Merry Everything

CCMC330This is just THE BEST color combo for a Fall/Autumn card and it is the color challenge for Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge this week.

The colors are Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist and Blackberry Bliss and yes, you have seen me use these colors before!  I do really LOVE them.

I wanted to do a simple card that just really showed off the colors and here is my very simple card!

Here’s the details –

  • Tangelo Twist – 3 1/2 x 11 folded, stamp the little leaf from Fall Fest using Tangelo Twist
  • Hello Honey grid print (Moonlight dsp Paper Stack) – 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 – the long end is 2 1/2 and the short end is 1 3/4.  Add to card front.
  • Add three strips of Blackberry Bliss 4 3/4 x 1/4.  Once they are on the card, cut down so finished card size is 4 1/4.
  • Stamp greeting using Tangelo Twist and Blackberry Bliss on Very Vanilla, punch out using Note Tag Punch, staple piece of Hello Honey Stitched Satin ribbon to top and add tag using dimensionals.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

And don’t forget to head over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out what the design team did with this delightful challenge!

Fall Fest

CAS292I haven’t had a chance to join the Clean and Simple Challenge on SCS for quite awhile.

This week it is a cool ‘State Fair’ photo…things that you would find at the State Fair!  So I thought PUMPKINS!!!

A number of years ago my dad decided to grow some pumpkins and wanted to grow some of those HUGE ones!  So he started to grow them…and grow them…and grow them!!!  Although he didn’t have any ‘award winning’ pumpkins but he did end up growing some between 800 and 900 pounds!  They were really something.

But…here’s my little CAS card and here are the details –

  • Very Vanilla – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp greeting using Old Olive and the swish in Early Espresso
  • Add the Linen Thread using a Glue Dot
  • Stamp pumpkin using Tangelo Twist and Old Olive, cut out and add to card front using dimensionals.  Stamp leaf using Old Olive, cut out and add to finish it off.
Set(s): Fall Fest, For All Things, Work of Art
Paper: Very Vanilla

Other: Linen Thread, Glue Dots, Dimensionals

Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Tour de Freaks – Sept

freakwelcome2013

Welcome to the September Tour de Freaks where the theme is “BOO to You” and I took that quite literally!  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Margaret Raburn’s Fun Stampin’ with Margaret blog.  What FUN and FABULOUS projects!

And now for mine…

BOO CardsFor my first BOO…I just HAD to use this little ghost.  It really is the CUTEST thing EVER and it is especially cute when done in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  To make the BOO on the banner I used the little letters to cut it our of the black and add a strip of the Motely Monster dsp Crushed Curry behind it using dimensionals.  The eyes are done with the 1/8″ hole punch and put a Basic Black circle behind it.  Otherwise I ran a piece of Pumpkin Pie through the Lucky Stars embossing folder.  Don’t you just LOVE that candy cone dsp?  Me too!

BOO Box 2

BOO BoxSo…I did this cute 3D using three Tiny Boxes from the Holiday Mini.  I wrapped some of the Candy Corn dsp around it to hold them all today.  I added Basic Black and the Candy Corn dsp to the tops and stamp the faces from Fall Fest, black embossed on Pumpkin Pie then punched out using 1 1/4 circle punch.  The ghosts are again made from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  The pumpkins were stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Tangelo Twist, Tangerine Tango and Early Espresso for the stems.  The leaves are Old Olive.  For ‘boo’ I stamped the Larger Than Life Alphabet in Versamark and Black Embossed and cut out.  I just layered all this on to the wrap around the boxes for easy removal.

I hope you liked my BOO to you and now it time to head on over to Melissa Davies Rubberfunatics for more Frightfully Fun ideas!
