Love this stamp set - Wetlands

Masculine cards are something I can always use and that just don't always get made but I can get one made quickly with stamp set.  I love how versital it is, it is great for sponging a background and for just stamping.  Here I made a paper sunset look, some DSP paper and some cardstock stamped on to give texture.  Used Deco Labels framelits and the Stylish Stripes embossing folder to add dimension.  Colored the goose with markers after stamping on the layered papers. Oh yes I needed to tell you that I used the new chalk marker for the white up on the neck of the goose. It is available in the holiday catalog, this marker works well on the dark colored cardstock. Since it's Monday I'll say:  have a great week!!!  :)

Special Packaging

Re-made this round box into a fancy decorated Wedding Gift box.  The bride had sunflower/fall flowers --this was an outside wedding- all weddings are special and this one was no exception.  It rained till the bride came out and then at the end of the ceremony the sun decided to peek out around the clouds before starting to drizzle again. Realized I hadn't posted a picture of this soooo since I've got weddings on my mind I thought it would be nice to show.  Hopefully this was one wrapping that didn't get thrown in the trash!!!!  Have a great day.

Blocks, baby wipes, reinkers= Fall stamping fun!!!!

okay the first card I have to share with you involves all the items listed in the post title!  Blocks you say, well yes, doesn't every stamper play with them?!  this time though you won't need to add any rubber to it,  that's right just stamp your block right in the stamp pad and then directly onto the card stock.  Every one you do will have a little bit of a different look and you can either ink it a lot or just a little.  Next on this card I used an alcohol free baby wipe to create my own "stamp pad"  lay your wipe on a cool whip lid (or something like it) and then add drops of re-inker colors of choice, you will want them close enough to sorta blend the colors.  (is that as clear as mud?  I hope not)  the number of drops really depends on the size of the stamp you'll be using.  This is a really fun technique especially with leaves as no two are alike, either in real life or this kind of stamping!
This next card isn't hard it just has a lot of layers...  I'm taking these two card to my monthly group were Margaret lives and I've decided they need a name.  hummm I'll have to ask them today to think of something! 
This card has a folded back piece on the front to add just a little interest.  I used a new stamp set called Truely Grateful it is fall related without being leaves.  Either one of these cards would be good to send to men as I didn't use any girly girl colors!  That was the request- fall cards, men cards.  So what do you think?  will they pass... I'll find out this afternoon.    :)
