I had another fun filled day at The Ink Pad yesterday with Anna and Jane. I made some samples and helped out with a custom stamp. I really do enjoy spending time there, such great store and such nice people! When I got home I had a ham sandwich for dinner and then puttered around in the Stampin’ Galley for a bit. Its supposed to rain today so I’m going to go over and see Renee for a bit. The products for this month’s card class have come in so I need to start making samples and getting ready for that! I also have some errands to run and lots of organizing to do. Should be another busy day!
The winners were announced for last week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge yesterday. What an amazing collection of cards we had in the gallery last week! I want to personally thank all that participated, your cards were awesome! With that said it’s time for this week’s challenge…
This week we ask you to make a fall themed project! It can be a card, a tag, gift box, place card… anything that you want! I decided on a pack of cards. The bases are Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Early Espresso with the We R Memory Keepers Woodgrain Embossing Folders, there are two in the pack, one that is woodgrain and another has trees. Next up is a piece of Vellum that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Thanks Card Die. My leaves are cut from some My Colors Bronze and The Paper Cut White Gold Curious Metallic using the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Leaves. I adhered them to the Vellum with Foam Tape and then used Score Tape hidden behind the leaves to adhere the Vellum to the card. For a little sparkle I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Bronze and Ellen Hutson Iridescent Ivory Sequins. I think that four cards and envelopes given to someone that you are going to see for Thanksgiving would make a nice little gift, don’t you? I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Pay a visit to the blog and check out what the rest of my Team has come up with to inspire you! We can’t wait to see your projects in the gallery! Thank you for stopping by today! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Nice card, Justin. I love the stitched leaves. It’s a great fall card. Have a great day!
Thank you HJ! The stitched leaves are s cool! Hope that you enjoyed your day too! 🙂
Oh Yes! I love this card. Looks great! I’ll take 15! Ha. Ha.
LOL! They were actually quick and simple to make Nancy! 🙂
Very nice cards. I like the cut on the vellum. I would have never thought to do that!
Thank Emily! I think that Vellum is overlooked! I love it! 🙂
Love the card and what a great hostess gift! Hmm, we have been invited out for Thanksgiving and maybe I should make up a set of cards for the hostess. Good idea, I never thought of that. And, of course, since I love fall I love the colors on this card and that embossing folder looks like it is very interesting. Have fun at the shop today, I can’t think of a better way to spend this sun shiny but cold Tuesday.
The hubs shares everything with me as I do with him. I wish he had kept this sore throat, chills, headachy thing to himself though. I really don’t have time to be sick this close to the holidays. Meanwhile, I’m going back to bed……………….Love and hugs, XO 🙂
Thanks so much! Yes, a set of Thank You cards is fun gift and useful too! The EF is neat and since you get two in a pack it makes it even better! I had a nice time with Renee, always do!
Oh, I’m sorry to hear that Hubby shared his cold! He can be selfish with things like that! LOL! Speedy get well wishes to you! XOXO 🙂
these are great! Love the layout, that bronze paper is so rich.
Thank you Linda! I love metallic papers, especially the bronze! 🙂
