Grateful Autumn Penguins -- Inspired Thank-you with the UnstampaBelles

Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is: Inspire (who/what was your inspiration into the world of papercraft?) with the optional twist of: Thank You Card using the word Inspire.

You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our prize. And remember, no stamps!

My crafting inspiration, both for this card & for crafting in general, is my Mom. She introduced me to stamps & designer papers, which got me into this great online cardmaking community! She just left from a long visit with us, so I made this notch-wing card featuring a photo of me and my son. The foam penguin was found on the sidewalk by my thoughtful husband!

Challenges:
CHPP October Challenge: AG with Patterned Paper 
Papercraft Business Challenge (M, P1, E3, any papercraft) October - Interactive

Be sure to check out the fabulous projects by my teammates the UnstampaBelles this month!

If the Broom Fits -- Halloween at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our theme is Halloween

I love making Halloween cards, so I couldn't wait to pull out these stamps & papers that I was gifted last year and never got to use. I heat-embossed the Legs with a sparkly white powder; the sentiment (from a different stamp set)was stamped in black, also directly onto a textured orange paper. The hat & broom are stickers; everything is matted with silver foil cardstock.


For the base card, I used a foiled paper from the paper collection as most of the patterned papers on the front. I added a message section and more of those cute Halloween kitties!


Inspiration/Challenges:
Aud Sentiments Challenge #261: (Thurs 2W) Fall/Halloween Sentiment
Show Us Your Pussies Challenge #59: (Monthly Tue) Furrything Goes (mainly cats) 



Thank you for visiting! Hope you'll join us at International Art & Soul,
