It's Been Far Too Long...



Bye, Bye Summer...Hello Fall
It appears we have finally made it to Fall weather after a very hot week last week.  I wanted to share one last Summery card before moving into the holidays.  

Jen Carter Sorry Grateful Florals 1

For this card I started by stamping the leaf background with VersaMark ink all over the blue card base using a stamp from the lovely Grateful Florals stamp set.  I then die cut the flowers with the Grateful Florals Outlines Dies and stamped & then embossed the images with black embossing powder. I colored with copic markers.  I also embossed the sentiment from the Sorry stamp set.  I love that large sorry!

Thank you for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Fall Greetings


Last night I was in the mood to create a Fall card.  I'm not sure why because it is HOT here in Kansas this week (mid 90's!). I started looking through my supplies and ended up pulling out the new Tilly's Magic Garden from Catherine Pooler.

I die cut the tag from a die set called Lovely Flowers & Banners Dies.  I love the size & shape of that tag (not to mention all of the other fun accessories in the die set).  I then took out the vibrant inks (have you checked these out yet because if not, you won't be disappointed!!) Tiara, Orange Twist, Tutti Frutti, Rockin' Red, Lime Rickey, Fiesta Blue, All That Jazz (coming soon), Pixie Dust & Icing on the Cake.  I stamped the flowers with the Tilly's Magic Garden stamp set.  I die cut the gorgeous Hello Die from Catherine's new Midnight Black cardstock and then added some black sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  For the dotted background, I used a stamp block from the Lovely Flowers Stamp Set and stamped it several times in a row which was quick and easy to do.

I think I created a fall-like card as a way to celebrate a cooler forecast for next week! :)

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Too Cute to Spook


A Haunting We Will Go
The newest Lil' Inker Designs release included an adorable stamp set with animals dressed up in costumes.  Seriously. Cute.

Jen Carter A Haunting Go Too Cute 1

To make this card I started by stamping the Trick or Treat sentiment from the A Haunting We Will Go stamp set over and over on the purple cardstock.  I then die cut a window using one of the Stitched Mats: Dual Stitched Square Dies.  I love that this leaves stitches around the window. Behind the window I backed it with striped pattern paper.  Next I cut the Spiderweb Greeting Die from white glitter paper and layered it on top.  I die cut the animals with the A Haunting We Will Go die set, stamped them and then colored them with copics.  I adhered them with dimensional tape to the window.  Last, I stamped the sentiment on a small white piece of carstock, also from the A Haunting We Will Go stamp setand adhered with dimensional tape.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Layered Snowflakes


Snowflake Layering Dies
The September Frantic Stamper release includes the coolest snowflake dies.  They are designed to work by themselves or you can stack them on top of each other for several different results. You can see the dies here: Chamonix Snowflakes, Luchon Snowflake & Courchevel Snowflake.

Jen Carter Layered Noel Snowflakes 2

For this card I started with the background by stamping the Gingham Background Stamp with Versamark ink onto the gray card base.  Then I chose three colors of blue cardstock and cut each snowflake with different colors and started layering them together.  I die cut the beautiful Layering Noel and used one of the three cuts that the die set makes.  I used a few of the star snowflakes from the center of the snowflakes as accent pieces.
