A Fall Challenge

Good morning! Today is another Stamp Off challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me.  This time we needed to make a Fall or Thanksgiving card.

I decided to use the stamp set called Colorful Seasons.  This is a great stamp set because it covers all the seasons.  There are snowflakes for winter, flowers for summer and spring and the cutest Adirondack chair to watch all the seasons go by.

To make this card I first stamped all the leaves in Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Rich Razzleberry.  The sentiment is from Labels To Love.  I used my amazing Stamparatus to stamp the different colors.  First I covered with sentiment with medical tape and inked the leaves in Shaded Spruce.  Then leaving the stamp in the exact same place, I covered the leaves and inked the sentiment in Cajun Craze.  The Stamparatus lets you line up the stamp multiple times.  I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Then I mounted it with Dimensionals onto a piece of Crushed Curry and then Cajun Craze card stock that was cut out using the Layering Circles Dies. I decided it needed something more so I cut out a leaf using the Seasonal Layers die in Rich Razzleberry.

Now let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made with the Fall/Thanksgiving theme.

Patterned Pumpkins

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving so I thought it was appropriate to post a thank you card.  I am so thankful for so much in my life and consider myself very lucky.  I have an awesome husband, brilliant, kind and handsome children, fantastic daughter in law and daughter in law to be and the cutest most adorable grandchildren you could wish for.  I am so fortunate to have my 92 year old mother still going strong and two beautiful sisters that truly care for me and each other.  I have an awesome set of friends who are there for me whenever.  Last but not least, I am so thankful for Emma who keeps me company and keeps all my secrets safe.  Life in very good and I am so grateful.

I made this card using the stamp set Labels To Love.  The leaves (or flowers) are from a set of Thinlits that are in the 2017 Holiday Catalog called Patterned Pumpkins.  The Designer Series Paper is called Delightful Daisy.

Now, go tell your family and friends how much you appreciate and are grateful for them.

Painted Harvest

This is the second card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting.  This card uses a few new products that are in the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  Do you have a copy of this catalog yet?  If not you can pick one up for free from me!

The first set we used is called Painted Harvest.  This set has a matching punch called Leaf Punch and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  I didn’t use the leaf punch for this card but you definitely should get it.  There have been so many times I wish we had a leaf punch and now we do!

The second new stamp set we used is called Labels to Love.  This set also matches a brand new punch called Everyday Label Punch.  Although this punch matches the stamp set there is no Bundle for it BUT the Everyday Label Punch matches a different stamp set in the catalog called Merry Little Labels.  If you buy those in a Bundle you can save 10%. I think it is great that there are two stamp sets to match one punch.  It makes the punch that much more versatile!
