Inspired By... Gather

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired by the colors, leaves, text... pretty much all

Once again, I have used some new CTMH goodies.  And still working my way through my stash of buttons... how many buttons do you still own? How many do you use? LOL

I pulled out the banner feel though I made mine cascading vertically rather than go horizontally.

I even managed to sneak in some scraps of my plaid paper :) 

Now here is the inspiration, we would love to see what you create.

Inspired By... truckload of fall

The new Inspired By challenge is up and I love it!

I was pretty literal with the inspiration as it gave me a good excuse to ink up some more new CTMH goodies. I love a good vintage truck and I love pumpkins so this is the perfect blend :)

Pretty simple card. I popped the truck up on foam circles for some dimension.

Inspired By.... L is For

The new Inspired By challenge is up and I was inspired by the subtle colors, the 'stripes' and the black focal point.

All supplies (except sequins - Neat and Tangles) are from CTMH. Can you tell that I love the dies and that October SOTM? To get the sentiment I used the 'fall' from the October SOTM, I then stamped 'leaves me' using the small typewriter letter stamps and finally I masked off the 'happy' from an older stamp set.

I pulled out the subtle stripes of the shiplap in the photo by using some of the new Mix In Paper.

Now we would love to see how you are inspired:

Fall most of all

Fall hasn't officially started yet, but the cooler weather sure has me in fall mode. I have another fall card to share today using all new CTMH goodies

In this case I used the layered leaf dies but this time only the skeleton leaf not the background part. 

I always love a good notebook edge so I have been making good use of that die too :)

Inspired By.. fall is near

The new Inspired By challenge is up and well... acorns. I love acorns.

All supplies (except acorn die which is Reverse Confetti) are from CTMH. Once again putting the Mix In paper pack to work and using that plaid paper.  the stamped sentiment is from the October SOTM which will be available next month.

I used the Hawthorn paper pack to stamp the leaves on, I love the cardboard look to them. 

See the inspiration. Come on over and play along!

Inspired By Fall is Near

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and it has me thinking of fall, and one thing I love about fall... pumpkin spice

I used my new CTMH goodies (yep they are available now!) to create a Coffee (pumpkin spice) shaker card.

The filler in the shaker is from Pretty Pink Posh but I stamped the little pumpkins and cut them out. 

Now we would love to see what you do:

Fall is in the Air

Look at this, 2 posts in a row. Hard to imagine that a few years ago I posted daily and now I'm lucky if I do more than once a week! LOL. Perhaps you will be seeing more around here as I absolutely love making fall, winter and Christmas cards best.

Today I am using all new CTMH goodies which will be available in just a few short days. Lots of fun stuff will be available.

I love the new layered leaf dies.

The plaid paper from the new Mix In paper pack had me.

Inspired By.... a note to you

The new Inspired By challenge is up and not only do I love the theme (I'm all about stationary supplies) but the colors are pretty too.

I pulled out the colors and sort of the theme... gave me an excuse to combine some older (like the notebook die and star stamp) and new (available in September) CTMH goodies (paper and sentiment stamps)

Now come on over and play along:

Gearing up for fall....

Some new goodies arrived in the mail the other day and I had to play with them. All of these things (stamps and dies)here will be available in the new CTMH catalogue.

I decided to get a start on fall, I love fall. What about you?

I really love the background die it will be fun to fill it with little stamps and such. Today I am using it just to add texture to my cards.

The new Layered Leaf die is a must if you like creating things with leaves. It is perfect! I paired it up with a SOTM and another new stamp. Stay tuned. 

What is fall without pumpkin spice? I love the new stamp and die set and that plaid paper. I'm always  a sucker for plaid. The pumpkin stamp had to come home to me too, because leaves, pumpkins and acorns.... love them all!
