 Hello friends!

I used a plaid embossing folder for the background (Sizzix) and a Spellbinder (old) 
die set to cut out the image.

My second card is for fall as well.
I made a Z-fold card.

I used another Spellbinder die for this card front and an IO die for the sentiment inside.

The wood embossing folder is from Sizzix.

Thanks for visiting today!

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today, I have mixed media pumpkins to share.  I used the Peculiar Pumpkins and the new Spooky Jack Halloween Greeting to make this card.

I started this by mixing up some orange water color, and then I slapped it onto the cover of my MISTI (spooky, I know).  I know some of you panicked, but look at the cool grid pattern I got on the top left.  After the paper panel dried, I stamped the pumpkins and greeting.  I did two panels so I stamped the pumpkins again on the other sheet and fussy cut them.  I popped up half of them after sponging with Tim Holtz DOX in black soot, plus I added one to the sentiment since the pumpkin in the base sentiment is a bit scary.

I also sponged the black soot around the edge of  panel, tied on some twine, and then added black Stickles to all the noses and the top right corner. 

Super easy card.

Hope your week is going easy too.  




S’More Wishes

>> Tuesday, September 26, 2023

Hi Everyone,
I've been out of town, and I was overly ambitious in thinking I could make a fall card to show off here on the blog.  So, until I get back in stamping mode, here are a couple of cards I made for friends and family before I left. 

This was a get-well card that I made using S'more Birthday Greeting and Smooshed S'more.  I separated the greeting and replaced it with the words get well from the Get Well Prayer stamp.  Otherwise, I copied myself from the card on this post. 

This was a quick card that I made for my dog loving cousin. All I did was use an embossed dog themed background and made it a 4 1/4" square card, just to be a little different.  

And here is the inside greeting...

Here are the stamps I used:
Doggie Dilemma Dog with Fence

I think the someone special greeting on the front may be retired, however, you can find that phrase as part of the Special Birthday Wishes Greeting.

Thanks for dropping in!


Fall Friendsgiving...

Today for or my card, I used the new HAPPY FRIENDSGIVING - 232G and paired it with the BOUNTIFUL BASKET - 791L for a great fall themed friendship card.

Here is a peek at the inside of the card. I used the new YOU MAKE FRIENDSGIVING SPECIAL GREETING - 235E and stamped a portion of the BOUNTIFUL BASKET - 791L in grey in the bottom right corner leaving it uncolored.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card this week.

I used 3 spider rhinestones at the bottom.

My second card uses DRS Stamps: Silhouette Witch Cauldron and Halloween Arc

The background was made using a marbling technique using shaving cream and re-inkers.
I stamped over the background using Versafine Claire.

Thank you for visiting today, go get crafty!




Dragon Eye

>> Wednesday, September 20, 2023

Hello Crafty Friends.

The DRS Designs' Eyes for You Greeting is one of my favorites - especially for Halloween and fantasy cards.  I used it on this really fun dragon eye that I sketched with a Sharpie marker and then inked and water colored.

I was inspired by THIS card by Brian, a card artist I really admire. I added some white gel pen highlights to the eyeball and then covered it all in clear fingernail polish (closest medium to me - lol).  I also had some gold flakes on the table, so I added a few of them. 

Here are some other cards made with this sentiment that you might like to look at:

Eyes Shaker Card - fun to see how Julie used the little eyes in the shaker
Eye Glass Card - Julie used the sentiment with glasses full of love
Spooky Skull - Robin used it with the Scary Skull image
Scary Skull - Robin used with the Scary Skull again 
Fish Eyes - I used it with some fish highlighting their eyes

There are other ideas if you use the search feature of this blog and type in Eyes For You. 

Hope your week is going well.

Hi Everyone,

I don't use the Stained-Glass stamps near enough.  They really elevate a stamp that has been used many times, into something new!  I stamped the Fall Leaf with Acorn inside the Small Stained-Glass stamp, but there are various sizes of stained-glass stamps to choose from.

I colored up the leaf and acorn and then did a gradient coloring on the stained glass portion.  For the background I used a fall leaf embossing folder and the Open Leaf stamp that I colored up to match. 

The new You Make Friendsgiving Special Greeting (235E) was the perfect pairing for the images.  

Thanks for stopping by!
