Thankful Fall Is Here

Here's a Fall card I made for a swap.  I did the leaves on Yupo paper with different alcohol re-inkers.  Then I stamped the leaves, embossed them with gold embossing powder and cut them out.  I used Stampin Up sets Fall Whimsy and Sincere Salutations.

77 days until Christmas!

Hi everyone.  This week Paper Ala Mode is getting into the Christmas spirit.  We are sponsored by Digi Stamps 4 Joy and Conie Fong Art.  If you are looking for some inspiration to jump start your Christmas cards then head over to our challenge and have a look!

I used a Conie Fong Art image called Joy To The World and created a fun shaker card.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up, and I finished it off with some red ribbon and a couple of snowflake buttons.  Thanks as always for looking!

Pumpkin Pickin' Time

Hi everyone!  The Paper Ala Mode challenge this week is to make Halloween Card or use Fall colors on your project.  The sponsor of the challenge is Dollar Graphics Depot.  I chose a couple of images from the Pumpkin Girls Combo Set and created a little scene of a girl who has just chosen the perfect pumpkin for her jack-o-lantern!

Here are a couple of really quick Halloween cards I made with some silhouette images from Bugaboo Stamps.   I used distress inks on glossy card stock for the background and then printed the images on top.

Come play with us!

Pop Up Christmas

Hi everyone!  I recently joined a pop up card swap and wanted to share the cards I made with you.  These were great fun to make!  I love how it looks like the element is floating in air when you open it.

Anything Goes at Paper Ala Mode

Hi everyone!  The Paper Ala Mode challenge at the Outlawz this week is Anything Goes!  We are being sponsored by Crafts and Me.  I chose this wonderful image called My Time and created a birthday card with a little bit of a unique pop up fold.

Why don't you come join us and share what you've been working on?

I colored with Copic markers and used some stickles for the bath bubbles.  Here's the inside

Three Little Kittens

Hi everyone.  I know it's been too long since I posted anything.  I have been making cards, just haven't been sharing a lot of them because I've been waiting for the people they are going to to receive them.  The cards I'm sharing today were made for a shaped card swap that I joined.  I actually had some success with my scan n cut cutting the files to make these!  The top photo shows all three sans whiskers.

I finally found the perfect whiskers in an old push broom at work!  I think they turned out cute and then I noticed that the middle kitty has the pink part of his ear glued on wrong!  Oh well, I guess it gives him personality!

Water Coloring

Hey everyone.  Okay, I have to tell you right off the bat that I am not happy with my project today.  The Paper Ala Mode challenge this week is water coloring. Our sponsor is Bugaboo, and I picked out this cute Santa's Reindeer tag image.  

I water colored the background and added some little snowflakes and crystals.  I tied it off with a silver  tie.  I am not entirely happy with the whole thing, but it will work as a tag.  

If you have mad water coloring skills, come share your talents  with us.
