Mixed Media Pumpkins

Hello Everyone,
I am hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year.  I wanted to put a few Fall decorations.  I put together two pieces: framed decorative paper and a mixed media piece.

I trimmed the pumpkin decorative paper to fit the frame.  Easy and oh so cute.






For the second piece started with a pattern from a quilt book.  I decided I did not have time to make this from fabric.  I traced the shapes on cardstock, cut out and layered with three colors of cardstock. 
I added some glitter glue for the details on the pumpkins and leaves.  The tendrils are hemp twine.

The Pumpkins were mounted on a canvas covered with cotton fabric. 












I also did another of the framed decorative paper.  I will pick up a couple of the pie size pumpkins and that should make the house look pretty festive.  What do you have going for Thanksgiving this year? 

I also have Thanksgiving cards coming up in the next post.
Hope you are having a great day.

See you next time

Hello All,
Stopping in to share a cute Birthday card perfect for a child.  This card was made for a sweet four year old.  Here favorite colors are pink  and purple.  Sooooo.....




I used an easel  design and added lots of detail.  The fairy image was colored with copic markers.   The card was also personalized with the child's name.









Second version using same stamp.  Also a birthday card for a sweet 5 year old.






Stamped five word stamps together to create this cute inside sentiment.

Ink Pad Background Part 2

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today, I have the second part of the cards I made using a Kaleidacolor ink pad to create a background.
The background pieces were  made by pressing the CS into a kaleidacolor ink pad.  The pad was in the position where the pads are slightly apart.  This is the position the pads are in for storage.  Part one can be viewed here










Try this!  It is very simple and can be used for any type of project.  Hope you enjoyed the cards!

Fall is upon us again.  Today, I will be out side digging up the dahlia and cana lilies for storage until spring.  I have an order of bulbs coming next week.  So, I will have plenty of blooms for early spring.  What are you planning in your garden this fall??  Let me know.  Have a super day!!

See soon.

Ink Pad Background

Hello Everyone!
I am back after a short blogging break.  I have lots of fun stuff to share with you.  Today, I have a group of cards made with background pieces made by pressing the CS into a kaleidacolor ink pad.  The pad was in the position where the pads are slightly apart.  This is the position the pads are in for storage.    I think this was a very easy technique and really made a fun background.  I made two colors ways and will show the second color in my next post.

A paper doily, ribbon,  and die cut birds (Stampin' Up) were used to complete the composition.   








So glad you stopped by today and I will see you soon for the other samples made using this technique.
