Happy Sunday!  Only two days of school this coming week. I am looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday.  I am popping in with a card to share for this week's Papertrey Ink Create Along With Us Challenge.


I chose to use Laurie Schmidlin's card here for my inspiration.  


First of all, I just love the colors and how Laurie did the stenciling and stamping background.  



I chose to make a Christmas card so I used an assortment of Christmas inspired images.


As always thanks so much for stopping by!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!





The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!





For the challenge, I chose to go with some fall colors and images that have acorns in the pattern.    To follow along with this week's CASE this Sketch ChallengeI layered vellum over the background.

Happy Sunday!  I am popping in with a card to share.  I am playing along with Fusion Card Challenge.


I decided to use the sketch and the inspiration piece for my card.  I started with Verve's Autumn Leaves stamp set.  I used the swirly image in this set to create a subtle background like the one in the inspiration photo. I stamped the image using versamark onto grout gray card stock.  


Next, I die cut a white stitched frame using Falling Leaves die set.   For my focal image, I used Autumn Blessings stamp set and Autumn Thanks die set.  I die cut and copic colored the image. I die cut a few more wreaths and layerd three together for some added dimension.    




I also die cut stamped, and copic colored a few of the extra sprigs included in the set to add an extra touch to the wreath at the bottom.  


For the sentiment, I cut a strip of black card stock to work with the sketch.  I stamped the sentiment from Autumn Blessings set in versamark and white embossed.  To finish my card I added a few amber and brown gems from my stash as well as some wink of stella on the wreath leaves.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

I am popping in with a card to share.  I am participating in Papertrey Ink's "We Love Dawn!  Blog Hop!  Naturally, I had to use one of her stamp designs. 

I started with some stampers sellect white card stock.  I die cut and stamped the floral images from Floral Sketch stamp set.



I arrangement my floral images and leaves.  I used some foam tape to add dimension as well as curl the edges of the flower petals and leaves to add even more dimension.  



I stamped the sentiment from the same set using Versafine Onyx black ink.  I finised the card with a few stamp tiny circle dots that come from the Christmas Faith set.

As always thanks so much for hopping by!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!





The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!




For the challenge, I chose to go with some cider colors.  I love the warm tones with pops of burgandy berry colors.  I started with white linen paper.  To follow along with this week's CASE this Sketch ChallengeI sponged on some tumbled glass oxide ink to create the half circle background.  I spritzed on some water and blotted dry to create some color variation and texture.   I also added some white water copic white water spatters for added effect and dimension.  



Next, I stamped and die cut the beautiful berries branches autumn branch set using stamper select white in shades of cocoa bean, prairie grass, saffron spice, and scarlet jewel.  I added a little bit of olive twist to some of the leaves. I stamped the image from the same set going for a two-toned effect on the "thankful" word using saffron spice and scarlet jewel.  The rest of the sentiment I used cocoa bean. I finished my card with a few clear sequins.
