Today I made a fall birthday card for a friend. The challenge was from Papertrey and it was to use your dies to cut a shape and layer it to make a faux chipboard piece. I used a cereal box and cut this basket 5 times and it turned out perfect. I'm still loving my basket set and making lots of cards for every season with a basket. I'm also glad I purchased the extra sentiments. Happy card making.

It's been a while since I posted because I was taking an online card class. It has been so much fun but I haven't made many cards, just having fun learning. This card I made using the resist tech. with paint. It's fun to get the paints out and get a little messy. Can't wait to try more resist.

Today I used the sketch from Card Patterns to make my card. I turned the sketch on it's side and did a little sewing. I used my new newsprint background stamp again. I think I will be using it a lot which is good. But I hope I don't overuse it. I also used my new stamp from the fall friendship jar set from PTI.

Okay, I love these McGill punches and how easy it is to make these flowers but I don't have any idea how I am going to send this card. Does anyone have any good ideas? This card turned out really fall like with new paper from Little Yellow Bicycle and the Newsprint stamp from PTI. I made a bunch of the sunflowers and can't wait to make more cards.

MIM challenge this week is to use a stamp that isn't a background stamp to make a background. I used this gift stamp from the Friendship Jar Holiday set. That made it even more fun for me as it's a Christmas set and I'm using it for a birthday. Very simple card. I feel like it needs some bling or some sparkles for a birthday card but I'm done with it for now.

This weeks MIM challenge was to use colored pencils and to blend. This is not my strong skill so I chose a small image to color and filled in with buttons. I used my wood grain embossing folder for the background. I can't seem to use it enough. I also used the picket fence stickles on my picket fence! I thought this card was a perfect transition from summer to fall on this first day of Sept. Have a great day.
