Lovely As A Tree by Stampin' Up currently holds the spot of "my favorite set for fall cards" and this image in particular. I love how this looks with chalks rubbed directly on to the cardstock; they blend together so well. I used the Top Note die to frame the image and then mounted it onto a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock. For the lower half, I added a layer of More Mustard cardstock to bring in some more color and help frame the image. Then I used a piece of Chocolate Chip ribbon and a ribbon slide to separate the two. The sentiment is from PTI's Up,Up, and Away set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the fall :)
Are you enjoying the fall? I sure am; I went through a corn maze last weekend :) So I was inspired to make this classic fall card. The pumpkin image is from an old SU set called Fall Whimsy and I used watercolor crayons to color it in. I added some texture to the background by stamping SU's Linen background stamp and Close to Coco ink. The edge of the Pumpkin Pie paper strip was cut using MFT's wavy edge die. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Up, Up, and Away set.
Here's another card using SU's newest In Colors; I really like how they look with each other. The images are a wheel stamp by SU that coordinates with their Morning Cup set, it's called Take A Sip. The sentiment is from MFT's Miss You A Latte set (that I used for my last card). I used a Fiskars scalloped edge punch on the piece of Brown Sugar cardstock for some interest as well as a bit of Frosted Lace Stickies that I used on the big flower center of the green mug. This certainly made for a cheerful combination for my get well card :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy World Card Making Day everyone! Thanks for stopping by. With the arrival of fall here in New England, I've been enjoying pumpkin spice latte's lately and was inspired to create this card using My Favorite Things' set Miss You A Latte. My color scheme is Stampin' Up!'s newest In Color Collection - Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, and Coastal Cabana. I mounted my sentiment on a piece of corrugated cardboard for some dimension and just because it makes me smile.
I'm having fun today and celebrating by creating more cards and taking a break to see what others have created. How about you?
I am loving fall! The leaves here in New England are almost at peak. I went apple picking yesterday, and made a pumpkin cheesecake today. :) Next week I will have a fall card to share with you, but for today I chose to share a birthday card for a young man using SU's Extreme Skateboard image and patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket. I used an airbrush with an Old Olive marker to carry the distressed look of the patterned paper through the other elements along with a few strips of Going Grey cardstock. The sentiment is also stamped in Old Olive and is from PTI's Enjoy the Ride set.
Enjoy the fall! :)
Happy Monday all. Today's card was created for a wonderful, long-time friend of mine. The big, fun cupcake is a sticker from the Sweet Day collection by Echo Park, as is the colorful polka dot design paper. I mounted the sticker on some white cardstock that was run through my Big Shot using an embossing plate. The sentiment is from Enjoy the Ride by PTI and stamped in Ridding Hood Red ink. Lastly, the base of the card is dark, rich Early Espresso :)
Have a sweet day!
Isn't this bunny the sweetest? It's from a long retired SU set called New Little Someone. I haven't stamped with it in quite some time, but a coworker asked me for a card for a 1 year old little girl and in looking over my stamps I was reminded of it. I decided to color the bunny with water color crayons and just blend a little with my finger with the exception of the yellow bow which I colored in with a blender pen. The bottoms of his feet are covered with flocking and the ribbon is covered with Crystal Effects for some fun dimension and texture. My colors are So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, and Crumb Cake. Lastly, the sentiment is from the Enjoy the Ride set by Papertrey Ink.
