Stampers Dozen Blog Hop October 2020

October is here and this month the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop October 2020 features a color combination! YAY!  I love when I have a challenge with colors.  Stampin’ Up! has the BEST assortment of colors and this color palette is one of my favorites for fall. My project isn’t necessarily fall, but I love how it turned out and I can already picture creating more cards with this layout for several occasions.

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop October 2020

My project:

As you can see, I did a little color blocking with the colors selected – Early Espresso, Cinnamon Cider, Cherry Cobbler, Bumblebee and Very Vanilla. I love using scraps of paper and then running them through an embossing folder to seal them in place.  I used Stampin’ Blends to color my flower ‘focal point” and topped it with Wink of Stella. Wink of Stella rarely shows in pictures but I promise, it is the perfect finishing touch to many projects I create. I would say it is a favorite, up there with RIBBON!

The Designer Series Paper Sale!

Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper is a favorite item of mine. The artists create some amazing patterns and the colors are to die for! I love when they run a paper sale because I stock up! What about a paper split? Even better priced when the items are 15% off. The paper split is a great way to have a sample of all the paper and it you decided you like a certain packet, you can take advantage of the sale!
