Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Thanksgiving for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend?  I hope you are making some fun plans.  I love this time of year when the air is a little cooler and the leaves are starting to change.  We’re having nice cool nights and very pleasant days right now.

For today I have a quick fun fold for you.  Actually the only part that has the fold is the Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the Fab Friday Challenge #172.  Here are their colors. Love these gorgeous fall colors.

I started out by folding my Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.  On the 5 3/8″ side I cut up 2″ at the 2 11/16″ mark.  I scored from each of the corners on an angle to the cut line and folded on the scored lines.

On the right center edge of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the turkey image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the turkey image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the folded DSP to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Cajun Craze  card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow that I made from the Mint Macaron Nature’s Twine using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the turkey in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the turkey in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I hope you all have a fun filled weekend.  See you Monday. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We made it half way through the week already.  Hope your week is going well.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite stamp sets to create a different sunflower.  I’m not quite sure what I was thinking when I decided to fussy cut the whole sunflower out, but I did it.   Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #474.  Here are their colors.

My design was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #323.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut 2 of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies out, one in Rococo Rose cardstock and the other a size smaller in the Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the DSP label to the Rococo Rose label using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the 1st part of the sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink.  I stamped the 2nd step of the sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink over the 1st image.  I stamped the sunflower center image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sunflower seed image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I then fussy cut the sunflower out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals. to the back of the sunflower and added some of the Rose Metallic Thread to it so that it was sneaking out all around the sunflower.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front.  I stamped 3 of the leaf images from the Painted Harvest stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the detailed leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink and the fill in leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink stamping off once.  I punched the leaves out using my Leaf Punch.  I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I made a banner of the sentiment strip.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored in using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set, the same as I did for the card front, on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Harvest Ride With Me

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  This week is flying by.  I can’t believe we’re halfway through already.  Does everyone know what today is?  The new 2019 Holiday Catalog goes live TODAY!!

For today’s card I played with the new Stampin’ Up Ride With Me Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I didn’t think I would like this set, but I’m really liking it and I’m not a truck person.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with a couple challenges today.  First off is the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #337.  Here are their colors.

Next I joined in with the Paper Players Theme Challenge #457.  Here is their theme.

I also played along with Sunday Stamps Challenge #212.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping a Garden Green card front using the Stampin’ Up Birch Cling Stamp with Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered a strip of Pumpkin Pie Gingham Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the right side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the truck image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the truck.  I colored the images in using my Light Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaves of the pumpkins in using my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Snail.

I stamped the sentiment from the Ride With Me stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered a piece of the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment strip over the burlap ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Early Espresso Ink along the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Pumpkin Pie Gingham Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Gather Together

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your Labor Day?  Hope you all had a relaxing day.

For today’s card I used a bundle from the new 2019 Holiday Catalog which goes live TOMORROW!!  Here’s my card.

My card joined in with a few challenges today.  First off is CAS On Sunday challenge #162.  There theme is ‘Use a Stencil’.

Next is Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #472.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge #227.  Here is their spotlight product.

I started by sponging the trees using the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and Soft Suede Ink on a Whisper White panel with my Stamping Sponges.

I adhered a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the stenciled Whisper White panel using Glue Dots.  I cut it even with the card front.  I adhered a panel of Old Olive cardstock over the DSP using Snail and cut it even with the card front.   Using Versamark Ink I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set on the bottom of the Old Olive panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.

Using Versamark Ink I stamped the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set on a Cajun Craze panel. I immediately sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the leaf out using my Gathered Leaves Dies. I adhered the leaf to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the pumpkins in using my Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze Mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Wisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the leaf in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Makers.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up Gather Together for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.

The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some gorgeous projects. This month our theme is ‘Fall Frenzy’. We can interpret this any way we would like to.  I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Connie Troyer’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I have another sneak peek for you.  I used a new bundle coming in the Holiday Catalog called Gather Together.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Challenge #169.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (available Sept 4) to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Pretty Peacock card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the wheat image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4) in Pretty Peacock Ink 3 times.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Blackberry Bliss scallop circle mat, which I had cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using the Gathered Leaves Dies (available Sept 4) I cut out 4 leaves, 1 each in Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I stamped the single pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Pumpkin Pie Ink and cut it out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I arranged the leaves and pumpkin on the bottom of the stitched circle the way I liked them and adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and cut it out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of the leaf. I stamped the double pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut them out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I adhered them to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Now be sure to hit Previous to hop back to Connie Troyer’s blog or hit Next to head over to Amy Koenders blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!

Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Triple Stamp Card for The Paper Players Color Challenge

Good Thursday morning everyone.  We are almost to the weekend again.  Anyone making some fun plans?

For todays card I made a Triple Stamp Card and my card was inspired by The Paper Players challenge.  Be sure to stop by their blog to see what beautiful projects everyone has made and to play along. It’s a color challenge week and here are the colors.

Here is my take on the colors.

I started with 3 pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock, (measurements below).  I layered them evenly and stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center.  I then stamped the large and small leaves from the Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, and Crushed Curry Ink all around the sentiment.

I took the layers apart and adhered them to Mossy Meadow mats using Snail.  I layered them all on top of each other, making sure to line up the leaves, using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Snail.

I cut out one small and one large leaf using my Big Shot in Cajun Craze cardstock and Crushed Curry cardstock from the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies.  I adhered the leaves using Stampin’ Dimensionals to the left of the sentiment.  I attached a small bow made from the Mossy Meadow Cotton Twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine Collection with a Glue Dot.

On the inside on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the leaves from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink and Crushed Curry Ink all around the edges.  I stamped the sentiment from Painted Harvest stamp set in Mossy Meadow in the center.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail.  I adhered it to the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I stamped the leaves from Rooted In Nature stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink and Crushed Curry Ink along the bottom front and the envelope flap of a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  Hope you enjoyed my card today and will give it a try.  Thank you for stopping by my blog.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up Country Home Thanksgiving Card

Good Tuesday morning everyone.  Hope your week has started off well.  For my card today I used the Country Home Photopolymer stamp set and Buffalo Check stamp set.  I’m not much of a ‘country’ type person, but I’m really loving these sets.  Once again I’ve used my Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I just love coloring with them.  I normally can’t color to save my life, but with these markers it seems really easy.  Take a look.  I’ve gone with some non traditional fall colors.

I started with a piece of Mango Melody cardstock and stamped it with the Buffalo Check stamp in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered it to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Pitcher image from the Country Home Photopolymer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Momento Ink. I colored it in using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Above the pitcher I stamped one of the floral images from the Country Home stamp set. I colored this in using my Blackberry Bliss, Mango Melody, Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I used some Clear Wink of Stella on the white flowers to make them shimmer a little.  I adhered the artwork panel first to a mat of Poppy Parade, using Snail, then to a mat of Night of Navy, using Snail again.  I attached a small piece of  5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front using Snail and adhered the matted artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Mango Melody cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink and made a banner. I edged it with my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it to the left side of the card front using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the floral image on the bottom of Whisper White cardstock in Night of Navy Ink stamping off twice.  I then stamped another one of the sentiments in Night of Navy Ink in the center.  I adhered it to a Mango Melody Mat using Snail and adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the floral image in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once, on the front of the envelope.  On the envelope flap I stamped the Buffalo Check image in Night of Navy Ink.  Thank you for checking out my blog and I hope you will stop back again soon.  Give this card a try, it was a pretty easy one.  Happy Stamping!
