Recent Creations: Autumn in the Craft Room

In preparation for the upcoming January-June Mini Catalogue, I decided to use up the last bits of some of my Designer Series Paper packs. Here are the last cards with Ornate Garden:

 

 

And the last cards with Brightly Gleaming – which is NOT just for Christmas cards!

The last cards with now-retired papers Parisian Beauty, Peaceful Poppies, and Flowering Foils:

I absolutely love the Forever Greenery paper, and I bought an extra pack of it during last month’s DSP sale. This isn’t the last of that pack – I’ve got lots left still, which is why I felt I could make these lushly layered cards. I made 20 of each!

Then my Product Purchase Premiere arrived (that’s an exclusive pre-order open to demonstrators who attended OnStage). I ordered the gorgeous Fine Art Floral paper and whipped up some of these handy post-it note holders.

Thanks for stopping by to see my projects! If you’re interested in buying any of the supplies needed to create your own, have a look at the shopping list below. Take care and Happy Stampin’!

As You See It Challenge: Elements of Three

This week I’m participating in the “As You See It” Challenge. These weekly challenges are meant to inspire creativity and encourage participants to interpret the theme as they wish. Anyone is welcome to participate!

This week’s theme is “Elements of Three”, meaning that all participants need to have three of “something” on their card. And to make it more fun, it’s a speed challenge, with only ten minutes to complete the card! No time to go back and re-create anything if it doesn’t turn out the way you imagined … just COMMIT and keep moving forward!

For my card, I knew I wanted to use the Forever Fern stamp set (my first time inking up this set!), and I knew I wanted to use bright, unexpected colours. I got my inkpads and cardstock ready, then started the timer and hoped for the best … and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out!

I just love the textured look of these Distinktive stamps, don’t you? And I had just enough time to add some speckles on the card front and the sentiment, after punching it out with my Lovely Labels Pick-a-Punch. My time to complete this card was 9:39 (whew!).

I hope you enjoyed my project! Don’t forget to click on the image below so you can visit the other blogs and see their “elements of three” projects. If you like my project, you can see the products I used in the shopping list at the bottom of the post.
