The patterned paper is a recycled card,

Dry embossing floral card

I made this any occasion card thinking it would be an anniversary card. It's close to the end of the year and I have to gather the cards for next year on my husband's side of the family. I have a deal with my BIL that I will make and give him the cards for the year with the understanding that he will send them out on time. A ridiculous thing to admit but I can't seem to send cards to family and friends before the birthday or anniversary. If I am "on time" it's not really, it's more like super early so that it's not late.
Anyway, the background is dry embossed with an Anna Griffin folder where the center is open. I filled it with two eBay dies with  Jolee's flower sticker on top. Not much to it but it is pretty.

Deep Red Stamps Christmas Present cards

I have two cards today. I really like the way they turned out.
The patterned paper is by Carta Bella Bundled Up by Alisha Gordon
Dry embossing folder by Cuttlebug

I colored the stamp with distress markers and sprayed with water before stamping.
Fun thing-I covered the manufacturer's hole at the top of the 6x6 paper pad with a bow.



The second present card is on Carta Bella patterned paper and a Project Life card
The funny thing about this card is the circle sentiment is covering a blemish on the paper.
The sentiment on the circle is a rub-on by American Crafts. I was nervous adding the rub-on to the circle as it was a close fit.

Halloween Cards

This first one I used a background stamp by Deep Red Stamps Leaves Background stamps
I stamped it with multiple distress inks and sprayed it with water before and placing the paper onto the stamp instead stamp to paper. I inked the edges with distress ink.
The sentiment is a Cricut die-cut
The ribbon and brad are from my stash.



The only thing I can say about the second card is the pumpkin is a store-bought quilled embellishment from EK Success and the jute that is fuzzy and wrapped around the bottom is also by EK Success.



I found some other Halloween cards when I was looking to see if I had posted a certain card.
