World Treasures Peacock

 This little peacock is strutting his stuff in Rich Razzleberry! I made this card for a swap earlier this summer and just never posted it. I also made a stepped up version of this card with the peacock entirely embossed with Iridescent Ice but I forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it away. The background was embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder.The paper is from International Bazaar Designer Series Paper Pack and the peacock is from Stampin' Up!™ World Treasures stamp set. 

    Anyone starting on their Christmas cards yet? I just received my supplies so I should be starting soon with at least the cutting. I did make a set of about 40 cards for my 5th & 6th Grade Sunday School class to send out to the Shut-Ins (people in our church who cannot get out because of health or mobility issues). I also need to make my parents' Christmas cards. Guess I'd better put in a movie and get the old Trimmer moving!

A Little Fall Triple Time Stamping

 I like new techniques! This one looks complicated but is soooo easy! Basically you take 3 pieces of neutral card stock (2" x 3 1/4") (3" x 4 1/4") (4" x 5 1/4") , layer them using a temporary adhesive and stamp on all 3 layers. Then take them apart making sure to keep the images lined up and layer each one on a darker color mat     (2 1/4" x 3 1/2") (3 1/4" x 4 1/2") (5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card front) For a youtube video by Dawn Olchefske click HERE.  I used the Stampin' Up!™ stamp set called Day of Gratitude. The ink colors are Cajun Craze, Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake and Elegant Eggplant.

  So I finally managed to make about 170 cards to sell at the Apple Festival. This is an annual event to raise money for the Missouri Baptist Children's Home in Peculiar, Missouri.  The good news is they all sold, the bad news is someone sold my display box. Oh well, guess next year I will have to write "DO NOT SELL BOX!"

Perfectly Preserved Tangerine Tango

 Love, love, love this new stamp set! I also love the Framelits™ that match! Framelits are thin dies that are used to frame and cut out stamped images when run through a Big Shot™.  Although I like to fussy cut, these dies are quicker, easier and less expensive than punches.  I also did some paper piercing using the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack. The colors used were Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Real Red; I stamped th,e jar with Basic Gray. The ribbon is 1/4 Stitched Grosgrain by Stampin' Up!™; it is very soft and pliable and easily tied into a bow.
