Calling All Pumpkins

The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper is fantastic!  You can do so much with it.  Today I'm using the piece filled with pumpkins.  Warning:  There's fussy cutting involved!  Actually the cutting is pretty easy.  Here's my card.

Painted Autumn DSP

The card base is Cajun Craze.  I don't use this color a lot, but it's a must for autumn.  It's cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored and folder at 4 1/4.  The Early Espresso layer is 3 3/4 x 5 and the Very Vanilla layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Run this vanilla layer through the Big Shot with the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  That's a mouth full!

Add a strip of another sheet from the Painted Autumn pack.  It measures 1 1/2 x 4 7/8.

The crate is cut from the Wood Crate Framelits Dies.  Just cut away the extra and use only the front of the crate.  This is cut from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper stack.

Then, just start cutting out the pumpkins.  I cut 2 of the clusters of pumpkins and 2 of the single pumpkins.  The pumpkins in front of the crate go on dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the All Things Thanks stamp set.  Stamp in Early Espresso onto a scrap 1/2 inch wide.  Notch the end and adhere to the card just sticking out the side of the pumpkins.

Painted Autumn DSP inside

The inside has a sentiment from the stamp set Count My Blessings in espresso.  Add one more pumpkin.

Product List

Merry Hot Chocolate

Today's card is a CASE from Cindee Wilkinson.  I believe on her post that she gives credit to Monica Gale.  It's a great card.  I made a few minor changes.

Coffee Cafe Chocolate

Start with a card base of Pool Party cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score at 4 1/4.

The Cherry Cobbler layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  The Whisper White layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.

Add of piece of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack measuring 1 3/4 x 3 5/8 to the bottom of the white layer.

Sponge some Pool Party ink near the top of the center of the white layer to show up behind the cup.  It will make it stand out a little better.

Using the new Decorative Ribbon Border punch cut a 3 5/8" length of Night of Navy card stock to fit across the card.  Layer next to the wood piece.  Add a piece of the Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon.

Cut the mug out of the Be Merry Designer Series paper using the Coffee Cup Framelits.  Cut the handle for the mug from the same paper using the letter C from the Large Letters Framelits.  The snowflake on the mug was cut from Whisper White using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.

The whipped cream is a die cut from the Coffee Cup Framelits in white.  Add some of the Embossing Paste over the cut out and allow to dry.  Sponge with a little of the Crumb Cake ink.

Adhere the mug, handle, and whipped cream with dimensionals.

Finish off the card with a few rhinestones and a gingham ribbon on the handle.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Special Celebrations.

Coffee Cafe Chocolate inside

Here's the inside of the card.  The sentiment is from the Coffee Cafe stamp set.  Since we have hot chocolate, the coffee is covered with the word chocolate.  Make this on a scrap of Whisper White.  Stamp Early Espresso and use the letters from the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.  You will need to trim it to fit.

Coffee Cafe Hot Chocolate

I think there are many people who would appreciate this card.  We all love chocolate!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  If you want to see a card using the Coffee Cafe bundle, I posted one yesterday.  You can see it here.

Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #479

Don't you just love Thursdays!  Today the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge is a color challenge.

CCMC479

We are using Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, and Soft Sky.  I found some of Stampin' Up! lovely designer series paper to help me with my card today.

CCMC #479 (2)

With cooler weather on the way, you might want more coffee cards!  Here are the details.

The card base is Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.

Use a piece of the herringbone blue from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  At the bottom add a piece of the green with the hearts from the same pack.  It measures 1 3/8 x 3 3/4.  Part of this paper is also used to make the sleeve for the cup.  There's a framelit for that in the Coffee Cup Framelits.  The patterned paper for the cup is also from the Coffee Break pack.  The lid is cut from Garden Green card stock.

If you look closely,  you can see that there is a doily under the cup.  It has been colored with Lemon Lime Twist ink and a dauber.  The leaves at the bottom of the cup are stamped from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Garden Green.  Stamp it on patterned paper from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Punch them out with the Leaf Punch.

The heart on the cup is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist onto Whisper White.  Just cut it out.  The stamp is from the Merry Cafe stamp set.

The sentiment is stamped in Soft Sky and then cut apart.  Glue onto the card.

CCMC #479 inside

Here's the inside of the card.  Add a strip of paper from Coffee Break and another leaf.  Complete the sentiment on the inside.  In keeping with the outside, cut the words apart and glue.

CCMC#479

I love these colors together.  I also love using designer series paper to add interest to my card.

Large Letter Thinlits, Vintage Leaves, and Fall

I admit it.  I have coveted the Large Letter Framelits since they came out.  I had learned to live without them, until recently.  Then all of these great samples starting showing up using the eclipse technique.  I fell in love all over again.  Now, I can proudly say that I am the owner of the Large Letter Framelits.  I admit this also.  I'm a little obsessed with Stampin' Up!  With all that said, and admitted, here is my card.

Vintage Leaves and Large Letters

We'll be making this card in our October class.  

The card base is Soft Suede cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

The Peekaboo Peach layer is 3 3/4 x 5 and the Very Vanilla layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.

Stamp the leaves from Vintage Leaves in Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron, and Lemon Lime Twist.

Using the Large Letters Framlits, cut out the word FALL.  You will need to cut the FAL first making sure you leave enough room for the final L.  Don't lose the little inside for the A.  When cutting the final L, make sure that you line it up with the rest of the FAL. Notice where the cut line is on the framelit and use that to help you.

Glue the vanilla layer down to the peach layer.

For the A.  Just put the letter down in its place.  Use that to help you know where to adhere that little inside of the letter.  Glue it in place.

Add the Foam Adhesive Strip to the back of the letters.  Put them in the open places left for them.

I haven't used the Corrugated Elements in the annual catalog so I thought I would use them here.  Add the tag and a bow of the Linen Thread.  The sentiment is from At Home with You and is stamped in Soft Suede and trimmed.  Add with glue dots.

Vintage Leaves inside

Just add some additional leaves for the inside of the card.  The sentiment here is from Colorful Seasons.

Vintage Leaves

I'm so glad I have those letters.  They are expensive.  I'll let you in on a little secret. With an order of $450 you get to buy an item at half price!  That's how I got them! Stampin' Up! has some great perks!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm so glad that you did.  If you need some SU supplies, I'll be glad to help you at my online store.  Click on an item in the Product List and it will take you there!

Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #477 Vintage Leaves

Good morning!  It's Thursday!  This week the challenge is a color one with Fresh Fig, Calypso Coral, and Pear Pizzazz.

CCMC477 (1)

Isn't this perfect for fall.  So of course you get a fall card.

CCMC #477 Vintage Leaves

Usually, when there is a color challenge, I first look at my designer series paper to see if some of it fits the challenge.  It's a starting point for me even if I don't use any. Since there was a piece that fit every color, I decided that was the way to go.  All of the leaves were stamped in Fresh Fig and cut using the Leaflets Framelits.  Of course the stamp set is Vintage Leaves.

The card base is Fresh Fig measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

The Calypso Coral layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.

The next layer is cut from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper measuring 3 3/4 x 5.  

The leaves are cut from papers from Coffee Break, Delightful Daisy, and the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper packs.

Of course the leaves needed a little embellishment.  My favorite stamp set, Painted Harvest, came to the rescue.  Still stamping in Fresh Fig, stamp on Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz with the detailed leaf stamp and punch with the Leaf Punch.  It's a bundle!  I also added some sprigs of Fresh Fig using the Flourish Thinlits.  I just love those sprigs with the little dots.  Some of these pieces were glued and some have dimensionals.  Just make it pleasing for you.

CCMC #477 close up

Add a bow of Fresh Fig Finely Woven Ribbon.

The sentiment is from Painted Harvest.

CCMC #477 inside

The sentiment on the inside is from Rose Wonder.  Add a little more embellishment.

CCMC #477

So if you are from the south, you would say Happy Fall, Y'all!  It's my favorite season of the year!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I do appreciate it.  I would love to be your demonstrator is you don't have one.
