A Cricut Kind of Fall

Did I say I thought I was going to have fun with my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge? Yeah, baby!


The 6 scalloped circles were cut at 3.75", the doily ones out of Autumn Terracotta and the solid out of Sunflower. I glued the doily over the solid, folded them in half, and adhered them together.
I thought I would get all fancy and sponge the edges of the pumpkin, but once I got the Autumn Terracotta over the Sunflower, it didn't seem to need any more help.  I rolled up a 1"x 12" piece of Cocoa cardstock to make the stem and used liquid glass to adhere both the leaf and stem to the pumpkin.

The leaf is actually green stamped on Sunflower; it didn't photograph well.

Then, you  must do something with the leftover piece of frilly Autumn Terracotta, right?

I bought these little accent pieces at a garage sale, so can't tell you where to go get them. Aren't they adorable?

The leaves are rolled. The Chocolate one uses the second generation technique, then the edges were re-rolled in more Chocolate. The green is Olive rolled in New England Ivy, and the orange is Sorbet rolled heavily in Autumn Terracotta and then rolled again just on the edges in Chocolate.

Love how these turned out, so I'm entering them in the Heart 2 Heart Autumn/Halloween Challenge.

I am not a CTMH consultant, but I am completely sold on their products.  I have owned my Cricut for a couple years now. Since I purchased my Art Philosophy cartridge, I have used it more in the last two months than the last two years combined. I'll say it again...Yeah, baby!

Until next time,
Becca
