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.

Autumn Thanks

Welcome to another challenge at Penny’s Paper Crafty this week.  Our challenge for you this week is all about layers.  The more the better!

We have lots of sponsors for this week’s challenge which can be found on the blog.

I am highlighting an image from one of sponsors The Stamping Boutique.

 

They have some great images which can be found in their store here.

 

 

I used one of my fun 6×6 packs with lots of fun fall colors-MME All Spice.  It works great!  I cut some strips, and used a couple of different border punches with a strip of ribbon between.  I punched out a bunch of leaves that matched the image (colored with Copics) and just layered them on the bottom like falling leaves.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners set with Stampin up and I added just a little bling from my stash.  I hope you like it and feel free to play along with us as well.  We look forward to seeing you.

Merry Christmas

Hello All!  Back to the creative grind again after a successful weekend at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival.  I got a lot accomplished in terms of new Christmas Cards for my upcoming craft fairs, had a lot of fun with my friends Kathy & Lisa and the swag bag was amazing.  I will post that a bit later.

It’s a new challenge at Use it Tuesday this week. Our theme is all about Orange…we would like you to create a project using orange in it.  It could be halloween, thanksgiving, or anything else.  In my case, it is Christmas! 🙂

I challenged myself to make a Christmas card with the unconventional color of Orange ..so here we go.  All the DP is from my stash.  I am thinking I have some BG Jovial in there from a couple of years ago.That tells you how long I hold onto all my paper…LOL  The image is from my image bucket and is Stampin up.  The snowflakes were originally plain chipboard and then I covered them with glitter and added bling.  The lacy ribbon and twine are from my stash as well.  I hope you enjoy it and I hope you will stop by the blog and check out all the really great projects we have for you this week.  Don’t forget to enter the challenge and be sure to let us know which stashy or hoarded items you used for your project!
