Paper Pumpkin meets Seasonal Chums


The October 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit is amazing!
I can't wait to see Novembers Kit, it is supposed to coordinate with the October Kit.
Want the November Kit?  
Sign up HERE before November 10th!



I stamped the Deer in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him with Stampin' Blends.  I put the card together as directed in the Paper Pumpkin Kit, I added some extra glitter from my stash to make it look like my Deer is in the snow.

I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies for the snowflake.
Snowflake is cut out of Soft Sky Cardstock and added Dazzling Diamonds to it for some sparkle. In the center, I added a Glitter Enamel Dot. 

Next, I used the Card Front Builder Thinlits to die cut a tree out of Old Olive Cardstock and adhered it to the front of the card.

Nothing screams Chrismas like Red Tinsel from the Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack.  Tied a bow at the top of the card, to ensure that the bow stays in place, I placed a glue dot under it.

The sentiment is from the Merry Cafe` stamp set and stamped with Real Red ink.

I hope you give Paper Pumpkin a try, they are paper crafting fun in a box!

Happy Stamping,

Stampin' Blends are now available!



I am so excited to have alcohol markers again!
If you have never colored with them, I challenge you to give them a try.  The results are amazing. 

The flower from "You've Got This Stamp Set" is colored with Pumpkin Pie Light & Dark marker and Light Daffodil Delight on the tips of the petals.  The leaves were colored with Old Olive Light & Dark.  Stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  Make sure your stamped image is completely dry before coloring!

The card base is a standard A2 size on Thick Whisper White.  
Pumpkin Pie cardstock is cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
Whisper White Center cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
The background is stamped with Soft Sky and Sahara Sand, stamped off once.  I sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie ink with a sponge dauber.

Seasonal Chums Deer


I started out with a regular A-2 size card in Thick Whisper White cardstock.  The Garden Green panel is 3 1/2" x 4 3/4".
  
The Be Merry DSP is cut at 1/2" x 4 3/4" and 1" x 4 3/4".
I also used Whisper White to die cut a Stitched Oval and stamped the Deer with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and die cut him out with the coordinating die using the Big Shot.

The Sentiment is from the Merry Cafe` stamp set and stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  Using the Mini Tinsel Trim, I wrapped it around the Garden Green panel and tied a bow.
The Scalloped Oval is cut out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

Coming November 1st "Stampin' Blends" alcohol based markers!  As a Demonstrator, I was able to pre-order the markers.  The Deer is colored with those markers, I love how this card turned out!  
I can't wait for you to try Stampin' Blends!

The Oval and the Deer are both popped up on Dimensionals along with the Garden Green panel.


Happy Stamping,

Painted Harvest Wreath


Using the Painted Harvest Stamp Set on Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bottom with Pear Pizazz, then 
re-inked the stamp, turned the stamp and stamped again for a fuller looking wreath.  Next I used the second part of the stamp set and used Garden Green ink as the top layer.

Using Real Red ink to add some berries, Mini Tinsel Trim to make a bow, and added some Metallic Enamel Shapes.
Cut the circle with the Layering Circle Dies, along with some Red Glimmer paper. 
I also used paper from the Be Merry DSP pack.
The Sentiment is from the Christmas Pines stamp set, I stamped it on Whisper White and layered it with Real Red cardstock.  Using the Banner Triple Punch on the ends.

I love when I have stamps that are versatile and can be used in a totally different way!

Do you LOVE Designer Series Paper?
Then this is for YOU!


Happy Stamping,

Mixed Metals Christmas Card


Using the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP made this card easy, as there is gold, silver, and copper foil in this paper.

I also used Copper Foil Sheets as the backing for Merry Christmas, that was embossed with Copper Embossing Powder from the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle.

The Snowflake was die cut from Gold Glimmer Paper from the Seasonal Chums Bundle and added a 
Glimmer Enamel Dot to the center.

The background was done with Holly Embossing Folder.
I used half of a Foil Snowflake behind the sentiment.

The sketch is from Operation Write Home.

I really love how this turned out!
