Happy birthday pumpkin


 
   This week along with the usual anything goes theme the QKR Stampede challenge has the twist  pumpkins. I decided to make a card for an autumn birthday.
   I wrapped three rows of narrow ribbon around some spotted paper that I had in my stash.and then matted and layered this onto orange followed by white card. The image called thinking was coloured using Promarkers then cut out using an oval die and matted onto another piece of orange card. The pumpkins used as embellishments were cut from a page from Hunkydory's Little Book of Autumn. The sentiment was a black peel off.

Pumpkin fun


   I made an easel card base from white card and matted purple card from Hunkydory onto the base of this. The image from the House Mouse Designs cardmaking celebration collection was also matted onto the same card before attaching to the front of the easel. The three circular stops were also from the same collection. The sentiment which I edged with orange gold edged peel off was from the Creative World of Crafts 'Sentiments from the heart' popper pad.

   The theme for this fortnight's challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids is early holiday wishes. It is being sponsored by
Dollar Graphics Depot who are offering a $15 gift certificate
and
Dies R Us who are also offering a $15 gift certificate



   I have gone for contemporary colours for this Christmas card. I matted paper from Papermania onto gold mirri and then wrapped blue satin ribbon round it before matting onto white card.
   The image from Dollar Graphics Depot is from their Brrr It's Cold set and I coloured it using Promarkers in the main. I used a gold gel pen for the snowflake and Stickles on the snow. After cutting it out using a Spellbinders oval die I matted it onto purple card and then attached it to the card. Using a Tattered Lace die I cut five snowflakes from gold mirri and attached these to the ribbon.

   I cut an aperture from a piece of square card using a die from Tattered Lace's engaging elements circle frame set. Using the circle die from the same set I cut the leaves and after colouring them using Promarkers attached the around the edg of the aperture.
