Fall/Halloween Cards


Up for a fun sketch this week to get you started, well that is the challenge this week at
 The Crazy Challenge. Fall/Autumn colors are an optional twist. we are happy to be sponsored by Di's Digis once again and I chose to work with this adorable "mummy bear" image. We would love to have you play along with us, the DT has some great samples at inspiration posted here!

I am also entering this card in the Charisma Cardz "orange & black" challenge this week! Over at Forever Friends the challenge is to "use a sentiment with an animal image."


 It's all about "critters" this week at Lollipop Crafts and we are sponsored this week by
Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I was really excited to work with this fun image called "monster love" as this was my first from this company. I grabbed these halloween scraps and inked the edges with CTMH bamboo ink.  I loved the sketch this week at The Crazy Challenge so I used it on this card as well. Come join us and check out the rest of design team's AWESOME projects here!  Linda is joining us as a guest designer this week and so make sure to check out here blog here and leave her some love!

I am also entering this in the Little Miss Muffet challenge to use "animals or monsters."

Fall is in the air and the leaves are starting to turn those lovely shades of reds, yelllows, oranges and browns which provides the perfect inspiration for this week's challenge at Kaboodle Doodles. That's right "Show Us The Leaves" is the theme of challenge and we are sponsored by the wonderful
Meljen's Designs. When I saw this image called "fall wreath" I knew I wanted to work with it! I have colored it with copics and then ditressed the edges of my image and layers using my Tonic tool. This fun fall paper is from Creative Memories.  Stop by here and check out the DT samples this week and play along with us this week for your chance to win 4 images from Meljen's store!

I am also entering this card in the "distressing" challenge at Digi Doodle Shop. Also the Moving Along With the Times challenge is to use "autumn leaves" and Paper Play would like to see "autumn colors."

Hi Christy, your "fall wreath" is beautiful and I really like the layers there. You also have done a nice job with distressing all the layer paper edges as well as the background and strip. Organza ribbon is perfect little extra with the drawn ribbon on the wreath. Colour harmony is warm. Excellent outcome!

Thank you so much for inspiring creations and for joining this week's Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge. :)

Oh what wonderful Fall cards. I love all of them.

The LLM Monster all done up in orange and purple is FABULOUS. The orange argyle DP is stunning, now I have to dig out my argyle stamp to make my own.

Thanks for joining our Little Miss Muffet Challenge. Wonderful job!

Beautiful selection of cards, I love how you've coloured the little Miss Muffet monster, he really suits those colours. Thanks for joining in the Little Miss Muffet Challenge. hugs Donna x

Linda said...

Both cards are fabulous. The first image is just too cute. The second distressed look has a look of hammered tin about it. Very interesting.

Thanks for joining us at Digi Doodle Shop Best Challenges this week.
