Breath in the Autumn air


I'm feeling much better, thank you so much for all your warm wishes. The first two days back at work was a bit wobbly, you know the feeling when you realise that your knees are made of jelly?! And that the brain doesn't want to work at all?! Now I'm back in to the usual buzz and to my walks kicking around Autumn leaves. That's exactly what we at Sweet Stampin' want to see in our new challenge; Autumn Leaves and stamping. We're kindly being sponsored by Crafty Ribbons, please check our blog for the all the details and to see the teams super inspiring cards.


Challenges:
Addicted to stamps: CAS
Crafty Calendar: Sparkle, bling end embellish
Less Is More: Fire

"The secret behind staying young is to be honest, eat slowly and lie about your age"

I masked a panel with heat proof tape and stamped the Exchangeable leaf stamp with embossing ink and it was heat embossed with clear powder. The same image was stamped with Distress ink too and the background was coloured with a few Distress inks too.
The Vilda Stamp sentiment in Swedish is stamped with Watering Can Archival ink, some extra lines were added with a black Sakura pen. Some Prima bling gems finished the card.

Thank you so much for visiting!

Love and hugs
Maarit
