Lots of new Cards

Hello All!

Thinking this post will be short and sweet. Succinct, to-the-point, no fussy words like succinct.. 

I have been very busy this past couple of weeks. Creating, coughing, stamping while coughing, coloring while, well... coughing, sneezing, yada, yada, yada. We have all been sick with a cold for the past two weeks. We just keep passing it around like a game of 'Hot Potato'. 

Anyhooooo, here are my new cards..

Autumn's Beauty
I just love Autumn. The colors and vibrancy is just a treat to see every year. Here is an image that was printed on vellum then colored on the back with alcohol markers to get a 'stained glass' effect.  The sentiment says it all!! 
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"


Stamping on Velvet
This card was actually heat embossed on velvet. The silver detail adds a bit of sparkle and I think compliments the wooden 'Merry Christmas' and pearls.
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"


Hidden Presents
My son just turned seven years old and of course why would I look for wrapping paper that I thought I had. Well none to be found and just a couple of hours to get things done. What to do! Well instead of wrapping paper I created riddles on note cards that tell where the gift is located in the house. In the end, I think it was better to have him find his gifts then just open them. I think I may have started a new tradition!
Card Size: 5.5" x 4.25"

ROY G BIV Birthday
This stamp by Tim Holtz I just had to have. It literally took my breath away and then this see-thru Papertrey birthday die was a perfect complement to such a colorful background. You will see more of this stamp soon!! One of my favs!!

Celery Stamping
How about stamping with celery to create rose patterns.
Card Size: 5.5" x 4.25"

1,000,000 Thanks
This card was more of an experiment. Still like it with gold and green background. Stamp set is from the retired Stampin' Up! Word Play set
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

Distressed Polka Dots
 This card was created using Distress Inks blended together to get this great polka dotted background. A black stripe with a 'Thank you' sentiment goes perfectly with the black retro circle stamp. 
Card Size: 5.5" x 4.25"


Thank You Bump
This is called the 'bumping' technique. This technique is offsetting the stencil to create a shadow effect. I sprinkled brown embossing powder to add some texture. 
Card Size: 4.25"x 5.5"

Keeping Warm
One of my new favorites. Background is stamped, embossed, then bleached to show the stars and border. Added some pink pearl embellishments and mittens of the same color. The sentiment is perfect for this card. 
Card Size: 4.25"x 5.5"

Absolutely Fabulous!
This is set of note-cards I have colored from an amazing artist.
named ladyegg. This set is colored only once then scanned and copied on cardstock. Stamped with a sentiment and DONE. 
I just love peacocks.. Their colors are brilliant and how ladyegg depicts them using zentangle art is amazing!!

Well so much for short and sweet and well... Succinct.. Take care all and we will see you soon with more from TheGrandStampede!
