Painted Autumn, Some Scraps from my Work Space

As I was cleaning up my work space, I noticed these 4 or maybe even more little 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ squares. I thought I should use those in a card.

We fussy cut the…

Simple Painted Harvest Card

This is another card we will make in my Stamp Club Class on September 5th. The Painted Harvest stamp set is amazing to use. Its a two step stamp. My first layer is Daffodil Delight, then Crushed Curry. The center of the flower is Soft Suede. You will notice that I’m only stamping half of the flower. Start in the center and then do the one on top and bottom. Mine aren’t perfectly centered, but…

Sunflower Using Eastern Medallions Thinlits

Then I added some of our new  Crushed Curry 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon. The sentiment from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set has this great greeting, to think of you is to smile. I used my 1 3/4″ & 2″ Circle Punches to punch…
