I am using some stamps from Ellen Hutson or more specifically - Cozy Lady - such a fun set for fall.  ---> $25 Gift Card up for grabs from Ellen Hutson!


I decided to create a couple of cards using the same basic layout and stamps bit with different looks. 

This first one is more traditional fall colours using some papers from Your Next Stamp. I made her all cozy and indoors for this one. A bit of colouring and paper piecing. She is mounted on foam squares for dimension.


Next up, I used some Pinkfresh Studio papers (Be You) and went for a more non traditional fall look - I would wear this outfit :) Same basic things, although in this case she is outside. I mounted her on foam squares as well.



Next stop....Valerie!

Let's try this again...I was so excited I misspelled words!
Such pretty Cosy Lady cards! Beautiful palettes; eye-catching details (I want a pair of the brown polka-dot leggings); lovely designs! If one of these landed in my mailbox, it would be framed immediately and prominently displayed in my craftroom. I can tell you thoroughly enjoyed creating these gems; they're infused with joy!
