Pumpkin!

Welcome to my blog!

Todays card was inspired by the Paper Players challenge #PP456.

And this is the card I created:

My card is using a combination of two new bundle sets form the new 2019 Holiday Catalog which will come available to you on September 4th. The sets I used are Gather Together and Harvest Hellos. My colors are Whisper White for my base card and Cajun Craze for my first layer which I embossed with the leaf embossing folder. The Pumpkin is from the Harvest Hellos bundle set and I used Pumpkin Pie ink and cardstock. I tied a simple piece of twine around the stem of the Pumpkin. The leaves I colored with Granny Smith Blendabilities and cut them out with scissors. A bit tedious to be honest however I thought that the pumpkin just looks a little plain without them. I hope I’m getting you excited for the new products in the new catalog. To get your catalog shop my online store.

Snowman!

Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog.

Todays card is a short introduction of what is featured in the 2019 Stampin’Up! Holiday Catalog. This cute stamp set is called Snowman Season and it comes with a coordinating punch. I created a very simple card using only one layer of old DSP I found laying around. So let’s have a look.

For this card I used Whisper White cardstock cut to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. I had a piece of old DSP and thought that would be perfect for my card. As you see any plaid DSP will work. I added another piece of Whisper White measuring 2 ” x 3-3/4″. I stamped the snowflakes with Balmy Blue ink. For the snowman I used Memento Black ink and the coordinating punch to cut him out. Not much else to this card as you see. The new catalog will come out September 4th and I have to say it is filled with all kinds of goodies.

Remember BONUS DAYS? You got 5 days to redeem your coupons. I can’t stress it enough. Don’t let your coupon or coupons go away. August 31st is the last day to redeem them.

Touch Of Fall

Good morning and welcome to my Blog!

Todays card was inspired by the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #517. And this was our challenge:

Fall is on my mind for sure when I looked at this challenge that was all I could think off. The region I live in still battles heat indexes! We need a break, especially my flowers. 

For this card challenge I used two stamp sets. My choice was Country Home and Gather Together. The Gather Together set will be available to purchase on September 4th with the debut of the 2019 Holiday Catalog.

The colors for this card are Crushed Curry, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. I had some old DSP left from last years catalog and used it for this card. My base card is Crushed Curry and measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. The first layer is Soft Suede cardstock and measures 4″ x 5-1/4″. The second layer is another Crushed Curry cardstock piece and measures 3-1/2″ x 5″. The DSP measures 3″ x 4-1/2″. For the image I used Soft Suede and Very Vanilla cardstock. Gather Together set was used for the image. The background was stamped in Soft Suede. The pumpkins came from the Gather Together set and  I used Pumpkin Pie cardstock and Pumpkin Pie ink. The Gather Together set comes with coordinating dies and is available in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog. I thought this makes a great fall card combining two stamp sets together. Click on the catalog image and for any purchase from my online store you will get a free catalog from me.

Snowman Season!

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Call me desperate but we still have sweltering heat where I live. So I thought I create this card. The snow man is just too cute.

Any order form my online store will get you a free catalog.

So with no further to do, here is the card I’m presenting today.

 When I first looked at this set in the catalog I knew I had to have it. My stamp collection was missing a cute little snowman set.

Painted Harvest

Good morning and thank you for taking the time to check out my blog!

My card this morning features Stampin’Up! Painted Harvest stamp set. This is a sunflower themed set. And it coordinates with the leaf punch. Now I really like the idea when Stampin’Up! has stamp sets which coordinates with tools we already have or at least most of us have. With the end of August approaching, fall is ever so slightly knocking on the door. The region I live in we are still in full swing of summer with temperatures hovering in the upper 90’s and heat indexes are still 105 F and above. But maybe some of you are already getting a small taste of fall. I have to say Fall is probably my favorite time of the year. With this said, here is what I came up with:

For this card I started using Crushed Curry cardstock for my base card. My card measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. The first layer is Soft Suede cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Next my second layer is Whisper White cardstock measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″. I used the Crackled Paint background stamp and Soft Suede ink to stamp the image on the second layer. On Whisper White cardstock stamp two sunflower images using Mango Melody ink. I cut the images out with scissors. The center of the sunflower was stamped with Soft Suede ink. I inked the leaves with Garden Green and used the Leaf punch to cut the images out. My sentiment and the inside of this card all came from this set. I thought the color combination Crushed Curry, Soft Suede and Whisper White make for a great fall card. My material list is as follows.

seedling leaf punch

Leaf Punch – 144667 – $16.00

Crackle Paint Cling Stamp Set

Check You Out!

Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog!

Today’s card features a truly awesome stamp set I just happened to stumble across in the 2019-2020 Stampin’Up! catalog. Check you out! Awesome set for school beginnings or even as a graduation card. It’s just too cute. This cute set can be found on Pg. 58 in the main catalog. It includes 16 photopolymer stamps. My favorite is that cute little owl. You can even put some glasses on him. Just adorable! But enough of that here is what I came up with!

For this card I used Gray Granite cardstock for my base card. My base card measures 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. A piece of Whisper White cardstock was used for my first layer. The second layer is Cherry Cobbler cardstock and I stamped small books evenly onto the cardstock with Cherry Cobbler ink. I stamped the owl image with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out. I used Cherry Cobbler ink for the first book, Crushed Curry ink for the second book and Pretty Peacock ink for the last book. I cut all the books out and glued them to another piece of Gray Granite cardstock as shown. I positioned the owl on top of the book and adhered the image with Multipurpose glue. Next I stamped the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock and cut that out with a 1/2″ circle punch. I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut out another circle using a 3/4″ punch. An old stamp was used for the inside however that cute little heart is from the Check You Out stamp set. Below is my material list for this card:

CHECK YOU OUT PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET

It’s A Lovely Day

Hi Everyone and thank you for stopping by.

Some exciting news, I will start September 2nd with my own video tutorials. Since I have never done this before, I will need the help of some experts. Like I have said before I have the tendency to overthink. In so many words it’s probably super easy. But just in case I run into a snag, I decided to practice and figure a few things out before going live and embarrassing myself. But enough of that! My card today was inspired by the Paper Players Color Challenge: PP454.

And this is what I came up with:

For this project I used the Lovely Is The Day Bundle set. My colors are Basic Black for my base card. The first layer is Whisper White followed by a second layer of Pear Pizzazz. I used the stitched rectangle shapes to cut out a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped the image onto that piece with Memento Black ink and colored it with Stampin Blends. Next I cut the image with the coordinating die. Some of the dies in this set do not cut the image fully out giving this particular piece a 3D dimension. I lifted the pieces with my bone folder. Looking at it makes me think that the leaves and flowers in that image are wavy. The sentiment came from the Free As A Bird set. I decorated the card with Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets.

Materials for this card are as followed:

Free As A Bird

Hello and thank you for stopping by today!

This is one of those days where I have a difficult time choosing what kind of card to create. I’m looking through my stash of stamp sets and just couldn’t make up my mind. It probably took a good hour or so to finally make a decision. I bought this bundle set just recently namely because of the stitched nested label dies which come with this bundle. The set I’m referring to is called FREE AS A BIRD and is on page 91 in the 2019-2020 Stampin’Up! catalog. Absolutely adorable and the stitched nested label dies are so versatile. So let’s have a look:

For this card I simply cut Whisper White cardstock to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. The first layer was embossed using the 3D Brick and Mortar Embossing Folder and it measures 5-1/4″ x 4″. I inked the edges with Gray Granite ink. Using a sponge dauber dipped in Gray Granite ink, I ever so lightly brushed over the embossed cardstock. I wrapped twine around the first layer three times. I adhered that layer to the base card using dimensionals. Next I stamped the image onto Whisper White cardstock and colored it with Stampin Blends. My choice of Blends were Calypso Coral, light Crumb Cake, dark Granny Apple, light Coastal Cabana and dark Lovely Lipstick. The nested label dies were used to cut the image out. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Black ink and the flower was colored using dark Lovely Lipstick. This set makes great friendship cards.

My Materials for this card are:

FREE AS A BIRD BUNDLE

twine in 4 colors – 146342 – $9.00

Friendship Card

 

Hello and welcome for visiting my blog today!

Todays card was inspired by the Fab Friday stampin Challenge #169. This is the sketch which was given to us:

This is the card I’m submitting for this challenge:

 

The Daisy Lane Bundle set was my choice to create this card. I used Petal Pink for my base card. For my first card layer Mossy Meadow made a great addition. I embossed that layer with the 3D layered Leaves Embossing folder. Next I cut a small strip of  Basic Black cardstock. I punched out a circle with the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch. Next I stamped the fern image with Old Olive onto the circle (as shown). I stamped a medium daisy twice onto whisper white cardstock using Mango Melody ink. I punched the daisies out with  the coordinating daisy punch and adhered the image to the circle with dimensionals. I curled the petals a little with a bone folder. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Black ink directly onto the circle. I decorated the daisy with a Faceted Gold Gem.

Materials for this card:

DAISY LANE BUNDLE

DAISY LANE BUNDLE – 151118 – $35.00
