Stamper's Dozen October Blog Hop

Hello Stamping Friends,

It's time for another great blog hop with the Stamper's Dozen. This month we are sharing cards or projects made using the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  I used the coordinating stamp set as well on my card. This is a great card to give to all of your friends this Thanksgiving season to let them know how grateful you are for each of them.

I used the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper as background layer for this card. It is the layer beneath the stamped piece of whisper white cardstock. I stamped three flowers from the Painted Harvest stamp set in the corner of the white cardstock and then stamped the greeting in the open white space. I also stamped one sunflower on a scrap piece of white cardstock along with a few leaves, cut them out, added a few dimensionals and placed it over the other "flat" flowers to add the perfect amount of dimension to the finished card. 

Then I stamped the heartfelt message inside and another flower in the corner to make the inside of the card almost as exciting as the outside. 

Of course (because that's how this brain of mine works), I used the traditional colors for my card but I have seen many great cards made using all different colors and each one is awesome. So, go and try some of them yourself.

Don't forget to continue on the hop to the Bonnie's blog to see what great project she created. Click below.

Fun Fold with the Sisters in Stamping

Hello Stamping Friends,

So glad you decided to join me again. I know I have been a bit absent lately and I hope you accept my apologies. It is a super crazy time in the Yurkanin house right now. It's fall soccer season, back to school season. Yep, Jonah plays junior high soccer and travel soccer in the fall so we are going 6, even 7 days a week with soccer practice or games. And then we're back to school. I'm still subbing this year but there's been a bit of a twist, I'm the long term sub for kindergarten and 1st grade music. Interesting, right? It's a stretch for me as I am not a music certified teacher but I am settling in just nicely and am really enjoying it. The first week of school, I was a nervous wreck, now, it's just what I do and I think I'm doing a pretty good job considering all things.

So things are settling in, junior high soccer is almost over, and I will be back and posting more often. I know you are excited about that and I am too. Today the Sisters in Stamping are sharing cards with fun folds and I love the card I'm sharing with you.

This card was inspired by a swap card I received from my friend Melanie from Canada. She always does the most intricate, amazing projects so I wasn't surprised when the card that one of my stampers wanted to learn how to make was one of Mel's cards. I got busy figuring out the scoring and cutting for this card. Surprisingly enough it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it might be (which made me happy). 

Here it is open.  Neat, right? The whole lot of lovely designer series paper was the starting point for my card. Then added the Garden in Bloom stamp set. I love how soft and soothing this card turned out. The person receiving this card will treasure it for a long time. 

The attention to detail, cut out flowers, layers of cardstock and designer paper and the little fluttering butterfly makes it a gift in itself. The recipient will know jut how special they are to you after they receive this beauty.

Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping for more fun folds.

Thanks for stopping by.
