Another Autumn CASE

It is always fun when I have time to stamp out more than one card in the same day.  Because these cards on the last two posts are easy, quick cards, I was able to do both this afternoon.   For my card I used sentiment words by ODBD and the leaf image is ? (Didn't save the manufacturer info on many of my stamps and now that I have them sorted according to theme, I don't always know who to give credit to).
Here is Deb Felt's card that I cased:

The Glory of God is Seen in Autumn

I am always in awe of the artistry of God in Autumn.  The leaves and colors are so incredible.  Love it.
The DP has gold embossing so I stamped and embossed the butterfly (Our Daily Bread Design) with gold.  Scripture is digital by Doodle Pantry. Card is a CASE of Carlsie S card at OWH http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/2011/09/birthday-bash-case-charlsie-s-napa-ca.html

Christmas Lights Wiring

Don't you hate the frustration with Christmas lights each year?  Well, here is some wiring that wasn't as frustrating.  I forget that I have these wires in my stash and then when I bring them out, I vow to use them more often (Usually don't, though )   This image is by Meljen Designs and it just had to have some wiring on it !

Autumn Butterflies

Love this butterfly stamp by Our Daily Bread Designs, love the verse by Verve, and love Autumn.  Doesn't get much better than that.  I used the SU  Kaleidacolor ink pad for the multicolor stamping.

Fabulous Fun Friday

After several gray days, the sun is back out and it looks like we will have a fabulous day.  I love Autumn days.  (I know I sound like a broken record, but I love Autumn.  I made a couple Fall cards yesterday.  I will post them separately.  Here is my first one.  Lots of cutting but I like how it turned out.

The Great Pumpkin

Love that Charlie Brown movie.  I didn't grow pumpkins this year.  Wish I had and the grandkids wish I had.  Last year we had pumpkins that weighed 50 - 55 pounds.  Those were Great pumpkins too.
this image is a GKD stamp.

Multi Media Challenge

I was out of my comfort zone when I took on a new way of  stamping (for me) - using many forms of art media.  I used acrylic paint, gold paint, twine, metal embellie, cloth tag, staples, DP.  I actually like how it turned out but probably won't go this route too much 'cuz I'm not enough of an artist to think this way.

The Last Two Cards For The OWH Birthday Bash

How's that for a long heading?  Well, these are the last two cards that I made in response to the challenges at the OWH Birthday Bash and the last two that I will be posting for that occasion.  Of course I will keep making cards for OWH  but this is it for the Bash.
The first card above is done with a digital by Clear Dollar Stamps.  I love it because it is pre-colored.  Sentiment is part of the set.  Challenge - K & K sketch challenge http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/2011/09/birthday-bash-2011-sketch-85-sponsored.html
Card below is also for a sketch challenge.  I used the digital sentiment offered at OWH
Challenge : Sketch plus Any Hero Card http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/2011/09/vcmp-challenge-9-sketch-86.html
also entering in challenge 13.  Can I do that? O - old DP, W - white CS, H - Hero sentiment - http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/2011/09/vcmp-challenge-13-think-owh.html

Cards For Operation Write Home

I am having a great time (as I take  time) making cards for the OWH Birthday Bash Challenges.  I am posting two cards here on this post and a few more tomorrow.  The first card is an Any Hero Card for the sketch challenge http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/2011/09/vcmp-challenge-9-sketch-86.html

I had printed up several digis and never used them so I colored this eagle for this card.  Also used up this brown background star DP.  The white star BG was done with a Cuttlebug folder.
The next card is for the #7 challenge - non-traditional valentine, http://mdcochran.blogspot.com/2011/09/virtual-card-making-party.html  I used the Card Patterns sketch 132
Thanks for looking. (And any kind comments. LOL)

Baby Bear

 I have had this digi by Cheeky Radish colored for quite some time.  Nice to finally use it. The XOXO is by our Daily Bread Designs.  I made this card for the OWH weekend celebration and the challenge at http://itwashereaminuteago.blogspot.com/2011/09/garanimals-welcome-to-stop-one-on-owh.html

CAS Thankful

An Any Hero card to be sent to OWH .  So glad for this organization.  So grateful to those in our military.
 I kept this card very simple. Stamped the image in brown and then added just a touch of chalks for color.

And last Back to School card this year.  I know I said that before, but this time I mean it!
For this card I made some wood BG on the card stock.  The stamp is rouge de garance .  The rest is DPs.
I used four star eyelets in the corners.
