Mercury Pumpkin for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s September Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around AUTUMN. There is so much to love about the transition from summer to winter, and we are excited to share our Autumn-themed projects 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.

For me Autumn or Fall is falling leaves, pumpkins, and plaid flannel shirt.  So I have created a card with these things in mind.  The icing on the cake is the new Mercury Vellum that Stampin’ Up! has debuted in the Holiday Catalog.

 

Stampin' Up!, Harvest Hellos, Mercury Vellum, Gather Together, Jackie Beers

 

This card includes all of the things I mentioned as describing Autumn/ Fall to me.  It is actually layers of the things I love.  I used two different pieces of the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.  The Merry Merlot and Cajun Craze background are layered with the gorgeous multi-color plaid.

The Mercury Vellum is one of my new favorites.  It is a bit thicker than regular vellum card stock.  I stamped on it with Black StaZon Ink.  Then I used the Apple Punch from the Harvest Hellos Bundle to punch the vellum as well as the Cajun Craze layer behind it.  I felt like it looked better with the Cajun Craze showing through the clear spaces than the plaid from my banner.  Although there is nothing wrong with a plaid pumpkin in my book!

The apple punch includes a stem and leaf.  I punched just the leaf from Pretty Peacock card stock and adhered it along with the stem, made from Copper Trim Ribbon, to the back of the pumpkin.  The embossed leaves are from the Gathering Leaves Dies.  I love that they emboss and cut at the same time.

The sentiment is from the Gather Together Stamp set.  It pairs with the Gathering Leaves Dies.  The sentiment is punched out using the Timeless Label Punch.  I added just a touch of bling to one corner of the sentiment piece by adding a silver Metallic Pearl.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Sue Jackson at Just Peachy Stamping. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Hey There Fall

Fall is on my mind!  Not that the weather here in Georgia feels like fall, Oh My!!!  But, I have another Fall card to share with you today.  This one uses , as I am prone to do, the back side of a Designer Series Paper that you would not say is Fall.

 

I think this Linen Look DSP is gorgeous.  Even with the photo, it seems you could reach out and touch it. Surprisingly it is from the Pressed Petals DSP.  Several of the pages have a linen look in the background.  This sheet is all linen look.

I paired the gorgeous DSP with the Harvest Hellos Bundle.  It has the Apple Builder Punch and the apple and/ or pumpkin in the  stamp set.   The pumpkins behind are stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink and colored with Pumpkin Pie stampin’ Blends.  The front pumpkin is stamped in Cajun Craze ink on Pumpkin Pie card stock.

The cute little “Hey There” tag is from the stamp set as well.  It says “Hey There, Pumpkin”.  I did not want to use all of that.  To omit what I did not want, I inked the Hey There with a Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  (It is the only marker you can buy individually).  I stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch.  I fed the end back into the punch to make the banner end.

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you will come again tomorrow before the long Holiday weekend. Remember that Saturday is the last day to take advantage of this Join Promotion for Stampin’ Up!  I really would love to have you on my team.  Becoming a Demonstrator was one of the best choices I ever made!!

Gather Together

Today’s card is my first card from the Holiday Catalog!  WooHoo!!  It is an awesome catalog.  They always are, and each time I say this one is the best.  It is true once again!

I am sharing a Fall or Thanksgiving card today.  As always, the Designer Series Paper is fabulous!  I love the colors they have paired in this pack.  It is called Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.  I have also used the Gather Together stamp set.  The set has matching dies, but I did not use those on this one.

 

Do you agree on the beautiful DSP?  The Pretty Peacock really pops, and it pairs well with the Early Espresso and Sahara Sand.  Once again, the DSP takes the focal point.

The sentiment and background are cut with the Layering Squares Dies.  The pieces are raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the Braided Linen Trim runs beneath the square.  I taped the ribbon to the back and then made a bow to glue dot to the front.  That is the simple way of getting a perfectly snug ribbon and bow!

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have all of the supplies listed at the bottom of the post.

Thankful

I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving today!  Spending time with those we love are , at least for me, the best part of the day.  So wishes for a day of happiness, as well as Thanksgiving, to you all.

My card today is a quick and simple stamping card, #simplestamping.  This was a challenge from Sara Douglass at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event.  She challenged us to do more Simple Stamping.  I think I do that pretty much all the time.

 

Stampin' Up!, Falling For Leaves, Wishing you Well, Jackie Beers

Falling For Leaves, 147680

 

The beauty of this card is from the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper. I hate that it is out of stock.  But I paired it with an unexpected soft color of Mint Macaron.

The only thing I did a little bit different here is the Cajun Craze curved branch.  This is from the Falling For Leaves stamp set and is a straight piece.  Since it is in photopolymer though, I can slightly curve it.  I wanted to add it to the wreath and curving it as I placed it on the clear block worked perfectly.

Thank you very much for stopping by today.  I very much appreciate it and hope to see you tomorrow.  I hope you have a great day doing whatever you love!

Thankful Heart for #GDP163

 

Today is another of my Stamp Club Fall Swap cards.  It also fits perfectly with the challenge from Global Design Project #163.  That is to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary/Birthday.  And to share what we all love about Stampin’ Up!.  For me, Stampin’ Up! is the definition of Friends and Sharing.  I have made some fabulous and longtime friends through Stampin’ Up!.  I cherish them all and am so thankful for what brought us together.  So my card today fits perfectly on that idea of a Grateful Heart.

 

Falling For Leaves, 147680

 

I shared this type card once before on a Blog Hop.  It is the Double Z Fold Step card.  It sounds complicated but is super easy to make.  I love easy that packs a WOW.

This card layout does require designer series paper.  On this one, I mixed some DSP.  My favorite part is the sentiment though.  I LOVE that saying, as well as the mixture of fonts.  I am crazy for a mix of fonts.

Here is a side view of the Double Z.

Hello Everyone !!

I hope I still have my loyal followers here today.  I had an awesome two week vacation in France, but now I am back to share new projects with you.

The weather in France was warmer than expected and I came home to a bit cooler temperatures.  That was an unexpected pleasure.  This put me in the holiday spirits, plus realizing that Halloween is in two days!  Yikes!!!  So I covered all of the upcoming holidays in one project for you.  And it is a quick one as well.

 

Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers, Pillow Boxes, Kraft Pillow Boxes, Takeout Treats, Many Blessings, Trick or Tweet

Kraft Pillow Boxes, 147018

 

I created treat boxes for each of the upcoming holidays.  All of these were really quick.  I could have kept going on each one of the themes.  With the Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and great seasonal stamp sets, the ideas are just endless for decorating these little boxes.

The great part of these boxes are the price.  You get 10 boxes for $5.00.  That is an awesome deal!  They are large enough to hold a variety of candies or small gifts.  These are fairly basic in the designs.  I can see the beauty in coming up with a theme and creating a basket of these to have by your door for holiday guests or to take to a gathering.

Thank you for visiting today.  I really appreciate you hanging around for my return from vacation.  The supplies I used on the boxes are all listed at the bottom of the post.
