This was really hard to photograph cause of its size :)
Its a little witch's broom I created as Halloween Decor for my home :)

It measures at least 20" high and I really enjoyed making this..
I used three brown lunch bags, a twig, wire, twine, hand made flowers and leaves, die cut bats, distress inks, a tag and the Broom Parking stamp from the Wonderfully Wicked stamp set..

how about some close ups and details:

I scrushed up the paper bag strips, inked them and glued them to the twig.
then randomly glued my hand made flowers around the base..

Here you can see the tag I created.. It has an embossed texture to it, so the stamp looks awesome on there..I wanted it to look like a price sticker/tag.. 

Here is the stamp set I used:

Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!!

Celebrate Fall card

Hey ladies..
I'm here today to share a shaped card I created as my design project for Craftin Desert Divas, using one of the Say it Big sentiments to Celebrate Fall :)

This is what I created:
I embossed to the top of the Acorn and then rubbed some Brushed Corduroy distress ink on it..
added the greenery, the word FALL and finally stamping the Celebrate onto a white piece of card stock which I then punched the corners out of, inked the edges and attached it to my card using foam tape.

I added some cheese cloth, twine and crochet lace ribbon.

here is the stamp set I used:

Harvest wooden blocks-die cut reveal-sous

It's once again die cut reveal time for us ladies over at SOUS and for today its a die cut challenge "Anything Autumn!"..
I decided to create some decorated wooden blocks that my hubby had cut for me a long time ago and I finally grabbed them out of storage and got them decorated :)

This is what I created:
These are all print and cut.. I thought to add some 3D elements to them, but then stopped myself at the last minute.. I like the flat look :) 

The colors are a bit off due to the dreary weather we've had the last few weeks and its only going to get worse :(

I have a few close ups:
added some pumpkins to the bottom of the "R" and then
decided to make the "V" an ear of corn :)

I started adding packing yarn to the edges of the blocks, but then didn't like it and decided to leave the rest of them without it :)

I did add some touches of white gel pen here and there.. couldn't resist..LOL

and there ya have it.. my Harvest blocks..I've been having fun making some Autumn decor for my home..
so, do stop by SOUS and check out what fun projects the rest of our design team has created for todays challenge..
Till Next time..
