Seasonally Scattered Thanks

The stamp from Seasonally Scattered (SU) was stamped in Fresh Fig (SU), heat embossed, then the letering was masked and the background brushed with daffodil yellow and tangelo twist (SU). The cards are finished with rhinestones, stickles and a satin bow. the sentiment stamp is from Elle Avery "Sentimental" (ST-16-01)

Autumn Sprite Note Card

The adorable Autumn Sprite is colored in Prismacolor Pencils and mounted on SU Watermelon Wonder Paper with matching accent bow.  She is finished with stickles, wink of stella and enamel dots.  The stitched rectangle die cuts are Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Rectangles. This will probably become a Thank You note, but I haven't put any sentiment on the cardfront.

Merry Christmas Winter's Frost

I have done a number of cards similar to this, but this one really pleased me. It is a winter photo background created by Karen Schulz in her kit "Winters Frost" touched with several kinds of snow-and glitter snow paste, mounted on glitter paper. The deer are cut from the  Jumping Deer Trio (Poppy Stamps) out of the same white glitter paper.  The black heat-embossed sentiment banners are Holiday Swoosh by Papertrey Ink.

Luck in 2018

This stand up card was inspired by Kelly Atchison at Splitcoast Stampers.  I used DP by SU and glitter paper to cut out the horseshoe from Cherry Lynn's Arizona Cowboy dieset.  The calendars were purchased through Amazon and the stamp is from SU Occasions Alphabet.

Sprinkle the Dust

For this delicate card created in spritz-bleached distress ink on 140# watercolor paper.  I used the Dandelion Stem, and Posing and River Faeries dies all by Poppystamps. Fairies are cut from silver fine glitter paper and the dandelion stem from shiny white photo paper, embedded in the background. As always the glimmer and glittery delicacy of this card does not show in a photograph.  Glitter I used was fine glitter "sugar cube" by Martha Stewart. The sentiment reads "Wave the wand and sprinkle the dust.  Make a Wish, in Fairies we trust!

Acetate gift box card

 I had a lot of fun figuring out how to do this after I saw someone's technique video online a couple of weeks ago!   This card is made with some background paper I created in Photoshop, some black embossed and watercolor inked leaves (Ksaleidacolor Autumn Leaves) from Gina K Stitched Leaves Mini kit.  The 2"square acetate box is from SU filled with any color raffia or shredded paper, or lined with designer paper.  The Bow was created with 123 bowmaker punch board by We R Memory Keepers,  and is easily removable as it sits on the double base of this top fold card.  The sentiment is from the same Stitched Leaves Mini kit and die and is triple layered for dimension.

Thinking of you Get Well Card for my friend Barbara

The brown cardstock is embossed with a Darice autumn leaves folder,  the borders are copper stickers around the artpiece and the orange mat.  She is colored in prismacolor pencils and I am pretty sure she is a Sherrie Baldy graphic, but I can't find the original now to see how I labeled it before I printed it for this card.
The inside sentiment reads:  "I wanted to write something cheery and fun on this "Get Well Soon Card" for you.  But theere's nothing cheery or fun about shoulders getting replaced.  So here's all our support!  We're hoping you heal quickly and that the road to recovery is short and sweet (or long and cruisy, if you prefer)".
