For All Things

CC498I saw the colors for the color challenge on SCS (Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant) this morning and immediate had this idea for a card.  I just LOVE when that happens and when it comes together so quickly!  But then…when it is a clean and simple card, it usually does!

Here’s the details –

  • Very Vanilla – 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 x 6 1/4, stamp greeting using Memento Black, add to card base using dimensionals
  • Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant – cut out squares using second to smallest square framelit
  • Cut out leaf image in each one
  • Round top right corner using the Project Life Corner Rounder
  • Add each square using dimensionals
  • Add some small rhinestones to finish it off.

See how simple that is!

Set(s): For All Things
Paper: Very Vanilla, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Square Framelits, Fun Fall Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!


Fall Fest

FallFestGhostBoy…where DID September go?  DANG…it feels like I just blinked and here it is the end of the month!

I thought I’d share a card we did as a make and take at a workshop earlier this month.  As you all know I just LOVE this little ghost…well, this entire set!

For this card, people had the choice to make either this card with the little ghost on it or they could make it as a fall card with just pumpkins it on it.

  • Old Olive – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Kraft – 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 – run through the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder
  • Basic Black 3/4 x 5 1/2 – punch with Scallop Edge Punch, add behind the Kraft piece then add to card front.
