Fall Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Papercrafts Oak Leaves - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning blog friends!  Today is day three of JustRite Papercrafts October releases. Fall is in the air!  Yes, some of us have strolled out quite a few Christmas cards but I’m glad to be able to circle around and say a little hello to a new season.  I love the signals of fall, the russet tones of leaves, the cool crisp feel in the air, the cozy call of sweaters and scarves to fend off the chill, snuggling in with hot cocoa and a book. . . sigh!  My card today uses a new set called Oak Leaves.  I’ve cut it out using JustRite Oak Leaves SVG files, stamped in black and embossed with clear embossing powder then added subtle hints of color with watercolors.Fall Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Papercrafts Oak Leaves - www.amazingpapergrace.com
After embellishing with ombre sheer ribbon, burlap trim, lace and a pleated trim I added a little tag with a stamped sentiment using Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags.  Oh, and some bling :-)

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Papercrafts Brush Stokes and Spellbinders - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning friends!  Today is Day 2 of new October releases for JustRite Papercraft!  We challenged ourselves to stretch a little bit and try some techniques with watercolor during this release.  I went with a watercolor background and have to admit that I’m really smitten with the watercolor look – it’s so dreamy.  It’s something I can see pulling out when I want a quick card.  You see this is what happened — I sat down to create one or two backgrounds and came up with about 10.  Pure therapy – just sitting down and swirling the colors around was a breath of fresh air for me.

To make the 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card I mounted the 4-3/4″ x 6-5/8″ stamped and watercolored panel to teal cardstock measuring 5″ x 7″ and then attached both to my card base.  I used Spellbinders Flutters to cut the two layered butterflies and covered the bottom layer with teal and blue glitter.  I finished it off by adding silky thread, sequins, pearls, and a silk bow.

CRAFT SUPPLIES I USED

Christmas Waves a Magic Wand

Christmas Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design and Spellbinders Labels 39 - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning friends!  Today I’m sharing a Christmas card with you using a brand new, beautiful sentiment from Quietfire Design!  Oh goodness, it’s beautifully penned by Suzanne Cannon and commands center stage on the card.  I thought that the elegance of her script called for a traditional card so I reached for the deep red, forest green and gold.  For my layers I used Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One, Spellbinders Labels Thirty Nine and the oval from Spellbinders Filigree Delight.

WRBF-4454-2014
I started out with a 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card base and added a layer of design paper with a text design.  Next I added green design paper and cut Bracket Borders One on each end.   The sentiment is stamped on the oval from Filigree Delight then stacked on top of Labels Thirty Nine and then finally stacked onto Floral Ovals.  Slowly but surely I am adding to my stash of cards for Christmas and this beautiful sentiment is a great addition to my collection of Christmas sayings:-)

How are you coming on your Christmas cards?  Do you space them out over time or are you a last minute Lucy?  Lol, I’m a little of both – I space them out until I realize how close we are to the date, then I panic and the frenzy starts!  Thanks so much for stopping by friends, I’ll see you soon!!
