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! 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.

Thanks for checking out my project today!
Be sure to check out my store to pick up the fun goodies to create today’s card!

Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Thanks Card

I love mixing new items with items that have been around for a bit.

Today I mixed the NEW World of Good Designer Series Paper with the returning Sailing Home Stamp Set.

My card starts off with Misty Moonlight cardstock.  I took a pattern from the World of Good Designer Series Paper and stamped the birds on it in Misty Moonlight ink to adhere to the card front.  I took another pattern and ripped the edges of it to make it a little rustic.

I stamped the lighthouse from the Sailing Home Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight ink.  I adhered this down on a Whisper White panel cut using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink and cut it out using the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I adhered it and the lighthouse down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for swinging by to check out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! Spritzed Celebrate Sunflowers Card

I tend to create literally.

Meaning if there’s an animal, I color it the way it actually looks, or if there’s a flower, use colors of real flowers.

It is, however, nice to try something new and that’s what I’ve done today using a spritzer and the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.

My card starts off with Magenta Madness cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I took the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and applied Magenta Madness ink and Mango Melody ink using a Sponge Dauber.  I then sprayed water on the sunflower using a Spritzer and stamped it on Whisper White panel.

I did the same thing with the leaf image using Granny Apple Green ink and Old Olive ink.  I then added a Magenta Madness bow next to the sentiment.

I also wanted to try the same coloring but without the spritzed water and this was the result:

Let me know which one you like more.

Enjoy!
