Mason Jar and Flowers Handmade Card

Jar of Love Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

 Fall is such a lovely time of year.  The colors all seem bolder and brighter.  There's a crispness in the air that is invigorating.  It's time to pull out the hoodies and snuggle up on the porch with a cup of steaming hot chocolate.  It time to rake up the leaves and then run and jump in them.  Hint: It's best to do the latter activity with a child.  Their giggles  and laughter  make raking leaves an adventure.   With the help of the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars Framelits, I tried to capture a little of that bright, bold invigorating autumn feeling with a handmade card.

Jar of Love Card Making Tips

The flowers in the Jar of Love stamp step involves 2-step stamping.  Instead of using two different ink pads for each flower, I used one pad and stamped off the first layer and then stamped the second layer full strength.

I was sure how I was going to lay out this card, so I simply began stamping and cutting lots of flowers and a jar.  Then, I added a Stampin' dimensional to back of each before arranging my flowers.  After I was satisfied with the way they looked, I stuck them in place.  The new mini Dimensionals were perfect for the little Fresh Fig Flowers.

Copper Trim and Gold Mini Sequin Trim add just the right amount of shine.  It almost looks like a sun shiny autumn day.

Color Inspiration for today's card came from the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge-Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze with Metallics for dessert.  Find out more about this week's Color Challenge Here.

Painted Harvest After Hurricane Card

Painted Harvest Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

In the wake of all the recent hurricanes, it seems that everybody knows somebody that has been affected.  Today's Painted Harvest Card is my after Hurricane Card.  I combined two stamp sets-Painted Harvest and Sorry For Everything-to make today's bright and cheerful card.  Believe it or not, the crisp black and white plaid paper is actually  from the  Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper Pack.

Card Making Tips & Tricks

To Create my focal point, I cut a watercolor paper circle with my Stitched Shapes Thinlits Dies and watercolored it with Daffodil Delight Ink.

Painted Harvest is a 2-Step stamp set.  Translated, it super easy to stamp a layered look.  I used Peekaboo Peach and Pumpkin Pie for the Sunflower and Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive for the leaves.

I inked a stamp from the Sorry for Everything stamp set with a Basic Black Marker, so that I could use only part of the stamp ("That things fell apart).  

A few small accessories ( Basic Black Baker's Twine, a snip of a Delicate White Doily and a Corrugated Element) and my card was complete.

The only question is How Many Should I  Make to send?  Do you know people that were affected by the recent hurricanes?  Send a card; Send a Hug!

Pocket Card-Count My Blessings

Pocket Card-Count My Blessings

Hello Friends,

If you like Fancy Fold Cards, you'll love the simplicity of the Pocket Card.  Today's card was made with the Count My Blessings stamp set.  The Pocket was made with just plain Very Vanilla Card Stock stamped and colored.  The Oak branches were stamped with Soft Suede Ink randomly across my card stock.  I then chose to color just the acorns using my Old Olive Watercolor Pencil and a Blender Pen.  The popped up "Thinking of You" was cut with the Stitched Shapes Thinlits Dies.
