I know it's no surprise to you that I am featuring another card with smiling food on it, but I can't help it. Especially since it's fall themed food. ❤ Even more especially since it's October, which is the best month of the whole year.
Hello friends! Sarah here and I am delighted to be here with my first Design Team post! I am in love with these adorable acorns--seriously! Adorable right?!?! :) For more details stop on over at my blog.
It's Kathy, from Kathy and Kids, and today I am sharing with you a giant Birthday Cupcake card. I have 4 September birthdays in my family so I have been busy making cards. I love taking the cut files and making them into shape cards.
For this card I used the "Swirl Cupcake" from the Birthday Panda Cutting Files.

Hello all! Leah Schaeffer here today to share this fun page! Ok…not too much into the coming season but hey..it is still VERY warm here in sunny California! So…hope it's okay to share!
One of my favorite ways to design a scrapbook page featuring die cuts is to use one BIG center of focus image. Yes, little is cute but big means a grander impact on your page. Then you can come in with those smaller details. I started with a sandcastle and pretty much sized it as large as possible to fit my page. Do keep in mind, you really want to have your photos chosen first. Know what's going on the page and then size everything around those pictures! Trying to fit it the other way around is a pain! I promise!
And don't forget the background! Add layering, not only think matting photos but think of background! Adding the super big sun in the back adding another layer, more interest and more color to the page. Same with the clouds. You could of added nothing to the sky but this is SO much more fun!
To mimic a beachy feel I sprayed a tan and brown mist on the paper and inked my separate piles of sand. I sprayed the sandcastle as well and chose 3 different tan colors and textured paper for more interest. Each cut on the page was also inked in matching colors (sand, shells, etc).

For my car I used PPPR "Movie Popcorn Cutting Files", and to be honest while I was making this card I ended up having a bowl of popcorn (yummy). I chalked all the popcorn before gluing them together and outlined the pop corn box with a VersaMarker pen. I used the Tim Holtz paper distresser to distress the printed paper. I don't like the mess it makes but love the look it gives. The sentiment is from PBD "Kitchen Puns" stamp set and finish my card off I added some sequins.
