Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m really excited to share my next alternative project with you! From the comments and the “pins” you really liked the Gold Leaf card, I do to but this card is full of color and gold and I think it’s my favorite so far!!

Stunning… right!  I just love all the layers of leaves … and they are all included in the kit! I pulled apart one of the envelopes and cut it into 3″ x 1″ strips, then I stamped the greeting on a left-over piece and punched it out with a 1-1/2″ circle punch … then layer. Viola!!

 

Incredible dimension is created by simply layer the leaves … no dimensionals were needed.

Color Me Thankful …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m bringing the color back to our September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit … Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango to be exact!

I had these cute little leaves left over from my kit so I had to do something with them. I was inspired by greenery that is “framed” as artwork for the home.

This simple card just takes the 3 different colors in 1-1/2″ x 3″ strips that were mounted onto a 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ Soft Suede mat. The greeting taken from the stamps included in the kit and stamped in Cajun Craze … also included in the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.

I could not resist incorporating the beautiful “Layered Leaves” 3-D Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder … it coordinates so nicely and gives your card a great texture.

WOW … how simple was this card to make, and perfect for the upcoming fall season.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Besides the Paper Pumpkin kit, I have a list of additional supplies below.

Have a warm and wonderful day!

Simply Sunday: Be Filled with Thanks …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

A little late in my posting but I couldn’t miss a Simply Sunday post! And what could be simpler than a stamping kit …. and what could be simpler than a kit that comes delivered right to your door (or mailbox)! Paper Pumpkin is the monthly stampin’ kit I’m referring to.

Here are all the goodies that are included in the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit … What’s really nice is that when you are done making the projects, there are always left overs … not to mention a Stamp Set and an Ink Spot!! Definitely worth the money … but the surprise each month is priceless.

Included in this months kit are 8 Gift Cards with matching envelopes and 8 Pillow Boxes … complete with score lines and this beautiful pattern.

The Pillow Box is what I was playing with today. Yesterday I showed you the video which shared the Stampin’ Up! creations. I have altered it somewhat …

I changed the pattern of the leaves because I made a little boo-boo on my main leaf … so as we all do, I changed it up a bit.  I also placed my bouquet of leaves horizontally instead of vertically because I wanted to showcase the beautiful embossed Pillow Box as much as I could.

I also used the long tag verses the round one that Stampin’ Up! showed us in the instructions. I just wish the picture would have picked up the colors better … this looks a bit dull. I will need to work on my lighting!

I will be back all this week with more alternatives to the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.  Wonder how you can still get this kit?  Sign up for Paper Pumpkin now, and you will be eligible to purchase past kits … including this one!

Beautiful Thing Card & Color Theory Class Announcement

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a card to share with you that represents another class that I will be hosting this July.  It comes from the Color Theory Suite … you’ve seen the cute card I shared a couple days ago with the Adirondack chair and the feel of summer, today’s card feels like the first breath of Autumn …

I used both the stamps and the dies for the leaves and then matted them with the Color Theory Designer Series paper.  Life is a beautiful thing and this is just one of the beautiful verses in this stamp set, and I highlighted that by using it with one of the oval dies from the “Stitched Shapes Framelits”.

We tied the entire card together by placing the pretty little “Glitter Enamel Dots” around the card front. You can see it draws your eye from the base to the greeting and then to the leaves. Simply pretty.

Here are the details for my upcoming Color Theory Stamp Class …

Throwback Thursday: Autumn Leaves

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

OK – there are way too many leaves off the tree’s already … Where did autumn go? This is my favorite time of year and I feel like I was so busy that I missed it!

Today I’m sharing a card that I made last year.  This was a fun card to make, I used the “Baby Wipe” technique to get all this color …

000_2746

I knew I wanted to use the “Sheltering Tree” stamp set, and the “Baby Wipe” technique is the easiest and quickest way to create the explosion of color. I laid out a stack of 4 – 5 baby wipes and began dropping ink from the refill bottles.

I used Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red re-inkers, then pressed the leaves into the inked up baby wipe and stamped it onto the tree which was already stamped in Chocolate Chip.

I added the leaves to create my ground cover and then added a greeting which is included in the stamp set.  Unfortunately the Curvy Corner Trio Punch was discontinued…. I miss it!

A simple card yes, but too pretty to resist.

Thank you for joining me today,

I hope you have a good day.
