Happy Holidays Fun!

Festive Phrases Happy Holidays Jackie Diediker Stampin UpGood morning! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! This past weekend I got the chance to be a vendor at a local crop and it was a wonderful day! I love socializing with fellow crafters. Plus, no crop is complete without a fun make and take!

Checkout one of the two card options we had today. This darling elf is part of the Festive Phrases stamp set and of course we pulled out our new Stampin’ Blends! Unless you’ve worked with them, you don’t know how easy they are to use. I loved being able to show different ladies and kids how fun and easy it can be to color. Plus, its never too early to get started on Holiday cards!

I used just a bit of the Quilted Christmas 6×6 Designer Series Paper combined with the Real Red image layering and the Old Olive card base. Plus, every card needs a touch of ribbon. The Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon was that missing piece.

Hopefully you enjoyed my creation for today. I hope you have a fun filled week!

Autumn Kindness

Painted Harvest Thanks Jackie Diediker Stampin UpThis weekend I got the chance to play along with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge TTTC019. Each week the fabulous team at Tic Tac Toe Challenge shares a new board to design for and the best part is that there are so many possibilities in this particular challenge! I wanted to create something that gave thanks, and this sentiment starting with Your Kindness seemed fitting.

I decided to create a card following the bottom line of the current tic tac toe board. The items fall, pumpkin, and autumn all come together in my card.

This gorgeous Autumn Harvest Desinger Series Paper has been so hard to keep cutting into, especially this pretty pumpkin paper. I had to bite the bullet and cut into this paper this weekend. Heck, pumpkin season won’t last forever and this paper deserves to be used just like the rest of my DSP.

These orange colors throughout this DSP really screams fall to me as do the colors I choose to work with. I love the vibrantly tones of the Tangerine Tango cardstock with the mounting layer in Peekaboo Peach offset.

The sentiment from the Autumn Harvest stamp set was made into a tag from a 2″ wide strip of Very Vanilla cardstock. The top of the tag was punched with our Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the bottom portion was punched from the Banner Triple Punch. Combining these two punches together makes for so many possible tag creations and accents.

The Peekaboo Peach die cut created by using one of the Seasonal Layers Thinlit Dies adds that extra pop. These dies have such a large range of options, but this delicate leaf was just that finishing touch this card needed.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hopefully you enjoyed my autumn card featuring so many of our wonderful products. Be sure to keep stopping by for whatever I may share next!
