Have you seen the Buffalo Check stamp by Stampin’ Up!? I just got mine, and I love it! Look at these checks! And because it’s a stamp, you can have checks in every color!
For this card I used Grapefruit Grove ink on the Buffalo Check stamp. It’s a large stamp and you will get an excellent result by using the Stamparatus.
The Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies created the “pumpkin” from Pumpkin Pie card stock. It was then sponged with Bright Copper Shimmer Paint. The photographs don’t show it off well, but the shimmer paint really sparkles! Some Copper Metallic Thread was wrapped in a large circle and attached to the pumpkin up under the leaves.
This stamp is a classic ~ if you don’t have it, you must get it! Click on the picture above to order!
Watch for next week’s
Details to come!
I’m so excited about a brand new beautiful suite of products being released by Stampin’ Up! on November 1st! It’s called Snowflake Showcase. Today I’m showing you just one item from the suite ~ the Snowfall Thinlits Dies.
These dies are gorgeous! And there are 20 dies in the set! For this card I’ve only used 3 of the dies. My favorite one is the large snowflake die and I used it to cut Rose Glimmer Paper. Isn’t it pretty? I used a few other dies to cut the Whisper White leaves.
The background paper is a patterned sheet of Soft Sea Foam from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. These days I’m loving Soft Sea Foam, it goes with everything!! 🙂
Look at this intricate large snowflake, isn’t it gorgeous? Wait until you see the stamps ~ there are two (!) coordinating stamp sets in this suite! Keep coming back, I’ll be showing you more!
Stampin’ Up! Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes can make adorable thank you notes!
For this card I used the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper in Mango Melody as a background. Stripes and circles always look good together!
The Grey Granite “thank you” circle was stamped and then punched with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. Quick and easy, right? You can make a bunch of these cards in no time!

Black and white stripes are classic. They give a fresh and modern look to everything ~ including cards! So how do you create a striped background?
Well, you might use a designer paper that has black and white stripes. But you also might create your own stripes 🙂 Start with a panel of Whisper White card stock 4″ x 5-1/4.” Cut 5 strips of Basic Black card stock to 4″ x 1/2.” Lay them across the white panel at 1/2″ intervals. To get the spacing close to exact (it’s hard to be totally exact!), you can use a few methods. One is to line up your Whisper White panel on our Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper and then line the black strips up accordingly on grid lines, at 1/2″ intervals.
The method I used was to cut another strip of card stock – I chose Daffodil Delight for contrast- at 1/2″ x 5.” This became a guide that I placed between each black strip to make sure the distance between them was 1/2.” It worked well for me. You might even have another way to line up the black strips. If you do, please let me know 🙂
I’m so happy with this card, I just love the black and white. I may be doing it more, so watch out!!
Thanks for stopping by today!
