Colorful Leaves!

With the cooler weather and beautiful, colorful leaves outside, I wanted to share some fall ideas with you.  Enjoy!


This turkey is using the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge for the body, head, and feathers (sand to texturize).  I random stamped words in the background, used a chocolate re-inker and our CTMH spray pen to spritz extra color over the whole card.  His little cheeks are blushed and I gave him a 3-D beak by folding a square in half.  The candy body is made from CTMH treat cups and filled with Reeces Pieces.





These 2 cards are created with one of my favorite card cuts.  The first card uses Flirty Dimensional Elements highlighted with Liquid Glass and some green Glitz Glitter Gel.  The second is stamped using B1395 So Grateful CTMH Stamp Set.  I used the faux stitching around the outside edge of the top frames.  The bottom edges are stripped with CS from the Flirty Paper pack.  I used Hemp on one and bakers twine on the other with Pewter Badge Buttons to secure the card closed.



You can see in this picture how the card comes together.  The dimensions of this card base is 4.25″ x 12″ with scored fold lines at 5.25″ & 5.5″ leaving the extra bottom flat of 1.25″ to fold up.  Use a 1″ stripped decorative piece at top edge of this piece and secure with Pewter Badge Brads.




This card is using Scrap CTMH Cricut Artiste leaves that I had left-over from another project.  Instead of throwing them away, I decided to attach them to a Chocolate CS base layer creating my own custom B&T – allowing me enough customer B&T to make a few items.  I used an acorn from the CTMH Color Ready Arbor Wooden Shapes pack.  Rub ink onto the shape and cover in Liquid Glass.  The banner that holds the CTMH Artiste Thanksgiving message, is actually the strap from the 3-D Artiste Baby Bootie container.  Of course the whole card has distressing with ink – direct and sponged.





This card is using the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cupcake liner from the Thanksgiving Key.  I have used these cuts for many things besides cupcakes!  It also uses a leaf from the Color-Ready Accent Arbor Wooden Shape, wooden button and Chocolate Waxy Flax.









This card again uses our awesome CTMH Treat cups and contains CTMH Chocolate buttons – a perfect gift for your paper-crafting friends (and my hostesses in October)!
