Fall Pumpkin and Hay Card

Fall always reminds me of Pumpkins and bales of hay.  So I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to make a Pumpkin and a couple bales of hay.  Hope you enjoy it!

 Lay about half the Crushed Curry Scribbles on your card front to help you position your Pumpkin.  Glue your Pumpkin in place.
7.  Tie Baker’s Twine around part of the scribble.  It is kind of tricky to tie it without scrunching the scribbles together.  Tie either a bow or a knot.  Put glue on the back of the “half” Crushed Curry scribbles, centering the Baker’s Twine.  Glue to card.
8.  Attach your Welcome with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Guest Stamper: Oliver

Oliver is my almost 6 year-old grandson.  Here are a couple of the projects he has made while visiting me.

The first project is his version of the Dinosaur card posted HERE.   He used the No Bones About It stamp set.  He chose the card stock colors and chose the Woodgrain embossing folder  and ran it through the Big Shot himself.  He also die cut the Ovals.  He chose the ink colors (Pumpkin Pie and Memento Black) and did stamping himself.  He glued it all together with Tombow Glue.  He is very pleased with how everything looks.
Dinosaur-No Bones About It-CardHis second project is made with the NEW Gift Bag Punch Board.  He chose Wild Wasabi card stock, the Bravo stamp set, and Memento Black ink.  The ribbon is from my retired box.  He did all the scoring himself (with me telling him where to score).  He was not strong enough to do the punching himself, but was pleased with how it turned out.  I also add the Tear & Tape Adhesive for him.

Bootiful Occasions Cowgirl Boot

I have been wanting to use this Cowgirl Boot stamp for a while and finally got around to making it.  It was a pretty quick and simple card to make!  Make one today for yourself or someone you know.
Bootiful Cowgirl Boot

Stamps:  Bootiful Occasions  w#131967  c#126597
Ink:  VersaMark
Baked Brown Sugar
Card Stock:  Baked Brown Sugar
Chocolate Chip
Gold Foil Sheets #132622
Big Shot:  Stars Framelits #133723
Deco Labels Framelits #130102
Woodgrain embossing folder #127821
Other:  Basics Hodgepodge Clips #133765
Gold Embossing Powder  #109129
Heat Tool #129053
Tombow Glue

1.  Cut your Baked Brown Sugar card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Watch this video if you need the basics on card bases.
2.  Cut your Baked Brown Sugar card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Get your Woodgrain embossing folder and your Baked Brown Sugar ink pad.  Rub your ink pad directly on the inside front (with the Stampin’ Up! and Sizzix logos) until it is nicely covered with ink.  Position your card front on the clean part of the embossing folder.  Close the folder and run through your Big Shot as usual.  Remove your card stock.  Admire the fun way your card stock is now colored to look more like wood!  Clean your embossing folder by running it under tap water and drying with a paper towel.  You can also spray it with Stampin’ Mist and wipe dry with a paper towel or wipe off with a baby wipe.  Attach your embossed card front to your card base with Tombow Glue.
3.  Back to the Big Shot to cut out your Framelits.  Cut the Deco Label from Chocolate Chip card stock.  To cut your Gold Foil Star you will need to put a scrap piece of card stock on top of the Gold Foil as it tends to pick up all the marks from your cutting plates if you just cut it by itself.
4.  Put a Star Clip on your Deco Label and attach it to your card front with Tombow Glue.  Attach your Gold Star with Dimensionals.
5.  Stamp your Boot on Chocolate Chip card stock using VersaMark ink.  Sprinkle with Gold Embossing Powder.  Remove excess.  Melt with Heat Tool.  Cut out with your paper snips.  Attach to your Gold Star with Dimensionals.

Happy Cowgirl Days!

Wonderfall Autumn Leaves

Glue Dots

1.  Lay stamps rubber side up and place die cut card stock leaf on top of inked rubber stamp.  Hold with a finger or two on one half and rub an clear-mount block or wood block firmly on card stock several times.  Switch where you are holding it and rub the other side of the card stock.  You can use sponging or dragging the edges of the leaves across the stamp pad so the edges aren’t so plain if desired.  I only did it on one of the leaves.
2.  Run your Soft Suede ink pad gently across the embossed Woodgrain Crumb Cake card stock until you have the desired effect.
3.  Attach Buttons with several Glue Dots.
4.  I embossed the acorn with the Argyle embossing folder.
