One of my favorite stamp sets from the new 2019 Stampin’ UP! Holiday Catalog is a stamp set called “Gather Together” and it’s part of the Come to Gather product suite. This product suite brings the beauty of Autumn together with sentiments that are just perfect for Thanksgiving, and beyond!
I combined these papers, stamps and dies with a non-traditional card style to create today’s card. Take a look:
I took my color cue from the Paper Players color challenge and realized that the colors in the Come to Gather DSP were the same colors as the color challenge! Perfect! My card base is Merry Merlot and the leaves and pumpkins are Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock and a little bit of Copper Metallic foil! The inks used are Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.
Here is a close-up the die-cut elements:
Doesn’t that Copper Foil just add a delightful shimmer to the card? And the Pretty Peacock pumpkin is just beautiful, albeit and non-traditional color for a pumpkin!
Here is the PPA Color Challenge inspiration:

This card is not what it seems! There is a non-traditional approach to the face of this card. I went on Facebook Live to show how to make this. You can watch the replay on at Facebook.com/MyStampinSpace. Please hop over there and leave me a comment. Be sure to Like my page while you’re there!

I needed a get well card for a man so I wanted something clean & simple and with masculine colors. Sahara Sand and Island Indigo DSP pair up beautifully for a wonderful color combination that’s masculine but not drab.
“Everything Eleanor” and “Perfectly Penned” were the stamp sets I used. I stamped the background in Sahara Sand ink on whisper white cardstock; my paper snips made easy work to accurately cut this out. The Get Well sentiment was stamped in Island Indigo ink onto Whisper White paper. The Apothecary Accents framelits popped out that die cut shape in no time. I used the Candy Dots in Island Indigo (Regals Collection # 130932) and the Candy Dots Brad Bases to accent the die cut shape and sentiment. They really add a finished touch, don’t you think?

Today is Monday, so it’s time to get my mojo on and play the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.
Here is the sketch that the design team over at Mojo Monday created. I had so many ideas run thru my head the second I saw this sketch. Since I had my Halloween stamps and paper out (for the Pals Blog Hop) I used those.
Here is my project – I hope you like it!
This sketch is a great way to use those little scraps of DSP that I always seem to accumulate but don’t want to get rid of (and I’m sure you have them too!).
My card base is Very Vanilla cardstock with Basic Black layered on top of that. A strip of Tangerine Tango crosses the top and acts as anchor for all the flags to hang from. A circle of Very Vanilla acts as the canvas for my witch from the Googly Ghouls stamp set. Both of those pieces have been pierced for added interest and texture. You can see that better in this close-up.
I punched a circle in So Saffron and sponged Daffodil Delight around the outer edges to create shading. The little bat flying over the moon adds to the ominous feeling!
I also used Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, and Lucky Limeade markers to color in parts of my little witch. The Googlie eyes just make the images in this stamp set so adorable! Nothing frightening here!

Thanks for stopping into My Stampin’ Space! I hope you were inspired to get your mojo on and try your hand at making a project using your scraps of DSP and this sketch.
