A Taste of Country

Hi! Today I am happy to share the card from this past week’s Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live!  It features the Country Home stamp set and coordinating products from the Holiday Catalog.

Country Home, Tin Tile Embossing Folder, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Fall

I love this suite in the catalog – it is just perfect for fall!  I colored the jug and flowers using Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen for a soft look.

I also LOVE the detail of the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder – especially on the Galvanized Metal sheet.  It is simply stunning!

Here’s the video for the card:

Toil & Trouble

Fun with the Cauldron Bubble bundle and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper!

Halloween Treats, Cauldron Bubble, Toil & Trouble DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This past week’s Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live featured the Cauldron Bubble bundle and coordinating Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper to make these fun Diaper Fold treat pouches!

To make the holder, you need a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper!  And then you can embellish any way you choose!  I used the coordinating Cauldron Bubble Stamp set and dies to make these.  Did you know, the dies cut some of the images perfectly from the Designer Series Paper as well as the stamped images?  How cool is that!

Here’s the video showcasing this fold:

Inky the Octopus

Hi!  Back today with the card that was demonstrated this past week on Tuesday with Teresa – my weekly Facebook Live demonstration.  This one features the Sea of Textures stamp set:

Octopus, Sea of Texture, Stampin' Up!, Masking

I used my big Post-It Notes to mask off the top and bottom of my Whisper White layer and sponge just the center with Mint Macaron and Coastal Cabana ink.  The seaweed and coral were stamped in Tranquil Tide ink.

The octopus is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink and die cut with the coordinating framelit.  He is attached to the card using dimensionals.  A quick and cute card for your Saturday morning.

Here’s the video in case you’d like more details:

I’m in Love!

Hi! I am back today with one more card featuring the Touches of Texture Stamp Set and I AM IN LOVE!!!   I loved it so much, I made 6 of them!

Touches of Texture, Subtle, Fall, Note Cards, Stampin' Up!, SU!

In the last two posts featuring this set, I showed how to use the stamps to color the flowers.  In this set, I used a Blender Pen and ink pads to color them and love the soft look this gave the flowers:

Fall, Flowers, Touches of Texture, Subtly DEF, Stampin' Up!, SU!

To me, it looks like I painted the flowers.   I chose to go back to the first card’s background for this one and add the flecking using a Crumb Cake marker and then running the piece through the Big Shot with the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder.

To finish it off, I used two strips of Designer Series Paper from the Country Lane DSP Pack (this will be available tomorrow when the Holiday Catalog goes live!)    A 1/4″ strip of Blackberry Bliss runs across the top of the 2 layers of Designer Series Paper.

Here’s the card in full detail:

Fall Flowers, Touches of Texture, Flecking, Subtle EF, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I think this is such a pretty note card set.  I could easily add a sentiment if need be, but I thought a set of note cards that could be used for anything would be best.

What do you think?  Do you love it as much as I do?  I don’t typically make multiples of a card – so you can tell how much I loved this one that I went and made six!

Stay tuned – tomorrow the Holiday Catalog goes LIVE!!  And, you can now redeem those Bonus Day coupons you earned last month!

Stamp It – Fall Blog Hop

Hi! Today I am happy to be back hopping with my fellow Team Stamp It demonstrators!!  You will find lots of great ideas to help you get ready for Fall!

Today’s card is brought to you by the Touches of Texture stamp set!

Fall Flowers, Hello, Stamp It Blog Hop, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Touches of Texture

This set is so fun to play with!  I showcased another card with this set in this post.

I stamped the flowers in Soft Suede ink and then used the large splatter stamp inked in Crushed Curry over that.   I then used the smallest splatter to add color to the flowers in Cajun Craze, Real Red, and Blackberry Bliss.

The Designer Series Paper is from the upcoming Holiday Catalog that debuts on Sept 5.  It is called Country Lane and will be a must have for your Fall projects.

The Base of this card is Soft Suede measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half.  The Very Vanilla layer measures 4 x 5 1/4″.

The sentiment is from the Banners for You Set stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink on Crushed Curry cardstock and die cut.   The final touch to the card is the linen thread which is wrapped around twice before being tied into a bow.

If you’d like to watch a video – the second card in this one shows how I made the card:

A Touch of Fall

Hi!  I am back today with one of the cards demonstrated on last night’s Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live!

Flowers, Touches of Texture, Subtle, Fall, Stamipn' Up!, SU!

I am in mood for fall – as these last few days we’ve been under a heat index warning with temps in the 90’s and “feels like” nearing 100.   So, here is my take on a fall card using the Touches of Texture stamp set.

Do you see the pop of texture on the Vanilla card stock?  That is the Subtle Embossing Folder!  Isn’t it gorgeous?  I LOVE it!! It was hard to tell in the catalog what the result would be – so now you know!!    You can order yours in my store here.

Here is the video from last night:

The dimensions for the card stock:

Base: Soft Suede – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and folded

Very Vanilla – 4″ x 5 1/4″

Sentiment Banner – Very Vanilla – 3/4″ x 2 3/4″, Soft Suede 7/8″ x 2 7/8″

I think I’m going to make a few more of these as I love how they turned out!

Ok, a few more days left for the Blended Seasons bundle and Watercolor Pencil Assortment #2 pack.   Don’t miss out!!

And – just 2 days left of the Bonus Days!!  There is still time for you to earn a $5 coupon with a $50 purchase! (US, prior to S/H and tax).

I Hear

Wedding Bells!  I saw a card by Lori Mueller using the bell in the Blended Seasons bundle as a wedding bell and thought “Genius!”    I love how versatile this bundle has turned out to be!  If you haven’t gotten it yet – now is the time as this bundle is only available until August 31st.  Order HERE!

Ok, so here is my wedding card:

Wedding, Blended Seasons, Stampin' Up!, SU!

What do you think?  For the bell, I colored with Stampin’ Blends Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight.   The Designer Series Paper on the left is from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.

I love the front cut on this card.  I started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″ and then trimmed off 3″ from the front.  I turned this piece sideways and used it for a front flap.  Very cute, right?

The Basic Black mats measure 2 1/4″ x 4″ for the mat beneath the Designer Series Paper and 2 3/4″ x 4″ for the front flap.  The Designer Series Paper measures 2″ x 3 3/4″ and the Whisper White panel measures 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″.

I did include a piece of Whisper White for the inside of the card – this measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.  It helps frame the front panel as well.

Just a reminder that August 31 is also the last day to get your Watercolor Pencils Assortment #2.  You’ll find those here.

And, finally, August 31 also marks the end of the Bonus Day Coupon earning period.  For every $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) you spend, you get a $5 coupon to redeem in September.  There is NO LIMIT to the number of coupons you can earn!!
