Again wishing for cooler weather! I love the look of pumpkins and gourds adorning front porches.
Use your different ink pads to create a faux wood look for your background. I stamped some leaves on the die cut behind the pumpkin. I hope this inspires you to create some fall decor or cards for loved ones.
My maternal Grandmother, Noni, was a very special lady. Today we celebrate what would have been her 106th birthday. This card’s flowers, lace and floral papers are classic Noni.
For those inclined to celebrate today the Noni way, please have a piece of pumpkin pie, a piece of Sees candy or fruit salad in her honor.
Since it has been so hot, I thought maybe some imagery of cooler weather would help! HaHa!!!
For those who love Fall, this week will have you wishing for a mug of soup, hot chocolate and a crackling fire.
I created a faux wood background by swiping different ink pads across my paper. Stamp any focal image and sentiment you like.
I dedicate this card to all of those with genetic illnesses awaiting a medical break through to ease their daily struggles. This week we lost someone to Cystic Fibrosis. She was a mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend and teacher. Words can never be enough to fill the void left by someone you love.
Hug those you love every day and be thankful you have the day with them!
It’s boy’s week! Masculine cards are usually a challenge. I find it quite challenging to reign in my passion to make flowers. This week I bought some paper crafting magazines and decided that I would try to focus on masculine cards.
This card features a stamp set called “Safari Friends” from the Papercraft Essentials Magazine, Issue 145 and die cuts from Tattered Lace called Summer Pasture.
I hope this weeks theme inspires you to make all of those birthday cards ahead of time for when school starts and the parties begin.
This one takes a little more time but is still a quick card. I used an embossing folder that had 2 designs on it, stamp and embossed my wreath, colored the wreath and attached the die cut bow. Embellish with some small pearls.
Quick and easy mixing and matching tags and die cuts.
Another quick and easy layering of die cuts.
The theme of the week is quick and easy. Throw together some left over die cuts and create a fun card for someone special.
Enjoy every day!
- Base cardstock 5 1/2 x 10 1/2″

To assemble your card, score your base piece on the long side at 2 1/2″ and 6 1/2″. Fold along the score lines. Stamp and color all of your accessory pieces. Die cut all pieces. Attach the heart border to the edge of 2 patterned paper pieces. Use 1 for the front of your card and the other for the 3rd panel. (see below)
I used the small square die to cut out the center of the front mason jar. Attach the clear plastic to the back of that piece. Attach foam tape to the outside edge of the back mason jar and sprinkle glitter inside. Attach your stem piece to the base piece then attach the front mason jar to complete your shaker.
Finish adding your decorations in your own style.
