Autumn Leaves 07411
My card today is almost entirely bits of leftovers from other projects or backgrounds I didn’t use. The largest background is done on the backside of a piece of glossy card stock & has some kind of a coating on it..sort of semi glossy. The detail Leaf Pops were stamped w/ resist ink then brayered over using a rainbow ink pad. The white strip down the left side was stamped w/ the Fall Pops set using the same ink. The serpentine like glitter strip was a leftover & was made w/ a hot glue gun & glitter was sprinkled on while still hot. The large Solid Leaf Pop was stamped & die cut w/ the matching die. I added some little copper glitter acorns & squiggly pieces from the Oak Leaf die. I die cut an oval in the background & added the greeting underneath. It was first stamped w/ the resist ink, brayered then over stamped (slightly offset) w/ Versafine.

Here’s the inside using more leftovers. I used the oval cut out of the front to stamp the greeting.

NCC One Scoop 06839
This is for Dina’s Dare to Get Dirty Challenge! The details are HERE, but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member…it’s easy, just click to find out how.
For my first tasty treats card, I stamped the dish of ice cream first with Memento, colored it with Copics, then stamped over it with Versafine. It really brings out the details this way! After die cutting, I layered it on a larger label that was brayered with a rainbow ink pad. I used the same ink pad to brayer the large background then stamped the diagonal rows with the silhouette image from the What’s the Scoop set.  I used a banner die to cut the greeting & the outer die of the Flourished Star Pattern set to cut the outermost layer. Stickles was added for some sparkle.
Here’s a look at the inside using pieces leftover from the card front & also the Copics I used to color the image.

My second tasty treat, started much as my first…stamped, colored & stamped over with Versafine, then I fussy cut it.
NCC Ice Cream Shoppe 06861
The greeting sign was also colored & fussy cut before both were added to the die cut label and then to a larger peachy orange label. I stamped the pennant swag to match the paper I used & die cut with the matching pennant die. I also used one of the greetings to stamp in tone on tone colors on top of the designer paper background. Again, I added stickles for sparkle.

NCC Set Sail 06436
For my seafaring card, after stamping & coloring the sailboat, I used the two sizes of ODBD circle dies to cut it and my out of the box technique to keep from cutting off the mast. After edging the sailboat circle w/ a black marker, I cut a white circle to put behind it and a larger circle out of the same dp I used for the largest pennant. The background panels came about because I had less than a full sheet of the two large strips so I added a narrow piece of the starry dp between the two and attached them to a large white panel I die cut using the largest die of the Flourished Star Pattern set. A smaller pennant, some die cut stars & the compass rose were added to finish.

Here’s a look at the inside using some leftover pieces. NCC Set Sail inside 06442
The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

NCC Deer & Eagle cu 06461
Weekly-Favorite
My second card takes us to the mountains & forest. For this card, I got out my trusty little brayer and a rainbow ink pad and brayered over a large white panel. 
NCC Deer & Eagle 06456
I had the top white panel left after I die cut the white circle to back the sailboat card above, so I die cut it using the same Flourished Star Pattern die & used a slightly larger circle to make it a bit bigger and after determining the opening on the brayered panel, I stamped the mountain scene, did a little masking and stamped parts of it again to fill in. On the top white panel, I used a torn diagonal mask & brayered the same colors across it. I did even it up a tad using sponging. A reverse circle mask was used to sponge in the sun then I stamped the sun/eagle on top and the deer & tree at the bottom. The ground image was also stamped using the dark blue of the rainbow pad. I like how it just adds the hint of solid ground. The greeting was also stamped just under the circle opening.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and here’s a look at the inside using a leftover frame I had sitting around. I brayered it, stamped the tree, deer and the eagle.
