Falling Leaves to go...

Another fall themed card today.  I am trying to use some of my goodies before they get put aside for Holiday cards...

The new (to me) supplies are those cute leaf dies from Lawn Fawn(Fall Tiny Tags).  I can't wait to use them as actually little tags on an altered project.  But for today, they are here on a card.

That background die is of course the Tall Stripe Die from Reverse Confetti.  I then stamped and cut apart, then inked the edges of the sentiment from the Unity Fall to Go stamp set and clipped them on.  The pattern paper is from Reverse Confetti.

Oh and that background panel... it was die cut from some packaging in one of my parcels.  I love to upcycle.

First Birthday...

I was asked by a friend of mine if I could make a first birthday card.  I used the PhotoPlay About a Little Girl collection along with some dies from PTI.

The main image is actually a sticker, but I adhered it to some scrap paper and then cut it out because I wanted it mounted on foam squares.... LOL

I played along with a couple of challenges.
First up the sketch is from TGIF challenges (I flipped the sketch)

I am also playing along with the Curtain Call Challenge:

Pumpkin Spice to go

I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog today with this fun card.

I used the Unity Fall to Go stamp set along with a sentiment from Jaded Blossom.  More details are on the CLC blog so be sure to pop on over there :)

Enjoy the Little Things...

I played with the November Girl by Unity the other day and challenged myself to color.... today I went with what really  makes me happy... paper piecing.  Must say... I want her sweater ;)

I had fun paper piecing her with the Warm & Cozy collection by Pebbles... I even used the sweater paper for her hat, gloves and scarf :)

I kept it simple but did add a die cut frame (Simon Says) and stitching for some interest.  She is mounted on foam squares.

Playing along with a few challenges.... First the Simon Says - Thinking of You

Once again, also playing along with the Unity challenge...

Fall is in the Air

I'm making the most of my fall supplies before I jump right into Christmas stuff...

Today I am once again using my Happy Harvest stamp and die from Reverse Confetti.  I created a simple card to go along with a couple of challenges.... one of which I am too late for :)  The colors were inspired by last week's Paper Players color challenge.

Not much to say as this is a pretty simple card.  I did pop the acorn up on foam squares.

The sketch is from:

And of course the supplies (click on picture to go to link)

Thankful, Grateful, Blessed

Whew, away last weekend and a busy week thus far left me no crafting time.... I was missing it so I decided to skip Zumba to play in my craft room! LOL

I challenged myself to not use pattern paper and to color rather than paper piece.  That is hard for me... I love my paper piecing and am not the best at coloring... but I do try once in awhile.  Anyways I used the November Girl and the Fall to Go stamp sets from Unity along with the Tag Duo from Reverse Confetti.

Whisking you a Sweet Birthday

I decided to step away from Fall and Winter and create a birthday card.  I used the Happiness is Homemade collection by Echo Park and thought that it paired nicely with an Echo Park cupcake die and the Whisky Business set by SugarPea stamps.

I paper pieced the image then mounted it on foam squares.
