There are beautiful things coming in the 2017 Holiday Catalog, including these products from the gorgeous Painted Autumn Suite.  The two-step stamps in “Painted Harvest” create these fabulous sunflowers, and the stamp set will be available bundled with the punch that I used here to make the Copper Foil leaves.

I stamped the flowers with So Saffron and Crushed Curry, and I added a bit of Lemon Lime Twist – one of the colors in the suite’s designer paper collection.  It is such a welcome addition to typical fall shades.  Each of the pieces (designer paper background and Very Vanilla panel) measure 3″ x 4″.

Holiday catalog items will be available starting September 1, or you can choose them as part of your Starter Kit now if you join as a Demonstrator.

Do you recognize the trim under the greeting?  It is our Copper Trim – you can stretch it out to get different textures.  The copper products on this card are all available now from the Annual Catalog.

I have a coordinating throwback picture for this card…

 

Sunflowers always make me think of our autumn trips to Lynd’s Fruit Farm outside of Columbus.  This picture was taken quite a while ago…I think 18 years ago.  These little girls are all grown up and headed back to college today!

This card shows off my favorite new punches from this year’s Annual Catalog along with a favorite new color.  The punches are the Daisy Punch and the Pretty Label Punch, and of course, the color is Lemon Lime Twist.  I think it is so striking with Night of Navy and Melon Mambo.

I was pleased to think of using a background stamp for a change.  Actually, I was looking for just the right designer paper, and wishing I had some stripes.  Duh!!  I can have stripes in every color with this “Brushstrokes” stamp.

The greeting is from “Happy Birthday Gorgeous”.

The Clearance Rack was updated today, so it is a good day to shop.  I would love to have you as a Customer.  This month, I am sending a Daisy Delight Twisted Gate Fold Card and a pack of our new Mini Dimensionals to everyone who orders $35 or more in the online store.  Orders over $50 also qualify for a Buckeye Point in my Loyalty Rewards Program.  I appreciate your support!  Click here to shop, or click on an item in the carousel to go directly to a product used in today’s card.

Have a great day!

I am really excited about these gift boxes for two reasons.  First, they show off our designer papers – and thanks to the range of papers available, they will be adaptable to so many occasions.  Second, the sizes can be easily adjusted as needed.

This Christmas paper is from the Be Merry collection, already available in our Annual Catalog.  We made the striped version of this box in club.  It measures 3″ square, and it is 1 1/2″ high.  The first half of the video below gives detailed instructions on the scoring and construction of this box.  The box bottom is made from a 6″ square of Garden Green cardstock; the top is made from a 6″ square of designer paper.

This is a slightly larger square box – it measures 3 1/2″ square, 1 1/4″ high.  It is perfect for sets of 3″ square cards and 3 1/8″ envelopes.  Good news…these envelopes will be available again from the Holiday Catalog starting September 1.

This same method can be used for rectangular boxes.  This one is 2 1/2″ x 4″, and 1″ high.  The second half of my video shows construction of this rectangular box and the note card box shown above.  You are not limited to the box dimensions I am showing, though, just follow the method to make different sizes.  The only restriction in that the height of the box cannot be more than half the length of any side.

Click here if you would like to shop – any support I receive through your purchases in the online store helps me to continue to provide tutorials (free and ad-free, as much as possible.)

Order $35 or more in August, and I will send you a Delightful Daisy Twisted Gate Fold Birthday Card (unmarked for your use) and a pack of our new Mini Dimensionals.  Please use the Hostess Code listed here on orders under $150.  Orders over $50 also earn a Buckeye Point in my Loyalty Rewards program.

Have a great day!

This Adirondack chair is my favorite thing from the Colorful Seasons bundle – at least for the moment.  I am sure that will change as the seasons change.  Summer is winding down, and I am ready to move on to leaves, and the leaves in this bundle are fabulous, too!  See what is included in this bundle for all seasons in the picture below.

The designer paper strip measures 2″ x 4″; the Whisper White measures 2 3/4″ x 4″, and the Berry Burst measures 3″ x 4 1/4″.

I missed the “Christmas in July” window with this project, but since it is so adaptable to any occasion, we’ll just let that slide!  This can be made in different themes to deliver gift cards for birthdays, for anniversaries, or for no reason.

The new Circle Tab Punch makes a perfect “pull” piece for the insert, a piece of Whisper White folded up at the bottom.  Instructions to make this project are in the video below.  If you are receiving this blog post in your email, click here for the video.

Here is a Coffee Cafe version…

Love that coffee cup!!  If you are buying my Coffee Cafe class this month (details here), it includes a similar design, so you will get two of these pocket bases – already cut and scored!

And an Ohio State version…

I used Washi Tape to make this pocket.  If you use Washi Tape, make sure to burnish the ends with your bone folder so the tape doesn’t get caught against the pocket.

I needed some quick and summery thank you notes, so I inked up “Background Bits” for this simple card.  It is one of the Host sets that you can purchase with Stampin’ Rewards earned on orders of $150 or more.  You don’t have to have a party to earn these – your friends anywhere in the country can add to a group order.  Contact me at stampyourworld@gmail.com to learn how to set up a group order that will accumulate Stampin’ Rewards.

My note cards are so quick – I made four of them in just minutes.  I cut a piece of vellum with one of the Layering Square Framelits to use as a mask.  Then I used markers (Always Artichoke and Berry Burst) to ink the stamp from “Background Bits”, and stamped over the mask.  With the mask still in place, I added a bit of Lemon Lime Twist with a dauber.  The greeting and a little bow finished it off – so easy!
