How to Make a Celebrate Autumn Card using Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder & Colorful Season Stamp Set

Welcome stampers! Is summer time fading where you are? It is here in Wisconsin! We've been having some much cooler weather here...which I love! I'm an autumn girl at heart :). The mornings have been a bit crisp, and the evenings have been perfect for snuggling under a light blanket. My favorite time of year is just starting, so I had to make a card to celebrate!




I love how the Celebrations Duo embossing folders can be used with other stamp sets. This leaf stamp from Colorful Seasons is perfect for this fall card! I used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Cherry Cobbler for that perfect pop of autumn color.




For the card front, I used the Crushed Curry Ombre paper from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. I love how it goes from light to dark, and it sure pops against that white layer on top of my Early Espresso card base. Oh! And the Labeler Alphabet stamp...perfect for saying whatever you want on a card. I love it!


I've got a step by step tutorial for you on this card - it was so easy to make! Gather your supplies!

A Simple Wedding Card for Global Design Project 099 | Theme Challenge

I think one of the best things about stamping is being able to create unique cards that are absolutely perfect for the situation and the friend you are sending them to. My friend Emily is getting married this weekend, and I can't make it to the wedding, but that didn't stop me from creating a card perfect for her.


Interestingly, this week's Global Design Project Challenge is a theme challenge, and the theme is wedding or anniversary! What perfect timing! You can read more about the challenge by clicking below.


My friend loves to spend time on her family's cranberry marsh and her new husband's family farm. I wanted to create an elegant, harvest-themed card, and immediately I thought of a wheat bouquet when I picked up my Bouquet Bunch framelits.


I also wanted my card to be simple, but elegant. The new Ruffled 3D embossing folder was the perfect choice to create that look. I chose Very Vanilla as my card base and front and a simple color pallette by bringing in So Saffron with the wheat and "Congratuluations" sentiment. The gold mini sequin trim is the perfect pop of glitz, don't you think?


I added just the perfect pop of a color across the blank space of this card with a few flicks of my Old Olive Stampin' Write marker, and I carried the Old Olive into the inside of the card too.


Isn't that sentiment just perfect for a wedding? That' comes from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, and when you bundle with the framelits, you can save 10%!

If you don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would be so thrilled to earn your business! I love inspiring you with my projects, and all of my customers get an invitation to my private Facebook VIP page where I share exclusive projects with you, we play games, and you can win prizes!

Get a Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek with my entry to Global Design Project 098 #GDP098

It's been awhile since I used banners in my cards! This week's Global Design Project challenge was the perfect reason for me to dust off my Banner Triple Punch and also play with some NEW designer series paper!


This week the Global Design Project challenge is a sketch challenge. You can check out the details by clicking on the GDP sketch below.


Check out all those banners! I knew when I saw them I wanted to use some of my gorgeous new Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. I just got some brand new stamps from the Holiday Catalog, so of course I wanted to use my new stuff right away and give you a sneak peek!


Isn't that paper so pretty? I used the Happy Halloween and Trick or Treat sentiments from the coordinating Spooky Cat stamp set. Your sentiments can be used to make a pretty background by repeated stamping across your layer. I used the "Trick or Treat" sentiment this way in Pumpkin Pie ink over the Pumpkin Pie layer. I also tried a new technique - see those subtle splashes on the card front? I used my aqua painter and clear embossing powder to get that look. Just drop some water form your aqua painter, cover in clear embossing powder, and set with your heat tool.


I hope I've inspired you with this sneak peek of a new set and new DSP from the Holiday catalog! If you don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would be so thrilled to earn your business! I love inspiring you with my projects, and all of my customers get an invitation to my private Facebook VIP page where I share exclusive projects with you, we play games, and you can win prizes!
