Falling Leaves


Click HERE for this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog post.

This week's challenge at My Craft Spot is Falling Leaves.  We are challenging you to create a project with at least one fall leaf on it.  


I used the new My Craft Spot Stampin' Around Fall stamp set to create the circular leaf border around my window frame.  I first cut paper to size and then used the Creative Memories cutting system to cut the circle out of the middle.  I used the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear set to line up the little orange leaves as I stamped my way around.  (Do the varied thickness of stamps, be sure to keep the cover of the stamping gear set in order to create a tool that can adjust for all your stamping needs.  I felt a bit like MacGyver as I had to get creative with plastic, pop dots and cellotape - but I did it!!)

The little squirrel is from Create a Critter.  The face is stamped with a Peachy Keen stamp.  I also added some orange faux stitching around the card frame. 


The sentiment is also stamped with the new My Craft Spot Stampin' Around Fall stamp set and I used the new My Craft Spot Tiny Doilies metal dies for the scalloped circle and sentiment ring.  These doilies are so easy to work with - and so pretty too!  Mine is popped on my card.  I finished things off with a few more leaves from a Martha Stewart punch.  

Please head over to My Craft Spot to see what the rest of the design team members have made for this week's challenge... and then link up your own Falling Leaves project for your chance to win this week's fabulous prize!

Could this be any more adorable?! (The answer is no!) Your cards always make my heart smile. I love the sweet critter and the gorgeous leafy designs and accents throughout. Those new sentiments are so beautiful. My dear friend, I am so happy to hear your kiddo is progressing so well. I think of you both so often! Sending you both all of my sparkly love!

Hugs and blessings!
