Happy Birthday, Bro!

I made this card for my Precious Little Brother (PLB). I used Scaredy Cat paper on Slate cardstock, a retired Happy Birthday stamp set with 1 1/4 inch circles and some Washi tape. I added some "manly" bling and used the Dots embossing folder to add some dimension.

Scaredy Cat layout

 This is the layout we did at Club using Scaredy Cat paper. As many of you know, I am not a fan of Halloween so I was pleased to come up with a layout using "Halloween" paper that doesn't have to be covered in trick or treaters. :-)

We made our banners using the Bodacious Banners stamp set with Slate, Thistle and Sunset inks. We used the glossy side of the Sunset paper from the Whimsy Fundamentals. Accents include Sunset chevron and slate Washi tapes. Also Purple Shimmer trim and Black stripe twill ribbon. We added bling with Clear sparkles and Purple glitter gems. I added my title with the Circus Alphabet which was a stamp of the month in the last catalog.

Pineapple Paper Artists Blog Hop

Welcome to my entry of the Autumn Beauty Blog Hop. Maybe you are beginning here or coming from Harriet's blog. Once you have checked out my entry you can continue in the Hop by clicking on the link below.

This is a wreath I made using Pathfinding paper. I covered an 8 inch styrofoam wreath with ribbon and then used a hot glue gun to adhere 2 1/2 inch leaves to the wreath. I cut the leaves with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge using the Petal shape. I folded the tip of the leaf that I glued just to give it a bit of dimension. I also used a pencil to curl the ends of the leaves. Along with Pathfinding paper I used a bit of Barn Red cardstock. I added some Baker's Twine and Rosewood Mini-medley accents. The wooden acorns are no longer available but I couldn't resist sponging them and adding them in.
Now you can hop on over to Gretchen's blog for some more inspiration.

Pathfinding Layout

This is the layout we did at Club using Pathfinding paper. For our embellishments we stamped and cut out images from the Lifetime of Happiness stamp set. On the bottom of page 2 we stamped Season of Thanks in Barn Red. We also used the cork shapes from the Pathfinding assortment and gold or silver sequins. I added a little bronze glitter trim ribbon and Topiary mini-chevron ribbon.
