Rustic Triangles

Hey all! Hope it's going well! I have a card to share today! Finally...I know! It's just been quite busy around here. We have a fall festival this weekend where we show our chickens, ducks, and also show baked goods, photographs, and a pumpkin, so that is going to take up time this week, and then I have school, and we have to stock the front yard with pumpkins to sell, and wash and price squash and so on, so it is busy. But I have managed to squeeze in a bit of papercrafting time! Yay! And here is some of the results of that time:

This card is for the Hero Arts Stamp Your Story Inspiration Contest. I was flipping through one of the catalogs and found a pretty color combo which I used here. 

I inked up the triangle border from the Hero Arts "Borders and Arrows" set from their new Holiday Catalog with various ink colors letting them overlap and mix which I think gives a rustic look. Maybe it's just my silly imagination. lol. 

I stamped and inked repeated times until I was happy it, then I stamped a sentiment. 

Above is a detail shot of the triangles. I think they are gorgeous! 

I'm going to try and maybe write down a schedule for me to write posts, or maybe I'll just schedule some, but I would like to try and be around more!

'Till next time!

Jesus saves!

Lots of Dots

Hello! I'm just popping in with a quick card. I know my blog has been kinda boring, since I haven't been posting much, but my family owns a pumpkin farm right here, and when it is pumpkin season, then most of our free time goes to harvesting pumpkins, so my card making has been somewhat neglected. Anyway, here is a card that I made awhile ago for a submission call but it was rejected.

All the dots are actually brads that I just adhered all over the card. :) 

Got to go!

Jesus saves!

Avery Elle Flowers

Here's my entry for this month's AEI♥U Challenge. It was a sketch challenge this time.

And here is my card:

I used Photoshop Elements and made a bunch of flowers overlap, and printed it out and colored it all in. 

There is actually a vellum strip where the gemstones are, but you can't really tell. Vellum doesn't seem to show up well in photos. 

Jesus saves!
