Thanksgiving?

Its funny to be making fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas cards when its still so hot outside but as a card maker I have to think ahead. This card is for Thanksgiving and I love how colorful it is.

I stamped the image and did some basic copic coloring. No shading other than a tiny bit on the turkey. I used a few different fall colors and I really like how it turned out.

For the background I used two different patterned papers and then just adhered the image on top using some craft foam to give it dimension. I added a few little fall colored gems and thats it. Quite quick and simple.

Stormy Sunday

We’ve had lots of wind and rain today…our temperatures have dropped significantly. Its kind of a relief from the hot sun, as long as it doesn’t linger!

As usual, its been a busy week. My daughter deals with three chronic illnesses and we’ve had Dr’s appointments this week with more coming up.

I didn’t get to spend a lot of time cardmaking this week but I did make a set of July 4th cards.

I went to my local craft store this week and found paper packs by Photoplay called Gnome for the Holidays. They ahve the cutest gnome themed papers for lots of holidays…Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas etc. I used the July 4th pack and created these cards.

I just used the paper in the pack to layer and create the cards. I added twine and enamel dots to some.

I didn’t do any stamping on these. Its all just layered or die cut paper. I really love patterned paper so its fun for me to do a set like these. I can’t wait to use the other sets for Halloween etc.

They also had stamps and dies for these holiday gnomes, so I will be making some cards with those too.

I hope this finds you all well.

See you next time!

Rainy weekend

On Friday it was our first 100 degree day this year. By yesteday it was 45 degrees! Welcome to Utah!! Its still cold and cloudy today but it should be warming up again later in the week.

One of the best ways for me to spend a rainy afternoon is in my craftroom making a card. I didn’t really think about it when I chose which stamp set I was going to use, but I guess I was missing the sunshine!

This card was made using the “Every day is a picnic” stamp set from MFT. I also used their “Spring Whimsy” 6×6 paper pad.

I started by stamping the images on Neenah 80lb cardstock and colored them with copic markers. I cut the images with the coordinating dies. I then cut a heart using recollections heart die set. I also cut a 2″ strip of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment on that.

I then layered the papers and sentiment strip and then adhered the images using art glitter glue. I glued it all to an A2 sized card base and we were done.

Here is a list of some of the items I used in making this card.
