Wonderfall leaves and Sweater weather go together

September 22nd marks the beginning of fall and no more 100 degree days.  Ahhh so nice!  It’s been a wonderful 84 degrees and with the change of the weather it inspired me to create this card for Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I played with the Sweater Weather DSP featured in the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog.  Such pretty colors – Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla and Whisper White – make this paper perfect for all your fall projects.

I started with a Very Vanilla card base and die cut the leaves with the Autumn Accents Bigz die.  For the leaves I used cardstock and the Sweater Weather DSP.  I sponged the edges with Early Espresso and used the Houndstooth and Wood Grain embossing folders for texture.  For bling and sparkle I colored basic rhinestones with Sharpies and spritzed my card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  It’s hard to photograph and show how sparkly the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Sprintz looks but if you enlarge the photo you should be able to see it.

An Old Fashioned Vintage Christmas Card

This week at Hand Stamped Stamped Sentiments we have a theme challenge.  Create any paper craft project with an old fashion Christmas theme.  Looking through my stash I found some gold heart doilies and since recently I received the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies I was inspired!  Perfect combo!

I used one of my favorite Christmas vintage stamp sets, Bells and Boughs.  I stamped the poinsettia image on Very Vanilla with Versamark and heat embossed it in gold.  I then die cut it using the heart die.  It was so easy!  The image is colored with a blender pen and ink pads and sponged with Soft Suede.  I cut holly leaves in Always Artichoke and Old Olive using the Large Oval punch and 3/4″ circle punch to cut the sides.  I used a stylus to score the leaf veins.

The berries are cut from Red Glimmer paper with the 1/2″ circle punch.  So sparkly!  I love this paper.  I definitely need to get some more for Valentine’s.   The small circles at the corners and on the sentiments were cut with the Owl Builder punch.

I hope you’re inspired to join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
