Water-Coloured Autumn Leaves Card with Blended Seasons

There’s only two more days to get your hands on the Blended Seasons bundle so I’m back today with another idea for you.

I’ve used the falling leaves stamp and stamped over watercolour paper in Stazon and then coloured with Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Garden Green watercolour pencils, which all belong to assortment 2. I coloured the leaves really roughly to try and highlight the affects of the turning leaves and I think the end result is quite good….if you don’t look too closely.

To add some texture I added some strips of ribbon to the side of my greetings panel. I used a small piece of the new Braided Linen Trim and I wanted something which would add a bit more Cajun Craze to the card. We don’t carry anything like this so I made my own using the Polka Dot Ribbon and the Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends marker, which adds exactly what I wanted to the card.

Hope you’ve enjoyed todays project and remember order these products now before they’re gone forever.

Thinking of You Card with Autumnal Stripes

To I’m stepping into autumn territory with this autumn themed thinking of you card.  It uses products from the Nature’s Poem Suite which is perfect for this time of year when summer is drawing to a close. Full of rich shades the Nature’s Poem DSP is my favourite autumn themed papers Stampin’ Up! have produced, I love the combination of browns, purples, dark greens highlighted with mint and grapefruit. This stripe paper is probably my least favourite in the pack so today I’ve challenged myself to use it.

For the focal point of my card I used the lovely tree slice stamp from Rooted in Nature and then after fussy cutting it out I embossed the greeting in copper.

Across the middle of the card I added a length of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle  anda length of the Grapefruit grove 1/8″ Mini Grosgrain Ribbon as I wanted to bring out the Grapefruit colour. To finish the card I added three of the Grapefruit Grove Faceted Dots, which I love.
