Making a Scene!

     I think, if I had to choose my very favorite way you make a card, it would be to create a scene.  Today I have a card for you where I did exactly that.

The things I used:

Card stock:  kraft, mustard, and white
Stamps:  Crazy Birds by TH, Outhouse stamp by Rubber Cottage.  Sentiment is unknown.
Inks:  Distress Inks, Copic markers
Extras:  Glossy Accents

     I would like to enter this card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where it is Anything Goes week.

     The weeks are just zooming by, and before long we will be in full blown holiday mode.  Please enjoy a great Fall weekend!

Think Pink!

     Behold the use of pink.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and in honor of those who have won, lost or are still fighting their battle, I made this card.  It is CAS, using only a card base, one layer of designer paper, and a single SU! stamp set called Work of Art.  My inks are Distress Ink and Versafine for the sentiment.  A simple enamel heart is used to embellish.

     I will be entering this over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge called "Think Pink".

     We are seeing fallish weather this weekend, and I sure hope it motivates me to get some chores done around here.  What do you have planned?

I Love Plaid!

      This card was created for the Double D Challenge which is to use plaid.  Plaid gives everything a boost.  This is their inspiration photo.

     Here is the lineup of what was used:

Cardstock:  Crumb Cake from SU!, Lipstick Red from Gina K. Designs, White from Neenah
Inks:  Distress Inks in Fire Brick and Frayed Burlap
Stamps:  Background from SU! and sentiment from SU! Holiday Home.
Dies:  Deer from Penny Black, background circle from Gina Marie, love word from in'spire by SB.
Embellishments:  random red gems, courrigated scrap.

     I would also like to enter this card at Merry Monday Challenge #218 which is also Plaid.

     How can we possibly have temps in the high 80's?  Well it sounds like today will be the last
 of it.  I am seriously ready for fallish temps and pretty colors.  Have a wonderful Hump Day!

I Just Keep Getting Lost.

     I keep promising to be more blog active, but it just does not seem to be working.  I decided today was the day to show a card I made this week.  The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Halloween Inspiration,  and they had some great inspiration!

     This card has quite the combo of paper, dies, and stamps.
Stamps:  Pumpkin is a very old PSX stamp that I love.  Sentiment is SU! set called Tags for You.
Dies: Lawn Fawn stitched leaves.
Paper:  kraft card and designer paper from We R Memory Keepers.
Inks:  Copic markers and Distress Inks.
Embellishments:  Glossy Accents and corrugated trim

     I would also like to enter this card at Double D Challenges, where the theme is Pumpkin Time.

     Also, Tuesday Throwdown #314 is Leaves.  I thought this would work!

     It is suppose to be another gorgeous fall day here in PA.  I hope to get out and enjoy!  My thoughts and prayers go out to the people who have or will be in the path of Matthew.  Please heed all warnings and value life over property.
