Vintage Leaves Thank You Card

To keep with the “Thanksgiving theme”, I would like to share with you another card that I made using the Vintage Leaves stamp set. I also used Block “D” to make the square in the background.

I first inked my Block with Crushed Curry ink and then ink only the outer edges with Pumpkin Pie ink, using the “Rock and Roll” technique! I stamped my Maple leaf on top with Memento Black ink. To complete my background, I stamped some ink splatters using the “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp with Sahara Sand ink.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve been away from my Blog for a bit since I started a new full time job.  I’m really happy about this new turn in my life, but I had to re-adjust to this new life and therefore I’ve neglected my blog in the process!!!

Today, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, I’m very grateful for my family, who is very supportive and who I deeply love. I’m grateful for my customers and followers for reading my blog post and leaving me comments!

Here’s my little Thanksgiving Curvy Box treat and Thank you card!

This is 2 of the projects we made at my Stamping club in September. We used the beautiful Vintage Leaves stamp set and matching Leaflets Framelits. I love creating Fall leaves with beautiful colors, using my ink pads and sponge daubers! Each one is unique! For the Maple leaf, I started with a Daffodil Delight card stock leaf, stamped with Early Espresso and added Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler. The oak leaf was also a Daffodil Delight card stock, sponged with Old Olive and Soft Suede.

The background is a special technique, made with tissue paper applied on top of a Crumb Cake card stock. Gently wrinkle your tissue paper. Cover your Crumb Cake cardstock with glue stick. Add the tissue paper on top leaving some wrinkles in the process. Trim the tissue paper around the edges. Stamp some ink splatters with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. This is a very simple technique, but it has a unique “handmade” paper look!

Vintage Leaves card: using clear blocks stamping!

Summer is still here with this warm weather but we know that Fall is just around the corner! So here’s a “Fall” card for you today! I used the new Vintage Leaves stamp set. This set also has matching Leaflets Framelits.

For the background, I used my clear block “B” to stamp 3 rectangles. I “inked” directly the block on the ink pad and used it to stamp my rectangles with Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie ink. The leaves were stamped with Mossy Meadow ink. I also added some ink splatters from my favorite “go to” stamp set: Gorgeous Grunge!

Purple Butterfly Card

Here’s another Butterfly card!!! This time I used the Watercolor Wings stamp set and Bold Butterfly Framelits with a Purple color scheme: Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss. In the background, I used the new Fluttering embossing folder. How cute is that? This embossing folder is 6″ x 6″ so you can use it for cards either on the portrait or landscape side. How brilliant is that?

To complete my card, I added a Blackberry Bliss ribbon and I used the little dots stamp image to add a bigger strip under my ribbon. It split the card in 2 parts, emphasizing the “greeting” area.
