My First DT Card – Autumn

My very first card as part of the Love to Create Challenge DT. You can check out the challenge blog here:

This is the very first time I have been part of a Design Team altogether!! I’ve gotten to know the ladies for the past month and man, they have been the coolest! They were all friendly and I’ve learned so much from them! Product suggestions, YouTube tutorials and and answering all my silly questions! I feel like a little girl in a candy shop and needing people to guide me through it!

This week’s challenge is generously sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps!

Here is my inspiration for this weeks theme “Autumn”:

I used Stella Calendar Months – Thanksgiving. She is the cutest little lady ever! Maybe about month ago I saw her on someone else’s wonderful project and I knew I had to use her one of these days, and here she is today!

Products used:
The Greeting Farm – Anya Scarves

Anya Easel Card

This is my first easel card ever!

A friend at work had asked me to make a card for his wife’s 37th birthday. I told him to tell me some things about her:

Shaheen
Turning 37
Loves to shop
Loves purses
Loves shoes
Loves bling
Bright colors

With a twist with my creativity, I give you….

I was entering my cards into challenges so I tried to make sure I use certain elements into the card, ie. Bow, colors, die cuts etc.

For this project I used:
The Greeting Farm – Miss Anya Collection
Spellbinders – Label Eighteen, Floral Ovals, Classic Ovals

Challenges:
Totally Stampalicious – Ribbon Challenge
House of Gilli – More than One Fold
Papertake Weekly – Things that make you go Awww
Color Throwdown – Fall Colors (The green I used on the oval didn’t turn up as well in the photo, hope that counts..)

Coral: Time to Party!

I have to say all this card making is preventing me from going out to shop. Which is a good thing 😉

Today’s card is created using The Greeting Farm Jessica digi. I’ve always liked circular cards but they’re always a pain to find an envelope for. The circular frame is made from Provocraft Elegant Edges cartridge. After embossing the paper i decided to add some stickles Cotton Candy. Coral paper is Co’redinations Adirondack collection. Unfortunately it doesn’t have the color name on the sheet of paper. It’s a beautiful color though!
