The Outlawz Progressive/Freebie Challenge Talk about last minute!!! This is certainly that🥺. We had a gorgeous fall image to work with from Jan’s Digi Stamps (https://www.janmahew.com/) Aptly named “Signs of Autumn”. Fall has arrived at my house! Yesterday it was chilly instead of hot and I am loving it!

I cut some of the strips in half and used like washi tape and cut some photo corners out of some cardstock. I sprayed the background with some Lindy's Stamp Gang Mystic Malachite Vintage Spray before starting. I love the magical color of this!

Time for the midway post at Ike's World Challenges for September and U is for Under the Weather or U can play Anything Goes! 😋 As usual I kinda took the theme and went in my own merry way! But that is the really great thing about playing at Ike's cause you can make whatever your heart fancies! Here is my take on this one!
Is this not the most adorable unicorn in the whole world! This is Cute Unicorn by Ike's Art! He is sorta above the weather I think and it looks like a wonderful place to be! I printed a couple of copies out and one copy larger so I could use the clouds to trace on some watercolor paper. I used watercolors and gelatos on the large clouds and let dry before fussy cutting them out. I stamped some little stars with the same watercolor and the sentiment and stars are stamps from a papercrafting magazine so....freebies! I colored up everything with Spectrum Noir markers and popped the rainbow and first layer of clouds on foam dots. Then came the third? set of clouds on foam dots and finally the star of the show! I used some packaging foam stuff that was thicker to pop him up over his lovely sky! I hope you will come play with us this month! It is always fun at Ike's World Challenges and there is a fab freebie image each month! Hope to see you there!
I totally thought I had linked this to Leigh's Blog Hop but I hadn't so...here we go again!

I have wanted to play at the Outlaws Sunday Songs and Rhymes for ages and finally did it! The poem or song? not sure, for this week is "Cats sleep anywhere" and my kitty has been hopping on top of the dryer when I put the warm clothes on it. So the line "In the cupboard, with your frocks-" was my starting point!

HERE at LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog! The linky party is there, too! 😉 I bought the awesome Creative Stamping magazine a couple of weeks ago and it had tons of freebie stamps plus digital downloads from many, many companies. This little sparkly unicorn (17 free digital images and papers in total!) is from Polkadoodles!

HERE at LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog! The linky party is there, too! 😉 Tonight I want to share with you a triangle fold card with a belly band featuring OddLeigh Snowflake Elf as the star of the show! This is one of Leigh's fab images at LeighSBDesigns!
I was inspired by another video tutorial of Jennifer McGuire's! I had a blast figuring out the details on this one. I colored the image with Prisma colored pencils and used the Nuvo shimmer pen for some sparkle. The sentiment is from Lost Coast Designs. Leigh released the most fabulous, fantastic, awesome new POE GNOME today! You have just gotta go see this one! I have already nabbed him and will be printing him up tomorrow 😍 Check him out and join in the blog hop fun HERE!

I have been watching sooooo much Youtube and found Jennifer McGuire's videos. I am learning so many things that are "new" to me! That doesn't mean they are new at all but such fun for me! This was my first experiment with a tunnel card.
I had a tough time trying to take a pic of the inside! I used some freebie stamps from the Creative Stamping magazine issue 83. The set is Enchanted Woodland. It really is a fabulous stamp set and there is lots of inspiration in the magazine to get me started! But the tunnel card is from one of Jennifer's videos and I don't have everything just right as you can see :) I am happy with how it turned out and can't wait to try more! Hope everyone is having a great weekend at home!

This is Coffee Break by the Paper Shelter. I am sad to say this was my only copy as the original was on one of my crashed computers :( But I was really happy to see this one! I just added it to some patterned papers and stamped the sentiment with freebie stamps from a papercrafting magazine (will give the company name in tomorrow's post). I added some bling on the corner and some Distress Ink on the edges. We are headed into the most wonderful time of the year.....Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! I am giddy with excitement! Let's all stay safe and play at Leigh's!
