Stampin up Boutique wow cards!

Here are some of the cards I have recently done for a local boutique shop! 


First up are some fun interactive cards using the waterfall technique! favorite time of year-FALL!
I loved creating these cute quaint acorn cards with the acorn builder punch and some of those cute wooden fall embellishments! A little twine, burlap paper and lovely verses make these cards so nice to send to loved ones!

Oh and that cute little scarecrow from the cookie cutter punch and halloween set!

One sheet wonders! I love how these turned out! Couldn't stop making them! These are heavy cards too with multiple layers on the outside and inside! :)

I love that set Wondrous wreath, it's been around awhile but never grows old! I enjoyed making these cards like a fireplace with a wreath garland! 

My favorite fall cards this year are my center step basket of leaves cards. I loved playing with all those beautiful fall designer papers that Stampin up has released through the years! The fallen leaf and autumn verses are from Our daily bread designs stamps.

One reason I have not been very active with my new blog is this lovely card below! I have been very busy making wedding invitations for my son and new daughter to be!  We chose the gate fold card with a lovely butterfly and treble clef. I also used that lovely rose Manhattan embossing folder from a few years back! 

Here is the inside(I smudged out the words) but the stamping was quite an event! We added up the number of stamps times the number of cards and I apparently stamped over 8,000 stamps! Wow wow wow, no wonder my wrists hands and fingers were sore! This is two step stamping....every last stamp required double stamping! (except for those little dots!)  I used a lovely sunflower stamp that I finally found to match the style of one of my old time favorite stamp sets Watercolor minis! We used Cherry cobbler with rose red, elegant eggplant with wisteria wonder, wild wasabi with pear pizzaz and crushed curry with daffodil delight. The sunflower was crushed curry and my old retired favorite creamy caramel!
And here is the line up of all the cards!

Of course I always have leftovers from anything I do and these wedding card extras were used to make some lovely fall gate fold cards:

A few more fall cards I made! I loved these cards cased from pinterest ideas!

A neat brick wall, the pretty soot technique with fall leaves, leftover bamboo pieces from a techniques class and joseph's coat technique lovely as a tree:

Thoughtful branches pumpkins and some cute expanded windows with a watercolor tree. 

And finally more one sheet wonders!
