Had a girlfriend card day. Love those. Hadn't had one for a while. I did this month's holiday cards. Will post the results over the next few days. Used some many printed papers from my stash for this card. The candy corn is a stamp and colored with copic pens.

Here is the page we will be doing for our art journal this month. It is hard to tell in the photo, but each color is a separate layer. There is lots of dimension to this page. The border has an ombre effect over which was doodled designs. I'll be doing this next week at Angela's Happy Stamper store. You can go to the store's web site if you want more information.

We got the sad news that my husband's uncle died recently. He loved the outdoors so I made this card to send to the family. The sun was created by cutting a hole in a piece of paper and placing it over the card as a reverse mask. I then sponged the open area with a yellow dye ink. Then removed the mask and added the words and the Stampscapes birds. Now it is ready to send.

Do you know the joys of Pinterest? It's a great resource for many things. I love it for card and craft ideas. This was an idea I got off of it which I tried out with friends the other night that was a great hit. We took old picture frames and sanded them. Then we painted a couple of layers of gesso over the frames. Next came paint in several layers. Then the string was added and held in place with a staple gun. The leaves were punched out of printed fall papers and attached with little clothes pins. The nice thing is the leaves can be changed out for other things as the seasons change. We were all very pleased with the results.

We had a grand time at the Open House at Angela's Happy Stamper Store. I was showing lots of ways to use paste. So many ways to use it! And now so many colors and types to use! I declared it was time to get over any fears we have of using it and just start playing with it! No worries if you couldn't make it to the Open House-there is still plenty of good stuff for the taking. Hope to see you soon at the store.
