Pumpkin Spice, Spice, Baby



Hi friends! Today I'm popping in with a couple of cards I created with the fabulous new Jaded Blossom release. Y'all know I love coffee stamps, and Autumn themed stamps, so it's no wonder that lots of goodies that fit both of these themes hopped into my shopping cart.


My first card pairs the new Pumpkin Juice set with the previously released Thankful for my Gnomie set. I stamped the images and colored with Copic markers, then fussy cut.  I then cut the Treat Tag Die from dark roast cardstock and Carta Bella designer paper. Then I stamped the tag design from Pumpkin Juice on the patterned paper portion and assembled the tag, adding dimension to my pumpkin mug, and topping the tag off with ribbon and twine.

The gnomie and pumpkin are added in the corner with foam adhesive, as well, for a little pop, then I used the same designer paper for my background,  and finished with a few sequins.


My second card features the giant coordinating pumpkin mug in the Pumpkin Spice Season set. I colored it up with Copic markers, then fussy cut the leaves and mug, embossing the hello pumpkin sentiment from Pumpkin Picking. I then stamped the image again on kraft cardstock and stenciled tone on tone with the Pumpkin Stencil.  Then I pieced the colored pumpkin onto the stamped pumpkin and tucked a few leaves I had cut and colored behind the mug.


I used the same technique with evergreen bough and cracked pistachio inks for the main background of the card.  I accented with a polka dot knotted bow and added the pumpkin kisses and harvest wishes sentiment from Pumpkin Picking down below. A few rhinestones and this card is ready to mail.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous day!

Skating by with a Holiday Hi


Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a charming little Christmas card featuring the new Wonder of Christmas stamp set and coordinating dies from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I love the beautiful ice skate images, but I also love that this set has some little pine branch & berry accessories to create your own arrangements with.

I started how I usually do... coloring the images with Copics, then die cutting. I then fussed around with tucking all those little accents into the skate until I was happy with the arrangement. Then it was just a matter of adding stickles and white gel pen accents and my focal piece was done.



Not only does this set have awesome imagery, it also has beautiful sentiments. And the Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas stamps have outline dies included in the die set! That made it easy to emboss happy holidays in silver, then die cut to pop up on my card.

The background is embossed with a diagonal stripe embossing folder, and I finished with a little ribbon/jingle bell combo. I plan to hand deliver this one, so the added bulk isn't an issue.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous start to your week.
