Team Fun & the Gilded Autumn Pumpkin Home Décor Project

This past weekend I gathered with my Team, The Blue Mountain Stampers for a special biannual event. This event allows us to gather and celebrate everyone’s accomplishments over the last 6 months. We have a special project, along with prizes, and appetizers. So today I thought I’d share our project that we made.

This project was a lot of fun to make and everyone’s turned out differently since they could decide on which patterns they wanted to use. Here is mine.

I really love the colors and patterns of the Gilded Autumn Suite of Products and so I couldn’t resist making a home décor item with them. I also really love the way the little swirls of copper ribbon finish off this project. They are so easy to make – I bet you are wondering how I made them too!

You’ll need a wooden skewer or dowel along with your heat tool and Heavy Spray Starch. Yep, that’s it! You’ll also need a bit of patience as you make them since it does require some dry time tho. I’m not sure how they would hold up outside, but since I’m planning on using this project inside my home I wasn’t worried about our heavy Georgia humidity of late.

Want to see how we made them? Here is a video for you.

I’ve also included a link for the pumpkins and PDF pattern on this Tutorial for you.

Want to make some of these too? Here is the information on the wooded pumpkins for you that I found on Amazon along with a PDF pattern for this pumpkin.

Friend Like You Card Tutorial

Today’s card is bright and cheerful and great for summer

So what do you think? Love the summer time feel – we are just starting to heat up here in North Georgia and with Memorial Day right around the corner I’m looking forward to getting back in the pool. (That is once we get the new liner installed, our old one decided to give up on us last week as we were preparing to open it.)

Here is my tutorial for you so you can make some too and spread a little sunshine

Friend Like You Card Tutorial PDF

I love the Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay combination that I used for this project. However, after I made it I realized that the Bright Color Collection Paper was no longer available, you may already have some which is great. If not the good news is we’ll have a new stack of patterns in the Brights Color Collection (152487) available in June when the 2020 Annual Catalog launches, so you can get some then. Or if you don’t want to wait check out the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper (retiring 149489) which has a great Coastal Cabana pattern in it and it’s available at a fantastic price while it lasts!

Enjoy!

No Matter the Weather Note Card Tutorial

March’s Paper Pumpkin kit had 2 stamp sets – the one that came with the kit and then a bonus set that coordinated with it. And it seemed like a wonderful kit for right now. I really enjoyed putting it together and creating with the sets themselves. So today I thought I’d share my alternate project with you that I created as a thank you card for those who subscribe to the kit.

I use the Note Cards & Envelopes for these cards since they are a great value and wonderful for newer stampers since you receive the card base and envelope for one low price.

Here is my video tutorial showing you how I created this card – why not take a few minutes to check it out?

And a PDF that you can print off with a complete supply list

Ornate Thanks Card Tutorial

Sorry I didn’t get this posted as planned late yesterday, but with the announcement yesterday afternoon from our Governor and our son’s birthday I was feeling overwhelmed and needed a bit of time to process. I’m sure that you can relate. This morning brought a lovely new sunrise and a bright new day and so I’m back to share.

So here we go –

Today’s project is one that I made for my April Thank You cards using the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release Bundle of products that just went live yesterday. Filled with beautiful colors and floral images this card allows the Specialty Designer Series Paper to shine.

This stamp set is filled with not only a wonderful selection of sentiments it uses a lovely font also. The coordinating dies have some lovely borders that I can’t wait to play with too.

I’ve whipped up a quick video for you and a PDF with supply list so you can create this project too while were home.
