Glowing Autumn and a Snippet



Morning Peeps, time for our mid month reminder at Penny Black and More challenge where our Autumnal Colours theme is in full swing, if you have not joined in yet there is still  plenty of time as it runs until 28th of this month, there are lots of great prizes to be won.

My card has a Dylusion background, what I always love about Dylusions is that you never know quite what you will end up with and I was very pleased with the lovely glow this one gives. When dry I stamped with the lovely Penny Black Autumn Dance, a piece of corrugates with some Frantage added, a bow and some more leaves using Penny Black Filigree Foliage.

Thought I had better also share one of two cards from this weeks Tattered Lace Create and Craft Pick of the Week, I am a bit late as it started on Friday and a good number of the stamps are already sold out.

Using Swirly Over the Edge Header, Rose Bunch Embossing Folder and Happy Birthday

Using Flourish Header

Using Lacy Floral Border and Essential Ovals

Using Flourish Header, Double side Stepper and sections of  Decorative Lattice

I would like to enter this one into this weeks Snippet Playground, the DP's are some really old Nitwits ones which were A4 sheets, not sure they even make them like that any more, but have been hanging around in the 'pink drawer' for what seems like forever. None of the pieces were large enough to cut the main layer in one piece so the TL flourish covers the join very nicely.

A very simple design, Over the Edge Header again and Essential Decorative Lattice - and this is the right way up, there seemed great confusion on the part of Andy the presenter as to which way was up.

My thanks for you visits and hope you have a good Sunday.

You have been busy, Brenda.
Love the elegant colour combinations of your Tattered Lace creations, but your Penny Black card is definitely my favourite. Love the warm colours and the stamping. And the way you have framed it, it would make an excellent wall hanging.
Hope your weekend is off to a good start.

Wonderful cards Brenda - and I adore your snippets make! I do wonder if you ever make a 'dud' card - every single one of your creations is just so fabulous! Been trawling back through your recent posts - and it double confirms what I just said. Clever lady!

Hope that back is doing OK?!

Forgot to say, aren't Nitwits papers beautiful. They always seem to get the design so right - and I realised I too have some oldish A4 sheets, if I can find them! And laughing about the 'Coals to Newcastle' quip :)

These are all beautiful, Brenda - it is always interesting to see the broad scope of techniques used in a single one of your posts! (was that a weird combination of words? LOL) - you just amaze me, because I know the details on each card will be so different from the previous project. Love your pretty Autumn themed cards, and the birthday cards - all sporting beautiful bows! Hope you are doing well, my sweet friend, and that pain is more manageable these days. love, de
