CAS Fall Fun For The Paper Players

Happy Sunday!  It’s Clean and Simple week at the Paper Players and our amazing Claire is hosting.  She wants us to create a Fun Fall CAS card.  Just a reminder… a CAS card is Clean and Simple with minimal layers, lots of white space and little or no embellishments.

When I think of Fall Fun, I think of leaves falling and leaving their colorful beauty on the ground.  Yes, I’ve spent many years raking leaves, and that was fun, too… most of the time!

I truly enjoy creating CAS cards and this one’s no exception. It didn’t take much effort on my part to decide which stamps and dies to use.  The Love of Leaves stamp set and Stitched Leaves Dies are a favorite.

The texture in my card layer and leaves is easily created using the Dies.  My leaves are stamped with Mossy Meadow, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider ink. I attached my “galling leaves” with Dimensionals and my card was complete.

So, find a Fun Fall stamp set, add some simple texture and create something clean and simple to link up with us over at the Paper Players. 

…the only limitation is your imagination!

Have Fun With Gingerbread & Peppermint

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

If you want to have some colorful and sweet Holiday card making fun, get your hands on the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle.   I enjoyed creating this card so much that I kept wanting to die cut more peppermint swirls. Those who follow my Blog know that I usually keep the frills to a minimum. Today is an exception to my self-imposed rule.  Not only did I die cut peppermint swirls, I added some of the Gingerbread & Peppermint Acrylic Shapes, which are adorable.

This card is a Quick & Easy design.  We paper crafters know that the right products always make the sweetest projects easy.  Along with the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle, I used the Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper, and the Kraft Paper Pack.  The Kraft Paper has a heavier weight than regular DSP. It works beautifully as a card layer and will make a sturdier gift box, bag or tag.  Everything for this card is on page 9 in the Holiday Mini.

If you haven’t taken a look at the sweet products in the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite, you can click here for all the details.

Here’s Today’s Quick How To:

  • Cut a standard A-2 card base and add a Kraft paper layer.
  • I prefer a thin mat layer, but it’s your choice.
  • Cut the angled Real Red layer 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″.
  • The DSP layer is 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.
  • I used my Circles Dies to cut the Real Red and Old Olive circles.
  • The star shaped gingerbread cookies and icing are die cuts from the Gingerbread Dies.
  • The peppermint candies are die cuts from the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP.  See my photo below.

 

  • The sentiment, stamped with Old Olive ink, is on a 1 1/8″ x 3″ Basic White layer.
  • I added a Real Red shadow strip to the bottom of the Basic White layer.
  • I used a few Gingerbread & Peppermint Acryic Shapes just because I couldn’t resist!

So, treat yourself to the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle, add a few sweet Acrylic Shapes and create something delicious to share for the Holidays!

Season’s Blessings For The Paper Players

Happy Sunday!

It’s time for another Paper Players Challenge.  This week, our amazing Ann is hosting a fun Color Challenge.  She chose Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry and Polished Pink plus one more color.  I chose Sahara Sand as my optional color.  It’s a subtle Neutral that works with both warm and cool colors.

My card has lots of layers and a simple basket of blooms.  The layers create the depth needed for this simple design.  Along with this bold color combination, I’m showcasing the Season’s Blessings Bundle which is in the Annual Catalog on page 94. The Bundle includes the Season’s Blessings Stamp Set and the Seasonal Basket Dies. The dies match all of the flower blooms in the stamps.  It’s easy to fill your basket with beautiful stamped and die cut blooms for Christmas, Fall and anything in between.

The crisp, bold colors are perfect for these large blooms and a neutral basket.  Each of the flowers are stamped, die cut and attached with Dimensionals. The mixed sentiment font is perfect for the relaxed look of the blooms in a basket.

So, find a great Bundle, die cut some large flowers, pop them into a basket and say thank you to someone special.  Oh, and don’t forget to link up with us over at the Paper Players. We all love to see your creations.
