The other piece on the background is a piece of Gold Mirror Cardstock and embossed with the Inspire Embossing Folder

Stay Wild Fall Any Occasion Card

Here is the second of 3 cards for my November Card Class. 

This was such a fun card to make. I used the FSJ Barn Wall Embossing Folder with Hazelnut Cardstock for the background. The Base Card is Butter Cream Cardstock

The oval with the image was created with my Gel Press and Liquid Colors. I love the FSJ Gel Press becasue the size is 8.5" X 11" so you can do a whole sheet of cardstock at the same time. FSJ also has an awesome 6" brayer that perfect for this Gel Press. 

After adding the colors you want for the background, I stamped the Stay Wild Stamp with Dark Roast Ink. I used my Misti for this so I could stamp it twice for a darker look. I then embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder to make it POP. 

I used Journey Ovals Die and Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Oval Large Dies
I cut out the Pine Sprigs from the Branch and Cones Die in Kiwi CS, The Cones in Oatmeal Cookie and backed it with Hazelnut Blend and cut it out.
The leaves are Cut from the Pretty Leaves Die Set in Citrus Cooler and Pumpkin Bread Cardstock

Now, just put it all together and add a Pumpkin Patch Ribbon Bow.

The images were stamped using Clear Pigment Ink and Heat Embossed with Gold Fine Detail Embossing Powder.

Here is the third card from my October Card Class. 

This card was made using the FSJ Gnome for the Holiday Stamp Set.

Have a Spooktacular Halloween

Here is the second card of three that my card class made this month. I feel like I am so behind again this year. 

I just love this new Die Set from the FSJ Holiday Mini. There is this House, a Tree, Pumpkin and Bat. I only used the house from this set. The Bat is from the Snapshop Frames, the Pumpkin is from Jack O Lanterns, and the Ghost is from Party Ghost
The Sentiment is from a retired Mummy ATS. 

The background was made using then Trees from the Designer Series Stencils. I used the purple and gray from the Mother Nature Pan Pastels and sponged over the stencil.

Happy Friendsgiving - Gnome for the Holidays

Back from our vacation and ready to Rock and Roll towards Holiday Creations!

Hubby and I were on a Fall Foliage Cruise and had the pleasure off being seated at a Dinner Table with two fantastic couples for the entire 21 days. 

Fun Stampers Journey has this Adorable Stamp Set, called Gnome for the Holidays. The Traditional use would be for Christmas Cards. BUT, I made it into a Thanksgiving card for our Table Mates. Instead of Happy Thanksgiving, it says, Happy Friendsgiving, from the Gather Together Stamp Set. Can't wait to send it to them!

It's also going to be one of my three October Class Cards. 

The background was made using the Changing Seasons Embossing Folder on Sweet Pear Cardstock. I then used the Rose Gold Pan Pastels over the top of the leaves.   The Brown Circle in the middle was done using the Barn Wall Embossing Folder. 

The Pumpkins at the bottom are from the Happy Harvest Stamp Set.

Thankful Friends Fox Thanksgiving Card.

Today I'm posting one of the three cards my August Hostess Club made. 

I first inked up the smooth Side of the Barn Wall Embossing Folder with Pumpkin Bread Fusion Ink Pad. Then added a piece of the Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock and ran it though my amaze machine. 

To make the ombre look to the fox, I inked the top part with Tangerine Fusion Reinker on a large Dauber Dowel, then Rich Coral Reinker to another Dauber Dowel and inked lower half of Fox. 

The acorn was inked with Dark Roast in for the top and Pumpkin bread for the bottom. 

The leaves were cut using the leaf die from the Snapshot Frames in Oatmeal Cookie, edges inked with Green Olive ink, then Rich Coral and Tangerine fusion Cardstock. 

When assembling, I added a strip of Corrugated Cardstock under the fox.

Party Ghosts Halloween Card

Here is the second of three cards for my July card class. The post before this one uses the Film Capture Die and this card uses the three rectangles from the inside of the film Strip. No wasted Cardstock here.

The Background used the Spooky Bold Embossing Folder. Then I lightly swiped the Whip Cream Pigment Ink across the raised embossing. I wanted it to look a little smeared and spooky.

Silver Silk and Sparkle Silk was splattered over the background and sentiment .

All of the Ghosts and mummy are stamped with black ink and fussy cut out then adhered with foam tape. 

Let's Party and Trick or Treat are heat embossed with the white ink and white embossing powder.

Jack O Lanterns Halloween Card

Here is my first card for my July Card Class. 

While most people are doing Christmas in July, I wanted to get Halloween out of the way to make room for the Fabulous NEW FSJ Christmas stamps in the Holiday Mini which will go live on August 1st. 
So, I will be doing Christmas in August!!!

Isn't this such a Fun Card. Love this stamp set. 

My card tomorrow, uses the three black rectangles left over after cutting out the Film Capture Die.
