Marble and Silver Autumn – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0032

Hello there,

Ever have a project stuck in your head and you just cannot find the right Designer Series paper to use to get the job done.  Well, that happened to me this morning.  So, I decided to pull out an oldie but goodie technique and created my own background paper.  Making your own background paper is so wonderful because you control all the colors that you put into it.  Then you don’t have to adjust your project to fit the background paper you make the background paper to fit your design.  It’s very freeing.

Leaves Bathed in Light – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0017

Hello there,

Light coming through leaves are for some reason calming and comforting.  It’s a wonderful image to have on a Sympathy card.  I created this branch of leaves using the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves stamp set (item 138802).  I used some simple coloring techniques in order to make the leaves look more realistic.

On Another Note. . . . .

This Summer has been a wacky kind of busy 3 months.  My garden has done really well and therefore, I have been super busy putting up all of the fruits of my labor.
Here are a few photos of what I have been up to. . . . . .

A couple of my shelfs of yumminess.

Lots of Pickling going on.  3 different types of pickles and picked jalepenos.

Onion crop was excellent.  Here they were drying before storage.

My peach trees are too small to get much fruit from so I picked up some really good peaches from a road side stand and canned peaches, peach salsa, peach jam and started some peach wine.

I grew corn for the first time this year.  :)

I’m still canning pasta sauce, tomatoes and salsa and will be until the tomato plants give up for the summer.

Fresh basil made up a lot of wonderful pesto for the freezer.
Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 3.05.28 PM
I snuck in some canning of chicken broth one day when the canner was sitting still at a rare moment from the veggies.
Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 3.05.38 PM
Bumper crop of green beens, so many that I canned up all we could possibly eat and then started giving them away.  Candied Jalapeños too, mmm.
There is really not very many days that I don’t have my canner going so there is so much more that I have canned up this season that I didn’t take photos of.  Needless to say it has been a terrific garden season!
Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 3.05.13 PMScreen Shot 2016-08-29 at 3.05.05 PM
Also I’ve been playing mommy to 1o new baby chicks.  Sadie thinks they make for great kitty tv.  :)
So please forgive me if I haven’t shared much about what has been happening around here lately,  like I said, it has been a crazy kind of busy Summer.  Now back to the garden. . .
Tell me do you garden and put up what you grow?

HAVE A SUPER FANTASTIC DAY!

Huge Hugs,

Grateful Cardinal – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0088_edited-2

Hello there,

Today I combine a few terrific stamp sets to create this Fallish cardinal card.  It’s easy to get hung up using only the stamps that come in a set but it is so fun to look outside that set and into our stash of stamps to pull different elements into your scene.  The sets I choose today work beautifully together, don’t you think?

On another note, the sentiment on this card could easily be changed to create a sympathy, birthday or a thank you card.  :)   Oh how I love multi purpose cards like this!

Leaves of Gold – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0022_edited-2

Hello there,

I’ve decked out some leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set, item #138802 in gold.

They look like they are going to a black tie event with their little gold and black bow tie.  Add some glowing handmade background panels and you have a truly special card for that special person on your list.

I think this would be a great Autumn Masculine Birthday card, don’t you?

Autumn Friend – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0026_edited-1

Hello there,

As I was making today’s project I found myself re-inking every ink pad before I used it.  I don’t add a lot of re-inker to each pad just about 10 drops.  This is the perfect amount for my liking.  I really dislike an over inked pad, but I really don’t like a dry one.

I’m asked often, “how do you get your scenes to look so vibrant?”  Re-inking my ink pads often is the answer.  My number one ink rule is never purchase an ink pad without purchasing the re-inker to go with it.

Also, don’t be afraid to be quite heavy with sponging or brayering.  Keep in mind your projects will dry at least 2 shades lighter.  Nothing worse than your project looking faded out after it dries completely.  So, go forth and re-ink my friends.  :)

You can see just how this was created in my tutorial for this project.

Hello there,

Leaf images are not just for the Autumn Season.  We tend to forget about our leaf stamps through Spring and Summer.  Today’s project shows just how great the leaves in the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves stamp set are  used outside of the Autumn Season.

Today’s tutorial will show you how to layer those leaf images with the embossed embossed technique.  I think you will be surprised how this comes together.  :)
