C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 387 – 27th of October – Add Ribbon, Sparkle and Shine


Fall is a favorite time of the year. Here in Ontario, Canada, we are blessed with the wonderful fall colours each year. Prince Edward County is famous for its pumpkins and I love taking that Fall drive and seeing all the pumpkins in the fields! My card today was inspired by those wonderful drives. I felt the AKV Fall Family Trio by Bugaboo Stamps was  a perfect subject.I coloured them with my Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils. I added some sequences for a little bling and a string bow.


C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 384 – 6th of October – Inspiration Picture


For this week’s challenge we have a photo inspiration. Fall is my favorite time of the year because of the beautiful colours we get here in Ontario, Canada. For these challege, I used a stamp by Stampendous called Fall Leaves Background. I made a couple of variations of the cards using distress inks to colour the stamp. The sentiment is from SSS and the stitched leaves die cuts are from Lawn Fawn.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 382 – 22nd of September – Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving

DTbadgeFall is my favorite season! I love the fall colours, sunflowers, pumpkins, and maple leaves. While Christmas tops my favorite holiday, Halloween is a close second. For today’s card I used a great fall flower jar design called jarautumn by Bugaboo Stamps. They actually have a whole series of jars to mark every occasion.

I am still in my Derwent Inktense watercolouring phrase, and that’s how I coloured this image. I used Neenah Solar white card stock as my base then layered it on different papers from my stash. The sentiment is from SSS.

SC2  GROUP BADGEFor our current challenge, the design team is asking you to create a “Fall Colours” card. I love Fall. It is my favorite time of the year. I used this adorable rubber stamp by Lili of the Valley, called “September Fairy”. I coloured her with Copic markers and mounted the image on a leaf embossed white card stock. The sentiment – fall – was created with letters from MFT - Die-namics LLD Bright Lights Alphabet.
