#imbriningbirthdaysback October’s Cards

Each month I send out Birthday Cards to family, friends and you! So I thought I’d share with you my this month’s card and a tutorial for it.

I was really feeling fall when I designed this card and it’s reflected in the colors – don’t you love the way the Painted Autumn stamp set makes the image feel water colored?

I’ve also made a tutorial for you in case you’d like to make some too. After all who doesn’t love getting snail mail in their box? There is nothing better than a hand stamped birthday card,  right?

Tips for using the Painted Harvest Stamp Set

Today’s card is made using the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and there are a couple of things that will make you more successful when you use this set. So today not only will I be sharing the tutorial for the Holiday Catalog Kick Off Make n Take, but I’ve also got a little video for you sharing some basics for this stamp set.

First here is the card that we made.

I love the way that this set has a built in watercolor feel to it – and it has quickly become one of my favorites to use with it’s pretty font. I used Fresh Fig for the flowers on this card and love the richness of the color.

Want the instructions to make this card? Well here is the tutorial

The flowers are  fun to stamp, but I recommend completing one before moving on to the next so you remember your lining up point easier.

Happy Scenes for Fall

Check out these two great fall cards using the Happy Scenes stamp set (139821) and the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies (139666).

This first card was given to me by Joanne. I love the way she used the Festive Fireside Framelits (139668) to create the cat’s silhouette. And can you guess the name of the striped card stock she used?

Happy Scenes SC swap Holiday 2015 (2)

If you guessed the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper (139585) your right!

This second card I made during my team retreat and it uses Black and Gold Embossing Powder  along with the new Gold Cording Trim (139618).

Happy Scenes swap BMS Retreat Holiday 2015 (1)

We used our Aqua Painters (103954) to create the sky’s water color look.

Fun Autumn Wooden Elements

Have you seen the fun Autumn Wooden Elements in our Holiday Catalog on page 46? I love these fun little wooden pieces.

For All Things

Here is a card that I made using the little oak leaf. I love them natural, but thought it would be fun to try and add some color this time. Adding color was really simple to do. I simply grabbed one of my Stampin’ Sponges and sponged. Yep, it was that easy!

Supplies:

Stamp Set: For All Things (135152/135155)

Inks: Hello Honey (133643), Tangelo Twist (133646), and Island Indigo (126986)

Autumn Accents

It’s really beginning to feel like fall here with the latest cold front that has rolled in – now I’m just waiting for the first frost here in the North Georgia Mountains so my allergies will stop being such a pain. I definitely have a love hate relationship with fall, if you know what I mean.

Today’s cards are three more swaps that I’ve received, all of them use colors that make you think of autumn. Isn’t it cool how colors are so connected to memories and feelings of times and events?

Seasonally Scattered Stamp divas swap Sept 2014 (1)

I really like the White Vellum card stock (101856) and the Autumn Accents Die (127812) that was used to create the leaves on this first card. The vellum has been sponged and our scoring tool was used to create the veining. Cool right?

Anna created this second card using just our Lullaby Designer Series Paper (133695) along with the Petite Pairs stamp set (128706/122497).

Autumn Accents Die stamp divas swap Sept 2014 (3)

Can you see all the texture that this card has? Created simply by using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder (127821) and 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (132140). And of course the choice of Designer Series Paper also add to the feel of the texture.

This last card was from Lorraine and uses the Wondrous Wreath stamp set (135047) and Wonderful Wreath Framelits (135851). I really like the way she turned a simple square shape onto it’s side to give it a whole different look. How about you?

So Thankful

I’m finding all kinds of fun ways to use my Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set. Last night I created this colorful fall card using the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper.

PL Holiday Cheer So thakful Card

So what do you think? Bright and colorful – I thought it was a great way to send a thank you card or holiday greeting.

I simply used the top portion of my designer series paper and cut off the cute little monsters at the bottom to use for another project. Added some of the Bermuda Bay card stock that I had trimmed with my Tiny Wave Rotary Wave Blade as an accent and then stamped my focal point and voila I was done. So quick and easy!

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Project Life Holiday Cheer (135188)

Inks: Bermuda Bay (131171), Crushed Curry (131173), and Tangerine Tango Classic Ink (126946)

Paper: Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper (135819), Tangerine Tango (111349), Bermuda Bay (131197), and Whisper White Card Stock (100730)

Hello Fall!

Well there was a nip in the air yesterday morning as I went to the grocery store – it was the first time I pulled on a light weight jacket this fall. Aaaahhh fall  – the cool nights and cooler days. It will be  almost 80 here today – so fall is such a mixed bag! It’s a good day for painting doors I guess – I just need to get motivated and my stamps are calling me. LOL

Todays card is one I stamped after looking out the window for a bit yesterday. With the wind, the leaves were rolling across the yard.

Fall Fest

This card is clean and simple and I love the technique of using the darker layer  and then the smaller Whisper White card on the top. It allows for that pop of color without having to create an inside panel for writing.

I stamped this card using Tangelo Twist and Crushed Curry – two great fall colors. I used the Bermuda Bay for the sentiment and base. A bit untraditional, but I love the color. So what do you think?

For All Things & World Card Making Day

Did you know this past Saturday was World Card Making Day? Well it was, and so today I thought I’d show you one of the 12 cards we stamped on Saturday during my card making event. Everyone who attended was able to make 12 cards for all different kinds of occasions.

world card making day (6)

This card is made using the For All Things stamp set . I love the colors of fall and as I sit here looking out my window I can already see the Crushed Curry color showing up in the trees across the street. We’ve had a real cold snap here in North Georgia this past week so I’m sure there will be a lot more color soon and the leaf watchers will be heading for the mountains to enjoy the fall color.

Here is a picture from the World Card Making Day event on Saturday.

We had a lot of fun visiting while we stamped together. I’m so blessed to have such a great group of ladies!
