Stampin’ Up! Under the Sea of Textures Sneak Peek

Good Monday, y’all.

I mean – it’s definitely Monday.  I guess the “good” part remains to be seen, huh?? 🙂

So – if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, thanks for spending part of your weekend with me!  I do appreciate it!  If not, but you’d like to watch, here’s the sort-of-but-not-really instant replay on YouTube!

One the of really fun new Suites that you’ll see in June, in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, is the Tranquil Textures Suite.  It includes, among other things, the Sea of Textures stamp set, the bundled Under the Sea Framelits and the absolutely gorgeous Tranquil Textures DSP.  I used all of those in my card for today.  Take a look-see:

I used the simple Freshly Made Sketches challenge for my layout.

And my color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started by embossing some of the Balmy Blue paper from the Tranquil Textures DSP (available on 1 June) in the Seaside TIEF, then I matted it on a piece of Pineapple Punch card stock (one of the new 2018-2019 In Colors!) for the card front.

The next layer is a second design from Tranquil Textures, matted on Pineapple Punch and adhered with Fast Fuse to the card front.

I used dies – most of them, actually! 🙂 – to create the pieces of my collage.  I cut the “netting” from some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, and some coral and grass from Vellum card stock, Soft Seafoam (a beautiful new Subtle in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog), and Tranquil Tide.  I also cut some Soft Seafoam and Tranquil Tide sand dollars!

My octopus came about with some help from my Stamparatus.  I first inked it in Pineapple Punch.  Then I sponged his arms with Tranquil Tide – and stamped it again!  Then I cut him with his die.

As I started to build my collage, the first layer is the Dazzling Diamonds net, followed by some Crumb Cake Twine from the new Nature’s Poem Baker’s Twine pack.  I used as couple of Glue Dots to wind a few loops.

Then I began to add the pieces and parts with Liquid Glue.  With the coral and grasses down, I added a sentiment.  I stamped the Sea Of Textures sentiment in Tranquil Tide on Whisper White, then used a banner die from the new Lakeside Framelits (coming on 1 June) to cut it out.  I snipped a little off the left end – to make it shorter – and added it with Dimensionals.

I popped the octopus on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – both regular and mini sized.  Finally – I added Sand Dollars and Starfish with Liquid Glue.  To finish off the card front, I added a bevy of beautiful Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (yep – 1 June).

On the inside, I added a Sea of Textures “net” image in Pineapple Punch and a couple of Tranquil Tide corals to the bottom of a Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pineapple Punch mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added more Sea of Textures images in Pineapple Punch and Tranquil Tide…

…and adhered some Balmy Blue Tranquil Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love a collage card – maybe y’all have figured that out about me?? 😉 – and this Sea of Textures and Under the Sea framelits bundle just begs to be used for that kind of card!  I hope you like and that this one is high up on your wish list for June!! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix

Well, as I type this on Sunday morning, it’s raining.  And the temeprature is dropping again.

So…pretty much Spring in GA!

80, sunny and gorgeous one day – and chilly and wet the next!

Of course, it’s also why everything is blooming and turning green – so…it is what it is!

On Friday, which was an “80, sunny and gorgeous day”, we (Finny and I) cleaned out the horses’ water trough.

Definitely one of Finn’s favorite barn chores!

He really puts his whole self into this one!

Stampin’ Up! Under the Sea of Textures Video Sneak Peek

Mornin’, my peeps!  We’re half-way thru the weekend and I hope yours is going well for you!  Finn and I had a good day yesterday.  Started with a trip to the Farmer’s Market – which he thought was awesome!  Lots of pettings and one booth had dog treats.  Which he graciously agreed to sample.

And then made sure I got their card.  Cuz…yummo!

Then he went off to camp and I went shopping for dog food, cat food and stall bedding.

It’s a glamorous life, y’all!

So – as is the norm these days, we’ll do a video this evening over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  BUT – it’s going to be at 7pm Eastern (an hour early!!) so I can go to our team meeting at 8!  Make note of the earlier time, okay?  And  – here’s a sneaky peek at what we’ll be working on!

I think you’ll enjoy this card – it uses some new goodies that will come in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!

Hope to see you tonight.  Right here.  At SEVEN PM EASTERN!

Just sayin’.

Finn Fan Fix

Skyler came to visit the other day with her Grandma.

Finn was overjoyed.

Except when she cried.

THAT really worries him!  He comes flying to find someone with thumbs to take care of the problem!!

He’s also not too sure that burping the baby is really a thing.

Looks a lot like beating the baby to him…

So he keeps a pretty close eye on the proceedings.

And then double checks “when it’s over” to be sure all is well.

They’ve got quite the love affair going on!

When we went to the Farmer’s Market yesterday, he saw something and insisted that I get it for his little friend.

You know – to remind her of him.

Only – you know.  Pink…

Stampin’ Up! Make a Difference Under the Sea

Mornin’, y’all1  Hope you’ve got a great weekend ahead of you!  Finny and I have some plans – we’re going to hit the Farmer’s Market and then he’s going to go to camp for a while so I can do some shopping!  When I called to make his reservation, I asked if there was room for Finn.  She asked my name – said they’ve got a few “Finn’s” who come.  When I told her my name, I also said – it’s the Aussie.  And SHE replied with “OH – I was hoping it was him – I just LOVE him!”  It’s a burden he bears with stoic dignity.

And a madly wiggling wriggler!

My card today is actually three cards.  I used the new Memories & More Small Notecards and Envelopes, the Make a Difference stamp set (which will be available to customers on 1 May in the Share What You Love early release) and … the octopus die from the Under The Sea Framelits.  Take a look-see:

I told you I was going to do it, y’all!  It was a moral imperative!  At least it was for me – a Trekkie from way back.  And I’m talking the real Trek – I’m Team Kirk all the way!

The layout for these cards is from this week’s TGIF Challenge Sketch.

So – in case you didn’t see my unveiling video the other night, there’s an octopus die in the new Under the Sea Framelits (avail on 1 June!) that happens to cut a perfect little United Federation of Planets (I’m a total geek!) emblem.

These are easy-peasy cards to make – it just takes a minute to cut 15 of the emblems from Gold Foil! 🙂

I made the card fronts in Command, Science and Security colors (aka Crushed Curry, Marina Mist and Real Red) – all matted on Basic Black.  Once everything was matted up, I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere lengths of Basic Black 3/8 Shimmer Ribbon around them.

Each of the Gold Foil emblems is adhered with Liquid Glue to a 1/2″ Basic Black circle that I punched with the 1/2″ Circle Punch and popped onto the card fronts with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Each card got a different sentiment.  The Crushed Curry card – I see as a great card for a graduation – or a new job…

I made the front sentiment using the letters in the Make A Difference stamp set (you’re going to want this set – and you can get it on 1 May!) – I stamped the words in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White and snipped them out.  Then I edged them with my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker and added them with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the In the Trees stamp set (2018 Occasions Catalog).  Then I used a cut-out of the emblem as a stencil and colored it with the Crushed Curry marker.  It’s outlined with my Journaling Pen!

For the Real Red card – I stamped a sentiment from the Host-exclusive Yay You in Tuxedo Black.  On the inside, I left it blank except for the Real Red emblem…

Finally – my personal favorite.  I used the letters in Make a Difference again, stamping the most iconic of Mr. Spock’s wise words.  After snipping them, I edged them with the Marina Mist Marker and adhered them.  On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday.

Each card front got some Silver star-shaped Metallic Enamel Shapes and the cards were done!

On the envelopes – I did three stenciled emblems on the fronts – all three envelopes are the same…

…and then the backs all got an emblem to match their card, as you saw above!

Et Voila!  A fun and easy pack of notecards for your favorite Trekkie – from totally-not-Star-Trek stamp sets and framelits!  I love the Make A Difference stamp set – its’ got the font you see plus a larger – much more ornate! – font set.  And I know I’ll be making an actual octopus – soon! – with the wonderful Under the Sea Framelits and it’s bundled Sea of Textures stamp set!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

I mowed for a while on Friday – it was a gorgeous day and…the grass was getting tall in the back.

And – I like riding the mower.  I was mostly in the shade.  I had a drink to keep me cool.

Very nice way to spend an hour!

Until.

The woof showed up.

It was very scary.  I was worried for the safety of the ponies.

You can understand my concern…

You can see Cady was almost beside herself with fear.

Must be very frustrating to not inspire any more concern in the herd-ees than he does… 😉
