Stampin’ Up! Merry Musical Christmas Happiness!

Happy Monday, y’all!  And – since SU! is giving EVERYone FREE SHIPPING TODAY – it really IS a Happy Monday!

You read it right – and they mean free shipping on ANY and EVERY order!  So – click here and head over to my Online Store to get saving!  Oh – and today’s the last day of my TRIPLE Peppermint Rewards Points – so… pretty darned perfect timing, huh?? 🙂

So – if you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live video, thank you so much for spending part of your Sunday with me!  If not, and you’d like to watch – here’s the YouTube replay! Fair Warning – there were technical difficulties with my internet last night and this version is after dealing with that.  There’s some heavy, disgusted signing at the start!  Drive on…it gets better, I promise!! 😉

I sort of indulged myself with this card, y’all!  I went to a favorite standby – the retiring Christmas Happiness stamp set and Merry Music DSP – to make today’s Christmas Card.  Take a look-see:

The layout is courtesy of this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge:

I started with a piece of striped Cherry Cobbler paper from the Be Merry DSP and adhered it to the front of a Basic Black card base with Liquid Glue.

My Merry Music DSP art piece is stamped a few times with some Garden Green pine boughs from the Christmas Happiness stamp set.  I stamped them a couple times full strength and once without re-inking.  Then I added a couple of pine cones – the outline image was stamped in Early Espresso and the fill-in image in Soft Suede.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and then popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To make the sentiment, I inked the words separately in Cherry Cobbler – and stamped them in a straight line (the sentiment image has them stacked) – on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  I snipped a banner in one end and then edged the banner with my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.  I used Liquid Glue and a single Mini Stampin’ Dimensional (under the left end) to adhere it to the card front.

I added a few Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes and a Linen Thread Billie Moan bow and the card front was done!

On the inside, I repeated the Be Merry DSP to cover the inside of the card base.  Then I stamped a second Christmas Happiness sentiment in Cherry Cobbler on a Whisper White panel.  Over that, I stamped a pine bough in stamped-off-once Garden Green and added a Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shape.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into the card base, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Garden Green Christmas Happiness pine bough and an Early Espresso/Soft Suede pine cone on the front…

…and more of the Be Merry DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Christmas Happiness pine boughs and Merry Music DSP – a classically perfectly Christmas card!!  Hope you like – and are making sure this beautiful pair is in your stash before it’s gone forever!

Finn Fan Fix  

On Saturday, we left early in the morning – well, “early” is a bit of an exxageration.  We left at 7am – after debating the wisdom of driving out in The Big Snow Event of 2017.  But we ended up deciding to give it a shot and we headed out to go up to NC to check on our property up there and get a couple of things done.

This is how it looked as we left…

Y’all.  It is NOT supposed to look like that in Atlanta.  Seriously.

We stopped to top off the fuel tank – just in case…

While Wayne took care of that, I took a picture of the Cracker Barrel…

…and the Man relaxed in comfort in the back of the truck.

He had his bed and a blankie.  And his breakfast in a bowl right in front of him.  You can see his ears pulled back – he’s listening to his Dad clanking around with the fuel pump.

We had a great weekend – the snow continued much of the way but the roads were clear.  Finny had a good time – although I think some of the fun of riding was replaced by boredom!

I’ve got some really fun pictures to show you in the next few days!

Stampin’ Up! Plaid Merry Cafe Christmas!

Happy Cyber Monday, y’all!  Can I just say – have you placed your FREE SHIPPING order yet?  If not – might I ask – what the heckerya waitin’ for?!?  I mean – seriously!  Free Shipping on any and every order.  It’s the perfect reason to get all stocked up on necessities and not-so-necessities!

And – in case Free Shipping wasn’t enough…DOUBLE.  PEPPERMINT.  POINTS.

That pretty much oughta do it!

So – if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I thank you for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, and you’d like to watch the YouTube replay – here ’tis!

I used the fun Merry Cafe stamp set which, handily enough, matches the Coffee Cups Framelits in the Annual Catalog (it’s bundled with the Coffee Cafe stamp set – thus saving you 10%).  I added a few other little goodies and came up with…this.  Take a look-see:

This one played along with the sketch and, to some extent, the inspiration photo from the Fusion challenge.

I started with some pretty paper from the Quilted Christmas DSP Stack and matted it on some Real Red card stock with Fast Fuse.  The oval part of the sketch is a piece of Powder Pink card stock, cut with an Ovals Layering Framelits die and then embossed in the Holly TIEF and matted on a scalloped Real Red Oval.

I adhered the matted oval to the card front with Fast Fuse.

I cut a large coffee cup from the plaid Quilted Christmas DSP using the die from the Coffee Cups Framelits.  For the whipped cream, I cut it from Whisper White and then embossed it in the Seaside TIEF.  I outlined the resulting curved lines with my Fine Tip Glue Pen and sprinkled it with Silver Stampin’ Glitter.  I used some Liquid Glue to adhere the cream to the back of my plaid coffee cup, then I adhered it all to the embossed oval with Liquid Glue.

Using the sentiment from the Merry Cafe stamp set – and inking the words separately with Real Red and Garden Green ink, I stamped it on Whisper White and cut it with the die in the Coffee Cups Framelits.  I added some faux stitches with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it to the cup with Liquid Glue.

My embellishments come from several places.  I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to cut a few pine boughs from some green plaid paper from the Quilted Christmas DSP Stack.  Real Red berries and a few Whisper White sprigs rounded it out.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the card front.  Then I tied a bow from 1/4″ Quilted Christmas Ribbon and attached it with a Glue Dot.  To finish the “bouquet” – I used some Fast Fuse to adhere a holly sprig from the Stitched Felt Embellishments.

Being the packrat I am, I’d toted home a Silver/Gold Foil snowflake that I’d made for a previous card with the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits die set.  I adhered it with Liquid Glue and stuck a Clear Faceted Gem over the top.

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Merry Cafe in Real Red and Garden Green and stamped it on a Whisper White panel.  At the bottom, I used the two-step berries image to stamp the stems in Crumb Cake and the berries in Real Red.  Then I added another Clear Faceted Gem.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Merry Cafe berries in Crumb Cake and Real Red on the front…

…and some more of the red Quilted Christmas DSP Stack paper to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Quilted Christmas and Merry Cafe all come together to make a yummy Christmas card, don’t you think?  Hope you like!

Finn loves this time of year!

Well – to be fair, it’s only his second ever “this time of year”, right??  

But he really likes being outside in the sunshine when it’s brisk and cool out.

In fact, he has to be persuaded to come in to eat.  Or do anything else!

Just a dog.  Chillin’ on his golf cart.  

Life is good indeed!

Stampin’ Up! Quilted Merry Patterns

Mornin’, y’all!  It’s Monday again – and this week that means that I have one day left here and then I head to CA for a quick trip – back on Friday!  I spent yesterday catching up on my shows in between getting cards made for the week!  Never even got out of my pj’s! 😉

If you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live video, thanks so much for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, and you’d like to watch, here’s the link to the video on YouTube!

This card is to remind you that the Merry Patterns Christmas stamp set is still available – less than two weeks are left – and you need to get it quick!  You can read on down and find out how to get your very own copy, okay?  I added some Quilted Christmas DSP and came up with…take a look-see:

The layout for this card came from the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

And it also plays along quite nicely with the Inspire.Create.Challenges #003.

 

This card started with a piece of Quilted Christmas DSP, which I embossed in the Quilt Top TIEF and matted on a piece of Lemon Lime Twist.

The next layer is a strip of Whisper White, also embossed in the Quilt Top TIEF, matted on Lemon Lime Twist and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Then I wrapped a length of Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim around the panels, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered a Foil Snowflake – silver side up – to the card front – offsetting it from center.

For my art piece, I cut a Stitched Shapes circle from Whisper White card stock and then stamped the candle outline image from the Merry Patterns set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

I used the two candle-fill-in images and colored the candles with Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist.  Using my light and dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (available to customers on 1 Nov!), I colored the flames.

For the sentiment, I inked just the part of the large sentiment that I wanted in Real Red and added it under the candles.  Then I matted the circle on its Lemon Lime Twist scalloped circle (cut with my Circles Layering Framelits) and popped it over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small bow from the Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim and added it with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from the Merry Patterns – this is just the fill-in portion of the large sentiment – in Real Red.  Then I added a few Lemon Lime Twist pine boughs – also from Merry Patterns.  Using my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker, I filled in all but the berries in the sentiment.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon Lime Twist mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another set of Merry Patterns candles on the front…

…and some more pine boughs and Quilted Christmas DSP on the back and the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I hope that y’all already have this wonderful Merry Patterns stamp set – or are busily making plans to get it before it’s gone!  If you want it – let me know.  We’ll figure out how to make that happen!  Hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Seasonal Lantern on Plaid!

It’s Monday, y’all.  And that’s all I’m going to say about it! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure do appreciate it!  If you weren’t able to join, but would like to watch the tutorial, here’s a link to it on YouTube!

This is one that uses what’s become my favorite new Designer Papers – the beautiful plaids in the Christmas Around the World DSP.  And it all works together with the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and bundled Lantern Builder Framelits.  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge.

I matted my pretty Christmas Around the World plaid on Basic Black for the card front.  Then I cut the lantern shape with the die from the Lantern Builder Framelits and the detailed lantern from Gold Glimmer Paper.

The candle is stamped on a piece of Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and filled in with Real Red.  These are both stamps in Seasonal Lantern, as is the “glow” image that I added in Daffodil Delight.  I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to color the flame.

I adhered a gold Foil Snowflake with Liquid Glue, then wrapped a piece of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front, adhering it in the back with scotch tape.  I added the lantern with more Liquid Glue.

Check out the video to see how to make the matted label with Basic Black and Gold Glimmer Paper using the Pretty Label Punch.  I stamped the sentiment from Seasonal Lantern in Versamark on Whisper White, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated it up.  Then I cut banner ends with my Paper Snips and adhered it over the matted label.

I cut some pine boughs in Garden Green with the Pretty Pines Thinlits and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  The pine cones, from Seasonal Lantern, are stamped in Early Espresso and Soft Suede and cut with their die in the Lantern Builder Framelits.  Once all the embellishments were on, I popped the label and sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I topped it all off with a bow tied from a length of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine and two lengths of Gold Metallic Thread, adhered with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I matted a strip of the Christmas Around the World plaid DSP on Basic Black card stock, then added another length of the Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon around the Whisper White panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat 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 a trio of Seasonal Lantern candles in Real Red, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight on the front…

…and more of the pretty Christmas Around the World DSP on the envelope flap.  Plus some more candles!

Et Voila!  Gotta love this plaid paper – and the versatility of the Seasonal Lantern bundle – Christmas – Fall – Hannukah!  Hope you like!

Don’t miss the fact that the Christmas Around the World DSP is included in the Buy-Three-Get-One-Free DSP sale going on now thru the end of the month!  And you’re going to want to take advantage of my Ordering Special and the World Card Making Day celebration, too!  Lots of opportunities to stock up and save!!

Stampin’ Up! I’m Wild About Christmas Happiness!

Morning’, y’all…I’m not even going to say my normal thing about it being Monday.  You know it’s Monday and I know it’s Monday.  So…yea.  It’s Monday.

If you were able to join me last night on Facebook, I appreciate you taking some time with me on your Sunday!  If not, then here’s a link to the video on YouTube in case you want to take a peek.

This card came about at the request of my mom.  She’s got a friend who’ lived in the mountains for a long time and is having to move to Arizona to be closer to their children.  And she’s not feeling very happy about the move!  So…the request was for a mountainy theme card.

Smack in my wheelhouse!

One of the new stamp sets in the 2017 Holiday catalog is called Christmas Happiness.  

If you know me at all, you know that this set caught my eye right away.  Yes – pine boughs.  Pine Cones.  Add in Christmas lights – and you’ve got me!

But I didn’t need a Christmas card – I needed a you’re-going-away-you’ll-be-missed-and-I-wish-you-the-best card.  So…I pulled in a little help from the Wild About Flowers stamp set.  Add in some plaid paper from the new Merry Little Christmas DSP and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

My design is inspired by the sketch challenge at MFT Card Challenges – I just turned it on end! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Embossed Thank You Video Sneak Peek!

Hey, ya’ll!  Happy Sunday!  Hope your weekend has been good so far!  I got to go to dinner with my new Stampin’ Up! friend and her husband last night – it wasn’t great for the diet – but…everything just tasted so darned good!  And – I had such a nice time!  Getting to meet them has been one of the boons of this trip for me! 🙂

So, tonight I’ll be on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page at 8pm Eastern, with a Live video. We’re going to do a card with some colored Embossing Paste and…well, it’ll be a surprise, won’t it?  Here’s a sneaky-peek!

 

This one played along with the Stamp Ink Paper Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week.  I went right across the middle!

 

I’ll post more pictures and the products and card cuts in tomorrow’s post!  Hope you’ll join me tonight!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Bouquet Anniversary Sneak Peek

Good mornin’!  Hope your weekend is going well!  I’ve been pretty darned lazy so far – so this day I need to hit it a little.  But it was really nice to sort of laze around yesterday – watched some movies.  Took a couple of naps.  Did a little grocery shopping!  🙂

As is becoming my habit – I’m going to tease you a little with this post!  Tonight, I’ll be playing with the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits!  I’ll go live on my Stamps-N-Lingers Facebook page at 8pm Eastern, so I hope you’ll join me.  Here’s a peek at what I’ll be making!

Hmmm – is that a brick wall behind the flowers?  Made with…Embossing Paste?!? Continue reading
