Make Pie | Stamping Bella Watercolor

Hello there!

I’m aiming to share a few fall cards with you before I start my Christmas series. So today I’ve done a watercolor using an adorable tiny townie from Stamping Bella. You can check out the process video here:

Here are some still shots of the finished card:

Front

Isn’t she adorable?!? Stamping Bella is one of my favorite companies and her Tiny Townie line is just the cutest of all.

And that sentiment – what an original take on the phrase. It’s bound to put a smile on any one’s face.

Thanks for stopping by to check out the card. I’ll have a few more fall cards and the Simon Says Stamp November – 10 Cards, 1 Kit coming up soon.

I’m loving these Lawn Fawn scalloped dies. I could literally use them on every card.

Super simple, but it gets the job done.

Is it me…or do those puffy cloud borders just work on every card?!?

8 front

Shaker cards are one of my favorites to make.

9 front

These stickers are so pretty – I want 10 more sheets of them.

Using dimensionals is a really easy way to make layered stickers look full without being too clumpy.

This girl is super cute – she was my favorite sticker from the bunch!

10 Cards | 1 Kit – Stamptember Card Kit

Hello!

It feels like forever since I’ve talked with you, sorry for the long absence – I had a craft show last Saturday and was working on making stock for it. Anywho I’m back now and sharing with you the part 1 of the cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp – Stamptember Card Kit.

Here are some close ups of the cards:

1 front

That candy cut out ephemera is super cute…

1 inside

and the cut-apart sentiments made finishing off the inside of the cards super simple.

1 close up

Super fun, gorgeous colors!

2 front

I thought this card was really fun, I really liked creating this scene and the holographic boarder gives it that perfect extra something.

2 inside

2 close up

I almost forgot about them, but adding those clouds was the perfect final touch.

3 front

These lawn fawn scalloped borders are becoming one of my new favorites and layering them can add a really detailed look to a super simple card.

3 inside3 close up

I do love my dimension!

4 front

I was so excited when I realized the stickers were the same size as the printed paper. This card really just created itself. I LOOOVE the shaker bubbles, they are super simple and add so much to the design.

4 inside

A single line of bears completes the design.

5 front

Masking is always a super fun way to create a scene, I love pealing away the masks and seeing the design come to life.

5 close up

I can’t find that Martha Stewart confetti for sale anywhere – I’m going to be so sad when I eventually run out of it!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards – I’ve got part 2 coming up shortly.

xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween

13 Days of Halloween – Bonus Day

Happy Halloween!

I’ve got one last Halloween video to share with you today. I picked up this Tim Holtz Day of the Dead stamp set and couldn’t wait to use it, so of course it ended up being the last card of the season. They’re super creepy but that woman is also pretty in a way too. You can check out the video here:

And here are the close ups:

1 Front

This ended up being one of my favorites of the series. I love the simple black and orange and although I don’t usual do much mixed media type of work I LOVE the stamping over the dictionary page. (That’s about a mixed media as I get :))

1 close up

I again used paper from that pebbles 6×6 pad – same I’ve been using the whole series to line the envelopes.

2 Front

I liked the little play of the coordinating purple in the script washi and every card is better with some of those crystal fusion sequins on it!

2 Card and envelope

And who could resist this charmer offering them a rose…

Thanks for checking out my cards – hope you’ve had a great Halloween season!

xoxo, Sarah

Halloween Happy Mail

Hi-ya! Happy Thursday – we’re almost there 🙂

Today I’m sharing with you a video of some Halloween happy mail I made for a friend of mine. She’s received it now, so I’m safe to put up the video and you can check it out here:

The process is pretty self-explanatory, but if the video went too fast and you have any questions about how I put the envelope book together let me know in the comments.

Here are a few close ups:
