Stampin’ Up! Inspiration Saturday

Stampin’ Up! Inspiration Saturday

Hello papercrafters!  It’s Dani Dziama and Mindy Bingamon here and we’re members of the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team.  We’ve partnered up and are super excited to be your guest bloggers for today.  As September is the unofficial start of fall (or at least we think so), we’re bringing you some fall flair with brand new Stampin’ Up products.  We’ve used the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and coordinating Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper to create some fabulous fall projects!

This stamp set is pretty gorgeous on it’s own, but we wanted to really showcase the paper and the beautiful images that can be cut out and used as your focal point.

We’ll take a look at Dani’s projects first.


“When I first saw Painted Autumn Product Suite in the new Holiday Catalog, I absolutely had to have it! Everything about it is spectacular! Sunflowers are my favorite so naturally they were the inspiration for my projects today.


For the card- I chose to create something simple. I wanted to show that YES! you can create a beautiful card based solely on images found in the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. Add a few embellishments like Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine and its good to go!


For my second project, I created a few Thanksgiving table favors that double as place cards. Each Mini Pizza Box has a belly-band which is easily removed to allow access to the contents of the box. It’s still a little early for the treats, so I plan to fill these a little later with a turkey shaped sugar cookie (Yumm!)”


Now let’s look at what Mindy created!


“I wanted to keep my projects simple so that they are easy to duplicate and the focus is on those gorgeous images from the Designer Series Paper. I know some people are put off by fussy cutting but these are really easy and quick to cut out.  Don’t be afraid and break out those paper snips! I also based both cards off the same basic sketch to show that you can get a totally different look from the same layout!

I thought the sunflowers would look fantastic with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack .

Some Crushed Curry ⅜” Stitched Satin Ribbon and Linen Thread really tied the rich colors together nicely.


I then had to cut out some of these gorgeous pumpkins!  I love pumpkins!  Every year we go to a huge pumpkin patch that has all sorts of heirloom and funky colored pumpkins.  My favorites are always the white ones and pale blue ones, which this DSP totally reminds me of!  I think an all-white background really puts the spotlight on the image!

To add a little bit of interest, I used our Embossing Paste with our Pattern Party Decorative Masks for some texture.  You can add color but I think it looks really stunning as is on white cardstock.


I realized I don’t own any Soft Sky ribbon but some Pool Party ⅜” Shimmer Ribbon came to the rescue!  Our shimmer ribbons are so pretty and I think that the Pool Party works just as well as Soft Sky would have for this project.  For the finishing touch, I added a couple of little curly tendrils cut out of Crumb Cake Cardstock with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlit Dies.


We hope you enjoyed our projects today and we hope we’ve inspired you to cut into your Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper!” ~ Dani & Mindy

Thank you Dani & Mindy for sharing these lovely projects with us! We love all the texture and warmth of these brand new fall products.

    Parker- Unfortunately I’m not able to email you at your email address as I do not have access to that information. The half sunflower was simply cut from a piece of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    I’d like to thank everyone for their kind words! It’s been a pleasure to create these gorgeous projects to share with you all!

    If there was ever a Stampin’ Up! collection that seems like it was made specifically for me, this is it! Sunflowers are my favorite flower and even though I dislike the taste of pumpkin I love seeing the variety of colors, shapes and sizes that they come in!
    Your cards are delightful and lovely! They bring to mind cool Fall nights as a kid jumping in the leaves ?, trying to capture the last few weeks of warmer days before Jack Frost starts nipping at my nose!
    Thanks for sharing these cards with me and inspiring me to create some Fall cards! I am definitely going to keep my fingers crossed tightly ??????in hopes of being the lucky winner of the yummy collection!
