Fond of Autumn!

I just received a new order with some Fall and Christmas items from the current July-December Mini catalog and couldn’t wait to ink up the “Fond of Autumn” bundle! I am loving that this stamp set has several line images to color and several “greeting” choices. Wow, the “dies” for this bundle are absolutely SPECTACULAR! One “die” cuts the entire cluster of leaves and flowers and a second “die” cuts the large cluster into (5) five separate images. How FABULOUS is that! There is an additional “die” that cuts out an intricate “peekaboo” cluster of leaves and flowers. You can see a featured sample in Soft Succulent of this “die” on page 52 of the Mini Catalog.

I started with a stitched “die cut” square of DSP from the “Stylish Shapes” dies that had been laying on my desk from a previous project. This particular DSP pattern came from the “Tea Boutique” DSP. For this card, I used Crushed Curry and Basic White cardstock. I stamped the large cluster of flowers and two of the small individual flowers in “Memento Black” ink. I colored the images with “Stampin’ Blends” and then die cut them apart.

The “Thank you” was stamped in black on a smaller stitched square from the “Stylish Shapes” dies. I placed the larger floral image on dimensionals and tucked the two smaller flowers underneath. Embossing the larger white panel with the NEW “Leaf Fall” Embossing Folder gave some “texture” to this card. I added a double bow of “Linen Thread” with a folded glue dot to the flower cluster. To finish the card, I added “Wink of Stella Glitter Brush” to the flower centers for some soft shimmer.

Sending Smiles, Take 4!

This is a super SIMPLE card using the “Sending Smiles” bundle. The main focal point was stamped on a “Stitched Rectangle” die and layered on to one of the larger “Deckled Rectangles” dies. After stamping the flowers, they were die cut and placed on dimensionals. I did add a touch of “Wink of Stella Glitter Brush” to the flower centers to give them a touch of sparkle. This bundle offers several greeting choices which makes this a great all occasion stamp set. I used three of the new “In Colors”, Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party and Orchid Oasis. All of the 2022-2024 “In Colors” are very vibrant and go so well together! To complete this simple card, I used a few of the “Brushed Brass Butterflies” for embellishment.

Sweet Songbirds Bundle!

I absolutely love the NEW “Sweet Songbirds” bundle! This card also incorporates a piece of the NEW “In Color” DSP and the “Picture This” dies. I was able to use three of the NEW “In Colors”, Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide. The NEW “In Colors” are vibrant and happy, I just love them! The “Picture This” die creates three “stitched windows” in your “layer” which allows you to add images or words to those areas. There is a basic white layer sandwiched between the DSP and the folded card base. Both of the birds wings are up on dimensionals. This card was SUPER easy to create and is absolutely darling!
