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!

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.

Cozy Cable Cap

Sadly, I missed last weeks challenge. But, I’m back this week! Things still need to be put back in order…..but, everyone is safe and there is stampin’ to be done!

Here is our new, inspiring sketch for the week –

This was tricky for me with the half circle. I love the result –

libbystamps, stampin up, Flourishing Phrases, Quilt Builder Framelits, Circles Collection Framelits, Cable Knit Dynamic Textured EF, CCMC

It’s like a little knitted cap with a pretty flower trim! Can be holiday-ish, or maybe not!

Watercooler Wednesday 135 – Judy’s Feminine ‘Anything Goes’ Challenge

Slowly getting back into creating and blogging. Between working a part-time job, helping others with recovery needs, my own moving of stuff and a retired husband home – sometimes hard to find my creative time! I’ll get there. I know.

Good thing about challenges. Commitment. So, I have to create! Works for me!

Today, I got busy for Watercooler Wednesday!

We have our usual round of challenges. Today, it’s hosted by Judy –

These are probably our core in card making! Women love handmade things, especially cards!

I had packed these particular new items up a couple of weeks ago (wow, that long already?!?!) in preparation for Harvey, and, of course misplaced them when I went to put them back!

But, alas, I found what I was looking for and created this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Rose Wonder, Quilt Builder Framelits, WWC, quilt

It’s a new product in Stampin Up’s holiday Holiday mini catalog called the Quilt Builder Framelits! Name is very fitting I’d say! It’s paired with a Christmas set. Clearly these framelits are not exclusively Christmas.

libbystamps, stampin up, Rose Wonder, Quilt Builder Framelits, WWC, quilt

All these colors work nicely too! This is going to be a favorite set of mine I think! It paired well with the Happy Birthday font from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

As a tip if you own this framelit set, as you make your quilt die cuts, save the inside unused quilt pieces for future use! You’ll have enough pieces for a new scrap quilt in no time! 

Alright. Check out the other Design Team cards at Watercooler Wednesday this week. Take time to link up a card too!

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Rose Wonder
  • Framelits – Quilt Builder
  • Card Stock – Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
  • Ink – Black Memento
Happy Stampin’
