Happy Fall!

Hello Everyone!
I know I have posted anything for awhile. Especially a card. I needed a quick card so this is what I went with.
I was trying to make it even simpler for a challenge but I just couldnt do it.
I have been really busy lately. I had two orders in the last two weeks for card boxes and then making kits for Peddlers Pack and of course stamp club.
Next week I am having a get together with a potluck and making christmas cards for Treats for the Troops. I hope to send a nice large batch for them.
So I am keeping really busy but I will have cards soon to show for that. I am trying to keep them simple so I can make more and also so the soldiers will be able to pay the minimal amount of postage possible.
Happy Stamping!

Grumpy Old Men!

Meet Gus! He is a digital image from Bugaboo Digital Images. He comes in a lot of different images.
I colored him with copic markers. Used a glitter pen on the balloons and his glasses.
I sponged around the image with Always Artichoke. Then added the dew drops.
He is cut out with rectangle spellbinders and then layered with scalloped rectangles with Always Artichoke cardstock. I used one of the banner dies from Spellbinders, inked it up white it was still in the die with a sponge and then stamped the sentiment, which I think is Stampendous.
I used some olive ribbon and the ds paper is from Graphic 45 A Proper Gentlemen Collection. For the strip down the left side I used the SU cheesecloth background stamp.
Happy Stamping!

Same Design, Different Card!

This is the same design I made the Wee stamp card with. I changed the papers and stamps and added a bow instead of a flower. The stamp is Peddlers Pack. So this card was a sample card, made into kits and being used at stamp club. I love multi purpose projects. Sure cuts down some.
I colored the image with copic markers, used some spellbinder dies and added some ribbon and dew drops.
The papers are so pretty. This is one paper that is two sided from Sei called Winter Song for the base and behind the house is Reminisice Christmas Swirls.
I think the red flowered paper will make great card boxes and I needed to make a bunch of those so you may be seeing some of them here soon.
Happy Stamping!

Gold Reindeer!

For my sample cards for Peddlers Pack I got a punch of Starfoam stickers. I used them on the corners and also the Greetings too. Thats why its crocked. They are a little hard to get on your card and off your fingers. The deer stamp is Peddlers Pack. I used a nestie die for the deer. Added some ribbon and just colored the ribbon around his neck. The designer paper is from Reminisce called Christmas Swirls Red. It has swirls on one side and poinsettias on the other. It has a little shimmer to it and is very pretty.

Black and White Christmas! 2nd posting today!

I havent had much time lately for the challenges. Today I was almost ready to need a new sketch and stopped by Cupcake Craft challenges and saw that is was black and white christmas. For some reason I really wanted to participate in this challenge and saw I only had 1 hr and 6 mins left on it. So I jumped to it and made this card. I used all Peddlers pack stamps and some fun black and white papers I had purchased for the card boxes. Colored and glittered the little guys and added some flowers.
I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop  and got busy.
I hope you enjoy my quick card.
Here is the sketch for it. I had to tweek it just a little.

Mr Santa!

This Mr Santa is a Peddlers Pack stamp. I stamped him and colored him with coic markers and glittered his hat. Then I layered him with lacey scallop oval. I found this beautiful gold ribbon at the beach last weekend but sadly its all gone now. I think I used it on almost 20 cards so I did get lots of use out of it.
The papers I used with him are bazzill red, and then Winter Wonderland Collection called Candy Cane from Websters Pages.
I used a martha stewart punch down the edges and added some red dew drops. On one of the cards I added gold dew drops and that turned out really pretty also.
Happy Stamping!

Isnt this little guy the cutest??? He is from Stampavie. I have an extra one in my store supply for anyone interested. I pulled these christmas papers out from last year I think. The gold ribbon is from my soon to be store also. The Cherry Cobbler ribbon is the new stampin up quilted ribbon. It has a nice shimmer in real life.
I used a new EK success punch that is really pretty but then it mostly got hidden. The die is from Spellbinders. I ran it thru twice to pop out the design and then put it back in the die and ran a sponge over the cutouts with cherry cobbler ink on the river rock cardstock. I think the river rock goes perfect with this paper.
I colored the image with copic markers. I wanted the bag to be paper pieced with shiny gold to make it look more like a shopping bag, but maybe with the next one.
Happy Stamping!

Fall Tilda!

This is a simple magnolia card I made. I had to make lots of them. I used the Forever Fall papers again. They are so colorful. I added some pretty gold ribbon from my store stash and a bow. Also some pretty pearl drops. Alice just happened to have a color that matched my card when we were at the beach last weekend. I paired the Forever Fall paper with Riding Hood Red and Peach Parfait stampin up cardstock.
Happy Stamping!

Wee Stamps!

I just love the line of digital stamps from Wee Stamps. They are just adorable. I used the papers from stampin ups new mini catty for this card. The flowers I had found online tutorial. They are made out of used dryer sheets. I ran them thru the cuttlebug with a flower shaped nestie, added some stickles. Then I punched out some of the papers I used and added a sugar brad. The bottom of the card is done with a magnolia die and the center a spellbinder die. I added some ribbon from my store.
For the layout of the card I fell in love with a card a found Debbie Olson. I saw it when I recieved the newsletter from spellbinders. She has great work. So I used the layout and came up with this card.
Happy Stamping!
