Holidays Paper Crafting Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Christmas projects. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Ginger Rabesa’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The Christmas Pines stamp set and coordinating Pretty Pines framelits have finally arrived in my house. I thought my sister Tricia purchased them when they were introduced with the bundle pricing. We would discuss getting the products several times this year until I finally wanted to use them. I asked if I could borrow them and she said she did not get them. So off I went to purchase them with my demonstrator discount. That really helps stretch the paper crafting dollars.

I am so happy with this card. It’s made festive with the pine cone and sprig embellishments cut using the Pretty Pines framelits. The Wood Crate framelits make cutting a wooden crate easy. The decorated crate is my favorite part of this greeting card.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Falling for Leaves

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring fall themed projects. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sue Boerner’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to reach into the piece stash to create a quick greeting card. The Detailed Leaves die cut and the negative around it are from the stash. When I first cut a leaf a few weeks ago from this piece of Nature’s Poem patterned paper, I discarded it because the colors were too bright. But upon looking at the colors today, these colors match the leaves that are outside of house right now. So the color combo was appealing for the design session today.

I highlighted the striped brown tones by backing the focal point on early espresso cardstock and stamping with early espresso ink.

I next highlighted the orange tones by grabbing the negative of a leaf die cut from a different patterned paper. This was backed with grapefruit grove cardstock and accented with grapefruit grove ribbon.
