About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Thankful For You


I sewed all day today and finished a two quilt projects that I've been working on for a few months. (I will post some pictures later in the week after I deliver them since they are gifts) After cleaning up the sewing "mess" I thought I'd relax by doing some coloring before going to bed.

This week, Nance has a seasonal appropriate challenge theme up on The Paper Players blog. Coloring some fall leaves sounded perfect. This card went together super quick. I made it a little 4x4" square note card.

The Autumn Wreath is from Taylored Expressions. It's stamped in SU Archival Black and colored with Zig Real Brush Watercolor pens and an aqua painter on Tim Holtz watercolor paper. It's cut out using a Die-namics double stitched square die. The enamel shapes are from Doodlebug.

On the inside, I stamped this sweet squirrel in the lower corner and left the rest of the space to write a note.

Stamps: Autumn Wreath set by Taylored Expressions
Paper: SU Crumb Cake card stock and Tim Holtz watercolor paper
Ink: SU Archival Black and Zig Real Brush Watercolor pens
Other: Die-namics Double Stitched Square STAX dies, Doodlebug enamel shapes, SU linen thread, The Big Shot

Wishing everyone a fabulous, fall week ahead. Thanks for looking,
