HOORAY FOR YOU

I’m going to an all occasion card for today.  So I used the Quite Curvy Bundle(156228)!  One still needs to keep their “other” card stash ready to go after all!

As you can see, it is quite clean so those pretty little birds could take centre stage!  I used the “stamping off” technique to give them a bit of background to sit on.  My complimentary colour of choice is Mango Melody to add that pop!

I followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge for this clean layout.

Here’s the list of products used.  Just click on the picture to go directly to my Online Store.

I hope that these little birds bring a smile to your face and encourage you to go get some stamping done!

Happy day to you!

ONE IN A MILLION

Today’s card features the new Quite Curvy Bundle with it’s super fun “you’re one in a million” greeting.

It’s a fairly simple card that showcases the curved leaf image and greeting and would make a great “guy” card!  I also used the Stacked Stone(152556) background stamp to create that large tag.  This is my submission to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Here’s the list of products used.

The Quite Curvy Bundle is just one of the choices for this new Curvy Celebration promotion that runs right through to January 4.  It includes the Curvy Christmas bundle and some beautiful Classic Christmas 6″x6″ designer paper.  You can check it out HERE.

Happy Stamping!

NEW TO ME

Hello and welcome to a brand new week!  Today, I’m introducing a “new to me” bundle that I just had to add to my collection!  These lovely flowers are appropriate for any season, don’t you think?

The bundle is called Ornate Style(154119) and the dies are really, really beautiful!  Take a look….

…I love this picture that shows how each die will look when it’s cut out!

Now, you may not recognize the sentiment and that’s because it’s in a stamp set bundle(Quite Curvy) that will be available to you in November.  I loved the message in this particular greeting and had to add it to the card!

TODAY’S PLAN

Do you plan out your days on a regular basis?  I try to but sometimes one just has to stop and eat chocolate,lol!

I’ve been enjoying using the Plaid Tidings designer paper(153527) and love this colour with my chocolates!  The designer paper is part of the Sale going on for the month of October and you can pick it up for 15% off right now!

I had a little fun with heat embossing for the chocolates and used a piece of our Adhesive Sheets to make attaching the word so much easier.

Here is the list of products used.  Note: I did not list the punch I used for the sentiment as it is retired – my bad!

BEAUTIFUL FALL FOLIAGE

Wow, it’s the Friday of our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and our beautiful fall foliage is showing it’s colourful splendor!  So, why not create a card with just a touch of those colours!

I started with a card base of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock and used the Subtle Embossing folder to add a little texture.  The next step was to ruffle through my unfinished projects bowl and voilå, found some leaves from the Forever Fern Bundle!  There were added to accent that lovely piece from the Gilded Autumn specialty designer paper!  A simple card with a cheery hello!

Then I followed along with the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches for the rest!

THE MOOSE IN FALL

Hi and welcome!  I’m back to fall for today’s card.  Our yard sees lots of visits from deer and moose, so I pulled out the returning favourite, Merry Moose Bundle(153015)!

This is a “2-step” stamp so it’s easy to get the details for the moose image!  Use the Stamparatus(146276)* for easy placement of the 2 colours!

I wanted this guy/girl to be surrounded by trees and leaves so add the piece of designer paper from the Gilded Autumn package. And, a little embossing with the Woodland Embossing folder for the background.

There, The Paper Players theme challenge achieved!

BUTTERFLIES ON MY MIND

I’m thinking butterflies for today’s card and the Butterfly Gala stamp set and matching Butterfly Duet Punch joined in!

Do you have an “unused pieces bowl”?  I do and pulled out the medallion die cut so those butterflies could sit prettily on it!  I couldn’t leave the card front plain so it was embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder to add just a touch of texture.

I wanted to play along so pulled layout from the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

YOU MEAN SO MUCH

Hi and welcome, your visits to my blog mean a lot and I thank you.  Today’s card is a pretty tribute to my visiters.

This card has several different colours to it and was a bit of a challenge as I don’t usually use these particular colours together.  I chose to use the Forever Blossoms stamp set(151457) and stamped that lovely spray in Bumblebee.  There is a very light wash of Seaside Spray on the background and I used our new Water Painters(151298) to apply the colour.

This idea came from the FabFri Colour Challenge.

MY GUYS

Hi there.  Today I am paying tribute to my guys, Max and Riley.  Max was our Cairn Terrier and Riley our orange tabby cat!

I do miss their footsteps and snuggles!  They had an amenable relationship most of the time, lol, but there were other times that made life very interesting and hilarious!

The Paper Players challenge came at just the right time, when my guys were on my mind, so I played along!

Here’s the list of products used for you.  Click on any picture and it will take you directly to my online store.

MORE SUNFLOWERS TO ADD A LITTLE JOY TO YOUR DAY

Since I was playing around with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle(154065), I decided that the smaller bloom needed its own card.

So, I coloured two and put them together with pieces from the Gilded Autumn Specialty designer paper.  The Gold trim and ribbon from the Forever Greenery combo pack was perfect for the finish!

TIP: for the sentiment, I used a piece of Adhesive Sheets(152334) on the metallic paper so it would be easier to adhere the thinner word.  I highly recommend trying it as it makes it much easier to glue those tiny words without the mess of glue!

Here’s the list of products used.
