"Fire or Rain?" at Cards In Envy

Hi. I like the new challenge at Cards In Envy: Fire or Rain? You can interpret it in different ways at this time of year--cool, rainy fall days;  the vivid colors of leaves; autumn campfires...I chose a rainy day digital stamp from Vera Lane Studio at Etsy. Her raincoat, umbrella and boots are shined up with Glossy Accents.

Have fun creating a card, any long as it's flat for mailing!

"Favorite Holiday" challenge at Cards In Envy

Hello! The new challenge at Cards In Envy Challenge is: Favorite Holiday. Create a card featuring ANY holiday that is one of your favorites!

I decided to go with Thanksgiving, even though I'm sure Christmas is my true favorite! Thanksgiving is like the beginning of the Christmas season, especially with the Macy's Parade. I used a little clear stamp that is one of  my favorites and one of the first stamps I got when I began card making in 2010!

Come join the fun at Cards In Envy, where we challenge you to make cards that are flat for mailing!

Hello! There is a challenge in a group I'm in to make a card featuring another country, in honor of World Card Making Day. I love making vintage and French -theme cards, so out came this beautiful rubber stamp, Tim Holtz DP and distress inks!

I hope you had a wonderful day!

Something Spooky!

Hi! The new challenge at Cards In Envy is "Something Spooky!"  Autumn and Halloween will soon be in the air; now's your chance to make a cute or scary Halloween card--any size or shape as long as it is flat and fits into an envelope!

I found wonderful vintage Halloween tags at Polly's Papers on Etsy. It inspired me to try to make a vintage collage.

I had a lot of fun playing with this one. Even a collage can be flat for Cards In Envy style! Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you make!

"Feels Like Fall" at CIE

Hi! The new challenge at Cards In Envy Challenge is "Feels Like Fall." Use anything on your card that depicts the season Fall.

I used a cute Dearie Dolls digi stamp for my card. The pumpkins on her dress combined with the colors I used and the DP shout Fall to me! Such a fun time of year to make cards.
