( gorgeous color, must buy a pack) the sentiment ( Impression Obsession) is stamped with Versafine on Neenah. this panels is up on pop dots, the lace is vintage and the whole thing is 6" square in real life. The sentiment panel was colordusted with tattered rose distress ink while the diecut was still inside the die, ( cleaned the die after) the blushing bride die cut has some creamy brown fluid chalk ink along the edges.


Melissa found this PSX stamp at an yardsale for a decent price and sold it to me, it arrived in this afternoon's mail :) Nope, they are not identical, the card on the right has a different shade of Versafine for the Hero Arts sentiment. these are 6" square in real life, Neenah Classic Cream, Cosmo Cricket (stripe pp) green is bazzill cs. Hero Arts stitched pumpkins with Stampendous sentiment tags, walmart hempstring, double sided MME wild asparagus pp. There are 4 of these ... and they just may go in the paper bin... Hampton Arts dollar bin pumpkin trio. ( colored with copics ) (that is the bugs me thing) recollections mini brads, scraps on the table.


Pumpkin gifttags

Hero Arts stitched pumpkin with an Stampendous sentiment versafine inks, (scraps on the table) these are 3" square in real life. the string around the pumpkins stem on the left card came out of Julie's etsy shop. there is some karen foster scrapers floss in the one on the right. Since I used an 1/16 hole punch on the stems there was no way that scrap of ribbon was going through those holes, so it is sewn through the paper and the scrapers floss holding the sentiment tag. this ones 3" square also.


Blessed Thanksgiving

Trying to catch the diamond glaze on the berries ( see it?) berries have a bit of SU bravo burgundy marker on them under the glaze. this panel is up on pop dots. 6" square in real life, a bit more of the crappy er, thin MME pp, some basic grey (solid) pp, the PSX bittersweet wreath was stamped with versafine vintage sepia on Speckletone Oatmeal cs then added the Denami designs sentiment to it. the ribbons (creative something) and the cardbase is Bazzill. It feels like it should be Fall here at the moment. supposed to freeze again tonight.

couple more Jacks..

Peddlers Pack Jack heat embossed with Antique Linen Distress powder on stardream copper shimmer, the stripe pp is from Cosmo Cricket, the orange (paper thin stuff) is from MME... ( dont ever buy those big pad/packs of "designer" paper at costco.. its so cheaply made ( its not what is for sale by the sheet at all) this tore as i was trying to run the ATG along the back side which is how the A Muse sentiment ended up going so low in the corner ( hide the torn cheap paper) It's 6" square in real life. This one, tried doing a row of 1/16 gold eyelets along the top edge.. the two cardstocks were so thick they could not go through both and stay fastened so as soon as i started banging away on the next hole the previous hole would pop off... so, took the crop-o-dile to it and punched each eyelet out/off and ran this skinny Micheal's gingham through the holes. the center bow was done with an Bow easy. ( Paisley PP is from Daisy D's) the sentiments from Great Impressions, up on pop dots, the red kaiser pearls are a little "off" ( pink-ish red) but, its not totally clashing so left them. this one is heat embossed with ZING orange powder, the openings into the Jack were colored with an Gellyroll glaze (gold) pen. so this has some bling as it tilts. its 6" square in real life too.


Hello Jack

This ones 5X7 in real life, the Peddlers Pack jackolantern background is heat embossed with ranger superfine detail gold onto Stardream copper shimmery cardstock. This is matted with some Soft Suede cs. the printed papers I've since forgotten... as the ribbon. the side was punched with an SU punchie. Hello was done with Versafine Habanero on a scrap of Gina K Designs, punched with the smallest size of oval hand punchies from SU. there is an pop dot under it and its tied with some old vintage crochet thread (cream with gold metalic thread wrapped around it)


Cuppa Snow

I thought it would be fun to use "Christmas" colors with snowmen... my brain usually does them in blue shades, so... I have to snag more of these IO images some time too when i think of it. I think this was the last one in the stash. the stripe pp was from the scrap bin, the real read cs has some gold leafing spray ( spray painted onto it) the felt flowers are American Crafts, the gold brads are from Reminice. the red mat under the image is some thing i think you can get at M's. this ones A-6 in real life.



Pink & Tan {Anniversary / Love}

Started with this anniversary card using the Bittersweet pp and then made the gift tag sized cards from the scraps... This one's 6" in real life.

restamped the sentiment on this one, the first one was centered on the punchie, then the flower was "too big" too close, so stamped it again on an scrap of oatmeal speckletone and layered it to the tag. The great impressions sentiment is what is stamped inside both the anniversary card with these and the one from the other day.


Simple Anniversary card

I knew i needed this card, and i waited till the last minute, (happens all the time) so, in a hurry ( today was one of those never ending days... didnt even get home till 5. yeah yeah i know there are lots of people getting off at 5 but for me getting home at 5 is an L O N G day... this card came together really quick, grabbed the heart embossed panel out of the tin looking for an colored image that conveyed LOVE but, not finding anything then added the provocraft handmade paper to back it, fixed the ribbon after this was shot (corner was caught under an pop dot) the ribbons unknown, most likely offray or wrights though. this is 6" square in real life, the su background was heat embosssed on the shimmery gold cardstock with seafoam white embossing powder (a long time ago) the sentiment is stamped with versafine toffee on a scrap of diecutswithaview that was "close enough" colorwise. Its up on pop dots, did not have time to wait for liquid pearls to dry so used an gold marker to add the dots along the die cut scallops.


Let the Adventures begin

We bought this today from a couple over the mountains from their craigslist ad... :)
Has an shower, toilet, gas stove top & oven, icebox with freezer, AC , Heater, 2 beds, etc. so all of us including the dogs fit inside. Needs some blocks made so that it fits on the truck perfectly, one of the jacks needs repaired and the spare is not good either, needs hinges for some of the compartment doors inside, just little things.
