Happy Harvest!!


Well, we are back from our weekend in Toronto and we're still alive!! Our hotel was fabulous and we swam in the pool! The beds were like sleeping on a cloud!! The CNE was crazy busy but there was lots to do and we had a great day!! The weather was perfect and we got to see and do a lot of things! And not only that, my husband found some scrapbooking stores online and took me to them!!! Yaaaaaaaaay!! What a sweetie!! I even scored some deals!! At the second one, all the Hero Arts stamps were 50% off and so was all the paper I got which included some yummy Tres Jolie paper!! Mmmmm!

Anyway, here is today's card made with some of the new High Hopes Rubber Stamps that were released last Friday!! For this one I did the masking technique by stamping the sign first, masking over top of it and then stamping the small Guard Duty Rudy over top. There are several different signs to choose from and for this one I chose Happy Harvest. I coloured him in using my SU markers in various colours and doodled around the edge, then matted him on Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I then stamped the solid maple leaf stamp by colouring it with a marker, then spritzing it with water and stamping it. It gives it a cool effect, but I'm not really sure what this technique is called. I then cut the leaves out and attached them to the corner with an Around the Block acorn brad. The patterned paper is paper pierced all around the frame and also roughed up using my distressing tool. It is then matted on Old Olive and the card base is Pumpkin Pie!!

Now don't forget that the deadline for entries to the Kard Kontest is Wednesday night, so if you haven't entered yet......what are you waiting for?????

KIIMMMMMMIEEEEE!!! How do you color so well? You make these SU markers look like prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Share your secrets along with your outstanding cards. Pleeeeease.

Another great card. I was going to ask for a gift certificate for SU this year for my b-day, but I think I have to chance it to High Hopes instead.
