Autumn Days 12 Kits

 Hello and Happy Halloween! 

Well, it's that time of month when we share what each team member has made with the card kit that was sent out to us. Our host for the month is the sweet and talented  Sharron : On Papillon Wings. Oh, what a pretty kit!

For the card above, I die cut a few of the patterned papers with Poppystamps die .

I colored the leaf with zig pens and shimmer over that. I used the 
Crimped Frame Die  from The Greetery for the frame. The envelope liner was cut using an envelope liner then :2236 Maple Leaf Side Strips and Stencil craft die from Poppystamps 

 I used lots of scraps for this one all cut the same width then taped together. I used some foam to raise the upper panel .

I went ahead and colored in the cute pie image , always afraid with only one  chance to get it right.

Thanks so much for stopping by! As you can see Sharron sent out a beautiful fall kit with many images I didn't have . Thank you Sharron.
 Please stop by The 12 Kits of Occasions  Blog to see what the other designers (friends) have made. The complete list will be in the upper tab on the blog .HERE

Autumn Feast Challenge #99

Tag You're It #99

Hello ! I have a fun fall tag to help inspire you to play along.
I loved the pretty picture and wanted to use this pretty new set from The Greetery: Harvest Home Stamp Set.
I didn't add any pumpkins but I added the bails of hay and one large fall leaf. 

I framed my fall tag using  Poppystamp Double Stitched Craft die and Frames.
For the sky I used Taylor Expressions blending brushes.
Thanks for the visit .

Christmas Barn

Hi there, just popping in with a quick card. I'm trying to get a few cards done ahead for Christmas.
 I bought these stamps sets from the Greetery after seeing Betsy's gorgeous snowy farm scene.(Below)

Betsy's card is stunning!

 I used Taylored Expressions blender brush and oxide ink for the background  sky and bit of pathway.
I had a hard time not adding foam to the back panel of this card , I am trying to keep my cards flatter for mailing this year ( if I mail)

Looks like tomorrow is going to be another big wind and high fire day. Very warm and dry out about 93 degrees today. Hopefully not much damage other than messy pool and yard.
I pray no fires for anyone.
Take care.

The Greetery:
Fir & Foliage No. 2 Stamp Set
Harvest Home Stamp Set
Christmas Eve Stamp Set ( for the sentiment)

The frame is from Memory box: Pinpoint Circle Frame

Birthday Card for Mom

CAS(E) this Sketch #344
Hello, kind crafty friends.  I wanted to play with one of my new stamp sets from Concord and 9th, 
so I made this card for my mom.

 I used my Crimped Frame Die from The Greetery, ( I use this a lot now) I heat embossed the frame and greenery, then fussy cut it out and raised it with foam tape. I watercolored using my Zig Brush Pens. I splattered the sides to go with the sketch .

The guest designer this time is Darnell, Darnell has a beautiful card on the Cas(E) this Sketch blog.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Simple Things Sunflowers

Hello! Hope you are all enjoying the fall, if not the weather, then maybe the football and back to school activities.

Trying to get this done before the electric company shuts down the power. We're in high wind area and expected to get very high winds, maybe up to 70 mph. This is new preventative measure, to help prevent fires in this big wind event. Not sure I am going to like this very much. I know fires much worse!

I created this anniversary card for a family member, it will say happy anniversary on the inside but love this quote for a marriage.
I used The Greetery , Sunflower die linked below and the Crimped Frame dies, ( I did frame in a frame )
For the background  I used Distressed Oxide Ink and Taylored Expression Blending Brushes. I love those brushes so much!

I cant tell you how happy I am that I bought the sunflower dies , I think they can be all season depending on the color you choose. 

Take Care!
Thanks for the visit!

Haunt It

CAS(E) this Sketch #341

Hi there and Happy October! I made this background with a stencil and blender brushes . I decided to add the witch and play along in the CASE this Sketch challenge.

The Spellcaster Witch  die is new and from Poppystamps, I  also used the Halloween Fun stamp set for the sentiment .  The stencil is Memory box from 2016 called Halloween Delicate Web.The witch is cut out of a fine glittered cardstock .

 In the past I didn't use stencils very much until now with the Taylored Expression blending brushes. I was lucky enough to get the first batch when they came out.

Two years ago today was one of the scariest days of our life and also one of the most blessed days. 

Let not your heart be troubled.
