Count My Blessings, and Painted Autumn DSP
I am finding many uses for the 12 piece pack of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This is another creation my assistant, Michelle Wallace, and I have made.  We work so well together, and I am blessed to have such a talented lady to help me. 
Look for this card to be offered at all of my November 7, November 9, and November 11, 2017 Creative Therapy card classes.     

Recipe:
  • The base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Early Espresso, scored at 4 1/4.  
  • The Old Olive layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The smaller Early Espresso layer is 4 3/4 x 3 1/2, and the Crumb Cake layer (on which I stamped an image with Crumb Cake ink) is 4 5/8 x 3 3/8.
  • The horizontal layer of Early Espresso is 4 1/4 x 2 3/8, and the piece of DSP is 4 1/8 x 2 1/4.
  • The scalloped oval is, what else, Early Espresso, and the Very Vanilla non-scalloped oval is from the Layering Oval Framelits Dies.
  • The acorns and leaves are stamped in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla and cut out with my Paper Snips.  I made a bow with Linen Thread and attached it to this combo with a glue dot.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

Spooky Cat Stamp Set and Spooky Night DSP 
Another fun Halloween card made with the Spooky Cat stamp set and the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper.  I love how the paper makes card making so quick and easy, and this card uses very few products, because the DSP does all the work for you.  Well, kinda-sorta, just sayin'.
I offered this card at all of my October 3, October 5, and October 7, 2017 Creative Therapy card classes, and I'm happy to say it was a big hit.  To see my November 2017 schedule, click Here

Recipe:

  • The base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Basic Black, scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Very Vanilla layer is 5 1/4 x 4 and I stamped the words  with Tuxedo Memento Black ink, then I dry embossed it with the Woodland Embossing Folder.
  • The strip of DSP is 1 1/4 x 5 1/8.
  • The piece of DSP is 3 x 3 and the Basic Black square under it is 3 1/8 x 3 1/8.
  • The owl is stamped with Basic Gray Archival ink and the words on the owl's tummy is stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
  • The hat is cut from the DSP (this paper is so much fun, and therapeutic too), and popped up with a dimensional.  Just for fun I added a little bling to the center of the hat.

Colorful Seasons
and High Tide
Once again Dorriea outdid herself with this all occasion card.  She used Colorful Seasons and High Tide to complete her masterpiece.  I say masterpiece because aren't designs made with paper, ink, and stamps like magic?  So much fun!!!  
Colorful Seasons is a 24 piece photopolymer stamp set, and is so versatile that it can be used for way more than seven occasions.  
High Tide is a 16 piece photopolymer stamp set and is so perfect to have on hand, period.
Dorriea made the background by inking a clear block with Soft Sky and stamping directly on the Very Vanilla card stock.  The chair and words are from Colorful Seasons, and the birds, sand and grass are from High Tide.  Very creative, wouldn't you say.

Recipe
  • The base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  piece of Soft Suede, scored at 4 1/4.  
  • The Bermuda Bay layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Very Vanilla layer is 5 x 3 3/4.
  • The chair is stamped with Early Espresso and Bermuda Bay ink. The sand and words with Soft Suede, the grass with Old Olive and the birds with Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!
