Charlotte's Web

My 7 year old granddaughter just read Charlotte's Web for the first time.  I love that book and love sharing that experience with her.
My Z fold card is SU Crumb Cake cardstock covered with spider web paper from an unknown source.  I glittered the web with Stickles.  The crate die, wood grain paper and pigs are all Stampin Up products.  The pigs are colored with Copic markers.  The spider web is a die from i.o. cut from SU black cardstock and glitter paper

Crate of Pumpkins

I love the Stampin Up Wood Crate Die.  Here I cut it from Stampin Up Woodgrain DSP.
The pumpkins, gourds and leaves are from the stamp set Gourd Goodness.  I stamped them with various colors of ink onto Stampin Up Daffodil Yellow cardstock.  Then I put them through my
Scan n Cut.
The sentiment is from the Gourd Goodness stamp set.
The background paper is also Stampin Up.

Crate full of Christmas

Stampin Up Crate Die cut from Stampin Up woodgrain paper
Pine cones and Greens die cut with Stampin Up Pretty Pines.  Stampin Up cardstock and gold glitter paper.
Ornaments gold heat embossed from Stampin Up Carols of Christmas
Sentiment gold embossed from Stampin Up Oh What Fun
Card is a Z Fold and does close to fit in an A2 envelope.

Vellum Daisies

More of my favorite Stampin Up Daisy stamp and punch.  This time I punched the daisies from vellum after they had been stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed white.  The "hugs" sentiment comes from SU Lovely Words Die.  Centers are heat embossed gold.

Black-eyed Susans

I am obsessed with Stampin Up's  Daisy stamp, its co-ordinating punch and the crate die.
In this card I have transformed the daisy to a black-eyed Susan (inspired by a recent trip to Colorado where they were blooming in abundance).

The daisies were punched from SU Daffodil Yellow cardstock then distressed with inks.  The centers are a mixture of coffee and other stuff from Barbara Trombley's Elements.

The background is a brick embossing folder from Sizzix distressed with brown ink.

Notice the cool stamp used on the envelope!  It's from the daisy set as well.
