These colours are very Autumn to me so I couldn't resist and pulled out a new set coming out very very soon.






These cards are always the hard ones to make if they are along the sympathy lines.
It could also be given to someone who has just had surgery or not feeling the best.

I made it into a card which folded into the centre on the front and had the leaves so they overlapped the opposite panel for a point of difference..
  • Stamps: Colorful Seasons
  • Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Early Espresso
  • Card: Very Vanilla, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede and Early Espresso
  • Tools: Seasonal Layers with the bigshot
  • Embelishments: Dimensionals & Burlap Ribbon

My Gosh these colours are gorgeous, but then again all the colours each fortnight have been amazing!

I had a totally different idea in my head to what I actually made.
Here it is anyway.


One of the families from school is leaving this week which is super sad as their son has been in my daughters class for the past 2 and a bit years.
I made this card and box (with a little gift) for his mum.



I am sure she loved it. They will be dearly missed.

The flower has been stamped off 2 times with the base layer, 1 with the next layer and the top outline layer was directly stamped.


  • Stamps: Penned & Painted
  • Card: Night of Navy, Pool Party and Whisper White
  • Ink: Calypso Coral and Night of Navy
  • Tools: Envelope Punch Board and Layering Circles framelits with the bigshot
  • Embelishments: Gold Metallic Foil Doilies, white Lace Doily, Dimensionals, gold wink of stella and Gold Ribbon from Saleabration
