Wandering Words meets Autumn Days

I wanted to make a very colorful card with fall colors. I got my inspiration from Stampin' Up's! Designer Series Paper "Autumn Traditions." I started out with Kraft cardstock and randomly stamped the leaves in different colors and since I just had to try out this new stamp I thought I might has well use my markers and do the leaves on the stamp in different colors. I really love how this card turned out, may have to make another one.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by :-)

Thank you card using Outline Stickers.

Hi, just wanted to try these stickers that I received as a gift. They are outline stickers that come in various designs. Thought they would look cute on a 3x3 card as they are just the right size.
I placed the sticker onto Very Vanilla and then painted the flowers with Twinkling H2O's (shimmery watercolors) because I like shimmer & sparkle! I used the 1 1/2 inch circle punch to cut it out and layered onto the Bermuda Bay Scallop. A little ribbon and a white gel pen to put some dots on the scallop. I really like how this turned out, I may have to make some more.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Loving the weather here in Illinois, in the 70's, gotta love that global warming! Thanks for stopping by :-)

Fabulous Friend Birthday

My Fabulous Friend Laurie will be celebrating her birthday on Monday and this is the card I made for her. She loves "Orange" shades of orange and Cats. So with that in mind, I chose
"A Kind Word" stamp set. I stamped the image with Black Stazon onto watercolor paper. I then water colored the image with water and ink smooched onto the lid of the pad. I start with the lightest color and work my way up to the darker colors. I painted around her in Bashful Blue to give the image some depth. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
As always..... thank you for taking time to stop by my blog :-)

A Dashing Christmas

I received my Holiday Mini pre-order and just had to use some of the "new" Designer Series Paper Christmas Cocoa! I started with a scrap piece of whisper white cut at 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
I cut the DSP the same size and adhered it to the Whisper White and then ran it through the Big Shot. This makes it a lot easier to tie the ribbon! Dasher was stamped with Versamark and then applied Heat & Stick Powder, heated until melted and then I used the Chocolate Fine Super Nova Glitter and re-heated. Sentiment stamped with Real Red onto Shimmery White Cardstock and layered onto Real Red using the Word Window and Modern Label Punches. Hope everyone is having a great week.

Simply Scrappin' Christmas

I do more card making than scrap booking so I never got the Simply Scrappin' Kits until last year. This paper and die cuts are from last years Simply Scrappin Kit - I Wish. I had a couple of die cuts left over so I thought I would put them to good use. I started with Kraft paper for card base 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I Wish DSP cut at 4 x 5.25 inches as the background. Photo corners punched out from I Wish DSP and Chocolate Chip. I used a 2-Way Glue Pen and added some Dazzling Diamonds to the ornaments and tied gold elastic cord on the tops. Used Dimensionals to pop them up off the page. Stamped my sentiment layered with scallop oval. These die cuts make card making easy. Check out this years Simply Scrappin' Kit - Christmas Jingle!
This Kit coordinates with the Tree Trimmings Stamp Set.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week :-)

Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 2

I am loving the new Curtain Call Color Challenge at Stacey's Stamping Stage! I must give her a "Great Big Congratulations" for her accomplishments. Rising Star #13 at Convention this past week. How exciting! This beautiful towel set reminded me of the Fresh Cuts stamp set and thought it would look great on the Fresh Cuts Note Cards. Add a Button from Button Latte with a little bit of crochet thread and the Bravo Burgundy as a background and this makes for an easy thank you card.

Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 1

Stacey's Stamping Stage unveiled a new look and a new Color Challenge and I just had to participate! Love the colors and the bedding so I thought I would recreate my own version.
I started with a Whisper White base then using the Sizzlets Little Leaves Die I cut out Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy leaves. I put the Not Quite Navy leaves down first using Tombo Multi-Mono adhesive then I put the Night of Navy just off center of the Not Quite Navy Leaves.
Thanks for stopping by :-)
