Rachelle Anne Miller has a new release on the way and it’s great as usual! It contains four new stamps and a scene creator. As the scene creator set contains penguins I quickly decided that had to be my first project this month! I made a reasonably quick card though as life has gotten a bit in the way the past week or two. I still managed to make a little scene and just added a sentiment stamp for the finished card.
There is a new digital release at Whimsy Stamps again and this time I’ve used Autumn Swing. I coloured up a little scene for her rather quickly, but it gave the effect I wanted. Proper autumn colours were needed for this card and what is better than a big tree to swing from?

I have another card made using pencils on kraft today. This time the image is by Lee Holland and I’ve used Prismacolor Premier again to colour it up. I wanted the card reasonably simple, but with a fair bit of white, so I cut the panel down to pretty much a square and found some twine. Thankfully I had some that matched very well and I tied on a charm by Tim Holtz that I’ve had forever. A Mathia Design sentiment embossed onto black card stock and three enamel dots from Altenew finished off my card.
Simon Say Stamp has some pretty cool stamps and dies of their own brand, and this is one of those in my opinion. I love using this tree for sympathy cards as I can colour the blooms in whichever colour suits my mood. This time I opted for orange, which I very rarely do. I think it works well.
I used a sentiment stamp from Mathia Design which means “thinking of you” together with dies from MFT Stamps and La-La Land Crafts, and some enamel dots by Altenew.
I have another card to share where I’ve coloured up one of the adorable stamps by Rachelle Anne Miller. As it’s August already, it might be time to start slowly with the Christmas cards. It would save you having to do loads in November and December! That’s my goal at least, to have quite a few done before then, and I think I’m on track for it. This stamp is called Christmas Tree.
As for the rest of the card, I coloured up a matching background, and then die cut the coloured panel. I used various paper scraps and dies to make a cluster and then used a Norwegian text stamp for the Christmas sentiment.
