Thankful Slimline

Hey There!

I haven’t done many slimline cards, but they are so fun and cute I’ll need to do more!

This card uses the CTMH September Stamp of the Month, Grateful for this Life, along with paper and stamps from the current seasonal catalog. See the end of this post for a project list if you are interested in duplicating this card!

I used the same technique that I used on THIS page to color the word “Thankful”. I used my MISTI tool to put color on just part of the stamp and stamp on the paper. Then I added another color and stamped again. Each time I wiped the ink off the stamp in places I didn’t want that color to be.

I hope you are enjoying these autumn themed projects as much as I am!

Spinner Interactive Care

Hey There!

Guess what? I’m till doing autumn themed projects using around here!

Today I have an interactive card with a spinning front. Close To My Heart has a Thin Cut die called Card Front Spinner to make these types of cards!

I love how the leaves look like they are blowing in the wind when this wheel is spun.

Autumn Theme Layout

Hey There!

I’m still enjoying these fall stamps from Close To My Heart! For this page I used the title from the September Stamp of the month, Grateful for the Life.

The pumpkins and leaves are from the Autumn is Calling and Pumpkin Spice Cardmaking stamps. I got my color inspiration from both the Pumpkin Spice collection and obviously my sister’s family portrait. This picture was perfect with the colors I had in mind!

The title, Grateful, was created using my MISTI stamping tool. It allowed me to add the different colors on the word exactly where I wanted them. I applied the ink to the stamps and used a paper towel to remove ink from where I’d didn’t want that color to be. I’m so happy with how it turned out!

Check out the other layouts I’ve created using these papers, stamps and colors!

Grateful For This Life Album

Hey There!

I wanted to share the scrapbooking pages I have been working on! I used the prompts on the CTMH September Stamp of the Month, Grateful for this Life to create a 6×8 album. This stamp set is only available through September. Also, you can get it for $5 with a qualifying order! Even better, as one of my VIP’s, you could get it free! Visit my site for details about the VIP program.

I also used the Pumpkin Spice paper collection, with coordinating stamps and colors. Scroll down to the end for the full list of supplies.

I am IN LOVE with the color combinations used in this paper collection. That deep blue, called Harbor, which is brand new combined with the beautiful pinks is just perfect.

Each two page layout was created using a prompt from the SOTM set. I loved having these to help me reflect on what things I am grateful for. As a bonus, it helped me document my fall 2020, which I hadn’t done yet!

If you like these autumn themed pages check out my autumn cards Happy Fall Ian and Grateful For This Life card.

Thanks for taking the time to peek at my creations! I’ll list the products used in case you love these paper, colors and stamps as much as I do!

Happy Fall Ian!

Hey There

There are so many things I adore about the new Close ago My Heart September/October catalog, but this Pumpkin Spice patterned paper is at the top!

I love how is uses traditional orange and reds, but incorporates fun pinks and the new Harbor Exclusive Ink color. That blue works perfect as a fall color!

There are two stamp sets used on this card. The pumpkins are from the Pumpkin Spice Cardmaking stamp. The boy is from the new Buddies line of stamps. He is actually from the new Core Catalog, along with his buddies. His name is Ian. I’m an thrilled they added these boys to go with the Besties girls! Wait to you see their Halloween costumes!!

I’m really enjoying playing with all these fall themed papers and stamps. I’ll have more coming your way soon!

Take a peek at this other fall themed card I created using products from the new catalogs!
