STAMPIN' UP! OVER THE RAINBOW CARD

Today I'm sharing a card I made that I absolutely love because it is colorful and uplifting.  The stamp set used on the cover is OVER THE RAINBOW by Stampin' Up!  The inside had several layers for multiple signatures and sentiments.  All of the stamps on the inside are SU!



And, looking ahead, I want to let everyone know that WORLD CARD MAKING DAY is this SATURDAY in the US.  I'm participating in a worldwide blog hop that starts on 10/1 in Australia, so that will be 9/30 or tomorrow here. Make sure you return here tomorrow around 5 pm for the tour.

Also, watch for Stampin' Up! specials for the event.  I'll have them here and on my business website HERE.

SU! WITH SYMPATHY - BLOOMING WITH KINDNESS

I made this card for my husband's best bud who's father left this earth earlier this month.  I used the SU! BLOOMING WITH KINDNESS and OCCASIONS ALPHABET by SU!  I love this set and it's ease of use.  One of my all time fave's.
This was stamped with SU! ARCHIVAL BLACK INK (one of my favorite stamp pads) and then watercolored with BLUSHING BRIDE ink. 
Edges were sponged with BLUSHING BRIDE. I added adhesive rhinestones to the sentiment.

NEW SU! COOKIE CUTTER CHRISTMAS CARD

If you check out some of my previous posts, you will see that I have a favoritism for the COOKIE CUTTER BUNDLE by SU!.  Here's a Christmas card using the stamp set and punch. I love the little reindeer nose. One of course, is RUDOLPH.

BRAND NEW SU! HOLIDAY STAMP BUNDLE - CHRISTMAS PINES-FEATURING NEW SU! EMBOSSING GLITTER

I'm very excited about the NEW SU! HOLIDAY CATALOG.  I guess it's about time to start showcasing not only Halloween and Fall Designs but the Christmas ones as well!  Today I'm featuring a card I created using the NEW CHRISTMAS PINES bundle and the NEW REAL RED Embossing Glitter from SU!. I love die cutting and this is definitely a must have set for any holiday or winter crafting. The real red glitter embossing powder is unbelievably shiny.  You really have to see how well it embosses in person.  The embossing powder is also available in EMERALD ENVY.  I have that on an order arriving today and can't wait to try that as well.


I tried to get a better photo of the NOEL that I embossed but the photos just do not capture the glimmer and beauty of the glitter embossing powder. It's magnificent.

SU! REMARKABLE BLOG TOUR FEATURING FALL AND HALLOWEEN

I'm really excited that AUTUMN starts this week. This means candy apples, apple cider, pumpkins, witches and goblins, Halloween and falling leaves.  Halloween is just around the corner.  All of the Remarkables are here on the blog tour to share with you ideas for using the Fall and Halloween sets from the Holiday SU! Catalog.  In particular, my absolute favorite is the goulish grunge.  This is a stamp set that is timeless.  It can be used for more than Halloween. It was first on my list next to Jar of Haunts.  I have also added a fall set using the new CABLE KNIT 3D embossing folder. This is the first such folder released by SU!
This first card uses the GHOULISH GRUNGE and the JAR OF HAUNTS.  I have used the gauze, the brick background and the cobwebs for the background.  I love the mummy and the jar to which I have added the eyeballs.  This set coordinates well with JAR OF LOVE in the main idea book and I actually used the coordinating framelits to die cut the jars and also the top to the jar of eyeballs.  I added gold wink of stella to both of the jars and to the cobwebs.  I used the white chalk writer to color in the ghoulish eyes in the top right hand corner.  I wanted to round the bottom corners so I used my SU! Project Life Corner Rounder. Do you like the orange and black twisted twine?  It's new from SU! in the Holiday Catalog as well.
This card also uses the Jar of Haunts which includes the candy corn stamp.  I stamped the cobwebs from GHOULISH GRUNGE in white in the background.  I die cut the numbers from the large SU! numbers set and the Happy Halloween stamp sentiment is current.
This little scarecrow is adorable.  I have punched him with the NEW COOKIE CUTTER HALLOWEEN stamp set.  So adorable.  I die cut leaves and embossed them and highlighted with white craft ink by SU!.  The gold glimmer leaves adds a nice touch.  I added gold wink of stella to the leaves and the little scarecrow.  I also added an enamel heart shape from the bold brights collection. 
Here's the inside of the card. It's nice to dress that up as well.
Now head on over to Michele Reynold's blog for more Halloween and Fall Fun.
