Happy Halloween, Happy Autumn!!

Happy Halloween or Happy Autumn, whichever you're celebrating today!! Remember, it's the final day to add your Halloween or Autumn card to the current Die Cut Diva Challenge. You have until 9pm Pacific time to link up to our gallery. Bugaboo, our fabulous sponsor this month, has donated a $12 prize; the winner will be randomly selected and announced at DCD on October 3rd. 

Here's my last-of-the-month Die Cut Diva inspiration card using the darling Bugaboo Fall Fence Element. I absolutely love this sweet owl atop the fence! You can see more team inspiration HERE.

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio brown & ivory;
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110 lb
Digi image - Bugaboo Fall Fence Element
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints (retired)
Stamps - Hero Arts Color Layering Fall Trees (retired)
Other - Copic Markers; white gel pen; black pencil;
Memento Rich Cocoa ink

I resized the fence image to fit an A2 card and printed it on Neenah. Colored with Copics and die cut with a stitched rectangle. The ivory layer was die cut with a plain rectangle. Layered it up, stamped a sentiment and done; fairly quick and easy. Thanks to Bugaboo for this wonderful image!

I had printed out the Fall Fence in a bigger size too, not knowing which I'd use for my Diva card. I had some extra time so decided to made something with the bigger print. Here's that card:

Similar supplies except my sentiment is from the September 2020 My Monthly Hero kit. When I cut the image in portrait, I had a few leaves and some fence left over. I used the leaves on a third card, this one for an autumn birthday.

Supplies: Paper - Ms Sparkle A2 card; Paper Studio ivory;
American Crafts patterned
Digi - leaves from Bugaboo's Fall Fence Element
Dies - Spellbinders Renaissance Jubilee (retired);
Simon Says Stamp Detail Ringlet Plate
Stamp - Divinity Designs Mini Tag Sentiments

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check back at Die Cut Divas tomorrow for a new challenge & on the 3rd for the October winner and Design Team faves!

PS - don't eat too much Halloween candy!!

totally awesome Linda. I used the same image and it's always fun to see how we all do things something different. Love how you used only part of the image in your second card.

Such fun scenes, Linda. Love swapping out the portrait for the landscape.

Betty said...

cute cards, Linda - hope your Halloween is Boo-tiful!

Hi Linda

Lovely makes .. .. you definitely had a productive craft session.

Love the middle card very much.

Enjoy your Halloween. We don't make much of it here although the house over the road from us has just as many decorations adorning their trees and house as they will at Christmas!

Hope all is well with you.

Love Jules xx
