It seems like these pumpkins are addictive, I cannot stop stamping them!

I have used Multi-step stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps. These pumpkins look so real and they are very easy to stamps.

The grid background is from Walzingmouse Stamps, I really love Claire's designs and this background set is very useful.

In the next card, I used the same focal images but I changed the background.

For the background I used "weathered wood" from Cornish Heritage Farm and Text-style from Papertrey.


Stamps: Multi-step pumpkins (Kitchen Sink Stamps), Off Beat Backgrounds (Walzingmouse Stamps) , Text-style (Papertrey), Weathered Wood (Cornish Heritage Farm)

Ink: Memento, Distress Inks

Accessories: Nestabilities, ribbon, dimensional dots

Autumn leaves - Part 2

I have another card with autumn leaves. Using these warm autumn colours is therapeutic.

Autumn leaves

I love autumn leaves. Here, almost all the trees have beautiful red/yellow leaves!

I have made another card with a vintage look (I love Distress Inks!!!).

I sprayed Glimmer Mist on the acorns but it is difficult to show it well in the picture.

I coloured the acorns with Copic marker (E35, E37, YG91, YG95).


Stamps: 3-step squirrel, the acorns are from "1st anniversary set - a year of thanks" (Kitchen Sink Stamps), text-style (Papertrey), weathered wood backgrounder (Cornish Heritage Farms)

Ink: Distress Inks, Palette , Memento

Accessories: ribbon, nestabilities (scalopped circles), Fiskars corner punch (Lace)


I cannot stop stamping these beautiful berries from Kitchen Sink Stamps!

I am using Distress Inks a lot, so I decided to create a vintage look.


Stamps: Multi-step berries (Kitchen Sink Stamps), Text-style (Papertrey)

Inks: Distress Ink (Antique Linen, Old paper), the berries have been stamped with Memento inks.

Accessories: Nestabilities (label 8 and curved rectangles), peel off stickers, satin ribbon, pearlised cardstock.

I have made a card for the challenge issued by Papertrey. The challenge was to be inspired by Mexico and its colours!

Mexico reminds me of a baby sea turtle I released in the sea and bright colours.

I rarely use bright green and blue in my cards, so I wanted to challenge myself.

Ink: Cote D'Azure, Chartreause (Palette), Bamboo Leaves, Pear Tart, Rhubarb stalk, rich cocoa (Memento)
