RemARKable Blog Tour: Best of 25 Years Best of Autumn

Hello, and welcome to the Remarkable Stampers Blog Tour!  This month we are featuring the Best of Autumn stamp set.

Best of Autumn
#134390  $14.95
I love this time of year!  The weather is brisk and the leaves are starting to change here in Maryland.  This great lovely Fall weather is my inspiration for my first card.

Isn't the plaid Designer Series Paper just gorgeous?  It is from the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper Pack in the Holiday Mini Catalog. 

Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper
#132184  $10.95
Here is my second card:

I used the Label Card Thinlits Die for this card.  I stamped the pumpkin image in Early Espresso ink and colored it with Stampin' Write Markers.  I selected colors that coordinate with the great Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper -- I just LOVE this paper!

Now, it is time to see what Melissa Bollinger ( has created!

RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour!

Hello!  It is the second Sunday of the month, so it's time for another fabulous RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour!  This month we are featuring projects made with two products from the Holiday Mini Catalog:  Harvest of Thanks and Christmas Collectibles. 
Harvest of Thanks
#131736  Wood Mount  $20.95
#131739  Clear Mount  $15.95

My first creation uses this stamp set along with the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper. 
I stamped the main image in Cajun Craze ink onto Very Vanilla card stock.  I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink to make it look "vintage."  The base of the card is Chocolate Chip with a layer of Cajun Craze, then the layer of Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper.  I used the 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon, Linen Thread, and Antique Brads to embellish this card.  Perfect for Autumn!
I used the Christmas Collectibles Bundle for my other two projects.  You can save 15% when you buy the Christmas Collectibles stamp set and the Christmas Ornament Punch together. 
Christmas Collectibles Stamp Set + Christmas Ornament Punch
#133282  Wood Mount  $31.95
#133283  Clear Mount  $27.95
Here is my first project:

I used Cherry Cobbler card stock for the base of the card, then added a layer of Early Espresso that I embossed twice with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder.  Embossing twice gives lets you get a "plaid" look to your card stock.  This is a great idea that one of my customers suggested -- isn't it cute?  I stamped each ornament twice then cut the center section out and layered it on top of the punched ornaments.  Cherry Cobbler twine makes cute bows and ornament hangers, too.  The sentiment is from the Joy to the World Stamp set. 

Joy to the World
#131796  Wood Mount  $21.95
#131799  Clear Mount  $16.95
The final project for today is very, very sparkly.  I'm not sure my photos are able to show how sparkly this card is!

I used the Circle Card Thinlits Die to cut the base of this card in Smoky Slate card stock.  I added sparkle with our Silver Glimmer Paper and the striped paper in the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper.  What do you think? 

Here is a close-up of the ornament:

I stamped 4 ornaments, punched them out with the Christmas Ornament Punch, then folded them in half lengthwise.  I used our Tombow Liquid Adhesive to glue them together, then adhered them to the Silver Glimmer Paper snowflake die cut with Stampin' Dimensionals.  It was so much fun to make this card!

Well, that's all for me.  Now, it is time to see what Melissa Bollinger has created.  I know it will be Remarkable!  Just click on the graphic below, or go to

Festive Flurry Snowflake Ornaments

I will be participating in 2 craft shows before Christmas, and I am making these Festive Flurry Snowflake Ornaments as one of my items for sale.  What do you think?  Update -- I just opened an Etsy Store (BMore Stamper) and this is my first listing!  Woohoo!

I took advantage of being at a crop last weekend to crank out (literally!) 20 of these babies.  I stamped the snowflakes on Whisper White card stock, then cut them out with the Festive Flurry Framelits and my Big Shot.   

Festive Flurry Bundle (Save 15%!)
#133284  Wood Mount  $54.95
#133285  Clear Mount  $46.95
I just love our Frosted Finishes Embellishments!  They are perfect for a little touch of bling.

Frosted Finishes Embellishments
#132150  $6.95

The Frosted Finishes Embellishments coordinate perfectly with our Silver Glitter.  I made silver glitter snowflakes with Whisper White card stock and our Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.  The "bling" makes the snowflakes so sparkly!  Top it off with a loop of 1/8" Silver Ribbon as a hanger, and there you have it! 

I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to create some of your own.  You can order all of the products you need at my online store at  Happy Shopping!

Happy Stamping,
