Wonderfall Embossed Leaves Card

Autumn….a much nicer turn of a phrase than fall, right?  This card should get you right in the mood of the season.

Wonderfall-Gold Embossed Leaves

I love to emboss, and I still am amazed when the fragments of dust melt into something so beautiful!

Wetlands Triangle Thinking of You Card

I love this color combination – Cherry Cobbler, Midnight Muse, and Marina Mist.  It gives off a bold, masculine feeling – which matches the Wetlands stamp set.  This is a very basic card design – with very little frufru.  I live with men.  They are not impressed with frufru.

Here’s a simple, easy card using the Woodgrain embossing folder and the distressing kit.  Sorry about the bad picture 🙁

Wetlands Thinking of You Card

Quick and easy card today – I even had the embossed polka dot strip already set to go!  You could use this card for a masculine birthday, thinking of you, sympathy, get well, or for any other general occasion.  Just a little bit of sparkle on the side from the glimmer brad – Enjoy!

Gently Falling Top Note Birthday Card

I’ve been itching to use my fall stamp sets.  Not that I don’t love my flowers, but I’m ready for the change of seasons.  Gently Falling is that perfect fall stamp set that can be used for many different occasions.  This is a swap I made over the summer – I love the masculine color combination.

Wetlands Alcohol Ink Technique Card

At last week's Technique Tuesday class, I taught my stampers a quick and easy technique using a clear block, dye ink refills, and hand sanitizing lotion.  Yes, you read that right – hand sanitizing lotion. 

I used a mini hand sanitizer (about 1 oz) and added 7 drops of Soft Suede dye ink refill.  I shook it up enough to distribute the drops of ink.  Then, I dropped about 5 or 6 drops on top of a large clear block.  I flipped the clear block on top of the center of my Very Vanilla card stock, pressing it lightly.  When I pulled away the clear block, it made a super-cool yet subtle design (more subtle due to the light ink refill I chose).  To speed up the drying, I used my heat gun.  Then I stamped the goose in Baked Brown Sugar right on top of the design (which I think looks a lot like grassy sand bar).

Here's the end result – the little droplets are just a bonus – my poor little goose was very nervous being photographed ;)
