Happy Fall -- for Paper ala Mode Challenges

 It's Saturday, and it's time for a new challenge at the Outlawz Paper ala Mode. We are sponsored this entire year by We Are 3 Digital Shop. One lucky person will get a gift certificate to the wonderful shop!

Our theme this next two weeks is 'Happy Fall'.  We want to see your Autumn projects.

I love Fall colors!  These papers and printables from We Are 3 Digital Shop are so beautiful! It was easy to put together an Autumn-themed card with them:

The papers are from the Pumpkin Delight papers. I used 4 different ones from the collection on this card.  The pumpkin printable is part of the Autumn Labels set. There are 4 in this set.  The sentiment is part of the Itty Bitty-Fall Sentiment Set

The doily behind the printable is by Cheery Lynn.  The pumpkin ephemera is a die from Yvonnes Creations.  The crinkle ribbon is from D.L. Art

I hope you can join us at Paper ala Mode Challenges for our Happy Fall Challenge!

Witches Hat -- a New Release at All Dressed Up Stamps

 Today is a great day!  It's the 22nd of the month, and it's the day I get to showcase one of this month's new releases at All Dressed Up Stamps. There are 3 new releases each month, and they are all fabulous.  This month, though.  They made me squeal!  And, I'm not a squealer! 

Here is Witches Hat...

I colored Witches Hat with Copic markers, and cut her out with a Spellbinders square die.  Then, I went searching for papers to enhance it on a card.  As always, I found them in the We Are 3 Digital Shop. The orange paper behind Witches Hat is one of the Moody Night papers. The purple web paper is from the Web Works Collection.  The bats are part of a Spellbinders collection. I thought they were the perfect finishing touch on this card!

I hope you enjoyed this new release as much as I enjoyed creating it!  You can find all the new releases, and all of Wendy's wonderful artwork in the All Dressed Up Stamps Etsy Shop. You can see what the other talented design team members created in the All Dressed Up Stamps Facebook Group, and on the All Dressed Up Stamps Challenge Blog

Giraffes on Holidays -- for The Paper Shelter Challenges

 It's Wednesday, and that means a new challenge is starting today at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog. Every Wednesday, a new challenge begins.  If you use a Paper Shelter image, and you're the lucky winner of the challenge, you'll win a $30 gift certificate to the Paper Shelter Store.  Use any other image, and you'll get 3 images of your choice from the Paper Shelter Store. We have a very easy theme this week.  We just want you to use a digital image.  Of course, we'd love it if the digital image was from The Paper Shelter!

It's almost Halloween!  So, when choosing a digital image for today's challenge, I searched The Paper Shelter store for Halloween themed images and found LOTS of them!  It was hard to choose just one to use for today's 'Digital Image' challenge.  However, this one, particularly charmed me.  It's called Giraffes on Holidays, and I used the Halloween image from the set. 


I colored Giraffes on Holidays (there are 4 images in the set) with Copic markers.  Isn't he just so cute?  I wonder how long it took him to get his costume ready for his evening of Trick-or-Treating? 

I used digital papers from We Are 3 Digital Shop on this card, and the sentiment is from We Are 3, also. The background paper is from the Moody Nights paper collection. The sentiment is printed on one of the Inky Textures papers. The sentiment is part of the Halloween Wishes Sentiment Set.

The card base is part of a set of slimline dies by LDRS Creative. The elongated oval die is by Spellbinders, and the spooky garland is from The Scrapping Cottage. 

I hope you can join us this week (and every week) at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog. We Have such great digis that you can win, and I'd love to see what you create!

Misty Reflections -- for Ching Chou Kuik

 It's Tuesday, and I'm posting today for the Ching Chou Kuik Inspiration & Challenge Blog. I love my Tuesdays!  These images are so much fun!  Our October challenge still has lots of time for you to link up, with the theme of Boo-tiful Halloween (or pumpkins or Halloween colors).

For my inspiration card today, I used the luscious image, Misty Refections, colored with Copic  markers.  

I used various circle dies,  and papers from AMB Illustrations.  The sentiment is from a stamp company no longer in business, and cut out with a die from Tonic Studios. 

I hope you check the CCK blog frequently for great inspiration!

A Place to Remember -- for Dies R Us Challenges

 It's October 15th, and it's time for a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenges. The challenges are Anything Goes, as long as you use a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store.  The challenge will run for 2 weeks.

A couple from my church recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.  They met at a Bible camp, that is very wooded.  I thought this die was perfect to make a die for their special day...

I created this card using a Crafter's Companion A Place To Remember Create-a-Card die. The sentiment is computer generated unto a stitched tag by Tonic Studios. The red stitched heart die is one of the Just Stitching Hearts die by Lawn Fawn

The background paper of the card is by We Are 3 Digital Shop. It is one of the Fairy Land papers

I hope you can join us this next 2 weeks for our Anything Goes challenge at Dies R Us Challenges.  We give away a gift certificate and 3 designer choice awards every challenge.

Halloween Treat Box -- for Paper ala Mode Challenges

 It's Saturday, so there's a new challenge starting today at the Outlawz.  That's the Paper ala Mode Challenge.  For the next 2 weeks, we want to see your Halloween projects.  Cards, layouts, boxes, or bags.  Add them to our challenge!

As per this whole year, we are sponsored this challenge by We Are 3 Digital Shop. Bonnie will award a gift certificate to her shop at the end of the challenge. 

I thought it would be fun to create something other than a card for today's challenge, so I made  a Halloween Treat Box, using papers, a "spooky" printable and a sentiment from We Are 3 Digital Shop.


The papers on this treat box & tag are from the Cute Halloween papers.  The spider on the tag is part of the Itsy Bitsy Spider & Balloon Printable set.  The sentiment is part of the Halloween  Sentiment Set. 

The gift bag and tag were created with a die set from Diamond Press. I used a bit of twine from Timeless Twine to finish the box. 

I hope you can join us these next 2 weeks for our Halloween Challenge. I'd love to see your Halloween creations!
