Nicecrane and Prickly Pear Monday



Morning Peeps, it's Monday which means my weekly share of my DT piece for Prickly Pear and this week I've gone very Autumnal using the gorgeous leaf and matching dies. 

I am also sharing a little Nicecrane project which you will find further down this post.

For the leaves on the card I sprayed a piece of Centura pearl on the reverse side with Dylusions, then cut out the leaves and acorns with the dies and over stamped with the matching stamps from the clear leaf set, these two sets are so useful I can can see will be used over and again. The lovely Keats poem is computer generated and I just love this Embossalicious leaf embossing folder which is A4 in size making it so useful for the base card which I shaded with Pan Pastels. I would like to enter this into:

Pan Pastels - Falling leaves
Lacy Sunshine - Fall colours
Quirky craft - Favourite things - Dylusions and Pan Pastels


Now the pretty little box I made using these adorable new Peter Rabbit images from Ignacio at Nicecrane, Designs they fir the circle Nesties perfectly and s soon as I saw them visualised a gift box.

I created the box and lid using my scoreboard and it measures 11cm sqaure x 13cm deep........I made it a little deeper to allow for the lid. I then covered it with some soft blue DP to carry the colour from the images and matter the circles onto some brown bazzil which I also used to make a punched border round the bottom. The lid was simple decorated with some ready made flowers and an organzie bow. I would like to enter this for:

You will find a direct link to this and other similar image sheet on the thumbnail link at the bottom, but please note that I understand from Igancio that copyright prevents the onward sale of cards using these particular images in the UK, but fine throughout the rest of the world.

Hope you all have a good Monday and as always my thanks for your kind visits and comments.

  17. Beautiful makes, I so love the Autumn tones!

    Great wreath and embossing on the first, and Beatrix Potter stories and illustrations are true favourites of mine since a very young age... I'm not ashamed to admit I still have my book sets from when I was a child stored away, because the images and stories are just so magical and unique!

    cute, great box you made using them xoxo

  38. Oh my - you will think I have been copying you Brenda, lol, I sat and stamped and coloured a load of leaves last night which I then cut out. I have an idea to make an autumnal wreath - I promise you this is the first time I've popped over since Saturday so hadn't seen your leaf creation yet.

    Both are stunning, I love the embossed background on your autumn leaves and the box with Peter Rabbit is stunning. Hope you are feeling a little better xx
