Simply Create Too – Challenge #117 – Fall Colours

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.

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 379 – 1st of September – Technique Challenge: Embossing.

DTbadgeI have not used my Cricut machine in such a long time, I decided to use it for this challenge. I friend of mine asked me to design a stock car card for her uncle. She wanted to celebrate “Uncle’s” Dy vs Father’s Day. I used my Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge and embossing the background using Cuttlebug Diamond Plate embossing folder. Her uncle James used to run a stock car and his number with 75.
