The October Paper Pumpkin kit is always one of my favourites of the year. It is traditionally a box full of Christmas inspiration & this month was no exception! The kit, aptly named "Joy To The World", included card bases in Crumb Cake & gold with floral die cuts & gold foil words for embellishment. The ink spot this month is Just Jade & the Cherry Cobbler Bakers' Twine made for easy bows. Here's a card made following the instructions - sort of...

Here I am again with a couple more plaid cards! The Plaid Tidings DSP, on sale until the end of October is a fab selection of well, plaid paper! There are colours for every season perfectly coordinated with Stampin' Up! colours. The convenient 6x6" format is perfect for cardmaking. The size provides a enough for at least 2 cards & of course the paper is double sided with a different plaid pattern on each side.
Here I CASE'd a card designed by Tandra Boyer using non-traditional colours (Pretty Peacock & Just Jade) on a 3 3/4" 5" plaid mat embossed with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. I love how all the layers are embossed giving the look of fine fabric.

August is a busy time of year. Even in the midst of a pandemic we are fortunate to live in an area where flowers & vegetables grow in abundance. The sunflowers in my area are spectacular! My neighbours are preserving tomatoes with basil & garlic (I can smell it!) so the approach of autumn is in the air. The warm temperatures have made for spectacular late summer gardens so I was inspired to play with the Jar of Flowers Bundle from the Annual catalogue.

One of the things that I love about paper crafting is how you can customize projects so that they suit your style & skill level. The Forever Greenery suite of products features distinctive stamp images, matching dies, patterned paper & embellishments to up the glam factor.
Here I've created three cards from simple to expert adding layers & embellishments to each card. I've always loved a clean & simple card so this first card lets the stamped images steal the show. Coordinating ink & paper give the simple stamping a clean look.
