New Email

Hello Friends,
My Yahoo email account was hacked yesterday and I can no longer access it.  I have updated the email link here, but if you were in contact with me previously, please note that the email is the same, except that it is @GMAIL.com instead of Yahoo.  Also, I may no longer have your contact information since I was unable to access my contacts.  I DO have your information if you are a current customer who has placed an order, but may not have it if we have just conversed via email.

Because I am manually adding all my contacts, the weekly newsletter will probably be late this week.  Watch for it tomorrow.

Vintage Leaves Birthday

Fall birthdays are so much fun!  Making cards with the rich colors of fall just makes my heart smile!  This card was made for a special friend of my family.  I needed a great card for a man with pop, but it still had to remain on the simple side; because men aren't fond of a lot of fluff.  LOL!  Normally, when we need a card for a man, leaves or trees are the design of choice.  This card is no exception.

I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the retired Diagonal Plate to make the diagonal score marks on the card front.  Then simply attaching multicolored leaves and stamping a birthday sentiment finished off this card.  The leaves are made with Vintage Leaves stamp set and cut out with the matching Leaflets Dies.  The sentiment is from the Wetlands stamp set.

The base is Cajun Craze, with a layer of Always Artichoke, then a layer of Very Vanilla.  The sentiment was stamped with Cajun Craze ink and the leaves were stamped with Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon, Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, and Elegant Eggplant inks.  You can see I used a multicolored technique on a couple of the leaves to create interest by dabbing Cherry Cobbler ink around the edges.  The actual technique is called Rock & Roll, but I wasn't happy with the effect, so I resorted to just dabbing the darker ink around the edges.  The top layer of leaves are popped up using Dimensionals.

Thanks to Wendy Klein for the inspiration for creating this card.  You can see her original design here.
