Come to Gather Wiggle Worm


Hi Stampers!  Today I'm sharing with you a couple of cards I made to share during my Facebook Live yesterday.   I tend to get in a rut while making cards, using primarily a Designer Series Paper's coordinating stamp set with the paper.  For my live this week I challenged myself to mix it up a little bit.  I used the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog with the Wiggle Worm bundle from the Annual Catalog.

Here is the video from yesterday:

Kre8tors Blog Hop: Fall


Welcome to this month's Kre8tors Blog Hop! As you hop through the list of blogs, you will find projects from Stampin' Up! demonstrators with different levels of experience, sharing what we love - creating!  At the end of my post you will find the full list of participants.  Just click on the 'next' button to continue on the hop to Pia's blog.

This month's theme is Fall.  And it just so happens that one of my favorite suites from this years's Holiday Catalog is the Come to Gather suite which fits perfectly with the theme for this hop.



I love the rich deep colors of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper!  For the background of this card I used the Merry Merlot print and brought in a few additional colors: Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Pumpkin Pie.



The focal point on this card came together easily with the Gathered Leaves Dies, Sprig punch and Holiday Rhinestones.  The larger leaf was first stamped in Crumb Cake (2nd generation) and then the sentiment in Merry Merlot before die cutting.  I added a few Holiday Rhinestones for just a little bling.  There is such a great variety of colors in this rhinestone pack that you will find yourself adding them to every project this holiday season!



Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today!  I'm so glad you stopped by.  Please take a moment to follow my blog while you are here so you don't miss any posts!  Be sure to use the Next button blow to continue on the hop.  I know you're not going to want to miss out on what Pia has to share with you!

Gather Together Treat Box and Card


Since autumn is one of my favorite seasons, it would stand to reason that Stampin' Up! autumn-themed suite would be the first that I add to my order from the Holiday Catalog.  This year's Come to Gather Suite is absolutely gorgeous!  I love the deep rich tones of the Pretty Peacock, Cajun Craze, and Merry Merlot (among other.) colors combination.  When this paper arrived, I couldn't wait to dig in and create something special.


This card is really pretty simple.  I didn't want to add to much on top of this beautiful paper and cover up the design.  I added two die cut and embossed leaves in Pretty Peacock and Pear Pizzazz, along with the stamped sentiment and the Old Olive & Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon.  This ribbon isn't part of the suite but it goes perfectly with the paper!


My second project is a Teat Box.  I made this pizza-style box the perfect size to hold 4 Hershey Nuggets.  And it was so easy to make!  Check out my Facebook Live from 9/18/2019 for directions (check the description for the correct measurements - oops!) and a demonstration on how to put it together.


One thing I like to create at Thanksgiving is a small table favor for each person with a small candy or chocolate with it.  I think this box would be perfect for that!
