Free Pumpkin cut from Cutting Up With Class 1st challenge

  October is promising to be very creative. I keep finding more card challenges, but this is a first, and cuttingupwithclass is offering the pumpkin cuts for free! There designers made some fabulous cards for inspiration. My favorite is Jani's designs. That's her link displaying her pumpkin mini album and a step card using the pumpkin cuts. So cute. But the challenge is to make your own project so here is mine.

I cut the pumpkins from water color paper and colored them with bic markers, inking the edges black. My cricut is cutting wonky... I'm just not getting clean cuts, so I couldn't use the cute little swirl they include with the files. 

The scarecrow is from Scrapping Table . I altered that file by breaking it apart and removing the cuts for the eyes because of my problems with the machine. I used water color paper for him too but colored him with prisma colored pencils. I had to cut the crow by hand because the machine messed that up as well. The sun flower is from SVGCUTS 3 D Mums and fall flowers. I added tiny little beads for the center, then punched and added the leaves. I made the sign and wrote : pumpkins 4 sale. The clouds are made with Liquid Applique then puffed them up with a heat gun. Dimensional dots where used for the pumpkins and the scarecrow. Now I want to make a step card.
