Everything Fall Stampin Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin Friends September Blog Hop.  After being away for the summer, I am happy to be back hopping along with these talented stampers. This month our theme is Fall.  To see all the creative projects from each blogger, you will simply click on the next name from the Blog List (below) to continue through the hop. 

Now I want to show you my projects! I have used the Colorful Seasons Stamp set, Popcorn Box Thinlits and Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies for my cards and favor box.  All items I used are from Stampin' Up! ©

This card features the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set. The colors I used are Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Very Vanilla.

For this card I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and a strip of the Painted Autumn DSP. A few of the leaves are stamped using the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set. The colors are Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Very Vanilla. A piece of burlap ribbon adds a touch under the sentiment layer.

I used the Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies to cut out the favor box and banners.  I think it would make a great little gift for a teacher, or to have on the Thanksgiving table at each place setting.  The box is cut from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock, the leaf image is from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set and is stamped with Cajun Craze ink, The banners are Very Vanilla, Painted Autumn DSP, Cajun Craze and tied with Linen Thread. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects.  To help orient yourself, you are at Barbara's Welch's blog. Simply click Maureen Rauchfuss's name on the list below and you will continue through the hop.

Stampin Friends May Blog Hop Flowers/Sympathy


Welcome to the Stampin Friends May Blog Hop.  This month our theme is Flowers/Sympathy.  I am so happy to be hopping along with these talented stampers.  To see all the creative projects from each blogger, you will simply click on the next name from the Blog List (below) to continue through the hop. 

This month we welcome Lori Schaefer Mueller as our guest hopper.  Be sure to check out her projects.

Now I want to show you my projects! I have combined new and old products to create two Sympathy cards and a Wood Crate full of Tulips.  All items I used are from Stampin' Up! ©
Tranquil Tulips and Heartfelt Sympathy Stamp Sets

I think sympathy cards should be bright and uplifting as well as cheerful.  I used one of my favorite color combinations, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz & Early Espresso.  A NEW hostess set, Tranquil Tulips and a set that is staying around, Heartfelt Sympathy. 



This Tulip Wood Crate was so much fun to create.  A bit of fussy cutting the tulips, used the NEW Wood Crate Framelits Dies and Wood Textures DSP, NEW Copper Trim and some cardstock strips as filler. This will last for much longer than real flowers and bring a smile to someone special.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects.  To help orient yourself, you are at Barbara's Welch's blog. Simply click Kathie Rotti's name on the list below and you will continue through the hop.

Time to Celebrate a Birthday!
Confetti Celebration Birthday Card
   
Big on Birthdays Card

Candy Holder Favors each holds a Ghirardelli chocolate
To create a small favor to give to each guest at your party, you can't go wrong with Ghirardelli Chocolates.  I cut the Party Animal DSP @ 2" x 6", Score along the long side at 2-7/8" & 3-1/8".  Punch both ends of this piece using the Tag Topper Punch.  Place glue dots on the back of the chocolate and place along the score line.  Fold up on both score lines, matching the ends. Wrap ribbon around the favor, thread it through both punched holes and tie a bow.  Stamp a greeting and add to front using a glue dot.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the projects I created.  To help orient yourself, you are at Barbara Welch's Blog.  Simply click Raquelle Clifton's name on the list below and you will continue on the hop.
