Welcome to the Kre8tors October Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Kreators October Blog Hop, where the theme is “Fall.” Living in San Diego, I don’t get to see a huge number of trees with colorful leaves, so I created a Thanksgiving card with a brilliant display.

Fall Leaves

 

My leaves were made with See A Silhouette Designer Paper and Nature’s Roots Dies. The red, yellow, and orange design in the paper was perfect for the idea in my mind. I used the dies to cut four large leaves, four smaller leaves, and then the coordinating, embossing dies, to create the veins on the leaves. 

 

For the background, I cut  some woodgrain paper from Pressed Petals DSP with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die. Then, I backed it with cardstock, and embossed it with the Subtle Texture Folder, to give it a “real” appearance. The same, woodgrain DSP was used for the branches, which I cut with a Seasonal Layers Die.

After attaching the leaves with Dimensionals, I glued the branches on top. I “gathered them together” with  Burlap Ribbon, tied in the middle with Linen Thread.

TIP: I use Liquid Glue to attach my bows, so they stay in place. I’ve tried Glue Dots, but they always seem to wobble.

 

Since this is a Thanksgiving card, I like the analogy of gathering leaves and gathering people, so this sentiment is just right! “Gather together & give thanks” is from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set, stamped in Soft Suede Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock, and cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die.

Sweet Silhouettes Bridal Card for the Kre8tors Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Kreators Blog Hop, where the theme is “brides and  babies.” I chose to feature Stampin’ Up’s! Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set and Sweet Silhouettes Dies. They combine perfectly to make this card for a bride.

Forever

 

You can’t go wrong with a white card for a bride, so I began with a Thick Whisper White card base. This is topped with more white; a layer that was cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die, and a gorgeous, large branch (or tree) that was cut with a Sweet Silhouettes Die.

 

Next, is the couple under an umbrella from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set. I stamped them in VersaMark on Whisper White Cardstock, sprinkled them with Gold Powder, and set the powder with the Heat Tool. They are cut with a Rectangles Stitched die, and placed on Dimensionals.

This picture shows the shine of the gold, heat embossed, image.

 

For the sentiment, I used “Forever,” also from the Sweet Silhouettes Die Set, cut from Thick Whisper White Cardstock. I gave it an extra layer, so the “f” and “r” hanging over the edge are sturdy.

Three little Epoxy Droplets were added as a final touch for my bridal card. Isn’t it a perfect card for a bridal shower?

 

The Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set and Sweet Silhouette Dies can be purchased in a bundle for a 10% savings. I’ve pictured both options in my Product List.

Thank you for visiting me today, and thank you for shopping at my store!

Color Challenge for Kre8tors August Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Kre8tors August Blog Hop. We have an exciting color challenge for you this month, using at least three of the colors shown in the photo below.

 

I was anxious to give you a sneak peek of the Playful Penguins Stamp Set, and Feels Like Frost Designer Paper, from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.

Penguin Wishes

 

As soon as I saw the beautiful, Feels Like Frost DSP, I noticed the design with shades of Petal Pink and Highland Heather. I thought this would be a perfect winter scene for a penguin. Why not let the DSP do all the work?

 

My focal point is a penguin from the Playful Penguins Stamp Set. I stamped him in Gray Granite Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and used Paper Snips to fussy cut. l also stamped his scarf in Cherry Cobbler Ink on white cardstock, and fussy cut.

The card base is Purple Posy, layered with Cherry Cobbler, matching the sentiment, “Merriest Wishes,” also from the Playful Penguins Stamp Set. I should have used Highland Heather for the card base, because of the challenge, but momentarily forgot what I was doing. Oops!

TIP: I usually fussy cut, leaving a border around the edge, as die cuts do. This is the way I cut the penguin. But, I cut along the lines of his scarf, thinking it would look better, and I like it.

 

The stamp set even has a little smudge, giving the penguin a place to stand. I placed him on Dimensionals, and my simple card was complete.

 

I’m also sharing Playful Penguins, in black and white, for my Paper Players Design Team entry today. Clicking on the card will take you to the details.
