Autumn is on it’s way

There is definitely a chill in the air as we approach the end of September and a lot of challenge blogs are picking autumnal themes. The image for the From the Heart Progressive Challenge is a good one to cover a lot of the autumn themes.

Materials used:SAM_2269(watermarked)
From the Heart Stamps – Pumpkin Patch Girl
15cm white square card
brown card in two shades
stamping card
square dies and lacy square die
various acrylic word stamps
Copic pens

I printed out my image and coloured it in with the Copics before using a square die to cut it out. I cut a mat in light brown just slightly bigger and then another in dark brown using the lacy square die. I scored the front of the card in halves to make an easel card and attached my layered and matted topper to the front. For the card stopper I used parts of a number of word stamps to make up my greeting because I do not have a ‘Hand picked for you’ stamp!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
From the Heart Progressive Freebie Challenge – September
Beccy’s Place – September Challenge
Inspiration Destination #51
Addicted to Stamps #162 – Make Your Mark
Craft Your Passion #279

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Today is the first day of Fall. I love this image, she reminds me of when we would take our students to the pumpkin patch for a field trip and they could pick a pumpkin to take home. Thanks for joining us at Creative Card Crew. Vicki DT
