happyHarvest

Hello all, Monica here today to share a card for the September challenge over at Die Cut Diva's. Fall is my favorite time of year with pumpkin everything, cooler air and leaves changing colors! It's also harvest time, so here in the mid west all the fields around town will be bare again. That leads us to my card...


I stamped and colored my image on a scarp of cardstock. I layered it with the same pattern paper I used for the base of my card. I have a layer of cardstock that I stamped a band of a darker ink for a bit of texture. I added the cardstock onto the base and before adding the smaller panel I wrapped some twine around it. To finish the card I added some of my stitched leaves ( still one of my fave LawnFawn dies).

You still have some time to play along with us for your chance to win the prize, which is an awesome fall themed die set from Frantic Stamper!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
Monica

Supplies:
LawnFawn- Happy Harvest, Gingham backdrops, Stitched leaves dies, pattern paper and twine
Misc- cardstock, Copics

Halloween Mr. Batty


Today I'm sharing another Halloween card this time for the Open Minded Crafting Fun Blog. This month our theme is halloween/ dress up. Hope you stop by the blog to see all the other wonderful cards from the DT and  play along for your chance to win from one of our sponsors.


I started by die cutting the black cardstock and adding it to my cardbase. I colored my digi with copics and trimmed it down before adhering it to a piece of pattern paper. After adhering them to the cardbase I added a candy corn colored twine bow to Mr. Batty. I think he's is absolutely adorable and I love this image. 

I can't wait to see what you have to share with us! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Happy Halloween House

 I'm popping in today to share my first card for the Die Cut Diva's September theme (which is one of my favorites). Be sure to stop the Diva's blog for more info. Our the theme is Fall and fall holidays and wonderful sponsor is Frantic stamper



I love making Halloween cards, so that is what I started with!


I started by stamping my house and the die cut it out. Next I die cut the trees and tombs out of black and 2 shades of gray cardstock. I then used distress ink to make my background and splattered the some water on it. I used copics to color the windows on my stamped image. I then stamped my sentiment on the lightest layer of gray before adding all my pieces to the cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by and have great day!!!

Supplies:
Penny Black- Dark City Dies
Art C- stamp and die set (Purchased at local Michaels 2016)
