Thinking of You with Frosted Floral

It may be hard to see in the photo, but the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Paper is so beautiful in person! I would highly recommend having this stack of paper in your stash. It's colorful and elegant and is loaded with prints that are not all floral!

Frosted Floral 12" X 12" (30.5 X 30.5 Cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper147800
Colors in the paper are: Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, Pineapple Punch, Powder Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Soft Suede, Tranquil Tide

I paired my paper with the Warm Hearted Host stamp set and the lovely leaves from the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies. Those accents are the slightly sparkly Gold Faceted Gems. Lying flat across the card are snippets of Burlap Ribbon and Lace Trim. I used my Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Marker to color in the letters on my sentiment.

Stamparatus Accessories and "Thank You"

Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso ink colors

Thanks, Thanks, Thanks! I love making and sending cards and a Thank You card is always a good one to make multiples and have on hand. Using the Stamparatus and this large sentiment from the Host Warm Hearted stamp set, you don't need a lot of other ingredients to make your stated THANKS!

Did you know that there are now accessories for the Stamparatus? I am so excited to have extra plates so I can have more than one project set up at at time (invaluable for workshops!) and for that cute little pad of grid paper so I can keep everything straight!!

I chose Fall colors and started with the lightest ink color on top, then added those little leaf/bud "do-dads" underneath and that cute little stamp to the left--what is that called?? Lastly, I added some Twine tied in a bow and a matt layer. Call it done! This will be a great card to make at my monthly Workshop!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a great week.

BOO! Baker's Box

 With Halloween just a month away, it isn't too early to think about how I'm going to box or bag up my treats! I don't go the spooky route, nor do I usually buy a Halloween stamp set, but this greeting and skull from the Warm Hearted Hostess set lets me a create a treat wrap that definitely screams "HALLOWEEN!" :-)

The Blackberry Bliss print has a little shimmer, but you can't see it in the photo.

I chose my colors of purple, green and black, then set out to find some designer series paper to fit one of those colors. My choice was from the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. 

I stamped the "boo" sentiment (it's two layers) using Blackberry Bliss (matches the designer paper) and Highland Heather for an accent. Next, Blackberry Bliss card stock was die cut using the Stitched Labels Framelits. The middle layer is the Granny Apple Green Stitched Oval Shape and the bottom layer is a Basic Black Stitched Label Framelit.

The last part was the fun embellishments! I couldn't wait to use this Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon! It's sparkly and easy to tie. I added some Silver Sequins to match the sparkle in the ribbon and then Mr. Skull was stamped in black onto Pumpkin Pie card stock and fussy cut using my Paper Snips.

Now, what to put in the box??

The back of the lid would have shown my Stampin' Dimensionals, which I used to pop up my tag on the top. I didn't want that to show, so I cut another Stitched Labels Framelit in Granny Apple Green and stuck it to the inside of the lid. I added another little stamped tag (Stitched Labels Framelit) that I stamped with a sentiment from Creatively Yours.

I Am Thankful For You Buffalo Check

Erica Cerwin over at Pink Buckaroo knocked it out of the park with this layered card featuring fall colors with a Buffalo Check background. I could not resist replicating this beauty. I did use a different stamp for my sentiment and for my flowers. 

I also used a different little bow on top and bottom of the Everyday Label punched basket of flowers. The flowers are stamped from At Home With You and colored using Stampin' Write Markers and Stampin' Blends. That lovely Crumb Cake layer was treated to the Big Shot with the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I am thankful that you stopped by today! I hope you were inspired to create something today!
