Falling for Autumn

cypdt16thseptBarry16thsept 001

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Autumn/Fall Colours.We have the fabulous Stamp Fairy as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I couldn’t resist making 2 cards with the adorable  Molly Throughout the Year September and Barry Throughout the Year 9 by Stamp Fairy .They’ve both been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.The papers on the Molly one are actually supposed to be Summer ones but they say Autumn more to me – especially when teamed with the orange and brown card stock 😉 The embellishment is made up of a wooden flower coloured with Copics,a gem added to the centre,then a few of the leftovers from the border die tucked under the edges.So on to Barry 🙂 I coloured him in a dotty fashion to create a little fuzziness and decided to display him on a shaped easel card (not made one in a while).I’ve inked around the edges to give more depth to the whole card.Some texture has been added with some paper raffia and die cut cork leaves.I’m always on the lookout for interesting stuff to bring dimension to my cards – and then never use it!!So I took the opportunity this time.I’ve used a button as the stopper and the sentiment is a freebie from Netty’s Cards.I love making cards in Autumn colours and luckily I get the chance as 3 of my 4 children have Autumn Birthdays!The top card is for my DD2 and the bottom one is for my DS2 🙂

    Wow, Lisa, your cards are GORGEOUS. I love your autumnal colours, and your colouring is just perfect. I love that you’ve used a Barry bear and a Molly on your designs. And you’ve used one of my sentiments too. I’m so proud to see it on your fab card. I’m glad you’ve made use of it. Thanks so much.

    One theme, two very different Autumnal cards, both absolutely gorgeous Lisa. The papers and all those intricate layers on the Miss Molly card are beautiful and are so effective with the dark brown and orange mats, I love the shape of your easel card for Barry and the ‘dotty’ backing paper. Using a round button as the stop ties in with the paper so well and I love those cork leaves and raffia. I feel very spoilt seeing two of your wonderful works at art together Lisa. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team).
