I squeezed out some time to play along this week. I wasn’t sure about this theme of the DSP Paper. I like all the Designer series paper but I don’t find myself using them all that often. So actually this was a good challenge for me 😊. I guess I just really like Stamping and the only stamping on this card is the sentiment, everything else came from a card kit. I used the BoHo blossom card kit from last year’s catalog it has a lot of designer series paper in the beautiful in-color moonlight madness, it will be retiring next year😕. Since everything was in the kit I knew it would all go well together so this didn’t take much time at all. That’s one of the nice things about the kits, all the supplies coordinate and you can put together a card fairly quickly. If you are a new stamper that might be the way to get started. It takes all the guesswork out of it trying to figure out if things will look good together. Well I hope you’ll join us on this one. My gardening is coming to an end so I’m hoping I’ll be able to start posting something every week. (That’s my only excuse for not being here so often the last few months🥴)

Decided today to pull out this bundle from the Stampin Up 2021 Holiday mini catalog. Merriest Moments is a lovely bundle with a lot of bang for your buck. The stamp set has a layered or not poinsettia, holly leaves, berries, other greenery and sentiments, dies to cut out the poinsettias and greenery, a stitched rectangle, AND a couple large dies that can be used with an embossing folder. The big outline one can be used right inside the embossing folder-it will cut and emboss at the same time. The other one will cut a more detailed version of the embossed piece.
This card shows the embossed and cut piece done together.

I have been wanting to pull out my Art Impressions stamps for quite a while now. Yesterday evening I took the time to do just that!! I followed a tutorial by Bonnie on this one. It’s a 3 x 3 picture I enjoyed doing and would will be making some more. Since fall is right around the corner she added pumpkins in front of the fence and fall colored leaves on the trees. I love fall, the colors that it brings, the cooler weather, yesterday it felt like fall. I’m learning a lot about perspective and shading from the tutorials of Bonnie and Kendra.

Although I don’t have school age children I do have grandchildren so this card will go to one of them.
Do you have more time to stamp/craft after school starts? I would think many mourners would unless they are home schooling. This is an easy sketch give it a try, the pieces and parts don’t have to be exact. The theme is fun and any child would really appreciate a back to school card. Oh and let’s not forget the teachers if you know one they would love to know they’re thought of and appreciated.

Hello I’m glad you stopped by, we’re all Stamper’s/card markers-it’s what we do and love it. Have I ever told you about my card making ‘love’?😄 I really love to make cards that have moving parts! It’s a challenge to me and a fun surprise to who ever is getting the card! This card fills that urge in me.

Our theme this week is... Thank you
I’ve been thinking lately how getting a personal thank you card in the mail is so not done anymore and I believe it’s a shame!! Everyone needs a thank you and encouragement for feeling appreciated-a hasty text just doesn’t cut it!! Sending more thank you cards is something I know I need to do, how about you? Here’s a way to get at least one card done for someone who did something special or just IS someone special to you. The personal touch of making a card is so special.
Sooo let’s get out some supplies and make a card-are you with me😊 ?
I was in the creative mood and decided not to follow the sketch but center the card on the suggested theme. I’ve been playing around with the alcohol blends/Vellum technique for backgrounds and that’s what I used behind the sail boat and lighthouse. If you have any questions on this just leave it in the comments and I’ll try to answer.
Have a lovely day. Can you believe it’s almost August!!!!?!!!
