Thank You Card and Announcement!

Hey everyone!!  I told you a little while ago that I had some fun news to share with you, and even though it is a bit late, here it is: I have been chosen as an ambassador for ADORNit!  


WooHoo!!  I love their crafty products and clothes.  I was sent a fabulous box filled with fun things like paper, wood pieces, Art Play Paintables, and washi.....so many yummy items that I can't wait to share some of them with you.

First up is this fun water-colored card that I made from some Art Play that I have had on hand.  I just love the quality and texture of these Art Play paintables.  They are perfect for adding color from so many different coloring mediums.

I used watercolor crayons and the yummy pink polka-dot paper is also some paper from ADORNit.  Here is a closer look at the card image.....

So, what do you think?  Isn't this a cute little card and I had so much fun coloring that image.  I hope to have more to share with you this next week, so stay tuned!

Hugs,
Amy

Autumn Greetings!!

Hello everyone!!  I am here to share a fabulous autumn themed card with you using yummy bakers twine from The Twinery.  There is a fall/themed week over on The Twinery blog and if you are looking for inspiration in that department, head on over and check out what the other designers have been working on.

Today I worked with some Cappuccino bakers twine to accent my Autumn Greetings card....

The pumpkin images are cut out with my Cricut Explore and I used the Piles of Smiles from My Creative Time for the sentiment.  I used the yummy Cappuccino bakers twine from The Twinery to tie around the stems of the pumpkins and then wrapped it around the top and the bottom of the cream cardstock as a border.  Here is a closer look......

For added depth and texture, I used some ink for shading the edges and also some pen accents.

What is your favorite thing about fall/autumn?  I have lots of things I love about it....it is my favorite season (well, that and spring).  I can't decide if I love the cooler sweater weather better or the changing leaves.  How about you?

Hugs,
Amy
