September Mystery Items

We did another mystery items swap for the SSINKspiration blog. Tobe from The Craft Sea send me three fun items to use. The Black Glimmer Paper is so fun to use. The wooden embellishment and Happy Halloween card are from the Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Project Life cards & accessory pack. I just needed the banner punch, Tangelo Twist card stock, and Tombow glue to complete my card. I love how the Project Life kits are great for memory keeping and quick cards.

Friday Favorites

Today we are sharing our Friday Favorites on the SSINKspiration blog. I am sharing two of my favorite items for fall crafting: the 2014-2016 In Colors and the For All Things stamp set.

I actually created this card last fall, but it is still one of my favorite cards. I made my own pattern paper by stamping the leaves. I used a watercolor brush directly on the rubber stamp and on the paper to vary the colors.

Here is the finished card:

Quick and Easy Card

I love using sketches to make quick and easy cards. Even if you do not follow the sketch exactly, it is a great place to start your creative process.

I wanted to try the new sketch from Mojo Monday for my card, but I knew that I would not follow the sketch exactly. I stuck with the standard size card base because I wanted to cut 2 card bases from my sheet of card stock. The other base will be used for a birthday card. I also decided to use two circles that fit with my stamps.

Supplies Used:
Crazy About You stamp set
Watermelon Wonder ink pad
Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper stack
In Color Envelope Paper
Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight card stock
Big Shot & Circles dies
Rhinestone (on sale this week!)
