Whimsical Autumn

Good morning!

We had a fun Christmas card SAS class yesterday at Gina's store. I have the best job in the world, I think. Thanks, ladies, for coming and stamping with me! I had such a nice time with everyone! I'll share our cards soon - I've got to get photos of them still....

Today's cards are some that I made last Friday at my Stop & Stamp at Gina's store. I had some time in the evening to stamp and color with some of the ladies who stopped in to make cards with me. I shared one sample of the apple basket card with you last week on my blog.

We used Carolyn King's Whimsical Autumn and Koh-i-noor pencils, blending stumps, and Odorless mineral spirits to color. I can't say enough about these amazing pencils - they blend so beautifully! And as for Cammie's stamp set... well, I'm sure you all know by now how much I love it because I use it so much!

Last Friday, one of my stamping friends, Karla - hi, Karla! showed me some adorable cards she had been working on recently. On several of them, she had layered these two EK Success corner punches - Fancy Corner & Curved Corner. Doesn't it look awesome layered together? I can't remember if I've seen this anywhere else yet and I love the look! Thanks for the great idea, Karla!

I LOVE it when people bring in the cards and projects they've been working on so I can see! We all learn from each other, don't we!


Don't forget to leave you comment on my blog post yesterday to be entered for a chance to win a free $18.95 GinaK stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by today!

I love the pencils too! your card is beautiful, love the layering of the corner punches-so elegant! I do believe you have one of the best jobs for a stamper - lucky! told my DH I had a job there (Gina offered to me) but I had to move. He didn't really respond. HA!

Beautiful card, Jessica. I love the layout and colors you used, and the corners are fabulous. I may have to case this one.

OH these are just gorgeous Jessica! I love the fall and these are just perfect! And yes, I agree, you do have the most awesome job! LOL!

Gorgeous cards, Jessica! The corner punch treatment is really great. Fun to think about something other than Christmas cards since that seems to be my main focus lately. I did love the cards we made at the stamp-a-stack. You sent me on a hunt for a pack of that Jitterbug paper, which I did finally find!Thanks for a fun class, and, yes, you do have the best job in the world!
