Rustic Autumn Wheel

There's a fabulous blog candy challenge going on at
Details are on Joan's blog. The challenge is to use a Heartfelt Creations stamp and upload it to your blog or SCS gallery, then link it to the link provided on Joan's blog to be entered. My card is a CAS card (no layers!) using Hearfelt Creations Rustic Autumn Wheel set. I colored it with Kohi-Nor colored pencils and baby oil. The only embellishment is that I sprayed the card front with vanilla smooch to give it a beautiful shimmer.

Framed Flowers

I love creating handmade flowers and what better way to showcase them than in a frame! This is a project I came up with for our demo get together yesterday. The brown flower in the right corner was created using the packing paper that is shipped with orders! Other materials used felt and cardstock, punches, sizzix dies, and freehand spiral cutting! Letters in the center of the frame are painted chipboard them sprayed with shimmer. The mat was stamped with versamark and the flourish from the Elements of Style stamp set. Leaves were made using a circle punch and then sticking the punched circle about 1/3 way back into the punch and punching a perfect leave shape to crinkle and sponge!
