First Pumpkin Attempt

I have come across this 3D pumpkin technique on the cricut forum and I thought it was sooooo cute so I decided i would try it for myself.

I have simply cut 10 scallop circles using my big shot, I have aged the edges then scored down the centre, I then folded them and glued them together.

For the stalk I have used some groisgrain spotty brown ribbon and for the vines I have cut some thin srtips of green card split them in half so they are thin then I have curled them with a quilling tool. The background paper is Bo Bunny and it is just stunning!!!

The example I saw was for ornaments but I thought it would look super cute on a card!!

Now I will say that the pumpkin is too heavy for the card size that I have choosen so it keeps falling down, so I will need to play around with different weight and size card blanks but for now I am happy with the result!!!

A big thanks to Big Beras Wife on the cricut forum for the inspiration!!!

Something a bit Different!!!

I have been slightly stuck in my ways of late, so I have decided to be brave and leave my stamps and skulls alone ( only for a bit )

I thought I would get a birthday card sorted for Konrad's Mum. I decided that she would not appreciate skulls in any way shape or form so I had to stop and think and this is what I have come up with.

I have used the New Arrival cart and cut card 3 on fit to page ( which actually cut at 11.5" ) I did this firstly with K & Co pattern paper, then with DCWV texture card stock. I cut the blue card down so I could just layer the scallop over my pattern paper, I have then added a simple blue insert for strength!!! I have added some american crafts ribbon to hide the join running across the card where the blue meets the pattern paper. I had a bit of the pattern paper left so i cut out some flowers and embellished them with DCWV brads and I have layered them onto my card with some 3D foam. I have finished the whole thing off with some more ribbon and a few simple bows!!!
I am pleased with the result as it is not my usual style, my hubby thinks his mum will love it x x x
