Stampin’ Up! Give Thanks Today for All Things and a Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends!  I hope this post finds you well, and surrounded by your family and friends.  And that your turkey thawed! 😉  I recall one quite memorable Thanksgiving many many years ago, when the turkey did not thaw, no matter what heroic efforts my parents attempted.  These days, the options for dinner on Thanksgiving are many, but back in the dark ages when this took place….not so much.  Denny’s was the only option.  And they were out of turkey!  Perhaps that’s the year I developed a taste for not-turkey on Thanksgiving – and on Christmas, too, for that matter.  Whatever your choice for dinner – I hope that preparations are well under way!


The Happy Stamper Ladies-Who-Hop have gathered their projects to share with you this Thanksgiving Thursday.  I know they’ve all worked hard to bring wonderful cards to you, so be sure to cruise thru all of their blogs, okay?

Here’s our design inspiration – this week was a sketch challenge!


My share is a conglomeration of the old and the new.  I used the wonderful For All Things, Vintage Leaves, Lighthearted Leaves and a soon-to-be-released 2016 Occasions Catalog set called Apple of My Eye (we ALL got one of these at OnStage Live – it was quite cool!!).  Take a look-see:

sigh….my lighting solutions are just not working all that well, and I’m so sorry.  I really thought the light I ordered would do the trick, but…. 🙁 Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves and One Big Meaning for Super Simple Saturday!

Hello from Tampa!  An uneventful drive down – I love my van! – was followed by a tiny fox-pass (that’s southern for faux pas) in the room assignment (room wasn’t ready but they gave me a key anyway!), I’m settled in my room, waiting for Amy Koenders to arrive.  We went out to meet Jari Francis to check out a Taco spot that was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  I try to check those spots out when I’m in a town – I figure if Guy Fieri ate there and liked it enough to put on the show – then it’s for sure good enough for me.  I’ve had a bunch of truly outstanding meals following his “guidance”!  And – as advertised….really good Fried Grouper Taco!! yummmmm

I’m fixin’ to head out the door, wearing my new Brighton badge lanyard (from my oh-so-wonderful friend and upline Amy Koenders!) and wanted to share quick pic….  this is my view out my window!


There’s the convention center on the near-right where the festivities are about to begin.  There’s even a walk-way from the hotel to the center.  No street crossings! 🙂  Stay tuned for an update  – maybe this evening – on what went on today!

Today’s share is super simple – even if it does take more than one stamp set.  It uses the Vintage Leaves and the One Big Meaning stamp sets, with a little Gorgeous Grunge as a supporting character – and Into the Woods DSP.  I did mine in Tangelo Twist – but you could also do this in any color that coordinates with Into the Woods (like….Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry….all would be great color choices for this design).  See what I mean – take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Leaflets and Vintage Leaves and a Golden Thanks

Well, somehow…someway…we’re back at Monday!  I hope that y’all made it thru the time-warp that is the weekend.  We made it just fine – had a nice time with some friends on Saturday evening at their annual bonfire.  Beautiful evening and good friends.  Even made driving home in the dark (something we don’t do a lot of!) very much worth it! 🙂

My share today is inspired by a design from Freshly Made Sketches.  Their sketch #209 is very clean and simple and elegant.  Head over and take a gander when you get a shot.

I saw a lovely card that Mary Fish made with this design – check it out here.  I love her card!  And wanted to use some of the elements in a card of my own.

This one is a Thank You card, using the Leaflets Framelits dies and Vintage Leaves (one of my best bundle buys EVER!).  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves Meets Seasonal Frame!

Good morning, y’all!  When you read this, I’ll be on the way to spend a day crafting and carding and playing and eating and (hopefully!!) winning a prize or two!  Wish you could all come – I read someone was flying in from San Diego!  Yikes! 🙂

Now, today’s card is going to look awfully familiar.  That’s cause I used the same sketch challenge as my starting point that I used yesterday.  Normally, I wouldn’t do that.  But, when I first saw the sketch a couple days back, I actually had two card pictures get into my head.  So, I’m doing the one I didn’t do yesterday today.  Saturday.

So, this design was also inspired by Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #288.  Be sure to go over and check them out!

SSSC 288

For this one, I started with Into the Woods DSP as my color scheme launching point.  And I used just one TIEF – the Woodland TIEF.  For my sentiment, I used a die from the Seasonal Frame Thinlits.  And, of course, some Vintage Leaves.  You can see it’s going to go in a completely different direction than the All Ye Faithful card.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves And Many More Send Get Well Wishes!

Good Friday morning!  I hope that y’all had a great time checking out all the wonderful projects that the Happy Stampers brought you yesterday – I sure do appreciate everyone who stopped by here at Stamps-N-Lingers! 🙂

For today, I have a share that’s so in my wheelhouse that I might have made it.

Oh wait.

I DID make it!

A good friend of mine had surgery yesterday – kind of “big deal” surgery – and I wanted to make a Get Well card for him.  He’s not a fisherman, so my By the Tide set wasn’t really the right fit.  I decided to go back to a new, old standby.  Vintage Leaves and the matching Leaflets (I know I don’t have to mention the bundle savings….).  And the Woodland TIEF!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Season and Vintage Leaves on an XL Pillow Box!

Good Sunday morning to you all!  We’re getting a little taste of Fall here in the A-T-L.  We slept with the windows open last night – first time this season and it was wondrous!  Hopefully we’ll get an actual “Fall” this year – fingers crossed!

I have a share today that combines quite a few of the wonderful new products in the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  I wanted to try the new Square Pillow Box Thinlits – but I wanted to do a large one like we’d done at our Amy’s Inkin’ Krew meeting a few weeks back. And, in the catalog, they’ve got a sample Pillow Box in which they’ve incorporated one of my favorite new things – the Woodland TIEF.  So, it was kind of a shoe-in, really!  Add in some embellishments with Vintage Leaves and Leaflets Framelits, and a sprinkling of Joyful Season….and, well…take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Bohemian Hello!

Well, safely home.  No more trips until….well, just about this time next month.  And then again about a month after that and then again in November and December.  Guess it’s business-trip season, huh?  It does look like I’ll be home for Thanksgiving this year, so that’s cool!

Watching some television – well, duh – you now know my dirty little secret.  We LIKE television shows!!  But, I just saw that Walmart is busy telling everyone to get busy buying for Christmas!  Yikes.

I decided to go away from Christmas themed cards for just a minute.  More Fall-ish, to match the weather.  And, I used some items from the Annual Catalog – since those are things you can get right NOW!  I pulled out some Bohemian DSP and paired it with Vintage Leaves and a few other classic goodies.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves Express Thoughts and Prayers

Good Monday morning.  My name is Mary and I am, apparently, a stamping addict!  I’m on a one-day business trip, changed time zones, drove half the day.  Before I left the house this morning, I made sure I had my card to reference to post this post, my Cottage Greetings stamp set, my Cottage Greetings card kit, my Delightful Dijon, Basic Gray and Tuxedo Black Inks, my bone folder, SNAIL, Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue, craft ruler, SU! Paper Snips, and the “recipe” for my card.

Oh – and a few clothes for my meeting tomorrow!

I even remembered my make-up.  Don’t laugh – I went on a trip once – where I didn’t wear makeup on the airplane cause I was being pure lazy, and so I left my make-up bag in the second drawer in the bathroom.  Forgot earrings, too.  Had to make a mad dash to Target!! 😉  Since I drove to this meeting – I didn’t wear makeup today, either.  So it’s fortunate that I remembered everything!

Here we go!  Sadly, today’s card is going to be headed to my friends who lost their old Lab yesterday.  Black Jack – or BJ or just B – went to the Rainbow Bridge at the ripe old age of 14.  He was the patriarch of a large family of dogs – several labs, two miniature Doxies and an Australian Shepard.  He was a benelolent leader.  He was father to several beautiful and coveted litters of hunting Labs.  He was a very good boy, and he will be missed.  Jan and Ed and the twins (the same young men I’ve mentioned so often here), will miss his grinning face every day, but will carry their memories of him in their hearts.  I hope this card will let them know that I share in their sorrow.  And surely do understand it completely….

I went with the new Vintage Leaves stamp set and the matching Leaflets Framelits.  Which I bought as a 15% off bundle!  I paired it with the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, which has so  many wonderful sentiments for this purpose.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Garden in Bloom and English Garden Hello!

Today’s share uses the beautiful new Designer Series Paper called English Garden.  It’s reminiscent of the Painted Blooms DSP that was featured in the Sale-A-Bration at the start of the year.  Like that pretty paper, the English Garden DSP can easily stand on its own – lending any card instant color and charm.

I’d also recently received the new Garden in Bloom set – and was itching to play.  So, I combined the two and came up with this card for you.  I even used some of the new Vintage Leaves stamps and matching die set (that I got as a bundle and saved myself 15%!).  I had a real party, I tells ya and it was fun fun fun! 🙂

Take a look-see:
