Farm Window

 I have an Art Impressions Windows to the World card to share with you today, in wonderful fall tones.  Here is Farm Window (Sku # M3180):
 I have sort of a "mottled" (non-blended) style of colouring with Copic markers, which I think worked fairly well with this image, as it gives more of a textured look to the grass and foliage.  It's also a quicker way to colour - so this card came together in no time!  I love plaids that are on the diagonal, and they worked well with the square image.  I used a couple of stitched dies to cut out the image and a small banner.
Happy Stamping!
Copics used: Greens - YG95, YG93, YG91, YG03, YG01, YG00
Oranges - YR18, YR07, YR04, YR02, Y11
Reds - E18, E07, E41
Blues - B93, B91
Greys - W3, W1
Browns - E47, E44, E43, E41, E57, E55, E53

Watercolour Birthday

It was my Mother-In-Law's 89th birthday yesterday, and I thought she would enjoy a pretty watercoloured card.  I had painted my scene a little while ago using the Art Impressions Watercolour stamps and my Tombow & Marvy markers.  I used WC Series 7 Set 2 (Sku # 3545), along with a few of the flower and foliage stamps, and Verve's Happy Thoughts for the sentiment.  The papers are ancient ones from Close To My Heart!

Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Time for my favourite card making event of the season!  It's the 2017 Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  I'm working on a set of coffee themed cards as a gift, so here is the first one that I'm sharing:
I used Freshly Brewed by Tim Holtz along with Coffee and the Coffee word die from Verve, and some old CTMH papers that I love.  I'll be back with the second one tomorrow!  Happy hopping :o)

Freshly Made Sketches #305

A quick Christmas card tonight - I love the new Freshly Made Sketch, so many ways to interpret it!  I used some new (to me!) Echo Park papers and an old CTMH stamp... along with my new stitched snowflake dies from Memory Box, which I've been dying to use:

Happy Fall

 It's September already!  And while I never want to wish away the summer... I adore the fall!  And a new season always means a fresh new crafting theme - warm, rustic colours and fall themed papers!  I was inspired to make a card with this sweet scarecrow from Art Impressions - the set is called Happy Fall Set (Sku #4525):
 I stamped him and the sentiment on some cream card stock, then coloured the image with my Copic markers.  I used some stitched dies to cut them out, then mounted the image with an off-kilter patterned square underneath.  I matted the sentiment and adhered it with pop dots.
 I hope you pull out those fall papers and get working on some warm, rustic projects, too!  Our current challenge is Off Kilter!  We want to see your angled panels - hope you can join us.
Copics used: Browns - E47, E44, E43, E41, E40, E57, E55, E53, E51, E18, E15, E13, E00

Freshly Made Sketches #304

Can you tell that I'm on vacation??  Three posts in a week - it's heavenly to have some cardmaking time that is simply for me, so I decided to play along with this week's Freshly Made Sketch, and made a birthday card for my sister.  I used the gorgeous Heart of Home papers by Jen Hadfield (love these colours!) along with a background flower from Verve's Simply Amazing set that I coloured with pink Tombow markers and spritzed with water before stamping on my circle.  I overstamped the flower with a Close To My Heart sentiment.  A little stitching in a soft grey thread, some sequins and done.
