Autumn is with us.

Hello and welcome to Amethystarcrafting. My name is Jane Allmark and I'm a Stampin Up demonstrator.

Autumn I now well and truly upon us and the nights are getting longer and it is dark a lot earlier.  Soon the clocks will go back and it will be even darker.  However this weekend we had a lovely warm spell and even though the air still smelled of Autumn it was lovely to sit in the garden and see all the lovely trees with their array of different coloured  leaves.

So todays card is inspired by all the lovely leaves.  My favourite leaves are the ones that turn brown and fall in heaps as there is nothing nicer than scuffing through the leaves with your feet and the lovely scrunching sound underfoot.

This set is Vintage Leaves and has a coordinating die set to cut out the leaves.  I chose two colours for this, Fresh Fig and then 3 of the Stampin Blends, Crumb Cake light and dark, and bronze. Now Stampin Blends are not available at the moment as they are being trialed by demonstrators, but will be alcohol twin tipped markers.  They are lovely and very easy to blend and use.

I also die cut and stamped the little leaf from Colourful Seasons in Fresh Fig and added a little piece of twine and some metallic sequins to add some interest.

If you would like to buy these sets then pop over to my SHOP above and have a browse.  There is a great offer on dsp buy 3 and get 1 free and don't forget to have a look at the Clearance Rack as there are always bargains up to70% off to be had.
