Happy Fall....

There are certain crafters out there that tend to enable others to buy new products.  I don't want to mention any names....ahem... (Lydia Fiedler)....but she just happened to mention a great sale for these awesome Artbars  over at Amazon, and I knew I just HAD to purchase them.  I mean, I couldn't let a fellow crafter down, could I? 
 Of course I don't have a clue as to what I am doing!  I guess a bit of playing, trial and error, or whatever you want to call it is in order. 
So for today's card I simply stamped my pumpkins from the JustRite set called,Fall Applique, with Versamark.  I embossed it in black.  I watercolored the pumpkins with various shades of red, orange, and yellow.  I wanted a more artsy look, but think I failed in that department.
But I do like the vibrancy of the colors. 
So that's a win.
I added a flower I cut using my Spellbinder's Rose die
I watercolored that too.
I also added a sentiment from my label maker.  
I will continue to play with these new toys of mine. I will let you know what I discover and pass my knowledge on to you.  Because crafters are sharing people. ;)

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Quirky Joy!

Guess who is up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today? With a full tutorial on how to create this nontraditional, somewhat quirky holiday card? Yep, this gal! ;) 
I often start projects with no idea which direction I am going in. My mind is a strange, often cluttered, and fairly messy place.  The final product is most often completely different than what I had originally imagined.   :) 
Hence, the creation of this card. 
Would you like to see how it was made?
(And I am hoping you do.... ;)
Then be sure to head over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog!
Have a wonderful day!
