Wishing You Well for Autumn with the Sisterhood of Crafters

Autumn Card Featuring #WishingYouWell, #GetWell, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

Are you ready for the next challenge for the Sisterhood of Crafters? I hope so! If you are as ready for some cooler Fall weather like I am, you will love this one. Our host, Diane, has chosen “Plaids” and the design team has made some great inspiration cards to get you started. Wishing You Well is a brand new stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog and it was way up on my list of Must-Haves – I love it! The very pretty image goes beautifully with the wonderful plaid paper in the Under the Mistletoe Designer Paper in the Annual Catalog.

My Secrets to Making This Wishing You Well Project

  • This card is very straightforward and so much fun to make! Going with the colors in the DSP was my first decision.
  • I ran the Night of Navy cardstock through my Big Shop in the Tufted embossing folder to add a little texture.
  • Then, the bouquet was inked up in Crumb Cake and the bow layered on top in Night of Navy.
  • The stamped image was then cropped in the Stitched Season Framelits.
  • My favorite embellishment in the Holiday Catalog is the Braided Linen Trim and wanted to see if I could layer on top of it. I think it looks great behind the focal point, don’t you?
  • The sentiment was stamped in Crumb Cake and cropped out with the Classic Label Punch. Then, Crumb Cake cardstock was punched with the same punch to layer behind the sentiment.
  • Lastly, Natural Expressions Elements were placed around the focal point. The leaves around the flowers were colored with the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends marker.

Varied Vases is Just a Bike Ride Away to Retro Rubber

Great Rustic Card Featuring #BikeRide, #VariedVases, #BackToSchool, #AllOcassion, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

We are ready for another challenge at Retro Rubber. It’s September so a photo inspiration with a School theme seemed pretty appropriate. Of course, this photo can inspire you in any way you choose – colors, sketch or even just an item you see. I wanted to use the colors but found stamps that worked well, also. The Bike Ride stamp set is just turning retro by our definition since it came out in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. Varied Vases is a very popular new stamp set, which I used for its great sentiments as well as the vase and its coordinating punch. Swirly Frames is another brand new stamp set that I was excited to use, which you can see framing “Hello.”

 

 

 

My Secrets to Making This Project

  • The various items on the table are from Bike Ride. I thought it would show how versatile this set really is! You don’t have to use them on the bike. It’s also the only set of books stamp I own! LOL
  • I have been digging through my stash of precut shapes and found the rectangle that was already dry embossed with Pinewood Planks. It’s day had come! Then, I used a scrap of Wood Textures for the bottom of the panel.
  • The pieces were easily stamped and cut with their coordinating framelits. Sentiments were stamped and cropped as well.
  • I had just received the Frames Elements this week so I colored one with the Gold Wink of Stella brush and glued it to the card. The sentiment was then adhered above it.
