Quick... before it's winter!

Just a quick share tonight as I made this autumanl feeling card last week and realised it'll soon be too wintery to share it! We have had an absolutely stunning Autumn here in Devon though. A true display of Autumns finest; in the trees, the skies and the temperatures!

The main image stamp is from Penny Black and the sentiment is Lawn Fawn. I mounted on some gold vellum I had and inked with distress inks. Hope you like it!

Autumn glow

Yesterday my first ever craft barn dt post went live:) I thought I would share the project here too although you can see the full tutorial on their website here.

 This scene was stamped using card-io pleasant pastures on to tissue paper with a distress ink background.
I affixed it to a jam jar using watered down PVA.
And added a few finishing touches to create an autumnal lantern.

I'd like to enter this project in to the autumn challenges at Stamping sensations and Penny black and more.

It's beginning to look a bit like Autumn...

Well hello there!

I'm conscious that the blog has been rather quiet recently, but I have been preparing a whole host of projects with my newly appointed craft barn design team member hat on, so watch this space!!

For now, I wanted to share a little autumnal make with you. This is the first autumn that I have owned a dog and I am so grateful that it gets me out in the woods every day so I can truly see the season changing. This year seems to be a particularly good one for mushrooms so if you're out and about, keep your eyes peeled!

This card is made with some paper from my stash, a bit of gold sheen vellum and of course a lovely penny black hedgie stamp coloured with promarkers. I used sizzix autumn gatherings die to cut the leaves out of gold paper and vellum and stuck them down with quickie glue. I have found it's a really good glue on vellum as it doesn't show through.

Take care and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!
