I just had to try out my other new stamp set from Pink Cat Studio. It is called Limitless Limbs and comes with 2 trees and many little goodies to put on and around the tree. You can decorate the trees for an assortment of holidays and events. The little branches and dots at the bottom are stamps by Judith and not part of the set. I did sponging for the background. All images are colored with pencils and OMS. My candy corn and pumpkins are coated in crystal lacquer. The ghosts are coated in diamond Stickles. My layers of card stock are black and bermuda bay. The DP in the back ground is from K&Co's Halloween specialty paper pack by Jen Yanok. I added a bit of houndstooth ribbon and a few amber gems as embellishments.
I am slowly trying to get a grip on this spooky holiday, one card at a time. Have a wonderful Monday!

To create this card I use 2 different stamp sets. I used "Happy Camper" designed by the amazing, Theresa Momber and "Tree Silhouettes", which is a Gina K. Design set. My trees in the foreground were stamped in SU old olive. My mountains, table and sentiment were stamped in Memento, rich cocoa. I tried to keep it simple
so my table was colored in shades of brown pencil , cut out and popped up. All the pieces of my shaker were cut from Nestabilities. My goodies inside the shaker are from my stash. They are tiny plastic shapes that came in themes and I am so happy I found a use for them! They were a QVC purchase from when I scrapbooked more. Inside you will find bears, flowers, a deer, a pine tree, fish and fishing poles. I added a few olive pearl studs for some balance.
As summer is drawing to an end, children returning to school, I hope you are able to find some time to enjoy the outdoors. Till next time.......

The papers used on this card are from a company called Recollections who are producing things for Michaels. They have matching wood mount stamps in the dollar bin, and I must say, some of them are adorable. This paper is from a designer mat stack called Autumn. Oh, and they also have pearl studs and such that match the paper.... all very reasonable! So if you get a chance, check it out.
My images are stamped in Memento "Rich Cocoa. All are colored in pencils and OMS. I used a few SU punches and it was a done deal!
I am rushing a bit with this post as we are in for another delightful evening of sever storms. I am loosing sunlight as I type. About 10-15 miles from me, houses lost roofs and trees came down. They had to file for disaster relief and they say that clean up will take a long time. I feel badly but to be honest, I am sure glad it was not us this time. Oh heck, you just never know with these things. Have a creative evening!

Today I would like to share a card I made using a new stamp set I picked up. It is from Inkadinkado and is called Utopiary. I fell in love with this sweet little birdbath stamp! My image was stamped with London Fog, Memento ink. I added some soft color with pencils and oms. the swirls and splashes were done again in diamond Stickles. I created my other elements using Cuttlebug folder and Nesties. All of my distressing/sponging was done in Versamagic, purple hydrangea. My DP is Basic Grey, Wisteria. Ribbon is from M's dollar bin and I finished with Prima's and purple gems.

The first time that I went to a stamp convention with my daughter, Dee, I could not drag her out of their booth. As a matter of fact, they pretty much took her whole show budget! Well I hate to tell her but after making a quick trip to the website for this post, it looks like they have lowered most of thir prices! How wonderful for us!
Here is a simple sympathy card I created using one of the sets.

Today I would like to share just such a card. The main image is from Art Impressions and his name is Slim. The fence with western gear is an Ebay find and is Unknown as is the inside sentiment.

I created this card using Flourishes new stamp set called "Strawberries". The red dot dp is from Basic Grey's "Junebug". The blue dp on the bottom half was from my scrap bin, so I am unsure of maker. Images were stamped on a Nestability label. They were all colored with pencils and OMS. I used Stickles, brads, ribbon and a SU! corner punch for embellishments.
I hope everyone is enjoying all the wonderful flavors of summer! Buy and use all that you can during this bountiful season. Help support your local farmers.

These beautiful waterlilies were in bloom the other day and the colors were just amazing! I would really like this to be the beginning of many times we share at Lakeside Stamping.
