Autumn Wreath

 Lot's of fun with Autumn colours, water colouring, dies, stamps
and an embossing folder.....

Meet today's card......

I Started with die cutting the Hanging Florals from Pink Fresh
in gold metallic, dry embossed the centre and layered up from there
I used the wonderful Lindy Magical powders, activated with water
and cuts lots of leaves and a few acorns .....
I used several different die cuts including, Sizzix, Poppystamps
and a pretty Pink Fresh stamp and die set.
I also stamped and heat embossed in gold the flower wreath.
Finishing off with a tiny sentiment and gloss over those acorns ....

Thanks for finding time to stop by, I really appreciate it.

Birthday Boy

Today's card was inspired by the colour challenge over at Color Throwdown.
Although the photo inspiration had flowers on it I thought the colours
would lend themselves to a masculine 16th Birthday card.......
The colours are RED, PURPLE and ORANGE......

You can see a little more of the detailing, crackle and bling on this photo.

I used a mix of gold and purple embossing powders,
which played nicely together on the die cut photo film frame,
the stamping/embossing on the left and the die cut number 1.

I so enjoyed making the mixed media card, using stencilling, stamping, die cutting
and heat embossing and loved the colour combination from the challenge.

Monochromatic Happy Birthday

 Thankyou so much for all my kind and friendly comments on my last post,
which I really appreciated.

Today's card is mixed media and Monochromatic.....

The leaves have been stamped and half heat embossed with shimmer.
The die cut flower has been heat embossed with lots of UTEE on my pancake maker
for constant heat and swirled around with a cocktail stick whilst still molten.

I finished off with heat embossing one edge of the card,
stamping the Happy Birthday sentiments
and adding the thin die cut circle.
I had so much fun making this card and it was sent to one very special lady.
