Thoughts of You in Autumn

What a lovely fall color combination in our Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. Cajun Craze, copper foil, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, gold foil, Mint Macaron, and Very Vanilla are gorgeous together and represent the fall season well. Here is a card I made featuring the Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set with a bit of Gilded Autumn paper and its wonderful colors. What a beautiful card to send to someone you've been thinking of.

The 2 little birds & birdhouse are all on 1 stamp. To get 2 colors of ink on this one stamp, I colored directly onto the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers in Crumb Cake & Real Red before stamping the image onto the card stock. No ink pad used for the birds & birdhouse.

Gnome for the Holidays

I don't know about you, but with all the stressed and changes of this year, I sure am looking forward to the holidays. I'm getting an early start on all my holiday paper crafting. Here's a look at two of my recently created cards. These Holiday Gnomes are just toooooooo cuuuuuuuute. I can hardly stand it. I smile every time I look at them. This layout is so easy to replicate with a piece of DSP for the background and 3 coordinating strips of DSP. And the Layering Oval Dies are just perfect for showing off these cute holiday gnomes.

I love the Gnome for the Holiday Stamp Set combined with the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper. I used coordinating Stampin' Blends to color. You can find cutting dimensions and supplies below the photos.

I think Ms. Gnome is excited to start her holiday decorating, baking, and stamping, of course. Isn't she cute with that little snicker on her face.

I used a Sponge Dauber and Daffodil Delight ink pad to "illuminate" the star.

I often times like to make my inside layer match the card front layer. The Whisper White card stock on the inside of my card measures 3 3/4" x 5 1/2", the same size as my DSP on the front of the card.Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set & Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

 

Just another look at these two cuties...

These In Colors Really Pop!

Look at the way the In Colors "pop" against the black on this card. I received this card created by my SU! demonstrator friend, Tamra Davis in a recent card swap. While the card is simple to make, it is absolutely stunning with the bright colors against the Basic Black card stock. While it appears that the In Color Designer Series Paper strips were simply adhered to the Basic Black card front, that is not the case.

A Little Bird Told Me

Aren't these birds from the Posted for You Stamp Set so cute? They were very easy to color. I colored mine to look like robins using my Stampin' Blends markers. Change out colors and make them any kind of bird you love or ever a variety of birds. Stampin' Up! has several other coloring tools you could use in place of Stampin' Blends if you like: Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pens, Stampin' Write Markers.

The Good Things in Life

The good things in life are better with you! There are so many people that I could send cards with this lovely sentiment. - family members, friends, loved ones, and stampin' friends like you. Card making is one of those good things in my life that really is better because of YOU and all my Stampin' Peace customers and followers who allow me the opportunity to share what I love to do. What an awesome job this is!

"The Good Things in Life are better with you" sentiment is a feature product in today's card and free project sheet. This card features the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set and Tasteful Labels Dies along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. Take a look at the photos then be sure to download the Free Project Sheet.

 

So many wonderful details come together to make these cards fabulous!

The Tasteful Touches Stamp Set has several meaningful sentiments. And the size, shape, and stitched detail of the Tasteful Labels Die I used is absolutely perfect for the sentiment on these cards. Don't you agree?

The paper I chose from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper collection looks like real woven fabric. You can actually see fibers and threads of various colors and shades. The Early Espresso Faux Suede Ribbon adds a layer of soft texture. Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, Tasteful Labels Dies, & In Good Taste Designer Series Paper

 

The two stamped feathers add an unexpected bit of interest in the otherwise plain corner of the card front.

You can use small embellishments to draw attention to specific words in your stamped sentiments as I did with the silver Metallic Pearls on these cards. I used them to accent the word 'better' on one card and 'you' on the other. I like both!

Timeless friendship

Here's a simple yet elegant card to help you to reach out to a friend. We all love happy mail, but now that happy mail is more important than ever while we are all trying to stay safe and healthy and therefore not gathering in person. I love this sentiment of timeless friendship from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set and loved pairing it with Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper to make this pretty spring card.

Order now to avoid disappoint later. AND, if you order this month, you will qualify for a free Sale-A-Bration product when you order $50 or more (before sh/tax).

Tropical Oasis DSP meets So Sentimental Stamp Set

Working in product suite can make creating easy as suites have it all - stamps, bundles, Designer Series Paper, embellishments, ribbons & trims. But mixing products from various themed suites and bundles expands the creative possibilities of what we can do with all of our products. And the possibilities are ENDLESS! 

My Free Downloadable Project Sheet today shows you a card I made with a beautiful paper from Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper and a stamp & coordinating die from the So Sentimental Bundle. I did this because I love the cheerful florals of the Tropical Oasis DSP but wanted a larger thank you sentiment and fun die to cut it out with, thus the So Sentimental Bundle. Coordinating colors, ribbon, and embellishment bring all these products together for a pretty thank you card.
