Ah Crap...

The Male Room has a really fun challenge - My Bad/Sorry.  I had to use this fun Unity stamp set:
I used an old Operation Write Home sketch, fussy cut the toilet, and layered up.  Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By for our October Eves challenge!!

Words 2 Craft By #58 - October Eves

The Words 2 Craft By prompt this month is:
The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves.  Humbert Wolfe

I inked up an old dictionary page, and punched out the leaves.  I added a plaid stamp in off white ink and done!!  Show off your October Eves by November 7 by linking up HERE.

Tuesday Morning Sketches

I'm on a roll!!  Four posts in 3 days!  Their sketch:
My version:
The card is black and cream with red accents.  Love this layout, will be making more like this with a sympathy sentiment.  I bought the stamp set used - anyone know the name or creator?

Sketch Challenge

I played with some fun media today:
The sentiment was heat embossed with JudiKins Lapis Lazul powder.  I used glitter paste embossing medium to a sunburst stencil, then die cut the circle.  The grass was also die cut.  The fancy border is an old Martha Stewart punch. 

Sharing with: 
The Paper Girls Mixed Media challenge and The Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge:


With my embarrassingly large craft hoard, I was shocked to learn that I don't have a pumpkin die or punch!  Sign.  I had to make do with what I have on hand. 

I found the purple letter and ghost background paper in a box of goodies gifted to me.  The pumpkins were cut with oval dies, embossed with a Sizzix texture plate, and inked with Tangerine ink.  The stems and leaves were hand cut. Sharing this with the Cards In Envy Spooky challenge

Congratulations Kangaroo

Try Stamping on Tuesday has a sketch challenge this week:
Here is my version:
Kangaroo from SU! Animal Outing, not sure about the sentiment.  Anyone?  Paper from an older Studio Calico pad.  I have an embarrassing amount of 6x6 paper pads.  I am trying to be better about using rather than hoarding...  Check back on October 10 for the new Words 2 Craft By challenge!

I love fall.  The crisp air, the pretty colors, the smell of bonfires in the air.  Hard for me to imagine, when it's is 90+ degrees and very humid in Ohio today!!
I used a Spellbinders die in positive and negative ways.  The stamped background is Winnie & Walter and the plaid paper is Lawn Fawn.  Not sure which one I like better!!

Sharing this with:

I used the positive and negative of the leaf die.  

Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By, where our prompt comes from F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.
