Autumn 2x2 Square Challenge



This month's challenge was to create a 2x2 square with an Autumn or Thanksgiving theme.  Aaron and I used the same stamps, but completely different results. 

Both acorns were stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I colored mine with More Mustard and Early Espresso markers.  Aaron did not color her acorn because she stamped on More Mustard.

I used Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake with the sentiment traditionally placed.  Aaron used Chocolate Chip for the background and More Mustard to stamp on.  She punched the sentiment and sponged the edge.  Aaron also placed the sentiment non-traditionally, but with a great result.

The stamps and die are from My Daily Bread.

Bosses Day: Wordle Design

Bosses Day is coming up soon.  This card is for my daughter's boss (who is a Minnesota Vikings fan). 

Colors:
Blackberry Bliss
Crushed Curry

No stamps.  The design was made on Wordle.net.  I copied and pasted a poem about bosses day from a website.  Then I added some extra words.  The program allows you to choose a color palette and a layout.  You can change the layout until you are happy with the design.  And it is free!
