Hello Fall in Creative Colors

Ah…..almost the weekend! But, time to share a card designed for Create with Connie and Mary and our new color challenge this week –

love, Love, LOVE these colors together. Sometimes you don’t see how well they work together until you pull them out and just look at them together!

I wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to go in. But, after I saw the new stamp sets I had – I knew.

Those who know me, know I LOVE pumpkins (and fall and the fall colors). So it was a natural to choose this set –

libbystamps, stampin up, Pick a Pumpkin, Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits, Pick a Pumpkin Bundle, Merry Cafe, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, CCMCIsn’t this awesome? Not the typical fall colors, but it has pumpkins!

libbystamps, stampin up, Pick a Pumpkin, Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits, Pick a Pumpkin Bundle, Merry Cafe, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, CCMCI used the new Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits (both will be available September 1st). I stamped the pumpkins and the background leaf images from the set.

The sentiment is also from a new set, Merry Cafe. It’s soooo cute and coordinates with the Coffee Cups Framelits. I did mask it off to get just the ‘Hello FALL’, which I punched twice (to shorten) with the Classic Label Punch.

I am looking forward to cooler temperatures and lowered humidity with fall. Texas can be brutal at least half the year!

Kewpie Girl, Let’s Celebrate Your Day

Yes, the title is funny!!! But, wait until you see the card!

I designed this for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday today. We have a new bi-weekly sketch, #335, that just came out today –

I love these simple sketches!

I pulled out the Birthday Memories DSP (Designer Series Paper)……

libbystamps, stampin up, Birthday Delivery, Birthday Memories Suite, Birthday Delivery Bundle, Birthday Friends Framelits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, TSOT

I added a strip of DSP from the Fresh Florals pack and a hint of the scallops punched from the Decorative Ribbon Border.

We Create August Blog Hop

Happy August! Yes, August. Already! That means blog hop time! Second one of the day. We Create this time around!

Lol, ‘we create’ a card then ‘step it up’ or ‘step it over’.

I guess this month I decided to ‘step it over’. Here is the first card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, Fresh Florals DSP, We CreateThis card is pretty. However, change the base…..

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, Fresh Florals DSP, We CreateIsn’t this a pop of color now?

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, Fresh Florals DSP, We Create

Compare the two. Both cards use all the same elements and colors. What a difference the card base makes!

I’d love to read your thoughts on the two cards. Leave a comment before going onto the talented Kris Kilkenny – we all love to read your comments! 

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Happy Birthday Gorgeous
  • Framelits – Detailed Dragonfly
  • Card Stock – Whisper White, Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist

Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop – Favorite Pink

Saturday. Weekend. Create with Connie and Mary.

Time for a wonderful blog hop filled with lots of inspiration!

sp15sathopwelcome

Out theme this week is favorite shade of PINK!

Once again, a difficult one because there are soo many pretty shades that Stampin’ Up has! And the new one – Powder Pink – it’s just lovely!

I’ll go with a classic. Melon Mambo.

I also went with a lovely hostess stamp set, Tranquil Tulips –

libbystamps, stampin up, Tranquil Tulips, Lovely Words Thinlits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, CCMC

….and, the new Decorative Ribbon Border Punch in Vellum Card Stock. It makes a nice border that either side can be used. I went the smaller, delicate scallops.

I stamped all the tulips and fussy cut each one of them. When I adhered them to the card front, some were flat. Some were raised. Gives a little depth!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tranquil Tulips, Lovely Words Thinlits, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, CCMC

The sentiment, hugs, is a new thinlits too, Lovely Words. I’ve used it a lot. It’s a favorite of mine! I removed it from its border to use it freely here.

This is a really pretty card. The stamp set. A must have too!

See what the other Design Team members’ favorite ‘pink’ is by hopping along out blog hop.
