Boxed Set

Hi There

Earlier this year I had been working on a set of cards to send to non-cardmaking friends and family.  I have a bag filled with stamps, markers and watercolor paper that I take to my friend Peggy's and we work on the AI watercolor images.  She had put hers together in a fabulous calendar for friends.

I only made six card designs, but made 6 of each of the designs for 6 card sets.  I've given out 5 of the 6 and they were well received. As usual these are not original designs as far as the images go - I followed along with several Watercolor Wednesday videos.  But how I matted them and turned them into cards is my design.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi There -

If you have been visiting for any length of time you know I love flowers and flower cards. Just because it is fall I have no intention of stopping with the flowers.  I'll simply color them in reds, oranges, and yellows to give a fall feel.

Both cards started out as stamped images on copic friendly paper.  I then colored the images and fussy cut them out.  For the colored card base I found a marker that was remarkably close in color and colored in all the left over white spaces and edges.

I'll be entering this colorful fall card in the Time Out Challenge - Colorful.


Although both cards are colored in similar colors, the first one has more of a fall feel to me due to the golden yellow cardbase.  The white still feels summery to me.  What do you think?

The stamps came from Stampin Up, there is one floral image with two shadow sentiments (Hello and Thanks) as well as 2 sentiments and some doodles that would also fit the center plaque area.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thank You

Hi There -

One last card for the night.  This card is for two challenges.  Uniko Studio Challenge #49 - Wonderful World with optional twist ThanksThe second challenge is CAS on Friday #143 Thank you Card

Using Uniko's Nature Treasures 2 I created a clean and simple fall thank you card.  The sentiment comes from SSS. I have a white stamped panel die cut with a stitched edge mounted onto a matching white card base. The white on white layering adds a bit of  texture to the card while preserving the uncluttered feel of a CAS card.

Thanks for stopping by.


Hi There-

I have a card for several challenges tonight.

I used an embossing folder to emboss the card base.  Next I cut a diamond frame using PPP dies. I stamped the HA sentiment on a piece of white card with burnt orange SSS ink. I used a matching alcohol ink to color in that frame and some twine.  Next I used burnt orange,  HA soft apricot and SSS orange peel inks for the small maple leaves bunched at the bottom of the diamond frame.
