Fall Blog Hop, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! Are you getting ready for back to school? Have your kids already gone back? Well then this hop is going to be right up your alley! Autumn and Fall are the theme to this months hop. If you come along you can almost smell the crisp air, feel the slight chill and maybe grab your favorite sweater and beverage of choice. Hey we can dream right!?!? It’ll be here before long 🍁🍂☕️


Card base: Thick Very Vanilla 4 1/4″ by 11″, score at 5 1/2″

Very Vanilla Scraps: used to stamp flowers, lights, pumpkins, sign, welcome mat

I cut the door portion from the Thick Very Vanilla panel and set the door aside. I then ran the top half with the missing door through the Big Shot using the Brick Wall embossing folder.

I added Cajun Craze ink to the bricks with a Stampin’ Sponge, I then went over it again with the Smoky Slate ink and a Stampin’ Sponge. I really love how it turned out. What about you? What would you change when you make it yours?

I decided to keep the garland even though they’re holly berries because when I colored them in they look very fall-esque.  Of course the sunflowers and pumpkins fit perfectly!

I think  dimensionals give so much life to a card, so I kinda went crazy with them here.

I added all the ink into the flowers etc. using the Blender Pens because they give much better control and hues on smaller pieces in my opinion.

I used Pumpkin Pie & Tangerine Tango inks for the pumpkins, Garden Green for the stems and flowerstems.

I used Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Real Red & Smoky Slate inks for the flowers.

I used Smoky Slate and a touch of Dapper Denim for the door, and Crushed Curry for the handle.

I used Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Garden Green, So Saffron & Cajun Crake inks for the garland.

I used Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Real Red, Soft Sky & Smoky Slate inks for the lights.

The mat is stamped in Archival Black ink onto Crumb Cake card stock.

I hope you have enjoyed this creation as much as I loved creating it!

I’d love to hear your thoughts and see your versions too:)

Embossing Folders, Fall & Autumn, Neutrals Collection, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, Stampin' Up

Replay of Live Periscope, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers, here is a closer look at the card I created Live on Periscope a few days back. It was so fun to use this new Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It gives so much more depth and feeling to your card. It makes you want to touch and feel it, just like a real-life cozy winter sweater. If you haven’t gotten this folder, I hope you’ll give it a second look.

Quick tip: wetting the card stock with the paper spritzer really helps loosen the fibers and give it some give to really make the embossing pop!

Until next time….Stay Crafty!!

Brayering, Embossing Folders, Neutrals Collection, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Stampin' Up

I’m So Sorry/Thinking of You, Stampin’ Up!


Hi stampers! I created this very simple, but meaningful card from the very versitile Woodlands TEIF. It is such a nice embossing folder, and has so many variations that you can do with it. I have seen people brayer the inside, and even stamp images to transfer to the card stock. It’s pretty cool since it gives a hiding behind the trees effect. I would love to do that type of card, if you all would like to see one done. Please leave me a comment here and I will be sure to do a new video for it. These cards are very simple to make and you could make a bunch in different colors , with varied sentiments and give as a really sweet,little pick me up gift. Just add some Whisper White envelopes 😌

They’re standard card size 5 1/2″ by 4 1/4″, with a 5 1/4″ by 4″ embossed layer.
Until next time…Stay Crafty!
