Ellie Loves Sunflowers

For an autumn project I've chosen a stamp from Your Next Stamp (YNS) called P1010772 copy"Ellie Loves Sunflowers".  Materials used:  Xpress It Blend Cardstock, Ranger Archival Ink, Copic Markers, Flower Soft, 3D Frame from Flower Soft, Acetate for window, Pop Dots, Large Flatback Pearls (Colored with Copic Markers); Cardstock from stash.  All of the above items are available from One Crazy Stampe.

(Note:  I really struggled with this blog entry, (big time), only to find that my computer had a ton of "infractions" on it - All fixed now - (big sigh of relief).

Silver Fairy in pink

Hi all, for another WET Wonderful Wednesday.  I think the skies have opened up and dumped our allotted maximum rainfall for the last 4 months all in one day.  Better wet than white though~!!P1010762
’ve chosen a Whimsy Stamp called “Silver Fairy” but decided to pretty her up with pink.  To start with, the image was stamped onto Xpress It Blend cardstock, colored, fussy cut out, mounted onto a transparency.  I cut a frame from the cardbase using Cherry Cobbler and mounted the transparency onto the inside of the frame.  The inside of the base was matted in Yellow and a Pink DSP.  Flowers and leaves were added to the outside frame to add some dimension.  The “For You” was adhered to the inside mat.  P1010769 
We left home very rushed, and I only packed a few things to complete this card.  You will have to excuse the poor photography, as I only have my camera and the lighting is not the best.
Til Next Time.

Fall is in the Air

Fall is definitely in the air in our neck of the woods.  There is that crispness about the temperature.  For my project for OCS, I've chosen to use the YNS stamp "Ellie loves walking  her dog"  and the fence / grass from High Hopes' Garden Gate Background. Both images were stamped onto XPress-It Blend Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and then colored with P1010696 copyCopic Markers
I chose DP from Basic Grey's Pyrus Collection, with the rich warm colors of Autumn. 
This month's challenge at OCS is under way with a "Clear or Transparent" challenge for all of you.  Go to the OCS DT blog and scroll down to add your creation.  Hope to see you there!!siggyhaycock
