Pretty Halloween

I have another card that I made for Holly's online class. I can't share what the challenge was, but I can share that she made the prettiest Halloween cards I've seen! So I thought I would try to make a 'pretty' one too for some of the grown ups.

I stamped both background papers, used two retired border punches on them, and layered the punched bird on top. I gave the bird an orange eye by coloring a rhinestone with the Blendabilities alcohol markers.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Fussy Cut Border

The card I'm sharing today is something new that I tried. I stamped a piece of white card stock then glued it to a card front, then fussy cut around the flowers to have the black base show behind it. I think it looks pretty good, and don't know why I haven't tried this before!!

Just a quick post today, as I'm off to work, thanks for having a look!!

Getting Ready For Fall

Hello! Even though I'm not ready for Fall to arrive, my paper crafting is! Today's card is one I made for my Upline Holly's Online Class called, Fall Fest. There is a banner and link on my sidebar if you would like to check it out! There will be six days of projects with videos, downloadable PDF's, and prizes!

I can't share what challenge this card was made from, but I can share that I'm very pleased with it!! Some of the cards and projects I share I'm not real happy with, but I share them anyway. I've used the retired Sweater Weather(love it) designer papers on this, along with current stamps and embellishments. I totally love the little wood leaves that are in the Holiday Catalog, so I've used them here. I'm not good at collage at all, but I like how all the paper layers give that effect here!

Thanks for stopping by today, and don't forget to check out the info for Holly's class! Have a great day!

Happy Labor Day! The card I'm sharing today I cased from two different cards. Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, we get a special demo only magazine each month or so, and there are lots of sample cards showcasing stamp sets and dies. I liked the circle die cut with our framelits, and also the stamping of the new set For All Things. So this my version of the two cards.

I'm hoping to get a video done this week!! I have an extra day off, and I'll be all alone!! :)
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!

For All Things Stamp Set-Holiday Catalog

Today the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is now available to view and purchase!! My card for today is a bit off beat than what I normally make. For one, it's a 5x7 size. I do like a larger card, but I rarely do it. I suppose because it takes a whole sheet of cardstock. But that shouldn't stop me, like I said, I do like a larger one!! :)

This card is also a bit more fussy than usual. I've used some new Designer Series Paper called Color Me Autumn, and I also stamped the large panel with stamps from the For All Things set. But, I tried to add some solid colors in to break it up a bit. A die cut leaf, Blackberry Bliss ribbon, and the fun new wooden elements in leaves and acorn shapes. The gold buttons are also an addition to the new catalog.

I had to add in some twine, it's my favorite embellishment! I also glued on some gold sequins from the sequin trim that my generous upline Holly sent me!!

So that's my first project share from our new catalog! To see the rest of the catalog, click on the link at my sidebar. Thank you for stopping by!
