Thanksgiving Cards

My Thanksgiving Cards for this year.
Same card/different look
The label was laser printed and foiled.

I used: 
*Leaves are from Dollar Tree.
*Anna Griffin Minc for foiling
*Deja' Views Global Treks Cardstock for everything on the front. Yep, that's the name! 
 I got this cardstock from Ross dept.store years ago and never used it until now. It's double-sided and  really does have some beautiful designs in it for fall or for masculine cards.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Thanksgiving Card

This card was made with a napkin and glitter. It's an old technique but I'm just getting around to trying it. I love how it turned out. Unfortunately it was impossible to get a good picture.
Here's a closeup. You can kind of see the glitter a little better here.
Label done with the Anna Griffin Minc foiling machine
Here's the Napkins I used, for Tuesday Morning.

Here's the link to the technique I used:

Thanks for looking!!

Happy Veteran's Day!

Thank you to all the Veterans for your service to America and for protecting our freedom. I hope that on this day, you get the recognition that you truly deserve!

Also, I would like to pay homage to my brother Leonard, for his service in the U.S. Army as a Vietnam Veteran and for his service in the Peace Corp. May he continue to Rest In Peace.  I miss you big brother.

I made this card for one of my favorite Veterans, Dana, U.S. Army. I kind of have her spoiled. She expects a card every year now!
I used:  All Occasions embossing folder by Craft Stash
             Spellbinders Romantic Vines die
             Tonic Scalloped Punch
              Inside frame and sentiment are from the Silhouette store
              I used my eBrush to paint the flowers.

Go hug a Veteran today!

Ahoy Matey!!

Creative Card Angels - card request for a little one suffering from Leukemia.  I hope it helps him to know that there are people pulling for him.
I took a cut file from the Silhouette Store (I own it) and changed it into a print and cut for the pirate. I used the Spellbinders Flower Fun for the embossing.

Get Well Card

I made this card using the Spellbinders Draping Vines Frame die set. 

Here's close up of the embellishment flowers I made to go on the card. I could not get a good picture but they are really pretty.  The sequin flowers are holographic. 
I've had the mini gemdrop embellies for about 4 years now and could never find use for them. I glued them on top of the flower sequins.

Here's a picture of the die set.
Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Fall Y'all!!!

Sweet Sunday Sketch card challenge #293

I decided to do a fall theme for this card sketch. I used the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities  Floral Labels Four embossing folder. I sanded the flowers and vines, then  I used a Wink of Stella gold glitter pen to highlight the embossed areas.  The sentiment is done in copper foil using my Anna Griffin Minc. The leaf and acorns are stickers from Dollar Tree. (yes, Dollar Tree!)

It is hard to photograph the foil because of the reflection, but hopefully you can see it enough to get the idea. It's really pretty.

Challange Sketch
Have a great day!

Sympathy Card

I decided  to participate in a few card challenges, especially after seeing my two buds Treva and Felisa turn out so many pretty cards for these challenges. These women are incredible and really crank out the cards almost everyday (I'm not promising that! lol) When you get a chance, check out their blogs, The Scrapin Diva and Treva's Craft Corner.

This card is for Sweet Sunday Sketch #292 challenge. Oh and this is my very first challenge.

We had to use a large circle, a rectangle panel and an accent strip:
Close up.  I used Stickles on the black flowers to make the sparkle

Thanks for looking and have an awesome day!
