SU Autumn Accents Bigz Die

SU Seasonally Scattered with Autumn Accents Bigz Die

Heidi and her creative young assistant have created a fun sketch and theme challenge

for us at the Friday Mashup # 177 this week.



Here’s your Mashup Challenge:
Create a project using the “Sketch.”
Create a project with “Leaves.”
or Mash it Up! and create a project with “Leaves using the Sketch.”

I have been so taken with the SU Seasonally Scattered stamp set and the Autumn Accent Bigz die. I have posted both elements on two different cards as of late. Oh, I hope it doesn’t bore you but just gives you some more ideas…

This card has the “Leaves” challenge covered but I am stretching the sketch challenge a bit too far though…Are you going to mash it up this week? I sure hope so!

Be sure to check out the cards the Design Team created for you this week at the

Friday Mashup.

For an embellishment, since Blackberry Bliss doesn’t come in candy dots, I made those little candy dots in the corner by putting Crystal Effects on some paper punched circles. SUO Challenges # 105 is asking us to feature an embellishment, and I just loved how these candy dots turned out as an embellishment!


SU Fall Fest with Autumn Accents Bigz

Happy Fall Y’all!

In Pittsburgh, we definitely get to enjoy a beautiful fall. I am looking forward to an AppleFest in a few weeks and relaxing drives along the colorful landscape that Pennsylvania offers this time of year.

I wanted to share a CAS layered fall card I made that fits in with Ann’s Paper Players Challenge # 212– Create a fall project.

SU Autumn Accents Bigz for the Friday MashUp

Liliana at the Friday MashUp # 132 has a challenge for us this week to use the color orange and  leaves/trees in our card/project. Make sure you go over and see what the Design Team has created. We would love to see you play along this week…if you have never done so before- you will get hooked!


At my stamp classes each month, I prepare a 3-D project along with two cards for my gals. We jumped into fall the first week of October by creating this Autumn candle with the SU Autumn Accents Bigz Die and the SU Sweater Weather DSP in the Holiday Catalog.  We pulled out all the colors in the DSP with the band going around the candle and the color of the leaves. We created texture with the SU Lattice EF, the twine, and the button. I used some pretty brown glimmery paper from a nearby craft store because it coordinated with the Chocolate Chip in the DSP. We placed a pumpkin scented candle inside to finish the  autumn project.

It is a bit difficult to photograph a 3-D project but I think you can see that the twine goes around the band that is made of Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, and the Sweater Weather DSP.
