Scarecrows, Hay, Crows and a Sketch

It is time for a new challenge at Cooking With Cricut.  This week we have scarecrows, hay, crows and a sketch for you.  There are three different sketches, depending on the type project you choose to do.  I chose a card project.  Here is the sketch for the card.

And here is the card I created.   The papers used are DCWV.  And the vine border was created with a Martha Stewart border punch. 

First, let me say that I love my little scarecrow.  Using the Gypsy, I cut the scarecrow from the Simply Charmed cart with just the top part of the image showing on the cutting mat.  I did not want to use the entire scarecrow body, so therefore to save paper and time, I just designed him "bottomless".  After cutting him out, I gave him a face that actually makes him look scared of the crows!  Ha!Ha!  His little face is stamped with a Peachy Keen stamp from the Pumpkin Faces set.  And I gave him a raffia ribbon bow on his hat.  

When cutting the fence out, I used the same method on my Gypsy.  I only wanted the top of the fence to show.  The fence is cut from the Heritage cartridge.  The Indian corn is cut from the Thanksgiving cartridge.  After adding brown, yellow and bronze ink to the corn, I added gold, yellow, brown and copper glitter glue.  

This is my new favorite pumpkin cut and it is from Damask Decor.  I just can't seem to get enough of this pumpkin.  I added flourishes cut from Picturesque.  And since I was in the glitter mood the pumpkin and flourishes got glittered too.  The stamp is from Joy's Life.  And all of the little crows that are annoying the scarecrow are epoxy stamps from ColorBok.   

I invite you to go over to Cooking With Cricut  and see the amazing things cooked up by all the talented chefs.  And then after getting all that great inspiration, link up your creation to the Cooking With Cricut  challenge so we can see your wonderful creations too!!
