Happy Fall!

Hello Fall & Hello Crafty Friends:

Kelli of The Lady Cage Blog. My Design team project today is a scrapbook layout!! I Love all Melinda's awesome fall files and I am an animal lover so I always add a "critter"! I cannot resist the Cuteness of these files!

Here is a close-up of kitty and some detail on the leaves!
The October challenge is "Anything Goes" & Optional twist is to use a Pumpkin or Leaves,
I cheated here, as my file was pumpkins with leaves.


    Supplies Used:
12 x 12 scrapbook page from  Recollections (Honeycomb)
Kitty 2G CF  & Pumpkin Vine 210 CF  (I cut the pumpkins and the vine 2xs)- to make a border.
I accented Kitty with Wink of Stella glitter pens and gave him some Green jewel eyes.
  I accented him with a bling collar and  white gel pen claws. 
Pumpkins & Vines are accented with embossing and alcohol markers.
The Leaves are distress inked and marker accented.  They are all popped up with dimensionals.
The title is cut from vinyl on the cricut.
Added a washi tape border on top and some sequins.

I hope you are inspired to go be Crafty with some Fall projects!!

Bear With Pumpkin Cart and Friday Freebie

Happy Friday crafty friends,
Where did this week go?  Seems like it was just Sunday evening and whamo, the weekend is once again upon us! Today I am sharing a super fun and easy card I created with this month’s challenge in mind. Our challenge this month is an “anything goes” challenge with an optional twist. The optional twist is to use either a pumpkin or leaves on your project. So here is what I came up with
Here’s a look at my completed card. It is a square shape and measures a 5.5 x 5.5. I started with a Kraft cardstock base. I then used some yellow cardstock for some mats and then turned again to my DCWV Fall & Halloween Basics stack for the patterned papers. GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA
Here’s a closer look at the nice grosgrain ribbon I used to make the bow and the border.

For the main image, I used the Bear with Pumpkin Cart DSb set and printed out the “finished” bear image. The image comes with all the shading done so it really is as easy as printing it off and either cutting around it with your craft cutter or just cutting a mat around it like I did. The set includes both .png and .jpg files so even digital crafters can get some use from them. You also get the set in a black and white line art version for coloring in yourself as well as a plain colored version.

October Challenge

Happy October crafty friends,
Whew, can you believe it is October 1st already! That is so hard for me to believe. This summer….actually this year has just been a blur. Well the first of the month is always fun, it is the start of a new month, a new month filled with lots of fun crafting and a new monthly challenge!  This month, like every month is an anything goes challenge! We have just a few small requirements, like you can create anything your heart desires as long as you use a file in some way. We also include an optional twist….that’s right optional. so here is this month’s Optional Twist
That’s right, our optional twist is to use a pumpkin or leaves in your project.  So here is what I came up with today.
Here is a look at my card. The finished size is 5 x 6.5. I used a cream cardstock base. I then used several pattern papers all from the DCWV Halloween Basics Stack. It is one of the very few DCWV stacks that I have that is another size besides the 12x12. I cut several different mats and adhered them to the base.

I then turned to the super cute Bear in Patch v13 Digital stamp-printable set. I used the finished image. These sets come with three different versions and in both .png and .jpg formats. Perfect for those that want to color, those with the Print N’ Cut feature of their machines. I almost feel like I cheated because all I had to do was size it and print it out…That’s it!
I then add the little scalloped circle and button with some twine for little extra decoration. I used some foam tape underneath to give it a little lift.

Then for one final touch, I added some gold sequins to the top. That’s it. Pretty easy!

Here's a card I did previously using the same Bear in Patch v13 Dsb file set, except this time I chose to use the uncolored digi and used my Copic markers to color the image. So much versatility from one file set
