Autumn Greetings

Hello and welcome! I wanted to share a card I made today using the new Brutus Monroe stamp set that was released for 2019 Simon Says Stamp Stamptember. If you haven’t seen it check it out here. Fall is by far my favorite season.

Here is the shaker card I created

I used SU Tempting Turquiose for my card base and then added layers of paper from Hobby Lobby. On the top layer I added a piece of cheesecloth that I coffee dyed with a bell I rusted up in the center of the bow. To make the globe a shaker I stamped it and then cut all but about 1/4 inch out of the center and then attached it to acetate. The fall scene was stamped on Bristol Smooth paper and colored with my Zig markers.

Hope you enjoyed my card and thank you for stopping by!

Until next time

Happy crafting!

SIP Challenge #47 – One Element Wonder

Good morning! First I would like to say that I hope all you mothers out here in the blogging world had a wonderful Mothers Day. It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.

This is our inspiration

SIP Challenge #47 One Wonder Element

For this challenge I wanted to use a new set I just purchased from SU called Picture Perfect. Here’s what I created

Picture Perfect

I started with a Tenpting Turquoise card base and then added a layer of Basic Black.  Next I took a piece of watercolor paper and using a water brush flicked Tempting Turquoise and Pool Party randomly on it and then added some black specks using a black Wink of Stella pen.  Next on a piece of scrap white paper I stamped the hummingbird, first in Pool Party then Tempting Turquoise and the final layer in Stazon black.  I fussy cut this image and added it to my card using dimensionals.  To finish I stamped the sentiments from the same set in Stazon black, Tempting Turquoise and Pool Party and cut the words out individually and backed them on black cardstock and added to my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my card this week and have been inspired to play along with us for this challenge.

Until next time

Happy crafting 🙂
