Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Words 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 – Laurie’s getting us ready for Thanksgiving with her challenge to us this week.  I know it’ll give your creative mojo a bump!  So I hope you’ll come and play along with us!

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 did a little color blocking on this one – using the pretty blocks to accent my Gather Together Fall images and sentiments from Well Said and the Word Wishes dies!  Add in a little In Good Taste DSP and…perfect Thanksgiving card!  Take a look-see:

And here’s our Paper Players badge – I hope you’ll come and play along! 🙂

And my layout was inspired by the CASE the Designer challenge from Global Design Project.

I started with some of the pretty In Good Taste DSP and stamped the wheat image from Gather Together in stamped-off-once Early Espresso all over the panel.  Then I matted it on Pumpkin Pie for the card front.

On a piece of Fluid 100 paper I stamped three blocks using my small acrylic blocks – these are “B” Blocks.  I added Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry ink to the block – spritzed it lightly with water using my Stampin’ Spritzer – and pressed the block down onto the paper and held it for a beat.

When the watercolored blocks were well and truly dry, I tore around the image to make the sentiment/art panel.

Using my sticky note masks, I added pumpkins and wheat images to the blocks in stamped-off-once Early Espresso.  Here’s a tip: once you create sticky note masks – SAVE them!  Keep them right in the stamp case – ready for your next project! 🙂

Using the single word sentiment from Well Said – I stamped it in Early Espresso on the art panel.

I adhered a piece of Early Espresso to a Foam Adhesive Sheet and then cut the Word Wishes sentiment from it.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front.  Then I used the same die to cut a bronze Brushed Metallic card stock to cut the sentiment again and adhered it to the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

I popped the art panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I ran a length of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim thru an Acorn Trinket and tied a simple bow.

Then I adhered the embellishment to the card front with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I repeated the color blocking on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  When it was dry, I added a sentiment from the Gather Together set in Early Espresso.  Next to it, I added a large pumpkin in Cajun Craze and some wheat in Crushed Curry – no masking needed!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more pumpkins and wheat on the front – the double pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie, the large in Cajun Craze and the wheat in Crushed Curry.  I did use my sticky note masks here…

…and I added some more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap – then stamped it with Early Espresso wheat from Gather Together!

Et Voila!  How fun is this color blocking technique?  I love it – and love that it’s different every time!  Gather Together is one of my favorite stamp sets – even without using the bundled Gathered Leaves dies.  I’m also a big fan of word dies – and the Word Wishes dies – with its coordinating Well Said set is a perfect tool to have for all sorts of wonderful sentiments!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Word Wishes for a Happy Easter

Monday cometh!  Or….is Here-eth, I suppose is more correct!  Hope you had a great weekend and that your week looks to be a good one!

I made y’all an Easter Card today – do you realize that Easter is only 7 weeks off?  That means it’s time to be thinking about Easter cards.

And pondering the age-old question…why would a bunny (who OBTW….CLUCKS!!) lay an egg??  Even a delicious candy egg with a soft and creamy center.  And – why only at EASTER??

It simply defies logic!

Sorry – back to my card!  I used the pretty Easter Promise stamp set and…the Word Wishes Die set (this is in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!).  It’s all backed up by the Pleased As Punch DSP (from the 2020 Coordination Product Release).  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of new Pleased As Punch DSP from the 2020 Coordination Product Release) that I matted on Daffodil Delight for the card front.

I cut a smaller piece of Whisper White and, using the pretty image from Easter Promise, stamped the flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I colored the image with my Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend Combo Pack – plus the Dark Mango Melody Blend for the stamen.

I matted the image on Daffodil Delight and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front.

I made the egg-shell using the Dino Days Die set – cutting it from the same Pleased As Punch DSP that I used on the card front.  And – ready to have your mind blown? 🙂

The egg die in the Dino Dies matches the egg stamp image in the Full of Happiness stamp set!

I popped the egg shell over the stems of the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the small narrow die in the Stitched Rectangle Dies set, I cut three rectangles from Vellum card stock.  These I adhered to the egg shell with Glue Dots.

Using the Word Wishes Die Set, I cut the words in Daffodil Delight and used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the Vellum rectangles.

Finally, I used the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color three Pearl Basic Jewels then I adhered them to the card front.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I matted a second piece of Pleased As Punch DSP on Daffodil Delight and used Liquid Glue to adhere it in my Granny Apple Green card base.  I cut another small piece of Whisper White and stamped a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Granny Apple Green.  I stamped and colored the Easter Promise flower in the corner.  Finally, I adhered a Pearl Basic Jewle that I’d colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight 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 Easter Promise flower on the front…

…and more of the Pleased As Punch DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  These beautiful flowers from Easter Promise are so bright and cheerful – and harbingers of hope that Spring – and the promise of Easter! – WILL come!  I love the Word Wishes sentiment die set – it works so well with this (and so many other!) stamp set!

Don’t forget to delve into your Annual Catalog goodies to pair up with the Mini catalog and Sale-a-bration products, okay? And, of course, the pretty Pleased As Punch DSP is so darned versatile!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Sunday was outside-jobs day.  The one day in a bit where there was no rain AND it got warm enough to be outside without 28 layers of insulated clothes on!

We put hay in the back for the ladies…

Then – cuz this is happening on the kitchen island…

…we realized that it’s time to get busy getting the raised beds ready for planting!

Not only is it time for a dirt refresh – or, more accurately – a Mel’s Mix refresh! – but we’ve decided to add a board and deepen the beds.

I put my best welder on the job!

One down – four to go!

See the difference?

Finn was banned to the carport…

…which he didn’t mind one bit.  He’s not a fan of the loud machines – like the welder.  And he’s not a fan of sparky-fire-y things, either.  Like…the weld!

Which he really REALLY didn’t need to watch!  Trying to treat his weld-burned-eyeballs with potato slices…can’t even imagine!

Also?  They don’t work.

At all.  Guess how I know? 😳😳😳

Stampin’ Up! Wrapped In Plaid Pine Trees

Good morning and happy weekend!  Hope you’ve got something fun planned! 🙂

I’m headed down South a piece to a “Stamptember” event!  There’ll be a group of Demo’s from the SE – and some folk from SU! in attendance.  We’re going to stamp (duh!) and eat and probably kibbitz a lot!  I think it’ll be fun!  The downside, though, is that it’s enough of a “piece” there and back that I won’t be able to do a video tonight! 🙁  But…I’ll try to post pics of the event on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page throughout the day as I’m able! 🙂

My card for today is perfect if you’re trying to avoid inky fingers for a minute.  That’s right – no stamp was inked in the making of this card!  I used the wunnermus Wrapped In Plaid DSP, the Pine Tree Punch, a die from the Word Wishes die set and…some 1/2″ Classic Weave Ribbon.  Take a look-see:
