Fall Wedding

I love fall and winter weddings because you can use non traditional shapes and colors.   My good friend is getting married today and her colors are purple and gold (mixed with other fall shades).


 I used the Memory Box best wishes die on kraft cardstock and backed the wishes part with gold shiny paper.


I sponged ink around the leaves and accented it with the gold cord for more shimmer.


 Here you can see the layers better, the best wishes is popped up with the purple leaf.

Spider Webs




Remember this card from a few years back?  Around this time of year I always have people asking for a spider web embossing folder.  All the ones I have used in the past have become retired, but Taylored Expressions has now started making their own line of folders.


I still have googley-eyed spiders, so let me know if you would like one of these folders for your Halloween cards.  I have some cool Halloween dies from Impression Obsession too!

October Card Class

One last card class before the Christmas season is here.
I have a couple seasonal cards mixed in for the fall for this workshop.


These first 2 cards are using the "brayering" technique to get the rainbow effect.
We have done this before in class, but this time with a little twist.


Its impossible to see in the flower photo, but we will be using a little Wink of Stella 
to add some sparkle.  (Even though lilacs don't sparkle... its a subtle sparkle.)


We will also be doing another shaker card (after popular request) but this 
one is a little different than how we did them in the previous class.
I was excited to find mini star sequins!


I am loving the new enamel dots that are out now, we will be using them on the
 flower card below.
