November Christmas Bough

Happy Friday and November Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge. This months theme is fun and I hope you check it out HERE and play along with us. 
I just adore the feel of this card from the colors of the papers to the mitten image. This is using Bough Wow Wow stamp set. Stamped the image onto white card stock and colored with various Copic markers. 


After I was done coloring I die cut using an ODBD die for the shape. My designer paper was my color inspiration for this card. The yellow and chocolate just make me smile. Stamped the sentiment along the side with some added sparkle.
Then wrapped some ribbon around the base and tied off a heart button with some twine, then last bit with enamel dots. Voila!

Found another sunflower stamp

Good morning all. Look what I found in my bin of stamps. It is yet another sunflower stamp that I totally forgot I had. This was from Taylored Expressions and I am sure is retired by now. Just what I needed was another fall card using sunflowers.  :-)  Unless I find another sunflower this is the last of them... or so I think. HA!  Anyways... 


The scraps of paper on the desk were my color inspiration for this card today. All those leaves are so pretty and with turquoise I thought perfect! My sunflowers are colored with various Copic markers then a simple chocolate layer behind the image panel. The strips of designer paper down the side with my sentiment layered onto a few punched shapes. Enamel dots and sparkles to finish it off. Voila! 
Hope you have a wonderful day!

Abundant thanks

Morning. This has to be my favorite fall card I have created this year. I am using Atumun's Opulence that I printed large for my card. I wanted a rather country like feel to this thank you since the person it is going to lives on a farm at this point. hee hee  She would laugh if she heard me say that, but will love it. Anyways... I colored the blooms in various fall colors using Copic markers.


I then die cut using Spellbinders larger oval and decorative ovals that are from ages ago in my die stash. layered some designer paper with faux stitching under the image panel. Wrapped some twine and added some button accents. Some sparkle finishes this off today. Voila!

Birthday Mum's

Good  morning. Another one of the new digi's in Marcy's October digi blitz called I Luv Mum's and oh do I ever. Look at this border of mum's she created. This is a border of mum's, also a single and another you won't want to miss, so check it out. My card is using just the border of mum's today.


This was printed and trimmed down a touch to fit a standard card front. Colored with various Copic markers. A simple birthday sentiment for the center and a few scattered jewels. Voila! 
A few more fall cards coming your way. Have a great day.

Fall birthdays with Plenty of Leaves

Good morning. Crazy she has a post right, well it hasn't been that long since my last post. Sure seems like it. I am soaking up the boys senior year activities and football season right now. I did get a chance this weekend to color a bit and it was so relaxing. That means yes, I do have few cards to share with you.  :-)  
This first one using one of the newest digi's called Plenty of Leaves. Oh I just love this, especially since you can create a whole canvas or just part depending on the sizing. I started off smaller for my card well and what time I had to color it. ha ha  The digi has a few single leaves and sentiments so go check it out.


After I colored everything with various Copic markers I then die cut with a decorative die. A few layers of matching card stock with some lace trim and ribbon wrapped around the center. Stamped a birthday sentiment in the middle with a few enamel dots accents. Finished it off with some sudoko gel pen which the camera never picks up. But it does sparkle at an angle and Voila!

October is cozy

It is October 1st  (or shortly it will be) and that means the Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge is posted up and I hope you can play along this month. My creations is using Cozy Cupfuls. 



I stamped this sweet cup with the tree on white card stock and colored with various Copic markers. I then die cut with a stitched die. The base is a few layers of card stock and designer paper. Before I added it to the base layer I did emboss with the matching stitched layers. Added my sentiment and an enamel dot. Topped it off with some sparkle and voila! 

Have a wonderful day!
