Painted Harvest Christmas Wreath

Hi folks!  I’ll be posting some quick shares over the next month, so you can see some of the wonderful swap cards I received at OnStage!  If you don’t know what OnStage is, it’s a WONDERFUL even that Stampin’ Up! holds every 6 months where all the Demonstrators can get together and celebrate!  I’ll be sharing more pictures of that, too! If you want to join me at these events, all you need to do is join my team – contact me and we can talk!!

So, to get us started, here is the card I made for a super nice group of ladies – at a team breakfast while at OnStage. It was so nice to meet so many new people! We were asked to make a card using a bundle. I selected the Painted Harvest stamp set with the coordinating Leaf Punch! At first you wouldn’t think of winter with it, but didn’t this turn out cool??

Who knew? I used the Leaf Punch and snipped off the leaves to make lights. Whoa, right?!?  LOL  I even sponged a bit of each color under each bulb to make it look like the lights were on… in person I swear it looks cool – and sparklie!!
I love that this bundle can be used for so much more than what you originally see in the catalog!


NEW:  There are a few new specials coming up next week for Stampin’ Up’s Online Extravaganza… so I will have more info on that the closer we get to it – you will not want to miss out!! There will be some time-sensitive items. 🙂

Blogging Friends Blog Hop – Fall

Welcome to this month’s “Blogging Friends Blog Hop!”

Happy November folks!  It’s the first of the month, and time for the Fall version of the Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’? We are Stampin’ Up! demonstrators all across the U.S. and Canada. Most of us haven’t met in person, but love Stampin’ Up and want to share with you! Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!  Each month we’ll have a different theme!

With the Fall and Thanksgiving theme, I picked a card design that covers both Fall and Thanks! When I think of Fall, I think of leaves and pumpkins, and the colors orange and yellow. Nobody said pumpkins have to only be for Halloween! Here’s what I came up with:

www.stampinmak.com

I love the rustic look with the burlap ribbon on this. It’s got two stamp sets, some Designer Series Paper, ribbon, framelits, and… I used the new Blends!

Featured Items used:  Burlap & At Home With You stamp sets; Coffee Break DSP; Gold Foil; Seasonal Layers & Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits; Stampin Blends

www.stampinmak.com

The leaves have some Wink of Stella on them, and so do the pumpkins. They all shimmer in the light.

These new alcohol markers, called Stampin’ Blends, are available starting today! Make sure to check out my online store to see them, and I’ll have more samples coming up soon.
Check out the awesome shading you can do with them here:

So many wonderful things you can do with these.  I can’t wait to see all the other Fall and Thanksgiving projects everyone else came up with!

Thanks for stopping by this time and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!

Celebrate You with the Eclipse Technique

I know the solar eclipse has come and gone, but this technique is still making it’s way around. This is a fun way to showcase a word in a subtle way.
It uses the Large Letters Framelits and some Dimensionals.

www.StampinMak.com

I have the Vintage Leaves stamped in Old Olive with a bit of Garden Green on some edges. The ‘Celebrate’ comes from the Beautiful You stamp set using the Fresh Fig ink.
Once it was all stamped, I used the Large Letter Framelits to cut out the Y-O-U.
I layered the background on some Fresh Fig cardstock, so the darker color would show under the letters. I then used a few Dimensionals to pop up the letters back where they came from.

www.StampinMak.com

It gives it just enough lift to see color below it, and still see the letters that were cut out.  There are so many options with this technique! You can use any combination of letters, or even some of the Numbers Framelits for a birthday celebration!

Let me know what combination you come up with,
Happy Stamping!
Mak
