Beautiful Autumn Layers

Monday's are fun days at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge and we are excited to see what you have to share.  This week is all about combing your stamps and punches or dies.  
I love Fall so I went straight for my Leaf Blueprint Framelit and Stamp set.  This is such a fun set to play with and layer.  


I love, love, love creating tags.  They are such a great place to start for a background.


The Handwritten Love Thinlits are a perfect layer.


I embossed the wheat stamp from the Fall Silhouette stamp set.  The "Autumn" stamp is inked from the Thankful Word stamp then smudged.  I love smudging images,


I stamped, inked and cut the leafy bits out.  Then I added some dimension and a little Clear Rock Candy Stickles.


I inked up the tag using one of my DIY Custom Blend Ink Pads.  Then spritzed it it to distress.  Add some linen ribbon and an Idea-Ology trinket and done!


Have a look at how you can stamp and punch.  You can go nuts and layer or you can keep it simple.  Looking forward to seeing your projects.

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
