Autumnal Equinox Day Fall Thank You card

Today is the Autumnal Equinox Day

I love this card so much that I may give it to my husband so it stays here. I explain how I made the background at the end of this post. The dry embossed leaves folder is by The Paper Studio. After it was embossed, I blotted the entire paper with Versa Mark ink. Then using a large makeup blush brush, I brushed the paper with gold Perfect Pearls powder. The frame is a Cricut die-cut and leaf by Gina Marie. The sentiment is by Fiskars. I inked some of the edges with distress ink.

The background of this card was made at a moment when I thought to myself,. "Hey, I wonder what this would look like?" I was inking backgrounds stamps with multiple colors of distress inks and then I would spray the stamp with water and get the ink leftovers inks onto a piece of cardstock. Well, I did that and then I would take that wet paper and put it together with another one on top of it. This is the back of a store-bought card which is glossy. I didn't know if the ink was going to stick to it. I used my heat gun on it and then just stepped away while it dried.

Positive Thinking Day
I cut out two different sized circles with the Creative Memories cutting system out of Inkadinkado masking paper.
The die cut is by Spellbinders. It has been in my stash forever. It was one of those times that I cut out other people's dies and with no idea what I'd use it for or with
The stars aligned and the stamp set and die-cuts came together :)
Ink is Distress ink-Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans, and yellow is Squeezed Lemonade.
Black ink is Hero Arts. I love how dark and sharp it is.
I set a Making Memories eyelet for the hole on top and used Karen Foster floss as the hanging component.

Manly Monday Linus Baby Boy

Linus makes another showing for baby boy cards. I have baby stamps but they are by Lawn Fawn and this will sound stupid but I don't want to stamp with them because then they will be dirty. They stain so badly and I'm not sure why I care but I do. Ugh!
Patterned paper by Die Cuts with a View.
Sentiment stamp by Three Bugs in a Rug.

Spellbinders die-cut was inked with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Distress ink shaded lilac to edges, die-cuts by K and Co.

I made this one into an anniversary card. The second image is the finished card done in August 2021

Green Ribbon with different wrap around the blue cardstock

I wrapped and adhered the green ribbon around the small square of cardstock. Then I continued the ribbon to wrap around just the bottom of the dark cardstock. The die-cut is from a K and Co Poppy Seeds. Simple. A different way to wrap a ribbon around your card.

A Little Something Purse card

I've been trying to find ways to use these stamps and this is another one I came up with. I stamped the squares with a variety of inks and added a die-cut by Spellbinders behind it. The purse is also a SU stamp and I colored it in with Smooches ink. The card base was stamped with a Hero Arts stamp with Versa Mark ink. I used a heat gun to dry it. I did brush some white powdered chalk on it.
The outside edges were inked with distress ink by Ranger (Spun Silk & Mahagony).
