Count Your Blessings with Colored Veneer Embellishments

Count My Blessings stamp set and colored Touches of Nature Elements veneer embellishments

 

I love this sentiment.  It's from the Count My Blessings stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog. I will use this a ton this holiday season!

 

This card also uses the Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder, from the Annual Catalog, to create the background, and the Painted Harvest stamp set for the leaves, which are punched out with the new Leaf punch.  I dressed it up a little with gold glimmer paper, and Year of Cheer metallic washi tape!

 

I also added a Touches of Nature Element.  I love veneer embellishments, but I struggle with how plain they sometimes look on a project.

In come my ink pads!

 

Did you know you can color them to coordinate with any project?  

 

Yup!  You sure can!  And it is super easy!

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.

Occasions Catalog Sneak Peak: High Tide

As promised, I am returning today to share more High Tide with you.  This set is from the new Occasions catalog, which will debut on January 4, 2017.  It is so versatile, until you work with it, it can be hard to see the possibilities!  As soon as I saw it, I knew it had to be paired with the Serene Scenery designer series paper stack on page 174 of the Annual catalog.  Look at that pattern, could it be more perfect?

Creating this card is simple.  I started with a piece of designer series paper cut to 3 3/4" x 5".  I stamped the birds in Basic Gray, than added Wild Wasabi and Garden Green tufts of grass around their legs.  I mounted it to a layer of Sahara Sand cardstock cut to 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".  I added some Burlap Ribbon, with a simple knot, to the front, and adhered that all onto a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Island Indigo card base using dimensionals.  The Tin of Cards stamp set on page 86 of the Annual catalog has sentiments in one of my favorite fonts, and I thought this Thank You was perfect!  I stamped it in Island Indigo on a scrap of the same designer series paper as the background, cut to 1 1/2"x2", and again used dimensionals to adhere it under the knot.  Done!

 

The colors are all chosen from the designer series paper, which could easily be changed.
