Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop! Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month we’re calling it Fall Frenzy! We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!
I decided to ink up a new set from the 2018 Holiday catalog, called Wishing You Well. It is absolutely gorgeous – and fits our theme perfectly – especially when added to some wood grain paper from the new Country Lane DSP. Take a look-see:
My color scheme is from The Paper Players this week – pretty “Fall-y”, wouldn’t you say? 🙂
I started with the aforementioned paper in wood-grained Early Espresso from the new Country Lane DSP (coming on 5 Sept!) and matted it on Mango Melody card stock for the card front.
For the art piece – I used my Stamparatus (I made four of these beauties!) – and first stamped the Wishing You Well flower bunch in So Saffron on a small panel of Whisper White. Next is the flowers image in Pumpkin Pie.
Finally, I stamped the bow.
The bow!! SO darned gorgeous – you don’t even have to stamp it off. You get that wonderful gauzy/net look with straight-up full-strength Pumpkin Pie ink. Thank you, Stampin’ Up!
I added the little sentiment in Early Espresso and that was it!
I matted the panel on Mango Melody and adhered it to the card-front with Liquid Glue. With my Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend Marker (in the 2018 Holiday Catalog!), I colored some Pearl Basic Jewels and add them to the card front. And…the card front was done!
On the inside, I added the flower bunch, flowers and bow to the bottom of a Whisper White panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mango Melody mat and into my Early Espresso card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a reprise of the Wishing You Well flowers and bow on the front…
…and I put a little more Country Lane DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I LOVE this Wishing You Well stamp set – it would be gorgeous with nothing more than the flowers – but…the BOW! Wow – it just blows me away! I hope you like!

Stamps-N-Lingers 2018 Holiday Catalog Shares Are Open!
What are catalog shares, you ask? They’re your chance to try a little bit of everything and see what you like the best. It’s like…your first trip thru a cruise ship buffet…you have a little taste of all the fun things you like (or have never tasted) and then you go back for seconds (or even thirds!) on the goodies you love!
I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 5 Sept 18 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast! Then I’ll get it all cut up, packaged and out the door quick as I can – hopefully early in the week of 10 Sept.
Shares are open to anyone – including demonstrators, so…check it…
I’ve got a few options for you to pick from: a New Designer Series Paper Share, a New Ribbons/Embellishments Share, and an I Want It All Share (this one gets a free extra bonus!!).
Deadline to sign up for the shares is 3 Sep 18 at 8pm EST!! Head over to my Holiday Catalog Shares Page for all the details on what you get with each share type, as well as a handy form to fill out.
