Birthday Blooms come to life with Stampin’ Blends

Dawn’s Swap Card – 2017 OnStage

Today, I have a quick share for you. I wanted to show you the cards I made to swap while at OnStage-I absolutely love them!

I love…

  • the vibrant colors
  • the shading on the leaves and petals
  • versatility of the layout

I had a great time playing with the new Stampin’ Blends on these cards and the color combinations are endless! I’m sure you will want to give this card a try very soon.

Let’s Take a Look!

DSC#253: Gourd Goodness

Gourd Goodness was not on my original “I want this stamp set NOW!” list but that quickly changed.

Why?

  • the sentiment
  • the two step stamping details
  • the variety of gourds…Gourds galore in this stamp set! Decorate your house AND your projects with these plants and bring some color into that fall!

My project for today is part of the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge.

 

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #253 Home Sweet Home Challenge shared by Dawn Thomas. For details, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

I was inspired by the beautiful pumpkins on the square pillows resting on the neutral colored sofa.

Stampin' Up! Gourd Goodness card featuring two step stamping for beautiful details. For instructions click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #twostepstamping #gourdgoodness

The detail on the pumpkins is what sold me on this stamp set – they look like I might have some super secret technique or talent but I don’t, instead I have a great stamp set that did all the shading and details for me.

Wow-so simple.

This card went together is a matter of minutes and looks like I spent much more time and energy on it than I actually did.

You will love how quickly you can make a handful of these beauties to send out those special people in your life.

I like to keep a couple cards in my hand bag to give to people I meet throughout my day…

the clerk at the grocery store,

the barista at the coffee shop

the nurse at the doctor’s office

or the any one that looks like they could use a little “pick me up”.

DSC#251: Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #251. Sketch Pad Challenge shared by Dawn Thomas. For details, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge this week is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge.

I decided to rotate the sketch to accommodate the pattern on the paper, which is one of the things I love about creativity…

there is no right or wrong way as long as you like the outcome

Seems like most of my projects are a culmination of “happy accidents” – the finished project seldom resembles the idea I started with in my head.

I enjoy Sketch Challenges because initial design is already completed and I can focus on adding the colors and patterns that tickle my fancy!

This week I was inspired by fun and whimsical images in the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper.

I love the vibrant colors of this card.

Create & Play: Memories & More Color Theory

I was recently challenged by my friend and upline, Dawn Olchefske, to take a few pieces from the Memories & More Color Theory Card Pack, combine them with a few pieces of coordinating product and create a card.

Sounds a little like those cooking shows where they give you some ingredients and expect you to create a meal.

Thankfully, the card pieces were not as obscure as some of the ingredients I’ve seen on the cooking shows.

The pieces I had to play with were:

  • Crushed Curry card base (4-1/2″ x 11″)
  • some Glitter Enamel Dots
  • approximately 18″ Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding
  • 3 pieces from the Memories & More Color Theory Card Pack

Boy, I wish I had taken a picture of the pieces before I started cutting things up!

But…here is the final project!

Memories & More Color Theory Card Pack from Stampin' Up!. Create Play Challenge for details click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #colortheory #memories&more

Comparable to a gourmet meal?

Absolutely NOT.

And I probably won’t win any awards but I am pleased with the final outcome.

This project gave me an opportunity to play with some products that I do not currently have in my personal craft stash as well as a chance to push myself to use a color (Crushed Curry) I don’t generally reach for when creating.

Here is an up close and personal peek at the Glitter Enamel Dots and some of the details.

Painted Harvest Swaps

Today I am thrilled to be sharing some beautiful swaps that I recently received from some fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and some others that I saw while at the Creative Connection event in MN. All the projects that I am sharing feature the Painted Harvest Bundle which includes the Painted Harvest stamp set and the Leaf Punch. When you purchase these two products together as a Bundle, you will save 10%.

Sit back and enjoy!

And then…Send someone the beauty of autumn with this sunflower-themed set!
