Twisted Ribbon Technique Thank You

Hello stampers,
     Oh my gosh, I've been trying to get the card that was in my head out on paper for 2 days & I just couldn't translate it to paper. So last night I went looking for another idea & found a technique I wanted to try but forgot about, it's called the Twisted Ribbon Technique & I had to go looking for directions & found Diane Hutchinson's video that gave me pretty good instructions. It's a really beautiful way to showcase some of your favorite DSP.
     I started the card off using Basic White Cardstock. For the layers inside & out I used Pacific Point Cardstock, embossing the outside layer with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. For the technique piece, I started with a piece of Basic White Cardstock and then chose the Sun Prints DSP to act as the ribbon *TIP: Use the Silicone Craft Sheet to keep your work space from getting sticky**. I used the Good Feelings Stamp Set for the sentiment using Pacific Point Ink, die cut it using the Seasonal Labels Dies & then colored a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Night Of Navy Stampin' Blends before adhering half of it to the embossed piece.

Hello Harvest Meets Gingham Cottage

Hello stampers,
     I hope everyone had a great weekend! I think I got done everything I had put on my to-do list, plus I got 2 of my foster kittens adopted, now to work on the other 2. It's finally starting to cool down here we've pretty much been in the 80s, I know for a lot of you that isn't cool but it's great when you're tired of the triple digits. 
     As you can see from my post title I brought together pumpkins with gingham. I started with 3 sheets from the Gingham Cottage DSP, took out the pumpkin stamp from the Hello Harvest Stamp Set & stamped it on all 3 colors using Soft Suede Ink. I then die-cut them using the Rustic Pumpkin Dies that come as part of the bundle with the stamp set. For the sentiment, I had to use an old retired set called Pretty Pumpkins as I didn't have any real good Thanksgiving type of sayings & stamped it using Soft Suede Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. On either side of the sentiment I used Champagne Rhinestones. This was then layered on top of So Saffron Cardstock mounted onto a Soft Suede Cardstock base. For the final touch, I added a Linen Thread bow,

Mystery Stamping - Thank You

Hello stampers,
     It's been a while since I've done a Mystery Monday Stamping card. I have all these ideas/tutorials saved on my computer & sometimes I forget to look there for ideas. So I chose to make a card that Sharon Armstrong did in July, you can follow her video HERE.
     For the base of the card, I used Basic White Thick Cardstock. For my colored cardstock, I chose to use Sahara Sand. For the white layer, I used the Stitched Greenery Die with Basic White Cardstock instead of embossing it. The DSP I chose was the Splendid Day Specialty & I specifically cut it so that I could include the ladybug. The sentiment is from the Apple Harvest Stamp Set stamped with Sahara Sand Ink onto Basic White Cardstock then die cut out using the Harvest Dies.

Pretty Prints Thank You Fun Fold

Hello stampers,
     Today's card doesn't feature a lot of stamping but I was really wanting to do to show off the DSP. If you love the Sun Prints DSP with all the beautiful blues, you'll also love Pretty Prints as it gives you several more colors to work with.
     I started this card with a fun book-type fold using Soft Succulent Cardstock, followed by a layer of Pretty Prints DSP. I used the Natural Print Dies to die-cut the word box using Soft Succulent Cardstock & the leaves using Evening Evergreen Cardstock. I decided to use the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set to stamp a sentiment on the word box using Evening Evergreen Ink. Before attaching it to the card I took the Linen Thread, wrapped it around my fingers then attached it to the back of the sentiment along with the leaves. This was then attached to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Perched In A Tree Fun Fold

Hello stampers,
     I have an easy fun fold card that I found on one of  Jackie Bolhuis fun fold videos to share today. I picked up the Perched In A Tree stamp set when the dies were offered for free last month during SAB.
     I stamped the bird from the Perched In A Tree Stamp Set onto Basic White Cardstock using Soft Suede Ink. I colored the bird using Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral & Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends Combo Packs. I thought the coral wasn't the right color I was trying to achieve so I added Pale Papaya over it & it was close but didn't want to keep trying to find the perfect match so I went with what I did, which really isn't too bad. For the DSP, I used the retired Rings Of Love. I chose Crumb Cake Cardstock for the base of my card, added Basic White Cardstock for the inside message & then started to assemble my card. I took a scrap piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock & die-cut it using the Stylish Shapes Dies before stamping it with a sentiment from the set in Soft Suede Ink. I popped up the bird using Stampin' Dimensionals.
