More Fall Fun

I took a few minutes to participate in the OCC Challenge, which was a sketch.  I needed this--I am having so much trouble putting cards together!  So it was quite helpful.  I was also able to stamp a few images with my new GinaK stamps!  Here is today's challenge submission:

Whimsical Autumn Apple Basket 09-13-08 2

A real fun sketch, and a fun design to water color!

  • Stamps:  Whimsical Autumn, Gina K
  • Paper:  Creamy Caramel, Basic Grey Recess & Boxer,  Watercolor, Garden Green, Riding Hood Red, Choc Chip
  • Ink:  Stazon, lots of Earth Elements, Sahara Sand
  • Acc:  Corner Rounder, Brads, Aquapainter

I finally sewed the little curtains for the inside of my hutch yesterday, and since I had my sewing machine out already, I thought it would be interesting to sew some of the scraps to some cardstock pieces so I would have them at hand if I wanted to play!  So this was my first attempt.  It uses the daisy from Flowers for Daisy, another Gina K stamp:

Flowers for Daisy 9-13-08

  • Stamps:  Flowers for Daisy, Gina K; Essential Sentiments, MFT
  • Paper:  Nat Ivory, Kraft, Shimmery White
  • Ink:  Stazon Black, Sahara Sand, Ruby Red, Bravo Burgundy
  • Acc:  Taupe Ribbon, Small Oval Punch, Scallop Punch, Just my Type CB folder, sponge dauber

And finally, just a fun Halloween card:

Happy Halloween 9-13-08

  • Stamps:  Holiday Blitz, EFP, Seeing Spots
  • Paper:  WW, Ghostly Greetings, Old Olive, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
  • Ink:  Stazon Black, Pumpkin Pie, Going Gray
  • Acc:  Black Grosgrain, Black Gingham, Pumpkin Pie Marker, Small Square Scallop Punch, 3/4" Square Punch, Eyelets, Nesties, Scallop Punch, Circle Punches, Eyelet Setter, black marker

The orange gingham ribbon was made by coloring the black & white ribbon with a Pumpkin Pie marker and quickly drying it with my heat tool.  A fun way to customize your ribbon colors!!!  Thanks for stopping by!
