September Cards

It's that time again, a preview of the cards for the September Cricut classes at Craft Fancy.

We will begin with Thanksgiving/Fall cards. This cute turkey is from the Create a Critter Cartridge. I like the burlap background, a nice change from patterned paper.

Next up an acorn and some leaves. This card was inspired by a wall hanging in the latest Scrapbooks, Etc magazine. The acorn is from Create a Critter and the leaves are from DoodleCharms. I love all the different colors of the BoBunny dot paper. I also stamped the card with the Hero Arts Design Block Flourish stamp and a VersaMark watermark stamp pad.

Looks like we are going to be using Create a Critter a lot this month. The pumpkin and leaves on this card are from that cartridge too. More BoBunny dot paper and some pretty silk ribbon 

Next we will move on to Christmas. This pretty ornament is from the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge. More BoBunny dot paper accents this card. You might have noticed that most of the cards have some distress ink on them. I used the Tim Holtz Distress Inks - this card has Vintage Photo Distress ink on it and the acorn card has the Wild Honey Distress Ink on it. I'll show you an easy way to apply the ink to the cards.

The last card is a snowy evergreen tree. You can't tell from the picture, but I brushed on some starburst Stickles (also from Ranger Ink) to give the snow a subtle shimmer. 

Hope to see you in class!
