Stampin' Up Howl-o-ween card

Today's project started in one direction and changed course pretty quickly. I love this set from the Holiday catalog and the best part is that there's a framelit for all of the images except the sentiment. Colors used on the sentiment are Blackberry Bliss and Tangelo Twist and the spider was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The Happy Hauntings DSP was cut and adhered to the bottom of the Basic Black card stock and then the owl was stamped in Early Espresso and die cut with the matching framelit and popped up with dimensionals. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Time to chill using Stampin' Up's Snow Place

In just a few short hours, Summer will be over and fall will be moving in. Today's project will help with the change of season and help you just take time to chill. The color scheme is very clean starting with the Whisper White card base that was run through the Decorative Dots embossing folder. The feel of chill is Pool party ink, which was used to match the DSP. The pop of color on the Penguin's beak and feet is Tangelo Twist. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Crafting Saturday

Today was a great day of stamping and creating. My sister-in-law and I got together to come up with a Christmas card for this year and she did a bang up job creating a sample. We each created a card using most of the same products and I think all of them came out great. Take a look at what was created and let us know what you think.

Mary's sample card


First up is Mary's version of what we created today. I love the colors used and the pretty bow above the mantel.



Now take a look at the card I created. I had to use gold and the dies come in handy since I don't care for fussy-cutting.

Stampin' Up- Peaceful Pines: Stepped Up series

I have to apologize for the lateness of this post. Some family matters arose that had to be taken care of but all is well now and the Stepped Up series continues. Today's project is seasonally charged and I think it has just the right amount of color. Take a look below and let me know what you think.

To start off I kept the card simple and I like how this version came out.


But then just add a little ribbon and sparkle and look what you get.

Holiday Home

Saw a similar card on Crafter's Companion UK site and just had to make a version of my own. I didn't put a sentiment as yet because I think it will take away from the design of the card. What do you think?

Stampin' Up Lots of Thanks/ You've Got This

I hope everyone is enjoying a long weekend this Labor Day. I have been having some stamping fun and I thought I would share one of the projects I have created. The card today is for a very dear friend (really more like family), who is always there for me and my family in times of need. The colors used on this project are Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, a small amount of Cucumber Crush on the stems and the sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Another angle with a matching envelope.

The envelope by itself just adds a little flair to the whole project.

Final look at the project.

Stampin' Up- Reason for the Season

Hello and welcome to another post. Today kicks off my series called "Stepped Up". I make one card in a clean and simple fashion and then I make the same card that's more intricate in detail. This series will be posted on Wednesday but not sure how long it will run. Today I have a Christmas card project using some of the products from the New Holiday catalog that went live yesterday. Take a look at the projects below and let me know what you think.
For the first card I started with stamping the image on a piece of Whisper White card stock using Mossy Meadow ink and then I colored the image using a water brush and the ink colors Cucumber Crush and Real Red. I stamped the sentiment in stamped-off Mossy Meadow ink to the right of the image. Next, I adhered a piece of DSP to the bottom portion of the Whisper White panel and inked the edges in Mossy Meadow. What do you think?

Now take a look at the Stepped Up version.
On this card I heat-embossed the image with VersaMark ink and sprinkled with Gold embossing powder. I still used the water brush to color the image in and I stamped the sentiment the same way I did on the first card, then added some Woven Stitched ribbon to separate the panels. Isn't that fun?

Here are the supplies used on both cards.
