Fall Cards with the Painted Harvest stamp set


Can you tell I love this stamp set! I promise to move on to another stamp set after this post! It sure is fun to work with. You can do so much with it! This stamp set comes with images to build this flower in layers. It is fun to make flowers in different colors!


I used the Buffalo Check Background stamp to make the center panel. You can find this background stamp in the new 2018 Holiday Catalog.  I stamped the flower with Daffodil Delight Stampin’Pad for the base of the flower and the accent image is stamped with Crushed Curry Stampin’Pad.

I made a mask using a large post it note, the same size as my center panel and stamped the leaves with Old Olive Stampin’Pad. I also used the Leaf Punch to punch on the other leaf images. I added a twine bow that I made from the Burlap Ribbon.

leaf punch sample card

Here is a card made by the Stampin’Up! home office. Isn’t it just gorgeous? I love it! They used the leaf image in the stamp set to make the background on the card. It looks like they used Garden Green cardstock and the Garden Green Stampin’Pad to do this. To me it looks like the leaf was stamped Soft Suede Stampin’Pad on Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock. It is just perfect! So I plan to CASE this card for sure. The tiny acorn images and the designer series paper band across the bottom portion of the card are from paper that is currently retired. You can see the Burlap Ribbon and the white Twine on the card does add so much interest also. The wooden elements add a wonderful touch too!

I hope you enjoyed my cards today and they inspire you to CREATE!

Ending soon!

Using the Buffalo Check Background Stamp and StampinUp! News


Here is another idea using this wonderful background stamp! This is the new background stamp called Buffalo Check from the new 2018 Holiday Catalog by Stampin’Up! I stamped the image on Real Red cardstock using the Memento Black Stamp Pad. The stamped panel is then layered on Thick Whisper White cardstock.


Isn’t the reindeer cute! This is an image from the Cookie Cutter Christmas photopolymer stamp set which is in the Annual Catalog.  I simply stamped the image on Crumb Cake cardstock using the Memento Black Stamp Pad. I colored the antlers with the Crumb Cake Light Stampin’Blend Alcohol Marker. I used the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to cut the image out.

Blossoming Basket Card and Paper Pumpkin Special Offer


I finally got to play with my favorite Sale-a-bration stamp set Blossoming Basket! The stamp set is part of a Bundle that also includes the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.  You can earn this bundle of products FREE with a purchase of $100 (before shipping and tax) during Sale-a-bration.


I embossed the basket image on watercolor paper using the Versamark Pad and white embossing powder. I then colored the image in with an aquapainter using Crumb Cake ink, old olive and Blushing Bride ink. Blushing Bride ink is very pale, so instead of just squeezing the stampin’pad to pick up ink on the lid, I used a drop of the ink refill. That way I got more intense Blushing Bride color for the blooms. I added a little Sahara Sand ink to the bottom of the basket just for a just watered plant look.


The little butterfly image is just darling! I stamped him with the Black Archival Stampin’Pad and watercolored him with the Aquapainter using Old Olive, Blushing Bride and Crushed Curry ink. Using a drop from the refills to pick up the color. I embossed a strip of Crumb Cake Cardstock using the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder that comes with the bundle. I cut the Burlap Ribbon into strips for the little twine bow on the handle of the basket.


I hope you like my card and it inspires you to CREATE! Take advantage of  Stampin’Up!’s best promotion of the year Sale-a-bration! This promotion ends March 31!

More Lots of Lavender Cards


This is a Sale-a-bration stamp set called Lots of Lavender. You can earn FREE with a $50 purchase until March 31. This design is very similar to a card in an earlier post, it is just a little different layout. It is very simple! I just love this stamp set! It is so easy to work with. The image is totally colored by stamps in the set. Very clever of Stampin’Up! to design it this way. I added a couple of Gold Faceted Gems to the top and bottom of the card. The colors used are Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizazz, Sahara Sand. The greeting comes from the Wild About Flowers stamp set.

Here is another idea with this stamp set


The cardstock is Wisteria Wonder and the Designer Series Paper is retired.  I used the greeting from the Party Pandas stamp set which is another FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set with a $50 purchase.

Sale-a-bration ends March 31. Click on the brochure icon in the right sidebar to see the products offered in this promotion. This is Stampin’Up!’s best promotion of the year!

Remember my Host Code special offer for your purchase of $75 (before shipping and tax). Order by January 30 and receive a FREE Light Pool Party Stampin’Blend Alcohol Marker from me.
