Autumn Cards

A couple of new makes to share with you, and we also made these yesterday at the workshop. Yesterday was a great day, we had loads of fun and a warm welcome for our new crafters, I think you girls thought we were a mad bunch, must have been something in the air yesterday.

So there was lots of nattering and at one point my cheeks ached from laughing, and we still did really well having finished all 6 projects without rushing for the door (this normally happens cos there is never enough time in the day is there when you're crafting?!) So thanks ladies, you worked really hard and am impressed at how easily all the treat bags came together.

I will post those separately when I can get a decent picture, but in the meantime, here are the last of this years' autumn cards.

The first is a just rite stamps sunflower card in black, white and dark cream / mustard yellow colours and the sunflower is stamped three times and layered, removing petals each time another layer is added. The embossing was done using two different cuttlebug folders, and the punch is a fiskars one called apron lace.

Finally added some dew drops coloured with alcohol inks and made with a glue gun.

The second card is one using a house mouse stamp called Autumn Cruise. I fell in love with this stamp when I saw it its sooo cute. We learned a new technique with nestabilities with this one, by using only part of the nestability die in the bug, you can create your own shapes or borders - for this one we used labels four, the largest die and only die cut the ends of the rectangle shaped layers in dark cream, dark red and ivory.

The sentiment is computer generated and the leaves are die cut from cuttlebug leaves cutting dies and then embossed with a cuttlebug folder, the same folder used on the sunflower card. The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs, the set is called Just Plaid and can be purchased HERE.

Will pop back later with the other Christmas card we made and the Halloween ones.
