I REALLY struggled with the Shopping Our Stash Acetate Challenge, but I think my card came out really well!

Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Paper Inspirations sentiment heat embossed in silver on navy paper.  And I thought mirrored paper was hard to photograph!!!!

Wooden it be Nice....

I have been humming the Beach Boys the entire time I was working on this card!!!
The Shopping Our Stash challenge is to use wood on a project.  The camera is a wood embellishment, and the background is a wood looking textured paper, washi tape for the banners.  The October challenge at Words 2 Scrap By is to Fight Like a Girl - come join us!

Autumn Colors

I would love Fall a lot more if it wasn't a prelude to Winter.  I love the temperatures, smells, holidays, and lack of gift giving requirements. 
I think I made 7 of these, using different proportions and different positioning.  Some wound up in the recycling bin, others were adhered to card bases.  This one was my favorite.  Scattered Straw Distress ink, Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves stamping, dark green card base.  I am trying to learn that it is OK to make things that don't work out.  I can always recycle!!!  Come play along with the October Words 2 Scrap By challenge - Fight Like a Girl!!

I am sharing this with The Male Room - Autumn Theme. 

Birthday Butterfly

I have been playing with Distress Inks, and learning a lot. 
Spun Sugar Distress ink, masked with torn re-positionable paper, heat embossed with Versa Fine black ink and clear embossing powder.  Happy accident, the Distress ink was slightly damp, and the embossing powder adhered to the pink ink, also.  Sentiment from Unity, butterflies from Martha Stewart, ribbon from Offray.  The photo does NOT do justice to this card!!!  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month - come play along with us at the Words 2 Scrap By - Fight Like a Girl challenge!!!

I am adding this one to the Mod Squad Anything with Wings, and the Always Playing with Paper Birthday challenges.
