It's coming up on that most wonderful time of the year - FALL - and the Control Freaks are celebrating this month with Autumn-y goodness! Sweater weather, pumpkins, colorful leaves, hearty soups; you name it, I'm ready for it! This month's tour has twelve stops, so you may have just landed here from Connie Babbert's blog, Inkspired Treasures (LOVE her style!), or you might be starting here. To make the entire round, just click the link at the bottom of each post and you will end up back here!
I have a couple of cards and a 3D project this time. (Okay, don't FALL off your chair. I do occasionally make something besides cards, lol!) Up first is a sweet card that combines the cozy texture of a sweater, the beautiful colors of Autumn, and a wonderful woodsy background. This one is going to my BFF, who loves this time of year even more than I do! And I do miss her sooo much. Whatever happened to our plans to retire next door to each other?
You can't really see the copper embossing and copper foil strip on this, so I took an angled shot so it would show better.
For the next card, I combined the pumpkin and greeting from Jar of Haunts with the Spooky Fun bundle and built a cute little Halloween scene. Love the spooky script on the greeting!
And last up is this elegant gift box. The colors in the Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP are so warm and cozy, and paired with gold make a striking little box. They say presentation is everything, right? BTW, I'm having a blast making little tassels! Those heat embossed and die-cut leaves are from the (still available!) Thoughtful Branches bundle.
That's a wrap on another tour for me! Now hop on over to see what Debbie Henderson at Debbie's Designs has in store for you; she's sure to have something special!
Your projects are fabulous! So much texture and glimmer - beautiful!ReplyDelete
All three are beautifully created projects! Love the sponging on your leaf and halloween card and your embossed leaves on the treat box are stunning!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Amy! (Actually that leaf was water colored, but sponging would have worked too, and been faster - no drying time!)Delete
All of your projects are fabulous Cindy. Love how you used just a little bit of the embossing on your first card!ReplyDelete
Love your cards, especially the sheltering tree. Thanks for sharingReplyDelete
Thank you, Holly!Delete
Love love love what you did with the tree in the leaf - so very clever. The Halloween card and box are both very striking as well.ReplyDelete
Thnaks, Kelly! Wish I could take credit for thinking of using the tree in the leaf, but no - I saw it in several places on Pinterest. :)Delete
Cindy, your projects are just lovely! So many pretty touches of elegance.ReplyDelete
Aw, thanks, Mickey!Delete
Gorgeous, Cindy! I really love the use of the tree image on the leaf!!ReplyDelete
All great projects, but I LOVE the sheltering tree embossed on the Leaflet! I'm a lazy stamper and hate to pull out my heat gun and powders, but they do get such a beautiful presentation on a project!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Connie! I keep all that stuff right out where I can easily reach it, otherwise it wouldn't get used here, either. (I'm also a lazy stamper, LOL!)Delete
Where to begin? I love the first card, the fall one. Love how you did the leaf with the tree. The 2 different embossing folders together - great idea. Thanks for the fall inspirations!ReplyDelete
Awww, thank you!!! I love the different textures, too. :)Delete
Love your projects! BeautifulReplyDelete
