Happy October!!! I have to say that this is a month that will be full of stamping goodness here at Stampin’ on the Fly! I have been busy, busy, busy creating loads of stuff to share. Let me give you a sample: Stamps on the Fly (details below) registration starts today; a Stampin’ Addicts Blog Hop starting on Oct. 10th; my monthly Dirty Dozen projects go up on Oct. 15th; and I will be a hostess for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge (see details by clicking the blinking button on my sidebar) on Oct. 30th. Plus my weekly Freshly Made Sketches cards and my monthly Fancy Friday as well. WHEW!!!! Don’t miss anything and make sure you subscribe to my blog now!
Take a look at this awesome sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week! The queen of elegance and layers, Narelle Farrugia, is our sketch hostess this week. It is no wonder that she has created one with lots of layering opportunities! I just love it!
I was finally able to break out this new stamp set, Wondrous Wreath. I know, it is supposed to be for Christmas but wanted to make a fall card. So, not surprisingly, the stamp is versatile enough for that too! I used the Color Me Autumn DSP as a backdrop for the wreath. Then I stamped it using Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze ink. It is so easy to cut out with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits. Stampin’ Up has spoiled us with this one because there are cool tabs to help you line everything up. I punched some flowers out with the Itty Bitty Accents Flower Punch (one of a set of three), doubled them up and added Basic Pearls as a center. The pearls were colored with the darkest Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities. I added a sentiment banner using Good Greetings – an exclusive hostess offering. Then I added a little Fork Bow made from Daffodil Delight Seam Binding. This card was remarkably quick to make because the wreath is so easy!
The whole team continues to amaze me each week with their interpretations of the sketches and this week is no different. Go check them out and be wowed!
Now I’m back to stamping today and I look forward to sharing everything with you. Thanks so much for stopping in today!
