Pumpkin Patch

Card is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches. I used the Sizzix Eclips Machine.
Holiday Cartridge and Halloween and Scaredy Cat Font. On the Holiday cartridge I cut the pumpkins at 4 inches wide to fit on the bottom.  The fence and haystack were also cut from this cartridge. I cut the fence at 3 inches and then used the pieces function to cut the boards to pop up on the fence.  I used the i-rock tool and copper gems to look like nails on the boards.  I inked the pumpkins on all the lines. The words Pumpkin Patch came from the Halloween cartridge and was cut at 1 1/2 inches. I cut it on the shadow function and regular function. I went around the words with a brown marker.

Enjoy the Ride

This card is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches. I used The Sizzix eclips Machine, The Rockin Janie and Starter Cartridge, and the Flowers and Phrases Cartridge.
From the cartridge I cut the car.  It was cut at 5.00 inches. It comes out smaller then 5 inches because it has a saying that goes with it (you can use the actual button for actual size). I only wanted the car so I used the pieces folder.   The saying was cut using the Rockin Janie Font "Enjoy" and "Ride" were cut at 1.25 inches. The word "The" was cut at 3/4 of an inch. The road comes from the Cricut and the Paper Dolls for Everyday Cartridge. I used the gypsy to get the right size to fit on my card.  I added stitch marks wth a Black Glaze pen.

Eclips St Patrick's Day Card

Made this card with my new Sizzix Eclips cartridge Holiday. All the cuts on the card are from this cartridge. This machine cut everything beautifully. The card is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches. The corners were cut at 1 inch. The vine was cut at 1.5 inches. The saying was cut at 1 inch.  The clover was cut at 2.5 inches. What is so great about this machine is you tell it what material you are using and it sets the pressure and speed.  All the cuts come out clean.  I used the white gel pen for the stitch marks. I used light green stickles on the vine with the clovers. I went around the letters with a glitter pen.

Four Shamrock/Clover Card

The card is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4. The pattern paper is some older paper in my stash. I used the gypsy to make the four panel card and welded the clovers/shamrocks to the squares. The cartridges George and Basic Shapes, Paper Doll Dress Up, and A Child's Year. I then cut them out separately in card stock and  attached them to each one after using the white gel pen around them. The leprechaun was a dollar stamp that I used color pencils on and cut it out. The saying is computer generated using LD Irish font.
The border is printed out and I added some glitter from a glitter pen. I went around the card with a white gel pen.
