Thinking of You

Good morning! Today I’m sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. We have a fun fall color challenge for you to play along with

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #125 Colors

And here is my card I created

Thinking of You

I started with a Kraft card base. Next I used another layer of kraft that I die cut with the Lawn Fawn stitched wood grain background die and then sponged all over with Early Espresso Ink and then die cut a circle out of the middle. For the layer behind this I used a piece of white cardstock and masked the moon off with a 1 inch circle and then sponged with Yo Yo Yellow and Really Rust inks. I then stamped the birds using a Stampscapes stamp in Stazon black ink. For the grass border I die cut using the Memory Box Green Pasture die in white cardstock and sponged with Old Olive Ink and then added at the bottom. I attached this piece behind the wood grain and then layered these onto my card base. To finish I stamped the sentiment on a piece of kraft and flagged one end with a punch and then sponged the edges with Early Espresso and added to my card using dimensionals.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time

Winter Is Calling!

Good morning!  Fall is in the air and I am loving it! Fall is definitely my favorite season. What is your favorite season?

Today I am sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week itโ€™s a Card Makers Choice Challenge.  How fun is that!!

I was recently gifted some handmade paper by my friend Pattie Oisten and wanted to create my card using it. Here is what I created 

I started with a Lucky Limeade Card base and then a layer of Early Espresso. For the main layer I used a piece of kraft cardstock. I stamped the log cabin, from Rubberneckers, using early espresso Ink. I added the smoke from the chimney using my white primsa colored pencil and then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.  Next I die cut the landscape with trees using the memory box die Golf Club Landscape and snipped off the golf club image, leaving just the trees. I then inked the whole piece with versa mark and embossed with ultra thick embossing powder. After that cooled I used my white colored pencil and added touches of snow and then added this to my card right below the log cabin. Next I took the handmade paper and my stitched hill dies, purchased from eBay, and cut 3 layers of hills and added them to my card. If you look closely the Paper has added elements of glitter and tinsel which makes it really resemble snowy hills. I then cut more of the landscape with trees and snipped them apart and tucked them in behind the hills. To finish I stamped the sentiment from the SU set Winter Is Calling on early espresso cardstock and heat embossed in white and added to the bottom using dimensionals.
