Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Pines in the Woodlands

Yesterday, I shared a new tutorial on making custom envelopes and liners using your Envelope Paper, DSP and the SU! Envelope Punch Board (OBTW – this is the last day to get that little gem at 25% off!!).  And, I promised that today I’d be sharing the card that went along with the sample envelope.

I am a little teensy bit hooked on this new Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!  I am finding (and actively seeking!!) opportunities to use it.  (Sept 1 is fast approaching folks and you’ll be able to get these new Holiday Catalog products for yourself.  Start making your lists!!)

And I saw a card on Pinterest where someone had used that TIEF on one of my OTHER favorite new things…the Corrugated Paper.  I knew I had to try it!  Finally, one of my new stamp sets that I had yet to use is the very pretty Peaceful Pines – which coordinates with the Perfect Pine Framelits – and you can get them on 1 Sept in a bundle for 15% savings!.  So – I combined all three of those for this card today.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board for Custom Envelopes and Liners

I gave you guys a link to Mary Fish’s website the other day, so you could see how she makes envelopes and liners with the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board.  For today – I decided I’d show you a tutorial – that’s over on my Tutorial Page – so that you can see it right here.  Especially in light of the fact that the Envelope Punch Board is in the Weekly Deal line-up this week!

The coolest thing about being able to make a custom envelope liner with the Punch Board – is that you can bling-ify your custom-paper envelopes to match or complement your card-making masterpieces.

Add in the cool Envelope Paper – and there’s currently TWO kinds – the 2015-2017 In Color and the Neutrals.  And, starting on 1 Sept, SU! will be bringing Real Red Envelope Paper and Red Foil Sheets – two PERFECT choices for all your holiday card making!

So – head over to the Tutorials page to see how to make this envelope….

Stampin’ Up! Dove of Peace

Okay – here’s the Dove I benched yesterday in favor of my Fall salute.  This card was inspired by one I saw in the new Holiday Catalog.  I thought it was gorgeous, so I did my own riff on it.

Stampin’ Up! Into the Woods, Lighthearted Vintage Leaves….Thanks!

I saw them!  Really!  Leaves turning color.  I’m not delusional.  Our Dogwood Trees are starting to show some color!  That means there’s hope, folks.  The summer sauna WILL end!  And then I’ll be whining about being cold – just you wait and see.  And when I do, please feel free to direct my attention back to these posts where I whined and complained about the heat.  You have my permission to rub my virtual face in it! 🙂

I had a card all ready to go for today’s post, using the beautiful new Dove of Peace stamp that you can get your hot little hands on on 1 Sept.  But then, I made up a card for a CAS(e) This Sketch challenge, and I was so tickled with it that I switched up the batting order.  The Dove will debut on Saturday!

This is the sketch that inspired my design.  Those folks over at CTS are really talented and they give us such fun sketches for inspiration.  This is Sketch #137.  Be sure to go over and check them out, okay?

I went to a few obvious choices for this one.  Well, obvious for me, anyway.  Vintage Leaves.  Lighthearted Leaves.  Into the Woods DSP.  And – more of the wondrous Corrugated Paper!!  Love love LOVE this stuff!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! To You & Yours, Too teams up with Wonderland

Yesterday was a “Fall” day and today is a “Christmas” day.  In card land.  In Atlanta-land, it’s summer.  In the very worst sense of the word.  Hot.  Humid.  Afternoon thundershowers that just up the humidity even more.  We’re considering scuba gear.  To go to the grocery store.  We’re scrubbing mold off the mold.  It’s my very least favorite time of the year.  I think that’s why I ended up with a card that – for me – evokes a crisp winter evening, bright with stars.  The “bright with stars” part makes it pretty obvious it’s NOT in Atlanta.  I know the stars are there….but….

My mom would point out that the Colorado mountains have stars galore.  And she’d be right!

This card uses two Holiday Catalog stamp sets – To You & Yours, Too and Wonderland.  I used a fun, and easy, clear-resist technique.  Take a look-see:
