Shimmery Gathered Wheat

Hey all! Look at me - two days in a row! Unexpected time at home equals some time to play! And it is far too hot outside to be doing much. We had a nice rain last night, but the weekend sounds brutal!

This is my first play with a new set, coming in the July-December Mini Catalog called Gathered Wheat. I'm a Kansas girl through and through and Wheat is right up there with Sunflowers for me. Especially since it is harvest time and we are missing it again.

Very quick and simple Thinking of You card. Vanilla background stamped with the Wheat bundle image in Crushed Curry. I tried several things (on other images) to color the rope, and nothing looked good. They all just got muddy and lost the detail. And this doesn't show well in the scan, but I grabbed my Stella pen and went over the tops of the wheat, and the rope. Totally accents all and makes them pop. Before that it was rather blended, but this looks great. And in person is a nice, subtle accent. Saying in Soft Suede finishes the card. Accent layer of Soft Suede, and Crushed Curry card base.

This is a great set, perfect for masculine cards. There is also a set of coordinating dies. I can't link below as they aren't yet available, but here are the numbers/costs.

Always and Forever!

Hey all! Hope you are all doing well! Pretty good here :) I have managed to create a few things lately, just haven't found the time to share. Here is one, a wedding card I did last week. I actually did a different card first, then realized the card should somewhat match the paper and I hadn't looked to see what I have. So, after looking I started over! If I had any general wedding in white or silver, I would have been OK. But I didn't. Everything had a definite color and pattern to it. But I had one that I knew would work with Painted Poppies. The printed paper was very similar to the flower, and the colors were orange and bright pink. 

I think it worked well! Colors are Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black. Card base is Pumpkin, accent of Melon. Shimmery White Cardstock for the background and saying. Painted Poppies stamp set. Saying is from a retired set, Forever Blossoms. I alternated Pumpkin and Mambo solid images, then went over them all with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Added some Daffodil splatters for accent and to fill white space. Black glitter ribbon, also retired, was knotted around the center then the saying attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. Pretty quick and easy! and hopefully a wow!

Thanks for stopping by today. Product details below. Hopefully more coming soon. I've got some new sets that I actually started working with last night. Hoping to spend most of my afternoon/evening in the stamp room today playing :)

In Color Paper Pumpkin!

Hey, all. Long time no see!! I finally made it to the stamp room last weekend on Sunday! Sadly it has taken me almost a week to get these posted.  I spent the afternoon sorting out retired/current everything. Then worked on the most recent Paper Pumpkin that evening - Celebrating In Color. Here is the box. I always like an alternate now and then!

The kit featuring the NEW In Colors, 2 cards with each color.

A look at the contents. Open and scattered. The card bases and coordinating envelopes. Some of the die cuts.

More contents. More die cuts, bases, embellishments and gift card pockets.

A close up of the gift pocket. Meant to hold a gift card inside the cards. I did not attach, but will if I use with a gift card. Adhesive applies to the fold and you attach to the card.

And, the stamp set. All Celebration related!

And the cards. As usual, I didn't stray much from the samples. But I did do mine one color per card, mainly with the embellishments. The samples show mixed but I did all the same as the bases.

Orchid Oasis

Parakeet Party

Starry Sky

Sweet Sorbet

And Tahitian Tide! This card I did change. I don't see myself sending a card that says "you make me happy". But this, yes.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope to be back soon! Life is still keeping us super busy and on the go. Guess that is good. And summer means garden and flowers take a lot of time to keep going. But I'm ready to get back to creating!
