A Very Special 95th Birthday Card

There are not very many people that live into their ninties, but I have a wonderful lady in my life that has.  She is my sister’s grandmother-in-law and the sweetest person you could ever know.  This month she is turning 95 and she has more energy than most people I know. My sister asked me to design a special card for her and this is what I came up with.

A Very Special 95th Birthday Card

The card idea from Anne Hewins at luv2create.typepad.com

I have always loved the Vintage Leaves stamp set but never thought of using pink and purple with it until I saw Anne’s. I added gold accents to mine and really like how it turned out.

Here are the supplies you need to create this.

Happy first day fall!

In honor of the autumnal equanox I thought I would share another card from my favorite Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Vintage Leaves.  You can make so many different kinds of cards with this set such as masculine birthday cards, thank you cards, sympathy cards and blank note cards. To see the other cards I’ve made with this stamp set click HERE or on the Vintage Leaves tag on the sidebar to the right.

Vintage Leaves I am Thankful for you 2

Today’s card is a simple Thank you card using the new Painted Autumn designer series paper. The sentiment is from the new Painted Harvest stamp set. I also embossed the Cajun Craze cardstock for a little extra WOW with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of time to be creative.

The Golden Aspen Leaves of Fall

Vintage Leaves Falling Yellow Aspen

I love the beautiful golden aspen leaves of fall.  I’ll never forget the first time I saw a golden Rocky Mountain fall.  It is so different from the vibrant red and orange fall of the Appalachians.

In October of 2006 my husband and I were driving to the Grand Canyon. Just as we crossed into Arizona from the New Mexico side we stopped for a 3 mile hike on Escudilla Mountain.   At first it was just an ordinary hiking trail through slender white trunks of an aspen grove. But the higher up the trail the more beautiful the forest became.  On this bright blue day sunlight was dancing through the quaking golden aspen leaves that had not fallen yet turning the whole forest into a magical kingdom.  I couldn’t get enough of this dazzling display of God’s spectacular creation. And today every time I see an aspen leaf it takes me back to that beautiful day.

Golden Aspen Leaves on Escudilla Mountain

 

The Vintage Leaves stamp set from Stampin’ Up! has an aspen leaf and I thought it would be fun to try and create a card that captures the beauty of the golden aspen leaves. I used the aspen leaf stamp on Crushed Curry cardstock and accented the card with Fresh Fig. I hope you like it.  All the supplies I used can be purchased in my shop that you can get to by clicking on the images below.

Vintage Leaves Watercolor Background Thank You Card

It may be August but one walk into a local craft store and you’d swear it was October! Pumpkins and leaves and scarecrows! Oh my!

Fall is my favorite time of year and orange is my favorite color.  I’m an October baby and so is it any wonder I’m ready to get my fall on.

Today’s card is brought to you by the Vintage Leaves stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

For the background I used the water color technique I wrote about a few days ago. If you missed it you can see it HERE.

I stamped the leaves on Whisper White cardstock in Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight ink and cut them out using my Big Shot. The “Thank You” sentiment is from the Daisy Delight stamp set.

Vintage Leaves Watercolor Background Thank You Card

Most people find it so much easier to get that wow factor with the focal images cut out and popped up on dimensionals and the Leaflet dies make it so easy.  If you want your leaves to pop you will definitely want to get the Leaflet thinlits along with the stamp set.

All the products I used to make this card are listed below and in my shop. Just click on the picture to get there.
