Designer Paper Sympathy

Sad to say I have been sending several Sympathy Cards in the past few weeks.  Three Co-workers each lost one of their Parents, that time in life we all must face but so hard to navigate.  I wanted a Simple Design and my NEW pack of  Designer paper has many options and is part of the Designer Paper Sale.



This paper really reminded me of the Daisy stem and paired with the Layered Leaves dynamic embossing folder really added to the Natural feel of this card.  Soft Sky card base, Pear Pizzazz mat and Crushed Curry Daisy.


2 Daisies were stamped and punched then popped up on a Stitched Oval.  Love these Gold Faceted gems, not too much Sparkle, just lots of Texture.

The GREAT Pumpkin


I always loved the Peanuts Halloween Special and this scene reminds of that show and the cute music that went with it......I know Snoopy was in that Pumpkin Patch, but MY Snoopy is a cat......so this card features the Cat with Halloween Words as fur.  I sponged some Crushed Curry to add a GLOW to the cat.



The Stars and Moon were created using the Card Front Builder Framelits which is part of the Carols of Christmas bundle.  This Bundle is not just for Christmas!!  The Stars were cut from a Basic Back mat 5 1/2 X 4/14 which is then placed over a Crushed Curry card base.


Pumpkins and Gourds were stamped and cut with the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle,  Cat punched and stamped from the Spooky Cat Bundle and Sentiment.  I used the faces on these pumpkins.  Spooky Night paper makes a nice backdrop for this Spooky Night card!

Great Gourds!


I wanted to feature the Gourds in this set today.  Stamp them in different colors on different papers for really natural looks.  Add a few Pumpkins and a doily and some Foil paper for a Sweet Simple card!


The Pumpkins are Pumpkin Pie ink on Pumpkin Pie card stock..  Gourds are Old Olive on So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie on So Saffron with a hint of Old Olive ink on the edges and Old Olive on Lemon Lime Twist.   More Painted Autumn designer paper for the leaves.  I have found that using all the framelits and cutting multiple items is the way to go.  You then have a nice pile of embellishments to choose from and build your card.  AND you can cut them in bunches!




Old Olive card base with a Crumb Cake mat and Foil Frenzy accent.  Sentiment is from "All Things Thanks"  I cut off the rest of this sentiment.......check below and you'll understand why!  Don't be afraid to alter your sentiments, it is easy to re-position and use them again as a whole.

The BIG Pumpkin


This "Pick a Pumpkin" Bundle is so versatile and I love Tone on Tone stamping.  For this card I chose a Pumpkin Pie card base and Pumpkin Pie Pumpkins!  I cut a large circle out of the Foil Frenzy paper and added the Painted Autumn print Leaves and Tendrils.  This pattern is perfect for the greens of this card.

The Open Pumpkin also has a leaf and tendril added with the Foil Frenzy peeking thru.  The Sentiment is from "All Things Thanks" stamped in Early Expresso on Crumb Cake.   Using the Misti stamping tool allows for a nice dark saturated Sentiment!



I trimmed the edges of the Big Pumpkin to fit the Crumb Cake mat and then layered the other pumpkins.  I cut the Pumpkins first, then inked up the stamp and pressed the paper to the stamp.

Ingredients:

Pick a Pumpkin

Took a few days off again, company in town for the long weekend.  Today I am using an adorable set that can be Natural or Whimsy.  Of course I went for Nature!!


I love all the shapes and sizes in this stamp set and matching Framelits.  And all the gorgeous Foliage!!  I used the Blender pen to add some shading to the stamped pumpkins and leaves.


I used the Burlap Background stamp a bit off center in Crumb Cake on a Whisper White mat.  Happy Birthday was stamped in Early Expresso


The Foliage was stamped in Old Olive, Pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie.  I added some Foil Frenzy paper behind the cut out Large Pumpkin and used Painted Autumn paper for the tendrils and leaves on the pumpkin.  The Gourd was also stamped on a designer paper pattern.

Burlap 143979 Wood $20.00,  143982 Clear $15.00

Past Paper Pumpkin meets Designer Paper SALE!!!

In case you missed it Paper Pumpkin is going to have 2 Coordinating kits coming SOON!  You must sign up by Oct. 10th to get the FIRST kit!!  

I've been spending some time in the craft room catching up after the BUSY Royals season and LOVE this AUGUST kit!!  Sadly this kit and refills are sold out, but once I started assembling I noticed the colors in this kit coordinate with the Naturally Eclectic Designer which is one of the Papers in the BUY 3, Get 1 FREE offer which runs until the end of the month.


Here is one of the kit cards and matching envelope.  SO easy and the only stamping was the Night of Navy petals on the Pool Party Flowers.  That's what I LOVE about these kits, you can stamp more, or LESS, embellish as you feel the need and still come away with beautiful cards!!!  And with Pre-stamped, pre-cut pieces the Youngest and Oldest members of your Family can HELP with the projects!


This card features a 5 1/4 X 4 inch piece of Naturally Eclectic Designer paper.  I used Kit pieces to finish this card.

This Sympathy Card used the Stamps, ink, leaves and Oval on a different pattern of Naturally Eclectic Designer paper.


And yet another Naturally Eclectic pattern with pre-cut leaves and Stamped Thanks image.


This kits came with a card box and ribbon so you could GIFT your box of cards!  What an awesome gift!


And finally here is another card base and matching envelope in this kit.  I hope you are seeing the convenience of these kits and the FUN you can have assembling your projects with Family and Friends!!
