Fall Inspiration

If you struggle for inspiration you can always use the CTMH idea book and look at all the inspiring artwork on each page!
This first card is on page 140 in the back of the CTMH idea book. It's an example using the September Stamp of the Month "Fall Favorites." I used a blending pen and different ink pads to color the scarecrow image which worked easily.
This card uses the Artiste cartridge and some of the images using the "F" key
I love the notebook page image that can be cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I cut mine using CTMH Cocoa cardstock and it was cut at 5 1/4" (perfect for an A2-size card). The new flowers (cut at 2 1/2") are so easy to make with a quilling tool and some CTMH Liquid Glass adhesive. I also added a small bow using the CTMH Burlap Ribbon. The leaves were cut by the Cricut Artiste cartridge as well at 3/4" and 1" out of olive cardstock. I scored them slightly and sanded the edges for a more textured look.
Thanks for stopping by!
