Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths for Fall

This card is very fall-ish: plaid designer series paper, a wreath & leaves ~ what more could you ask for in a fall card? So here ya go…

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths, Fall.1

I began by stamping the wreath on a Basic White piece in Soft Suede ink with the Cottage Wreaths stamp set, then die cut it with the Country Wreaths Dies. I took another panel of Basic White and ran it through the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder to use as a background for the wreath. I covered the front of an A2 Pumpkin Pie card stock with the Gingham Cottage DSP in Pumpkin Pie. I took a piece of Pale Papaya card stock and ran it through the Deckled Rectangles Dies, cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock just slightly larger to layer behind it. Because I wanted yet another layer (😁) I used a smaller Deckled Rectangle Die to cut a pice of the Texture Chic Specialty DSP. All of these I layered, centering each one as you see, except the Basic White embossed panel. This I offset, put dimensionals on the die cut wreath and adhered it to the card front. Then I set about the leaves.

Stampin' Up! Baby Wipes & re-inkers.2

On a baby wipe, I dropped a couple of drops of re-inkers in these colorsCrushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie & Mossy Meadow. This is so fun to watch them bleed into one another. I took the small three leaves from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set and stamped it several times on a Basic White scrap, then die cut them all, choose several and attached with dimensionals to the wreath and on the card. There are actually seven of them. My last step was to tie a double bow using the Metallic Woven Ribbon in Parakeet Party and linen Thread together. These were attached with a glue dot.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths, Fall.3

For the inside of the card… I stamped a Basic White panel with this sentiment from Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Soft Suede ink. Then, remember the Pale Papaya cut for the card front? I used the remainder of that piece for the inside of the card, adhering over the Basic White framing it. My last step was to add more of the Baby Wipe stamped leaves from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set – just with a dot of liquid glue. This was added to the inside of the card & voila!

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths, Fall.4

The envelope was extra easy & fun – I just used the same three leaves, stamped them on the baby wipe & onto the envelope, both on the front and all over the flap. Done! What’s extra nice is this card can be used for several things: thank you, birthday, congratulations – all because of the sentiment. Yes, I will have to send it this fall :O)

Stqmpin’ Up! hello Harvest and Plaid for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello!!! And welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We have a color challenge today that just seems perfect for a fall card. Here’s what i created for it…

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest & Plaid.1
Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Our color challenge is as seen in this photo…

The plaid is from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Regal DSP and it’s Crushed Curry. The background DSP is Pumpkin Pie in the same 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Regal DSP. I used it to cover the card front of the Pumpkin Pie card base. And I used the Stitched Rectangles to create the rectangles. Here’s a picture of how I die cut that.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hello & Plaid w/ Stitched Rectangles. 2

It’s obvious how I held everything in place while I did the Stitched Rectangles die cuts. It was perfect… I adhered these in place with liquid glue – please notice how all the plaids line up just right in the completed card.:O)

The next step was the pumpkin – stamped on Basic White Thick card stock then colored with Stampin’ Blends… Pumpkin Pie, Light then Dark; Cajun Craze, Light & Dark. The stem was colored with Mossy Meadow Marker. The pumpkin was die cut with the pumpkin die from the Rustic Pumpkin Die (which of course coordinates w/ the Hello Harvest stamp set. As a bundle it’s 10% off!) This pumpkin was adhered in place with dimensionals after attaching a bit of Linen Thread with Stampin’ Seal. Here’s a photo of that…

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest  & Plaid.3

I stamped the small flowers in Memento Ink and colored w/ Stampin’ Blends So Saffron & Pumpkin Pie and die cut with the Rustic Pumpkin Dies. The flower on the left was secured in place with glue dots and the other two with dimesnionals. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink as well, on basic White, and die cut with Stitched Rectangles. This was adhered in place with dimensional on the left and one in the upper right corner and a bit of glue on the lower right corner. As a final touch, three Brushed Metallic Dots were added for a bit of glam. I like it! And that was it for the card front.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest & Paid, inside.4

For the inside, I kept it real simple… and stamped the image in Memento Black on Basic White card stocl and adhered it to the inside of the card. The image is from Hello Harvest stamp set. This was attached in place with liquid glue ~ and the card was done.

For the envelope… more of the same plaid from 2022-2024- In Color 6×6 DSP in crushed Curry on the flap and the very nice bouquet stamped in Memento Ink on the envelope front. I colored the flowers with stampin’ Blends So Saffron & Pumpkin Pie.

Stampin’ Up! Soft Seedlings

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The theme this week is ‘Harvest’ and I’ve chosen to use the baby wipe technique and the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings and bay wipe technique

Harvest just says ‘fall’ to me… and here it is almost mid August. Already the sky is not light as late at night and remains darker later in the morning. Boo hoo! But I love seasons, so I’m not complaining. I was playing with the baby wipe technique and these came out so softly that at first I didn’t like it, but the more I played, the more I DID like it. My baby wipe was a bit dry and that’s why I think it turned out so softly, but as I said, I like it. If you haven’t done this technique before, I urge you to try it… it’s super easy

  • the baby wipe should be on a large acrylic plate or a ceramic one, something that will protect your surface from the wetness – and be flat too of course.
  • drop various re-inker colors on the baby wipe: I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Crumb Cake (harvest/ fall colors). Allow them to bleed together.
  • With the stamp on an acrylic block, stamp onto the inked baby wipe then onto the desired card stock. I used Very Vanilla for this card. Continue as many times as needed for the effect you are wanting.
  • Because I had extra card stock on my table, I stamped for the inside layer and the envelope front ~ and each time the image was different in colors. L-O-V-E!

I trimmed my focal image down and adhered it to a Pumpkin Pie panel. It was at this point I created my background: Regals 6×6 DSP in Pumpkin Pie – fun plaid – adhered to Pumpkin Pie. I wrapped this with a length of Frayed Ribbon and attached it in back with Seal+, then mounted it on a Very Vanilla card base with dimensionals. I took my baby wipe focal piece and attached it with dimensionals to the card front. For the sentiment, I stamped this in Soft Suede ink using the True Beauty stamp set on a Very Vanilla strip. I wanted a scrolly kind of font that imitated the swirly of the front image. This was added to another piece of Pumpkin Pie and added to the front with dimensionals. As a final touch – Amber Gems from the Leaf Label & Amber Gems Combo Pack. And the front was done.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings baby wipe technique

Remember this inside is already stamped with the maple leaf whirly-gigs :O) using the baby wipe technique explained above. And yes, it’s Very Vanilla card stock added to a Pumpkin Pie layer, then attached to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings baby wipe technique

For the envelope, I stamped the leaf image using the baby wipe technique on the front, then more of the Regals 6×6 DSP Pumpkin Pie – fun plaid – on the flap & voila – the card is done. Depending on the color of re-inkers used for this technique, this card could be in deep purples with bits of Crumb Cake or Crushed Curry – hmmm I may have to try that! – or shades of red. You really can use your imagination and use just about any color combo. Have fun with it!

OK – now, on with the hop. You may use the next button or click on a name to get you where you’re going. Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The theme this week is LEAVES – and interpret that however we like – so… here goes! Be sure to follow along to see all the wonderful projects.

No photo description available.
Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.1

My goodness, did I have fun with this card. See that stunning color on the inside of the rectangle? Love, love. And it was created with several colors… but I get ahead of myself just a bit. Begin with a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, die cut and remove the center. With Blending Brushes create this gorgeousness: begin with Crushed Curry, then Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and finally Cherry Cobbler inks. Beginning with the lightest of colors and continuing to add each layer, this beauty was created. The next step was to use a Water Painter and flick water droplets, which takes some of the color away. I actually did this process twice so I could die cut leaves from the second piece. That second leaf above is cut from the additional creation. Before die cutting it though, I stamped it with Soft Suede ink using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set, stamped off once, then die cut with Intricate Leaves Dies. The top leaf is also die cut with one of the Intricate Leaves Dies – and from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty 6×6 paper. I then colored it with Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and accented it with Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. I added a bit of Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to the stem and into a bit of the vein on this leaf. My next die cut was the tiny leaf from Gold Foil. I adhered these to the frame of the Very Vanilla with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink using a sentiment from Forever Blossoms stamp set. I put dimensionals on the back of this Very Vanilla panel but did not attach it yet. First I placed the panel on the card base, then laid the gorgeous colored rectangle on the Very vanilla card front & adhered it with liquid glue. I then adhered the front panel so it was ‘square’ with the inner piece.

Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.2

Here is another of the die cut leaves using the Intricate Leaves Dies, cut from the additional colored panel. Once I adhered the leaf with liquid glue, I flicked Soft Suede ink of the Very Vanilla panel, but not all over, just in places. I then stamped the sentiment (from Party Puffins stamp set) in Pumpkin Pie ink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card – and bingo, the card was done!

Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.3

For the envelope I stamped this fun leaf (I think it’s a maple leaf) from Gorgeous Leaves stamp set with Pumpkin Pie ink and sponged daubed on the edges Cherry Cobbler ink. The front leaf is full strength. The leaves on the flap were 2nd & 3rd generation stamping. You can see the Blending Brushes used here in this photo – and the beautiful detail of the Intricate Leaves Die to create the top leaf.

For this card in particular, I kept wanting to add something, metallic adhesive-backed gems or linen thread or doodles along the right. But I stopped. The look is clean.

Helllooooo… today is what I’m calling Terrific Tuesday. Why? Just because 😁 Here is a card created for sunshine and fall using Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP.

Celebrate Sunflowers + Love of Leaves Bundles
#1`

Is this sunflower gorgeous or what!!! How did I do that? The stamp itself does most of the work, I simply added a variety of inks.

  • Inks used for this stunning sunflower… Mango Melody, Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze. The Cinnamon Cider is mostly around the inside rim, with the Cajun Craze in the very center. The other colors are randomly daubed on with… a sponge dauber.
  • With the Sunflowers Dies, I die cut the overlay from Mango Melody card stock and layered it on the inked flower with dimensionals. This gives it a wonderful 3-D effect.
  • I cut a panel of Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and adhered it to a slightly larger panel of Early Espresso with liquid glue.
  • With the Whisper White panel, I ran it through the die cutting machine  with a die from the Stitched Leaves Dies that does not cut, but embosses these straight lines. It creates wonderful texture. hmmmm – can’t see it in the above photo…
  • I adhered this white panel to a card base of Mango Melody with liquid glue
  • I die cut three leaves using dies from Stitched Leaves dies – out of Granny Apple Green card stock
  • I had lying on my desk a wheat sheaf cut from the Sunflowers Dies – cut from  Crumb Cake card stock and lightly colored with Cajun Craze ink using a sponge dauber.
  • Assembly… the white panel is already on the Mango Melody card base. Adhere the Plaid Tidings 6×6 / Early Espresso panel with liquid glue. Attach the sunflower with dimensionals, then add the two lower leaves with liquid glue, then the third with dimensionals, slipping them under the flower. Add the wheat sheaf with liquid glue. Add the bow (using Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee) with a glue dot.
  • The last step is the sentiment panel… I stamped the sentiment from Stitched Leaves stamp set in Early Espresso ink, then punched it out using the Rectangular Postage Punch. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. To give it some glam, I added several 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front was done.

Texture, glam, dimension – wow! Love this card!

The inside was super easy –

  • I stamped a leaf from the Sunflower Dies using the same process as the sunflower… using a sponge dauber and various inksGarden Green along the stem line, then Cajun Craze and Bumblebee. I used the outline die to cut it out.
  • I adhered a strip of adhesive sheet to the back of Mango Melody card stock then used a leaf die to die cut. Because it had adhesive on the back, I simply removed the backing and covered the already stamped leaf. This is the upper leaf.
  • With a scrap of Granny Apple Green card stock, I die cut another leaf from the Stitched Leaves Dies. This leaf has both embossing and is die cut! The same leaf that is on the front of the card.
  • Adhere both leaves with liquid glue to a panel of Whisper White and adhere this to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

SU! Sep. Team Projects

Hi Everyone – it’s Saturday! It’s amazing what cool weather can do…this is that in-between season, before the leaves turn and fall – cool temps, absolutely perfect for sleeping, not quite cool enough for a fire in the fireplace though. We live in a ‘shore community’ and have lots of folks visit due to the many beaches. By now though, the beaches are OURS again….😁

Today I want to share a couple of team projects we created virtually ‘together’ last Sunday. We had been sent pictures and dimensions and instructions via email, but then created them via ZOOM. What a great tool ZOOM has become! Anyhoo – these are fun projects and primarily use the Celebration Tidings Bundle. The stamp set has stamps for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas AND Valentines!  Here are three of the projects…

Celebration Tidings Bundle and Poinsettia Petals

 

Isn’t this beautiful? Yep – the bag is empty – I had no candy to fill it, but the Celebrations Labels Dies create the ‘fold-over’ and background for the Poinsettia Dies. Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP was used for the ‘label’, Shaded Spruce for the leaves, a bit of Brushed Metallic for the berries, Cherry Cobbler for the poinsettia and the gorgeous Beaded Pearls to accent the center of the poinsettia. . The cello bag pictured here is a retired commodity (unfortunately)n but SU! has Mosaic Gusseted Cello Bags that are very versatile.

Project #2

 

Project #2 is a Christmas card… Celebration Tidings Bundle, Stitched Rectangles Dies and Winter Snow 
Embossing Folder were the primary SU! items used. Another pattern from Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP was a major focus and I love how the Celebration Dies were used for a fold-over flap for a surprise addition. It was my personal addition of the Linen Thread bow and Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels for the card front. Let me share inside the flap and the card inside as well.

 

Celebration Tidings Bundle, inside flap

It was my decision to add the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP to the top inside of the die cut. And here’s my reasoning… When using the Blends to color, the stamping element, their is some bleeding through and I didn’t like the way that looked. I simply used the smallest die to cut a piece of DSP to cover the bleeding through. It makes it look more complete and professional to me. Now for the inside…

I chose to do no coloring for the inside – I liked the simplicity, and no additional sentiment needed – lots of room for sharing a friendly update!

 

 

 

 

 

Project #3 is a fall card, again using the Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP and the Celebration Tidings Bundle.

Another gorgeous project! Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP takes center stage again, but the stamped Celebration Die holds its own for sure. Colors here are Cinnamon Cider, Blackberry Bliss, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stocks. Blends used for coloring are Pumpkin Pie, Shaded Spruce. Markers used are Early Espresso and Bumblebee.

SU! Beautiful Autumn Bundle

It’s Friday already – where did this week go? How was it – did you have a good week? We had lots of meetings this week, mostly virtual – and that’s OK. Being able to accomplish the goals is what matters. Ok – idle chatter… let’s get on with it shall we?

Today’s card is another fall one – a masculine birthday card. And it’s the DSP that really takes center stage, although… the Autumn Punch pack from the Beautiful Autumn bundle shows itself pretty well too. This is a CASE of a card I saw by another demo: Dawn Olchefske. Thanks for the inspiration!

Beautiful Autumn Bundle
#1

Let’s take a peek at how we made this card.

  • cut a rectangle with Stitched Rectangle Dies from  a 2 x 4 piece of Pumpkin Pie cs. SAVE the outside trim!
  • Using the wonderful Autumn Punch Pack, punch the leaves and acorn. And quick tip… align the right side of the punch with the paper and punch, then move to the left side and align the left sign and punch, then punch the center. And if it helps even more, lightly draw a center line that can be erased after punching.
  • Slip a DSP scrap behind it and adhere with liquid glue. There are so many possibilities in this Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP pack, but I definitely wanted masculine and this check fit that perfectly.
  • Mat on a layer of Early Espresso cs with dimensionals. But wait – some texture… I played around with several things, paper, various ribbons, even other DSP, but settled on this from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. Layer and adhere with Stampin Seal then place on the Early Espresso cs.
  • Adhere another panel of Gilded Autumn DSP to the Early Espresso card base with liquid glue. (What I would do differently here… adhere DSP to Very Vanilla OR Pumpkin Pie layer, then to the card stock base.)
  • Stamp the birthday sentiment from the Best Year stamp set with Pumpkin Pie ink on Very Vanilla cs. Die cut using the Ornate Frames Dies.
  • Adhere both the sentiment panel and the Autumn Punch panel to the card using liquid glue.
  • For a bit of ‘glam’ and added texture – add the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the sentiment panel.

For the inside… and I really like how this turned out!

Beautiful Autumn Bundle – inside
#2

  • Adhere the saved ‘trim’ from the Stitched Rectangle onto a panel of Very Vanilla cs, using liquid glue.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set in Early Espresso ink.
  • Adhere the punched out leaves/ acorn (from the card front) with liquid glue.
  • Adhere the Very Vanilla panel to the card base – and voila – the card is complete.

For the envelope..

SU! Lots of Leaves Bundle

Hello again! The weather here in NJ is beginning to turn cool – and that means leavers are gonna fall…. and we have LOTS of trees on our property… which means raking, raking, raking. Before this sounds as though I’m in the complaint department – let’s look at today’s card – it’s an elegant fall card and it features the fabulous Love of Leaves bundle. Why a bundle? When purchasing a coordinating die set with a stamp set it’s 10% LESS when bought together – a great deal.

Love of Leaves Bundle #1

I started by choosing my paper – Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP. This guided me to Very Vanilla for a coordinating card stock (versus Whisper White). Thick Very Vanilla for the card base, Brushed Metallic 12 x 12 card stock to coordinate with the gold in the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and Very Vanilla – that’s it for papers. I wanted the Brushed Metallic paper to create a bit of shadow for my leaf, so I die cut this gorgeous leaf from the center of the panel I had cut. This ‘hole’ is covered by both the Very Vanilla card base and the Specialty DSP on top – so no one knows (but you and me!). Here’s a picture of how it looks from the back side.

Love of Leaves – die cut from Brushed metallic
#2

I die cut a rectangle using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and the 3rd smallest die from Very Vanilla cs and also die cut this gorgeous leaf from Very Vanilla at the same time. One of the special things about this bundle is how the leaves have an embossing portion that creates these wonderful impressions. OK… adhere the Very Vanilla leaf to the Brushed Metallic leaf using Stampin Seal. Adhere the leaf to the stitched rectangle with dimensionals. Then adhere this to the center of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP with liquid glue, and this to the Brushed Metallic and then onto the card base. Now all it needs is a double length of Linen Thread tied into a bow and attached with a glue dot.

Bundle
#3

For the inside, because this particular sheet of Specialty DSP coordinates with Mint Macaron, I added a panel as a layer to the card base. The Very Vanilla got special treatment along the left edge with one of the embossing dies in this die set. Then I stamped the sentiment in Mint Macaron ink. Adhere this panel to the mint Macaron and the card is complete.

#4

For the envelope I used a strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to adhere to the envelope flap. For the card front I ’embossed’ a portion of one of the leaves from the die set. Elegant!

Such a beautiful card and so EASY to do with this gorgeous bundle. One of the items that makes this card so simple to do is the new Metallic Plate that can be used with the new Cut & Emboss machine. Because the plate is metallic all over, once the die is placed on it, it doesn’t move!!! No need to hold it down with a sticky note or anything. It’s the best ever. So I’m going to show it on the product list, along with the die cutting machine, cuz these are ‘must haves’. Remember, when you shop with me and your order is over $50, you will receive a SU! item of your choice worth $10.

SU! Autumn Greetings Bundle

The other day I participated in a blog hop and the theme was Fall Frenzy – cute name for our theme! I was ‘on a roll’ and made another fall-themed card – here ’tis…

Autumn Greetings Bundle

It is made using the Autumn Greetings stamp set with coordinating dies, Autumn Essential Dies. Aren’t these wheat stalks perfect? And the pumpkins…. Here’s the deets:

Begin with Thick Very Vanilla for your card base; add a layer of Cajun Craze cs with liquid glue. Die cut several wheat fronds with the Autumn Essential Dies out of Crumb Cake cs and sponge dauber them with either Crumb Cake or Cajun Craze inks. Die cut the pumpkins: for the larger one I used Mango Melody cs for the outline die and Pumpkin Pie cs for the detail die; for the smaller I used Pumpkin Pie cs for the outline and Cajun Craze cs for the detail. Once I glued the detail die cut to the outline die cuts with liquid glue, I used a sponge dauber and sponged them with Crumb Cake ink to give them that aged look, as if they have just come from the pumpkin patch. 🙂  I also die cut a circle from Cajun Craze and another from Early Espresso. The Early Espresso piece I ran through the Forever Greenery embossing folder for some added texture.

Autumn Greetings Bundle

Now to begin the layering… Adhere a strip of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP to a strip of Cajun Craze and adhere to regular Very Vanilla panel with liquid glue. Adhere the circles with liquid glue to this strip.  Stamp the sentiment from the Autumn Greetings stamp set in Cajun Craze ink. Don’t you love this font? So fresh! Adhere the wheat fronds with liquid glue. I then took a short length of Braided Linen Thread and gently stretched it, pulling the threads almost apart. I attached this with a dab of liquid glue and placed the larger pumpkin over it that had dimensionals on the back. The smaller pumpkin also got dimesnionals. For the final touch I added several fun Artistry Blooms Adhesive- Backed Sequins.

Fun, fun… love all the texture and layers. And this can so easily be a masculine card if you need it to be. I often find it difficult to create a masculine card and I think this one fits that masculine category.
