Elegant Pumpkins..

Good morning friends, followers and visitors..

Sharing my DT card from Tutti Designs blog  

This is my first "Fall" card that I have every made! It is something we do not celebrate in the UK as you do in US.

I cut this corner in cream card using "Elegant Pumpkins" ..on the reverse, before the negative pieces fell out ..I used super sticky double sided tape to hold them in place.
Next using distress markers in orange shades I coloured as shown, the leaf with swirl a mix of green pens.

To add dimension I used 3d foam tape behind  the pumpkins only, placed these onto brown card that has been embossed in a folder with leaves.. 
Next using glossy accent on the coloured orange only, hope you can see the shine!
Using watered down white Gesso added splatters..  

The leaves and text with folder I got FREE with Creative Magazine.. best freebie for a long while..
Cut leaves in greeny yellow card and coloured with distress inks!

Thank you for stopping by and any comments you care to leave Pam x.

Snow Globe Scene.

Good morning friends, followers and visitors. 

It`s Wednesday so I am blogging over on  Tutti Designs Blog  

I have made this  Christmas card using this wonderful   Snow Globe Scene Die 145 

This die cuts as the picture, I have pieced  the die cuts back into the globe shape. after I cut a circle shape in dark blue as a backer.

I have coloured these pieces with distress markers, then using pva glue I added  lines to create snow, while still wet applied "Twinklets Diamond Dust" 

The bottom of the Globe I cut a silver frame,  pieced dark blue into this, next using "Glossy Accents" on the blue to create a glass look, sorry it does not show up in the photo..

This embossed background was a free embossing folder from a magazine. 
It has a circle shape in the centre, I die cut a dark blue card circle shape.
Finished with red ribbon, leaves by Sue Wilson Trailing Ivy Dies
from my stash and berries..
Hope this has given you an idea how to use this wonderful Snow Globe Scene, would look beautiful in traditional Christmas colours.
