Best Combo EVER.

I am on cloud 9 with the color combo
from Unity Stamp Company's 
current challenge!

It's very rich & just
screams "FALL".

I used a few different sets on this card.
The background is Crunch Time.
That darling owl is A Hoot of a Day.

This second card uses the

That butterfly & sentiment
 from the 1/14 KOM.

H.B. Bee

I'm trying a new blog challenge
by a group called "Just Us Girls".
I like the honeycomb theme
and felt inspired to break out
the paper punch!
I used a Unity brand stamp,
some old K & Co paper scraps,
and a bee cut from an
adhesive border sticker!
Honeycombs make quick,
easy, cute cards.  I so glad the
blog challenge reminded me to
dig out my punch tool.

Creepy Bug

I'm not a huge fan of Halloween.
Still, it's fun to use the color scheme
and some unusual focal points.
I used a stamp from the Funkie Junkie Boutiqe
called Art for You.  The sentiment was from
Tim Holtz's Simple Saying set.

You can see more spooky inspiration
over at the Frilly & Funkie blog.
The current challenge theme is
"something wicked".

Bird Cage

I took inspiration from
the Tim Holtz blog this month.
He has a spooky tag
and uses some die cuts.
I decided to use my bird cage dies.
This die set makes great blank
greeting cards.
This card uses a leaf stencil.
I used a burlap stencil
on this and some
leaf die punches.
It's hard to tell,
but I used 3D pop dots under
the bird to make the cage
appear rounded.
Tim achieved this effect
on his tag.

Holiday Set

I'm getting a jump on my Christmas cards!
The color challenge over at Unity Stamp Company's
blog had a great combo to inspire all stampers.
I dug out my stamp set called
To make these cute holiday stocking cards,
I stamped on SIX different color papers!
Then I fussy cut them out & glued them on.
I tried some Stickles glitter on one card.
It makes the stockings seem more magical!

Glitter Leaves

It's fall here in Minnesota.
The leaves are turning red & yellow.
It is quite a sight!
Here is an easy project I made with some
frames from a garage sale.
I painted them with 2 coats of ivory &
sanded the edges and beaded areas slightly.
The inside was filled with vintage book pages.
Those glitter paper leaves were cut using the
Tim Holtz die cuts & my Sizzix.
Now I have some seasonal wall art!
