Pumpkin Card Embellishments


Today I am sharing with you some cute embellishments I designed and cut with my Cricut.  Last year, I started playing around with Adobe Illustrator, and found that I really enjoy making my own SVG images. So far I have just simply made things like card layouts and whatnot. But I was inspired to make some embellishments for fall cards. I thought I would try my hand at some pumpkins. And this is what I came up with. 

I dare say these turned out way cuter than I expected. After I cut them out, I embossed the white pumpkin top layers, and I added some baker's twine and sticky gems for a simple but cute touch.

You can find the SVG file on my Etsy Shop. This is my first SVG File in the Etsy Shop and therefore I am offering a 20% discount.  
Just use the coupon code MISSMUDGESVG at checkout for your discount on these sweet pumpkins.

Scalloped Circle Baby Card

Hello all!!
I know it's been ages since I posted something, last winter I started taking Graduate classes to get my masters in education through Western Governors University. Since I have started taking classes,things have been hectic not leaving much time for crafting and posting. I did, however, wantto share this lovely card I made using Giraffe and Moon. The image is so cute and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to color it for Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps
I used my scalloped circle easel card template to create this and just love how it turned out.
Thanks for reading!!

Jade Draggone Shaker Card

Hello Everyone! Today I am sharing another take on shaker cards. I am still struggling with waiting till my glue fully dries before I shake it leaving some of my sequins stuck to the edges. I guess I'm not patient enough or something. Today's card features an image by Jade Draggone. You can see all her amazing images here
I spent a lot of time in Adobe Illustrator designing the seashell for the shaker. I think it turned out good. And here is the inside.
I used purple and teal sequins for the inside of the shaker and used my Cricut to cut some craft foam out in the seashell form to raise the shaker. 
Hope you see a bit of inspiration today!! Thanks for reading!!

Sasayaki Glitter Christmas Shaker Card

Hi Friends!
Today I am sharing a card using an image I had the privilege of coloring for the Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps Nov. 1st New Release.  I couldn't wait to color this image us as I had inspiration for what kind of card I would make before I had even printed the image to color. I love those AH HA moments.
This was my second attempt at a shaker card. I am still trying to get the technique down without getting sequins and glitter stuck on the foam that raises the shaker layers. But, I thought this turned out really well for a second attempt. Here is a close up of my colored image.
I colored the image with my Prismacolors using the pencils themselves as the blending agent on Canson Mi Teintes white paper.
The Merry Christmas Sentiment came from a friend of mine from a Kit and Clowder Facebook Card Swap. Let me Tell you, I am so thankful for Alyce and Kit and Clowder. I look forward to all the coloring classes and group support you get from being apart of her group!

The Challenges I am entering this card in are:

Here is the original Image colored for the Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Blog 
Thanks again for reading. I hope my card inspires you!

Over the last couple of weeks I have been sharing different projects that I have made with this template. One of the reasons I have made several projects with this template is because I wanted to test and fine tune the cutting file, the other reason was to show how much potential this SVG has. 
The pictures above show exactly all the cut elements, and the picture below shows the card after it has been embellished with flowers, ribbons, lace, and colored stamped images. There is just SO MUCH potential for this card and I hope you enjoy the free file.

You can choose from my FACEBOOK, my INSTAGRAM, my PINTEREST, or my ETSY SHOP.  Once you have followed my blog and at least ONE other of my sites, go HERE and fill out the form stating you have followed the instructions and tell me where I can send the file to. After I confirm everything you will recieve the link to download the file.

Sasayaki Glitter Christmas Fish Scalloped Circle Easel Card

Hello World!
Today I am sharing another Scalloped Circle Easel Card. Today I am featuring a cute Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamp that I colored up for November 1st New Release. The image is called Christmas Fish. I thought the shape of the fish bowl complimented the shape of my Scalloped Card pretty well.  
I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and Canson Mi Tientes Cardstock and accented with some handmade poinsettias and greenery from my stash, along with some sequins, fun patterned paper and some ribbons.  Here is a closeup of the colored image and sentiment. 
Like all my other Scalloped Circle Cards, I used the SVG that I designed in Adobe Illustrator along with a sentiment that I designed as well. I do hope that you will come back later this week (Possibly this weekend) to see how you can get my SVG for free! 

Here is the original colored image for Sasayaki Glitter  and as always for more super cute images, challenges, freebies, and inspiration check out the Sasayaki Glitter Challenge Blog and Facebook Group.
Thanks for reading! Have a Great Day!

Demera Bashful Fae Scalloped Easel Card

Hi friends!
 Today I'm sharing yet another card I made with my Scalloped Easel SVG Template that I designed this week. Keep looking later this week for more info on how you can get that SVG for free.  For this card I used a freebie image from the Faery Inks Facebook group. I believe she is called Demera Bashful Fae. If you just LoVE this image check out more from the Faery Inks Shop. You can also join the Faery Ink Facebook Group as well.


One of my favorite parts about the Easel Cards is that they make the cards more like gifts than cards. I love to accent them with tons of embellishments as well. This one I acc noted the images with a variety of pink papers and fake daisies and a couple of my handmade roses, as well as some burlap and lace.

I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens. I am still very much getting the hang of coloring with alcohol pens, but I am pleased with the way she turned out.  I am super excited about sharing my SVG with everyone so keep checking back and make sure you follow my blog, my instagram, or my Facebook page to be sure to take part in the SVG Freebie later this week.  

Challenges I have entered this in:
