Tuesday Morning Sketches #423

Good Morning!  Thank you for visiting me.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I think you're going to really like this sketch.  Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps.  My card features Happy Fall Trio.

I love how my card turned out.  I wanted to try something new for me - I see Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner do partial cuts with their dies, so I thought it would look cool with this particular sketch.  My card also features stamps from Hero Arts Sept 2016 kit, paper from Colorbok and I did simple coloring with Copics.

Doesn't this scream Fall?  I love it!  And just look at the silly grin on that scarecrow.  I printed it on Neenah Natural card stock and as I said, simple Copic coloring.  Not too much blending going on. 

I lined up the circle die about half way up and put it through my Cuttlebug ensuring that the pressure was only on the part I wanted cut.  Then cut the straight edge with paper trimmer.  I finished the inside with cream colored card stock that I added a strip of the decorative paper.  Then from the same Hero Arts kit, I stamped out the pumpkins and used the coordinating die to cut it out.

Thank you for stopping again.  Please be sure to visit the design team's blogs, too.  They'll appreciate your visit.

Have a great day!

Oh, SUPER CARD! Your attention to details is obvious in how the plaid matches up exactly between the top part of the card and the bottom. The little pumpkins are darling. You hit this one out of the park, gf!

This is so cute Melissa, good for you for putting the new technique to use. I especially love the plaid and how you colored your scarecrow :) only he's too cute to even scare a crow!

I like that unique fold technique you used and it made for a great autumn card with the plaid, pumpkins and fun scarecrow! Cute!

This is adorable!! I just picked it up as the Friday Freebie and can't wait to use it. I like the fold you did on this card a lot. I need to do more than the standard A2 that I always seem to do.
