Pretty Copper Pumpkin

Pick a pumpkin 2

Pick a Pumpkin is an adorable bundle to create all your fall cards!  It even has jack o’ lantern faces for Halloween projects! I didn’t realize how much could be made using this set!  The Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits really spoke to me!  I immediately thought of using Copper Foil with the lined pumpkin!  Look how cute it is!

I don’t mind fussy cutting items out, but I love it when there are coordinating dies that make these cards a snap!  I highly recommend investing in the Magnetic Plate for the Big Shot!  It really helps keep the dies in place and is a sanity saver!

I used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder to create the texture on the Early Espresso piece.  I used a variety of cut out shapes with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, and Crushed Curry to make it feel like fall!  My Stitched Shapes Framelits are my go to for sentiments.  I love the extra detail that it adds to your card! Pick a Pumpkin

I topped it off with a little Wink of Stella and some linen thread! I love how it turned out!  This could also be a great masculine card too!

Painted Fall Flowers

JVHL4014

I LOVE this bundle!  I have heard that the Painted Harvest Bundle has been our top seller from the Holiday Catalog!  Do you need a copy mailed to you?  Let me know!

I made this one for our monthly club.  I stamped the smaller of the sunflowers with Pumpkin Pie and then followed it with Crushed Curry for the bigger flower.  The center is Chocolate Chip and Wink of Stella.  I also used Old Olive ink to stamp off the filler leaf stamp and used full strength ink for the leaf detail stamp. Next, I used a sponge with Early Espresso to distress the edges of the card stock and DSP.  To add depth and texture, I added dimensionals and linen thread.

Painted Harvest 1

When I saw the preview of the Holiday Catalog, the Painted Harvest just called my name! Of course it was first on my list when we could pre-order (one of the many perks of being a demo!) from the catalog this month!  I still want to play with color combinations-and I have seen some gorgeous ones on the blogosphere!

This one will be a card for my Sweet & Simple card class on Tuesday, August 29th! (if you are local, come join us!  Just RSVP 7pm-8:30pm)

To make this card, I used Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight for the two yellow colors.  This set is a 2 step stamp set that makes your cards pop!  I aimed for lining up the center with the 2nd stamp.  It doesn’t matter which one goes first. I then used Garden Green and the more water colored fern stamp to make the background.  Next, I followed up with Chocolate Chip for the center and used Wink of Stella (I really need help….) for the centers! I thought a textured background piece was perfect! So I chose the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing folder.  I added some distressing with a sponge and lightly brushed it across with Chocolate Chip ink.

Painted Harvest 2

The Painted Harvest come in a bundle option that includes a Leaf Punch.  It’s pretty darn cute to add a quick accent to your card!  To finish it off, I added some Linen Thread and the sentiment.  All done!

Sweet & Simple Daisy Delight

IMG_2365

I am really addicted to the Daisy Delight Bundle!  You can make so many different cards, scrapbook pages, and 3-D projects!  I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class & Card Class at the Cancer Support Community Center that I hold once a month.  A fellow friend/demonstrator here in Frisco showed me a similar card and I had to make my own twist on it!

First, I punched out a Whisper White daisy with the Daisy Punch and placed it aside. Then I used a 2 7/8″ square of Calypso Coral and placed a dot in the center.

CAIE7283

I took my ruler and measured corner to corner.  It was 4″ so I marked lightly at 2″ and then rotated to measure the opposite corners.  I marked that at 2″ to get me close to perfect center.  This way when I punched it, I could see the center.

When you place the Calypso Coral (with dimensionals on the back) on top of the Whisper White, you create a daisy from the negative space.  I placed the Whisper White Daisy on top rotated to may a fluffy daisy.

I then add the beautiful Calypso Coral  Ombre’ Ribbon and matted the daisy with Basic Gray.  I did use Wink of Stella on the center of the daisy.  I stamped off the solid center with Smoky Slate, then followed with full strength of Smoky Slate.  Then toped it off with the Wink of Stella.

Watercolor Daisies

JRQV8484 (1)

I really love the Daisy Delight stamp set and it’s wild flower stamps!  I was just playing around with water color paper and this card was in the works!

I first stamped the flowers on dry watercolor paper and then lightly spritzed the paper.  After it was dry, I took the Aqua Painter and some Pear Pizzazz ink and lightly created a background. I added Soft Sky ink for the sky.

I wanted a delicate feel to this card so I added the Paper Doily and some light splatter to the card base.

Delicate Faux Linen

final-10

This was one of the techniques that came to mind when I first saw the Colorful Seasons bundle!  Faux Linen was one of the very first cards I made over 9 years ago!  I am surprised that it’s taken me this long to do that technique again!  We made this card for our stamp club this month!  Super simple!!

  1. Use a neutral or light color card stock for your base.  I used Soft Sky in this photo.
  2. Take a piece of tissue that you use for gift wrapping.  Stamp desired images on it. Then wad it up one to two times and flatten it out. I chose not to stamp on the tissue here.
  3. Use your Tombo Multi Purpose glue and apply to the whole card base using a sponge piece.  (I store mine in a baggie to keep it moist).
  4. Gently use your fingers to lay your tissue down and smooth out most of the wrinkles.  You want some.  (Elmer’s glue works too, but it tears the tissue easily).
  5. Let dry and attach to your card!

I was able to stamp the sentiment directly on it when it was dry.  I also used the Fine Tip Glue pen to attach the branch.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere the flowers together.  There is a whole piece and a detailed piece to make 3 different flowers.  cherry blossom

I then used a blender pen with Berry Burst to color the centers.  A pearl added the finishing touch!

Hope you enjoued this card as much as I did making it!  LOVE cherry blossoms!  You can order this and other items at my website! Remember to get your loyalty rewards too!  Any order of $150 or more is eligible for host benefits!
