Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Love of Leaves Card with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a decent weekend in store – if you’re cleaning up after Sally’s visit – I wish you well in those endeavors!  We got some pretty solid rain and wind – but nothing catastrophic where we are.  So…we were lucky.  Didn’t even lose internet! 😳😳😳

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Gathered Plaid Autumn Greetings Card

Happy happy HAWWWMP DAY!!!  I hope you’re all safe – so many of my SU! friends are in harm’s way in one way or another these days – be it from wildfires or the slowest moving tropical storm ever (serious – that one’s moving slower than I do on the treadmill on even my laziest day!)!  2020 can just…go the heck away already! 🙁   Y’all take the best of care.

Now.  Today’s card is so….me.  It’s got plaid.  It’s got leaves.  It’s got a cat!  Yep – I brought the Cat Punch in to play with Gathered Leaves and the Autumn Greetings Bundle – and put the whole shootin’ match on top of some gorgeous Fall Plaid Tidings DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from this week’s TGIF Sketch Challenge – although I flipped it upside down!  Let’s…just pretend I meant to do that, okay? 😉

And – the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge let me let my FALL collage freak LOOSE!  I mean – it was like they made this board FOR ME!!  I went up the middle diagonal AND down the right column!

I started with a piece of the Plaid Tidings DSP that I cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″ then cut at 1 7/8″ on the short side.  I left one piece long and cut the other at about 2″.

I matted the three panels on a Basic Black mat.  In order to make all the borders look “right” I used my Paper Trimmer to take a smidge off the panels.  Yes – “smidge”.  Don’t ask me how much that is! 😉

I used the Gathered Leaves Die set to cut leaves in Bumble Bee, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie.  Before cutting them, I spritzed the card stock with water using my Stampin’ Spritzer.  Note:  Cajun Craze isn’t one of the colors listed for the Plaid Tidings – but… I like how it works with this DSP.  So…use the recommendations but…if there’s a color that appeals to you…use it! 🙂

I pulled out the Autumn Essentials Dies – bundled with the Autumn Greetings stamp set – and cut a few Cinnamon Cider grasses.  I also cut a couple of solid Pumpkin Pie pumpkins and some detailed Cinnamon Cider pumpkins – which I adhered together with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Basic Black cat with the Cat Punch.

For the sentiment, I stamped one from Autumn Greetings in Cinnamon Cider on Very Vanilla.  How gorgeous is that font??  I cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  Note:  Cheat the sentiment to the left side of the die cut when you make your card.

Then I put all the pieces and parts onto the card front to create the collage.  When I had everything how I wanted it – I took two pictures.  One with everything in place and one with the “top” layers off so I could see.

I adhered everything with Liquid Glue – until I got to the very last pumpkin on the sentiment.  THAT one is popped on with a Stampin’ Dimensional!

I added some Pumpkin Pie gems to the sentiment and the card front and the card was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment and some pumpkins from Autumn Greetings in Cinnamon Cider ink on a Very Vanilla panel.  I colored the pumpkins with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Combo and Light Shaded Spruce Blend.  On these I colored the stem with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker – then added the “ground” with the Cinnamon Cider Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Autumn Greetings pumpkin on the front.  This one got a Cinnamon Cider stem – which do you like better??  This one or the Early Espresso stems on the inside?

…and I added more of the Plaid Tidings DSP on the envelope flap.  Note to self:  order more Plaid Tidings DSP SOON!!

Et Voila!  No – really.  This card has so many of my favorite things – I considered a double-loop Linen Thread bow but you know me…I do NOT like to be over-the-top on these things! 😉

The Autumn Essentials Bundle is gorgeous – the sentiment fonts are beautiful and the die cuts amazing!  And that doesn’t even speak to the huge, wunnermus floral image!!

Add the Gathered Leaves and perfectly perfect Plaid Tidings DSP and…winner winner!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Always Grateful

Good morning and happy Monday!  Did you do something fun this weekend?

On Sunday – our team got together via Zoom for our Quarterly Team Meeting!  And – in addition to getting Stampin’ Up! updates AND doing an awesome Prize Patrol…a few of us demo’d some cards for the team to make.  In TTBC (The Time Before COVID) – we’d have met in person and crafted together to make the four cards.  Now-a-days?  Zoom zoom!

We all used the same bundle – the Celebration Tidings bundle – but…boy, were our projects different!  Although… we DID all use Plaid Tidings DSP!  Appears we all LOVE Plaid Tidings DSP and want it to stick around forever!!

The card that I did has an autumn theme – all ready for cool Fall days and the arrival of pumpkins and leaves galore.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

Like most hops, we have a theme each month – and this month’s is “Tag Team”!   Which means – we all created two coordinating projects!

I decided to create a little…table decor!  When we have holiday meals with our friends, we usually do buffet style – with the silverware laying on the counter (on in a Red Solo Cup – TK would be proud!).  I decided I’d contribute something fun to the mix (in addition to the normal two-dozen deviled eggs!).  So…I pulled out a Mini Coffee Carrier and a couple of Mini Coffee Cups.  Plus…the Warm Hugs bundle and some Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see!

Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful Hello for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – Ann’s got a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for us this week!  🙂  I LOVE Tic-Tac-Toe challenges and I know it’ll give YOUR creative mojo a bump, too!  So I hope you’ll come and play along with us!

One of the cool perks for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who hit $1M in career sales is the opportunity to work with SU! designers and create “their” stamp set.  Hmmm… assuming I EVER got there…Australian Shepherd?  Under some Pine Trees?  With a Pony??  Sounds amazing!

I used one of those $1M Sales Achiever sets today – it’s called the Life is Beautiful set.  It’s a bit of a CASE from the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog samples!  I paired it with a Celebration Labels die,  some Poinsettia Place DSP and the lovely Gold Cards and Envelopes.  Take a look-see:

 

And…here’s our Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week – I do hope you’ll come and play along with us!  Let’s see…I went across the top, down the right side, thru the mid….oh.  Huh.  If I’d made my sentiment a Thank You…I’d have had Yahtzee!! 😉

I played along with the Inspire. Create. challenge….

And it also played well with the Global Design Project challenge!

I started with one of the Gold Cards (check these out on page 51 in the mini – they’re gorgeous!) for my card base.  I adhered a panel of wood-grain Poinsettia Place DSP at an angle using Liquid Glue.

Next, I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it as well with Liquid Glue.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the tree trunk image from Life Is Beautiful in Soft Suede ink.  Then I added some of the stylized flowers/leaves in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile, and full strength Mango Melody and Bumble Bee.  For each of the colors, I stamped the image twice without re-inking (that helps to give depth and more colors – without using more colors!).

Then I added the sweet birdhouse in Soft Suede – and cut the image with the third-from-smallest (that’s the middle sized die!) Celebration Labels Dies – making sure the tree “spilled” off the edge.

On another small piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the birdhouse image again in stamped-off-once Terracotta Tile ink and fussy cut just the house.  That little house got popped over the stamped image with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I used Stampin’ Seal Adhesive to add two short lengths of Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.

I stamped the Life is Beautiful sentiment in Terracotta Tile ink on Very Vanilla and cut it with the smallest rectangle Stitched So Sweetly die.  This is popped over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots, popped the die cut onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the Life is Beautiful birdhouse in Soft Suede in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  A few of the flowers/leaves around the birdhouse seemed right, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere it – and a Poinsettia Place DSP mat – at angles on the inside of the card – and the card was done!

The front of the coordinating Gold Envelope got the birdhouse image three times in Soft Suede…

And – I left the already-shimmery-gold envelope flap in its natural state! 😉

Et Voila!  Life Is Beautiful is a gorgeous stamp set – with different “leaves” to use to change up the look/season of your tree!

Lee Ann Greff did a great job, didn’t she??  I hope you like – and will add this one to your stash!

My Fundraiser to Help Iowa – ends TOMORROW!!

On 10 August, the state of Iowa was hit with a derecho storm.  If you have seen any videos of it – it truly looked like a hurricane had hit Iowa.  Uhm – because it totally had – winds in the 100+mph range (that’s Cat 2 territory, folks!)  With no warning to speak of.  To say it was devastating is a bit of an understatement! 🙁

As a result of the storm, at least 43% of the corn and soybeans grown in the state were lost.  Which will be seen in the supermarkets where you and I get our food!  But beyond all that – many in that state are hurting, have lost their homes, schools and businesses and some are still without power (12+ days after the storm and with daytime temps in the 90’s ). Many farm families lost everything and are left with a huge mess to clean up prior to planting next spring.  With so much destruction, they can really use our help!

There’s an organization in Cedar Rapids, IA, called the Iowa Giving Crew, a Cedar Rapids based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that’s helping to get power restored to those still waiting, is feeding those in need, provides 3 meals a day and is helping with the cleanup.  They’ve got a Facebook page that you can see here with photos and details about the help they’re providing.

In an effort to help, I’ve set a goal of donating $500 to the Iowa Giving Crew.

How can you help me help them??

Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Greetings for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

Our challenge today has five colors and we had to pick at least three.  I sorta over-achieved.  Pretty sure I hit all five with my Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP providing the backdrop to the wunnermus Autumn Greetings bundle.  Take a look-see:

And…here’re the colors we had to select from!

I borrowed inspiration from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week, too!

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake paper from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and cut the right side of the panel using one of the two edge dies in the Autumn Essentials Dies (bundled with Autumn Greetings!).

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the big floral image from Autumn Greetings in Early Espresso ink.  Then I cut the middle out with a rectangle Stitched So Sweetly Die.

I matted the full panel on Cajun Craze with Liquid Glue then popped the die cut piece back in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the dies in the Autumn Essentials, I cut some wheat from gold Brushed Metallic and Early Espresso card stocks.  I also cut a couple of small detail pumpkins and one large from Very Vanilla – and the matching solid pumpkins from a piece of Mint Macaron Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP.

I adhered the wheat die cuts to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the detailed pumpkins to the solid ones and added them to the card front as well!

I tied a Linen Thread double-loop bow and adhered it to the pumpkins with a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Very Vanilla, I stamped the Autumn Greetings sentiment in Cajun Craze.  Using the Banners Pick a Punch, I cut banner ends.  Then I adhered the strip to the card front, over the bow, using double-stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it for the card front!

For the inside, I cut a Crumb Cake panel with the Autumn Essentials edge die.  Then I used my Stamparatus to add a second Autumn Greetings sentiment in Cajun Craze.   I finished it off with the leaves and small pumpkin in Early Espresso.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and into my Mint Macaron card base, adhered the card front with Liquid Glue and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more leaves and the pumpkin in Early Espresso on the front…

…and more of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The big and bold Autumn Greetings floral image is gorgeous – even NOT colored!  And the bundled Autumn Essentials includes such wonderful pumpkin-building dies and grasses – on top of cutting out the big floral!  It’s definitely a gotta-have-it bundle!!

And the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is just stunning with its touches of gold foiling!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, 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 our theme is 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 build a pretty Fall wreath using a Gold Hoop Embellishment and the Beautiful Autumn Bundle.  Did you know that the Autumn Punch Pack – part of this pretty bundle – actually punch out images in the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP?!  Yep – it’s true!  So… I did some of that.  Take a look see:

Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Thankful Card

Good morning, y’all! Yes – it’s Hawwmp Day.

But – more importantly – it’s September 11.

Please take some time today to REMEMBER.  We must never ever forget, my friends.  Take a few minutes of silence – particularly at the times the aircraft hit the buildings – 8:46….9:03….9:37…and 10:03.  Think back to where you were – think of the days afterward and the eerie silence of the skies.  Of watching the television in horror and…disbelief.  Of feeling insecure within the borders of our country.

Never.  Forget.

Okay – now.  On to less weighty subjects…

So – my card today is a fun one that uses the baby wipe technique!  I used it to create a Fall-themed Thank You card – or a Thanksgiving card – with the Beauty & Joy stamp set and some Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Come and Gather for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

When I saw the color combo for the challenge – I immediately thought – Come to Gather DSP.  Then I spent a little time hemming and hawing and decisioning.  Like…for about 5 seconds.  WAS this the right choice??  Should I go with the unexpected??  And then I remembered back to my college days – the first answer you believe to be true…usually is.  So…I stuck with my original choice and added some beautiful leaves and sentiments from the Gather Together Bundle.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Feathers, Frost and All Things Thanks!

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawmp Day from Orlando!  Whoo-hoo!!

We had an uneventful trip down yesterday – even if it WAS raining – and got to our condo in good “pretty” time…tip: never get off the freeway.  PAY the toll on the Turnpike.  That’s all I’m saying about that…

Today is CenterStage – which is being held at Epcot!  I’ll head over around lunch time to be a kid-at-heart for a few hours, take in the Wine & Food Festival for a while (and try to walk off the calories – oh heck, who’m I kidding??!  I’m leaving the diet at the condo!!).  I’m excited!!  I love Disney – not gonna lie.  And Epcot is awesome.  Soaring…here I come!!

But – before I head off to see the Mouse, let me show you a fun little (literally!) notecard I made with the Feather & Frost stamp set and the All Things Thanks set.  Take a look-see:
