Three Fall Flower Garden Cards

When we think of Fall, we think of pumpkins, gourds and squash, but there are beautiful Fall flowers too!

I created three lovely cards with that in mind that feature Echinacea, Ranunculus and Mums (or daisies) - all beautiful flowers that are glorious in Fall array.

Fall Flower Garden Cards2

Each card features something unique and different.

On the Ranunculas card I used the Water Color Pencils and then blended the colors together with the Blending Pen.

Measurements for this card:

Early Espresso Card Base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" and die cut with long Contour Scallop die on end (about 3/4" in).

Gingham Cottage DSP – 3 x 5 ½”; 1 ¾ x 5 ½”(inside)

Crumb Cake for Die Cut Scalloped Rectangle

Very Vanilla – 2 5/8 x 3 7/8 for front stamped piece; 2 ¼ x 5 ½” for inside sentiment piece.

Fall flower garden cards ranunculus2

The card below features a flower bouquet and foliage from the Harvest Dies with the Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome. I also die water colored the flowers with our Water Color Pencils and the Blending Pen.

Measurements for this card:

Basic Black Card Stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Gingham Cottage DSP - 5 1/4 x 4"

Scrap piece of Very Vanilla for flowers

Scrap piece of Crumb Cake for grasses

Basic White 5 1/4 x 4" for inside sentiment

Fall flower garden card nature's harvest2

The third card is my favorite. I used the Daisy Garden stamp and Gold Embossing Powder to create this card along with the Distressed Gold Paper to make the pumpkin.

Measurements:

Thick Very Vanilla - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Blackberry Bliss - 5 1/4 x 4"

Basic White for inside sentiment - 5 1/4 x 4"

Cards with Apple Harvest Stamp Set and Layered Strips Card Base

This card recipe is a great way to use up left over strips of paper in a beautiful way! The strips are layered diagonally on the front of the card base which creates a back drop of color and interest. Other layers include vellum, a Basic White circle and the beautiful stamped image from Apple Harvest Stamp Set. I love a card with lots of layers!

Apple harvest cards FB live22

As you can see, there are two cards.  One is a little more stepped up (the one on the left). I'm not sure which one I like better. How about you?

Here is the simpler card:

Isn't it pretty? I love how the black embossed sentiment compliments the other colors.

Here is the other card. Extras include white embossed flowers and the Mini Ruffled Ribbon.

Hello harvest blog hop card2

The Pumpkin was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored with Stampin' Blends (Cajun Craze and Old Olive). The Old Olive was added to some areas of the pumpkin and then I added Cajun Craze blended over the top of it to give the pumpkin a more natural look:

All-Occasion Cards with Perched in a Tree Bundle

Did you know the dies from the Perched in a Tree Bundle are a new FREE Salabration item? I just love this set - The Aspen Tree Dies remind me of the woods and forests where I live. The dies are FREE with an order of $100.00 until August 31st. The link for the Free PDF for my cards is at the end of this post. If you shop with me and place an order of $35.00 or more using host code TUYF6GF7 at checkout I will send you a kit for each of these cards.  Everything will be pre-cut for you to put them together.  You will need stamps and ink. Orders must  be placed by Friday, August 12, 2022 at midnight. If you need help, email me at vernastamps@gmail.com

This set is so versatile for making cards for all occasions - even Christmas! One of the sentiments in the set is "Let Heaven and Nature Sing" which is one of the phrases from the Christmas Carol "Joy to the World." But, let's move onto using it for something else - a thank you, a note of encouragement, or "Happy Birthday."

Perched in a tree faith plain2

The card (above) is a large fun fold card. I used the forest die shape on the front of the card and the lovely Pretty Prints DSP behind it. Again, you will find measurements and supplies in the free PDF.

Perched in a tree fun fold flat2

For the fun fold card above, I used one of the Pretty Prints DSP in Evening Evergreen. As you can see, I did not use the whole die cut forest image, just the middle section of it.

And then the lovely pink card below also has just a portion of the die cut trees. The DSP is from Texture Chic and I love the flecks of gold in it. I've added gold leaves using Distressed Gold DSP and then also embossed the bird with gold embossing powder.

Stair Stepper Card With Trees for Sale Stamp Set and Dies

This stamp set and dies takes me back to a Christmas memory of my childhood.  At Christmas the Boy Scout's tree lot was just down the road - rows of trees to choose from surrounded by strings of yellow bulbs that lit up the dark winter sky. As kids we were so excited to go "help" pick out a Christmas tree! Dad would load it onto the top of our car (or in the trunk), tie it down and away we went. Good times and fun memories!

I tried to re-create a bit of that memory in this Stair Stepper Card. Some of the trees are die cut and some are stamped and then embossed with White Embossing powder to create the snow.

Trees for sail stair step card2

The little trailer looks inviting with the warm yellow in the windows and the sweet wreath on the door.

Here's a side view of the card:

Trees for sale side view2

As you can see there are three "hills" to decorate. On the large back panel I stamped the trees in Shaded Spruce and then stamped the snow in Versamark Ink and added White Embossing Powder. The dog is die cut with Soft Suede card stock.

The middle portion has two die cut trees with the die cut snow layer, and l poles holding the lights.  I added an Iridescent Rhinestone to each bulb to make it look like it was lit. The "Trees for Sale" sign is leaning against two of the die cut trees.

The little camper in the front is all aglow for the holiday.

On the back I stamped the dog and the cut paw prints.  I think they are adorable!

Gift Card Holder With Kindest Gnomes Bundles

It's so easy to make a cute gift card holder with the Kindest Gnomes Bundle.  It's part of the Storybook Gnomes Suite in the July-December Mini Catalog. Included in the Suite (page 42) is beautiful designer series paper, gems, dies, and Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. The dies can be used on some of the designer series paper, like the mushroom houses and some of the gnomes.  So much fun in one suite!

Here are the gift cards:

Kindest Gnome Gift Card Holders2

Aren't they adorable? Just so darn cute!

I die cut the end with one of the Basic Border Dies, but you don't need to.  You could cut it just a little shorter with the trimmer so the DSP shows. 

And here's the inside:

Kindest gnome gift card holder inside2

I used the Decorative Circle Punch to punch out the spot in the center to grab out the gift card.

Measurements for this card:

5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Night of Navy Card Base

8 1/2" x 4 1/4" Balmy Blue (for small card) scored at 2 1/2 and 5 1/2"

Cup of Tea Team Time Cards!

I hosted team time in my studio Saturday, and we had a great time together! We made three projects with the cup of tea bundle - a fun fold card, a "thinking of you" card, and a gift card holder.

The fun fold is very simple, yet pretty:

TEAM TIME TEA FUN FOLD2

and here's what it looks like open:

TEAM TIME TEA FUN FOLD OPEN2

Of course we used the delightful Tea Boutique Designer Series paper. There are such a variety of colors in this DSP and it makes it easy to come up with a variety of different color combinations!

Here's the gift card holder:

TEAM TIME GIFT CARD HOLDER2

Very simple, but cute.  This idea is from a card swap in which Carol Hickman created one similar.

And then the third project is a lovely gray and pink card:

TEAM TIME PINK AND GRAY TEA CARD2

Love the color combo in this one.  Using an Adhesive sheet when I die cut the intricute detailed tea cup overlay made it easy to adhere it to the cup. 

Here's the video tutorial to see how I made these cards:
