PKS challenge #30

Hello crafty friends!!
My goodness there's a FABULOUS sneaky peak happening as we speak over at My Creative Time!! A MUST see!!
Head on over HERE
You'll LOVE what you see all week!

So I was inspired by all of the talent that I've seen this wknd and today! I created a card for PKS challenge #30 Just cards POPPED UP! Now I must tell you, I have not yet done a pop up card. This was my very first attempt. I think it came out pretty good. Hoping to get better.
Here are details for the challenge:

I used PKS 647 Faceless Fall Fun for the pumpkins, fence & leaves
MCT All Around halloween for the sentiment
colored with my Tim Holtz distress markers
inked the edges with TH distress ink pads
I also used my acrylic block to mix the colors from TH ink pads, spritz with a bit of water and stamped the leaves. They came out so cool! I dont know that you can see the complete detail of all the colors, but I liked it. THEN, my favorite part, I used Yankee Candle Autumn wreath hand sanitizer to add a scent to the card. I squeezed a little on my finger and dabbed it around the card! LOVE IT! I did see it on a you tube video a looong time ago, wish I could remember where so I can give her credit. Nonetheless, awesome idea!! Because it's alcohol based, it didnt leave little spots anywhere! completely dried!!

ok now here is my pop up part. I had to keep it simple as this IS my very first pop up.

This next card is just for fun! I LOVE LOVE the august release from PKS!! I made a tag from the little apple, colored Mrs. Peach with my copics and paper pieced her dress.
The accessories are colored and paper pieced. This was so fun to play with!!  Happy 1st day of school!

 Thank you so much for visiting!
