Count My Blessings

Hi Everyone,

While the flowers in the Count My Blessings Stamp Set are a real stand out, I also really liked the leaves and acorns together.  I got out my Watercolor Pencils and started coloring with this card.  I just love the pencils and would love them even more if we had more colors but you can certainly make more colors than are in the box.  For this card I first colored the leaves in Pumpkin Pie and then lightly colored over them in Real Red.  Then I just used my blender pen to blend the 2 colors together getting just the shade I wanted.  I think the fall colors look great with metallic tones so I paired it with some Copper Foil Sheets and some Copper Ribbon.

Hope you enjoy it!

Count My Blessings

Hi Everyone,

Well, today is the day.... The day everyone can order from the new Holiday Catalog!  I'm so excited for you :)  I was lucky enough to have a box of preorder supplies arrived today and it included the Count My Blessings Stamp Set.  I don't know why but I had been so on the fence about this set and now I'm so glad I bought it!  This set can truly be used year round even though I think of it as a Thanksgiving set. 

For this sample I cased the catalog a little bit.  I did change up the matting a little and added some gold elements.  To get the 2 toned look in the flowers I colored with the Peekaboo Peach and then added some Pumpkin Pie.  I just love how it turned out and I hope you do too.

Merry Cafe

Hi Everyone!

Its such a gorgeous day here in Connecticut.  I really hate the heat of summer.  I know that hate is a really strong word but sometimes when its in reference to the hot weather I feel like its not even strong enough.  But today.... Today its only 74 degrees and that is tolerable to me.  I am longing for the cooler days of Fall and Winter and decided to make a Fall card.

I saw a card on instagram by @pjbstampin that used the apples from the Bike Ride set from the Annual Catalog with the Merry Cafe set from the Holiday Catalog and decided to make one for myself.  For the background I used an aquapainter on the Watercolor Paper and then sponged over that. I just love the way it came out.  Hope you enjoy!

Hearts Come Home

Hi Everyone,

I think I'm a little obsessed right now.  I just love the new Hearts Come Home set and matching Edgelits.  I love the house stamps and the sentiments and the edgelits with the church, etc....  I just can't stop playing with them.  For this card I used just a part of one of the Edgelits and paired it with one of the sentiments along with the Merry Music Specialty DSP.  The Merry Christmas is from the Star of Light Stamp Set.  I just love the font and its one of my favorite stamps. 
Hope you enjoy!
