A Cart of Pumpkins

Hi!  What did you think of yesterday’s Thanksgiving Theme Blog Hop?  I hope you had fun checking out all the great projects!   Today I am continuing on with fall cards – this one featuring the Pleasant Pheasants stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.

Fall, Pumpkins, Pleasant Pheasants, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2018HolidayCatalog

I actually demonstrated how to make this card on Tuesday’s Facebook Live – Tuesday with Teresa.  Here’s the video – it is the second card.

The measurements for each of the pieces:

Base: Thick Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ – score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half.

Early Espresso: 5 5/16 x 4 1/16″

Designer Series Paper: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″

Early Espresso:  3 3/16″ x 4 3/16″

Whisper White: 3″ x 4″

The image was colored using ink pads and a blender pen.  The background was done using the Saran Wrap technique.  (Hard to see in the picture – better view in the video).

On the original card, I also distressed the edges of the stamped panel with my fingernail – but forgot to do that in the video.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card!  Have a wonderful day!

A Little Bouquet

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well!  Today I have a little bouquet of flowers for you featuring the Wishing You Well stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.

Just a Note, Flowers, Wishing You Well, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2018HolidayCatalog

I am still in a Fall frame of mind and used the colors of fall for my palette for my card.  I used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze.   The card has a fun front look as I cut out  a section of the front so you can see the inside panel of the card.  Here are the dimensions:

Base – 4 1/4 x 11″.  Score at 5 1/2″.  Cut at 2″ from the score line for the top part of the front.   From the part cut off, cut 2″ piece for the bottom.

Designer Series Paper:  1 3/4″ x 4″ – need 2 pieces

Flower panel: Whisper White – 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  Cajun Craze Mat – 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.

Here is the video with a demonstration on making this card:

It is a new Stampin’ Up! year and this year I am working hard to earn the trip to Maui!

Breathe in Fall

Hi!  Today I have a card for you that I demonstrated at last week’s Tuesday with Teresa.  I had a hard time coming up with a focal image prior to going live that night – but finally came up with this card:

Fall, Rooted in Nature, Direct to Paper, FB Live, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I used the direct to paper technique to create my background.  Then used markers to color the tree on the stamp before stamping on my paper.  I am very happy with the outcome.  I may add some birds in the sky – it was suggested during the live and I do like the idea.

Here’s the video if you wish to see how I made the card:

I’d love to know what you think!

High Cotton

Thanks, Country Lane, Cotton, Stampin' Up!, SU!The cotton is stamped on the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper in Jet Black StaZon ink.  I colored the cotton using the Stampin’ Chalk Marker.

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:
