WOW!! Where has this year gone? Here we are in November already and as I bought my turkey last night, the month is almost over.
“For the young the days go fast and the years go slow; for the old the days go slow and the years go fast.”
I wanted to showcase a bit of non traditional yet festive. I think the Whimsy and Wonder Suite and Bright Baubles Bundles does just that.
DETAILS: I cut my card bases to be 4.25” x 5.50” in basic white. I then cut a basic white layer into be 1/4” smaller. Die cut the bauble FIRST. By cutting the babble/ornament first and then embossing allows the dimension of the snowflakes from the Wintry 3D embossing folder to be retained.
I cut my first strip with the holly and last strip with the snowflakes in 3/4” strips to ensure you were able to see the detail of the paper. The glitter strips were cut in 1/4” strips to not take away from the overall card but provide additional medium and pop. I know the Blushing Bride glitter is retired but I tend to hoard my paper and it’s a great match for the Whimsy and Wonder suite. The remaining DSP cut into 1/2” strips.
I then heat embossed my greeting in Silver as my finishing touch. I just love how the card glimmers in the light.

Hello and welcome to our Thanksgiving Stamp It Blog Hop.
How is it even close to Thanksgiving. I’m pretty sure the leaves just started changing a few hours ago. I’ve been busy with procrastinating and getting ready for a craft fair. I’ll keep it pretty short today.
I got the concept from a fellow demonstrator Stephanie Alton. Using the Daisy punches and the Penguin Builder punch, I was able to punch the turkey’s feathers from Harvest Meadows DSP and Cinnamon Cider Cardstock.

I’m so glad you stopped by today. The inspiration for this months card came from a recent shopping trip to the dollar store to purchase supplies for a door hanger project. I wish I had it completed at the time this hop. Though there is die-cutting involved, it’s pretty #simplestamping.
Hello and welcome to this months Stamp It Fall Blog Hop.
Normally when it comes to cards of fall, I tend to rely on old techniques to blend the typical fall colors, Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape you know all those colors. Today I wanted to try and not go back to the o’Faithful toolset – you know the ones, water painters, blending brushes and the trusty sponge dauber.
Using a standard PORTRAIT (flip open from bottom vs. side)
Card base is 5 1/2” tall by 4 1/4” wide in Basic Black.
I’m excited to give you a small introduction to the Whimsy and Wonder Suite that will be available in the July – December Mini Catalog releasing on August 3, 2021. Note: I will update the product links when the catalog goes live.
I have to say, I had mixed feelings about this suite at first. I liked the whimsy trees, I liked some of the color combinations but I wasn’t sure of the combination together. Now I can’t wait to create more with it. The hardest part will be using the DSP. (I’m working on that problem in general Ha-Ha!)
Look at this Holly paper!!
Berries in Blushing Bride
Leaves in Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron
Hint a Holographic trim
How do you get over cutting it, putting adhesive on it and covering it up to display the other side. I could use my paper with a little less stress if they banned double sided DSP.
Here’s a sneak peek at the trees. Originally, I thought I was going to die cut one or more trees to use. So I arranged on my scrap to do all at once. Might see a few more in the background. 😉 As I looked at the other stamps, 🐿 squirrel moment 🐿 I instantly envisioned the word Joy for my tree topper. As my card has had a moment to ‘rest’, I think it needs more around my tree. It might be snow or gems.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek.
