A Bright and Beautiful Day


Good morning! Today I have another fun card to share with you from last month's monthly class. Each month I host a monthly class offered to all of my customers. We create at least 2 cards and a 3D project, sometimes we make 3 cards. This past month we created 3 cards and today's card is one of them! It all depends on how intense our project is for that particular class.

When I saw this stamp set, Bright and Beautiful, I just had to pick it up. Stars have become my weakness and Stampin' Up! keeps creating fabulous star stamp sets that I fall in love with! I pulled out the wonderful All is Calm Designer Washi Tape specifically the lovely silver one and used the washi tape as an accent to the card base. I pulled out my Heat Tool and my Silver Stampin' Embossing Powder and my Versamark Pad to emboss these amazing images. I really love seeing this stamp set embossed, it makes it pop nicely and the overall feel of the card is very classy.

Grateful For You!

Good morning! Today I have another fun card to share with you from last month's monthly class. Each month I host a monthly class offered to all of my customers. We create at least 2 cards and a 3D project, sometimes we make 3 cards. It all depends on how intense our project is for that particular class.

Today I have a fun fall creating we made last month that we had a blast with! The fall is a time that I like to pull out the rich colors to really get the full Fall feeling. For this card we used the lovely For All Things Stamp Set. We also used some of the fun and rich Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper Pack and some wonderful tones of Hello Honey and Wild Wasabi cardstock with Cajan Craze layering. I simply love Cajan Craze , but I don't seem to grab it as much as I should, the color really has such a deep and inviting shade. All in all we were able to create a fun card that screams Autumn!

Monthly Stampin' Pretty Pals Blog Hop - Thanks!

 

Welcome to the November Pals Blog Hop, we are thankful you stopped by.  This month we are showcasing projects that show our thanks, including both thank you and Thanksgiving themed projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Wendy Klein at Doggone Delightful Stampin' on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing projects.
For my project today I wasn't sure where to start, but I think I love where I ended up! I decided to share some fun Thanksgiving projects using the Curvy Keepsake Die. If you haven't seen the fabulous Curvy Keepsake Die from the Holiday Catalog you are missing out. I got this die a few weeks ago and at first I didn't pull it out to play, but as soon as I did I was hooked! The first project I created with this fun die were some tealight lanterns. The second time I pulled this die out I created this darling pumpkin!
That's right the Curvy Keepsake Die can help you create all sorts of things! I used some of our Pumpkin Pie cardstock for the box plus I cut out some fun leaves for the pumpkin by using the Fall Fest Framelit Dies. Another favorite of mine from the Holiday Catalog! A pair of leaves were simply perfect to finish off this pumpkin that I added to the stem with a bit of our Linen Thread after I used or 1/16" Hole Punch on each leaf.
 
I didn't stop there for today's hop. While I have shared the Pumpkin boxes already to some people and at an event I haven't shared this next one...my version of a Turkey using the Curvy Keepsake Die! I used the Curvy Keepsake Die for the body of my Turkey and of course I used the Feather Framelits to create his tail, but that's only the beginning. I also used our 1/2" Circle Punch for the eyes, the excess from some 1/8" Hole Punch for the pupils, the top of our Tree Punch for the beak, plus the Heart Punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack cut in half for the snoods. Isn't he just darling!

I do hope you enjoyed what I had to share with you today, I think both project would be perfect to decorate for your Thanksgiving! The next stop is Dawn Tidd at Tiddbits from Dawn on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next month.

For You!

Good morning all! I have been so busy getting ready for events that I seem to have forgotten to schedule a few posts of creations for you. I do hope you will all forgive me. I did spend some time this weekend setting up posts for a bit so you should have plenty to enjoy! Today I am sharing with you a card I used for one of my monthly classes a few months ago. I had thought I shared this one with you, but I don't see in on the blog anywhere which means I am posting it today!

I created this card using a few different techniques. First we created the fabulous background paper using the shaving cream method. I love playing with fun techniques, even if they can be a bit messy. We used several colors from the Subtles Collection to achieve this color pallet. Then we used two different paper sizes to create the Quarter Fold card base. The flaps unfold to show the center panel for your message! We used three fabulous stamp sets all together and the results really work to create this fun and soft card. First we used the Flower Shop stamp set with matching Pansy Punch then we layered the flower we picked with a flower from the Petite Petals stamp set and matching Petite Petals Punch. Now it still needed something so I pulled out my wonderful Tag Talk stamp set to finish off this card with a 'For You' sentiment.
