Day of Gratitude's Medallion stamp

This medallion stamp is from the Day of Gratitude stamp set. I used Stampin' Write™ markers to ink up the stamp, stamped it on Naturals Ivory card stock and cut it out. The embossed panel is Naturals Ivory also that was embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder. Naturals Ivory is a lovely card stockr! It has a soft creamy look, more of an off white than an ivory.
The leaves are from the same stamp set. Isn't that brad gorgeous?? It is one of the brads in the package of Antique Brads from Stampin' Up! They are all gorgeous! Just the right touch!

Greeting Card Kids Halloween Card

The images in this little stamp set called Greeting Card Kids are just toooo cute! Believe it or not I just purchased my first set of Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils. They are fabulous pencils. The colors are very vibrant and the pencils are strong and do not break easily. I stamped the image on Naturals White with Jet Black Stazon™ ink, colored the image and used blender pens. Then I covered the image with Crystal Effects™. I love using Crystal Effects but you must have patience and let it FULLY dry. I let mine dry overnight so I know it is dry and don't end up with a fingerprint on the image from checking. The paper is from the retired Cast-A-Spell Designer Series Paper. The pink ribbon is retired Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain.

Another Stampin' Up! Day of Gratitude

Fall is definitely in the air and after the hot dry summer I am so ready!!! I was inspired by Mary Brown's card Here. These little leaves are so fun to play with! I used my new Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This folder makes a really deep impression. The ribbon is retired More Mustard. The leaves were stamped with Early Expresso, Old Olive, More Mustard, Rich Razzleberry and Riding Hood Red. The card base, embossed panel and small border punched panel are Crumb Cake sponged with Early Expresso.

Stampin' Up! Day of Gratitude

I finally made some fall cards. I just could not seem to get into a fall mood while it was 90 degrees outside. So now the weather is cooler and fall is in the air!!!
I am a matchy-matchy girl! I can't help myself. I just love it when everything co-ordinates! See how the stamped leaves match the paper??? The stamp set is called Day of Gratitude and is found in the Holiday Mini. The matching paper is called Autumn Spice and is a slightly textured heavy weight paper. Yummy fall colors.

The scallop was punched with the larger scallop circle punch out of Naturals Ivory paper.
I cheated a little with the ribbon. It is actually Dusty Durango and the card base is Cajun Craze but I think they are fairly close.
See the mat behind the sentiment? Know how I made it???? I punched a piece of Cajun Craze with the large scallop circle punch then punched it again to make an oval.

Morning Cup

This was the first set on my wish list for the new catalog. It is called Morning Cup. Lots of great images and funny sayings are in this set. My favorite is "caffeine isn't a drug its a vitamin!'

I used the new Distressing Essentials kit to make the panel on the left. I started with a piece of Naturals White and wadded it up in a ball. Then I swiped some charcoal and navy ink across it and sponged a little charcoal around the edges. The image was colored with a blender pen and ink pads. The base is Not Quite Navy with little teabags stamped all over it. The red is Riding Hood Red.
