Team Time fun with the Come to Gather Suite

Last week I held my monthly Team Meeting, it is one of my favorite days of the month. We gather, share, stamp, and enjoy time with each other. I’m blessed with a wonderful team that is also a great group of stampers. Because we all have been stamping for different lengths of time and have different styles, I always look forward to seeing what they have been creating.

Want to see? The theme for our swap this month was fall and none of the projects disappoint!

Here is a great treat box with a drawer that slides out

filled with a banana Twinkie, yum.

And a cute little sticky note holder using our Stitched Nested Label Dies.

And here is a quick and easy wrap for some mini chocolate bars – the sentiment is from the Painted Harvest stamp set found in our Annual Catalog.

And a few more cards

Pat created this next project using our Copper Embossing Powder and the trifold card measurements I shared with you earlier

And this final card uses our Gift of Fall Add On Note Card, the coordinating Paper Pumpkin stamp set, along with the Seasonal Layers Dies and Rectangle Stitched Dies.

I love the way that our Paper Pumpkin Kits coordinating with our products, allowing us to have even more options.

And of course every team meeting includes celebrating accomplishments, stamping, and learning new things too.

We’ll be heading off to our Stampin’ Up! #OnStage event this weekend, a first for many on the team, so you’ll want to stop back by to see what that’s all about. Stampin’ Up! events are always a lot of fun, a chance to meet others who love to stamp, and learn new things, and of course prize patrol is always a hit with everyone! Stampin’ Up! is always generous with its demonstrators.

To Every Season Thank You Card

I do love a stamp set that has great images for both cards and treats, add the fact that it has punches and it’s sure to be on my wish list. Today’s project is a thank you card that I’ve whipped up using the To Every Season Bundle’ fall option.

I’ve chosen to highlight our Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scallop Ribbon on this project since I love the look and feel of this ribbon AND I love the fact I can get it in all 5 of the 2019-2021 In Colors!

Here is the card I created for my November Thank You cards.

While right at the moment it feels like winter here in North Georgia with our 20 degree wake up this morning, it really is fall. In fact the leaves on the mountain sides are simply beautiful right now and were at their peak I think. After our late 90 degree weather and this early blast of arctic cold I think mother nature is a bit confused.

Any how would you like to see how I made this card? Why not check out my Video Tutorial?

Birds of a Feather

I’ve shared some projects with you before using the Birds of a Feather stamp set for Halloween, so today’s post is all about the non traditional image for Christmas. I think this set is great since it covers multiple holidays making it perfect for treats and such too!

It’s funny my men loved this chick, but it puzzled my daughter a bit when she first saw it on my Christmas cards. For me this little chick with it’s stocking cap was too cute to resist! One can never tell in my house hold – lol

Here are a couple of cards using the image and our Snowfall Accents Puff Paint (150691) for the trim on the cap which adds a bit of texture. I LOVE this stuff it is sooo much fun using it on projects!

Both of these cards use the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper (150437).

So what do you think? Love this little chick as much as I do? Why not check out this and other Holiday Catalog products in my Online Store. And if you don’t already have a Demonstrator and would like a 2019 Holiday Catalog you can email me at StampwithJini@gmail.com you name, address, and phone number and I’ll be happy to mail you one.

Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods Note Card Tutorial

The Winter Wonders Kit is a lot of fun to work with. It is filled with beautiful winter scenes and while I had pieces left over from the kit, I wanted to create a note card that just used the stamps. Here is what I came up with.

I simply took my Night of Navy spot and added the Coastal Cabana spot (from a past kit) and Poppy Parade Classic Ink. The punch makes the sentiment easy since and also adds some interest.

Clean and simple – a great winter card and since I used our Whisper White Note Cards, I had 20 card bases and envelopes to start crating with for just $7

Here is a quick video tutorial for you that I share how I did this card.

Using our Spectacular Bash Suite of Products it’s sure to make that special trick or treater smile when they open it.

How do you create this fold? Simply take a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card stock base and score it 2 1/8″ and then at 4 1/4″. Yep, it’s that simple!

Boo to You & More

There is a nip in the air now, and we’ve had some beautiful fall days so I thought I’d share with you some Halloween cards as the little trick or treaters will be knocking on our doors soon. My kids used to love playing dress up and I would sew their costumes so that they could play in them all year long. Anyhow, great memories but that was many moons ago… So here are some great cards that are a lot of fun for us grown ups who enjoy a bit of Halloween fun too.

This first card uses one of my favorite sets Birds of a Feather (150571) from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.

This stamp set includes 4 little chicks are dressed up for 4 different winter holidays which makes it a great set for those cards and treats we will be making!

And of course I’ve shared these adorable little monsters with you before from the Boo To You stamp set (150550) in an earlier post for a fun treat item.

And finally if you like a more realistic look for Halloween you’ll want to check out The Raven (150593) great for simple stamping since the art work is great all by itself.

The moon on this card was created by using a simple masking technique. Cut out a circle from a sticky note place it where you’d like and then use a Stampin’ Sponge to add ink. Remove the sticky note when you’re done and you have this great moon. So simple, but it creates a great effect!

So what do you think? Like these cards? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which you like the best? Then stop by my Online Store and get yours.
