Fall to Layout #38, Take Two

This card is for the Clean and Simple Stamping blog's challenge, Fall to Layout #38, Take Two.

The patterned papers are from an old Die Cuts With a View matstack called "Linen Closet." I've had it for many years. (It's hard to tell, but the sentiment piece is patterned, also.) I matted the two layers with coordinating brown cardstock. I added three pearls for the butterfly's body, which was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The card base is ivory.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Repeat Impressions Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

I created this card for the Repeat Impression's challenge. The challenge is to choose three items from a Tic-Tac-Toe board. I chose the line across the middle: patterned paper, Washi tape, and black and white. Sorry I did not use a Repeat Impressions stamp on this card. (I did, however, use all RI stamps on the Halloween cards for the grandkids. :-) )

The sentiment is a die-cut. The bottom patterned paper is from The Paper Studio. I used Washi tape across the top of the patterned paper. Tic-tac-toe! :)

Rubbernecker Stamp - Times Three

I used the same Rubbernecker stamp on these three cards, and also the same markers to color it. Not a big difference between the three, but you get them all here, anyway:)

For this first one, I just stamped the image on ivory cardstock after coloring with markers. I matted it with blue cardstock. I embossed the image with a Darice Wire Fence folder. The sentiment was cut with a die three times and layered for dimension.

This was the second stamping of the image after spritzing the colored image with water. I matted with olive cardstock and cut the "hello" out of the same cardstock. It is layered, also. (I ended up not using the first stamping.)
This image was spritzed, also, and stamped on watercolor cardstock. I used the same Darice folder to emboss it. I used a metallic pen to draw the border around the edge. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set. I cut it and the matting with Nestabilities. I colored the scallops with the same metallic pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Fall-To Layout #37 Take Two

I made this based on Natasha's Fall-To Layout #37 Take Two.

The patterned paper is from another pack of paper that I got from our daughter-in-law's trip to Japan. So pretty. I matted it with pink - with the bottom edge punched with an EK Success punch. Then I matted that with black. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is matted with black and mounted on foam squares. I added a glittery flower with a pale pink brad in the center.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Season's Greetings

Another new die, and an older one. The new one is the scenery. The older one is the sentiment. I am quite certain, but not positive, that the sentiment is from Impression Obsession. I cut both die cuts out of silver foil cardstock. (I know - it looks more black than silver, but it truly is silver.) The background was done by rubbing the cardstock with a Stampin' Up! ink pad. I made sure to cover the bottom with ink. Another Christmas card done. I think I will make multiples of this card, but perhaps with a solid color background, rather than the inked-up one.
