It's a one layer card, pretty easy to make... I first began by sponging the background colors in a 'sunset' and grass pattern, then i added the tree, and used the small 'leaf' or 'flower' stamp from the Sheltering Tree set in different colors to make the fall leaves, then added Wink of Stella Gold Shimmer to the stamped leaves to give it some sparkle!
Lastly, i added the rake and the "Thinking of You" to finish it off!
For this one, i was finally able to use my Foxy Friends stamp set for the first time! This set is one of the most adorable I've ever seen! you can make so many different critters with it! For this one, i made a little woodland fox who came to say hello!
I used the Woodgrain embossing folder to emboss the Tip Top Taupe piece for the background panel, then stamped the trees in Pear Pizzazz, 'stamping off' the first time for the largest tree, then full ink strength for the second tree, then stamped again on a scrap piece, then cut out that tree...
On another scrap piece of Very Vanilla, i stamped the fox, the stump, the mushrooms and the sentiment letters, then either cut them out or punched them out, then created this scene. i added some strips of Early Espresso to finish off the look of the card

This card was made for the Anything Goes Challenge at Stampin' Royalty this week!
I made several Sympathy cards for an order that i needed to fill.
For this one, i used Sahara Sand cardstock and Crumb Cake ink, highlighted the shells using a White Chalk Marker, and lowlighted using the Crumb Cake and a Blender Pen.
I then used a sponge to create a mottled 'sand' effect on the panel, dabbing it between the shells. I also spattered white and crumb cake on the panel for even more visual texture.
After stamping and coloring, i ran the panel through my Big Shot using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
The sentiment and frame stamp is from the Rose Wonder set.
Love the colors, patterns,everything! (and hey, there's cake!)
This one was actually pretty easy...
I just layered cardstock and patterned paper from the A Little Foxy DSP Stack, then stamped a single image from the Swirly Bird set on a Whisper White panel, then stamped the same image on a strip of white paper. I will probably make a tutorial very soon on how i lined it up.
Then i stamped a sentiment on top of it and used Dimensionals to pop it up.
I created borders using the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape and circles punched out of Smoky Slate cardstock and glued in a line. to finish it off i tied some Calypso Coral Bakers Twine (retired) around it! There are lots of substitutes you can use for the bakers twine, since that particular one is retired.

Every so often i will go into my craft room and try to use as many scraps, retired, or lonely misc. products that I've had lying around the room forever as i can, so they do not feel unloved ;o)
About a week ago, i spent a good part of the day doing just that, and i was able to get several cards made in the process. i made duplicates of all of these cards, so that took a good amount of time as well, some i made 2, some i made 8, depending on how much of each product i had.
I thought i would share them here and hopefully give you some inspiration!
I took a simple approach to my card this week....we'll pretend that it WASN'T because i ran out of time..... ;o)
oh, ok, so truth be told, that WAS the reason haha... however, once again, this shows that not only can you make a simple but cute card, even when short on time, but also when you don't have a lot of supplies!
I basically cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock in half vertically, to create a 4 1/4 x 11 piece, then scored it at 5 1/2, then again at 2 3/4 on one side. that creates your Z-fold. I then just cut some squares, stamped and colored, then i added washi tape from the Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape set, and a panel of white on the inside, cut so that it is hidden . I added black bakers twine under the image panel, just enough so that it wraps around the card and can be tied when closed.
