Frosted Designs Color Challenge

First, I must say "Happy Birthday" to my mom!

The Fabulous Friday Challenge Color inspiration at Frosted Designs this week is a beautiful fall inspired montage:

I've created this card using Basic Grey paper for the background and shipping tags for the pumpkins. The pumpkins are colored with Tim Holtz Distress stains and ink and run through a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The leaves are Making Memories holly leaves with the points rounded off to make squash leaves out of them. I've added a CTMH brown pearl to each just for fun! The vines are rub-ons from my stash, not sure of the manufacturer.

I hope you are inspired to make a project using the gorgeous colors of fall! Link it up at Frosted Designs to be in the random draw for a fabulous prize from One Stop Card Crafts!

Die Cut Heart Card

Stuck on U Sketches has a challenge up to use a die cut heart. At CKC Valley Forge last July, I purchased a set of four scalloped nesting heart shaped dies made by Lifestyle Crafts. This was the perfect challenge to try them out! I used Fancy Pants Designs paper and folded a base, then offset the die so the left hand side wouldn't cut, leaving me a fold for my card. Using the next size smaller die, I cut the center for the front of my card. I outlined some of the print with a gelly roll sparkle pen and added a flower and brad. I think it's cute!
