About Me

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

Well, it's back to work today for me. Sigh! I hope you had a nice Labor Day long weekend, if you reside in the U.S. that is. We were on a little get-a-way to the California Central Coast Wine country. It's our favorite place to go for long weekends. We were actually there for nine days and had a wonderful time. Tasted some excellent wines, great dinners and enjoyed our friends.

I managed to take some stamps and supplies and was able to make a few cards during the week. I've got a couple that I made using the current Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge. I'm posting the first here and I'll do another quick post with the second card so I can link them both to the challenge.

Using a couple sets from Concord & 9th, I made this fall themed card.

The background is stamped with the Plaid Background set using SU More Mustard, Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler inks. The pumpkin and leaves are from a new set called Autumn Harvest. The images are stamped in Memento tuxedo black and colored with Stampin' Blends markers. After coloring, I used the set dies to cut them out. The sentiment is a die in the set too. It's cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock and layered over white card stock.

The images for the inside are also from the set.

Thanks for looking,
