I really am trying to "be still". When I am really anxious about something, I get alot done that I have been putting off, so I guess all is not lost. ;0).
Today's card is a potpourri of ideas that have been banging around in my head:
All cardstock is Stampin' Up! Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, White. Scripture stamp is also from SU. The flower image is from a Heidi Grace set. Ribbon was purchased at Walmart and Rhinestone drops at JoAnn's. The So Saffron layer was run thru the Cuttlebug. I used the Threading Water Edger from Fiskars and White fabric paint on the ribbon.

The image is one I have had for a really long time, I purchased it from Close to my Heart years ago. I woke up the other night, thinking.......I could color that spray with fall colors. This is what I came up with, I know the reds in the spray look sort of pinky, but they are really a nice fall red. The card base is Riding Hood Red, layered with Cream Confetti that I ran thru the Cuttlebug, using the Swiss Dots EF. I layered the image with YoYo Yellow and Brilliant Blue cardstock. (all card stock is Stampin' Up!) The borders are embellished with pearl dew drops.
Thanks for looking again today and be sure and check out the important blog links mentioned above! Have a happy day and God Bless!!
I made this card for the swap my sisters and I do. The stamped image is from Inkadinkado. It is a Birthday set that is so cute! Cardbase is Green Galore, layered with Lovely Lilac. The panel to the left is Pink Passion, run thru the Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday EF. All aforementioned cardstock is from Stampin' Up!.
Pattern paper is DCWV. Brads are from JoAnnes.

Poetic Artistry, as one of her Mojo challenges. I decided to try it and I must say, it was a challenge for me. As you know rulers/measurements and I don't always get along! (I can take you computer apart and put it back together again, but don't ask me to measure ANYTHING and have it come out okay!) So, my DH cut the paper for me! (He's a contractor, so he CAN measure correctly!) The rules required that we make 4 cards using one 6 x 6 piece of double-sided DP, (and of course other cardstock for the base). After giving him a kiss for helping me out, I then set out with the sketches and below is what I came up with. I liked how they turned out.
As you can see, I struggled with the lighting, I shot pics in the evening and didn't like them, so I waited until morning and still ended up with shadows. Then the wind started to blow and I was worried about not getting these posted in time.........but life goes on ;>).
All cards started with a Ruby Red base, I layered with Cameo Coral and Retired Stampin' Up! DP (Sorry). The stamp sets used are Absolutely Fabulous and Oh, So Lovely. Embellishments include; Ribbon-Stampin' Up!, Brads-JoAnn's, GinaK Designs, Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots EF, Treading Water Edger-Fiskars and of course Close to Cocoa ink from SU.
This was definitely a great challenge ! I encourage you to try one some time. Have a great day! God Bless!
