Simple Silhouette

At A Passion for Papertrey this week the challenge is to include sillhoutettes and as I have hardly used my Iconic Images I pulled it out for this card as a last minute entry.

I used veracolour inks to stamp the background and tried to match the Autumn Rose cardstock.  I just love this colour and the ribbon is so pretty!

I hope you had a great weekend - I went off into town today to the Degas exhibition at the Royal Academy - it was just fantastic and a real treat to see so many fabulous paintings and now I "need" to have a bronze ballerina!

October PTI Blog Hop

Such a great inspiration photo for this month's blog hop that I fished out some supplies and had a crack - it's been ages since I joined in.

In my recipe for this card - Daydreamer stamps on stampers select white card in Persimmon versacolour ink, Autumn Abundance dp and terracotta tile ribbon.  Simply Chartrause card base and some orange card to match those lovely pumpkins from my stash.

Now I look at it I wished I had stamped some flourishes on the card base to match the orange and white pumpkin but it's done now!

Thanks for popping by - enjoy the hop!

Daisies and Doilies

I managed to drag myself out of the crafting doldrums this weekend and get my crafting goodies out onto the table for a play.

Seeking inspiration to kick start me I went over to Melissa Bickford's blog to look at her flower fusion samples - I love this one where she has stamped a sheet of daisies.  I don't have the same # 9 as it's on its way over so I used the flower from Floral Frenzy stamped in plum pudding, hibiscus burst, spring moss and summer sunrise.

There is a feast of die cutting on this card - nestabilities, Parisian lace doilies, sending you leaves, photo finishers and bloom builders # 3 - no wonder I needed new plates for my little cuttlebug!  I am saving my pennies for a Grand Calibre machine - or maybe Santa might take an early hint!
