Today’s project features the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. I wanted to show the paper in a non-Halloween way since not everyone celebrates Halloween. I used the striped and pumpkin patterns in the paper.

Here is a photo of the papers:

Since I know you are going to ask, inside the box are three Ghirardelli chocolates in the new Fall assortment. I put the Pumpkin Spice Caramel in the front since that was my theme for this project.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Swap Card

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest
Happy Thursday! Today’s project is a card I made for a swap with a training group I’m in. They have swaps for every new Stampin’ Up! catalog and it is always fun to participate since I get a bunch of creative ideas from demonstrators across the country.

I used the Painted Harvest stamp set for my card and the coordinating Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. It’s been a hard transition to Fall since it is in the 80’s here this week. Not that I am complaining at all. I am planning to pick up a mum and pumpkin this weekend along with fresh apple cider and apple cider donuts. Yum! Here is a photo of the stamp set which I am loving for Fall projects.


Measurements for my card:
Early Espresso card base: 5.5" by 8.5" scored in half at 4 1/4"
Very Vanilla layer: 4” by 5 ¼”
Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper: 2" by 5"

Do you have a long wish list of stamping products? For just $99 plus tax if applicable you can join my stamping team by purchasing a starter kit. The starter kit includes $125 of products from either of our current catalogs. I welcome hobbyists just looking to earn a discount on amazing stamping products. Let me know if you would like more information.

I had fun creating this card. Many years ago I went on a girls weekend trip to Montreal with my sister and friends. We went window shopping in the mall and took photos of us trying on crazy hats. That memory was the inspiration for today’s card. Where do you get your inspiration for projects?

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas for Fall

Stampin Up Watercolor Christmas
Stampin Up Watercolor Christmas
Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great week. I am plugging along trying to keep my head above water at work. After a relaxing long weekend it has been a whirlwind in the office the past few days. Everyone is back from summer vacations and I am finding myself swamped with a short work week. Eek! So today’s card was an easy peasy idea since I can’t think clearly right now.

I cased myself! Have you done this before? I took my card I created on Tuesday and changed the colors and sentiment. I have to say over the past week it is starting to feel like Fall (cooler nights) and if you happen to go shopping all the stores are Fall themed. I am never ready for it, but always enjoy the season by the official first day of Autumn on the calendar. I used the Watercolor Christmas stamp set for my card. Yes that is right I used a “Christmas” stamp set for Fall.
Place an order over $25 in my Online Store in the month of September using hostess code: UVETVS3R and you will get a thank you package in the mail from me with 5 handmade cards as a thank you.
