The image I’ve chosen for my card is ‘Halloween Selfie’ and I’m using the pre-coloured image + the background image.

My images have been printed onto X-Press It Blending Card and the main image has been fussy cut using my Silhouette Cameo. This has then been mounted to the card using Dimensionals. I’ve used a couple of co-ordinating layers of cardstock along with a black base card and finished off my creation with a ‘Happy Halloween’ sentiment.

A Little Hello

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is….

‘Colours of Autumn/Fall’.

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from her site.

My card today is a very quick and simple one to make. I’ve used a pre-coloured image called ‘Autumn Enchantment’ and teamed it with a background created from the ‘Rooted In Nature’ stamp set from Stampin’ Up.

My image was printed onto Cryogen White cardstock, trimmed and layered onto a piece of Old Olive Cardstock. My background and base pieces are Very Vanilla and have been stamped in Old Olive, Cajun Craze & Pumpkin Pie to co ordinate with the colours in the image. My sentiment has been stamped with Cajun Craze and then punched out using the Classic Label Punch which I have trimmed off the right edge.

Supplies:
Stamps: Autumn Enchantment (The Paper Shelter), Rooted In Nature & Itty Bitty Greetings (Stampin’ Up)
Card: Very Vanilla & Old Olive (Stampin’ Up, Cryogen White
Ink & Markers: Old Olive, Cajun Craze & Pumpkin Pie (Stampin’ Up)
Dies & Punches: Classic Label Punch (Stampin’ Up)
