It's Challenge Monday #8 at Jen's Digi Stamps Blog and it's FALL in full swing. Jen has come up with some fall cuties that I have enjoyed coloring with my Copics. One of the things I have had a hard time with since joining Jen's Design team has been how to use my Cricut with the digi stamps. I had never used them before and to be honest it kind of "threw me off my game" a bit. Not to mention that I did an update on my Imagine that almost killed it and made more than half of my cartridges useless. Enough whining....I finally got the new update on my Imagine (it fixed all the problems, yay!!!) and just couldn't wait to use it so this is what I came up with to go along with Jen's fall stamps.
I usually don't like leaving white around my digi when cutting it out but I had used a nice blue and brown fanned out from the image and I didn't want to cut it off. So to keep it from looking too much like a sticker I inked around the edges with brown ink and I ended up liking it. I cut the tag from the built in images from the Imagine and used my favorite stamps from K. Andrew Designs on it. The sentiment is from her "Fall-O-Ween set that is mix-n-match. Love how versatile it is. Of course being from Texas, I loved that it had "ya'll" in it! Hehe! The ribbon is from Doodlebug Designs.
I love how my sentiment stamps from K. Andrew are playing so nicely with my digi stamps from Jen's Digi Stamps and then of course, my Imagine had fun jumping in to make them all "fall" together :)
