Fall Leaves

I made this card for a Stamptv Guest DT challenge

For my technique I did an oldie but goodie. I love the "Polished Stone" technique. (Video here)
Since it is difficult to see the great stone detail in the leaves in the photo I placed another sheet I made under the leaf card. I used Versamark to stamp on my Polished Stone and embossed in gold and distressed walnut then fussy cut. I used Stazon to stamp the acorn and sentiment.
I made the leaf shaped card with my Cameo. I embossed the popped up leaf. GinaK ribbon and button.
Leaf stamps ansd sentiment from Autumn Splendor, acorn from a grab bag and not sure which set.

Heartfelt Creations

I made these cards for Heartfelt Creations DT call (fingers crossed:-))


Other products: Card stock from stash,  Tim Holtz watercolor paper, Tim Holtz Distressed ink (Victorian Velvet, Persimmon, Concord Grape, Peeled Paint and Pumice Stone), Stampendous white embossing powder, brads and lace bits

Make a 5X7  base of heavy card stock. Cover the front with 5X7 textured tan card stock and distress with Victorian Velvet ink.

Tear green DP leaving a few holes or dips and distressed with Victorian Velvet ink. Behind the rips add ribbon bits and DP.
For the focal image use watercolor paper. Masked the Sunkissed Fleur (HCPC 3533) stamp leaving the largest flower exposed. Ink with Versamark and emboss with white. Then Istamp the leaves and emboss in white as well.

Swipe the 3 purple Distressed inks onto craft mat and sprits with water. Using a paint brush drop in color randomly (they will blend on their own). For the leaves swipe a small amount of light green and dark, spritz with water, Drop light green into leaves, let dry and dab tiny bits of dark green. Before doing the background be sure the rest is dry first. Add Pumice Stone ink to your mat and spritz with water. Paint along the flower edges pulling out to card edge to fade. Add around leaves. Add more water to blend the edges. Add a dark purple layer of DP and distress it to mat the focal image.


Other Products: DSR Stained Glass stamp, Pure Luxury card stock, Secret Garden DP, vellum, embellishments.
Heartfelt Creations Sunkissed Fleur (HCPC 3533)
Heartfelt Creations Open Leaf (HCPC 3545)
Card stock and DP from stash

Stained Glass - Stamp the flower  (HCPC 3533) with Versamark and embossed it in silver. Cover the flower stamp  (HCPC 3533) with a mask then stamp the stained glass stamp with versa marked and embossed with silver.

Color the flower and stained glass (I used Copics). Covered the entire oval with Crystal 3D laquer.

Stamp the flower and cut out and color 6 pieces. Shape and stack 3 pieces for each flower and add a center embellishment.

4.25 X 5.5 lilac card base, 4 X 5.25 purple and white DP with a piece of green and white DP behind the glass. Cover the entire piece of both DP with velum (add glue mostly to the center where the glass will cover it and behind the area for flowers so it doesn’t show through). Adher the stained glass on the top. Add a resin birdhouse and the flowers.

Party Decorations

Well I made my first decorations with my Cameo for my granddaughters 3rd birthday. We had the party in the park so nothing fancy.

Cupcake wrappers

I think my daughter ruined them by adding those picks! LOL

The Birthday Hat

Of course we all had to wear one

The birthday girl

 Tinkerbell floating over the table. Addison informed me her sister Periwinkle was missing LOL. She is on a cupcake but she wants a big one. I will make one for her room. The sister movie is her favorite.
