  • Thankful Pumpkins

    An easy to make Thanksgiving card using some brand new dies. Just add some fall paper and assemble. Love the outline pumpkins..so fun to try it out using a variety of colors or papers & the bubble border dies add a special touch to the layers.

    A big congrats to Raye Lynn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS870). She has cute little gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I know it doesn’t look very similar, but things happened. I started to make a little window like hers, but my die cut was too big so I put a layer on top. Then it looked kind of plain, so I added the designer paper. Then I wanted some more color so I added the bubbly green border layers. And the die cut would only fit horizontally, so I turned my card. Otherwise, it’s identical.

    The outline part of the pumpkins was die cut out of dk brown & I added a stiff cardboard to the back to pop it up & give it stability. The dies for the pumpkin inserts were cut out of dotty paper from the same pack as the leaf print. Then I attached all the layers. It was then I noticed I had a spot just big enough for the ‘thankful’ word. Thank goodness for the Misti, so I could stamp it more than once, since my layers were already put together.

    so much for stopping by!

  • Grateful Autumn

    A fall sunflower & leaf bouquet in bright autumn colors with gold embossed outlines. Since the images are layered flowers, you only have to ink the layers to get the colors filled in. The flowers & leaves have matching dies making this an easy card that only looks hard to do.

    It’s my turn to host the Inspiration Challenge (IC931) & I chose the quilting/sewing supply shop named RebsFabStash & their Pinterest Board. THIS lovely fabric was the inspiration for my autumn card. I used 3 sets of flowers, 1 set of leaves & random dot bg images for my gold embossed card. All of the flowers & leaf outlines were gold embossed then put back into the Misti. These flowers are all layered images so I inked the different layers w/ the autumn colors to fill in the flower petals. For the leaves, I smooshed the ink onto an acrylic block, picked the color up w/ a water brush then painted them in. I used the matching dies for all of these & die cut an extra little leaf out of the same brushed gold paper I used to layer the black on. The tiny greeting was black embossed onto this leaf.

    Some of the flowers & leaves were popped up for a little dimension.

  • Red Holiday Door

    With this bright cheery holiday door, there’s no place like home for the holidays. A few die cuts, a greeting & a lightly stenciled brick facade complete this mini slimline card.

    For the Inspiration Challenge (IC924), we visited DeWinton Paper Co & their Pinterest Board. I chose THIS for my inspiration.

    My mini slimline was fairly easy. I die cut the parts for the door w/ the added winter door parts out of red, white & green scraps. I didn’t use all the dies that come w/ both of these sets. After putting them together, I took a white pencil & a red Copic and added a little distressing to the door. I used a white Posca pen to add some snow on top of a few areas. A repeating brick stencil was used for the appearance of a brick facade behind the door.

    I used a red Posca pen to add the berries on the wreath & topiary. The greeting was stamped under the door & I colored & die cut a little holly pine cone element to place in the corner next to the greeting.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
