Welcome to the BBTB2 Blog Hop! If you have arrived from Lori's Blog, you're on the right track. If not, you might want to start at BBTB2 so you don't miss a thing. I'm hosting the challenge this week and chose the wheelbarrow from Walk In My Garden. Although it's an oldie, it's still one of my faves. I've welded the shadow of the wheelbarrow to a big full moon from George and pumpkins from Holiday Cakes. The sentiment is from Holiday Cakes as well.
Yes, it's a shaped front card. You know that's my favorite kind to make. I've re sized the rounded rectangle from George for the back. The background DP is from Memory Box. I've embossed the wheelbarrow with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder and the full moon with Polka Dots.
In some cases, I've cut the image more than once and done some trimming to add more layers, like the middle pumpkin and the green vines. The wheelbarrow was also cut in several colors and hand trimmed to add more detail to the cut.
Isn't this jack-o-lantern a hoot? I stickled the yellow layers of the pumpkins so they looked like they were lit from within, and embossed several with Swiss Dots.
Here's the dimension shot. I couldn't resist adding some non-Cricut embellies, like the leaves and Rain Dot bats. I sprinkled in a few adhesive beads, as well. Now hop on over to sweet Krista's Blog but before you do, please leave a comment for a chance to win a $40.00 gift certificate to Custom Crops. They have a Spooktacular BooTique, chock full of Halloween goodies, as well as new Holiday items and plenty of Tim Holtz, so be sure to start a wish list in case you're the winner! I'll be drawing the name (with any luck, LOL) on Saturday, so be sure to check back because I won't be hunting you down. Now remember, you have two weeks to complete each challenge and we'd like to see a "new" project and please link back to BBTB2 so others can join in the fun. If you don't have the cartridge, you may use a similar cut. In this case, I'm not sure there are any other wheelbarrows, so a wagon would be a fine substitute.
