Tuesday Cards

I'm still mailing two cards each Tuesday, although I don't always post them here.  Today's cards are the first cards with a Fall theme.  (The bright light "erased" the embossing from the card on the right...but it's really there.)

Freshly Made with a Gold Butterfly

With the sketch in mind, I thought of kraft and black, primarily because I had a pad of Canvas Corp paper in front of me.  And I had a delightful gold butterfly in my stash--I had tried out a new-to-me Thinlits die from Sizzix with some pretty metal product.   Joining in the fun at Freshly Made Sketches.

It's All About the Sketch -- Sunday Stamps

The sketch is the thing on this week's Sunday Stamps blog.  When I saw the featured shape, I thought of a die cut first and then one of the beautiful Prima butterflies next.  It works beautifully on a dry-embossed yellow piece and a pattern from an Authentique pad.

Sweet Sunday Sketch 286

It's another Sweet Sunday Sketch with some great shapes.


The designer paper is from a beautiful 6x6 Prima pad called "Bella Rouge."  The decorative circle is cut with a die from Spellbinders and "believe" is a die from PoppyStamps.

White Space for Tag Tuesday

I like making a white-on-white creation, and this tag was no exception.  The theme at the Tag Tuesday blog is "white space."  I chose to make a tag that is all white space except for the black accents of the word and the polka dots in the ribbon.

The tag was cut from white cardstock and dry embossed in a dots folder; "Scribbles and Splat" is a new set of Tim Holtz dies, and they were fun to apply in all-white, along with some white Prima flowers.

Freshly Made in Copper

I chose a piece of metallic designer paper for the focal point of this new Freshly Made Sketches card; the only negative is the difficulty in photographing it.  The photograph simply isn't true to color. 

The button was painted with copper spray paint and the leaf was die cut from the designer paper. The banner has been accented with copper dots.

Blues and Browns for Tag Tuesday

This week's theme for Tag Tuesday is "Blues and Browns"...and this is the tag I created.

Wrinkle-free Distress for the tag and several embellishments in the theme colors.   I spritzed it all with Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist.
