Time for Fall

Fall is here and I am enjoying the cooler nights! I made this card for my Mom and Aunt. This is celebrate the changing seasons, I used Rubbernecker leaves stamps, Distress reinkers on cut and dry pad to get these wonderful leaves, background is Distess reinkers with Perfect pearls. Also, Tim Holtz postmark stamp, this was so much fun I had to share with my friends!

Hope you enjoy your Fall weather where ever you happen to be.

My friend Yuki,decided to host a swap for angels and friends. I love to swap. We had to do a card front idea using the new stamps that came out in July. Loving the new vintage stamps, I jumped in and started creating. Well, my creating takes a long time to do. I knew my mom would love to have a vintage card, with that in mind it made it easier to come up with the colors and design. She just received this card for her birthday this week. Happy Birthday Mom!  I love you, hope your birthday was extra special.
For the Vintage Fairy, I used Twinkling H2O's to color her wings and coat. The background was done using misters and Tim Holtz distress inks and Perfect pearls.  I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks to age the beads. This is a cool effect to age anything. Hope you like the card swap!

Collage class at the Calligraphy Guild

This was very intimidating at first, just having to come up with all the inchies to make this collage, but as you start to create it in class, you see everyone is in the same box. So, first you have a grid on watercolor paper, that helps you to get it in line, but you have to number your squares just in case you want to make any changes before you glue them down!  Some of the supplies are, paint markers, gel pens, acrylic dabbers. stamps, punches, metal foil, embossing folders, pattern and solid cardstock, and your inspiration! Really, there is no set way to do this, so many mediums were used in making the collages. I had so much fun and did not even know what I was doing to get there....sorry this is a side view, could not get it right side up!
