Inlaid Leaf Border Card

Thanks for stopping by. Today I am doing another fall themed card. It really started out as a way to use up scraps from my previous two cards but turned into a really fun project. I used a border die from Poppy Stamps to cut out a leaf border along a layering piece. Then I popped the layer up on a "generous" number of pop dots. Next, I inlaid some fall colored leaves that were cut using the same die. Wow! what a cute card and the best part is, it only took a few minutes to assemble and used up some of those bits and pieces of paper that were lying about. Hope you give this technique a try.

Happy Stamping,

Embossed Background Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am having fun experimenting with dry embossing to add texture and dimension to a card. I will be using an embossing folder (and my trusty Sizzix Big Shot) as well as a scoring board to make and easy and interesting Autumn card.

Happy Scrapping,

Popsicle Card

I just  realized that never posted my Popsicle card. It is a quick end of summer card that I just couldn't resist sharing. It is also another great way to use the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch. This card would work great for a kid's party invitation, thank you, or and invitation to a summer get together. It is amazingly easy to make and cold be a great family project.

Autumn Wreath Card

I love, love, love fall! I like the fact that it is getting a bit cooler, I also love the beautiful fall flowers and the changing leaves. I was so excited to play with my new Autumn Wreath die from Die-namics that I could hardly stand it. This die makes it fun and easy to create stunning Autumn cards. Today I am posting a video tutorial on how I created my card but I understand that many of you won't have this die at home. That is why I have included information on how you could achieve a similar effect without this adorable little die set.

Happy Scrapping,
