Lovely as a Tree CASE - Sort Of

 Here's the last of our September Stamp-a-Stack cards.  The other two cards were pretty flowery so I wanted to go with a more fall-like card that could also be used as a masculine card.  We made the card with the tree by stamping it in Crumb Cake ink and then thumping it with an Always Artichoke marker before applying it to the cardstock. 

The goose card is a card I made at a local stamping meeting that was designed by Julie Davison, but since I didn't have that stamp set, embossing folder, or punch, I had to do some tweaking :-)

Flower Shop Gingham Birthday

Here's one more flower card for Friday night's Stamp-a-Stack.  I mentioned in my last post we are running out of time for flowery cards, and I am really stretching it by using these springy in-colors.  But the flowers from the Flower Shop set are some of my new favorites and the stampers really liked them last month when we made this card so I thought I might get away with it ;-).  I used the Gingham wheel, but I am joining in on the trend to un-mount wheels so we could use the gingham as a stamp.  All you have to do is use a hobby blade to cut the stamp at the seam and peel it off of the wheel.  Then you can stick it to the clear-mount cling foam and use it like an clear mount stamp.  I didn't realize how similar this is to a card on my Pinterest board until after the card was done.  What a great source of inspiration!

Flowery Birthday Card CASE

This card is a CASE of a card swap I received at convention from Kathy Johnson.  That's one of the many great things about swapping - I had to use different stamp sets and embossing folder but was able to use the great color combination and layout she created.  I figure this is the last month for flowery cards as we are heading into fall leaves and holidays so I thought I would squeeze this one in.  Do you know how I made the leaves?  It's the wing from the Bird Builder punch!
