For my first card today I have made an Easel Card using the new Burt and Jack and the Pumpkin Spice Lattes Funny Bones sentiment.

The sentiment normally is just one sentiment and there is couple of pumpkins between the first part of the sentiment and the second. For this card I decided to stamp the different parts of the sentiment separately and masked off the pumpkins as I didn't need them. As you can see I used part of the sentiment on the card front and the other part on the base which also helps to keep the Easel standing when open.

It is also challenge time with a couple of friends of mine. Each month we get together and go to our favorite stamp/scrapbook store and come home with one or two new goodies. So we decided to also challenge ourselves each month using a product we all have.

Last month when we went shopping, we all had to have the Tattered Lace Half Circle dies. I had actually purchased mine a few days earlier and my friends had seen what I had already done with mine that they needed them too hehe! 

I have used the Half Circle die to create my Easel card. By placing the half circle on above the score line it cuts out the circle from the card.

Here is my card closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

Here is a look at the back of my Easel card so you can see where and how I used the half circle die to create my easel card.

For my second project today I created a treat topper using the new Grinch Pills Funny Bones sentiment and Riley as the Grinch which is an existing stamp.

I have again used my Tattered Lace half circle die to create the pop up topper.
