Seasonal Wreath Gather Together Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share another Fall themed card with you.  Today, I am using the Seasonal Wreath stamp set and some of the Gather Together Designer Series Paper, for a autumn filled monochromatic card.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card with my card base; which is a piece of 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 Pretty Peacock Cardstock.  I then added a piece of the Gather Together Designer Series Paper cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  For the main focus of the card I stamped the wreath from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink, but before I used the matching dies to cut out the wreath I used my Wink of Stella to give the wreath a little glitter and watercolor look.  I then stamped the sentiment and punched it out with a 1 3/4" circle punch.  
After letting everything dry I popped the wreath up using mini dimensionals in the center of the card.  then placed the sentiment in the center of the wreath on stampin dimensionals.  This was a super easy and fun little card to create for the Fall and Thanksgiving being right around the corner.  This is a great set to create cards for any type of kindness cards you may need.  
Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.  I will be back tomorrow with a new Holiday card video.  
Happy Stampin'

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Team Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to this month's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.  It's Fall still even with the temperature that has dropped to a cool Winter chill.  But sometimes it happens that it starts getting colder during Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving in the States is only three weeks away, and we all have a lot to be thankful for.  During this time of the year in the US we celebrate Thanksgiving a time to be thankful for everything in your life.  Over the last year there has been a lot of ups and downs good and bad that have happened.  I am thankful for so much during this season of thanks.  I am thankful for the time that my Baby brother had to stay with us during his recovery before his untimely passing, I am thankful for my supportive customers and friends.  I am thankful for being part of this training program again this year.  I am thankful for so many things so with all that in mind I wanted to create a card to represent these and all the other things I am Thankful for this season.  Let's have a look at my card. 


Basically for my card I used scraps of the Come Together Designer Series Paper and puzzle pieced these scraps into a design that was pleasing to the eye.  I like to refer to this as the Puzzle Piecing or Patchwork technique.  This is a fun way to create especially if you have hit a brick wall in the creative process.  By working in this technique you free up your mind to get past the blocks that could be keeping you from creating.  Once I had the design figured out I added mats to the designer series paper.  Some of the layers were popped up on dimensionals, some where just glued down using liquid glue.   After stamping the pumpkins I used my Wink of Stella to create a watercolor look on the pumpkins.  I cut them out using the matching dies, and added them to my card.

Give Thanks - Birds Of A Feather Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a fun Thanksgiving card.  Not necessarily a Thanksgiving Day card but a Thanksgiving card.  I used one of my favorite stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog for this card which you may have guessed is Birds of A Feather.  Here's a look at my card.  

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out my stamping the sentiment all over the Soft Suede card base in matching ink.  I then stamped the turkey from the stamp set on a piece of whisper white cardstock and colored it with a few stampin' blends.  Then I layered it up on a piece of Crushed Curry and Shaded Spruce.  I popped that up on a few dimensionals.  

I used the Gather Leaves Dies and cut out leaves in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Merry Merlot, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Mint Macaron.  I added these around the card.  Some I popped up some I didn't and some I only popped up certain parts of the leaves.  I hope that you have enjoyed my little look at my card today, and I am grateful that you have stopped by today.
