Elegant Pumpkin Luminaries

Hello – so glad you are joining me today 🙂

I have something really pretty to show you. I know I said that I would do Christmas from now on BUT…..Simply Crafty SVGs just released this gorgeous, beautiful Fall Pumpkin Luminary and I just had to make it and this just in time for Thanksgiving (for all my US friends and family).

Of course I couldn’t just make one – I made three 😀 Then I got to play a little more with some of my fantastic fall papers 😉

First is the one in the Original size:

I made this from AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Chestnut and Coffee along with Mercury Glass Paper from DCWV.  The stem is embossed with a script patterned embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

Then I made one downscaled to 75%:

This is made also from AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Coffee and Leaf and with patterned paper from DCWV’s stack “Copper Luxe”. I embossed the stem with a crack-patterned embossing folder from Darice.

The third one is downscaled by 50%:

This is again made with AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Coffee and Cranberry and decorated with Copper Glitter Paper from Artemio. The stem is embossed with an embossing folder from Cuttlebug with a Swiss dot pattern.

Wow – so easy to assemble … you can make lots of these in no time! They will look so awesome as table centerpiece or, as I intend to, use them as pretty fall decorations.

They look so beautiful at night too:

Thanks for joining me today and to all of you that celebrate:

Happy Thanksgiving ❤

Happy Autumn

Happy Sunday to you and thank you so much for joining me today.

For the final Autumn projects this year I chose to make the cute 3D Owl from the JGW Autumn Aire kit:

I used AC Cardstock in Coffee, Chocolate, Caramel, Rust and Latte along with patterned paper from Echo Park’s “A Perfect Autumn” and woodgrain patterned paper from Simple Stories.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and I used some hemp cord to tie around the belly of the Owl.

I also doodled some highlights in his eyes with a white Sharpie.

He is quite large and sooooooo adorable not to mention very easy to make.

I also made the Oak Leaf Wreath:

I used AC Cardstock in Chocolate, Latte, Pomegranate, Leaf, Apricot, Mustard, Goldfish, Plum, Rouge and Wine for this.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and the leaves and the berries are embossed with different embossing folders from Darice and Sizzix.

I also used pop dots to add the leaves to give it more dimension.

This one is going to live with my Mother, who recently moved from her house into a small apartment with a front door that has a window in it. This will be perfect to hang there and spred a little Autumn happiness.

Thanks for joining me today – now it’s time for Christmas! 😀

Colorful Autumn

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 😉
