Hello Fall Card

So all those banners I combined in the Mojo Monday sketch? Found them in this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I used up some more of my (retired) Sangria Paper, combined with more Enchantment Fundamentals. I stitch outlined everything by hand with a black journaling pen, which is why I added the black washi tape and sentiment. 
I wanted a little more shine, so I added some Rose Gold foil tape to play off the copper twine in the brown flower button. The leaves came from the SOTM, and that HELLO is my favorite thin cuts die
Only two more days until our first Crafty Card Buffet!

Gratitude Doily Card

So out of the entire Stamp of the Month set this month, I think this Gratitude sentiment image is my absolute favorite. 
I combined some of the new Enchantment Fundamentals with some Sangria retired paper. I love how the patterns in the new fundamentals can support and extend whats already in my paper stash! I was working off the sweet new RetroSketches sketch.
I topped off the design with slate sequins topped with some rounded clear gems. I love the look of white doilies against bold colors! 
Crafty Card Buffet kicks on on Sunday!

Thankful Beyond Measure card

So I am (as I'm sure many of you are as well) completely in LOVE with Betsy Veldman. Everything she makes is Amazing with a capital A, and if you haven't met her yet, go there now. I'll wait...and you're welcome.
So this week she did this card for Papertrey Ink Make it Monday and I about swooned. Immediately I knew I had to MAKE THE THING. So I grabbed my September SOTM and got inky. I started with the new Mojo Monday Sketch. I wanted to spray my background with Distress Spray in Antique Linen, so I extended that second panel to meet the first so my card base wouldn't curl up. I also extended the banner bits into a shiny copper twine wrap because shiny, And copper. I hope Mojo Monday will forgive me!
Instead of florals I used the big pumpkin image. You can imagine how inky my paws were after I finished the leaves and pumpkin inking.I added some touched on shimmer pen and glitter gel to the background stamping, but the real sparkle is that copper twine, which I scored at Target. 
Don't forget my new Card Buffet is coming this Sunday! Hope to see you there!

Gratitude Autumn Leaves Card

Another Monday means another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
I loved this week's sketch, and I was tempted to go floral, but then I realized I hadn't even busted open my Stamp of the Month yet. That just won't stand, so I went with autumn leaves and the Gratitude sentiment. I love the font combos on the sentiments in this set!
I decided to go with some of the Timberline woodgrain that I've been hoarding saving. I combine that with a bit of Jeepers Creepers, playing along with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge. I stamped the leaves in Sunset ink, and sponged them with a combo of Sunset, Lagoon, and Slate. I topped off those sunset stamped berries with a bit of glitter gel, which photographed really yellow for some reason. Then I added some swipes of shimmer pen to the leaves and the background sprigs.

I hope you'll hop on over to Atlantic Hearts to play along with this week's fun sketch challenge!
