FREE Pass...

Before I get onto sharing today's card with you, I just want to let you know that I have a FREE pass to the next round of Stampin' Fun & Friends which begins 20 September through to 4 October.

As the theme for this round is Autumn Artistry, all you have to do is leave a comment saying why you like Autumn.

Now, I know here in OZ we are only a few days off Spring, but there is something I remember about an autumn when living in Canberra many years ago.  That is all those beatuiful leaves falling off the many trees in & around the parks & gardens onto the ground & myself & my girlfriend diving into them, playing & hiding.  I had never seen anything like it.  The memory is still very strong in my mind!

I will be using random.org to draw the winner.  Closing date is 9 September.

On with the card -

With Father's Day coming up here in OZ, we created a card last Friday which could be used for this occasion.  In fact, the card suits all occasions.  I found the instructions on the very talented Connie Babbert's site.  I did change the measurememnts to suit my card & to make it smaller.

Base Card - More Mustard - 5 7/8" x 4 1/4" or 15cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 - Pear Pizzazz - 5 3/4" x 3 1/2" or 14.5cm x 9cm
Layer 2 - DSP - 5 3/4" x 3/4" or 14.5cm x 2cm
Layer 3 - DSP - 5 7/8" x 1" or 15cm x 2.5cm

Inside Card...
After scoring my Base Card at 4 1/2" or 11.5cm, I adhered the wider piece of DSP down the RHS of the card - as per inside photo.

I adhered the narrower piece of DSP down the LHS of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, stamped the image using Pear Pizzazz Ink at the top of the card & adhered to the Base Card using Snail Adhesive.  I wanted the tie to look like it was hanging off a hook.

After making my Tie using DSP, I attached it to the top of the card with Snail Adhesive.  I inked my sentiment in Basic Black Ink & stamped at an angle to the tie direct onto the Pear Pizzazz piece.

For my inside, I stamped the images around the edge of Whisper White Cardstock using Pear Pizzazz & adhered to the Base Card.

All in all, a really fast & very easy 5 minute card!

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Totally Tool, Short & Sweet, Cheers to You
Ink - Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black
Cardstock - Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard
DSP - In Colours
Accessories - Snail Adhesive


Until next time, Enjoy!

Hello Miss Vicky,

By the way I think your blog is AWESOME!

Ok, why I love Autumn...where shall I start. Autumn is my favorite season, I love the leaves turning color and creating a lush bed of color beneath our feet. I love to hear the crunch of the leaves as we walk through them. I love watching my dog "hide" in the leaves and then bark for me to find her. I love that the days are not so hot and you can be outside all day with no more than just a sweater on. I love that the kiddies are all back in school and life returns to normal. I love autumn because the Stampin Up Holiday Mini is released with all the great Halloween and Christmas stuff. But MOST of all, I love autumn because card and scrapbooking classes resume after the summer break!!!!

Thanks for the opportunity Vicki,
Thinking of Autumn brings back very fond memories of New Zealand and our trip to Arrowtown just out of Queenstown. The whole town was blanketed by these awesome gold, yellow and amber leaves from the many deciduous trees. The crisp air, reminiscent, of Tasmania allowed us to cuddle up in front of the log fires at the B and B. What is there not to love! Here in Queensland I miss the rainbow of these colours and the earthy smell as your crush the leaves beneath your feet. But the love is still there for Autumn as I identify the plants that change hue and the awesome colours of their fruits.
