Totally Trees Step It Up Saturday

I knew I wanted to share this step-it-up set of cards on World Card-Making Day.

The first card was a simple but lovely card created for the Fabulous Fall Stamp Camp.  We used the Totally Trees stamp set and the Rose Wonder stamp set for the phrase.  Also used for this card was the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper (sorry, not one on sale), Layering Squares Framelits, and the Ribbon Trio Pack. We did double dip the inking of leaves on this card – start with the lightest color and before stamping lightly restamp into a darker color.

But even though I liked this card, I knew it was a perfect card to step up.

I added another vertical layer behind the DSP, tied a knot with ribbon, added three copper circles, and embossed both the phrase and the leaves on the tree.  Some very simple changes, but they really make this card pop.

Show me some love and subscribe to my blog.  At the end of October, I will review all new subscribers, and if they have ordered from me, I will put them into a random door prize drawing for a $10 gift certificate.

Welcome September Leaves

Oh, September.  You are here.  My favorite season is upon us.  I can officially start baking with pumpkin and decorate with gourds and leaves.

The new products in the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog are now available.  I created this the other day; what do you think?

STAMPIN' UP HOLIDAY CATALOG-RYAN

 

Well, speaking of the new holiday catalog, why not show off a stamping creation?  Here is one of my favorite samples of the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set.  Colors used are Mossy Meadow, Rich Razzleberry, and thick White Card Stock.  I embossed the images in gold, and then used the new Leaflets framelits and Tags and Labels framelits to cut out the phrase and the leaf.  The Into the Woods Designer Series Paper is simply gorgeous.  You will covet this paper!  But don’t forget, you can always get more so USE IT!!!  Embellishments included designer and antique buttons, the banner punch, and the new Into the Woods cotton ribbon.

Gently Falling Collage Acorn Card

I’m still using that One Sheet Wonder image sheet – here’s one with embossed acorns made from the Autumn Accents die and the Square Lattice embossing folder.  The wood button give the card a more earthy, rustic feel.  The phrase is from Six-Sided Sampler

Gently Falling Island Indigo and Eggplant Thanksgiving Card

Island Indigo and Elegant Eggplant…what a rich color combination!  That coordinate so well with the Very Vanilla and gold embossing accents.  Love those leaves embossed in gold.  Here is the card I created with those “ingredients”:

Wonderfall Embossed Leaves Card

Autumn….a much nicer turn of a phrase than fall, right?  This card should get you right in the mood of the season.

I love to emboss, and I still am amazed when the fragments of dust melt into something so beautiful!

I’m at it again with that One Sheet Wonder image sheet – quick and simple thinking of you card. A little sparkle from the gold glimmer paper.  The phrase is from Wetlands (I just love the font on those phrases).

World Card-Making Day – Gently Falling Oak Leaf Card

Today is World Card-Making Day!   What cards do you need to make?  I can always use “Thinking of You” cards – they serve so many purposes!

Love this color combination for fall – Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, and Brushed Gold.  So very elegant.  The leaf was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

Sending cards with lots of embellishments can be tricky with the postal service.  So here’s a quick tip – use cardstock circles instead of brads.  They add interest, layers, but not a lot of bulk.  This way the card can be easily mailed.
