Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge: Autumn Flowers

The Cuttin' and Stampin' Design Team is back from our hiatus and ready to roll!   We have some great projects and some drool-worthy products to share with you, so I hope you'll check them all out and keep checking with us regularly.
   
Our challenges are now bi-weekly, so we'll have a new challenge every other week.  You'll have two full weeks to get your projects created and posted for the challenge.
  
Today's project I'm sharing with you is for the Autumn Flowers challenge, and we're featuring the Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquets collection.
   
 
  
As you can see, the flowers on my card are pretty small.   They appear on both of the patterned papers I chose.  The large burlap bow is part of the collection, and I trimmed off quite a bit of excess fiber from it.
  
Now it's time to head to Cuttin' and Stampin' to see what the other designers have created and get your project linked up!
  
Happy Stamping and Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

Hero Arts Christmas Cards @ Craft Warehouse

Today's the day!   Three of my cards are being featured on the Craft Warehouse Blog, along with several time-saving tips for crafters.

One of the tips I share there has to do with those long strips of bling...


Many of the bling gems come packaged in strips that stick together.   This is very convenient when you want a row of gems (like on card #1 on the blog post), but what do you do when you only want them one at a time?

Check it out at http://shopcraftwarehouse.blogspot.com/2014/11/hero-arts-christmas-cards-by-design.html.

Happy Stamping!
