Celebrate Fall!

I'm all about dimension on my cards lately I love to use 3d dots on everything.  Oh and I am getting tons of use out of my cricut right now.  I just love my new cartridge "Wrap It Up", so many fabulous designs and so little time, LOL!

Anyhow I saw a card for fall with a fence on it and I thought I would like to try that.  Then I thought how cool would it be if it was a whole scene.  My idea was to stamp some trees and grass, sponge in the sky and add a fence (using Tim Holtz on the Fence die) then pop up a pumpkin in front of the fence.  Well the fence was too small for the pumpkin stamp I wanted to use.  So I cut out a fence using my new cartridge "Wrap It Up".  Then of course none of my tree stamps were big enough, so I cut trees out on the cricut as well (Stretch Your Imagination cartridge).  I cut the images out on ivory colored paper and colored them with inks and watercolor pencils.  This is for my celebrate fall class that I am teaching at Scrap Arts in September.  There will be 4 cards total in this class.  I didn't add a greeting because I really didn't think it needed one on the front, but I will have several greeting stamps available if people would like to add one.
The second card for this class is a Halloween card.  I taught this card last year but I've had tons of requests to teach it again this year (lots of people missed it last year).  Again its a card with lots of inking and dimension.  For more information about this card you can check out this post from last year.  I didn't use any patterned paper for this card, it is all done with inks and stamps.

Well I guess I better get back in my craft room and finish up the other 2 cards for this class.  I will post them as soon as I have some pictures.  Also my September class list is up, just click on the class schedule tab at the top of the page.

Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping by.


Sorry I had the wrong name of the one cricut cartridge I used I had written All Wrapped Up but it is actually Wrap It Up.

I saw your Celebrate Fall card on Splitcoaststampers and thought I'd check out your blog. I was happy to discover that you're a fan of, too! I love your fall card with all the popped up images. Great job!
