Come to Gather and Give Thanks

So my upline, Linda Bauwin, did a team challenge.  She sent us pieces of this-n-that from the new holiday catalog; paper, ribbon, embellishments... and we could use whatever we wanted to make a card.  Here is my project:

I had to show you the close-up first as the full frontal photo does not catch that shimmer from my Wink of Stella pen!  Its one of the best tools to use to add that little something.  Here's the full card.

I am so pleased with the 2019 Holiday catalog.  So many great products and coordinating items.  I chose to use some new and returning items... 

So you may think that my title does not have correct grammar, but that is the name of New Designer Series Papers called "Come To Gather".  Check it out on Page 49 of the Holiday Catalog or click Come To Gather to see the entire product suite.  Great fall items.  I love all the traditional color tones popular during the fall season.  

I chose to stamp "Give Thanks" from Harvest Hellos stamp set in black Stazon ink on wood element.  Stazon is the perfect choice as it is permanent and the color will not bleed.  The wood element looks like a real piece of a limb doesn't it?  Very cool.  The pack comes with other shapes like feathers.

Again, I used Wink or Stella to add shimmer to some of the pumpkins to the Come To Gather designer series paper.

Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper

PicsArt_08-19-04.50.05

I wanted to show you another card using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper.  If you missed my last post showing this paper, check it our HERE as I have added a video!

Both the background and music piece are from this Designer Series paper.  Pressed Petals is so pretty, you can dress it up or leave it plain and add a simple sentiment.  I chose to dress it up. Doesn't this make for a great fall birthday?  Of course, it could be for just about any occasion; retirement, thinking of you, get well, and more. 

The background piece is cut 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 as I just wanted a slim boarder showing the Night of Navy card base.  Standard card base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2.

The music sheet piece is cut 4-1/8 x 2.  

The picture does not do justice for the Gold Foil pieces.  The berry sprigs (in Gold Foil) and leaves (in Mossy Meadow) are from the Frosted Bouquet Dies.  And then I layered the Stitched Nested Label die in Gold Foil as well.  Helps make it stand out a little, don't you think?

My favorite accent used to dress up the card is the piece of Night of Navy ran through one of the dies from the Detailed Lace Dies.  I just adore that die, but all three are pretty great with lots of detail.

A Cool New Product... Check it Out!

Happy Friday everyone.  Hope you all had a great week.  Mine was the same hum-drum week, working my day job, so Fridays are always the highlight of my week. Is that the same for you?

Today I wanted to share a card featuring the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper and.... The NEW Pressed Petals Washi Tape.  Here is the card (you can click on it to bring up larger):

I love this card!  The colors and flowers... OH!  Speaking of flowers.  The Flower, with the metal Designer Elements piece, is made with the NEW PRESSED PETALS WASHI TAPE!  Yes, washi tape.  Each petal is individual and you peal them off the roll and stick them onto your project.  It is so cool.  

The Pressed Petals tape comes in a 2 pack.  The other roll is the ruler looking strip on the right side of the card.  I cut my card base 7-1/2 x 5-1/2 still scoring at 4-1/4 inches.  When you fold on the score line, you see one inch of your inside so I added the piece of washi tape to coordinate. 

For the front of the card, the Pressed Petals designer series paper is cut 5-1/4 x 3.  This also means, you can make several cards.  By cutting at 3 inches, you will get 8 pieces per sheet of designer paper!

Here is an angle picture so you can see the opening a little better:

I completed the card with the Happy Birthday sentiment from a stamp set called 'Here's a Card', stamped in Merry Merlot ink and cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  

Below is the list of products I used on this card.  Let me know if you have any questions and have a great weekend!
