WOW! Autumn has definitely arrived here in the UK, we have really strong winds and lots of rain clouds lurking! I know I'm a bit strange but I love days like this! I do love the sun but when it's wet and dreary I feel cosy and safe at home. Autumn is my fave season and I love to see the leaves change colour and all the changing plant life. I think it's my fave time for making cards too as the colours are so rich and vibrant. My card has an Autumnal theme that's for sure and I even fetched some leaves in from the garden to add to the effect in my photo. They were very wet and soggy so do you know what I did? I put them in the tumble drier for a few minutes, rofl!! The things we do heh?
I'm entering my card into this weeks Stamp Something Challenge where the theme is Animals and I've used one of Mo's fantastic creations available to buy here at Digital Pencil Too. Do you like my handmade pumpkin? I'm really pleased with how it turned out but I can't take the credit for the initial idea because I saw it here at Scrap Bitz, wowzers what a talented lady Suzanne is, you MUST visit!!! She used Nestie Ovals to create her pumpkin but I don't have the plain ones so I made my own template by drawing an oval in Word and printing it onto some card. The papers are from Basic Grey's Mellow range and the sentiment has been created using one of the See D's Alphabet stamp sets. I've layered and glazed the bat mask on my image which has thankfully come out well on the piccie. Do you know after I made this card, every time I looked at it those little eyes were following me around the room....... SPOOKY!
This card is the second of three that I'm making in response to a design team call for a new range of stamps at The Pixie Cottage and I will be giving you further details tomorrow.
I have a couple of awards to add to this post but I will put them on later as I'm at work and need to crack on.......... catch you later folks and thanks so much for stopping by today ;o)
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
