Carving Pumpkin Time

Okay...maybe not "quite" time! If you know me, I use one of my window cut files at least once a month.  I wanted to do a video and put a tealight behind the window so you could see how much fun this card can be, but I ran out of steam!

So many fun sets release this month at Doodle Pantry! Carving Ants is one of many. It may not be CAS but it was quick and easy.  I used my Cameo to cut out my window, and the P&C feature for the image.  Using the brick embossing folder, some dies and punches, it was done in a flash.

There's still plenty of time to join Doodle Pantry's September Challenge.  You will receive the Jingle Ant Set just for participating (of course follow the rules...haha) and a chance to win a wonderful gift certificate to the Doodle Pantry Store.

Masculine Fall Card

I don't do many masculine cards and I'm always "in a pinch" when I need one.  I did this card awhile back and forgot to post until I pulled it out to use...gosh...sure glad I had it.  I'm thinking this was an older Hero Arts set with inverse image.

Apple Harvest Time

Early September is the time for picking and selling apples here in the Upstate of SC and NC border.  I tend to wait till early October when the trees are at their most beautiful peak of colors to take that special ride through the mountains to my favorite apple orchard.

This is another wonderful set released this month from Doodle Pantry called Apples.  There is a variety of red and apple images to choose from along with some lovely matching papers and some sweet sentiments. Remember to participate in this month's challenge to receive the darling Jingle Ants Set for free.

I'm entering my card in 2 Sisters Challenge #1612 Sisters Challenge #161 using the sketch below.

A2, stitching, pop-ups, MB stem and leaf, silver apple charm, and twine  I printed out 2 images and layered for dimension.


Apple Butter Time

When I get to feeling better...cough cough...sneeze sneeze.... the first thing I will be doing is heading to my favorite place in the mountains for my apples.  I make applesauce, dried apples for snacking, stewed apples, apple jam and apple butter.

I used the P&C on the pre-colored apples from the Doodle Pantry Apple set, using glossy accents and pop-ups for added dimension.  I made several of these cards to give with the jars of apple butter and/or to remind friends the jar is coming. The shaped card file is called Canning Jars - Preserves from My Scrap Chick.

Feel a little green so headed to bed

Yup...been feeling a little green due to cough and cold...yuck!

I did several P&C of FrankenBirdie from Doodle Pantry's new September Release set.  This is the second card I made with the pre-colored image.   I tried to give the appearance of him headed upstairs.  My inspiration was Kitty Kraft.  

Once I found the paper it was easy since it was all dies and leftovers.  I think I kept it CAS.  The stitching is the only thing that takes about 2 minutes. Be sure to join in on Doodle Pantry's September Challenge and receive the Jingle Ants Set free!  Check out the new releases.

....I love Halloween!

I hope you caught my little humor here.  This new release set from Doodle Pantry is called "Franken Birdie".  I used the pre-colored image. I'm entering it in the Sentimental Sunday Challenge #171...something "tweet".

I haven't used this style card in over a year so I thought it was time to give it a try IF I could remember how to do it.  I cut Franken Birdie out using my P&C feature on my Silhouette Cameo as well as my "Trick or Treat" sign.  Love my Cameo!

Jingle All the Way

Yippee....it's September Release Day at Doodle Pantry.  The darling pre-colored image I used is from the set called "Jingle Ants".  There are 3 different images, sentiments and papers..how about that!!!

On the inside, I used the Inky Antics Golden Honeycomb paper.  When the card is completely opened, you can see the nice round ornament, ball or bell but I couldn't keep it fully opened and take the picture so that's why it doesn't look so round...haha

Come along and join us in our Doodle Pantry September  Challenge which starts at 12 noon today.  You will receive this darling set just by following the rules and participating in the September challenge.  You will also have the chance to win a great gift certificate to the Doodle Pantry Store.
