Give Thanks

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos Bundle

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Bundle

Hello Stampers!

November is seen as the month of gratitude, giving thanks for those wonderful things in our lives. I’m thankful for the gift of Stampin’ Up!, being introduced to the craft about twenty-five years ago.

Stampin’ Up!’s Harvest Hellos Bundle has helped me create cards and small treat packaging to celebrate this month. The stamp set and coordinating punch can be used both as an apple and a pumpkin. Here, Dawn Seelhoff has created a card for offering thanks, focusing on the colors of Pretty Peacock and Gray Granite.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have questions about how this card was created. Click on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.

Come to Gather Thank You

Hello Stampers!

I initially purchased three packages of Stampin’ Up!’s 12 x 12 Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. It’s filled with an array of fall themes and images, but I never thought I’d use it all. Well, I did. And, I’m waiting for two additional packages to arrive next week. Today, I wanted to create some thank you cards to send to my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and was forced to create something with just the scraps I had. This is the result.

I CASEd the layout and design from a card I received from Kathryn Collison for World Card Sending Week. In addition to the Come to Gather DSP, I used the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia and the limited-time only Gold Shimmer Ribbon. The colors of the card stock are Merry Merlot and Early Espresso. Just a quick and easy card that’s oh so pretty in person.

Simply Thankful

Stampin' Up! Country Home and Rooted in Nature

Stampin’ Up! Country Home and Rooted in Nature

Hello Stampers!

Last night, I had the opportunity to stamp with an awesome group of teenage girls in Queen Creek, Arizona. Their creativity just blew me away!

I cut the pieces and showed them, step by step, how to create this card with rubber stamps, ink, and paper. But some of the ways they changed the card to make it their own were just amazing. (I should have taken some photos, but we were too wrapped up in crafting.)

The card starts with a Crumb Cake base, on top of which is a piece of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. We stamped the stump image from Rooted in Nature with Soft Suede ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. We then added two leaves punched with the Cherry Cobbler card stock and the Leaf Punch. On top of that, we inserted a small slice of the Come to Gather DSP. And, finally, we stamped the sentiment (perfect for this month of gratitude) in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla card stock.

It was fun stamping with a group of girls who let their creativity flow.

I’m headed back in December to stamp on wooden tree ornaments and create a Gold Foil gift box.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Team Stamp It Blog Hop–Stargazing

Hello Stampers!

Welcome to Team Stamp It’s monthly blog hop. This month, we’re featuring projects using brand-new products from Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog. Thanks for joining us! Be sure to visit each blog on the hop and leave a comment with the hashtag #tampitcontest. You’ll be entered into a drawing to win a Soft Sayings Card Kit.

There are so many fun new goodies, it was difficult to know where to start! But one of my customers nudged me out of my comfort zone. I love Pinterest, and I get a lot of my ideas from there. However, this customer wanted me to use Stampin’ Up!’s Stargazing stamp set. I found a few ideas on Pinterest, but soon realized I was going to have to create a “Kim Quade Original.” Here is the finished product.

Stampin’ Up! Stargazing and Twinkle Builder

The card features a color combination of Night of Navy and Smoky Slate and has hints of bling from Silver Glimmer Paper (punched fro the Twinkle Builder Punch. This card easily lends itself to becoming a shaker card.
