Autumn Splendor

I am enjoying the beautiful fall weather and the change of seasons. After 12 years away from this season it is starting to grow on me again. (Florida and California got me a bit spoiled...) I was having a great time this month making creations with the Autumn Splendor stamp set. My theme this month in the stamp room was "Fancy Folds". Here is one of the cards I came up with using the "Tri-Fold Shutter Card". This is originally inspired from Splitcoast Stampers. I have made several of these this month and thought I should share my "Autumn Splendor". Click on the photo to get a closer view!

The Red Hat Ladies Drop in for a Class

Last week I had so much fun as I welcomed some beautiful women aka "Red Hat Ladies" into my stamp studio. We laughed, snacked and crafted together for what was a SUPER FUN time!! I can't wait to see them again. Here they are in their beautiful hats! We made several projects but the just one project is featured here. We learned how to use the brayer,masking and embossing and blender pens techniques! Did you miss out on the fun? Join me this month in my stamp room to make your own projects!

A Quick Trip to Yellowstone National Park

My husband surprised me with a trip to Yellowstone National Park. We had just 3 days to explore the park. We had the most amazing time adventuring and hiking together. It was so much fun to take a complete break from cell phones, e-mail and daily routines to just get away!! I enjoyed seeing all the wildlife. I really did not know what I would see there. Each adventure was a beautiful window into God's creations! I found joy in the simplest of things. Flowers, animals, birds, trees. My favorite is always the waterfalls. I am drawn to them whenever I travel. Now I am back--school has started and it's time to get down to stampin'!!

Razzle Dazzle with Poppin' Pastels

Here is a little card we made recently in my Stamp Club. It is made using a simple technique called poppin pastels. It is so fun to use the pastels and then layer the look with the spritzer tool and additional chalk around the edges. Makes me feel a little bit like an artist! I used sponge daubers to apply the pastels. I have tried every tool on earth and have decided that the daubers provide the best control for me. I am having a lot of fun with these new In Colors. Here I have Melon Mambo. The stamp sets used are Oval All and Razzle Dazzle.
