Above It All Plaid

I have one more project using the Above It All Bundle, well, just the stamp set on this one.  I know you're looking at this card and thinking, "I don't think she did use the stamp set".  Check out that plaid pattern though, every single line is stamped with the wire stamp from the Above It All Set.  Using just that stamp, stamped repeatedly in different colors I made a really fun plaid background to a fun card!  

stampin up, above it all, pick of the patch

I pulled out the Pick Of The Patch Set for some adorable pumpkins and I used my Alphabet A La Mode Dies for my greeting. I die cut them in the Soft Shimmer Paper for some extra sparkle.  TIP: Add an Adhesive Sheet onto your paper before die cutting for easy gluing!  While I only used the stamp sets Above It All and Pick Of The Patch, I linked the bundles below. Trust me if you love the stamps you'll want the bundles!  I have a full supply list below you can shop for these products in my Online Store.

Above It All Sunset Ink Blended Background Card-VIDEO

I am so excited to share this card with you today!  It is a stunning card, I don't think the pictures do it proper justice.  I'm using the Above It All Bundle from the Mini Catalog.  This is a really fun and different bundle then we've had I love it!  I live in Albuquerque New Mexico and here we have the Sandia Peak Tram, when I saw this set.  I immediately thought about our tram.  It's a fun adventure and I highly recommend it if you're visiting the city.  The thought behind this card was a New Mexico sunset with the mountains below.  I love it!  It's perfect!  

I ink blended the background, check my supply list below for all the colors that I used.  Ink blending can be a bit of an arm workout.  The more you blend the smoother the color will become so if you're not happy with the look when you begin, keep going!    I used some Wink Of Stella to splatter lots of 'stars' and sparkle on the background.

I stamped my tram car in Lost Lagoon and Pretty Peacock.  The mountains are die cut with the dies and I LOVE the details they give on the mountains.

Fresh Start

If you've been waiting for the Trucking Along Bundle to return to the Online Store, it's almost time!  This bundle is scheduled to be back in stock the week of October 9, keep checking early though, sometimes things come into stock early.  I have another fun card to share with you featuring this set.  I used strips of cardstock in Copper Clay, Old Olive and Crushed Curry to cover the card front of my card.  These were all just scraps of varying widths that I trimmed to 4 1/4" long and just adhered them to the front of the card.  This is a fun way to use scraps and make a great background.  To make my truck pop I added a die cut circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies and some Vellum.  

stampin up, trucking along

My truck is stamped in Copper Clay, then filled in with the solid truck image and stamped with Copper Clay, stamped off once.  I used Stampin' Blends to color the wheels and sunflowers in the bed of truck.  I always add a touch of Pool Party to the windows for a finishing effect.  I finished the card with some Linen Thread and In Color Dots.  I have a full supply list below.  You can shop for these products in my Online Store.  Check for the Trucking Along Bundle the week of October 9, or before.  The stamp set is available now in my Online Store.

The Gorgeously Made Dies are a great set to have.  Put this one in your stash.  I used some Azure Afternoon Ribbon from the Sheer Ribbon Combo. It adds a fun touch to the slider.

Autumn Is Beautiful

If you loved the Autumn Leaves Box I shared with you yesterday, you'll love this one too.  I went with some more traditional fall like colors for this card.  I absolutely love this greeting, "Autumn teaches us that change can be beautiful"  Isn't that great!?!  I know that I struggle with change of any kind so this is a great reminder that not all change is bad, sometimes it can lead to wonderful things.  

stampin up, autumn leaves

The DSP is from the Garden Walk DSP and my colors for the card are chosen directly from the DSP.  I stamped leaves in Pretty Peacock and Poppy Parade and die cut leaves from Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow and Wild Wheat.  The detail on the leaves was die cut from the Rose Gold Foil Paper, available in my Online Store.  Make sure you use an Adhesive Sheet on the back of the leaf detail before die cutting.  This will make adhering it soooo easy!!!  I have a full supply list below.  You can shop for these products in my Online Store.

Autumn Leaves Cupcake Box-VIDEO

Today I'm sharing a gorgeous box!  This one gives me all the autumn vibes and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bright autumn color combination!  So pretty!!!  At the store over the weekend I found some pumpkin Hostess Cupcakes.  I love these.  They're yummy and make great gifts!  I wanted to make a box with them and I started thinking about the box.  I've made LOTS of cupcake boxes and so instead of reinventing the wheel I decided to look back and use of my designs just redone.  I found this post and I love this box so I ran with it!  

stampin up, autumn leaves

I pulled my color combo from the Glorious Gingham DSP.  I added a pop of Pumpkin Pie because I thought it needed it but other wise the Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Pecan Pie was inspired by the DSP.  I stamped two of the leaves and used Early Espresso for the veining in the leaves.  This set stamps so beautifully! 

stampin up, autumn leaves

The labels is die from the coordinating Autumn Leaves Dies.  I embellished my box with some Pecan Pie Ribbon and Neutral Sequins.  The box is quick to put together and there's no glue or trimming. You can store them flat then assemble them when you need to give them away.  This would make a great birthday gift too. The box is a good size so you can fit lots of gifts in it.

Inside is my Hostess Pumpkin Cupcake.  If you can't find these any of the Hostess/Little Debbie/Entemanns cupcakes will fit perfectly!  Bookmark this design and use it all year long.
