Thanksgiving Cards

Hello, and welcome to September!  Ready for fall weather...I had a request for some Thanksgiving cards, and this is what I made.  The first one, I think I saw on Pinterest. But its gorgeous.  I may add some gold embossed speckle on top, just an idea.  The second one, I conjured up, and I embossed the bucket and the give thanks in copper.  That makes it pop.  Hope you enjoy them.  Thanks for visiting.

Wedding Bling

Happy Saturday to all.  My sister wanted some wedding cards made with some "Bling", so I used the July Paper Pumpkin gems, and embossed them in gold, silver, and dazzling diamonds.  and embossed the jar too.  Add a dazzling bow, and you're done.  Let me know what you think.  the flowers on the left are in progress., I will show them later.  They are just simply embossed in white on vellum and I sponge color on the back and fussy cut them out.  What do you think?  Thanks for visiting me today.  Carol Smith

More Casing goin' on :)

So is everyone staying cool?  Whew!!!!  More reason to stay indoors and play with stamps, right?  Well the first one today is cased, I believe by Robbie Rubala.  Thanks, Robbie :)  I made several color choices for different occasions.  The other ones were just dabbling, but the one embossed in the new copper I just couldn't get my coloring even.  Hope you enjoy them.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

Fine-tip glue pen creations

These cards were really fun to  make.  I first stamped the blossoms all over white cardstock.  They sat on my table for some time.  Didn't know what to do with them.  I finally decided I would cover all the images with the fine-tip glue pen and let it dry overnight.  Then I sponged color on over that, all in different colors, which gave them different personalities.  Lost lagoon, peach and plum.  I had salutations and the flower from birthday blooms, so I colored the flower in with some rich razzleberry, which goes really well with the plum.  then I covered that with the glue pen.  They came together nice, and I added different elements to each one.  Let me know how you feel.  thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith  ps- I fussy cut the flower and put that on top.

I am spending more time in my craft room of late, and I put together some cards from things that were laying on my work table.  I had no ideas for them, they just kinda put themselves together.  the flowers I had made with vellum, embossed in white, and I spied them and sponged color on the backs.  Added the lace, and the sentiments.  How do you like them?  Thanks for visiting again.   Carol Smith


Are you surviving the heat?  I suppose we should be used to it, so I try to stay indoors and play with my stamps.These are cased from the "Everything" stamp set that was free in the past paper pumpkin kit.    I just changed the coloring.  Input appreciated.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

More flowered cards

Happy Tuesday to you everyone!  The first cards are cased, I can't remember who to credit.  I just loved them.  Hope you do too.  The basket I was just playing with to see how it colored up.. Pretty delicate, but the end result it very pretty.  Hope you are inspired by them as I was.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol smith
