Season's Greetings


Happy Sunday Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch challenge this week at Crazy 4 Challenges.




 
My many layers version of the sketch!
 
I hadn't really intended to make this a Christmas card until I stared putting it all together and well, it just happened.
 
I stared out stamping the flower image from Petal Palette on some thick whisper white card stock.
I decided to color my roses red.
I used Real Red and my water brush for the flowers and Pear Pizzazz was used to color the leaves and to stamp the rest of the foliage.


Of course I reverted to using some DSP from he Wood Textures pack along with a bit of Real Red card stock.
The sentiment is from the Wishing You Well stamp set. I stamped with Real Red ink as well.
I added a twine bow and a few rhinestones to finish it up.
 

 
Thanks for stopping by today.

So Grateful


Happy Saturday Peeps!!

Today I have a card to share that I made using the sketch this week at

I love the Country Home stamp set and this image was a perfect fit for my card.
I stamped the old milk can and the fall arrangement image onto some thick whisper white card stock with black stazon.
I colored the old milk can to mimic one that I have, it had been painted white at some period in time and then it weathered over the years and is now rusty/white.
I used my water brush and ink pads in chocolate chip to paint the can.
 

 


The fall arrangement is colored using, several inks, old olive, pumpkin pie, rich razzleberry, blackberry bliss and chocolate chip.

I hen fussy cut them both out and added to my embossed piece. I used the Tin Tile folder on that. I wrapped some twine around and then used dimensionals to add the can and flowers.




The base of the card is Crumb Cake and of course, I used more Wood Textures DSP.
The sentiment is from the Country Home set and the enamel dots are non SU.

Thank you for stopping by.

All Hearts Come Home



Happy Friday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at 

At the lodge:

In the description of the challenge they wrote " Something wintry or Holiday would be perfect"
 
So I think this card fits.
 
I have been soooo hooked on the Woodgrain DSP pack, and I used it again on my card. I love the warmth it adds.






I used the Hearts Come Home stamp and die set for my card.
I created a small snow globe of sorts and I can imagine it sitting on the big wood mantle of  the fireplace at the lodge.
The house is stamped with real red and gray ink. The trees are stamped with old olive ink.





I got a bit lazy when finishing it up and instead of using embossing for my snow, I just whipped out my white gel pen and added some dots.

I took inspiration from the Stampin Up mini catalog from last Christmas on my card, changing it up and adding my own touches.

Thanks for stopping by today

Tin Tile Christmas


Happy Tuesday Peeps!

I am at my daughter's house this week, well the first half of the week anyways, out in the middle of no where in Missouri, and the internet is spotty at best. 
I am popping in quickly wih another card share.

I am loving this Tin Tile Impressions Folder that is new from Stampin Up.

I used it on some shiny silver paper I had  in my stash. It makes the prettiest design and I used it for my back ground on this card.  





The main images come from the Wishing You Well stamp set.

I stamped the wreath with Old Olive and the greeting and bow with Real Red



The DSP is from an unknown retired pack.

I added just a bit of linen thread and a few little rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by today!

CAS....Merry Christmas


Hello Peeps!

I have another card to share today, this one I made with the challenge at the Addicted to CAS
in mind.





The theme this week is Presents.

I pulled out his fun set again from Stampin Up called Christmas in the Making.

I stamped his cute image of a girl and her cat with presents on some thick whisper white card stock that I had die cut with a stitched rectangle. I used Black Stazon ink.


I then watercolored the image with my water brush and ink pads.
This was a really fun scene to color, some tiny spaces in this image too, so it was a bit challenging!
After getting it all colored I added a few little rhinestones around the image to add a bit of sparkle.
The sentiment was added at the bottom using Black Memento ink.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Harvest Blessings


Happy Saturday Peeps!!

Popping in with another card, I made this one using the challenge this week at Stamps, Ink Paper Challenge Gratitude and the challenge at The Card Concept Rustic Fall.



I used another really nice Sampin Up set that is great for anyone who loves to color,
Country Home.

I stamped two images onto thick whisper white and colored with my ink pads and water brush.


I fussy cut them out and added to my die cut circle with dimensionals.

The base of he card is Crumb Cake card stock. Next is a piece of DSP from the Woodgrain pack.
The yellow DSP is from a retired pack, and I matted it with a bit of gold foil paper.

I wrapped some jute twine around the middle and tied a pretty bow.
I added the image piece to the base with dimesionals and trimmed part of the circle off.

I stamped the sentiment with black memento ink and tucked it under he edge of the can.

I added a few rhinestones for a bit of sparkle.





Thanks for stopping by today.

Mojo Sketch.....Christmas in the Making



Happy Friday Peeps!

I have another card to share with you today, this one using the Mojo Monday sketch.


I used this fun, retired, set from Stampin Up called Christmas in the Making.
I really love it and had not got to play with it at all last year, so now that I am in a somewhat of a groove, I pulled it out.





I stamped the image with black stazon onto thick whisper white card stock and colored using my ink pads and aqua painter. 

I don' know tthe name of my DSP as it was just a scrap in my scrap pile. One side was the stripe and the other is the red design.

I added just a bit of silver glimmer paper at the bottom instead of scallops like the sketch shows.

The sentiment is from the set and is stamped with black Memento ink.


I finished up with a twine and silver bow with a few jingle bells, I love adding all the fun stuff o my cards but the reality is these type of card is not easily mailable.

But you can hand deliver or stick on a package or goodie tray, which is what I generally do. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Freshly Made Sketches...You're in my Thoughts





Happy Thursday Peeps!! 
I have had a busy week, grandbabies visiting, so fun but they keep me hopping 
and not much time for stamping.

So I am popping in quickly with a card I made for the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches

I used another favorite stamp set that I love to color, the retired Best Thoughts.
I used my flower to represent the circle element in the sketch.

I wanted to keep with a fall theme so I used Pumpkin Pie and Tangelo Twist to color the flower.

The card is very clean and simple, but I like it despite the fact that I generally love lots of "stuff and layers"!! 




I stamped with black stazon onto some thick Whisper White and colored using my paint brush.

I used Old Olive for the leaves. The flower was then fussy cut out and mounted to my second white panel with dimesionals. 

The sentiment comes from the same set and stamped with black memento ink.
I added only one embellishment, the white bow, made with bakers twine.
The white panel was added to the card base with dimensionals also.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Thank you


Happy Saturday Peeps!
Today I am sharing a Thank You card I made.
I love flower cards, as you all know, and I was in need of a thank you card so I decided on a fall themed one.

The flowers from the Beautiful Bouquet was stamped with Rich Razzleberry and Pumpkin Pie. The pumpkin pie flowers were stamped twice to acheive a darker color, closer to the DSP.







The base of the card is hick Whisper White and the DSP is from a retired pack called International Bazaar.
I die cut several leaves using the matching dies and tucked them in and around my flowers.

The sentiment comes from the Petal Palette stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by today.
