Work Smarter, Not Harder

Hey hey, y'all!  How's your week going?  For me, on the plus side, I finally finished my giant stitching project!  Woohoooooooooo!  I'm very excited, I need to get some better pictures of it.  On the minus side, I feel like I'm either coming down with something or else allergies are trying to kick my butt.  Things are a-bloomin' here, except the cherry tree in our yard which has yet to get with the program.  C'mon, TREE.

Anywha, I have a quick and cute card to share today and I definitely let the DSP do all the work here.

The Bloom Where You're Planted DSP is retiring soon and it was absolutely made for the challenge at Fusion!

I played with both sides of the challenge this time around.  For the inspo photo, I chose a paper with a white background but the plants reminded me of the plant in the lower right corner of the picture, and then I stuck to a neutral color for my sentiment strip.  Easy peasy!  Ornate Thanks is also retiring soon and I feel like I should have used it more.  Heck, I want to use ALLLLL my stamps more often ;)

Hope you have a great day, y'all!

SUO Challenges: Animal Kingdom

Salutations, stampers!  It is time for a new challenge at SUO Challenges!

Our theme this time is animals!  There are a lot of Stampin' Up! animal sets to choose from, so this will be fun!  Here's what I made:

This sweet little bunny is from Easter Friends, and I decided on the baby sentiment because one of my coworkers is pregnant, so this card is for her.  I used a piece of Hand-Penned DSP for a background panel and chose colors based on that--Blushing Bride, Pale Papaya, and Cinnamon Cider.  I absolutely adore Cinnamon Cider, time to stock up now before it retires.  The Stitched So Sweetly dies are also retiring, but you'd have to pry them out of my cold, dead hands to get me to quit using them ;)  Though I'm sure there will be fabulous new dies in the upcoming catalog.

Make your own animal card and share it with us at the SUO Challenges blog.  Have fun!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Easter Friends, Happy & Heartfelt
Ink:  Cinnamon Cider, Memento Tuxedo Black

The Biltmore

Scrappy Monday, y'all!  We went on a little trip this weekend to Cologne and Koblenz and I have a funny story to share :)  We had lunch in Koblenz yesterday and I went to the bathroom before we left.  I know you've seen public restrooms where the sink is motion-activated, but have you ever seen a sink like that where it's got the hand dryers on it too?  Like, the faucet sticks straight out over the sink and it's got these two wands on the sides sticking out like airplane wings.  Every sink has its own hand dryer, which sounds great on paper, but...I kept activating the hand dryer by accident while I was trying to wash off my hands.  Multiple times.  AND the sink didn't drain properly either, so the hand dryer sprayed water all over!  Happily (for me, at least) the hand dryers were angled in such a way that all the water got sprayed all over the mirror instead of me.  There were three little girls in the bathroom washing their hands at the same time and the looks on their faces were just priceless.  I got back to our table and laughed so hard I had tears streaming down my face and couldn't hardly even talk to tell the hubs and the spawn why I was laughing.

Anyway, today I have scrapbook layouts from another road trip, this one to the Biltmore outside of Asheville, North Carolina.

Aww, teensy weensy little Ryan!  He was just two and a half in these pictures and now he's FIVE.  Anyway, it was pretty hot the day we were at the Biltmore, which is one reason why I chose the deep orange Dusty Durango page base.  I paired it with the Country Club Simply Scrappin' Kit from ages ago.

The peacock feather pattern is also part of the same kit.  I used the Mosaic Madness stamp set and coordinating punch for page accents.

Today's color palette:  Dusty Durango, Cajun Craze, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron, and Whisper White.  I love Dusty Durango and Cajun Craze together :)

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Empire Alphabet Upper, Broadsheet Accents, Mosaic Madness
Ink:  Not Quite Navy

Triptych Sketch for the Paper Players

Happy Sunday, stampy friends!  It is time once again for a new challenge at the Paper Players!  Check out this week's sketch:

This sketch is a classic!  I decided to play with some patterned paper for my card, here's what I made:

Stitched Rectangles dies to the rescue!  I love the patterns in the Symbols of Fortune DSP, but I didn't get the coordinating Crane of Fortune bundle.  The three smaller rectangles were cut from the Symbols of Fortune DSP and then I decided they needed a darker backdrop, so I used the In Color DSP stack for the Evening Evergreen pattern.  The sentiment is once again heat embossed in white on dark cardstock, and then I used the Potted Succulents dies to cut it out (slightly crooked,'s a handmade card, so slightly crooked is to be expected).  A few gems under the sentiment and done!

Hope you enjoy the sketch as much as I did, don't forget to upload your card at the Paper Players blog!

Hippo Hooray

Hey hey, happy Friday!  I managed to get a couple of cards made yesterday on my day off so I have something to share today.

I went through the retiring list yesterday and thought I'd have some fun with retiring stamps for a while.  I almost never get rid of any stamps, once they're in my collection they stay there, but I know I tend to play with the new and current stuff more often.  It's still fun to play with my older stamps though.

These are triple challenge cards, starting with the Global Design Project theme:

I chose the rainbow paper first and the cute little hippo just seemed like a good match for it.  Next up is the Retro Rubber challenge:

I've had Hippo Happiness in my collection for a year and a half, so it counts as retro...not as retro as my Paris card since that stamp set is about 15 years old ;)  Speaking of that card, it was chosen as the winner for that challenge, thanks RRCB team!  I did try to contact you about being a guest designer for a future challenge but I didn't get a response.  My email has been a little funny lately.

Anyway, for today's cards I also used this week's Try Stamping on Tuesday challenge:

I did the card with the rainbows at the top first, and then thought maybe I should have put the pattern on the bottom so I decided to make another card.  I took the DSP left over from the first card and trimmed it...and then realized I'd automatically done 4" across instead of 4.25" like I had intended.  Oops!  Oh well.  So which do you like better, rainbows on top or rainbows on bottom?  Also this punny challenge solidified my choice to use the hippo, you know I love me a good pun :)

Anyway, I'd better get moving this morning.  Hubs and I are both off work so we're going to go explore a couple towns not too far from here over the weekend.  Cheers, y'all!

Hey, Good Lookin'

Hey y'all.  I have today off work (yay!) but I feel like I've been chasing my own tail today and not getting much done (boo).  Except laundry.  There's always laundry.

Anyway, I got a couple of new stamp sets today (woohoo!) and several sets of dies (more woohoo!).  It always amazes me when I see challenges that make me go whaaaaa? and I have no idea what to do and then somehow my brain kicks in and comes up with an idea.  That's pretty much what happened with this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

I looked at it yesterday and thought now what do I do with THAT.  I also took a peek at this week's Color Throwdown, you know how I like to combine these two challenges specifically:

And then I got the new stamp sets this morning and this happened:

Yeah, I got both What's Cookin' and Tulip Fields the day after the retiring list was published, and neither of them will be in the next annual catalog.  Oh well, my stamp collection is vast and I almost never get rid of stamp sets because I never know when one will come in useful for a scrapbook layout.  Anyway, What's Cookin' definitely came in useful today with all those long skinny shapes on the cooking implements!  Admittedly I think I should have used Old Olive instead of Just Jade for the card base, Old Olive would have matched the color swatch better, but I grabbed the Jade because I love it and it's another color in the Expressions in Ink DSP, which I am also using for the very first time today.  Oh yeah, I used Pale Papaya (paler than the orange in the color swatch), Just Jade, and Crumb Cake with some Early Espresso for contrast.  If you can't see it, I used a Stampin' Blend to color in the stamped images with Crumb Cake to hit all the challenge colors.  I like the splattery DSP with this because that's pretty much what my kitchen looks like every time I cook.

Okay, the washer's about to finish another load and I have a list of things I need to get done today.  Cheers, peeps!

Flamingo & Freesia

Mornin' y'all!  I have one more card to share for the Paper Players challenge:

I enjoyed this challenge ;) and I have lots and lots of flower stamps.  So here was the second card I made:

I stamped the large flower in Flirty Flamingo and fussy cut it, and then gave it a setting of Fresh Freesia smaller blooms.  I think this one counts as more CAS than yesterday's card (which I kinda consider CAS-plus), but the blue sunflower card has more white space...well, blue space ;)

Hope you have a fabulous day today, peeps!

Go With the Flow?

Mornin' y'all! How is your week going so far?  We had GORGEOUS weather yesterday and yeah, I was at work all day, but we had the door open and I got to enjoy the breeze while I worked on frames.  And then I spent an hour sitting outside after work, it was great :)

I mentioned on Sunday that I had made no fewer than THREE cards for the Paper Players challenge:

And here is the first one I made:

After I made it, I worried that it wasn't CAS enough.  Yeah, it's a simple design, but it's got some layers on it and maybe not enough white space to be strictly CAS, which is why I made other cards ;)  I like this one though, I made it just as an excuse to play with Fresh Freesia, which I paired with Flirty Flamingo and a bit of Pear Pizzazz sponging on the background.

Hope your day is simply wonderful!

Just Ducky

Scrappy Monday, y'all!  I've got a springy layout for today.

These pics are from April of 2019 I believe.  Our next door neighbors in North Carolina had hatched some duck eggs and then the ducks just stuck around after they were grown up (there was a long, skinny pond stretching the length of our block behind our houses, so I imagine that was a nice place to live for some semi-tame ducks) so we used to have fun feeding them occasionally.  Ryan fed them frozen corn often enough that they'd come waddling in our direction anytime he came out of the house :) 

For the layout, I was quite pleased to find a stripey pattern that pretty closely matched the shirt Ryan was wearing in the pictures.  Score one for my ridiculously enormous collection of patterned paper!

Today's color palette:  So Saffron, Rose Red, Bashful Blue, Brilliant Blue, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White.

Have a great week, ducklings!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Layered Letters Alphabet, Calendar Alphabet & Numbers, Beyond the Basics

Paper Players: CAS Blooms

Good morning and happy Sunday, stampers!  It is time once again for a new Paper Players challenge and I think you'll like it:

I don't know about you, but I have a lot of flower stamps to choose from ;) In fact, I made three cards for this challenge; I'll share the other two later this week but here's the one I ultimately chose for the DT:

I'm sure you've seen many blue and yellow sunflower card designs lately; I was perusing my stamps for this challenge and happened to see the image from Provencal and had to use it.  Both Provencal and Hope Happens are long-retired, but I just got Provencal a couple of months ago so this is the first time I've ever used it.  The hope sentiment just felt appropriate.  We know people who are hosting (or soon will be) Ukrainian refugees in their homes.

I hope you'll upload your own CAS creation on the Paper Players blog, can't wait to see what you make!

Supplies, all SU! (some retired)
Stamps:  Provencal, Hope Happens
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Pacific Point

You Spin Me Right Round, Baby

Saturday surprise!  I had one more challenge that I wanted to participate in, so bonus card for this week :) And I inked up another new stamp set!

I paired up For the Record with the Abstract Beauty DSP stack and I'm 100% sure this record is fabulous music from the 80s :)  Probably the Bangles.  Check out the Try Stamping on Tuesday sketch:

I spent a long time searching through my embossing powders because the black powder was hiding.  I finally found it and then decided to do the shimmery black powder instead and I love how that turned out, look at this:

SU! only had the shimmery white and black embossing powders for one year I think, and they were *awesome*.  I still have a few containers of Iridescent Ice embossing powder too, loved that.

I thought about putting the sentiment on the front, but decided I couldn't cover up that glittery record, so I stamped the inside instead.

We had a couple of rainy days this week, but today is just beautiful weather so we're going to get out and enjoy it.  Cheers!

I'll Bee Missing You

Hey y'all, we made it to another Friday!  I must admit I've been preoccupied with my stitching project of late because I'm on the last page of it, but I did make a couple of cards yesterday because I still have to take breaks from stitching occasionally :)  So here's the first card I made.

Check out this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

I thought of the rectangular postage stamp punch as soon as I saw it, and bees came to mind when I saw this week's Color Throwdown:

I admit I was not thrilled with this palette--I read the colors as all neutrals, but the challenge write-up called the second color yellow and that made it work better for me.  I don't like the all-neutral challenges.  I used Smoky Slate (really the patterned paper has Basic Gray on it), So Saffron, Crumb Cake (what, you don't see it?  That's what I used for the bees' legs), and Memento Tuxedo Black.

That's it for me today, cheers peeps!

Stamped Tulips

Happy Saint Patrick's Day, peeps!  Got your green on?  I mentioned yesterday that I made two cards for the Global Design Project sketch; I had to keep this one for today so it wouldn't get pinched:

I adore Just Jade, don't you?  It's retiring soon and I'm already sad about it.  Today's color combination is courtesy of the Inspire. Create challenge:

And here's the Global Design Project sketch once again:

Okay, now I've got to call someone on the phone and make an appointment for Ryan (I *haaaaate* calling people on the phone, and to add to the difficulty I don't speak German...) and then I'm going to go do something fun.  Cheers, y'all!

Died Tulips

Afternoon, y'all!  I had to be at work early this morning so I didn't get a chance to write my blog post before now, but I do have a die-tastic card to share today.

This is actually the second of two cards I made with this week's Global Design Project sketch:

I made my card landscape orientation rather than portrait just so I could show more of the tulips die.  This card is already out in the mail even--mailed it out today to some friends that could use a bit of paper sunshine.  I cut out the tulips from Daffodil Delight cardstock and then mulled around for a while wondering what to use for the other colors on my card, and finally landed on Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point.  What do you think?  I was going for sunny :)  The tulip line is popped up on Dimensionals and I'm tickled with how that turned out.

Looks like I've got just a bit of time to myself this afternoon before Ryan gets home, so I'm going to either go work in my craft room or else watch this week's NCIS and do my stitching.  Either way I'm happy!  Cheers, y'all!

SUO Challenges: Plants & Gardening

Gooooood morning friends!  How are you doing today?  Ready for another challenge from SUO Challenges?

Our theme this time around is plants and gardening.  I have lots (LOTS) of flower sets that I could have used, but instead, I pulled out some DSP and made this:

I fussy-cut five house plants out of the Bloom Where You're Planted DSP, and then added a sentiment (embossed in white, because that is my current thing) from Enjoy the Moment.  I do so love Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider and they're retiring soon, don't forget to stock up on the retiring In Colors now.  Right after you play along with our challenge, of course ;)  Upload your paper garden at the SUO Challenges blog.

Deal Castle

Scrappy Monday, y'all! I got home from Paris last night, it was a fun trip.  My friend Krissy and I visited the Musée d'Orsay, took the metro everywhere and saw Sacré Cœur, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Eiffel Tower, plus did some shopping, eating, and met some Parisian pooches.  Fun!

Now for today's scrapbook layout.

You can see the original pics here.  Deal Castle was the last one we visited in Kent, and that pic on the bottom right is from Lullingstone Roman Villa--the only pic we took there, but it inspired me to use that tile patterned DSP on here and I love it.

Today's color palette includes Coastal Cabana, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Garden Green, Basic Gray, and Whisper White.  I was surprised how well those colors went together for this!

Cheers, y'all!

Spring Colors for the Paper Players

Springtime greetings, stamping friends!  Is it beginning to warm up where you are?  We've had some beautiful sunny weather of late but it's still a bit chilly.  Happily I have a sunny color challenge from the Paper Players to warm up my craft room!

I admit, anytime there's a color challenge featuring any shade of green, my brain immediately yells FLOWERS but I'm stubborn so frequently I try to make something different :)  I still have several new stamp sets that I haven't inked up yet, so I chose one of them and made this:

Ryan's very favorite stuffed animal/companion is a stuffed duckling named Peking (yes, Peking Duck); if you've seen any of my scrapbook layouts of Ryan then you've likely seen Peking as well.  Given that, I couldn't resist the Easter Friends stamp set from the mini catalog and this happy little duckling!  I inked up the stamp with Versamark and Cinnamon Cider, then stamped on Basic White and embossed with clear embossing powder.  That allowed me to watercolor without smudging the lines.  When I stuck everything down on the card, I think I rotated Peking's circle a bit and now it looks like he's waddling down a hill but I like it like that :)

Hope you enjoy playing with these colors as much as I did.  Don't forget to upload your card on the Paper Players blog!

Vespa Chic

Mornin' y'all!  Guess what?  I'm leaving for PARIS today!  I'm going just for the weekend with a friend, and I have an oh-so-appropriate card to share:

I pulled out the long, long-retired Paris in the Spring stamp set to make this, and I'll be entering it at Retro Rubber:

I decided to do the top row, with watercoloring being my choice for the middle block, and if you count the itsy-bitsy dots on the patterned paper as confetti then I did the center column too.  I've had Paris in the Spring since at least 2007, so 15 years--I think that counts as retro!

I also used the sketch from Fusion:

And that's all she wrote for today.  Au revoir, mes amis!

Pointed Remark

Mornin', y'all!  How's it going today?  I did spend time in my craft room yesterday, but I only made two cards before I went back to stitching instead.  I'm down to the very last page on my current (giant) stitching project and I just want to be DONE with it.  So here's one of the cards I made.

I was going to put a thin mat of Polished Pink around the main image panel which is when I noticed that the rectangle isn't plum--it's turning into a parallelogram!  The die didn't look warped but the shape it cut out definitely is.  I'm chalking it up to the charms of handmade paper crafts :)  Also, I put two flowers on top of my cactus because it reminds me of the pompoms on a winter hat my hubs bought me.

I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

And the Color Throwdown:

I used Smoky Slate, Polished Pink, and Granny Apple Green for my colors.

Gotta get my workout done and get ready to go for the day.  Cheers!

Wonderful Honeybee

Hey hey, y'all!  I thought I would be working today but instead I have an unexpected day off.  My plans for the day include watching the latest episode of NCIS while I stitch, and then heading upstairs to work in my craft room.  And of course laundry ;)

But first, here's one of the cards I made on Monday!

This is the maiden voyage for the Honeybee Home suite at my house, what do you think?  This is another card that I had to take 4-5 pictures before I got a semi-good one.  You can't tell but I veeeeery lightly colored the bee's wings with Pool Party and added some Wink of Stella on top. 

This is a triple challenge card, starting with The Card Concept:

While I do like the inspiration pic, I decided to only use the colors for my card today:  Garden Green, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Early Espresso.  My card is in the clean & layered style, which I think is my home base :)  I paired that with the sketch from Sunday Stamps:

And last up is the Festive Friday challenge:

From the list, I used flowers/plants, green, and bugs/insects.  Would "stay wonderful" count as an encouragement?

Okay, I'm going to go get started on all my crafty things :) I plan to enjoy my unexpected day off.  Hope you have a great day too!
