FCCB #335 - Leaves!

Happy Monday and welcome to another FCCB Monday challenge!

Challenge #335-Leaves
Make any card, scrapbook layout, 3D sculpture, etc. about leaves!

This Weeks Sponsor

Dreaming Tree SVG's

The winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images. If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

For this challenge I’m sharing a cute owl card using a cool leaf diecut from Dreaming Tree using the FREE Autumn Leaf Napkin Ring SVG file. I positioned it in a rectangle cut from the Cricut Shapes and sliced it to create an opening in the background.

I used Tattered Angels Mists to create an inky background on a piece of Bristol Cardstock and then placed it behind the opening. Another leaf decorates the bottom left and I cut a sentiment from the Straight From The Nest Cricut cartridge.

I watercoloured some cute owls from the new Lawn Fawn So Owlsome stamp set and popped them up with foam dots to give them some dimension. I then added some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins (save 15% at the SMS shop with code KARLA15) to finish it off!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out what the other Designers have come up with for this challenge and enter your own at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, with at least one Cricut cut, for a chance to win!

Canvas Corp Brands - Canvas Challenge!

Good morning! Hope you're all having a fantastic week! I just wanted to give you a peek at a fun challenge on the Creative Studio Blog that the wonderful Crew Members at Canvas Corp Brands were given - to create a project using a piece of Canvas Corp canvas. Now, this was so fun, because there are so many wonderful canvas pieces in the shop!! I chose to work with a Canvas and Burlap Zipper Pouch and you can see here how I added a cross stitch pattern to the burlap side of the bag and then added a stitched banner, Architextures rub-ons, buttons and Tattered Angels mists to the other side!

This little zipper pouch would be perfect as a pencil case, a great place to tuck a gift in, even a makeup bag and I love how you can customize it yourself!

I cut a little rectangle out of canvas and stitched it to a piece of Canvas Corp cording to act as a little zipper pull.

This sweet cactus was so fun to stitch directly on the burlap using a pattern from Cross Stitcher Magazine. I cut a tea cup out of another printed canvas sheet and coloured it with Glimmer Mists to use a little plant pot.

The buttons I chose from my stash add some more texture and interest and match the colours I used. And, in case you're wondering... that background paper is from the Architextures collection!

Here's a look at the VIDEO of all the projects created-

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to head over to Creative Studio Canvas Corp Brands blog where you can see details on so many of these projects and a supply list for my project above - and if you haven't yet checked out that blog you'll definitely want to! There is amazing inspiration all the time!!

Kitty Bee Designs #126 - Anything Goes with Optional Twist Animals!

Hi Friends! I hope you've been having a lovely week so far! I've had lots of fun creating projects lately and here's one more for you!  It's time for the midweek inspiration for Challenge #126 over at the Kitty Bee Designs Challenge Blog - Aloha Friday!

Challenge #126
Anything Goes w/ Optional Twist Animals

Super big thanks to our sponsor for this challenge
Limited Runs - http://limitedrunsstamps.blogspot.com/


Sparkle N Sprinkle - https://sparklensprinkle.net/

For this week's challenge I'm using the super sweet Puppy Love digi image by Limited Runs. Is he not the cutest?!!  I coloured him in with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers, both alcohol based, and added a few white gel pen details. 

I used a Hello Bluebird die set that comes with the stitched frame and the hello diecut along with that tiny heart and layered them over the background sponged with Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink. The SMILE and 'You've got mail' sentiments are also from Hello Bluebird Stamps and I love how they fit with the Happy Mail feel of the card.

Inside, I stamped a thank you sentiment with another Hello Bluebird Stamps set using Archival Ink and adding a tiny flower diecut, also in the die set above.

 I'm going to send this card to my daughter's teacher to thank her for a wonderful first week of school! Both girls have been over the moon about their teachers and starting a new year - so what could be better than that!
