It's time for a  'Trick or Treat'  Halloween challenge as chosen by our lovely Jayne over at BBTB2 today!

I chose to make some of these cute 3D pumpkins which are free on Cricut Craftroom at the moment!
I cut 4 of the dotty pumpkins at 2 1/2" and 4 at 4 1/2" and 4 of the zig zag pumpkins at 3 1/2". and finally 3 corresponding leaves in the said sizes. The pumpkin cuts are all perfectly symmetrical so you just score each one down the centre and glue them back to back so each 4 make one 3D pumpkin. I used My Mind's Eye Hallowen Sparkly stack for my papers, inking all the edges once I had 'built' my pumpkins and added some black organza ribbon to finish off along with the cut leaves.

Please pop over to BBTB2 and look at their fabulous Halloween creations, they are amazing! and please join us in our challenge this week.

Thanks for popping by!

Over at BBTB2 this week our fabulous DT leader Susan chose Fall Leaves for our challenge. Susan asked us to use the maple leaf from Art Philosophy cricut cartridge or any other cartridge if we didn't have this cartridge.
I don't  have this cartridge so chose a maple leaf from the Stamping cartridge.

I created a shaped card using Cricut Craft Room to weld 2 shadow leaf cuts at 7" together. I cut another shadow in cream linen for the front of my card and the base cut at 7" using kraft card. I embossed the kraft card using Creative Expressions embossing folder 'Crackle' then pop dotted the shadow and the top layer on to my card base for extra dimension. Thanks is cut using a cuttlebug die in cream and black card and slightly offset to create a shadow look. Finally I twisted some gold and bronze jewellry wire to create some leaf tendrils and tied some cream and black raffia to finish off.

Please pop over to BBTB2 and see the fabulous fall leaf creations from the rest of the DT, and please join us in our challenge we always love seeing your beautiful creations!

Thanks for popping in!
