Art With an Attitude Blog Hop - Autumn is in the Air

The Stampers with an Attitude team is doing a blog hop, themed {Art with an Attitude}!!  "Who are we?" you might ask?  We are Close to My Heart (CTMH) consultants, who are passionate and talented crafters!

You are in the right place if you just came from

This month, we are focusing on Autumn!!  With Thanksgiving at the end of this month, I created this to go on display in my house.  The frame is one of CTMH's new Design Decor Shadow Boxes.  You can lift up the frame and it stays secured by magnets.  I used the Pathfinding papers to create this autumn inspired decor.

All of the Cricut cuts came from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  The leaves, from the tree overlay, are flipped over (as the pattern seen is the back side of the overlay) and popped some up with 3D foam tape for added dimension.  Gold Shimmer Trim gives it just a bit of sparkle!  For further dimension, I distressed all the pieces with Chocolate ink & a quarter of a sponge.  I found distressing the pieces BEFORE I removed them from the Cricut mat was WAY easier than after I removed them.
