Autumn is Here

Thinking ahead to Thanksgiving, I was inspired to make this cute pumpkin
using a  scalloped oval punch. The background Swirls are from a retired Stampin' Up Set called Baroque Motifs. I added some punched leaves and curled
paper tendrils.  Hope it inspires you.

Die-Cut Scraps Add Drama

I always keep my paper scraps even those off-cuts left over after I do die-cuts or punching.
Some of the interesting shapes can be used to embellish projects such as altered books, tags, collage or even your regular sized cards.

For example I noticed the left-over pieces I had after cutting some of these Tim Holtz Flourishes.....






looked like the oriental dragons you see on Kimonos.









With that in mind I put my scraps to use to make this pretty kimono card.





See how dramatic it is now, decorated with off-cuts.
