Fall Fun

2017_10_14IMG_2642 What’s nicer than having a hot drink on a chilly day in fall? I can’t get enough of the Merry Cafe #144965 stamp set and  the gorgeous Painted Autumn DSP from Stampin Up.  The layout is simple just a piece of Painted Autumn DSP#144613 and a cup cut using the Coffee Cups Framelits #144613 and then embellished the cup with stamps from the Merry Cafe set and another piece of DSP.

Perk Up

2017_10_09IMG_2620 I love everything about today’s card especially that it is fall and pumpkin spice season! I started with the fabulous paper in the Spooky Night #14610 DSP collection from Stampin Up.  I then made 3 cups using the Stampin Up Merry Cafe # 144965 photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Coffee Cups framelits #143745 and layered them on the card.

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.

Totally Trees

This is one of my favorite stamp sets in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  The Totally Trees #142198 is perfect for all seasons because there are so many trees of all shapes and sizes!

Paisely Wreath

2016_11_24img_1929

Happy Thanksgiving one and all.  Sorry for the crooked picture.  I mailed the card before I checked the quality of the picture. This card looks simple but took a lot of effort to complete because the intricate design of the leaf made cutting a challenge…. even with the Big Shot -so I just made 1.

For today’s card I used lots of leaves cut from the Paisley Framelits # 141849 and formed them in the shape of a wreath.  I randomly added sequins left over from the October My Paper Pumpkin kit.  I created a window using the Classic Label Punch #141491 and added the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (retired).

Cinderella Pumpkin

Today’s post is a result of both Cammie and I blogging and seeing what other creative people are doing with Stampin Up products.  I must admit when I saw this pumpkin I immediately thought it was pretty enough to be Cinderella’s pumpkin. Essentially the cards are the same (Cammie’s is on the left and mine is on the right).

We started out by texturing the background with the Woodland Texture Impressions Embossing Folder #139673 and then stamped the leaf image from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set (retired).  For the gorgeous pumpkin we used the Beautiful Branches Thinlits.  Cammie added a sentiment from the Suite Seasons #142206 in the hand cut frame from the Christmas Pines stamp set #141851.

Artistically Pleasing fall card

2016_11_21img_0409

Today’s card is full of texture from the razzleberry background that was textured with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143537 from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog. She then the main panel that Cammie made using the direct to paper method and lots of color.  She embossed the flourish from the now retired Everything Eleanor stampset in espresso powder.  To complete the card she cut leaves from the retired Beautiful Branches Thinlits from espresso cardstock and gold foil to create this stunning card.
