The Ton Fresh Cut Sunflowers Birthday Card with Envelope | Layering Stamps

DSCN4110

Here is the beautiful Fresh Cut Sunflowers Stamp Set from The Ton Stamps.  They are one of my favorite companies for layering stamps!  I used carious Stampin’ Up inks for the colors of my sunflowers and leaves.  I used my Broken China Oxide Ink, my new obsession, to create the subtle blue background.

I also created an envelope with different measurements than what is on the envelope punch board.  To create an A2 size envelope, you want to cut your paper to 8″ x 8″ and score at 3 1/2″.  You will get a perfect envelop to fit your A2 card perfectly!

Fall 2016 Card Series | Day 8 of 10 | Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest

dscn1392

Hello you guys!  Welcome to day 8 in my fall card series.  We are nearing the end and even though I previously did a card with a scarecrow, I could not pass up using adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set.  Instead of using my go to with my Zig markers or Distress Inks, I busted out some Prismacolors I just recently purchased.  They happened to be on a pile of junk at Wal-Mart in the craft section with a big yellow sticker marking them at $10.00 for a 24 count.  I couldn’t pass them up as I have been eyeing them for a while.

I colored all my images with the Prismacolors and blended using Gamsol Mineral Spirits.  I am in love!!  The pencils are already so creamy and blending with the Gamsol was so easy and smooth.  I definitely like this alternative when I don’t want to use watercolors or my Zig Markers.  One day I will get Copics, but until then these are the next best thing in my opinion and much more cost effective!

Fall 2016 Card Series | Day 4 of 10 | My Favorite Things Fall Friends

I was so excited to bust out this stamp set.  Fall is my favorite time of year and nothing says fall like scarecrows and pumpkins!  This is a great stamp set from My Favorite Things called Fall Friends.

To create the watercolor look I used Distress Inks which are my go to for anything watercolor.  The inks are so versatile!!  I did some sloppy water coloring which is becoming my new obsession.  It is so freeing and seems to always turn out a lot better than if I was careful and stayed in the lines.

Below are some close-ups of the card.  If you want to see the card come together in action, click this link to watch the video: Fall Friends

The fence die is actually a Halloween fence die from MFT.  I think it works great on this card!  I love the fact that is is a little wonky and crooked in some places.

Love the shine the embossing powder gives to the images adding a little character.

I rarely do the inside of my cards, but really would like to start adding that extra touch.  I had an extra sunflower that I adhered in the corner of the inside of the card.
