Hello! Happy fall morning! We are 
Coloring Down the Lines 
this week with some beautiful fall colors!!! Love this group of colors!!!

Welcome to hoppers from Helen's blog!!! Glad you are here! Don't forget to keep going to Lizzy's blog next! These colors are worth the trip!!!

Here's my card:

Here is the inspiration photo:

Here are the Stampin' Up! colors:
So this is a fairly simple card. I LOVE this stamp set, but have yet to use it this fall! I don't want it to become "overused"!  Which I know is silly because it's so pretty! So get ready to see it again! lol

The stamp set is For All Things. It can be found in the Annual Catalog! I know everyone is all about the amazing Holiday Catalog, but don't forget the beauties in the Annual Catalog! That big book is good for everything! Plus, you can get your stamp set, card stock & supplies all in the same place!!!

So you are wondering, "Where did she get that sentiment?" Well I'll tell you! It came from my October My Paper Pumpkin kit!!! Don't forget people! When you get My Paper Pumpkin, you get a beautiful original & exclusive stamp set each month!!! Once your kit is finished, you can either order more supplies to make more or use the stamp set elsewhere! I've been doing that a lot lately! There are some very nice stamps in there! Plus, you get your own little Stampin' Spots ink pads!!! I have I think every color!!!  I totally LOVE 
My Paper Pumpkin!!!

Other items used are the Pearl Basic Jewels and a small strip of Crochet Trim!

Hope you like! Now get hoppin'!!!

Happy Stampin'!

I thought I'd keep with the fall look of the inspiration photo. Plus, the colors work great!

 I just love working with this beautiful 
Woodland Textured Embossing Folder! I learned this new trick & thought I'd try it here! See, the tree from Sheltering Tree stamp set (which you can order for 15% off for the next few days!) is in the background! How did she do that you asked! Well, contact me to set up a private class for you & some friends! I'd love to show ya!!!  It's actually relatively simple!!

This week over at 
we are celebrating one of the great traditions of fall-the country fair! Here in New England it's a big thing! Lots of leaves, apples, scarecrows, hay bales, corn stalks, and more!

Here's my country card:

This was kind of fun to  make! It's supposed to be more of a fall scene-one you might see on the way to the fair or at the fair!

The stamp set used is Sprinkles of Life-with A Dozen Thoughts for the sentiment!  I used the stamp set as well as the coordinating Tree Builder punch to cut out the apples, basket & cloud! The fence is simply strips of card stock stamped with the Hardwood background stamp & embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder!

The cool thing here is the background paper is froms the Season of Cheer DSP pack! I love when I can use holiday type items on non-holiday spots!!!! It works perfectly for a "sky" effect!

The apples are blinged up a bit with some Crystal Effects, and the little clothespin comes from a past My Paper Pumpkin kit. The beautiful ribbon is from the Holiday Catalog!!!!

So hope this week's entry brought you to the fair!!! Now go over to 
The Paper Plunge & see who else you meet at the fair!

Happy Stampin'!

Hey all! Fall is finally here in New England. Pretty, yes. Chilly, yes! Perfect time to think about 
Coloring Down the Lines!
It's stampin' time!!!

You may be here from Helen's blog! When you are finished here hop on over to Lizzy's blog! Keep going & enjoy!!!!

So here's my card this week:

Here is the inspiration photo:

Here are the Stampin' Up! colors:
So this is kind of a fun, simple little card!  I love these colors together, but couldn't for the life of me come up with something! Then I remembered my "cherry" stamp set! This is a fun set! Even the name is fun-Giggle Greetings!

I'm so glad I was able to use my Cherry on Top DSP! I love to use DSP on a card, but often times with these color challenges it's not possible. So this worked perfectly for this card! Adds a fun dimension!

So I know purple cherries are pushing it just a bit,  but I think they work!  For bling-and you KNOW I need bling-I used a bit of Crystal Effects & just dabbed it around the DSP a bit. I think it adds just the right amount of bling!

So hope you enjoyed! I really like this little card!

Happy Stampin'!

This week over at 
we are getting ready for the "haunt"! The spookiest night of the year-Halloween!!!

Here's what I got:

The new Holiday Catalog makes creating those fall occasion cards so easy! It's such an amazing catalog! If you follow my blog, you'll see lots of this stamp set-Among the Branches! It's so versatile & the perfect set to just add a nice sentiment with some design around it. Not too fancy, but great!!!

This card was created for a swap with my team. Hope they like it!  Other items used are the a-maz-ing Spider Web Doilies and the super new 
Black Glimmer Paper! All in the Holiday Catalog! Oh, and notice the corners? That's using the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch! Wait until you get your hands on that baby! Luv it!!!!!

So go pop over to The Paper Plunge & get spooked out-I mean some Halloween ideas!!! lol Our Design Team will "haunt" you!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!

Here we are in October! Another 
Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop 
is among us!!!  Wow is this year flying!!! Our creations already reflect the fall!!!  As lovely as it can be here in New England, I miss my flip-flops!!! lol

So here's my Fall card:

A little non-traditional in the color scheme! But I wanted to feature this beautiful DSP Pack called Winter Wonderland Specialty paper!  And I thought the pine cones brought it into the fall thing!

I kept if fairly monochromatic so the paper would "pop". The gold & black are just lovely together. Plus, this DSP has a nice "sheen" to it!

The sentiment is from the versatile Among the Branches set. I have used it a ton this season so far, & plan to keep it going. It's a perfect all-fall-occasion set!

I am having a blast with my Spider Web Doilies! I've used them for so many things! This time I thought they brought out some interest on the card.  After all, these are not just Halloween based!  

There is some of our wonderful Gold Cording Trim hanging in there. And a bit of Gold Dazzling Details to bling it up because I'm that kinda girl! Simple yet effective!

So I truly hope you enjoy! Now keep hopping over to Megan's blog! Just click on the image below or on her name! Then keep going until you get back to where you started!  It's always nice to leave a comment! Until next month...

Happy Stamping'!

blog hop!!!!

Lizzy's blog-then keep going until you get back to where you started! Lots of fun here!

Here's my card this week:

Here's the inspiration photo:

Here are the Stampin' Up! colors:
I thought these colors let to a sort of masculine card. Always looking for one of those! Plus, it's "fall-ish".  So I pulled out my The Wilderness Awaits Stamp set & created! I love these rustic, outdoors-ey kind of stamp sets! We live in the country so it works!  

The leaf in the corner is from the infamous Lovely as a Tree!  And oh how I love this Woodland embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog! I sure hope that one carries over! I know it's become quite popular!!!

Now go hop around & see what everyone else has done with these great colors!!!! See you again soon!

Happy Stampin'!!!
