Hello Fall Wonderous Wreath

Today is a very cute card I would like to share with you.  The card uses the Wonderous Wreath stamp set and framelits.  There are three different stamps for the wreath.  Each stamp has a tab at the top of the stamp to help you line up each stamped image after that.  There are also tabs on the top of the wreath framelits to help you line them up with the stamped image before you die cut it in your Big Shot.  I've added gold speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to add some sparkle to the card.  The details to make this card are below!  Hope you enjoy making this beautiful fall card!  You can order the stamp sets and more though my Stampin' Up! website
Happy Stamping!

Mingle All the Way Punch Turkey

Happy November!  Today, I want to show you a couple of very cute and easy punch ideas we did at Juliet's first demonstrator workshop!  The cute turkey uses the Curvy Keepsake Box and would be a perfect choice to add to your table scape for Thanksgiving.  Juliet suggested that you could use these little treat turkey boxes as place names for each of your Thanksgiving family members and guests.  Just swap out the sentiment for their name.  How cute is that!! 

Here is a list of punched items you will need. 
     2 1/2" Scalloped circle
     1 3/8" circle
     Oval punch
     Owl Punch
     Decorative Label

Fall Stamp Camp 2014

My downline and I get together every quarter to put on a Stamp Camp. Everyone contributes time, materials, and ideas. Silvia designed the Wonderous Wreath Card, and Monica, a sideline, designed the Snowflake card. The Autumn door hanger was cased and simplified from one found on Pinterest. We get our ideas from many different places!

Elysse and Athena collaborated on the For All Things card. Here are the instructions for this beautiful card.

For All Things Card:

• Take the three small rectangular pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamp leaves and acorns on them using stamps and inks. The larger leaf uses the Old Olive ink. The smaller leaves use the Cajun Craze ink. The acorns use the Crushed Curry ink. Stamp speckles on these pieces using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp and Elegant Eggplant ink. Separate and back with your Basic Black cardstock. On the top panel, punch a hole using the hole punch.
• Take your Linen thread and wrap around your fingers to make a loop. Secure with a mini glue dot. Fold in half to make a figure 8. Add the Brad around the Autumn Element and the Linen thread and add to the top panel where the hole is. Secure on the back and add your candy dot on top of the brad. Add your two candy dots.

• Take the larger piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and emboss it using the Hardwood Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. Layer onto your folded card base. Add the stamped panels using dimensionals.

• Stamp “Hello Fall” using Elegant Eggplant ink on the scrap of cardstock. Punch out using the Ticket Duo Punch. Also, punch out one ticket from the Elegant Eggplant cardstock. Layer together and add to the bottom panel using dimensionals.

• Complete the inside and you are done! 
Our customers had a blast and we did too!
