Autumn Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers

I am so ready for Fall.  The heat and humidity in NC has been going on way too long.  I am looking forward to cooler days and hiking in the woods.  Bring on the cooler weather!  If we can't have that, at least we can have some fun with our newest Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers - Autumn.  This could be Autumn colors or an Autumn theme such as Harvest or falling leaves.  I am anxious to see your beautiful creations!

This lovely image is Fall Angel by Mayumi Ogihara.  I colored her with copics following along with the artist's rendition.  I am fairly pleased how she turned out.  I used a die to emboss the front of the card.  The banner and leaves were in my crafty junk drawer.  You know the place - elements and things that were not used on other projects.  I am afraid I have quite a bit in it!

Welcome Fall!  Come and play with us this Challenge!

Have a beautiful week!

Crafty Cardmakers Layer it Up Challenge

This week at Crafty Cardmakers we would like to see lots and lots of layers.

I used my circle dies and cut out several circles and layered them around the card.  The little frog and the sentiment are from Jane's Doodles. He was colored with copics and googly eyes were added for a bit of fun.   I hope this card will bring joy to a little one on their birthday.  It will be donated to the "Birthday Card Project".  I think it is quite cheery, with all the bright colors.  Not necessarily my style, but that's what challenges are all about, the chance to step out and try something new.  Come join us!

Here's to a beautiful and happy week.
