Colorful Seasons for Fall

Good morning and Happy Thursday! It really is beginning to look a lot like Fall around here so I thought today I would share with you a quick and very easy card with you that uses very few of your stamping resources, yet packs a whole lot of PUNCH!



Colorful Seasons


Whisper White


Pumpkin Pie
Cajun Craze
Chocolate Chip


Clear Wink of Stella
Jute Twine
Seasonal Layers Thinlits
Stampin' Sponges
Glue Dots
Fast Fuse
Post-It Notes for mask


Begin with a half sheet of Whisper White Cardstock folded in half (8 .5" x 5.5") and mask off the left side of the front panel of the card base protecting the back of the cardbase and the right front leaving an area of approximately 2" of white space (this really isn't important, leave open what you think will look good for your taste). Once masks are in place, using a piece of Stampin' Sponge, swirl on Pumpkin Pie ink, begin swirling color onto the mask working your way onto the cardbase, this will prevent the color from being applied to heavy handed (it's far easier to add color than it is to take it away), then using the same technique, add Cajun Craze followed by a little of the Chocolate Chip. Go easy on the Chocolate Chip, you just want a little to accent the piece. Go ahead and add a little more Pumpkin Pie and remove the mask.
Using the left over Whisper White, stamp 3 solid leaves using the "Rock n Roll" technique. To do this, pick up Pumpkin Pie ink with the solid stamp, then carefully "roll" the edges of the stamp over the Cajun Craze ink and stamp onto the cardstock. Do this for a total of 3 leaves. Then, using the leaf image with veins, stamp over the leaves with the Chocolate Chip. Die cut the leaves with the Big Shot and coat with Clear Wink of Stella. Apply to card front with Fast Fuse, tie a bow with the Jute Twine and add to card over leaf stems with a glue dot. 

I hope you enjoy this card and give it a try for yourself. It's quick and it's simple and it really packs some wow! To purchase the products used in this card, just use the links below. Thank you for taking the time to hang out with me for a few. 
Happy Stamping!

Nature Sings - Bring Beauty and Ease to your Christmas Card Designs

Hello and Happy Thursday!  I hope you enjoyed the blog hop with the Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Framelits? I know I did; so many talented demonstrators, 40 to be exact, took part in this awesome hop. if you haven't checked it out yet, please do, I promise you won't be disappointed.
Today, I want to share a really quick and easy card this is also eye catching and will be loved by anyone that receives it, especially those that love nature and the beautiful animals that roam, such as in this case, the Elk. I LOVE this stamp set. Yeah, I'm a country girl at heart and I love critters....well most critters...I don't do well with mice or rats...they would be my all out phobia...eeek, I get the Hebe jeebees just thinking about them! Anyway, as I was saying, I love this stamp set and want to share a card I made using it. I was inspired by a card designed by Ronda Wade and her Rubber Queens. I changed up the stamp set and I used some retired ribbon that I had on hand, but I really love this card and am very happy with how it came out.



Nature Sings Stamp Set
Whisper White 8.5" x 5.5" and 4" x 5.25"; scrap piece to stamp and punch
Scrap Real Red Card stock to punch with 1.75" Circle Punch
Be Merry DSP cut 4" x 2.5"
Soft Suede Ink 
Basic Black Archival Ink
Real Red Ribbon
Pretty Label Punch
1.75" Circle Punch
Stampin' Dimensionals
Fast Fuse


Adhere the DSP to the Whisper White panel with Fast Fuse. Wrap with the ribbon around the seam. Using the small Elk image and Soft Suede ink, stamp off onto scrap paper then stamp the image onto Whisper White. Then with the Archival Basic Black ink, stamp the sentiment directly over the Elk image and punch using the Pretty Label punch. Adhere to the front of the Real Red 1.75" circle and adhere to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally, adhere the card front to the card base using Dimensionals. 

I hope you enjoyed this card and helps you get thinking about your Christmas cards. If you get started now, you will be ready to send them when the time comes and won't be stressed trying to make them and send them all at the same time while trying to get ready for the holiday's. Let's make it our mission to have a stress free holiday season and enjoy Christmas with the ones we love this year. 
Happy Stamping,

Wood Words & The 2017-2019 In-Colors

Good Morning and happy Tuesday! I have to tell you, I spent the weekend in my craft room playing around with new goodies, as I am preparing for my new Annual Catalog Launch party, and the more I play with these new In-colors, the more I fall in love with them. In today's cards, I created monochromatic examples using each of the new colors using the new stamp set, Wood Words, an awesome stamp set that ranks right up there as a favorite and I really hope you enjoy these as well.
For each card, I began with a card base cut 8.5" x 5.5" scored and folded at 4.25" Then for the Tranquil Tide and the Fresh Fig card, I used coordinating colored DSP from the Eastern Palace Designer Series paper pack cut 4" x 5.25" and for the Lemon Lime Twist and the Berry Burst, I made my own patterned paper using the splatter image from the Touches of Textures stamp set and the Powder Pink I created the pattern using the dotted pattern from the Playful Backgrounds stamp set. I then cut a second piece of solid cardstock 3.25" x 4.5" and stamped the floral pattern from Wood Words stamp set onto Whisper White with the coordinating ink pad along with the sentiment from the same set in Basic Black and Fresh Fig for the Tranquil Tide card.
I hope you enjoyed today's cards and I really hope I was able to capture how awesome these colors really are for you. Please feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments below as I do enjoy reading them. In the meantime, have a great day and happy stamping,

Remarkable Ink Big Hop- Sneak Peek

Hey all, welcome to the Remarkable Ink Big blog hop and Happy Mothers Day to all the moms' and furry baby moms too! Yes, I'm a fur baby mom and no, he has no idea he's not a human baby. Even when I want to craft, he's right by my side in his stroller with his chewy bone until he falls asleep! Otherwise, he wants on my lap and that sure does make creating a little challenging!
Anyhoo, this month's hop theme is Sneak Peek! And I am so in love with this new catalog that I just want it ALL! But for today, I want to share a card I made with one of my all time favorite bundles from the pre-order, Daisy Delight and the absolutely awesome 6" x 6" DSP stack, Color Theory. This paper is so rich in color and the design work is amazing with the crackle look and lots of ombre and paint chip looks, I just love it.

I'm really loving this new In-color, Berry Burst too. Look how rich and bright this color is. It literally just pops off the paper and I added a brand new embellishment to the center of my daisy. It is one of the brand new Clear Faceted Gems. I used the largest size. Look how it just sparkles!
Can you see the glitz and glam? They're just beautiful and I know you're going to love them just as much as I do. I hope you liked today's project. Please feel free to leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts on today's offering for the Sneak Peak Hop.
Remember, you are on my blog, Katrina Wolfe -Stampin' n Scrappin' From the Heart, below you will find the list of hoppers, just click the next link in the line up to continue moving throughout the hop for more awesomeness from our talented demonstrators. Just sit back and click through all of the links as I promise you will not be disappointed and you will find some great inspiration to spark your own creativity.
Happy Stamping,
