Spooky Tree Tag


 I started this tag with taping the orange and black houndstooth text-weight paper to a sturdy tag. Then, I cut the kraft card stock and stamped the elements using Versafine Onyx ink. The tree is from Impression Obsession, the spider web is from PSX, and I don't know where the bats or the sentiment came from. I used double-sided tape to secure that panel to the tag. After that, I stamped the sentiment on a narrow manilla-colored card stock scrap and adhered that to the tag. Next, I punched out a "moon" and glued it to the kraft panel. Finally, I tied a wide black organza ribbon to the tag.

Spooky Scene


This is an A2-sized card. I started by cutting the orange and black houndstooth text-weight paper. Then, I cut the kraft-colored card stock and stamped the elements on it. The tree (Impression Obsession) and the bats (?) were stamped using Versafine Onyx. Then, the sentiment (?) was stamped on a scrap of manila-colored linen card stock, and I punched out the "moon" using a circle punch.

Dawn


This tag measures about 2 3/4" by 6" without the tassel. I started this tag by blending the background. I used Distress ink pads in orange and two different blues. Then, using my MISTI, I stamped the tree scene in Versafine Onyx several times until I had a good image. The last thing I did was feed the tassel into the hole of the tag.

Fir Tree Tag


 This tag measures approximately 2 1/2" by 4 1/2". I started this tag by die cutting the tag itself out of manila-colored card stock. Then, I die cut the trees out of two different textured green card stocks. I glued the lighter colored trees in back to indicate that they are further away. Next, I stamped "for you" (Stampin' Up!) and "peace" (Hero Arts) using a gray Archival Distress ink. Finally, I tied a piece of ric- rack to the top.

Pears and Kumquats


This card measures 5" square. The embossing folder and dies are made by Stampin' Up!. 

I started this card by cutting a piece of reddish-brown sturdy scrapbook paper 5" by 12". I inked up an embossing folder by running the Distress ink pad (Gathered Twigs) on the raised side. Then, I laid the paper inside, closed the embossing folder and ran it through my Big Kick. After that, I cut it down to 5" by 10" and folded it in half.

To make the wreath, I die cut two different wreaths out of a light and dark green textured scrapbook paper. I intertwined them by moving some of the dark green leaves in the back to the front. Then, I die cut the pears out of a golden yellow card stock. Next, I cut the kumquats out of orange card stock using a hand-held round hole punch. I glued both elements to the wreath.

I made this card specifically for the challenge listed below, and I used all six colors matching them as closely as I could.

Happy Birthday


I started this red, A2-sized card by adding the plaid panel. After that, I die cut the sentiment out of a subtle white and yellow scrapbook paper along with a green circle to match the second panel. Then, I measured and, using my Silent Setter, made the holes to accept the square yellow brads. I taped the green panel to the card. I glued the sentiment circle to the green circle and taped the two to the green panel.

I was very proud of this card until I attempted to open it up... Does anyone else make cards that open upside down/backwards? I'll be sending this to my brother-in-law, thanking him for a recent gift! lol Only with family...

Fall is in the Air


This little round card will fit in an envelope sized for an A2 card. The challenge calls for a card that isn't rectangular or square, so I came up with a round one.

I started by stamping the gingham check on a manila-colored card stock using Archival Distress ink. Then, I cut it out using a pumpkin die. I cut out a gray one, too. I assembled the pumpkin on an A2-sized manila card base. Next, I cut it out using my largest circle die. I did aim to cut it short, so I could use the fold of the card base, but it wasn't meant to be. So, I used small staples to hold the circles together and folded it along that line. After that, I die cut two leaves and the curlicue out of a shimmery copper and a textured green card stock. Finally, I stamped the sentiment (Northwoods Rubber) and cut  it out with a circle punch and glued it down on top of the leaves.

Gray Gingham Plaid Pumpkin and Garland

I started this A2-sized card by stamping the garland (Stampin' Up!) at the top with Archival Distress ink. I punched out some orange "pumpkins" and glued them to the garland. Then, I stamped the gingham plaid on a piece of card stock to match the card base using Archival Distress ink. I die cut the pumpkin out of that as well as a piece of gray scrapbook paper. I combined the two and glued them to the card base. I added the stem and glued it down.

I like this one better than one I did previously here.

Pumpkin Garland


I made this A2-sized card especially for the challenge listed below. I started by stamping the garland (Stampin' Up!) at the top of the card using Archival Distress ink. Then, I punched out little orange dots with my hole punch and glued them to the garland. Next, I punched out small squares and arranged them on a gray scrapbook paper to make the "pillow". I placed that on another gray square. The other "pillow" is a golden yellow square.
