Stampin’ Up! Thanksgiving card

Hi Friends,

I do love the Fall!

The smell of autumn is intoxicating to me.

I love the colors which tell me the summer has worked very hard…now is time for the leaves to ‘rest’.

So when I saw this Stampin’ UP! Falling For Leaves stamp set, I knew I had to have it!

Here is my very own version of a card I will be excited to send.

The base is Merry Merlot and the next layer is Old Olive.

I embossed the Very Vanilla layer with the NEW Subtles Dynamic Embossing Folder.

You can’t  see the impressions…. well because it’s ‘subtle’ but in real life, it is VERY nice.

It adds just enough texture to give it some extra ‘subtle’ attention!

Next I took the leaf stamps and using Old Olive, Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze inks, stamped then cut them out with the Thinlits.

Then for just a bit of pizzazz, I took Old Olive ribbon and Linen Thread to make a small bow. This was attached with a Glue Dot.

In the opposite corner I just had to add a Gold Faceted gem.

The message was layered onto a piece of Merry Merlot and adhered with Dimensionals. AND of COURSE I just had to use a bit of Wink of Stella –here and there for interest. To me, Wink of Stella is a must fro any project–it adds a sparkle of interest!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Blizzard

Hi Friends,

Once my mind has accepted the fact that snow is tight around my corner, I DO get excited about pretty snowy cards!

AND THIS IS ONE!

I used Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Whisper White card stock.

Stamping with a variety of the snowflake stamps and both corresponding inks was fun –it was completely random!

You can see the shimmery snowflakes?

I used the Blizzard Thinlit Die with Sparkle Glimmer Paper! 

Of course you can see the Rhinestone Jewel in the center of a few of the snowflakes–a little extra bling!

Celebrate the Good Stuff

Hi friends,

Today I'd like to share with you a card I tweaked from  the Occasions Catalog.

I simply LOVE the Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper –… this was so easy to make!

The base is Peekaboo Peach , then a layer of Lemon Lime Twist.

The top layer is a piece of the designer paper!

Then I added a strip of tear & tape adhesive and fan folded a piece of Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron ribbon!

How cute is that?

Attached two banners with the greeting, a few sequins and voila!

What do you think?

Improve with Wine

Hi Friends,

 I LOVE this stamp set – Half Full -designed by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator,  Linda Bauwin!

When a Demonstrator surpasses $1,000,000 in sales she/he gets to DESIGN their own set!

How cool is that!!!!!

And I love the cards we just made at my class on Saturday!

For this one, we used a  base of Crumb Cake card stock. Then a layer of Very Vanilla and topped off with another layer of Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and THEN a Gold Foil Snowflake with fresh Fig and Gold Metallic Edge ribbons!

A little stamping, cutting  and Wink of Stella and voila!

What do you think?

Of course this was copied/tweaked from a card in Stampin' Up!

Check this one out and then come back this Wednesday to see the second card we made!
