For my card I used A Little Treat as my stamp set. I stamped my chef, her plate, and the cake on X-Press It blending card, and then colored it with my Copics. She was then layered with Pink Lemonade, Blu Raspberry, and Wild Cherry cardstock from MFT. My paper is from the Crate Paper Paper Hearts line. I used Satin Edged Wide Grosgrain in Red from the Ribbon Carousel, and some Blossom Twine from MFT.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to head to the TSG blog to see my teammates GORGEOUS work!! I can't wait to see what you all do with this week's challenges!!

For my first card, I used the new Primitive Pumpkins set. It is more of a Halloween set, but I decided I wanted to do something a little different with it, and go for Fall. I cut the pumpkins out of some old SU DP, and then added them to a Sweet Tooth oval cut out with my Oval Stax Die-namics. I layered it with the Oval Decorative Doily Die-namics in Hot Fudge.  I did a little sponging, but not much, with some Cocoa ink. My swirls are the new Large Fancy Flourish Die-namics in Sage Shadow(SU). For my base I used Hot Fudge, Sage Shadow, and Orange Fizz. My ribbon is Orange Fizz grosgrain, and I used some of the yummy Hemp Twine from MFT, along with a Hot Fudge button. The border I used was cut with the Faux Crochet Border Die-namics. To finish, I used the new High Rise Alphabet Lowercase Die-namics.

For the inside, I used pieces of the swirl, and a sentiment from the Inspired by the Front Porch-Fall set.

For my second card, I used the new Fairy Dust set. She was stamped on X-Press It blending card, and some Basic Grey Eerie DP. I paper pieced her wings and dress, and colored the rest of her with my Copics. She was then layered with Sour Apple, Grape Jelly, and Black Licorice. My background was created with the new Jumbo Fishtail Banner Die-namics, and the Large Fancy Flourish Die-namics. I tied a bow with Black Licorice grosgrain, which I attached one of the new Halloween Charm Die-namics and some Honeydew Twine. My sentiment is from the Primitive Pumpkins set, and was stamped on a strip from the Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

For the inside, I used another sentiment from the Primitive Pumpkins set, and some more of the Basic Grey paper.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head to Kim's Blog to see a list of all the other stampers that are showing Teasers today!
