With Love and Thanks ~ Colour Throwdown

 

Hello friends!  I'm back with a quick card for this week's Colour Throwdown Challenge.  I am a reluctant lover of Fall but I sure do love the colours and warm cozy clothes this time of year.  I'm using some old PTI dies and stamps along with an old Reverse Confetti tag die and my new Simon Says Stamp stitched maple leaves :)  Thanks for dropping by...hope you are having a fantastic day!

Happy weekend friends!  I'm back today with a Fall card for the latest Colour Throwdown challenge.  We have a neutral pallet today and some new dies that just arrived Friday!  The Honeybee wreath die and Simon Says stitched maple leaves.  This card was inspired by Debbie Hughes this summer in the Online Card Class Crushing Cardstock.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sincere Gratitude ~ Colour Throwdown Challenge

 


Happy Sunday everyone!  I'm back with another card for the Colour Throwdown Challenge.  I'm loving my new sentiment set from Reverse Confetti.  This card will be going to the lovely owners of the Pumpkin Patch where I take my class each fall.  I always add a little pumpkin, sumthin' to their cards :)  I hope you can carve (pun intended!) out a bit of time for yourself today...thanks for stopping by :)

Happy Fall Birthday ~ Stock Your Stash Challenge


Hello friends!  I am happy to report that I have my new class and they are just the sweetest!  I can't wait to really get to know them...that's when the magic happens...when you have a good solid relationship with them.  This card has been waiting on my desk all week.  I had die cut and stamped the flowers and shapes last Monday, but didn't have the energy to adhere everything together.  But this morning, with my coffee, I went back down to the studio and finished it off.  This is for the Stock Your Stash Challenge.  We are asked to make a Fall/Halloween themed card.  Well, I chose Fall colours and will be sending this to a friend with a Fall Birthday :)  Now, I have to tell you that this is a very close CASE to this GORGEOUS CARD I've been saving on my Card Pinterest board.  If you look at the date, it's from 2014!  I saved it because I love the way Tara stamped and stacked the Reverse Confetti flowers.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!  The first weekend of the year for a teacher is one of the sweetest!

Sent with Lots of Love ~ Colour Throwdown Challenge

Greetings friends!  I am back today with a card for the Colour Throwdown Challenge.  These colours made me think of foliage and a serene sentiment.  I received my order from Simon Says Stamp this week and got some new patterned papers and this lovely Reverse Confetti sentiment set.  LOVE the scripty font on this one!  It's my last day of summer vacation and a beautiful sunny day :)  I'm trying to spend time doing some things that I love and happily spending time in the studio is one of them.  Hope your week is starting out well.  Happy Back to School if that applies to you :)  ox

Teachers Live Forever ~ Colour Throw Down

 

Happy Sunday, friends!  It's been a lovely morning in the studio creating one of my favourite genres of cards ~ teacher cards!  I head back to my classroom tomorrow to start setting up for the new school year that begins on September 7th here in BC.  My colours are inspired by the Colour Throw Down challenge.  I turned to my trusty apple dies from Spellbinders that I found at HomeSense years ago...it was one of the best finds EVER!!  Seriously, $7.99 CAD for these adorable dies!


 Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day :)

Crushing on Card Stock ~ Day 4

 

Hello!  I'm back today with a card from the last day on my Online Card Class, Crushing on Cardstock.  I love the fall feel of this card.  So what did I do to the card stock?  I used a floral stencil with gesso on the light grey cardstock to give extra texture and also used glitter card stock for some shine.  I had to laugh at my little dew drops.  They are from The Robin's Nest back in the day (10 - 15 years ago?).  I kept them over the years and they come and go on cards.  Apparently, they are back in, maybe they never went away (only I did! lol).  Thanks for stopping by!  Hope your weekend is going well :)
