Have you tried the Seasonal Layers thinlits? All I can say is that for the first time using it, I’m in love and I don’t even know what I’m going to make next! HA! Does it look like a Fall card to you? It does to me and isn’t that all that matters? LOL
Join us this week at Stamp Ink Paper and showcase your Fall themed cards.
Tree Branch. Many may think that the tree branch should be sideways but, guess what? It’s not a branch in my eyes…it’s a really skinny tree and the leaves/flowers are falling off. But yes, it can be used as a tree branch, a skinny tree branch (HA).
Make a Couple Pop. To give the card a little pop, I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on’ to two of the flowers. When I say that the photo truly doesn’t do the card justice, I really mean it. Gosh, I wish I could send it to one of my visitors, just so you can see for yourself.
Paper Tree. The thin tree was made with the thinlit as mentioned above and it wasn’t stamped, but cut with the Wood Textures Designer Series Pack. All of the product used to make this card is listed below. If it’s not there then you missed out because it’s either retired or no longer available.

Today’s Celebrate card is for the weekly Stamp Ink Paper color challenge. This card will go into the #ImBringingBirthdaysBack 2017 stack. However, I must admit…I’ve gotten a little behind. So most of the cards, for February have become Belated Birthday cards. Nevertheless, they will go out and for each card that is late I’m putting a little treat inside each card.
As I say each week, my Stamp Ink Paper teammates have a talent that is out of this world! Their design can be duplicated and made your own. You can also enter one of your cards and enjoy sharing your card with the world.
Banner. The CELEBRATE banner is not a die-cut, it’s a snip cut (LOL). After it was stamped the scissors were used to create the banner. I followed the curve of the letters and cut a V from corner to corner on each side. It came out better than I thought it would.

Now more than ever I try so hard to make sure I am kind to everyone. When I cross paths with someone I don’t know I always make sure to say hello and find something to compliment them on. Whether it be their shoes, hair, blouse, shirt, even their smile. I do this because the world is awful and one kind word will go a long way. I’ve decided, I’m going to start handing out my cards to complete strangers. Inside there will be a short note for them to pay it forward and give the card to someone who can use a smile. What would you do if it was you I handed this card to?
When I give this card out, I’ll be sure to let you know about the whole experience. I’m so excited to find someone too! I’m not sure how I’m going to approach the person, I’m just gonna do it!
Non-traditional Sun. The challenge called for the sunset and my sun (burst is more like it) hasn’t set yet and that’s okay. It’s all about what inspired me and the star-burst from Kinda Eclectic stamp set was the one for me.
Balance the Eye. When I decide where and how to place an item on a card, whether it’s a stamped image or even an embellishment, I always try to eye-ball the card to see if it seems balanced. I look at the card with one eye closed. I’m not sure why I do that, but maybe it has something to do with my military training…LOL. The eye-ball should have a focal point and to accomplish that goal I punched a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper with a 3/4″ Circle Punch. Go on and close one eye and look at the card…doesn’t the gold glitter draw you in?
