I did want to share TWO items I’ve created with this October SOTM stamp set. 

I LOVE the soft colors of this first card!  My inspiration for this card came from fellow consultant Karen Pedersen!! (check out her BLOG HERE!!!)  What a talented woman, a caring person and I was privileged to meet her at Convention this past summer.  I LOVE the arwork she creates! Absolutely AMAZING!!!

I used the basic design of the card that Karen used, but switched up the colors a bit from her original card. J I was dreaming for a couple days of putting together the colors sweet leaf, grey flannel and twilight…the color combo continued to stay in my head! LOL!! I was really happy with the results and LOVE the fact how EASY this card was to create!!! 

The Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (again) helped make this card an easy card to create!  I used the shape on page 47 of the AP manual called <Shape 8>.  Other items used to create this card…
D1283 Say It In Style stamp set
D1477 Universal Backgrounds
Z1383 Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain ribbon
Z1104 Clear Sparkles       ….and of course
Z1151 3D foam  (I’m using this foam ALL the time recently!)
One more item I created with this set…I created a Post It note holder with my bind-it-all machine!

I made this for a 2nd time hostess…along with a few other goodies too!  I LOVE the cheerfulness of the Believe paper pack and thought it was perfect to make a post it note holder for the upcoming holiday season!!! Of course I needed to add some glitz...silver glitz glitter gel was the charm!

That is all the artwork I have to share for now (I’ll be sharing about Studio J next!)  So, POST your COMMENTS now so that you will have a chance to win this WONDERFUL stamp set J!!!  I can’t WAIT to see all of your ideas!!

Even if you are not the winner this time, you will want to make sure that this stamp is added to your collection PRIOR to October 31st!!!

  1. Krista--This is great! I love the card idea--great colors! I'm hoping to earn this with my book party, but if not...maybe I'll win it here!


  2. Krista I love it. I think I might have to get a bind it all. I am always looking for hostess ideas and this one rocks. Did you use cardstock or chipboard for the cover and back?

  3. I wasn't impressed with the set until I saw the samples of the way you used it. Awesome card with beautiful colors! You are so creative! Marla

  4. GREAT stuff, Krista! I'm honored that you got some inspiration from my card!

  5. me, me, over here!!! lol...

    Love, love this set! your creations are amazing too. I am partial to little post it note gifts so that would have to be a fave :-)

    Can't wait to spend the day together next Saturday!!!

  6. I would love to use this set to make holiday gift tags.

  7. I would use it for gift tags and cards as a craft with my boys.


Thanks for taking time to make a comment!
Blessings to you for a BEAUTIFUL day! :)
