Autumn ...

Evening all ... I hope your weekend has been enjoyable ... I've been busy but found time to create some cards ... this is the first I would like to share with you ...

This week's challenge at "Less is More" is a colour challenge - 'Hot and Spicy'.  As you can see I went for the Autumnal colours.  I began by creating a panel using a stylised leaf stamp to create flowers and then die cut the bubbles from the panel.  Unfortunately I didn't think to take a photograph of the panel before I cut it up ... but this is the panel with the bit missing!!

I'm now wishing that I had tried a different design but there is enough of the panel left to create another card so I might just try something different!!!  I could be back later!

I used:
UNIKO Fun flowers stamp set (just one of the leaves)
Distress Inks - ripe persimmon, abandoned coral, festive berries, spiced marmalade, carved pumpkin and candied apple.
Sizzix - Bright Bubbles die

I'm entering these challenges:

Stamping Sensations - October challenge - Autumn Glory



  1. WOW! That design is outstanding Elaine - you must have so much patience piecing the final card together like that - but what a stunner it is. Great use of the colours and the vellum is a fab touch too. So glad you have enough of the panel left to make another card - will look forward to spotting that one on Instagram. Thanks for sharing this one with us at Less is More xx

  2. What a great way to use this circle die...just perfect. Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  3. Fantastic job with the inlaid diecut technique, Elaine. Beautiful design and love that vellum sentiment strip. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More.

  4. This is gorgeous, Elaine! Love the autumn colours and the use of the vellum for the sentiment. Thank you for sharing it with us at Stamping Sensations.


  5. I love the effect of the bubbles die cut and the colours you have used.

  6. Fab Autumn creation, thanks for joining Stamping Sensations, good luck.
    Happy crafting
