I made this card back in May! Whoa!! I still have some cards in my "To be Blogged" file, and am finally making my rounds to posting everything when I remember to. I still LOVE October Afternoon, how about you? Almost everything here is from the 5 & Dime collection:
Just the scalloped die-cut is from Doodlebug. The flower was cut out from a piece of patterned paper.
I used a bit of my own handwriting on the sentiment. Fun! I need to write more instead of type so much! ;)
A CAS, 5" x 5" sympathy card today....using baby blue and soft pink papers from Pebbles and Webster's Pages. The stamped image and sentiment is from THIS set from Hero Arts.
The blue ink is called Soap Powder by Jenni Bowlin. Isn't that a fun name? I have a few of these inks, but I'm thinking I need them all, yum! Have you noticed I'm keeping my posts much shorter these days? Just a photo and brief description. Keeping it simple. :)
I've been wanting this Simple Frame stamp for a while now, I kept saying I would get it someday, and I finally did, yay! I mixed it up with another stamp set called Bold Blooms, I made 2 different cards using the same sets:
The one above is a little warmer with orange, red and yellow colors. The next one is more dainty with just light blue and yellow as my color scheme:
The first card I did more controlled stamping and the second card was more carefree and random! I hope you like, I can tell I'll be using this Simple Frame a lot more! Oh, and those inks....Jenni Bowlin, delicious!
This little card makes me happy, haven't posted it yet before. Birds and butterflies just seem to go together naturally. All Pebbles, once again on this card, just the doily is from LYB.
Thanks for peeking! I need to go find some inspiration...I've been mojo-less for 5 days straight, haven't even touched my crafting supplies, they've been sitting in the closet a little lonely. Poor things. I'm hoping to spark some new and fresh ideas soon, but right now, nothing comes to my head.
I have to confess, I'm not really a Fall or Winter type of person at all! I cringe the day after Halloween, because I know what is coming....cold weather...lol.. Oh, the horrors of not being able to wear my shorts and flip flops... BUT....I do like the warm colors that the Fall Season emits....
So here is a Fall themed card I made a while back, love this leaf flourish stamp! Have used it many times now. I have no recollection what type of patterned paper I've used, sorry....Enjoy!
Happy Weekend! I've been playing with some new Jillibean, Crate Paper, and My Mind's Eye, three lovely combos:
I couldn't bare to cut my doily at the bottom there, so decided to just leave it, a little interesting, I'm starting to like things sticking off of my card. :) Anyhoo, I also used the MS butterfly punch and the sentiment is a rub-on.
I'm still loving the floral trims from Webster's Pages...gosh, there's just all sorts of stuff on this card. The colors still reminds me of Summer!
Enjoy your holiday and be safe!

Finally was able to craft a little late last night. I played with lots of flowers on this one, because you know nothing makes me happier than flowers. :)
I used a fun, leaf punch from Martha Stewart. I must confess, I love all the MS punches and take my time getting around to them, so I don't know how old this leaf punch is, but I love it! Punch an abundance of them and make your own vine throughout the card.
I used some scraps of paper from Echo Park and some pastel pearls. Keeping this post short and sweet. See you.
