Flourishes wreath

I used the new wereath again from Flourishes, I think this is so pretty. I also used a board from the gliter girls to emboss some borders which are very hard to see on the dark paper and used peel offs to accent them. I used my new M.S. extra large border punch for the cream colored center, those things are wonderful!!!! I cut the wreath out with the spellbinders die.Copics to color and some ribbon to accent.

Easel card

This Easel card is so fun and easy to make, I found a tutorial somewhere on SCS. You just take a piece of 12x6 card stock, score it at 6" and then at 3" on the left side only. Then just fold it so you can attach the card front as I have done here. You will need a bow or a brad or something in the center to make the card stand up. The angels are from Graphic 45 Christmas past paper, same paper as the tall and long cards in a previous post. Just added some bling and a spellbinders tag with a peel off saying and punched out the scrolls with EK punch of the glitter paper.

My swap card for Sutter stamps

I particiapted in the fall swap on our Sutter yahoo group, I used mostly Sutter stamps and a Beeswax for the waters edge with some sutter rocks, the fishing boy is from Bad Axe trading co now owned by Stamping Sensations. The trees are decorated with the new autumn flower soft for dimension. Copics to color and airbrush the scene.

Sugar Nellie angel

This little Angel is one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps from Funky Kits. I colored her with copic markers and framed her with one of the new Cuttlebug frames. Pale silk ribbon from Flourishes and some DP with M.S. snowflakes punched out of gold and a red gem in the center. Thanks for stopping by, hope your weekend is crafty.

Flourish Friday and new Santa stamp

I love this new Santa stamp from Flourishes. I stamped him in memento cocoa brown on their cream colored paper. I accented him with frosted lace stickles and some DP and flowers from Michaels. This is a tent card and will sort of stand up on it's own, LOL The flower at the top keeps it together.

Just a couple more scenes

This stallion scene is all Sutter stamps except for the oak branch on the left wich is Stampscapes with flower soft on it. The winter trees with the deer is a large Beeswax stamp with Stampscapes deer in it. I used stickles on the trees but they don't show up. Thanks so much for stopping by to see all the scenes today, this has been a great week of stamping with a friend.

Winter scenes and ornaments

The ornament scenes are a template that Ken Pesho shared with us on our Stamscapes II group. We printed them out and stamped on them, all scenes are done on cryogen white paper and colored and airbrushed with copic markers. I used stickles on the water and flower soft on the meadow for the snow.

My friend Pat is here visiting this week and we both belong to some Scenic stamping groups. We are having a wonderful time stamping and colorng our scenes. These are using Stampscapes, Sutter, Beeswax and some others, copics to color and airbrush the scenes on cryogen white paper.

Midnight madness #22 and Flourishes rose wreath

I took lots of artistic liberty with the layout as I really wanted to play with my new stamps from Flourishes. I used Basic grey Eva papers for the backgrounds and the inverted scalloped nestabilities from Spellbinders. Copics to color and thanks so much to Sheila's blog and her explanation I made the corners using a 1 1/2 inch sq, cut it to a triangle and then used tweezers to put it into a M.S. border punch. Check out her blog, she is the master at embellishments!!!! Have a great day and thanks Priscilla, these challenges are always so much fun.
