Pinecone Bundle

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

I cut and coloured the Memory Box Smooth Pinecones and Antique Pine label dies. I snipped off the label section of the die so that I had two separate pine branches. I adhered a couple of patterned paper strips to my card base before arranging my die cuts on top. Finally I added a Mama Elephant sentiment and a few pearls.

Golden pumpkins

Hello everyone!

First up today I’m playing along with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge which has a combo of brown, rust, gold and blue.

I’ve been wanting to ink up and colour the beautiful Autumn Vibes clings stamp by Penny Black (40-786) for a while now and I thought this week’s combo would be perfect for the stamp. I coloured the image with my Twinkling H2O paints, but didn’t like how my gold paint looked… So, I turned to some glitzy golden paper, stamped and cut out the pumpkins and did some paper piecing! the sentiment is from Penny Black’s Pumpkin Stack mini set (30-855).

Autumn Happiness Wreath

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the challenge at the Four Seasons challenge using Penny Black products.

I absolutely love the new Golden cling stamp (40-782) and was so excited to ink it up. I haven’t been doing much stamping and colouring recently and I really enjoyed using my beloved Twinkling H2O paints again! Can you see the shimmer in the second photo? So difficult to photograph!

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from the Autumn is Calling set (30-863) and also softly sponged some distress ink to the background to create a layered effect without adding too many physical layers.

Halloween |Hello

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

It took me ages to work out a design I felt happy with! In the end, I chose a favourite Halloween set – Fab-boo-lous Friends by My Favourite Things. I paired it with a fence dienamics die and a sentiment from a new MFT sentiment set.

Autumn Tree-heart

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge¬† which has a lovely autumnal combo of red, purple and orange.

For my take I used very old and very new products by Penny Black. The Tree-heart stamp (40-505) is from 2012 – I love that it hasn’t been retired! It’s always been one of my favourite trees to colour! I paired it with a sentiment from the Autumn is Calling stamp set (30-863) which has only just been released!

Thanks for stopping by!
