Here is a neat little card I put together the other day. I didn't come up with the idea of the punch pumpkins - I've seen them all over the place so I'm not sure who had the original idea. They are made with the large and small oval punches and sponged with soft suede ink. The leaves were stamped from the Season of Friendship set (although leaves from any stamp set will do) in Versamark ink then cut out. The linen thread and kraft cardstock contribute to a rustic feel. Everything is Stampin' Up! but the button.

Season of Friendship - Winter

I am still loving this stamp set!

Heather Nichols is always stamping on kraft cardstock, and I was inspired to try it myself. It gives it such a rustic feel. For this card, I hand-cut the snow drifts and sponged them. After I took this picture, I also added glitter to the sponged areas and it looks even better, but I am too lazy to take the picture again! :) This card is nice and flat for easy holiday bulk mailing - another bonus.

World Card Making Day - PTI Challenge Four

Happy World Card Making Day! To celebrate, Nichole Heady issued several challenges yesterday. I was most inspired by the Australia challenge. I loved the pictures full of bright colors paired with black, and the dark images outlined with white dots. I sponged ink onto a piece of kraft cardstock (I thought it was a "less stark" starting point than white). And WOW, did those white dots take FOREVER!!! :)

Stamps: Spunky Nature (My Cute Stamps)
Ink: Studio G pigment inks; Versafine black
Paper: Kraft and black (Stampin' Up!)
Other: white gel pen (SU)
