This set is turning out to be one of my go to sets from the OC, Picture Perfect Birthday, page 5.  I used the Stamparatus to perfectly place the images and the colors I used were Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pacific Point.  The background paper is from the DSP Stack Tutti Frutti 6X6, page 29 of the OC. I used both Whisper White regular and Heavy card stock for my base card.

This is one of my favorite Thinlit sets, Celebrate you pg17, from SAB.  I embossed the butterfly, from Beautiful Day, pg 26 OC, with Copper embossing powder.  I used watercolor paper and filled the image with water.  I then sprinkled Brusho color, pg 20 OC, on the water and used an aqua painter to move the color around.  Colors I used were Brilliant Red, Yellow and Gamboge.  After the image was dried, I sprinkled yellow on the front of the card and gently spritzed with water to provide the background.  I selected Basic Black card stock for the sentiment and cut it out with the Big shot, pg 209 of the AC. Multipurpose adhesive sheets, pg 203, AC, were used to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

I am in love with the DSP, Painted with Love, page 10 of the OC.  It is my fav paper ever.  I used this as background on this card stamped with last year’s stamp, Bloomin’ Love, page 88 of the AC.  I used Whisper white card stock and cut out the hearts from the DSP using the Big shot Sweet & Sassy Framelits on page 214 AC.  In addition, I embellished the front of the card with the Metallic Enamel shapes, page 196 of AC.  I used the Framelit to cut out the banner from the set Large Numbers Framelits, page 215 of AC.

It is my first born’s birthday today.  She is such an incredible person and I wanted to use this space to tell her so.  What an AMAZING cook she is.  I just spent time with her in TN and she cooked me the most incredible gourmet meals.

I used Brusho on this card.  This time I shook the Brusho out on a large block and then spritzed with water to create this background. I moved the card stock over the block and picked up color from the block.  I loved the way it came out.  I used Brusho Yellow, Gamboge, and Brilliant Red colours.
I colored the flowers from the stamp set, Amazing You, page 16 of the SAB catalog, with our SU markers, Calypso Coral and Peek-a-boo Peach, and Daffodil delight, and Crushed Curry.  The embellishments in the flowers centers are Gold faceted Gems.
Right now through March 31 you can get this stamp set FREE by purchasing $50 of product.  In fact if you spend $100 in product, you can get the coordinating Thinlit dies FREE.   See page 17, SAB for details. The possibilities are endless with these products.

This card was created using Epic Celebration, page 12, SAB catalog.  I used the Brusho (page 26 OC) technique on the background.  This time I spritzed the watercolor paper with water and then applied Prussian Blue and Moss Green Brusho.  Let it dry naturally and stamped.  I used the beautiful Umbre ribbon, page 198, AC for embellishment.  I colored the sneakers with Stampin Blends, page 30 of the OC.

IN this card, I sponged soft suede ink and distressed the card stock to appear vintage style.  The Stamp set, Night in Bethlehem was from the HC, page 26.  I used clear embossing powder on the very vanilla card stock creating a emboss resist affect.  I used the Metallic sequin Assortment, pg 197 AC.  In addition, I used the background stamp, Sheet music, page 165 in the AC.

08. November 2017 · Comments Off on Year of Cheer with an Autumn Twist · Categories: Cards

Is everyone loving the new holiday catalog so far?!? I know I am! I’m here today to show you how you can use the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (item 144640) for fall cards, as well. Who doesn’t love Designer Series Paper that can be used for more than just one occasion?


The 2017 holiday catalog has some great fall stamp sets. Today I’m using the Gourd Goodness (item 144785) and Labels to Love (item 144967) Stamp Sets.


First up is the Gourd Goodness Stamp Set and the pretty leafy sheet from the Designer Series Paper  pack. I started by layering this on Berry Burst Cardstock (item 144243). Next, I stamped the bottom layer of the pumpkin image in Peekaboo Peach Classic Stampin’ ink (item 141398) on Shimmery White Cardstock (item 101910). I stamped the top layer of the pumpkin with none other than the Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 126945).


I decided to add an additional highlight to the pumpkin by coloring in the white spot with the Crushed Curry Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 131173) and an Aqua Painter (item 103954). After stamping the pumpkin stems with the Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin’ Pad (item 126979), I cut out the pumpkins using my Paper Snips (item 103579). Next, I cut out some leaves using the Leaf Punch (item 144667).

I then die cut a circle from Whisper White Cardstock (item 100730) using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (item 145372) and layered this onto a Berry Burst Cardstock scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies (item 141705).

I added my pumpkins to the circle with the leaves surrounding it. A sentiment stamped on Berry Burst Cardstock punched with the Classic Label Punch (item 141491) and Calypso Coral ¼” Ombre Ribbon (item 144235) finished off the card.


Now onto a Halloween card. I am using the Labels to Love Stamp Set for this fun card. I started with a piece of the Gold Plaid Paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper layered on Basic Black Cardstock (item 121045) and Pumpkin Pie Cardstock (item 105117).


On top of that I added a strip of Gold Glimmer Paper (item 133719) accented with Vintage Crochet Trim (item 144611). Just add the trim to the top and bottom of the Glimmer strip using Snail Adhesive (item 104332).

I stamped the sentiment using the Versamark Pad (item 102283 ) on Elegant Eggplant Cardstock (item 105126) and embossed with White  Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109132) and the Heat Tool (item 129053). I then punched this out with the new Everyday Label Punch (item 144668). This punch has such a great look! Before I glued the Elegant Eggplant label to the card, I punched Basic Black cardstock using the Starburst Punch (item 143717) to layer behind the label.

I also stamped the sentiment three other times on Whisper White Cardstock so I could fussy cut those little bats and add them as accents on the card. I added some of the new Black Rhinestone Jewels (item 144639) as well!


For my final card, I used the starburst pattern from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper along with the Labels to Love Stamp Set.



I started by coloring the Designer Series Paper with Rich Razzleberry, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils (item 141709). Then I blended the colors with my Aqua Painter for a watercolor background. I splattered Fresh Fig Classic Stampin’ ink (item 144082) with my Aqua Painter on top of the watercoloring. I like how you can see the starbursts popping through the watercoloring.

Next I stamped the sentiment and border in Basic Black Archival Stampin’ ink (item 140931) on Crumb Cake Cardstock (item 120953) and punched using the Everyday Label Punch. Behind the label, I die cut a couple of leaves using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies (item 143751), Old Olive Cardstock (item 100702), and Chocolate Chip Cardstock (item 102128). To finish the card, I added Gold Mini Sequin Trim (item 144128) and gold sequins from the Metallic Sequins Assortment (item 144214).

I hope this inspires you to think of ways to use your Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper for other occasions.
