Pumpkin Is The Spice of Life All Occasion Card

Hello and welcome!
It's a freezing, icy, sleeting day here. A good time to be indoors and crafting. 
I have a coffee lovers card to show you today. I'm a huge fan of pumpkin spice lattes, but since I'm on an anti-inflammatory diet I can't drink the traditional ones that the cafes make. I sure am missing that part of this pumpkin season, I can tell you! To ease the pain, I made a pumpkin spice latte card instead using the Carta Bella Hello Fall kit I purchased at Scrapbook Super Station.

I love the design of this card... so much fun!

The papers are loaded with pumpkins, and of course there's that lovely take-out cup. I added a bit of orange glitter paper and a few sequins for shine, plus some Tim Holtz Alterations Thinlits tiny fall leaves and an I Am Roses bloom.

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Collors of Fall All Occasion Card

Hello sweet friends!
Just got back home from a doctor's appointment and a stop at our local diner for an early dinner date with my sweetheart. It's really looking like a storm. Most of the leaves are down here, but we saw some pretty ones up north earlier today. So I'm assuming that this rain will bring any hangers-on down as well.

My card for today is another of the Carta Bella Hello Fall collection. The base was cut with the Sizzix Framelits Circle Flip-its Die Set. It came in the kit I purchased from Scrapbook Super Station. Love the ease of these kits.

I did add a die-cut made with gold glitter paper from Hobby Lobby and Spellbinders Scalloped Circles dies. Always need that extra touch that says this is my card.

Have a fantastic day, my friends, and thanks for stopping by!

Thankful For You Fall Card

Hello! Welcome to my blog on this Fall Saturday morning!
The Penmaker is anticipating lots of leaf mulching if the weather holds. What are you planning for the day?

My Carta Bella Hello Fall collection card is a more of a Thanksgiving themed one. I just love the patterns on these papers... Fall trees and leaves... what can be prettier? Maybe a little orange glitter and golden gems? Whatever the mix, I really am happy to have purchased this kit. (Here)

I have just two more to finish up, then I'm on to something else.
Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Is In The Air Card

Hi there and Happy Friday!
I've put together another Hello Fall card using the Carta Bella collection kit I purchased at Scrapbook Super Station. I can tell you I'm having a ball making these cards. I just sit back and follow their instructions, but I add a few of my own touches.

On this card I added an additional layer with some Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Cardstock. This is the older pack that came in the 12x12 size and had bronze in the mix. That's the color I used here. It gave the card a little more warmth and stability.

Also I used this yellow stitched ribbon instead of the darker one suggested. I love the brightness it brings to the overall look.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend and can get in some crafting time. I'm going to try to work in one of my art journals, but who knows how that will turn out. It's been a long while since I pulled any of them out. We will see!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Fall All Occasion Card

Hello friends and welcome!
We're having a warm rainy Fall day. Strange the way our temperatures have been up and down this season. It's Halloween... it should be cold. Nevertheless I'm still making Fall cards. Lots of them, using my Carta Bella Hello Fall kit from Scrapbook Super Station

This card called for several die-cuts. This main one is Avery Elle's Elle-Ments Horizontal Stripes. It
was part of the pre-cut kit contents, but I really think I need to purchase the die. I can think of several cool ways to use it.

I added a circle layer under this die-cut that came in the Ephemera pack, then I topped them with some foliage. For these I used Tim Holtz Thinlits Fall Foliage and Festive Greens. To make the foliage I took a sheet of 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Classic Crest cardstock and smooshed it onto a selection of Distress Inks... Rusty Hinge, Carved Pumpkin, and Wild Honey... that I had misted with water, drying with my heat tool between applications.

The ribbon, burlap string, and tiny acorn charm all came in the kit, as well as the patterned papers and the kraft A2 size card base. The envelope was included too.

Have a great day and I'll be back soon with more Fall cards.
Thanks for stopping by.

Adelaide's Fall Birthday Card

Hello sweet friends and welcome!
Today I have a birthday card to share that I made using the Carta Bella Hello Fall collection that I purchased as a kit from Scrapbook Super Station. I changed up this card slightly to make it a birthday card for granddaughter Adelaide, who turns five today.
Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!!

I just love the Fall... everything about it. I don't even mind all the rain. It reminds me of the years the Penmaker and I would go to New England in October to see the gorgeous foliage turning color. It always seemed to rain when we went. Have you ever noticed how beautiful a cloudy Fall sky looks when it's about to rain? I digress. I get carried away on the beauties of Fall.

Back to Adelaide's card... an A2 card with lots of dimension. I added an orange organza bow made from ribbon purchased from Joanns at 60% off (watch for their sales on ribbon... fabulous!) and an orange paper flower that came in the kit. The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped using Clearly Besotted's Many Mini Messages from Simon Says Stamp and Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger onto a strip of the patterned paper I cut with a fishtail end.

For bling, because Adelaide loves a little glitz, I glued on a few orange sequins.

Have a wonderful day, Adelaide, and all of you, as well!
Thanks for stopping by!

Leaves Are Falling, Autumn Is Calling Card

Hello and welcome!
I've been taking a little break from crafting, but that never seems to last. Those papers and dies call to me from my craft room and draw me back. 

I made a simple A2 card using a kraft cardstock base and materials from a Scrapbook Super Station kit that I believe is discontinued. The collection is Carta Bella's Hello Fall... a lovely set of fall patterned papers and ephemera.

I added in some DCWV orange glitter paper as a mat for some pizzaz, and edged everything in Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. The burlap string bow is in orange and it's tied to a dainty silver plated leaf charm that came in the kit. The flowers are by I Am Roses, except for the one brown rosebud which was part of the kit contents.

I hope you're having a fantastic week.

May Your Life Together Be Full of Love Wedding Card

Hello there!
Sorry for being MIA for so long. My health hasn't improved over the summer as much as I would have liked and standing at my desk to work is not an option right now. I do however have another card I created some time back from the Scrapbook Super Station card kit Kaiser Rose Avenue.

This is a tri-fold card featuring Kaisercraft's lovely Rose Avenue collection.

Hope you like it!
I'll try to post again as soon as I'm able. I've been thinking of moving my supplies to the dinning room table, but that doesn't seen to practical. Anyway, I'll work on coming up with some way to create. I'm really missing it.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Grayden!

Hello and welcome!
It's a beautiful day in Ohio... time to get out for some adventure. After a trip to the eye doctor that's what I'm hoping will happen. School started here yesterday, and I've had the glums since half the grandchildren aren't around now to hug.
My project I'm showcasing today is a card I created for 13 year old grandson Grayden's birthday. It's an A2 top folding base of Neenah Desert Storm 100 lb cardstock. The pattern papers are by BoBunny. I stamped the sentiment using the Concord & 9th Happy Words clear stamp set and heat embossed with Ranger Copper embossing powder. I added Tim Holtz Paper Dolls and some antique copper metal embellishments. I popped out two hearts after cutting a piece of  copper glitter paper with my Simon Says Stamp Clipping Hearts die and added those for a small touch of pizzaz. 
Have a great rest of the week, friends!
Thanks for stopping by!

Special Delivery Kaiser Rose Avenue Card

Hello! I hope you're enjoying your Saturday!
Today I have a card I made from the Scrapbook Super Station card kit Kaiser Rose Avenue featuring Kaisercraft's lovely Rose Avenue collection.

This card has a lot of layers using these gorgeous floral papers that come from the 6.5x6.5 paper pad and the pink glitter paper provided in the kit. I'm really enjoying the fact I don't have to come up with my own design. I can sit back and pull this all together, and make a beautiful card without as much effort. 

 In the kit you receive a full package of die-cuts, so you'll have lots left over to use on other projects.

The kit also came with these pink half pearls, which I sprinkled randomly around on the card.

Besides the pearls, my only other change to their design was the ribbon. I used this lovely white one in place of the soft pink.
This is a wonderful kit. Please do check it out here or visit the shop in Butler, PA. I love this place.
Have a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Card With Kaiser Rose Avenue

Hello and welcome to my blog!
Today I have another in my series of cards I created with the lovely Kaiser Rose Avenue card kit from Scrapbook Super Station.

If you check out the link for the kit above, you'll see that I've made some significant changes to the design. Just me being me. I first of all changed the base from the one provided in the kit to a top folding one made from Neenah Classic Crest 110 lb Solar White cardstock. I love the materials in this kit, and wanted to play around a little with the paper and die-cuts. So that's exactly what I did, replacing the focal point die-cuts and the design.

For finishing touches I added on some beautiful Studio Katia Crystal Clear Confetti. They add just a bit of  sparkle and glam. I tied on a small piece of the pink ribbon to the tag for some softness. 
Yep, I'm liking this card!

 Hope your having a great week.
Thanks for stopping by!

Kaiser Rose Avenue So Grateful Thank You Card

Hello friends!
 The week is slipping away, but there's plenty of crafting going on in the Breedlove house. I've made another card from the gorgeous Kaiser Rose Avenue card kit from Scrapbook Super Station. This one is created directly from the instruction sheet aside from a slight chance in the ribbon and pearls.

I'm loving this kit so much that the Penmaker drove us back over to Butler, PA, to purchase  another... four actually! They had added more new ones to their selection and the choice was difficult. Thus the four.

I'll show them all soon, but for now I just have to let you see my prize purchase...

I had to unbox it the minute I got home. They had recently received another shipment of the Tim Holtz Glass Mats. These things are so hard to find. They keep selling out everywhere, so I grabbed one up. It fit my desk perfectly... now I can't wait to try it out!

Have a wonderful, crafty day. Thanks for stopping by!

Together Is A Beautiful Place To Be Card

Hello and Happy Monday! 
This is stacking up to be a very busy week for the Penmaker and me, so I'll get right to today's card. It's a top folding A2 anniversary or wedding card. I created this with the Kaiser Rose Avenue card kit from Scrapbook Super Station.

I did make some modifications to this one just like the others I made from this kit. I feel I need to put my own touches on the cards so they are truly mine. I added a bouquet of I Am Roses mini rosebuds in place of the flowers that came with the kit, but I tied them with the silver metallic thread and attached the charm as they suggested.

The materials in this kit are lovely... like this charm and pink half pearls.

I also changed up the sentiment die-cut to make this an anniversary/wedding card, and layered on an additional mat of pink patterned paper.
I'm nearly finished with this kit, so I'm seeing a trip to Butler, PA coming up in our future. Maybe I'll see you there.

Thanks for stopping by!
