Exploring Cricut ~ Autumn

Could it really be that time again? Well, I have witnessed some fog in the morning with a bit of briskness in the air... So that means Autumn will be sure to arrive with it's kaleidoscope of colors and aromas.

So today for my Exploring Cricut
challenge, I embraced the season to come and pulled out two themed carts, Simply Scarecrow and Autumn Celebrations...

The designer paper is by Bo Bunny but I added a little more... I pulled out a new Stampendous stamp I picked up at Michaels and added some Autumn Words to the mix. I then used a Cuttlebug folder (Wicker Weave) to emboss and distressed the edges. And the cuts are as follows...


Autumn Celebrations - Acorn - 3 inches - Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Beige, Rust, Orange, Kraft
Simply Scarecrow - Crow - 6.75 inches - black

I hand cut the banner but masked off the words I did not wish to stamp on the banner and then inked up the word Autumn before removing the tape. Place the stamp where desired and voila!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I have a few more items coming up this week including some new releases from Our Daily Bread Designs so stay tuned! Blessings...
