Stampin’ Up! Timeless Textures Stitched All Around


Friday before a 3-day weekend!  Heck – some of you may already be off and making it a 4-day!

Please be safe – enjoy the time off!  And remember the reason for the holiday! Thank a vet if you see one, okay?

My card today turned out to be relatively patriotic – in a sort of non-traditional color way.  I used the Stitched All Around stamp set and bundled Stitched Labels Framelits (coming on 1 June!) to make a fun thank you card with the help of some Timeless Textures splotches.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Wishes on Brusho Textures

Happy Happy Friday!  It’s a Springy day here in GA – warmer again, with some rain coming but a good weekend ahead!  Finn-y and I may hit the Puppy Tubs tomorrow cuz…we’re headed up to Amy’s for a team meeting on Sunday!  He is so looking forward to eating lunch with the ladies and making a few projects! And he really likes to be looking his best for his fans! 🙂

My card today was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest, made by Anne Matasci – you can check out her beautiful card right here!

I went a very different color direction than Anne did, choosing greens and neutrals for a very organic look.  And I used the Lovely Wishes stamp set for my floral images.  Take a look-see:

And the reason I aimed for this color scheme is the The Card Concept challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Canson 90lb Cold-Pressed Watercolor paper to make my “tiles”.  With my Aqua Painter, I wet the paper pretty liberally.  Then I sprinkled it with the Moss Green powder in the Brusho set.  Using the Aqua Painter, I squished the color around to spread it and soften it.  Finally, I sprinkled some more of the Brusho on and left those “bursts” alone.  I carefully soaked up some extra water with the edge of a paper towel and let the panel dry naturally.

When the paper was dry, I cut it into 9 – 1 1/8″ x 1 3/8″ tiles.  Then I pulled out my Soft Suede ink pad and Timeless Textures stamp set.  I used the flourish image full strength on three tiles, then I stamped three more with the dots image and three more in the grid image in stamped-off-once ink.

I stamped various images from the Lovely Wishes stamp set on the tiles in Always Artichoke ink and filled in the leaves with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I built the card front with an Old Olive panel and adhered the tiles with Liquid Glue.  There’s a gap in the tiles under the ribbon and sentiment banner.

I Fast Fuse’d the card front to a Very Vanilla mat, then wrapped a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon around it all – covering the gap in the tiles – and securing it in the back with Fast Fuse.  I looped four strands of the burlap ribbon that I’d pulled out of another length and secured them to the card front – under the ribbon – with a couple of Glue Dots.

For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from Lovely Wishes in Soft Suede on a strip of Very Vanilla, edged it with my Old Olive Marker, and adhered it to the ribbon with Liquid Glue.

The embellishment is a Linen Thread double-loop Billie Moan bow (sorry – it had to be done!), a tiny bow from Very Vanilla Solid Baker’s Twine, a True Gentleman Button, and two Touches of Nature Elements leaves.  And that was it for the card front.

On the inside, I simply stamped some more of the Lovely Wishes leaves and flowers in Always Artichoke on a Very Vanilla panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to an Old Olive and Very Vanilla mat and into my Soft Suede card base, Fast Fuse’d the front on as well, and the card was done.

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Lovely Wishes in Always Artichoke on the front…

…and on the back, straddling the edge of the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I’m still not very comfortable with the Brusho, but…I loved this technique with the small Lovely Wishes floral images and bits of Timeless Textures.  It turned out very organic and collage-y and…I hope you like it as much as I do!

Finn Fan Fix

Very early on, when Finn-y was just a young ‘un, I taught him a cardinal rule.

Never.  And I mean never ever ever – go in a horse stall.

Empty or otherwise.

Two reasons.

First?  Poop.  Horse poop.  Lots of it.  Which, in dog-land, is an all-you-can-eat buffet at the Golden Corral.


That’s me, not him.

Second?  And even more importantly?  Horse.  Big ole horse who might be eating and might not take too kindly to a goofy dog lurking about in his bedroom.

So – that’s the rule.

Finn follows it pretty religiously.


No, Mom.  I was not in the stall vacuuming up Bo’s dropped feed.

I don’t know where this horse stall bedding all over my nose came from.

It depends on your definition of…”in“!

Now.  About that bite of carrot…

Stampin’ Up! Love is the Reason for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop


Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  We all worked on a sketch challenge this week, so be sure to check out everyone’s project, okay?

Here’s our sketch…

I went back to the Special Reason stamp set and bundled Stylish Stems Framelits and called on the So In Love stamp set to help me make a nice Anniversary Card with a fun shaker element.  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! Fabulous Flora Super Simple Notecard

Hey hey, there, y’all!  Hope your week is going well so far.

My share for today is so simple – both in appearance and make-ability that I’m almost embarrassed to show it to you.  But – I will, cuz, for all that, it’s also really pretty!  I used the Fabulous Flora stamp set – which is another of the host-exclusive stamp sets available in the upcoming catalog.  

Fabulous Flora Host set - Stamps-N-Lingers

And I added just the tiniest bit of Timeless Textures!  Take a look-see:

See what I mean?  I didn’t even use an inner liner or an envelope liner on this one – shut the front door!  Where’s Mary and what have you done with her??! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Sassy Salutations and Timeless Textures Thanks

Happy Friday!  We made it – again!  All you have to do is make it thru this day and you get two days off!

Unless you don’t and then that means you’re on some weird work schedule.  If that’s you… I’m sorry.  I didn’t mean to get so excited about a 48 hour period that you have no reason to be excited about! 🙂

So today’s card is another special request.  Here was the criteria:

  • Thank you card to a Stepmother for a Mother’s Day gift
  • Likes blue
  • Likes frilly and fussy and busy
  • Likes Victorian things

As I sat at my desk the other night looking – slightly bleary-eyed – at my stamps and papers and punches…I finally came up with something to use as a starting point.  A piece of the Birthday Bouquet DSP – the one with the blue roses.  And I went from there.

This isn’t a clean and simple card – that wouldn’t have answered the mail at all!  And it occurs to me that I’ve been sort of inundating you with, what appear to be, 1000-step cards these past few days.  So, tomorrow’s card will be clean and simple.  I promise! 🙂

I finally settled on the pretty font in the Sassy Salutations set (retiring very very soon!) and the Timeless Textures stamp set.  And lots of embellishing.  Take a look-see:

Sassy Victorian Thank You 5 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I started with a plain piece of Whisper White card stock and I stamped the filigree image from Timeless Textures in Pool Party all over.  Then I used the edge image – in Sahara Sand – all the way around the edge of the panel.  Finally, I added several of the splotches image in Sahara Sand – stamping off once and then stamping multiple times without re-inking.

Stampin’ Up! Sitting Here Timeless Love Anniversary

Hey Mike Mike Mike Mike MIKE!!  Do you know what day it is?

Well, of course you do cuz I started the post out with Hey Mike Mike Mike Mike MIKE!

Yes – it’s Hawmp Day!  AND it’s also just about the half way point of my sojourn here in Savannah!  And I’m ready!  Not that I’m not enjoying my time here – the people here are fun and the food is certainly spectacular…

But – I am so looking forward to the end of the 4:30 alarm!  Or…a 5:30 alarm.  Or any alarm at all!!  I do just fine when I wake up cuz it’s light outside.  The alarm, though, has become my enemy.  I’m getting downright pissy with Siri when I tell her to turn the alarm on for the next day! 😉

Waaahhhh – whine much, Mary?!?

You came for a card and that’s what I’m fixin’ to give you!  Now – this card isn’t one of my quick and easy’s.  Nope – this one took some time and it’s completely my fault.  All was going along pretty fast – even given the masking I needed to do – and then I pulled out the Venetian Crochet Trim.  And got all creative with it.  But – I’m getting ahead of myself!  Be warned, though – the steps are easy, but there’s a few of them so, this post may be kinda long…. 😉

This was a special request from a friend who needed a 63rd wedding anniversary card.  I used the Large Number Framelits, and the new Sitting Here stamp set (she saw the last card I did with it and liked it!).  Timeless Love – a current stamp set – lent me the sentiment.  And I pulled out some of the pretty Affectionately Yours DSP. Take a look-see:

Sitting Here Timeless Love 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I started by tearing the edges off a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I also cut a heart from a piece of Very Vanilla, using the largest die in the new Sweet & Sassy Framelits.  Then I tore the edges all the way around the heart.  Using a tiny little bit of SNAIL, I lightly adhered the heart to the card front panel.

Stampin’ Up! Layered Letters and Another Sneak Peek!

So, as I write this Sunday morning post on Saturday afternoon – I’m ridiculously tickled with the return of the Hummingbirds!  I’ve had my feeders out for a few weeks now and we’ve had one little dude coming by for the last couple.  Today – we’ve got TWO of them.  One – I’m pretty sure – is the same that’s been visiting.  I can tell cuz he’s green.  And his wings flap really really fast.  And he’s tiny.  So I know it’s him! 😉  But now he’s got a little friend – this one has the red band under his chin.  I just love watching them on the feeders.  

Does make it hard to wash dishes though, at least without getting water everywhere cuz I’m so busy trying to peer out the window and wash at the same time.  That’s multi-tasking.  Sometimes it works better than others! 🙂

Anywhoooo – on to the cards for today.  Yes – cards!  I have one that I made to share and two that I brought home from OnStage.  They were the Make-and-Takes, so they’ll be a good little peek at some more new Annual Catalog things.

But first, the card I dreamed up all by myself! 🙂  My friend needed another card – this time for a young (?) lady who was trying to learn to ride a motorcycle.  With her boyfriend.  They were apparently on separate bikes, riding slowly thru their neighborhood while she was getting the hang of riding.  He got a little ahead of her, she throttled up – a little more enthusiastically than she’s planned.  The bike jumped a little and she subsequently throttled up even more….and went into the curb.  The bike stopped.  She didn’t.  Here’s the kicker.

She wasn’t wearing a helmet.

Seriously?!?  Learning to ride – and no helmet.  No helmet is a bad plan for any rider, but a new rider??  She’s danged lucky to just be alive, let alone without serious injury.

So – I was asked for a card.  Now, if this was about 5 weeks from now….I might have a motorcycle stamp (that’s a hint….).  But not now.  And I couldn’t make the bike in Pedal Pusher even sort of look like a motorcycle.

I decided to go with more of a….road rash….theme.  I used some Layered Letters, a little Timeless Textures and a nice little sentiment from And Many More (sadly retiring!).  Take a look-see:

Layered Letters Happy Healing 2 - Stamps-N-Lingers

It’s a little hard to tell – black is really tough to photograph! – but the card base is black, and the card front is Blackberry Bliss.  I really went for it with the bruised and battered theme!

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch and Petite Pairs Any Occasion card

Good morning! By the time you read this, I should be (all things being equal!) sitting on an airplane with Amy Koenders. Getting ready to wing our way to Salt Lake City. OnStage, baby!

Now, for those of you who don’t know me – I’m not really a “whoo-hoo”-er. I’ve been known to be a “WHOOP!”-er – but only at horse shows and only when my fave gaited Saddlebred is passing in front of me and I’m showing my support.

I. Don’t. Whoo-hoo. At least not “for real” – I might do it in jest…but that’s it!

Miss Amy said a scary thing the other day while we were on a Google Hangout meeting. It had to do with her plan to whoo-hoo on the plane.

A Lot.


I’m very much hoping she was joshin’ me! Otherwise, I’ll be obligated to disavow her. At least for the duration of the flight! Do lots of sleeping or pretending to sleep. Put my headphones in – hopefully there’s a good movie…

We’ll see what happens!

Any-hooch. Let’s talk about my card for today, shall we? 🙂

I went back to my favorite bundle in the Occasions catalog – the Grateful Bunch bundle. I played with some watercoloring and punching and and some Timeless Textures and then I added a sentiment from Petite Pairs. Fair warning….put yer shades on and take a look-see:

We had a Blog Candy Winner – from a lot of comments. Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by! Read on and I’ll share the winner’s name at the end of this post!
