Stampin’ Up! Night Before a Holly Jolly Christmas Sneak Peek

Good morning, my peeps!  Hope your weekend is going well!  Mine has been uneventful – which is good.  But…not awfully productive.  Which is…not so good! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not – but you’d like to see what I did with the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and bundled Jolly Season dies – here’s the replay!

I used the Holly Jolly Bundle with some Night Before Christmas DSP and Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack stickers to create a fun 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek for you.  Take a look-see:

I – rather loosely! – used the sketch from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch for the layout. 🙂

And the color scheme is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started with some Santa Hat paper from the Night Before Christmas DSP (available on 4 Sept), matted on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

I took a small piece of Very Vanilla and, using a Sponge Dauber, inked it up with Pretty Peacock.  Then I matted it on Cherry Cobbler and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and picked a likely sentiment – that’s just ONE of the fun Christmas-y stickers in the pack, y’all! – and adhered it at the bottom of the panel.

With the Jolly Season Die, I cut Santa and his reindeer from Soft Suede and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added a Cherry Cobbler rhinestone from the new Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the sentiment banner.  Then, cuz…hello?  Rudolph??  I colored a small Pearl Basic Jewel with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and added it to the lead reindeer’s schnoozle. 😉

Finally – I added a bunch of new Snowflake Sequins with teensy dabs of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set in Pretty Peacock on a Very Vanilla panel.  In the bottom corner, I added Santa in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – then colored him and his toys with my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Light and Dark Soft Suede, Light Pretty Peacock and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  I also used my Cherry Cobbler and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Soft Suede card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Holly Jolly Christmas Santa on the front…

…and some more of the Santa Hat Night Before Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a fun suite!  Night Before Christmas – with the Holly Jolly Christmas bundle and wonderful DSP – not to mention the Memories & More Card Pack (and there’s notecards and envelopes, too!) – is a great addition to your Christmas card-making repertoire!  I hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Merry Moose and Plaid Sneak Peek

Good morning! Happy mid-way-thru-the-weekend!  Hope it’s going well – it’s a freakin’ steam bath here!  Yikes.  I am SO ready for some Fall weather.  Either that or I need to build an underground bunker. 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how I made today’s card – and get a few more looks at some goodies in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog – here’s the replay!

From the instant I saw the Merry Moose stamp set – and the bundled Moose Punch (seriously?!? 🙂 ) – I knew this would be at the top end of my list for this really awesome new catalog!  And then I saw the Wrapped in Plaid DSP and…well.  It was a moose-y marriage made in heaven!  Take a look-see:

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

I started by building the background – using the new Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (coming on 4 Sept in the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  I used the trees mask and a sponge with Crumb Cake ink to first create the trees.  Leaving the mask in place, I then sponged lightly over the top with new Golden Glitz Delicata Ink (also new in the 2019 Holiday catty!).  When it was dry, I matted the panel on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

Next I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler plaid paper from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP, using a square Stitched Shapes Die.  I also cut a same-size piece of Very Vanilla.  I adhered the plaid square at a diagonal onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

On the Very Vanilla square, I stamped the large tree from Merry Moose in Shaded Spruce – twice.  Then I used the small tree image – and stamped-off-once Shaded Spruce – to add a few background trees.  I inked the large tree with the Golden Glitz ink and stamped over the top of the images.  Then I adhered the square to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Trim across the panel.

I cut a small Rectangle Stitched Dies shape from Very Vanilla, stamped the Merry Moose sentiment in Cherry Cobbler, and adhered it to the trim with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the moose in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I used my Light and Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to color his body and Light and Dark Gray Granite for his antlers.  I cut him out with the Moose Punch and, using Liquid Glue and some Mini Dimensionals (under the antlers), adhered him next to the sentiment.

I stamped the scarf in Shaded Spruce on Very Vanilla, fussy cut it and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I added some Shaded Spruce jewels from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (these are coming soon, too!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment in Cherry Cobbler to a Very Vanilla panel.  Then I did a few more Shaded Spruce and Golden Glitz trees and some “ground/snow” in stamped-off-once Crumb Cake.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Merry Moose trees on the front…

…and some more of that wunnermus Wrapped in Plaid on the envelope flap.

Et Voila.  Moose.  Trees.  Sentiments.  An adorable racoon.  AND a punch??  Yep – the Merry Moose bundle is going to be a heavy favorite this season, I am 100% confident!  And if you pair it with plaid?  Oh my.  I hope you like!

Did you guys know that yesterday was – apparently – National Spoil Your Dog Day?

No – I didn’t either.  Until I got an e-mail from Chewy or IHeartDogs or some such.

So…if I understand this correctly…we’re only supposed to spoil our dog on ONE DAY OUT OF THE YEAR?!?

Finn gives this stupid idea about a million paws DOWN!

Maybe a National Spoil Your Cat Day (and maybe then only once every 5 or 6 years – if you MUST have a cat).

But – not for dogs.

Dogs must be spoiled every.  Single.  Day.

Yesterday, in order to ensure that happened – Finn got me up twice on Friday night to go out.  This is unheard of in our house.  He simply never has to go out once he’s hit the sack.

THIS is normal – all night long – with nary a twitch nor a wiggle.  Probably some snoring, but that’s about it.

So I was on high alert on Saturday morning and, sure enough, appears he had a little tummy upset.

The 2 teaspoons of Pepto Bismol (YUK, mom – what the HECK!?!) was not even sort of well received.

Chicken and rice in the Mealthy Multi-Pot was the more (much more!) palatable remedy.  Dump it in – a quick 3 minutes on high and then sit until I got back in from doing the horses and…

I’ll feed this out and I’m quite sure it will settle his little tummy right down.

Also I’ll be a rock-star AND – will have fulfilled the requirement to spoil my dog for this year.  Winner winner chicken-and-rice dinner!

Phew! 😅 Don’t have to do THAT again for 364 more days! What a relief! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Winds of Change for a Friend

Happy Sunday, my peeps!  I hope your weekend is going well.  And I hope that MY weekend has been productive.  My list is long – and the little check boxes…too empty, I fear!  But – Wednesday is coming and it will be what it will be, right?  Regardless of what is – or is NOT – done, we’ll be leaving on a jet plane.

Hopefully one with four engines.

Just sayin’! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Live Facebook video, I appreciate you spending part of YOUR weekend with me.  And this is where I’d usually say – “If not – but you’d like to see how I made today’s card – then…here’s the almost-Memorex version on my YouTube channel.”  But THIS week, apparently my video stopped recording about 1 minute in.  Not entirely sure why but…it’s gone! 🙁

So – we’ll have to do this old-school! 🙂

I played with a lovely new set called Winds of Change – and used a sort-of-Double-Time technique.  Take a look-see:

Pretty image – makes ya want to click your clogs.

Or have some Anderson Pea Soup….

Not everyone’s gonna get than one! 😉

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

And the color pallete is from the Inspire. Create.  Challenge.

I started with a card-front-sized piece of Whisper White card stock and, using my Stamparatus, stamped the image from the new Winds of Change stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I laid a smaller strip over the top and stamped the image again.

And then…I…let…it…dry.

For a good loooooong time! 🙂

Once it was good and dry, I used Stampin’ Blends in Purple Posy, Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock to color the flowers – making sure to get the flowers on the larger panel fully colored (where they’d be visible!), too.  I used my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write Marker to highlight portions of the windmill.

I used my Stamparatus – and the acetate from the now-retired Stamp-A-Ma-Jig – to add the sentiment from Winds of Change in Terracotta Tile ink.  Then I matted both panels on Seaside Spray card stock.

I popped the narrow strip onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – making sure to align the image!  Then I added a few 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another floral image from Winds of Change in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.  Then I added another little Terracotta Tile dot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Seaside Spray mat and into my Terracotta Tile card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the sweet spray of tulips on the front…

…and I added some Terracotta Tile paper (with scripty writing on it!) from the 2019-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This wonderful new Winds of Change hits all the right notes – gorgeous flowers – beautiful sentiments in lovely fonts!  Stampin’ Up! really hit it out of the park (the TULIP park)!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Parcels & Petals Gift Box Video Tutorial

Hey guys!  Happy Sunday – and happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!  I hope you don’t get a tie today.

Unless you WANT a tie – then I totally hope that’s what you get!

So – if y’all were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not – you’ll probably want to watch this video!

In the video, I’m going to show how to make the cute little gift box with the dies in the new Perfect Parcels Die set – which is bundled with the Parcels & Petals stamp set in the new catalog!

I made a couple three little boxes with the die set – you can see all of them in the video! – but they all have a belly band created with the gorgeous new Pressed Petals Specialty DSP!

The box itself is made with some card stock – in this case Night of Navy.

And then the belly band is a simple 3 1/4″ x 8″ piece of Designer paper – in this case…Pressed Petals!

I wrapped some Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the box and then tied a “faux bow”.  In the video, be sure to watch how I tied the bow – I give you a tip for tying faux bows with ribbon that has two different sides!

Finally, I made a little tag with the Delightful Tag Topper and Detailed Trio Punches.  I used So Saffron – and stamped the flowers from Parcels & Petals (the sample you see above in Night of Navy – the ones in the video in Rococo Rose).

The sentiment is from Parcels & Petals and cut with the die in Perfect Parcels.

 

Et Voila!  It’s a pretty easy little box to make using the dies and stamps in the Parcels & Petals Bundle – especially after you see it done!  So…watch the video and you’ll be on your way!  I hope you like!

So…even with the scissoring and the thinning…when the Man decides to swim…sigh.

That’s not easy to dry, people.  And he never – EVER – wants to stay OUTSIDE after he’s had a dip.  He wants to come into the A/C with the family (specifically with the Mom).

Who am I to deny that face?

Stampin’ Up! Handwritten Parcels & Petals Sneak Peek

Good mornin’, y’all!  Happy Sunday!  Hope you’re enjoying your long weekend.  And remembering WHY we have one! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending part of the Holiday with me!  If not, but you’d like the deets and to see the video in replay mode…here ’tis!

For this one, I pulled out a sweet little bundle from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog (can you believe it’s less than two weeks away – 9 days, to be exact!) called Parcels & Petals.  And I paired it with the Handwritten background stamp set – which is carrying over (meaning you can get it right now!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia Lane Thanks Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I’m doing normal Sunday stuff…laundry…card making…getting Mexican food for dinner (Cinco de Mayo, you know!).  And hoping this is my last Sunday in Maryland!

Avengers was excellent.  That’s all I’m going to say.  Except… I hope Wayne wants to see it, too, so I can go a second time! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see the replay, here it is on my YouTube channel!

One of the prettiest of the new suites (in a catalog chock-a-block full of pretty new suites!) is Magnolia Lane.  And that’s where my eye landed for this card.  I used the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and the Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes, plus the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and bundled Magnolia Memories Dies.  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of printed vellum from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack, and used my Stampin’ Blends in Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink to color the BACK of the vellum.  That creates a stained glass look!  Then I used Glue Dots – “hidden” under the colored portions – to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand panel for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large and gorgeous magnolia image from Good Morning Magnolia in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I used the Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Blends again.  I cut the flower with the matching die from the Magnolia Memory Die set.

I also cut a few leaves from Mossy Meadow.  And – I used a die in the set to cut out a few of the small magnolia buds from the Magnolia Lane DSP – how cool is that?!?

I stamped the Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle die.  Finally – I used the edgelit in the Magnolia Memory Dies to cut two of the strips that you see in the background – these are actually the pieces LEFT OVER when you use the edeglit!  These are cut from a piece of the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes – I had some leftover from a previous card.  #SaveScraps 🙂

I built the collage with Liquid Glue – starting with the craft strips, then the large magnolia.  Next is the two Mossy Meadow die cut leaves and one of the die cut DSP magnolias.  Then I popped the sentiment on with Dimensionals.

I used some Glue Dots and adhered a few loops of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack).  Then I added two Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments and the final die cut DSP flower.

On the side, I added a Petal Pink sticker/strip from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and a few loops of the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.  A few Pearl Basic Jewels finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a second Good Morning Magnolia sentiment in Tuxedo Black and a Pearl to a large card from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into my Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Card, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

On the front of my Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Envelope, I stamped the large Good Morning Magnolia flower, a bud and some leaves in Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored them with my Mossy Meadow and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends…

…and I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere the liner on the inside!  Guys – these beautiful liners come WITH the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes!  Bonus!

Et voila!  The Magnolia Lane is one of the most stunning suites in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  I love that the Magnolia Memory Dies will cut images from the Magnolia Lane DSP!  As well as the more obvious stamped images from Good Morning Magnolia.  I hope you like!

Or twelve! 😉
