Stampin’ Up! Petals and Paisleys Speciality DSP Thinking of you

Autumn, Fall and Thanksgiving Cards are so much fun  to create.  I think it’s the colors that represent Fall and Thanksgiving to me.  I love the golds, yellows, oranges,  rusty reds and dulled greens of fading leaves.  This card is no exception!  Delightful Dijon, Very Vanilla and Petals and Paisleys create a beautiful, elegant Thinking of You Card!  Hope you agree.

The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock layered with Delightful Dijon Card Stock.  The two panels are layered Very Vanilla with Petals and Paisleys Speciality Designers Series Paper.  Before adhereing the two panels to the front I added a horizontal ribbon in Delight Dijon, 3/8″ ribbon trio (Holiday catalog).  The panels were then adhered to front using SNAIL Adhesive.

The sentiment is from the Wetlands Stamp Set stamped in Delightful Dijon Ink on Very Vanilla Card Stock.    It was then die cut using the Layering Oval Framelit Dies in a size to fit the sentiment.  Using the next size die the frame was cut in Delightful Dijon.  These layers were adhered together using SNAIL adhesive.  The finished sentiment piece was attached to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The little tail sticking out on the upper left side of the oval was just a small piece of the Delightful Dijon 3/8″ ribbon and attaching a glue dot kind of tucked it under the edge and leaving the tails sticking out.

The inside was finished by using Delightful Dijon Ink using the Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set in two corners on Very Vanilla Card Stock.  This layer was then adhered to the back inside.

Stampin’ Up! Layering Love in Fruit Stand DSP Card

Green is supposed to be soothing, calming and happy.  This card is all of those and more, it’s CUTE! So here is my green entry for October!

Pear Pizzazz Card Stock is the base of this card and front finished by cutting two pieces of coordinating Fruit Stand DSP meeting in the middle of the front.  All layers adhered using SNAIL adhesive.  The seam in the middle is covered with the 5/8″ burlap ribbon .

I really wanted a bow and tried about half a dozen different things to make a bow.  This one was easy in the end.  Several strands ( 4)  of the Burlap Ribbon cut apart and tied into a bow. Easy Huh??

Vintage Leaves Stamp Set I stamped randomly using Versamark Ink.  The impressions were heat embossed using Clear Embossing Powder.  Next I used a sponge to cover all with Early Espresso Ink from the Inkpad.  Quickly working, I polished the card using a paper towel and this is the result.

Stampin’ Up! Petals and Paisleys Specialty DSP Thank You Card

Love these Designer Series Papers that are coordinated.  It’s fun to just lay them out side by side, the hardest part is choosing which ones you really like together.  Here I used the Petals and Paisleys Speciality Designer Series Paper for this novel Mint Macaron Thank you card.

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves and Swirly Scribbles Thanksgiving Card

Fall is the most exciting time of the year to be stamping.  It has finally cooled off, leaves are falling and fall colors are the best ever!  In this card today I used Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon.

The card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock.  I used the Stampin’ Spritzer to ‘spatter’ Cajun Craze Ink Refill on the front.  Keep the card stock more than an arm’s length from the spritzer to get the spattered effect.  After drying stamp the sentiment form Paisleys and Posies on the upper left side of the front in Cajun Craze.

The longish Oak Leaf from the Vintage Leaf stamp set was stamped in Old Olive on the lower right side of the front.  Then using  the long die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets I die cut it in Cajun Craze Card Stock.  The ends were then trimmed to uneven lengths and also two lines were cut free.  Using the two pieces of die cut Cajun Craze I layered them in an eye pleasing way and adhered using small dots of  Multipurpose Glue.

The leaves themselves were stamped in Black Stazon on Very Vanilla Card Stock.  Then using 1/4 of a Stampin’ Sponge (I cut mine up into quarters), I smudged Old Olive, Delightful Dijon on each leaf.  When done to my satisfaction I then die cut them using the Leaflets Framelits dies to match.  After die cutting I then ‘flicked’ a sponge in Cajun Craze on all the edges.  The two leaves were then attached together using a glue dot.  I then tied a bow in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Trio Bundle in the Holiday Catalog.  The leaves were attached by placing Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the largest leaf.

The inside of the card was completed by layering Cajun Craze Card Stock with Very Vanilla Card Stock.  The leaves were stamped in Old Olive and Delightful Dijon in the right hand upper corner from the Vintage Leaves Stamp Set.
