These are just a few cards I have done recently, the first one is a shaker box card, I used a small fiskars leaf punch and some choc glitter to fill the shaker box. I used the Autumn Splendor stamp set, Autumn terracotta cs 1270, Chocolate cs X5643, choc ink Z2111 and choc ribbon. 3-D foam Z1151 to make the shaker box with.

This one I used my Cuttlebug on Autumn Terracotta cs, I used Brown Staz on ink Z1142 for stamping the leaves and sentiment, I used reinkers, rubbing alcohol, and glossy paper to make the background paper. Choc waxy flax.

These next 3 cards were using the bases from the Everyday card kit and Bella papers X7114B , I made them for Heather to give to her bridesmaids and her Maid of Honor. I used the oval ribbon slide from the mini-medley collection Z1037. for the Maid of Honor card I wanted her oval slide to be pansy purple but I didn't have one so I used Versamark pad Z891 and Purple pansy embossing powder Z664 to get the color I needed. I also didn't have any pansy paurple ribbon so I used CS and a white gel pen to create a ribbon. Thank you is from D1247 From me to You, border is from D1327 Just Because stamp. I took one of the bases from the Everyday card kit and made a template out of it so I would have this to use later.

This card is using the same base but a different paper pack. I used the Celebration and Notice the Details D1378 stamp sets and papers are Stardust. I made this birthday card for a gentleman who turned 100.

This last card is made using my Cricut, paper flowers and chocolate brads Z1218. Choc cs X5643,
Bush cs X5640, choc ink Z2111, I sanded the top layer of blush.

I hope you enjoy the new cards and please feel free to leave a comment.

Busy Weekend

This was a busy weekend for me, I went to Amelia on Saturday and met up with Dawn and we hit a couple of stores and had lunch it was a really nice day for me. I found some new Flower soft in Rustic Red and Christmas Green and decided to use them with the new D1374 Ms Holiday stamp set from the new Fall Idea book. the tree is done with flower soft and I used liquid applique on the decorations o the tree, I also used Z308 liquid applique on the hat, I stamped her again in Z2116 cranberry and than paper pieced her dress. I used the X7085B Everlasting paper pk. The second Ms. Holiday card I did, I used the rustic red flower soft on her dress just to see how it would turn out, I needed to have used more flower soft, but shes not to bad.

Been tryin to make a few more manly cards so I made this fron X7110B Back country and the stamp set is D1213 Hunting, I used coloring pencils and gamsol to color him in.

On Sunday I went to see EJ at her house and to play, well she decided we were going to play with Ranger alcohol inks and aluminum foil, plus the cuttlebug well this turned out to be alot of fun, SP and I made a couple of these, and then I bought mine home to turn them into cards becuse I ran out of time at EJ's. While I was there I stamped a few images to bring home to color and use later.
Today, I went to Michaels and picked up some of the ranger alcohol inks, but this is what I did before I left the house.
This first card I have from Ej's is the Alcohol ink and foil. I used choc ribbon, D1181 Autumn Splendor and Z1304 Autumn just blooms. EJ I hope you like how it turned out.

The next card is using X7110B Back country papers and one of the stamps from Ej, I don't know the name of it, I just thought it was cute and would go well with our CTMH back country papers

This next is using 9032 Originals page 70 Peek-A-Boo card, the stamp set is D1067 Racoon and Friends and X7110B back country papers, I used 3505 coloring pencils and gamsol to color the bears I then cut them apart.

This last one, I don't know why it is a little blurring but it looks better in person. I used the ranger alcohol inks and glossy cardstock to make the background for the fish and then I stamped him with Z888 Staz on black, the fish is from C1277 Catch of the Day, design is from page 21 of 9032 Originals Book, paper is X7110B back country.

I have had a really good time this weekend and ladies, Thanks. It was nice to get out of the house and visit.

On friday, I was looking out my back window and this is what I saw, not one but 6 buck deer, from 9pts down to a spike. I had been waiting for some good pictures to use my Back Country papers with and this worked out perfect. My husband is a hunter so he really liked these. I took a total of about 60 pictures but only scraped what I thought were the best ones. If you click on the image you will see it larger. All product is CTMH.

Now this next page is interesting because Calvin was doing some clearing here and moved an old bedliner and under it was a 4 1/2 foot black snake, now she wasn't to happy about being found, I got the camera and took a few pictures, while I had the in the edit mode I thought I would zoom in on the snakes face and what I saw in her eye surpised me because it was my reflection, she was looking right at me, I thought this was cool so I printed and scraped it. All product is CTMH.
