Patterned Pumpkins

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Hope you are having a fabulous week! Yesterday I shared a sneak peek, on my Facebook page, of all of the pieces I cut to create today’s project. But I didn’t create just one card….I created 15 of them as part of a Thanksgiving Themed Swap with members of my stampin’ team!  I was so excited with how they turned out that I just had to share it with all of you!

The project showcases the die cuts from the Patterned Pumpkin set. I love the fall season so I was attracted to this set as soon as I saw it.  Plus it works well with the sentiment from the Painted Harvest set. To created this card, I started with a piece of thick Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the Hardwood background on the upper part of the card front using Crumb Cake ink. Notice that I left a little spot for the sentiment on the bottom. I recommend stamping your sentiment first so that you know how to stamp the hardwood image. Then, I simply cut out a variety of different fall images from the Patterned Pumpkin die set.  I used some of the fun Foil Frenzy DSP, Gold GLimmer Paper as well as Copper Foil. Then embellished it with a few Touches of Nature wood elements. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Fall-Themed Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Sharing a little Halloween fun with you today! This particular card showcases a great way to use the spooky patterns found in the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack.  It’s a quick and simple card to create! Plus, you can use this layout over and over again with any patterned paper to create cards for any occasion! How cool is that?

To create this card, cut a piece of basic black cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 2 inch piece of the striped pattern from the Halloween Night DSP pack and adhere it to the left side of your card front. Cut a 2 x 4 inch piece of the “bat” pattern from the DSP pack and a 2-1/4 x 4-1/4 inch piece of basic gray cardstock; adhere these two pieces together (the gray cardstock serves as a matte).  Cut a metallic doily in half and adhere one of the halves to the backside of matted “bats” piece; then adhere the entire piece to your card front be overlapping onto the striped DSP pattern. For the finishing touch, add a little halloween sentiment using your circle punches!

Not into Halloween cards? No problem…you can use this layout  and all of the measurements to create a card for any occasion!  Just change out the pattern paper and the sentiments to create a whole new card like this!

Acorny Thank You

Good Morning Stampin’ Friends! Today I have a fun Fall-Themed card to share with all of you. This card was designed for a monthly swap that I participate in with other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fall is my favorite time of year!  Probably because it marks the beginning of the holiday season! I also absolutely love the colors of Fall. I live in Wisconsin so the colors of Fall are just absolutely beautiful!

To make this card, start with a piece of soft suede cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of very vanilla cardstock and stamp it with the Hardwood background stamp; use soft suede ink. Sponge the edges with a bit of soft suede ink. Cut a 1 x 4 inch piece of an orange colored piece of designer series paper (DSP). I actually used a pattern from the Halloween Night Specialty DSP pack. Tuck a piece of the delicate white doily behind the DSP and adhere it to the center of the hardwood. Punch out a 2 inch circle from a piece of cajun craze cardstock and tuck it behind the doily. Cut a 1 x 4 inch piece of early espresso cardstock and tear it in half; adhere one of the halves below the orange DSP. Cut a 5 inch piece of the burlap; adhere it across the DSP, as shown. Wrap the ends of the burlap around to the back of the hardwood cardstock, then secure the entire piece to your card base. Stamp a few acorn pieces using soft suede, early espresso, pumpkin pie and cajun craze; punch out the pieces with the coordinating punch and assemble the acorns. Adhere to the card front as shown. For the finishing touch, add a little sentiment. Enjoy!
