Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Card

There’s a great Designer Series Paper sale starting October 1st…
15% off select Designer Series Paper from the Annual and Mini Catalogs.

In light of this, all my cards this week will use Designer Series Paper and share one of my favorite ways to use it.

If you missed day one, click here.

I like to use Designer Series Paper to add a small detail to my cards.  Sometimes you just want a little extra “oomph” and it’s perfect for just that.  It doesn’t have to be the focal point of a project, but still can add a nice little detail to it.

My card today starts off with Gray Granite cardstock.  I cut a small pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to adhere to the card front.  I took two smaller panels of Gray Granite cardstock and stamped the wheat from the Gather Together Stamp Set in Gray Granite ink on the bottom.

I matted these on Whisper White cardstock and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the same Gather Together Stamp Set and stamped the big pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie ink, one small cluster of pumpkins in Gray Granite ink, and the second one in Crumb Cake ink.  I colored them in using Stampin’ Blends Markers in the same colors.

I cut them out with the coordinating Gathered Leaves Dies.  I used the same dies to cut out leaves from Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pin, and Crumb Cake cardstock to go behind the pumpkins.

When I was all done, I realized I hadn’t left room for the sentiment, so I decided to stamp the sentiment on the inside in Gray Granite ink.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!

Stampin’ Up! Week of Designer Series Paper – Day 1

Let’s talk Designer Series Paper for a second.

October 1st Stampin’ Up! is doing a Designer Series Paper sale – 15% off select DSP from the Annual and Mini Catalog!!

And you can’t have Designer Series Paper without solid cardstock, so if your order is $50+ and you buy at least one pack of Designer Series Paper, in the month of October, I’m giving away a free pack of cardstock (on top of your free $9 item)!

In light of this sale, I will be using Designer Series Paper on ALL my cards this week and sharing the different ways I like to use it.

If you’re unsure what colors to use – look at the colors Stampin’ Up! puts together in their Designer Series Paper.  They know what they’re doing and many times will use combinations of colors that I won’t have thought of.

For the foliage in today’s card, I took the colors right from a pattern from the Plaid Tidings DSP.

My card starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the images from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry (leaf), Cajun Craze (acorn), and Pumpkin Pie (leaf) on Whisper White cardstock and cut them out using the Autumn Pack Punches.  I stamped off first for the lighter solid image.

Lastly I added a few Artistry Blooms Sequins around.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!!
Be sure to take a look at the upcoming Designer Series Paper sale and get your wish list ready!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Love for Leaves Fall Hello Card

The Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper is a great pack of all different patterns of plaid.

There are Christmas patterns and fall patterns, even Valentine’s Day, and then some general plaids.

The plaid I picked for today’s card reminds me of a beautiful poncho and I knew I had to use it for an all occasion fall card.

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock, which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

I then took a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper using the Layering Circles Dies.  I used the Stitched Leaves Dies to cut out a leaf from the circle.

I cut out a scalloped Cajun Craze circle using the same Circle Dies and then used the Stitched Leaves Dies again to make an impression of a leaf in it.  I adhered the plaid over the Cajun Craze circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Love for Leaves Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today.
Be sure to check out the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper for all your stamping needs!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Hello Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then adhered on it a pattern from the Gilded Autumn Designer Series paper.

I then used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at an angle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink in the corner and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then used the Autumn Punch Pack to cut out leaves and acorns from a pattern in the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper, which I adhered next to the sentiment.  That’s it – it’s a pretty easy and simple card.

Thanks for checking out my card today.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Blank Card

Sunflowers and plaid…yes please!!

Looking at this card, I can almost feel fall in the air….well, that is if it wasn’t still hotter than anything out there.

My card starts off with Cajun Craze cardstock.  I then adhered over it a plaid pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  I then matted a pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper on Cajun Craze cardstock.

I stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored it in using Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pin (sunflower), Old Olive (leaves), Soft Suede (center) Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out with the coordinating Sunflowers Dies.

I used the same dies to cut out sprigs from Pretty Peacock cardstock and leaves from Old Olive cardstock.  Underneath the flower I wound around some Gold Thread and adhered it over a Gold Hoop.

I couldn’t decide where to place the sentiment, so I ended up leaving the front blank and just adding a thank you sentiment to the inside.

Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Plaid Card

The Inkin’ Krew has a fun blog hop this month for you.  The theme is “Fall Frenzy“.  Have fun seeing what everyone’s made.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks Embossing folder.

I then cut out a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I used the Stitched Leaves Die to cut out a leaf from it and matted this on Bumblebee cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Underneath the plaid, I offset a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the same Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Underneath it I added a piece of Bumblebee ribbon.
