I Drive Stick

I just LOVE this stamp set by Picket Fence Studios - it cracks me up. And I DO drive a stick shift car. I had to have this set. I created a CAS Halloween card using glittery embossing powder over a panel of blended Distress Oxide Inks.

Addicted To CAS #148 is up and running. The challenge is to make a ONE LAYER card and Barb is our hostess. Barb will be sending a crafty gift to the challenge winner.

Remember - A 'one layer' card is defined as "A piece of card folded in two. No other layers are allowed".

Don't forget, as always, Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor, and Kylie is generously awarding the winner  a $20.00 gift

To create my card, I masked a panel on Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock and blended some Distress Oxide inks in fall colors. I stamped a leaf from Paper Smooches Botanicals 2  in VersaFine Vintage Sepia over the inked panel. The heat embossed sentiment is from Jillian Vance Designs Auntum Blessings set.

I chose to make a shaker card with one of the dies from the Stampendous Leaf Die Set. I cut the leaf from a panel of PTI White Linen cardstock and added a pocket of sequins behind it. I put a piece of watercolor cardstock that had been smooshed with various fall colors behind the pocket to give it a little background color. I then cut that panel with the large frome from Avery Elle Wonky Stitches. I added the Autumn Dancing sentiment from So Suzy Stamps.

Autumn Blessings

Creative With Stamps Challenge #31 is up and running with the theme of "HALLOWEEN OR LEAVES". Fall is my favorite season. I love everything about it from warm days and cool nights to the colors, smells, foods, etc.

For my card, I decided on a leaf theme using Stampendous Cling Rubber Pen Pattern Leaves stamps and dies. I stamped one of the leaves with VersaMark ink, embossed it with copper EP, colored with DO inks, and sprayed it with sheer shimmer spray. I die cut a second leaf from kraft paper, ran it through my corrugator, sponged some distress ink on the edges and used it as a background piece placed behind the embossed leaf for a shadow effect.

The Challenge Sponsor is Pattie's Creations Digital Stamps. 
Challenge winner will receive 3 images from Pattie's ETSY Shop.
