I honestly don't know where the time goes, though this week was my "work" week when I am helping hubs with his business.
I thought it would be a good day to make a few cards.
I started with the Card Concept challenge, I loved the colors used in
the inspiration photo. I am going to call this style clean and layered, I
think the inked background takes it away from clean and simple. The
trees are an SU die and the blending is DOX inks in mustard seed, carved
pumpkin, candied apple, and villainous potion. The sentiment comes from
Close to My Heart. I thought the finished card was also good for the gallery at Four Seasons- fall.
I liked Amy's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the design evolved into this along with some inspiration from Double D's Challenge - Oktoberfest, the tree colors in the upper left mood board drew me in.
The paper is from Stampin Up, the mouse in the leaves is from MFT, and the sentiment is from CTMH. It was fairly easy to round it out on a block to stamp inside the circle.
That's it for today, enjoy your weekend. Thanks so much for visiting.
Two gorgeous fall cards, Cat - just love the vibrant ink blending behind the trees on card one and that mouse looks adorable atop that patterned paper!!
Wowie, the ink blend on your first card is stunning, and all the more so with those bare black trees against it. Your leafy card with the mouse is like a celebration of fall. Gosh, that paper is soooo pretty. You did a good job with the sentiment. I always see that particular circle die as a paper plate or a pie crust. Cute! Glad you played along with us at Double D!
Great inking on the first card! Love the falling leaves pp on the second card. The little mouse image is so cute and colored beautiful to match the paper. Thanks for sharing at the Double D, "Octoberfest" Challenge.
Wonderful set of cards. The ink blending of the first is perfect. Thanks for sharing with us at The Four Seasons Challenge. We love seeing all the wonderful entries.
Awesome inking on the first card, Cat! You have captured a Fall sunset beautifully! Love the little mouse on the second card! A perfect use of the sketch!
Both cards are just beautiful Cat! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Double D challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often. We appreciate your support!

Amazing inked background for those tree silhouettes, what a pretty card! I never grow tired of those little mice. Your terrific card had inspired me to ink my set up!

Wow, your first card is stunning!! I love the autumn sky!!
Your second card is so lovely and so cute. Design paper and your beautifully colored motif go together perfectly.
The screen saver on my Roku television has had the most wonderful design that I've been thinking of recreating - no need. You've done it beautifully, Cat! We all want to see those colors in our own neck of the woods!
Loving that acorn paper and it's a darling backdrop for our friend Mr. Autumn Mouse! So happy to see him again.
Two times WWCD, Cat!
LOVE both of these cards Cat! Your ink blending and silhouette image of the trees is SO pretty and that adorable mouse on your 2nd card is just too sweet surrounded by all those colorful leaves! So glad you found time to play!! Hugs. :0)
I know the feeling re the time. It just disappears and I never get everything done that I want to, but if you have been working last week too, you are doing pretty well. Your first card is a stunner such amazing colours and blending with wonderful black contrast. What an amazing tree stamp that is, love it. You second card is altogether calmer, but equally as nice with great colours xx
Wow! This is such a sweet card! This little mouse is super cute and I love the happy colors. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
