Falling Leaves

Hi!  Back today with another Watercolor Lift card.  And I LOVE IT!!!!  I am also playing along with the sketch challenge over at Global Design Projects this week – #GDP054

SU! Vertical Greetings, Vintage Leaves

For this version, I used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze – and I decided to do my watercoloring randomly instead of in blocks like the snowflake card from last week.  Love how the leaves have a few different colors in them.

The sentiment is from Vertical Greetings and is stamped on Cajun Craze in Basic Black Archival ink.  A little natural linen thread around the top and  a little peek of Cajun Craze Design Series Paper underneath – and there you have it.

I’d love to hear what you think!

Finally, here is the winner from the August Team Stamp It blog hop:


Congratulations Diane!

More Trees

Yes, I know – another tree card – but this one is a little bit different – so hopefully you’ll love it as much as I do.  Recessed panel cards have been popping up on some of the demonstrator sites I follow and I decided to give it a try.

SU! Lovely as a Tree, Best Birds

Most of the versions I have seen have Designer Series Paper as the recessed panel and a die cut crossing over the top of the panel.  While they are pretty – I wanted to give my own little spin and stamp my panel instead.  I sponged my background – Garden Green for the ground and a mix of Crushed Curry, Pink Pirouette and Pumpkin Pie for the sky (was going for a setting sun look – but think I went a little too much with the Pumpkin Pie).  Still pretty – but I think I could do better.  The trees are from the classic Lovely as A Tree – I stamped the trees in the center first, then shifted to the left and right to fill in the entire panel.  The sentiment is from the Best Birds set – I really love the font in this set.

So what do you think?

I  do have an idea for another card – but the supplies aren’t here yet (they are on their way, tho!) – so you’ll probably see that one in a week or so.

Love Fall

Hi!  How are you today?  Hard to believe it is now September – and we are heading into my favorite season of the year.  I love Fall – the crisp air, fresh apples and the changing leaves.  Today’s card just warms my heart.

SU! Sheltering Tree

I went with the Sheltering Tree stamp set for today’s card – as it hasn’t seen any love in quite some time.  Did you know that you can flip over the leaves stamp and ink the backside to get a fuller looking tree?  That is what I did for my card as I felt the tree needed more than just the leaves.  The back of stamp is inked in Crushed Curry, stamped off once on scrap paper then stamped on my card.  The leaves were inked in Crushed Curry, then “thumped” with Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler markers.  I really love how it turned out.  The grass is inked in  Garden Green and stamped off once on scrap before being stamped on the card.

To finish off the card, I used the new Garden Green Solid Baker’s Twine found in the Holiday Catalog and a Very Vanilla button.
