Autumn Wonder.

Keeping in the “Crimper Theme” at Gingersnaps I made a fun “Q & E” card.
I crimped the outside cream panel in two directions and tapped with my DOT’S Stoneware Texture stamp with distress inks.
The Oka Leaves are done, one was crimped and one was inked with alcohol inks on a pop can.
The center was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. Autumn Wonder stamp is from TAC.

I used Distress Inks on Glossy cardstock and Embossed my image in Black embossing powder.
My stamps are from 100 Proof Press and DRS Designs.

Distresses Color Blocking Fall Cards

Yesterday I received my stamp order from “Mark’s Finest Papers.
What wonderful stamps these are, and great service too. These stamps are from the new Fall release . Thanks Mark’s Finest, I love them.
I’m using two technique’s called Distressed Color Blocking from Feb, 2011, and Cuttlebug Smoosh from Oct, 2007 from The Technique Junkie Newsletters.

Don’t these two technique’s just fit together so well? I also added alittle “Crimped Pop Can”, leaf to the Fox card witch was colored with Alcohol inks. 
My distress inks were Pumice Stone and Rusty Hinge. My stamps are from “Mark’s Finest Papers”.
Have a wonderful afternoon and thanks for stopping in. Hugs V

New Punches

I’m back, and home again.  Went Truck shopping for Dad’s birthday. He’s been at this since early this Spring. I’m sooo, glad this is over. We went all the way up to Green Bay, and then ended in Appleton Wisconsin to find just the right (RED) Truck.
Anyway, I picked up three new punches along the way but haven’t been home long enough to try them until now. So Today I’m posting two punched fall cards. Hope you enjoy them.

This is the large (All Over The Page) punch from Martha Stewart. My stamps are from Hero Arts and the inside (phase) is from DRS and butterfly is from TAC.

Second card, punched with an (All over the page) punch. But this time I did a lot of measuring to get this to fall right in the middle of the card. But it was sooo, very worth the extra work.

The large leaf is Marvy punch and punch on vellum and inked with distress inks, and stamped with Memento’s ink Inside shows the ribbon through the punched work.  My stamps are (front) Hero Arts and Stampin’ Up, inside is DRS and Michael’s dollar stamp. Hope you enjoy them, have a wonderful Fall Day.

GC- #118 “Spicy Supply Challenge”.

                            “Crimpers”, is the Theme for the Spicy Supply Challenge.
Wow when was the last time you have used your crimper?
Remember back when these wonderful tools came out? I too couldn’t wait to own one, and when I did, I used it all the time as it was our only way to (attempt) to have an (Embossed) background.
I remember spraying regular cardstock with adhesive and adding brown fabric to it and running that through the crimper to have a “Faux Corduroy Fabric” look. Ok Never Mind, I’m dating my self.

  For My Card; Stamps used, DRS “Autumn Has Arrived“, Inkadinkado “Pumpkin and Vine”. Spellbinders Oval Dies, and EK Success Large Flower Burst punch.
This challenge runs until Oct. 09 2011 so there’s time to look up your crimper and join this challenge. Thanks for stopping in today. Have a great Sunday afternoon.
