Hi everyone! I had the best intentions of putting up a post yesterday but the phone and my kids stole my thunder! :)
I had a fun class in Hampton last night...we made some great cards from my upcoming 10 Quick Cards...everyone really liked the cards! On my way home, I always have my eyes peeled for little critters on the side of the road--last night I missed a couple but I believe there is a partial piece of a toad-like creature. It hopped up just as I went by and I heard the thud....ugh! No worries...I was driving Andy's car! :)
Okay...enough stories...back to samples...
Here is a fun card using the set, House of Haunts and the Haunting Wheel. Black ink with Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive inks were used with the brayer. A cute button made from the Buttons Die was added with some black gingham ribbon! LOVE IT!
This card was made with a discontinued set, but we've got lots of leaves...and I just love the technique. This was done by sponging fall colors on a piece of white cardstock, then clear embossing the leaf on top of the sponged color. THen, brayering (or sponging--but brayering is faster) black ink right over the top...the technique is called Joseph's Coat.
My dear friend, Chari made this awesome card--it uses the set, Trendy Trees with the To the Nines printed paper. Colors are Sahara Sand, CHocolate Chip,and Sage Shadow. The 1 1/4 and 1 3/8" square punches were used with the word window punch. A little chocolate ribbon and what a great card...change the colors for fall and have fun! :)
That's it for now...did you know it is the first day of fall...and my cards are fall themed? Ella wished me a happy fall...it is like a holiday when you are that age! :)
