Bring on Fall

I am so ready for fall!  This is the fifth card that I have made with the Blended Seasons bundle!  I used the cut out from my previous card to create this simple fall card!  We are making it tonight at my Sweet & Simple card class!

To create this beauty:

  1. Stamp the leaves with Early Espresso ink randomly on Soft Suede cardstock.
  2. Stamp thank you on a Crumb Cake piece and run it through the Big Shot with the smallest of the Stitched Seasons label die.  (I centered the sentiment more towards the top to leave room for the embellishments)
  3. On a scrap of Very Vanilla, use the Watercolor Assortment #2 and color with Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Granny Apple Green.
  4. Cut out 2 leaves and use Wink of Stella to blend the watercolors.
  5. Tie a bow with 2 pieces of Linen Thread.
  6. Dimensionals were used to pop up the sentiment piece and glue dots for the leaves & Gold Glimmer paper.

Soft Dandelions

watermarked8(2018-08-08-1624)

Don’t you just love dandelions!  It’s such a sweet childhood memory for most!  When I saw this set in the Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalog-it was on my top 3 list!  I needed a technique for my stamp club this week, so I used the plastic wrap technique! It’s such a simple technique and it was perfect to create a soft background for this stamp set!

  1. Use 2 to 3 re-inker colors and place a few drops into the lid of it’s corresponding color.
  2. Use an aqua painter with rubbing alcohol in it and mix a few drops into the ink.
  3. Wad up some plastic wrap and dab into the color.  Randomly smoosh it onto Glossy White Cardstock.

I then stamped the images in Versa Mark and then Silver Embossing powder.  Once it is heat set you can adhere it to the Whisper White mat.  I paper saved the sentiment on the Pool Party base color and punched it out with Classic Label punch.  Then I ran it through the Big Shot with the Tufted Embossing folder.

Swirly Bird Wreath

GKOQ5580

I have seen a ton of posts about how to use the Stamparatus to make a wreath pattern with ease!  Dawn Griffin has a wonderful tutorial that helped spark my creation!  I am holding a class on how to use the Stamparatus on August 5th!  There are so many wonderful tips and tricks that this tool can make stamp placement a piece of cake!

I started off with the Tea Room Specialty DSP for a fun color combination.  I used one of the fun patterned papers from the pack.  Then I used a strip of Crushed Curry to accent the side of the Costal Cabana card base.

I then used the stampartus and a template that I made using the Layering Squares dies.  I am in the process of making a video to show how fun you can have with this technique. GBDH4692

I followed the wreath with the Classic Label punch and a strip of Blackberry Bliss just a little bigger than the width and length of the punch.  Then I trimmed off the sides using the puched piece as a guide.  I then finished it off with Basic Rhinestones and some White Baker’s Twine.

Love you to pieces

love you to pieces1

I had to have the Love You to Pieces Bundle when I saw the new catalog!  I have a few friends who have children with Autism that I would love to make these for!  I have a few other designs floating around in my head as well!  I can’t wait to get back into the stamp room!

What I really like about this bundle is the Puzzle Pieces Thinlits that coordinate with the stamp set!  Stampin’ Up! now offers Embossing Pads that turn your Thinlits/Framelits into dry embossed images!  So you can create even more with this bundle!

I used 4 pieces of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 squares of the following colors: Real Red, Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushell, and Daffodil Delight. I lined them up as shown below-makes for one pass through the Big Shot. how to puzzle

Boy, that close up of my clear plates makes me want to order some new ones!  Wow!

There are a few days left to order the Creative Class to Go!  Click on the June 2018 FREE Creative Class to GO for more information!

Also, don’t forget about the hostess code for this month!  june 2018 hostess code

Impressed by Abstract Impressions

final-14

I finally was able to play with some of my new goodies at our retreat a couple weeks ago!  This card was one of the 3 projects our stamp club made!  If features a new color, Soft Sea Foam, as well as Abstract Impressions stamp set!  It makes the most beautiful floral cards!  The DSP is from the new Garden Impressions 6×6 pack, which coordinates with the Metallic Ribbon Combo.  The combo has the new Shaded Spruce color and Petal Pink that both have glimmer weaved in each.

Did you notice the stitching?  It came from the new Stitched Labels Framelits!!  There are so many fun shapes that include stitching that add that special texture to your creations!  final-15

I love the deep, rich color of the Shaded Spruce and Blueberry Bushel!  The color on the pad case just doesn’t do it justice!  The flowers were made with 3 colors: first was Blushing Bride, then Calypso Coral, and lastly, Melon Mambo.   I did finish it off with some Wink of Stella!

June also marks the Creative Class To Go’s return!!  I am almost done typing it up and it’s a great set of cards!  It features the new Lily Pad Lake bundle!  Look out for details on how to get your FREE card kit June 1st!
