It's Fall Y'all! Challenge #336

 Hello Ai fans!

We have a new challenge for you today and it's just perfect for this time of year!

I mean...who can resist this?

It's Fall Y'all!

Fall encompasses so many wonderful things...
even just a beautiful, outdoor scene with some Autumn colored leaves.

Janet is our featured artist this week but before we show you her absolutely adorable card we have this...

Since we're introducing a NEW challenge I think you know what that means.
It's time to announce the winners of our last challenge which was Woodn't it be Nice.
Cards that featured "wood" on them.

She created this AMAZING sliding barn door using multiple Art Impressions stamps on the inside and hand painting her own door.

Hello Ai Fans! I have created a card celebrating friendship and Halloween, adult style! These gals are all dressed up and ready to party. I love the creativity of the pumpkin costume so much! I wish I knew where to get one for me! LOL! This image is from 5038 - Ghoul Friend Set.

One of the great things about stamping is that you can make something in the image meaningful to you or your recipient. I gave the ladies pink and green drinks in honor of Pinkies and Greenies that a bar in Minneapolis, MN is known for. My husband and I had some good times in that watering hole and it just brings back some happy memories!

As I usually do, I sketched the basic design and then went ahead with cutting everything out. I cut the pieces with my trimmer except for the round piece. That was cut with the largest Circle Double Stitched Die. I edged the flag with Black Soot Oxide ink, the green square with Peeled Paint Oxide ink and the round with Wilted Violet Oxide ink. Inking really helps the pieces stand out from each other, especially when using so many different patterns. 

I colored the ladies and fussy cut them out before gluing them to the round piece of cardstock. I also assembled the background by stacking the pieces as shown here. I popped the circle piece up with foam tape and placed it on top of the card base.

I stamped the sentiment using one from the set. I used the small Circle Double Stitched die as a template to trace a circle around it to create a thought bubble. Then I added the tail to the thought bubble. I cut it out following my sketch line and then erased the edges so that they were no longer visible. 

And again here is the completed card. This would be a perfect card to send to a friend or sister for Halloween. I hope you all have this much fun on All Hallows Eve!

Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure you submit your fall card on our challenge page. It's Ghoulishly fun!

Wishing you a very crafty day!
