Pumpkin Patch Girl

image

 

Good morning!

 

Today I am sharing another card from the weekend. When I was digging in the TE kit for papers, I discovered several stamped images I had in there from the last time I used the kit. I had even stamped the paper piecing part already! This is MFT’s Innocence Pumpkin Patch Girl.

So I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and blended it with Gamsol. Then added the paper pieces sweater. The rest of the card came together pretty fast!

 

I embossed the green cardstock with an old Sizzix folder and added a bow with ribbon from the kit.

 

Have a great day!

Autumn Wreath

Hi again!

 

Here is another card I made yesterday. This one is a fall card using Taylored Expressions Autumn Wreath stamp set and Sketch #466 from Mojo Monday.

I stamped the wreath and squirrel on Taylored Expressions Choice Buttercream cardstock and colored them with Prismacolor pencils.  I then blended the images with Gamsol and fussy cut them.  All the cardstock and patterned papers (Crate Paper Farmhouse) are from an old TE Key Ingredients kit (October 2011!). Here’s to using older stash!

 

Here is the sketch~

Halloween Cookies

Hi!

 

I’m trying to get back on track with my Fall and Halloween project and have this card to share tonight.

 

2016-card-99-pink-ink-halloween-cookies

 

I found this cute Halloween Cookies stamp by Pink Ink at a small scrapbook store last summer and finally inked it up last night. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and then blended it with Gamsol. I colored several images the same way yesterday and was quite pleased with the results! I think I might reach for my pencils more often now instead of relying on my Copics.  The paper is from Authentique Mysterious paper pad and I added die cuts from Taylored Expressions and MFT.

 

The layout is Sketch #370 from Tuesday Morning Sketches which closes in a few minutes!

Tonight is the NCIS: Los Angeles season premiere! One of my favorite shows and I’m so happy it’s back!

Have a great night!

 

6th Anniversary

Today is our 6th wedding anniversary! Hard to believe it has been that long already lol!

 

This is the card I made for Mike.  I used the current sketch at Case This Sketch and color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.  I used all Stampin Up supplies, including the Number of Years set that has made a few appearances on the blog in recent weeks!

The very vanilla layer was embossed with the Woodgrain folder but it’s not showing up too well. I thought it added a touch of masculinity to the card and it’s a reminder that we got married outdoors and took some of our pictures in a wooded area. 🙂
