I have been working on a brand-new website that merges both my card gallery site and a blog. It is now finally ready. If you are a follower to this blog, please check out my new website - www.stampwithjane.com
This space will remain, but I will no longer be posting on this site.
Thanks to all of you who have visited and enjoyed this site.
Although the weather in Wisconsin isn't cooperating, it is time to start posting fall projects. Fall is probably my favorite time of year - the changing colors of the trees and the crunch of leaves underfoot.
Branch Out is one of our dormant stamp sets. I love the tree all by itself. Here is one of the cards I recently made with this set.
The tree is embossed with Gold Glory EP. I have had the clear buttons for years, but I just don't seem to grab them when finishing a project. I need to use them more often!
Pretty soon my blog will be filled with Fall and Halloween samples and ideas...but I can't let go of summer quite yet!
One of the Stampin' Up! colors I find difficult to use in my stamping is Orchid Opulence. It just isn't one of my favorites. However, a customer of mine needed help using the color right before the new catalog came out...thank goodness for Stampin' Up! coming to my rescue! The new Cottage Wall DSP uses Orchid Opulence with Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry (secondary colors might include Pale Plum and Mellow Moss).
When I was prepping for my New Catalog Stamp Camp, I also wanted to find a way to use the adorable new Butterfly Punch. This example also uses the Hi Embosslit (used with the Big Shot).
Here is another version using the new Modern Label Punch:
I punched out different pieces of the Cottage Wall DSP and colored pieces of card stock. The punched butterfly pieces are just attached the the lower punched piece with the small silver brads. You can fold the dsp punch piece to give the butterfly more dimension.
Summer...we'll miss you!
This is my September Card Kit Card! If you would like to purchase the September Card Kit, you need to contact me by September 15th. The cost of the card kit is $15.00. The card kit will be available for pickup/mailing on October 1st. Payment can be made through Paypal or by checks/cash for my local customers.
Each kit will provide all the supplies to create 12 cards including the pre-cut card stock, embellishments, envelopes, and instructions. The phase used on this card is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, one of the new stamp sets from the 2009-2010 Stampin’ Up!® Idea Book & Catalog. However, you can substitute another phrase if you wish. This is a great fall-themed card – it can work for a general occasion, Halloween, or Thanksgiving card!
My September Card Kit also features Stampin’ Up!®’s wonderful punches. The five punches you should have for this kit are the large oval punch, the 1" circle punch, the 3/4" circle punch, the Modern Label punch, and the Word Window punch. If you don’t have the Modern Label or Word Window punches, you could easily adapt the card with different phrase/punch pieces. You will also need a Pumpkin Pie ink pad, hole piercing tool, sponge, and Stampin’ Dimensionals or excess rubber pieces.
Why do I create card kits? I LOVE having my customers come to my home for stamp camps and events, but I know there are several stampers out there who just can’t make it to my events. This is an easy way for them to keep their creative juices flowing and their card stash filled. These card kits are also great for my stampers who love to create cards, but don’t always enjoy planning out and cutting out their cards.
