Autumn Fun

My final entry into the current Paper Shelter Challenge uses one of their wonderful digis named "Comfy At Home." I used an A2 card base with a window cutout from my stash, taped a pretty autumn scene from an upcycled calendar "outside" of the window, colored, fussy-cut and attached the image to the card. In order to keep with The Paper Shelter Colours of Autumn/Fall theme, I used shades of brown, rust and orange Spectrum Noir markers.  [The sentiment on the card are both freebies. [Card front is from thelatestfind.com/2018/03/free-svg-letter-set.html and inside is from winkwinkink.com
I used some elegant scrapbook paper with golden leaves for the inside of the card, and fussy cut several leaves from a leftover scrap to attach to the sentiment on the front. So pretty.

This week's Recipe challenge at Bugaboo stamps was… well… challenging! It requires 1 ribbon, 2 images, and 3 buttons. I knew that I wanted to use the set "Mini Cutesy Halloween Blocks" and create the word "Boo" on the front of the card. Took some time, but I got that figured out. Ended up using more than two images… and hope that is okay. The Eeek sentiment, printed on vellum is a freebie from TLC Creations [createwithtlc.blogspot.com] and the inside sentiment is from Birdscards [birdscards.com/teenween-card-first-posted-thursday-october-29-2009] An added note- to make the cute little ghost transparent, I traced his image onto vellum, fussy cut it out and taped in place over the ghost block. However, I messed up on my first tracing and was going to toss it in the trash but instead used it for the inside sentiment. Easy Peasy. I also took close up photos of the front and inside so that you could see the details. These little blocks are so very cute.
