More Autumn Stamping

Okay, I am getting into these fall colors! It has only taken me around 50 years to learn to "like" the colors of fall, but as I learn to be more creative I have learned that I am not bound by traditional color of any season. It is up to me to decide with which colors to play! Here are a couple more items from autumn stamping before I dive into Christmas.

Halloween Stamping

A couple of fun Halloween projects. Images are from PTI - in case you haven't noticed, I am a BIG fan of their acrylic images. The little basket is just right for Halloween treats. The die cut is also from PTI.

Autumn Abundance

I am only beginning to like Autumn. My entire life, the beauty of this season has escaped me. In addition to leaving behind carefree summer fun, it is the need to start hunkering down for the cooler, wetter season that I protest! That said, I am learning to look at my world in a fresh perspective, as I try to capture in my art the colors and designs provided by Mother Nature. I'm not there yet, but I'm working on it!

I CASED this card from
Niki Estes, a designer for PTI. You can see her card here.

This weekend is my sweet niece's 30th
Birthday. I loved making this card for her. The numeral stamps are from Hero Arts and the sentiment from PTI. Those HA stamps are great for adding a bit of bling! Happy Birthday Cass!

Just Because

Just Because! One does not necessarily need an occasion to create with rubber (acrylic) stamps. For me, the best surprises come when I am least expecting one. This card will find it's way to a friend who I know has been struggling recently, with hopes to lift her spirit, in only for a few moments!

More PTI

More from PTI. These images from their 3rd Anniversary Set, Round & Round. Sadly, I discovered PTI too late to earn this set, but a fellow stamper sold me an extra she had earned. This color combo is a big step "outside the box" from my early stamping days. Love trying new color combinations!

Rhinestone Floral - Out on a Limb

I fell in love with these beautiful rhinestone flowers, knowing PTI has the most perfect images for this bling. Sure enough, the rhinestones were perfect for these images from PTI's Out on a Limb stamp set.

Easter 2010 - CAS

As I was in the final stages of planning and packing for a spring trip to Mexico, it occurred to me I had not made any Easter cards, and I would be returning the day before Easter, so that wouldn't leave me much time! I found these die-cut chicks in my stash and made a little egg using some designer paper from PTI and my Nesties. Got these mailed out the day before we left on vacation. Simple but cute!
