Lady cards

It is harvest time here in Wine Country so you can see why I love this stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. This beautiful Arts & Crafts period image is very fun to color. I did two prints, one in Black and the other in Sepia Versafine inks. The lady was cut out and popped onto the sepia print. The rosy background is pink cardstock embossed using a Cuttlebug folder and painted with a blend of shiny rose acrylic paints. I was thinking this would be a good card for the Gingersnapcreations Harvest challenge.
This lovely lady is a digital freebie from Clearly Vintage. I colored it lightly with colored pencils. The background was made with clear embossing on newsprint and then adding ink to cover. You just wipe off any from the embossed area. I love this quote from Abraham Lincoln. Yes, the card is for my mother. Both the backgrounder and sentiment stamp are from Cornish Heritage Farms. The corner pieces are die cut using a Cuttlebug die.

Cats, buttons and scraplings

I love Sprinkles no matter what she gets up to! Here she is gracing the fronts of a pair of scraplings I made for the Two Peas Stamptoberfest challenge as well as Amy's supply challenge for The Cat's Pajamas's TCP Tuesday.

Feels like autumn

Tonight the air is crisp with a hint of chill that may bring color to the leaves. Must be time for some cards with a feeling of fall.
This squirrel card was stamped with Hero Arts stamps. I had fun making little punchie acorns.
The leafy background on this one is a paper napkin. It was fused to Freezer Wrap and adhered to the card front. I made this one for a challenge to use eyelets. It is a rare thing for me to use fancy eyelets so this really was a challenge. Fun one though. The stamp is an older dollar stamp from Michaels.
