Autumn colors by Miranda



Hi there,

Today it's my turn to show you some of the creations I've been making with the lovely Autumn edges.
Autumn together with Spring are my favorite seasons of the year.........those vibrant and rich colors!

The first card is made on a background of distress inks and if you look closer you see a fern leaf from a crafters stencil in the background. The trees are embossed with, copper sparkle a selfmade mix of Wow embossing powders, I've mixed Wow copper and Amber rose  and so are all the leaves and the leafy border. I like to mix colors to get the perfect match.The two large leaves in the right bottom corner are from the Sunny flowers.



And this is my 2nd take on the Autumn edges..............and on the same tree border.......and again I've used those lovely leaves from the Sunny flowers. This time I've used different embossing powders on the trees. The first tree and leaves from the bottom border are done with Wow Verdigris, the 2nd color is Wow copper and the 3rd one is Bark. The background is again done using Distress inks and I've spattered a bit with Distress stain Picket Fence. It creates some milky spots......The word Autumn is from the Autumn fairy sheet.


you can see the shine of the embossing powder a bit better here..........





Hope you have enjoyed my take on the Autumn edges and be inspired to get the Autumn colors from your stash! Have a play..........

Thanks for your visit and hope to see you next time,

  2. Hello Miranda
    I look at your work, and I have some of the stamps, but I don't have your flair for turning them into works of art.
    Absolutely lovely Miranda !
    Take care

  8. Wow Miranda your cads really press all the right buttons for me, you know I love nature themes. The beautiful coppery embossing works beautifully and I love the way you have used the soft fern stencilling in the background on the first card. The colours in the second really do capture autumn too. I love how you have added the leaves from the Sunny Sunflowers, those are some of my favourite CB leaves and they work beautifully with your design. You are always so clever at matching the different stamps sets together. Have you got a very good memory or a great stamp index I wonder?! Elaine x
