CutCardStock: Punched Pumpkin + Faux Patina

Hi, all!  I'm back with  my final project for the CutCardStock blog.  It's been a wonderful company to work with--many thanks to Amber, the DT coordinator, and Cindy, the owner, for everything! :)  Today, I'm sharing a fun card using a Faux Patina panel and a punched pumpkin, AKA a Punchkin.  Take a peek...

I used Classic Crest Solar White, Curious Metallic Cognac, Curious Metallic Mandarin, and Muscletone Kraft cardstocks for my card.  These papers are gorgeous and such a high quality!  The shine is absolutely STUNNING in real life.

I went with an autumnal color scheme because I am SO ready for fall. ;)  I think this turned out beautifully.  I hope you do, too!  I can't wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I invite you to visit the CutCardStock blog for a full tutorial on how to make this card.  One last THANK YOU to Amber and Cindy, as well!  I will be back soon with more crafty endeavors, friends!   HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)

Great Impressions: Seize the Daisies

Hello again, friends!  It's Monday, so that means I get to share another creation with you that uses some fabulous stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  Today I'm sharing a fun card using one the *NEWEST* sentiments, and it is a pun!  I LOVE IT!  Take a peek...

I decided to use the sentiment, D507 Seize the Daisies, as the center of...a daisy!  I'm a pun lover, so it was inevitable. ;)  Some leaves were added to reinforce the floral idea, plus a few other goodies.  The sentiment was highlighted with some Sakura glitter gels pens, too.

I just LOVE the way this turned out, and I hope you do, too!  Please let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below for me to read. :)

That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Peaceful Seas

Hi, all!  I'm back today to share a card using some beautiful stamps from the Red Rubber Designs store!  I used the Smackin' Acetate technique to create the beautiful sunset sky for image.  Come and take a peek...

As I stated above, I created a sunset sky using the Smackin' Acetate technique, then I stamped the image from the Peace Be Still stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I added more color with some Faber Castell Big Brush pens. I added a rhinestone daisy for a bit more shine and interest.

The card base was prepped with a punched border, a strip of patterned paper, and some velvet ribbon.  The sentiment, also from the Peace Be Still stamp set, was stamped using the same Memento Tuxedo Black ink and was added directly to the card base.

I really love the way this turned out!  I think the colors are perfect for an end of summer creation, don't you?  I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Be Strong & Courageous

Hi, all!  Well, I survived my first week back as a full time student, this time with ALL NIGHT CLASSES, and so I decided today I'd do a bit of blogging and share a card made with a teenage boy in mind. :)  It uses some of the *NEWEST* products from The Stamps of Life!  Take a peek...

Isn't that fun?!  I used Powdered Sugar cardstock for the card base and Gingersnap cardstock for the rest of the plain colored paper.  The green patterned paper is from the Wishes Collection Patterned Paper Pad. The shirt outline and sentiment are from the *NEW* tshirt2stamp set and were stamped in Licorice ink.

Since boys don't usually go in for fuss or embellishment, all I decided to add were some black enamel shapes to this card.  I LOVE the way it turned out--and I hope you do, too!  I would love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment below! :)

I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~

Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you take some time to join in the fun with these fabulous challenges!  I'll be back soon with more crafty creations. :)  Until the, HUGS and happy stamping to you all!!!
