I love DASHER for so many reasons. He has nice, clean, simple lines and the lil' guy is only $8.95! This is another card that I used at my holiday stamp-a-stack. It was a huge hit as it only took a few minutes and really made a beautiful impact. Do you love DASHER as much as I do? You can order this happy guy on my ONLINE BOUTIQUE.
I LOVE this new hostess set from the HOLIDAY MINI CATALOG! You can earn this stamp set by placing a $150 (or more) order! I saw a card similar to this one on www.splitcoaststampers.com and thought it was so simple and elegant. I tweaked it and used it as one of my four cards for my recent Stamp-a-Stack Class!

I tied a sweet little bow and wrapped it around CHOCOLATE CHIP cardstock and our new AUTUMN MEADOWS DESIGNER SERIES PAPER.
Popped the stamped image on TAKEN WITH TEAL cardstock and added a chocolate chip corduroy button...a bit of twine and it's done!
I hope you loved this quick and simple Autumn Card...I would love to hear your comments! Labels: Big Shot, Fall Cards, Founder's Circle, Heidi Davenport, simple cards, Simply Thanks, Top 100 Demonstrators, Top Note
I cut the VERY VANILLA cardstock a bit smaller than normal so that I could mount it on SOFT SUEDE cardstock. I stamped thanks with a stamp that I tend to grab for an elegant thank you card.
I cut this last little leaf and mounted with using dimensionals. I like how Barbara added that one little leaf to give the card some dimension and extra texture.
I love cutting out little things so cutting around the leaves was really fun for me! I love the simple elegance of this design!
I added some sparkly gold ribbon from my stash. I wanted a monochromatic look for this card. This makes the design all about those beautiful leaves!
I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I do! Shout out to Barbara for her gorgeous card and for sharing with the crafting community! Labels: Autumn Splendor, Gold Embossing, Heidi Davenport, New York City, Splitcoast Stampers, Stampin' Up
First, I ran BASHFUL BLUE through my BIG SHOT using one of the Stampin' Up! Texturz Plates. I wanted very simple swirls for the front of the card. I like doing a pretty simple card front when the inside of the card pops a lot of punch.
The inside can be made by punching out a few circles, here I used five circles in RICH RAZZLEBERRY. You then cut them into swirls--I teach second grade so I we call this type of cutting "snakes".
Then, glue the tail of the snake into the card. Put some adhesive on the other end of the snake (make sure it is coiled inside of your card). Then, close the card. This will make the "snake" stick from the top and the bottom of the card.
I used Serene Snowflakes and stamped them in Silver Pigment Ink and cleared embossed them. The snowflake for the front seemed perfect with a clear crystal brad in the center.
The other smaller snowflakes were for the inside of the card! FUN!
This is the front of the card--you might have noticed the sparkle on the blue cardstock. I made my own glimmer mist using water, reinker and a bit of the new Stampin' Up! Shimmer Paint. Shake it up and spray! Labels: Gotham City Stampers, holiday cards, Holiday Mini Catalog, meetup, New York City, pop up cards, Serene Snowflakes, Stampin' Up
I love the simple lines of the leaves in this set. AUTUMN SPLENDOR combines so nicely with AUTUMN DAYS--almost like they were made to go together! The leaves are from AUTUMN SPLENDOR, the acorn if from AUTUMN DAYS. Beautiful together!
This is a quick picture of the setup of this card! If you follow the steps on Splitcoast Stampers, you will be able to make this card, too! Don't be intimidated by the directions/steps--try one and you will be hooked!
I wanted to add CORDUROY BUTTONS and the colors that I have just didn't seem to work. It is really easy to dye the KRAFT BUTTONS to any color that you want using our Stampin' Up! reinkers! A little squirt on the button and VOILA--Dusty Durango!
Here is the finished card--well, almost...at the point that I took this picture, the buttons were still trying. BUT, you get the idea! I promise to post the actual finished card SOON! I hope you enjoy this! (Don't you wish you could pull that ribbon and make the waterfall trickle in front of your eyes?)
