Autumnal Painted Harvest Card

Today I’ve beenat my daugthers harvest assembly and they were singing the song “Autumn Days” which reminded me of the Painted Harvest stamps set, so i rushed home, pulled it out and here’s what I created.

For the sunflowers I used a base layer of So Saffron and then stamped over with two layers of Pumpkin Pie to make them exra bright and sunny. The middles are Soft Suede with dots of Early Espresso. I added a little Granny Apple Green on my stamped panel simply because I wanted to use the Textured Weave Ribbon in the same colour.

I ran the stamped panel through the Subtle 3D Embossing folder at add a little textue and then mounted this on a matt of Soft Suede and then a matt of Granny Apple Green.

I finished the card off with a greeting stamped over a small Stitched Oval.

Holly Jolly Santa Card

Who doesn’t love Santa on a Christmas card? I do anyway and what better one than this one from the Holly Jolly Christmas bundle. Such a lovable character which was a delight to colour.

Not the neatest colouring I’ll admit to but I still love him, next time he’ll be coloured beautifully!

A little background paper from the Wrapped in the Plaid makes a great background and the gold stripes in it are brought out with the stamped greeting in Golden Glitz Delicata ink.

A few gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Medley finish the card off.

The Holly Jolly Christmas bundle is part of the Night Before Christmas Suite, a very versatile suite featuring all kinds of Christmas images including: trees, presents, cocoa, reindeers, candy canes, baubles and of course Santa himself!

Thinking of You Christmas Penguin Card

Todays card features the gorgoues Feels Like Frost Speciality Designer Paper which here in Europe has definitly been one of the most popular products of the Autmn/Winter catalogue. I can totally see why this paper pack is so stunning with wintery scenes on one side of each sheet and silver foiled patterns on the other making it suitable for so much more than Christmas. It’s currently in stock as I type this so if you want some grab it as I’m sure it’ll be on backorder again within days.

I’ve used the Itty Bitty Christmas  stamp set for my greeting and paired that with one of the penguins from Playful Penguins. I did have a Seaside Spray scarf cut out for him but it disappeared off my desk before I had chance to stick it down, so imagine it there if you like.

If you’ve managed to get hold of the Feels Like Frost paper then I’d love to know what you’ve created with it.

Pretty Peacock Leaf Bouquet Card

I love the Come to Gather Suite of products as soon as I saw them its definitely my favourite Autumn themed suite for many years, mainly because the papers include Pretty Peacock. I think this is a bold choice for an autumnal themed collection but it really works with the Cajun Crze, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron.

I knew as soon as I got these product home I’d create a card which featured Pretty Peacock Foil die cut leaves and these turned out even more gorgeous than I expected. To create some more interest I cut some more leaves in Pretty Peacock cardstock. A little tip I’ve picked up from other demonstrators if you spray the card before you die cut the leaves you will get a two-tone effect, no idea why this work but Ilove them.

For some additional texture to my leafy arrangement I added some of the foiliage from the Frosted Frames dies in Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake. These are all secrured using glue dots as I didn’t want to move my leaves after I’d got the arrangement how I like.

The “Wishing You Well” greeting makes this card suitable for many occasions or to simply just send to someone to say “Hi” which is exactly what I’m going to do as this week is World Card Sending week. Why don’t you join in and send some random cards yourself.

I’m sharing another project today made with the Most Wonderful Time, showing how just a piece of Designer Paper, a greeting and a few stickers can make a gorgeous card.

Christmas Tree Reindeer Card (1)

I love the new Delicata inks they stamp beautifully and leave a gorgeous shimmer. I used a blender pen to grab some ink and coloured the reindeer antlers to add a little more gold to the card.

O Christmas Tree Card with the Most Wonderful Time Medley

I’ve just recieved the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley which I think is a great product if you want a collection of coordinating products all in one box. Unlike our project kits these boxes of goodness come with no instructions so the creating is limitless.

Here’s the first card I made, I just has to use that gorgeous Christmas tree stamp and stamp in the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink to make it shimmer.

I decorated the tree with one of the gold stars from the medley and added some of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels as tree ornaments.

I love all the gold foiled paper in this medley, this striped one is probably my favourite as I can see myself using it all year round, if I have any left that is.

A little gold foil and some of the new Gold Shimmer Ribbon from the Christmastime Is Here Suite available to demonstrators now, finish off the card.

I’ve had loads of fun making cards with this this product medley, I;ll share some more soon.
