Do Small Things Shaker Card

Hello again,

Now that Fall is in full swing, it gave inspiration for this new card.  I have been totally obsessed with the Tim Holtz alcohol inks and their vibrant colors.  You never know quite what you are going to get – it is a fun adventure.  This one just reminded me of the colorful explosion of color Fall brings.

Golden Leaves by Heather Telford

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends,
Whether you celebrate Thanksgiving in Canada (today) or in the U.S. (in November), it is a wonderful day to spend with family and friends.  And for all those that you can’t be with on that momentous day, it is a great time to send a special card to let them know you are thinking of them.

The card we are presenting today is done by the extremely talented, Heather Telford of Bits and Pieces blog (www.cards.heathertelford.com).  Heather is renowned for exquisite watercolor projects and this Thanksgiving card is no exception.  She has created a vision of beauty using the Penny Black Grateful Stamp Set and Peerless Watercolors.  She has even created a video on how she created her watercolor paletted and used her Peerless Watercolors.  It is simply brilliant.  Be sure you don’t miss it.  It is featured after her card below.

Ready to Jump for Joy?

Hi Friends,

Today is a red-letter day for all of us at Foiled Fox!  Laurel Beard and the kind peeps at Lawnscaping Challenge are featuring many of our projects today on their blog. Be sure to go and check it out.  If you haven’t already, subscribe to their newsletter.  You can also have some fun and participate in some of their challenges.  Their blog is always bursting with creative ideas and projects by some very talented folk.

In the meantime, here is a close-up of one of the cards.  Since Fall is nearly upon us who else is better to usher in Autumn than the cuddly forest Lawn Fawn squirrel from the Jump For Joy stamp set.  This adorable squirrel was just achin’ to jump into that big pile of leaves so I had to make it happen.   You just need to move the clear acetate lever at the bottom of the card so Mr. Squirrel gets his wish.

Hello there! May Flaum here from www.craftwithmay.com and I’m so excited to be visiting here today and sharing two cards created with my 28 Lilac Lane Autumn Afternoon kit. I love to use embellishment kits for all kinds of crafting, however adding sprinkles of fun to my cards is one of my favorite things to do! If you’re worried about bulk simply stick to beads & sequins. Otherwise – run wild!
