Autumn Leaves Thank You Card

 Hello everyone!  I am back with a design team post!  I had a productive time making cards the other day and this one was my absolute favorite of the bunch!

I frequently just make backgrounds so that I just about always have things to start from.  For this card, I decided to stamp the leaf on two watercolored backgrounds.  One was a plain green, and the other was brusho sepia.  After I fussy cut these, I sponged some Tea Dye Distress ink around the edges to add depth. I also used tool to curl up the edges of the leaf.  

Then I stamped this lovely flourished Thank You and die cut it.  I masked off the frame of the die cut and then stamped the little thicket stamp over top in a very light beige ink, and I also sponged over the edges with Speckled Egg Distress ink.  I really liked how that turned out.  

The stamps I used here are from Blank Page Muse.  I have a code that will give you 15% off your BPM order, OR at the sister store I Brake for Stamps.

Be One With Nature

 Hello!  I have another design team post for sister stores Blank Page Muse and I Brake for Stamps.

Today I would like to share a nature themed card. 

This card using stamps and a stencil from the Woodlands Stamp and Stencil bundle designed by Donna Gray.  You can use my affiliate code BPMHeidi to save 15% at both stores.

I first stenciled over top of some patterned paper using brown Distress inks.  This piece of 12x12 patterned paper is super duper duper old.  I recently cut it up into card size pieces in an effort to use it up.  

Then I stamped my tree right over top. I used all Versafine inks for the stamping here.  I stamped, color and fussy cut out the owl and placed him near the tree. I really like the sentiments in this set. I think a walk in the woods is really great therapy.

I hope you have a wonderful day, less stress, craft more…

Floral Birthday Card - Coloring on Vellum

 Hello everyone!  

I’m back with another design team post for the I Brake for Stamps/Blank Page Muse sister stores!  Don’t forget you can use my affiliate code to get 15% off, and it works at BOTH stores!  


My card today uses all stamps from IBFS.  I stamped the bouquet on white vellum and then used black embossing powder.  I colored on the back with alcohol markers.  Some well placed little pieces of foam tape were completely invisible to the eye.

The inside of the card was finished with another stamp from the set in a darker pink ink.  I stamped over top with a sentiment.  I gave this card to a good friend for her birthday recently and she really liked it.  And I am happy to report we had both sunshine AND laughter on her special day!

The stamps I used today are Florals Sheet and Inspirational Plate #2.  

The background die is from Impression Obsession.  This was placed over a piece of watercolor cardstock with distress inks and gold perfect pearls. 

Thank you for visiting today!
