Stampin’ Up! Botanical Fun Fold Card for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Good morning, y’all – it’s Thursday and that means it’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop Day!  We’re working on a color challenge, but first…

This week we’re doing something a little different with our Happy Stampers hop.  As many of you may have noticed, our hop founder, Sandi MacIver, hasn’t been able to join us for the last few weeks.  She’s been dealing with some significant health issues and she’s having surgery today to start her treatment.  We wanted to let Sandi know that we’re thinking about her, so we’ve all created a card, using this week’s challenge, that will send a little hug her way.  We’re looking forward to having Sandi join us again soon!  Please help us send lots of positive thoughts to her up in Canada, would you? 🙂

So – here’s what we all used as a starting point for our cards for Sandi this week….


I saw a fun-fold card out on Pinterest (Debbie Henderson at Debbie’s Designs), and I decided to give it a try!  And – it’s pretty darned easy.  This week’s color combo pretty much screamed Botanical Builder to me, so that’s the direction I went.  I added an encouraging sentiment from Something To Say.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sunburst Over the Rainbow and…Blog Candy!

Christmas Cactus

Yep – that’s my somewhat confused Christmas Cactus.  That picture was not taken at Christmas.  Nope – it was taken this morning!  It’s going a little bit crazy.  Apparently it’s on a Euclidian calendar.  Or a Martian calendar.  Or…something!  Cuz it didn’t do such a great job blooming at the Christmas that we all just observed! 🙂  But, I admit that I love it – I think it’s just one of the prettiest things around and I haven’t been able to kill it yet – it just gets all gorgeous in spite of me!

So – in honor of its blooming beauty and insistence that it simply must be Christmas somewhere….I’m giving away some blog candy!  Read on down and I’ll tell you what you need to do to get entered!

Today’s share is my first attempt at using the Sunburst Thinlit.  I’ve tried a few times and just not been successful.  I have no idea why – it just kind of bamboozles me!  But today – I think I got it!  I added a very apropos sentiment from the Over the Rainbow stamp set (Annual Catalog) and some pretty Wildflower Fields DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch on Wildflower Fields!

Good morning!  I hope that you’re having as nice a weekend as I am!  The weather is drop-dead gorgeous – we’re talking shirt sleeves and birds singing and ducks paddling in the pond.  And today (Saturday – as I type this!) isn’t even the warm day!  To be honest, I’m happy where it is – for me, it could stay at this temperature 24/7/365 and I’d be GTG!

Wayne and I spent some time outside building my new raised Square Foot Gardens!  Well, while I’m making a card, and posting it and getting dinner ready, he’s still out there.  I can hear the grinder and the welder sparking!

Wayne Welding - Stamps-N-Lingers

Yea, I know.  A man welding  – especially in those sexy green welding “sleeves”! – is hot!  Many many years ago, we were working together on a steel structure.  I thought it was so “cool” how the weld spark looked in the night – and I was…well, head over heels, so…I took lots of pictures.  I thought I was being so careful not to look right at the spark.  Well, at 2 am I discovered I hadn’t been so careful!  Safety tip – pictures of welding at night can get you in trouble.  Also, looking away from the spark, but at a metal building where the reflection is will also get you in trouble!  I’d burned my eyes enough to need to go to the doc in the morning.  Wayne told me to put raw potatoes on them.

Uhm.  No – that didn’t really help! 😉

Anywho – here’s what he’s working on today!

Flower Bed - Stamps-N-Lingers

That’s the first bed all ready to fill and plant!  That means it’s for sure spring!! Can’t wait to see them full of tomatoes and peppers and turnips and kale…. 🙂

Well, on to the real reason you dropped in, yes?  Being that it’s feeling all spring-y today, I was feeling in the mood for flowers.  And butterflies.

I ended up with flowers – not the Rose Wonder flower I’d pulled out to use, but the pretty Grateful Bunch flowers (my faves!).  And I never did add a butterfly….take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rose Wonder Joins Grateful Bunch

It’s Friday again!  Whoo-hoo! I’m almost back to being “on” Eastern time – which is good for the morning, but bad for my evening stamping sessions!  When I’m still on Mountain or Pacific time, I get a lot done in the evening!  Not so much when the old bod realizes where it is!! 🙂

Thanks to all who came by yesterday for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop – it means a lot to all of us to have you see what we put together for you each week!

Today’s share is the last card I made in Arizona.  I combined flowers and flowers and flowers – all from the fun Grateful Bunch bundle with a couple of great sentiments from Rose Wonder.  This one went out to my friend who’s fighting a battle with cancer.  I purposely made it a little over the top – cheery and warm.  I wanted the flowers to be abundant – to look like a cottage garden overflowing with beautiful blooms.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Botanicals Thanks For You!

Well, it’s happened.  I’ve got projects to share stockpiled on my desk.  We’re done with our project.  There’re no more excuses.  All that’s left is to tape together boxes, load them up and get them to the post office tomorrow.  And then I’m out on Saturday!  I do have to keep reminding myself that I have tomorrow to pack and mail and mentally prepare.  You’d think I’d be extra anxious to leave and get home, but…I’m not all that comfortable with changes.  It’s forever been true for me that I’m better at being gone than I am at getting gone.  It’s why I do 3 – 4 month trips versus a couple of weeks and then home and then back and then home….  I nest up.  I get comfy where I am and in the routine du jour.  Switching it up….yuk.

But, tomorrow it’s time – and, truthfully, once I start the process and get into it – all will be well.  It’s funny, I can almost feel my brain make the transition from being “here” to being “there”.  I can’t predict when it will happen – but I’ll all of a sudden realize, sometime between right this second and getting on the plane on Sunday….I’m ready to be home!

And that probably falls into the TMI category, and what-the-heck-is-she-talking-about-why-doesn’t-she-get-on-with-the-card!! 😉  Sorry.

So, for today, I have a card that leans heavily on some of the beautiful papers and stamps in the Sale-a-Bration flyer.  Wildflower Fields DSP is some of the prettiest paper I’ve seen.  I’ve combined it with another of the free goodies in the SAB – Botanicals For You.  Add in the ever-versatile One Big Meaning, from the Annual Catalog and a little Botanical Garden Designer Vellum and….take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch Thanks for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop


Good morning, y’all – it’s Thursday and that means it’s Happy Stamper Blog Hop Day!  Whether you came from Shelagh’s blog or direct – I hope that you’ll make your way thru all the Blog Hoppin’ Ladies today!

We worked a color challenge this week – one that encompasses colors smack dab in the middle of my wheelhouse!  Here’s the deal-y-o:


Uhm – yea!  My colors, for sure!

So, since I was already in my comfort zone, I just let myself roll with it, and used an Occasions catalog set that has absolutely become one of my favorite favorite sets!!  The Grateful Bunch bundle – in which I got the Grateful Bunch stamp set and the matching Blossom Bunch Punch.  Now, if you’ve been following along, you know I made the mistake of not buying the bundle from the git-go!  So, I had to buy the punch after the fact – a purchase I’m really happy with!  If you’ve not gotten the bundle – get it.  If you did the same as I did – thinking you wouldn’t want/need the punch! – check the Weekly Deals.  The Blossom Bunch Punch is there! 🙂

I combined them with some Wildflower Fields DSP – from the Sale-a-Bration Flyer, and here’s what I came up with this week.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Grateful Bunch Love Note

Aaaannnndddd…’s Monday again!   Amazing how fast that came around this time – one day off just doesn’t really cut it! I shopped.  I laundered.  I made cards!  I ate awesome Mexican food and had a truly wonderful Margarita.  Then it was time for bed and back at it.  Anybody else have a short weekend?  Is it really even a weekend if it’s only one day?  I don’t know. 😉

Now, for today, the stamp set I used is one that you’ve seen before – called Grateful Bunch.  It has a few great flower images, and those images coordinate with a punch.  That I stubbornly hadn’t acquired when last we looked at this set.  But this time – I’m the proud new owner of the Blossom Bunch Punch!  Can’t even sort of tell you how much quicker things go when you’ve got the right tools.  As my friend is wont to say….you need to have the proper tool for the proper job! 🙂  So – with the right tools, I used Grateful Bunch and its matching punch to create today’s share.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Bear Hugs Love Card

Good Friday morning, everyone!  I hope that today finds you looking forward to a fun and restful weekend.  For me – this is like Thursday.  Yes, we’re working tomorrow.  Working on Saturday.  Three pretty unhappy words to put in one sentence! 🙁

About 10 years ago I’d have said – no worries.  I’m young.  I can deal with it.

Not so much anymore!  I don’t do so good with one-day-weekends these days!

Do you feel sorry for me?

Do ya?


Well, fiddle-dee-dee….let’s just worry about that tomorrow, shall we?? 🙂

Today’s card share uses one of the most fun new stamp set bundles in the Occasions Catalog, Bear Hugs  – paired with my second favoritist new Designer Paper – the Wildflower Fields DSP in the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Awesome Grateful Bunch!

Good morning!  I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!  Yesterday was just as bad as I figured it would be – I packed one Priority Mail box with paper and punches (it weighs approximately a million pounds!).  This morning we’re going to see if I need to pull more out of the suitcases and pack a second box.  Keep your fingers crossed, okay? 😉

Today’s share uses another new Occasions catalog stamp set – Grateful Bunch.  But, let me ask you a question, y’all.  Am I a complete goofus?  Did I – or did I not – learn a valuable lesson when I failed to buy the Among the Branches bundle in the Holiday Catalog?  When I said to myself – “self, you’re not going to need or want that stamp set – just get the Woodland TIEF – you don’t need the bundle”.  And then, not a week and change later, did I or did I not buy the Among the Branches stamp set??  The answer is no – I did not learn a lesson.  Cause yes – I did exactly that.

Now, I’ve told you over and over what a great deal buying bundles is.  Right?  But – apparently I do not listen to my own advice.  When making my ginormous Occasions Catalog order last week, I said to myself – “self, you’re not going to need or want that punch that coordinates with Grateful Bunch.  Just get the stamp set”.  So, once again I went against my own advice.

So, for today’s card – which uses Grateful Bunch, and COULD have used the matching punch (Blossom Bunch Punch – available with Grateful Bunch for $33.00), I did a lot of fussy cutting! 😉  I combined the pretty flowers and sentiments from Grateful Bunch with some Wildflower Fields DSP and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Wildflower Fields Thank You for the Happy Stamper’s Blog Hop


Here we are with the first Happy Stampers Blog Hop of 2016!  We’re all having fun with Sale-A-Bration (I really REALLY love free stuff – and there’s a LOT of it to be had right now!) and stamping and creating with our goodies – new and not-so-new!  I hope that you’ll take a minute to hop thru the hop and tell everyone what you think of their projects!

Today’s hop centered around a sketch Challenge.  Here’s where we started!

Happy Stampers Blog Hop Sketch for 7 Jan 16

I decided to work with some of my very favorite new items from the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  Wildflower Fields DSP and the coordinating Flowering Fields stamp set.  I got both of them free with a $50 order (well, one for each $50 order, of course!).  And they’re so pretty – take a look-see:
