Now for the deets on my cards.
The one above uses the Sunshine and Rainbows Stamp set. to Make this card I started with a top folding white card base. I stamped the clouds and masked them off and then stamped the rainbow. I removed the masks and added some shimmer to the clouds but it is hard to capture in the photo. The sentiment is from that same set.


The card below uses the Harmony Stamp set along with the Hands stencil. 
I also started with a top folding white card base and masked off the area that I wanted to use for the stenciling. I used the Life Changing Blender Brushes to ink blend the rainbow colors, removed the mask and added the sentiment from the Harmony set. This card is so 2020.

Hey Pumpkin!


hello and thanks for stopping by! 
Today's card is brought to you by Gina K designs.  The set I used is Haunts & Harvest and was part of a kit when I purchased it but now you can buy it separately as well as the coordinating dies. 
To create this card I started with a top folding white card base. I used the Harvest Flourish stencil along with Blue Lagoon ink for the background. I stamped the pumpkins image, colored it using Copic markers, then cut it out with the coordinating die and popped it up using some foam tape. 
To finish the card I added the sentiment from the same set.

Rinea Meets Joy Clair


I am up on the Rinea blog today with this card using some of our foiled paper along with this gorgeous stamp by Joy Clair Designs who we have been collaborating with the month of October. 
I love how this has the look of hammered copper, To achieve that look I started with a piece of Copper/Gold foiled paper and placed it in an embossing folder from my stash and ran it through the die cutting machine. I have no clue who even makes the folder I used.  
I stamped the flowers from the Heartfelt Sympathy set by Joy Clair Designs, colored it using Copic markers and popped it on the front of my card. I didn't add a greeting so it could be used for several occasions.

Let Us Adore Him



It's time for a new game at AAA Cards, and it's all about the white space, with an optional twist of stars


The holiday season is approaching fast  y'all, it's only 62 days until Christmas. With that being said I really have to get busy making Christmas cards because my small group gives them to the nursing/rehab center in our community and no one else but me makes them. 
To create this CAS card, I started with a white top folding card base and a coule sets by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps along with the Misti. 
I placed my card base in the Misti and stamped the stable seen from the Serene Silhouettes: Jesus is Born set. I used the small blending brushes to add color and the greeting is from the Christmas Wordfetti set.

GRL PWR




I am up on the Erin Lee Creative blog today with this card featuring some products from our latest release.  I used the GRL PWR set I love this set that is all about women supporting women. The image would also make a great Mother’s Day or Birthday card as well. 

To create this card I started with a top folding white card base, I used the Quilted stencil and the Blending Brushes and some Hero Arts ink to create a subtle background. 

I stamped both the image and the sentiment on a separate piece of card stock,  colored them with Copic markers and cut them out with the Coordinating dies

To finish the card I added some polka dots to the yellow shirt and popped them up on my card base with foam tape.

A Little Nuts



I am up on the Picket Fence Studios blog today sharing this shaker card using the new Slim Line Die Cutting System. This is the first card I made using this new system and it was so fun!

To create my card I used the smaller of the two panel dies and cut one of white and the other out of Kraft cardstock. I ink blended a sky background on the white one and the Kraft one I cut of three of the squares that has the trees from the SDCS. I used Snowdrop Paper Glaze to make the trees look more like birch and added the notches on the tree with a brown Micron pen. 

Next I stamped the squirrels from the A little Nuts on a seperate piece of cardstock, colored them using Copic markers and cut them out with the Coordinating dies. I added them along with the sentiment to the blended background.

To turn this into a shaker card I added a piece of acetate to the kraft panel, placed foam tape around the squares and added sequins from the Maple Burbn Splash, Candy Corn Shot and Screwdriver mixes. 

To finish the card I added the shaker panel to a Kraft card base.

Christmas Gnomes


I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with this set of cards using the two Gnome sets, Gnome Winter and Christmas Gnome.  The Winter Gnome is from the October release and the Christmas Gnome was released last month but they both coordinate so well together. HERE are the two cards I made back in September using the Christmas Gnome set, I am adding these four for a set of six cards. 


To create these cards I used white card bases and some patterned paper by Echo Park. I stamped all the gnomes, colored them using Copic markers and cut them out with rectangular dies. I have been challenging myself to use more patterned paper because I have so much and never use it.

Fall = Scarecrows

There's a new CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers of Fall Scarecrows, I hop you will play along.
To create this card I started with a white top folding card base, a piece of patterned paper and a white panel. I used the Happy Harvest set by Lawn Fawn along with the Coordinating dies. 
First I stamped the corn stalks using Stardust ink and then added the pumpkin and colored it using Copic markers. For the ground I used several Copic markers in browns and the pointillism technique. On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the scarecrow image, colored him using Copic markers and cut him out with the coordinating die.
