Christmas Craft Creations September Challenge Reminder


When I found this paper in my stash it reminder me of eucalyptus, though I know it’s supposed to represent poinsettias.
Th base card is heavy white card stock that  cut with a large Spellbinders scalloped die that I folded in half.
With another of the dies I cit the patterned paper and applied it to half the base card , then applied enamel dots from Wplus9 “Autumn Splendor Red”.
On more white card stock I stamped the koalas from MFT Stamps “Cuddly Koalas” using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored them with Copic markers.
On more white card stock I stamped the sentiment from MFT Stamps “Tweet Holidays” using the same ink and die cut it with a die from MFT Die-namics “Stitched Oval Word Window” and foam taped it to the base card .
I also foam taped and glued the trimmed out koalas as if they are holding on.

What shaped are you inspired to try for this challenge?

As you can tell from the tic-Tac-toe card I chose the left column for my inspiration.
(Though it could also be the bottom row)
This card is for a friend who finally decided to retire.
The base card is white linen card stock with a layer of dark brown card stock.
The kraft card stock layer was embossed with a We R Memory Keepers quilted embossing folder.
The man piece is water color paper that I created an Autumn scene with Distress markers and AI Watercolor Sets “Covered Bridge Mini Set” and “Foliage Set #3”.
This I die cut with a die from MFT Die-namics “Inside & Out Stitched Square STAX”.
The sentiment, Crafter’s Companion “Relax” die, is cut multiple times from kraft card stock and glued together for dimension.

tire swing adventure...


Swinging on a tire can be a REAL adventure!
The base card is white card stock that I stenciled with Distress Oxide faded jeans for the sky and crushed olive with MFT “Grassy Edges” stencil for the grass.
With more white card stock I die cut the clouds using MFT Die-namics “Stitched Cloud Edges”.
On the upper cloud I stamped a sentiment from MFT Stamps “Up in the Air” set using Memento tuxedo black ink.
On another piece of white card stock I stamped the image from Stampingbella “tiny townie tire swing” using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored with Copic markers.
This I trimmed out with a craft knife no scissors.
From scrap card stock I cut two small circle frames and glued the image “rope” I’m between.
On the base card I glued a circular plastic piece and laid the image circles over t.
To attach the clouds I used two layers of foam tape and placed glue on the plastic piece before attaching the clouds.
Once done it swings...
