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.

THE GRATEFUL SQUIRREL

Today’s card features a little squirrel nibbling on an acorn.

As you can see, I went with neutral colours on this and I love the background stream.  Since there are no matching dies for this set, I did “fussy-cut” the squirrel image.

I also used the “masking” technique to get just the one word for the sentiment.  Just place tape over the words(or images) that you do not want, ink and then remove the tape before stamping.

The card layout comes from this week’s sketch from The Paper Players.

ONE AMAZING KID

I love my grandchildren to pieces and so created a card that sends out the perfect thought!

All it took was two stamp sets and some of the bright and fun Dinoroar designer series paper!  Also, The Paper Players posted the perfect challenge to inspire me to get my thoughts onto some cardstock!

SO TINY-SO SMALL

Hello there and welcome!  Today’s card isn’t tiny but does quote one of the greetings from the Wildly Happy Cling stamp set.  This set is the perfect set to create sweet baby cards and I love it!

It fits perfectly with The Paper Players colour challenge to use black and white with one other colour.  Well, I added two extra colours because that tiny flower needed leaves for gosh sake!

I took the opportunity to use the Heirloom Frames dies and 3D Embossing folders to set off that lovely mom with her baby too!  Love It, now I just need someone to have a baby so I can send it to them!

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!

BLUE BIRDS OF FRIENDSHIP

Today’s card is all about blue birds and friendship.  I pulled out the beautiful Free As A Bird cling stamp set, some Stampin’ Blends, a piece of the lovely Bird Ballad designer series paper and went to work.

Aren’t they just the cutest birds ever?!  They are so easy to colour a look great sitting on that branch!

The colours I used come from this week’s colour challenge from The Paper Players, 

so I used a piece of the 1/8″ Blueberry Bushel grosgrain ribbon to finish it off.

Here’s the full list of products used.

FOR A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY

There’s nothing like the happiness of daisies to celebrate a special birthday and today’s card highlights that happy bloom.

I added a little help with two more stamp sets, the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle for the leaves and Special Celebrations for the birthday greeting!  I’m playing along with The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge for this card.

I added the wood look by using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing folder and, to bring out the grain in the wood, added a little Crumb Cake ink and lightly sponged it over the design.

To get the leaves, I stamped the large magnolia image onto Old Olive cardstock and then cut them out.  They were placed on the back of the layered daisy using Mini Glue dots.

Here’s the list of products used.

SO SAY THE BIRDS

The birds have spoken, thanks for being you!  Today’s card features the Free As A Bird Cling stamp set with a touch of the Bird Ballad designer series paper.

I had great fun colouring these sweeties with our Stampin’ Blends and then fussy cut each one out to be placed just so!  Then why not heat emboss that great friend greeting too!  It was all put together by following along with this great sketch from The Paper Players.

SUMMER VACATION

It’s that time of the year when thoughts turn to enjoying the summer weather and where to go for summer vacation.  We are always excited to visit our cabin by the lake and today’s card paints a small picture of that.

It also fits in well with The Paper Players challenge.

The Waterfront stamp set is perfect, but I wasn’t sure if that little building was an outhouse or a cabin, lol, but decided that yes, it’s definitely a cabin!  There are quite a few colours on this card to build the scene starting with the new InColor, Seaside Spray.  It’s perfect for this scene.

TIME FOR TAGS HOST SET

Today’s card features the new Time For Tags stamp set that is available when you earn Host Rewards.  It’s so cute that I just had to create this card with it.

I used a piece from the new Bird Ballad Designer Series paper and pulled out the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to make the tiny hearts accents.  I wanted to add a subtle background on the white, so used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to add stripes spaced 1/4″ apart.  Click on the photo to see them up close.
The little giraffe was coloured Stampin’ Write Markers in Pool Party, Calypso Coral and So Saffron from the Subtles collection.

This layout is from The Paper Players, check out the ver versatile sketch below.
