White on White

I was away in Halifax for a course for work this past weekend and was able to also attend a Card Class at Carsand Mosher in Bayers Lake.  They are cards which are made using the monochromatic theme of white on white.  I love how these cards turned out.  We used several Sizzix dies as well as DSP and white embossing powder by Ranger with ribbon and different stamp sets.  It was great fun and a much needed break from my course!!!  :o)

Grateful for You

This is a Thanksgiving Day Card I made using a similar layout as a previous Autumn Card.  This time I used a white paper doily in the background and sponged it with Momento Dye Ink - Desert Sand and Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up.  I then cut out the leaves from Stampin' Up Autumn Meadows (2009 Fall collection) with my Cuttlebug and then embossed the leaves wtih a leaf embossing folder.  The Sentiment is stamped with the Desert Sand Ink using a stamp from the Stampin' Up Dotted Autumn Stamp set.  I added a scalloped piece of DSP using the Stampin' Up Scallop Edged Punch and added twine for my bow. I also used Chocolate Brown Bazzill Cardstock as the base for one of the leaves as a contrast.

Grateful for You

This is a card I made for the lady who has me for a Secret Sister.  I am truly thankful for her prayers....Knowing she is praying for me each day is a wonderful blessing!!!

Mojo Monday 209

This is my card for a very special lady for Thanksgiving and it is also my card for the Mojo Monday 209 Sketch Challenge.  I love this DSP from Stampin' Up, Springtime Vintage.  I also used beige cardstock to stamp the flower from Stampin' Up called Triple Treat Flower which I stamped on the DSP and then cut out the layers and popped them with a rose from Stampin' Up Vintage Flowers Adornments.  The ribbon is from Walmart and I use the Stampin' Up corner punch and scallop punch.  The cardbase is green Bazzill Cardstock.

World Card Making Day - Grateful For You

This is my Autumn Flavoured Card giving thanks for a special friend.  I am also using this card as my creation for the MOJO Monday 208 Sketch Challenge.  I have added some bling although it is hard to see.  Also used the green vine felt for texture.  The leaves have been punched and then embossed with the exception of the Sentiment leaf which has been stamped from the Dotted Autumn Stamp Set from Stampin' Up.  The background paper is a random of piece of paper from the Great Canadian Store and I used brown Bazzil embossed paper for the cardstock base and mats for the leaves.  The corners were punched using a Fiskars Fall Leaves Corner Punch.

This is another Grateful For You card which turned out rather monochromatic, with the exception of the Sentiment.  The Sentiment was stamped using a stamp from the Dotted Autumn Stamp Set from Stampin' Up using Pumpkin Pie Ink from SU.  The background paper is DSP from Stampin Up (2009), with a Doily purchased locally.  I added Leaves which have been punched out and some of them have been embossed along with some jute for the ribbon.  I actually really like these colours together!!!
