Many Thanks

Hello my friends and welcome back.  Today I have a fall card to share with you.

The first thing I did was stamp several images from the Happy Harvest stamp set from Lawn Fawn onto some Distress Watercolor Cardstock.  I painted the images with Distress Inks.


I then cut this panel with the largest die in the Blueprints 13 die-namics from MFT Stamps.  I also stamped a sentiment and cut that using one of the Slanted Sentiment Strips dies, also from MFT Stamps.  I popped up the cut panel onto an A2 card base with foam tape and glued the sentiment strip to the coloured panel to finish off the card.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Happy Harvest
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 13 and Slanted Sentiment Strips

Indie Chic "Citron"

I have just recently discovered Kristie Marcotte of The Best Things In Life Are Pink (her blog)  and YouTube.

She takes one 6x6 paper pad and using sketches, creates as many cards as she can until she is only left with a few scraps.  Since I have so many 6x6 paper pad, I thought this sounded like such a great idea, so I gave it a try.

For my first try I used the My Mind's Eye - Indie Chic "Citron" paper pad, Recollections card stock from Michaels, some dies from MFT Stamps and sentiments from lots of different stamp sets I already had in my stash.  The paper pad had been used slightly before I started this project and I really didn't plan ahead.  I looked for a sketch I liked and then created a few cards and then went and searched for another sketch for the next few cards. I managed to make a total of 33 cards over two days.



























The remaining six cards I made with the design paper scraps and did not use a sketch.


I hope you like what I have done and give it a try.  Also check out Kristie's videos, they're awesome.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Kathy

Fall

Hello my friends and welcome back.  I haven't been doing any crafting for the past week and a half because we have been redoing and organizing my craft room.  I hope to be back with some pictures of the transformation.

The first crafty thing I have done in the revamped space, was to alter the Standing Wood Fall word that I bought from Hobby Lobby for 40% off.  Each letter is approximately 7 inches high and 5 inches wide.  I love how the "A" in fall was real,aced with a leaf.


The first thing I did is go through my 12 x 12 design paper and decide which paper I would use for which letter.


I painted the three letters with some Vanilla acrylic paint and the leaf with Metallic Bronze acrylic paint.  I then added glue to the front of each letter and paid it down onto the design paper.  Once the glue had dried, I used a Fiskars fingertip craft knife to cut around the letters.  I then had to touch up the paint.  I decided that the leaf was going to be too hard to cut around so I just painted it with three coats of paint.  To finish off the three letters, I sponged on some Vintage Photo Distress Ink, to the edges of the design paper.

Here is the finished word, which I will be putting on my mantle, once I start decorating for fall.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Standing Wood Fall - Brother Sister Design Studio from Hobby Lobby
Acrylic Paint - Craft smart- Vanilla and Metallic Bronze from Michaels
Design Paper: American Crafts - Night Fall 12 x 12 paper pad
Ink: Vintage Photo Distress Ink

Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by.  I hope you have a wonderful day! Kathy
