Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post.
The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge. I was inspired by the trees and sun because I felt a feeling of serenity while I was looking at the image. The color combination is just gorgeous! Many of my faves!
Measurements are at the end of the blog.
Start out with the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper on the left. I thought it was a little barren. After looking through all my stamp sets, I found the perfect tree in the Grassy Grove stamp set.
Tear a piece of copy paper to make an uneven edge and use as a mask so that the trees appear further away. Stamp some trees in Starry Sky Ink. The mask also provides an edge to make a snow drift for the trees to be behind. Use a Small Blending Brush with the Starry Sky Ink and a light layer to make a soft snowdrift in front of the trees.
Diecut the sun with the smallest of the Deckled Circle Dies from a piece of full stick sticky paper. Tip: Diecut through 2 or more sticky sheets so that the top one will still have a full stick.
Apply a light layer of Crushed Curry Ink with a Small Blending Brush where you want the sun to be. Stick the sun mask on. Blend on more Crushed Curry Ink, then blend on a little Pumpkin Pie just around the edge.
To make the sun’s rays, use a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock and a Small Blending Brush. Apply a small amount of Crushed Curry Ink to the brush and very gently blend the color along the edge of the scrap of cardstock. Move the scrap a little and repeat until all the rays are done.
Add more trees in Mossy Meadow Ink and Blackberry Bliss Ink.
The sentiment is from the Horse & Sleigh stamp set. Stamp the sentiment for the front of the card in Starry Sky Ink onto a strip of Basic White cardstock measuring 5/8″ x 4 1/4″.
The clouds come from the Trucking Along stamp set and are stamped in Gray Granite Ink.
Use the torn piece of copy paper again to create the inside of the card. Stamp the trees that are in the background with Starry Sky Ink. Then as you move closer, stamp the trees in Mossy Meadow Ink then Blackberry Bliss Ink. Use a Small Blending Brush and a light layer of the Starry Sky Ink to make the snowdrifts.
Stamp the sentiments for the inside of the card in Starry Sky Ink.
Adhere all of the corresponding cardpieces. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the front panel.
Use the 2022-24 In Color Pearls for the Bling by applying 3 of the Starry Sky pearls.
This is a 5″ x 7″ card.
Starry Sky cardstock card base: 7″ x 10″ scored at 5″.
Basic White cardstock: 4″ x 6″ and 5/8″ x 4 1/4″
One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4″ x 6″
Blackberry Bliss cardstock: two at 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″
Hello! Welcome to Bruno & Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for October 2023. I’m Theresa with Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I have a Hello card made with the Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks for you today. I am so glad you are joining me!
We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world, interested in building a successful Stampin’ Up! business. My goal this year is to continue to participate in the monthly Blog Hop. I will be showing the card I send my customers when they order from me. This blog hop is full of ideas and creative inspiration! Be sure to visit everyone’s blog by clicking on the links at the end of my blog.
Pumpkin Pie cardstock: 4 1/4″x 5 1/2″ (for diecutting the 2nd from the largest Deckled Circles Die)
Basic White card stock: 2″ x 3″, 4″ x 5 1/4″ and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (for diecutting the 4th from the largest Deckled Circles Die)
Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks
Layering Leaves stamp set for the sentiment
Autumn Leaves Dies
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Lemon Lime Twist, Parakeet Party, Granny Apple Green, Pecan Pie and Early Espresso
Small Blending Brushes (at least 2 packs)
Real Red & Burlap Ribbon Combo Pack
Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots
Blending the Flower Petals
Diecut the Deckled Circle from the Basic White cardstock.
Secure it to a piece of scrap paper with removable adhesive.
Secure the scrap paper to the work space with tape.
Lay the #1 Decorative Mask over your Deckled Circle cardpiece as desired. Take note of where the notch along the edge of the mask is. Use a pen to draw a line along that edge to help with placement of the next masks.
Secure the Decorative Mask with some removable tape (sticky note tape).
Use a Small Blending Brush and the Daffodil Delight Ink to apply ink along the tips of the flower petals. You can make this as light or as dark as you wish. See photo above on left.
Now use another Small Blending Brush and the Cajun Craze Ink. Apply a layer of ink around the center circle.
Lastly blend in Pumpkin Pie Ink with a third blending brush to complete the flower petals.
Carefully remove the mask without disturbing the cardpiece.
Blending the Leaves
Lay the #2 mask with the leaves by matching up the notch on the edge of the mask with the mark you made on the scrap paper.
Secure the mask with removable tape.
Use a clean Small Blending Brush to apply the Lemon Lime Twist Ink to the leaves first. Then apply the Parakeet Party Ink leaving a bit of the Lemon Lime Twist showing on the upper edge of each leaf.
Finish the leaf by blending in some of Granny Apple Green Ink along the bottom edge of each leaf.
Carefully remove the mask.
Blending the Center of the Flower
The last 2 masks will complete the center of the flower.
Lay mask # 3 over the card piece matching the notch. Secure it with the removable tape.
Use a Small Blending Brush to apply the Pecan Pie Ink.
Carefully remove mask #3.
Lay mask #4 over the card piece, matching the notch and securing it to the scrap paper.
Apply Early Espresso Ink.
Remove the mask.
Tip: Be sure to keep the masks away from your cardpieces as they will have residual ink on them. Rinse them in water. Use a mild soap if needed.
Blending the Flower for the Inside
Repeat the above process to blend on a small flower in the lower right-hand corner of the Basic White cardstock for the inside of the card.
Adhere this piece to the inside of the Cajun Craze cardstock card base.
Assemble the Card
Use the Deckled Circles Die to diecut from the Pumpkin Pie cardstock.
Adhere the Basic White cardstock card piece with the flowers on it to the Pumpkin Pie cardstock circle.
Position the circles on the front of the Cajun Craze cardstock card base and trim any excess that is on the left border.
Adhere this to the card base.
Use Early Espresso Ink and the “Hello” sentiment from the Layering Leaves stamp set to stamp onto the 2″ x 3″ Basic White cardstock. Diecut with the label die from the Autumn Leaves Dies. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front.
Tie a bow with the Burlap Ribbon and adhere to the card front with a few Mini Glue Dots.
Bling! Apply the Rustic Metallic Dots as desired.

Hello and welcome to a Sketch Challenge with Autumn Leaves Dies! I am Theresa McEntee, creator of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. Today I have the pleasure of participating in the Blog Hop with Around the World on Wednesday (AWOW) organized by Angie McKenzie.
On the second Wednesday of each month, the AWOW team put together a thematic hop to give you some inspiration for your own crafting. This Sketch Challenge and the question on whether to add a bow or not is this month’s theme.
I found this Sketch Challenge to be, well, challenging. I had fallen in love with the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper and Autumn Leaves Dies. So I decided to play around with the different designs and colors. I love the little leaves in the dies!
My Project for today
I chose this color combination to be in line with the colors in the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper-Moody Mauve and Pretty Peacock. I did make this card using Basic White cardstock, but in retrospect, I should have used Very Vanilla cardstock. If I make another card, I will use the Very Vanilla cardstock.
Very Vanilla cardstock card base: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″
Very Vanilla cardstock: 3″ x 5″, 3/8″ x 2″ (sentiment) and 4″ x 5 1/4 (inside)
Moody Mauve cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″
Pretty Peacock cardstock: 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ (to diecut leaves)
Moody Mauve/Foil design of All About Autumn DSP: 1 1/8″ x 1 1/8″, 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ (to diecut leaves) and 3/8″ x 3 1/2″ (inside)
Pretty Peacock/Foil design: 1 1/8″ x 1 1/8″, 1″x 1 1/2″ (to diecut leaf) and 3/8″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
Moody Mauve/Pretty Peacock/Very Vanilla/Foil design: 1 3/8″ x 1 3/8″ and 3/8″ x 4 1/2″ (inside)
Burnish the fold of the Very Vanilla cardstock card base with your Bone Folder.
Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the All About Autumn DSP strips to the 4″x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock to make the inside panel. Adhere it to the inside of the Very Vanilla card base.
Adhere the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Moody Mauve cardstock to the front of the Very Vanilla cardbase.
Position the 3″ x 5″ Very Vanilla cardstock slightly to the right and adhere in place.
Now adhere the Pretty Peacock cardstock to the card front on the left side.
Set up all of the squares of the All About Autumn Designer Series on the card front, and then adhere them.
Diecut the little leaves, place them where you like and adhere.
Stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock Ink. Adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Add the Blooming Pearls as desired.

Autumn Leaves stamp set & dies
Scalloped Contours Dies
Copper Clay Ink
Gold & Vanilla 3/8″ Satin Edged Ribbon
Stampin’ Dimensionals & Mini Dimensionals
Mini Glue Dot
Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
Fold the Copper Clay cardstock card base in half and set aside.
Stamp the sentiment in Copper Clay Ink onto the 5/8″ x 2 3/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock. Cut the right-hand end into a banner.
Die cut all of the leaves, scalloped rectangles and the veins for the leaves.
Remove the protective backing on the Gold Glimmer Paper and adhere the veins to the corresponding leaves.
Adhere the Copper Clay/Foil scalloped rectangle to the front of the Copper Clay cardstock card base.
Stampin’ Dimensionals are used to adhere the Gold Foil scalloped rectangle to the card front.
Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or the Stampin’ Seal to adhere the Very Vanilla cardstock scalloped rectangle to the Gold Foil layer.
Arrange the leaves on the Very Vanilla cardstock scalloped rectangle. I started with the Mossy Meadow/Foil leaves in the background. A Mini Stampin’ Dimensional was applied to the back of the tip of the right-hand Mossy Meadow/Foil leaf to raise it up a bit.
Add the Copper Clay/Foil leaf using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Slide the White/Foil leaves behind the Copper Clay/Foil leaf. Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals are on the back of the tip of each leaf.
Use a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back of the middle of the sentiment and glue on either end. Adhere to the card front. This gives the sentiment banner a wavy look.
To adhere the small Gold Glimmer Paper maple leaf, apply a Stampin’ Dimensional to it without removing the protective backing. Adhere to the left of the sentiment.
Make a small bow using the Gold & Vanilla 3/8″ Satin Edged Ribbon. Adhere to the card front using a Mini Glue Dot.
Complete the inside by adhering the 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ strip of the Copper Clay/Foil DSP to the right-hand side of the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock. Adhere 2 oak leaves diecut from the Gold Glimmer Paper. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card base.
I hope you enjoyed my gratitude card today using the Autumn Leaves Bundle. I really loved sharing it with you!
