November Leaves

Hello! I am back! Happy together with my hubby in our cosy little apartment.  If I can call this week by the colour I would call it grey :0) Soggy, rainy weather is upon us! That makes me more crafty and creative! Today I would like to share my first Poppy Stamps project with you. 
I love their fabulous dies. 
For more beautiful inspiration visit Poppy Stamps Blog.

This card was super easy to make with Poppystamps Thank You Background die. I've just run my blue card blank through cuttlebug machine, fixed cream cardstock panel from other side, round the corners and ink around.

Then I die cut maple leaves from assorted brown and yellow cardstock. Nested them to create a leaf bunch. Sprayed a bit of brown ink over.

Wrapped around dark velvet and cream ribbons, tied a nice big bow and embellished with white button.

Thank you for stopping by! Hope that you have nice and cosy Thursday too!

November Colours

Can you believe that November's already here? Cold, dark and long evenings knocking on the door. Are you ready? Christmas fever started! :0) 
Well, as it is the first Friday of the month, it's back to our year long monthly Colour Theme over the Daring Cardmakers. I love the soft and metallic November colour mix. 

I trimmed panel from gold cardstock, stamped and heat embossed large snowflakes to soft winter pattern, matt with pink cardstock. 

Wrapped with cream satin ribbon around the panels and adhere to the card blank.
Cut out white panel round the edges and made some stitching. 

Stamped and heat embossed smaller snowflakes on, then stamped sentiment 'Merry Christmas' with black ink. Fixed glitter Christmas bauble. Tied the bows and finished with pink button.

Have a lovely Friday! See you soon!

Forever in Our Hearts

Hello my dearest friends. I am off to work today, but before I go I have a card to share with you.
I visited my parents and family last week. We had really great time together. Traditionally at the end of October we remember all our relatives who are not longer with us. Lighting the candles and pray for the blessings for our  dearest souls at the cemetery. We are not celebrating Halloween in my country as much as here in UK and I am glad because I'm not fond of spooky things and costumes :0) 

My card is made of all scraps found on my craft table after one week. Well, I have tendency to hoard all tiny bits with thoughts to use it later :0)  Are you same?

I creased and folded craft cardstock to create a cardblank. Stamped chevron stamp with Versa Magic to create structure background. Took white acrylic paint and painted all around the edges for shabby look. 
Started layering all the scrap dies, tags and die cuts. Using some mounting pads for dimension.
Then embellished with pink ribbon, assorted buttons and adhesive pearl heart. 


Hope that you have nice afternoon!

Autumn Bliss

Hello. It's me again! We had very windy yesterday here. Fallen trees and strong winds from ex hurricane Gonzalo have caused travel problems road closures, train delays and flight cancellations. It although turned much cooler. I think I'm going to take out our winter clothes from top shelves. Especially our warm boots for cozy home feet :0)  Inspired by the dancing leaves outside I created another autumn card to share with you. 

Have a nice and blessed autumn morning!
