Fall Double Z Card

I am sharing more of Stampin’ Up!s beautiful Designer Series Paper today.  And I have added some gorgeous dies that you will really want to use for Fall.  Fall is right around the corner, and then holidays, Oh My!!!  But let’s start with Fall.

 

Stampin' Up!, Gathered Leaves Dies, Waterfront, Colorful Seasons Dies, Jackie Beers, Come To Gather DSP

And here is the side view of the Double Z Fold.

 

 

I love how this card stands so perfectly.  I made one of these cards almost a year ago.  You can view that card HERE.  It was a Fall card as well.

I used the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper for this card.  I paired it with Merry Merlot Card Stock, but then added the Thick Whisper White to brighten it a bit.  The white leaves are cut from the Seasonal Layers Dies.  The sentiment I chose , which is from the Waterfront set, fit perfectly in the one.  The solid Cajun Craze leaves are from the Gathered Leaves Dies in the upcoming Holiday catalog.  They are a die and embossed at the same time type die.  I LOVE them!!

The only extras I added were the Calypso Coral Satin Ribbon and the one Holiday Rhinestone on the bottom white leaf.  I felt it needed a touch of bling.

I hope you liked today’s project.  And I hope you will return tomorrow.  I have the measurements listed just below here and the supplies are at the bottom of the post.

Together

Today’s project is a cute little card that uses unexpected stamp sets.  I adore humorous stamp sets.  Sometimes they are just the perfect way to deliver a message.

 

I think this chick is adorable.  Plus I don’t know if you have noticed all of the beautiful paper in the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  I have used it for a couple of cards recently.  It just seems to match the theme of my card.

The chick is from the Birds of A Feather stamp set in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  It has birds that fit a variety of holiday occasions.  For today’s card I paired it with a sentiment from a different Holiday Catalog set titled Gather Together.  You may remember I used that set last week for the Fall/Pumpkin card.  You are getting sneak peeks at the great products coming up in a little over a week.

I used the Stitched Nested Labels die to showcase the chick.  I cut off the top of it straight and it makes the perfect banner.  I used some creative license on the coloring of the bird.  To tie that to the DSP, I used the Nature’s Twine wrapped around the banner.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will return on Monday for another week of new products!

Country Sunshine for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around SUNSHINE. The Sun is the single most important source of energy for life on Earth – it guides our clocks, calendars and planting schedules. We may be enduring a heat wave this week, but we still associate the Sun with positivity, joy and renewal. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Looking through my stamps for a “sunshine” idea was a bit difficult.  I realized there is only one or two possible “sun” shapes and almost no sentiments.  How can that be???  But I finally found the sentiment that spoke to me and made a card to match the sentiment.  I understand that is a bit of an odd way of going about things, so I hope you like my final product.

 

 

When I made my card, I had not seen the opening paragraph that Brian wrote for this hop.  It seems to go right along with the sentiment I chose.  WooHoo!!!

I love the Country Road stamp set and was very happy that it was a carryover to the new catalog.  The pieces in it are perfect for a collage type card.  And the grass/weeds are wonderful in the background.  They are even slightly slanted for that “wind at your back” theme in the sentiment.

I sponged the background of the card using the Stampin’ Sponges and soft colors.  The sun is pretty bright made using Pineapple Punch.  The sky is Seaside Spray and the grass background is Pear Pizzaz.    I did not want the grass to be overly dark so the grass/weeds in Crumb Cake would show more.

The sentiment is also from the Country Road stamp set.  The layered sentiment section is from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits. Both pieces are included.  I added four of the Metallic Pearls for some rustic look to my sign.  The Braided Linen Thread seemed the perfect finishing touch.

A Little Rain

I was so happy when Fable Friends carried over to the new Annual Catalog.  It reminds me of the childrens fairy tales of my youth.  Another of our Facebook challenges last week was simple an Animal.  I debated for just a minute and then went with the Goose from Fable Friends.

 

 

I paired a couple of stamp sets to make this card.  I love that the Goose is wearing a raincoat, so that was my starting point.  I wanted to give her a bright and cheery coat to wear in the rain.

I paired High Tide to get the puddled water and the grass.  The rain came from Birthday Backgrounds, and the sentiment from Love What You Do.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Framelits for the sign.  This is the trick again of cutting it out with the die leaving the excess length towards one end.   Then re-inserting it to the point you need for the proper length.  The stitching makes this so easy to do, as you simply press the stitches back onto the die.  That way you know it is lined up properly.

Go For It

I am not sure why masculine cards are , or at least seem to be, hard to make.   What if masculine cards are our everyday cards just in a different color?  I believe the project I have for you today is one of those cards. It does not scream masculine, but the colors I chose lean that direction.

 

 

This is a really quick card to make.  The longest time part is the embossed basket weave.  And now after my opening paragraph, I can see this done in lighter colors and perfect for anyone.

I am not sure why I got on the masculine talking point.  Maybe because this card was intended for a male???  Who knows with me.  But I hope I have given you food for thought.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I really appreciate it and hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.

Cow Love

I will say up front that I made this card a few days ago.  I was so surprised when I checked my Stampin’ Up! Up-Line Brian King’s blog yesterday and saw a very similar card.  I dd not want you , or him, to think I copied his card.  Although it is an acceptable practice and is called CASEing.

Anyway, I made today’s card in response to the Royal Challenge we are doing on our Team Facebook page while Brian is off on the SU Incentive Trip.  I also sent it the next day to a couple I met in my travels that own a cattle ranch.  I thought of them as soon as I saw this awesome Over The Moon stamp set.

 

 

I believe I have said it before, but I think these cows are adorable.  I paired the High Tide set with the cow to get the dirt and grass for the field.

The beautiful color I chose is the new In Color Rococo Rose.  I think the name is sweet as is the color.  The plaid is from the 2019-2021 In Color Paper Stack of 6X6 DSP.  I gave it a small border of white to mimic the white showing with the cow.

The cow is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored with Stampin’ Blends.  It was die cut with the Layering Ovals Dies and backed with a scallop die from the Layering Ovals.

Here is a view of the inside and the envelope.  I was going cow crazy on this card!

 

 

Thank you for visiting today!  I really do appreciate it and hope you will return on Monday for more new projects.
