Stamping Handmade Hugs

When you can't hug in person, send a Handmade Hug you created, with Stamps, Paper & Ink!

    Nothing says “Fall” like gourds, they are a sign that the days are going to be generally sunny and the air cool and crisp. It’s my favorite season I think.  Fall isn’t as colorful here in sunny California, as it is on the east coast, but you can still smell it in the air. Making Fall cards helps me to enjoy and appreciate the season even more.  Cajun craze, pumpkin pie, crushed curry,  always artichoke and tangerine tango are colors I rarely use the rest of the year. It’s fun to pull them out this time of year. I hope you enjoy looking at these cards as much as I enjoyed making them!

    I used the Baby Wipe Technique for the leaves on the top right card of the above collage.  That technique is demonstrated in the collage below.

I hope these note cards either inspire you to send someone you love and care about a quick note, or to sit down and give yourself a little creating time…so you can later send someone a quick note.

   If you would like to order any of these products, I would be happy to be your demonstrator, if you don’t already have one. Just click on the products you would like and it will take you to my store! All the products for each of these cards are posted below. If you have a question about products, technique or anything else, please leave a question in the comment box below, and I will get back to you.

   All orders will receive at least one of my handmade cards, the more you order, the more goodies you get!

Take some time for yourself to create and later you’ll have something special to give to someone you love!

    Thank you Patti! It is a very versitile technique, I tend to use it more with Fall leaves and trees. I’ll have to try it on some floral cards or snowflakes…
