I'm making a collection of monogramed stationary. First off I used this layout from Splitcoast HERE. I used two background stamps. Linen BG in creamy caramel and See you Around wheel in marigold. I used barely banana on the back and certainly celery for the front. Not quite navy is the base of the card and the layered for the "K". I sponged Cool Caribbean around the white and stamped the K in black. I used glue to apply glitter on the K. The ribbon is So Saffron. Silver brads finish off the card.

So today started off a little rough. I couldn't get myself up out of bed and am not feeling well. BUT I did hear some great news that Stampin Up has changed their Angel policy which I am thrilled with!
We had a challenge in our hostess club to do masking. I chose Moose You to make a fall card for this. I used plaid background in marigold morning on So Saffrin paper. The background is the actual card so I cut the so saffron 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. I used Purely Pomegranate as the framing background. Then used Whisper white for the image. I stamped the porcupine first in Chocolate Chip. Then stamped it again on a piece of post-it note and cut it out. I didn't cut out the stickers on him just his body. I then stamped the Moose in Creamy Caramel and the Deer in Close to Cocoa. I used just a scrap piece of paper to mask out the words below the animals. I used Purely Pom and Marigold Morning for the flowers and Always artichoke for the stems and grass. I then roughed the edges and sponged around the sides and top with Creamy Caramel and around the bottom with Always Artichoke. Friendship is stamped with Purely Pomegranate.

This was a package I made for my hostess club group for such a successful month last month.
I used wild wasabi and linen background stamp. Then cut out the stamp from True Friend and popped up another cut out stamp from True Friend. The Thank You stamp is from True Friend as well. I tied whisper white grossgrain around it. The pens are R.S.V.P pens that I stamped a piece of whisper white with purely pomegranate and wrapped inside. Taped a cut out stamp and tied whisper white grossgrain around it as well. :)
I know that is a very vague description and I'm sorry for that. I'll put up detailed instructions in the next day or two. :)

For this card I used Autumn Harvest and masked the pumpkin while putting leaves and gourds behind it. I colored in using markers and my white gel pen. There is stickles randomly on the items. The angled piece behind the main image is ticket punched with leaves stamped on the corners and colored in with my blender pen and the lids of the stamp pads. I used a corner decorative punch I got from Michaels and cut out the corner part. Both the background and the image white pieces are stamped with the background stamp Linen in Creamy caramel. IRL it turned out perfectly. This is one of those cards that I will not be able to let go of, especially since I only had one small piece of that designer paper.
Stamps: Linen background, Autumn Harvest
Cardstock: Chocolate chip, Whisper white, purely pomegranate, Blue Bayou, Random DP
