My Hubby Dave, Harvest Of Thanks and Video!


Before I show you my project for today, I am requesting prayers from you today. Yesterday, Dave and I traveled 4 hours from home. Dave had knee replacement surgery on August 15th and hasn't been feeling well, even before the surgery. It started on the Stampin' Up! incentive trip to Alaska so we blamed it on the food. A week later he underwent knee surgery and while recuperating, he still wasn't feeling well so we thought maybe the pain meds were messing with his stomach. Once off the pain meds (which he needed), he still did not feel well. His doctor ran tests and it was discovered that he has a large cancerous tumor on his left kidney. My prayer request is for today as he undergoes surgery at 1:30 pm eastern time to remove the left kidney. Please pray for successful surgery and guidance for the doctor performing the surgery, please pray that the tumor remains on the kidney only and has not spread to other organs (which they think so far) and please pray for Dave's recovery. I so appreciate all of the prayers, love and support we have received so far. Thank you!


So while we are away from home, I have posted ahead of schedule so you'll have something to see on my blog each day. We will be back home hopefully on Wednesday or Thursday if all goes well. I thought it would be appropriate to post a "harvest of thanks" card today to thank everyone for their continued prayers:



Doesn't the combination of the Falling For Leaves stamp set, the Detailed Leaves Dies and the Country Lane Designer Paper make a pretty card? I even added some of the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper underneath the fancy edging of my Whisper White Cardstock layer:

Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!


Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. This week we all creating "Spooky Halloween Cards" and this is my card:



I had a few die-cuts left-over from the October Paper Pumpkin kit and I thought they were perfect for today's spooky card. I started out by stamping a background using the Spooky Sweats stamp set. I also added a layer of some pretty designer paper from the Toil & Trouble Designer Paper. Don't all of these layers look great together?





Card Layers:
  • Card Base: Basic Black Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4".
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4".
  • Layer #3: Toil & Trouble Designer Paper 5" x 3-3/4".
  • Layer #4: Whisper White Cardstock 4-1/4" x 3". Stamp the background image repeatedly using Smoky Slate Ink and sponge Smoky Slate Ink around the edges of each ghost. Glue the ghosts in place using Stampin' Dimensionals. Glue the die-cut Spooky between each ghost. Stamp the sentiment using Gorgeous Grape Ink below the die-cut.

Country Home, 3 Cards & Video!



If you haven't purchased the County Home stamp set yet, WOWZA, what pretty projects you can create. These two cards are from a Sunday Share Facebook Live that I hosted last Sunday. I did get rave reviews for both of these cards. This is what the stamp set looks like:


Country Home
Item #147678
$21.00

Let's look at both cards more closely:


What you see on this card are the following products:
  • Country Home Stamp Set
  • Tin Tile Embossing Folder
  • Pearlized Doilies
  • Stampin' Blends Markers
  • Country Lane Designer Paper
  • Galvanized Metallic Paper
  • Classic Label Punch

Once I embossed the Galvanized Metallic Paper, I used a Sponge Dauber to add ink to age the paper. I also added some "rust" spots on the milk can which was colored with my Stampin' Blends Markers. Same with the cluster of flowers:



Card #2 was equally as much fun as the first card:


This one uses the following products:
  • Country Home Stamp Set
  • Delicate Lace Edgelits Dies
  • Chicken Wire Elements
  • Festive Farmhouse Designer Paper
  • Cherry Cobbler Double-Stitched Ribbon
  • Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine

I love the pairing of the Chicken Wire Elements alongside the ribbon and the die-cut Delicate Lace Edgelits Dies. I used two rows of the die-cuts:



For the coloring, I just used a Blender Pen and my Ink Pads:

Falling For Leaves and the Rolling Marbles Technique!


For today's project, I am bringing back one of my old favorite techniques. No I'm not losing my marbles but I did use marbles for the background you see on my card. This technique is called the Rolling Marbles Technique and if you keep reading, I have a video to show you how to do this!

All of the stamped and die-cut leaves are from the Falling For Leaves stamp set and coordinating Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies. Aren't all of the layers beautiful?

October Club Projects using the Winter Woods Bundle!



I featured the Winter Woods Bundle for my October Club projects this month. I just love the photorealistic trees in the this stamp set and that you can cut some of the trees out with the coordinating In The Woods Framelits Dies:


 Winter Woods Stamp Set: #147661 Clear, #147658 Wood
In The Woods Framelits Dies #147919
BUNDLE AND SAVE 10%
Clear #149992, Wood 149991


My first cards uses only Whisper White and Dapper Denim Cardstocks. Clean, simple with a lot of white space makes for a beautiful card:



The tree is cut with the dies in two pieces and then glued together. Love the little flaps that are cut out on the top layer so you can make the tree look so realistic. The two smaller trees behind the large tree were cut using Vellum Cardstock:




 Stampin' Up! products used on Card #1:






For Card #2, the trio of trees image was stamped repeatedly across my Crumb Cake Cardstock layer. Once all of the trees were stamped using Memento Black Ink, I used an Aqua Painter to add white ink to each tree. This had to be painted on quickly so the black ink wouldn't smudge:



The card was completed by adding a Vellum Cardstock banner, a Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper banner and a sentiment stamped with Balmy Blue Ink and cut with the Everyday Label Punch:
