Fall Inspired Boxes for Card Classes

These are sweet boxes for my guest to carry their cards home
from card classes this week. 
I used some retired card stock and designer series paper from last fall.
I also used some retired gold stitched ribbon.
These are from 
She designed these boxes to hold emboss folders or some dies.
I used a piece of 8 1/4" x 11" piece of card stock
scored on long side at 5 1/4" and 7"
and score on short side at 1 3/4" and 6 1/2".  Cut the flaps and 
it is easy to assemble!

Hope you enjoy your Thursday!

FabFri121 Thank You Deer!

I have designed from the sketch a thank you card 
for a special (male) friend.  
This is my first card with the Merry Patterns set 
which you can earn for free until the end of October 
with a 300.00 order. 
I started with the lovely Christmas Around the World DSP--love this plaid!
I saw gold in it so used gold emboss powder for my Merry Patterns deer.
I heat embossed the deer and snipped him out.
 Not a great fussy cut job but works.
I added him onto a white circle and then a gold foil scallop circle.
I looked through lots of thank you stamps and settles on this one 
and the matching punch.  This thank you 
sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners with a matching banner
stamp to the punch.  The punch is the Duet Banner punch.
All this was layered on a Basic Black base and I love how it turned out!

Hope you can play along this week with the sketch challenge over at 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Wednesday!

TTTC015 Thankful Sunflowers II

I went with the middle row across-Floral, Yellow, Punch.
Floral and Yellow sunflowers (actually two yellows) and leaf punch. 

I did stamp the sunflowers and leaves on a piece 
of Very Vanilla and attached to a piece of Garden Green and then 
another piece of Very Vanilla for the base.  
Actually, a piece of thick Very Vanilla which is more sturdy.
The sunflowers are in Daffodil Delight then Crushed Curry on top.
I stamped the centers with Soft Suede and the the leaves with Garden Green.
I stamped the leaves punched out in Garden Green and Soft Suede on Very Vanilla.
I added them behind my sentiment and burlap ribbon.

Play it today:

PP362 A Grateful Door

Harvest Time means decor!  I love the decorate my house for fall 
because I collect PUMPKINS!  I actually have more than I can count.
I look for unusual ones esp colors and textures.  
I pull it all out Labor Day weekend and it is my fav season!

I love this last card for my classes this week because it 
creates a lovely decor scene.  The set is called At Home With You. 
I stamped the sign, the lantern and the florals with pumpkins 
in Memento Tuxedo Black 
on Whisper White and they were cut with matching dies.
The lantern and florals were colored with markers- Old Olive,
Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede Sahara Sand.
The sign's sentiment is in Pumpkin Pie.
I stamped the door plus door hanger in black on Soft Suede.
I cut a small piece of Crush Curry togo behind the door for "lights".
I layered all this on a piece of Sahara Sand embossed with the 
Pinewood Planks emboss folder and then layered on a piece 
of Basic Black for the base.
Head over to play along with

Baby Wipe Technique Leaves

Yes, the baby wipe technique!  This is my fourth card for class.
 I used a baby wipe to drop 
three colors of re inker on to make a stamp pad for my leaves.
I used the leaves from Colorful Seasons stamp set ans the matching dies
for my copper foil ones.
I dropped Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango and stamped several leaves.
 I added some paint splatter with the stamp from Timeless Textures. 
The sentiment from Colorful Seasons works great in Fresh Fig. 
Since I added the cooper leaves I decided to add the copper trim to
finish it off. 
The white background was layered on Crushed Curry and then a Fresh fig base.
Happy Fall and Happy Sunday!

Pick A Bunch Of Pumpkins

Just love this card with the pumpkins and the DSP. 
Love the Pick a Pumpkin bundle.
I like the Brick Wall emboss folder but several others would also look awesome. 
I stamped in three orange shades. Pumpkin Pie on the tall one and the littlest. 
 Tangerine Tango on the short one on right and Cajun Craze on the 
textured one.
I stamped in Lemon Lime Twist for the leaf 
plus one cut with the same color card stock. 
 All these are cut with the matching dies called Pattern Pumpkins.
I layered them on a piece of Very Vanilla Stitched Shapes Square.
I used the Tangerine Tango for the background with the 
Brick Wall emboss folder plus some Painted Autumn DSP and 
natural trim in gold to finish it off. 
I really liked it without a sentiment but this card is for class so 
I can offer some for those who want one on the front 
or to stamp inside.

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Thankful Sunflowers

I cased this card from Jenny Hall at
I loved the layout and the leaves behind.
This is my second card for classes next week.
I used the Layering Square dies for the Soft Suede scallop and the 
Very Vanilla square.
I stamped Daffodil Delight and Curry curry with Soft Suede for the flowers.
I added some leaves in Old Olive and stamped the sentiment from the same set
called Painted Harvest in Suede.
I added some Burlap ribbon on the thick Very Vanilla base
before layering the squares.  I stamped off once with the solid
leaf in the set and then full on with the same color Old Olive
for the detailed leaf.  I used the matching leaf punch.
Finished it off with some gold sequin.
 Might offer some of the mini gold sequin in class.  
Hope you enjoy your day and have a lovely weekend!
