Hi friends! Happy Sunday! We thought this card was the PERFECT card to share the Sunday after STAMPtember® has wrapped, not only because it’s beautiful, colorful, and perfect for the season, but because we really can’t thank you all enough for making STAMPtember® great! We hope you had as much fun as we did! Without further ado, let me welcome back special guest Caly Person with a stunning addition in our Crafty with Caly series showcasing some new Pretty Pink Posh products! Read on for more information and enjoy!
Hi, friends! It’s Caly with you today and I’m excited today’s fall card! The Pretty Pink Posh fall release is full of fun fall products including stamps, layered stencils, embellishments, and dies. Today’s card uses the Fall Basket dies. What I love about this particular die set is the inclusion of other fall images like pumpkins, squash, and foliage!
To make today’s card, I die-cut the barrel using Light Brown Woodgrain cardstock. I swiped
Pumice Stone and Walnut Stain against the grain of the cardstock to give it color before die-cutting the barrel. Then, I deepened the colors with Ground Espresso after die-cutting.
The rest of the images are die-cut using colored cardstock and Copic-colored to add dimension. Be sure to check out the supply list below for the list of colors!
Once all my images were colored, I Ink-blended a white panel using Barn Door, Dried Marigold and Gathered Twigs. Next, I attached my barrel and then worked to fill the barrel and the base with all the colored images.
I finished my card today with the Thanks Script die. I die-cut it in Matte Gold cardstock and adhered it directly to the barrel. Finally, I added some new pearls in Pistachio and Sunset Orange. I just love Pretty Pink Posh embellishments!
I hope you enjoyed this fall card! Thanks so much for visiting today! ~Caly
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Caly for being our guest!
Happy World Card Making Day from Simon Says Stamp—It’s a holiday created just for all of us! Last year we shared this epic video, and it’s too good not to share again!
The best thing about World Card Making Day is not only making cards, but the idea that there are people all over the WORLD making cards, too. These people share our passion for creativity and happy mail. In the spirit of this connective nature and to celebrate our favorite holiday, we’ve compiled a video featuring designers from around the world. Meet your favorite designers, peer into their worlds, and hear what they love about making cards (in 8 different languages)!
How fun was that? And now we want to hear from you… tell us your name, where you live, and what YOU love about card making!
World Card Making Day was created in 2006, and the original purpose was to kick-start the holiday card making season. Chances are you make lots of cards for Christmas, but we all know that those beautiful cards don’t come together in one night. So grab your scissors and adhesives and cardstock and stamps and make some cards today! Your family can fend for themselves, right? You deserve to celebrate.
And of course you are looking for inspiration to get those Christmas cards started, so here are some beautiful projects from Suzy Plantamura, Nicki Baxley, and Barbara Tarayao using some products from our STAMPtember® 2022 release!
