It’s the Season of Thanks

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and so I thought it would be fitting to share a couple more cards that use the Gather Together Bundle.

This first one uses some paper piecing to create a colorful leaf

And this next has not only some wonderful fall colors but also great texture since it uses the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder (151801).

This set is perfect with its sentiments that express to those around us just how thankful we are for them.

As I gather with my family tomorrow, I am acutely aware of just how lucky I am in all the areas of my life. My hope is as you celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow you too have safe travels and will enjoy the time with those around you too.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Gather Together Pillow Box Treats

Here is a quick and easy treat that hold a few pieces of chocolate that you can put together quickly using our Kraft Pillow Boxes from the Annual Catalog.

How did I make these?

Well I used my Stampin’ Spritzer filled with alcohol and a few drops Pretty Peacock Reinker. I sprayed the Kraft Pillow Box until I got the depth of color I wanted and allowed to dry. If you find your box is getting too wet, allow it to dry between coats of color.

I used my Story Label Punch and punched out the handle before I assembled my pillow box. If you do this before you color it you will get more bleeding on the inside from the spritzing.

Then I decorated as desired.

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.

Nature’s Beauty

Want to make a difference? Stampin’ Up! has introduced a stamp set in the 2019 Holiday Catalog that does just that. The Nature’s Beauty stamp set found on page 63, not only has beautiful images that you can make wonderful project with, but it also gives a $3 donation to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (or NAMI). That’s a win, win. So if you haven’t already noticed this stamp set, why not take a look?

Here are some lovely cards made with the set. The first one uses a combination of sponging and Stampin’ Blends to create this soft feel.

The Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (150454) is used as a back drop and the gold foil leaves that were embossed and cut with the Gathered Leaves Dies (150662).

Lot of texture and a touch of fall.

And how about this next card? The Watercolor swish behind the deer creates a lovely highlight effect.

And finally this last card uses Vellum Card stock (101856) and White Embossing Powder (109132) to create a wonderful card.

Don’t you love the photographic images and soft colors of the Feels like Frost Specialty Designer Series paper? (150444). This card has been done in shades of blue and finished off with a lovely bow made with the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon (150446). This card definitely packs a wow.

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.

#imbringingbirthdaysback in September with Gather Together

Ahh… the nip is in the air. Not – at least not for a while yet here in North Georgia. We’re having the hottest September in years. So it is kind of odd to watch all the leaves blowing across my yard when it’s in the 90s. I think mother nature is a bit confused this year.

The start of the school year and football season always makes me think of the fall color and cooler days, so I reached for the Gather Together Bundle to create this month’s birthday card.

What do you think? I used the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper for this card since I thought the texture was a great fit AND I love the fact it is part of our Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Promotion this month.

While this set has some lovely sentiments and images,

it didn’t contain a birthday sentiment which I wanted for this project so I reached for the Seaside Notions set since I thought the font was perfect for this card. What do you think? Of course you could use the “Wishing you well” sentiment also.

Check out my video tutorial to see how I made this card.

Want to make some too? Here is a PDF tutorial for you.
