PUMPKINS FOR FALL

Well, it is feeling so much like fall out there so why not focus on some great-looking pumpkins!

The Come to Gather Designer Series paper package contains some great designs and I put my focus on those lovely pumpkins for this card.  Well, I had to add some fall-coloured leaves as well so I could show off the new Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic ink. That’s a mouthful but the ink is fabulous to work with and adds just the right amount of “fall feels”!  So why stop at leaves, why not add a copper-inked wreath as well?!

TIP:  Make sure to check out all of the Delicata Metallic inks on page 16 of the Holiday Catalogue!

The original plan was to play along with The Paper Players colour challenge and I think that I did get all of the colours in.  Plus a few extras, lol!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY

“Days are beautiful that begin with you”!  What better way to say that than with this lovely greeting card.

It’s such a simple way to send that greeting to someone that you love!

I started off with a card base of Petal Pink and matched the flower using Petal Pink Classic ink.  The punch that goes along with the Floral Essence Bundle makes creating perfect flowers really easy! TIP:  The Leaf Punch (144667) matches this stamp set perfectly too!

The Stitched Nested Labels Dies were used to cut the background designer paper (Perennial Essence) as well as the greeting label.

I’m happily off to create a few more cards with this lovely bundle so have a great day and Happy Stamping to you too!

A BRIGHT BIRTHDAY GREETING

Wow, today I’m going from neutral to really bright with this happy birthday card.  Warning – you may want to wear sunglasses, lol!

I wasn’t fooling – this one is bright!  I played around with the Pigment Sprinkles and a Stampin’ Spritzer to get these cheery blooms just right!

The image was first stamped using Jet Black Stazon ink and then I carefully sprinkled the powders so the right colour would end up as close to where I wanted it as possible.  I used Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo and then very carefully and gently spritzed.  All-in-all not too bad for the finish.

I was following along with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout so decided to go all in on bright and used the Daffodil Delight Pigment Sprinkles for the background.  Wow!

Here’s the list of products used.  Make sure to check out the Pigment Sprinkles, they are so much fun to use!

DOUBLE THE HAPPINESS

Hi and welcome!  Today’s card features the Varied Vases Photopolymer stamp set and matching Vases Builder Punch.

It is so sweet with those trailing blooms and I’m sure will be received with delight!  To get those flowers and vases placed just right, I used a post-it note to cover the designer paper while stamping the flower images.

I followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge for the layout which worked perfectly with my idea.

Here’s the list of products used.

Happy day to you and Happy Stamping!

LOVE & JOY ON YOUR DAY

Happy Monday to you and welcome!  Today’s card is about a day of Love & Joy wether it be a wedding, anniversary or a birthday!

I played around with the Woven Heirlooms Bundle for this (the sentiments in the stamp set are truly beautiful) and added some interest with the Flourish Dies and Highland Heather cardstock.

TIP:  I learned when using the Woven Heirlooms dies and 3D embossing folders that you need to cut the shape out first and then place them into the embossing folders.  This will give a much deeper pattern impression.  They cannot be used at the same time.

SIMPLY THE BEST

Today’s card is something a little different from my usual style.  I did a little stamp spritzing for this one.

So, I inked up the flowers from the A Little Lace cling stamp set and then used the Stampin’ Spritzer on the stamp before applying it to the paper.  I used Calypso Coral and Blueberry Bushel inks for this.

TIP:  Definitely used Shimmery White cardstock for this technique as it take water well and doesn’t pill.

Then, that imaged need a frame so I used two of the Stitched Rectangle dies to make the Calypso Coral frame and adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To keep the colour the same, I used a piece of Shimmery White to create the card base as well.

Here’s the list of products used.

Enjoy and Happy Stamping to you!

HIDDEN FLOWERS

Today’s card uses the Parcels & Petals Bundle again!  It’s so easy to use and I created this pretty card with it.

I was checking out Pinterest and found a card that used a die to create an interesting edge so tried it myself.  The Seasonal Layers dies have a great scalloped piece and that it was I used to make two separate layers for the card front.

The flower image was stamped onto Whisper White with Highland Heather Ink.  Then I added more by “stamping off” so the other blooms would be a softer colour.

Then it was just a matter of picking the perfect greeting and putting the card together.  I used a lot of Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Grid Paper for placement of the pieces.

Here’s the list of products used.

MAKE A CUTE TREAT BOX

Did you know that the Parcels & Petals bundle has a great die that will make a really cute treat box?  I combined that bundle with the Dino Days Bundle to create this bright and simple treat box.

I love those dinosaur images and the matching Dinoroar designer paper!  This box was easy to put together and there are a few videos on YouTube that will help you.

Once the recipient has removed the band, sweet treat await!

Here’s the supply list for you.

HELLO THERE

Well hello and welcome!  I felt that his Monday needed some bright flowers so I pulled out the Band Together Bundle and the Pressed Petals Specialty designer paper and got to work.

In case you haven’t noticed, I really enjoy colouring with our fabulous Stampin’ Blends and chose Lovely Lipstick for those bright flowers.  The dies that go with the Band Together set include shapes for leaves so I cut out quite a few to add to those blooms.

There’s a little bit of everything on today’s card and it’s all listed below for you.

THE BEST DAD IN THE WORLD

Hello and welcome!  I’ve been thinking of my Dad a lot lately (we lost him a few years ago) and was inspired to create this card.

I pulled out the simple A Good Man cling stamp set for this and, to follow along with The Paper Players challenge, kept it clean and simple.  My Dad was a tall man, 6’6″ so whenever he picked me up I felt that I could see for miles!  And, yes, I once had red hair, lol.

Here’s the list of products used.  It’s a long one as I used many different colours of Stampin’ Blend Markers.

Thanks for listening to my share about my Dad today, you are the best!  Happy Stamping!
