Do you have a love of science? I know I do from my first exposure in my middle school science class. I can remember the fun of creating peppermint candy canes during class in 8th grade. We had no clue what we were creating during one of our labs but what a fun way to get us excited about doing experiments? Since then I’ve had a friend become a science teacher and this set made me think of her immediately. The It’s a Science stamp set (161554)
Today’s cards use the Rustic Crate images for Autumn. This set is one of those with lovely images and sentiments that you can use through the fall, winter and even spring. Simply switch out the image that fills the crate or use it on it’s own.
Today’s cards use the fall image on it’s own. This first card teams up two of our In Colors, Copper Clay and Pebbled Path.
Stampin’ Blends have been used to create bold color on the image and a bit of color has been added to the panel using our Blending Brushes (153611). A bit of the Burlap Ribbon found in our Combo Pack (160386) has been used to add a bit of texture and the crate image has been stamped in Pecan Pie to create a tone on tone back drop.
So what do you think? Can you see this Bundle as a choice for your crafting needs? Why not stop by my Online Store and check this and other choices for your fall crafting needs?
As promised today I’m sharing more cards that I received in my recent swap using the All About Autumn Suite Collection (162193). This Suite might be just the thing you need for your fall creations.
Whether you need a fall birthday card or Thanksgiving card this Suite is filled with the colors and textures of the season. Here are a few cards to show you just how much versatility is in this Suite. This first card uses the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper (162178) to create a quick and easy card for a birthday with just 3 little strips.
The leaves are cut from the foil side of this pack of paper adding a lovely bit of shine and the very popular Adhesive Backed Speckled Dots (162191) add a coordinating pop of color. This next card uses simple stamping using Crumb Cake, Blackberry Bliss, and Crushed Curry.
The All About Autumn Designer Series Paper (162178) is used in the background to add a bit more texture and color. Fall teaches us change can be lovely – I love this sentiment, as our season changes as children it’s one of our first lessons.
Enjoy the cooler temperatures as we dive into the month of October, can you believe it’s just a few days away?
The nights have been in the 50’s here and it is getting dark earlier now that Fall has begun so the leaf watchers won’t be far behind here in our neck of the woods, our peak is typically late October or early November so it will be interesting to see how this years weather has effected our timing. One never knows what Mother Nature will bring.
The cards I’m sharing with you today all use the Autumn Leaves Bundle (162186) that I used for last Friday’s card tutorial and while each use a very different color palette they all give you that fall feel. This first card uses the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper (162178) that will be back in stock on the 25th as a back drop.
A quick and easy card that uses Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie to evoke those feelings of cooler days. And this next card uses Crushed Curry, Copper Clay and Pretty Peacock along with a bit of foil to create a more elegant feel.
It also uses the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder (162189) and All About Autumn Designer Series Paper (162178). This time the Deckled Circle Dies (162286) has been used to cut out a piece of the lovely copper foil paper as a back drop to add the leaf too and make it shine.
Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more cards using this fun Suite. And remember while the Suite may be on back order you can order the components separately. Only the Bundle has a 10% discount and it should be available again on the 25th.
With fall officially starting tomorrow I thought it would be a perfect time to share my latest tutorial with you – this time for a elegant card that uses our Designer Series Paper that some wonderful foiling in them. The foil add a touch of elegance that I thought went perfectly with this card.
And a quick and simple angling technique with the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder (162189) that mimics the strip of Designer Series Paper add a bit of texture and interest. Check out my Tutorial that I made for you sharing this card.
And of course why not a PDF? It includes all the measurements and a complete supplyt list for the card.
Did you know my classes include PDFs for you too? No more hanging on to the card so you can recreate it. Now you can print it off or save it so you have everything at your finger tips when you’re ready to create!
There was a little nip to the air this morning when I got up as it was in the 50’s. Yep, 50’s you can defiantly feel fall is on it’s way and with it our fall leaf watchers, apple stands, and pumpkins will be popping up for folks to enjoy on their trip to the mountains. So I thought it would be a great time to share a couple of great swaps with you that I received using the Pick of the Patch Bundle (162201).
This first card uses the set in a traditional way and teams it up with some leaves from the Autumn Leaves Dies.
And this next card uses the set in a non traditional way. I love the thinking out of the box that is used with this card to create flowers!
I’m a bit later sharing with you today, but it’s been rather crazy day with lots of appointments. I didn’t want to miss sharing these fun Halloween cards tho since the holiday is right around the corner.
The Them Bones Suite Collection (162222) is filled with fun images, dies, paper, and glow in the dark elements! Yes, GLOW in the dark, wow can that not be fun to create with? And whether you choose a few items from the collection or get the suite you’re sure to be able to create lots of fun items for your little ghosts and goblins this fall. Check out these fun cards using this suite.
Clever, right? This set of dies has 3 different shapes that are wonderful for all kinds of projects, even coffins! The bit of Black & White Gingham Ribbon (156485) has been colored using our Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the project.
Fun? While the Suite is not available currently it will be back on the 25th or around then giving you plenty of time to get ready. And of course, you can always order the items separately since the 10% is for the Bag of Bones Bundle (162219) found in the Suite.
It’s Friday and that means a tutorial. This week I needed a birthday card for a friend who loves music and so I thought this card would be perfect for them. Bright and cheerful with a retro feel to it.. and it pops up to stand on their mantel too.
I originally designed this back in August and had thought about using it as a BackStage swap too, but then decided against it. You’re going to love the NEW Deckled Circle Dies (162286) they come in tons of sizes!
It has a nice little signature panel on the back that pulls in the music too.
Want to see how I made this card? I’ve whipped up a video tutorial when I was creating it and of course a PDF tutorial for you too. I’m just loving this pattern from the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper stack (161640) it’s designed to have patterns that work with all kinds of our stamp sets.
