Autumn Leaves

Hello everyone,

It feels like ages since I last used one of my all time favourite Penny Black stamps on a card. There is a lot of challenges in blogland about autumn, so I decided to use this Penny Black stamp “Bunny Friends”. I can image how the little bunnies in real life can play around in all the falling leaves, showcasing all the magnificent colours of autumn. Although it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere I love working with autumn colours because of the blending of these colours. One can create unbelievable rich and warm tones in a card creation. I really enjoyed colouring the autumn leaves with my red, brown and orange Twinkling H2O’s.

I entered my card for the following challenges:

I used the following to create the card:

  • Penny Black stamp 1927K  “Bunny Friends”
  • Great Impressions (South Africa) stamp B588 “Oak Leaf”
  • White and terracotta cardstock
  • Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess Collection designer paper
  • Gold tread
  • Heart charm
  • Martha Stewart punch “Arch Lattice”
  • Twinkling H2O for colouring
  • Krylon gold leafing pen

Have a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Greeting from South Africa,

Amelia

    Amelia, your card is so beautiful. With the bunnies, it is also cute. I love the dangling gold heart. I can see you using this same design and elements and changing the bunnies for maybe flowers for birthday or sympathy. A gorgeous design and crafting.

    Delightful card Amelia! Love the colours. We, in the southern hemisphere don’t celebrate the seasons as our northern couterparts do and that is such a pity! The rich colours of autumn, as you have captured in this cute card, are so beautiful.
