Tiddly Inks DT Call

Tiddly Inks has posted the DT CAll pics and you can vote here. Unfortunately, I did not resize mine correctly and it looks terrible. You all know what it is supposed to look like so if you would show me some support I would really appreciate it. I tried resizing again and sent her an e-mail asking if she would change the photos... hopefully she will do that for me. Anyway, wish me luck!

Bunny With Chick

I made this card following a sketch at Sew Many Challenges, it is a small A5 sized card. I wanted to make something I could easily make several of and I thought their sketch would be perfect for the job. The card base is one I had from DCWV and the rest of the papers were just scraps. I think this is a nice little card that I won't have to make a trip to the post office for or spend a fortune to send. Thanks for looking, Autumn
Challenges I've Entered:
Copic Creations- Favorite Technique (Caucasian Skin)
Wild Flower Patch- Ribbon and handmade flowers

Anniversary card

Today is mine and my husband's 9th anniversary...boy, where does time go. Anyway, this is the card I made for him. The image is a digi from C.C.Designs. I followed a sketch at The Pink Elephant and I'm really liking this look, it's me, simple and cute. An even better thing about this card... it's made almost entirely out of scraps... the only part I cut new is the base of the card, how cool is that! I paper-pieced the outfits and hair and, can I say, that was very time consuming and my fingers were quite sore when I was done but, I really like how it turned out. Besides The Pink Elephant challenge there's a couple more this qualifies for and you can see them below. Thanks for looking! ~Autumn

Challenges I've entered:
Practical Scrappers: use something old
Daisy Doodles: open + digi
Handfull Of Stamps: Remove the dust
Fab N Funky Challenges: It's All in the Technique

Easter Easel Card

Here is my first easel card. I actually started making this for a challenge at at Karen's Doodles, but I missed the deadline by about 5min...so sucks.... UPDATE!!!....The new challenge was posted at Karen's doodles today so now I'm entered in that and you can find the link at the bottom of this post. I'm so happy that I qualified for the new Karen's Doodles challenge. Anyway, I think it turned out pretty well for my first one and I absolutely love the colors I used...I want keep it for myself, lol.
Here is what it the inside looks like. It's pretty simple, but the white cardstock on the front and the inside bottom are glitter and so is the green so I didn't feel like it needed a whole lot.
Here is a close -up of this adorable little puppy(a freebie BTW) that I colored with my copics. I love this image...Thank You Karen's Doodles! This actually qualifies for many challenges but it will take some time to get them all up and I gotta get started on dinner. Hop you enjoy! Let me know what you think and thanks for looking!
Have a great day! Autumn

Fairy Anya Card

A friend of mines' daughters birthday is coming up and I needed to make a card for her so I thought I'd enter a couple of challenges( The Greeting Farm and Flutter By Wednesday) and try out my new Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm.
It's four in the morning now so I will write what I did tomorrow, or ah' later today I guess, lol
...It's six pm now and since I've been having trouble entering the contest at TGF I decided to make some changes to the card. I added the flowers, the pink border, and some pearls to the number...I think this looks much better. I knew it needed more last night or this morning, I guess, but I was just way too tired to think. So after making the changes I went back to TGF and had to re register in order to be able to upload...probably a blessing in disguise.

Moving on, for the card I used some DCWV cardstock that I had in different packs, border was one from MS, and the flowers from Imaginesce.

For the wings: Anya's outer wings were from Grafix clear craft plastic which I stamped with stays on jet black ink then went over with a ranger perfect medium pen and embossed with a mixture of embossing gels. I cut out the wings leaving extra length at the end. Next I cut around the outline of Anya's arms, just enough to slide in the strip from the wings, then inserted them in. I then bent them up a little and taped them on the back.

The crown was from the storybook cricut cartridge and for the underpart i took the same plastic and stamped it with stays on ink in a purple, embossed it,and cut it out the same size to go behind the white crown.

Sorry that was so lengthy but i thought for anyone who might like to know I'd put it out there. I think in the future I'm going to give myself a couple of days before I post to competitions... It seems lately that after I've taken a pic of my creation I can spot more things I can do. Anyway, hope you enjoy! Now I have to go delete one of my profiles on TGF and hopefully all will be good. Have a good one, Autumn

Black, White, and Red Card

I made this card for the Wild Flower Patch black, white, and red challenge and for the Sketch Girl challenge. The papers are just some cardstock that I had and the image is a digital from The Greeting Farm. I made the cut-outs on my cricut and the corner punch is from Martha Stewart. To make the flower I stamped some text on white paper, then distressed the edges and then inked them. The little pearl in the center of the flower is from basic gray. To top it off I sprayed it with some glimmer and heat dried it. I'm not entirely happy with where I put the sentiment, probably should have put it in the lower right corner, but I am still learning and now I'll know what not to do next time.

pink and yellow challenge

This is basically another version of the preceeding card as I thought of some things I could due to spruce it up a little. This version will be entered into a challenge at SNR...when I manage to pop on over there and do it.

butterfly card

I made this card for for the sewmanycards challenge.

The challenge was to use one of there images and three different techniques.
There butterfly was their freebie last week and my techniques were:inking, distressing, and embossing. I used papers from basic gray that were pink and yellow because there is a challenge going on at SNRthat requires you to use those colors...I will post more info after I've entered it. Again, no sentiment, cause I don't know what Ill be using it for and quite frankly I'm not big of them...I'd rather write inside. The inside of this card is pretty neat too but I was in a hurry to post and I will put it up soon.

So, it's been a few hours now since I posted my first pics of this and inbetween dealing with a sick and teething child I've been trying to get the info and this last pic posted. The pic below is the inside of the card. I have to say I really love how decorating the inside of the cards adds to them...I'm glad I was able to see this done on other people's blogs and make it work for me too.

Motivet Challenge

Here is the card I made for the motivet sketch challenge.

This was my first card challenge and it was very challenging for me.

Coloring this cat was the first time I REALLY used my copics and obviously I have a lot to learn, but, practice makes perfect. There is no sentiment yet as I've not decided what I"m going to use it for, but I think it looks good without one so I may not even put one on. Anyway, I decided to also make the inside pretty so that's what you see below. I've seen the inside of cards decorated a lot lately and I really like it so I thought I'd give it a shot. Overall I'm pretty happy with how this turned out and I'll will continue to practice with my copics. Feel free to leave any helpful tips and Thanks for looking!
