Cards Thank You

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.

IMG_0031

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

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...

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.

Sneak Peek- Painted Harvest

I'm sharing one of my favorites from the New Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog with you today. Its called "Painted Harvest."

First of all, its a stamp set with sunflowers, so right off the bat, I was in love with it.

Its the perfect fall flower and one of my favorites.

IMG_9322

This card was a make n take at my last team meeting. I received this set on the Thailand trip, so I did'nt have the coordinating Leaf Punch that comes in the bundle. We were given the Everyday Label punch on the trip as well, and I thought it also worked great with this set.

IMG_9323

I love the bright, sunny yellows - daffodil delight and crushed curry. Coupled with the chocolate chip ink, it really pops.

Here's a photo of the coordinating Painted Autumn designer paper- we made these cards on the Thailand trip and I posted it last month, maybe you remember it.

I'm glad you stopped by today.

Stampin Up Coffee Cafe Bundle

So, I was playing around with this set, trying to think of something unique to do with it. I didn't really come up with anything spectacular, but I do think it turned out pretty cute. Maybe when I have more time to experiment, I can do some really fun stuff, like maybe make the lid out of acrylic sheets or something cool like that.

I do really like the colors- soft sky, crumb cake and early espresso. Blue and brown shades always look so complimentary together, don't you think?

IMG_7200

I wasn't sure if I was going to like the new Garden Trellis emboss folder, but I actually love it! I used it twice here. Once forward and once backward. I like the way it looks both ways. I added Wink of Stella to the whipped cream - its so shimmery and shiny.

IMG_7199

IMG_7201

I think I use the Glitter Enamel Dots on just about everything. How can I not? They are so pretty! I added one to the knot on the crumb cake ribbon.

IMG_7202

IMG_7203

Makes me want to make a Starbucks run... it looks so yummy!

I hope you enjoyed my Coffee Cafe card. I can't wait to make more coffee cards with this fun bundle!

Thanks for stopping by.
