Painted Harvest

I am SOOOO glad that it is FRIDAY!  Oh my word what a crazy last couple of days!

I’ve been wanted to do a little stamping…I LOVE making fall cards.  LEAVES…it’s ALL about LEAVES!  LOL!!

Anyway I haven’t done any challenges in a while and thought I’d put a couple together.  This is for the Free For on Splitcoast Stampers and for the CASology 269 challenge for GRID.  I think this is a happy and easy FALL card!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, add the ‘grid’ using the Pattern Party stencil and embossing paste.  Let dry and layer on Cajun Craze – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp greeting using Night of Navy
  • Fold piece of Burlap ribbon, staple in the middle and add to card front
  • Cajun Craze and Night of Navy – cut out solid leaf and add to card front – one behind ribbon and one on top using dimensionals
  • Copper Foil – cut out detailed leaf and add to card front to finish off.

Yep…a HAPPY FALL card!

Tags and Trimmings

Happy Thursday one and all!  I have to say…if there is one set/bundle that I think is the most versatile for Christmas from the Holiday Mini it would have to be Tags and Trimmings and the Trim Your Stocking Thinlit.  I used it for my September project for Create with Connie and Mary and then AGAIN for October and these projects couldn’t be more different!

I just LOVE the holly in the set!  It is just so bold and I LOVE that!

Here’s the details…

  • Cherry Cobbler – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5
  • Be Merry dsp (diagonal stripe) – 5/8 x 3 3/4, add to panel
  • Stamp greeting using Memento Black
  • Layer onto Garden Green – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front
  • Stamp holly using Garden Green and buttons in Cherry Cobbler, cut out, add to card front
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

Painted Harvest

I just really can’t believe it is October already.  One of the really crazy things is that for the next two weeks I don’t think I could be any busier at work.  I am finishing up my second course development and starting on my third one.  This one has to be done ASAP as it is going in test mode soon.  We are getting ready for the open house of our new Health Sciences building at school and I am doing a presentation next Friday…EEK…better get going on that one!  LOL!!!  But anyway there is always time to get a little stamping in there!

Here is a super simple card we did last month at my card class.  I just LOVE fall colors!  Here’s the details…

  • Crushed Curry – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8, stamp flower using So Saffron and Crushed Curry, leaves using Pear Pizzazz, flower center in Crumb Cake and greeting in Early Espresso; layer onto Early Espresso – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
  • Tie piece of Old Olive Chevron Ribbon around panel then add to card front.

Yep…easy peasy lemon squeezy!  Did you know it’s that time again?  Our Create with Connie and Mary OCTOBER 2017 MINI SESSION is coming on the 11th!
