Day Two of Blog Hop!

Welcome to day TWO of  Falling for Halloween Blog Hop!!

Thanks for joining us to enjoy all the wonderful crafty inspiration for the fall and Halloween season. You should have arrived here from
Debbie @ www.debseclecticthoughts.blogspot.com

If you missed the beginning of the hop, please go to Maria's blog to start so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects.

I'll be giving away some fun Fall/Halloween blog candy too! You just need to leave a comment so I can randomly pull a name to win on Monday. You don't have to be a follower.

For my second project, I created two Fall cards.  All of the papers I used are from the SEI 'Field Notes' stack. I know Michael's carries it.  You might not think Fall when you first see it as it has butterflies etc. too.  For this project I utilized my cricut mini and also my Gypsy.  I first had to weld the maple leaf font together with the Gypsy.  I found the leaf font on the 'Go Canada' cartridge. Can't get a better maple leaf than that one :)  The other card is identical except I 'hid' the letters.  I decided to use the leftover letters that came out of the one cut for the other card. No waste! :)   For the shapes they are on, I used the Art Philosophy cartridge. This has some great shapes for frames I think.  Add some pop dots, and these thin gold sticker strips (my friend Adele in England sent them.. I've yet to find them around here) for a little elegance and two finished cards.

  14. I love your cards, Hun. I love how you took a paper collection that doesn't scream fall and made it work!
    Thank you!

    FYI: When I want metallic strip stickers I cut up the surrounding areas of HotP Dazzles stickers. There's usually about 1/4 inch around the main designs. It's a great way to use up scraps and you can get them in the US, too.
