SheetLoad Simple Special Stunning

It is time for the November edition of Simple Special Stunning at the SheetLoad of Cards blog, featuring samples by Ann Seleshanko.
Each month one of our artists will share three different cards that use the current layout. Each card is a "step up" from the previous one, but they are all fabulous. It is a good way to show how SheetLoad is geared toward papercrafters of all levels. Here are some sneak peeks to whet your appetite...

SheetLoad - Autumn Blessings, Cast All Your Cares & Enjoy The Moment

Today I have three cards to share with you from the November issue of Sheetload. First up is one of my favorites! It uses Papertrey Ink Autumn Blessings stamp set. Fall is one of my favorite seasons and I just love all the colors of leaves!
Next we have the card that really started my inspiration for the sketch. It's just a flat card, so no fold over on this one. It's really hard to see, but on the right hand side i used a stamp from Papertrey Ink Damask Designs along with Versamark Dazzle Ink.
The final card I have for you today also uses a Papertrey Ink stamp sets; Mega Mixed Messages & Guidelines II. The beautiful humming bird is Inkadinkadoo.

Is it really November?

Happy Saturday! I can't believe it's november, because it's 71 outside. Keep in mind, just a couple of weeks ago it was in the 40's. I have been a bit of a Betty Crocker today. I baked my favorite cookie recipe, made a sandwich ring and some ranch dip and veggies. Here's a few cards I made last weekend. When I was in Colordao several weeks ago visiting my mom I managed to find the one of the only stamp stores in Canon City. While there I picked up some Bliss Mist (a type of shimmery mist). I've sprayed the colored cardstock on these cards with the Whipped Honey Butter color. The pictures don't do it justice, but you can see a hint of shimmer below the ribbon. I just love this vase of mums. It's from the Autumn Abundance set from Papertrey Ink. I've also used Vintage Labels and Damask Designs. All very versitle stamps sets. If you click on the pictures to enlarge them you get a great view of the shimmer! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy your weekend!
