Pretty Pinks ~ Two Cards / Two Challenges

Good morning friends ~ It feels like I've been away from my craft room for a long time.  Life was busy and then I got trigger finger in the thumb on my right hand and I couldn't move it at all, paired with lots of pain.  Thankfully after a visit to the orthopedic and a steroid shot in my thumb, it's doing much better.  I can move it again and the pain is subsiding.  Just in time to join some amazing challenges.
Have you seen the photo inspiration for The Card Concept?  Wow, is it stunning!  
I was totally inspired by the pink and cream pumpkins dipped in gold.  My style falls in to the category of "Classy & Elegant" I think... I hope.
I used Pretty Pumpkins from Sunny Studio.  I love the layers these stamps have.  I dipped the smallest pumpkin in gold embossing powder.

I also used the cake pedestal from PTI's Cloche Quarters and a frame from PTI's Boutique Borders ~ Love set.  Sadly, this is discontinued but the frames are timeless and elegant.  The sentiment is from PTI's Penned Elegance and was embossed in gold as well.

This next card was made for the PTI Create Along With Us challenge.  I haven't played along in quite some time so I was happy for the opportunity to join in on the fun using this card from Amy Sheffer as inspiration.
I used the Painted Poinsettia set again along with Seasonal Borders: Winter.  

I stamped a coodinating envelope too, inspired by Heather Nichols and their new set Pleasing Envelopes .

I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Time Out Challenges ~ Colorful

Nut House ~ TupeloDesignsLLC

Hello ~ I've got another fun fall project for you today using products from TupeloDesignsLLC.  I wanted to make a shaped easel card using these stamps and dies from Pink & Main, "Nut House".   
TupeloDesignsLLC recently received the new release from Pink & Main so there's lots of new designs to choose from. 

I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Circles and Dotted Scallop Circles to create the easel card base.  

I stamped and die cut the Nut House images from 80# Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored them in using Copics.  

I got a big kick out of the sentiment in this set "news from the nut house", as I can totally relate to our family being called the "nut house".  I'll be sending this card to my nephew who just started his first year of college out of state.   

I'm sending him some healthy nut mixes and other nut related goodies for him to enjoy.  

I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Animal Antics

I hope you're inspired by todays projects.

Mini Loaf Box Gift Idea ~ TupeloDesignsLLC

Good morning friends ~ I'm ringing in pumpkin season with a sweet gift idea using supplies from TupeloDesignsLLC. 


 I enjoy making sweet breads in mini loaf pans and giving them away to friends and family.  Today's project is so easy and really gives the presentation that "WOW" factor.

I found the mini loaf box directions online but I couldn't find it again to link for this post, but I'm sure if you search it up, you'll find lots of plans to use.


I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Moda Scrap Paper Pack ~ Grand Canyon for the background and Elizabeth Craft Designs PumpkinsAdventure Edges and Garden Notes Ivy Vine to decorate the box.


Make a label using any scalloped circle dies.

I hope you're inspired by todays project.
