Happy Fall

Happy Tuesday OCS Followers!
Fall themed cards are happening over on the High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper Blogs for August! I think this rubber stamp from High Hopes has to be one of my favourites! "Country Harvest" just about sums up Fall for me! Pumpkins, hay, picking apples (for pie?) all done in those gorgeous Fall colours! If you choose, you can even stamp something onto the little wooden sign! 
I love the layered look of the cardstock that is cut with a Stitched Scallop die. The cardstock matches perfectly with the paper I used from the Doodle Bug "Happy Harvest" 6x6 collection. All the pumpkins have some glitter pen added to them. A simple designed card today finished off with some ribbon and a leaf gem sticker.
Copics Used:
Apples: R37, R59, R89/ YG03, YG25
Pumpkins: YR0000, YR000/ YR15, YR16, YR18/ YR04, YR07, YR09/ YR23, YR24, YR27
Sign & Wooden base: E43, E44, E47

A rafter of turkeys!

Welcome to todays blog post!
I'm getting started on some Fall cards because I feel it sneaking up & it will be here before I'm ready for it.
I colored up both the Sm. Turkey P101 & the Lg. Turkey S211 from High Hopes.  I decided to color a few of each because I wanted some for my scrapbook pages as well as some Fall cards.  Then I got to thinking of the design for this card and I thought how about a small rafter of turkeys.  Originally I was going to use 5 but my card would have been huge so I paired that down to just 3.  I think it worked out quite well with just the 3.  I used the Happy Thanksgiving F203 sentiment, some ribbon & a few self adhesive enamel dots to finish it off.

Browns - E29, E27, E25, E23, E21, E31, E30
Red - R59, R29, R27
Grey - W6, W4, W2
Grey - W9, W7, W5, W3, W2, W1
Beige - E43, E42, E41
Red - R59, R29, R27
Cheeks - R01
I hope todays card inspires you to get crafty!
Have a wonderful day!!

Nuts About You

We have a ton of squirrels that live in my neighbourhood. Each morning there are about 10 - 15 babies that I watch play in my neighbours back yard racing up and around the tree trunks. 
Later in the day I see these babies and the adults busy collecting and packing their food for winter hibernation. 
Little Nutty Buddy reminds me of these squirrels and I wanted to use him on a card that I can put in my stash for just the right moment when I would like to let someone know in a fun way how important they are to me. 

I coloured up this cutie with alcohol markers, added some shading with Prisma pencils and cut him out using a circle die. The tip of his tail had to be cut a little to slide the die in under it to cut it the size I wanted it. 
Next I grabbed some paper from Carta Bella and cut it to fit my design. All of the paper edges including the leaves have a touch of umber ink on them to make them pop a little. 
Twine from my stash, skeleton leaves and enamel dots finish off my card.
