When we do good things for others
We do good things for God.

Hello my great stamping and crafting friends! A little birdie posted this quote and I love it, so I am sending it on to you, for you thought for the day! The trees are about to show us how to let dead things go! That is so true, we often carry so much old leaves around with us that we can barely lift the basket! We forgive others and we need to forgive ourselves! Hugs

The top card is so elegant and simple yet beautiful! This was a card we made with the three stampsters! The bird is a stamping up stamp and is so very fun to add the focus on your cards.
I loved all of the different colors and elements that give it a color burst! There is another little bird on the inside to greet the card holder and send a message of happy hello! I colored the bird with markers and used white gel pen to put a dot in the birds eye. Then I added the four orange dots on the side and it just seemed to bring the design together.  If you do not have a bird there are several beautiful ones in the new Holiday Catty.

The scene stamping is one of my favorite types of stamping. It gives me a feel of true "ARTISTRY"
I love to use different types of inks and paints to color them with.  I get the feel of painting with a paint brush! I used copics, and stampin up inks, and daubers and sponges to get the sky and the front path to look like is was watercolored. I masked the sun with a sticky note while I painted the entire card. Then I used a makeup foamy to add the color, next I take a small end of the sponge and add a little streak of brown across the sun as if it is setting behind a cloud. The photo really doesn't give it the full  effect but it is so cool in person. The trick is to not try to make your sun or moon look like a circle out of a coloring book! I make it wavey around the edges on purpose. It gives it a more true to life look.  The trees, grass, and barn have puff snow on them! They look like they have been dusted with an early snow fall.

I hope this inspires you to get your stuff out and get to making project! Please contact me for the new Holiday stamps and supplies for those Holiday Projects!
