Fall Card using Gel Pens with Cricut

For today's project I decided to use gel pens to make this cute and easy Fall card. I love the look they give to a sentiment for a card or for actual drawing.

For my project I chose to make a Thanksgiving card.

Here is the inside sentiment using gel pens, my cricut and the Thanksgiving  Cartridge
I sized the sentiment at 1.917 x 4.264 so it would fit perfectly .

The outside of the card:

The card size is 5/5
I cut the patterned paper at 4 3/4
I inked the edges in Chestnut Roan
The acorn in cut from Art Philosophy at 3.5"
The Red Leaf is cut out at 3.5"
and the Orange Leaf is cut out at 3"

The tag is cut out at 1.5"
I used brown twine 
and the stamped sentiment is from Pink By Designs Bountiful Blessings line

Trick or Treat Banner

For my first project I used Country Life and Teddy Bear Parade to make my "Trick or Treat" Banner for my fireplace mantel. I love Halloween and don't have much inside cuteness, most of it is outside. So I decided to make some Halloween items for my house.

Here is a picture of my banner

This picture is kinda far, but every time I got closer the picture came out blurry, 
I think it's time for a new camera  :)

Up close picture of the word "Trick" 
I love DCWV paper!!

Cute little bear from Teddy Bear Parade

Here are the details of my banner:

I cut the banners from Country Life
at 5"
I used Happy Hauntings Font 
in various sizes to fit the banners

Teddy Bear Parade for the Witch Bears
cut at 2.5"
For my next project I made a Police Graduation  Card for our friends Son who just graduated from the Police Academy :)

The card is a 6x6
I used a dark blue then added a lighter blue for depth
The policeman is from Everyday Paper Dolls and  cut out at 5"
and I used Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face Stamp
I used a stamp that I bought from Michael's for the inside sentiment, sorry it's blurry. I need a new camera badly!! It's going on my Christmas List!!

For my last project I made 6 "BOO" gift cones for my friends. I am going to fill them with treats and leave them on their front doors with the "BOO" poem :)

I used Winter Woodland for the cones
I cut the cones out at 9.5"
added ribbon to the inside for a handle
I cut a 12 x 1 1/2" piece of paper and scored it every 1/4" to make a rosette.

Pumpkin box using Sweet Tooth Cartridge

I saw on Pinterest that some talented lady made a pumpkin out of the Sweet Tooth Cartridge and since I love anything having to do with Pumpkins, I wanted to make one for me!! Yes, ME!! I always seem to make things for friends and this time I made something for ME!!! :)

I LOVE how it turned out :)

Who knew the Ice Cream topper on the Sweet Tooth Cart could make so many things besides a Ice Cream :)

I cut Conely1 out at 9.5
I cut Conely 2 out at 11.61

I used the red tacky tape to adhere the box

I used the Thanksgiving Cartridge for the Pumpkin stem and vines

Cut 2 stems out at 4.5

and the leaves and vines were cut out at 1.5" x 4.889"
and another vine cut out at  1.75" x 5.708"
