Angry Birthday!

Here is a fun punch art card I made for my brother for his birthday. He loves Angry Birds so I used a bunch of punches and made some for him!  Then I cut out a couple of shapes using the Framelits Labels dies to use as a frame for them. The background is the Fancy Fan embossing folder. These were easy to make but the little pieces are hard to glue together. I recommend using a liquid glue for something like this. 

stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
ink: Black
paper:  Basic Black, Whisper white, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin pie, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze
Big Shot: Framelits Labels Dies, Fancy Fancy Fan embossing Folder

Owlie Box!

Happy Halloween! Here is the first of one of the projects for my upcoming Halloween Class - Isn't he adorable? I just love owls, especially with the big eyes, so I knew I had to try to make an owl for my class. His body is the Fancy Favor Die box and the "feathers" are cut out from the Howlstooth and Scarringbone Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Mini catalog. To cut them I used the Adorning Accents Edgelit die. Then all you need is various circle and oval punches! He's a perfect gift once you add in some shredded paper and candy!

ink: None!
paper:  More Mustard, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Howlstooth and Scarringbone Designer Series Paper

Three Tags Card

Does it feel like fall yet? Not quite here but I know it's not too far off. Today I'm sharing another Fall card I made. This is a simple card made using the Day of Gratitude stamp set and the tag punch. I haven't used this punch in awhile so I pulled it out for this card. I stamped the leaves in 3 different fall colors and punched out. I added some scallop polka dot ribbon with a staple on the top of each one. For the background,  I embossed a some early espresso paper with the woodgrain embossing folder to give it some texture.  Then a bit of Scallop trim border punch to add some color along the bottom!

Perfectly Preserved Pear!

Here is a pretty little pear card we made at my Fall stamp-a-stack last week.  I used the stamp set Perfectly Preserved and the coordinating framelits dies (cannery) to create the jar and pear inside. For the lid, I simply used the die to cut out a piece of paper from the Orchard Harvest Designer Series paper pack.   I added a punched out 2.5" circle behind them to help them pop off the card. The background of the card was created using the Lacy Brocade Embossing folder.

Simple Silhouette

Last, but not least, the final card from the Fall Stamp-a-Stack. I know I've seen this idea a few places online and wanted to try it. It's such a pretty, simple card! I used cherry cobbler and always artichoke to make it feel like Fall but you could easily refresh this card in light colors for spring.   I stamped the flower and then used the paper piercing circle stencil  and tool to create the simple circle around it. It's amazing how that little detail adds so much to this card!  I also rounded the card edges and added on a "fork" bow with the seam binding ribbon.

stamps: Summer Silhouette, Fabulous Phrases
ink: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, So saffron, early espresso
paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
other: paper piercing template and tool, crumb cake seam binding ribbon

Fall Birthday Card

Another card from my Fall stamp-a-stack last week. For this card I used the set Day of Gratitude from the big catalog. This is one of my favorite fall stamp sets. I love the bold leaf images and the beautiful Medallion! 

On this card I did something I rarely do.. I used the color Bravo Burgundy!  For some reason I've always disliked this color and never use it on projects.. but when I started the the more mustard  and olive and was looking for a dark color to coordinate, I found myself reaching for it and actually love how this turned out. I even ordered myself another pack of this color paper…. gasp!

stamps: Day of Gratitude, Teeny Tiny Wishes
ink: More Mustard, Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy
paper:  More Mustard, Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White

Fall Jar of Posies

Have I mentioned that  I really LOVE this perfectly preserved stamp set? This jar is just so versatile! For this card I used the flower and stem that come in the set to create this fun card. I stamped the flower 3 times in different colors and then cut them out with the coordinating cannery framelit die. Then I stamped the jar and stems on Crumb Cake card stock and added on the flowers. It looks so cute! Then I added the "thanks" from the same set on top of the jar. 

I love how the color combo works on this card. I sometimes forget to try stamping on colors besides white and when I do try it I usually love how it turns out. It really makes the flowers pop and I used the white as a fun accent!

ink:  Old Olive, pumpkin pie, So Saffron, Rich Razzleberry

Pretty Fall Card

Here is a beautiful fall card- perfect for a birthday or just to send for fun! We made this card at my stamp-a-stack on Thursday. Can you guess how the square in the background was created? It's super easy - just find a stamp block the size you want and ink it up like you would a stamp!! Then press onto your paper and you get a fun background shape. They don't ink up perfectly or evenly so it add a nice distressed look.  For this card I used crumb cake ink pad to make my background and stamp block size D.  The stamp set is one of my favorites, French Foilage - I don't think it's possible to make an ugly card with this set - it's so easy to use and they always turn out so pretty! The woodgrain texture was created with the new woodgrain embossing folder in the big shot...  Don't forget to add a sentiment and some bakers twine and then you have a easy and beautiful fall card. 

stamps: French Foilage, Friendly Phrases (sentiment)
ink: Early Espresso, crumb cake, cajun craze
paper:  Early Espresso, crumb cake, cajun craze, Very Vanilla
Big Shot: Woodgrain embossing folder
other: Stamp block to stamp background, early espresso bakers twine.

Yet another Gingerbread Man!

One last Christmas card and Then I promise the next few posts will be Fall ! This one uses the Scentsational Season Gingerbread man and coordinating Framelit die. I just love how cute he is and I love to emboss him with the scented embossing powder. ... it really does smell good. My husband was in the other room when I was embossing with the powder and said "what smells so good?" He maybe thought I was baking.... yeah right?

Watercolor Winter Variation

This card is a variation on the one that we made at my last stamp-a-stack! It's a similar design but I used Cherry Cobbler as the base color instead of always artichoke. To see the other card click here

The hardest part about making this card is paper piercing around the edge using the template... and that's not really that hard... just takes some time.  But you could leave that part off and it would still make a quick and easy christmas card - great if you need to make a whole bunch!

stamps: Watercolor Winter, teeny tiny wishes
ink: Always artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
paper:  Whisper white, Always artichoke, Cherry Cobbler,Crumb Cake
Big Shot: Apothecary Accents Framelits dies
other: Word window punch, Cherry Cobbler bakers Twine, paper piercing template
