25th Anniversary RemARKable Blog Tour - Best of Autumn

Welcome to the RemARKable 25 Years with Stampin' Up! Blog Tour!  This month the RemARKables are showcasing September's theme "Best of Autumn." You may have arrived here from Jackie Bottomley's blog.  I am always amazed at her projects!

Best of Autumn Item 134390
I designed this card for my fall card class earlier this month.

The ladies really liked it and wondered where I got the birch bark paper.  Well folks, it can only be purchased through the Thankful Tablescape Bundle.  I used the journaling tip of the markers to color this cute little tree.  My ladies really liked how this card came together so quickly.

Next up on the RemARKable Blog Tour is Tamra Davis.  Click on the image below or go to http://thecardladies.com to see what wonderful projects Tamra has created for you to see.

A New Song - Take a Listen

It's been a while since I shared an inspirational song.  Here's one I heard a few days ago on the radio. I'm not really into country music or banjos, but I do like the message this song conveys. It's kinda growing on me.

RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour - Harvest of Thanks

Welcome to the RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour.  This month some of our most talented stampers are featuring the stamp set called Harvest of Thanks. (Some others are using the Christmas ornament set.)  This distressed image set is featured in the Holiday catalog and contains shapes that coordinate with some of our Sizzix framelits.  Even if  you don't stamp "perfectly," these images turn out looking fine every time.

Wood Mount 131736 $20.95 Clear Mount 131739 $15.95

Here is my creation:

I paired this stamp set with Marvelous Maple stamped in Versamark on Soft Sky card stock.  I also used a piece Sweater Weather designer series paper.  I finished up the card with a strip of fringed Burlap Ribbon and a Naturals designer button with a bit of the leftover burlap tied into the button. 

This card is quick and easy to create. I'm going to send it to the Girl Scout leaders who tool my girls on a bus trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo today.

Any questions about these projects, please send me an email.  ...Next up on the tour is Tamra Davis.   Click on the image below or go to her blog following this link: http://thecardladies.com.
