Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge -- Glittery Gourds & Inspired By All the Little Things #28

Today, I have two cards to share...

First of all,
it's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD of the Glittery Gourds Challenge will be invited as a 
Guest Designer in a future challenge!
Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge Blog for all the challenge info and deadline.

White I was tempted to use some pumpkin stamps to make my card,
I decided to use the new Happy Harvest stamp set & coordinating Confetti Cuts
from Reverse Confetti.

I started by running my largest Lacy Scallop Frame Confetti Cuts through
my diecutting machine with my shim so I could pop out all of the scallops
and back my card with some gold foil.
I diecut my Happy Harvest Confetti Cuts from kraft cardstock and stamped them in 
versamark and heat embossed them in white and gold.

I diecut the Wheat Confetti Cuts from Cloud White Cardstock 
and pressed them into my versamark pad before heat embossing them in gold.


Make sure you visit each of the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge
 designers' blogs for more inspiration!
for the challenge details and to play along with us!

I also have a card to share for 

I love these colourful pumpkins, but again decided to create a card
using something other than pumpkins instead.
This time, I reached for my Simon Says Stamp/Reverse Confetti
Stamptember stamp set: Forest Friends.

I started by stamping the sweet fox and then falling leaves on watercolour paper
in versafine onyx black in and heat embossing them in clear.
Then, using a lot of masking, I stamped the pile of leaves using the two 
leaf stamps from the set.
I coloured these in using my Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers and a water brush.

I stamped the sentiment using a stamp from Forever Fall.


Visit Inspired By All the Little Things to see the rest of the DT's takes 
on the inspiration photo and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, October 20th to link up your card.

Thanks for looking!

Your gold acorn with the lacy edge die is so elegant, Leigh. That was a LOT of masking to do for that pile of leaves but it was worth it. That darling fox playing in them is so cute.
