I have been moving over the last couple of months so I have done no blogging or stamping for that matter. It has been a huge ordeal for me and took longer then I thought it would! I'm sad to say I had to pack up and store alot of my stamps/paper and accessory stuff too. I do have my current SU with me though and plan on posting to my blog as soon as I can! I've missed stamping and creating very much! Happy Thankgiving and Many Blessings~ Cherie

One last scene card using Serene Silhouettes, brayer and some bleach!
I kinda messed this one up around the sun but saved it enough to use as a card I think! But we are always our own worst critics! I cut a long post-it to use as a mask for the hillls and sponged those adding Soft Suede just above them.
Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Made By You.
Paper: Midnight Muse CS, Old Olive CS, White Glossy CS, Copy Paper.
Ink: Stazon Black, Summer Starfruit, Pumpkin Pie, Primrose Petals, Old Olive, Island Indigo, Midnight Muse, Soft Suede.
Accessories: Brayer, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Sponge, Watercolor Brush, post-it notes.

For this card I sponged some Summer Starfruit ink through the middle of the panel first and then brayered Primrose ink on the bottom half. I then added Island Indigo ink around the edges toward the middle, applying very lightly through the middle and finished with Midnight Muse.
Each time I use my brayer on Glossy CS, I'm amazed at the different outcome. Each color added with different amounts of pressure on the brayer offers a different look each time! For these cards I used very light pressure on the brayer but rolled over the portion of CS as many times as it took to get a smooth, no line application. As in the other two cards, bleach painted around the flowers to highlight and dotted around the moon with a toothpick for stars!
I also used the punched out reverse circle mask to sponge some yellow where the shadow of the full moon would be.
Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Made for You.
Paper: Midnight Muse CS, More Mustard CS, White Glossy CS, copy paper.
Ink: Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Island Indigo, Midnight Muse, Stazon Black.
Accessories: 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Bleach, Watercolor Brush, Brayer, Sponge, post-it notes, toothpicks.

Another card using Serene Silhouettes, my Brayer and some bleach. This started out being Summer Starfruit, Pumpkin Pie and Primrose Petals with the circle mask over the Summer Starfruit at the top BUT I ended up going over it with Midnight Muse which gave it more of a glow and darker for night time. I like that you can still see some yellow and orange through the middle. I went back over the moon with some bleach then added a little Summer Starfruit. I also highlighted the birds and branches with bleach using a watercolor brush and again dotted some bleach around using a toothpick for stars.
Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Made for You.
Paper: Soft Suede CS, Old Olive CS, White Glossy CS, Copy paper.
Ink: Stazon Black, Summer Starfruit, Pumpkin Pie, Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse.

Using Serene Silhouettes, my Brayer and some bleach I created a few scene cards...this is the first one. I used a toothpick to dot the bleach around the moon and used a watercolor brush to paint the tree branches with bleach as well.
A post-it was used to mask off the tree line and to create the moon mask.
The main image is framed with copy paper instead of CS to cut back on the weight with four layers!
Stamps: Serene Silhouettes.

Today's card uses Serene Silhouettes and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets!
The Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack makes it so easy to layer or create a mask for these Framelit shapes as I did here by piercing and then cutting out along the smaller pierced size in this shape. I used Vellum CS for this so I could line it up along the outer edge and sponge just the center part.
Again I mixed Very Vanilla and Whisper White CS for this look.

Simple Birthday card using lots of embossed texture and a little Designer paper!

Postage Due and Lovely Little Labels Thank You using Travel Journal Wheel and Viola's Lace Wheel! Love these wheels which are in the 'Fan Fair' product suite as they go so well together! The yellow flower is a punched scallop circle in So Saffron CS, cut in a spiral and rolled on a wooden skewer to form the flower! The background paper is Birds of a Feather DS paper. The Summer Starfruit and lighter Island Indigo colors look so nice together! Everything stamped in Crumb cake ink....yummy!

Today's card uses Postage Due and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets. The large collage image was stamped on both Vanilla and Shimmery White CS using Soft Suede ink. The vanilla piece was embossed using the Designer Oval Frame and then torn around the flower image and layered over the Shimmery White image. The flower was stamped and cut out and then layered over the Wide Oval punched insert in the frame to make it pop!
I was working on another project using this set and decided to frame the corners on this image using the 2cent postage stamp. I liked how it looked and thought I'd try it on this card.
I love mixing Vanilla and Shimmery White or Whisper White cardstocks for contrast!
The accent color on this card is suppose to be Raspberry Ripple which is the ink color used on the flower, however the CS I grabbed is Riding Hood Red not Raspberry....oh well!
The very end of the Banner Framelit is stamped with the postage stamp and layered over the center of the matching postage stamp to blend in!

A late night card I made using Papaya Collage, Lovely Little Labels stamps sets and Travel Journal builder wheel. The bird in the bird cage was cut out of the Birds of a Feather DS paper. The background striped paper is from the same DS paper!
I love the little postage stamps from Lovely Little Labels and the punch that matches!
I did a little sponging with Soft Suede ink and mixed Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Shimmery White cardstocks together for this look! The cardstock in the middle of the frame is leftover textured Vanilla which I just happened to grab!

A Cherry on Top hostess stamp set! I inked up just the middle part of the 'plate stand' with More Mustard marker and stamped it to make the cone part and then stamped the top cupcake parts on top of each other....A giant ice cream cone!
I love using images differently then intended especially when the outcome works out like you want it to!
I used the Essentials paper-piercing pack to embellish the main images.
The cherries are stamped in Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green.

New Hostess set...A Cherry on Top! I decided to use the 'stand' for a cake plate. I layered three Delicate Design embossed Shimmery White CS pieces on Chocolate Chip CS, cutting each layer down to resemble a tiered cake. The embossed layers are attached with Dimensionals on top of the Chocolate Chip CS. The cake stand was inked with both Primrose and Raspberry markers. The Birthday greeting was stamped on pink Twitterpated DS paper and cut out!
Simple card that was a little outside the box but still in the same theme as the set!
Stamps: A Cherry on Top.
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Gumball Green.
Paper: Shimmery White CS, Chocolate Chip CS, Pretty in Pink CS, Twitterpated DSP.
Accessories: Big Shot, Delicate Designs embossing folders, Cherry Baker's Twine, Dimensionals,
Another card using 'A Cherry on Top' hostess stamp set! For this one I tried to think a little bit out of the box by turning the plate stand cover up side down to use as a cherry bowl. I stamped just the very bottom of the plate stand to use as the bottom of the 'bowl' then covered the 'bowl' with designer paper, textured CS and a strip of 1/8" Taffeta ribbon.
I stamped a bunch of cherries by inking the cherry stamp just at the very corner of my stamp pad and using a post-it rounded at the corner for masking then going back with the Gumball marker and drawing in a few stems. Way faster then inking the cherry stamp with markers.
I did mix up my 'reds' for this card! LOL....Framelit is Riding Hood Red as well as the stamped Cherries. The ribbon is Real Red Taffeta and the Baker's Twine is Cherry Cobbler but it all looks fairly good together with the last two reds being only very small amounts!

Cottage Window with a few added flowers! The Shelf is from Little Additions stamp set as well as the flower pots which are the lamp shade turned upside down from the lamp stamp! The flowers are from Cottage Window.
I started to watercolor some Summer Starfruit ink around the window and decided to sponge some on instead. I have to say....sponging using the new style pad is a little different, it takes some getting used to! Thus the sponge mark directly under the window...LOL!

The Window was stamped in Early Espresso ink, water colored with Soft Suede ink.
