Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop – One Layer Cards

Happy second day of fall!

Got a fall inspired card for Create with Connie and Mary for our Saturday blog hop.

Our theme today is : One Layer Card.

This is a perfect theme to have! One layer cards can be very difficult to create. So, we have some great inspiration for you!

libbystamps, stampin up, Colorful Seasons, Painted Harvest, CCMC, one layer card

I went with the Colorful Seasons stamp set. Both leaves stamp so beautiful together. Being a photopolymer stamp, it makes stamping soo easy! It doesn’t matter which one you start with. Either one works first and stamps perfectly over the other!

The sentiment is from Painted Harvest. It went well with this fall theme card stamped over the solid leaf.

Hard to believe that is only stamped on a single layer! Check out the other the other Design Team members to see what they created – 

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Colorful Seasons, Painted Harvest
  • Card Stock – Very Vanilla
  • Ink – Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzaz, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip
Happy Stampin’

I am Thankful for You

I am thankful that you stopped by today! I have a card I designed for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. Here is our new sketch for the week –

Theme : Fall Fun

I went to play with the Quilt Builder Framelits again! This time, I combined them with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP). They worked so well together –

libbystamps, stampin up, Painted Harvest, Quilt Builder Framelits, Painted Autumn  DSP, TSOT

Isn’t this just so pretty?? I love this!

libbystamps, stampin up, Painted Harvest, Quilt Builder Framelits, Painted Autumn  DSP, TSOT

This trio of pumpkins was cut from one of the sheets of DSP. Actually, the reverse side is this little square pattern! They combined beautifully.

I did flip my design from the sketch because it just worked better with the pumpkins. Sometimes you just have to do that in these layouts.

So. What will you create using our sketch? See what the other Design Team members created on our blog, Try Stampin on Tuesday. Want to link up a card? You can do that on our blog or on our Facebook site as well.

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Painted Harvest
  • Framelits – Quilt Builder
  • Card Stock – Soft Sky,Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango
  • Ink – Early Espresso
  • DSP – Painted Autumn
  • Other – Pool Party Baker’s Twine

Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop – Holiday Catalog

Have we got a fun hop of cards today for our Create with Connie and Mary blog hop!

Our theme is the new Holiday Catalog.

Where do I begin??? This year it’s just FABULOUS!!

A favorite of mine is the Pizza Boxes. They are coated to be food safe, but hold cards equally as well. So that was my starting point for these –

libbystamps, stampin up, Painted Harvest, Merry Cafe, Mini Pizza Boxes, Whisper White 3x3 Envelopes, Everyday Label Punch, CCMC

The Painted Harvest is next on my favorites so far which I combined with the Merry Cafe to create 4 3×3 little cards. Another new thing is 3×3 mini envelopes! (They are under the cards in the picture.)

libbystamps, stampin up, Painted Harvest, Merry Cafe, Mini Pizza Boxes, Whisper White 3x3 Envelopes, Everyday Label Punch, CCMCI used the flower center and a partial leaf to create the little pumpkin here.

libbystamps, stampin up, Painted Harvest, Merry Cafe, Mini Pizza Boxes, Whisper White 3x3 Envelopes, Everyday Label Punch, CCMC

Here, I created the pooling water look with the fern stamp and three inks, Black Memento, Basic Grey and Smokey Slate.

libbystamps, stampin up, Painted Harvest, Merry Cafe, Mini Pizza Boxes, Whisper White 3x3 Envelopes, Everyday Label Punch, CCMC

Thinking out of the box here by using the two acorns pieces, opposite, I created the holiday glasses.

libbystamps, stampin up, Painted Harvest, Merry Cafe, Mini Pizza Boxes, Whisper White 3x3 Envelopes, Everyday Label Punch, CCMCThe wreath here is pretty straight forward. It’s the flower without the stamped centers.

Did you notice the ‘ticket corner’ looking punched corners on all the cards? I used the new Everyday Label Punch to create them. Just insert them from the top of the punch using the edge as a guideline.

We all have our favorites and products we gravitate too. See what the other Design Team members created –

  • Stamp Set – Painted Harvest, Merry Cafe

libbystamps, stampin up, Painted Harvest, Painted Harvest Bundle, Leaf Punch, fall, Holiday 2018 MiniI stamped my flowers in Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango. The leaves are an old favorite, Garden Green.

Joan made a beautiful card using the much sought after Daisy Bundle –

Joan W. Stampin Up

Great use of the colors! And, did you notice all the fussy cutting on the scallops??? WOW! Looks like something I’d do!

Carole created this awesome design –

I love this sunburst technique! I haven’t done it in a while! I love it when I’m inspired by my stampin’ friends!

Love the way Cheryl used the colors –

Cyl Sand, Stampin' Up

I’ll have to ask how she did this. I love the background.

All terrific cards this week!

I wonder what colors will be on for next week?? See you next Friday for Color Challenge 5.
