Life is a Matter of Moments

This card is one of my all-time favorites!

When I first looked at the colors in the Fall Color Challenge over at Our Creative Corner, I thought, “Ugh, those colors won’t look good together.”  But, once I started putting papers together, I knew it was going to work!

I’ve been busy making cards with the other colors of DSP in the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog, but hadn’t used this Old Olive Print until now.  (Every print in this package of DSP is gorgeous and I will be using every scrap of it!)

The card base is made with Cajun Craze Card Stock.  I took  slightly smaller pieces of Crumb Cake CS and the DSP, punched the corners with Ticket Corner Punch and adhered them together.  Then I added a brad to each corner of the panel and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The smaller layer was done the same way, but  I added a piece of Victoria Crochet Trim to the front of it before adhering it to the card.  I stamped the flower from the Creative Elements Stamp Set 3 times with Chocolate Chip Ink onto Cajun Craze CS. Then I cut 2 of the images smaller so I would have a 3-layer flower.  I went over the edges of each petal with my Chocolate Chip Marker to make them stand out more and then added a few highlights with a Signo Gel Pen.  The 3 pieces were adhered together and to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the label with the dots from the Four Frames Stamp Set using the rock-n-roll method in Old Olive and Cajun Craze Inks, and cut it out with the Decorative Label Punch.  The sentiment was stamped in the middle of the label and then I sponged a tiny bit of the inks in the middle of it.  It is matted with a piece of Cajun Craze.  I just love the way it looks!  Hope you do, too.

I Love Spice Cake!

Standard

Yes, I love the new Spice Cake Designer Series Paper out of the Holiday Mini!! In my last post, I talked about how you always get a few pieces of paper you don’t really like when you buy packs or pads of paper. Well, let me tell you that this pack of paper from Stampin’ Up! is awesome! There is not a single sheet that I don’t like. I will be using every scrap of this paper! Here is a card I made using some of it, along with the newGently Falling Stamp Set which is also out of the Holiday Mini. It’s a set of 12 images that can be used together to create beautiful leaves.  I stamped this leaf with one of the outline stamps on More Mustard CS and then I used an altered “thumping” method on it!  Instead of thumping with my Stampin’ Write Markers on the stamp, I thumped them on my card stock BEFORE I cut out the image.  Then I went over the “veins” on the image with my Chocolate Chip Marker to make them stand out more.  I love the way it turned out!

Speaking of the Holiday Mini Catalog…Have you seen it? I will be getting everything in it! It’s the best mini from Stampin’ Up! yet. They have really outdone themselves this time. Did you see the new stocking Die and the stocking punch? I’ll definitely be using them for my Christmas cards and decorations. Did you see that beautiful medallion wreath? I can’t wait to make one for Fall with the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper. Just click on the button in the right-hand column to see it now.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Terry
