It's Time to Celebrate

Our sponsor this month has a HUGE number of stamps and dies to choose from.  Do hop over and have a look.  Just click on the logo above.

So here's my Fall inspired card using some Hero Arts stamps and a Spellbinders circle die.

Here's how I made this one
1. Die cut Spellbinders Die circle die out of scrap card to make a mask
2. Sponge on Distress inks in Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass through the mask
3. Remove mask and stamp the trees (Hero Arts Color Layering Fall Tree)  in Hero Arts Cup o'Joe ink.
4. Stamp the layering leaves in Frayed Burlap, Spiced Marmalade, Aged Mahogany, Mustard Seed inks
5. Stamp the sentiment - From an older Hero Arts set
6. Layer onto black mat and then white card base.

thanks for stopping by and don't forget to join us for the last days of our monthly challenge.

The Frantic Stamper is our fabulous sponsor

Here is my sample.for September.27th at Die Cut Divas.You can couple the stamped image with Stitched Rectangle dies from the Frantic Stamper.  I thought the lavender/purple and the orange/red colors were perfect for an Autumn challenge. That wonderful bird is part of the same set.

Poinsettia Christmas

Hi Dawn here again.  Have you seen all the amazing companies that our sponsor this month has in stock?  Yes the Frantic Stamper site is chocka block full of amazing products.

Although our challenge this month is about Fall/Autumn, I have chosen to make a Christmas card as it's the time of the year I start thinking about making these types of cards (except it's Spring time where I live!)

I have used the new Hero Arts Antique Poinsettia to stamp with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto red and green card and then used the matching Dies to cut out the flower layers.  I have not done anything about colouring the stamping just making the most of the coloured card.   I have used some PP from a very old MME Lost and Found Christmas pack and layered it onto some red card and then the white base.  One very quick and fun card done.

Be sure to visit our sponsor (here) as you will be surprised how much stock is on hand.  And do remember to add your Fall oar Fall Holiday cards to our challenge this month.

A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies

Die Cut Divas' challenge is Fall and Fall Holidays. 

The Frantic Stamper is our fabulous sponsor

Would you believe:
A collective name for a group of butterflies is called a 'Kaleidoscope'. However others have called it a 'Swarm' or 'Rabble'. In addition, the collective name for a group of caterpillars is 'an army'.

You can couple the stamped image with Stitched Rectangle dies from the Frantic Stamper. Yes, here is my kaleidoscope of butterflies.

Even though I have a lot of yellow in the swarm of butterflies, I'm ok with it.  
As they say, you learn something new everyday. I'm at A Bit of This and That.
