Autumn Blessings

Hi All!

Since I don't make a lot of Halloween or Thanksgiving cards anymore and I still want to keep in touch with friends I love the idea of fall cards. They can be mailed from September to November here in the northern hemisphere and its not so much pressure to meet a calendar deadline.

My friend Greta sent me these coverplate cutouts and I added some brown glittery embossing powder to make a nice frame.  The under panel was sponged with some ranger inks.  I added a brown ink over all the colors to give it a more autumnal feel--left alone the colors were too bright.

Thanks for stopping by!

Purple and Gold


Still in California and using up a few more bits that I have been saving. These come from Greta  and Betty (Thank You so much).

I heat embossed the diagonal striped panel in Gold, then colored the iris's with the watercolor brush tip pens. I fussy cut them out (ya I so dislike fussy cutting...but it was worth it.) and popped a couple in each embossed panel.  Added a Hero Arts sentiment and mounted it on a layer of purple which was also sponged a bit along the edges for added depth and texture. I made two and just changed up the sentiment strip.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi there~

I'm still playing on the west coast, today I am playing along with A Blog Named Hero, they are using Lawn Fawn Critters for this challenge.  Luckily I brought both HA and LF stamps with me.

My main panel has the raccoon from LF's Holiday Party Animal and the sentiment comes from the Hero arts Stamp and cut Hello set.

Thanks much for stopping by.
