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! Farmhouse Christmas!

Hi Friends,

When I first saw this Stampin’ Up! Farmhouse Christmas stamp set, it reminded me of the town I grew up in.

The Ice Man, Fish Man, Rag Man and dairy farmers ALL had pick ups just like this one!

And I remember at Christmas, trees were delivered and picked up in this same truck.

Stampin' Up! handmade Christmas card using Farmhouse Christmas  When I saw this stamp set, I KNEW I had to have it!

First I took  a base of Cherry Cobbler then layered a piece of Mossy Meadow on top.

I did run that layer through the Big Shot with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder.

Using the Festive Farmhouse DSP, I added a strip to balance the Mossy Meadow layer.

Next I added a piece of Burlap ribbon and beveled and frayed the edges.

I colored the truck image with our Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Daffodil Delight.

Then I cut that image out with the Layering Ovals and backed it with a Cherry Cobbler layer.

Dimensionals popped it up for added interest!

Added a few Rhinestones for the headlights and of course pops of Wink of Stella –and ta-da!

  7. Next I used Soft Suede and added the sandy beach and the trees.
  8. Then using Old Olive, the mountains were stamped full strength and stamped off.

Glittery Thank You Daisy Delight

Hi Friends,

Where has the week gone????

Well to start off your fun weekend, take a look at this card!

I know you can't see ALL the glitz,  but it's there and I think it adds just the right amount to make this card a sparkling surprise!

Daisy-delight-thank-you-card-stampin-up-delightul-daisy-DSP

This card starts out on a thick Whisper White card base and then layered with Calypso Coral card stock and Delightful Daisy DSP. 

The square was cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies

Look closely!!! It adds the stitching!  How cool is that!?!? 

This set comes with circles, ovals and squares!

In my opinion, this set of Framelits is a MUST for any stamper who owns a BIG SHOT!

It's like a basic in my opinion! ( and if you don't own a Big Shot–why not? That too is a basic paper crafting tool!)

145372G

The Thank You sentiment was stamped onto the Whisper White square in Calypso Coral ink. 

The daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set was stamped onto Whisper White card stock with Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight ink and then punched out with the coordinating daisy punch. 

The gold faceted gems and 5/8" burlap ribbon give this card the perfect shabby chic look.

So what do YOU think??

Wouldn't a set of these make a very nice gift for one of your friends???

Easey-peasey and made with YOUR hands and from YOUR heart!

Check out this video –you can change up the DSP with any of these!

Options, options options!

 

Any of these can be purchased 24/7 in my online store.

Hugs,
