Two Fall Cards!

A couple weeks ago I made some Fall cards for a little challenge at The Clique Facebook page for World Cardmaking Day, so I thought I should share them here while Fall is still in the air!

The first card was a challenge to use vellum and a diecut. I layered a handcut vellum banner over a woodgrain paper background and tucked some diecut leaves behind it.

 Then, I used the 'thankful' and pumpkin cut files from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine - it's free and  you can download it here along with other free files!

I used some Fancy Free patterned paper behind my pumpkin and added some sequins and a couple drops of yellow Izink. Some faux stitching using a red pen on the vellum finished it off.

For my second card the challenge was to fussy cut an image, and I watercoloured a cute little pumpkin girl stamp sitting on a tree stump, both older stamps from C.C. Designs. I masked off the girl to make her look like she was sitting directly on top of the stump and then used Distress and Tombow markers to watercolour the image before fussy cutting her out.

I layered her over the free string art cut file from The Clique and backed the cut with BoBunny papers from the Believe collection. I love the look of different papers behind a diecut!!

Inside, I used a sentiment and pumpkin image from the Pretty Cute Stamps Thanksgiving Eats stamp set.

I added some pretty sequins and a button from the 28 Lilac Lane collection, and used a cute little ribbon across the top of my card. I gave this to my niece at Thanksgiving, which in Canada was a couple weeks ago, and she loved it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful, crafty week!
