Fall Inspiration

Quick and cute card created using the Totally Trees stamp set and the Shake and Celebrate stamp set from Stampin' UP! for a fall birthday card. Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

Hey there!

I am a bit late getting my Monday share up for you.  I can’t help it.  I had way too much fun this weekend in Santa Cruz and it put me a bit behind.  But I am rested and feeling very inspired and creative since I made a visit to the ocean.

Todays card is simple, fun, elegant, fall inspired and QUICK.

I like quick.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, I’m Honored

crazybloghop

Welcome!

It’s such an honor to be hopping with the Crazy Crafters Team.  My friend Kylie who lives in Australia has a fabulous team of demonstrators.  They chose me this week to be their inspiration station for their designs.

Their job was to go to my blog and CASE (copy and share everything) that I have created.

How fun!

Today I create a very different card than my usual style.  I paired the Floral Phrases with Christmas Pines to create a really cool and unique wedding card.

My cousin-in-law Amanda is getting married this weekend in the redwoods in Santa Cruz.  She’s having a very bohemian outdoor magical forest type of wedding.

I knew right away I would like to use pine cones and pine needles to create her card.

I used crumb cake card stock as my base, lots of copper embossing powder and old olive green and always artichoke for my pine needles.

Oogie Boogie Monster Bookmark Card, #GDP050

Create this super fun monster bookmark card using the Jar of Haunts stamp set from Stampin' UP! Created by Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

Oogie Boogie is all I could think of when I looked at this card.  I created this card for the Global Design Project sketch challenge.

Doesn’t it kind of give you the creeps.

INSPIRATION:  I admit it, I am addicted to The Walking Dead.  I am as shocked as you are about this.  I generally speaking hate stuff like this, and I spend a good part of every episode in the fetal position with a pillow over my face and a blanky.  Looking like a 10 year old watching a scary movie.  But I can’t stop watching.  I CAN’T.  So there is an episode of this gruesome show where the Governor has heads in aquariums on a shelf.  There it is.  That is my inspiration for this card.  I thought of shelves with jars of oogie boogie stuff in them.

I thought this would be a fun card to give to a kiddo and then they can use the insert as a bookmark.  Cute, right!?

I watercolored this card, and  love how it turned out.  Then I did one using my copic markers.

I am not as fond of the copic marker one.  I feel like it’s too white.  HA!  That probably sounds weird.  The watercolor paper has a more dingy look, or off white, and I feel like it goes better with the theme of my card.

Here is the copic colored version of this card.

The video is below along with all of my supplies, if you need any of the items please make sure you click on the images to order them in my online store.  ENJOY!
