Leaves Are Falling

Hi there! Welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner and another Challenge Me Monday!
Yep, it's Monday...again! But that's not all bad because with Monday comes another exciting Challenge Me Monday over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.

This week's challenge is called Leaves Are Falling and this challenge is just what it sounds like:  make a project with leaves on it!  Remember that your project must have at least one Cricut cut on it!

I am so excited about the arrival of fall, even if it hasn't made it's way to my little corner of Alabama just yet.  It was fun to work on a fallish card and think that it will soon be here....


* Papers - DCWV Autumn Splendor paper stack (patterned paper) - solids were scraps from my paper stash.  All edges are distressed and inked with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.
* Leaves - these were created using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and the CTMH Harvest Happiness stamp set.
* Twine and button are from my stash of crafting goodies.
* Sentiment - Bountiful Blessings stamp set from Pink By Design.

To create the leaves, I cut out the leaf image on page 34 of the AP handbook.  These were cut at 2 inches each.  The bottom layer is cut from off-white cardstock and the top layer is cut from the brown I used on my card.  Using my stamp from CTMH, I dabbed on ink from Ranger in the following colors, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed and Rusty Hinge.  I stamped the image onto the cut out leaves then adhered the brown layer.  I really like the effect I achieved by mixing up my inks!'s your turn to get crafty!  Head over to FCCB and see what our fantabulously talented designers have to share with you today.  Then...go get creative....and post your creation over at FCCB.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Until next time,
