Good Morning!! I am so excited I got to play last night and I got three challenges done with my two cards!! I actually made 3 but can't show the other one :)
Anyways the first card is for A Spoonful of Sugar ~ and the theme is Fall into Autumn. (The sketch is from the WOJ challenge a couple weeks ago!! I also masked and stamped three images which was the challenge at Sukkersott a couple weeks ago as well!! LOL I am just happy I finally finished it!)
The punch is from Martha Stewart and the leaves are from the cuttlebug. I went over them with Fired Brick and Vintage Photo distress crackle paint. The little leaves on my image are leftover from the punch.
I also want to submit it for the GDT at Whiff of Joy! You have until the 19th I believe to enter your cards. The paper is from MME and it is actually Christmas paper but I thought it was nice for Autumn.
My next card is for the challenge over at Just Magnolia and they want to see embossing. I used a Halloween Cuttlebug folder, punched out some designs and then sanded them down. I also used the sketch provided by Sketch Saturday. Since the orange distress inks are too bright for this MME paper I decided to play around to get one closer in color. I mixed 1 drop of Walnut stain and 4 or 5 drops of Spiced Marmalade and I think it got pretty close. I love that I got to get some distressing in here ~ Halloween is perfect for the dark distressing I think! Sentiment is PTI and the flowers are the new Primas ~ Country Elegance.
Well thanks so much for stopping by and for sticking with me for my longer post! I know I had to post both cards now or the challenges would be over and I would miss them again! LOL
We have a very busy day today starting with a funeral and ending with Teacher's conferences!! Already ~ I cannot believe it!
I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks so much for all your lovely comments!!
