STILL NIGHT

 

Playing around with some DSP, Corrugated DTIF, and STILL NIGHT Bundle, I had a hard time deciding where to put the “thinking of you”.   I decided it was busy enough without it and ended up with the first design.  I love that little owl – just a hint of color with a sponge dauber, he sits perfectly on the versatile copper branch ready to pounce on his dinner.  I like the touch of copper metallic pearls which give it just enough pizzazz.  I posted the supplies below for both projects if you want to add this combination to your craft room.

Here is another card creation that I CASED from a Demonstrator Website and changed it up just a bit to personalize it….however, I loved the original just as is!!!  Here is my slightly changed version.

Merry Merlot has become one of my favorite colors this season…and oh that double sided ribbon goes so well with the DSP!  I layered several blank die cuts of the owl so it stands out quite a bit from the frame.  The photo does not do it justice.  I also colored the owl with Stampin’ Blends – the original was stamped in smokey slate with no coloring.  I love the DSP and how the branches in copper foil frame Mr. Owl.  I separated the supplies used for each card so you can see them easier.  The SUPPLIES for this card begin at the top of the list and end with the Nature’s Poem DSP .  I hope that is not too confusing.

Thanks for stopping by today for this mid-week idea.  Please remember to sign up for the next buffet on November 13th – hurry…we are ALMOST full!   We’ll be making cards with BEAUTIFUL BLIZZARD  set offered from November 1-November 30th only!!!  Watch for details on my Stampiin’ Up webpage.

I hope you take a minute to comment…your effort to do that is greatly appreciated.

CASE THE CATALOG

CASE THE CATTIE (CATALOG)

Sometimes time runs out and creativity is compromised…never fear – the catalog is near. such a blessing to have many card choices from which to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) .  I needed a quick thank you note and found this cute daisy card in the catalog on page 123….simple, clean and VERY EASY!  Best of all are the resources that are readily available on the Demonstrator Website.  They give us a Print Lab that lists ALL the products used for every card in the catalog.  It makes life so easy and just another reason to become a hobby demonstrator.  Isn’t this card just cute and simple?  Here is the list of supplies:

CARD SHOWER and WATCH OUT for October 23rd!!!

IMG_2310

A SHOWER OF CARDS

Thanks to all who made a card for Meera’S 9TH Birthday!  Meera is a budding SU demonstrator and stamper.   Look at these beautiful creations….you can tell by the look on her face that she was surprised and excited.

 

Nita shared her special Indian Mamre snack with turmeric followed with delicious carrot cake from Marion’s Legacy and Maple Leaf’s  fresh apple cider to make the time special.  A  time for thank you cards gave us another play date.  Many Blessings is such a delightful stamp set for little 3×3 cards.

RECIPE and PRODUCT LIST:

  1. Cut a piece of cardstock – color of choice – 3 x 6 and score at 3″
  2. Cut 2 pieces of vanilla card stock 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 for  front image and inside message
  3. Stamp image on vanilla card stock and color with watercolor pencils, Stamp and Blends or your choice of coloring tools.  We used the stamparatus tool and were able to stamp 10 cards perfectly in a very short time – no guessing no mistakes and perfect stamping every time.
  4. Stamp sentiment on vanilla cardstock. Use classic punch for sentiment and also cut one out of the same color as the base cardstock for shadowing.  We gave the label a bit of dimension with mini dimensionals.

Meet the STAMPERS – sharing their CREATIVITY for WCMD

WCMD – WORLD CARD MAKING DAY – brought out the best in everyone!!        These stampers were prompted to make creative works of art.  Look at what was  shared at the October Buffet.  Be sure to comment and let us know what you think.

Meet KAREN FORD who shared her incredible talent not only for cards but for paper crafting projects as well.  (More to come on the next blog)  Here are her creations for WCMD.  The mini card at the end was tucked inside that OUTSTANDING paper crafted purse.  I was so excited to see what she produces  in her craft room!

Meet DIANE BAUER a frequent contributor to this blog with her unique cards.  Each one a bit different but with her own creative flair.  She did a series of these halloween cards with fussy cut hats from DSP sold on the clearance rack.  She said that once she started she couldn’t stop cutting those cute hats which were different for every card!

These retiform technique cards were also designed by DIANE BAUER  – so good at using an idea and creating her own design!  Take a look at these creations from just a couple of samples of the easy retiform technique!

Meet ELAINE WERNER  whose detailed card impressed us all.  The photograph barely shows the intricate detail in this multi-fold card – a scrapbook piece in a card!  Take a close look at that Menomonie paper!!! Watch the next blog for her cute paper craft project.

Meet DIANE EDWARDS  a long time stamper who does unique work in her craft room.  She loves to watercolor and adding unusual touches to her cards…notice the guinea hen feather on this wonderful card.

A BIG THANK YOU  to all for sharing your talent for making cards.  I hope this inspires you – the readers of this blog – to contribute your cards even if you don’t come to the buffet.  I would love to post them.  Just send them to me with any details you care to share and I will be happy to include you in the next blog posts.  Sharing is a big part of the Stampin’Up Community – it sparks the creativity in all of us.  Creativity is a natural gift and we all have it – all we need is an outlet to express it.

Come to the next buffet  NOVEMBER 13th at the Quality Inn and Suites in Menomonie WI.  If you can’t join us be sure to order the kits for the cards (which includes everything but the adhesive) to make them at home.  Kits are $2.50 each – minimum of 5 kits for mailing plus shipping.

TAGS AND TIDINGS

TAGS TLC JOES

Did you get a chance to watch the video on Heartfelt Designs facebook page about the Tags and Tidings bundle.  I have had a chance to play with it this week and thought it might be fun to add this set to the buffet to accompany the Mistletoe Tag Kit we have been using.  Copper embossing powder certainly has my vote to make these cute tags that punch the holes needed to attach to gifts, cards, additional tags and more.  It makes 16 tags in one turn of the Big Shot!!!  Aren’t these tag designs just the cutest?  There are many of these ideas on line.  Come play and create your own unique design with paper, punches, ribbon and this bundle.

I have added the new 2018 In Color Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the tags  are just as cute in every color.  You can also stamp them in black ink so they may be colored with Stampin’ Blends for Stampin’ Write markers.  I am excited to share these with you at the buffet on Tuesday, October 9th.  Be sure to watch the video to learn how.

HAPPY OCTOBER

 It’s a dreary Wisconsin October day so I’m crafting cards – from sympathy, to birthday, to wedding, to gift cards – knowing that their destination will bring some sunshine into the lives of others.   Here is an easy-peasy sympathy card that might hit the buffet next week.  Sorry about the photo..it doesn’t show the embossing very well…in too much of a hurry!

sympathy - winter woods

Supplies:  I used Soft Suede cardstock for the base  Then I stamped the trees from Winter Woods Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on very vanilla cardstock.   Seems like the time of year to switch from that summer crisp white to the ivory look for fall.   I stamped the trees first and then ran it through the Big Shot with the elegant Darice Sympathy embossing folder.  Wrapped a piece of that new braided linen trim(147808} around the top panel and adhered it to the base with dimensionals to pop it up a bit.  Stamped a little sentiment inside on a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of vanilla cardstock and DONE!  EASY PEASY!

Update on WCMD :Today is DAY ONE of World Card Making Week and Stampin’ Up is celebrating by offering 10% off on certain products!!!
