Wetlands Goose Birthday Card

The Stampin' Up!  Wetlands stamp set is a great stamp set to create fall cards and masculine cards with.

Check out other wildlife cards on this weeks Paper Players weekly challenge.

I really like finding ways to use the birch paper that came in the Thanksgiving tablescape kit. Doesn't it look great with the goose stamp?

Other products I used:
Early Espresso card stock
Basic White card stock
Early Espresso ink
Label Framelits
wood grain embossing folder

Feel Goods Greeting Card

Encouragement card, Stamp with Trude, Stampin' Up!, Feel Goods, Mojo Monday

I used another Mojo Monday layout for this Stampin' Up! card. This stamp set (Feel Goods) has some fun sayings and right now I am trying to get every last ray of sunshine before it is gone. Sometimes it seems as though Oregon has 9 months of rain. We have already seen some gully washers in the last couple of weeks.

I also used Designer Series Paper (Quatrefancy) and a framelit to die cut the sentiment (Deco Labels Collection).

I hope wherever you are you are staying dry! Enjoy the sunshine while it last, winter is coming.

Fall Banner

Fall, Banner, Stamp with Trude, Stampin' Up!, Top Note
I used the Top Note Big Shot die to cut out the bases for the fall banner. Then I used the Stripes embossing folder to add some dimension. I inked the edges with Soft Suede ink using a sponge dauber. The circle uses Sweater Weather Designer series paper and is matted with Pumpkin Pie card stock.

I cut the letters with a Cricut (Storybook set at 2").

The pumpkins were created with an oval punch and a circle punch. I used the Magnificent maple stamp inked with Pear Pizazz and Crushed Curry inks. The owl was created with Stampin' Up!s owl builder punch.

The twine was left over from Stampin' Up's! Christmas banner kit, but you can purchase twine from any craft store or garden store.

I would love to be your demonstrator!
Thank you for your continued patronage.

Have a lovely day,

Prince of Peace Christmas Card

When I saw this stamp from Stampin' Up! I knew that I had to have it. So here is my first creation using the stamp. I used a Mojo Monday sketch from 2010 as a guide for my layout.
