This gorgeous Fall card showcases three stamp sets – Magical Meadow (162134); Botanical Layers (158912), So Sincere (162283)!  I just love the mix of colors (Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, and Cajun Craze)! What are your favorite Fall color combinations?

Measurements: 

  • Pecan Pie:  8 ½” x 5 ½”
  • Cajun Craze: 4 ¼” x 3 ¼”
  • Very Vanilla:  3” x 4”; 5” x 3 ¾”, 1” strip
  • Crushed Curry:  1 ½” strip
  • Let’s Go Fishing DSP:  4 ½” x 3 ½”
  • Pecan Pie Ribbon: 6”
  • Linen Thread:  11”

Instructions:

  1. Score and fold the Pecan Pie cardstock for your card base.
  2. Using Stampin’ Write Markers, color directly on the berry stamp. Use Old Olive for the leaves and stems, color in the entire berry with Pumpkin Pie and then add a little Cherry Cobbler along the base and top of each berry.  Repeat these steps as you stamp the berries to create a vine of them.
  3. Stamping off first, stamp the leaves from Botanical Layers using Crushed Curry. Stamping off again, use additional leaves from Magical Meadow with Crumb Cake and stamp along the edges to fill in blank spots.
  4. Wrap and adhere the Pecan Pie Bordered Ribbon along the right side. Adhere this Very Vanilla panel to the Cajun Craze.  Tie a bow using the linen thread.   Adhere the Let’s Go Fishing DSP to the front and then add this stamped panel using dimensionals.
  5. Stamp the greeting of your choice using Cajun Craze on the 1” strip. Punch using the Modern Oval Punch.  Punch a piece of Crushed Curry and adhere these together.  Add to the front using dimensionals.
  6. Add three Speckled Dots to the front.
  7. Stamp the inside and envelope to match.

Create a Card with Laura Milligan using Winter Owls by Stampin’ Up!

Create a Card with Laura Milligan using Winter Owls by Stampin’ Up!

Video Tutorial With Laura Milligan - Create a card with the Winter Owls Bundle from Stampin' Up!

Oh how I love the WInter Owls bundle in our current Mini Catalog!   I have combined the beautiful, detailed die cut owl with the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper (you can find it in our online exclusives in my Online Store)
For the moon, I used the Deckled Circle dies and a piece of the Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper – I thought the subtle design looked like the man in the moon!  The star of the show of course is the owl – complete with silver foil on her wings.
Here is the recording of my Facebook Live –

A Trio of Cards with Different Stampin’ Up! Products Using the Same Layout

A Trio of Cards with Different Stampin’ Up! Products Using the Same Layout

A Trio of cards using the same layout and different Stampin' Up! Products
Today I am sharing three different cards that use the same simple layout!  I did this for one card and then wanted to keep using this layout!  It’s so quick and easy!!!  Truly, you could use this layout for about any stamp set/bundle you own!
  • Start with your card base
  • Pick a panel of 4″ x 5 1/4″ cardstock or Designer Series Patterned Paper.  You can add some embossing with an embossing folder if you wish
  • Select 2 different pieces of Designer Series Paper or Specialty Paper and attach at an angle.  I used both 1/2″ and 1/4″ widths.  Determine what orientation you want – vertical or horizontal – that will determine where you attach these strips.
  • Trim off excess angled paper
  • Create your focal point – words, leaves, twine, sprigs etc!
  • Attach to card front and you have a quick, easy card you will be proud to send!
Here is the recording of my Facebook Live –
This card features all new products from the Winter Meadow Suite in our Sept- Dec Mini Catalog –
This next card features the Autumn Harvest Suite – the embossing folder is called Leaf Fall and can be found in the Online Exclusives section of my online store.
For the third card, I changed the orientation of the card and used the Masterfully Made DSP and a new bundle called Heartfelt Hexagon for my focal point.
This bundle is one of the bundles that will be featured in our Oct 7 World Card Making Event!  Have you registered yet?  It’s a free event and will be a fun crafty time, but you do need to register!   Here’s a link to register:  WORLD CARD MAKING DAY! 
You can purchase the Heartfelt Hexagon Bundle by simply clicking below where all the products are listed.  I’d so appreciate your order!
Which is your favorite card of these three? If I had to pick one, I would pick the Autumn themed card – maybe just because it’s that time of year!  Which would you pick?

FREE TUTORIALS- I send out Weekend Inspiration every weekend that includes a handful of Card Projects with tutorials and supply lists – and yes they are free!  The first card on today’s post is one of the project tutorials!   I send these out to all who are on my email list.  Interested in getting these project sheets?  Simply subscribe to my email list click here:

Celebrating the Season with the NEW Graceful Deer

Celebrating the Season with the NEW Graceful Deer

Create a card with the Graceful Deer Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin Video Tutorial
I love the simpicity of the new Graceful Deer stamp set!  It just makes me feel a sense of peace.  The stamp set is large – it is designed to fill the entire card front – but I used just a part of it for my card today.  I  inked and stamped just part of it and then die cut the part I wanted with the Nested Essentials dies.   I die cut the same size die with Poppy Parade cardstock and off set them for my card.
The background paper for this card uses the One Horse Open Sleigh DSP – don’t see it in the catalog? That’s because it is an Online Exclusive – you can see them only online in my store!   The snowflakes are also an Online Exclusive.
A simple, yet pretty card!

A Grateful Card with the All About Autumn Suite Collection

A Grateful Card with the All About Autumn Suite Collection

Video Tutorial Facebook Live -Create a grateful card with the All About Autumn Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan
  I did an extra Facebook Live this week – again geaturing the All About Autumn Suite.  So pretty and makes me so ready for fall!
Here’s a look at the products in the suite:
I’m not sure which part(s) of this suite is my favorite – but I do love the DSP – it is amazing – and it is the focus of the card I’m featuring today.  I love pumpkins and gourds and  I guess that’s why I love this dsp!
Here is the recording of my Facebook Live –
Video Tutorial Facebook Live -Create a grateful card with the All About Autumn Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan
Really the only measurement needed for this card is the dsp – which is cut 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ – it fills the entire card front.  The rest of the components of the card are die cut!
It goes togheter quickly once all the die cutting is done.  Ink used is Cajun Craze.
Are you ready for fall?  Later today I will be releasing my September Class to Go –  it’s a great deal! So watch for the details – and I will have an Early Bird Special for those that register right away!  YAY!
