Unbe-leaf-able Fall Card

Hello crafty friends.  I think I am finally getting back in a fun creative groove.  Today I made this Fall Leaf card.  I used items from 3 different companies that I love.  The "Lattice Flourish" edge'able is new from Consumer Crafts... I hand cut the center pattern paper to add to the fall look I wanted.  The "Flourish Leaves" are an svg file from Little Scraps of Heaven which I added a larger backing layer for each leaf.  And last but of course not least my favorite stamp company Craftin Desert Diva's is where you can find that Unbe-leaf-able stamp..."Hey Pumpkin" stamp set.  I just made it curve the way I wanted as I stuck it to the stamping block... I love the way it turned out.  I also used some tiny flat yellow sequins, also from CDD called "Corn Maze".  I then added a dot of orange puffy paint to each sequin and also in groups of 3 on the other 2 leaves.

The stamps on the inside are also from Craftin Desert Diva's "Hey Pumpkin" stamp set. The bear is stamped with Wild Honey distress ink and the others (Sentiments inside and out) are stamped with memento black tuxedo ink.  Also on the inside I used the pattern pieces I cut off from the front and backed them with pieces of brown card stock I cut with my new ScanNcut2... if I haven't told you before... I Love this Machine!!!.

Christmas Owl-idays Card

Trying to get my crafty mojo back this week.  I decided to make a Christmas card using some Craftin Desert Diva's Stamps and some of my other new products (& a few old products too).

I made this an A-2 sized top folding card with ivory card stock.  The plain green and pattern green papers are from a 6x6 Authentique stack I picked up at the scrapbook expo that I went to with my good friend Cheryl Scrappinmini a few months back.  The red and Ivory card stock are from Recollections.  I used my brand new Crafter's Companion Embossalicious folder "Seasonal Music" to emboss the Ivory layer that I then took my Tim Holtz blending tool and went over the whole thing with walnut stain distress ink covering the corners and edges darker.  I then took abandoned Coral distress ink with my blending tool and went over corners and edges again blending in toward the center.  I rolled the left corner and rubbed that underside corner with walnut stain as well.  For the centerpiece of this card I used Craftin Desert Diva's  (aka CDD) "Simply Holidays Wordart".  I also cut the svg backing file for this stamp...provided by Tara from CDD in the Facebook share group!  I cut one in red to stamp onto with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and I cut another larger one in green to layer onto which I used foam tape to pop up this entire piece.   I used a white gel pen to color in the dots on the word snow and the fuzzy stocking pieces.  I also used an adorable owl stamp from CDD "Owl-idays" peeking out from behind the rolled music sheet.  I cut him out with my new SNC2, colored him in with my new Spectrum Noir markers and used glossy accents for the rim of the hat.  I also used some fun CDD "Merry Mix" sequins that I won a month or so back (playing bingo I think) for one of the new release party weeks... Thank you Tara... Love them!!!
Oh, and last but not least for the front I added some black enamel dots to the three corners of the music sheet and one medium sparkly one to the top of the little owl's hat that I also won from another company .

For the inside I carried over the same fun theme using some of the same papers as the front to add some trim strips.  I used a spellbinders die cut for the ornaments down the strip stamping each one with an owl face again from CDD "Owl-idays" stamp set.  I placed 1 of each color of the sequins to top off each hat and used a dark green sharpie to dot the center of each sequin.  I used the sentiment Happy Owl-idays from that same set.  At the bottom right corner I decided to use 2 stamped ornaments from CDD "Chill Out" stamp set onto coordinating papers.  I used my SNC2 to cut them out and inked them and cut inside piece out by hand ..... tricky but can be done lol

I am entering my project into these fun challenges:

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you all have a wonderful and crafty day!
