PP215 Encore, Fall Fest


Hi my friends, and Happy Monday! I don't want to confuse you with what day of the week it is, but I have another card for this week's Paper Players challenge. Both are clean and simple, yesterday's was in portrait version, and as promised here is the landscape version, using the Fall Fest Stamp Set. 


Here's the sketch, compliments of me :)



I love these little leaves, and the photopolymer stamps ink up so beautifully onto the new firm foam stamp pads. Little by little, I am replacing them all. That little clover-like looking leaf was the one that went MIA on me for a while. I squealed when I found it! Yes,my family thinks I'm a bit nuts! 


Stampin' Up Products used:
Stamp Sets: Fall Fest, Good Greetings
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey
Ink Pads: Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey
Tools: 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Square Punches

Have a wonderful day, and Happy Stamping!

Holiday Home for PP215


Hello there my inky Friends! It's Sunday, time for another Paper Players challenge, and this week I have the pleasure and honor to be hostess! I hope you like my "inchie" layout, and that you'll find time to play along with us! 


Never satisfied with my own work, I made two cards with this layout, one in portrait and one in landscape. I decided to post my CAS portrait version today as I thought it was more true to the original sketch, but tune in tomorrow if you want to see the landscape version! 


Though I have an entire Pinterest Board dedicated to the Holiday Home Stamp Set, it has been sitting on my shelf for a while uninked. Though I didn't use any of the larger images today, I though the bitty ones would work well for this layout. 

There are so many tiny and adorable pieces to this set, and the fact that they are photopolymer makes them a breeze to line up. However, I must issue a warning! They are super sticky in a good way, but don't leave them unattended! Put them right onto your block, clean and put away. Otherwise, a tiny stamp may wind up attached to your package of black card stock for weeks, as did mine!


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Holiday Home
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink Pads: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tangerine Tango
Tools: 1" Square and 3/4" Circle Punches

So glad you stopped by today! 

Please visit the rest of the amazing team at The Paper Players!

Bleached Grateful for You, FMS155


Hi there everyone, and Happy Friday! I have a CAS card with a twist for you today. My card was created with the For All Things Stamp Set. The darker layer of leaves was stamped with Mossy Meadow ink onto Crushed Curry Card Stock. My twist is that bleach was used to stamp the lighter sprig of leaves.

Though I didn't use an actual tag, I think this creation works perfectly for the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches by Karren. 


To stamp with bleach, use an old rectangular shaped plastic takeout container or similar plastic container. Fold up a few layers of paper towels on the bottom to form a stamp pad. Moisten the paper towels with bleach until they are moist but not drippy! Then just stamp onto your 'bleach pad' and stamp. The image will not appear instantly, but over a minute or so, almost magically! Make sure you run your stamp pad under water immediately after so it doesn't get dried out. I love that the darker color ink bleeds through a bit.


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: For All Things
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry
Designer Series Paper: Color Me Autumn
Ink Pads: Caju Craze, Mossy Meadow
Accessories: Linen Thread, Regals Candy Dots
Other: Bleach

Have a great day!

Halloween Fall Fest, CQC260


Hi, Friends! I don't say this very often about my own creations but I love this card! These happy little Halloween friends just make me smile! I'm really loving this Fall Fest stamp set and I'm getting good mileage from it already.


When I saw this awesome color combo at ColourQ I immediately knew what I wanted to create with it. That's doesn't happen too often, either! 


One of the things I love about this set is that is photopolymer, and also that all the shapes have matching framelits. I used a framelit to cut the circle, too. So easy!


I used my new star mask and some modeling paste to create the embossed stars. The texture is awesome! 


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Fall Fest, Good Greetings
Card Stock: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight
Ink Pads: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake
Tools: Big Shot, Circles and Fun Fall Framelits, Hearts & Stars Masks
Other: Liquitex Light Modeling Paste

So glad you stopped by today! Please leave me a comment!

Be of Good Cheer, MM127, FFC40 & MOJO364


Greetings, Stampers! I have a fun pink and silver Christmas Card for you today. I love holiday cards in non-traditional colors!



I'm playing along with three challenges today. Kathy has a fun Christmas Bingo challenge going on at Merry Monday. I went right down the middle: patterned paper, ribbon, and punch. The colors are from the beautiful inspiration photo at Festive Friday, and the layout from Mojo Monday.


Though I couldn't capture it in my photo, all the silver elements have a bit of shine, including the trees that were stamped in Silver Encore Ink, and the card base which is Brushed Silver.


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Festival of Trees, Endless Wishes
Card Stock: Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Smoky Slate
Designer Series Paper: Fancy Foil Silver Vellum
Ink Pads: Silver Encore, Blushing Bride
Tools: Tree Punch
Accessories: Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon, Frosted Sequins, Rhinestones

Thanks for visiting!

Inky hugs!

Paper Pumpkin Fun, RS133


Hello again and a Happy Monday to you, friends! Oh my gosh, the weeks and years pass at a frightening speed, don't they? How do I have a child who is now 30 years old? Eek! I still feel like I haven't quite grown up myself yet, LOL! I still love to play with my toys, which for the last several years have been stamps, paper and ink. Hooray for my inner child! 


Love, love, love the sketches every week at Retro Sketches, and though I can't always find the time to play along I was determined to do so this week. The DT samples were so inspiring. I think I followed this one pretty closely.


If you're like me you have some forgotten items in your craft space, and I'm determined to start using some of my Paper Pumpkin items more often. So much fun stuff in those kits! Nearly everything in this card was from past kits. Super simple card to create; no explanation required. The ingredient list will explain it all, but as always, contact me with questions.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Card Stock: Whisper White
Ink Pads: Memento Tuxedo Black, Summer Starfruit
Tools: 3/16" Corner Punch
Other: White Enamel Dots, old as can be, from I don't know where! 
All Other Supplies: Paper Pumpkin Try It Kit & Good Life Brag Book Kit

Big Inky Hugs!
