Thank You fall leaves

I started with a picture I took of leaves that had fallen on our sidewalk. The yellows and browns of the leaves just looked so pretty against the grain o the sidewalk.  I used that picture as the background of the card. On the color wheel, purple is opposite brown, so I chose a purple May Arts silk ribbon, twine, and a large brown brad (unknown) and a couple of small purple brads  to create a dimensional bow and attach the ribbon..  Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) was smudged around the edge of the photo.  The Thank You stamp is from Just Rite. Mounted on a cream colored cardstock and attached to a light brown card base, the card is finished.  I lined te inside with a cream colored paper.  Thank you very much!

Halloween Little Witch Vintage

October is such a fun time! Fall is in the air and Halloween is right around the corner.  I had fun creating this card using Graphic 45 Halloween Haunting paper.  I used a Impression Obsession background stamp on black cardstock and embossed the image with black. A bit of ribbon and three black brads completed the card front.  I lined the inside of the card with orange and stamped a Halloween verse from Northwoods rubber stamp company.  Boo!

Thank You Gary

Inside card with fence photo and personal message



First of all let me thank Polly's Paper Studio from whom I cased this card.  I was so totally impressed with it as I scrolling Pinterest for thank you card ideas.  I wanted a special one to give our son.  While out of town, he surprised us by building a new fence for us.  He gave up a couple of golf days to get it done before we returned home! He screwed each picket to the header! a fence to last my lifetime.  I printed a 8 1/2 x 11" picture of the fence to create the inside of the card.  A personal thank you message was printed on top of the photo. Then the page was mounted to the inside of the card

May Arts Ribbon
Tag (unknown)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink

E Baby Shower Card

Oh I needed a card for a baby shower!  From a folded piece of cardstock, I cut out the letter "E" to recognize the first letter in the baby to be's name.  On the front of the card, I punched out letters for baby's whole name and glued them over the previously embossed background.  Seem binding edged the fold and buttons embellished it.  Open the card to the inside an several stamps were used to welcome the arrival of the baby.  I was amazed at how many markers I used to get the very basic color design.  A personal message was written on the back of the front of the card.  I might have to play with using letters to form the card base for other card needs. 

 Supplies Used
Stamps: Alias Smith and Rowe (handprints)
               Hampton Art Stamps (tiny little things message)
               Inkadinkado (animals and sweet baby message
Ink: Distress (faded Jeans)
        VersaMark (watermark)
Embossing Powder: Zing (powder)
Copic Markers: E17, E31, E33,Y13, Y28, B06, B52,N6, BV29, RV11
