Thanks a Latte

The Stampin' Up! year is coming to a close, and I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting me and helping me achieve my biggest goal this year! You are amazing! 

I grabbed this card sample from Stampin' Up! It's perfect for today's post. Not only does it express-o lol how I feel, it's a great card to demonstrate how to use Designer Series Paper (dsp) on a card, and features the Coffee Cafe stamp set. I say this, because starting on Sunday, October 1 through October 15, we are having a Sale! Select dsp will be Buy 3 Get One Free, and Select Coordinating Stamp Sets and Note Cards & Envelopes will be 15% off! Fast Fuse will also be Get 2 Free Refills with purchase! This is an amazing sale. The dsp will continue to be on sale through the end of October.

This would be a great time to gather with friends and do a paper share. You could each then have a sampling of 4 (or more!) different packs of dsp to get creative with. So many possibilities!

We will be using some of the Designer Series Papers that are included in the sale in my Quick & Cute class on Monday, October 2. I still have a couple of seats. You can see all my classes and events on my website, and rsvp from there, if you'd like to join us!

All of the details of this incredible sale will post to my website on Sunday, October 1.

If you have any questions, please contact me. I will be happy to help.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

Sheltering Tree

I love how you can pull stamp sets from the Annual Catalog and create projects for so many different occasions. I created this Fall themed card using nothing really fall related.

Choosing fall colors, really made this card come together. I used Crushed Curry for the base, a layer of Early Espresso, and a layer of Crumb Cake, stamped with the Burlap Background. I cut the Oak Leaf image out of the Crumb Cake layer, cut another one from Cajun Craze, and embossed it with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

I stamped the tree from Sheltering Tree with Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla, and positioned it to show through the leaf cut-out. Tied some Linen Thread around the leaf, and adhered it with Dimensionals. I finished my card by adding the sentiment from Sheltering Tree.

If you like this card, and would like to learn how to make it, we'll be making it in my next Quick & Cute Class on Monday, October 2nd. Visit my website to sign up and see all the details for all my classes and events.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
