Happy Saturday everyone! We had a beautiful fall day here in New England - Kent and I went to a local orchard for some apples and delicious warm cider doughnuts - Yum!! Then we walked the bike path here in town to pretend we worked off all the doughnut calories!
Before we left for our fall adventure - I managed to create two cards. (don't we always!?!)
My first card was made for the Addicted to CAS challenge - Code Word Autumn/Fall and I used the Less is More Sketch for my design.
And here is my card for these challenges.
I used a brand new little stamp set I just got from PaperTrey Ink - called Polka Dot Parade #8 using it's coordinating die set to cut the pumpkin, stem and leaves. I used a Spellbinders Hexagon die to cut out the shape and layered some patterned paper behind it. I punched the 'Hey' with a 3/4" circle then snipped off the bottom to layer it over the PUMPKIN sentiment. My card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4"
My 2nd card was made for the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge - which was a color challenge this week. You had to use at least 3 of the colors.
I made a Halloween card with these colors - and while mine are not as bright as the inspiration - I did get them all in - orange, red, purple 2 greens and a lavender.
I used two Waltzingmouse stamp sets for my card - Candy Wagon (along with a free WMS cut file for the wagon) and Halloween Party.
I used two fun little stamps for the background - a leafy stem and a triple star stamp in the sky.
I hope you'll join in on the Waltzingmouse Fanatics color challenge - you have until 10/3 to link up your card!
