Stampin' Blends are coming November 1! Demos were able to preorder and practice with them before they go live for everyone. I colored the rose stamp from Graceful Garden with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive and colored them with Stampin' Blends of the same colors. The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases and is stamped in Old Olive. The cardstock is Whisper White, Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler.

Heidi is this weeks challenge host!
Cherry Cobbler and Dapper Denim are great colors for a guy card.
I used the stamp set One Wild Ride stamping it in Momento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake Ink. I matted it with Dapper Denim and added it to a Cherry Cobbler base. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock twice first with Dapper Denim and again in Cherry Cobbler. I punched the first one out with the Best Badge Punch. The second one I cut out just the banner and added it to the first one. Popped it up with Dimansioals.

Libby is our host this week!
While cleaning up my craft room I found these unused card bases that Stampin Up retired. They fit the challenge theme so I figured I better use them up.
I used the stamp set Birthday Banners. I stamped the candle twice end to end so that I had a tall candle. I pulled my ink color from the colors on the base to stamp both candle and banner. The colors I used are Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, and Emerald Envy. I cut the banner out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I used Dimensionals to pop it up on the base. I used Wink of Stella on the flame. A fast and easy birthday card.

It's my turn to host this weeks challenge!
My card might not be the typical feminine card, but I so loved the delicate lacey leaves as well as the greeting and I felt it works for this challenge.
Photographing the foil papers is hard to do!
The card base is Thick Whisper White layered with Year of Cheer Specialty DSP. I used the Envelope Punch Board to round the corners. Using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits I cut leaves from Silver and Copper Foil Paper. I stamped the sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers with Versamark on Whisper White Cardstock and heat embossed with the Copper Embossing Powder. I cut the sentiment out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and popped it up with Dimensionals.

The stamp set Painted Harvest is a popular set from the Holiday catalog. For the background, I stamped the acorn and the fern using Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks. I used Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape at the bottom of the card. I used Copper Foil Paper to mat the sunflower but first I used the Leaf Punch (bundled with the Painted Harvest stamp set for a 10% saving) to punch the leaf out of the center of my square. The sunflower is stamped with Daffodil Delight, Cajon Craze and Soft Suede ink. I added the copper leaf as well as two more punched from Vellum cardstock behind the image of the sunflower

Marsha is this weeks host!
I bought my first ever paid tutorial for this card! * I was asked if I would provide a link to where I bought the tutorial http://addinktivedesigns.com/shop/) After making this card from the tutorial
I made this one.
I used the Christmas Staircase Thinlits for this card.
I used Garden Green cardstock for the base and Pines. Be Merry DSP for the layer. I used Wood Textures for the staircase. I used Foil Sheets for the small embellishments. Hearts Come Home is the set I used for the sentiment.
