Bokeh Dots Christmas

Oh, this card was so fun to make.  I saw a similar version on the internet or facebook and have been wanting to give this stamp set a try.  

Bokeh Dots In The Woods

Now, I really like the way the coloring on the background stamp came out.  To acheive this look I used Stampin' Spots that had been inked with re-inkers and daubed them onto the stamp.  The edge lines ended up being exactly the right look.  I love that the middle color looks like mountains as it goes perfectly with the tree next to it.

There are a couple of other tips you will find when you visit the These Are My Stamps site so you will want to hop over there to get those.

Buffalo Check Christmas

Trying out a few ideas for Christmas cards.  It is September and for some of my customers they want to get started early on those Christmas cards.  So here is one I came up with.

Buffalo Checks Noel

The Buffalo Check pattern is obvious and so is the Tin Tile Dynamic embossed background.  Details are on my These Are My Stamps site so hop on over there and check it out.

Happy Fall Rooted In Nature

I have been feeling challenged to come up with fall cards.  I'm not sure why but there it is.  I had a bunch of stamp sets and dies laying on my work table and sat down to start playing with them and these two cards are what I was inspired to create.  I hope you like them.  They are very similar yet very different too.

Here is card number one.  You can access the supplies list and instructions on my These Are My Stamps site.

Buffalo Check Rooted In Nature

I offset the letters and word with Very Vanilla to make them stand out a little bit better.  I really like this card and the Buffalo plaid look is totally "IN" this fall.

 

Card number two: This is a type of Eclipse card.  When looking from a distance it is difficult to see the detail of the letters that are raised but up close they stand out so that you can.  I added some Wink of Stella to the letters as well so they had a bit of a shimmer to them and I really liked that.

Rooted In Nature Large Letter Dies

I used similar technique to get the background for this card and for the lettering for the first one.  Traditional fall colors and there it is. Check out my These Are My Stamps site for more info.

Pleasant Phesants Thanksgiving Card

I used the Pleasant Phesants stamp set to make a Thanksgiving card.  It could also make a nice masculine card with a different sentiment.

I am not very good at coloring but it came out fairly well.  Some people have a real knack for blending and shading but it's just not me so I have a hard time using these kind of stamps that require a lot of coloring.  But I got brave and gave it a try.

I think a litlle Wink Of Stella added to the Phesants neck color would help too as in real life they do have a kind of shimmer.  The supply list and instructions are on my These are My Stamps site.
