I've used this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge to help me tackle a few more of the fall cards that I need to make, silly ol me can't just make 10 of the same cards, that wouldn't be any fun! The first card uses a Hero Arts sentiment, so I'll enter that in their month long fall challenge. The second card was inspired by this week's May Arts/Tattered Angels week, I've used some May Arts twine and I misted a cut out of the scallop die. None of these cards use any patterned paper so I'll enter these in the Wee Memories challenge, loving the new Tim Holtz Kraft Core card stock, amazing what a little embossing and sanding can do. And since it was the fabulous Simon Says Stamps shop that delivered some of these goodies to my door I'm going to play along with their current challenge to use dies.
And then since I'd stamped and fussy cut out the Waltzingmouse leaves I had some extras floating around the messy desk and decided to make another card with the Do More with Less challenge of clear block stamping. Love the texture it gives these squares. I used the Play Date Cafe colors as a source of inspiration, I thought maybe I could squeeze in a bit of red since some of the DT used red and some used orange, literal girl over here is struggling to go against the grain.
