Brightly Gleaming

Today’s cards all use the products from the Brightly Gleaming Suite Bundle found in our 2019 Holiday Catalog. I love the fact that this suite has punches which make multiple cards easy to do. And the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper doesn’t disappoint with its beautiful Copper Foil accents.

#imbringingbirthdaysback with Country Home

I’m on a roll with Country Home and loving the images colored with our Stampin’ Blends. Today’s card is one that I made to send out this week for my October birthdays. I wanted the feeling of autumn when I created this card so I reached for the Terracotta Tile and Pretty Peacock. Two of my favorite 2019-2020 In Colors, and here is what I came up with.

Of course, I can’t resist the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to create the 3d feel of the cotton pods either.

Here is a quick video tutorial sharing how I colored and used the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint along with a couple of tips for success. I’ve also done a PDF to go along with the video for you.

Painted Harvest & more Team fun

Team time = a lot of fun. Each month we gather, share and stamp together at our Team Meeting. This month when we gathered we learned how to make a special treat that I’ll hope to be sharing with you soon, I just need to whip up a video for you. In the meantime I can share those projects that the Blue Mountain Stampers brought for swapping.

This first card uses one of my favorite sets, Painted Harvest (144783) – don’t you love the little hedge hog created with this 3 step stamp?

Teamed up with the Leaf Punch (144667) & Woodland Embossing Folder (139673) this card is sure to bring a smile.

And here are a couple of treats for fall. This first one is a super cute bat created with a couple of snack sized Kit Kat bars, card stock and circle punch.

And of course we can’t forget those cute googly eyes either!

And how about this sucker holder using the Harvest Hellos stamp set (150581) and it’s coordinating Apple Builder Punch (150663)? You can get these in a bundle and save 10% when you do.

And for some fall color – here is a card made with our Colorful Seasons stamp set (143726) and the Seasonal Layers Dies (143751).

Can you see the texture in the background created with our Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (151775)?

And finally, this fun card uses the It Starts with Art Art stamp set (149303) and Arts & Craft Dies (149580) found in the Follow Your Art Suite of products found in the 2019 Annual Catalog. So there are lots of options and you can get a 10% discount too!

I really love the combination of colors that Sue used for this card. And the card base also uses the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (151775) – a great option for just a touch of texture when you need it.

#simplestamping with Bon Appetit

Today’s project was created using card stock, ink, and a couple of punches. It also uses the stamp set from our September Paper Pumpkin Kit. Which is perfect for simple stamping. Check out this cute little note card for Halloween. Perfect for mailing or tucking in with a little treat.

These little skeletons are simply stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and I used the Gorgeous Grape spot that came in the kit for the sentiment and sponging. Want to see how I made it? I’ve got a video today for you. (I know it’s a day later than planned, but I wanted to share my big news with you yesterday – a perfect way to start the new year!)

Here are the details:

  • When ordering Online you must be sure to use Host Code EFXCZ934.
  • Failure to use the Host Code means your order will not count in the 10 and you will receive just the $25 Stampin’ Rewards instead of the $45 or ½ price items.

Cards, Cards, Cards…..

And now onto the penguins.

As many of you know I love penguins and collect them. (While my husband has banned me from displaying ALL of them in my kitchen like I did in our first home, you’ll still find some scattered about, especially during the holidays! LOL) My very first set that I purchased from Stampin’ Up! was a penguins set. I can’t resist these little guys! So needless to say it was one of my first choices from the Holiday Catalog.

So anyhow, I wanted to share these cute little playful penguins with you today –

This first card is simply gorgeous in person done in Gorgeous Grape and Seaside Spray. The Hammered Metal Embossing Folder was used for the back ground and then highlighted with some of our Frost White Shimmer Paint (147046) and our Dazzling Diamonds (133751) was then added to make it sparkle.

The NEW Shimmer Crystal Effects were also used for the garland that is wrapped around the penguin. Some Whisper White Baker’s Twine was added first, then some Shimmer Crystal Effects and finally some of the Snowflake Sequins.

And how about some perfectly plaid and traditional holiday colors for some very dapper penguins?

Do you like a little shimmer for your cards? If so you’ll want to check out our Shimmer White Card stock – it adds just a bit of shimmer and is perfect for winter cards like these. I also love it for water coloring and techniques since it is a bit heavier than our Whisper White card stock.

Make sure you don’t miss out on today’s promotions and then don’t forget to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a fun project, tutorial and video with you!

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Playful Penguin (150532)

Paper: Shimmery White Card stock (101910) and Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (149596)

Accessories: Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (150646), Snowflake Sequins (150443), Shimmery Crystal Effects (150892), and Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8: Striped Ribbon (149597)

Lots of Cheer

And now for some cards, because I know you want to see projects too. Today’s cards use a stamp set found in our 2019 Annual Catalog. The Lots of Cheer stamp set is filled with wonderful holiday images and sentiments. And how fun is this bold font?

This first card uses the bell wreath image, glimmer paper, and the Buffalo Check Background stamp (147797/151372) to create a very sparkly holiday card

And speaking of sparkly – Our Sparkle Glimmer Paper (146957) packs a wow on this card. It’s been teamed up with our Silver Foil sheets (132178) and Rich Razzleberry for a bit of winter brrr.


Done in traditional colors of Real Red and Call Me Clover this card uses our Nested Stitched Label Dies (149638) and the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder (151785)

And this final card uses some of the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper (150432) and the Real Red 1/8″ Curly Ribbon (150426) to create this fun fold card.

The fold is done with some simple scoring so that when you open it you’ll see the sentiment hiding behind the folds.

So what do you think? Have a favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think?

I’ll be sharing some more swap with you next week – so don’t forget to stop on by.

Team Time Sharing

Tomorrow is my team craft time, I really enjoy this afternoon of crafting together. It is a purely social event when we gather, bring project we are working on and enjoy each others company. Thinking about it earlier today made me realized I hadn’t shared some of the wonderful projects my team shared with me earlier this month.

So here we go – I love the variety of the projects they make. Such talented stampers they always inspire me with their projects.

This first card is a Pop Up Card that uses the Sailing Home Bundle (151066) and other items you can find in the Suite (152175).

Here is the inside – fun right? And did you know that the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (149481) is part of our Buy 3 Get 1 Free September Designer Series Paper promotion?

And here is a cute movement card using the Over the Moon stamp set (149331)

I just adore these little cows.

And here is a great use of those scraps you have laying around – a strip card using the sentiment from Free as a Bird (149468)

And how about this over sized card using the Daisy Delight Stamp set (143669) and coordinating punches (143713 and 149517) done in Gorgeous Grape?

And finally a fun fold card made with the lovely See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper (149443) another of our wonderful Papers that is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Promotion this month and the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580).

Well that is it for today – tomorrow I’ll share some of the swaps I received recently.
