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:

Throw Back Thursday – Halloween Style

Hi!  Today I am showcasing a treat pouch made using some retired Halloween Products.  I am working on some goodies for a craft fair and decided it would be good to use up some retired Designer Series Paper I had laying around.

Diaper Fold, Halloween Treat Pouch, Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up! SU!

These little guys are from the Cookie Cutter Halloween Set from a year or two ago.  I loved this set – they are just adorable.  The diaper fold pouch uses a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper and is pretty easy to put together.  These little guys will hold a mini candy bar – perfect for giving coworkers, friends and neighbors.

Here’s a closer look:

Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up!, Treat Pouch

I’ll be updating this pouch to current product on Sept 10th’s Facebook Live – where I’ll also show you how to make it!  Hope you’ll join me at 7:30pm EST over here.

I hope you enjoyed today’s little Throwback post.

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!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how this turned out!   The leaves are stamped in Versamark on Basic Black card stock and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  Watercolor Pencils are used to color the leaves – they are so vibrant on the Black cardstock.

Lastly, I die cut the little swirls from Gold Foil paper to attach to the back of he sentiment frame.

The Basic Black stamped panel measures 4 x 5 1/4″ and is mounted on a piece of Gold Foil paper that measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8″.  The base is Basic Black card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half.

A FALL Eclipse

Hi!  We have moved into Fall here in New England and the temperatures are definitely more seasonal.  This is  a card we did at a September workshop – such a fun technique and a great way to celebrate fall.

If you haven’t tried the Eclipse technique, I did give some directions in this post.

My colors for this card:  Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso for the flowers.  The leaves  are Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.  The copper ribbon was the perfect accent for this card.

Since there aren’t two “L”‘s in the Large Letter Framelit set, I used an “E” to get my spacing then removed it before running through the Big Shot with FAL.   I then moved the L and ran through again to get the last “L” in the word.

It’s a new month and a New Year in the Stampin’ Up! world, so we are kicking it off with not 1 but 2 awesome sales!!

First, get ready for World Card Making Day with these special offers!

 

Second, Designer Series Paper Special!!

Such great deals!!  Don’t miss out!!  Use Hostess Code 6HMNXWKG when ordering before October 10, I’ll send you a FREE Embellishment of my choosing!

Love Fall?

Hi! Today I am hopping with the Stamp It! Group for a Halloween/Fall themed hop!

I came across this fun and easy fold and thought I’d share it with you today for my fall card.

Lovely as a Tree, StampItHop, Fall, Painted Autumn, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I used Lovely as a Tree for my center panel giving it fall colors.  I colored directly with markers on the stamp, then used a blender pen and ink to fill in the trunk and grass.  The birds are hand drawn with a marker.   I sponged a bit of Soft Sky around the tree.   The sentiment is from One Big Meaning.  I colored the Thank You with the Cajun Craze marker so that I could omit the other words on the stamp.  The acorns are from Painted Harvest and stamped in Crumb Cake for the nut and Early Espresso for the top.

The Designer Paper on the outside is from the Painted Autumn Designer Series pack.  The inside panels are from the Wood Textures Designer Series stack.

So, how do you make the card.  Here are the directions:

  1. Base: 4 1/4″ x 8″ – score at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 5 1/2″ and 6 3/4″
  2. Fold down on the 1 1/4″ and 6 3/4″ score lines and up on the other two.
  3. Designer Series Paper Panels measure 1″ x 4″.
  4. The center image panel is 2 1/2 x 3 3/4.  The Cajun Craze mat is 2 3/4 x 4″.
  5. The sentiment panel is 1″ x 5 1/4″. The Early Espresso mat is 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  6. To attach the bridge, lay the card so it is folded on the left hand side but flat on the right hand side.  See picture below.
  7. Apply Tear & Tape to just the two ends of the bridge so that the card can move and stand upright.
  8. The size of the card allows for mailing in our standard card envelopes.

I hope you like my card!
