Happy Harvesting

Yipeeeee! My second Whiff Of Joy sketch challenge. It's a little varied from Rach's sketch cause that darn mushroom is taller than I thought it would be. My camera is kaput right now so I scanned this card and I can't believe how much brigher the colors are. The pumpkins look red instead of orange but who knows, maybe somewhere in the world there are dark orange

A special thanks to
Rach for stopping by my blog and leaving such kind, sweet comments. Also, for the wonderful sketch challenge at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog.

The background on the card is done with dried marigold distressed ink by Tim Holtz. The stamps and cut outs are the fall collection by Elizabeth Bell from Whiff of Joy. In place of ribbon I used raffia for the bow. Copics were used for coloring. Sure wish they would host a copic certification class somewhere close. I love using them and would sure like to learn a LOT more on technique.

I'm off to try to get another sketch card done so I can post it before Wednesday. Didn't realize how much fun doing these sketches could be. It's sure a lot easier and faster than me trying to figure out something myself right now. If you haven't tried doing one yet, hop on over to the WOJ Challenge Blog and jump right in.

Thanks for stopping and I hope you come again soon.

Money Folder for Wedding Gift Box

Here is the money folder to go along with the wedding gift box from my post of July 16th as promised. It was just one of those things it took me awhile to figure out.
The folder is trifold and I've added lace with pearls as an accent to match what was used on the box. The bride and groom are from WOJs summer set and were masked and stamped. Copics were used for coloring and to give the dress that sheer glitz look I used Shimmerz and then painted Stickles on his vest for that "matched" look........ Flower soft was used for the bouquet and hair piece with small pearl embellishments added.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Sympathy Card for a Dear Family

Finally, I remembered to take pictures of a card before I mailed it. Just received some of my JustRite Stamps and couldn't wait to use them. It only took me all day yesterday to get this done but I put it in the envelope and mailed today.
Here are a list of the items I used for the card: JustRite Stamps from the Thinking of You set; Stampabilities stamp from my stash, Psalm 91.11; Spellbinders Labels 4, Labels 1. and Classic Scalloped Ovals Small; the paper is from Basic Grey Porcelain pad along with Bazilla Fuzzy and Olive; to color in the leaves on the stamp I used YG97 Copic marker; ribbon is Offray Simply Sheer Me Willow; flowers are from Prima; Cotton Candy Stickles to add that extra glitz.

The inside of the card is a note from us and the sentiment is from Stampabilities.

Have a wonderful weekend! I hope you come back soon.

Pip Delivers Presents

As promised, I'm back today with another Christmas card. I fell in love with Pip and just had to have him putting packages under the tree. The paper is from Hobby House. The tree is an Archiver's exclusive from 2008. I stamped in Olive and Forrest Green ink from SU and added red gems. For some reason I just got to have glitz and glimmer on
If you click on the picture to enlarge you can see the glitz a little better.

Pip was colored using Copics and I added texturized paint to his hat then finished off with Simmerz Pixie Dust after the paint had dried. Copic Spica pens were used to color the ribbon on the packages. I stamped the same image on patterened paper then cut out the packages and glued to Pip then cut out Pip and adhered him with a pop dot. The poinsettias on the front of the card are from my stash of last year and I have no idea where I got them. The brads for the poinsettias were covered with Stickles to give them more depth and bling.

I'm trying to get better about completing the inside of my cards so here is a picture of the inside of the card and another picture of the box envelope I made to go with the card.

I've had a terrible time trying to get these pictures in the right place GRRRRRRRRR and guess I'm going to have to spend more time trying to figure out how to get them placed throughout the post in the correct I hope you will bear with me while I am learning the ins and outs of blogging.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit and will come back soon.
