SAS4Kids Challenge #86 is to make Cute Fall/Halloween cards for Kids

Hello there again from SAS4Kids
It is time again for another great challenge
and this time it for Cute/Halloween cards.
My first card is pretty simple using 2 of the lovely images from
I used the sentiment - Autumn Blessing and digi - Pumpkin.

Sizzix leaves & butterfly
Spellbinders Labels 1 & 8
Paper piercing
Memento Inks - pistachio, olive grove and peanut brittle
Tombow and gel pens
Faber-Castell water colour pencils
Own ribbons and black rhinestone.

I am not really into the Halloween thing but
WOW I loved the images I picked from our generous sponsor
The Cutting Cafe' (Halloween Time)
I decided to print the haunted house with orange paper
the ghosts in white and fussy cut them.
The bats were hand cut and
added dimensional magic for shine.
Designer paper is Kaisercraft Blast Off
Framed behind the dp and house with grey paper
MS punch for the fence
Spellbinders Circles Die
JustRite Vintage Labels
Own ribbons and finished with a
black rhinestone for the door knob.

It's Spring Time at The Outlawz

Over at The Outlawz for the month of September we have
the most amazingly generous sponsor
The Design Team for the Colour Challenges
got to pick which digi's they would like to use.
So each week in September I will show you what I made.
This was the perfect month for us in Australia
as it is SPRING and that means FLOWERS.
This is the photo and colour combination chosen by
Each week is different and so too our Twist.
This week it is to add something with Wings.
Here is my first creation for September.
I used 3 different coloured card stock to match my image.
I pierced the pricking pattern around the framed rose which is
a pre coloured one. I just added a little colour to the edges.
The beautiful rose and the pricking pattern
 is from the Diamond Rose Set
and the butterfly from the Marigold & Morpho Set
I was really pleased how this card finished up thanks to
the beautiful images in my favourite colour from Fred She Said.
Hope you liked my card and you will come back
 next week to see the next colour challenge card.

The piano keys are from a die cut and attached
 to the piano shaped black card stock.
Added cut out flowers with a little bling
