Papercrafts I've Been Making This Fall

 The last time I shared my papercrafts was the end of August and since I really only made a few cards between then and now I thought I'd just share everything I've been making this fall.

I played around with some spotlight stamping.


Made a birthday and anniversary card for family...



And tried out a new technique with my card making stencils to make an offset shadow effect. 


I made my double embossed Christmas cards (where I stamped and embossed the saying then cut and pieced them together to make one multi-colored saying). 


I learned about a technique called bokeh for cardmaking and played around with that; I am LOVING these cards!




I finally got up the motivation to tackle our family trip to Shenandoah National Park in June and got all 12 pages done.

  9. I loved all these Jo - like collaging but with more structure. And those bokeh watercolour cards are just gorgeous. It's so nice when you allow yourself some creative time to play.

    1. I think embossing always makes a card look so much fancier.

  18. Your cards always impress me! The Christmas tree one is wonderful! Do you make more than one of them? Or, is it one and done?

    1. I usually make between 45 & 50 Christmas cards... often picking the same design for them all (like this year) but some years I do make 12 or 15each of a few different designs.
