Stampin Up Snowman Chum

As I mentioned this weekend, I was playing with the Seasonal Chums stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Tags framelits and I have another sweet card to share with you.

This time, its the adorable snowman image. I used some untraditional snowman colors- pink pirouette, melon mambo, pool party, wild wasabi and smoky slate because I wanted to be able to use if for a winter card and not necessarily a Christmas card. However, it would work just as perfectly for Christmas too.

I also used silver glimmer paper and the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the large pink pirouette circle, and the 2 1/4" circle punch for the silver circle.

Ah, this snowman chum is so chubby and cute! The small snowflakes were also cut from the Seasonal Tags framelits set. For the snowflakes, I used dazzling diamonds glimmer paper. It sparkles just like a real snowflake would.

A little bit of fine tip glue was used to give shine to the buttons, nose, eyes, berries and scarf. Its cool how the fine tip glue dries so clear and shiny!

IMG_0018

A few ombre glitter dots were attached to the middle of the small snowflakes. I love how they give the snowflakes color and dimension.

I'm loving this new Soft Slate Gingham Ribbon, its so soft and pretty. I added a little sparkle with a rhinestone gem on the knot of the bow.

The Cable Knit emboss folder has got to be one of my most favorite embossing folders. Its so realistic!

Don't forget the inside! Its says "You're Sweet"- I would have stamped it in pool party, but it was packed away in my class projects and I didn't feel like digging it out. lol

IMG_0029

And you guessed, it... just like the reindeer card from the last post- I used the back of the snowman on the back of the card of course.

IMG_0030

I think these soft colors work really well with this chubby snowman and cute little bunny, don't you?

IMG_0033

The snowman was attached with dimensionals and the snowflakes with our super sticky mini glue dots.

I could stamp with this set all day long... I love the images and I love the framelits. So many cute possibilities!

Stampin Up Colorful Seasons Z Card Fold

I've got another triple Z fold card to share with you today. I posted one last week made with a birthday stamp set, and today I'm using the Colorful Seasons Bundle to make a fall card.

I used the beautiful leaves from the Colorful Seasons stamp set. This stamp set is a two step stamp set- which means the stamps are layered on top of each other in different colors to create shading and dimension.

If you'd like the measurements and a quick tutorial on how to make this fold- refer back to the card from last week - click here

IMG_9938

 A tip when stamping the large leaves- stamp the outline image first and then the solid image. I used pumpkin pie, rich razzleberry and pear pizzaz inks on this card.

IMG_9940

I added some fun embellishments too! Gold faceted gems, enamel shapes and gold metallic shapes.

IMG_9939

 I wanted to give the card the look of tree bark, so I added the Pinewood Plank emboss folder to add some detailed woodgrain dimesion to the top flap of the card. I love how it turned out.

IMG_9942

Its officially fall and I think this card is a perfect greeting for the season.

Happy Fall y'all and thanks for stopping by!

Until the next time...

Pumpkins A Plenty and an Embossing Technique

Well, I mentioned that I love pumpkins, and now you know that I wasn't kidding. Here's a couple more pumpkin cards from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and coordinating Patterned Pumpkins framelit dies.

One card we made at Kim's Card Class last week and the other is a variation of that. Both in similar color and design.

This one is from card class. The designer paper is from the Painted Autumn paper pack.

IMG_9724

Notice the background? Its the Garden Trellis emboss folder. What I did here, was to stamp the pumpkin and the greeting first and then emboss over it. I kind of am in love with this technique.. and the emboss folder.

IMG_9725

This one is a little different - no embossing but a couple more die cuts.

IMG_9726

I've added some wooden, Hearts and Stars Elements to this cheerful pumpkin card. The colors are mostly the same, but I used soft sky as the card base instead of cajun craze.

IMG_9727

I've attached the elements with mini glue dots and multi purpose glue. The greeting on this card is from the Painted Harvest stamp set and the birthday greeting on the card above is from the Special Delivery stamp set. Don't you just love the colors of fall? Me too!

Which one is your favorite?  I can never choose - I love any kind of pumpkin card!

Thanks for stopping in today.

Stampin Up Painted Harvest, Sunny Sunflower

This is a quick and easy, sunny sunflower card that I made for a swap that I'm in.

I just can't get enough of these pretty 2 step sunflowers! I used traditional colors of daffodil delight, crushed curry, chocolate chip and pear pizzaz.

This stamp set, Painted Harvest also can be "bundled" with the Leaf punch for a 10% discount. This Leaf punch of course can be used for a multitude of other projects as well.

IMG_9430

I also used the new Everyday Label punch. The pretty verse fits perfectly on the label.

The dots in the middle of the flower and the words were stamped in early espresso ink to give it a subtle contrast against the chocolate chip center.

IMG_9431

A few Pearl Jewels were scattered around the card to add a bit of shimmer and dimension.

Here's the whole bunch of the sunny sunflower cards, ready to be mailed out.

IMG_9432

I am a big fan of sunflowers and I love the design of this flower!

Hope you like it as well. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Until the next time...

Feeling like Fall- So lets Pick a Pumpkin!

Well, the weather around here has been on the cool side lately and its not even fall yet. Tomorrow will warm up a bit and I'm hoping it stays that way for at least the remainder of September.

I love to just walk outside without a coat, boots and scarf and jump in my car and go. So, I'm not looking forward to the cold. I do, however,  like the crisp air of fall and all the pretty leaves. I also love pumpkins and the warm colors of autumn.

So, today I'll share a card made with the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set. I've used the coordinating Patterned Pumpkins framelits previously, but haven't actually shown a card using the stamps. Well, here it is. Quick and simple. I actually did use the framelits a bit as well.

IMG_9624

That pumpkin face is so stinkin' cute. I like that I have the option to add a face or not, with this pumpkin set. A bunch of gourds were stamped in crushed curry for a fun background.

IMG_9625

Have you noticed the Glitter Acrylic Shapes in the Stampin' Up catalog? I used one on the knot of the ribbon on this card. They come in several fun shapes, like hearts, stars and flowers as well. Plus they have glitter on them! How fun is that?

I appreciate you stopping by today. I hope you are enjoying a relaxing holiday. Remember to thank a veteran today!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is here! Painted Harvest is now available!

I think this may be the prettiest fall stamp set in the entire Holiday Catalog. Painted Harvest is a sunflower set that also has a coordinating Leaf punch that works beautifully for making any kind of fall greeting card.

There are so many great color combinations that can be used with this set. On a previous post, I used daffodil delight, crushed curry and chocolate chip ink. This time I went with peek a boo peach, pumpkin pie and cajun craze inks. Its kind of a watercolor wash, fade out stamp set. Its not a perfect image and its not suppose to be. Thats what makes it so fun. It doesn't have to be stamped perfectly!

IMG_9626

I punched the leaves out with the coordinating Leaf punch that can be bundled with this stamp set at a discount. I used always artichoke and pear pizazz for the leaves.

IMG_9627

I stamped some early espresso dots over the cajun craze center of the flower. I love that these dots are included in the stamp set and it really adds some pretty detail to the flower. The crushed curry ribbon adds the perfect accent to this warm and pretty fall inspired greeting card.
