Autumnal Cards

Good morning

Today I would like to share with you a couple of cards which I made at a recent workshop with Gwen at The Stamp Pad  in Saddleworth.

These two cards were made with papers from the fabby First Edition Desert Bloom paper pad.

This card was made from a 6x6" card blank. The two papers were matted onto kraft brown card. Although it doesn't show on the photo very well the floral paper is glittered on the flowers and leaves. The stripe paper was then punched along both edges with a scalloped border punch (I think this one was by EK Success). Then cream and brown spotted Bo Bunny ribbon was tied around these layers. The Owl was cut using the GoKreate Owl die. He is sooo cute. He was matted onto a brown paper from the stack and Kraft card which have been die cut with Nesties lables 1. This was then attached using foam pad to raise it up slightly. The small acorns and leaves came from a small button pack, the shanks were cut off and then they were attached to the card with silicone glue.

This second card was also made using the same Desert Bloom Paper pad. This time the papers were matted onto brown card which has a slight glittery look to it. The right hand side of the brown glitter was punched with a border punch before being attached under the stripy paper. The ribbon was again by Bo Bunny, I love this spotty ribbon. The pumpkin in the centre was die cut with a Cuttlebug cut and emboss folder. Once the shape was cut out you then put it pumpkin into the embossing folder and this give the card its fabby indentations on the pumpkin and the leaves. This was finished off with mettalic brown pearls in the top left and bottom right hand corner. The sentiment is from a set by Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my cards.
