Fun with Chevrons


Over at Top Tip Tuesday we are kicking off a new challenge and it's Chevrons. I couldn't resist using this Turkey and Fall Leaves cutting file by Carina Gardner which I picked up at the Silhouette online store. More on my card in minute but first a big thank you to Sweet Stamps for sponsoring this challenge. 

Prize is a $10.00 gift certificate.

Deneen has some great tips on the challenge blog on how to keep your paper organized and there's a DT CALL going on as well. If you'd fancy designing for Top Tip Tuesday then check the details out and throw your name in the hat. Good Luck!  

It's so hard to believe that Thanksgiving (here in the US) is literally in a few weeks and that trick-or-treaters will be ringing doorbells everywhere this Friday. Where has this year gone? :( 

I wanted this card to be CAS (clean and simple) and I couldn't resist using the Turkey and Fall Leaves cutting file because it happened to have this chevron turkey in it. :) I added a fun googly eye and altered some alpha's by Tim Holtz with an Adirondack Lettuce Paint Dabber then glued them on top. I should note that I backed the image with orange cardstock. Finishing touches were added with a wood button, twine, punched photo corners and a MS punched border. 
Here's my Tip: If you're having issues with your punch not cutting well use aluminum foil to sharpen it.

Don't forget about our DT CALL going on and be sure to visit my teamies to see how they incorporated chevrons in their projects. 

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful week!
