Technique Class - Thank You card in Fall colors


I've been out of mojo for a while.  I think I was homesick when I was looking at the leaves that changed the colors.  I collected some particular ones and showed them to some people.  I realized that I appreciate more and more the nature and the life since I started card making.  There is no leave in the same colors like every card that we make is different. We create beautiful cards for our heroes and their families from the heart.  Even though we make some multiple cards out of the same design, each one is different. Because it is handmade.  Isn't that awesome?   

Anyway, I had to work very hard to get my mojo back because I had the OWH Cardmaking Party at Susan's place yesterday.  You will know, it doesn't come back instantly like when you turn on the computer (of course it depends on the computer, too).  I still couldn't upload my photo so I scanned what I wanted to share with you. 

Every one who participated in the OWH cardmaking party yesterday made and took the card after learning the techniques.  It was my appreciation for them.  While I was demonstrating the techniques one on one, I made one card each time, too.  I still have about 20 cards to complete.  These will be  AnyHero cards for the month.

OWH VCMP Sixth Challenge

The challenge HERE on this stop is to make a kiddie card using the following tic-tac-toe board.

I created a ladybug card.  I stamped around those ladybugs and colored in red only the little ones. I stamped the large ladybug three times on a red cardstock and cut out three different pieces to layer on top each other. Then I cut out parts of the head and the body from a black cardstock.  The wings are raised with dimensionals.  I punched out circles in black by the Owl builder punch.  I colored the background with Copic cool shadow marker.

I used the first row of tic-tac-toe board - Things with Wings, Stamping and/or Coloring, Using Punches or Dies.

I wonder how many legs does a ladybug have?

OWH VCMP Seventh Challenge

Marilyn's challenge is HERE to create a card using any sketch with a Fall theme.  Her suggestion is that your card can be I Love You or I Miss You card, or even a Thinking About You or Thank You, but not a Thanksgiving card. Use a leaf motif with fall colors - rusts, yellows, golds, red, dark greens, etc. 

Here is my card to share.  I stamped the leave with Versamark watermark stamp pad and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  Add colors by using stamping daubers.


I used Freshly Made Sketches 101.
