Fall is my favorite season but I really don’t have a use to make fall cards personally.  So this stamp set screamed layout to me.  I had a great picture of my son and I in costume from last October in Disney and I generally don’t post pics of my son, but he is incognito as the Mad Hatter so it’s ok here.  I used the smaller stamp on the mat for the pumpkin pictures and the larger scarecrow stamp as an accent.  Watercolor pencils to color it in and a water pen to blend it out to look more muted.  I used the Moonlight paper pack and then cut out the owl from the Cricut Artiste cartridge as an accent.  I didn’t like how the feathers looked so I didn’t use those.

Now “Hop” on over to Angela’s Blog  to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!

There are so many amazing stamps in this set that I had a little trouble deciding where to start.  I do love butterflies, so I went that route.  There are two butterfly stamps – one solid and one striped so I layered them!  On the outside the solid color is Creme Brulee and the overlay stripes are sorbet.  On the inside the solid is sorbet and the overlay is twilight.   I love the double color looks that this set allows.

I can’t help it – I had to try something with the new Artiste Cricut cartridge.  But something different.  We give wine bottles as gifts all the time, and particularly at holidays.  I figured I’d hold off on the Christmas décor for a little while longer, so I chose one of my new favorite paper packs, Flirty, to create this wine bottle ‘topper’.

I chose the cupcake wrapper of the Artiste handbook to create the wrappers I used to create a ‘cone’ to top the bottle.  I cut at 2 ½ inches for the bottom two, 2 inches for the next two and 1 ½ inches for the final two.  I used my tape gun to tighten them at the desired size if the standard notch wasn’t quite right.  I used pop dots to affix them together.   It has a little circus’ey feel to me in this particular pattern.  I’m thinking with Christmas papers it will look more like a tree.

I also used the Artiste cartridge to create the flowers that are adorning the topper cut out of Flirty patterned papers.

I also used the new My creations bracket frame ($8.95, Z1797) to create a unique framed art piece that is also useful.  I was inspired by the new Chalkboard adhesive vinyl ($4.95,Z1789) however it didn’t arrive to me in time so I decided to make the same project a different way. I’ll feature the chalkboard adhesive vinyl as soon as it arrives to me!  To keep the project as I had planned, I used chalkboard spray paint from Lowe’s to spray the entire frame.  I adorned it with Flowers in Flirty!  Now it is a versatile frame that can be decorated for any occasion!  I LOVE chalkboard surfaces and cannot wait to get this new product to use as well.
