Vintage Leaves Birthday

The Vintage Leaves set combined with the Hardwood background stamp make an awesome combo to create masculine cards, like this birthday card...

The edges are sponged with Early Espresso ink for a more rustic look and to help the main Crumb Cake layer stand out more from the base which is also Crumb Cake. The green I used here is Mossy Meadow.

I love the realistic leaves in this set which is just perfect for this time of year! I still have a few of my Golden Vintage Leaves kits left to create the fall themed canvas and home decor accessories, as shown below. Get all the details in this post.

Watermelon Watercolor Wings

The pretty stamped and die cut butterfly created using the Watercolor Wings stamp set and coordinating Bold Butterfly Framelits takes center stage on this quick and easy card.

I played with this set, having fun stamping all all sorts of color I am not entirely sure what colors I used here....but I'm guessing Watercolor Wonder, Rich Razzleberry and maybe Calypso Coral.

The Watercolor Wonder Dotted Lace Trim and some Basic Rhinestones add the finishing touches.

Vintage Leaves Thanks

Autumn is coming...(I like the sound of that better than "Winter is coming.") This week we've been blessed with a few more warm & sunny 80 degree days, but it sure has been getting chilly at night! We only have a few trees just starting to change color, but soon our maple trees will be the gorgeous hues of Delightful Dijon, Tangerine Tango and Cherry Cobbler as shown below.

After embossing the maple leaf from Vintage Leaves in white I sponged on the ink colors listed above. The background got the same treatment with the addition of some texture from Gorgeous Grunge. The pattern from the Boho Chic Embossing Folder along with the Natural Chevron Ribbon remind me of fall sweater textures so I thought they were a good fit for this fall inspired card.

Vintage Wilderness

I just LOVE this cute little fox from The Wilderness Awaits set! I've paired it up here with an equally great set, Vintage Leaves, for a masculine birthday card.

I created a tutorial a while back detailing step by step how I water colored this little guy and created the background using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder. There's a link on my sidebar or here if you would like more info. My latest tutorial features home decor projects using the Vintage Leave may want to check that one out as well.

Golden Vintage Leaves Set

I really cannot believe that we are already more than a week into September! School is back in session and soon fall will be here. During this past month, even though the weather has been warm, it has already seemed like fall in my studio. That's because I've been busy creating a home decor set which is just perfect for the upcoming season. I'm so excited to finally be able to share it with you!

My autumn themed coordinating set combines elegant metallic gold with the rustic textures of wood and burlap. Add in a mixture of lifelike autumn leaves created using the Vintage Leaves stamp set and Leaflets Framelits and you have a stunning set perfect for fall decorating.

Thanksgiving is coming up and these pieces work well together or can be used as individual gifts…especially the wine bottle tag. The other pieces in this set include a decorated mason jar painted with chalk paint; perfect to hold the realistic looking oak branch. An 8 x 8 canvas ready to display your favorite autumn photo and a candle wrap with coordinating mat to dress up your battery operated candle.

Cozy Christmas Ornament

I absolutely love the beautiful, intricate detail of the new Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies...especially when cutting the foil papers! Here I've paired it with the Home For Christmas DSP and the Cozy Christmas stamp set.

I really like all the patterns in the Home For Christmas DSP pack because there are classic foliage patterns as shown here along with absolutely darling vintage patterns including adorable fawns that look like Bambi, cute Santas and more...cannot wait to work with these papers some more!

On the center of the ornament is one of the new Iced Rhinestone Embellishments. They are really pretty! You get two sizes, and I used the smaller one here. The die cut ornaments are a great size to use for gift tags...which I am planning to do.

Have a GREAT weekend!
