Fall Fun!!

Happy Sunday everyone! Did ya miss me? LOL! My mom went home today :( but we had a blast while she was here. And can I just say again how much fun I had at the NKOTB concert---I'm begging my hubby to take me again this time in Philadelphia!!!! I haven't had that much fun at a concert in ages---just awesome! I'm working on a bunch of projects today to share with you this week so stay tuned, okay! Sorry I missed out on World Cardmaking Day, but hey, that's everyday here at my house, lol!!!

My cards today use the new stamps from Storage Units, Ink and More. I really have had fun with these new sets because they're so easy to mix and match and to make your own scenes with. This first set is called "First and Goal" and I had to make my lil' football player a Washington Redskins fan in the burgundy and gold,lol (BTW they bettah beat the Eagles today)! I stamped and colored him with Copics and I drew in a field for him to stand on and sponged the sky. The helmet and football were cut out and popped up with dimensionals. I added some diamond glaze to the helmet for shine also. I wanted to make a big statement on the card by using a large football image. I didn't have a template so I hand drew it and cut in half---if you can see the texture on the football, I actually did that with plastic canvas. I didn't have the right CB embossing folder so I used the plastic canvas (with square holes) and ran it thru my cuttlebug like a folder and it worked, lol! I inked it up a bit to show off the texture. The gold background on the card was also embossed, this time with an actual CB folder and then I rubbed ink on top too.

The second card uses the "Giving Thanks" set. Aren't these lil' Indian kids the cutest with their lil' doggie, love 'em! Pretty straightforward card---I stamped out the images and everything was colored w/ my Copics and the dog was cut out and popped up for dimension. I added lots of shimmer with stickles too. The leaf bg paper was done using the leaf stamps from the "Bountiful Harvest" set that I just stamped randomly in 2 different color inks onto kraft cs. The other dp is from Cosmo Cricket's "Mr. Campy" line. I used ribbon from PTI and added a leaf button to the knot. Such a cute Thanksgiving card, me thinks--hope ya like 'em both!

Have a great Sunday & I'll see ya back here tomorrow!
