TSOT 580. Theme- Flight

 Hello!! I’m so glad you stopped in.  I’ve been trying to keep up with the challenges. Some weeks I’m on the ball and some weeks I’m not. Last week I had things on my blog and I forgot to add it to the demo site. If you didn’t get to see my card you should go back and look at it. I made it for my grandson whose birthday was October 9. Decided to pull out some of my art impressions Stamps for this week  had a hankering to do some water coloring. I fussy cut  2  of the birds one this one. Pretty soon we won’t be seen too many birds. They don’t stick around in Ohio too terribly much in the winter. We’ve had unseasonably cool weather where I live but today it’s a lovely day and I’m seeing on the front porch swing enjoying a cup of coffee while I work on this. My garden is probably done. We planted some late peas, but with the colder weather I’m not sure they will do anything. Lots of blooms, a few pods, but no peas. Well I guess you don’t get anything at all if you don’t try. I hope you have a lovely day and enjoy the fall season. Our trees are turning lovely and it’s a busy day here on our farm. Happy Stamping


Optional Theme: Flight

 Happy Tuesday, here it try Stampin on Tuesday we put up new cards. Sometimes we use the inspiration and sketch, Sometimes we don’t. I didn’t have any monsters so I decided to use my robots (Stampin up) that I have. My card isn’t really like the sketch.  It does have two main images sort of like the sketch does but since I decided to use my Lawn Fawn pop up platform die I guess it doesn’t really look like the sketch much. This card is for my grandson whose birthday is 9 October. The robots sort of looks like they were made out of Legos so that’s why I used it. He is crazy about building with Legos right now. 

What will you do with the sketch and theme? I’ll look forward to seeing what everyone makes! Have a lovely day, any day when you get to Stamp is a lovely day! 😊

The second picture is of the card laying flat. If everything added doesn’t go any higher than the backdrop on the card it will go in a regular A2 envelope. Since I made things stand up higher I’m going to have to use a bigger envelope. The base of the platform pushes up as it’s two separate pieces that are connected together;  that’s how the card is then mailed. I like it,  it’s a  fun die to use and make many different card designs with it.

TSOT 578

 Hello, I’m glad you stopped by.   Fall is such a nice time of the year.  I’d say it’s one of my favorites.  It is a busy time though, what with the garden finishing up seems like every time I turn around there is something for me to can.  I’m waiting on apples now, my shelves in the basement are waiting for applesauce.  Which season do you love the most? 

I decided to pull out my Concord & 9th turnabout.  When I do these I usually start with a 5.5 square piece then trim it down and use the left over strip for decorating the inside panel of the card.  I know I could have used crushed curry, pumpkin pie, and greens but I was in the mood for greens and brown.  I’d love to see what you do with  this sketch and theme.

 Autumn is such a lovely time of the year! Our theme is pumpkins so I pulled out my art impressions stamps to make this scene.  I also turned the sketch on the side. Thanks for stopping in, I do hope many of you will give this sketch/theme a try. 

Theme -  Pumpkins

TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
