Time to Get Cozy

 Hello Everyone!

The Fall weather is here!  Nice and cool.  Time to cozy up and wear your favorite sweater.  Oh, yeah, and don't forget raking leaves!

This little guy is having a blast raking those fall leaves!  So cute!

Images are colored with Copic markers.  

Stamps:

Seasons of Fun - Stampin' Up

Sentiments: Gettin' Cozy - The Greetery

Used lots of fall colors for the cardstock and ribbons. I actually used all my yellow CS!  Guess I need to replace that.  Haven't found the right shade of yellow yet.

These are all going out in the mail to friends and family.  Get Cozy and have a lovely day!!

Gold Leaf Flower

 Hello Everyone!

Feeling the cool down here in Michigan. Love it!  Nice and cool at night too.  

Wanted to share a card I made with a really great stamp set from Stampin' Up called Art Gallery.  I made lots of cards using this set and will be posting them over the next month or so.  

I used a glue pad to apply the gold leaf.  This flower stamp is a two step stamp.  I used the stamp that would be used as shading and applied the glue from the glue pad.  I stamped as would normally do.  And then applied the gold leaf to the glue area.  Worked really well.  

 I did not add sentiments yet.  I will add sentiments later. 








So glad you stopped by today. See you next time for a few more of the Gold Leaf Flower cards.  I also have a coffee themed Halloween card coming up in October.  See you soon!

Whole Page Stamping Part Two

Hello Everyone,

Back today with more of my whole page stamping cards.  

Stamps: Artistically Inked and A Touch of Ink from Stampin' Up

I stamped a whole page of white cardstock and cut into pieces.

Here is the whole sheet.




This is card number two.  The first card can be seen in the previous post.  Again, I made a larger card.  This one is 5 x 6.5.  







Inside of card.


I had so much fun with this technique that I stamped another sheet.  I made the card below with that.
I added some die cuts to this piece.  I did not add any sentiments.  I will decide on that later when I want to give the card to someone special.


So glad you stopped by today.  I always enjoy sharing my projects with other crafty persons.  

See you again soon!

Whole Page Stamping Part One

 Hello Everyone!

Back today with a series of cards I made from a whole page stamping.  I stamped a 8.5 x 11 piece of white cardstock and then cut it into smaller pieces for my cards.

I used the Stampin' Up stamp set called Artistically Inked.  Humming bird is from A Touch of Ink (Stampin' Up).  Inks are Ranger Adirondack.  

Below is the whole sheet of cardstock that I filled with stamped images.




I made two large cards from this sheet.  Below is the first card.  It is a 5.5 inch square.  I will share the second card in my next blog post.



The sentiment is stamped on velum and punched out. Humming Bird is fussy cut.




See another card I made with this set here.  I will be back with more of the cards made with the whole page stamping in the next post.  I found this technique very enjoyable.  Really lets you get  creative and the card comes together easily.

See you soon.

Anniversary Card with Silver

 Hello Everyone!

Here today with a floral anniversary card. I used some new supplies from Stampin' Up.

Stamp and die  Bundle called Artistically Inked.  Inks are Ranger Adirondack.  

The large floral  die is cut from glitter paper.  I also added silver glitter glue, silver ribbons, and a silver heart charm.

The large flowers are stamped onto the white background and the swirly watercolor looking areas are also a stamp.  I used that stamp to fill in the background all around the large flower stamped images.







Inside of card.


Well, I like how this project turned out.  I will send this card to a special couple.  Wow, September already!! Summer went by pretty quickly.  See you next time with more cards.

Floral Friendship

 Hello Everyone!

I have been in the mood to make cards. I bought some new stamps and dies and have been making some things.  I made several friendship cards and a birthday card.  The flower was stamped with Ranger Adirondack inks and die cut.  I lucked out with this decorative paper.  The floral motif fit perfectly with the large die cut flower.  The first card is a friendship card with a bit of humor (see sentiment on inside). Stamps and dies from Stampin Up




Humorous sentiment on inside.  



Birthday version of same design.

So glad you visited today!  See you soon with more cards I made with this large flower.

Biking Fun!

 Hello Everyone!

Back today with a set of fun cards I made with a bicycle theme.  I made several of the cards to send to friends.  The image was stamped with black dye ink and colored with copic markers.  I made the clouds by using a cloud dry embossing folder.  I emboss sky blue cs and hand cut the clouds.  Stamps are from Stampin Up.





Such fun projects.  I put the dog in the basket (last card) for my dog loving friend.  So glad you stopped by today.  See you soon>
