Creation Station: Fall Themed Projects!

Creation Station Header-001


Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying the blog hop and getting some good ideas! This round we are featuring fall & harvest themed projects! While I do not yet have any of the fall sets from the new catalog (they are on my list!), I used a couple current sets to make some fall cards. I pulled out the leaves from the set Kinda Eclectic and colored it with Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and Early Espresso markers.  I stamped that on a sheet of Natural Cardstock that was lightly stamped with the set Dictionary. The sentiment is from the set Good Greetings. I just love that font!!

For my next card, I used the feather stamp from the set A Happy Hooray. Clean and simple is my style =) The feathers are stamped in Pool Party, Chocolate Chip and Tangerine Tango.

Stampin’ Up! Feathers



I hope you are having a good weekend so far! My friend came over to stamp yesterday and we make a couple cards. This card was inspired by her! We were just sitting there chatting and she starting designing a card and I started stamping away! Thanks Carrie for your inspiration! We started out with a base of Lost Lagoon (the new in color) and added a layer of Soft Suede. On a layer of Naturals Cardstock, we stamped the feather from the set A Happy Hooray in Lost Lagoon, Old Olive and Soft Suede. A little banner with a sentiment from the new hostess special, Good Greetings, completed the card.



Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great Sunday!

Stampin’ Up! Embossed Handcarved


Well it is finally Friday! I am really loving the new background set that I got called Handcarved. I wanted to create a simple, quick note card. I embossed the stamp with Basic Black embossing powder and added the simple sentiment from the set A Happy Hooray. I love the contrast of the black and the kraft! This card was quick and easy! Thanks for stopping by!


Stampin’ Up A Happy Hooray

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a good weekend so far. The temperature has been near 100 degrees for the past couple of days so what better reason to stay inside and stamp! I have been neglecting my project life cards so I pulled those out and chose a Melon Mambo one. I added this to a base of Kraft card stock. Next I sewed some stitching down the side (crooked on purpose, of course 🙂 ). I had made the little thank you a couple days ago by using white embossing powder on Coastal Cabana card stock. It had been laying on my desk and I thought this was the perfect piece for this card. I added a bit of Smoky Slate ribbon to balance out the card. Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin’ Up! Handcarved


Well, I placed my order for the new holiday catalogs the other day and it came today! So of course, I had to add a couple goodies in there for myself. I love backgrounds…like really love them. It is so easy to create a background and add a simple focal point to make a stunning card. I just got the background stamp Handcarved and had to try it out. For this card, I started out with a base of Kraft cardstock and stamped the Handcarved on a piece of Very Vanilla in Crushed Curry. Next, I added a focal point by using the thanks stamp from the set A Happy Hooray and a bit of Champagne Glimmer paper and some retired ribbon.


In other news, last week we took a day and went to some local shut-ins. It was a beautiful day to explore nature.

Stampin’ Up! High Five Background


There was one stamp set in the new catalog that I found intriguing, but I was kinda on the fence about buying it. It is not quite my usual style, but I liked it so I took a chance and ordered it! The set High Five is cute and has lots of fun elements. Once of my favorites is the hash stripe. I used this stamp on my card and stamped it several times to create a background. Next, I used the thank you for the set A Happy Hooray and added a retired Pool Party button. Of course, the card is backed on the amazing Kraft Cardstock. So what do you think about this set?

The set High Five is $18.95 for clear mount and $26.95 for wood mount.








Stampin’ Up! A Happy Hooray


I have a card to share with you today. This is another card that we made at our last stampin’ night. It features the new kraft cardstock as the base. The new triangles embossing folder was used on a piece of Pool Party cardstock. The stamps are from the new set called A Happy Hooray. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stampin’ Up! A Happy Hooray

Hello and happy Saturday!

Hope you are having a good day so far. I got a chance to stamp a bit last night and I played with a new set from the catalog called A Happy Hooray. I love the geometric shapes and the font and who doesn’t need a feather =) I started out with a base of the new Kraft it! I embossed a piece of retired Summer Starfruit with the Triangles embossing folder. Next, I used the flower from the same set and embossed it with white on a piece of Coastal Cabana. The sentiment was stamped in Calypso Coral and finally I added a piece of Smoky Slate ribbon. Thanks for stopping by!

First Card of the New Catalog!!


Tonight is a good night! I got my first stampin’ order from the new catalog!! I created a clean and simple card using a some new products. I first started with a base of the NEW KRAFT CARDSTOCK! I know it is just paper, but I looooove it! I have been waiting forever for this and it is fabulous! I stamped the sun burst image from the set Kinda Eclectic in Crumb Cake ink and added a Blackberry Bliss banner. This color is to die for! It is so rich and pairs nicely with so many colors. I stamped the Thank You from the set A Happy Hooray in Basic Gray and punched it out with the 1 and 3/8 inches circle punch. Finally, I added a Blackberry Bliss ribbon. The ribbon is luxurious and so easy to tie!
