  1. Score card base at 5 ½”. Adhere DSP to the front flap of the card and to another piece of pretty peacock CS. Add piece of pretty peacock to card front with dimensionals (see picture).
  2. Stamp leaves on whisper white card insert with pretty peacock ink. Color with blends. Adhere to the inside of the card.
  3. Stamp 3 pumpkins in mango Melody CS using pretty peacock ink. Punch. Add little color with blends. Fold each pumpkin in half. Adhere all of the together. Add to the card front with dimensionals.
  4. Cut leaf from pear pizazz CS, punch pumpkin steam from early espresso CS and spring from Copper foil. Adhere to the pumpkin. Add a bow made from linen thread with glue dots. 
  5. Stamp greeting, flag one end and add to the right of the pumpkin.

Floral Essence Thank You

Hello, my stamping friend.
Today I want to share another card made with Floral Essence bundle. Flowers are made from vellum and are very easy to put together.

The design of the card is simple. But I use this layout a lot when need to mass produce:
  • Petal Pink CS: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2"
  • Whisper White: 4 x 4 1/4, scrap for label and leaves
  • Velum: scarp for 2 flowers
  • DSP: 2 x 5 1/4
Tip: after stamping on velum - wait for it to dry before punching or heat-set it.
If you do not own this bundle yet - I strongly recommend.
Happy Stamping!

Team Stamp It Blog Hop

Hello, my stamping friend and thank you for stopping by.
Even so it is hard to think about fall here in Florida right now (still super hot), I am always excited to make fall themed projects. When Holiday catalog comes -I go right back to the end to check new fall items. So today I will be featuring brand new items from upcoming Holiday catalog. It goes live September 4th.
I was a little surprised with the color combo for this year fall projects. It was all coming from the colors of the DSP and they are not very traditional. I just picked the sheet of DSP I really liked and designed around it:

The box is made from full sheet of card stock. Few scores, DSP in from and back, some decorations and all done.
It is actually descent size and fits a lot of goodies (6 x 3 1/4 x 2 ) :
The card is using same dsp and same colors a box. It is easy and great for mass production.
I finally had an opportunity  to play with new in-color.
Then I found some wood tags I had since last Christmas and decided to make tags. This tag looks perfect on a wine bottle (this one is half-bottle).
Leaves were added with tombow glue and pumpkin with dimensionals.

New 'Gather Together' bundle is so much fun. I especially love leaves with detailed embossing.
Let me know what you think. Leave a comment to be entered in prize drawing.
For more great ideas - continue your blog hop:

Happy Stamping!
