I created a card with three stamped daisies. The background piece is a large paint chip, embossed with the Cuttlebug. I love the fall/autumn colors of the end result.

I made this card for my boyfriend for Sweetest Day..
I used 3 step stamping Autumn Squirrel set. (LOVE THIS SET)
I stamped 3 step squirrel and mounted on nestabilities circles. Mounted that on cardstock that was stamped with 3 step leaves. Used swiss dots Emb. folder, paper piecing, ribbon, inked the edges and used alot of foam dots to pop up everything...

Hi Maria,
I made this card for the category, best use of color. Thanks for letting me play!
Love your stamps!

I made this card on WCMD. I used the leaves stamps from the daisy set. The sentiment was cut from the background designer paper. The single leaf stamp was stamped many times, cut out and layered to make the pointsettia. I used the double leaf stamps to make the leaves of the pointsettia. Thanks, Janice

Oh what a fun theme this month! I can not wait for the holidays to begin!!

I made this card for the category of "best use of sentiment".

Connie (cmc2stamp) said...

This one is for "thinking outside the box". I had bunches of fun with this one! :)

This one is for the "anything but a card" category. What better way to get ready for the holidays then to have a countdown 'til Christmas.

Getting together for the holidays means hanging up all the stockings at our house. One year we even had everyone decorate their own stockings at Thanksgiving to hang up for Christmas. It was such fun. Here's my out of the box card for this month's contests:

Well, duh!! I guess I didn't read the instructions very well! Looks like "Fresh & Fun" doesn't exist any more!! So I am revising my entries . . . the "Pansy Wreath" is now going to be entered into the "Best Use of Color" category, and the "Christmas Rose" fits in "Outside the Box" 'cause roses aren't usually Christmas ornaments. So there!! Here is the link again . . .

My daughter decided at the last minute she wanted to play along, so I am a few minutes late posting this. (She doesn't have a google or blogger account, so I am posting it with my identity.)

She DOES have her own gallery on SCS, so here is a link to the card. She is entering it in the "Outside the Box" category:
