Creative Confetti - Take 10

For this week at Creative Confetti, we are to make a card that only takes 10 minutes.  Great as I needed some Sympathy cards for my stash. I had this idea for one with the new Leaf border digi that comes with simple leaves.  I quickly put one leaf and sentiment on my screen and made four cards with it. I ran them through the Minc machine to add the gold and black foil. After coloring the one leaf with Copic markers and I sponged some blue color on the background.  Die cut them with several different frame dies and added them to a base.  I think that it took less than 10 minutes for one card, but I did four in less than 30 minutes.  Good thing, as my neighbor called me this morning with a request for two sympathy cards.  Now I have them.

I will be adding these to the Creative Confetti challenge for this week. 
Thanks for stopping by and I sure appreciate your comments. 


Double D Challenge - Silhouettes

This is the last challenge for October at Double D.  It looks like Darlene wants a Silhouette? 
Well heck, I thought I would have some fun with this one. 
I actually have no silhouette stamps, but I do have a Cameo that works sometimes.  
That is where I went for my card. 

My Card
 This is a silhouette die that I cut with my Cameo.  I used orange paper behind the legs for the stickings. and Dry embossed with Diamonds on Key Lime card stock from Gina K Designs. I used some ribbon from my stash on the right side and also inside the card. The sentiment is computer generated.

The inside sentiment says, "If the hat fits, get the matching shoes and broon.  Happy Halloween!
