Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Foliage

Have you seen the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Foliage dies?  They are great!  I used one of the dies to create the pumpkin on my card share for today.  This card is for a Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers to create a “grateful” card.

I used this technique to create a panel from which I die cut the pumpkin and sentiment.

John 14:9

“Jesus answered [Philip]:  “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time?  Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.  How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?”.”

Autumn Splendor

Autumn Splendor

Are you having a wonderful fall season?  Fall, also known as autumn, is the time of the year that the season changes from summer to winter in the Northern Hemisphere.  The deciduous trees’ leaves turn into awesome colors before falling from the trees.  Then there is the wonderful task we all love to hate; raking the leaves.

I hope that you are experiencing the typical autumn with the awesome array of colors.  I live in Florida where the official memo announcing autumn never arrives.  I miss the wonderful season, and I try to enjoy it through crafting.  My card share today is one reflecting autumn splendor.

Hebrews 13:15

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise —the fruit of lips that confess his name.”

This week’s color challenge on Splitcoaststampers was to create using Stampin’ Up! (SU) colors of Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Cherry Cobbler.  I submitted this card for the challenge. Continue reading

Polished Stone Technique With a Twist

Polished Stone Technique With A Twist

I have for you today a card I made using the Polished Stone Technique with a twist!  The method used for this card is easier and faster than the normal Polish Stone Technique.  You can view this POST for instructions on the normal Polish Stone Technique.

1 Peter 2:9

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

Tweet Leaves – Stampin’ Up! – Stamping With Guneaux Designs

I love the Stampin’ Up! Tweet Leaves stamp and have made another Autumn-themed card using the stamp.  Living in Central Florida typically does not give one the Autumn feeling. I resort to making my Autumn-themed cards to create a dose of Autumn for me (LOL).

However, I must share that my neighbor put in a 15′ Red Maple tree last month and its leaves have turned and are falling.  So now I can look out my craft room window and see  various colors of leaves falling.  However, the colors are dull and not like the vibrant colors from up North.  I need to see more Autumn colors when I look out my window!  🙁

Now, don’t giggle, but I I used Tempting Turquoise on my Autumn card!  Tempting Turquoise???  I know, who thinks of Tempting Turquoise when thinking of Autumn?  It has to be the influence of living in an area that never gets the “It Is Fall” memorandum.  Can any of you do something to get that memorandum sent to Florida each year??  (LOL)

No more nonsense – here’s the Tweet Leaves card (tempting turquoise and all):

Floral Frames Framelits

The Floral Frames Framelits from Stampin’ Up! rank at the top of my favorite framelits.  When it debuted the framelits in January 2012, Stampin’ Up! also developed rubber stamps that coordinated with the framelits.  The Floral Frames Framelits have a coordinating stamp set; however, my card share today does not feature that stamp set.  It features the Floral Frames Framelits

I’ve heard a lot of stampers express their displeasure with one of Stampin’ Up!’s new “In Colors” called Summer Starfruit.  I think it is a cool color and if you combine it with the right color(s), it looks great.  I think this card looks great with the Summer Starfruit Card Stock and Primrose Petals Card Stock, which is also a new In Color.
