Pick of the Patch

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!

The Scalloped Contour Dies (155560) and Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder (162189) add some texture and interest to the card. Fun right? If you would like to see the tutorial I shared with you using this bundle from earlier this month CLICK HERE.

So what do you think? See the possibilities for your own fall crafting fun?

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a fun tutorial with you.

Beautiful, Bold Penned & Painted and more

I have to tell you I by passed these two stamps sets that I’m sharing with you today the first time through the Annual Catalog. But after seeing these two great cards from Cathy I’ve gone back and taken a closer look at them both, adding them to my wish list.

Check out this first card using the Penned & Painted stamp set done in our NEW In Colors.

SPenned & Painted C AC Swap 2016 (1)

I think it is striking with it’s trendy bold colors. And of course I LOVE the Ruched Ribbon that is available in each of the 5 In Colors for 2016-2018. It ties wonderfully and is a great width for lots of projects.

And while this next card uses the Touches of Texture stamp set (141934/143251) and uses is a totally different pallet of colors I really love it too. I love the way Cathy used the Thoughtful Banners Bundle (142330) for the sentiment and layered the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a 3d feel.

Touches of Texture SC AC Swap 2016 (5)

I think the colors are perfect for a fall card. And the Gold Metal Thread and Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon adds a wonderful bit of texture too.

I know my photos can’t possibly show how wonderful the cards really are.

Pictogram Punches in Black & White

Today’s card is another Black & White swap that I received from Convention and I think it is a lot of fun and a different type layout.

Pictogram PUnches convention swap 2014

Do you recognize the Designer Series Paper? It is the Back to Black Designer Series Paper (item 133700) found on page 187 of the 2014 Annual Catalog. Lyndia teamed up this organic pattern with the NEW Pictogram Punches stamp set (134261/134264) found on page 89 and then added one of our Petite Petal images to add a little more presence.

It’s Not Just Stamping …..

Today I thought I would share with you a project I did recently for my daughter, Kaitlin. In March, she attended her Key Club DCON (or district convention) event. It’s a special event at the end of their Key Club year that combines training, work, and celebration.  Along with the recognition of the individual High School Key Club achievements throughout the state, they also elect new Officers for the 15 Divisions in the State of Georgia. I can’t tell you how impressed I was with these young adults who are making a difference in their communities with the help of their parent club, the Kiwanis.

Here is a photo of my daughter with my husband from the Talent and Awards Banquet during DCON. It was a formal event where they had to dress in a special color that the District Board voted on. Well long story short – my daughter chose the same dress as another young lady from another Division. A crisis moment…..

DCON Larry & Kaitlin

Mom to the rescue! At this point I bet your wondering what this has to do with stamping, right. Well, did you notice the decoration on her hip? Yep, your right – it’s one of our fabric flowers you can make with our Jumbo Sticky Rounds (item 127852). However instead of using our ribbon or fabric, I made this one using the left over fabric from her dress’s hem. I also made a matching one for her hair, sorry to say she didn’t get that picture for me – I thought it looked very nice with her fancy up do.
