JDS-Autumn Leaves

  Time for another challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps.  I went with Autumn Leaves 
this week,  it has a lot of lovely images but I was drawn to the
sentiment below which is one of my favorite:
I made a notepad holder that highlighted the sentiment, I used
a fallish patterned paper and printed the sentiment on
vellum and quickly covered it with Trandescent Embossing
powder.  I added some adhesives for decoration.

Anything Goes at Jan's Digi Stamp Challenge, so join in the month long challenge 
and take a look at the beautiful cards my teammates have made.

Welcome Baby


I had both of these cards made and ready to go weeks ago awaiting the birth
of our newest grandchild and got to use one last week.  I made the letters on
my Scan N Cut cutting out several layers, the block die is a nesting
eyelet die with the center cut out and is also a few layers.  Hello baby 
is a Stampin Up sentiment.  Patterned papers by Bo Bunny.  I used the
top card for our new grandson!

JDS, Fresh from the Farm


  I went with Jan's pre-printed images from her Fresh From the 
Farm set and arranged several of them on the computer
before printing.  I cut them out with my Scan N Cut.  I cut
the sentiment out with  a die.  I layered two coordinating
patterned papers by Photo Play: Mad Plaid Fall and
then embossed them together for the look above.

Tuxedo Card


I made my first Tuxedo card for a dear friends birthday.  I was quite happy
with how it turned out.  I gave cutting it out one try and called my hubby 
to take over for me.  I may try it again for someone very special but it
was one of the more complicated fun folds I have made. Papers are
by stamping up.  Flowers by MFT, Mouse and sentiments  
by Lawn Fawn. Unsure who the happy birthday die is by.

Summer Sampler


I did a summer sampler swap with 8 talented ladies and just got
it hung on the wall, it was on a shelf but I wanted it displayed where
it was more visible.   Mine is the flower with the lady bugs. The 
talented ladies that have blogs are: Patti, Shirley, Vicki and
Sally.  I'm looking forward to our fall and winter swap.

Have a good day!

Spanner Panel Card

 Mrs. A has a fun tutorial on her challenge this month for a  Spanner  Panel
Card and I just had to try this new to me fun fold. 



First opening:

 Completely open:


The directions were actually quite easy to follow, just took a little time. I had this panel 
already colored and in my snippet pile for years and it fit the colors for the 
challenge. I added patterned paper from Honey Bee -pretty close to a stripe, and
it matched my image,  a few die cuts and it is complete, just waiting for the
perfect sentiment when I am ready to mail it.
