Fall Cards 2014

While I was preparing to take my board exam I was listening to review CDs and so I needed something to do with my hands. I spent some time with my Big Shot, scrap paper, a Quickutz pumpkin and nesting leaves, watercolors and glue.
 
I used my watercolors to paint on watercolor paper and then cut out leaf shapes. I also used my pumpkin die to cut out pumpkins with scrap orange paper.

this card is made from all scraps, even the ribbon is a small bit of scrap.
The stamp set is one that I have had for years and haven't used before now, it's CTMH S1209 Fall Favorites Stamp of the Month. I also used my newest stamp, S1409 Family is forever Stamp of the Month for the sweet moments sentiment.

With the exception of the leaves, the remainder of the paper and ribbon are all scraps.
Again I used the CTMH S1209 stamp and I even added some leaves and a pumpkin to the inside.

I just love how this one came out, it looks like my scarecrow is in the middle of a pumpkin patch. I wish I was better with watercolor pencil coloring, I might have to work on that now that I have more time! I again used the S1209 stamp here.

I actually dove into my October 2014 CKC kit to complete this card. The tag on the front and the stamp on the inside were from that kit. I used up several more bits of scrap paper here. The stamp is CTMH D1455 Blessed. I even dove into my bowl of leftover embellishments that live on my desk to find that little brad on the tag (yah me).

Christmas Cards 2014

Here is another card that I made for the 2014 Christmas season.
Those little black looking spots are actually bits of bling.

Here's a better picture of the bling.
 
Paper: Paper Studio, RUM
Stamp: SU Wishing You
Die: Quickutz Snowflakes
Ink: CTMH grey wool, grey flannel

The inside has a couple of center bits from the snowflakes I punched out and some washi tape. I also showed the envelope I stamped.

Silly Wonderful Funny Faces--August 2013 CKC

This layout was inspired by Glitter girl Adventure 33--Out of the Box.
I also used my August 2013CKC Kit, though mostly scraps from the kit and flower cut outs.
 

I added lots of brads on this layout!! I haven't done that for awhile, I really need to pull the brads out again!

I love all these layers of cut out flowers!

I love mixing fonts!

October 2014 CKC--Just Born

Here is another layout using my October 2014 Splendor of Nature kit.
 
Not only did I use lots of stuff from my October kit but I added a few bits from my leftover embellishment bowl that lives on my desk.
 
That ribbon bow is from my leftover bowl, I just grabbed another leftover bit of ribbon to give the side pieces. You can really tell in this photo how I frankensteined the O, it was originally a Q.

I modified another bow that was in my leftover bowl. I made them several months ago for another kit and just never got them used up.  The brad on the WoW tag is also from my leftover bowl.

The bow is again from my leftover bowl as is the pink tulle ribbon.

I used some green paint and watered it down and then splattered it on my layout.

October 2014 CKC--Hello Sweet Sisters

This is the 3rd layout I have made with my October 2014 CKC kit Splendor of Nature.

This is my favorite paper in the collection and I actually cut out the portion behind the pink quatrafoil paper.

I was able to add in the 2 bee brads that I added to the kit, one on the top right corner and the other on the bottom left corner.

I had some more of the chalkboard chipboard that I used onj this layout. I also ran my puffy paint word through my zyron sticker maker and  added it here.

The diagonal stipe paper is a protion of a project life card that I had left over after stamping an image out on it. The Hello card and the stripe cards are project life cards.

This is totally not how this corner started out, I had completely different embellishments down here before I changed them all out for these.

October 2014 CKC leftover letter cards

Tuesday I showed you which letters I had left over to make words, after I got done making words I still had quite a few letters and symbols left. So what's a girl to do, go to pinterest for inspiration of course!

I typed in leftover letters and one of the things that came up was a card made like this one. I had no idea that I would be using the typewriter wood veneers that I included in the kit to make these cards! I love, love, love how these turned out!!

This is the inside of the first card, all the stamps and the ink are from CTMH.

Here's another one with move leftover letters.

And the inside.
And the final card.
And the inside of this one.


That's it for today.

October 2014 CKC--Sweet Baby Girl


This is the 2nd layout that I made using my October 2014 CKC Splendo or Nature kit.

The large chipboard alpha did not have any adhesive left on it and I added some but the letters still seem to be lifting.


Here's a close up of the alpha and the bits of sequins with bling in the centers.

Pretty sure you can tell that I frankensteined the Y in baby.

I added the acetate piece with New Baby Girl to Love over a piece of journal paper and then added that older Love sticker over that.

I layered lots of bits to this corner and then I stamped the quote "You don't choose..." on a project life card and then used a spellbinders label to cut it out.

The strips down the side are actually stips of paper.

October 2014 CKC leftover letters

In my kit I had several alphas that were almost used up, so I took what was left of each set and combined where I could and created these words and oh ya....faces. I thought it might even be fun to paint them to match....but I'm still not sure about that yet.
Anyway...here they all are, so if you have any suggestions of other words or phrases I can make with the green/pink ones down the left side, just leave a comment to let me know!
