IO Thursday Designer Challente-Autumn Colours



Good Morning!!!!!

We have a new Challenge up at IO Stamps today!!!!

We'd love to see your Fall colour creations!!!!!

I made this sweet wreath with the  Patchwork Leaves die.
All I did is distress the edges with Vintage Photo Ink

Once the wreath was created, I cut the sentiment with the  Give Thanks die twice. Once in Mustard and once in brown to give it a shadow effect.
I layered it all over a background I had created with my Gel Press plate and the  Distressed Flower
stamp. 

Lastly, I added some gold drops here and there with my Daler Rowny Gold Acrylic Ink

Make sure you upload your creations on the IO Blog and visit to get the links to the other  designers who are playing in the challenge today!

Peace




Good Morning!!! 

What a beautiful Clear and cool day here in Kingston. I actually had to don my toque when I took Sydney for a little walk. 

I wanted to share this card I made with a few Stencils from a Colourful Life

I used a combination of Stencils as listed below and a few different techniques
I think this warrants a Video and will get onto that soon!!!

I used the following dies.



I must be in the mood for Pink Coloured Christmas Cards this year!!!!

I used a combination of Pan Pastels and Distress ink on this card!!!!

Gotta Run 'Cause I have tons to do today, but I will try to get onto doing a video this week

Good Morning!!!

I can't believe it's just over a month until Christmas

Have you started your Christmas Prep yet?

I wanted to share a couple of Christmas Cards I made with Impression Obsession dies and Santa Baby Paper for a class I taught at Scrap of Paradise this week.   

For this first card, I used the Peace Doves Die    and the Merry Christmas Die     
The Star is  from the SU Stars Set




This was a fun and Pretty Tag to make

I used the following supplies on this tag

I also added a little dimension to the patterned paper with the  Vintage Postcard Stamp set

We made a few more, but I'll save those for another day!!!

I purchase my Santa Baby Paper HERE

Good Morning!!!
What are you thankful for?

I'm thankful for clean water, for without that, all living creatures could not exist.
I'm thankful for good friends, family and a good job
I"m thankful I live in a country where I can express myself as I see fit and am not repressed because I am a woman. 

This week's challenge is to create a card of gratitude.

My card features the Leaf Ledger Cover a Card Stamp

A very quick and easy card, but the message so meaningful~

Impression Obsession Thursday Designer Challenge -Happy Haunting


Good Morning! Welcome to IO Stamps Thursday Designer Challenge
\
My Card is not too spooky, but I wanted to use my Misti to stamp various gradations of colour onto the Pumpkin with Water Based Markers

To begin, I lightly stamped my image with Tan Ink the image I used is 

Once I stamped it, I just kept adding various colours to the image in small amounts and stamping over and over with the Misti until I got the desired effect.

Finally, I added in the sentiment using the Christmas Stitched Word Die

Be sure to visit the IO Blog to enter your project and to see which of the talented DT are participating today!!!

Christmas Whimsy with Technique Junkies Stamps!


Christmas is coming sooner than we know and it sure felt like it when I left work today. BRRRRRR!!!!!

I have a couple of fun cards I created with the Christmas Whimsy Background Stamp  and the  Snowman Whimsy  Stamp



I coloured in the background and the snowman with Copic Markers

I used my circle die cuts to make a window in the background, adding an acetate window and adhering the snowman to it. I used some foam tape in behind to crate a shaker box.

Lastly, I added the Merry Christmas  2 Sentiment



I I didn't want my cut out to go to waste, so I created a clean and simple card using it.
The sentiment is created with the Joy Stencil

Both fun cards to make!!!!

Happy Stamping

and here's a code for a little discount!!!
