Stampin Up Smitten Mittens

We used this cute stamp set at Kim's Card Class last week and I was eager to post this darling mitten card.

Its made with the Smitten Mittens stamp set and coordinating Many Mittens framelits dies. I was actually torn between two very similar designs, but the deciding factor was the ribbon. I had just enough of the new Quilted Christmas ribbon for all my stamping friends that night.

Here's a photo of the card we made at class:

I love how the real red ink "pops" on the blushing bride cardstock of the mittens. I used the pretty Quilted Christmas designer paper for an accent along the length of the card.

Here's the alternate mitten card with the powder pink ribbon and blushing bride ink.

One is bright and bold and one is soft and subtle. I like them both - I just can't decide which I like better. How about you? Are you more of the bold and bright real red kinda gal or a soft and subtle blushing bride kinda gal?

Here's a close up of the pearl jewels that embellished the cute mittens.

For me its a win/win either way. Pink and green are my favorite colors so I can't go wrong with either one.

I appreciate you stopping by today!

Until the next time....

Stampin Up Painted Harvest, Sunny Sunflower

This is a quick and easy, sunny sunflower card that I made for a swap that I'm in.

I just can't get enough of these pretty 2 step sunflowers! I used traditional colors of daffodil delight, crushed curry, chocolate chip and pear pizzaz.

This stamp set, Painted Harvest also can be "bundled" with the Leaf punch for a 10% discount. This Leaf punch of course can be used for a multitude of other projects as well.

I also used the new Everyday Label punch. The pretty verse fits perfectly on the label.

The dots in the middle of the flower and the words were stamped in early espresso ink to give it a subtle contrast against the chocolate chip center.

A few Pearl Jewels were scattered around the card to add a bit of shimmer and dimension.

Here's the whole bunch of the sunny sunflower cards, ready to be mailed out.

I am a big fan of sunflowers and I love the design of this flower!

Hope you like it as well. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

How To Card Fold with Seasonal Chums

One of the cutest stamp sets in the new Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog is the Seasonal Chums stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Tags framelits.

I used the pumpkin stamp as a single image instead of a tag, which is what the stamp was designed to be. Check the images in the set, below, listed after this post. You will see what I mean.

For this special fold, I cut a 4 1/4" x 11 " piece of wisteria wonder cardstock. Then I cut a 2 3/4" in piece off of the front flap of the card. The basic black square is 1 3/4", the so saffron is 1 1/2" and the lemon lime twist is 1 1/4".

I stamped the pumpkin in basic black archival ink and colored it in with the wink of stella clear brush dipped in the lids of the inkpads. The inks I used were pumpkin pie, tangerine tango and garden green.

Using the wink of stella brush is like using a blender pen, only its shimmery!

Here's an inside view:

I also used the new Quilt Top embossing folder for the background on the lemon lime twist cardstock as well as the new Black Rhinestone Jewels and the Painted Autumn designer series paper. The bats, web and pumpkin were all die cut with the Seasonal Tag framelits of course.

That's another cute pumpkin card and unique, fun fold to add to your idea box!

Thanks for stopping by.

Feeling like Fall- So lets Pick a Pumpkin!

Well, the weather around here has been on the cool side lately and its not even fall yet. Tomorrow will warm up a bit and I'm hoping it stays that way for at least the remainder of September.

I love to just walk outside without a coat, boots and scarf and jump in my car and go. So, I'm not looking forward to the cold. I do, however,  like the crisp air of fall and all the pretty leaves. I also love pumpkins and the warm colors of autumn.

So, today I'll share a card made with the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set. I've used the coordinating Patterned Pumpkins framelits previously, but haven't actually shown a card using the stamps. Well, here it is. Quick and simple. I actually did use the framelits a bit as well.

That pumpkin face is so stinkin' cute. I like that I have the option to add a face or not, with this pumpkin set. A bunch of gourds were stamped in crushed curry for a fun background.

Have you noticed the Glitter Acrylic Shapes in the Stampin' Up catalog? I used one on the knot of the ribbon on this card. They come in several fun shapes, like hearts, stars and flowers as well. Plus they have glitter on them! How fun is that?

I appreciate you stopping by today. I hope you are enjoying a relaxing holiday. Remember to thank a veteran today!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is here! Painted Harvest is now available!

I think this may be the prettiest fall stamp set in the entire Holiday Catalog. Painted Harvest is a sunflower set that also has a coordinating Leaf punch that works beautifully for making any kind of fall greeting card.

There are so many great color combinations that can be used with this set. On a previous post, I used daffodil delight, crushed curry and chocolate chip ink. This time I went with peek a boo peach, pumpkin pie and cajun craze inks. Its kind of a watercolor wash, fade out stamp set. Its not a perfect image and its not suppose to be. Thats what makes it so fun. It doesn't have to be stamped perfectly!

I punched the leaves out with the coordinating Leaf punch that can be bundled with this stamp set at a discount. I used always artichoke and pear pizazz for the leaves.

IMG_9627

I stamped some early espresso dots over the cajun craze center of the flower. I love that these dots are included in the stamp set and it really adds some pretty detail to the flower. The crushed curry ribbon adds the perfect accent to this warm and pretty fall inspired greeting card.
