The Blended Seasons Bundle is Available Starting TOMORROW!

Tomorrow, August 1st, the new, gorgeous Blended Seasons Bundle will be available for purchase!  The bundle contains both the Blended Seasons stamp set, as well as the coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies!   Here’s a peek at the full bundle:

This bundle is perfect for year round crafting!  It contains images and sentiments that can be used for spring and summer flowers, plus autumn leaves, and holly, berries, and bells for the holidays!  Both items are also available separately as well, so if you want just the stamps, or just the dies, you can get just one or the other.  BUT, you will save 10% if you buy both as the bundle!  🙂

The card I made for today’s post uses the leaves stamp from the bundle.  I stamped the leaves in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in Copper Embossing Powder.  I then used my Aqua Painter to add color.  I used Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Old Olive as the colors.  I framed the leaves with an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits, and set it against one of the stitched frames from the Stitched Seasons Framelits.

I used a design from the Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper as the background, and embellished the card with linen thread and some pearls colored with the Ivory Stampin’ Blends marker.  SInce I used Very Vanilla on this card, I wanted the pearls to match.  Coloring them with the Ivory marker was the perfect solution!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Thick Very Vanilla card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Wood Textures DSP layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

Early Espresso stitched backing layer:  2-3/4 x 4 inches

Very Vanilla oval:  2-5/8 x 3-9/16 inches

 

The Blended Seasons Bundle is available beginning August 1st, and is only available until August 31st or while supplies last!  So if you love it, be sure to order early in order to avoid disappointment if it sells out!  You can shop for these exclusive, limited time products HERE.

Thankful for You Nugget Tin

Today’s project is an Autumn/Thanksgiving themed Hershey Nugget tin.  These tins are so easy to make, and they make a nice little gift for someone special!  Each one is simply twelve Hershey nuggets individually wrapped in Designer Series Paper.  For this set, I used products from the Painted Harvest Suite, including the Painted Harvest Stamp set and the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. The nuggets are each wrapped in a 1 x 3 inch strip of paper and adhered with Fast Fuse adhesive.  They are then placed in the tin, and the tin is wrapped with an embossed cardstock band, tied with some Copper Trim and Burlap Ribbon, and finished with a hand stamped “I am Thankful for You” tag!

These little tins are always a great seller at vendor events and craft shows!  I will be making a bunch of Christmas ones in just a couple of weeks for some events I am doing in November and December.  I will be sure to share the finished product for those as well!

As for these, I may make some to place at each setting for Thanksgiving. We’ll see! 🙂

Please see below for the products that were used to make this item.  Thanks for checking in today!

old holiday catalog meets new holiday catalog, DAY 2

Like yesterday’s post, today’s card blends items from both this year’s Holiday Catalog with items from last year’s catalog!  For this card, I used the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and Pick a Pumpkin Bundle (from this year’s catalog).  It also features a sentiment from the Paisleys & Posies set, which was first introduced in last year’s holiday catalog, and is now available on page 128 of the Annual Catalog!

The Pick a Pumpkin Bundle includes both the Pick a Pumpkin Stamp Set and the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies.  The stamp set is available in both Clear Mount and Wood Mount.  Of course, both items are available separately, but buying both as a bundle will save you 10% over the price of purchasing them separately!

Colors on this card include Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango, and Very Vanilla.

Thanks for checking in today! Please check back tomorrow for another “new meets old” holiday creation!

3 x 3 Painted Harvest Mini Note Card Set

I LOVE mini note cards!  Mini note cards are the perfect size to place in lunches, coworkers’ mailboxes, or for use as gift tags! This set was made using the Painted Harvest Bundle, Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, and both the Ribbon of Courage and So Many Shells stamp sets. I love sunflowers, and this set makes it easy to make stunning sunflowers in any color combination you choose.  For these cards, I stuck with traditional yellow, but I’ve seen some made with red, orange, and even some non-traditional greens, blues, and more that are just gorgeous!

These cards measure 3 x 3 inches, and are the perfect size to fit inside the new Mini Pizza Boxes. These cute little boxes measure 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 x 1 inches, and can be used for card sets/tags, but are also food safe, so they can be used for yummy treats as well!  This finished set contains the three cards, as well as three Whisper White 3 x 3 Envelopes (envelopes not shown).  This set would make a cute gift for someone special!

Thanks for stopping by today!

It’s almost Fall! Time for Pumpkins!

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year! Especially in New England! We get such gorgeous colors on the trees, there’s tons of Fall Fairs and Festivals, and everything turns to pumpkins: pumpkin beer, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin bread, and so much more! This card features the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. The paper provides the leafy background, as well as the pumpkins, which were cut and trimmed right from the paper! Finally, the sentiment comes from the Painted Harvest stamp set, which coordinates perfectly with the entire Painted Autumn Suite, available now from Stampin’ Up! Other products used on this card include Linen Thread and Touches of Nature Elements. Colors are Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky, and Tangerine Tango.
