Sending Happiness & Cheer

Sending Happiness & Cheer

Happy Monday, er, Tuesday, my friends! We had a whirlwind weekend and I just wasn’t ready to let it go. We celebrated Wesley’s 30th birthday Saturday. His actual birthday is Wednesday, but since the kids work and Amelia has to go to school, we decided to celebrate on the weekend. It was lots of fun and nice to have some sunshine after several rainy days.

Mike & I are also changing insurance, so we had to head down to the mountain house to take some photos. We didn’t stay long, but it took a large chunk of Sunday. So here I am, finally showing you a card I made last week.

Bottled Happiness, Stampin' Up!

I used the flowers, leaves, and a sentiment from the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set from the 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. This card was so simple to create using the Stamparatus. Honestly, if you haven’t tried it yet, you need to!

First, I cut a 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Basic White Cardstock and placed it in the corner of my Stamparatus. Then I laid the flower stamp in the left corner of the card stock, making sure it only took up (approximately) 1/4 of the square. I made sure some would be off the card stock, so I’d have room in the center for the center. I stamped the flowers in Orchid Oasis Classic Ink, then turned the card stock 1/4 turn, inked the flowers and stamped again. I repeated this two more times so all four corners were stamped.

Next, I lined up the stamp with the leaves and flower centers. First, I “practice stamped” on a clear piece of plastic. Since this is a photopolymer stamp set, you can use the heavier transparent sheet that comes with it. When I was happy with the placement, I stamped with Parakeet Party Classic Ink, turning the card stock until all the flowers were complete.

I used Sweet Sorbet Classic Ink for the sentiment. It fit perfectly in the center of the flowers.

I cut a 2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper in Parakeet Party and a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White Cardstock. I ran the Basic White piece through the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder, then adhered it to a Sweet Sorbet card base. Next I added the Glimmer Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and then the stamped layer, also with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For a little more “splash” of Sweet Sorbet, I added some 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card.

If you want to see more Bottled Happiness ideas, check out Susan’s & Jackie’s blogs. They both have used the Bottled Happiness Bundle (stamps and bottle die) the past few days. Can you tell we love it?

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

Tea Boutique Memories & More Cards & Envelopes

Tea Boutique Memories & More Cards & Envelopes

I want to remind you about the “join” promotion that’s happening now at Stampin’ Up!® Throughout the month of May, you can add new In Color Grid Paper, new In Color DSP, new In Color Stampin’ Pads, and the new In Color Cardstock Assortment to your Starter Kit. You get all this plus $125 in current Stampin’ Up!® product for only $99 plus your state’s tax. Shipping is free. This is an amazing deal, and you’re guaranteed a minimum 20% discount on all orders. You can also order products early and get a first glance at the new catalogs. But there’s so much more than that.

About 8-10 years ago, I read a post from a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator on our chat page. She lived in upstate New York and was looking for something to put on her car to advertise her business. I had some logo clings that would work inside the car (a must for that crazy northern weather!). I didn’t need them, so I sent them to her. For “payment,” she sent me a beautiful card. At the time, I was thinking I got the better end of that deal. because her card was so gorgeous..

Fast forward many years, and I know I got the better end of the deal. Susan Horr has been my Stampin’ Up!® bestie ever since we made that trade.

I finally got to meet Susan and her amazing husband Rob at a Stampin’ Up! Leadership event, and I had the best time. Susan is amazing! And I’m not just saying that because she brought me coffee every day. (That’s a long story – and Susan will say it was mostly a self-preservation act on her end.)

Susan’s crafting style is Clean & Elegant. Mine is, “What mess is this??” I drool over Susan’s cards, and she gets hives when she sees my sponging, tearing, and crumpling. But even though our crafting styles are miles apart, we’re still great friends.

Susan and I both tend to “over buy” paper and embellishments, so we’ve started sharing products. Susan sent me half of her Tea Boutique Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper (DSP). Oh. My. Goodness! These are part of the Tea Boutique Suite, which includes the Cup of Tea Bundle (Cup of Tea Stamp Set, Teacup Dies), Tea Boutique DSP, and the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes. I totally need to find something amazing to send back to her!

The Cup of Tea Bundle is on my “have to have this!” list, but until I get it, look what I did with the Cards & Envelopes.

Tea boutique, Stampin' Up!, Hand-Penned Petals, Charming Sentiments

The Tea Boutique cards and envelopes showcase all the new 2022-2024 In Colors. For my card, I chose to use the Tahitian Tide card. It was so simple. The envelope is already decorated, and the card has a beautiful Tahitian Tide/Basic White pattern. To make this card, all I had to do was stamp the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set in Tahitian Tide on Basic White Cardstock, then die-cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies (order the bundle and save 10%!). I adhered the sentiment to a piece of the 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper, die-cut with the Painted Labels Dies. (Oh, did I mention that the Glimmer Paper was also from Susan?)

Since I don’t have the Cup of Tea Bundle yet, I used the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Seit with the Penned Flowers Dies to create the floral image at the bottom of the card. I stamped the flower in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Basic White Cardstock, then die-cut the image with the cordinating Penned Flowers Dies. I colored the flowers with Parakeet Party, Sweet Sorbet, and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends, and added them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks, Susan, for many of the products used here! You are so amazing – and I am a better demonstrator for your inspiration.

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

Thank You with Nature’s Prints

Thank You with Nature’s Prints

I am loving the Nature’s Prints Bundle from the 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. It’s part of the Sun Prints Suite that includes the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper (DSP), Fern 3D Embossing Folder, and the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set and Natural Prints Dies. If you purchase the stamp set and dies bundle, you’ll save 10% over the individual prices. If you decide you want the whole suite (DSP and folder as well as the stamp set and die bundle), you only need to enter one number for all four products, and you’ll get the bundle price with the suite as well. I ordered the entire suite, because it was too beautiful not to.

For this card, I only used the Nature’s Prints Bundle.

Sun Prints Suite, Nature's Prints, Stampin' Up!

This card was so simple and fun to create. First, I stamped the greenery two times in Parakeet Party Ink on a 3-3/4″ x 4-1/2″ piece of Basic White Cardstock. Using the largest circle in the Beautiful Shapes Dies, I die-cut the circle from a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White Cardstock. I embossed that piece with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. On a separate scrap of Basic White Cardstock, I stamped the sentiment, also in Parakeet Party. I die-cut that with the label in the Natural Prints Dies.

To put it together, I adhered the embossed layer to the stamped layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a piece of the gorgeous and sparkly Metallic Woven Ribbon in Parakeet Party behind the sentiment label and adhered it to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The card base is also Parakeet Party.

Usually I have a favorite new In Color. My favorite in the group that just retired was Misty Moonlight. Last year’s favorite was Polished Pink. Or maybe Pale Papaya. Or a three-way tie with those two and Fresh Freesia, although I do like the greens as well. This year is another tie between Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide. Although I do have favorites, I love all 10 of the current In Colors. They are all so beautiful and wonderful additions to our color palette.

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

Easy To Color Painted Poppies

Easy To Color Painted Poppies

Whenever a new Stampin’ Up! catalog comes out or when new products are added online, I tend to forget about everything else in my stamp room. My friend Liz sent me a picture of some gorgeous “not red” poppies, so I decided to break out my Painted Poppies Stamp Set that I haven’t used for awhile.

Stampin' Up!, Painted Poppies, Peaceful Moments

First, I stamped the poppies and leaves on Basic White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black memento Ink. I love to watercolor, but I know some people do not, so here’s an easy way to add color to open images that have coordinating dies.

I die-cut each of the three images using the coordinating Painted Labels Dies, which can be purchased separately. I used a separate piece of 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ card stock for each image (large poppy, small poppy, leaf). Then I laid the stencil I just created over its coordinating image and colored with Classic Stampin’ Ink and Blending Brushes. Easy! I used Calypso Coral for the larger poppy, Crushed Curry for the two smaller poppies, and the new and fabulous In Color Parakeet Party for the leaves. Before I added ink to the images, I tapped the brush a time or two on scrap paper, then started blending on the stencil first and then into the image. This kept me from having too many huge dollops of dark ink spots. Remember, you can always add more ink!

I learned a new splatter technique over the weekend, but I forgot to use it on this card. Instead, I used one of the “splatter” stamps – which I think is intended to fill in one of the images – to add random splotches of Crushed Curry to the card. All of the “splatters” are stamped off at least one time; some are stamped off two-three times.

The sentiment from the peaceful Moments Stamp Set is stamped in Calypso Coral Classic Ink.

Since I’m mailing this card, I wanted it to be as flat as possible, because I may add a surprise inside. So instead of embellishments, I added a thin layer of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the centers of the flowers, then placed the card face down into my box of Gilded Leafing. Using a Stamping Sponge, I rubbed the excess leafing off the panel, then added it to a Calypso Coral card base.

For one more touch, I used my Fine-tip Glue Pen to add a crystal effect to some of the leaves. They are very shiny and pretty – but be sure to let them dry before you touch them or lay something on top of them. (I learned this the hard way many years ago!)

I hope this easy way to color encourages you to order some of the stamps you may have been holding out on! Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

Nature’s Prints

Nature’s Prints

Are you loving the new Stampin’ Up!® catalog? I am, for sure! It’s one of the best we’ve had, with lots of styles for every taste.

I played around with the “Faux Porcelain” idea Sandy showed us last week, as well as the Nature’s Prints Bundle. This is part of the Sun Prints Suite, which includes the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set and Natural Prints Dies (purchase the bundle to save 10%), the Fern 3D Embossing Folder, and the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper (DSP). I ordered the entire suite, but I used the Pretty Prints DSP instead of the Sun Prints.

Sun Prints, Nature's Prints, Stampin' Up!

First, I inked the Fern Embossing Folder with Mossy Meadow Ink. I wasn’t sure where I was going with this technique; if I had had a plan, I would have used Evening Evergreen, but Mossy Meadow is ok.

Next, I ran a piece of Pearlescent Specialty Paper through the folder. I love the soft, pretty look. My Pearlescent layer is about 2-1/2″ x 4″, and I layered it to a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Pretty Prints DSP.

I stamped several images from the Nature’s Prints Stamp Set on Very Vanilla Cardstock using Blackberry Bliss and Evening Evergreen Ink, and Soft Succulent and Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Write Markers. I die-cut them with the coordinating Natural Prints Dies.

The label and two greenery pieces are die-cut from Soft Succulent Cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using Evening Evergreen Ink, and adhered the die-cut pieces behind it. I added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. And now I’m thinking I need some embellishments. I’m going to add either a few Opal Runds or Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels. (I think the Opal Rounds will win this one.)

The card base is Blackberry Bliss. I’m loving the Evening Evergreen/Blackberry Bliss color combination, don’t you?

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a lovely weekend, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmas, stepmoms, aunts, cousins, and other women who have helped raise families!

Deer on the Horizon

Deer on the Horizon

Welcome back to Stamping with Buffy, my friends! I want to show you some products from the January-June Mini Catalog today. I know what you’re thinking. The 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog launched this week. Why are you showing us “old” products? Well, partly because the Grassy Grove Bundle is carrying over to the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. And not just the products in the bundle, but the Grassy Grove Bundle is carrying over – with the 10% bundle price! The other reason is that half the bundle is new to me.

Here’s the “back story.” My parents’ house (well, since 2020, just my mom’s house) borders a woods. This was my dad’s dream forever, and I am so happy that he got to realize that dream for many years. There’s also an apple orchard along the side of the house. My dad also had a garden. So add it up – woods + garden + orchard = yep. You’ve got it. There were lots of deer in my parents’ yard over the years.

Before my dad got to the place in life where he needed 24/7 care, my mom always attended my Stampin’ Up!® events. In fact, she was a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator for awhile. Now that my niece has come to live with her, they’ve been attending my classes, and Mom fell in love with the Grassy Grove Stamp Set. She ordered the stamps but not the bundle. Since the bundle is carrying over, I decided to order the Grove Dies – but not the stamp set, since I knew I could borrow it from Mom any time. But I was looking forward to creating something with the dies over the weekend. Sadly, I realized I forgot to take a paper cutter with me to our mountain house. AAARRRGGGH! Mike offered to cut paper with his razor knife, but I decided I’d rather read all weekend than trust him to cut paper.

So – now that I’m home with my trusty paper cutter and other products, here’s the card I made with the Grove Dies.

Grove Dies, New Horizons, Stampin' Up!

How aweome is this? It reminds me so much of the deer in my parents’ yard! First, I die-cut the two deer and the trees using the Groves Dies and Basic Black Cardstock. I adhered the deer and trees die-cuts to a piece of the New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the January-June Mini Catalog. I am so in love with this paper. I’m so sorry it’s retiring at the end of June, because it is so gorgeous and works with so many products!

I added the die-cuts and DSP to Calypso Coral Cardstock and then to a Basic Black card base. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals for all the die-cuts so they would pop up a bit.

After being in the mountains for a few days, this is a perfect card for us. There are about six deer that hang out at a neighbor’s house, and when we walk Max at o’dark thirty in the morning, they are watching us. They have a place where they run from the safety of the houses to the base of the mountain – but somehow Max misses them every time. Is he ignoring them? I don’t think so. I think our Max is just looking for something to eat or pee on. Max is very focused in the mornings, and deer are not in that focus. It’s sad.

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

One of the things I love best about the bundle is that the dies coordinate with the gorgeous Hues of Happiness DSP. I die-cut the flowers and leaves from the DSP. I also die-cut the Basic White Border with the dies as well. The sentiment from the Happiness Abounds Stamp Set is stamped on Fresh Freesia Cardstock with Gorgeous Grape Classic Ink. I die-cut this with the super fun Beautiful Shapes Dies. (How did I miss these dies all year? Happily, they’re carrying over to the new catalog!)

This card makes me smile, because it feels like spring. We’re finally getting consistently warm weather here in Virginia! Mornings are a little chilly, but the days are warm, flowers are blooming, and trees are budding. It’s lovely!

Simple Stamping with Flowers of Friendship

Simple Stamping with Flowers of Friendship

Welcome back, my friends! Mike & I are in the mountains again. This is Apple Blossom Weekend in Winchester, so we usually head out of town to escape the madness. It’s a fun weekend, but after 60+ years, it’s lost its allure with us. It’s mostly a big party with out-of-towners, so you can see why we choose the peace and quiet of our mountain house! The only drawback is the internet here, which is horrible. BUT – tomorrow we’re having better internet installed, so it’s all good.

I have a #simplestamping card for you today. I didn’t realize it would be simple until I made it. I was looking for ways to “glam it up,” but decided to keep it simple.

This is another card I made for our team challenge this month. I borrowed the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set from Nadine, and this is what I did with it.

Flowers of Friendship, #simplestamping, Stampin' Up!

I stamped the flowers in Early Espresso Classic Ink and the leaves in Mossy Meadow on Crumb Cake Cardstock. Then I colored them with a Blender Pen and White Craft Ink. Simply squeeze the stamp pad to collect some ink in the lid, them pick up the ink with the Blender Pen. You can also use the White Craft Refill as well.

I colored the centers of the flowers with Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso. Before I adhered the Crumb Cake layer to the Mossy Meadow card base, I spritzed it with my Wink of Stella/alcohol mixture. In case you missed it, I took an empty Wink of Stella Glitter Pen apart and rinsed the barrel and tip with rubbing alcohol. I did this over a plastic cup so I wouldn’t lose any of the Stella or alcohol. Then I poured the mixture into a Stampin’ Spritzer. It’s perfect for adding just a little “glitz” to a project.

Just a reminder for you – there are only four more days until the launch of the new 2022-2023 Annual Stampin’ Up!® Catalog. I can’t wait! But in the meantime, there are lots of “last chance” products available at reduced prices. And don’t forget that the January-June Mini Catalog ends June 30, so grab the products you love from that catalog now!

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

Dragonfly Garden

Dragonfly Garden

Welcome back, my friends! I hope your week is going well! We are finishing up some ongoing projects around our house, so it’s a bit chaotic, but still good!

My card today uses an old – but awesome! – stamp set and punch, The challenge this month for our team of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators was to swap returning stamp sets with each other and create a card with the borrowed stamp set. I chose two sets, and one was the Dragonfly Garden Stamp set. This has been a favorite of mine since it first came out.

Dragonfly Garden, Stampin' Up!

I made three cards – one for the challenge, one for the demonstrator I swapped this stamp with, and one for me. All three are basically the same, but I used a different background technique with each. For this one, I randomly stamped the fill stamp for the flowers in the Color & Contour Stamp Set in different colors on a piece of Basic White Cardstock. I used Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral, Parakeet Party, and Tahitian Tide. I used my Stamparatus, and each time I inked the stamp, then spritzed it with a bit of water, then stamped. Then I moved the stamp and repeated the process. I also stamped the Basic White layer with some of the flowers and small dragonflies in Smoky Slate Classic Ink. I adhered this to an Orchid Oasis card base.

Next I stamped three dragonflies in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on another piece of Basic White Cardstock, then punched with the Dragonflies Punch. I colored the dragonflies with Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends, then added them to a piece of Vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I adhered the vellum to the stamped layer using Seal Adhesive behind the dragonflies. (Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide are new In Colors for 2022-2024, so they won’t show up in the supply list, since only Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators can order them right now.)

This card definitely needs some bling! I am going to add some rhinestones to the card, coloring them with the Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.

On Friday, I’ll show you another card I made for the challenge using the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set.

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