Count My Blessings Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today's handmade autumn card can be made in 3 Steps with the Count My Blessings stamp set.  The Beautiful You Stamp set plays the supporting role.  

Card Making in 3 Steps

 Step One-Rub a piece of 4" x 5-1/4 with an embossing buddy to prep it for embossing, then stamp images from the Count My Blessings stamp set and emboss with gold embossing powder.

Step Two-Color the images with markers.  I used Fresh Fig, Old Olive, Soft Suede and Cajun Craze.  You made want to heat set after coloring to be sure that the inks are set.

Pick a Pumpkin Gets Trendy

Pick a Pumpkin Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Can you believe that the first day of autumn is Friday!  So what's your fall decorating style?  Is it the traditional oranges, reds and greens like this Vintage Leaves Card?  Or do you prefer the trendy look of whites, golds and neutrals?  Today, the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set went trendy with a gold pumpkin treat bag and a handmade card.

For the treat bag, I tucked a handful of kisses in a cello bag and tied it up with gold edged ribbon.

For the Tag, I cut a gold fold pumpkin with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies.

Next, I stamped "you're the best" from the All Things Thanks Stamp Set and embossed it in gold.

The Classic Label Punch made it quick and easy to finish up.

Whether you like the traditional bright fall card or you prefer the trendy neutral look, fall is all about the textures.  For my Pick a Pumpkin card, I used the Layered Leaves Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder and a length of Burlap Ribbon for a textured background.  I'm really impressed with all the cuteness in the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set.  Isn't the Patterned Pumpkin adorable?

Vintage Leaves Handmade Autumn Card

Vintage Leaves Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Autumn is fast approaching.  What does that mean to you?  Cooler Days, colorful autumn landscapes, High School Football games, Sweater Weather and hot cocoa are just a few things that come to mind.  Today, I tried to capture an autumn look with a handmade card and the Vintage Leaves Stamp Set.  The Holiday Catalog has so many, many new and exciting products that we sometimes forget some of the fabulous finds in the Annual or Big Catalog, such as the Vintage Leaves Stamp Set, the Leaflets framelit dies and the Dynamic Impressions Cable Knit Embossing Folder.  

Vintage Leaves Stampin' Up!

 Autumn Card Tips and Tricks

Autumn is all about texture and color, so I stamped maple leaves across my Pumpkin Pie Card Stock, then for good measure, I embossed the whole thing with the Cable Knit Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The leaves are simply stamped Tone on Tone with Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Inks.  I then cut them with the Leaflets dies.

Gold Facet Gems  just a little bit more dazzle to an already bright and beautiful card.

I stamped "You are Amazing" with Early Espresso ink onto a Delicate White Doily.

 

Color Inspiration for today's card came from the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge-Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive  and for dessert leaves.  I will be participating in the Splitcoast Color Challenge every Tuesday from now through the end of March 2018.  And I am delighted to say that I will be  joining the Splitcoast Color Challenge Team for 6 months starting in October.  I hope that you will join me on this colorful adventure.  Go ahead, Kick start your paper crafting with a color challenge.
