Fall Slim Card

I have been working on a Skinny card for a card swap.  It has been very difficult getting the layout I want.  There have been some good results and some not so good ones.  Today is one of the good results that I liked but decided not to use in the swap.  So I thought I would share it with you.

 

Stampin' Up!, Gorgeous Leaves, Pretty Pumpkins, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

There are two really awesome stamp sets used on this card.  The first is the Pretty Pumpkins stamps.  This trio of pumpkins is my favorite from that set.  And it comes as a Bundle, I just didn’t use the dies.  The second stamp set is the Gorgeous Leaves.  It is also a Bundle, and I did use two of the Dies.

I love how well these two stamp sets work together.  Fall leaves and pumpkins are like Peanut Butter and Jelly!  They just go together.  The sentiment is such a sweet one and is from the Pretty Pumpkin stamp set. I just love it.

Colors and Finishes

Normally I would say Paper instead of Color, but I did not use any Designer Series Paper on this card.  That is very unusual for me.  I did choose some of my favorites of the colors I think of for Fall.  They are Cinnamon Cider and Soft Succulent for the card base and layer.

The stamped leaves are more of the great Fall colors.  They are Merry Merlot, Cinnamon Cider with some speckles of Pale Papaya.

To finish the card I went to the Annual Catalog for some ribbon.  It is from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo.  The gingham is actually Just Jade instead of Soft Succulent, but the color matches very well.  The final touch was two die cut leaves from Merry Merlot cardstock.  These dies are so intricate (The name of the dies are Intricate Leaves!) that it really pops against the white cardstock.

A Birthday Brew

Today is the birthday of a friend.  She pretty much only drinks coffee, so I felt the need to break out the Brew Some Fun stamp set for her card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Brew Some Fun, Warm Wraps, Penguin Playmates, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

I gave away the stamp set in the beginning of the post.  It is the Brew Some Fun set.  It has tea and coffee in both images and sentiments.  I went with a pair of coffee cups sort of toasting each other.  The party hats are included in the set as well.  For the sentiment I went with the normal birthday on the front.  But the inside says “Let’s Brew Some Fun”.

Paper and Fun

The strip of DSP on the right hand side is from the fun Sale-A-Bration paper Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper.  This paper is going to be missed after these last few days of SAB.  It has great colors and a little of everything in images so it is very versatile.  These stripes are some of my favorite.  They are placed horizontal so that you could see all of th different colors.

Of course the card base and layer colors were pulled from the DSP.  The card base is Misty Moonlight and Fresh Freesia is the layer.  I went with the brighter Magenta Madness on the cups, as well as around the sentiment.  A few days ago I shared how I pull the Marker around the edge of a shape to give that outline.  Instead of another layer, I used that technique on the sentiment layer.  (Markers, with the exception of the Basic Black, can only be purchased in the Color Family.  But these are all In Colors, so not as much of an expense!)  The finishing touch is a 2020-2022 In Color Gem in Magenta Madness.

The 2nd Sale-A-Bration Is Winding Down

The Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper is still available.  It is a great choice from the SAB options.  Not only is is beautiful DSP, but it pairs wiht the Penguin stamp set and punch in the Mini Catalog.  There are only 6 days left to take advantage of this promotion.

Floral Thanks

The card I have to share with you today is a mix of stamps, dies, and DSP.  I love playing Mix & Match with the various products from Stampin’ UP!.  This layout is one that I will be making quite a few of I can tell.

 

Stampin' Up!, Color and Contour, Harvest Meadow, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

The flower image and the sentiment are both from the Color & Contour stamp set, which is part of the Color & Contour Bundle.  To achieve the scalloped shape of the DSP I used one of the Scalloped Contour Dies.  The flower image is stamped using Smoky Slate Ink.  It was colored using Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.

The sentiment is a gorgeous font.  I love a variety of fonts and this one is really nice.  Misty Moonlight Ink was chosen not only because it is such a pretty color, but to stand out and to match the DSP.  The sentiment is  stamped directly onto the card base.

Paper and Finishes

The card is a Thick White cardstock cut to 4 1/4 X 11 and folded in half.  I sometimes add a second layer of White in making this style card.  But today it is all just the one layer.  The DSP piece is from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper .  In my opinion you can never go wrong with shades of blue.  And this pattern is really pretty.

To finish this card, I die cut the DSP using the middle of the Scalloped Contour Dies.  There are five with a variety of different design of scalloped edges.  The die used for the flower is from the same die set.  To add just a bit of something else,  I used the White Bakers Twine to wrap around the DSP and finish with a simple bow.

A Dahlia Smile

Since Sale-A-Bration is winding down I thought I would share two of my favorite picks in one card.  It is a little bit of an odd mix of colors.  But the different patterns seem to work.

 

Stampin' Up!, Delicate Dahlias, Forever Fern, Peaceful Prints, Jackie Beers

 

Stamps

The Stamp set I chose as a favorite from Sale-A-Bration is the Delicate Dahlias.  Yes, it is one of the $100.00 product purchase requirement, but it is really nice.  The flower is a two step flower.  I chose Bumblebee Ink as the outline and Pale Papaya as the inside.  The leaves are two step as well.  They are Garden Green for the outline and Soft Sea Foam for the inside.  Those colors came from the Green DSP piece.

Delicate Dahlias has a couple of great sentiments included in the set.  However, I chose to go with the Smile sentiment from Forever Fern.  It is stamped directly onto the DSP.  That is something that packs a bit of a punch, and I generally forget to do it.

Paper

I chose the two pieces of the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper before I decided on anything else.  Not normally how I begin a card!  I love the tan plaid and wanted to use it.  The base of the card is Bumblebee cardstock, which matches the dahlia.  The Garden Green piece has flecks of a lighter green that led to the Soft Sea Foam leaves color.

The Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper is also from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  It is one of the $50.00 product purchase choices.  The paper matches the Peaceful Deer Bundle in the Mini Catalog.  The Deer Punch fits the pages of Deers on the paper.

Love A Clever Cat

Most of you are probably aware that I have Cats.  They definitely keep us on our toes and never stop surprising us with their antics.  My husband loves the little sweeties/devils as much as I do. So this card is for him. This card makes perfect sense if you have ever had a Cat.

 

 

Stamps

I know I say it very often, but I do LOVE Stampin’ Up! stamps.  Part of the reason is the versatility.  Even though this Clever Cats stamp set has quite a lot of Halloween images and sentiment, it also has every day pieces.  The cat in the box is a classic for any cat person.  Any box that comes into our house is hopped into as soon as it is empty.  And yes, that is wether they actually fit in it or not!

The sentiment I used, since it is for my hubby, is a little more personal than I usually use.  This sweet sentiment is from the Daisy Lane stamp set.  And it does totally fit the cat image as we sit and laugh at their antics on a regular basis.

Paper

To tie in the cardboard box I went with Crumb Cake as the card base.  The layer behind the stamped images is the new Kraft Paper that is in the Mini Catalog.  It is a bit stiffer than regular cardstock and actually feels like old time Kraft Paper.

The DSP is the Tiding Of Christmas Designer Series Paper.  This print does not scream Christmas at all.  It is more just some leaves and dots.  I wanted a bit of a different color to pair with the Crumb Cake and Kraft.  The Soft Succulent is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

The only finishing touch for this card is Cute Stars Adhesive Sequins.  I needed a Black piece since the cat is the only black I used.  A small star is pretty much always a win as an accessory.

The 2nd Sale-A-Bration Is Almost Over!!

There are some great products left in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.   I would hate to see you miss out on them as I am sure you have a Wish List on your desk.  At least I always do!!  Now is the time to mark off a couple of items.

And if you are interested in getting the Ultimate Bundle, that is the Starter Kit, now is definitely the time for that!!  The Free additional Bundle you can choose really makes this Join Promotion a Winner.  At least reach out to me and let’s talk.  You have nothing to lose in that.
