All Around Autumn Wreath

Monday again! I hope you had a good weekend.   I’m ready for the new week.  I spent the entire weekend getting ready for the upcoming Craft Fair in my Community that I’ll be participating in for the first time.  I’m excited and a little stressed but I’m sure it will be fun. I just never know when to stop creating, thus the stress!  The best part of craft fairs for me is chatting with everyone.  Since we’re fairly new in this Community,  I’m looking forward to meeting more of my neighbors.  If you participate in any fairs, does the prep stress you or do you really enjoy it?

Now for the reason you stopped by today…my card share.  I’m still really enjoying the Tidings All Around Bundle along with the Seasonal Wreath stamp set.  However, I’m particularly having a good time with the All Around Wreath Dies.  These dies are great with both the Tidings All Around and Seasonal Wreath stamp sets but they can certainly make wonderful cards on their own.

Stampin Up All Around Wreath Thanksgiving Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I used only the All Around Wreath dies to create this Autumn Wreath.  I cut the large detailed wreath out three times in: Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Old Olive card stock and offset them so that each color was visible.  I then added the smaller leaves in Crumb Cake and Rich Razzleberry card stock and the twigs in Crumb Cake.  The bow was created with the Cajun Craze Baker’s Twine from the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack and Linen Thread.

The sentiment is from the Painted Harvest stamp set and is stamped in Cajun Craze ink.  I used a retired square punch to create the flagged ends of the banners.

I really like the Buffalo Check background for this card.  I stamped it with Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White card stock.  This is one stamp that has proven so useful to have.

The inside sentiment is also from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  The DSP is from the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper collection.

Here are a few other cards I created with the All Around Wreath dies…

CASEing Coast to Coast

Welcome back and if you’re here for the first time, WELCOME!

Are you wondering what the title of today’s post is all about?  I’ve teamed up with another Stampin’ Up demonstrator who lives clear across the country and has become a wonderful friend through the power of  Stampin’ Up! and this little hobby.  Karen Hallam, who lives in California and I (from Pennsylvania) will be tag teaming once a month to CASE a project.  If you’re not familiar with the term “CASEing”, it means Copying and Sharing Everything.  Each month one of us will create a card, while the other will be inspired by some aspect(s) of that card and create their own.

Karen is starting us off with a fabulous card that sparked a lot of inspiration.  HERE’S the link to Karen’s blog for all the card details.

AND here is my CASE…

Stampin Up Country Home Wrapped in Plaid Christmas Card Ideas-Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I was delighted to see that Karen used one of my all-time favorite stamp set, Country Home.  As soon as I saw this, I knew that was going to be what I would copy.  I love the country vibe and versatility of this set.  However, for my case, I chose to create a Christmas card.

Creating Christmas cards is so easy with the classic plaid patterns from Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper. After creating a card layer of Very Vanilla and Shaded Spruce on the Cherry Cobbler card base, I cut a piece of DSP in a diagonal and trimmed it with a strip of Gold Foil for the background.

I used Stampin’ Blends to color the milk can and foliage.  I also used a die from the Bouquet Bunch dies and cut out the gold “twigs” behind the foliage.  I thought this gave it a little bit more shine! The milk can was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas and is stamped in Golden Glitz Delicata ink.

The inside sentiment is from the Toile Christmas stamp set and is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink.

Here are the two cards together.  You can even say that Karen’s diagonal design was more inspiration for my card.

I hope you enjoyed this cross country CASEing post.  Perhaps you’ll even try to case our cards yourself.  If you do, please be sure to share them with us.  We would truly love that!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!

Take care,

A Birth”daisy” Card

Hello there! Mondays are so much more bearable when they are part of a 3-day weekend like today.  I’m still working hard on creating for the couple of Craft Fairs I’m participating in but I did have a chance to create a cheerful birthday card as well.

Stampin Up Daisy Lane Birthday Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I’m not sure if my attempt to turn the daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set into sunflowers was successful or not.  They still look more like daises to me but I think they’re still pretty and cheerful.  I stamped them on Crushed Curry card stock with Crushed Curry ink and punched using the Daisy punch and the medium Daisy punch.  The centers were embossed with Subtle Embossing folder and punched with retired circle punches.  The leaves are actually a flower stamp from the Floral Essence stamp set. I punched them with the coordinating Perennial Flower punch.  Honestly, dies are great but punches are so EASY…if there’s a set with a coordinating punch, I’m there!

Stampin Up Daisy Lane Birthday Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I color coordinated the card using one of the new In-Colors, Rococo Rose.  I haven’t really used this color and Ifound that I like it a lot! The gingham print is from the 6×6 DSP collection and the ribbon is 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon.

The sentiment is from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso ink.

I’ve listed all the products I used on today’s card below and they can all be purchased by clicking on them to go to my online store.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I’ll be back on Wednesday with something new and fun…I hope you’ll come back to check it out!

Take care,

Rosanne

Colorful Seasons Masculine Birthday

Friday is here!  I hope you had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.

I needed a masculine birthday card and decided to make it seasonal also….

Stampin Up Colorful Seasons Masculine Birthday Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup I used the two large leaf dies from the Seasonal Layers dies to create a pretty inset design.  After cutting two open leaves in the woodgrain DSP, I added a sponged background.  The more intricate leaf is cut out in Copper Foil and glued inside the open leaf.  The Copper Foil gives this otherwise simple card a such pretty shine!  The sentiment is from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set.

I wrapped a piece of 1/4″ copper trim around the DSP before adhering it to the card base.
