Happy Holidays!

I have been having a ball playing with the new Hero arts sets. I saw this one on a blog also cased. I used my supplies and thought that this was cute using a nestie. There is a similar idea in the Jingle all the way Hero Arts holiday 2010 catalog using the wreath kit.

I just love this stamp set and I was cruisin the blogs and I came across this lay out on Silke Ledlows blog and WOW! Just loved it. I cased it and had to recreate it my own colors and paper. Wow! I thought it came out really cool.

Stamps: PTI-Falling leaves Paper: Vanilla, DP- PTI autumn abundance Ink: Kaleidacolor- autumn leaves Accessories: Top note, big kick, SU! label punch, pearls, Nesties, pop dots, ribbon

I love you!

I wasn't sure how this one was going to come out and I have to say that It came out awesome. Still having issues to how my camera shoots to a flat object. A work in progress. I did a couple of different techniques here. I wanted to make a peice of wood like out of paper. which of course looks totally different here that the real thing. Anyways, I took a piece of paper, and swiped it with brown dauber and let dry, then swipe again with white school glue- let dry and then over it again with a white dauber ( happen to grab the wrong one which was a pearl. and had to touch it up with the brown again. to hide some of that shimmer Happy accident I guess). Then I could die cut it.
Stamps: PTI- Falling leaves, leaf prints with matching die Paper: Choc Chip, Vanilla, White Ink: Kaleidacolor- autumn leaves, choc chip, encore gold, TH distress ink- walnut stain Accessories: Adirondack Acrylic paint dauber (espresso, pearl), PTI mat stack die, SU! label punch, leaf dies PTI, TH scoring tool, pop dots

I wanted to thank you for everything!

I finally have a chance to play again. I been making these lovely cards for my Mother-in Law. She has many many cards to give out. My Father-in Law. Very near and dear to all of our hearts just passed away. So, I am taking advantage of this therapeutic time of creating. Anyways, enough of that. I just got some new stamp sets from PTI. Fantastic. Many of them have matching dies and coordinating paper. Etc...You'll see I have a few cards here to show ya.
