Happy Fall Y'all

Hello there, Thanks for stopping in today!!!

The new challenge at Creative Moments has started today. It runs 'til August 5 and the theme is always Anything Goes. Hope you can join in the fun, You never know you could be the next winner!!

Since you stopped in, I thought I'd share my inspiration project with you all, today.  

The sponsor is Cute As A Button and their digi's are so cute!!!  

I know, we are all probably sweltering under the heat, however I decided to use a darling image raking leaves. I already had this cutie in my stash.  Hopefully this fall scene will help cool you off a little. (LOL) You know, fall will be here in the blink of an eye, so to speak. 

Here is what I made 

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, and Memento inks. Punched out different leaf shapes and die cut my little pumpkins and fence. 

Hope this card cooled you off a little. LOL

BTW, being that I am from KY......... Y'all is an accepted word in our vocabulary. LOL

It's Your Happy Day

 Hello and TGIF.(I know, Friday is almost over, as I post this)

Another week almost over and a new month starts next week. Geez, where have I been!! Six months til Christmas, the time is screaming by. I guess I better start getting my Christmas cards ready. Otherwise I will be behind the eight-ball. LOL

Well I have another card using my Heartfelt Creations Clematis stamps/dies/molds. I think this will be the last Clematis card for a while. I have some new butterfly stamps coming next week. And who doesn't like butterflies!!

I was looking in a stamping mag and saw this card style and thought the Clematis stamps might look great in this card design. This card was called a Braced Aperture Card in the magazine but it's also known as a tent fold card. 

Lets take a peek at my finished card!!

Side view

This card does not open up, so any message you might want to add along with your signature,  will have to go on the back of the card. I added a brace to the bottom of the card. It gives the card the ability to stand open and it doesn't sag.(You can see that brace in the 2nd pic) I made a lattice background from scraps of CS and attached it to the inside back of the card. I stamped and colored the birdhouse, the individual blooms, the birds and the viny leaves, ran the blooms and the leaves thru their individual molds and attached the images onto the lattice. The images are on the inside and the front of the card, and since there is a circle cutout on the front, the scene is always able to be seen and looks very dimensional. 

I added a holographic frame to the circle to draw your eye to the circle and the scene inside the circle.

For a Faithful Friend

Hey There!!! Hello everyone,

Hope your week has been good to you so far and hope your weekend will be a fun one.

I want to share with you a cool card. It's a triple tier slider card. And I used some scraps that were sitting on my desk.

I used some Heartfelt Creations Clematis Blooms and I also used the trellis image that is on one of the paper sheets in their paper pack. This card has a WOW factor (IMHO) and I hope you enjoy this card. 

Here is the card closed

and here is the card, opened

I love the Clematis Blooms collection and it seemed to be a great fit for a slider card. 

Oh BTW, I used the Heartfelt Creations leafy accents stamps and die and mold. I think those leaves are the perfect size for my blooms.
