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.

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Loyal Leaves (152544)

Accessories: Watercolor Pencils (141709 & 149014)

Gather Together

As crazy as it sounds the last rain showers brought yellow leaves fluttering down along the roadsides and in my front yard. It seems way too early with our 90 degree days but these little leaves are always the first sign of fall for me. And for some reason they always catch me by surprise every year the first time I see them. Then I have to remind myself that it is mid August and the hot days won’t last much longer. So that got me thinking about leaves and the Gather Together Bundle that has some wonderful images and dies for our fall crafting needs. Check out these lovely cards done with this Bundle.

This first card uses our new In Color Cinnamon Cider and the maple leaf has been colored with our Stampin’ Blends – love, love, love this coloring option for bold colors!

The Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper (153520) was used along with the Timeless Label Punch (149516).

This next card uses our Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (153527) and the embossing dies that are part of the bundle. They cut and emboss texture at the same time which is pretty cool.

Gather Together

open it and you have a fun little surprise – the sentiment panel is attached to the card front only giving you a different look that allows the card to stand on it’s own.

Gather Together

Some simple stamping and die cutting creates this lovely card.

Gather Together

And how about this final card? It uses the wonderful Faux Suede Trim (152472) and the lovely wood print from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (152494)

Gather Together

Don’t these cards make you think of crisp autumn nights? I always love the rich color combos for fall and this years’ In Color, Cinnamon Cider and the new Designer Series Papers are a lot of fun.

Enjoy!

Life is Beautiful

Its a balmy 93 degrees here in the North Georgia mountains and the humidity is off course off the charts, but that is Georgia in August. So today’s card makes me think of the cooler days ahead, after all once school starts those cooler mornings aren’t far behind.

Today’s card uses the Life is Beautiful stamp set (154871) found in the August – December Mini Catalog on page 51.

Life is Beautiful

I passed this one right by, but this card has me looking at it closer as I love the font and ease of customizing the tree. This DistInktive set can work for you all year long depending on your color choice and it has some great sentiments too.

Life is Beautiful

This card was stamped using our Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake Classic Inks to create a fall feel. And take a closer look at the card base – its the Gold Cards & Envelopes (153532) that are also found on page 51.

These cards and envelopes are gorgeous and the gold envelope is very rich with it’s metallic shimmer. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed if you give them a try.

So what do you think? Look like a set that you would enjoy? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?

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.

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?

Holiday Catalog Kick Off Gather Together Make n Take

It finally feels a little bit like fall here in North Georgia with some cooler temperatures, while it is still in the 80s there’s a hint of cooler weather coming our way. And after spending the evening last night with my daughter and her band, watching them and the other county’s High School bands perform their half time shows it feels more like fall to me too.

Check out this fun fall card that we make using the Come to Gather Suite of products found in the Holiday Catalog.

This suite is filled with those colors that make us think of fall and I’m loving the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack with it’s rich satin edge ribbon and linen thread – perfect for a range of products.

Today’s card uses the Brick & Motar 3d Embossing Folder to create some texture and interest in the background. Our embossing folders are perfect for this and make it quick and easy too.

Want to see how this card comes together? Check out my video tutorial and of course a printable PDF too.

Gather Together Mini Shipping Treat Box

Today’s treat box was created special for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off last Saturday and it will filled with some chocolate goodies. I had a lot of fun making them for my guests.

Any how here is the treat – a made with one of our Mini Shipping Boxes, so it will hold quite a bit.

Clearly I had a thing for caramel when I was shopping since when I started filling the boxes I realized I’d picked up 4 different kinds. Or maybe it was because I was looking at the color coordinating packaging! LOL! Do you ever do that?

I really love how these treat boxes turned out and I can’t wait to share the fun technique for creating these wonderful little leaves and stamping on the wood element pieces that I used to decorate the box. No inky fingers! Ahh….. the magic of stamping.

Why not check out my video tutorial? Not only will you see just how easy these treats were to make but I’ll share a couple of tips and tricks with you too.
