Season Of Thanks

Love the new fall set suite called Come To Gather.
Here I used the new designer paper called Come to Gather 
layered on the Rococo Rose and then the Very Vanilla base.
I ran some of the lovely 1/2" Rococo Rose gathered ribbon around
before adding to base.
I stamped the pumpkins and the leaf as well as the sentiment from the 
new Gather Together set on vanilla card stock in Memento Black .
I cut the sentiment out with the Stitched Nested Labels dies
I cut them out with the matching dies called Gathered Leaves dies.
I colored the leaf in Rose and the pumpkins in Calypso Coral with 
my Stampin Blends markers. 
I hand cu the wheat stalk and the solid leaf with cut from 
Terracotta Tile card stock.
I really like the Rose and Tile colors together!
New color combo!

Hope you have a fab day and thanks for stopping by!

Nautical Bags For Class

I decided to do a nautical theme for my gift bags
for card classes this month. 
I always make or decorate something for my 
guests to bring their cards home.
I grabbed white and crumb cake bags from the dollar store
 and used my Come Sail Away designer paper for the background.
I cut the Nested Label in watercolor paper and 
took my aqua painter to Balmy Blue ink
to watercolor it.
I stamped the lighthouse in Night of Navy and the 
\anchor in Balmy Blue and cut them out with the matching dies
from Smooth Sailing. 
I also cut the wheel in Crumb Cake and the banner in 
Balmy Blue. I stamped the sentiment in Navy ink on the banner
from the A Big Thank You set.

Hope you enjoy your day!
Thanks for stopping by!

FF0040 Vintage Frame Sentiment

For vintage I went with the Heirloom frames/dies and
the Woven Threads DSP for the 
I cut the designer paper and then took my finger nails and roughed 
up the edge to distress them. With a peek of the 
Pretty Peacock print on the other side showing,
I stamped the sentiment on Sahara Sand in Pretty Peacock ink.
The sentiment is from the Beautiful Promenade set and I also added 
a little painter splatter look to the paper with the 
stamp from Gather Together in the new 2019 holiday catty.
I inked it up in Rococo Rose.
I added the pearls I colored with the
 Rococo Rose Stampin Blends marker.
I cut and embossed the frame with Terracotta Time card stock.
I popped it up on dimensionals. 
All was placed on a Sahara Sand base to finish.

Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by!

PP455 Magical Ariel

Oh, I love this card and since my 
mermaid is Ariel from the Little Mermaid, 
it is the perfect birthday wish for a kid (of any age)!
I stamped my mermaid in Memento Tuxedo Black 
on thick Whisper White card stock and hand snipped her out.
I colored her with my Stampin Blends markers.
I used blends of Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake in her hair.
I used ivory for her body. I used a combo of colors for 
her tail- Bermuda Bay, Bronze, Pool Party, and Night of Navy.
I cut the circle out of my white background and stamped the sentiment 
from the same set called Magical Mermaid in Memento.
On a piece of white place behind I used my sponge daubers
to add ink from Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy.
I layered all this on the Bermuda Bay base.
I added some sequins from Woven Threads sequins pack.

Hope you can play along this week over at The Paper Players
and Joanne's fun challenge!
