When I first saw this sketch, I thought of snowflakes. I have a container that contains 2 long past snowflakes kits along with miscellaneous snow flake dies and stamps I have colleted over the years from MFT. I pulled it out and found this beautiful blue glitter paper in the box. I inked the background with some light blue to make them stand out even more. I love the result and think I will make a few more for my Christmas stash.

I have been in a fall frame of mind although it is 90 here in FL today. These colors go so beautifully with the fall theme. I found the brown shimmer paper in my stash and I think it looks so nice embossed with the leaves. The grays that I used as shadow on the brown and on the stamped leaves are subtle but make the design stand out. The stamped leaves, sentiment and other papers are from Taylored Expressions.

I love these beautiful fall colors. We don't have them here in FL, but being from OH, I remember them well. I chose this stamp from Taylored Expressions and colored the greenery and flowers with the colors. I used a shiplap background stamped in white on kraft cardstock. I'm sure one of my fall birthday ladies will enjoy this one, no matter where they live!

When I first saw these colors my reaction was, how elegant. I chose the curved lines so that it wouldn't seem so formal. I'm thinking of using this as a sympathy card. I needed 3 of them this week, so I need to replenish the supply. I'm not sure where the background die came from nor the sentiment. They were in my collection with no names with them.

When I saw these colors, I imediately thought of retro Christmas ornaments. I pulled out this stencil set from Taylored expressions from last year and I am loving the way it turned out. I used light gray cardstock and watermelon red, blue rasberry turquoise, cilantro green and sea salt gray. Doesn't that make you want to get a snack? I love the way it turned out with the embossed silver cords for a little glitz. I'm sure that I will make a few more of these.
