Thrill of Hope


I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today sharing this card. I love this stamp set for making Christmas  cards but it is also a great set for making masculine cards as well.
 I shared another card made with same set HERE on my blog yesterday.
Both cards were made using a blending stencil and the Life Changing Brushes by Picket Fence Studios.  I started with a shite top folding card base and a white panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller. I stamped the trees and then blended distress oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Blueprint Sketch and Squeezed Lemonade. Next I spritzed water on the panel let it sit a second and then dabbed it off with a paper towel. I stamped the deer and the greeting to finish the card

Picket Fence Studios October Release



It's release day at Picket Fence Studios and once again they did not disappoint, the October release has more adorable stamps. The one I used on my card is Have a Wonderful Wintry Day and it is Adorbs! 
I love the snowman and the one in this set along with the others are so cute! 

To make my card I started with a top folding white card base and a panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller. First I stamped the snowman and then masked him off while I created the background and stamped the snow.  I stamped the snow using Versamark ink and embossed it with White embossing powder and then to create the background I used the medium 3.5 inch blending stencil and a medium Life Changing Blender Brush along with Gina K ink. I wanted to give the appearance of a snow globe so I added lots of snow using a white Gelly Roll pen.
To finish the card I added the greeting below the snow and adhered the panek to the card base.

Moonlighting

I added a greeting from the Christmas Pine set and then finished the card by adding some snow to the background with a white Jelly Roll pen and adhering the finished panel to the card base.

Joy Clair Fall in Love



Hello and welcome to the Joy Clair Fall in Love event with all of our design team, so be sure to head to the Joy Clair blog so you can see everyone's project using our new release stamps.



To create my card I used the new release Falling Leaves Background with the Hello Sentiments set.
I started with a white top folding card base and stamped it twice once once on scrap paper and once on the card front. I colored the one stamped on the scratch paper using Copic markers and fussy cut it out and then attached it to the card front and left the rest f the leaves uncolored. For the greeting I used the Hello Sentiments and outlined the hello with a fine black marker. The word fall is from the Hello Autumn set 








Foliage



It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS, our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers with a $20 gift card to their store.  I hop you will play along.



To create my card I used one of my all time favorite fall sets by Concord & 9th.
I started with a white top folding card base and a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped the background image on my card front and then stamped the leaf on the watercolor paper, colored it using some Gina K inks and then die cut it out and popped it up.

World Card Making Day with Joy Clair - Smooshing


I am back with another card for our WCMD challenges at Joy Clair. This one is hosted by Kerry and its smooshing. 


To create my card I started with a white card base and a white panel cut down a quarter of an inch smaller. First I stamped the tractor from the Blessed Harvest set and masked it ff to create my background, to do this I used some acetate and distress ink, I smeared the ink on the acetate and then spritzed it with water and smooshed my panel into it to make the ground. Leaving the tractor still under a mask I stamped the corn. I removed the mask and colored all the images using Copic markers. to finish the card I used a cloud stencil to add a sky in the background
