Scenic Route Autumn Girlie Road

Erin Lee Creative Enjoy the Ride, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Circle Stax, The Ton Stamps Autumn Foliage, Pink Paislee Pick-Me-Up Patterned Paper

Check out the moodboard at AAA Cards Challenge:

These leaves are from a marathon hour of stamping and die cutting multiple colors of The Ton Stamps Autumn Foliage last month.

I kept it as CAS as possible, tucking a couple of them under the sentiment strip.

It's a similar look to what my car grill or windshield wipers have been decorated with lately. ;)

Thank you for visiting today!


You Are A-Moo-zing

I've always loved this Tracey Hey set and had a great excuse to get it this past spring.

I don't color often, but these images make you want to try!

Tracey Hey (Alpaca Pals) Deja-Moo Stamps, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Circles, Pink Paislee Pick-Me-Up, Copics


I love the photo prompt at Time Out Challenges.

The way the pattern changes on the purse is such a cool look!

I attempted a plot twist pattern as well, by cutting half of the feature die cut circle and exposing a fun patterned paper.

I cut a full patterned circle and back up what was fussy cut.

These wonky stitched circles have distinct markings, so I matched them up to appear seamless.

Thank you for your sweet visit today~

You Lift Me Up


Pink Fresh Studio Lost in the City Stamp, My Favorite Things Outside the Box Level Up

I haven't used this image in awhile, so I brought it out for AAA Cards Challenge (the windows naturally mimic the white sections of the balloon inspiration).

With purple and blue Copics, I used a spotlight technique.

I first cut out the center section and colored only that portion (sponged a bit of distress ink in the center too).

I used a thin copic black pen and ruler to add building outlines back, and edged the arch a bit.

I inset it back CAS, within the original stamped image (which was inked in a few colors)

 I dolled him up with a gold chain.
