Fall Love for Hot Rods Boutique

Hey everyone its been a crazy few days but nothin new there right. Today I had a tea party lol. It was my aunts birthday and my daughter asked me if we could have a tea party for her so we did. It was a really cute. So my card for my DT also happened to be the card me and Ava gave my aunt today. I got the Whimsy stamp "Fall Love" from Hot Rods Boutique go check it out

My card is 5 1/2 square card on Stampin Up Yellow cardstock
I used patterned paper from MME "Cut & Paste: Adorbs" (also sold at HRB). I embossed the blue paper with Stampin Up "Cloudy Day" folder. The kite is using Lawn Fawn "Sunny Skies" stamp & die set. The tree is SSS "Givng Thanks". For the fence I used Impression Obsession "Fence Trio" die with kraft cardstock. The pumpkins are from PTI"Polkadot Parade #8" stamp & die. For the tree and pumpkins I used a mix of Hero Arts Shadow Inks in Soft Cantaloupe, Orange Soda, Red Royal, & Forever Green. As well as Jenni Bowlin "Brown Sugar". The dog is from a Penny Black set that I had already colored but not used for a different card. Lastly the speech bubble is a SSS die and the sentiment is from SP&Co "Mix n Match Sentiments:Family"
      As usual I kept the inside pretty simple.

I ontinued in the patterned paper and used the pumpkin and stamp set from PTI Polkadot Parade #8 in versafine Onyx Black ink & Hero Arts Orange Soda Shadow Ink.

Paper Smooches Mad Scientist

Hey everyone sorry i have been gone so long as most of you know my dad passed away from cancer September 21st and it has been hectic and surreal and bittersweet, but I couldnt have made it through without the love and support from my online crafty family I love you all. I am gonna jump right into todays card as I am a bit busy today I made a card for my aunt she is a scientist and one of the scientists she works with is going to a different company and so she wanted a card.

Its 51/2 x 5 1/2 card on PTI "Enchanted Eveneing" cardstock
I used patterned paper from DCWV "The Homeroom Stack" then created the rest of my scene with stamps. The "periodic table" type hexagons are from Paper Smooches (PS) "Vogue Abode" The computer, computer mouse, e-mail envelope &comp mouse arrow are from PS "Teen Routine" and the scientist, white mouse, beakers, smoke, & hazard symbol, are from PS "Great Chemistry. My sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp "Apothecary Labels" stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black ink and clear heat embossed.
I added glossy accents to his glasses, all the beakers and the computer screen and some clear Wink of Stella to the smoke. I didnt want lots of glitter on a masculine card so the Wink of Stella was the perfect amount.

I kept the inside fairly simple though

I just used more patterned paper, another beaker and smoke. My sentiment is from Mama Elephant "Up and Away" I masked off some of it. the atoms beneath the sentiment are also from Paper Smooches "Great Chemistry"

I get asked a lot what types of stamps I prefer for my scene cards and I have to say no matter what type of scene I am working on I always flip through my Paper Smooches stamps and find some to use they are definitly a great investment go check em out. Thanks for stopping by.XOXO
