The papers are different lengths (I just eye-balled it), but the same width (1/2 inch)...the pumpkin image is stamped on patterned paper and popped up...
Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake

Todays' card is so simple...3 circles, embossed with the Swiss Dot folder, with a layered stamped flower on the center...I chose the colors because I had some Pumpkin Pie ribbon and went to the Color Coach and found a 3 color combo that worked...the center of the flower has a red rhinestone in the middle...
Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Pacific Point...

Just returned from a short trip to my parents' house, that turned into a bit of a nightmare, with my 5 year old having to be admitted to the hospital with an asthma attack... so needless to say I'm a bit discombobulated! I just need to unpack (& find my camera to download some photos) get my son well, and prepare for this hurricane! So I will be back soon!

Along with the card was a surprise 15% discount on one item!!! (so I got the Inspired by Nature set--wait till you see what I made with it!)...
In true card maker fashion, I took off the card front and put it on my own Rich Razzleberry card, ready to give to someone else!
You can really see it in the photo, but someone took the time to adhere 2 rhinestones to the front of the card...

...for my birthday! This was the only handmade card I got this year (besides from my kids!) I have turned my Mom into a punch addict! She sent me this terrific card made from ovals punches and embossing folders! Love it! Thanks, Mom!

She wanted to stick with her wedding theme (black, white, Taken with Teal and Melon Mambo AND damask) so here's what I came up with...I used the Tulipe diecut...and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder...I think they came out great--all 40 of them!!!

I saw this layout in my monthly SU! demo only magazine and thought it was so simple...
The photo is of my children and my 2 nieces and nephew taken on my front porch on Easter Sunday...
I embossed the Medallion with clear embossing powder...
So Saffron, Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze, and a small piece of Baker's twine...the sentiment is a sticker that I just layered on cardstock and cut apart...

I ended up using all the colors, but it was a struggle! The only difference is that I used retired Cool Carribean instead of the new In Color Pool Party (since I don't own it yet)...the Cool Carribean panel across the center has 'Happy Birthday' stamped in the same color ink...
Rose Red, Cool Carribean, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla

I created a template using the 1 1/4 inch square punch...I actually punched out 3 squares and laid them out on a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 in card front so they were evenly spaced...then using the template I punched out the squares in the white card...
I ran some cardstock through the Big Shot and cut out 3 daisies (the largest size)...taped them to the back or inside of the card and trimmed the petals that were extended over the next square (try to make the inside look as neat as possible)...
The patterned paper that peeks though the daisies in just glued to the inside bottom of the card (4 x 2")
Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Deight

I found this layout on Krista Fenton's blog...the oval is a piece of watercolor paper, stamped in Staz-on ink, water colored with an Aqua painter, then sprayed with a fine mist of water so the colors ran together...then I took the Color Mister (the one that you stick a marker in and spritz the ink from the marker all over your project) with some Old Olive ink...
I love this layout--I have to try it out again!
Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Baja Breeze (color combo from the Color Coach)

Isn't it striking? I made this for my brother's birthday but decided that it was a little to 'kiddie' (so I made another card that I will post soon)...this uses a bunch of punched circles (some I even punched out the center) and layered on Basic Black...run thorough an embossing folder to make use of the 'Inlay Technique'...
Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White

I was panicked at first, but then figured I'd keep it simple with some prison stripes and a scallop circle covered in some chunky silver glitter...I love the way it came out!

The striped paper is non SU!, but everything else is...I'm so obsessed with striped and small patterned paper! I wish SU! would carry assorted colored striped paper...
Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Bliss Blue (for the flower)

I liked the rounded corners on the card--the fact that they are not ALL rounded is what stood out for me!
Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Green Galore, Peach Parfait

I diecut the Tulipe onto a sticky-strip sheet (that super sticky red tape) and then covered in in (retired) glitter...added some red rhinestones and I have myself a super sparkly Christmas card...
It was quite difficult to line up everything straight with that sticky sheet!

This is not my usual stamping style, but I'm trying to stamp out of the box...
