Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue Favourites Crafty Cupcakes Team Blog Hop

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Gemma Clarke -

Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for September 2017. Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products. You are currently visiting Made by Gemma Crafts in the UK and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list. This month our theme is Holiday Catalogue favourites.

For my card today I have chosen to use the Painted Autumn suite which is on page 48 of the Holiday Catalogue. It's such a beautiful suite and the Designer Series Paper is just stunning.

To make my card I stamped and fussy cut some of the leaf and acorn images from the Painted Harvest set. I then decided to tear the DSP for the front, Yes I tore it! I think it softens the edges and gives it a more rustic autumnal feel to go with the Jute Twine which I tied with some Crushed Curry Solid Bakers Twine. For the sentiment I stamped onto a strip of Very Vanilla card and then shaped the ends. For the card base I used Crumb Cake cardstock to make a standard sized card then stamped with Crumb Cake ink the leaves. There is a small dotty stamp in the set so I used this to fill in the gaps in Pear Pizzazz.
