I created a couple of quick and easy note cards for today’s share using the Vintage Leaves stamp set from Stampin’ Up! My first card is CAS (clean and simple) and the second is a stepped up version of the same card. Let me know what you think!
I stamped the leaf images from Vintage Leaves, in Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon directly onto the Whisper White note card. The sentiment, from Acorny Thank You, is also stamped in Dellightful Dijon in the right corner. A length of Linen Thread was wrapped around the card front a couple of times and then I tied a small bow. A Glue Dot was rolled a little and used to keep the bow in place.
Now for my stepped up version:
I dry embossed a panel of Whisper White in the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and popped it onto the front of the Whisper White Note Card. Next, I stamped the leaves in Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Delightful Dijon onto a panel of Whisper White. I pulled out my Leaflets Framelits and die cut the leaves. Then, I cut a length of Delightful Dijon and Rich Razzleberry 3/8″ Ribbon and a length of Gold Sequin Trim to attach to the leaves with some Gold Baker’s Twine. The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive onto a panel of Whisper White and then die cut with the banner die from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlets. I made a second banner with Old Olive card stock and glued the two together with liquid glue. They are popped onto the front with dimensionals.

Craft Project Central Project
I was asked to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central in October. I will be sharing my project later on this month. Today, I am sharing another designer’s project. Her name is Regina Andari – www.workinouttheinks.
“Basket of Wishes” Scraplings!
There are several interpretations of “scraplings”, and in this tutorial a scrapling is a card (or tag or any other creation) that gets its start from a scrap of cardstock or paper . . . or both! Although the cards in this tutorial get their start from full sizes of cardstock and are presented with exact measurements, the intention is that you will feel inspired to create cards and tags of all shapes and sizes from your stash of scraps. When you need to create a quick card but the scraps all seem too small, think outside the box and use them to create a non-standard sized card. The good news is that scraplings should fit any size (mailable) envelope that you have on hand, and the recipient will enjoy the odd size/shape of the card! This tutorial includes instructions for making a pocket holder that has been custom-designed to perfectly hold the set of “scraplings”. Another thing to love about this tutorial is that it features one set of designer paper and (mostly) one stamp set.
If you would like to see the complete project, and learn how to make it, you’ll want to subscribe for the month of October. With your subscription, you’ll get illustrated, step-by-step instructions for 10 wonderful projects for only $10! You can find out how to gain access to a bonus eleventh project over at Craft Project Central.
