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 …

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.

Simply Sunday: You Warm My Heart

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today’s card is featured in the Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog on page 96. Had to take a double take on this one … then I thought “How cute is that! I would have never thought of doing that”. Isn’t that how we all got hooked on stamping and scrapbooking!!

This sweet and simple card was created with the “leaves” … now dots, from the “Sheltering Tree” stamp set! It’s stamped once on the card front and then again on another sheet of cardstock and cut out with our Hearts framelits.

The greeting is included in the stamp set, and all they did here was create as simple banner as the focal point … genius! To top it off … a simple bow made with our Thick Bakers Twine.

This card was picked today because it fits my Simply Sunday theme and because it was created with “outside the box” thinking! Next time I look at a stamp set, I’ll be thinking a whole different way.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the day!

Thinking of You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed your Valentine’s day … I spent mine with my great grandson ❤ so nice!

Today I’d like to share a card with you that you can easily recreate and send off to your friends. It starts with the “Color Me Irresistible” Designer Series paper. My base card is Soft Sky as is the ink I sponged onto the card front.

The “Color Me Irresistible” Designer Series paper takes the work of the “Resist” technique out of your hands so all you have to do is add the color … easy peasy!

Once that was done I punched two flowers from the “Pansy” punch … I curved the petals on the bottom flower down, and the petals on the top flower up. This gave my card much dimension.

The Soft Sky center was punched from the 1/2″ punch, then crumpled and pulled apart, and re-crumbled to create the center you see on my flower.

My greeting comes from the “Sheltering Tree” stamp set, and I stamped it with StazOn so it would cover the “resist” dots … other inks would resist, leaving your greeting spoty.

I actually CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) this card from our very own Stampin’ Success magazine. (From Stampin’ Up! for their demonstrators) … another one of the lovely perks we enjoy as demonstrators.

You should think of joining us … we have a great group. Tomorrow I will share a few of our swap cards along with the Weekly Deals.

Till then … Enjoy your day.

Falling for You …

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!

So I’m hanging on a little longer by creating a card that I’ll keep on my desk till the snow falls! This was a fun card to make, I used the “Baby Wipe” technique to get all this color …

I added the leaves to create my ground cover and then added a greeting which is included in the stamp set. To jazz it up a bit, I punched the corners with our new Curvy Corner Trio Punch … I love the fun design.
