.....in about 3 months, Christmas will be hear...can you believe that?! Not sure I'm ready for Christmas, are you? Anyways, thought I would share some cards that were submitted for the holiday categories but weren't picked up...I'm almost sure this was for a 'snowman' category... :) The problem with showing these reject cards is you can't remember what it was for because you made it about 7 months ago.
Isn't the snow guy cute? Everything is from October Afternoon except the pearls and cardstock. Fun little card, very CAS!
Here in the states it's the first day of Autumn, marking the Fall weather, and the beginning of cooler temps....and brings us lots of warmer and soothing colors like auburns, mustards, oranges, forest greens, and teals. This is one of my favorite 'leaf' stamps from Hero Arts called theLeaf Flourish:
I've used this leaf stamp in several ways, coloring/blending with markers, and my favorite is embossing with white embossing powder then blending my distress inks like these older cards below:
Wonder how else I could play with this stamp? Is it cooler where you are? We are still drenched in heat, but we should be seeing the Fall weather around October.
Been making lots of cards today, some for pub calls, others for fun and just for me.....isn't this one cute....little masking tape stickers from Pebbles:
I was going for a block look with the tape but decided to just go random, I added a dimensional sticker from MME, and a fun flag from Bella Blvd. Added a super large pearl from Teresa Collins.....gotta love those large ones! Rounded only one corner of the card. And I'm done.
