Things are getting back to normal here at the stamping studio! Hurray! Karen is back and we have had a flurry of creating activity here. It is so nice to have a regular routine for a week. With Fall being here and all the trees changing colors, we have been inspired to create with natures color palette! What beautiful colors they are! I hope that you enjoy all that we have shared this week. Make sure to come back next week for some spooky Halloween projects!
So Very Grateful For You
As I stated above, I was inspired this week by natures color palette as you can see. I took a solid image and inked it up with three different Stampin’ Write markers, to create this So Grateful For You card. I just love the simplicity of the card and am having a lot of fun creating with some old techniques!

Mouthwatering Note Of Thanks
Sophia used the same technique this week as I did above, just taking it to the next level. The cherries on this card are a solid image stamp. To create dimension to the cherries, she colored directly on the stamp using various colors of Stampin’ Write markers. She then went over the stamped image using various colors of colored pencils, in order to add in the highlights. She is amazing to me with how she can add so much dimension to her work with shading!
