Two Fall Cards!

Hi Friends! Karla here today with some Fall cards I made a couple weeks ago for World Cardmaking Day.  I thought I should share them here while Fall is still in the air!

For first card I layered a handcut vellum banner over a woodgrain paper background and tucked some diecut leaves behind it.

 Then, I used the 'thankful' and pumpkin cut files from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine - it's free and  you can download it here along with other free files!

I used some Fancy Free patterned paper behind my pumpkin and added some sequins and a couple drops of yellow Izink. Some faux stitching using a red pen on the vellum finished it off.

For my second card I watercoloured a cute little pumpkin girl stamp sitting on a tree stump, both older stamps from C.C. Designs. I masked off the girl to make her look like she was sitting directly on top of the stump and then used Distress and Tombow markers to watercolour the image before fussy cutting her out.

I layered her over a diecut background and backed the cut with BoBunny papers from the Believe collection. I love the look of different papers behind a diecut!!

Inside, I added a sentiment and pumpkin image that I coloured in with coloured pencils.

I added some pretty sequins and a button from the 28 Lilac Lane collection, and used a cute little ribbon across the top of my card. I gave this to my niece at Thanksgiving, which in Canada was a couple weeks ago, and she loved it!

This is my last post here on the Design Team at the Scrapendipity Blog. I will miss you all and thank Selena so much for having me! You can always find me on my blog Creative Love Affair - and of course at the Scrapendipity store! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you have a wonderful, crafty week!
