Thinking of You- Leaves

Hello all,

Another rainy day in NY.   It is better than snow.  I'll take it.   

I'm really loving the leaf background by Concord and 9th.  I couldn't resist inking it up again.  I liked stamping on colored card stock. I usually stamp on white.      I made a video using this stamp on a fall card.  I hope you will check it out.  Click here to see video.

Hey Pumpkin Pie

Hello all,

I'm a bit behind on blogging.  Life has just been crazy with weddings, and family visits.   Summer has finally faded and lake season is over.    It is time to shift focus to all things fall.  Bring on the pumpkin spice! 

I've had this stamp for ages, but never had inked it up.   I was nervous about coloring pumpkin pie. I wasn't sure what to use to capture the rich orange brown color.   Then recently I was shopping for cardstock and found paper called Pumpkin Bread by (FSJ).    It was perfect.  I used the paper help me choose marker colors.  I love the final look.  This process is backwards of what I usually do.  I might need to work backwards more often. 

I hope you enjoy...

Winter Wonderland

Greetings!

I love making shaker cards.  It adds a fun element to a card.   Winter is coming and they are a perfect fit with snow.    I hope it looks like a snowy bank behind the deer.

Dancing Lady

Hello Party People!

Who doesn't love to dance?  This stamp has been in my collection a long time.   It is from AI.   A friend of mine, Cathy suggested that I do some paper piecing cards.   I had a dream (yep...) about this card.  I got up and just had to make it.   It was so much fun.... I ended making 7 of them.   What a fun way to use up some patterned paper.

America is Proud

Hello friends,

I'm asked often for cards to send to someone serving our country.  I thought it would be fun to make a red-white-blue card using this layering die.  I love the way it turned out.    The sentiment if from the Blue Knight Rubber stamps collection.  They have a wonderful selection of military stamps.
