Hello Fall

I cannot get enough of the stitched look in papercrafting. The detail just seems to dress up every image. This fall card showcases some of our new embellishments.
Love-of-Leaves-3I die-cut the letters FALL using the new Playful Alphabet dies and hung them from one of the gold hoops to create a little banner. Then I added a metal acorn trinket to the linen thread bow. Those acorn trinkets are stinkin’ adorable. And they will coordinate with all your fall projects. You NEED them!

Take a closer look at the Mint Macaron strip on the card. I used that stitched line die that comes in that set (Stitched Leaves Dies). It almost looks like patterned paper. So cool. I did use a small piece of striped DSP from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP pack to die-cut one of the leaves.

It has quite a bit of dimension on it, so if you mail this you I would suggest that you add some padding by way of an extra piece of cardstock or even a layer of tissue paper to protect the embellishments…and it will be extra postage as well. Thankfully, this one isn’t going in the mail:)

I also had a gift bag that needed a tag today, so I whipped up this super simple tag with some of the leftover leaves on my desk. I added a little bit shimmer with our new Elegant Faceted Gems. I hope you like it.

Get&Go Details-1Are you thinking about it?
Do you have a few friends that like to papercraft as well? When I purchased my starter kit, I had been getting together with friends to make cards. Just a girls night here and there…or at a weekend retreat…I envisioned that I would sign up and then they could get all their supplies from me. In turn, I would make a little bit of money.

So that’s what I did. And then THEY told people that they knew to order from me.  And so it began. Friends help friends along the journey. You don’t have to figure it all out by yourself. If you love Stampin’ Up! product, you have nothing to lose and so much to gain. I treasure the friendships that have come out of my Stampin’ Up! journey. Many of them will be life-long.

Cheers to Stampin’ Up! 

Love of Leaves

It’s beginning to look a bit like Fall…I think it’s actually my favorite season. (Unless you classify Christmas as a season…then it would definitely be Christmas!) The new Love of Leaves Bundle in our mini catalogue just gives me all the warm feels of this time of year. I just wish fall was longer in this part of the world. I love it when the leaves change color…but they fall off way too quickly.

This card is a version of the one you see in our catalogue on pg. 49. The layout has just been switched to portrait instead of landscape. Love-of-Leaves-1The details in the stitching on these leaves is absolutely stunning. And do you see the stitched lines down the left side? That is what one of the dies does! Love-of-Leaves-Bundle

#155195   Love of Leaves Bundle   $64.75

Technique: You’ll notice that the leaves have a little streaky look to them. To achieve this look, use your finger dauber to pull off some of the ink before you stamp the leaves onto your cardstock.

Ink Colors: Crumb Cake, Bumblebee and Mint Macaron

Summer Vibes

I was feeling all the summer vibes when I created this card for a recent swap. I’m in love with this fresh color scheme! Doesn’t it just make you want to go make one of these right now?
Nothing's Better Than-1This week was supposed to be the start of our Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Maui…so we’re all feeling a little sad around here. I guess we’ll just have to sit in our backyard and make these fruity drinks with umbrellas in them!

I’ve been playing with a ton of new product from the new 2020/21 Annual Catalogue that just came out at the beginning of June. Guys…it’s full of amazing product!!  My workspace has EXPLODED and I have so many wonderful projects to share with you.

I’m sure it won’t shock you when I say that one of my first loves as I poured over the new catalogue was this bundle called Nothing’s Better Than.
Nothing's Better Than BundleThe possibilities are endless on this one!! Cookies, Chocolate, Coffee, Cocktails??  I mean, come on :)

Because I was feeling the summer vibes this week, I started with the cocktails card.
The cardstock colors I used were: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Terracotta Tile
For the drink: The ombre effect is achieved by using daubers and and daubing right onto the stamp and then placing the stamp onto the cardstock. (I used Petal Pink and Calypso Coral ink.)
For the lime & umbrella: Granny Apple Lt. Blends Marker and the Daffodil Delight Lt. Blends Marker.
Nothing's Better Than-2 All the product for this card can be found in my online store HERE. Please use Hostess Code K9TNVWQJ at the checkout screen to receive a small thank you from me.
