Happy Purrthday!


Frantic Stamper is our fantastic sponsor for October and the winner will receive a fantastic die.  Here it is!
Priced at $25.99 - Prize for October

The challenge for October is Fall or Fall Colors.  You can work with the wonderful Fall colors or any holidays in October - for Americans, it's Halloween, so work your FALL MAGIC for us.

Frantic Stamper has so much to offer, stencils, stamps and dies.  We want to showcase some of the products along our month-long journey through October.  Frantic Stamper carries their own brand as well as many other well known brands, such as Altenew, Lawn Fawn, and Elizabeth Craft Designs.





I have fallen in love with this Magic Picture Changer die! It's really fun to play with when you're done. But... watch the video Lawn Fawn has for how to put it together! It's super easy when you follow along with the instructions.

 This is going to be my brothers birthday card. Lucky for me, my siblings don't pay attention to my blog! I felt this fit the theme because of the colors I chose-brown, tan, orange, and sky blue. Seems like fall to me-and my brothers birthday is in early November, so it suits.

For more information on the materials I used, please visit me at Just A Nutter Paper Crafter.

Fall Colored Bouquet

For my project today I am inspired by wonderful golden/orange palette of the Fall foliage.  

I have an alcohol inked panel left over from another project and I want to use it differently.


So I die cut it with Altenew Layered Floral Elements Dies and created a Fall colored bouquet.  For the background panel I dry embossed it with a Hero Arts Flag Pattern Stencil.


I also layered my bouquet with some vellum die cuts to give it some 'air' and movement, otherwise the alcohol inked pieces look rather dense.  I embellished the bouquet with a few art pearls.

Monika made a card for a kindergarten teacher, with whom children love to play and spend time



Dawn lives near a beach with a Boating Club so this is for the sailors 


LeeAnn loves spending time in her craftroom, and this card just puts it all in her perspective.

Arlene here. and I found the cutest little mouse at Di's Digis one day and have never used it until now.  I thought this mouse was so cute, really just adorable.  I like the extra flowers, but now that I'm looking at the Nuvo drops, I think fewer would have been better.  But the mouse is still adorable.  What do you think?

The sponsor for the September Challenge is Di's Digi Stamps.  So many fun images are available for you to create great projects either in black and white or pre-colored.  But you can still make a pre-colored image sparkle with your own unique talent and style.

The challenge is a "free time" experience.  It could mean quilting, vacationing, sewing, cardmaking, painting or whatever you like to do in your free time.  Tell us what your card represents.

The prize for September's winner will be a $6.00 voucher.


Picture

I wanted to use two new dies with this wonderful digital image.  I used three different stamps, "a note to say hello, Good Times and an anchor on the top panel.  I cut the bear image out and adhered him on the bottom panel.  It was such fun coloring this bear and I thought he should have that "5 o-clock shadow" look since he's having a snooze.  That's how it feels to me.

Distress ink sponged background - not sure of colors as I sponged two entire sheets with all the distress inks I had.

Fun Fall Background with Cover Dies


Hi Everyone! Kristina here today with another card for our fun free time challenge! What do you do in your free time? One of my non-paper related hobbies is backyard birding, which has of course also turned into backyard squirreling! It actually all started with a squirrel that was curious enough to eventually become hand fed. We named her Peanut Butter because thats her favorite treat. She's still with us 6 years later, along with a whole host of other friends. They eat me out of house and home!


The Process

  • I started with a beige piece of a2 sized card stock for my base, and on top layered two die cut panels going opposite directions to create a multi-toned background in a plaid pattern. 
  • Next I stamped colored and cut out an image from a Neat & Tangled stamp set
  • I adhered my image down to my background with foam squares, and adhered the whole panel down to an a2 sized card base. 
Next time you see a squirrel remember your crazy squirrel lady friend from the Die Cut Divas' blog! So crazy I've actually had my yard certified as a Wildlife Habitat by the national wildlife federation. Here's my little peanut butter patiently waiting for a snack.


Until next time :)

Supplies

** The background die I used from Lil Inker has unfortunately been discontinued but you can try this technique with many back ground dies.

Our September Challenge is "Free Fun Time".  You got it.  What do you do with your free time that is fun for you?  September is time when kids are back in school and a lot of parents consider it time to do some of the fun things they want to do.  Tell us what you like to do in your project.  Do you paint, sew, craft?  Be sure to let us know how FREE FUN TIME is reflected in your project.

Here is my project-


Living in Oregon, we have lots of areas to camp, hunt and fish. Fun time for us means getting back to nature once in a while, and watching wildlife is very easy and relaxing. For more information on this card, please join me at Just A Nutter Paper Crafter.
