  • Pictures of Fall

    A fun card, featuring a polaroid framed scarecrow in a cornfield along w/ a mini polaroid of pumpkins & a sunflower. Perfect for fall & Thanksgiving. Entirely die cut & easy to customize w/ any colors you like.

    For the Inspiration Challenge IC933), we are visiting Lake Effect Gallery & their Pinterest Board. THIS was my inspiration picture. The fall images & pictures all laid out made me think of of polaroid pictures so that’s the direction I went. Except for the greeting, my card is entirely die cut. I had a bunch of scraps of fall colors sitting out from a previous card, so I used them to die cut all the pieces of my scarecrow, cornfield, sunflowers & pumpkins. Sometimes it actually works out when you don’t put everything away. I die cut the 2 sizes of polaroid frames (sm in white & lg in rust) & backed them w/ card board to elevate & give them some sturdiness.

    I did add a bit of shading here & there w/ a few Copic markers. After stamping the greeting, it was a just a matter of putting the die cuts together & arranging them inside the frames.

  • Snowflake Love

    A big congrats to Cindy, the newest Featured Stamper (FS861)! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the Love part & the layout, but I made mine a Christmas theme, used snowflakes & different colors.

    For my silvery snowflake card, I wanted it to be really shiny so I glued a heavy weight aluminum foil to card stock then die cut it twice: first w/ a mini slimline then w/ a piercing die of flowers & swirls. It looks terrific in person, but it’s so hard to photograph. I also die cut some snowflakes & the Love out of the same foiled cardstock. The flowers & leaves were die cut out of 3 shades of blue & silver snowflakes attached on top. The greeting says ” Peace. Love. Joy” but I replaced the Love word w/ the die cut version.

    I used a dk blue snowflake paper for the sides. I die cut it w/ the same mini slimline die then cut it in half & attached it on either side of the foil panel.

  • Most of All You

    A very quick & easy card w/ lots of possibilities. Change the small words of the greeting or the flower colors & you have a different card. Lots of different small greetings in this set as well as a coordinating stencil to color the flower.

    A big congrats to Girlia, the newest Featured Stamper (FS859)! She has a lovely gallery & I cased THIS pair of cards. I kept the layout w/ the quilted look bg & big flower, but I used stamps & a stencil instead of die cut flower & a divided greeting instead of a monogram.

    My card is very easy & quick. I used a quilted look piercing die on the white background. The big flower was stamped & I used a 3 part stencil to sponge the ink colors onto the flower before die cutting it. The YOU part is a stamp/die combo that comes w/ the flower set & I added the rest of the greeting on a small tag.

    I used a shimmer spray on the flower, but it’s very hard to tell in the pictures. The center part of the flower was stamped again, stenciled & fussy cut to pop up on top of the original flower.
