Peaceful Boughs Greetings

Stampin' Up Peaceful Boughs

Where does the time go?  Yesterday, I was looking at the calendar, we are half way through October already.  Time to get a move on, Christmas will be here before we know it, I for one, don’t like to leave things to the last minute.  Needless to say, that includes my Christmas Greeting Cards.

My card I am sharing with you today is made from the Peaceful Boughs Bundle in the Holiday Catalog.  The base is Very Vanilla thick cardstock.  I cut a piece of the beautiful Wrapped in Plaid DSP to fit the card front, then cut out the bough and pine cones.  Stamping the greeting in the new Delicata Golden Glitz ink, which is amazing, onto a piece of very vanilla, I then adhere it to the front.  Added the die cut pieces and a bit of Braided linen trim to top it off and it was all done.  

I would love it if you hit the subscribe button to the right.

Dancing Witch

Witch Card

 

Thinking outside of the box, I tweaked the image of the girl to make her into a witch.  This is easy enough to do by omitting the top of the hat and the bottom of her dress.   After stamping her onto the cardstock it was just a matter of lightly drawing in the witch hat and the sleeves and bottom of the dress.  Once I masked off the moon and Basic Gray was sponged over the rest of the Whisper White cardstock it was time to add the other stamped images from Wonderfully Wicked.  When it came time to color her outfit in I used a blender pen and my Basic Black maker.  Time for me to invest in Basic Black Blends

Tip, if you are omitting from an image, it’s easier to use a marker rather than a stamp pad.  Just remember to huff on the stamp before stamp.

Colorful Seasons

 

 

Handmade card

Seasonal Layers is one of my favorite all time die sets.  Leaves, the Adirondack chair, snowflakes, branch what’s not to love.  I had an old scrap of watercolor paper that I had made a background with, I had used distress oxide ink for it.  After cutting the piece into 3 panels I attached them to a piece of copper foll.  Our copper trim is so pretty, I just had to use it to tie around it.  Next I cut out the leaves from real red cardstock, leaving a few bits in to mimic the way older leaves can look.  I picked the sentiment Celebrate from the Beautiful you set, stamping it in early espresso.

Hope you are enjoying the colors this fall.

Get Inky with Me,
