Painted Autumn

2017_09_30IMG_2639 Despite the record high temperatures we have been experiencing in Ohio recently, it is officially fall.  I used the Painted Harvest #144613 DSP from Stampin Up to add the fall flavor to this card.  I used the 1/4″ Copper Trim #144179 to hide the seam. I added a coffee cup cut using the Coffee Cup Framelits #143745 and stamped the sleeve using the Merry Cafe #144965 photopolymer stamp set.  To complete the card, I hand cut pumpkins from a piece of the painted harvest DSP.

A little bit Country

When I received the invitation to my cousins wedding, I knew that I was going to make a card for the lovely bride and groom to match the invite.  I used the Wood Textures DSP #144177 as the background and then had cut the antlers.  Once I had the antlers in place, I cut a sunflower out of a piece of the Stampin Up Painted Autumn DSP #144613 and then I added the hand cut roses and a mini tag with Mr and Mrs tied with a wee little linen bow.  To complete the card, I added the embossed sentiment.

Congrats Brad and Steph! The wedding was gorgeous and a beautiful evening.

Delightful Birthday

2017_09_28IMG_2590Today’s post is another CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from page 80 of the Stampin Up 2017-2018 annual catalog.  I used scraps of leftover pieces from the Delightful Daisy DSP #144137 and the Wood Textures DSP #144177 to create the layered background.  I added a floral embellishment from the Bunch of Blossoms #141573 stamp set and the coordinating Blossoms Builder #141469 punch. I wrapped a piece of the 1/4 ” Copper Trim before adding the oval with the birthday sentiment from the Cool Treats #142982 stamp set.

Quick and Bold

2017_09_26IMG_2600 Lately the trend has been to stamp a bold font directly onto a patterned paper.   So I decided to try it using the now retired Botanicals For You (now retired) font directly on a piece of the Delightful  Daisy DSP #137547.  I added a piece of coordinating ribbon to finish the look on page 80 of the Stampin Up annual catalog.

HO X 3

2017_09_25IMG_2455It’s already the 25th of the month so that means time for a Christmas post.  I went with a traditional color scheme with lots of layers and textures.  I started out with red base and used the Softly Falling #139672 TIEF from Stampin Up to texture the base layer.  I added an emerald envy green layer textured using the Holly TIEF #141634.  The sentiment is from the Greetings from Santa stamp set and layered on a seties of circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits #141634 and the coordinating Layering Circles Framelits #141705 and finished up with a sweet bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit #137547.

Daisy Thanks

2017_09_24IMG_2605 For today’s p ost I used mostly products in the Stampin Up Delightful Daisy product suite.  The background DSP is from the Delightful Daisy DSP #144137.  I also added a strip of black and white polka dot from the now retired Pop of Pink DSP.  I stamped the daisy and leaves using the Daisy Delight #143669 stamp set and then punched it out using the Daisy punch #143713.  The sentiment is from the Daisy Delight onto a hand cut banner and I finished by adding sweet bow from thick bakers twine.

Hello Fall

2017_09_22IMG_2643 It’s always sad to say good bye to summer, but it’s great to welcome fall with the pumpkin spice craze.  Stampin Up even got into the pumpkin spice season this year by including the Merry Cafe #144965 stamp set in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  The Merry Cafe set is intended to supplement the Coffee Cafe #143677 stamp set and the coordinating Coffee Cup Framelits # 143745 in the Stampin Up annual catalog.  To add a fall flavor to this card I used paper from the Painted Autumn #144613 DSP collection.

Pop Up Thanks

These pictures don’t do this gorgeous and super creative pop up card that I received from my friend and SU customer Sheri. Sheri used the Wood Words Stampin Up Bundle #145315 that includes the Wood Words stamp set and the coordinating Wood Crate Framelit dies to create the darling pop up 3D wooden crates.  The wooden crates are cut using the Wood Textures DSP #144177 to make them more realistic,  The sentiments and flowers were stamped using the Jar of Love # 141587 and the coordinating Everyday Jars Framelits #141490 to complete this stunning card.
