Just a Note

Morning all….I’m getting pretty excited! Only 4 more days until we head to Disneyland! It’s going to be such an awesome surprise for our little guy.

In the meantime, I’ve been trying to keep busy with cards and I’m starting to work with the fall color palette.  I love the fall colors and you can expect a lot of DT projects with a variety of papers and embellishments with a fall theme to them!

This week, head on over to Penny’s for our anything goes challenge sponsored by Lemon Shortbread!

Prize – 3 Digi images from the store

 

Here’s my card.  I know strawberries are usually associated with summer, but I thought the red and green would fit in great with my fall palette.

I colored the image with my copics and then (although it is hard to see) I added a wink of stella to the berries and some glossy accents to the leaves.  The DP are just bits and bobs from my stash and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches!

I hope you like it!

Thinking of fall

Hello!

 

Our sponsor this week for Penny’s is Paper Creator  (the winner this week gets a £10 credit to the store)  and I just knew I wanted to use this fun image!Noah's Autumn Leaves

 

I don’t have a lot of fall/autumn images and Noah is just too darn cute.  I also knew that I had some fun autumn DP in my stash that I received in a swap that I really wanted to use with it! Now this image is pre-colored because we all know my coloring skills leave a lot to be desired.

The sentiment is from a bunch of new goodies I received from Vicki Boutin.  They are from her fun line with American Crafts.  I punched out some maple leaves with my punch out of some of the DP and cardstock.   I also had a little yellow leaf that I got in a swap ages ago.

I hope you like the card and be sure to stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you.

Fall Fun

It is another challenge up at the Use Your Stuff blog today!  It’s Fall Y’all…although here in Calgary, it’s more wintery than fall-y 🙂

I created this layout using some old Hot off The Press papers that I wanted to use up.  I’ve had them forever!  The title is printed off of the internet and the leaves were done with my  EK Success maple leaf punch! (this is one of my favorite punches).   All the rest of the little embellies are from my stash!  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog this week!20161104_085802

Many Thanks – September Paper Pumpkin

So I started getting the paper pumpkin from Stampin’ Up. The September kit was a project I wasn’t really thrilled about so I decided to play around with some of the pieces for cards instead. I love the cute little fall stamps!

It works great for our challenge at Use Your Stuff this week, which is THANKFUL! So here is my card (with a little help from Pinterest! )

The colors of Autumn

Ahh fall is here.  The leaves have started to drop, the colors are changing and the air is getting cooler.  Our new challenge at Use Your Stuff this week celebrates all that is fall!  The sounds, the sights, the smells..show us what fall means to you.

I love making autumn cards because I love all those rich hues.

I just wanted to make a simple autumn card for a swap-bot swap that I am doing.  More layers than bulk and I love using my favorite pumpkin stamp!  I hope that you will play along with us this week.  Can’t wait to see what you create!

Friday the 13th

I just realized it is Friday the 13th today….surprisingly, it is a good day and not a bad one.  I’m excited to announce that I will be the Guest DT for 4 Crafty Chicks for the month of December!

Quite excited about that and looking forward to creating with their awesomely talented DT!

 

Today is our new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges…we’ve got a new DT coming up and some minor changes so watch for a posting about that.

Our theme this week is Autumn Leaves are Falling….I am not looking forward to fall in as much as it means that summer is over.  The leaves have already started falling from the trees here.  Our winters are always so long so I am sad about this.

I created an ATC for this challenge as I had to do it for a swap-bot swap as well.  I do apologize for the picture though.  It’s not that great.  I’ve already mailed out the ATC so I can’t redo the pic so I do hope you will forgive me.

???????????????????????????????

 

The DP is just from my stash.  I’ve had this leaf FOREVER.  It is in a chipboard set and so I spritzed it with my Clearsnap spritzes and then I stamped over it with a sentiment stamp from Pink Paislee’s Amber Road stamp set.  I also had some little i-rock blings that I used as well. I also have these cute little leaf punches and I just did a few in some autumn colors to add a little tail to the atc.   I hope you like it and please stop by the blog and join in on this week’s challenge.
