Two Autumnal Offerings

It's time for another "just because" post from me! :)  This time, I'm using a card style that I have wanted to try that is aptly used by my friend Ruth at Flower Sparkle.  THIS CARD inspired me to give it a go!  And I'm trying to use my new and old stamps that haven't seen the light of day recently or at all, so I grabbed out some of the stash and got busy!  I've got another card to share, too.  Both are autumn themed! :)

Here's the finished project~

Detail~



For these fabulous challenges~




I've used sequins from my stash, liquid pearls by Ranger, twine by We R Memory Makers, a clear glitter gel pen by Sakura (to highlight the sentiment), and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

And now onto card #2--another autumnal offering by this time a bit more artsy in the feel. :)

Here's the card~

For these fabulous challenges~




This card uses more sequins from my stash, a sentiment from Great Impressions, a fun texture set by Bo Bunny, liquid pearls by Ranger, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

That's all for me now!  Thanks so much for taking a bit of time to come and say hello!  I hope that you join in the fun of these challenges and that you create something today!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)

Wow, Mynn, you're such a huge inspiration so I am chuffed to bits that I inspired you - very happy and honoured! You made a wonderful job of it, such a beautiful autumnal card!

I love the more artsy card too, it really conjures up a windy autumn day when leaves get whipped up and I love the warm colours!

Hope you're having a great week! {{{{hugs}}}} Ruth x

Both cards have such a beautiful autumn feel to them! Love how the first cards opens up (a design I really want to try out myself some time in the future). Your second card has a lovely color scheme - so soft and love the added sparkle!
