October Bids Farewell

What a wonderful month October was.  The team has some special cards to share for this last day of the month to celebrate our fabulous sponsors, One Happy Cut  and Morgan's Art World 

Monica is up first with this delightful jar of "pumpkins", yes, pumpkins in a jar.  I didn't think I'd live long enough to see pumpkins in a jar, but, now I can't ever say that again... sorry pumpkins in a jar on aisle 9.  
Featuring One Happy Cut

Be sure to visit Monica at Monica's Craft Corner to learn more about this card.

Arlene figured that any image that sports the name green in the name should at least have some green.  Ivy is one hot mama.  Arlene presents Ivy Greenleaf.


Morgans Art World Ivy Greenleaf.
One Happy Cut Spellbinders Labels 8 and Labels 18
Copics markers and my Cuttlebug
I don't remember what stamp brand "surprise" is.
Blue Pearls

Marsha's last card for the month is featuring the beautiful Ballerina image by Morgans Art world.

Images to Let the Imagination Wonder

Our sponsors for this month are 
One Happy Cut  and Morgan's Art World 

What a beautiful image and she was a dream to color for my first card.  Such a pensive look, the hands close up to the face, it all seems to draw you in to the image.  I so enjoyed coloring her.  Using white for the coat means the coloring seems to fly by, not that you don't have to use color on a white coat.  I wanted to intensify the cold, so I used some BG0000 to give it a fresh chill factor.  The gray colors in the hair also heighten the effect of cold weather.

Morgan's Art World Winter Fae

Another image that captivated my imagination was this ballerina.  She is beautiful and one always strives to do justice to art.  I don't often use this color, but couldn't help bug grab my Copic marker and begin.  I hope you like her too.

Monica again with a card today for the shaped challenge. This month our sponsors are...

and

Don't forget to play along for a chance to win a prize from one of our wonderful sponsors!

Today's card...

I started by printing off the image and then cut it using a die. I then colored it with copics. I die cut another oval  for the back of the card and scored it about quarter of an inch from the top. Adhered the ovals together and add just a tad of stickles to the center of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

In the Spotlight


Hey Everyone! Hannah here.


Shaped cards are a lot harder to do than they look! every thing has to be just right, I finally decided on going as simple as possible, I love coloring in images and then cutting them out as the focal point, and this Ballerina needed the Spotlight.

Oh and Guess what! I finally got my personal blog going again, Yippee! so check it out Here for more details.
The Ballerina is from our Sponsor Morgans Art World and can be purchased Here

Rowan, Last Enchanter

I loved the images from Morgan's Art World.  I had to (HAD TO) have more than my fair share and also print them out in different sizes and color them in different ways.

My first image is smaller and offers less detail than the second.  I'm happy with both.  I had fun making shaped cards, which I haven't done in quite some time.

These are examples for the Die Cut Divas' challenge of  shaped cards for October.  Morgan's Art World is the sponsor for October and I love the images. Be sure to look for Morgan's Art Stamps on her website.or this should get you to the right space to look for her fabulous images.


My second card using the same image, but different Spellbinder's die set.

I hope you're in shape for our challenge, that is, CARD SHAPE. 
 Ok, a bit hokey, but I'm ok with that.

Enchanting Orchis

Monica here today with a card for the Die Cut Diva's blog challenge. This month the challenge is shaped cards our sponsors are...
and

Hope you join us this month for a chance to win!

My first card for this month...

I started off printing off the image and coloring it in with my copics. I went with purples and teals since her dress reminded me of a peacock. I die cut the panel and card base, then ran the top card base through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder. Before adhering the panel to the card I ran a white ink over the embossing.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Orchis, the Enchanter


Isn't this a beautiful image? This is Orchis Last Enchanter from Morgan's Art World. The card was cut with my Cricut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge, and the image was die cut with Spellbinders Scalloped Circles.


I always like to have my card base finished so I can choose the colors for my images, and the light violet of the dress just seemed to go with the shimmer paper. If you would like more information on this card, please join my at Just A Nutter Paper Crafter!

A Girl with a Feather

Hi everyone, Cathie here with another shaped card inspiration using Morgans ArtWorld images.
 I will admit I am a huge fan of Morgan's work, so much so that I am on her creative team. 
The shaped card aspect was made very easy for me by using my Brother Scan and Cut. This is an electronic cutter, which means using a SVG file, I was able to cut out my shaped card, and my image and my mat all in one go without making a mistake; I love that kind of crafting. Well without further ado, here is my project.
