Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Canadians and Happy Monday to everyone else! Today I am sharing a Thanksgiving card using Stampin' Up!'s Daisy Lane Country Home stamp sets as well as Stampin' Up!'s two Daisy Punches.





Also, I am excited to be joining in for my first blog hop with Kylie Bertucci and the business demonstrators training team. This is is a phenomenal group of dedicated stampers who love sharing stamping with the world. I am excited to see all their great creations this month.





I put together today's project to make for a coffee & a card morning that I ran at our local Legion here in Aurora.





Daisy Lane / Country Home Handstamped Card<br/>




How To:





To make the 3D punch art flower, stamp 3 large flowers (from Stampin' Up!'s Daisy Lane stamp set in mango melody ink on mango melody card stock. Repeat this with 3 small flowers and punched them out using the coordinating Stampin' Up! Daisy punches. Gently curl the petals using a bone folder.





Punch the center pieces from early espresso and basic black card stock using the 1- 1/8" scalloped circle punch and 1/2" circle punch. Glue all the flower pieces together as per picture and set aside to dry. Make sure to spread your petals out so you can see each layer.





While the flower is drying, stamp the background image (from Stampin' Up!'s County Home stamp set) on a piece of 5.5 x 3" whisper white card stock. Use Crumb Cake ink and stamp off on scrap paper each time to get a lighter shade. I stamped three times on one side and flipped the paper and stamped three times on the opposite side. Don't worry if the images overlap in the middle, this will be covered.





Cut a DSP strip to 5.5 x 2" ( I used a strip from Stampin' Up!'s Woven Threads Designer Series Paper) and adhere to middle of stamped Whisper White piece.





Stamp the "Happy Harvest Blessings" sentiment in Memento Black ink on 4" x 1" strip of whisper white card stock. Punch the end of the strip with the Triple banner punch. Adhere to DSP piece.





Adhere white stamped layer to crumb cake card base (8" x 5.5" and folded in half so finished card measures 4" x 5.5").





Now that the flower is dry...use the piercing end of Stampin' Up's Take Your Pick Pool to poke hole in centre of the flower. Insert your choice of brad from Stampin' Up!'s Metallic brad assortment then adhere o card from using adhesive dots.

Happy Stamping!

Today's project is a design team card I created for Inspire.Create. Challenge #53. This challenge is a sketch challenge. My Deck The Halls card is made with the same stamp set (Stampin' Up's Christmas Gleaming) as my last project which you can see here, and as you can tell they are two VERY different cards.





Here is the sketch for this week's challenge:









...and here is my card...





deck the halls christmas card<br/>brightly gleaming<br/>christmas gleaming




The card is 4" x 5.5" and the Brightly Gleaming DSP is cut to 3.5" x 5.5". I added strips of cherry cobbler card stock on either side of the DSP.





deck the halls christmas card<br/>brightly gleaming<br/>christmas gleaming




The holly was stamped in Celestial Copper Ink and coloured in with Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends. I added glue with the fine tip glue pen to give the berries dimension and shine.





I hope you are inspired by this weeks challenge. Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's creations and submit a project of your own!





Happy Stamping.









All the supplies used for this card can be purchased through my online shop.







Christmas Gleaming! The 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue is out for 2 weeks and I am starting to shift from Thanksgiving projects to Christmas ones. This inspire. create challenge seemed like the perfect time to make my first official Christmas Card of the season.





This week's challenge is a colour challenge!









The colours are not typical Christmas colours but I like atypical cards. I used the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and punch bundle to create this card. This set just screams heat embossing and watercolor to me.









The ornaments were heat embossed in silver and watercoloured before being punched out and popped up with dimensionals on the watercolour background.









Hot Tip for solid background sentiments: After stamping and fussy cutting use a Stampin' Write Marker and run in around the edges to hide the white edges and make it pop just a little more.





I hope this card gives you a little end of summer Christmas spirit! Be sure to check out the other inspiring cards by the rest of our design team and submit your own.





Happy Crafting!









All products used in the project can be purchased through my online store.







We're back with another inspire.create challenge! This week's challenge is a theme challenge!









For my project I chose to make a card using Stampin' Up's To A Wild Rose and Notes of Kindness stamp sets. I opted for a monochrome black, grey and white scheme for the with sympathy theme.













The sentiment is heat embossed in black and I used a blender pen on the stamped rose to give more dimension to the flower.





This card also uses Come Sail Away Designer series paper and Stampin' Up!;s Tufted embossing folder





Be sure to check out the other With Sympathy cards from our design team and submit one of your own!





I'm seeing a pattern in my choice card layout for the To A Wild Rose stamp set. You can see a Thank You card I made with this set here





Happy Stamping!
