October 2020 - Kylie’s International Stampin’ Up Blog Highlights

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today, I am super-excited to be sharing my card for Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Stampin’ Up!® Blog Highlights

This is such a fun monthly event and you are able to vote for me and my card! The top ten winners will take part in an international blog hop later this month. 

The theme for this event is Thank You. Two simple words that truly mean SO much! It is a good reminder to send out more cards in appreciation those that help, encourage, motivate and support us in our lives. 

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my card below, along with a full supply list at the very end of this post. 

Color Combo:
If you have visited me recently, it’s not a surprise that I am absolutely SMITTEN with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I just love the mix of pattern and color in this pack, so perfect for so many different occasions. I decided to break one one of my all-time favorite fall stamp sets for a bright and happy card in non-traditional fall colors. Another cool thing is that the Plaid Tidings DSP is on sale this month for an additional 15% off. Whoo hoo! 

The Gather Together stamp set and coordinating Gathered Leaves Dies are probably one of my favorite sets to use for fall cards. You can’t go wrong with leaves and pumpkins, right? I especially love the sentiments in this set, which are perfect to send a little smile across the miles. Now, I’m ALL about the gorgeous rich colors of the fall season, but am a “brights” girl by nature. So, I thought it would be fun to mix it up a little with this color combo. The plaid really ties it all together, don’t you think? 
Card Measurements and Details: 
  • Melon Mambo Card Base - 4 1/4” x 11”, scored at 5 1/2” 
  • Rich Razzleberry Cardstock - 4” x 5 1/4”

  • Bumblebee Cardstock - scrap to stamp leaf in Bumblebee ink and die cut using Gathered Leaves Dies, accent the leaf with Wink of Stella for added sparkle, if desired

  • Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (inside card) - 1” x 5 1/4” 
Finally, a look inside the card. I added a little strip of of that pretty plaid paper along with a simple stamped image to keep the continuity from the front of the card. I just love the sentiment, too. Perfect to tell someone how thankful you are to have them in your life.
