This month, I am featuring the Autumn Goodness stamp and die bundle from the August-December Mini Catalog.  It has everything fall, with amazing dies.

 

 

Autumn goodness bundle

 

 

On today's project, I used the dies to pull in all kinds of texture, plus added some accents with Shimmery Crystal Effects and Wink of Stella from the Annual Catalog.  I love how the Shimmery Crystal Effects makes the pumpkins look 3-D.

 

 

The Autumn Wheelbarrow dies offer texture and beautiful accents!

 

The new Foam Adhesive Sheets die cut so nicely.  I die cut the fence after applying Foam Adhesive Sheet to cardstock to make it look 3-D.

 

 

This project is about dimension and texture, using the Autumn Wheelbarrow dies, and Shimmery Crystal Effects

 

 

To Create the Card:

  • cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Cajun Craze card base, score at 4 1/4"
  • cut a 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" piece of Garden Green cardstock
  • cut a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, emboss with the Subtle Embossing Folder

Adhere vanilla to Garden Green.  Tie with ribbon, then adhere to card base with dimensional.  Apply foam adhesive to Early Espresso Cardstock, then die cut a fence.  Apply to card front.  Die cut the wheelbarrow using Early Espresso and Real Red cardstock and the hay using Crushed Curry cardstock after stamping in Crumb Cake ink.  Stamp pumpkin portion of stamp, then fussy cut.  Color stems.  Cover with Shimmery Crystal Effects. Once dry, add pumpkins into wheelbarrow and to card front.  Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock in Garden Green ink and apply to card front.

The Magic in this Night product suite from the August -December mini catalog is so so pretty.  The designer paper has a spooky elegance, and it pairs perfectly with the stylish Hallows Night Magic stamp and die bundle.  Add in some black glitter paper, iridescent pearls, and metallic mesh ribbon, and it is a total win!

 

 

 

MAGIC IN THIS NIGHT SUITE COLLECTION

Today's project uses every product in the suite.  It was fun to make, and came together nicely.  I love the texture from the Cobwebs embossing folder, and the metallic mesh ribbon is so cool, it looks like spider webs on this card!

3D tutorial bundle Sneak Peek August 2020 Nothing's Better Than

 

 

I chose to make some quick & simple cards this month, featuring our new 2020-2022 In Colors.

 

 


Nothing's Better Than 3D Tutorial Bundle Tasteful Labels Stampin' Up! Mel's Inky Fingers 2020-2022 In Colors

 

I paired the Nothing's Better Than bundle with the Tasteful Labels dies.  These labels have been getting a ton of use since their debut in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  They are the perfect size for creating the cute sentiments which can be built using this stamp and die bundle.

 

The Nothing's Better Than bundle has so many choices to pair together, and can even be mixed and matched with the dies, for the best custom sentiments!

Color Fusers Blog Hop July 2020

Color Fusers July 2020 using the Beautiful World bundle.

 

 

Thank you for joining us today for another Color Fusers Blog Hop.  Each month we bring a color challenge to you by creating a card using the same colors.  Visit the whole team to see some awesome projects in a fun color combination.

 

 

Color Fusers July Color Challenge:  Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Pacific Point

 

This month I chose to create using he World of Beauty stamp set and coordinating World Map dies.  What a fun set!  Since the color combination creates an unexpected look for the theme of these stamps and dies, I pulled in extra fun with polka dots and bows.

 

I created the background by sponging ink onto a polka dot Basic Patterns Decorative Masks.

 

 

Add interest by using masks to create detailed background layers.

 

 

The sentiment was cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels die set.  I have used this set on so many of my projects lately, and it has fallen into the 'must have' category.  It has quickly become my favorite label set of all time for good reason!  With so many different shapes and sizes, it works for just about every single project.  Plus, there is beautiful stitching and decorative edges on each die, adding just the right amount of detail.

 

 

The Tasteful Labels dies are perfect for just about every project!

 

And it was fun creating detail to the continents with Shimmery Crystal Effects.

 

 

Shimmery Crystal Effects creates fun accents!

 

The World Map die set has a cool embossing die included.  Look at the detail on the banner layered under the sentiment.  Isn't that cool?

 

 

The World Map dies in the Beautiful World Bundle have some really neat specialty dies!

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a 4 1/4" x 11" Shimmery White cardstock base, scored at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" background layer in Coastal Cabana
  • Cut a 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" Shimmery White cardstock front layer
  • Cut a 1" x 3 1/2" strip of Coastal Cabana for an accent piece
  • Cut a 1/2" x 2 3/4" strip of Pacific Point for an accent piece

Sponge polka dots onto shimmery white layer in Calypso Coral ink, using a Basic Patterns mask.  Adhere to Coastal Cabana layer then to card front with dimensionals.  Stamp globe in Coastal Cabana ink and the sentiment and globe stand in Pacific Point ink, all on Shimmery White cardstock.  Die cut.  Emboss the strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the calligraphy die from the World Map die set.  Layer the Pacific Point and Coastal Cabana strips, and adhere behind sentiment.  Adhere this to card front with dimensionals.  Adhere globe and globe stand to card front using dimensionals.  Color Basic Pearls with Blends marker, and embellish card as desired.  Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to continents or other areas of the card as desired.  Color white ribbon in Light Calypso Coral Blends marker, tie a bow, and adhere to card front.
