Fall Pillow Boxes...Using Chubby Pumpkin!

Hi there and happy Sunday,
I have a set of "FALL" pillow boxes to share with you.
These pillow  boxes are fun to make and easy to mass producing!

My image is "Chubby Pumpkins" from 

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with Copic Markers. Once the image was color I fussy cut it leaving a small white border. Next I used my Sizzix Thinlists 660660 to die cut the pillow box. For my background I used a Sizzix embossing folder and a few distress inks. It's so hard to capture the look of the embossing folder in a photo.

To finish my project I added some sequins, gold ringtones, and the word Fall. Also added some sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen. Here is another project using this adorable image.

Have a BLESS day!

Celebrate Birthdays!

Hello and Happy Sunday Everyone!

Today I have for you a birthday card. It doesn't quite follow our monthly theme, but everyone needs birthday cards! And, since this week happens to be a birthday week for someone very important to me, I wanted to post a card to acknowledge the occasion.

This High Hopes stamp is called Party Cow and I’ve paired it with Champagne Glass. This is the perfect little image to turn my party cow into an “extra” special party cow! Cheers!

Have a perfectly lovely Sunday and we'll see you again next week with more great inspiration from the talented team at High Hopes Stamps.

Fall Fun!!!

Welcome HH Fans;

Fall themed cards is the order of business and fun over on the High Hopes Stamps blog today.  One of my favourite things with fall is how all the leaves change from their rich green to beautiful shades of orange, yellow and red.  Once they dropped from the trees, it was so much fun playing in them.

Pumpkin Friends

I have a few friends going through some tough times and I am hoping this card will make one of them feel better or smile when they receive it. 

I had some  fun making a fall themed "hug in a card" using Pumpkin Border and Chubby Pumpkins from High Hopes. This is the first card I have made using a stamped border. I find it very challenging to find a way to use them to be honest. However, this card has started the border creative juices flowing so you may see more in the future. <wink>

After colouring my stamps with alcohol markers, I hand fussy cut them leaving a thin white border around the edge of the pumpkin border. Paper from MFT gave a subtle water color wash background and to me makes the card feel like a warm hug. I cut the border piece out using a stitched rectangle die - I had to cut the leaves on the edge to slip the die in behind the border to cut it. A matching stitched fishtail banner was perfect for the sentiment. Some ribbon and heart shaped sprinkles finish off my card.
