Pick A Pumpkin

Hi stampers!  Happy Monday.  We have a BUSY week this week and I had grand plans to get a bunch of posts all scheduled ahead of time...that didn't happen.  Shocking, I know.  But I've been trying at least!  Oh well.  If I post this week great and if not, I'm sorry!

Anyway, I did play little over the weekend and made this cute little card.  The pick a pumpkin set is just TOO cute!  It can make fun cards with lots of layers or really simple ones like this!

I have been meaning to dig out the foil frenzy DSP to make some Halloween cards.  It's tangerine tango so it's perfect!  I inked my little happy pumpkin up in peekaboo peach and then used a sponge dauber to add some tangerine to it.  I also love how the sentiment (from the season to sparkle set) fits in the duet banner punch!  I have a bit of trouble with that punch, they seem to look a little naked to me but sponging some craft ink around the edges worked great!

Until next time....

Happy Fall Ya'll

Hi stampers!  Ahhhh...it's fall...even if it's 100 here (seriously, the heat indices are 100+)!

How about some nice apple cider to cool you down?  HAHA!  So I'm not in love with this card but I made it so I'm sharing it.  And I'm sorry that the apple cider is hard to read.  I'm still struggling with lighting here at times.  I do really like tranquil tide and cherry cobbler together though!


I've struggled a bit with this set...are you seeing a theme for me lately?  But I'm pressing on!

Happy stamping!

Dreaming of Christmas

Or at least cooler temperatures!  Hi stampers!  It's a hot one in OK today, with heat indices near 100! Apparently it's the same back home too so at least I'm not alone.  Ian's ready for Christmas too.  He was just talking about Santa bringing him presents :-)  

Today's card is inspired by my friend Cathy Casey.  I saw a card she posted on IG over the weekend and fell in love with it and her color combo of tranquil tide, pool party, and soft suede!  This isn't actually the card I cased but it was inspired by the colors!


While I think you know I LOVE the Christmas sets in the holiday catalog, there are also some pretty spectacular sets in the annual catalog and I need to give them some love.  I LOVE Merry Mistletoe!  It's such a great set so don't overlook or forget about it!

Sadly, it doesn't feel ant cooler after this post :-)

I Need Fall

Hi stampers!  I'm so ready for all things fall.  Too bad it's hot as heck here right now.  It rained Tuesday morning, well stormed actually, just when it was time to take Ian to school.  That was fun!  So then it was HOT and MUGGY all day. YUCK-Y!

At least I was channeling some fall over the weekend when I made this card!

I LOVE the Seasonal Lantern set but I have to say, it intimidates me a little bit.  There's just so many things you can do with it so I had to sit down and just play with it.  I decided to cut out the lantern here instead of stamp it.

I made my background by putting some ink from my pads (pumpkin and tangerine) on a clear block with my aqua painter then I just placed my paper on top. I've shown you this before.  After it was dry, I flicked some ink on it.


And can we talk about these colors for a second?  Tranquil tide, fresh fig, lemon lime twist, tangerine tango, and pumpkin pie are just fabulous together!

If I make enough fall cards maybe it will cool off!  I wish!

Happy stamping!
