Lynne Perrella Silver and Gold Christmas Creations for PaperArtsy

I have pinched myself, slapped my cheek, and woken up, still to find that one of my wildest dreams has become a reality!  I'm ever so thankful and excited to point you towards the PaperArtsy blog today, where I am sharing a few creations using the most exquisite stamps from the PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collection (LPC018).  I used PaperArtsy Fresco Acrylic Paints to create a wide array of backgrounds for stamping and die cutting.  Get all the details and let Leandra know if you've enjoyed my post on the PaperArtsy blog.  Big hugs, Autumn

PS. There's plenty of time to play in the current PaperArtsy topic, Metallics for a chance to win a £50 gift voucher to the online shop! 

Prima Rose Quarts Bohemian Card

Hello dears!  Today I am sharing my final project for Scrapy Land.  :(  This has been the most amazing and talented team to work with, but as you all know I am going a mile a minute these days and can't seem to keep up.  I'm starting to have anxiety with completing projects on time and had to let something go.  I will definitely keep up with the team's beautiful creations and will be entering the challenges again in the future.  Speaking of challenges, our newest challenge begins today with a them of Always Anything Goes with a Die Cut Brand that Scrapy Land sells.

I was eager to play with my new Prima Rose Quartz papers.  I decided to use one of the collage images as a focal point and blend in some of my all time favorite dies.  I cut a Sizzix Tim Holtz Ornate Frame No. 2 from chipboard, then adhered a second cut from one of the black patterned papers over it.  I tucked in a favorite Prima doily die cut for contrast and texture.

I fussy cut a bouquet from the collection.  I curled the corners of my focal element and added some glittery Prima stickers.  These are the insides of the hole reinforcers from a My Prima Planner package, which I had won in a giveaway.  :)

I wanted to tuck a strip of die cut lace and was so excited to find that one of the Sizzix doily set borders matched the Prima doily almost perfectly!  Woot woot!  I curled the paper up to emphasize this element.  I finished with a fussy cut feather, a folded paper flower and a twine bow.  I just wish I had more time to make a few other designs!

Come play along with our current challenge for a chance to win one of two giftcards to the Scrapy Land shop!  And to the SL DT, thank you so much for the encouragement and support these past six months.  I have learned so much from each of you and look forward to continuing our friendship.  xx, Autumn

PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Altered Journal

Hey guys!  I'm so excited to be sharing a Destination Inspiration post on the A Vintage Journey blog today.  Our travel bag this month was filled with a great range of goods, so join me to see how I combined each component.  I've altered a journal in coordination with our current challenge, Altered Art.  There's plenty of time left for you to play along!

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with STAMPlorations

Happy Friday!  I woke up super early to try and squeeze in one quick card to promote the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I realized I had never used this coffee border stamp from STAMPlorations and decided to do an embossing resist pattern with Distress Inks.

I know this is very simple for me, but it was 5:00 am and I was in desperate need for coffee!  LOL!  I stamped a couple of images and fussy cut, then layered with a Darkroom Door sentiment, some string and glittery elements.  I won't have a card a day for this hop, but I hope you will take some time to play along and support the team's efforts.  Thanks to Amy for organizing this season after season.  <3
