Thanks A Bunch

This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I created this card with the Market Fresh stamp set and coordinating dsp.  The card is CASED from page 116 of the Stampin’ Up! Catalog and Idea book.  There are so many great project ideas in the catalog.  I always see something new every time I go through it.

I used the watercolor technique to color the image and embossed the card base with the brick embossing folder.  A super cute and easy card to make.

Give Thanks for Thankful Forest Friends

This week we have a color challenge of Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist and Cajun Craze.  Perfect colors for a fall or Halloween card.  I used the stamp sets Thankful Forest Friends and Vintage Leaves which have great images for fall cards.  To die cut the leaves I used the Leaflets Framelits.  I fussy cut the fox and for the greeting I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the image and die cut with the 2-1/2″ circle punch.  The background layer I embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing folder.  The Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist stitched satin ribbons are retired from last year.

Wonderfall Leaves

This week I created a card for Hands Stamped Sentiments color challenge of More Mustard, Old Olive, Early Espresso and Elegant Eggplant.  I used the same technique for the leaves as in my fall easel card.  This card was easy and fast.  The Wonderfall leaves stamp set and die make it super easy to create leaves.  I used the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions folder for the background.  I love the pattern it’s so vintage!  I used the Scallop border punch for the More Mustard layer and I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits Dies for the Elegant Eggplant cut-out border.  For some sparkle, I die cut one of the leaves from the Champagne Glitter paper.  I love this paper.  Just a little goes a long way.  The sentiment is from the Day of Gratitude stamp set and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Sponging and Stencils

For my make and take for my workshop this past Saturday I had my guests make a card with a vintage look with the Mostly Vintage stencil, item #118877 from the new Summer mini catalog.  For $9.95 you get both the positive and negative stencil to create intricate designs for your projects.  And there’s no end to your creativity—use the stencil again and again.

For that extra touch to the front of the card I used Log Cabin Smooch Spritz, item # 119921 – $4.95, to add that extra sparkle.  You should be able to see the sparkle when you enlarge the photo.  This spray is so much fun and easy to use.  To prevent the over-spray from landing on your work space or other projects accidentally you can purchase this nifty Color Catcher, item #121093 – $5.95.  It’s lightweight and portable, so you can pull it out and put it away anytime with complete ease.
