Some November Crafting to Share

I thought I would share some cards I have made recently.

A get well card for a swimming friend. I love how the Brocade Blue Designer Series Paper looks like a pool bottom! The stamp set is from Pun Fun. I watercolored with Neutrals Watercolor Crayons and used the Color Spritzer tool with Brocade Blue marker to make the speckled background.

A thank you card that I made for the WICKED demo challenge on SCS. This uses "faux snow", made by rolling up scrap cardstock and grating with a cheese grater. Who would have thought? It actually came out very soft and touchable! The tutorial is on Jackie Topa's website.

Stamps: Pun Fun; Paper: Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Whisper White scrap, Close to Cocoa DSP (currently available on Clearance Rack); Ink: Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Oval punch, Aquapainter, Watercolor Crayons, Cheese Grater, CC Grosgrain ribbon, Texturz Background I, Big Shot, Sewing machine.

A birthday card for mountain biking fans. Stamps: Hit the Road; Paper: Dusty Durango, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, More Mustard, Very Vanilla; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel; Accessories: Sponge, Aquapainter, Earth Elements Watercolor Crayons, Ribbon, Texturz Background I, Big Shot.

And a birthday card experiment for stampin' buddy Michele, her website and fab work here. It is a pop-up card adapted from a Mother's Day card in Stampin' Up's Stampin' Success magazine. Did I ever mention that if you too sign up to be a demo, you can get this magazine every month full of great ideas and stampin' techniques?

Here it is opening up.

And a little farther open.

Here is a close up of the microbeads I used on the inside flower.

Stamps: Manhattan Flower, Wonderful You, Sincere Salutations; Paper: Kraft, Old Olive, Bordering Blue, Naturals White; Ink: Bordering Blue, Old Olive, Basic Black Classic ink and marker; Accessories: Corner rounder, Scallop edge punch, Spritzer tool, Gingham ribbon, Clear rhinestone brad, Felt flowers, Silver microbeads, Sponge.

Thanks for stopping by!
