Stampin’ Up! Blossoming Hanging Garden for the Stamp Ink Paper # 143

Good morning!  It’s Tuesday – which means it’s time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  

I’ve got another Twist and Pop-out card for you today – I told you I would! 🙂  Today’s version, though, is a much different look!  I used Wood Textures DSP and the Sale-A-Bration Blossoming Basket bundle (you’ve got 5 more days to get this gorgeous bundle for free with a $100 purchase!) and the lovely Hanging Garden stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Pop-Out Birthday

Mornin’, my peeps!  Here we are, back at work, heh?  Man – the weekend goes so fast, doesn’t it?  Hope yours was good.

If you were able to join me last night for 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 YouTube replay.  Fair warning – we did do the fun-fold in the card I’m sharing with you today.  But we made a completely different card (which, OBTW, you’ll see tomorrow!).  Check it out.

The card that I gave you a sneak peek of on Sunday is a pop-and-twist fun fold card.  It uses the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and some of the too-fun Picture Perfect Party DSP.  It’s a party in paper and card stock!  Take a look-see:

Of course, the funnest part of this card comes when you open it! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! A Good Day for Delightful Daisy Treat Holder

Monday again, y’all!  Whoo-hoo?

No.  

But – I had a good weekend and I hope that y’all did, too!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how I made these Spring-y little treat boxes, here’s the YouTube version!

I admit, I blatantly CASEd the heck out of this from Sam Hammond (aka Pootles) – she did a great video!  You can see her version right here!

For mine, I used the gorgeous Delightful Daisy DSP from our Annual Catalog, and paired it with a sweet little sentiment from the A Good Day stamp set, which is in the Occasions catalog! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Lovely as Trees and Thoughtful Prayers on Black Ice for Stamp Ink Paper #141

Good morning, y’all!  Happy Tuesday!

Being Tuesday, it’s time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge – and this week it’s a sketch challenge!

I used a fun technique that I recently came across called the Black Ice technique.  I did it on Copper Foil, using the Lovely as a Tree pine image and a sentiment from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.  Take a look-see:

Cool, huh?  Looks like an icy-rain! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Little Something Baby Bear

Happy Monday, y’all.  Stated with no small amount of sarcasm.  Its cold – it’s muddy – and it’s a work day.  A trifecta of awesomeness!  Bleh!

If you were able to join me last night for our Facebook Live video, thanks so much and I hope you enjoyed it!  If not and would like to see how to make a double-loop bow, some Stamparatus-ing, a little masking and sponging and the Black Ice technique….then here’s the sort-of-instant-but-totally-not replay on YouTube!

The card we worked on last night used the Sweet Little Something stamp set from the Occasions catalog, plus a sentiment from the Baby Bear set (Annual).  Take a look-see: Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Lots to Love About Southern Serenade

Well, shoot-fire, y’all.  It’s freakin’ Monday again!  Sheesh – why does it come so fast and then take so long to get back to the weekend?  Anyone have a clue? I think it’s even harder to face the week when half (or more!) of the weekend was rainy and pretty much nasty, don’t you?  And yes – that’s what we had.  All the day long on Sunday. Finn – not a fan.  He loves the mud but his mom doesn’t so….he got to spend way less time outside than normal. 🙁

That kind of weather is, however, great for making cards!  So…I did!  And we did a video last night with one of those projects.  If you were able to join me – thanks so much for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see the project I made with the Lots to Love Box Framelits and the Southern Serenade stamp set, here’s a link to it on YouTube!

I used some of the pretty Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP to make the box with the Lots to Love Box Framelits – I’ve found that the heavier weight of the foil specialty papers works the best for these little boxes.

As you can see in the video – you’ll cut two of the Lots to Love Framelits box die cuts and put them together with Fast Fuse – or Tear & Tape Adhesive like I used! Continue reading

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-Fan-Fix

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!
