{TCP Tuesday} Raindrops

stamps:  Rise and Shine (TCP)
paper:  Kaisercraft Spring Bloom (Stamp Simply)

Time for a TCP Tuesday challenge card!  It was a sketch challenge this week.  Fall brings cold raindrops with it in my part of the country, so I colored up my sweet BunBun with his umbrella to coordinate with this fun Kaisercraft Summer Bloom paper.  Besides, it has orange in it and orange is a fall color, right?? : )  The tag is actually part of the paper pad and I stamped it in Gina K Ocean Mist ink with some of the raindrops from the set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

{Stamp Simply} Fall Leaves

This card looks like my yard!  It's covered ankle deep in pretty autumn leaves.  Which I love except when it makes my allergies flare up. : )

I started this card by stamping a piece of kraft cardstock with the JustRite Burlap background, and adding a strip of Basic Grey Evergreen patterned paper.  Who says Christmas paper can only be used on Christmas cards??? : )  I added a Doily and then stamped, colored, and fussy cut a number of leaves from the JustRite Fall Applique set.  I stamped my Verve Sentiment on a piece of vellum in dark brown ink and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.  I centered it on the strip of vellum so I could attach it by wrapping it around my kraft layer and adhering it to the back.  Then  I attached the whole layer to my card base with 3D Foam.  I added a little bow made of Gold String for some sparkle.

Here's the Stamp Simply shopping list!

{Lili of the Valley} Coloring Again!

I've been coloring again!  This time I inked up James and his snowman.  I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers on Gina K's Heavy Base Weight White cardstock.  It colors SO beautifully!  I'm entering this in LOTV's Anything Goes challenge.

{Stamp Simply} Pink Smiles

Hello!  It's Stamp Simply day on my blog!  We have gone pink this week in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, so I have a fun pink card to share with a few more goodies on it than my usual fairly clean and classic style...

I used the fun Bokeh Dots Background stamp to make my background.  I first stamped it in Versamark ink onto my watercolor paper panel.  Then I clear embossed it and applied a wash of two or three different shades of pink using my distress markers and water.  I cut out my label with the Vintage Tags die and sponged it while it was still in the die.  I added some pretty lace and fun pompoms and a little of my favorite - dotted sheer ribbon.  The flowers are actually 3D stickers and I just dressed them up a little by adding a rhinestone to the center of each.  

Here's my supply list...
