Papercrafting Blog Hop - Fall / Thanksgiving theme

Welcome back to another hop around the globe with my fellow Demonstrators sharing projects with a Halloween theme.  You may be starting the hop with me or just arrived from someone else in the loop, but you won't want to miss anyone so I've listed everyone at the bottom of this post. 

A warm welcome to you joining me, Sandra, here in the UK for todays hop. 

Those Autumn leaves are definitely falling in all their colourful glory.  Thinking of which stamp set to use, I immediately went to my Painted Harvest #144783 stamp set, together with the coordinating Leaf Punch #144667.

It's always nice rejuvenating a set that has sadly been a bit neglected of late, due to all the wonderful Christmas selection I'm using for classes and Retreats.

The Sunflowers were stamped in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede inks, then 'fussy cut' with our Paper Snips #103579.
Here is a close up of the leaves that have been stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on Old Olive card, and then Old Olive ink on Pear Pizzazz card.  All made so much easier to have a coordinating Leaf punch !
I hope you have enjoyed my Fall / Thanksgiving theme project today and that enjoy the rest of your day.

CASE Challenge 10 - Twist & Pop card

Hello and welcome back for another CASE Challenge with my Demonstrator friends Emma and Becki. 

Week 10 on the CASE challenge is inspired by our Demonstrator colleague Carol B with her Twist & Pop card.  I love this style of work and was so looking forward to creating todays project.  You can find her blog  HERE.
For my project today, I have chosen to use the Peaceful Noel stamp set #147694.  
The Joyous Noel Speciality Designer Series Papers #147816 have foiled elements that really make this paper so gorgeous, you only need minimal decoration.
For my decoration, I've added some Sprig Punch #148012 leaves and some punched from our wonderful new Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper #147817.  The berries are also punched from the Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper using an office hole punch.
Hopefully you have enjoyed this card today.  There are lots of versions of this around, but I was pleased that my class attendees thought mine was the simplest way to do !  The instructions are quite long, mainly because of so many photos, but if you would like a copy, please leave me a comment below.

Remember to pop over and visit Becki HERE and then on to Emma HERE and see their take on today's challenge.
Next weeks challenge
Next week we will be creating our inspiration from Becky Christensen and her Magic Card.   You can see Becky's blog HERE  I love this style of card and am looking forward to creating one this week to share with you.

Pop back next Monday to see our inspired creations and also find out who is chosen as our spotlight designer for the following week.  
If you would like to join in this challenge, feel free to CASE Becky's card, take a photo and email me or upload to my Sandra's Stamp & Craft Studio Facebook page. I can't wait to see all the different versions we create together.  We’ll share the photos we receive in next Monday’s post.  
Happy craftin'

Kre8tors Blog Hop : Autumn Colour Theme


Today I'm back with my fellow Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, sharing our creativity globally through our Kre8tors Blog Hop group. 

This months theme is an Autumn Colour Challenge using this photo for inspirations.  Aren't they just gorgeous colours for this time of the year ?
For my card today, I used a Soft Suede card base, with a Very Vanilla mat layer.  The small speckles from Waterfront #146386 were stamped in Gray Granite ink pad 147118

Thank You Thinlits Dies #146832 were cut from Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Granny Apple Green card stock.

The small flowers from Jar Of Love #141587 were stamped in each of the colours above and die-cut using Everyday Jars Framelits #141490.  After being shaped with the ball tool end from our NEW Take Your Pick tool #144107, they were adhered to the 'T' using Tombow adhesive #110755.
This is a close up to show the colours and the detail on the flowers.  The small Clear Rhinestone Jewels #144220 in the centre just finishes them off with a 'bit of bling'.

I hope you have been inspired by my little contribution today.  Enjoy the rest of your 'hop' around the globe today by clicking the arrow to visit Tracy and see the wonderful creations she has to share with you.  We do really appreciate reading your lovely comments on our posts.
