Welcome to Week 3 of "Autumn Magic/Spring Wonder" Challenge No. 40 at Anything But a Card Challenges

Good Morning Everyone! Today begins week 3 of our "Autumn Magic/Spring Wonder" Challenge No. 40 and more fabulous creations by our designers celebrating the seasons of fall, of spring... or BOTH!

Just a reminder as there seems to be a bit of confusion this go round... THIS CHALLENGE IS NOT AN OPEN THEME. Please read below for instructions and prompt for the theme "Autumn Magic/Spring Wonder" for Anything But a Card Challenges No. 40.


The current Challenge... is one that is in celebrating the change of seasons. For Anything But a Card Challenges No. 40 use the prompt "Autumn Magic / Spring Wonder" to inspire your muse. Since we have two hemispheres that are on opposite seasons, we thought that we would include both seasons in this challenge. So those of us coming out of winter can create and celebrate spring and those of us starting to feel the heat of summer fade away can create for the autumn season... or if you are inclined – combine the two as some of our designers have done.

As I am very much in the north I have made an Autumn Magic hanging using those fabulous autumnal Distress Ink colours - Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey and Aged Mahogany.  There are more details and pictures on my blog.



This month I have completed a reverse canvas featuring elements from both Autumn and Spring. The basis was a yin / yang piece, with hand- drawn leaves and flowers. Lots of experimenting with different colours, acrylic paints, sprays and distress stains on various papers gave me the basis for leaves and flowers. Pop on over to my blog to see how this was done.


The wonderful fall leaves on our trees inspired me to create an autumn project. My altered birdhouse received a few fall leaves of its own! Please visit my blog for more details!


My Spooky Skeleton Shadow Box is my interpretation of "Autumn Magic" - Halloween is my favorite holiday and Autumn is my favorite time of year! Check out my blog for information on how I made this spook-tacular creation!


BOO !! For this challenge, as my favorite season is Autumn, that is the one I went for... and of course Halloween. Not really done much for Halloween before so I thought I would challenge myself and delve into this genre. Here is a tag I made full of Tim Holtz goodness. If you would like to see how I created this piece please don't hesitate to pop on over to my blog and take a quick peek.




This year I've seen so many bottle and yarn creations it's addicting. I've pinned a gazillion things and knew I wanted to create a few. For this challenge I created a fabulous pumpkin vase. Visit my blog for more details.
