When new designer series paper arrives at my doorstep, the first thing I do is open it and look at every.single.sheet!  It is always much more beautiful in person, and once I see it, and feel it, ideas start poppin' in my head.

Does this sound like it's for you?

Sneak Peak: 2017 Holiday Catalog Painted Harvest Stamp set and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper with Embossing Paste

Hi Friends--

 

Loving the Holiday catalog!  I have started crafting with new catalog products, and thought I would share a little peak of what you have to look forward to!  This card is loaded with new products!  Can you pick them out?

Painted Harvest stamp set, Leaf Punch, Painted Autumn designer series paper, Everyday Label Punch, Pick a Pumpkin stamp set, all from the 2017 Holiday Catalog!

This product suite, Painted Autumn, is one of my favorites in the entire catalog!  When fall comes, working with fall colors become my favorites!  The Painted Autumn designer series paper is gorgeous!  Hand painted fall patterns with beautiful watercolor patterns on the B sides.  It will be hard to pick which side to use!  Want to see it for yourself?  You may still pre-order a paper share from me, and it includes 1/4 of a pack to create with!

 

For this card, I layered on the details, and for extra interest, added some of the awesome new Embossing Paste from the annual catalog.  This is so fun, and really easy to use!  It dries fast, and is flexible.  It can be colored, too!

 

Painted Autumn Suite with Embossing Paste, applied with Pattern Party Masks

To recreate this card, cut a card base of Cajun Craze cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at  4 1/4".  Cut a piece of Early Espresso cardstock 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".  Choose your favorite pattern of Painted Autumn dsp, and cut to 3 3/4" x 5".  Using the Embossing Paste, and Pattern Party Decorative Masks, add a layer of embossing paste to the dsp.  Allow to dry, than adhere to the Early Espresso layer.  Adhere this layer to your card front using dimensionals.  Using the Painted Harvest stamp set, stamp 2 sets of leaves with Lemon Lime Twist ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. Punch out with the Leaf punch.  Stamp sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  With the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set, stamp a pumpkin of your choice in Pumpkin Pie ink over the sentiment.  Punch out with the Everyday Label punch.  Punch a second label from Early Espresso cardstock.  Cut the espresso label in half length-wise, and adhere behind sentiment label to create a layered look.  Layer leaves and trim of choice to back of sentiment, and adhere to your card front with dimensionals.  I chose the 1/4" Copper Trim from the annual catalog on my card, but linen thread, burlap ribbon or copper thread would work well, too.  To finish off your card, use Early Espresso ink again, and stamp a sentiment on the inside of your card.

 

I thought the colors in this card were beautiful together, and were taken from the dsp:

Creating with the Delightful Daisy Suite of Products from Stampin' Up!

Welcome back!  My last post featured a card using the Delightful Daisy designer series paper.  Today I wanted to share the rest of the Delightful Daisy suite with you, with this card.

Delightful Daisy suite includes the Daisy Delight stamp set and punch bundle, Delightful Daisy designer series paper, and coordinating ribbon

Creating with a suite of products makes crafting easier.  All the products coordinate perfectly, which makes putting a project together seamless.  Suites often contain stamps with a matching punch or die set, designer series paper, trims, and sometimes, embellishments.  This particular suite, Delightful Daisy, contains the Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating Daisy punch, Delightful Daisy designer series paper with matching cardstock, and ribbon.  The best part about the coordinating stamp set and punch, is a discount when purchased together as a bundle, not only making crafting easy, but saving money as well!  

 

Quick Tip:  When planning projects, consider purchasing a coordinating suite of products.  This helps save money while making crafting fast and easy!

 

The color palate for this suite, which was also used on this card, includes:

 

To recreate this card, cut a card base of Wisteria Wonder cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Than choose the designer series paper pattern (dsp) of your choice, and cut to 2 7/8" x 4 1/4".  I chose to layer Calypso Coral cardstock under my dsp, which was cut to 3" x 4 1/4".  Adhere the dsp onto the Calypso Coral cardstock layer.  Tie a piece of Delightful Daisy double-stitched ribbon around the dsp layer, and adhere to cardbase.  Stamp the sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set above the dsp layer in Wisteria Wonder ink.  Than stamp 3 large daisies in the same ink, and punch with the Daisy punch.  Stamp centers on each flower with Daffodil Delight ink.  Adhere daisies to card front.  I chose to use dimensionals on 2 of the daisies to add depth to my card.  Trim parts of any daisy extending past your card edge.  Color the daisy centers with Wink of Stella to finish the card off with a little shimmer.

 

When you shop for card making supplies, do you purchase suites?  Stampin' Up! has 15 product suites in the current Annual catalog.  Need a catalog?  Contact me using the Contact Me link in my sidebar.  I will be  happy to send a catalog to you.  In the meantime, click on any of the products below to go to my store and build your suite of products.

Hello There with Delightful Daisy

Welcome back!

 

Delightful Daisy DSP with Pieces & Patterns stamp set

 

Today I am featuring a card using the very popular designer series paper pack, Delightful Daisy.  It coordinates with the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch, however, today I have paired it with the adorable stamp set, Pieces & Patterns, which has this fun circle sentiment stamp.  

Next time you you need a quick card, this is a good one to choose!  I love when I find a great stand-alone dsp.  One that carries a card.  It makes it so easy to create something beautiful, which needs minimal fuss to look great!  And although I am not a big flower crafter, this dsp is beautiful!

 

The colors for this card are simple:

 

 

To recreate this project, cut an Old Olive card base of  4 1/4" x 11", and score at 5 1/2".  Than cut a piece of dsp to 3 3/4" x 5", and adhere to the card front.  Stamp the sentiment in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White cardstock, and punch out with the 1 3/4" circle punch.  Punch out one piece of Old Olive cardstock using the new Starburst punch, and adhere to the card front.  This is one of my new favorite punches, and is a must-have!  Fold a small piece of Double-Stitched Daffodil Delight ribbon in half, and adhere to the back of the sentiment circle, than adhere on top of the starburst using dimensionals.  To finish it nicely, scatter a few Glitter Enamel Dots across the front, and it's done!

 

Hope you enjoyed this card!  To make one of your own, pick up the supplies in my store by using the Shop Now tab in the sidebar, or by clicking on any of the items listed below.
