Autumn in the "woods"

This was our club card for October! I really like it--it's very "me"! We embossed the Old Olive layer with the Big Shot and the Finial Press folder (115963). The leaves are cut with the Leaves #2 die (113459) from Stampin Up's fabulous Wood Sheets (116309) on page 158 of the catalog! After we die cut them, we stamped the leaves with the Sanded BG and then sponged on some more ink to give it a real "leaf" look!

The sentiment is from the Bright Blessings Jumbo Wheel (115626), which I cut up--gasp--and made into a stamp set! I'll show you that another day. {smile} It's a great way to get  a LOT of images for a low cost!

Hope your autumn day is lovely!

Lost in space . . .

I've been a little lost in space myself lately. Sorry about the spotty posts. Things are crazy, as they always are when you have 6 children. LOL And in the switch to a new computer, I'm having a bit of a problem transferring pics from my old hard drive!

This is my favorite swap card from Convention. It was something I had created in my head the moment I saw the set in the catalog, but I kept running out of time to actually make it! So the night before Convention, I sat down and made 10!

I used the Polished Stone technique on Glossy White cardstock to make the background. I used Night of Navy, Ballet Blue, Taken with Teal, and Bashful Blue. Then I stamped the aliens in Black Craft Ink and embossed them with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.

The sentiment is stamped in White Craft and embossed with II, so it will show up better on the black cardstock.


Stamps: Greetings Earthling
Paper: Whisper White, Glossy White, Basic Black, Night of Navy
Ink: Black Craft, White Craft
Accessories: Black Gingham ribbon, Iridescent Ice EP, Rubbing Alcohol, cotton balls
