Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall

This month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit comes with a great stamp set and Merry Merlot Ink Spot – perfect for coloring with. And since I think monochromatic cards are always striking that’s where I started. So today’s card is one that I created simply by adding our Very Vanilla Note Cards, some card stock, and our Blender Pens! It is definitely what I consider #simplestamping which is always a great thing!

This card highlights one of our simple coloring techniques – and Blender Pens are a great tool to add to your supplies. Not only is it versatile it also gives you a lot of bang for your buck, since you’ll get 3 of them in your package. The options are endless, simply reach for your favorite color ink pad! This makes them great for a newer stamper just building their supplies or even a seasoned stamper like me.

Want to see how I created this card? I have shared this easy coloring technique in my video.

And of course here is a complete supply list and measurements all in a handy PDF just for you!

Want A Splash of Color?

Love color? Here are some more cards I made using the same layout idea. They play with a bit of color from past Paper Pumpkin Ink Spots.

This first card still stamps the branches and sentiment in Merry Merlot but uses the Pretty Peacock and Merry Merlot ink spots to color the berries. And how about this one? This time I used Early Espresso to stamp the branches and added Crushed Curry to the mix along.

What do you think? Monochromatic or color? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like?

Then stop back by when I’ll be sharing what I made with the left over pieces and the Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall Add On Bundle.

Can you believe I’ve got all of this left over to create with?

Toile Christmas Card Tutorial

Today’s card is one that I designed for my Team Retreat Shoe Box Swap and it was inspired by the card in the Holiday Catalog. Just goes to show, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, you can just change it up a bit. This is what we call a CASE, or copy and share everything! lol

Inspiration can come from all places it doesn’t have to be just another card – color and patterns are all around us in our everyday lives. My daughter is always rolling her eyes at me when we are out shopping and I say “look there are flowers done in Terracotta Tile or like her dress years ago Calypso Coral! I love the fact that Stampin’ Up! keeps up with our color trends.

Here is the card – I just love cardinals so this was a set I just HAD to have!

I wanted a bold cardinal so for this project I used our Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends after paying around with the Watercolor Pencils and the Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink. The Disinktive stamp make this so easy to color since the shading is already there for you. You can see just how fast this card was to color with the Blends in my video.

Free as a Bird Thank You

I’ve become quite the bird watcher over the years here in Clarkesville, enjoying the hunt for just the right bird in my book as I learned about them. My son built some bluebird boxes years ago and they now dot our fence line around our house – we’ve been lucky enough to have at least a couple of them being used each season that I can watch as I sip coffee in the morning through out the nesting season.

So today’s card was created using the Bird Ballard Suite of products found on pages 90-92 of the 2019 Annual Catalog. The suite is filled with wonderful water colored images and soft colors which is right up my alley.

And since this set is perfect for coloring I reached for my Stampin’ Blends and started to create my own little bluebird.

While I was at it I figured I’d whip up a tutorial for you – so I’ve made a quick video and PDF so you can make some too if you want.

A Little Smile Thank You Note Card

The June Paper Pumpkin Kit included a great little beach themed set that has some wonderful sentiments and after putting the little cards together I’ve still got tons of pieces left to play with. And I’ve been doing just that. However, today’s card is one that I created using just the stamp set.

I made a bunch of these up to send out – they were quick and easy, and all I did was add a package of note cards and some Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake card stock. Love that we can put the kit together and then use the ink and stamps to build our collection and supplies.

Here is a quick PDF Tutorial for you

It Starts with Art Tutorial

Today’s card is one that I created to share along time ago but it got buried on my desk, ugh. But that means you’re in luck today since I’m sharing it today. LOL!

The card uses the Follow Your Art Suite of Products that can be found on page 53 of the Annual Catalog – this Suite is filled with wonderful products that speak to me since I’m a life long crafter of all kinds of crafts, starting as a child with learning how to embroider. Remember those iron on x patterns for our first samplers? I think my first project was a pillow case edge. How about you? What was your first project?

I love the fact that this Suite contains different kinds of crafting images and items – perfect for all kinds of crafters young and young at heart.

Any how here is my project that I created for my OnStage Team event back in April.

And how about a video too?

Back on Your Feet Fun

Yesterday, I shared with you some of the cards that my team created for the shoe box swap at our Team Retreat – today I’ll be sharing mine along with the video tutorial so you can make some too if you’d like.

The Back on Your Feet stamp set found on page 83 in our 2019 Annual Catalog contains such cute images I couldn’t resist it, after all it seems like I’ve been need of get well cards lately.

And the little turtle image brought back childhood memories – Did you have a pet turtle growing up? I know I had the whole set up plastic dish with the island and palm tree you could place in the center – my little guy was always getting out. Sigh…. what simple pleasures.

Any how here is my card.

I just love the NEW Pigment Sprinkles in our exclusive Stampin’ Up! Colors!!! I knew as soon as I saw them I wanted to play with them at the team retreat while I had some dedicated crafting time – and they don’t disappoint with their bright bold colors!

Here is my video tutorial so you can see how I created this card.
