Stampin Friends August Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop.  This month our theme is Fall, which is my favorite season.  We are each sharing cards and projects that we hope will inspire you to be creative. If you just visited the blog of Anastasia Radloff, did you like seeing her amazing projects?

Let's get right to my projects.  All of the stamped images I used are from Stampin' Up!© and can be found in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!
Thankful for You Card and Pocket Gift Card Holder
Thankful for You Card - I used the Birch background & Perfect Harvest stamp sets. The Seasonal Layers Dies were used to cut out the leaves.  The colors I used are Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Whisper White. A Linen Thread bow is the perfect final touch.  

Pocket Gift Card Holder - I used a Kraft flat bag, folded up the bottom and embossed with the Basketweave Embossing Folder. I made the insert to hold the gift card, I added a few ribbons, die cut leaves, and a saying to finish.

Harvest Hellos Sneak Peek

Did you like the card I showed yesterday from the Harvest Hellos set?  Today I am showing you 2 more samples using that set and the coordinating punch.  
For this card I used Granny Apple Green, Soft Sea Foam, Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White Cardstock.  The Basketweave 3D Embossing Folder was used on the Soft Sea Foam layer.  I stamped the apple with Garden Green Ink onto Granny Apple Green Cardstock and used the Apple Builder Punch.  One punch for the apple, stem and leaf all at once....this is awesome.  I used the Light So Saffron Stampin' Blends to wash across the bottom of the Whisper White. The ribbons are layered under the center panel, I used the Granny Apple Green striped, White Flax and Linen Thread.

For this card I used Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake and Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the Buffalo Check Stamp to create the background on the Crumb Cake layer.  The Subtle 3D Embossing Folder was used on the Soft Suede and Whisper White Layers. I stamped the pumpkin image with Cajun Craze Ink onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock, stamped the stem with Crumb Cake Ink on Crumb Cake cardstock. Both images were punched and used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the images.  I used Linen Thread around the stem for the bow and 3 Glitter Enamel Dots to the left side of the card.

Sneak Peek at Harvest Hellos

Today, I am showing you a sneak peek at Harvest Hellos. I couldn't wait to play with this new set and coordinating punch, that will be coming in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog on Sept. 4th.

I am in love with this set. Here is one of the cards I created.
I used Cherry Cobbler Cardstock as the base, layered with So Saffron, Regals DSP Pack, Garden Green and Whisper White.  Stamped the Apple with Cherry Cobbler Ink, colored it in with the Stampin' Blends Light Cherry Cobbler.  I used the Light So Saffron Stampin' Blends on the Slice of Apple. The saying is stamped in Garden Green Ink, layered onto Garden Green Cardstock and a piece of the new Garden Green Striped Ribbon adds a touch of detail.  I used the Clear Epoxy Droplets in the bottom right corner to balance the design. 

Check back tomorrow for another card created with this set.

The Udderly Fantastic Card uses the Over the Moon & Love What You Do Stamp Sets; Whisper White, Balmy Blue, & Basic Black Cardstock; Black Memento Ink, Balmy Blue Classic Ink and Stampin' Blends to add color. I added a ribbon with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and Solid White Baker's Twine.

Summer Fun Blog Hop with Stampin Friends

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop. This month our theme is Summer!  There are 10 wonderful bloggers hopping.  We are sharing cards and projects with a Summer theme.  If you came from the blog of Steph Jandrow, I am glad you are continuing through the hop. I loved her projects.

Let's get right to my projects:  I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw the NEW Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. The Stamp Set is Ride With Me and the coordinating Dies are Truck Ride. 

I made this card using the extended image technique. You achieve this by stamping the balloons on the outside whisper white layer and then again on the inside layer of the whisper white with the truck image.  I fussy cut a couple balloon images to fill in the spaces. 

The above graphic shows the pieces I stamped and die cut for the truck before assembling.  It takes patience, but once I made a few they became easier to do.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects.  I enjoy sharing my love of paper crafting and inspiring you to be creative.  Make a card or a favor to give to someone special and it will make their day.  Enjoy your summer!
