Painted Autumn Sunflower Card

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

My card today was a labor of love.  I’m not a huge fussy cutter, but with the gorgeous printed sunflowers on a pattern in the NEW Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (available September 1st), I had to get my paper snips out!

My card starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock.  I took a panel of Early Espresso cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  Before adhering it to the card, I adhered a doily behind it.

I took the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and fussy cut out one of the sunflowers.  I added a strip of Tear & Tape adhesive to the Early Espresso cardstock where the sunflower would go and added a strip burlap and mini gold sequins.  I adhered the sunflower using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set in Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock.

Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK Night in Bethlehem Card

For today’s card I decided to CASE (copy and selectively edit) another designer’s card from the Global Design Project challenge this week.  I chose Jessica Williams the other day.

This time I chose Shawn de Oliveira.  I was so inspired by her card, but decided to flip what part got heat embossed and what part got dry embossed.

My card starts off with Sahara Sand cardstock.  I took the pine bough from the NEW Christmas Happiness stamp set and stamped it in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I did this twice, both at the top and bottom of the card.

I then took a panel of Fresh Fig cardstock and dry embossed it using the new and gorgeous Winter Wonder TIEF.  I matted this on a piece of Silver Foil Sheet and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Night in Bethlehem stamp set in Fresh Fig ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out and mounted it on a scalloped oval of Silver Foil Sheet using the Layering Oval Framelits.  I folded over a piece Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon underneath it and also added a banner of Fresh Fig cardstock.

Enjoy!

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the hanging ornaments in Cherry Cobbler ink.  I matted this on another piece of Champagne Foil Sheet.

SNEAK PEEK Merry Café

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

My card today uses a bit of brand new product from the Holiday Catalog, as well as product that is currently in the Annual Catalog.

Specifically, from the Holiday Catalog I used the Merry Café Stamp Set which coordinates beautifully with the Coffee Café Bundle.

My card uses Soft Sky cardstock as its base and layered it with a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut a banner of Gold cardstock which I layered over that.

First I took a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock.  On the bottom I adhered behind it two banners of patterns from the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper.

I used the Coffee Café Bundle to create my coffee cup using the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper.  The lid and sentiment comes from the NEW Merry Café stamp set which I stamped in Soft Sky ink.  I picked this sentiment, thinking this card would be sweet for someone expecting a new baby.  I layered underneath the coffee cup some Soft Sky Ribbon and Mini Gold Sequins.

Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK Painted Autumn Stamp Set

I am so excited to introduce a few NEW products from this year’s Holiday Catalog!!

The Holiday Catalog is available to order from starting September 1st.  If you’d like to receive a catalog, let me know and I’d be happy to mail you one – stampinjaimie@gmail.com

My card today starts off with Early Espresso cardstock.  I then took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and used the NEW Painted Autumn Bundle to create my scene.  I first stamped the sunflower in Daffodil Delight ink and then the more detailed image in Crushed Curry ink.  I stamped the center part in Early Espresso ink.

I created my sentiment using the Labels to Love stamp set which coordinates with the NEW Everyday Label Punch.  I stamped the “Give Thanks” in Early Espresso ink on Crushed Curry cardstock and punched it out.  I cut out another label in Early Espresso cardstock, cut it in half, and slightly layered it behind the Crushed Curry.

I wound around some Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine before adhering the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the leaf three times in Garden Green ink (stamping off the less detailed image first) and cut it out with the Leaf Punch which comes in the Painted Autumn Bundle (saving you 10%).  Lastly, I matted the Very Vanilla cardstock on Garden Green cardstock and added a few enamel circles to finish it off.

Enjoy!
