I know we’re not quite there yet, but here in Denmark the weather is starting to say: Fall!
After an incredible summer with record high temps, a record long drought and record for most sunshine, August has been a bit disappointing in terms of heat and sun. We got lots of rain….enough to end the drought and make everything green again but come on….enough is enough 😀
In a few days it’s September and the first month of Fall so what better to start making Fall decorations.
I started out with the gorgeous Falling Leaves Topiary from Hello Autumn SVG Bundle by Dreaming Tree:
This is made from AC Cardstock in Boysenberry, Carrot, Cherry, Dandelion, Melon and Leaf.
I used a Darice Crackle Embossing folder on all the leaves and inked with Distress Ink from Ranger. The veins are made with Sharpie pens.
I couldn’t get the cone that is to be used with this project, so I made my own and I also altered the top to look like another layer instead of a gold cone. Finally I glued a Amethyst pearl on top.
I didn’t make the vase for it because I wanted it to be placed on a plate with some other Fall projects – like the Big Ghost Pumpkin from the Pick a Pumpkin kit from SVG Cuts:
I made this one in AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Leaf, Coffee and Apricot and decorated with patterned paper from Galeria Papieru.
I also embossed a few panels with a bark-like embossing folder from Creative Expressions and inked all edges with Distress Ink and Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink. The leaf is embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.
Incredibly easy to make – even for beginners!!!
I also made the gorgeous Apple from the Miss Baker’s Classroom kit also by SVG Cuts:
It’s made from AC Cardstock in Rouge and Leaf and embossed with a Sizzix letter embossing folder and the leaf with a leaf-veined embossing folder. All edges are inked with Distress ink and lastly I decorated the apple with some raffia and twine along with some small gems and a button from my stash.
These three items really goes well together, don’t you think?
So now it’s all ready to decorate my dining room table the next couple of months – until Halloween anyways 😉
