Autumn

Craft packages ordered =0, craft packages received =0

So far, in my part of the UK, the threatened violent storms haven’t yet arrived. However, if you live in the south of the country I hope you are keeping safe and dry.

Phew – that was some crafty weekend! First there was the  Gecko Galz Blog Hop and, if you took part, you should now be in possession of some fabulous collage sheets plus have the chance to win some other amazing prizes. Saturday was all about the matchbook notebooks and yesterday I squeezed in two posts. If you haven’t been over to Anything But A Card please do take a look and come and share your miniature projects with me. Good job Sunday had an extra hour available!

Monday marks the start of a new theme over at Crafty Boots and Zoe has chosen the theme of Autumn.

I’ve used some more of those fabulous designer papers from Bo Bunny together with cardstock in autumnal colours. When I was at the craft show in Harrogate a few weeks ago I picked up the cutest little stamp set and have used several of these stamps on this card. I’ve stamped the images directly onto the inchies. Then I’ve stamped them again, this time onto white card, coloured them, cute them out and then applies over the original. This means you get all the details that are too small to cut out but can get the colour you want too.

In addition to the stamped images I used some punched leaves, a little flower and then cut out an apple and a pumpkin from the Bo Bunny papers.

I added some autumnal branches and a little acorn charm to the pumpkin.

The ribbon and lace are from Really Reasonable ribbon.

Be sure to buzz over to the Crafty Boots Challenge blog and take a look at what the rest of the design team have been up to. We’d love to see your autumn themed projects.

I’d also like to show you my Halloween gift bags that I made using images from The Graphics Fairy. I was short on time so layered up some of my favourite Graphics Fairy Halloween images, together with the freebie Halloween paper from The Gecko Galz, to create a digital collage which I then printed. I stamped the word “boo” on to orange card and added this separately (between you and me this covers up the claws from the owl that was originally sitting on the pumpkin!) What you can’t quite see in the photograph is the sparkly spider that I applied over the one in the image.

  1. Good morning, I am feeling like the morning after the night before today – no, I have not been drinking but I got very little sleep last night during the storm.

    Your inchie card is amazing, I had not realised before reading your post that your card as made from a collection of 9 inchies, that is a lot of work. But the results are so worth all that effort, your card looks awesome.

    PS I love the Trick or Treat bags, they are brill!

    • Thank you. I have a square punch that makes inchie making a little less painful than it used to be however, I think I also need an inch and a quarter punch so I can layer them! I dipped out of that for this card. xx

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
