Pretty Cards & Paper - October

Stampin' Up!'s Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper can be found in the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue and it's a fun pack of paper to use for your wintery crafting. You could use the coordinating Whimsical Trees stamp set with this DSP but I've decided to pair the Christmas to Remember stamp set for my card today.
Although this paper has a lot of pink in it, there are some great designs to create non-traditional Christmas cards or other holiday projects. The specialty part of the paper is the silver foil added to some of the designs like on the snowflakes on the piece I used to cover the card base of this card.
What do you think about using pink for your holiday crafts? Yay or nay?

So wonderful of you to stop on by to see my project. Next up you can visit these other blogs to see what they are sharing with us today:

Snowy Peaceful Cabin Christmas Card

The weather here in Southeastern Ontario is currently not snowy or cold. It's the middle of October and I still have the A/C on! Not that it would be snowing but I'm hopeful that the weather stays warm that I might be able to harvest some more yellow beans from the garden before the frost kicks in. This was my reaction to uploading this picture to my blog today. What am I doing sharing Christmas cards when it's so nice outside? The main reason is to inspire you for what products you may want to craft with for the upcoming holidays as there are only 74 days to Christmas. Deep breath! 
The Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper has silver accents on 6 of the designs. Each of Stampin' Up!'s designer series papers have 12 sheets, 6 designs, 2 of each design.

Colour Combo Blog Hop - October

Welcome to October's Colour Combo blog hop! Our colours for today's hop are Coastal Cabana, Basic Gray and Real Red. My first thought was to create a Christmas card using the Penguin Place stamp set but my nephew loves penguins and I needed a card just for him!
What do you think of Real Red for the beak and feet? I debated using an orange instead but wanted to stick to the colours of this challenge. The feet were stamped on a scrap piece of paper to lessen the strength of the ink.

Global Stamping Friends - Wood Grain

Welcome to October, one of my favourite months of the year & the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop. Today we are sharing projects that use Stampin' Up! products featuring wood grain. It was hard to choose what I wanted to use. There are a few, alright maybe many, items that I love and couldn't fit them all on one project!
To give a wood grain feel/look to this card I used 3 different products together: the Peaceful Cabin stamp set & Cabin dies (bundle), the Cork specialty paper and the Harvest Meadow designer series paper. The strip of DSP used at the bottom of the card started out as one of the Crumb Cake designs with white plants, then embossed using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and finally inked with Crumb Cake ink.
An awesome colour pallet for autumn! Warm colours and while it doesn't have wood grain it made me happy to create using this DSP. With Canadian Thanksgiving next weekend, it was the perfect time to make a thanks card. Do you make thank you cards or treat packaging to give out at Thanksgiving or other holidays?
