As you can see, there is lots of scope here. You got flowers, fruit, pumpkins, leaves, autumn colours to mention just a few.
Monika Skinner used one of my Nicecrane image I decided on and had a play with. It is from the Birds Family CS collection of 5 pre-coloured images. Here it is, my DT piece for this week:
Before you ask … the writing on the DS paper is side on because I liked the vertical broken line effect rather than going for stripes.
I have some more creations made using Nicecrane Designs digi stamps/images. It is a sort of continuation of yesterday’s DT post for Addicted to Stamps and More (ATSM). As you well know I am also designing for Nicecrane Designs, and given that Ignacio is sponsoring this month’s challenges at ATSM, I shall be posting lots more projects using his images.
I used this beautiful image of birds in the snow to make this simply sparkling traditional Christmas card. I copied and pasted the image into a word document, set the image width to 7.5 cm, something I did for all of the bird images, and printed the image on white card.
I cut my image and layered it on a piece of black card stock. For my background I embossed a piece of foiled card with snowflakes and layered it on black card stock. I layered my image onto my background off-set from the centre as shown and added a ribbon down one side and adhered it to my base card. I then die cut two snowflakes from holographic card, added a brad to the middle before adhering them to the card and finishing off by adding a Peel-Off sentiment.
Christmas is coming soon, so people is creating adorable and really Sweet Christmas Cards,,,,,,I love this season,,,,so I have designed some new sheets,,,to offer you a different Card Style,,,,,,,so funny, so cute, so really amazing,,,,,,,,with vibrant colors,,,,,,,,,,here is my new Christmas Sheet "Christmas Children Greetings" based on the famous picts by Bowyle.

Catherine was working to create these incredible cute Xmas gift bags, I think these images from Nicecrane Designs are really sweet... They are from the set "Christmas Children Greetings", and I have made quite a few gift bags using them... Here is one...

I feel like a bit of an over-achiever posting Christmas cards in early October, but Ignacio's amazing images over at Nicecrane really inspired me to get them done. The colors on these images are awesome! They are vibrant without being overpowering. Really liked how they turned out.
I actually brought these cards in a kit to the recent Crop and Create in Cornwall, Ontario that I attended this past weekend. I wanted to give myself an easy assembly task so I could get the lay of the land.
The nearly free flowers were pre-made ages and ages ago so I had that advantage as well! Good thing since I was in a cupcake eating frenzy for most of the evening. Talk about distracted scrappin!
