Harvest Time & Pumpkins ;)

I always adore the Autumn & harvest time. The colors are so beautiful right now and today we went to a cute pumpkin patch to get some pumpkins, picked some of our own apples when we came home, and now it's time to make this autumns' first apple pie, I think ;)

First up some very Clean & Simple cards - made with Ali Edward stamps from Technique Tuesday. I love her handwriting and the very clean look of these small cards, they would go perfectly with a gift from your garden to a friend or neighbor - huh!? Very quick and very simple to make.

Here are some of the pumpkins we brought home...  (needs to be arranged later)

My favourite is this green one! Just love it!!

The 2 small pumpkins on the table I got from my sister - along with some homemade jam. Now I need to label my pickled beetroot and Jan's Queen Jam (made with blueberry & raspberry) :-)

And here are some of our apples  - picked today. Don't they just look lovely ! ?

Have a great Sunday! And thanks for stopping by!

take it easy

I made this fun little card using the cute "Dad's Day" set from Lawn Fawn. I made the chair looking very cosy and comfy by stamping over a white stamped background using the Leaf and Flower Background from Hero Arts. This is leaving a nice pattern on the chair!

Could be used as a gift card for a man loving his old comfy chair :-)  I punched a half circle and added a flat masculine looking embellishment - tones down that bow, don't you think? ;)

Btw, Stay tuned for a Lawnscaping Blop Hop on October, 5th.
I am sure we are all in for an inspirational treat with the Fall Themed hop!
I am looking very much forward to it!

Giant Fall Manilla Tag

A friend of mine gave me some HUGE manilla tags and I must admit this is the first time I have used them. I tell you - they are huge!  8 x 4,5" !

I used the overthetop cute set from My Favourite Things Primitive Pumpkins to stamp the backgrounds and the pumpkins with the coordinating dies.

Yummy Hero Arts Shadow Inks was used - love these colors so much! (Soft Orange, Cup o´Joe & Soft Olive)! Btw, Jan brought the yummy chanterelles home from Germany yesterday - we'll cook these for dinner tonight! Yum!!

And here is the tag hanging from my cabinet !

I love Fall and soon I will be on the hunt for some real pumpkins!! Yay!

Have a great weekend!

Hero Arts Challenge - Orange

I am back with a CAS card for this months Hero Arts Challenge ;)  It has really been too long!

I stamped the cat with versamark ink first and then I white embossed it. I wanted a clean and crisp edge so I  masked off both the cat and the "hill" using some masking paper.
Finally I inked the background with the new Orange Soda ink. The stamped sentiment is from the Live Life set - pulls in the orange in a very grafical way, which I kind of like!

I mounted the piece on a Mandarin layering paper (inside out).


Thanks for stopping by - have a great Sunday!
