Gorgeous Fall Leaves

Hello Everyone ~ I have some Gorgeous Fall Leaves for you today.

Wow yesterday was so broken up.  I walked and then did Water Aerobics.  Then I came back and after my shower I started cleaning the bathroom.  I had to stop to take Bijou to the vets.  We were there for quite some time waiting.  She got her tests and then scheduled her for her teeth cleaning.  When I got back home I finished cleaning the bathroom and then spent some time in my studio.  I was surprised I got as much done as I did.

Today I do not have anything I have to do so I will be in my studio again.  I will also be finalizing my classroom for my next Inspiration in the Mail ~ Hello Fall online card class.  Registration begins on Saturday so check back for all the details.

Today’s card was inspired by a card I actually made about 10 years ago.  I had created a Fall card using Night Quite Navy (anyone remember that color?).  I loved it so I used the Misty Moonlight color for this card.  I paired this card with Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler.  I also used some linen thread as I had not used it on my cards for a while.  Here is my Gorgeous Fall Leaves creation.

Features of the Card

  • Painted Poppies
  • Painted Labels
  • card base ~ Misty Moonlight – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White ~ 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″
  • Regals patterned paper stack ~ 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Linen Thread
  • Greenery embossing folder

Have you ever used blue for Fall cards? Look at this Gorgeous Fall Leaves card that uses Misty Moonlight. Get all the details on my blog.

Pretty Peacock Beautiful Day

Hello Everyone ~ I have a One Color Wonder today with the Pretty Peacock Beautiful Day idea.

I was a designing fool yesterday.  I managed to get 5 sample cards and my Facebook Live sample created.  I also went to do my grocery pick up.  I am loving playing with the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle for this class.  I did some research and did you know that sunflowers come in other colors than the yellow we usually see?  Wait until you see some of the colors I used for the sunflowers on my cards for the Inspiration in the Mail ~ Hello Fall online card class!

Today I will walk and then we have water aerobics.  I also have a vet appointment for Bijou as she is due for shots.  I will work on some other cards in between.  I am hoping to get a few more cards made so I can decide which ones to use for the class.  If you have any ideas send them my way!

I used a die to make a stencil for today’s card.  The video shows you how to do that.  I also used a sneak peek for an upcoming class embellishment.  Here is the video for the Pretty Peacock Beautiful Day creation.

Features of the Card

  • Forever Fern bundle
  • Very Versailles
  • card base ~ Whisper White – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Pretty Peacock ~ 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Whisper White ~ 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″   and   scrap to die cut
  • Pretty Peacock marker
  • Iridescent Pearls

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I was hoping for some rain last night.  We had thunder all around us and it was pretty intense.  All we got as a little sprinkle!  Not sure when we will get some rain as we need it.  Have a Wonderful Wednesday and will you try the stencil idea like I used for the Pretty Peacock Beautiful Day idea?

Forever Greenery Hello

Hello Everyone ~ I played with one of the suites in the annual catalog for my Forever Greenery Hello card.

Well I did not play cards yesterday.  I did get my videos made, my card for today’s Facebook Live made, my Facebook posts created and scheduled, dust mopped my floor, and finished my book.  It was nice to get so much done!

Today will be a busy morning.  I will walk, have a call, have water aerobics, then I have a Facebook Live.  In the afternoon I will play cards and make some of my cards for my class.  I have the designs so it is just a matter of making them which is the easy part.  I will also start my September book club book.

This week I am focusing on the embossing folders that are part of the product option for my Inspiration in the Mail ~ online card class Hello Fall!  I will be using the embossing folders on my cards all week.  Today’s card used one of the folders to create a fun panel.  I paired it with some of the products from the Forever Greenery suite.  Here is my Forever Greenery Hello idea.

Isn't this a beautiful card? I used some designer series paper along with an embossing folder for this Forever Greenery Hello card.

Crushed Curry Regals Patterned Paper Stack

Hello Everyone ~ a fun idea for you with my Crushed Curry Regals Patterned Paper Stack creation.

Well I got all my cards made yesterday and ran my errands.  I did not get my videos made so I will make them today.  I did not have any success with my errands.  I could not find my Happy Planner calendar refill and no glue dots.  Will be ordering both ASAP so I can get them here.  I did manage to get a watermelon so that was good.  I also forgot to take my empty printer ink cartridges with me so I could get another package of ink.  That will be an errand I run next week as I am good for now.

Today I am going to make my videos.  I am hoping to get them made in the morning.  Then if Barb is up for it we will play cards.  If not I will read.  I am also hoping to plan out a few tasks I need to get done before next weekend.  As usual our forecast changed and we are not going to get any rain today.  It is going to be hot again so I will still stay inside and get my fingers inky.

Have you seen the Dandelion 3D embossing folder in the Annual Catalog?   They made a gorgeous card using vellum with it.  I decided to use it along with the Crushed Curry Regals Patterned Paper Stack woodgrain paper to make a fun card.  I love how it turned out.  I colored the heads with a sponge dauber and the stems with a marker.  Here is my Crushed Curry Regals Patterned Paper Stack card.

Features of the Card

  • card base ~ Crushed Curry – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White ~ 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Regals designer series paper ~ 3/4″ x 5″
  • Silver metallic edge ribbon
  • Dandelion 3D embossing folder

 Do you remember blowing dandelions as a child? These are the best kind as it uses an embossing folder. Check out my Crushed Curry Regals Patterned Paper Stack for a pretty dandelion card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a great embossing folder. Perfect for decorating a card front or the inside or envelope. See how I used this embossing folder to make the Crushed Curry Regals patterned Paper Stack card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This embossing folder would be perfect to pair with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.  Here are some cards using that stamp set.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am so hoping I can sleep in this morning.  This is the one day I can sleep in and hopefully my body will cooperate and not wake up really early.  Have a Sensational Sunday and did you enjoy the Crushed Curry Regals Patterned Paper Stack card?
