Flowers for Every Season

Flowers for Every Season

Welcome to another Friday Stamp Off! with Jackie, Susan, and me. This week, we’re showing off our favorite Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Well, that’s kind of misleading. If I was going to show off my favorite DSP, I’d have a piece of every one we offer, because I love them all. Sadly, though, I tend to hoard DSP (as well as ribbon and embellishments), so I’m trying to reign in my impulses. I am geting better, though.

I decided to use the Flowers for Every Season DSP for this challenge. It really does have flowers for every season. And the designs are gorgeous! The flowers are lovely, and the reverse sides are so beautiful.

Flowers for Every Season, Stampin' Up!, Country Home

See what I mean? Gorgeous! I cut a piece of 3-3/4″ x 5″ DSP diagonally (twice) to get the four triangles. Then I adhered the DSP to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock with fronts of the DSP at the top and bottom and the backs on the sides.

I die-cut two Stitched Shapes Dies, one from Whisper White Cardstock and a larger one from Just Jade Cardstock, and stamped the sentiment from Country Home on the smaller circle. I layered the circles together, then adhered them to the center of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The card base is Cinnamon Cider.

So today, Flowers for Every Season is my absolute favorite DSP. Tomorrow, who knows? In Good Taste is right up there, because I love the wood and tile patterns. Ornate Garden has that gorgeous gold foil, and Playing with Patterns and Playful Pets are so fun. I don’t have Whale of a Time or World of Good (yet), but they’re on my shopping list. And I just got the Prized Peony Bundle, so that paper is also on my radar. And Forever Greenery is so beautiful; I use it a lot. I also don’t have the Artistry Blooms DSP yet. I wasn’t totally sold on it until I saw it in person. Oh, my goodness! Such lovely patterns. You can see why I had a hard time deciding on just one! I’m committed to using more DSP this year, so please, hold me accountable!

Now – please head over the Susan’s and Jackie’s blogs to see what their favorite DSP is today.

Don’t forget Bonus Days are happening this month. For every $50 you spend in July, you’ll receive a $5 coupon code to use in August. You can order 24/7 on my web site, and you don’t want to miss out on the savings. It’s like free shipping – but you get cool stuff that you’ll love. But don’t wait, because it ends August 3.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

A Day without Coffee…

A Day without Coffee…

I have no idea what a day without coffee is like. I have lots of friends who don’t drink coffee, and, honestly, I did take a minute to question our friendship. Ok, not really! All of them are amazing, albeit misguided, people. My dear friend Susan may be questioning her coffee drinking friend, though. Of course, there’s a story; but first – the card for today.

This is my first card using the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle from the Stampin’ Up!® 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Although I posted a card using that bundle on Monday, it was designed and created by my friend Sandy. So this is my first.

Nothing's Better Than, A Day without Coffee, Stampin' Up!

I thought this was a very fitting first card with this fun bundle, because I cannot remember a day in my life that began without coffee. I’m sure when I was quite small my parents didn’t give me coffee in the morning, but I can’t remember that.

This set also worked really well with the sketch for our area demonstrator challenge for July. Each month, area demos – most who are on my team, but several who are not – gather for a “meeting.” Meeting is in quotes, because it’s more of a fellowship time. We do discuss some business topics, but we also chat, eat snacks (well, not since the pandemic with Zoom meetings, but one day we’ll have snacks again), catch up on each others’ lives, and encourage one another. We also have a challenge and a make & take. This sketch challenge was from Rose. We were also supposed to use any of the 10 current In Colors, but I forgot to add that when I emailed the group, so that’s an optional add-on.

For my challenge entry, I used Misty Moonlight, Magenta Madness, and Cinnamon Cider for my In Colors. First, I stamped the sentiment in Magenta Madness on Very Vanilla Cardstock, then die-cut coffee from Cinnamon Cider. The coffee cup detail is stamped in Misty Moonlight; I stamped the “filler color” in Misty Moonlight stamped off one time.

I added a long strip of the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper (DSP) to a Misty Moonlight card base. Then I embossed the Cinnamon Cider rectangle (die-cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies) with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder. And finally, I added the sentiment layer, the coffee cup, and some 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots in Marvelous Magenta.

I love the whimsy and happiness of the Magenta Madness with the seriousness of the Cinnamon Cider die-cuts. Because coffee is serious and it makes me happy.

One thing that didn’t make me happy was the coffee machines at a Stampin’ Up!® Leadership Conference when I first met Susan. We had been communicating via social media and email for awhile, but this was our first meeting in person.

Everything was going really well until…On the first day, about mid-afternoon, I felt my energies flagging. There were no coffee stands in the meeting area, which I found weird. Oddly enough, every conference since, there has always been a coffee stand. Maybe Susan had something to do with this.

Anyway, there was a vending machine with Starbucks Frappuccino drinks in the gathering area, so I decided that would suffice. I inserted the coins necessary for my overpriced caffeinated and highly sugared beverage and pushed the button. Nothing came out. I pressed again. Nothing. I hit the coin return. Nothing. I melted down. I shook the machine. I kicked it. I may have shaken it a few more times, but still nothing. Susan stood by with wide eyes and maybe a slight fear for her life. Because, really, she did not know me at all.

After I took a few deep breaths, I calmed down somewhat, but I was still slightly miffed that I had wasted my money. Every morning after that, Susan greeted me with a coffee beverage. And since that first morning, she has been one of my besties ever. It takes so little to earn my undying devotion.

A year or so later, Susan had a meltdown of her own, but we won’t talk about that. (Of course, I will talk about this one day, but not today!)

So go have your cup of coffee (or tea, or a coke, or juice, or whatever gets you moving in the morning) and have a lovely day! Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.

Today’s Plan

Today’s Plan

Ah, plans! It doesn’t matter how or when I make them, they usually get changed. I usually make sure I have a little “wiggle room” and try to be flexible, just in case. I never want my day to be so rigid that I don’t have time for family and friends.

I got the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog before we left town for the holiday, but haven’t had time to use it yet. Fortunately, my friend Sandy sent me this card for a swap.

Nothing's Better Than, Stampin' Up!

How cute is that? Sandy stamped the cookies in Early Espresso Classic Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock. she die-cut cookies from Early Espresso Cardstock using the coordinating Love You More Than Dies. If you bundle the dies and stamps, you will save 10%.

The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso and the Crumb Cake and Early Espresso Cardstock layers are die-cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

After she sponged a little Crumb Cake ink around the edges of a piece of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, she added that to an Early Espresso card base, then added the die-cut cookies, labels and sentiment. So cute, don’t you think?

Our Office Administrator’s husband loves chocolate chip cookies. We discovered some really, really good ones at Costco several years ago, and a box of those have been his Christmas present every year, I think. Sadly, Mike usually buys them early in October or November, and we have to buy another box closer to Christmas for Jim. We need to wrap them as soon as we buy them. (Yeah, like that would keep us from eating them.) Did I mention they’re really good cookies? They’re thin and very crispy and better than anything I could bake.

Hope your week is off to a great start! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.

Field Journal

Field Journal

When the new 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog was released, I knew I wanted to have the Field Journal Stamp Set. Here’s why.

When the boys were young, Mike & I homeschooled them. We had such a fun time together. They built their own computers, learned how to do basic car maintenance, take care of a house (including the maintenance stuff), and, of course, they learned to read, write (sort of), do math, and they learned history, science, and the other basics. Fortunately for the writing goal, they learned to type, so they are masters at online communication. Their writing is legible, but probably won’t win awards, and that’s good enough for me. Their father and I also have abysmal handwriting, so I decided not to expect a lot. (My excuse is that I’m left handed and none of my teachers knew how to teach left-handed kids to write. Maybe I can use that same excuse, since they’re both right-handed like their father.)

My main goal in homeschooling was to make sure they could read, do math, and know how to learn about anything else they wanted to know. In that, we were very successful. The boys know more than I do about so many things.

While were were “doing school,” though, I tried to combine as many subjects as I could in one fun event. We’d take a walk in the park, then sit and sketch wildflowers, waterfowl, or whatever else they wanted to sketch. Then we’d come home and research whatever they had sketched so we’d know more about it. This would cover Phys Ed, science, art, and writing in one fun outing.

When I saw the Field Journal Stamp Set, it reminded me of our days in the park. I finally broke it out to have a little fun with it the other day. It’s perfect for a #simplestamping card.

Field Journal, Stampin' Up!

I have to admit, I’m not super happy with this card. I should have just stamped in Basic Gray and Smoky Slate ink (my first plan) and let it go at that. Then it would have looked like a sketching in the park. But, no. I had to color the images with Stampin’ Blends after I stamped.

First, I think the leaf with the lady bug looks like a frog. I have a hard time seeing a leaf and lady bug. It just looks like a frog with a big red eye. The duck is ok, except the eye doesn’t show. *sigh* This is maybe the first blog you’ve ever read when the author told you all the bad stuff about the card. But I wanted you to see that even if you don’t think a card is really great, others might have a different opinion. Or not. We’ll see, right?

Anyway – for this card, I stamped the images on a piece of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) using Basic Gray Classic Ink. Then I colored them with Mossy Meadow, Cinnamon Cider, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the sentiment in Poppy Parade Classic Ink. Then I layered it all to a Mossy Meadow card base. I added a few Champagne Basic Jewels to the card to add a little more bling and interest. (Just kidding. I added them because I tend to hoard embellishments, so I wanted to use these before they retire. But they do add a little bling and interest.)

This is a super fun set, and I hope to have some samples soon that I don’t have to apologize for. Soon!

Once again, I’m going to leave you with the scene from my favorite musical, 1776, that leaves me sobbing.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day – and a wonderful weekend.

Bonus Days Are Back

Bonus Days Are Back

Bonus Days are here again! (No, I won’t break out into song. At least, not out loud. Of course, “the skies above are clear again…” is running through my head.)

From now through August 3, 2020, you can earn a $5 coupon from Stampin’ Up!® for every $50 you spend before tax/shipping. Then collect all your coupons and redeem them August 4-31 – just in time for the new August-December Mini Catalog (fka – “Holiday Catalog”).

How cool is that? Coupons will be sent via email, so be sure to save them. I start an email folder called Bonus Day Coupons and save mine there. Then it’s easy to copy and paste them into my order. If you earn multiple codes in one order, you’ll receive one email with multiple codes.

You can order online or through a workshop. Order online with the hostess code WFVSDWBM and you’ll receive a gift from me if your order totals $50 or more. If your order is $150 or more, please do not use the hostesss code, as you’ll want to keep the Stampin’ Rewards for yourself.

Need a quick way to get to $50? Order the Forever Fern Bundle! You’ll get the Forever Fern Stamp Set and the Forever Flourishing Dies, earn a coupon code, and save 10%.

Forever Fern, Stampin' Up!, Bonus Days

I am enjoying this bundle more and more. For this card, I stamped some of the greenery on Whisper White Cardstock using Just Jade Classic Ink. I’m loving this new In Color! It works beautifully with Shaded Spruce and Mint Macaron, along with the 2019-2021 In Color Pretty Peacock.

I ran the Whisper White Cardstock through my embossing machine with one of the Greenery Embossing Folders. (If you look really closely, you’ll see my “oops.” I ran it through with the wrong side up the first time. Most people don’t look that closely, because they’re thrilled to have a handmade card, so I let it stand.) I cut a few more pieces from the Forever Flourishing Dies from Gold Foil, then layered them behind a stamped Just Jade circle and a slightly larger Pretty Peacock circle. The sentiment is also from the Forever Fern Stamp Set, and I stamped it in Pretty Peacock Ink. The card base is Just Jade Cardstock.

I hope you’re enjoying the new 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. If you live in the US and do not have one, please let me know (with your address) and I’ll send one out!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

News from Stampin’ Up!®

News from Stampin’ Up!®

Happy Monday, Stamping Friends! I have a few announcements and a fun video for you today.

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss

First, you may know already, but there’s a new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. It’s not quite ready to be shipped out yet, so it’s “unorderable” at the present. But here’s the good news – you will be able to order it on September 1! I’m really excited, because two of my older machines have had unfortunate mishaps during our travels. While they still work, it will be nice to have one that’s not limping a bit.

Join My Team

If you’re a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator, you can preorder the machine beginning August 4. Here’s more good news – you still have another day or two (depending on when you’re reading this) to join my Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Team and add a stamp/tool bundle to your starter kit. That’s $125 in product of your choice, business items (catalogs, order forms, etc.) and the bundle of your choice. But hurry! This promotion ends June 30 – just in time for you to enjoy the Holiday Catalog preorder in July and the Cut & Emboss preorder in August.

Bonus Days

Bonus Days are earlier this year! For every $50 USD you spend July 1 – August 3, 2020 (before shipping and tax), you earn a $5 USD Bonus Days coupon code that can be redeemed August 4-31, 2020. You can earn a coupon every time you spend $50, but the $50 must be spent at one time. (In other words, if you have a $40 order, then spend $10 later in the month, that doesn’t count.)

Stampin’ Seal & Seal+

Finally, I’ve had the opportunity to use the new Stampin’ Seal, and I love it! It’s really easy to use and holds wonderfully. Stampin’ Seal+ is a much stronger version of the product for 3D projects and heavier items you need to adhere.

Here’s an introduction of the product from George from Stampin’ Up!®.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

Forever Fern

Forever Fern

Happy Friday, Stamping Friends! I hope you’ve had a fabulous week. Today is another Stamp Off! – and I’m so excited about this one.

The theme for this week is “Favorite New Catalog Stamp Set.” I had a hard time choosing, because choosing a favorite stamp set is kind of like choosing a favorite child; I just can’t! But I do have one that I haven’t used as much as I’d like, so I chose that one. Actually, I used a stamp set, a bundle, and a half bundle. (Sounds like the beginning of a joke, don’t you think? A stamp set, a bundle, and a half bundle ran into a bar…)

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Holly did a Zoom class and taught the All in One card. I love this idea, because it reminds me of days long ago. When I graduated from high school many, many, many years ago, one of my gifts was a stationery set. It was perfect for me, because I have always loved to write letters. This set didn’t need envelopes. You folded the card, then folded the flap down, and sealed with a gold circle sticker. So fun!

Here’s my “All in One” using the Forever Fern Bundle and the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set. I also used the Sunflowers Dies from the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. (A note about bundles: You can definitely order the stamps and dies separately, but if you want both the dies and stamps, it’s better to order the bundle, because you can save 10%.)

Forever Fern, Stampin' Up!, Tasteful Touches

We made one of these types of cards at classes this month, and you do not have to add layers. In fact, our class card was just one layer (with some die cuts). But I wanted to punch this one up a bit, so I added 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock layers to the bottom two panels.

Before I explain the card, here’s the cutting/scoring diagram.

First, cut a piece of 8-1/2″ x 11″ card stock to 5-1/2″ x 11″. You’ll have a 3″ x 11″ piece left over. For my card, I used Purple Posy Cardstock.

Next, score at 4-1/4″ and 8-1/2″. (If you see an extra score near the 8-1/2″ mark, ignore it. I originally had the incorrect directions. Just score at 4-1/4″ and 8-1/2″ and ignore the picture!) When you fold on the score, you have a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card with a top flap of 2-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.

You can leave the flap square, if you’d like. It still looks great. But if you’d like a point on your flap, measure 2-3/4″ in on the 2-1/2 x 5-1/2″ flap and make a little dot in pencil. Now cut from the dot to the first score line. Repeat on the other side.

Now – fold your card on the score lines, and fold the flap down. If it doesn’t like flat, just trim about 1/16″ off the bottom of the card (not the pointed end; the other end). Seriously, do you think the person you give it to is going to measure it and say, “Oops – this isn’t 11″ long!” No, they will not. They will be so happy to have this amazing card, they’re just going to do their best not to drool on it.

Now it’s time for the Forever Fern Bundle. Stamp the greenery from the stamp set (two each) in Just Jade, Highland Heather, and Misty Moonlight Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, then die cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies. I added some Vellum Cardstock and Gold Foil leaves using the Sunflowers Dies.

Layer them on one of the Whisper White panels. I added a strip of the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, and a bow of Just Jade Ribbon.

On the bottom panel, Stamp the sentiment from Tasteful Touches in Gorgeous Grape Classic Ink, then stamp more greenery from Forever Fern in Just Jade Classic Ink.

Since I’m not mailing this card (I’m giving it to my mom), I added some Pearls around the greenery and sentiment. You can mail these, but mine was getting a bit thick with all the greenery and pearls, and I didn’t want any to get lost in the mail.

I stamped a few more of the Forever Fern images on the front and back. Then, for fun, I stamped some greenery in Just Jade Classic Ink on Just Jade Cardstock, then die-cut the image from the card stock and an Adhesive Sheet to make a sticker to hold the card closed. You can also use circle punches/dies, Adhesive Sheets, and Foil Sheets. How fun is that?

Now, please head over to Jackie’s and Susan’s blogs to see their favorites! I can’t wait till tomorrow to see.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy! Have a lovely day.

Playful Pets

Playful Pets

Mike and I are definitely “pet people.” Except for a short period before and after our dog Tony, we’ve always had a pet. Until recently, we’ve always had dogs, but somehow we also added two cats to the mix. Fortunately, our dog Max and the two cats get along really well – probably because they’re all the same size.

When I saw the Playful Pets Suite, I knew I had to have it. There are cute dogs and cats, and some of the images in the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper (DSP) can be cut with the Pets Dies. Take a look.

Pampered Pets, Stampin' Up!

I used the Pampered Pets Stamp Set and the Pets Dies – which can be bundled for a 10% savings, Playful Pets DSP, and, for a little more fun, some Playing with Patterns DSP.

First, I stamped the sentiment and dog bowl in Highland Heather Classic Ink on a Purple Posy card base. Next, I added the DSP to the side.

I cut two squares – a scalloped one from Highland Heather Cardstock and a smaller square from the Playing with Patterns DSP. The adorable little dog is die-cut from the Playful Pets DSP. Easy!

You have less than a week to take advantage of the catalog kick-off. Host a $250 minimum party by June 30 and earn an additional $25 in Stampin’ Rewards. That’s a minimum of $50 in free products!

If you join my team before June 30, you can add a stamp/tool bundle to your starter kit. For $99 (plus state tax) you can select $125 in product plus a stamp set/die bundle or stamp set/punch bundle. How fun! But don’t dither; time is running out.

I hope you have a beautiful day today! Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.

Peaceful Moments

Peaceful Moments

Welcome to another week with Stamping with Buffy! We had a wonderful weekend with family – swimming, eating, and celebrating the dads.

Today, I have a beautiful card for you using the Peaceful Moments Bundle. Actually, I only uses the Poppy Moments Dies, but you might as well add the wonderful sentiments from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set as well. Take a look.

Peaceful Moments, Poppy Moments, Stampin' Up!

This uses several new products – the Just Jade and Magenta Madness Cardstock (two of the new 2020-2022 In Colors) as well as the Greenery Embossing Folders. First, cut a piece of Vellum Cardstock the same size as the Magenta Madness Cardstock. (Sadly, I don’t have the measurements, but it can be any size. Just be sure the Magenta Madness and Vellum are the same size.) Emboss the vellum with the Greener Embossing Folder. Now take a minute to simply bask in the loveliness of the embossed vellum.

Die-cut the appropriate pieces of the flower using Basic Black, Whisper White, and Vellum Cardstock. Die-cut the leaves using Just Jade and Soft Seafoam Cardstock. Layer using a Fine-tip Glue Pen.

Add the flower and leaves to the embossed vellum using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next, add the vellum to the Magenta Madness Cardstock, being sure to keep the adhesive under the cardstock elements so they won’t show through the vellum. Then add this to a Whisper White card base.

I stamped a small sentiment on a scrap of Magenta Madness Cardstock, then used my Paper Snips to create a banner. The last touch is to add a few Gilded Gems to the card front.

I think the white-on-vellum look is very striking, and, of course, I love embossed vellum. Give this technique a try. It adds an immediate “Wow!” to your project.

Before I leave, I have to show you a picture of Miss Amelia. She is growing so fast, and her parents have been busy buying her new clothes. She loves dresses, and more often than not, that’s what she picks to wear each day. Today she wore one of the new dresses her mom bought her, and was so excited to show it – and the matching hat – to Wes when he got home from work. Of course, his Father’s Day present was something she loves just as much as he will (a kit of science projects),  so I’m thinking they’ll be doing that on rainy afternoons while he’s off.

She has cute little sandals, but her favorite footwear is none. (I can relate.) I can’t believe how big she’s getting. She has officially finished Kindergarten, but is still working through the summer. She is loving math; she finished her Kindergarten math book back in March and is almost finished with the first grade book. And we can’t spell anything in front of her any more, because she can sound it out. We are all making sure she knows that a pretty face is nice, but a kind heart and an intelligent mind is more important. (Yes, I have a grandma bias. I’m not sorry, of course, because it’s my right. I have lots of friends who also have beautiful/handsome and brilliant grands as well, so they understand. We are a happy and blessed lot!)

Way To Go(at)!

Way To Go(at)!

Without a doubt, the Way To Goat Stamp Set from the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog is one of my favorites. The sentiments are so fun, and the goats are adorable. You can make them simple or step them up.

Here’s a birthday card I made with this set.

Way to Goat, Stampin' Up!

This is another case of letting the Designer Series Paper (DSP) do the work for you. I thought this design of the Flowers for Every Season DSP was perfect since the goat was already eating flowers. Plus there’s that little tin can in case s/he needs a little snack later.

I added the DSP to a Just Jade card base. (How much are you loving the new In Colors? Me too!) I stamped the goat image and the tin can in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, then colored with Smoky Slate, Ivory, Just Jade and Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends.

I love that the stamp set has a ground. It’s always more fun when your images are grounded and not just floating around like there’s no gravity. I stamped the ground in Crumb Cake, then added the sentiments in Just Jade Classic Ink. The second half of the “I got you a cake” sentiment (stamped inside the card) is, “but I ate it.” Very fitting for a goat, don’t you think?

After die-cutting the image using the Stitched Rectangles Dies, I sponged the edges with a little Just Jade Classic Ink before adding it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thinking about gravity…this is the first scientific term Amelia learned. She was about three or four. She came running into the house one day and said, “Seesa, you know why we don’t just float off into air? Grabity! Because it grabs you and keeps you on the ground.” Makes sense, right? Yesterday I got a picture from Wesley. They are soaking an egg in vinegar to see how long it takes to dissolve the shell. She loves science!
