3-D Pumpkin

Saw this on pumpkin on square-headed stampers blog and loved it!!! So I made a card of my own using her pumpkin pattern. I tried to use a lot of earthy tones and I loved the words on every other splice of the pumpkin. Really easy card with a few extra twists. Ripped edges, direct to paper are the ones that really stand out on here.

STAMPS: En Francis, Embrace Life
INKS: Chocolate Chip
PAPERS: Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie
ACCESSORIES: Scallop Circle Punch

Fall Leaves

I cased the layout of this card because I really liked it (sorry I can't remember who). I just did it in this years Stampin' Up! In Colors. It is a simple card that says fall all over it! I love the fall because of the changing leaves and I am one of those that LOVES the smell of burning leaves. Fall is such a neat season with all the earthy colors and smells it just makes you want to be outside!

STAMPS: Falling Leaves, Holiday Best
INKS: Rich Razzelberry, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Dusty Durango
PAPERS: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, White, Rich Razzelberry
ACCESSORIES: Taupe Grosgrain (retired), Scallop Edge Punch

Here is one of the cards we did for Therapy Card Nite. I've been seeing the cards like this made with this set. It was great to show the girls another way to think out of the box with this set. I tried it on white and it didn't look quite right, but when I put it on the more mustard it looked alot better. See, color can make all the difference!

STAMPS: Pick a Petal
INKS: Not Quite Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Real Red & Pumpkin Pie markers
PAPERS: More Mustard, Close to Cocoa

My "Create"-ive Book

Yeah! After trying to upload this one here all day I ended up having to retake and re-uploading (if that is even a word) to get it to come out right!!! Never thought I needed a sketch book until I realized how often I am sketching something out on random pieces of paper that are laying all over my room!!! After seeing one of these on a fellow bloggers blog, I decided to make one myself to carry around with me. I also made one for my secret sis which I hope has come in handy for her too! And hey, who doesn't love these Razzelberry Lemonade Papers??? And I am sooo loving my Big Shot which I used to cut out c-r-e-a-t-e with the Go Go Boots Die!!! If you don't have a sketch book I do suggest that you get one soon or you may end up like me with lots of pieces of paper laying around your room with sketchs on them!!!

PAPERS: Razzelberry Lemonade DSP, Rich Razzelberry
ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Go Go Boots Die, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, stapler, copy paper for inside

Praying for you...

My grandmother had her 2nd hip replacement last month and is still recouperating. I've made her up another card with the Thought's & Prayers set I finally got! (this is a card I sketched in my "Create"-ive Book I made recently which will be posted soon) I like coloring our stamps with the markers and this is a great set to do that with as you can see (barely) with the tree. I finished it off with some of SU's older ribbons that I still have some of.

STAMPS: Thoughts & Prayers
INKS: Close to Cocoa & Green Galore markers, Bashful Blue
PAPERS: Kraft, Bashful Blue, White
ACCESSORIES: So Saffron grosgrain, Lt. Blue gingham
