Gather Together Clean & Simple Fall Card

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my card for this week's creative challenge over at the Spot.  This week we have a fun clean & simple Fall challenge for you to play along with.  I created a card using the Gather Together Bundle that is a returning favorite from last years Holiday Catalog, and is currently in the August-December Mini Catalog.  Here's a look at the card that I created.

Here's the challenge image that inspired my card today.  You can click on the image below to go to the Spot and check out what the other design team members created and play along with us this week.  


I started out my card with a Thick Whisper White Card base cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored it in half at 5 1/2" to make a top folding card.  After deciding on which stamp set and colors I was going to use I started in creating my project.  I cut a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock and stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together Stamp Set in Versamark Ink around the card in one layer.  To this I added some Perfect Pearls (something that must crafters have in their stash) in Gold.

I brushed the excess away and stamped the large leaf again around the card filling up any areas that was open.  I then applied Perfect Pearls again but in the color Perfect Pearls.  If you are unfamiliar with Perfect Pearls it's a pearlized powder that can be added to a sticky ink or adding to projects to give a shine.  You could also heat emboss the leaves in the background with just Versamark and metallic Embossing Powders.  

Next I did a little die cutting with the leaf dies from the set.  I love this set of dies because you get four different types of leaves.  The small ones not only cut out the leaves but they emboss the vines on the inside as well.  I cut the three small leaves from scraps of Pumpkin Pie, Merry Merlot, and Mossy Meadow cardstocks.  I then die cut the large leaf from Whisper White Cardstock and stamped my sentiment in Merry Merlot Ink.  I placed this on my card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I placed the small leaves behind the larger ones with Stampin' Seal.

To finish off my card I added a few of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots around the leaves.  This was to add more gold to the card and to draw your attention to the sentiment.  Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a wonderful day.  If you need any of the supplies you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the items in the shopping list below.

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.
