Digital Image, Paper Smooches

It’s Pumpkin Time

The air is finally getting crisper and pumpkin spice “this and that” is everywhere. Yes it is pumpkin time and the little ones are all excited to go to the pumpkin patch and find the perfect pumpkin to take home and carve. The pumpkin patch is full of scarecrows along the way.  The October Digi of the Month at DeeDees Digis can be found here. The set is appropriately called “Pumpkin Patch”.

I am honored to be a Guest Designer at DeeDee’s Digis this month and here is the card I created:

October-Digi-of-the-MonthI used Spellbinders Card Creator Distressed Edge for the layers and the image is from the set. The pumpkins were created by using the pumpkin in the “Goody Jar” set. Only the top of the sign image was used to stamp a sentiment from my stamp supplies. You can check out the opportunity for a good value for the Digi of the Month here.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I look forward to posting my  next card on October 7, 2015.

My Favorite Things, Paper Smooches, Stamps of Life

Words 2 Scrap By #21

Jake and the Never Land Pirates is an animated cartoon on Disney Jr. (based on Peter Pan) that many young children enjoy. I have to admit I enjoy watching it when I have little ones around and the songs are catchy. It is a great learning tool for preschoolers, it teaches counting, problem solving, math, and most importantly good social skills (like how to be a good friend).

Ahoy Matey is the challenge this month at Words 2 Scrap By . So with the little ones in mind I created this card.


This is a MFT Ahoy Matey stamp set. The papers are from Stamps of Life. I really held off on the whole shaker card thing, but once I tried the Fuse Tool, I was hooked. The image is colored with Copics and the bandana is paper pieced with the same red dotted paper used on the card. Paper Smooches dots and dashes die was used to create the dots along the image.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
