Stampin’ Up! Thoughtful Banners Outdoor Adventure Cruise – and Blog Candy!

Good morning and happy World Card Making Day!  This is kind of “our” day, huh?  All over the world, crafters are crafting and makers are making.  And carding!  I hope you’ve got something fun planned – even if it’s just some time in your craft room making something pretty! 🙂

To help celebrate WCMD, I’m giving away some blog candy to help you make great cards!  Read on down to see how to enter!  You’ll also see some Stampin’ Up! celebrations starting today – plenty of details down below!

Today is also the start of the Stampin’ Up! year – 1 Oct 16 to 30 Sept 17.  In every year, demonstrators can earn an Incentive Trip.  The trip in 2017 is to Phuket, Thailand.  I’m too late to earn that one.  But!  The Incentive Trip in 2018 is a Cruise to Alaska!

I want to go on a Cruise.

I want to go to Alaska.

A cruise – to Alaska?  Yep.  Perfect!  So….my goal for 2017 is to earn that cruise!!  Everyone keep your fingers crossed that I can do the work and earn my way to a fun-filled Alaskan Cruise, okay?? 🙂

So – I made a card today that evokes that Alaskan Cruise.  I used some Outdoor Adventure die cuts, a touch of Swirly Scribbles, a bit of Serene Scenery DSP and a fun little sentiment from Thoughtful Banners.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Penned & Painted Jar of Love

It’s FRIIIIIDDDAAAAAAY.  Which means just gotta get thru this one last day and wake up and go home tomorrow!

Right after I schlep all my stuff into my car in the morning.  Bleh! 🙁  But….HOME!!! 🙂

I’m pretty sure when I get there, and “accidentally” call Duck Duck, she’ll come flying waddling home just as fast as her little orange web-footed legs will carry her!

Or not.

Guess we’ll see, huh?

I have a card to share today that’s a sort-of-CASE from a project I saw on Pinterest, from Anja at Ophelia Crafts!  I did put a little of my own spin on it, but I sure did glean some good ideas from her project!  Check it here if you get a shot!  I used the pretty Penned and Painted stamp set to work with the Jar of Love and Everyday Jars bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Always an Adventure Birthday Card

Good morning!  Hope your week is going well.

So – I suspect all of you have “that” friend.  The one that, no matter how long a time goes between visits, when you do get back in the same room, you take back up right where you left off.  A year before or ten.  Doesn’t matter.

“That” friend for me, Sally, is someone I met all the way back in college.  Yes – a million years ago.  We were riding counselors at a Girl Scout camp in the mountains in Colorado.  Our first meeting was in the horse corral meeting the string of horses who’d just arrived for the summer.

I thought she was totally goofy!  (I was wrong) (Well, mostly – she’s a little goofy!!)

She probably thought I was a total geek/dork/stick-in-the-mud.  (She was right!) (I’m a lot cooler now.) (No.  Really!)

Within days – we were “those friends”.  The ones who spent the entire summer together.  And the next summer.  Playing with horses.  And kids.  And going to see movies on the weekends.  And eating s’mores.  And singing John Denver songs by campfires (possibly we were both a little dorky).

It was….wonderful!

And we’ve been “those friends” ever since.

So – as her birthday approaches, I thought I’d make a card reminiscent of our first times together.  And, as you might surmise, the Always an Adventure stamp set and its matching dies, Outdoor Adventure, were the perfect choice!  Take a look-see:

No – that’s not a horse.  No, we never saw any bears.  It’s an artistic rendition – not a photo! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Best Birds for the Birthday Theme Blog Hop!

Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.  We’re doing a Theme Hop and today is for Birthdays!  All of us will have a very different idea of what makes a birthday card, I’m sure, so I hope you’ll take the time to check them all out when you’re done here! 🙂

I’ve got a bit of a bird theme going on – maybe it’s Duck Duck’s influence.  She’s kind of a big deal, don’t you know?!  I didn’t use any more goose images, though – instead I went to the new – and pretty! – Best Birds stamp set, with it’s matching Thinlits, Birds & Blooms (which I got as a bundle and so saved 10%!).  Add in some Thoughtful Banners and Pop of Pink DSP and this is what I came up with!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Jars of Love for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  We have a fun sketch and I’m excited to share my card with you today – as are all the ladies who put their crafty talents to the challenge!  I hope you’ll take the time to check them all out when you’re done here! 🙂

Before we get started, though – I do want to remind you that Stampin’ Up! Bonus Days start today. 🙂  You can scroll down to the bottom of this post to get all the details!

Okay – on to the card….I mentioned that we all used a fun sketch for our shares today.  This is what it looks like:

July 7 - 2016
When I saw this sketch, I kind of immediately thought that a doily would be a great element to use for the large circle.  Well – “immediately” after I was trying to figure out how big a hole to cut in the rectangle to make the small circle.  And what stamped image would fit in said small cut out circle!  After making my brain hurt for a minute, I gave up on that particular thought and went back to my doily idea.  I grabbed some Floral Boutique DSP and my go-to dies – the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.  Then I added some florals from the Jar of Love and Everyday Jars Framelits.  And this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Swirly Jars of Love 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers
I fell back on a classic color combo here:  Night of Navy, Whisper White and Pink Pirouette.  Hard to miss with that one, heh?

To begin, I SNAILd a piece of Floral Boutique DSP to a Night of Navy mat.  Well, actually two – the card front (polka dot) and the small rectangle (stripes).  I pulled out one of the new Delicate White Doilies and used a little bit of Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front – wrapping it slightly around to the back of the panel.

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Celebration!

Good morning, good morning!  As we head into this three-day weekend to celebrate the birth of our nation, I figured I’d share a quick and easy, patriotic-themed card with you.  And since I know you’re getting ready to head out of town, or get to the grocery store to buy ingredients for the cook-out on Monday…I’ll get right to it! 🙂

I used the Swirly Scribbles Framelits and some silvery stars and the Thoughtful Banners bundle – along with the Lucky Stars TIEF.   Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Oh, Hello Swirly Bird!

Happy Monday, y’all!  I hope you’re all ready to go back to work!  I’m thinkin’ I may take a day or two off.  Maybe three.  Just to make a few cards, perhaps do some organizing and cleaning up around the house.  Tend my garden – which, OBTW, is growing great guns!!  I need to plant some seeds and get them started.  I’ll take a picture for you for tomorrow.

So, yesterday I pulled out all my retired punches and TIEFs and Framelits and Thinlits and ribbons and all the etc’s.  I stuck them in a box with the retired stamps and punches I already had in there.  In a few days, I’m going to post my Retired SU! products page – so, stay tuned and get some good deals, huh? 😉

Today’s card uses two new stamp sets – Swirly Bird and Thoughtful Banners – to create a quick, fun little card for any occasion.  Take a look-see:

Oh, Hello Swirly Bird 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I played along with three challenges today!  The first, for the layout, was the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #239: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! A Grateful Bunch of Swirly Birds for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I hope you’ll settle back and spend a little time checking out all the projects we ladies-who-hop have built for you today!

We all worked on a sketch this week…

Now – this one should have given me an “aha” moment.  But my brain was blocked.  Don’t know why, exactly, but it was.  So I ended up making a card from an idea that I finally forced myself to have.

And I hated the card.  It really wasn’t awful, but…I just really didn’t like it at all!  My time was pretty limited though, so…I thought “what the heck” I’ll just use it anyway.  Here it is:
