DOStamper STARs Thursday Challenge #256 - Painted Autumn Wreath Color Challenge

Hello and welcome to this week's DOStamper Stars Thursday "Color My World Challenge" #255 featuring Real Red, Garden Green and Whisper White (my choice) colors.  Terrific colors for traditional Christmas cards.  If you have been reading this blog, you know I love to make cards with these great colors. I chose the Painted Harvest stamp set to create the wreath background. I stamped the wreaths Garden Green and Always Artichoke inks.  Used Real Red ink for berries along with a bit of Wink of Stella.

 
 
Card Measurements:
 Garden Green Card Base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Real Red Layer 5 3/8 4 1/8
Whisper White Layer  4 1/4 x 4
Real Red, Silver Foil and Garden Green Scraps

TIP: I used the Painted Harvest stamps set to stamp the larger flower in Garden Green and then stamped over twice with smaller flower using Always Artichoke.  The flower in the stamp set makes a great wreath.  Pinterest has great samples.

Sunday Card Share - Father Christmas

I am back to regular posting.  My friend has enough baskets made for the annual craft fair hosted by the Sheppard Air Force Base Spouses.   I hope to post a few pictures of her baskets once we get them set up to sell on the 11th.  For this Sunday's card share I am featuring the Father Christmas stamp set in the annual catalog. Here are three cards I received made with that set.  So beautiful.


 
 
 
This is a timeless classic set for those who have a place in their heart for traditions of Christmas past.
It pairs well with many of Stampin Up's Textured Impressions Embossing Folders such as Holly, Brick Wall, Pinewood Planks and Quilt Top.  Stamp the images with Basic Black Archival Quality ink and color them with our new Stampin Blends, available now.   How exciting!!

Christmas Count Down Week 5 - Merry Little Labels & Colorful Seasons

For this week's Count Down to Christmas I am featuring Colorful Seasons and Merry Little Labels stamp sets.  To create the background I used crumpled tissue paper to apply the Pool Party and Soft Sky ink to the Whisper White card stock. Then I stamped some of the Colorful Seasons snowflakes in Marina Mist. Makes me yearn for cooler weather, we have had a bit of heat wave here in North Texas, predicted to hit 90 on Sunday, 5 November. 


 
Card Measurements:
 Marina Mist Card Base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Whisper White Layer 4 1/4 x 3 3/4
Silver Foil Strips x 4 1/4 x 3/4
 

Tip:  I consider the Silver Foil paper a very precious consumable.  To conserve my stock of Silver Foil paper I only used strips of 4 1/4 x 3/4 to accent my focal point.  Saving paper for other projects.

I lingered (actually procrastinated) for months watching everyone create beautiful, fabulous, stunning, cards with the Colorful Seasons stamps. I finally purchased the bundle for myself and I am so glad I did. This is a set I will use for a years.  Come on and join in  on the wonderful Colorful Seasons journey and add the Colorful Seasons bundle to your shopping card.  Look forward to seeing your creations.


The Colorful Seasons Bundle has you ready for all four seasons.  Leaves for the Fall, Flowers for Spring, Lawn Chair for Summer and Snow Flakes for the blue days of Winter.  I know you will love it as much as I do.
