Arrange A Wreath - Fall

Fall is upon us and I have another project to share today. 

PicsArt_09-12-03.27.25

I think Arrange A Wreath has been a go to set for me. Even though when you first look at the Bundle, one might think its all going to look the same, but you can really customize for many looks and occasions.

This is one of my favorite fall themed projects using Arrange A Wreath and Crushed Curry Card Stock.  See how I used the flower die, well in another project, I used that same die as a poinsettia. 

Card Details:

  • Crushed Curry CS cut 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 and 3 scrap pieces for flowers 1-1/2" square pieces
    • score large piece at 4-1/4 to make card base
    • die cut 3 flowers with 1-1/2" squares
  • DSP from In Good Taste cut to 4 x 5-1/4
    • adhere to card base
  • Wreath pieces from Garden Green & Granny Apple Green CS. 4 x 4" piece of each color
    • cut berry wreath in Garden Green & adhere on top of DSP
    • cut leaf wreath in Granny Apple Green & adhere on top of Garden Green
    • adhere the 3 flowers
  • Three Crumb Cake scraps about 1 x 1
    • stamp 3 flower centers in Early Espresso
    • die cut and adhere to center of flowers
  • Whisper White CS 2 x 3.
    • stamp sign with Early Espresso BUT ink stamp, stamp on scrap paper then onto Whisper White
    • direct stamp the words in Early Espresso ink
    • fussy cut with Paper Snips
  • Forever Greenery Ribbon combo pack.  Cut a 3" piece of ribbon and adhere with glue dots to back of sign then adhere to card

I hope you like this project as much as I do.  Love how the Crushed Curry just pops against the wood grain DSP from In Good Taste

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Fall Is In The Air

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our TEAM Blog Hop!  Our theme for September is Fall.  

I am excited as fall is my favorite time of the year.  The fresh, crisp air; warm and sunny days; and cool nights, not too mention the beautiful colors of changing leaves.  And I wouldn't dare leave out my ultimate favorite part, Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  Mmmmm.... I can hardly wait!

So what is your favorite season?

If you like fall too, you are going to love this card featuring the Plaid Tidings 6x6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  Stampin' Up! did such a great job in the plaid patterns and the color combinations.  Speaking of colors, there are at least sixteen, yes, 16 different Stampin' Up! colors featured with this paper, which I think makes it versatile for more than just fall.

Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set

Hi there.  

Life is Beautiful... what a great name for a stamp set.  I think it is quiet a fitting reminder for today, well, really for this year.  I feel we need to be reminded during these trying time that life is beautiful, we just need to see it.  

I just love this card and all the colors.  I participated in a Team card challenge and this submission was made by a fellow Demonstrator, Mary Ann Rositer.  I love how she lets the Pretty Peacock card base remain as much a part of the focal color as the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  Very nice job.  

PicsArt_08-31-12.42.19

Now, because I only receive a photo of all the card challenge submissions, I do not have the card in front of me.  I am going to take a guess at the basic sizes of what she cut.

  • Pretty Peacock card base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4 on the long side.
  • DSP 3 x 4
  • Gold Foil 3-1/8 x 4-1/8
  • Whisper White for tree, 3-3/4 x 2-1/2
  • Pretty Peacock CS mat, 3-7/8 x 2-3/8
  • then you need Whisper White piece for the words and label die

Here is imagery from Stampin' Up! showing a few more examples.  You can click on the photo to bring up larger.

Black-n-White Peony

Hi there... thanks for stopping by.  I have a surprise combination for you with this card project. 

In the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (aka... holiday catalog as I call it), there is a great product suite called Magic In this Night. You should click on that title and check it out, especially if you love Halloween!  Super cool stuff in that suite. 

For me though, my eyes went right to the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I could see right past the Halloween themes and saw the really pretty black-n-white flowers, stripes, and ornate designs.  So that is what I choose as my background paper.  I love how this card came out!

SAVI Sunday (Stamping & Various Inspirations)

This weeks Savi Sunday (#25) features the Celebration Tidings Bundle, Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper and Black Glitter Paper.  

I love the Celebration Tidings Bundle as it is one of the New bundles in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog that is versatile.  It covers several different holidays which is always a plus in my book.  AND the Celebration Label Dies... I love nesting dies and I love the shape of these!

I think the real eye catcher here though, is the New Black Glitter paper.  Make sure to see it in my SAVI Sunday video below!
