Inkspirational #274

The photo at Inskspirational reminded me of a technique I've been doing lately with embossing on vellum although I didn't stamp on both sides for this one.  I was having too much trouble with my anti-static powder tool and wasted three other panels before I broke out the baby powder. 


The embossed flowers are from Altenew's Garden Treasure.  I cut the Poppystamps scalloped frame in white, cut a slightly larger rectangle from kraft and sandwiched the vellum panel between them and the card base.  A little strip of the kraft was embossed with an MFT sentiment.   

Thanks so much for dropping by.  Praying for my family and friends who live in the path of Hurricane Ian.

Color Hues #49

Color Hues has another challenge and this time it's Yellow and Brown


I really layered this one up. ;)   I started with the PTI sunflower embossed in gold and colored with Distress Inks.  It's a small panel so once it was layered on white it needed more substance.  I only had a small piece of yellow so added the other white layer and put it all on the dark brown.  The sentiment from SSS was stamped in brown and cut with an MFT circle die.  A quadruple matted work of art.  lol

I'm so glad you dropped by.  I hope you'll leave a comment to let me know you were here.

Freshly Made Sketches #554

Time for another card for Freshly Made Sketches.  


Santa is a cute little die cut from Spellbinders that I borrowed from a friend.  He's on some dark gray cardstock that goes with the printed panel from Echo Park. Using that piece meant I didn't have to add a sentiment. Now I'm wishing I'd cut more than one. 

I'm glad you dropped by.  Have a great weekend!

Just Us Girls #651 - Photo Week

Nancy is hosting the Photo Week challenge at Just Us Girls this week and she has chosen an appropriate photo for this time of year.


The one thing I love about living in the Midwest is the changing seasons and none is more beautiful than Fall.


The leaves were cut from watercolor paper using my two sizes of Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves.  They were colored with a variety of Distress Inks and when dry arranged on Spicy Yogurt cardstock from Altenew.  A simple foiled sentiment from Altenew was the finishing touch. 

I'm guessing it will be a colorful gallery this week.  Let's start by seeing what the Design Team and our guest Julie Beech have made using the photo as inspiration.   Then it's up to you to make a card and link it up.  Who knows.  You may have a chance to be a future guest. 

Edited to Add: Since my card qualifies for the Double D challenge - Things that Fall - I will be sending my card to their galllery.

CAS Mix-Up September 2022

I've had my card for CAS Mix-Up done for a while but have been posting other things.  Now time is running out so I'd better get it to their gallery.


I spread gesso through a Pretty Pink Posh stencil on dark green cardstock.  When it was dry, I put the stencil back in place and colored it with Altenew inks.  To add a little sparkle, I used some silver foundry wax on the end of the leaves.  It looks like snow in the photo but it's shiny IRL.  A SSS stitched square was cut from a white A2 panel, the sentiment from Colorado Craft Company heat embossed in silver and the gesso panel added behind.  

I really enjoy all the techniques the CAS Mix-Up team introduces us too.  Thank you Design Team for making your challenge fun and educational.
