One More

I was able to finish one more card tonight. This was using Rebecca's technique for making dipped leaves in our projects 

I received my order from Friday and was able to use the Hey Stacks and new Canyon Clay paper on this card. That was great as I had used Canyon Clay on the leaves from Harvest Berries. The green leaves were dipped in an older color I had on hand. 

I know who I'm going to send this to as well! Thanks again PTI for everything!!


II don't know about you, but I had a blast doing the projects for StampaFaire. I decided to post a few of my favorites since I used Instagram to upload them. 

This was for the Warm up challenge. When I saw the stack of bowls in pretty colors, I thought of this stack of cups right away!

I didn't purchase any crinoline but used some fabric stash to make my flowers. Bonus, they had already been backed with interfacing which is something I like to do when using fabric on cards. I just love the navy and yellow together!

This is a second card I made using Ashley's leather technique. I know I will use the for many guy cards!

Even though this took a while to dry, I was amazed at how it worked! I think mine got a little thick, but it was so fun to do. I used Ombré Borders to create my texture lines in Terra-cotta Tile. 

This is the last card I'm sharing today. I loved the messy silver flakes! And even though I used a container it was too small and I had silver everywhere! But how gorgeous is that silver with the purple? Might be my favorite!

So that's it for today, sorry it's so long. I made a few extra cards with my stamping buddy, PJ, so I'll share those soon. 

Hope you had fun too!

Snuck in a card this month! I've had a busy week, but really wanted to try out some clear embossing paste that I was inspired to purchase  after seeing Dawn's awesome dot card!

Looking forward to having those new stencils!

August 2017 Inspiration Challenge

What a wonderful inspiration piece! I love how it's fall colors, but not traditional! 

I chose watercoloring for my card. I just want to get better at this technique, and Altenew stamps offer great coloring choices for that.   I've used Peony Scrolls on this card. 

One of the things I did, was emboss with two different gold embossing powders. If you look, the scrolls are more glittery than the flowers. I love the finished look. I used some splatters and sequins to finish it off!

Thanks for looking!
