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! Wild About Daisies!

Mornin’, y’all and happy Hawwmp Day!  

I wanted to quickly remind you that I’ve got a couple three openings left in my upcoming Online Host Clubs – these are great ways to earn host rewards!  I’ve got all the details on my Online Host Club page, so check it out.  And then get your name on the list!

Speaking of hosts…we found out that Stampin’ Up! will be offering an extra $35 in Stampin’ Rewards for qualifying orders or parties over $350 in June!  We’ll get more details on the 30th, and I’ll be passing them on lickety-split.  In the meantime, be thinking about how you’d spend an extra $35 of free money! 

For today, I made a pretty, flowery and feminine card with the Wild About Flowers stamp set, and a few favorite goodies from the new Delightful Daisy Suite.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

I started with a beautiful piece of paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP and matted it on a piece of Peekaboo Peach card stock.

The next layer is a rectangle of Whisper White card stock.  Using the images in the Wild About Flowers stamp set, I stamped several stems in Old Olive ink.  Then I added flowers in Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder and Peekaboo Peach.  I SNAILd the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and then onto my card front.

I used a length of Tranquil Tide 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon, looping it around and securing it in place with some strategically placed Glue Dots.  This ribbon, available on 1 June, is just lovely – it’s thin enough to be pliable but it’s got enough heft to do what you need it to do!  And it’s going to be available in all the new 2017-2019 In Colors!  And – you could get a couple of yards in each color in my Catalog Shares.  Check those out right here – still have a few spots open!

My flower is made from two punched Whisper White daisies that I cut with the Daisy Punch.  I adhered them together with a bit of Liquid Glue and then stamped one of the flower middles from the Daisy Delight stamp set, in So Saffron ink.

My sentiment is from the Eastern Beauty stamp set, stamped in Tranquil Tide on Whisper White.  I snipped a banner end and edged it with my Peekaboo Peach Stampin’ Write Marker.  

I popped the daisy on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added the sentiment with a Glue Dot.  Over the middle of the flower, I added a new Gold Faceted Gem.  And yes – that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I used the large stem from Wild About Flowers and stamped it in Old Olive in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the image off twice before stamping the panel.  The flowers are added in stamped-off-twice Calypso Coral ink.  I added a sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Tranquil Tide.

I SNAILd the panel to a Peekaboo Peach mat and into my Tranquil Tide card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a full-strength Old Olive and Calypso Coral flower on the front…

…and I added a slightly different paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP to the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  I love this Wild About Flowers stamp set – the images are so simple and beautiful!  And the way it just meshes with the Delightful Daisy is simply…wait for it….Delightful!!  Hope you like and are anxious to get this new Suite in your hands!!  And already have Wild About Flowers!!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Well – it spent a lot of the day raining here.

Almost-one-year-old Aussies love the rain!

And it’s never raining too much to play in and around the pond.

But, almost-one-year-old Aussies also know that our actions have consequences!  He’s smart that way.

Stampin’ Up! Wild About Flowers Aussie Sympathy Card

Good day-after-SB LI, y’all!  I’m suspecting if you watched the whole game – you’re a bit on the sleepy side this morning!  As I type this, we’re smack in the second quarter and Atlanta has just posted the second score of the game!  Atlanta came to play, folks!  But Tom’s no slouch – looks like it’s going to be a good one! (Monday morning addendum….Oh My Goodness!  What a game!  What a crushing defeat for Atlanta.  You have to feel bad for the Falcons – it was a heartbreaker, for sure.  But – say what you will about Tom Brady.  He is just one helluva quarterback.  And the Patriots showed real heart, didn’t they?  To come back after such a deficit – a record breaking effort.  They earned this one, for sure!  I have to say – it was one of the best SBs I’ve ever watched! Wow. 🙂 )

I don’t have any stories about Finn today – well, I do, but I’m going to save them for another day.  I got a little bit of sad news on Sunday morning – a friend of Finn’s – from where he was born – has died.  His name was Cody and he was only 10 years old.  Not related to Finn, but certainly his friend for the first 5 months of his little life.  And he’s the reason they got into Aussies in the first place so…he’s kinda the reason that Finn….is!!   

So I made a sympathy card for Cody’s parents.  I used the pretty flowers in the Wild About Flowers set and some sentiments from the Flourishing Phrases and the Better Together stamp sets.  And – cuz my mom sent it to me last year when we brought Finn home – I was able to add a little non-SU! Aussie image.   Until you get to the inside, where the dog image resides, this card would be perfect for any Sympathy Card need.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Always an Adventure for Christmas

Well, it’s Hawmp day again!  Week’s almost over – gotta love a 4-day week, huh?

Things are quiet here on the wild animal front.  Well….Duck-Duck isn’t quiet.  Ever.  She was a bit flustered this morning.  Don’t know what got into her, but she met me at the barn and gave me the what-for for the whole time I was there.  Actually came all the way in to the barn to tell me all about it.  Whatever it was.  I may never know!  Once Wayne got there and we sat down, she settled a bit.  And then came and stood in front of us and groomed.

And groomed.


And then – once every feather on her considerable body was fluffed and primped and rubbed and perfect…she stood in front of us and…balanced. On one leg.  I don’t know why.  Cuz I don’t understand “goose”.

But, I gotta say she’s funny as all get out.  And I spent a lot of time laughing like crazy at her grooming rituals! 🙂  And if I can ever figure out how to get a video from my phone into this blog – I’ll let you see it, too.

But – on to the card for the day!  My friend out in California is retiring this month.  Which means that the next time I have to go out there for work, he won’t be there.  He’s been my friend and my rock for every single event we’ve done out there.  It’s going to be pretty hard without him – and I’m going to miss him.  But I’m happy for him and want to send him a card.  Not a sappy one – just a fun one.  

His new home is a log house on a lake in Wisconsin, so I wanted an outdoor theme – and the Outdoor Adventure Framelits seemed like the way to go.  I used a few other sets, too – like the Host set called Time of Year.  And the Labeler Alphabet.  And the Hearth & Home Thinlits.  Take a look-see:
