Fond Of Autumn stamp set

Hi again friends,

Firstly, I am having a few weeks off so unfortunately I won’t have any cards for the blog till the end of the month after today.

I have made a third card using the Fond Of Autumn bundle (#159838). Each of these cards are totally different so it’s great to be able to get variety from a set. I have paired this with the wreath die from the Natural Prints dies (#158800).




The flowers & leaves from the Fond Of Autumn stamp set (#160266) were stamped on Basic White card (#159228) with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). These were coloured with Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends (#159224), Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends (#159220) and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (#154883).

The sentiment and banner is from the same stamp set and I used Daffodil Delight (#147094) and Sweet Sorbet inks (#159216). The banner, flowers & leaves were cut with the Autumn Bouquet dies (#159837).

The Basic White card front was dry embossed with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder (#158804). This was matted with Sweet Sorbet card (#159266), then attached to the Basic White base card.

The Wreath was cut from Daffodil Delight card (#121680) backed with Adhesive Sheet (#152334) which makes this detailed wreath easy to attach to the card. The flowers and banner were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and the leaves with Mini Glue Dots (#103683).

Autumn Bouquet Dies

Hello friends,

I am using the Fond Of Autumn bundle (#159838) again today. The Autumn Bouquet Dies (#159837) have 2 larger dies that cut the floral image in 2 different ways. One die cuts the whole image like I used on yesterdays card. The other die cuts the image in 4 parts as shown below.



I chose only the flowers and the 2 sets of leaves for todays card.



The image from the Fond Of Autumn stamp set (#160266) was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). The Stampin’ Blends used to colour this are Pale Papaya (#155519), Pumpkin Pie (#154897), Mossy Meadow (#154890), Old Olive (#154892) and Daffodil Delight (#154883).

I dry embossed the Pale Papaya card (#155669) with the Gingham Embossing Folder (#157627) and matted this with Basic Black card (#121688). The base card is Basic White (#159228).

The frame is cut with a die from the Fabulous Frames (#159163) using the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper (#159237). This was glued to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755).  Basic White card was used for the inside of the frame. “Thank You” from the Fond Of Autumn stamp set was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The 2 sets of leaves were attached with Mini Glue Dots (#103683) and the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The embellishments are from the 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds (#159185).

Fond Of Autumn Bundle

Hi crafty friends,

I have just received the Fond Of Autumn Bundle (#159838) and couldn't wait to play with it.




I stamped the image from the Fond Of Autumn stamp set (#160266) on Basic White card (#159228) with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). The Stampin’ Blends used to colour this are Soft Succulent (#155521), Mossy Meadow (#154890), Granny Apple Green (#154885), Daffodil Delight (#154883), Crumb Cake (#154882) and Poppy Parade (#154958). I used the Clear Wink Of Stella (#141897) to add some sparkle.

The sentiment and banner are also from the same stamp set. The banner was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and the sentiment with Crushed Curry ink (#147087). As this stamp set is photopolymer I was able to curved the sentiment to fit the curve of the banner.

I cut the detailed cut-out on the Crushed Curry card (#131288), the floral image and banner with dies from the Autumn Bouquet dies (#159837). The stamped image & banner were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Festive Pearls (#159963) were added to the banner & flower centres. The base card is Basic White.

Wild & Sweet

Hi stamping friends,

As an Aussie I am so pleased to have this cute koala as part of the Wild & Sweet stamp set (#158775). We have the occasional koala on our property which is always very exciting to see them just outside our door.




The koala was stamped with Crumb Cake ink (#147116). I used Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends (#154885) for the leaves and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends (#154882) for the branch as well as some Granny Apple Green. I lightly coloured the sky with a Blending Brush (#153611) and Balmy Blue ink (#147105). The koala image and the Mossy Meadow card (#133683) were cut with the Layering Diorama dies (#155565).

For the card front I used Very Vanilla Card (#106550). I dragged one edge of the Soft Sea Foam ink pad (#147102) down the card. The leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set (#152559) were stamped onto the card with Mossy Meadow ink (#147111), Old Olive Ink (#147090) and Pear Pizzazz ink (#147104). Next I dragged the VersaMark pad (#102283) twice down the card to cover the entire card. Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155554) was sprinkled over the entire card, then set with the Heat Tool (#129056). This gives a lovely shine over the whole card.

“Hello” is from the Artistically Inked stamp set (#154542) and stamped with Mossy Meadow ink. A Beautiful Shapes Die (#158046) was used to cut the sentiment. The koala & sentiment were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Texture Chic

Hello everyone,

I love the elegance of the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper (#158808). This paper has gold designs on one side of each sheet and the other sides have a beautiful range of designs which co-ordinate with the Season Of Chic stamp set (#158810). I have used the beautiful shells for this card.





The DSP was matted with Petal Pink card (#147009). I cut another piece of DSP with a Layering Diorama Die (#155565) and attached this to the card front. I backed a piece of Basic White card (#159228) with Adhesive Sheet (#152334) and cut this with a die from the Chic dies (#158815), then adhered it to the card. The base card is Basic White.

I stamped the 2 shells from the Season Of Chic stamp set, one on Basic White card and the 2nd on Petal Pink card using Petal Pink ink (#147108). These shells and the Gold Foil shells from the Brushed Metallic cardstock (#153524) were cut with the Chic dies. 

The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped with Petal Pink ink. The circles were cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies (#159183). The sentiment and one of the shells were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Cottage Rose

Hi friends,

One of my favourite stamp sets in the Annual catalogue is the Cottage Rose stamp set (#159040) and it’s easy to colour with your favourite colouring tools.




I stamped the floral image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). This ink is great when colouring with Stampin’ Blends as I have done on this card. The Stampin’ Blends used are Starry Sky (#159222) for the flower, Soft Succulent (#155521) for the leaves and Sweet Sorbet (#159224) for the buds. I also used the Color Lifter (#144608) to remove some colour from the flower to give more variation in the colours. I also used the Clear Wink Of Stella (#141897) to add that little bit of sparkle to the flower. This was then cut with a Cottage Flowers Die (#159047).

The Vellum 12”x12” Layering Design (#157764) was matted with Starry Sky card (#159264). I attached this with Mini Glue Dots (#103683) on the 4 corners then added the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots (#159186) on top as the glue dots will show through the vellum.

I wrapped the Starry Sky Metallic Woven Ribbon (#159198) around the card front before attaching this to the Basic White card base (#159228).

“Happy Birthday” is also from the Cottage Rose stamp set and stamped with Starry Sky ink (#159212). A Frosted Flurry Die (#159811) was used to cut the sentiment. The flower & sentiment were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Daffodil Daydream

Hello friends,

A super easy card today stamping the daffodils onto Designer Series Paper.




The Designer Series Paper is the Hues Of Happiness (#158822). The daffodils from the Daffodil Daydream stamp set (#157786) were stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with the Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155554), then set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The DSP was matted with Basic Black card (#121688) and then attached to the Very Vanilla base card (#106550).

“Best Wishes” from Cottage Rose stamp set (#159040) was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). A die from the Stylish Shapes (#159183) was used to cut the sentiment.

I wrapped the Gold & Vanilla Satin Edged Ribbon (#159555) around the card and attached the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Matt Black Dots (#154284) were added to the card.
