Lots of Leaves

Today’s post will be a quick one I’ve got a full day that will end with getting to watch my daughter’s band doing their Journey show at an exhibition. So without further ado….

Today’s card highlights the lovely Lots of Leaves stamp set. This set is one I couldn’t resist with the large bold images and coordinating dies.

Originally I thought this would be a great for making masculine cards and then I looked at the sentiments closer. The sentiments are lovely don’t you think? Something for every occasion, making this set a year round one simply by changing up the colors.

The images as you can see have a wonderful shading to them adding depth and texture. And the dies are great since you can use them in to create positive image projects like this or use the left over negative image to create even more projects. And you’re going to love the stitching on the outside of the negative images!

Why not stop by my online store and check it out? I think you’ll enjoy this set.

And a quick reminder today – we have just a few days left to stock up on our Designer Series Papers and save 15%. This special promotion ends on Saturday, October 31st!

Beautiful Autumn & More

Today I’m sharing a couple of cards with you using the Beautiful Autumn Bundle (155189) and more. This bundle has quickly become a favorite of mine with it’s lovely sentiments and selection of images that can be punched out. There are a great size for treats also, which I love to make too and makes it a versatile option for the fall season.

This first card uses the bold color pallet from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (153527) that it uses. I love the way this little stack of 6×6 pattern can be used from fall all the way through the end of winter due to the selection of colors in it.

And here is another card using the same stamp set, but this time it has been teamed up with the beautiful Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (153520).

The sentiment has been cut out using the Tasteful Labels Dies (152886). If you haven’t invested in this set of dies you’ll want to since it is wonderful for all kinds of projects! It contains all kinds of shapes and sizes making it a great addition to your collection!

And today’s final card add these wonderful embossed leaves that were cut out with the Gathered Leaves Dies (150662).

Turnovers

Over the next few days I’ll be sharing cards with you using sets that you can use for multiple fall and winter events. Sets like these give you more bang for your buck they also all use punches which make crafting quick, easy and economical too.

Today’s card uses the Turnover stamp set (154873) found on page 60 of the Mini Catalog. If you haven’t heard of our Reversible stamp sets you’re going to love this new stamping option as each stamp gives you 2 images! How cool is that?

It’s so easy. There are images on both sides of the stamp! Which is great since it gives you even more stamping choices. While these two cards use the line image the reverse side gives you a two step option and the ability to add color quickly and easily with this set.

This first card is a Halloween card and uses a clean and quick layout that highlights the image and sentiment from the Hallows Night Magic stamp set (153356).

It also uses the fun Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (153517) and the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (152494). And this next card uses the ornament images.

Using a quick and easy Designer Series Paper technique to show you both sides of the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (153492) to draw your eye to the sentiment. A couple of quick swishes with your coordinating Stampin’ Blends and your done and ready for holiday card sending!

Beautiful Autumn Thank You Card Tutorial & More

Want a bright cheerful fall thank you card? The Poppy Parade just screens maple leaves to me with it’s bright cheerful color. Team it up with the In Color Bumble Bee and I think you have a winner. Check out this card I made for this month’s Thank You cards.

Makes you smile, right? I’ve whipped up a quick video and pdf tutorial for you so you can bring a smile to someone’s day too! Why not check it out?

Beautiful Autumn Thank You Card Video Tutorial

I love having the measurements printed out so I can refer to them also, so here is a PDF for you. And of course all my tutorials include the link to the video on them for easy reference when you are ready to craft.

Beautiful Autumn Thank You Card Tutorial PDF

Have you ever wondered why I include both the ink pad AND refill number in my PDFs? Well back when I started stamping I only purchased the ink pads and then when I needed the ink refill I didn’t have them. Lesson learned, now I always suggest purchasing them together – no headaches when you need to them and are in the middle of the project your making. AND even more fun there are some great techniques that use those reinkers by themselves too!

Enjoy and you’ll want to make sure to keep reading until the end for the supply list.

Loyal Leaves

This past weekend brought a lot of new color to my hillside behind the house – fall is definitely here and here is a great card to make for any occasion this fall.

Done in Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze these colors are perfect for the fall. And this card has a fun way of opening too.

The focal point was stamped and then colored with our Watercolor Pencils. This technique gives you a lot of blending options which is a great choice for adding colors for this lovely leaf image. Use the Watercolor pencils wet or dry like this card does and you can still create a wonderful blend of colors with simply layering of different colors.

So what do you think? Why not leave me a comment and let me know. Then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a card tutorial with you using the Beautiful Autumn stamp set.
