Handmade Cards

The Best Kind of Mail is Sent With Love


Harvest Hellos Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

It's so much fun to open the mailbox and find a handmade card or gift made with love.  Yesterday's happy mail was a sweet handmade card made by my grandson, Colten.  Tucked inside was this adorable pair of happy earrings along with a note that said, "The earrings look like Nana".  Let me just say, my heart was in a puddle when I opened that envelope.


Harvest Hellos Stampin' Up!

This darling gift is my inspiration for today's card.  I tried to capture the essence of the earrings with a card.  The Pumpkin is from the Harvest Hellos stamp set and the leaves are from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set.  The earrings have a subtle texture so I added texture to my card with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

Making a Gorgeous Autumn Card

Country Home Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today's Autumn Thank You Card was inspired by the Plaid Tidings Designer paper and its burst of colors.  Coloring is a great way to dispel the stresses of life and this card offers lots of opportunities for coloring.  I used the Country Home and the Harvest Hellos stamp sets to create this charming autumn scene, then I went to work coloring with my much loved Stampin' Blends.  With its random patterns and colors, this card is a lot like autumn in Ohio.

Autumn in Ohio

Sorry I couldn't resist sharing a little Ohio Humor.  Now let's get back to the details of making a gorgeous autumn card.

Coming Home Stampin' Up!

Today's card consists of mostly stamping and coloring.  I did splatter a bit of ink and scatter some sequins to add a bit of interest to the background.  The leaves were stamped on Plaid Tidings Designer paper with Cinnamon Cider Ink and then fussy cut.  Believe it or not, the pumpkin was cut using the Apple Builder Punch.  It coordinates with the Harvest Hellos stamp set which includes both a pumpkin and an apple.
