Well, now that it is officially Fall, I thought I would make a card to celebrate!
For this card, I used some images from DRS Designs. I stamped the Candy Corn & Leaf Card Edger along the top and bottom of a piece of vanilla cardstock. Using Copic Markers, I colored the leaves in. I cut along the Leaf Card Edger border to make the scallops. That sure makes a quick and easy card! You just have to love that, don't you? I stamped the Changing Leaves sentiment onto piece of vanilla cardstock and cut/embossed using the Labels Seventeen Nestabilities™. I added some brown gingham ribbon to complete this card. Super fast and easy but a fun card to send to someone who needs a pick-me-up, don't you think?
Don't you just love these images? When I opened my package from DRS Designs and saw this cute little "S'more" I couldn't wait to get him inky! To make this card, I first stamped my background using the Marshmallow Background (H281) and white craft ink. Then I sprinkled on some Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heat set. Then I inked the last sentence to the new sentiment S'more Greeting (K376) with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and stamped it onto some white cardstock. I punched out the greeting using an EK Success punch and layered it onto a piece of dark chocolate cardstock, adding gold brads in the corners. The Smiling S'more image was stamped onto some white cardstock and colored using Copic Markers. I added some crystal stickles to give him some shimmer. I layered the image onto a white Classic Square Nestabilities™ Lg. I also used the new Eyelet Squares Nestabilities™ cut/embossed from the dark chocolate cardstock. To finish my card, I added some brown gingham ribbon.
I made the base of this card using the Deepest Mahogany cardstock, folded into an A-2 card and cut using Labels 8 Nestabilities™ #6. I cut/embossed some yellow cardstock using the #5 Labels 8 Nestabilities™. To find out which die is which, start numbering like this - smallest is #1 and on up! I stamped the S'more Greeting Sentiment onto white cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and cut/embossed using Labels 8 Nestabilities #4. I stamped the Smooshed S'more onto white cardstock twice and colored it using Copic Markers. I cut them out and mounted them onto my card using some Pop Up Glue Dots®. I used a Slot Punch to make a place for my ribbon on the Label 8 die cut and at the fold of my card. I thread the ribbon thru the slots and tied it into a knot to complete my card.
These were so much fun to make! Can't you just picture some cute Bonfire Party favors made using these images? I sure can and since we are having a Bonfire soon, I am gonna get busy!! Hope you have a great weekend!
So it's Monday again! I can't decide if I want that to be a positive or a negative, LOL! We had a busy weekend here in the Seyer household. There was a big marching band competition and a terrible thunderstorm ending with our house being out of electric for 12 hours. Not a fun way to spend Saturday night into Sunday, let me tell you.
This is a card I made using a new release from DRS Designs. This Precious Pumpkin stamp will be available for purchase on 9/22 but I thought he was so cute, I just had to give you a sneek peak. Don't you just love him? I can't believe we are already talking about Halloween. Time sure flies! Well this is all for today! Hope you have a great Monday!
Today is my day to blog on the DRS Designs blog, so go and check it out! This week, DRS Designs is sponsoring the sketch on the 365 Cards blog. Its a super cute sketch and I had alot of fun making some cards using it.
Here is one of my cards:
You can see the other card and read about all the details on the DRS Designs blog! Enjoy checking it out! Have a great Monday!
Wow, things have been so busy around our house the last 2 weeks! So I decided that I will post my own Free-For-All! I have a few cards I have made that I would love to share with you!
This card I made using a new stamp set that I got at the CHA Supershow from Taylored Expressions called CreativiTEA. I stamped the flower image repeatedly and colored it in with Copic Markers.
The patterned paper for this card is from The Girls' Paperie. I used a new stamp set from Stampin' Up! for the main image and embossed it using black embossing powder. I added some black organdy ribbon and a ribbon tag from Spellbinders. Did you notice my brand spanking new Spellbinders die on this card? Don't you just love the Beaded Ovals? I got some other new release stuff from Spellbinders to share with you over the next few weeks, too!
I just love this image! It's a new release from DRS Designs called Wintertime Buddies. I colored this cute image in using Copic Markers. Then I added some Crystal Stickles to the fur of Santa's outfit. I cut out the image and layered it on a piece of white cardstock that I embossed only using a Labels Nine Nestabilities. The sentiment called Small Merry Christmas.
So these are just a few of the cards I have been working on these past few weeks. There will be another Mark's Finest Paper blog hop coming on September 7. You will love all the great new images that Faith has ready to release!
Hello! Hope you are having a great time on the DRS Designs Blog Hop Scavenger Hunt. If you are following the hopping list you came from Dawn's blog. If you came here first, please go back to the DRS Designs Blog to begin the hop. Along this hop there will be 5 clues that will help you come up with the right answers to submit to win a great package of new releases from DRS Designs. You can see the great sets HERE.
Here are my cards for today's hop!
Here is my first card. I used a sketch that I found a few weeks ago. I really liked this sketch because it was simple and not too "bumpy"!! LOL For this card, I used the new release Holly Oval (K166) and cut/embossed it using a Standard Ovals Lg Nestabilities. I stamped the Small Merry Christmas (B1014) using red ink onto white cardstock. I cut/embossed using a smaller Standard Ovals Lg Nestabilities and layered that onto a red scalloped oval. I added the lace, gold trees and olive twill to complete the card. Super simple and hopefully not too much extra on the postage!
For my next card I used the same two stamps - Holly Oval and Small Merry Christmas and I added the Holly Background. I stamped the background using olive ink onto olive cardstock. I added the lace and ribbon to complete the card. I think these will make great, simple Christmas cards to mass produce. I probably won't use that big bow but you get the idea! LOL Now that you have checked out my blog post, hop on over to Julie's blogfor your next stop!

Here is a card I made using a new release from DRS Designs. I think this image is so cute for all those dog lovers!
This new release, Doggie Dilemma Dog with Fence, is just so easy to color using Copic Markers. I stamped the background stamp (Small Cat Print) using Certainly Celery ink onto Certainly Celery cardstock. Well, I sure didn't realize I used the cat print stamp. I will have to remember next time which is the cat and which is the dog!! LOL The sentiment is called Talk to The Paw sentiment. Too Cute!!
Hope you are having a great week! I am still at the CHA Supershow until Sunday. Check back for more tomorrow!
Hope you had a great weekend! Here where I live it is too hot to even go outside! So I spent the weekend in my crafting room and I can't wait to share with you what I made!
Today is my day to blog over at the DRS Designs blog. The past few weeks, DRS Designs has been sponsoring a sketch challenge. Now you know, I love a sketch challenge! Here is the card I made!
I stamped theLily Sympathy Cross using Versamark ink and silver embossing powder. Its such a delicate and beautiful stamp, don't you think! I cut/embossed the image using a Labels 8 Nestabilities. Behind the image I used a Fair Isle Borderabilities cut/embossed from Silver cardstock. Along the bottom, I stamped the1 lIne Heartfelt Condolences Sentiment in Teal ink onto teal cardstock. I added some silver brads and that completes this card! Pretty simple and the sketch was already thought up for me!
