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.
Use your favorite embossing folder and then use a brayer or gently slide your ink pad over the surface. You can use color or multiple colors. Stamp a focal image, color and then fussy cut. Embellish with some ribbon and a sentiment.
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!
I like to have some generic masculine cards on hand. It’s easy to add a quick sentiment for whatever the occasion.
I simply embossed my paper and then gently ran different ink pad over the surface. Try with any of your embossing folders to create some beautiful and fun backgrounds.

Create your own background with distress inks. I stamped my images twice: once on my card face and the other on white paper. I colored my images with alcohol markers and popped them up.
