Painted Harvest

Happy Thursday everyone! DANG…am I ever glad it is Thursday or like I like to say Friday Eve!  LOL!!!  I am sooooo ready for the weekend!

We have an AWESOME sketch for you this week.  When I sat down to work on it, I was thinking about the YUMMY color inspiration from last week.  I was look at my card from last week, and decided to use the concept of last week and put into the sketch for this week.  What a fun card!

Here’s the details…

  • Crumb Cake – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Crumb Cake – 4 x 5 1/4,run the top part through the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder, stamp greeting using Early Espresso
  • Mini square print – 1/2 x 4 1/2, cut 2, layer on Crumb Cake Layer, trim ends, Early Espresso print – 1/4 x 4 1/2, lay on Crumb Cake later, trim ends; add panel to card front.
  • Very Vanilla – cut out largest Stitched Circle
  • Cajun Craze – cut out largest scallop circle, add Very Vanilla circle and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Peek-a-boo Peach, Soft Sky- stamp leaf image with matching ink, punch out with Leaf punch, add to card front

Non-Christmas Using Christmas Set

Here it is another Saturday already…and 2 DAYS until the start of school.  It’s a good thing I have this fun challenge to distract me!  This week we have to take a Christmas set and use it to make a non-Christmas card.  This was a fun challenge.  I decided to go CAS to make my card!

Is this a fun card?  I used the snowflake to make a general card.  I don’t think it really looks wintery.  Here’s the details…

  • Flirty Flamingo – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Silver Glimmer – 3/8 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp the snowflake in Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach, and Pool Party; stamp greeting and ‘swirl’ in Memento Black.  Layer onto Smoky Slate 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 then to card front using dimensionals
  • Add Silver Metallic Enamels Shapes to center of each image.
