Stampers By The Dozen September 2017 Hop- Leaves, Branches & Trees!

It's Friday and time for the Stampers By The Dozen September Hop!  This month's theme is leaves, branches, and trees!  

This month I wanted to showcase a stamp set from the Annual Catalog that is one of my favorites, Sheltering Tree!  I love the versatility of this set.  Its perfect for year round stamping and can be used for all four seasons.  My favorite aspect of this stamp set is that it layers.  You can add the swing, lean the bike up against the tree, or make it look like a winter scene with the tiny snowflakes stamp.  

This Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper has to be one of my favorite papers from the Holiday Catalog.  I love the Gold, Silver, and Bronze shine the papers have and this plaid design is my favorite from the pack.  I flipped over a Foil Snowflake to show the versatility of the backside of these and embossed my tree using Gold Embossing Powder.  For an extra pop of gold, I used Gold Foil Sheet and a some gold washi tape from the Year of Cheer Washi Tape Pack.  

The best part of this card is that it can be used for multiple occasions from birthday, to thank you, to the theme that is never fun to make, sympathy cards.  This card would be perfect for an upcoming class, but the skill level would be best for moderate stampers as the embossing can be challenging for some beginner stampers.

ICS Blog Hop September 2017 - Welcome the New Holiday Catalog!

It's the first Wednesday of the month and time for another Inspire, Create, and Share blog hop! This month's theme is Introducing the new Holiday Catalog!  I love the Holidays!  It's the perfect time of the year to get cozy, spend time with family, and spread the love around just a little bit more to each other.  

My project for this month is introducing the Merry Cafe stamp set.    I also wanted to highlight a BIG introduction to fall, the Pumpkin Spice Latte!  While I'm not a big fan of pumpkin (other than pumpkin pie!), you know fall is here when September 1st comes and Starbucks releases it's Pumpkin Spice Latte (or PSL for all things pumpkin lovers)!  

I LOVE how this stamp set coordinates with the Coffee Cup Framelit Dies from the annual catalog!  It's a perfect addition and a  great way to make your dies stretch for use in multiple ways and for different seasons!  Don't you love the shiny foil?  I cut a Foil Snowflake in half and used one of the gold toned snowflakes on this card.  I love how these can be used not just for winter project or Christmas cards, and the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper is a perfect addition to the coffee cup and banner!  

The Merry Cafe stamp set is perfect for use in Fall, Halloween, and Christmas cards and projects.  I love that Stampin' Up created a stamp for the small die.  When it was first released, Demonstrators were worried that there was not a coordinating stamp for the smallest coffee cup die, but in their usual fashion, they though of that ahead of time and released it with this stamp set!  As a final touch, I used a little Wink of Stella glitter brush on the top of the lid to give it a final shine!

Global Stamping Friends - Color Challenge Time!

It's the first Friday of the month and time for our next Global Stamping Friends Hop!  
This month's theme is a color challenge! I LOVE color challenges as they give me an opportunity to use colors I may not always use, and pair them with others that I may not always pair them with.  This month's colors were Whisper White, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, and Night of Navy.  

These colors are perfect for each other!  It was easier for me to pair Night of Navy and Smoky Slate but throwing in the Pool Party, which is a color I rarely use, was a little difficult for me.  In the end I came up with a project I love!

I love the simplicity of the card while being dramatic with the circles.  I used Whisper White craft ink on to stamp on my card.  Craft ink is great for embossing, which I did not do here, and takes a little longer to dry than our regular inks.  I used the Eastern Beauty stamp set to make the geometric background.  Peeking out behind the Stitched Shape circle, is a piece of the new Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper as well as a Night of Navy piece of washi tape.
