Acorns are my most favorite fall item!  I started on the base of the card.

Wow embossing powder in metallic copper sparkle powder.

I embossed several leaves and acorns and colored them with Copic Markers.  
For the acorns I used shades YG91, YG95, G99,

Wish for This Day- Memory Box



Hello there! I'm sharing my first blog post for Memory Box
I created a slim line shaker card. These cards measure 3 1/2 by 8 1/2. 
Create your card base at 31/2 by 8 1/2. Trim your top layer with the same measurement.
Ink up this panel using shaded lilac, wilted violet and chipped sapphire distress oxide inks. 
Splatter with some water than white paint.  Allow to dry.  
I stamped the branches from Winter Greenery
Stamp Set with forest moss and evergreen bough distress oxide inks. 
Die cut the branches than set aside.  

 After the top panel has dried use the smallest star from Shining Star Die Set 
and cut four windows.  Trim acetate and adhere behind the star windows. 
 Ink up a piece of card stock with
evergreen bough and die cut with Wish Airy Script word die. 
Emboss and trim the sentiment from the stamp set Grateful Autumn.
Using foam tape, adhere the top panel to the card base. 
Be sure to add shaker sequins before. 
Adhere the die cut branches and trim off  edges. 
Adhere die cut sentiment and embossed sentiment. 
For a finishing touch I added some rhinestones and glitter glue. 
Hope you give it a try!

Merry and Bright Mistletoe

Hello there!
I'm stopping by today to share a couple of Christmas cards


Yes, I cannot believe I am already getting started on Christmas cards!
But when this stamp set arrived I could not wait to get it inky!!!
I used my Mini Misti stamp tool and stamped the mistletoe onto
Copic friendly cardstock. Do not remove the stamps from the Misti. Wipe them clean.
When you are finished coloring the florals, lay your paper in the same
position on the misti, lightly dust over the mistletoe with a static tool
and emboss with gold powder. I used WOW gold super fine powder.
I used the same embossing powder and embossed the sentiment 
and background cardstock. I splattered the background with some 
white and gold paints.

I followed the same steps to create this red card. For a finishing touch I added
some shimmer with clear stickles.
Here are the Copic Markers I used:
Mistletoe leaves: BG75, YG67,YG17, YG25,YG11
Red berries: R37, R35, R30
White Berries: G40, G20, W00

Thanks for peeking!!

I created a few cards and I used the stamp sets Candy Corn Dress Up and Going Batty

Than I placed the Sun Rays stencil over the cardstock and 
brushed on some white ink. I added a few splashes of water.
For the field I used crushed olive, mowed lawn, and forest moss 
and added a few splashes of water and paint splatter.
  I die cut the field using Kinetic Curved Hills.
For the tombstone, I used hickory smoke and black soot.
I wrote RIP with a gel pen.

V12, V17, C1, C2, C5, C7
E25, E29
For the wood fence I used Wo, W2, W4, W6.
I heat embossed the sentiments.
I added some shimmer using clear stickles.

For this next card I inked up the Sun Rays stencil using wilted violet,
fossilized amber, and twisted citron.
Than splattered the same inks onto the background.

I inked up the bottles and injured bat with Copic Markers in shades
V12, V17, Y13, Y17, YG21, YG25
