Just in CASE - Falling Flowers Stamp Set

BB JUST IN CASE

Okay, what was I thinking when I decided to CASE this card.   While it was a blast to make the PDF Tutorial Directions were a nightmare LOL.

This really was fun to make all the layers and sponging.  

Years ago when I first became a demonstrator I had a Mom and 4 daughters who all stamped.   They actually had been stamping way longer than me.  

When they hosted a workshop I was always trying to think of amazing things to show them.  For one of their workshops I came up with three amazing techniques (can't remember what they were as it is 18+ years ago)

As I was sponging the edge of the card they asked: "what are you doing"?

I hesitantly said, "sponging the card".  They were so amazed and excited.   I thought WHAT? I spent hours preparing the other techniques and they were impressed with sponging? Yes, there were and I think of them all every time I sponge a card.  

Happy to say the youngest daughter Amanda has been a demonstrator on my team for several years now.

Color Your World International Blog Hop - Garden in Blooms

International Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

It’s my favorite time of the month...
Color Your World International Blog Hop!  

This month we have some rich colors to play with.  Here in the USA, we are getting ready for Fall, cooler weather and where I live in Minnesota it means the end of colorful flowers and preparing for cold and snow.  

Color Your World International Blog Hop Color Challenge September 2017

This palette is so rich and I hope you will play along with the color challenge this month.  I love to challenge myself and always try to use all the colors in the palette.

I chose the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set for today's color challenge.  

I wanted to hold onto summer a bit longer and I love the effect this stamp set gives with it's subtle stamped image.  

I used some of the Crinkled Seam Binding in the Berry Burst to finish off the card.  I love this ribbon as it is soft, thin, easy to work with and it lays pretty flat for mailing.

I am SO in love with this paper I can't even begin to tell you how much.  Most of you know Calypso Coral is my favorite Stampin' Up! color - yes I do have one favorite color and love all the rest of course LOL.   Rich Razzleberry hasn't been top of my list but the combination of Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry well who knew.   What a marvelous combination.

Bringing in Fall in Style

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddy Saturday, Patsy Here.   I am so grateful for Alison who is my border buddy.  We each create 4 different cards using a particular suite from the Stampin' Up! Catalogs.   This month's suite is the Painted Autumn suite on pages 48-49 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  Bold watercolored images in beautiful autumn colors are what the Painted Autumn Stampin' Up!  suite is all about.  

Painted Harvest stamp set & Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com z

The stamp set that is part of this suite is the Painted Harvest.  It has flowers, leaves, acorn and some great sentiments.  It is a Two-Step stamp set and the wonderful part about two-stop is the incredible dimension you can get. 

The sunflower is Crushed Curry Classic Ink with Pumpkin Pie for the detail and Early Espresso for the center.  The leaves were stamped in Garden Green Classic Ink and punched out with the coordinating Leaf Punch.  The stamp set and punch are part of the Painted Harvest Bundle.  You save 10% when you bundle.
