You Dazzle Me Healing Hugs Card

After making my Healing Hugs card that I gave to my father-in-law (the one I shared on May 11), I decided that this layout would work for cards that I needed to make for some achieving members of my Stampers With ART group. I kept the same layout, changed up just the base color, and used a sentiment from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set.

I love how this sentiment ties in so well with the Glitter Enamel Dots.

You’ll be able to access measurements, directions, and links to the products I used. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I think the Crumb Cake card base is more cheerful, too. I wish I would’ve used it on Fred’s card. By the way, Fred is hanging in there. We don’t have answers for everything, he is not back to normal yet and needing oxygen and meds to keep him stable, but he is at home. So I’m positive your prayers are helping. Thank you.

Below are directions, measurements and supplies if you wish to recreate this card above. (I basically copied and pasted from the May 11th post. But this way you won’t need to go back and forth if you want to sit down to make this.)

Products I used… See below for a list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements…

    • Crumb Cake Cardstock
      • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
    • Tranquil Tide Cardstock
      • 4-1/2” x 2-1/4”

      • 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside layer
    • Nature’s Poem Designer Paper
      • 4″ x 3″

Directions…

    • Stamp the sentiment in the upper left corner of the Whisper White Cardstock piece. Stamp the flower in Melon Mambo ink in the lower right. Then stamp the leaf images with Crumb Cake ink coming from the flower & to fill in/balance.
    • Adhere the Nature’s Poem Designer Paper to the front of the card base piece left justified. Adhere the Whisper White to the Tranquil Tide. Then add that right justified to the front of the card base using Dimensionals to lift it a bit.

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Did you know that the Aqua Painters are awesome for sealing envelopes?! I remember using this tool for envelopes a couple years ago. But I forgot about this idea until my friend Vicki mentioned it to me again one day when she was over helping me. So now when I have a ton of envelopes to seal up, I grab my Aqua Painter (which I keep filled), squeeze it to release a bit of water, wipe across the adhesive area of the envelope flaps, and seal ‘er shut. 😉

Needing Prayers For My Father-In-Law

My father-in-law, Fred is in need of prayers and well wishes. I don’t want to share details because it’s not my place to do so. He IS home and stable right now. Tests are revealing some information yet there are many questions still unanswered. I’m hoping that by letting you know, you’ll be aware in case I have lapses in posts. Plus I really believe in the power of prayer. The more positive energy sent Fred’s way, the better. ❤️

I made this card from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set, Glitter Enamel Dots, and Nature’s Poem Designer Paper. I think it’s the perfect card to send to Papa. So we’ll put our notes inside and get it out in the mail today.

A simple way to decorate Easter Eggs

I realize Easter has come and gone, but I want to share with you what I ended up doing to decorate our eggs.

My boys had a friend over the Saturday before Easter. So they weren’t in the mood to color eggs. I already had boiled eggs and really wanted to keep the tradition going. But I didn’t want to push the issue. So I decided to decorate the eggs myself.

Rather than dragging out all the food coloring materials though, I grabbed my Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers that were in my “retiring products” pile in my craft room and started sticking them on. It was a super fast, super simple solution.

Decorate next year’s Easter eggs with the Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers. But you need to purchase them now before they retire. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And yes, these stickers are retiring. So if you enjoyed this super simple way of decorating eggs, be sure to get this product by June 3 (or while supplies last).

Best Catch in a Country Floral Lake

My boys have a vacation from school March 8-17. So to start off their Spring Break, I brought them 4 hours up north to my parents’ place. Isn’t this view of the frozen lake from their living room amazing?!

Early March 2019 Spring Break fun at the cabin! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We left for the lake Thursday and are heading back home this evening. But we’ve had a wonderful time: waffles with whipped cream and berries,…

Early March 2019 Spring Break fun at the cabin! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

…trips into town for snacks, sleeping in the bunk bed room, watching movies, and of course outdoor fun! I know many of us in Minnesota are getting tired of the incredible amounts of snow we’ve gotten this year. (I feel sorry for those that don’t own a snow blower.) But my boys and I have loved all the sledding we’ve been able to do. And we we were in heaven at the cabin because the snow banks were high, the temps were super comfortable, and the long steep hill (their driveway in) was perfect!

Early March 2019 Spring Break fun at the cabin! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

My brother and his family were also up at the cabin. 4-1/2″ year-old cousin Yvette is always a ton of giggles and fun. And she “worships” her older cousins who adore her greatly.

The project I have to share with you today is the perfect cabin/lake card. I created it with the Best Catch Stamp Set, Catch of the Day Thinlits, and the Country Floral Embossing Folder (a free Sale-a-Bration Level one pick). I didn’t even intend for it to end up this way. I was going to use the floral embossed background to create an all floral card. But then my already colored-in fisherman fell on top of the Mint Macaron section while I was moving things around in my work space, and it looked like he was fly fishing on a misty morning! I added the fish and the “water droplets” above, and the rest of the layers came easily. I really love how it turned out.

The Country Floral Embossing Folder that just debuted on February 15, 2019 as a new Sale-a-Bration Level 1 free pick has been stunning on so many cards and projects! I used it on the front of this fishing card that I created with the Best Catch stamp set and Catch of the Day Thinlits. Click here to learn more and get the details for recreating this card! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements…

  • Mint Macaron Cardstock:
    • 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for the card base
  • Soft Suede Cardstock:
    • Two pieces that are 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″
    • Scrap for punching out 2″ Circle piece
  • Delightfully Detailed Mint Macaron Note Card Front:
    • 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting fisherman and fish pieces
    • 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
    • Scrap for punching out 1-3/4″ Circle piece

Products I Used…  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions…

  • Emboss the Delightfully Detailed Mint Macaron Note Card piece. Then lightly sand it with sandpaper to expose the white core on a few of the raised floral areas.
  • Stamp the sentiment, then punch it out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch so the words are far off to the left. Attach this piece to the Soft Suede 2″ Circle. Then attach this to the embossed layer, and trim off the excess.
  • Add the Soft Suede 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″ layers on the front and inside. Add the embossed layer to the front of the card.
  • Stamp the fly on the 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ Whisper White. Stamp the fish and the fisherman onto the Whisper White scraps. Use Blends to color in the images.
  • Die cut the fisherman and the fish.
  • Add the 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ Whisper White to the inside of the card.
  • Add the fisherman and the fish (on Dimensionals) to the front of the card.
  • Embellish with Clear Epoxy Droplets.

Celebrating Maui!

Can I scream out how excited I am!?! 🤪During this past week as my helpers and I prepped and packaged 56 sets of product shares (finishing them up a full week ahead of schedule!), I watched my points get closer and closer. And as of yesterday around noon, just hours after setting out the completed shares for USPS to pick up, it became official… I earned my 14th Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip!!!

Timmy, we’re going to Maui!!!

I earned my next trip in 3 months and 11 days! Yay!!! I’m taking my hubby to Maui! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I haven’t even finalized the reservations for my July 2019 Greek Isles incentive trip that my sister is attending with me. So I’m sure you believe me when I tell you I was jumping up and down for joy to have earned this trip in just 3 months & 11 days (a little over 8-1/2 months early!).

I REALLY LOVE being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. Thank you to ALL of you who support what I do in some way…A huge thanks to my Stampers With ART stars, my customers, my club members, my fellow demonstrator friends, Stampin’ Up! employees, my business partners, my assistants, my social media followers/subscribers, and my dear friends and family.

I’ve been working non-stop this past week getting those shares ready. I expedited the products from Stampin’ Up!, had 2 assistants (Patty and Vicki) helping me on 4 different days, AND roped in my husband (the one I call Timmy when I’m excited and happy) and my boys (Nick and Luke) to help me put everything in the boxes and envelopes on Thursday night. So finding out that next day that I earned Maui was a fabulous way to celebrate the completion of the shares.

This is what those packages (84 pounds worth!) waiting for my postal carrier to pick up looked like.

Product shares went out a week earlier than planned thanks to all my helpers! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com\

My upline, Susan Campfield is just one of the many supportive people in my life. She is one of my biggest cheerleaders, and I’m so grateful I purchased the Stampin’ Up!® Starter Kit through her 19 years ago.

Just recently she gave me this pretty card featuring the Lovely Floral embossing folder and new products from the Gingham Gala Suite: the Butterfly Gala stamp set, the Gingham Gala designer paper, and the Highland Heather Organdy Ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Sale-a-Bration Combo Pack. (A brief supply list is below.)

I want to say she sent it to me along with some die-cut pieces that didn’t have and needed. Yes,…I needed product and SHE sent ME a card. It’s supposed to be reversed. In fact, I think I still need to send her a thank you card!

Last Minute Simple Gift

My Grandma Tessman used to make us beautiful gifts for Christmas. She would make “suvvy” tricot blankets, embroidered pillow cases, nightgowns (with matching ones for our dolls), and more. She eventually had 15 grandchildren, though. So can you imagine all the time she put into those gifts!? She probably worked on them year-round! Eventually there was a time when she had to do away with sewing elaborate gifts for each of her grandchildren. I can’t remember if that was when I was in high school or in college. But she still made Christmas grand. She would hang envelopes all over the tree with money in them. We each had one on the tree with our name on it.

This quick and simple gift packaging idea I have for you tonight made reminded me of her. AND you can hang these on the tree with money and/or treats inside. Make a few, and watch the smiles as everyone finds these special ornaments at Christmas.

Here is a quick and simple gift package that you can make in no time and hang on the Christmas tree! Fill these with money and/or treats. Then watch the smiles as everyone finds these special ornaments during Christmas. Products used: Christmas Traditions Punch Box and Corrugated Embossing Folder #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Early Espresso Cardstock: Scrap for stamping and punching sentiment
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Scrap for punching 1-1/2″ Circle
  • Silver Baker’s Twine: 10″

Directions

  • Emboss the Crumb Cake Cardstock (optional), then add Tear & Tape Adhesive along a short edge and along a long edge.

Products used: Christmas Traditions Punch Box and Corrugated Embossing Folder #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Tear off the backing on the Tear & Tape, then connect the two short ends to make a tube.

  • Then staple the middle of the twine to that closed end. Connect the ends of the twine (adjust if needed), and make an overhand knot to tie it shut and form the loop for hanging this on the Christmas Tree.
  • Add the candy, treats and/or money through the open end. Then staple that end shut so it closes the opposite way as the top end.

  • Stamp the sentiment image onto the Whisper White scrap. Then punch it out.
  • Punch the 1-1/2″ Early Espresso Circle, and layer the Whisper White piece onto this.
  • Add the layered sentiment piece to the “ornament” using a Dimensional.
  • Then add a rhinestone to give it a little more sparkle.

You can personalize each one by either writing the recipient’s name on the bottom or back. Or you could punch another white piece (unstamped), and attach it to the back of the Early Espresso circle before putting that sentiment layer onto the ornament. That way you’d have a small white space for writing.
