this one's dedicated to Puff


Hi everyone! I'm really excited about this card. I borrowed the layout from Kim Kesti, one of the professionals at Paper Crafts. I have a tough time with layouts... I have SO much patterned paper, but I never get to show it off with the way I normally design my cards. This layout is perfect for using multiple papers and getting to show each of them off a bit! The Halloween words and green swirls papers are from Target (love their dollar spot!) and the pumpkin paper I received in a swap. The stamps (cat, sentiment) are from Hero Arts- I just picked up this set at my local scrapbook store and I LOVE IT!!! It's so cute, especially since the cat reminds me of my old buddy Puff. He has since passed on, but I couldn't help but color this image with gray. :) I pulled out some scalloped punches from Marvy Uchida (2" & 3") and a corner rounder by EK Success. I used some Tangerine chalk ink by ColorBox and a bit of chipboard. I really like the look of "naked" chipboard... its earthiness seems appropriate on fall cards. I colored the image with dry watercolor pencils, and then used a Q-tip to wet the image. I'm really pleased with how this card turned out, and that's mostly due to the layout, so if you read this, Kim- thank you for the inspiration! :D I hope you all enjoy this card, and thanks for stopping by!

Too Cute! I love that stamp. I too can not resist the dollar spot. I have to say the papers this fall were especially cute.

This turned out REALLY great! I love that you were able to show off so many different papers. I have those same ones. (I love the dollar spot too!)
