50, ShortCuts Challenge & Jillibean Soup Guest DT Call

Today Paula, my FIL's wife, is celebrating her 50th birthday. I made her a card using BoBunny's new Delilah collection that I bought at Paper & Pictures last weekend. I also bought the ric rac ribbon by May Arts in various colors. I just love the size of this ric rac. Happy Birthday, Paula!



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: BoBunny Delilah Rub-ons: Melissa Frances Letters: American Crafts Ribbon: May Arts Tools: Fiskars Upper Crest border punch, Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circles Large, Classic Scalloped Circles Large, sewing machine Other: foam tape

I used to post my ShortCuts projects on Wednesday, but from now on I'll post on Friday. You may have already read on the ShortCuts blog that ShortCuts is hosting a challenge week. Each day of the week the ShortCuts artists will be issuing a challenge and you can play along and be entered to win ShortCuts goodies!! My challenge to you is to create a Fall theme card or item.

I seem to be into shaped cards at the moment and cut a scalloped circle card using my QuicKutz Silhouette. I adhered a transparent circle cut from a ShortCuts Clear Full Sheet to create a window card, and added rub-ons to the sheet. The pumpkins are also cut with the Silhouette.



Supplies: ShortCuts Clear Full Sheet Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: BoBunny Delilah Rub-ons: Melissa Frances, October Afternoon Ribbon: May Arts Tools: QuicKutz Silhouette Digital Designs, sewing machine Ink: VersaColor Pinecone Other: foam tape

Wauw, dat ziet er weer supermooi uit. Ik vind 'shaped cards' ook zo mooi. Ze zijn toch net weer een beetje anders dan anders. Prachtig papier ook trouwens.

En ik ga eens bedenken of ik iets met de call kan. Wie niet waagt, die niet wint...
