Last week of Autumn

This week is the last week of the Autumn theme over on Make My Monday, I don't know if anyone who reads this blog has been over and had a go this last few weeks, but I have really enjoyed this theme.

For this last card I have gone back to the stamps I used at the beginning of the month.


I used the same technique we used then but this time I cut out the extra stamping and added that to my card with foam pads, I also added a rosette that I had coloured to match.  I do hope you have a go and join us on Make My Monday, its a great blog with some amazing people showing there work.

If anyone was waiting to see what I bought when I went craft shopping the other day, you will be disappointed to know all I got was a large acrylic block for my clear stamps! I know its just not me at all, will have to sort out an order online instead.

Thanks for reading,
Cath

Really beautiful card Cath. Love the inked and stamped background and the gorgeous rosette.
Sorry you had a disappointing shop too and hope you have better luck online. This is something I frequently have to do as we've lost all of the good nearby craft shops here due to the recession.
Have a good week.

Cath. Love your card. You've made this stamp look completely different and I adore the rosette..

What fabulous colors--so gorgeous! I love your little popped up leaves! And I love that your sentiment is on a rosette--they're so classy! :)

Not sure how I missed this, but I really like this card. The raised leaves are so much fun, too.

Hi Cath ... so glad you can leave a comment on my blog!! thank you :D
I know what you mean about the Marinne dies.. I use my pokey tool to lift one bit of the paper/card..(I always use card) then slide it gingerley underneath to lift the card out... works for me. Suzannes on the Marianne design team .. maybe she knows a better way. I do believe this question has been raused before and MD have started putting access holes in the dies.
