THREE IN A ROW

A big welcome to you!  What would you put in these three jugs?  I wasn’t sure so just left them as they are.

They were coloured with our fabulous Stampin’ Blends (Smokey Slate combo) and touched up with a little of the Frost White Shimmer Paint that is in the Holiday Catalogue (page38 bottom left).  I used a tiny piece of a Stampin’ Sponge to add it.

The layout for this card follows along with the Freshly Made Sketches layout for this week.

Those greeting tabs were attached using the new and fun Galvanized Clips and finished off with a small bow.  Love It!

Check out the list of products that were used.

LOVELY BOUQUET

Hello and I hope that you had a great weekend!  We enjoyed beautiful fall weather although it was a little chilly in the mornings.  Fall is definitely here in northeastern BC!

Today’s lovely bouquet was created with the Country Home stamp set and the Galvanized Metallic Paper in the suite.

Freshly Made Sketches posted a great card layout to follow.

I found it a little challenging at first but finally got an idea “percolating”.  Our Stampin’ Write Markers were used to colour the bouquet by carefully combining colours to highlight the lovely fall colours that are abundant in my yard.

Here’s the list of products that I used.

YOU ARE THE HAPPY TO MY DAY

Hello and I hope that you are having a happy day!  I’m enjoying mine because I was playing with the beautiful Country Home stamp set again!

I didn’t get the deep emboss on another card that I wanted with the Galvanized Metal paper so used that piece for the tank.  All I did was stamp the image onto the paper using Jet Black Stazon in and then cut it out.

The CAS(E) this sketch layout was perfect for this idea and if you click on the picture you will see that I also used a bit of the Chicken Wire Elements over top of that piece of designer paper.

COUNTRY HOME SUITE

Hello from cold and a little snowy northeastern BC.  We were hit with a very early snowfall, even for here, so creating this card with the Country Lane Suite(page 43) helped to cheer me up!

I love everything about the Country Lane suite but my favourites by far have to be the Galvanized Metallic paper and the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing folder! TIP: When using this embossing folder, fold down the tab labelled “1” for a deeper image!

I was looking for a new card layout challenge and found the TGIF challenges blog for this layout.

I was just about to put everything together on the card and, by happy accident, found that the filigree die from the Flourish Thinlits die matches the design in the Tin Tile Embossing folder!  Yay!

ARE THESE THE COLOURS OF FALL?

A question for you – would you call the colours of the flowers in today’s card fall colours?

I hope so because that was what I was thinking while playing along with The Paper Players Colour Challenge.  Who says that Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and my choice, Mango Melody can’t be fall colours!

I used my go-to set, Oh, So Eclectic and matching dies to build that pretty bunch of fall flowers.  Seems that when I want to create flowers, that is the set that calls to me!

While we’re talking The Paper Players,  I was delighted to be chosen as one of the “Cut Above” on last week’s challenge.  These are the cuties that I posted.

Here’s the list of products that I used for today’s card.

AUTUMN HARVEST

I’m going from Christmas back to autumn with today’s card!  Just for the record, it’s definitely autumn up here in northeastern BC.  There’s a chill in the air and the leaves are turning colour!

I purchased the Falling For Leaves bundle from the Holiday catalogue an decided that it needed to be used so I could play along with the CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

It’s a simple but great layout which leaves many options.

That large leaf can be a bit of a challenge but I put the Stamparatus to work and stamped it first with Cajun Craze ink and then again with Versamark.  Then it was just a matter of sprinkling some Clear Emboss powder over it and setting it with the Heat Tool.  I decided to add a little colour so used the ink pads listed below and an Aqua Painter for that.

Here’s the list of products.

OH SO ECLECTIC STAMP SET FROM STAMPIN’ UP!

I’m finding that the Oh, So Eclectic stamp set and matching Thinlits are becoming a “go to” for me lately!  I really love the flower images and coloured a few for today’s card.

Of course I was inspired by the new challenge from What Will You Stamp(use the Oh, So Eclectic stamp set) as well as the layout from Freshly Made Sketches!

This layout shows a square card so I made mine a 4-1/2″ square.  I used the Shaded Spruce and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends to colour the flowers and stamped the leaves in Shaded Spruce ink.  Then it was easy to cut them out with the matching thinlits!  A few strategically placed pearls and we’re all set!

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

AN AUTUMN-THEMED CARD AND IT’S TIME TO REDEEM

Is it just me or did September jump over August to get here, lol!  We are already feeling the chill of autumn in northeastern BC so why not make a card that shows the changing leaves.

There’s nothing like a little copper emboss powder to show off those pretty leaves!  I also used a Stampin’ Sponge to add just a little hint of green!

Here’s the list of products that I used – AND – if you see anything that you need on this list you can use your August Bonus Days coupons to get them!

THERE’S ONLY 2 DAYS LEFT

Time is passing and I had to use the Blended Seasons Bundle one more time before it goes away!

Don’t you just love the copper embossing?  I decided to use some of the Brusho®Crystal Colour and an Aqua Painter to so I could emboss another of that beautiful spray of leaves.  Then all it took was a little patience to cut them out and arrange them over the greeting label.

There’s only 2 days left to add the Colour Your Season items to your crafting supplies! This includes the Blended Seasons Bundle is clear-mount and wood-mount as well as the 2nd assortment of Watercolor Pencils!  Visit my Website to place your order!

ON THE WATERFRONT

Happy day and welcome to the waterfront!  I thought that I’d use the Waterfront photopolymer stamp set since summer is slowly saying goodbye.

This was so easy to do with the inspiration from The Paper Players sketch.

As you can see, this sketch can be interpreted many different ways so I’m going to make another card with this layout.

There’s nothing like simple stamping to get those creative juices flowing!  Here’s the short list of the products that I used. 

I hope that you are enjoying the last days of summer and are ready to get some stamping done!
