Happy Harvest

How about one more fall card for the month.  First I will show you the card I took my inspiration from for this creation.  This CARD from strappystamper on SCS is just too cute for words and uses the new Verve set Bountiful Harvest which I love and see as a purchase in my future.  Well since I didn't have the new verve set or the exact papers she used I improvised with materials I already own...which I seriously need to use up.

So I made the card base out of GP white, layered it with some SU choc chip and then came the mix of dps.  All from DCWV... 2 from last years Fall mat stack and the brown stripe from 2yrs ago fall mat stack.  I layered the pumpkin on the martha stewart lg lattice punch.  The pumpkin image is from Inkadinkado halloween set, stamped in stazon and colored with SU pumpkin marker.  The sentiment is a little studio G dollar stamp.  I'm pleased with the way this came together and it rounds out my stash of fall cards for this year. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a wonderful fall season.

Autumn Blessings

Ok this new uploading process for photos is a nightmare for me. Am I the only one having trouble with blogger's new upload process? UGH!!!

So on to this fall card.  This is another card made with the French Foliage set from SU. The gorgeous dp is DCWV new fall stack Amber Autumn.  Usually when I think of fall cards I think of the pumpkin colors, olive and browns so it's a little outside the box for me to do one in reds and browns but I just followed the colors of the paper.

The image is stamped with choc chip and Riding hood red from SU.  The sentiment is from TPC stamped in choc chip and mounted on riding hood red and choc chip. This was a really quick and easy card to do. Off to make a couple more.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're having a wonderful Fall.

Here is another Fall card this one made with one of SU's new sets French Foliage.  This is such a pretty set and I like that the stamps are solid, makes for a quick card without having to do any coloring.

So here's how this came together... the base of the card is SU choc chip. The kraft layer is paper from The Paper Company, got a pack of it at Joann's for $2.50, who can beat that price. Anyway I ran it through the cuttlebug using the sizzix embossing folder Finial Press.  The orange dp is Basic Grey, yes can you believe its not DCWV!!! I know, shocker.  Then came the image.  I stamped the sentiment in the center with choc chip, then the leaves were done in more mustard, old olive, and cajun craze. The little paris stamp was done in riding hood red and then I stamped the dots in SU crumb cake.  The senitment is a clear stamp from TPC and its punched out with SU modern label punch.  Hope you enjoyed this fall card.  Thanks for stopping by.

Thankful for Sunflowers

How about a little break from Halloween and on to fall for a minute.  I was totally inspired by this card HERE .  Isn't it a beauty.  I changed pretty much everything except the layout and flower.

Here's how I did my version.  The base is choc chip SU. The pattern paper is DCWV Amber Autumn stack.  I used some Kraft cardstock by the paper company.  I didn't have the ric rac die so I improvised  and layered 2 scallop punches from SU one in cajun craze and one in the kraft paper.  The sunflower was cut from Stretch Your Imagination cart at 5 inches several times and layered.  I sponged the sunflower with some SU more mustard ink. and popped a layer up with pop dots.  The center is just a circle punch that I sponged with some Expresson ink.  The sentiment is from SU's happy harmony set.  I finished the sunflower off with a little embroidery thread.  Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by...don't forget still time to win some of my halloween projects...check out the Another Small Giveaway Post for details.

R.I.P. (Cricut Halloween Tag)

Here's another tag that can be yours.  I love making little tags like this because you can do so much with them.  Add them to a scrapbooking layout, use them as a bookmark, put them on a card front. 

This tag was also done with the Oct 31st cricut cart.  All except the moon which is a 1 3/8 circle cut out of embossed paper and sponged with more mustard.  I cut the tombstone at 3 inches, sponged it with some black and stamped the RIP on there from an inkadinkadoo set.  The cat was cut at 2 inches and I added a little black diamond stickles for the eyes.  The crow was cut at 1 1/2.  I did the background for this tag the same as the other one with the sponging of several inks. 

Thanks for stopping by today and hope your having a wonderful fall season.  A few more days left for your chance at these goodies. Don't forget to enter.  You can find it under blog candy in my side bar.

Creepy Crawlies

While I don't particularly like spiders I'm not exactly afraid of them.  How you like to put the pic of your little one on here from Halloween?  Or do you have someone you know is terrified of spiders? This is a great layout for them.  Well it can be yours if you're entered in the drawing Another Small Giveaway and you've become a follower of my blog.

This is a 6x6 scrapbook page and super simple to do.  The base is black card stock cut down to 6x6.  The green layer is dcwv midnight spell stack.  I added some drippy goo border from MS punch and cut the spiders at 2 inches from the Oct 31st cricut cart.  The spider web was cut at 3 inches.  I embossed the photo panel with the web folder from cuttlebug so when you put your photo on here it will give you a bit of dimension.  I left a title off so you can personalize it how you want it.  I like 6x6 pages because you can add them to a mini album or build larger pages with them by mounting them on a 8x8 or 12x12.  Hope you like it and hope you've entered and good luck!

I'm Not Scared (Cricut Halloween Tag)

Do you like this tag? Would you like to own it?  Make sure you get a chance to win it by becoming a follower and leaving a comment on my Another Small Giveaway post published on Oct 1st.

You know I'm all about the halloween projects/cards so I thought I'd share the love.  The images on this tag were done from the Oct 31st seasonal cricut cart.  The tag base is just your everyday tag bought at an office supply store.  I rubbed it with some different inks starting with antique linen, then rubbing the edges with SU Cajun craze and the middle with SU more mustard.  I then took a cotton ball and dabbed some black soot ink to the edges.  I cut the web out at 3 in, the spider at 2 inches and the pumpkin at 2 inches.  I made my own layers for the pumpkin by cutting it out multiple times.  I sandwiched a pieced of black cardstock between the layers.  The little I'm not scared sentiment is from the DCWV midnight spell stack.  I topped it off with some fibers I've had hanging around forever.

Hope you're having a wonderful fall day.
