Autumn colours and Use a Die Cut

Here in the Southern Hemisphere were have just finished Autumn with 1 June being the start of Winter.  

Here is my sample card 


My main focal image is a stamp I borrowed a few weeks ago when I had friends over to "play".  I used Wild Honey distress ink to stamp it and then matted with some grey and then onto brown card.  Sentiment from Winnie & Walter.  

We would love to have you join our challenge.  Anyone, anywhere in the world is welcome to play along.

And over at  CCC Digi Creations challenge #2 is underway.  We had overwhelming response to our first challenge.   So we are looking forward to seeing you back again...  So what's the challenge?

Use a Digi with a Die Cut somewhere on your creation.  We have a lovely sponsor this challenge

 

We got to work with some cute as digi stamps this time..   I made two cards to share on the blog



First card uses "Love Kitty"  a real sweetie.  Printed and cut with a Spellbinders label die.  I added some ink while the die was still in place to give the glow around the Kitty.   My background die is from Penny Black, cut from some cream card and backed with black card.  I also used a Simon Says Stamp die for my banner, with it's matching sentiment.


And for my second card I used "Fancy Fish"
 

My die cut with this one was the stitched rectangle from Lil' Inkers.  I went with Funky colours for my fish and finished with a tiny sentiment.  Added lots of Wink of Stella and some blue sequins. My background was dry embossed with a circle folder.  

Thanks for preserving with this long post.  I'll be back tomorrow with my cards for Chalk'n'stock.

I really love the 'range' of designs you shared with us today...your first card is stunning! I love how you played with the color combo, and your design is just perfect! Love how you inked around the kitty on your 2nd card, and your last card is so fun! Really fabulous coloring, and I'll bet it's really sparkly in person!
