I am so happy that it is finally starting to feel like fall here in Texas! I wanted to create some cards to celebrate the season! One of the bundles that I will treasure for a long time is the Colorful Seasons bundle! It is a must have for a new stamper too! It covers all the seasons and has such beautiful dies to coordinate with the images! Not to mention the paper, color combos, and accessories to boot!
Part of my monthly stamp club includes a technique. The members get a sample of the technique and a small blurb that explains how to create it again. When they first join, they receive a journal to put these in so they have it to look back on for a handy (and pretty) reference!
This card plays up the Emboss Resist technique. I just switched the embossing powder to Copper! I then used Sponge Daubers to rub Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler. (in that order) I started with the middle of the leaf towards the stem. I only used the Cherry Cobbler on the tips of the leaves. I then cut them out as well as one Copper Foil leaf.
I just love how the Copper Foil, Copper Embossing Folder, and Copper Thread make this card pop!
All through this month you can stock up on your favorite Designer Series Paper with the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE sale! (select papers on the list)
Don’t forget the deadline to order this month’s Creative Class To Go is October 20th! You can add some of the paper to your order too! Just use the host code on the image below!
I have found so many different ways to utilize the Wood Words Bundle! I needed a birthday card and came up with this rustic looking card! I got the color idea straight from the picture for this suite right in the catalog!
This card is super easy to re-create too! So, I made this a club card for my girls!
First, I stamped the floral bunch with Peekaboo Peach on to Peekaboo Peach paper. I then took 1 1/4″ pieces of Early Espresso paper & the Wood Textures DSP pack. If you tear slowly away from you the middle of the paper will not show. I did use a sponge and Early Espresso to distress the edges. Next I stamped the rooster with Cajun Craze and punched him out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch. Then I punched the Small Scalloped Circle with Cajun Craze paper. To give it that extra vintage feel, I crumpled up the paper and flattened it back out. To give the doily extra fluff, I folded it in half before adhering it behind the strips of ripped paper. I also used the Early Espresso to distress the doily.
I then cut out the cute tag with the tag from the Wood Crate framelit set. To finish the look, I tied a bow using the Linen Thread!

Remember how I like to use the same layout? Here is another card using the same layout as the previous post!! I actually was trying to make a different card and it failed. So I couldn’t waste this cute little pig!! So I just whipped up another birthday card! You can never have too many of those!
I used the Basic Black Archival ink to stamp the outline stamp of the pig. If you want to stamp and not include a sentiment attached to the stamp, then use a piece of scotch tape. You just place it over the words, stamp as usual, and take off the tape before stamping on your card stock. I then used an Aqua Painter and the top lid of the ink pad to color the image.
I thought the Wood Grain DSP paper pack would look perfect with this cutie! I finally bought the Classic Label punch and I love how it looks! And it’s quick too!

I am on a binge of this color combo!! I just adore Sweet Sugarplum and Pool Party together!! I made this for a dear friend/customer (that’s what happens in the crafting business-customers become dear friends) for her birthday. I had to make one because she has made all the other ones in my bin! LOL
Great excuse to finally play with the Garden Trellis embossing folder again and the just gorgeous Petal Garden DSP pack! I like to use the same layouts repeatedly and change them up a bit.
Just a simple card with lots of texture and elements to make it look elegant!
There is texture from the embossing folder, the doily, and the stitched oval shape. And of course lots of dimensionals!

I wanted to make a quick box to store some coordinating cards! So, I searched around and saw a video on how to make a box with the Envelope Punch Board. So quick and easy! I did stamp on the 12 x 12 Fresh Fig card stock once it was cut and ready to score.

I LOVE the new embossing paste!! I was playing around with it the other day and wanted to try coloring it! So easy! All you need is the Embossing Paste, Spatulas, a re inker, and a tray (o-r silicone mat).
I dropped about a half dollar sized amount onto the tray. Then I mixed about 4-5 drops of re-inker and mixed well. I also added Dazzling Diamonds to it, but that was after this card. Very pretty! And I just saw someone add scents to the paste! Scented cards!!
After you mix your paste to your desired color, then you can place your mask/stencil over your surface and spread the paste with the spatula. I swiped back and forth a few times and then scraped it even on top of the mask. Carefully pull up and let dry!
TIP: It dries very fast! Clean your mask and other materials as soon as possible with warm soapy water.
To make the lemons more realistic, I followed the Daffodil Delight with Versa Mark and Clear Embossing powder. Then I heat set it. Layered the lemons with dimensionals and some Linen Thread. I used this card as our club technique this month!
Don’t forget to get your bonus days coupons! For every $50 you spend this month, you get a $5 off to use in August emailed to you from Stampin up!
I am soooo happy that the Daisy Punch is back in stock! This is by far my favorite items so far! So easy to make quick cards like the one above! I literally made this in 5 minutes flat! I love to use the color combinations that they have in the Designer Series Paper designs! I just flip over the pack and read the colors used! To add more colors you can stamp off your inks for lighter shades of the ink pads! Gives you more mileage on your ink and color choices!
I just stamped color on color (Wisteria Wonder) and punched out 2 daisies. Used a couple glue dots to adhere together. Then I used my bone folder to fluff the petals. To create the fun fold, I cut the DSP paper to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Then I cut down the center with the Paper Trimmer (helpful because you control how far the blade cuts into your paper). Finally I folded the pieces back on themselves and placed some adhesive on the back to keep them flat. Crease with a Bone Folder to help. I finished it off with a Silver Faceted gem and took out my Calypso Coral marker to add the faux stitches.
