Harvest Card

I'm making this card for a gardening buddy whose birthday is in the Autumn.  I haven't added the sentiment yet, but it will be something on the line of  "Bountiful Blessings on Your Birthday." 

I am submitting it to Challenge #28 at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Mondays - In My Garden Harvest Time:
Create a project having to do with gardening (plants, gardening tools, vegetables, etc.)

Thanks for stopping by.
The word Autumn is from Pagoda, the pile of dirt is from Everyday Paper Dolls, and the wheel barrow and tools are from Walk in My Garden.

The blank inside...I don't know which font to use.

Autumn Card

This sparkly Autumn card is made from DCWV Indian Summer Glitter Matstack card stock.  I cut "Autumn" at 2.91 inches on my Cricut using  Lyrical Letters.  It's a delicate cut, but I think it has enough weight to support the Prima sunflowers.  I just fell in love with these chipboard leaves by Me and My Big Ideas.  The leaf gems are something new at Michael's and they are by Recollections.  They come in a roll and are one strand of glue.

I am submitting this card to:
Paper Playtime Challenge (Autumn card)     CreativeAccents Challenge (ABC - alpha, bling, chipboard).

Thanks for stopping by.  If you have a moment, leave a comment.  I'd love to hear from you.  Sue.

Lots of sparkle - just like Autumn

A titled view to take away some of the glare.

Merlin's Treat Box

A Halloween treat container was project for the 1st the Let's Face It Friday Peachy Keen Challenge this week.  I made a treat cylinder using a TP roll and decorated it with die cuts from Cricut Paper Doll Dress up and Holiday Cakes cartridges.  I used the wizard cuts including the wizard, all layers of clothing and accessories from PDDU.  I cut the pumpkins, moon, and bat from the border features in Holiday Cakes.  I also used a flower cut from George and Basic Shapes to close the bottom of the cylinder. The designer paper (4" x 6"), card stock, gems, and star twine were from my stash  I used stickles (Broken China and Antique Line) on the wands.  I found the directions to make a TP candy cylinder at Sweet for My Sweets .

Since my grandchildren get so much candy Trick or Treating, I decided to fill the container with Halloween pencils I purchased at Michael's for a dollar. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  Sue

Here are the sides of the tube:

The front featuring Merlin.  I wrapped the star twine around the pencils  to make it look like and explosion of magic.

...Merlin's partner the Owl...

...the back with pumpkins, moon, and back...

... and back to the front.

Here are the closeups of the stamped faces:

The Moon is angry because the Bat is trying to block her from the picture.LOL.


Winter Wonderland Challenge Card

Over Winter Wonderland the challenge is for a Monochromatic Christmas Card "one colour card with either cream or white".    I chose to feature blue and white and a lot of dots.  I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, Perfect Pearls, and Paper Wishes paper.  The tree is actually a flourish in Lyrical Letters that I turned upside down.  I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.   Sue
The birds and pine cones are also cut from Lyrical Letters and are mounted on foam tape.

I tilted this to remove some of the glare.

Cricut Cardz Callenge #42

Cricut Cardz Challenge #42 "For challenge #42, make a card for Halloween using the card feature from any cartridge, and using any colors you'd like."  Well, that's easier than it sounds.  Paper Cutz Challenge #59 was to make a Halloween Card not using Black or Orange.I finally chose Easter colors.  Purple, Yellow, Pink and Green  No cellophane grass though.  LOL

So here's Spooky the Spider.  He is looking for a treat!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  Sue

The papers in this A2 are from Recollections.

Spooky is from Stretch Your Imagination; the diamond border is from Holiday Cakes, I got the bats at Big Lots and I placed a gem in each one to brighten them up a bit, I used purple glitter on his hat, shoes and nose.

Bookmark for the City Crafter Challenge

Split Coast Stampers put out a video on these corner bookmarks a while ago, and I wanted to try one out.  The City Crafter Challenge Blog's challenge is to "create a card/project that include the image of a tree/trees  or a book/books. You could also make a bookmark, a book cover, a notebook, coffee table brag book etc."  So I got my stash of papers out and made a bookmark.  Since I will be giving this to a dear friend that moved away recently, I wanted to make it Autumn colors.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.

This is a picture of the bookmark  "off the book".  The hearts are dew drops.

I used a Fiscars border punch on the bottom.

I used the Cricut to cut a leaf from Lyrical Letters.  The flower is from assorted petals in my stash.

ColorQ Card

For the fun of it I made this card following the color choices at ColorQ - Cherry, Pear, Peach, White and Espresso. In my stack of K & Company paper packs I found papers with the required Cherry, Pear, Peach, and White.  I used the Espresso glitter paper from DCWV and cut it with MS double doily punch.  I added three gold buttons with white roses on them for some bling.  

I really like this project because it made me pair colors that are way out of my comfort zone.  But I think the card came out nice.  It reminds me of a transistion between spring to summer. It would be okay for a masculine card also.

Here's my card:  Thanks for stopping by...Sue

Crafty Little Place Challenge Card

The challenge at A Crafty Little Place this week was -
One Flower + 2 Designer Papers + 3 Buttons.
Here's my entry, a thank you card-seems you never have enough:
The designer paper is K & Company, the flower is from Prima (I added a small amount of Stickles), and the buttons were from a vintage collection I bought many, many moons ago.  I just chopped off the shank and popped them on with a glue dot.  The pearl trim was from my stash as is the Thank You rub on.
Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check out A Crafty Little Place to see all the great entries.  

I love the sheen of the flowers on the bottom paper.
