I had some friends that gave me little gifts before I left, so I needed to make some thank you notes. I immediately reached for my Coming Home bundle #155144. I had not cracked it open yet, but I wanted to give them a new Home/Fall card. So I came up with this one. We have a red Mini Cooper and even though the car is not a Cooper, it’s close enough. You can easily take this layout and make it a Christmas card with a few minor changes. I love this bundle. It is so versatile. It’s great for new home, Christmas, Fall, Halloween, Realtors, etc. For all the supplies and directions read on. You can see I used a few more stamp sets and dies to complete this card.
Crisp air calls for a hot coffee. Don’t like coffee, I found a Chai Pumpkin Spice Black tea K-cup on Amazon. Have you also noticed Pumpkin Spice everything? I have seen so many recipes and of course Pumpkin Spice coffee. I think Starbuck’s came out with theirs early this year. I love the taste of pumpkin, but they can get a little pricey. So I have found Pumpkin Spice coffee pods. I think I got them at Target. They are delicious. I came up with a small box that fits the pods perfectly and I don’t have to make the box. A few snips of the Plaid Tidings designer paper and stamps from the Have a Hoot and Warm Hugs and you have the perfect gift for Halloween or Thanksgiving. For the box I have used the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes. I love when Stampin’ Up! makes it easy for us to look great! The designer paper is on sale right now! You can instructions and supplies below.
For my card today, I will be using one of my favorite bundles from the Mini Holiday catalog. On page 48 you will find the Autumn goodness Bundle. I love every stamp in this set and the matching dies makes cards so easily. It has a bunch of wheat, pumpkins and apples, flowers a wheelbarrow and beautiful sayings. The dies even include an adorable fence. I have another card later, I will show you using the fence. I am using some of the warm colors from the Plaid Tidings designer paper pack and chose Pumpkin Pie and Cinnamon Cider for my border colors.

This cute Gnome for The Holidays stamp set #153322 is only $19- and will give you lots of ideas for Holiday cards. They are cute and versatile. You can change the girl to a witch for Halloween, just cut out a witch’s hat and color her appropriately. I love this wizard one. He is perfect for granting birthday wishes and the third gnome can have a spider hanging from his hat or a bat. Just punch the shape and cover the holly. He can carry a pumpkin instead of a Christmas ornament. Just think outside the box. My card today has lots of sparkle. The Balmy Blue Glimmer paper is so pretty and adds to the frosty look on my card. I used more of the Feels Like Frost Designer paper, that picks up more of that frosty blue color. Don’t forget to add Wink of Stella to give the gnome even more sparkle.
I created a Birthday card for those winter birthdays, using the Arrange a Wreath bundle and the Gnome for the Holidays sets. One of the Gnomes in the set looks like a Wizard, so I used him to put on my wreath. He looks adorable. There is lots of sparkle on the card. I used the Balmy Blue glitter paper and silver foil to add sparkle. I also added the blue adhesive backed gems in the center of the flowers. I colored the metallic mesh ribbon with a sponge and Balmy Blue ink. It adds shimmer with a hint of color. For the details and supplies read on.
I have a cute Fall wreath for you today using the Arrange a Wreath bundle in our Annual catalog. I cased the card straight from our catalog. Don’t forget all the beautiful samples that are in our catalogs, when you need an idea. I have also made a Christmas version I will share with you, when it gets closer to the Season. I love how easy it is to die cut the leaves and berries used for this wreath. I find myself saying thanks every day for our health and for the health of my family and friends. The card is appropriate for Thanksgiving or just to say thanks.
