Painted Harvest CASE (Copy & share everything)

I received the card on the right from Patty Bennett. She sends cards to all top 15 in her downline for sales. I needed one more card for my Card Class last week and thought, hmmmmm, I’m going to case Patty. I changed a couple of things, but the layout is basically the same. I loved how Patty used the “burlap” stamp, it gives the card a lot of texture without all the bulk. So…

Gourd Goodness

What a fun name for a stamp set. I originally bought this set because of the beautiful leaves, but look at these gorgeous pumpkins. Its a two step stamp with both pumpkins. At first when I stamped the solid image, I thought, you really don’t need the 2nd stamp…….boy was I wrong. It totally makes the pumpkin “pop”. Then I “winked” it with Wink of Stella. The stems each have two stamps too. I am…

Let’s Make a Difference Together

Along with many of you, we are watching with concern as stories unfold about the devastation left behind in Texas and Louisiana by Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey. Though no one knows how many lives have been affected, Harvey is said to be one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, and the damage caused by massive flooding will be felt for years to come. With you, we’re also trying to stay informed on…

Halloween Window Box

Isn’t this a fun box? This is one of the projects Patty brought for us to do a couple of weeks ago. We used the Foil Frenzy Specialty Paper for the box, sponged a Metallic Foil Doily black, the scallop is the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (layering Circles Framelits) & the sentiment is from the Spooky Cat stamp set. I have to tell on myself. I totally put adhesive on all the flaps and…

Painted Harvest, Patty’s Way

Isn’t this card beautiful? This one was designed by Patty. Its got 6 layers but still a simple design. We started off with a Whisper White card base (you could use the new Thick Very Vanilla too). The flowers were stamped on Whisper White using Daffodil Delight for the first color, then Crushed Curry to add the highlights. The inside of the flowers are Early Espresso as well as the sentiment. We fussy cut the…

Painted Harvest Fall Card

I really love how this card turned out. I’ve seen several takes on this technique. I LOVE the Painted Harvest Stamp Set. What better way to show it off than with the word FALL, using the Large Letter Dies. I originally did the one of the left. When Patty and I got together a while back we made this card and I totally forgot the top two layers. They both work, but really like the…

Merry Cafe Hot Cocoa Mug

You may have seen this card yesterday. I put the wrong date in and it posted early before I had put in the text. So sorry for that. But now I have the text done so you can see how I made the card. Isn’t this a fun card? I totally cased it from Monica Gale. I loved everything about it, and it uses the Coffee Cups Framelits. The snowflakes are from Seasonal Layers Thinlits.…

Count my Blessings Watercolor Card, Holiday Catalog Now Live!

This is another beautiful stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. Its on page 50. My Stamp Club Gals will be making this one too! I’ve got a 1 3/4″ strip of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper on the left side. I stamped the flower image onto Watercolor Paper with Black Archival Ink twice, and cut one of each of the flowers out. This really makes the flowers pop. I water colored with my Aqua…

At Home With You

I made this card for a co-worker of my husbands. They just signed papers on their house, and I knew this would be the perfect stamp set to use. I asked hubby, what does their front door look like? What color is their door? Of course he couldn’t remember (he fixed their a/c), so I decided to go with the green brick (not sure why I chose green), using the Embossing Paste with Pear Pizzazz…
