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!

Keeping It Simple Friday

Hi!  Today I have a quick and simple card for you – because sometimes, that is just what we need.  Thinking of You, Rooted in Nature, Fall, Stampin' Up!, SU!Simple doesn’t have to mean ugly.  I love the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper pack – such gorgeous colors!  I am not sure I would have thought to do leaves in Blackberry Bliss and Petal Pink – but this paper is just so pretty!   As I said, I kept it simple by just adding a sentiment, a little baker’s wine and a leaf embellishment.    Pretty straightforward and done in less than 10 minutes.

What do you think?  Do you like quick and easy?  With some of our Designer Series Paper you don’t need more than a sentiment and a little embellishing.

A Lemon For Teacher?

Hi!  Today I am playing along in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights!  Our theme this month is Teachers!   If you like my card, I’d love your vote!  You can vote here  and then click on the heart in the upper right corner of my card.

Ok – so here’s my card:

Teachers, Apples, Lemon Zest, Stampin' Up!, SU!

School starts at the end of this month for my kids, so now is a good time be thinking of back-to-school cards and gifts.

I didn’t really have an apple set or anything else teacher related – so I turned my lemons into apples!  That’s right – I stamped the lemon from the Lemon Zest stamp set in Real Red ink, punched with the Lemon Builder Punch and then trimmed top and bottom to make an apple.  I added a stem using a scrap of Early Espresso card stock.  The leaves are stamped in Old Olive.  What do you think?  Pretty clever?

I added a Welcome sentiment using the Banners For You stamp set and the Duo Banner punch.

The apples are attached to a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Tropical Escape Paper Stack that measures 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.   This is mounted on Early Espresso Card Stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The base is Old Olive Card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ – scored and folded at 4 1/4″.

Make sure you check out all the other demonstrators for more fun Teacher themed projects!

You’ll find all the supplies to make this card in my on-line store.

Don’t forget it is Bonus Days time and each $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) you spend this month, earns you a $5 coupon to use in September.

Mountain View

Hi!  How are you today?  Sorry I didn’t get to post the other day – I’ve been trying to get better about posting 3-4 times a week – and that didn’t happen.   But, I am back today with a card featuring the Waterfront stamp set.

Hello, Just Because, Waterfront, Stampin' Up!, SU!This is the card I featured at the Catalog Kick-off back in June to showcase the Stamparatus tool.  This tool makes it so easy to create scenes such as this one – and to mass produce them as well.  The mountains are stamped in Soft Suede, the water in Balmy Blue, the trees in Old Olive and the sun in So Saffron.  The Sentiment is from the Varied Vases stamp set and is stamped in Soft Suede ink.

The mountain scene is stamped on a piece of Whisper White Card stock that measures 3 3/4 x 5″.  This is mounted on a piece of Soft Suede card stock that measures 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.  The base of the card is thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″ – scored at 5 1/2″ and folded on the score line.

These products can be found in my on-line store here.

Hostess Code until August 15 is W6P6Y3C6

This card does have some sentimental value to me as well as growing up my family would spend a week at a lake in the summer and sometimes I’d get to see a view similar to this.

This coming week I’ll be showcasing a few cards featuring the new Blended Seasons bundle that is available for purchase for August only.  Stay tuned!
