The Project Bin

 I am loving all the fall colors when I go for my daily walks.  This is my favorite time of the year.  Such gorgeous colors.  Today I chose to go with that theme in making my card for The Project Bin.

I used the stamp set "Pumpkin Spice" for the sentiment and the pumpkin.  I love layering up the pumpkin with different colors of ink.  I like a yellow for the center and then orange around the edges.  I stamped the sentiment with dark brown ink and used Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges.  

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful fall weather.

Dueling Darlings

 Time for our Dueling Darlings challenge today.  LJ and Terry S were our hostesses this month and they chose a fun theme of halloween.  Gnomes are all the rage right now so Terry sent us images from Photoplay called "Gnome For the Holidays Halloween".  I had so much fun coloring up these adorable halloween images.

The images were stamped on Neenah Classic Crest super smooth white paper with Memento Tuxedo Black which is my favorite ink to use when coloring with copics. 

The designer paper is also from Photoplay.  The enamel dots are from Gina Marie and the ribbons are from The Ribbon Boutique.

Thanks Terry and LJ for a great challenge this month.

PIP Challenge #2041

 Another week begins and I have another card I made for Pammie's Inky Pinkies challenge #2041.  This weeks challenge is being sponsored by one of my favorite stamp companies which is Newton's Nook Designs.  I love this stamp company because of the adorable cat stamps and other adorable stamps they have.


For my card today I used the stamp set "Harvest Tails" which is one of my favorite fall stamps that I find myself using every fall season.  I recently bought some new coloring pencils by Arteza and decided to give them a try in coloring my image.  They blend so nicely and I really like the finished product.  The designer paper I used was from LDRS Happy Fall.  

I hope to see your projects over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies and be sure and check out Newton's Nook Designs.

Crafters of Faith

 Yesterday was our reveal day for our Crafters of Faith group but I wanted to used my project for The Project Bin so I thought I would post it today.

Kelly is our hostess this month and she chose Isaiah 34:2 as our scripture for the month of October.  It reads "When you go through deep waters, I will be with you".  Kelly challenged us to create a card that shows your Deep Blue - the ocean, the sea or anything using blue as a predominant color.

I don't really have alot of ocean themed stamps so I went with the color blue as predominant.


I used several colors of blue oxide and colored heavily on my white cardstock.  I then used white embossing powder on the flowers and then did watercolor to bring out the layers of color.  I added the happy birthday in the center of the card.

Thanks Kelly for a great challenge.

The Project Bin

 It is beginning to feel like fall here in Kansas.  I am enjoying the cooler temperatures and the gorgeous colors of the trees.  


For my project this week I decided to make a treat box for The Project Bin using the stamp set "Pumpkin Spice". 


The box is a diecut from Lawn Fawn.  I assembled the box and then stamped a pumpkin from the stamp set and the spice container.  I stamped the pumpkin with yellow ink first and focused on the center.  I then used an orange ink to go around the edges.  I used a small circle die for the background and added the elements to the front of the box.

I am planning on filling the box with a Homemade Pumpkin Spice mix that you can find HERE.  I thought this would make a nice little fall gift.

Challenge Your Stash

 Today I have a card I made for our "Challenge Your Stash" group on Splitcoaststampers.  It is always so much fun to see what the hostess comes up with.  I was lucky enough to be the hostess this month and I chose "Leaves" as my challenge.  

I love playing with alcohol inks and developing a fun piece of paper.  I thought this made a beautiful background to my Lawn Fawn leaf die cuts.  I just used colors that reminded me of fall.  I am seeing alot more leaves falling in our area.  Not sure if it is because it is so dry or maybe cooler temperatures.  I just hope they don't all fall to the ground before we can see some beautiful trees.

PIP Challenge #2039

 This week over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies we have another challenge.  There is no sponsor this week but Pam is generously offering a $10 gift card to Unity Stamp Company.  Who wouldn't love to win that.  They have so many neat stamp sets there.  I love her digitals also which is what I used for my card today.

For my card I used the digital image "You Owe Yourself".  I printed off the image and then cut it out with my Brother Scan n cut.  I love that machine.  It is so great to use on digital images where you do not have a matching die.  I would like to say that I never buy dies but unfortunately that is not true. 

I colored the image with my copic markers and added a few enamel dots.

I hope to see your entries over at Pammie's Inky Pinkies
