Acordian/Stairstep Card

So, Jared is being VERY co-operative today, which means I got to participate in the technique lovers challenge...Yayyy ME!!! I normally don't like this challenge(are you all sick of hearing me say that), but when it is as COOL as this technique, I make exceptions!! For this card, I cut my Chocolate Chip piece of cardstock and scored it following the instructions in this post. I then layered each "step" with a piece of DP from the Autumn Vine pack, SERIOUSLY love this stuff!! The pumpkins are from the SU set, Autumn Harvest, and were stamped with Brown Stazon on Whisper White. Then I colored them in with my SU markers and added brads and spiral clips with ribbons to the corners. The leaves are also from that set. They were stamped the same way and colored with my Sage Shadow marker. Two of them I cut out and adhered directly to my pumpkin panels, the other two I used my SU circle punches to punch them out. The sentiment is from the Anna Wight set called Give Thanks from Whipper Snapper. I cut it and its layers out and then attached them to a tag I cut out(using my tag nesties)of Sage Shadow. I added a BUNCH of gold brads and it was done. I am still debating on whether or not I should go back and add the faces to these super cute pumpkins...what do you think??

Well, that is it for me now, thanks for looking and have a great day!!

Whipper Snapper Release!!

So today is the day that Whipper Snapper Designs is releasing 4 new cling sets designed by the SUPAH talented and SUPAH sweet Anna Wight. I made two cards with this first set, and I gotta tell ya, I am IN LOVE with it!! The set is called Penguin Antics, and normally you wouldn't get both of them in one post, but I seriously couldn't decide which one I loved more, so I am showing them both!! The first one was made using Jen del Muro's sketch for you to try from this weekend. I stamped the penguin, chick, bird and snowflake with Black Stazon and colored them in with my SU markers. The snowflake wasn't colored, but I did go over it with my Sakura glitter pen. I used my Cuttlebug and Circle Nestabilities to cut out the penguin and its layers, and my SU circle punches for the smaller circles. On the penguins hat, I added some liquid applique to make it puffy. The DP is from the Four Seasons DSP from SU(retired). It was layered with some silver cardstock from DCVW and Night Of Navy. For my embellishments I used some silver satin edged ribbon from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts and some Navy grosgrain, silver brads and clips, and I did a lot of piercing.
This second card was stamped and colored with same way(SU markers, liquid applique). It was layered with Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. The DP is the Ski Slope DSP in the Holiday Mini Catalog from SU. My embellishments are all from SU, except the spiral clip. Don't you just love that penguin with his head stuck in the snow...cracks me up!!

That is it for me now..Jared will be here early, and I am already sleepy as it is. Be sure to check out what the other Featured Designers have in store for you!!
