Fall Mug of Tea

We’ve certainly had a cold snap here in New Hampshire this week, and I’ve been drinking a lot more tea!! So I thought I would share this fun card with you today. I started with a template that I picked up from mirkwooddesigns.com and printed it out onto a piece of Cajun Craze card stock. The flower stamp used to create my focal point is from the well-used and much-loved Heartfelt Thanks set, and the “happiness” stamp is from Warm Words. I added a stip of Always Artichoke punched with a scalloped border punch and a large chocolate chip brad for embellishment. My last step in creating the card was to spritz some Tattered Angels glimmer mist over the whole mug for some added interest. Then I “filled” my mug with Tazo tea, my favorite :o) This particular flavor is Green Ginger which is quite yummy!

Hello Little Pieces

I have a fun and simple card to share today. I made this with some retired SU stuff. I stamped shapes from Little Pieces on some Soft Subtles colors of cardstock and then punched them out using my little circle punch. I created a border for the circles by using the scoring blade of my paper cutter, and then stamped and embossed the "hello" sentiment from Sweet Shapes. Quick, easy, fun!!
Enjoy your Saturday ;o)

Pinecone Mulberry

Happy September Everyone!
My card for today is woodsy with just a touch of fall. :o) I created the focal point by using a resist technique on white mulberry paper with bavo burgoundy and always artichoke ink. Then for my background, I used a woodgrain stamp which I stamped in versamark ink and then embossed with clear powder for a tone on tone effect. I love the natural look and feel of this card.
Thanks for stopping by!
