Stampin’ Up! Falling For Leaves – Thinking of You

As we speak I am away at a scrapbooking retreat.

As much as I love card making, scrapbooking is my first love, but I really only work on it during this weekend away.

I work on three different books – one for each of my kids.  I plan on posting pictures along the way on my Facebook page, so be sure to swing by to see what I’m working on.

My card today starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock.  I next stamped the Buffalo Check stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I wrapped a Mint Macaron bow around the card front.  This ribbon is part of the Nature’s Twine pack.

Using the Detailed Leaf Thinlits, I cut out the bottom leaf from Crumb Cake cardstock and the top (more detailed) leaf from Crushed Curry cardstock.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Falling For Leaves Stamp Set in Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Layering Circles Framelits.  I used the same framelits to cut out a Mint Macaron scalloped circle.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Falling for Leaves/Many Blessings Card

Today’s card was one I made last week for my Facebook Live Tutorial.

This is a weekly video that I do at 7:30 pm EST.  I have a sweet snowflake card for you tonight so I hope you’ll join me!

If you catch it live and leave some sort of a comment, at the end I draw a name for someone to receive that night’s card!

If you ever miss any of the tutorials, you can check them out on my YouTube Channel.

This card was CASEd (copy and selectively edit) from one of my upline’s cards a few years back.  You can see her card here.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Thank You

I sure hope you’re having a great week.

I have been a lean-mean crafting machine as I’m doing a craft fair this weekend – making lots of super cute and fun doo-daas.

I hope to post some pictures Saturday on my Facebook page.  Wish me luck!

My card today is all fall!!

It starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock which I embossed using the Simply Stripes Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock (to be matted on Mossy Meadow cardstock) and used the Painted Harvest stamp set to stamp sunflowers across it.  I used Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze inks to stamp the sunflowers.

I used the masking technique to stamp the leaves in Mossy Meadow ink around the sunflowers.

Lastly I did some layering with a Very Vanilla banner, punched Mossy Meadow leaves, and Very Vanilla Polka Dot ribbon.  For the sentiment, I stamped it in Versamark ink on Cajun Craze cardstock.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder, heat set it, and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Give Thanks Blog Hop

Today marks a new Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  Be sure to play along this week!

This is a beautiful fall theme challenge and I thought it worked perfectly with this month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme which is “Giving Thanks.”

My card starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I then took a panel of Mango Melody cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

Using the Layering Circles Framelits I cut out a circle first from the Mango Melody cardstock.  I traced the cut circle on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and on the Pumpkin Pie card front.  I then lined up the circle framelit over and cut them out.

I stamped the sunflower image from the Many Blessings stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock to be adhered inside the card.  I also stamped the wreath on a separate panel of Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink.

I used Dark Mango Melody (inside of sunflower and highlight on leaf), Light Daffodil Delight (edge of sunflower), Dark & Light Granny Apple Green (leaves), Smokey Slate (jar), Light Pumpkin Pie (highlight on leaf), and Light Crumb Cake (inside of sunflower) Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the images in.

I used the wreath from the Many Blessings Stamp Set, but made it a complete circle by using the masking technique.  I stamped the wreath first in Memento Black ink.  I then covered the two ends with a piece of scrap paper.  I very carefully only inked up a bit of the wreath again and stamped the image, connecting the two ends.

I then fussy cut the wreath out and adhered it over the cicle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Many Blessings Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch to cut the ends and the hole for the tag.  I wove through some Linen Thread and tied a Braided Linen ribbon over it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Trick or Tweet Card

This week the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is joining the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  We could use the  sketch challenge or color challenge.  I thought they both worked nicely together.

My card starts off with Granny Apple Green cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper.

Next I stamped the kitty image from the Trick or Tweet Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in the kitty and the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Marker to give a slight shade to the bandages.

I stamped the pumpkin on a separate piece of Whisper White in Memento Black ink, which I colored with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers and Light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I fussy cut it out with the Paper Snips and adhered it over the kitty’s paw with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I matted the Whisper White cardstock panel on Granny Apple Green cardstock and placed a piece of Black Glittered Organdy ribbon underneath it.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Trick or Tweet Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and added a few Mango Melody enamel shapes from the Best Route Enamel Shapes next to it.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Thanks

Hello friends!

I love the product suites that Stampin’ Up! puts together in their catalogs.

It’s a combination of stamps, Designer Series Paper, ribbon, and embellishments that all coordinate together.  It’s a sure win that all the elements will look great today.  Makes card making so easy.

Today’s card uses the Country Lane Product Suite.

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Country Lane DSP.  I then matted a panel of Old Olive cardstock on Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the images from the Country Home Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers to color it in.  I cut it out using the Layering Ovals Framelits.

I cut down the Chicken Wire embellishment which went under the vase which I adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Country Home Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss ink.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s TGIF Challenges.

Head over to my Facebook page tonight at 7:30 pm EST.  I’m featuring a Christmas card using the new Make Christmas Bright Stamp Set.  Be sure to like the page as I always put out a reminder ahead of time so you don’t forget.

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons

Today’s card is a beautiful fall card featuring three-toned leaves.

My card today starts off with Fresh Fig cardstock.  I stamped the Hardwood stamp set in Fresh Fig ink over the card front.  I then matted a panel of Whisper White cardstock on Tangerine Tango cardstock.

To create my colorful leaves I used Fresh Fig, Tangerine Tango, and Pumpkin Pie ink and a sponge.  I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and started sponging Pumpkin Pie ink at the top.  Next I sponged Tangerine Tango ink followed by Fresh Fig ink last.

I then used the detailed leaf from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut out leaves and adhered them over the Whisper White cardstock using liquid glue.

 

Next I wrapped around a Fresh Fig bow and tied a Linen Thread bow in the center of it.  Lastly, I stamped the outline of the banner from the Number of Years stamp set in Fresh Fig ink on Tangerine Tango cardstock and cut it out using the Large Numbers Framelits.  I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Fresh Fig ink in the center of it and adhered the banner using two Stampin’ Dimensionals high.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by the challenge this week at Fab Friday.

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin Blessings

Happy Monday everyone!

Today’s card combines two of my favorite stamps from the Holiday Catalog – love-love-love!

My card starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

I then took a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and stamped the sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Versamark ink on it.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it using the Heat Tool.  I matted it on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it to the card.

I used the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle and stamped my pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie, Peekaboo Peach, and Crushed Curry ink.  I cut them out and a few vines in Copper Foil Sheet using the coordinating framelits.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by challenges this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper, TGIF, and Hand Stamped Sentiments.  For the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, I went right across the middle.
