Gourd Goodness Take 2

Same but Different

After creating my Gourd Goodness card for last Thursday’s challenge, click here to see it, I decided it needed a little something extra.

So….

I added a few extra details to “jazz” it up a bit.

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

What did I use to create this Gourd Goodness beauty?

Stamp Set: Gourd Goodness

Ink: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Early Espresso

Accessories: Pinewood Planks embossing folder, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Squares Framelits, Copper Metallic Thread

  • two step stamping tip:
    • lighter color (Pumpkin Pie) on the less detailed image
    • darker color (Cajun Craze) on the more detailed image
    • Soft Suede stamped off once for less detailed stem and full strength for detailed stem

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”.

Last Minute Halloween Treat Ideas

Halloween is coming!

Today I wanted to share some Last Minute Halloween Treat Ideas.

I am famous for being a “Last Minute Lucy” but today is a new day.

Below are some Hershey nugget Halloween treats made with all sorts of goodies from the 2017 Holiday catalog.

Here are my projects:

Halloween Blog Tour - Last Minute Halloween Treat Ideas. Featuring a Spooky Cat, Jack-O-Lantern and chocolate. For details, click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

Here is how simple these are to make…

  • Wrap Hershey nuggets in Designer Series Paper (1″x3″), adhere Fast Fuse or Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.
  • Tray for nuggets: cut card stock (1-7/8″x5″) and score 1/4″ from edge on each of the long sides
  • Slide tray and nuggets into cellophane bag (2″x8″-item #141703)
  • Topper: cut cardstock (2-1/2″ x 4″), score at 2″, adhere to top of cello bag with Fast Fuse.
  • Give away & enjoy making someone’s day a little nicer!

These little goodies are always a hit at the craft sales or when given as little gifts to co-workers, teachers, etc.

Always take the scenic route.

Lately, I’ve been turning to the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog…it may be small but it is MIGHTY!

For ShowCASE Sunday, page 51 in 2017 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' Up! For details click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #smittenmittens #handstamped

One of the reasons this image was chosen is because of the versatility but also because I love the layer of vellum and it’s ability to tone down the images in the background designer series paper.

It is amazing what a layer of translucent vellum can do for a card, it adds a touch of softness while simultaneously allowing the focal point to take center stage.

Bravo Vellum Cardstock! Bravo!

I would encourage you to try this on your next card and see what a difference it makes.

One Sheet Wonder-Try It Now!

Old Dog-New Tricks!

I tried something new this week and wanted to share it with you…

One Sheet Wonder!

I took one sheet of designer series paper, cut it up and created 14 cards!

Now, I know that the One Sheet Wonder technique is not new and there are at least a gazillion patterns floating about the internet but …

I am SUPER excited about this and couldn’t wait to share it with you.

One Sheet Wonder Pattern makes 14 cards. Featuring Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. For details, click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #paintedautumn #dsp #onesheetwonder

Start cutting on the red horizontal lines.

 

After cutting the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, I used the pieces to create the following cards. I am thrilled with how quickly they came together.

DSC#252: Painted Autumn Suite

With Autumn in full swing, I wanted to share the Painted Autumn Suite today.

  • Painted Harvest stamp set
  • Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper

 

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #252 Color Challenge featuring Cajun Craze, Soft Sky, Peekaboo Peach shared by Dawn Thomas. For details, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

 

This week I was inspired by the color combination and the One Sheet Wonder Technique or making several cards from a single piece of patterned paper.

This is not an idea that I came up with on my own, in fact there are oodles of patterns on Pinterest.

I can’t wait to show you the cards I created and share the pattern that I used.

Make sure you come back tomorrow to see how easy it is to make 14 cards from 1 piece of Designer Series Paper.

 

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Suite Thank You card for DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #252. For details and instructions, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #paintedautumn #paintedharvest

What did I use to create Painted Autumn beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Stamp Set: Painted Harvest
  • Paper: Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, Peekaboo Peach, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Cajun Craze, Soft Sky
  • Accessories: Linen Thread, Whisper White Baker’s Twine
  • It’s All in the Details:
    • Baker’s twine can be changed to any color you need by simply pressing it onto a stamp pad of the desired color. In this case, Soft Sky.

 

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn Suite Thank You card for DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #252. For details and instructions, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #paintedautumn #paintedharvest

 

Painted Autumn Thank You Card
  1. Adhere Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper onto Cajun Craze and then onto Peekaboo Peach card base.
  2. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp sentiment with Cajun Craze ink. See NOTE below. Adhere to card front.
  3. Tie bow with 2 strands of Linen Thread and 1 strand of colored Baker’s Twine, attach with Glue Dot.
  4. Stamp inside sentiment on Very Vanilla cardstock, adhere.
  5. Address an envelope, write a message inside and drop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

NOTE: if you look closely at the sentiment, you will see my “happy accident”…I had stamped it in Soft Sky originally but thought it was too light so I stamped over it with Cajun Craze but I didn’t get it lined up exactly so some of the Soft Sky is peeking out giving it a bit of a shadowy look.

I liked it so I decided to just roll with it. What do you think? Do you ever do that?
