Smashing Pumpkins



Good Morning fellow crafters and bloggers :) back again for a 4th day running - woah !

Our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs this week is Corner Adorners, and as always the winner will get a fabulous $20 voucher to spend online at the Cheery Lynn website.  There have been some stunning creations made this week with the new release dies from Cheery Lynn and I thought I would showcase a few more of the new dies today on this cute seasonal birthday card.
 
I started out with a 6 x 6 Kraft card base and layered cream and green bazzil cardstock, MME papers and inked the edges with brushed corduroy DI.  I used a fabulous Mo Manning image called Punkin (which is the first digi I ever bought), and then had a great time playing about with some really fun dies.

I joined each Corner die with one of the brilliant Expandable Tiny Border dies - this is now officially my new favourite border die - I love it! :)  I added acorns in the corners, extra leaves and I used the Quilling Strip die to make the rolled swirls in the top corners too.  The wonderful Fall Pumpkin dies cut beautifully and have great texture, but most of all I love the twiddly bits that come with them - they too are so much fun! 

Finally, the mini 3d pumpkins were - yes, you guessed it -  nicked out of my pot pourri bowl - lol  :) 
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to play along with our challenge this week and dont forget there is also daily inspiration from the other very talented members of our DT over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.

I should think the pot pourri bowl is looking somewhat depleted by now! You've put some shine into that pumpkin - it looks positively varnished & I love those little quilled adornments to your acorns. some serious matting again - looks brilliant.
