Twisted Thanks

>> Sunday, October 23, 2016

Hi all,
today I want to share a 
Twisted Circular Easel Card
You can find the how to info 

For the stamping part I went old school the way I did thing back when I first started stamping.
I started by stamping the new 
Give Thanks Brush Pumpkin
with Versa Mark then heat embossing with gold powder on Bristol Paper. 
Then I used Tombow markers to color the image this paper makes blending so easy it also works wonderful with the Zig Clean and Clear markers. 
The image was fussy cut.

For the background I used part of the 

and Peacock Distress Ink.
 A white gel pen was used to traced around the die.

On the inside used some burlap ribbon.
I stamped the 
three times and colored them with Tombow markers. 
The leaves were attached with foam tape.

Have a wonderful day,



Give Thanks

Good morning!

Keeping with the colors for our Thursday challenge, I did this simple easel card using one of the new release stamps. I also used 1102G October Pumpkin with Fall Leaves.
I used a Kaliedacolor Harvest pad.
I stamped the pumpkins on the inside and then stamped, colored and cut them out another time to raise them up as a catch for my top to stay open. these would make cute name cards for a table setting don't you think?  They were very easy to make as well.
I used a set of nesting scallop dies from Spellbinders to make my card shape and layers.
Thanks for visiting today!


Pinecone Christmas

>> Friday, October 21, 2016

by Julie Warner - The Write Stuff

Happy Friday!
 I hope your week has gone well! Hopefully by today, we will have had a cool front come thru..because I tell you, this past week has surely felt like summer! Usually by Halloween we have had our first freeze but we haven't even approached refrigeration yet. So maybe if I think cold thoughts & make a Christmas card, it might help. Or not. But it won't hurt.

Today, I'm showing off a brand new Pinecone image. Isn't it wonderful? When I saw it, I just had a picture in my head of it hanging like an ornament so that's the direction I went. The pinecone was stamped, colored w/ Copics & fussy cut. Then I die cut a large white panel, cut out the arched window & cut another arch (using 2 sizes of the same die set) to make a frame. I stamped the Merry Christmas Arc on the frame (I cut the image apart to make it easier). On the leftover arched piece & also on the leftover large frame, I used the Woven Plaid stamp (the cut apart version), & the 3 colors of Distress inks. I went back I embossed the white layer w/ a snowfall folder before I put it all together & I also added a little die cut holly for the hanging part of the pinecone.
Here's a look at the inside. (I masked off the center to add the plaid around the edges.) Below it are the Copics I used.

Thanksgiving Scripture

>> Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Here is a sneak peak at a new scripture stamp coming out soon.  It works perfectly for Thanksgiving or for many other occasions.  I plan to use it in my Bible Journaling and for a Pastor Appreciation card thanking my pastor for all he does for our church and my family. 

I stamped the image twice and cut out the words I wanted to highlight on one.  I then smeared some distress crayon on those highlighted words and popped them up.  It needed something else so I added in the Fall Leaf with Acorn image which I had also colored with distress crayons.

Many hugz,



Campfire Treats

>> Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I bought all of the fixings to make S'mores last week, because I wanted to be ready to go the next time we have a bonfire.  I think I've eaten more of these tasty treats as an adult than I did as a!

Since I had them on my mind, I decided to ink up some of the marshmallow stamps from right here at DRS Designs. I may use this to invite some friends over to join us for this fall tradition :)

My background was made using the Mini Marshmallow and the Splatter Background stamp using brown and orange ink.  I stamped and die cut the S'more Greeting, adding some yellow splatters on top,

Before adhering the sentiment panel at an angle, I added a strip of orange cardstock and along with the Smooshed S'more that had been fussy cut.

  Be sure to check back here at the blog this week, we'll be showing off some peeks of new fall and holiday stamps!

Thanks so much for visiting today.



Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi! Today's card is a pretty simple one to create. I started with white CS, created a mask for the ground and sky and then sponged on the grassy area with Bundled Sage Distress ink and SU Bashful Blue for the sky. The greeting was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink and then I added the die cut fence. Last I stamped and colored the pumpkin, then fussy cut it and attached it to the card with glue dots. Everything is attached to the white card base.

Be sure to check out this week's challenge in honor of the US Navy.  We have a great prize for you. You can see details here.

Thanks for stopping by,
