For the Fall themed challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
This card was assembled from various bits and pieces from my Halloween craft box. I really have to get my supplies in better order as it has begun to put a damper on my creating, I can never find anything! If you have any organizational tips, I would love to hear. I've started by organizing things together by season but hope to refine that even more.
Have a beautiful day! Fall is in the air here, for sure. Crisp mornings and evenings and lovely color changes on the trees. Not too many leaf droppers in my yard which is sad for the beauty of it but great for less raking :)

Aren't these sentiments just lovely? One of my favorite things to put on a card is butterflies, I really love them. This set is called Kinda Sorta by The Project Bin.
I used vellum with an embossed butterfly folder, lots of Pretty In Pink, white embossing powder, a butterfly punch, sequins, and baker's twine and ribbon to embellish.

It would make some great valentines in addition to all occasion cards.
I used a retired Basic Grey designer paper collection. Sorry that I don't know the name of it, I often get rid of packaging to save space. I seem to remember Infuse, not 100 per cent sure. Stamped the tomatoes on a stitched heart die cut and the sentiment on a strip of the designer paper.

As paper crafters this beautiful sentiment says it all. Never underestimate the value of one of your handmade creations and how it will bring joy to someone's day!
This stamp (actually a set of three) from The Project Bin is called Keepsake. You can use it as a sentiment or add it to the back of your card creations. Don't forget to sign and date your cards for an extra special touch, it's a great way to keep track of special occasions.

For the first card- This pretty keeper of a sentiment from Stampin' Up! (Greetings of the Season) was embossed in silver. Festive Flurries stamps and SU paper and embellishments. The tag can also slide into the pocket but I brought it out so you could see the whole thing.

I love the new gnome holiday stamps from Craft Consortium called "It's Snome Time". This is my first attempt at the no line style of coloring, I almost always stamp the images in black. For this card I used Gina K amalgam ink in Warm Glow which works beautifully with Copic markers. I went over everything with the fine tip of Stampin' Up! markers to match and added some highlights with white acrylic paint and some glitter to the images.
Also for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

For the Jingle Belles Tag Challenge this week. I can't get enough tags, I make and send them in batches to my sisters since they have a lot of grandchildren. This elf is from Art Impressions and the present is cut out and attached to an action wobble so it shakes and jiggles. I'm sure we are all guilty of shaking a present or two! These wobbles are so much fun and an easy way to add a little something extra to a project. I bought a big bag of them on ebay a while back and really love them. See second picture for wobble works.

Love these little aliens peeping up over the dashboard! The set is called Milky Way from the Project Bin. I used some designer paper from Echo Park and accented the skies with glow in the dark Nuvo enamel drops. This little flying saucer is super easy to cut out with the coordinating die.

This was a fairly simple card that used a combination embossing/die cut folder (Sizzix) on white card stock. I stamped the turtle on the inside of the card and embellished with some pink sequins.
This darling set is called Merriest Christmas and the snowman and sentiments will warm your heart. A little something for everyone here. I used a designer paper for the background sky, some stitched white hill dies (Lawn Fawn), and the star (from Milky Way set) in silver. An easy card to create with the help of the coordinating dies.

Isn't this little space traveler the cutest? Lots os fun possibilities with this new set called "Milky Way" by The Project Bin.
I created a galactic background with glossy card stock and black, purple, and ultramarine brushos crystals and water. Stamped stars with silver craft ink. Using the Misti stamp positioner I colored the ufo in various markers, colored in saucer and alien with Copics.
Rainbow are always so cheery, don't you think? I used The Project Bin's adorable sentiment set Birthday Girl to make this card. Colored sentiment in with various markers to match the little striped paper in the background. Card base is white with Happy Birthday embossing folder. The sentiments here have been my favorite "go to" lately! Click here to see more in the catalog.
