I can't believe I'm posting pics of some of my cards for my October classes. My Stamp-a-Stack classes are not until October 20 and 21!! Since I work for the U.S. Postal Service I had a long 3-day weekend -- Monday was Columbus Day. I decided to take advantage ot this past weekend and try to work ahead.
It helped that I had new "toys" to play with -- the Autumn Accent Bigz die, new stamp sets and new Designer Series Paper. As I was working, I realized I definitely have a "leaf" theme to these 3 cards. I hope you enjoy looking at what I created this weekend.
The first card I cased from someone on SplitcoastStampers, however, every time I went to her blog my anti-virus software gave me a warning. Once again, I loved it so I didn't change much I just used stuff I had so a few things had to be changed. What do you think?
This next card also cased here. Yes, I do create some things by myself, in fact, check out the next card because most of that card was a "MamaDog" original. Anyway, this card uses a color combination that I never would have put together -- Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit and Cherry Cobbler. Wild, hah? Do you like the veins on the leaves? Can you guess what I used? Give up? I used the Spider Web embossing folder!! Crazy! That was a trick I learned from the Stamp Lady Katie. Check out her blog.
Supplies used: Gentle Falling & Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets; Crumb Cake & Whisper White card stock; Cherry Cobbler, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green ink; Square Lattice & Spider Web Embossing Folders; Summer Starfruit ribbon; Autumn Accents Bigz die and Bitty Banner framelits.
Okay, this is my MamaDog original but I was inspired by this card . I LOVED the colors used so I just made it my own. I used the emboss resist technique on the Tweet Leaves stamp. I stamped in VersaMark on Very Vanilla, used clear embossing powder and then sponged Lucky Limeade, More Mustard and Island Indigo ink over the image. I think is a WOW!! Have you noticed that the hottest think in paper crafting is the banner. It's everywhere!!
Supplies used: Tweet Leaves & Friendly Phrases stamp sets; Island Indigo, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla and More Mustard card stock; Orchard Harvest DSP; More Mustard, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo and Early Espresso ink; More Mustard (retired) brads; Autumn Accent Bigz die, Early Espresso ribbon.
Thanks for stopping in to see what I did this past weekend. It was a wonderfully cool fall weekend and I spent it stamping -- LIVE IS GOOD!!
