Stained Glass

I had a few minutes to finish up my card for MIM tonight, before we head to Michigan to visit my family tomorrow. I certainly thought of the beautiful stained glass windows of Notre Dame, as I created my window from Mendhi Medallion. 

I remember the wonderful jewel tones of glass, depicting different things from the Bible.  The richness of so much color, could never be duplicated, but I sure tried.  

Thanks for a great technique Betsy!

Double Dipping

I have another Make it Monday card to share.
 This is my first Christmas card for 2014!  

I did a double embossing using an embossing powder called Stardust, and then I did another step of embossing with gold.  The dies are from the Christmas Poinsettia set, and the flower and leaves were cut from a Kasiercraft print pack.  I added a limitless circle layer cut from Simply Chartruese to the back of the sentiment, and tied it up like a package with some gold cord.  It was all put on a piece of Soft Stone print.

It's super pretty in real life!

Thanks for stopping by!

Golden Leaves Bookmark

I was so excited to make a bookmark using Danielle's Make it Monday challenge!  This will be the perfect addition to my Mother-in-Law's birthday greeting next month!!  She is an avid reader, and always has a book from their library going.  I'm sure it's why she is still an active, soon to be 91 year old.  I love her to pieces, and I think she'll like this shiny bookmark!

I don't have the card made yet, as I'm getting the Birthday Classics November stamps tonight for it.  I plan to sew a pocket sleeve on my card to tuck this into. This was really fun!

Thanks for looking!

Inspired Tick Tock

I made this for today's Featured Stamper on SCS, Angie.  Here is the card I cased...  I really liked how the clock was put on book print, and wanted to do that.  I also stamped extra birds on the red print for interest. 

A little stamping on the envie is the finishing touch. 

Thanks for coming by!

October Color Play

I had fun coloring this afternoon... :-). The new Fancy That stamp set is perfect for doing just that! I used this month's color play, Kraft, New Leaf, Ocean Tides and Pure Poppy.  What a pretty combination.

It's always good to have pretty note cards to send.  I think this fits the bill.

Happy Sunday, and have a great week!

Fall and Masculine

I have many, many Fall birthdays to create for, and most of them are for guys!  So when I saw Atumn Adornments, I knew it would be helpful in my arsenal!

Using this weeks MIM, I created this for one of my twin brother in laws.  Love this sentiment from Book Club!  Perfect for my age family and friends...haha!

The background is the Woodgrain impression plate. Love it with the fall leaves!

Thanks for looking!  Happy Saturday!

A pillow for your head

I have to say, I think this tag die took on the look of a pillow for this cozy get well card..,

This was mailed to a customer of ours that had ankle surgery and will be down for a good six weeks!  It's a little dark in the picture, but I used Spring Rain card stock and stamped the Autumn Pattern Pieces with Enchanted Evening ink for my background. The "pillow" sentiment was embossed in white on Chartreuse. 

Thanks for looking!

Today I'm trying my hand at this week's Make it Monday.  I used the SAF set called Filled With Joy.

The cardstock is Lemon Tart and Tropical Teal, and the Aida Impression Plate.  Makes it look like needlepoint!

Thanks for looking!
