his chew bone while he chewed it….stopped.  Looked over his shoulder with his lips caught in his teeth.

Then he raced over to the tv.

And watched….

aaaannnnndddd….watched…..

“wonder what the judges think…..”

Finally just gave up and sat down to watch in comfort.

I was laughing so hard (behind my hand and trying to hold it in so as to not offend…) that I was absolutely in tears!

Funny little kid.

Stampin’ Up! Marbled Tranquil Tulips

Happy Hawwmp day, y’all, from sunny/rainy/cloudy/sunny/breezy/humid/pleasant/rainy Florida.  The weather has been changeable at best!  Humid almost always.  Much more so than I like, to be honest.

And the no-seeums are everywhere! And –  I can totally see-um.  So why the name?  It’s kinda dumb.

My card for today is very springy-summery.  And uses a lovely new Host Set – the Tranquil Tulips set.  On top of that – or on the bottom, as the case my be – I used the new Marbled background stamp.  I love background stamps!  Take a look-see:

My layout – and the tulips –  are inspired by the sketch and photo at the Fusion Challenge.

And the color scheme (even though it really works with the Fusion picture, too!) is from The Paper Players challenge.

I started by sponging Pool Party and Daffodil Delight ink onto the Marbled Background stamp using my Sponge Daubers.  I didn’t do a lot of planning on where I was putting color – just kind of randomly sponged it on.  Then I stamped it onto a Whisper White panel for my card front.  It’s a very soft color scheme!

I SNAILd the Marbled panel to a Daffodil Delight mat.

For my art work, I cut a smaller piece of Whisper White card stock and used my Paper Trimmer to create the angled bottom.  

Then I started stamping flowers!  Both the tulip and the small blue flower are two-step images.  I stamped the Tranquil Tulip tulip in Daffodil Delight and the smaller flower in Pool Party – both steps in the same color.  The stamps themselves create the shading!  I did use my Pool Party Stampin’ Write Marker to darken the small flowers a little!

I stamped the stems in Lemon-Lime Twist and called it good on the flowers!

To make the “lace” border, I used the new Decorative Ribbon Border punch to cut out a few strips of Whisper White.  I snipped them to size and used Liquid Glue to adhere them on the backside of my panel.  Then I popped the whole thing over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish it off,  I tied a little bow from the new Lemon-Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon and attached it with a Glue Dot.  I dithered a little about adding another embellishment of some sort, but decided to leave it clean.  So, that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I added a few more Tranquil Tulip flowers in Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Lemon-Lime Twist on a Whisper White panel.  And I added a sentiment from the Feather Together stamp set – stamping it in Lemon-Lime Twist.

I matted the panel on Daffodil Delight and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some more Tranquil Tulip flowers on the front…

…and a little more of the Daffodil Delight and Pool Party Marbled Background on the envelope flap.  Plus a few more Pool Party flowers (I gave each of them a quick “stem” with my Lemon-Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker)!

Et Voila!  I think the Marbled Background stamp, done in Daffodil Delight and Pool Party is a beautiful, soft base for the pretty Tranquil Tulips, don’t you?  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasonal Layers Fun-Fold

Happy Monday, everyone!  Hope your weekend was most excellent!  Ours was – we ended up going to dinner with our friends for Mother’s Day yesterday.  Very enjoyable – but…we still have not seen Guardians!  I’m going to take a day of vacation this week and we are going to see it.  I am afraid the number of movies needing IMAX/3-D is high and if we wait too much longer… 🙂

So last night I did a video on today’s card – if you were able to join me – thanks so much.  If not, and you’d like to see it – here it is on YouTube!

For those of you who want to see the directions and card cuts – this is the post you’re looking for!

This card uses a fun basket-weave fold that I saw a tutorial video for, done by Kelly Atcheson, over on Splitcoast Stampers.  I combined that fold with the new Colorful Seasons stamp set and the bundled Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  Here’s what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Now the layout for this card is courtesy of the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week.

And my color scheme hails from the Fab Friday color challenge.

I started by printing out the basket weave template that Kelly provided.  Here it is for you!  Print it out – make sure it’s printed on a “regular” piece of printer paper.

Then I cut out one of the templates and secured it to my Dapper Denim card base.  That’s a piece of 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card stock, scored and folded (and burnished a little) at 4 1/4″.  I used a couple of paper clips to secure my template to the card base.  Next, I just used my snips to cut the lines on the template, making sure to go all the way to the ends of each line.

To make the basket weave, take a look at the video to see how it’s done.  It’s crazy easy – but it’s a lot easier to see in a video than in words or photos!

Go ahead.  

I’ll wait.

Okay – you back?  Got the hang of the basket weave?  

Great – we’ll drive on!

My card front begins with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, SNAILd to a Calypso Coral mat.  To make my leaves, I pulled out a piece of scrap Water Color Paper (I used Canson 90lb Cold-Press) and then sponged it in Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry and Dapper Denim.  I made large swipes of each color, and let them overlap a bit.  Then I cut the three leaves with the beautiful, intricate leaf die in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

I adhered the leaves to my card front with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from the Colorful Seasons stamp set (which will be bundled with the Seasonal Layers in the new catalog for a 10% savings!), I stamped in Rich Razzleberry on a strip of Very Vanilla, then matted it on Calypso Coral.  I popped the sentiment over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used the leaf image in the Colorful Seasons set and inked the stamp with my Sponge Daubers in Calypso Coral, Dapper Denim and Rich Razzleberry and stamped the leaf on a Very Vanilla panel.

How cool does that basket weave look when you open the card?!?  I SNAILd my panel to a Calypso Coral mat and then into the card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Colorful Seasons leaf on the front…

…and on the envelope flap,

Et Voila!  Don’t be afeared of the basket weave, y’all!  It’s really simple when you see it broken down (so please watch my video!!).  Like the first time you try to make a lattice top on a pie.  Looks too complicated for words, but then you see the “trick” and…yep.  Voila!  I love love love this leaf stamp and die in the Colorful Seasons bundle – it was the first thing that caught my eye when I saw it.  When added to all the other stamp images and dies…well, I know this is going to be one of my favorites!  I hope you like it, too – and are adding it to your wish list! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix…

You know, this silly goofy little dog that we invited into our lives…he gives us so much joy.

And aggravation!

And laughter!

Really more joy and laughter than aggravation, to be sure!

This morning, before I was really “up”, he came into the bedroom for his usual “second sleep” (the one after he goes out first thing and before we go feed).

I happened to look down and saw….

That’s the end of his collar – he has a new one and it’s very very long.  He had ahold of it – and was sound asleep.

Silly goofy little dog.

And oh, I love him so!

Finn-Fan Fix…

The past couple of days, when it’s been pretty hot, Finn has been availing himself of the golf cart – even in the morning.  

It’s not unheard of for us to make an entire round with him riding next to me.

Guess he figures the golf cart needs some exercise?? 🙂

Don’t get me wrong.

He’s not slacking off.

He’s got an eye peeled for squirrels, bunnies, bugs, ducks, airplanes, deer (oh, please let there be a deer, Mom!!!), sticks, rocks, chipmunks, butterflies, bees, frogs, snakes, Dad, ponies….you name it.  He’s watching with his eagle eyes.

And snaggle tooth.

Nothing escapes his notice.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love Colorful Seasons Sneak Peek

Mornin’, y’all!  Happy Monday!  Hope your week has gotten off to a good start.

Last night I did a Facebook Live video to demonstrate the card I’m sharing with you today (I’ve included a link to it down below if you’re interested!).  I used the new Colorful Seasons stamp set with the bundled Seasonal Layers Thinlits (both available 1 June) and a little bit of Jar of Love and Everyday Jars (available right now!).  Throw in a touch of Wood Textures DSP (1 June), and…take a look-see:

I used the inspiration photo at Just Us Girls this week to inspire many of the elements of this card.

To start off, I embossed a Very Vanilla panel in the Sparkle TIEF and matted it on a piece of new Lemon-Lime Twist card stock (avail 1 June).

On the middle Very Vanilla panel, I stamped just the word “Breathe” from the Colorful Seasons stamp set, in Berry Burst Ink (also avail 1 June).

Using a piece of Wood Textures DSP, I cut the adirondack chair using the cool die in the Seasonal Thinlits die set and adhered it to the panel with a little Liquid Glue.  I stamped the tall glass image in Berry Burst (just the glass portion – it’s photopolymer so it’s easy to just ink part of the image) and cut it with the matching die.  Then I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to add a straw and popped it on with a piece of a Stampin’ Dimensional.

My flowers are all from the Jar of Love stamp set – I stamped a bunch of them in Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo and cut them with the matching die from the Everyday Jars Framelits.  I also cut two of the leaves/stems from Lemon-Lime Twist and then cut a few short pieces from them.

I stuck the leaves on the panel with Liquid Glue, and then added flowers with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I Fast Fuse’d a Lemon-Lime Twist mat to the card front, and then popped the completed sentiment panel over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A little seed Pearl Basic Jewels Embellishment in each little flower center finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Colorful Seasons in Berry Burst on a Very Vanilla panel and then added a few flowers from Jar of Love in Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon-Lime Twist mat and into a Very Vanilla Thick card base (avail 1 June), popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the Jar of Love flowers on the front…

…and I embossed the envelope flap in the Sparkle TIEF!

Et Voila!  How cool is that adirondack chair from the Seasonal Layers thinlits – especially when cut from some Wood Textures DSP!  And I just love the sentiments and images in the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  I hope you like and are adding them to your wish list!

If you’d like to check out the video…here ’tis!

Scroll on down for the card cuts and all the products you’ll need to make this one for yourself!

Y’all have a super day and I’ll see you tomorrow! 🙂

Finn-Fan Fix…

Yesterday was Finn’s first day at Obedience School.

As we all expected…he was a star!!

Of course, he’s in a class with a 14 week old Boxer puppy (who will seriously give the Finn-ster a run for his money in the “CUTE CUTE CUTE” department!!), a 7 month old German Shepherd who is, unfortunately, in charge of both her parents, and a 4 year old German Shepherd who also has a bit of the wool pulled over his mom’s eyes.

So – the competition wasn’t stiff, y’all.

But.  Of them all – here’s how Finn decided it was best to wait for class to start.

Just chillin’.  Waiting for the teacher to come tell him he’s going to be the pet.

She used us as the example of what to do right all the way thru the class.

She did ask me at the end….now, why are you here again!?!?

Yea.  He was that good.

But then – we all knew it would be so, didn’t we?!?

Stampin’ Up! Cozy Moroccan Critters are Here for You – and a Surprise Ordering Special!

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  It’s Wednesday and I’m headed to Huntsville for a couple of nights.  Wayne and Mr. Finn will be staying at home. 🙁

Speaking of Mr. Finn – I have a question for you guys.   In my family, someone was always being described as being busy as a cranberry merchant.  Why is that a thing?  Does anyone know why a cranberry merchant is busy?  I don’t actually know any cranberry merchants – and we surely didn’t have any in our family, so…. ?

Regardless.  I feel confident in saying that Finn is almost always busy as a cranberry merchant.

finn-at-the-trough
And, since I don’t know any human cranberry merchants, I’m willing to go out on a limb and say my cranberry merchant is the cutest of all….

finn-face-on
And, lucky for y’all, Finn is also a generous little soul.  While we were having our little meeting, he persuaded me to offer a surprise ordering special….so be sure to read on down, okay?

Now, my card for today also features some cuteness.  Owl cuteness, to be exact.  The little owl from the Host Exclusive set called Cozy Critters (Holiday Catalog) gets together with some Moroccan Designer Washi Tape and a couple of sentiments from the fun stamp set called Here For You.  Take a look-see:

cozy-moroccan-critters-here-for-you-4-stamps-n-lingers
This one is also super quick and easy – gotta love Washi Tape!  I started this one with a Very Vanilla panel and ran strips of the Moroccan Designer Washi Tape on a diagonal, just wrapping it around the edge to secure it.

Then I made my little Cozy Critter owls.  I stamped them in Early Espresso and punched them out with the Owl Builder Punch.  I colored each of their scarves – one each in Cajun Craze, Emerald Envy and Delightful Dijon.

cozy-moroccan-critters-here-for-you-2-stamps-n-lingers
I laid the owls out on the card to figure out where to put my sentiment, and then used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to align and stamp the sentiment from Here For You in Dapper Denim.  Then I SNAILd the panel to a Dapper Denim mat (I did use Liquid Glue for the parts with the Washi Tape on it – it doesn’t particularly like the SNAIL).

All that remained was to adhere the Cozy Critter owls with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the card front – told ya it was easy!

cozy-moroccan-critters-here-for-you-3-stamps-n-lingers On the inside, I stamped the Cozy Critter owl again in Early Espresso – this time stamping it off twice before stamping my Very Vanilla panel.  Over that, I added a second Here For You sentiment in Dapper Denim, again using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  Then I added two strips of the Cajun Craze Moroccan Designer Washi Tape.

cozy-moroccan-critters-here-for-you-5-stamps-n-lingers
I SNAILd the panel to its Dapper Denim mat and then into my Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a strip of Moroccan Washi Tape and an Early Espresso Cozy Critter owl (with an Emerald Envy scarf!) on the front…

cozy-moroccan-critters-here-for-you-6-stamps-n-lingers
…and then I covered the envelope flap with more Moroccan Washi Tape – trimming the excess with my Paper Snips.

cozy-moroccan-critters-here-for-you-7-stamps-n-lingers
Et Voila!  I love the Moroccan Washi Tape – the colors are so rich and vibrant – and I love how fast it adds a ton of color and interest.  And this little owl….too stinkin’ cute!  And the sentiments in the Here For You stamp set are great – they can cover a whole gamut of card needs.  Hope you like!

Now….read on down and see what my ordering special is – it’s short-lived, so best get on it! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! A Paisley Time of Year for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2
Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  It’s color challenge week and I hope you’ll take a minute to browse all the projects brought to you by the ladies-who-hop!  With color week – you never know what we’ll come up with!

Here are  the colors we all worked with this week:

13631413_1495511343808769_864869676973586998_n
Now when I first saw that color combo, I looked to the By the Shore DSP and figured that would be the basis for my card.  But I decided to go a different direction, instead.  I pulled out the new Paisleys & Posies bundle:

Pailseys & Posies Bundle - Stamps-N-Lingers
…and combined it with the Host-Exclusive set from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog called Time of Year.  And this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Paisley Time of Year 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers
That’s not DSP there on the card front!  I made that using the Baby-Wipe inking technique.  Cool, huh?  Here’s how I did it.

I laid down my silicon sheet to protect my worktable.  Then I laid a regular old baby wipe down on the sheet.  Using my Dapper Denim and Mint Macaron Ink Refills, I randomly dropped drops of each on the baby wipe – letting it all run together.  Then I used that inked-up wipe as my ink pad.  So every time I inked my Paisleys & Posies stamp, I picked up both colors.  And every time, the colors it stamped were different!

Diaper Wipe Technique - Stamps-N-Lingers
I stamped the paisley image all over a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I added a couple of drops of Calypso Coral ink to the edges of my “ink pad” and used that to ink the little flower from Paisleys & Posies and stamped it around the panel.  I SNAILd it to a Calypso Coral mat.

For my Time of Year sentiment, I stamped that in Dapper Denim ink on Very Vanilla.  I cut it out with a square-sided die from the new Squares Layering Framelits.  It’s matted on a Calypso Coral scalloped-edge square, also cut with the Layering Framelits.

Paisley Time of Year 3 - Stamps-N-Lingers
I also used my baby wipe ink pad to stamp another little image from Paisleys & Posies in the top corner of the sentiment panel.  And I stamped a little circle image – and cut it with the matching die in the Paisley Framelits.  I adhered it with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue in the opposite corner.

Okay – okay – you’re right.  That one wasn’t planned.  I’d stamped a second little image (like in the top right corner) there, but it came out blurry.  Instead of re-doing the whole panel, I covered it up with a little die cut.

Sheesh.  Y’all know me too well! 😉

Paisley Time of <span style=
Using some new Mint Macaron 3/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon, I wrapped a length around the card front, securing it in the back with scotch tape.  Then I popped the sentiment square over it all with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few little embellishments…the first is a doubled-over piece of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim.  The next is a die cut from the Paisley Framelits.  I went back to my baby wipe ink pad, and pressed a piece of Very Vanilla card stock into it…

Diaper Wipe background - Stamps-N-Lingers
I think that’s so cool – I’m going to have to try this and use my resulting panel as a card front one of these days! 🙂  With this one, though, I used the Paisley Framelit die to cut out a shape, which I adhered over the lace trim with more Liquid Glue.

Paisley Time of Year 8 - Stamps-N-Lingers
Finally, I adhered a bow of the Mint Macaron 3/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon with a Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

Paisley Time of Year 1 - Stamps-N-Lingers
On the inside, I added a couple more baby-wipe-inked paisley and flower images from Paisleys & Posies on a Very Vanilla panel.

Paisley Time of Year 5 - Stamps-N-Lingers
I SNAILd it to a Calypso Coral mat and then into my Dapper Denim card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done! 🙂

I added more of the same paisley image to the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope…

Paisley Time of Year 6 - Stamps-N-Lingers
…and again to the envelope flap.  For this, I opened the flap up, masked off the front of the envelope with Sticky Note tape, and stamped all over the flap.

Paisley Time of Year 7 - Stamps-N-Lingers
Et Voila!  I think this is an awfully pretty group of images in this set.  And it works really nicely with the baby wipe technique, don’t you think?  Keep that technique in your kit bag, okay?  It’s a good one! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Branches In My Heart

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  Hope you’re cashing in your Bonus Days coupons and grabbing up the Thoughtful Branches Bundle (if you’re not sure how to redeem them – keep reading, I’ll show you)!!  I spent my Bonus coupons yesterday – on my 2016 Holiday Catalog Pre-order!  Whooooo-hoooo!  I indulged myself and got the Priority 2-day shipping, so….hopefully I ‘ll see a big box o’ goodies on….Thursday?  I’m going to try to contain myself and take pictures of everything for y’all before I tear into it and start making cards!

I make no promises.  It’s going to be like…Christmas in August!

Right this very second, though, I want to tempt you again with the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  This one just uses the stamp set – not the Beautiful Branches Thinlits.  Add in a little Serene Scenery DSP and that’s all that I needed.  Take a look-see:
