Stampin’ Up! Way to Goat Birthday with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge from Claire this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I used the new and totes adorbs Way To Goat stamp set with new 2020-2022 In Color DSP and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies for this fun and easy card.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

And I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from this week – I went down across the diagonal left-to-right!

From the moment I saw the Way To Goat stamp set in the new catalog, I’ve wanted it.  Not for the G.O.A.T. piece – although that’s pretty cute and au currant.  No – it was because as soon as I saw the goats I heard Julie Andrews singing Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo!!

LONELY GOATHERD ... SINGER, JULIE ANDREWS ... FILM, SOUND OF MUSIC ...

You see it, right? 😉

I started with some polka-dot Misty Moonlight paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and used Stampin’ Seal to mat it on Bumble Bee for the card front.  I wrapped some sparkly Misty Moonlight/Silver twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack three times around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the goat-with-flower image from Way To Goat in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.

I colored her with my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Combo.  Her hair is…of course!…colored with my Light Misty Moonlight blends and her horns with the Ivory Blend.

I cut a same-size Stitched So Sweetly rectangle from Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color DSP and then adhered the goat-girl to that, slightly offset, with Liquid Glue.

I used Glue Dots to adhere a figure-eight looped bow of Flowers For Every Season sparkly twine.

On another piece of Whisper White, in Misty Moonlight, I stamped a Way To Goat sentiment.  I cut it – and a Bumble Bee DSP mat – from a smaller Stitched So Sweetly Rectangle die and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals – some double-stacked to accommodate the bow – to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Using my Light Magenta Madness Blend – I colored one of the small Paper Flowers from the Boho Indigo Product Medley, and adhered it over the stamped flower with a Glue Dot.  If you don’t have the medley – get it at once!  Seriously.  Or…you could just color the flower with the bullet-tip end of your Stampin’ Blend.

I adhered a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the sentiment and the card was done!

On the inside, I added a second Way To Goat sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I used my Stamparatus to stamp what is – obviously! – the Mama goat in Tuxedo Black. I colored her the same as flower-girl on the front!

I use Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got Mama on the front – and a Misty Moonlight sentiment.  Cuz I love it…

…and more of the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.  And mama and another sentiment.  I had to put her on here with her side-eye….. just had to…

Et Voila!  I think Way To Goat may be one of the cutest stamp sets ever!  I just love it – and I hope you love it, too!

So…today is the 28th.  There are only 30 days in June.  Which means – you’ve got like….three days (I am a math WHIZ!!) to take advantage of the amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion!  I would so love to have you join us!!  Give me a holler with questions or….to get signed up now! 😎

Finn Fan Fix


One of the first things I taught Finn – and one I insist on with him – is to sit and wait when we’re getting into a vehicle – until I tell him to Load.  And – more importantly, when we’re getting OUT somewhere, he knows to sit and wait – even as the van/car/truck door is opening – until I tell him Out.

This is not only the polite way to behave – nothing annoys me more than a dog who is bouncing and carrying on to get in or out of a vehicle.  And nothing on earth is more dangerous – to THEM – than leaping from the car as soon as a door opens.

Which is all a lead up to this.

Looks pretty straightforward – but….what HE is seeing is…

Dog-crack.  A place he wants to be worse than almost anything.

So this….

Is Finny being a Very.  Good.  Boy.

And then…Load!

Soooo happy to be going….ANYWHERE!!

And the nicer thing is – he just lays down in the back and rides.

He really is the best dog on the planet. 🙂

Also?  Possibly the cutest.

Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Birthday Locking Gate Card with Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope your week went well – our did.  And it went fast.  Like…Warp Factor Four, Mr. Sulu-fast.  What the heck??!  I mean – seriously, just last week I was 28 – and then…I was 29 in the blink of an eye.  At this rate I’ll be 60 before this time next year!

See…THAT’S funny cuz I actually WILL be 60 this time next year – with or without Warp-Speed-Time-Passing! 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

This is a gate card – without a bellyband.  Instead, it’s got a unique “locking mechanism” that holds the card closed.

As you can see – I did two versions.  The one on the right uses pieces that were leftover from putting my June Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin together – cool, huh?

That one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I first saw this fun-fold when I got a birthday card from my friend Elisha Smith – then I took a peek at Amanda Chatsworth’s video.  And then – I modified it all a little bit to work as an A2 sized card and fit a Medium Envelope.

I started by creating a regular gate card – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded at 2 1/8″ from each short end.  I used Basic Black for the lemons card and Misty Moonlight for the Boho Indigo card.

I adhered Artistry Blooms DSP or Boho Indigo DSP to their mats – Daffodil Delight or Very Vanilla – with Liquid Glue and then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the “gates”.

The locking mechanism – which also functions as the card front – is created with four pieces of the mat-colored card stock – all the same size (2 5/8″ x 4 3/8″).  On two of the panels – I scored and folded them at 1 5/16″ on the short side.

I used Liquid Glue to “sandwich” the two folded panels between the other two panel to create an “X”.  Best way is to check the video – fast forward to about the 13 minute mark! 🙂

Once the “mechanism” was complete – it was just a matter of decorating!

The lemon card uses a black/dotted sticker and some die cuts from the Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit  I tied a little bow from the black/white twine in the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  The sentiment on that one is from the Fancy Phrases set – stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White.  It’s adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some of the adhesive-backed sequins from the kit as well!

On the Boho Indigo card, I adhered another piece of the Boho Indigo DSP to the mat.  Then I stamped the sentiment – also from the medley – on one of the pretty vanilla/gold die cut tags (from the medley – there is a LOT in this medley, y’all!).  I looped a piece of Night of Navy 1/2″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon thru the top and tied it with a length of gold twine from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack.

I used some of the pretty leaves die cuts from the medley, adhering them to the card front with Liquid Glue – then popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some foil flowers AND some of the sweet little Paper Flowers with Liquid Glue.  Finally – I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots cuz it seemed like the right thing to do! 🙂

On the inside – I added a sentiment from Fancy Phrases in Rich Razzleberry to a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another leaf and a lemon with Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.  Then I adhered it into the Lemon card.

For the inside of the Boho Indigo card, I just stamped a Very Vanilla panel with the leaves image from the medley stamp set in Garden Green – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  I matted it on Very Vanilla.

For the Whisper White Medium Envelope for my Lemon card got a sweet little flower from Fancy Phrases in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Watercolor Pencils.  I added Artistry Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.

On the front of the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added more leaves from Boho Indigo in Garden Green – and then added the DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a pretty easy fold – the mechanism is the only “hard” part – and it’s not very hard, either, once you see how it’s done!  If you’ve got the June Box of Sunshine kit – I hope this will give you some ideas about more fun projects to make with those extra pieces.  And – you NEED to get the Boho Indigo Product Medley if you don’t have it already.  It is simply amazing!!

I hope you like! 😉

There’s less than a week left in the month of June, y’all – which means less than a week to take advantage of the Pick a Free Bundle Joining Special and the Catalog Kickoff Ordering Celebration to get those extra Stampin’ Rewards!  Don’t miss out!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


The other day, I couldn’t find Finn.

Which was weird, cuz I knew he’d come in with me.

I’d taken his collar off.

I remembered it clearly.

But…he was disappeared.

I looked all over – even started to wonder about alien abductions.  Wormholes opening in the living room.

I gave Katy the side-eye…what did you do to your brother?

And then – I found him.

To be clear – I walked by him twice looking for him (it’s actually dark in there – this is a flash shot).  That’s a tiny little hallway to our third bedroom.  From the kitchen looking towards the back of the house – he was completely invisible.

He truly couldn’t have shoe-horned himself any deeper into that tiny little cranny!

Stampin’ Up! Pattern Play-ful Alphabet with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s Joanne’s Clean-And-Simple challenge this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

This week, I SAW and acknowledged the “clean-and-simple” part of the challenge – and decided this was a great chance to use a new bundle – the Pattern Play stamp set with the awesome Playful Alphabet dies.  I added a little In Good Taste DSP to the mix and…well…take a look-see:

Okay – if this isn’t clean-and-simple, then…I guess I need some learnin’!! 😉

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

 

My layout was inspired by this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

…and the colors worked well with the Sunday Stamps challenge, too!

I started by cutting my letters for the word “thanks”, using the new Playful Alphabet dies.  Y’all – you know how sometimes letter dies are TOOO big?  And sometimes they’re TOOO small and fussy!??  Well – THESE are JUUUUSSST right!  In fact – they’re perfect!

I cut them twice each – once from some wood-design paper in the In Good Taste DSP pack and again in Real Red cardstock.   NOTE: in the video card, I first adhered the Real Red card stock to a piece of the new Foam Adhesive Sheets and then went from there. Y’all – they are COOL!!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the wood letters to the Real Red ones, offsetting them just a smidge to create a shadow.

Then I laid them out on my Whisper White panel to get the location correct.

I inked the solid hearts image from the Pattern Play set in Real Red and stamped it above my dry-fit sentiment.

Then I embossed the panel in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  You want to emboss AFTER you stamp.

Or…you can emboss and THEN stamp – but you’ll want to use your Stamparatus so that you can stamp it a couple of times…

Trust me on this, okay? 😉

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat.

Then, using Liquid Glue – I adhered the letters.  Note: the Foam Adhesive Sheets have their own adhesive, so…no Glue needed!

Finally, I wrapped some twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack around the panel a couple of times – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I wrapped a short length around the two wraps and tied a little bow – and the card front was done!

Clean. And. Simple.

Told ya. 😉

On the inside, I inked the diagonal hashmark image in Balmy Blue and added it across the bottom of a Whisper White panel (it’s photoploymer – so easy to line up just right!).  Then I added some Real Red hearts.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Balmy Blue hash marks and Real Red hearts across the front…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I LOVE this new Playful Alphabet stamp set!  The dies are perfectly sized to do ANYthing you want – and the set includes numbers and punctuation, too!   Use it alone – or combine it with the sentiments and texture/design images in the bundled Pattern Play stamp set.

I hope you like!

What do you think?  Is THIS the bundle you’ll pick when you join my team during the amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion??  Inquiring minds want to know! 🤔

The other day – there came a heckuva a ruckus on the roof.

I actually thought there was a racoon up there.

Or…a rhinocerous.

Finn knew EXACTLY what…and WHERE!…the problem was.

See it?

HE does. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Whale of a Time Fun Fold with Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Friday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned!  Not really sure what’s on our agenda, to be honest.  Probably something uber-exciting.  Like…I think the Costco Business Center has Wayne’s bottled water on sale…

Yes.  I know.  You’re a little jealous of our Lives-of-the-Rich-and-Famous lifestyle. 😉

I saw a sweet “exploding” box-card that Brigitte Keiling had created with the adorable Zany Zebras stamp set and decided I needed to make one – or two! – of my own and share the how-to with y’all.  I did mine with the wonderful Whale Done bundle and gorgeous Whale of a Time DSP.  Take a look-see:

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – and you got to see exactly how to build these fun “box cards”.  If not – take a gander at it here on YouTube.  They’re really pretty easy – but…kinda hard see how to do it in still photos – moving pictures are worth a gazillion words! 😉

The box is super easy to make – I started with a 6″ x 12″ piece of card stock that I scored at 2″ and 4″ on the short side and at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″ and 10″ on the long side.

I folded and lightly burnished the score lines, then I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut at the dotted lines as shown above.

I cut 16 pieces of the Whale of a Time DSP into 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ squares and adhered them to the outside of the box with Liquid Glue.

On the second box – the one in the video – I got a little jiggy with it – and changed up the DSP for the “top” of the folded box – so the recipient see a little “sea-scene” when they lift the lid! 🙂

It made me happy!

On the inside, I used some Brights (Pacific Point) or 2020-2022 In Color (Just Jade) 6″ x 6″ DSP for the squares.

On both boxes – I cut two pieces of Whisper White at 1 7/8″ x 5 5/8″.  Then I stamped the Whale Done sentiments in Pacific Point for both boxes.

I added a variety of sea images from Whale Done – in Calypso Coral, Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Balmy Blue, Shaded Spruce and Blackberry Bliss.

I cut the Whisper White panels down to 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ and adhered them in order with Liquid Glue.

For the “extra” sentiments, I turned to my Many Mates set and stamped a few sentiments on Whisper White in Pretty Peacock, Calypso Coral and Granny Apple Green.  I fussy cut the words and edged them in Pacific Point or Granny Apple Green – then adhered them to the panels with Liquid Glue.

Some Whale of a Time sequins, adhered here and there with dabs of Liquid Glue was all that remained for the card.

For the lid – I cut a 3 5/8″ x 5 5/8″ piece of card stock – in Pacific Point for the sample box and Granny Apple Green for the video box.  I scored and folded them at 3/4″ from each end on the short and long sides.

Then I snipped “tabs” in the end and adhered the lid together with Stampin’ Seal +.

I adhered strips of Whale of a Time DSP around the edge of the lid.  For the top, I stamped a second sentiment from Whale Done in Pretty Peacock on a “scene” piece of Whale of a Time.  Then I adhered the panel to a Granny Apple Green or Pretty Peacock mat and popped it onto the top of the box lid with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the whale in Night of Navy or Pretty Peacock, punched him with the bundled Whale Punch and popped him on with Dimensionals.

A few more Whale of a Time sequins on the lid finished it off!

Et Voila!  This is a “wow” fun-fold for sure!  And the bx is for sure sturdy enough that you could stick a little “green” inside or some candy.  Or…both!

I love the Whale of a Time Suite – way more than I figured I would.  The images and sentiments are cute (and SO fun to just keep stamping and stamping to make my own underwater scenery!) and the paper in Whale of a Time is wonderfully colorful and gorgeous!

I hope you like – and will try one of these fun box-cards for yourself!

And – maybe the Whale Done Bundle will be the one YOU choose when you sign up and join my Team during our amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Bouquet Thank You with a Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Friday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned!

I’m hoping to have some friends come this afternoon to do a little card making.  We’ll wear our masks and stay as socially distanced as possible. But – she’s retiring from the airline soon and is thinking maybe card-ing would be fun now that she’ll have some time.  And – she’s intrigued (rightly enough!) by the current joining special.  She likes the sound of “FREE” as much as the next person – and a bundle of free?  Yes, please! 🙂

Now – one of the awesomer new bundles in the catalog and…one she – or you! – could pick for free – is the Prized Peony Bundle.  The Prized Peony stamp set is gorgeous, for sure.  But – the real prize (see what I did there?) is the bundled Peony Dies.  Which lets you cut out all the gorgeous flower images in the stamp set AND lets you build stunning 3D peonies. Like I created today.  Take a look-see:

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – and you got to see exactly how to build these peonies.  If not – take a gander at it here on YouTube.  Moving pictures are worth a gazillion words! 😉

The layout for this one was loosely inspired by this week’s challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a piece of In Good Taste DSP wood-grain paper that I matted on Just Jade for the card front using new Stampin’ Seal.

I created some leaves using the dies in the Peony Dies – each leaf uses two different dies.  I created them from Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and from Mint Macaron card stock.  The larger solid leaves in Mint Macaron, I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I adhered the leaf parts together with Liquid Glue.

I cut three flowers – they each take 4 parts….

One I cut from Whisper White card stock, one from Mango Melody Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP and one from So Saffron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Using an almost-dry Sponge Dauber, I lightly brushed the edges of all the flower pieces.

I ran the four Whisper White petals thru the cutting and embossing machine in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Then I used my Bone Folder to curl all the petals into a most-realistic looking shape. 😉

Finally – I assembled all the flowers.  Just remember – the smallest petal into the next largest into the next largest and finally into the biggest petal.  Align the “notch” at the bottom and adhere with Liquid Glue.

Confused?  Truly – it’s easy.  Watch the video and I’ll prove it to you! 🙂

I stamped the Prized Peony sentiment in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White, then used the smallest rectangle die cut in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut the sentiment.  That die is the right width – but is too short.  So…I made the cut longer by running thru the machine twice.  Check the video – this part starts at about 34:45 into the video.  LOTS easier to show than to write! 🙂

I laid out my collage and took a picture – first of the whole thing and then with the top flower off…

Then I started adhering all the pieces and parts with Liquid Glue and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a couple of Glue Dots to adhere a Linen Thread “Figure 8” before adding the final Mango Melody flower.

A few of the new Elegant Faceted Gems – the pink ones – finished off the card front!

On the inside, I inked the Peony image (the middle sized one) from Prized Peony in Magenta Madness.  Then I stamped it off twice before stamping a Whisper White panel.  I repeated that three more times.  Then I colored them with my Light So Saffron and Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.  I also added a second sentiment in Early Espresso.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Just Jade mat and into my Early Espresso card base, added the card front with Liquid Glue – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Prized Peony on the front…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila – does this Peony Die set not make the more stunningly gorgeous flowers??  I can’t believe how real you can make them look – just by stacking four die cuts together!  And the beautiful images and sentiments in the bundled Prized Peony round this out to be the perfect bundle!

I hope you like – and have this one coming soon!  Or…that it’s on the short list for your free pick when you join my team! 😉

If you’d like to re-create this card, all the products needed and card cuts are down below! 🙂

Yesterday, Wayne got back from being in NC for a few days working on our rental property.

Which meant it was – finally!! – time to turn these…

…into this…

No – NOT the yellow squash – it’s destined for different things!

Served up with some corn bread?  Oh yes – that’s some good eating!

Well – the Finn-meister was NOT convinced that what I was working on was VEGETABLES!!!

“I LOVE beans, Mom. ESPECIALLY French Algarve beans that I grew myself!”

He doesn’t.  I promise.

Now – the ham in the beans??  Likely a far different story! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Massive Thanks to a Wild Rose With Video Tutorial for The Paper Players!

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Theme challenge from the talented Anne Marie this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

When I first saw the new Massive Thanks stamp set – I was pretty smitten with all the fun ways to express our thanks!  And the new Rainbow Glimmer Paper – just WORKS in the Wild Rose dies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin' Up! Massive Thanks to a Wild Rose - Stamps-N-Lingers 1

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

And I borrowed the layout from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

So – Rainbows and such aren’t really in my wheelhouse and I don’t have a ton of sets (or…any??) that fit that bill.  So….I was tickled silly when the new RAINBOW Glimmer Paper got here in time for me to make my card for the challenge.

I mean – it’s IN THE NAME – so…it totally counts! 😉

I started with a piece of Basic Black cardstock for the card front and used one of the Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut out a piece.  I used a larger die to cut a Mango Melody piece. Then I adhered the card front to a Mango Melody mat with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the Mango Melody die cut and then the Basic Black die cut with more Liquid Glue.

I stuck a piece of Whisper White card stock to a new Adhesive Sheet and then cut three flowers and three leaves from it using dies from the Wild Rose Die set.

Next, I pulled out some of the new and stunning!! – Rainbow Glimmer paper.  Y’all – this is so pretty, you can’t even believe it.  And – like all the “new” Glimmer Papers – the glitter STAYS ON THE PAPER!!

I used the Press-and-Seal technique (I watched Kylie Bertucci’s fun video – a bunch of times, actually! – to figure it out!) and cut three flowers from various color-spots in the Glimmer Paper.

Using Mini Black Stampin’ Dimensionals – I adhered the cut-out pieces to pieces of Basic Black cardstock.  Then I peeled the adhesive off the back of the Whisper White flowers – and added them over the top.

I used “regular” paper piecing to do the same for the leaves from Wild Rose.

Once all the pieces were adhered to Basic Black – I fussy cut them.

Using a combination of Liquid Glue and Black Stampin’ Dimensionals – I adhered the white flowers and a couple of the Rainbow Glimmer die cut leaves – to the card front.

I stamped a cute sentiment from the new Massive Thanks set in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and cut it with a smaller Stitched Nested Labels die.  This is adhered with stacked Black Stampin’ Dimensionals – and completed the card front!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Massive Thanks in Bermuda Bay on a piece of Whisper White.   Using Liquid Glue, I adhered some of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper die cut flowers and leaves, trimming the excess with my Paper Snips.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some flowers from To A Wild Rose on the front. I inked the image with Mango Melody, then lightly sponged here and there with Magenta Madness.  I also stamped a Granny Apple Green leaf image…

…and did the same on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Okay – the beautiful Wild Rose dies are perfect for paper piecing – and…the new Rainbow Glimmer Paper is ALSO perfect for paper piecing!  I can’t get over how pretty it is!  And the new Massive Thanks stamp set – what a fun sentiment set, y’all!  Check out all the possibilites!

I love it!  And I know you will, too – so…I hope it’s on your shopping list!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Blossoms in Bloom Birthday With Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday.  It’s been quite a week, has it not?  I surely don’t know where we’re headed from here – it all feels broken.  Maybe we can all help – be kind.  To EVERYone.  Let’s see if that works.  It surely can’t hurt!

And – let’s maybe spread some beauty and love – with our cards, shall we?  We’ve seen the smiles that our paper creations can bring – the comfort in hard times.  The moment of lightness in dark days.  They seem like little things – paper, ink, some ribbon…Dimensionals!  But – sometimes they are just THE thing.

Well – that was a lot deeper than I planned.  Sorry!

But I’m totally right.

Admit it.  😉

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

We all send cards for birthdays – and today’s would be a great one!  It uses the new and WUNNERMUS Blossoms in Bloom bundle with its spectacular floral images and the stunning die cuts.  Take a look-see:

This one is going in the pot for the floral theme challenge at the Global Design Project.

And I think it works as a layered card for The Card Concept, too!

The florals for this one are reminscent of a card I saw created by Anna Helman over at Stampin Scrapping and More! 🙂

I started off by cutting the large floral die cut from the Many Layered Blossoms from a piece of Brass Foil.  Before I cut it – I stuck the Brass Foil onto a piece of Adhesive Sheet.

Next, I placed a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock into my Stamparatus and used it to stamp the large floral from Blossoms in Bloom.  I placed my die cut onto the card front and used it to correctly place all the stamps.

The large blue flowers were first.  I inked them with Seaside Spray ink, spritzed them with water and then stamped them.  I dried the image off and then used a Sponge Dauber to add some Misty Moonlight in the middle of the flowers.

I repeated the stamp placement using the die cut for the small flowers – stamped in Highland Heather – and the leaves – stamped in Old Olive daubed with Mossy Meadow.

I ran the panel thru my die cutting and embossing machine in the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, then I sponged it with Crumb Cake using a wedge of Stampin’ Sponge.  Finally, I matted the panel on Mossy Meadow.

I pulled the backing off the die cut and adhered it to the card front.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Blossoms in Bloom sentiment in Mossy Meadow and cut it with an Ornate Frames die.  Then I embossed it in the Tasteful Textile folder and sponged it with Crumb Cake.

I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I used a Glue Dot on top of the bow – and some double-stack Stampin’ Dimensionals – and adhered the sentiment.  A few Pearl Basic Jewels and some Glue-Dot-adhered Antiqued Corners finished the card front!

On the inside, I borrowed an idea from Kylie Bertucci and adhered part of a Brass Foil Many Layered Blossoms die cut and a small flower to a Very Vanilla panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got some Blossoms in Bloom flowers in Seaside Spray and stamped-off-once Highland Heather, plus some stamped-off-once Old Olive/Mossy Meadow leaves and stamped-off-once So Saffron flower middles on the front….

…and a couple on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How.  Spectacular.  Is.  This.  Bundle?!?  Blossoms in Bloom – with it’s Many Layered Blossoms Die set bundled with it – will let you make blooms for DAYS!  Weeks, even! And I adore them all vintagized with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and some Antiqued Corners!  I hope you like!

And – you could pick THIS BUNDLE as your FREE BUNDLE when you join Stampin’ Up! during the month of June!! 😉

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

You may notice – in these hot summer weeks – that MOST of the pictures I share of the fur-kid are of him…sleeping.

In the air conditioning.

Cuz he’s furry AND smart! 🙂

He’s not too interested in spending extra time in the hot.  He’s usually to be found on a cool smooth floor – preferably right in front of an AC vent!

Except…this time.

He’s on carpet.  No vent around.

And – when you see the spot from the other direction…

Tucked in a corner, behind the chair – with his chin on the step.

Not really sure why that seemed like a good idea to him – but…he sure does look comfy!

Stampin’ Up! Many Layered Blossoms with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a TicTacToe challenge (one of my favorites!) from our own talented JayDee this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I turned to the beautiful Many Layered Blossoms bundle – stamp set AND dies – for this one.  And set the blooms atop a Christmas Layers bough and an Ornate Floral 3D embossed panel!  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players TicTacToe challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

I went across the top – down the right column – and across the diagonal left to right.  I’m pretty sure that’s YAHTZEE! 😉

And the layout was (sort of loosely!) inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week!

I started by cutting the bough from the Christmas Layers die set from a piece of Just Jade card stock, which would form the basis for the flower spray on the card front.

Using the small flower dies in the Many Layered Blossoms die set, I cut three small and two large flowers from Silver Foil.  Then I adhered them to a piece of the Magenta Madness paper in the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I roughly fussy cut the flowers.

I cut the outline flowers from Misty Moonlight and used Liquid Glue to adhere them (only using glue in the middles of the flowers) to the flowers I’d just created.

I laid out the bough and the flowers on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Once I knew where it would all “land”, I stamped the Blossoms in Bloom sentiment in Misty Moonlight.  Then I embossed the panel in the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the panel to a Magenta Madness mat and then adhered the Just Jade bough across the panel with Liquid Glue.

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals – I added the five flowers.  Under the fourth flower – I used a Glue Dot to adhere a simple bow tied from a length of Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker’s Twine from the new Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

I added a Bumble Bee enamel dot from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the center of each flower and the card front was done.

On the inside, I stamped the two small flowers from Blossoms in Bloom in Misty Moonlight on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped little flower centers in Melon Mambo (I don’t have Magenta Madness Ink yet – but it’s a good way to show the difference in the two colors!).  I added a Just Jade enamel dot to each flower.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Magenta Madness mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Misty Moonlight and Melon Mambo flowers on the front…

…and more of the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  No way around it, is there?  This bundle – whether you use the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set with the Many Layered Blooms Dies together or just one of the other – is a stunner!!  The stamp set – in addition to the beautiful blossoms – covers a lot of ground in the sentiment department!!

I’m also a huge fan of the new designs in the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP, aren’t you?  When the new catalog comes out next week (whoo-hoo!!), each color collection will have a new pack of DSP with these designs!

Yep – that’s WOODGRAIN!! 🙂

I hope you like – and are adding all these goodies to your gotta-have-it list!

And I can help you get this bundle – after 3 June you might pick this for your FREE BUNDLE when you join the Stampin’ Up! team during our Kickoff Celebration (see the deets down below), or you might consider my Online Host Club! or you could get it in my All About the Flowers Special Bundle!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


The other day, Finn had gone outside for…you know.

Business. 😉

He started barking (not at all unusual) and I looked out the kitchen window to see what it was….the last time he did that we had a visitor.

I couldn’t see anything but he was definitely letting me know SOMEthing was up…

He’d barkbarkbark and then…look to see what, if any, effect he was having…

Finally, I guess he decided it just wasn’t worth the effort and he laid down to rest…

Turns out…which I discovered when I went to feed…I’d left the back pasture gate open that morning.

The girls had been taking a turn thru the barn – checking the sawdust barrels, perusing the hay room, and finally finding the clover patch behind the barn.

So…there WAS something to bark at.

THIS time!

Ever heard of the Aussie who cried wolf?!?

Stampin’ Up! A Grand Kid Jar of Flowers Sneak Peek Fun Fold – with a Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday!!  I hope you’ve had an awesome week.  Are you planning to watch the second attempt to launch Space X to the ISS on Saturday – at 1522 Eastern??  I am – and am hoping the weather God’s are more cooperative than they were on Wednesday.  We need to get ourselves back into space!  Also?  The Space X suits and cockpit are super cool and future-istic looking!  Should be exciting!!

If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!

I used two new-in-the-2020-2021-Annual-Catalog stamp sets for this fun-fold…the A Grand Kid and the Jar of Flowers sets.  Along with some Flowers for Every Season DSP, I ended up with this side-flap tri-fold card.  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of the card hails from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge…

And the flowers and colors work perfectly with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration challenge!

This fun-fold came to my attention on this week’s SplitCoastStampers Wednesday Tutorial, so I thought I’d give it a go!

I started with a full 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Just Jade card stock and scored it with my Paper Trimmer.  Basically – I scored at the half-way mark on both the short and the long sides.  Then I cut out one quadrant of the card stock.

I cut the additional 1/2″ off the third quadrant – and the fun-fold was ready to go!  Easy peasy!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere a striped piece of the new Flowers For Every Season DSP to a Purple Posy mat.

Using Glue Dots to adhere the trim in the back, I wrapped some new gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack three times.

I stamped the pretty floral image from the Jar of Flowers set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut it with the largest oval Stitched Shapes Die.  Then I colored it with my Stampin’ Blends in:  Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo Combo Packs, Dark Balmy Blue, Dark Purple Posy and Dark Mint Macaron.  Then I popped the oval onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals

I stamped a sentiment from A Grand Kid in Poppy Parade on Whsiper White and cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle die in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set, then adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I tied a double-length of the gold Forever Greenery trim in a simple bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Finally, I added some Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the card front was done.

On the inside flap, I matted another Flowers For Every Season paper on a Purple Posy mat and then onto the flap with Liquid Glue.  A second sentiment from A Grand Kid, in Poppy Parade on Whisper White – cut with the largest label in Stitched So Sweetly – was all the flap needed!

For the inner liner, I stamped Happy Birthday – from A Grand Kid – in Poppy Parade on Whisper White.  I added a Purple Posy-matted piece of the Flowers for Every Season DSP with Liquid Glue.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Purple Posy mat and into the card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another fun sentiment from A Grand Kid in Poppy Parade on the front.  I used my Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers to color the letters…

…and more of the Flowers for Every Season DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  There’s so much to love about the florals from the Jar of Flowers set – and that’s even WITHOUT using the bundled Jar Punch!  It just makes a project sing….SPRING (or SUMMER!!).  And the A Grand Kid set – a sentiment stamp set – is perfect for Grandparents, but… many of the sentiments are great for non-grands!

And if you want some paper that spans the seasons – look no further than the aptly-named Flowers for Every Season DSP! Poinsettias and pines, sunflowers, daisies, roses….it’s all here!

I hope you like…no…LOVE!  And are making plans to add all of this to your stash at the earliest opportunity!

You can get the whole Jar of Flowers bundle – plus several other great flower-centric products – in my All About the Flowers Special Bundle #3!  Check it out right here!

Finn Fan Fix


There are many reasons that Finn has a love-hate relationship with summer.

He sort of loves the reaction from the mom and dad when he flies around the corner of the house sopping wet when he’s taken a dip in the pond.

And he LOVES being toweled off as a result of said dip.

But.

There’s a dark side to summer.

That moment when you realize that the garage door is going up and your dad is going for a drive.

Without you. 🙁

Cuz – the mom is a 3S – that’s a Super Strict Stickler – about hot cars and dogs.  And her window of “okay for Finn to go” is pretty narrow.

Just in case that photo didn’t tear at your heart….

Resist this.  I dare you.

Ahhh – the betrayal of summer….

Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge from our lovely LeAnne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I pulled out the new Many Mates stamp set, with it’s bundled Many Medallions Die set (coming on 3 June!), plus a little of the new Forever Greenery DSP for this one!  And – some new Brass Foil became the focal point.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!  🙂

I started with a piece of Just Jade card stock – one of the wunnermus new 2020-2022 In Colors! – and embossed it in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it to be the same size as the front of my Just Jade card base and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Next up is a piece of Forever Greenery DSP, double matted on Pretty Peacock and Melon Mambo – and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the big, bold die in the Many Medallions Die Set, I cut a Brass Foil piece.  Then I used my Paper Snips to trim the panel down to fit and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Many Mates sentiment in Melon Mambo on a strip of Whisper White, then used the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (new in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog) to cut each end.

I tied a simple bow from a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I popped the sentiment over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A couple of Just Jade dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots pack finished off the card front!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Many Mates in Melon Mambo to a Whisper White panel.  I added a Pretty Peacok-matted strip of Forever Greenery DSP across the bottom – and some of the trimmed Brass Foil die cut, as well.  A single Just Jade Enamel dot finished it off.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pretty Peacock and a Melon Mambo mat and then into the Just Jade card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a few words from Many Mates in Melon Mambo on the front…

…and more of the Forever Greenery DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Many Mates set is absolutely filled with fun and useful sentiments – and the bundled Many Medallions offers some great textural accents for your projects!

I hope you like – and are adding this one to your gotta-have-it list!

And I can help you get this stamp set – either now as a new demonstrator (yes, you can select pre-order goodies for your Starter Kit!!) or after 3 June (consider an Online Host Club!!) or my Sentiments Rule Special Bundle!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Now – before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Finn Fan Fix


Wayne put a stick on the dog the other day.

Wait – that might have been me.

I put a stick on the dog the other day.

 

I think I said something like – hey Finny, wanna get this stick?

And he indicated he did not by just ignoring me completely.

So – I put the stick on him.

Figured he’d shake it off real quick.

I figured wrong.

I dunno – maybe he wants to be one of those wagon-pulling dogs?

Or…could just be that…he’s a smidge goofy!

But – makes for cute pictures, huh??
