Dueling Darlings – September

Hello, welcome to another Dueling Darlings post. This month’s kit was sent by Terry S. and the theme she and Terry A. selected was in honour of Milton Hershey’s birthday on September 13th. Chocolate!!

I had two images to work with and chose Stampabilities “Mouseful of Fudge”. I loved the purple papers in this kit and tried to get as many as I could into this card!

I can’t wait to see what October brings! See you a month from now.

Prickley Pear Fall Card

I hope you enjoyed the projects on the Prickley Pear blog last week for the New Release. My fellow Design Team members really outdid themselves!

It has been a busy week with back to school and I wasn’t able to get to my usual blog posts! But, I did want to share this card with you, since it was one of my favorites of the New Release.

This stamp is Wheelbarrow Full of Pumpkin and it’s one of my new favorites from this Release. I’ve paired it with the Oak and Maple Leaf set. These leaves are the perfect size for card fronts.

I also love the variety in the stamp set. I can use a more decorated leave, or just the plain leaf veins.

Isn’t the shaker neat? Instead of using acetate for my window, I used a piece of tulle to hold the sequins in. It makes for a slightly different, textured look!

Thanks for stopping by!

Prickley Pear New Release!

Here we go with another New Release with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.

The Fall release always includes great options for Hallowee, Christmas and Autumn and this release is no exception! The Design Team has been excited to work with these great new stamps and we hope you’ll find them inspiring too.

My first card this week is this Pumpkin Scarecrow. This image was a bit intimidating at first, but I found it quick and easy to color up. I also liked the size of this image, as my preference for scenes like this is to still have a bit of room for design elements.

The sentiment comes from the new Halloween Banners set. This is a great set if you want a few Halloween sentiments and options. They’re versatile, cute and adorable!

Thanks for checking out my post today. There will be inspiration with the Design Team all week on the Prickley Pear blog.

Mystery Image & Craft Your Stash

Hey! I was hoping to make my Mystery Image post before the end of the month, but it did not happen. Therefore, I decided to post by my Mystery Image and my Craft Your Stash post at the same time, since my blog is going to be busy for the next week or so.

Mystery Image first…this month’ image came from the lovely lady Joanna. Joanna’s got great taste…a coffee themed image!! If I didn’t collect umbrella stamps, this would probably be my next choice. Perhaps one day, Joanna and I can stamp in the same room and happily combine coffee with umbrellas all day.

This image is from Art Impressions and it’s called “Hot Java Mama”. It was fun to color up, but took me awhile to find JUST the right layout. I finally used the MFT Card Sketch #348 for this post (though I’m not posting it, since it’s an Art Impressions image).

And, Craft Your Stash this month was chosen by Darlene. She challenged us not to use patterned paper and create our own. In the recent Dare to Get Dirty challenges, I kinda fell in love with the cling wrap technique, so I decided to use it for my card this month. Here is my background, paired with a Stampin’ Up set that I had yet to ink! Way to use your stash, Heather.

Well, here some September and some new challenge! I’ll see you towards the end of the month with the September image from Sonja and September challenge from Terry.

Later, gators.
