A Little Bit Woodsy & Two-Topic Thursday!

Two-Topics Today .... i.e.  Two-Topic Thursday!

Ahhhhhhhhhhh!
It's actually 'feeling' like the beginning of Fall here on my little spot on the planet!

Even though I don't get the beautiful color transitions seen in more northerly states, the morning & evening temps have slid down the thermometer just enough to bring out the audible "Ahhhhh's" from many of us here in the northern part of Texas.  (I can't actually speak for those lucky peeps farther South in TX ... ... .)

Vintage Leaves is one of favorite stamp sets.  If you haven't had a chance to play with it in a class, or have been on the fence about ordering it ...  ...  Well, in my opinion, you've been missing out.  Trust me on this one.



I really enjoy pairing the Vintage Leaves with the new 6"X6" Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!  I don't live in a wooded area ... far from it here in the plains.  However, I adore woodsy, forest-like places full of texture, earthy scents, and creature habitats.  Thus, it was a natural for me to scoop up both of these items.

The coordinating Leaflets Framelits Dies make it so easy to whip up a cluster of leaves for your projects.  I tied these together with a bit of Linen Thread ... another earthy, natural element I keep on hand at all times.   Brayer a little Crumb Cake ink over the raised tree trunks after using the Big Shot ... and this card is ready for sharing.  Use whatever sentiment you need to suit the occasion!  I've used 'Just For You' from the Floral Wings set ... versatility indeed!

and Topic #2 ... ...
Are you ready for some real, live stampin' fun?!

Peace and the Pine Bough

Welcome to a brand spankin' new week, m'friends!

I'm bringing a Christmas card to you today ... Some days I've spent creating in a Fall theme, but it's turning into a seasonal 'mix' on my stampin' table.   How about yours?  Do you stick with one theme and make a total close-out there before moving on to the next season or theme?  I think I'm a little too spontaneous for being bound into just one slot.   LOL

I have long-loved heat embossing and it's a perfect technique for the new Peaceful Wreath photopolymer stamp set.


To my non-coloring fans out there ... take heart!  This is SO easy to color with just two Stampin' Write markers.

 No need to stress over which alcohol markers, blending, etc. ... these holly leaves & berries were colored with my Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write markers in a quick minute or less!  The gold embossing actually makes it super easy to keep the coloring "in the lines" too, as long as you're not trying to be a speed-coloring whiz.  Try it!  You'll see!
