Happy Wednesday

Had my Hostess Club gathering last night.  I always have a lot of fun with those gals 🙂  Unfortunately we were missing some because of summertime and vacations.

Today I’m going to share the bottom left card. It was using the Color Theory Suite.

I love this stamp set Colorful Seasons as it has such versatility.  You can do a summer at the beach because of the lounger chair.  You can can do a fall card using the leaf stamps.  There is a snowflake stamp for a winter card.  This suite also has a Memories and More pack which you can use in photo album, scrapbook pages or to add that extra wow to a card!

The base of this card is Berry Burst cardstock which is 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Next layer is Whisper White which is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″.  For the open house I had a choice of 4 different colors to choose from which included Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive which was cut to the size 3 3/4″ x 5″ and was adhered to the Whisper White layer with stampin dimensionals.  I cut the flowers out of the variegated side of the Color Theory DSP paper using the flower thinlit from the  Seasonal Layers thinlits that go with the stamp set.  The middle of the flower dots used the Glitter Enamel Dots that go this Suite.

I stamped the saying You make me Smile from the stamp set Colorful Seasons onto a scrap of  Whisper White cardstock.  This card used the Berry Burst ink and was then punched out using the new Pretty Label punch.  Also, the Pretty Label punch was used with the DSP paper.

This suite can be found on pgs. 146 – 147 in the new annual catalog.

Vintage Leaves Card

Wow how fast this day has already gone!  I have been busy doing Stampin Up and Thirty One Gift orders all day 🙂

I want to continue with the cards made at the Fall/Autumn class using the Vintage Leaves stamp set.

This was made by using a stencil cut from the Leaf Framelits that go with the Vintage Leaves stamp set, and than sponging the different inks such as, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizazz,Cherry Cobbler on another piece of Very Vanilla so it would look like a leaf.  Then using Early Espresso to stamp the veins on using the Vintage Leaves stamp set.  Next, using the Leaf Framelits to cut it out.  That was the way I did it. I liked the way it gave it a 3-D effect after they were cut out.  Some in the class participants chose to do it a different way and it also turned out great looking.

This one was made by Cyndi and she used to leaves that were left over when I cut out the stencils.  Using the same ink colors she sponged them completely different and when she cut them out with the Leaf Framelits they still looked like 3-D leaves.  She really liked the saying we used on the first card and chose to use it again.

Had problems getting the picture without the glare.  Christy took the paper and instead of using the stencil she just sponged a lot of the colors together blending them as she went along.  Next, she decided where she wanted the leaves and she stamped the veins on the paper and then cut them out using the Leaf Framelits.

It was fun seeing how they took my idea and did their own creation from it.  We had fun watching and learning from each other different ways to use the same materials and ideas!

The ribbon used was from the Holiday catalog set of 3/8″ Ribbon Trio Pack and Old Olive cardstock was used to cut the scalloped oval with the new Oval Framelits. .  The sentiment was stamped using the Paisleys and Poisies stamp set onto Very Vanilla cardstock which was put cut using the Oval Framelits also and then adhered to the Old Olive piece. then that piece was put on using Stampin Dimensionals.

A fun time was had by everyone 🙂
