Fancy Fold Fall Card

This is my card for the September Challenge Your Stash group on SCS.  This is our 21st month of de-stashing-a year and a half into our challenges.

The premise is to create a card or something else that uses only items that are in your own stamp room--nothing new is to be purchased.  The hostess each month posts their challenge to the group and the card is due to be posted on the 28th. Each person in the group creates their card with their own image, their own papers, their own embellishments with their own supplies--using up items from their own stash!  The card can be for any occasion and each person is encouraged to send the card on its way to someone so it can be admired.  It is a way for us to step out of the box a bit and create something that follows a challenge--isn't that what a challenge is supposed to be.  And--no money is spent as all items are to be already available in each of own stamping spaces.

I posted our September challenge--Make a card with fall themed card and make it a fancy fold. 

I went with a newer stamp set that I recently got and the entire set just makes me laugh out loud!  I also like to make Z-Fold cards as they highlight the image.

Here is a picture with more of the card open:

If you check some of the blogs on my sidebar, you may find others who have posted their cards in the past day or so as the cards are to be posted on the 28th.  There may be more posted in the thread on SCS, so you might want to check out the link here.  We also have a keyword for the SCS Gallery--it is CYSSEP.  You might see many cards there is you do a search.

I hope you enjoyed my card and I know I am excited to check out what my other hoarders, I mean stash reducers have made!  Thanks for stopping by today!  For October, Suzy is up and we have already posted our theme.  Be sure to check back to see what we create on the 28th!

Birthday Blooms

This is my card for September's Monthly Challenge for the Creative Card Chicks.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items to complete the challenge each month. 

Sue is the hostess this month and sent everyone this sweet rose image from Stampin' Up, along with some great birthday sentiments. She also sent great patterned paper along with some silver sequins and 2 colors of baker's twine.  It is all on my card--thanks Sue!

Here is the inside of my card:

The Creative Card Chicks are to post our cards between the 21st and 23rd of each month--so if you check the blogs on my sidebars, you may see more of these wonderful creations! Many of our members also post their card in our SCS thread--so you might find more there.  Kelly is up for October, so be sure to come back and join us again!
