We made a Cascading Card during September's Card Class- which I will share next week. This is what I did with leftover Die Cut Leaves from the Autumn Accents. I LOVED the leftovers! Do you recognize the frame?  I am going to switch out the inserts seasonally! Last month I posted the Winter Frame

This quick card was put together using the Photopolymer Stamp Set Flower Patch.  The smaller flowers in the set are stamped multiple times with 3 colors. The Photopolymer set makes it easy to line up the stems under each blossom and line up the sentiment. 

Stamp Set:  Flower Patch
Ink:  Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Lost Lagoon, Night of Navy
Card Stock: Whisper White, Night of Navy
And More:  Hello Honey Ribbon, Bright Candy Dots

We just picked up some Yellow & Red Mums and Purple Kale to add to our deck for some Fall Colors as our summer blossoms are fading and dwindling.  I thought the largest flower in the Flower Patch Stamp Set looked like it would layer wonderfully as a mum. There is a bit of fussy-cutting for the layers, but the base flower and the leaves are cut with the Framelits of the same name- Flower Patch. 

Stamp Set:  Flower Patch
Ink:  Crushed Curry, Momento Black, Mossy Meadow
Card Stock:  Whisper White, DSP- Back to Black
And More:  Flower Patch Framelits, Washi Tape- Beach House

A fun way to acknowledge someone's accomplishment no matter how big or small with a card.  I CASED a card from Dawn Griffith.  She has some fantastic videos that she so generously shares. I switched up the papers and stamp set but followed her dimensions. 

Both Cards were done with the same Designer Series Paper Stack- All Abloom. I LOVE the 2 sided papers and how by just switching them over, you have another fun combo!

Thanks Dawn!

Stamp Set;  Bravo
Ink:  Mossy Meadow, Daffodil Delight
Card Stock:  Whisper White, Mossy Meadow, DSP-All Abloom, Island Indigo
And More:  Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Pearls, Circle Framelits, 2 1/2" Circle Punch

If you "google" Cascading Card Images, you will be delighted to see all the fun ways to make this card.  I have found several videos with great instructions, so I won't be reinventing the wheel and make a video for this one.  I decided to use Zoo Babies and create a tree as a back drop to house the playful monkeys. Tucked in among the folds are animals and birds and reptiles. I will be making a custom envelope using my Envelope Punch Board. 

Stamp Set:  Zoo Babies
Ink: Smokey Slate, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder, Tangerine Tango, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Baked Brown Sugar, Basic Gray, Markers- Garden Green, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black
Card Stock:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar DSP- Moonlight Paper Stack & Pattern Greens from Regals, Subtles & Brights. 
And More:  Woodgrain EF, Fringe Scissors, Linen Thread, Scallop Circle Punches- 2 3/8", 1 3/4", 1 1/4", 7/8"

Side View with swinging monkeys.

This card was CASED [aka copied ;-) ] from Calla Lilly Studio . My sister spotted it on Pinterest and wanted a template to make it.  I did my best to oblige!

Last week was my son & his wife's anniversary so I made them this card.  It was fun using my Blendabilities and layering the flowers for a beautiful 3D effect. Offsetting the cut petal layers add to a fuller flower & leaves.

I add this card to Stampin' Celebration! Challenge # 86 . 

This image shows a better shot of the front design cut.  The card base is Blackberry Bliss 5 1/2" x 6 3/8"- scored at 2 1/8". The flower image panel is 3" x 2 1/2".

Use your Stylus Tool to add texture and curl the flower petals.

Stamp Sets:  I Like You Hostess Set, Memorable Moments
Ink:  Momento Black, Whisper White, Blendabilities- Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry & Color Lifter
Card Stock:  Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White, Basic Black, Designer Series Paper Stack- Moonlight
And More:  Pearls, Scallop Border Punch
