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

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Thank you for joining us for this month's Team Blog Hop!

I think I say this each year... Fall is my favorite season!  The fresh, crisp air and beautiful colors.  Funny, even though it means plants, flowers, and trees are losing their foliage and dying out for the year, it is more rejuvenating to me than spring. 

I'm excited to share my fall project with you, which is a creative fold card, featuring the Hello Harvest Bundle and Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper. 

Be sure to read to the end for 2 (two) incredible September deals happening now!

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!

Fall Pumpkins in a Wheelbarrow

Fall pumpkins in a wheelbarrow... reminds me of when I was little. 

My parents would take me and my brother to a pumpkin patch to pick out our very own pumpkin.  It was the highlight of the season, and probably why the fall is my favorite time of the year.  My brother would dash off, running wildly towards the patch.  Mom yelling at him to slow down and wait.  He would always go for the biggest pumpkin he could possibly carry.  He did not care about the color, nicks nor scratches, or if it even had a stem. 

Me on the other hand, the perfectionist (I guess I should have known then) would look and look and look... until I found that perfect shape, that perfect stem arc, and the most perfect orange-colored pumpkin I could find.  It would take me ten times the amount of time, but I wanted the most beautiful pumpkin in the patch.  It was quiet maddening to my brother (tee hee).  

Any ways, this Autumn Goodness Bundle with pumpkins in a wheelbarrow, takes me back to those sweet, childhood memories.  Ones that makes you just smile and chuckle a little.
