Day of Thanks for FF0041

Hello and Happy Friday everyone! 
It’s time for a new challenge over at Festive Friday
For #FF0041, our festivity is Patriot Day, which is on September 11th, and memorializes the terror attacks in the United States on that day, and the heroic actions of First Responders and citizens. Pair that with our design element of Metallic, or use either element on its own! 
For my project, I decided to use some new products from he upcoming Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog, which will begin on September 4th. The Day of Thanks stamp set is a wonderful set perfect for celebrating Thanksgiving. I used the feather stamp to create the background on my card using the new Delicata® Celestial Copper Ink Pad. Let’s talk about the font on that sentiment…swoon!! I LOVE a good font and this one is fabulous. The copper ink really makes it pop! 

This was one of the cards we made at my Team Meeting this past week. Everyone loved the metallic ink and the beautiful Fall colors. 

 Today’s Colors: 

To create the little cluster of fall “goodness” I used the pumpkin stamp from the Gather Together stamp set, colored with Stampin’ Blends Markers. Then I die cut the image and also used one of the leaf dies from the Gathered Leaves Dies. I added some Wink of Stella Glitter Brush for a pop of Sparkle. I used the Leaf Punch to add a little bit of Copper Foil and the little “sprig” die is from the Frosted Bouquet Dies, which is available now in the current catalog. 

 Card Measurements: 

  • Cajun Craze Card Base - 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4” 
  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock - 5-1/4” x 4” 
  • Soft Suede Cardstock - 5-1/8” x 3-7/8” 
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock - 1” x 3-3/4” 
  • Scraps od Caju Craze, Pretty Peacock, Copper Foil and Very Vanilla for stamping, punches and dies
  • Very Vanilla (inside card) - 5-1/4” x 4” 
Finally, here is a look inside the card using another sentiment from the Day of Thanks stamp set and a little hint of that fabulous feather.

Green Birthday Butterflies for Facebook Live


Hello everyone! For my Facebook Live video this week, I featured fun and easy butterfly birthday card. To check out the video for how this card was made click here: Verdant Garden Facebook Live

Every Wednesday at 12:00 PM CST, I share a new project tutorial over on my Stampin’ Anne Facebook Page. Please join me and if you can’t make it Live, you can always watch the replay. Also, I’d like to invite you to join my Stampin’ Anne Facebook Group for giveaways and exclusive projects. Everyone is welcome!
This card was actually one of my team swap cards for the month. We had a “Color Trios” theme so it was fun to step out of my usual color comfort zone with this trio of greens. I got the inspiration to pair the butterflies with the Verdant Garden stamp set from another demonstrator on Pinterest. I’m so sorry I can’t remember her name. 

This card uses three different stamp sets: Verdant Garden, Butterfly Gala and one of my favorite sets Magnolia Blooms. Magnolia Blooms is like a mini version of the larger Magnolia Lane stamp set in the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. This smaller stamp set is an amazing value and is very versatile. You can order it HERE

Today’s Colors: 

This card comes together really quickly and truly the most time consuming part is heat embossing the butterflies. If you didn’t want to heat emboss them, you could always just stamp them in Soft Sea Foam ink and dress them up with some Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add some sparkle and shine. 

Card Measurements: 
  • Mossy Meadow Card Base - 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2” 
  • Soft Sea Foam Cardstock - 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Whisper White Cardstock - 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” 
  • Garden Lane Designer Series Paper - 2” x 5-1/8” 
  • Scraps of Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White Cardstock for stamping, punches and dies
  • Whisper White Cardstock (inside card) - 4” x 5-1/4” 
Finally, a peek inside the card with some simple stamped images and space for a handwritten note. 

I hope you enjoyed this card using the Verdant Garden / Magnolia Blooms / Butterfly Gala stamp sets! Once again, here is the link to watch the Facebook Live video: Verdant Garden Facebook Live.
