Fall | Thinking of You

I love the colors of fall – so I had to make one more fall card before the snow starts flying.

Using a piece of Butter Cream (CS-0006) card stock and the Hello Fall (SS-0450) stamp set I randomly stamped some of the images using Summer Days (IP-0042), Tangerine Fusion (IP-0005) and Green Olive (IP-0072) ink.  Then I adhered a piece of the Fall Fest Prints (PP-0048) to the bottom of the Butter Cream panel.  Adhered a piece of Corrugated Stock (ST-0124) on top of that before adding the Pumpkin Patch Ribbon (AC-0334) on top of that.  This panel was then adhered to a Raspberry Berry (CS-0097) card base.

Fall Thinking of You

 

I used the 2″ (TO-0043) Scallop Punch to punch out a piece of Mirror Gold (CS-0136).  I stamped the Thinking of You (from the Decorative Doily – which was part of a previous Bloom Box Subscription) in Hazelnut Blend (IP-0012) ink onto a piece of Butter Cream cardstock before punching it out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch (TO-0016).  Adhered the Butter Cream to the Mirror Gold and popped it up on the card front using Foam Squares (AC-0085). 

I applied some Gold Silk (IP-0096) and Fashion Gold (AC-0292) to the card to finish it off.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Wishing all of you a safe and wonderful Holiday.

Fall – Happy Birthday |GeoBurst Die

I have several folks in my family with Fall Birthdays.  I love creating with fall colors but wanted to make something that didn’t have fall items (like leaves, etc.).  I wanted to create something very different using the fall color scheme.  So I went to my favorite die on the planet – the GeoBurst Die(DI-0217).  Yes, it is by far on the top of my list of go to dies.  So unique and so many uses for it. 

Fall GeoBurst Birthday 1

I stamped the Happy Birthday, that comes from the Arr Catey (AT-0202) stamp in Hazelnut Ink (IP-0012) onto a piece of Banana Cream (CS-0087) and then layered that onto a piece of Cocoa Powder (CS-0008) cardstock.

Using the GeoBurst Die (DI-0217), I cut out a piece of Cocoa Powder (CS-0008) cardstock.  then using the 1 1/2″ circle punch (TO-0031 and TO-0015) I punched out 14 circles from Summer Days (CS-0033) cardstock.  I adhered the circles to the back of the cut GeoBurst Cocoa Powder piece using Craft Glue (AD-0111) [the circles were adhered to the center each GeoBurst].  I cut off the excess circles with our Grand Pro Shears (TO-0064) [best shears ever, non-stick and self sharpening – and they cut through ribbon like magic].

This panel was then adhered to a Tangerine Fusion (CS-0036) card base.  The Happy Birthday banner was adhered on top of that.  I added some Gold Silk (IP-0096) and Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).  And finished it off with some Rainbow Drops (AC-0178) and Fashion Gold (AD-0292).

I made another card using the same idea but changed the circles to Tangerine Fusion (CS-0036) and made the card base Summer Days (CS-0033).

Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart

I know it is not official Fall yet but how can you resist this card with this wonderful saying.  It can be used for so many things, I have been having fun creating with the Hello Fall Bundle (BD-0299) and thought I would make some Thank You cards to have on hand.  I have found that you can never have too many Thank You cards on hand.  I know I go through a lot of them.  What about you?

I love this saying from the Pumpkin Kisses Stamp Set.

The stamp sets I used were the Hello Fall Bundle (BD-0299).  I have used this stamp set before on a previous post.  It is just so versatile and a great add to your stash.  The saying came from the Pumpkin Kisses stamp set (SS-00526).  I love the sayings in this set and can see me using them on my scrapbook pages too.  The sentiment was stamped in Dark Roast (IP-0050) ink onto Banana Cream (CS-0087) cardstock.  I find I am using the Banana Cream cardstock more and more especially for fall cards.

I embossed the Maple leaf image from the Hello Fall Bundle using our Gold Embossing Powder (IP-0101) on Pomegranate Splash cardstock (CS-0025).  Then cut it out with the coordinating dies using the Amaze Machine (TO-0134).  I love this machine, compact and it gets the job done.  (Plus I love the green!!).

I stamped the background leaf image in Green Olive ink (IP-0072). Gold Silk (IP-0096) and Cranberry Bliss Silk (IP-0094) were added to for extra interest.  Since the Cranberry Bliss Silk is a little thicker than the Gold Silk, it does add texture to your card.  I added some Fashion Gold (AC-0292) elements (they come in Silver as well).  And there are various sizes in the pack.  I am going to have to stock up on these since I know I will be using them on my holiday cards as well.

I love the Fall colors on this card.

I took the Banana Cream panel and attached it to a piece of Dark Roast (CS-0091) cardstock before adhering it to my Pomegrante Splash (CS-0025) card base.

I used the Crease Tool (TO-0040) to shape the Maple Leaf (not sure it shows up in the photo) and then popped it up using Foam Squares (AD-0085) .  Added a bow using Natural Twine (AC-0005) and some Glue Dots (AD-0111).

I also like to decorate my envelopes.  I think it gives a nice touch and who doesn’t like happy mail!!

Fall is in the Air/Thank You

The air is starting to get a little cooler these days and Fall will be here before you know it.  So, I thought I would share an idea for a Fall Thank You card with you.

I used the Hello Fall Stamp Set (SS-0450) (this is a really nice set to have in your stash plus, there are matching dies available) and stamped some of the images in the following inks:  Dark Roast (IP-0050), Green Olive (IP-0072), Pumpkin Break (IP-0057), and Raspberry Berry (IP-0056).  The Thank You sentiment came from the Must Have Sentiments Stamp Set (SS-0501) (this is definitely a stamp set to have in your stash, very versatile).

Fall Thank You
I just love these fall colors!

The cardstock I used was Raspberry Berry (CS-0097), Pumpkin Bread (CS-0098), Hazelnut Blend (CS-0013) and Banana Cream (CS-0087).  The Banana Cream really complimented the other cardstock nicely.

I added some Gold Silk (IP-0096) and Cranberry Bliss Silk (IP-0094).  I love having our silks on hand because sometimes your card just needs an extra little something without being too over powering and they fit the bill.  I use them often and they have lasted me a long time. They really go a long way.

As a final touch, I added a bow using our Natural Twine (AC-0005) and our Glue Dots (AC-0083).

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Fall Crafting!!!
