Autumn Blessings

Good Afternoon!  

A Chilly Fall day here, but I welcome it! 

Today's card will be entered into the following Challenges:

Stamp TV, Fall Is In The Air
Stamping Sensations, I Spy The Letter 'B' (Blessings Or Blossoms)
Scrapy Land, Anything Goes #98
Simon Says Work It Wednesday, Favorite Technique

I started with a wood grain background by scoring my card stock every 1/4 inch.  I then swiped inks all over it to get just the right look.  The inks I used were; Wild Honey, Antique Linen and White. My stamps are by Gina K Designs; Beyond Baskets, Fanciful Fall and Fill It With Flowers.  Images colored with Copic Markers.  I also heat embossed the galvanized bucket using Black Embossing Powder.

I enjoy coloring with Copic Markers I also enjoy fussy cutting images out, so these were my favorite techniques for this card.  The corner die is by Cheery Lynn, Lace Corner Deco H.  Plaid Designer Paper, Ribbon, Button and Twine for accents.  Raven Black ink.

I popped up one blossom for a bit of dimension.  Another favorite technique. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Double D, If The Shoe Fits

Good Morning!

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 

And here's the wonderful Inspiration Tile:  

And here's what I created:

I was totally inspired by the Cowgirl Boots!  I used the Stampendous Cowgirl Boots stamp, stamped in Raven Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  I also added Sakura Glitter/Glaze pen in Copper for the boot rivets and clasp.  I added a little wisp of lace to the skirt image, it's kind of sexy.  Inside I decorated with a Western Star Border by MFT.  I hand cut a frame and backed the focal panel with Fun Foam.

Using an MFT Blueprints #12, I die cut my sentiment banner added 2 stars cut using the Tutti Designs, Stitched Nesting Stars, one on each side, topped with brads.  My sentiment is by Die Versions, Miss You.  I die cut this 3 times and layered for extra dimension. 

Depth and dimension, how I like my cards!

This card will be entered into the following Challenges:

Stamping Sensations, I Spy The Letter B (boots)
Scrapy Land, Anything Goes
Penny Black, Make It Feminine

Sunflower Birthday Wishes

***  This is still happening, my email notifications are not being received nor are most of yours to me.....I have no idea how to fix this issue.  Thankfully I have made a Blog List right here on my Blog so I can easily follow all of your Posts ***

Check this link out, Blogger  they say it has been fixed,  au contraire!

On with the show!

Back again on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog 
to share a Birthday card with you today! 

A little creation with Black and White with a POP of Yellow!

I love the Fall and I love Sunflowers, the perfect time of year to pull out these beautiful dies!  I started with the Penny Black, Border Edges.  Here I have cut it from White card stock.  Then using an old toothbrush and some craft paints in Black and Yellow I covered it with splatters, such an easy technique.  Taking Black Striped Designer Paper, I adhered it to the die cut piece, placing it all on my White card base.

I die cut this gorgeous Cheery Lynn, Sunflower from 2 different shades of Yellow card stock.  I layered them together using a Foam Dot for dimension.  I added a Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish die cut in Black, beneath it.

My sentiment is by Gina K Designs, Birthday Blessings.  This was stamped in Raven Black ink.  Inside leaf stamped in Crushed Curry ink.  Nuvo Drops in Ebony as accents.

The centers of the die cut Sunflowers are the only portioned glued down, this way my petals can be lifted and moved to show a bit more dimension.

This card will be entered into the Challenge at;
