Paper Crafting Blog Hop August All About Suites - Plaid Tidings Suite

Hello and welcome to our August Monthly Blog Hop!  We thank you for joining us for our monthly blog hop this month.  Our theme this month is All About Suites, highlighting all the suites we have in our Annual and New Mini Catalog.  We have talented Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world taking part this month to show you wonderful products and suites from our catalogs.  You may have joined me from Terri's blog and their project was wonderful.  

For my card today I chose to feature the Plaid Tidings Suite in the new Mini Catalog.  It has a beautiful Stamp Set called Celebration Tidings along with a Die Set called Celebration Label Dies.  The papers are amazing and have patterns for all seasons. It also come with some beautiful 3/8" Embroidered Ribbon.  I am using all of these products in my card for you today. 

I started with a card base in Crushed Curry, cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  I then added a thin layer of Pretty Peacock cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  I then added a piece of the Plaid Tidings DSP cut at 4 1/4" x 5" as I wanted that to be the focal point of my card. You will need a scrap of Whisper White to cut out the label, it is the 2nd one counting from inside of the package!  You will also need a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White inside piece if you wish.  

I chose the pumpkins and coordinating leaf bottom stamps for my card today.  I lined both of them up on one stamp and spaced them apart enough to get my sentiment in between!  I used my grid paper to make them straight and then put them on the block.  I stamped it in Memento Black Tuxedo Ink as I wanted to ensure I could use my Stampin' Blends to color them in.  I used the following Stampin' Blends colors to color my label: Light Shaded Spruce for leaves, Dark Mango Melody for leaves/flowers, light and dark Pumpkin Pie for Pumpkins and Dark Crumb Cake for pumpkin Stems.

I then adhered my label using Stampin' Dimensionals.  To finish I used the ribbon that comes in this Suite, the Embroidered Ribbon, but also used the Metallic copper ribbon that comes in the new mini catalog from the Gilded Autumn Suite.  I simply tied them in a knot and adhered them the left top corner with a glue dot.  I added a few cinnamon cider enamel dots as well to finish it off.  Again here is a picture of my card. I hope you enjoy it.

  1. Krissi, I love this card and the DSP! With the cool weather in Central Illinois this morning, I am so ready to create fall cards! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I really like the way you have stamped the greeting between the other two images and the colour coordination really pops. TFS!

  3. Nice card - we're in the middle of a long heat wave here - but fun to start thinking of pumpkins and fall weather.

  4. Great color combo! The ribbon embellishment and cinnamon cider dots are nice touches. Thanks for sharing!
