Daisy Punch Thank You

Daisy Punch is a quick and easy way to add interest and depth to your projects. And there’s no better way to cut out stamped images—many of our stamp sets have coordinating punches. Punch multiple images to create a more full daisy.

Today’s card was created for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge.

Painted Harvest Birthday Card

A Painted Harvest Birthday conjures up ideas of falling leaves, hot apple cider and cooler weather.

The Thursday Challenge this week is a color challenge.

This week I was inspired by the color combination and if I had the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper it would have been a snap!

But…

that is the one pack of Designer Series Paper that I didn’t buy for some odd reason.

So…

I decided to find a way to combine the colors without the assistance of the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper and that super cutie patootie little witch and kitten.

Dashing Along DSP-Not just for Christmas

Dashing Along Designer Series Paper contains a collection of patterns that have an eclectic feel and is perfect for layering, and while the newsprint design isn’t Christmas-themed, it was selected it for its versatility and popularity with customers.

I wanted to use the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper in a non-Christmas way and thought that the DOstamper STARS Thursday “showCASE” Challenge was the perfect opportunity.

Buffalo Check: Fall Banner

What would a Fall Banner be without some Buffalo Check?

When I started thinking about this project, I had about a million ideas running through my head (all in the middle of the night, of course).

After tossing and turning it over in my sleepless head, I finally had a plan and couldn’t wait until morning to start crafting.

You know…at 4am the house is very quiet.

I started the DOstamperSTARS Thursday “Color My World” Challenge as the starting point for my color inspiration.

 

Stampin' Up! Color Challenge featuring Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze and Old Olive. For details, click through to my blog #CrackedPotStamper #stampinup

 

I have to be honest…2 out of the 3 colors are NOT favorites of mine, but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and use them. And I have to say, I am pleased with the end result.

What is your favorite color?

Blackberry Bliss is currently my favorite – I was thrilled when Stampin’ Up! brought it back!

I love that this project can be displayed for several months, welcoming people as they come into my home.

 

Stampin' Up! Fall Banner featuring warm Fall colors & Copper Glimmer Paper-only available in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. For details, please click through to my blog #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #HappyFall #homedecor #LoveItLiveItShareIt

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

  • Stamp Set: Buffalo Check
  • Paper: Joyous Noel Glimmer Pack, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Blackberry Bliss, Vellum
  • Ink: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Blackberry Bliss
  • Accessories: Nature’s Twine
  • Tools: Big Shot, Large Letter Framelits, Delicate Lace Edgelits, Starburst Punch, 1/8″ Circle Handheld Punch
  • Adhesive: Foam Adhesive Strips, Tear & Tape
It’s All in the Details:
  • tone on tone stamping adds a subtle texture and pattern (the Blackberry Bliss was a bit camera shy, except for the close up)
  • Adhesive Foam Strips lift the Copper Glimmer letters up a bit, creating more interest for the eye

Sunshine Wishes Congrats Card

These thinlit dies, Sunshine Wishes, have been around for a couple years and I just LOVE them! I love the font of the script as well as the other shapes (heart, flower and butterfly) included in the set. This on definitely one of my “go-to” items in my stash of crafting tools.

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge this week it is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge, I like these challenges because the design is done for me…all I have to do is add my favorites and I have a great card in a short time. If you are like me, the design phase takes the most time.

I love the simplicity and timelessness of this sketch, it could be used for every occasion. Seems to me that the options are endless. Want to see what I came up with?

Stampin' Up! Sunshine Wishes Congrats card created for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge featuring Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and Designer Series Paper. For details and instructions, click through to my blog #CrackedPotStamper #stampinup #CongratsCard #SunshineWishes

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

  • Paper:
    • Garden Green: 4-1/4″ x 11″ card base, 1/2″ x 4-1/8″, scrap for “congrats”
    • Powder Pink: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
    • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper: 2″ x 4″
    • 2017-2019 In Color Designer Series Paper: 3-1/4″ x 4″
    • Vellum: 1″ x 5-1/2″
    • Gold Glimmer Paper: scrap for heart
  • Accessories: Linen Thread, Metallic Pearls
  • Tools: Big Shot, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies
  • Adhesive: SNAIL, Glue Dots
It’s All in the Details:

I love how all the elements came together but my favorite part how the “congrats” is tucked under the Linen Thread in a few places. I did this for a couple reasons…1) it helped hold it in place without using a lot of adhesive and 2) it adds interest being woven into the thread.
