Beautiful Autumn for Card Class

Beautiful Autumn card using the bundle from stampin up with zoe tant uk demo

I've decided that I really like this type of card with this central panel as you can make it look so varied by either stamping, adding die cuts, some dry embossing with a lovely folder and of course water colouring that you can see in the same type of card in my tantalizing stamper post. 

This version is a card we made in my online class this week. I send kits to everyone and they follow along using what they have at home with the kit I have supplied. It's great fun and we have a lot of chatter and lots of giggles.  We're always open to welcoming more people to the group as it's definitely a case of the more the merrier.  

So I used the colours Terracotta Tile, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso and Soft Suede and stamped lots of images from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn set.  To create the outer splatter patterns I used the corn grain stamp but used second and third generation ink and also used a couple of markers for ink splatter.

 I also added a flourish of Bumblebee gingham ribbon prior to adding my simply stamped sentiment also in the set onto a stitched circle die cut.  

The measurements for this particular card are as follows. 

Card back in Terracotta Tile  14.8 x 10.5cm
Embossed layer in Vanilla 14.3 x 10 cm
Card fold in Terracotta Tile 28.9 x 7cm scored on the long side at 14.8cm
Stamped layer in Vanilla 14.3 x 6.5cm 

The great thing is that you still have room to stamp inside and write sentiments. One of the card club ladies wasn't happy with her embossing layer so she moved the folded panel to one side and that looked great too.  Here are most of the cards.

It's simple to do so I hope you'll have a go. Via my other share you can also link to Linda in my team to see where I got the idea and the beautiful version she did with Forever Fern. 

Have a fabulous weekend and remember to ........
Keep safe and keep stamping.

Ideas for using your Stampin' Up! DSP with The Tantalizing Stampers

Hi and welcome to another Tuesday blog hop and share of all things fun about using Designer Series Papers (DSP) on your projects.  The Tantalising Stampers are sharing ideas every Tuesday in October because Stampin' Up! has a nice discount on selected DSP during October.  You can see all the papers included in the offer and more in my Stampin' Up! Shop.

For my share this week I've used the fun and colourful Plaid Tidings DSP on page 57 of the winter mini catalogue.  Having said colourful I've probably used one of the less bold pieces of 6 x 6" paper because I was making my card for one of the guys.  

I used the Love of Leaves bundle and took one stitched leaf die to create an aperture for my matt layer of DSP to shine through.  I've added a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set and used an off cut to matt that too.

Here I used the die cut leaf shape which comes with a die that just adds the leaf veins taken from the card above.  The left over piece of dsp from the 6 x 6" shape fitted nicely onto my card base and I added some  greenery using the sprig punch. Before adhering the leaf I used a piece of double sided tear and tape to add a randomly looped piece of linen thread.  

Both cards have some enamel dots added for a little more texture.  

Simple but effective card making.  You can find all the materials in my shop.  

Enjoy the hop and all the fabulous ideas from my Tantalizing Team.  

Keep safe and keep stamping
