Addicted to mini cards!


I'm back today with two mini cards to share with you, these mini cards are a cute 11 x 11 cm square. They might be mini cards but this is a not so mini blog post! 

With the foggy cold mornings starting to appear Autumn is really upon us and as I gaze out of the Studio window as the Autumn sunlight breaks through the clouds it really shows up the warm colours of the leaves on the trees. 

Such a beautiful sight, so, when I saw the current DYSU challenge seen HERE and below my card I knew I wanted to make a card & this is what I came up with...

I started out by choosing 3 SU! colours, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red & Summer Sun. I then used the smaller outline leaf from Pure Florals: Gerbera & stamped it in each of the 3 colours. After fussy cutting them out I adhered them to the lower right corner of a piece of Kraft CS and secure with a twine tied button. The 'Thanks' sentiment is from Label Love: Thank you.

Here is a close up of the detail...

I am also entering this card into the Moxie FAB World WCMD Thank you Challenge HERE

I've got a second card to share with you today...

Whilst sorting my desk out I came across this BOO! label I had printed but not used from the Super FREE Saturday BOO! collection available for download HERE. I decided to use the current Play Date Cafe Challenge colours seen HERE and below which are just perfect for a Halloween card! 

I paired the label with some die cut banners which I stamped with 2 designs from Wonderful Washi. This shows how even more versatile the stamps from Wonderful Washi are! Below is a close up of the detail...

You can just about see in the photo above the Silver Stickles glitter glue that I added to the arch of stars. This card also fits perfectly into the current Addicted to Stamps Challenge HERE which is Addicted to Halloween. I'm more addicted to Halloween this year than ever before & I'm looking forward to the night itself to all the cute lil kids dressed up Trick or Treating! 

Well, it's been a treat for you today as I've had two cards to share and it's been a while since I've been this creative in one day!! Lets hope the trend continues. 

Thank you for stopping by & as always your comments are truly appreciated.
