I think card is truly beautiful. I love the soft colors, selected to coordinate with the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper. I used Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder with our usual Classic Sahara Sand ink. Yes, that means you can emboss with any color! I don’t usually use three stamp sets in one project, but two of them are available free (with a qualifying order) from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.
If you are one of the first six people that buy the Remarkable You stamp set or the Stitched Shapes Framelits (designating me as your demonstrator and before March 31st) I will send you the card stock, envelope, ribbon, Lace Doily, and the embellishment free.
I love the color combination! I admit though that I struggled when designing this one. I thought I knew what I wanted. I wanted to do a border with the pumpkins. I wanted to use Banner Blessings. I grabbed my Taggers to find the shape and sized layer I wanted. I wanted I wanted gold and sparkles. I wanted this color combination.
I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base and it just wasn’t right. Maybe some texture would help, so I used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions embossing folder and it was a lot better. I removed the gold and it still wasn’t right. I tried switching the card base to Elegant Eggplant, and it just made all the difference for this card!
And I did use the pumpkins for a border. It’s hidden inside.
Banner Blessings was available and on sale for half price when I recorded the video. It’s only while supplies last. It’s one of those Secret Stamp Sets. If it’s gone, don’t despair. Use one of the greetings in Basket of Wishes, the thanks from Jar of Love (#141587), Thankful Thoughts (Wood #141519 or Clear #141522) or another set you may already own.
This elegant tag and band will dress up any bottle. You might decorate your party tables. Or perhaps you could add this tag to a gift of wine, olive oil, or wine vinegar, or really anything that comes in a bottle. You can fill a wide mouth bottle with small gifts. It would make a lovely hostess gift. And you can change the colors to match the holiday or event theme.
Bunch of Blossoms is such a lovely stamp set! It is a “2-step” set, but it’s really a 3-step set. The coordinating Blossom Builder punch makes this quick and easy and you can buy them together in a bundle and save! Pile on the petals and make full flowers or use just three petals for a side view. You can make nine of these cards with one 12″ x 12″ sheet of the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper. Love it!
We all get inspiration from things we see. There are just a few projects I've shown that are CASEd (Copied and Shared Everything). Most of my cards come from a technique I've seen many places and I've made it my own in some way.
I post photos and directions so you can get inspiration. It's OK to copy them for personal use, but hopefully you will make it your own in some way. If you copy my ideas exactly, please give me credit for it. Do not sell any of my directions or organizing tools.
