Die-namites November Inspiration Challenge

This is my card for the Die-namites November Inspiration Challenge.  I used a die called Summer Branch and cut the branch out of some blue glittered fun foam from the Dollar Tree.  I added some iridescent rhinestones to the branch after mounting it on a bright copper colored foil cardstock.  I used some dark blue Stardream cardstock and an autumn themed pattern paper as background and mounted it on orange cardstock.

The inspiration for this challenge is this photo:

Thanksgiving Blessings

This month's DCWV Stack-a-holics Challenge uses this sketch:

I used papers from the Harvest House stack.  Circles were cut with Spellbinders Ironworks dies.  /the felt turkey came from a garage sale find.  The flourishes were cut from a Prickly Pear die.  I used a Krylon gold leafing pen to outline the dottedlayer and the dotted circle.  I added a glittered pumpkin and some webbed gold ribbon.

Happy Thanksgiving!.................Paulette

Autumn Symphony


This month's challenge uses this Autumn themed mood board:

I used papers from DCWV and my favorite Rubber Dance Art Stamp.  I edged my diecut oval with a Krylon gold leafing pen.  I added some silk leaves that I embellished with gold Stickles.  I added a bit of gold "splatters" from my Krylon pen.  A gold spider web ribbon completes my design.

Loving the cool, crisp Autumn air and the gorgeous colors of my favorite season.....................................Paulette

Autumn Wheelbarrow

I created this card for the Die-namites Dies October Inspiration Challenge.  The challenge uses this photo and requires an autumn or Halloween theme.

I chose this die as my starting off point.  
The woodgrain designer paper is from the DCWV Good Wood stack.  A friend supplied the leaves.  The center leaf is a rhinestone maple leaf.  I also added a spider web gold ribbon.  I used a Kyrlon gold leafing pen to outline the image and to splatter gold onto the card.

Sending a wheelbarrow of warm wishes your way.....Paulette

Ocean Poetry

The challenge for October on the Unruly Paper Readers' Art Quest is to use this mood board for colors and to design with a nautical theme:

I chose stamps from Rubber Dance Art Stamps,  I used a Spellbinders embossing folder to create the background.  I stamped with faded jeans Ranger distress ink and added several half pearls for embellishment.

Thanks for looking......................................Paulette

Spooky Delights!

                       Bats and Spiders and Ghosts...Oh My!

The October Stack-a-holic Challenge on the DCWV blog uses this sketch:

My card uses the DCWV Spooky Delights stack.  I won this whimsical Halloween themed stack in a DCWV Facebook comment contest.  The papers are all from this stack and the embellishments I added to my design are a Cricut ghost, a spider brad and a couple of googlie eyes.
I'm loving this DCWV stack so much that the papers also inspired these two Halloween cards:
                                                       Cats in the Grave Yard

                                                              Trick or Treat Bus

I'm making plans for an exciting Halloween...............Paulette
