Welcome!

Welcome to my blog. Over the years that I have been stamping and paper crafting, I have so often been inspired by the ideas on other sites and blogs. I hope I can pay that back in some measure with my own. (In between laughs -- or cackles as my son calls it!)

Autumn Wedding


Here's an autumn wedding card that uses Sheena Douglass' Autumn Leaves set.  I kept the color scheme to ivory and metallic.


I started with a purchased card base that already had the trellis die cut on the right.  I then heat embossed in gold the fern-looking leaves in a right angle on the bottom left.  On scraps of SU Confetti Cream card stock, I heat embossed several leaves, some in gold and some in copper.  

Then I cut (and cut) out the leaves.  I arranged them in a spray radiating out from the bottom left corner.  A purchased paper rose anchors the corner.  Everything is adhered with glue dots.

I heat embossed the greeting (from the retired SU set, Elegant Greetings) in golds, and die cut it with my oval Nestabilities.  I layered this on to an oval mat of SU Brushed Gold card stock.

Finishing touches were tiny coppery-brown pearls at the intersection of the trellis.  Hope you enjoyed it!

  1. Pretty card! I like the die cut edge, wherever did you find that card blank?

  2. Hi Caryn. I got the card blanks a few years ago at a scrapbook show. It was a small company. On the bag it says, "Purple Daisy Designs", 10 cards and envelopes $4.90 -- phone number 717-597-8803. They had them in white and ivory back then. No part number is on the package.
