Fall cards + some home decor

This post is also available in: Russian


There is a new CAS challenge in the blog I design for. And the challenge is to create fall cards. I went overboard and created 5. I made them on International Cardmaking Day, so I think it’s a good excuse lol. And then I’ll also show some fall decor I made in our apartment.

The first time I tried such panel. Love how bright and busy background being settled down by white panel. Although I feel like I should have chosen longer sentiment. And maybe not to put so many enamel dots.
Card_141005_01The next card is in some way similar to the previous one. Also played with panels. Always wanted to try this thing – cut a stamped panel to show a sentiment underneath. Bit now, looking at the picture I feel that the gap between  panel part is kind of huge. It broke the image more then I intended.
Card_141005_03And this card I don’t like a lot :))))) When it was in my head in the shape of idea it looked much better. As the result I got some design a child could make.
Card_141005_04On this card I created bokeh effect and made two-layered DYI chipboard.
Card_141005_05On this photo you can better see what I mean saying two-layered DYI chipboard. One leaf is two times higher then another and like laying on the top on another one.
Card_141005_06I took this idea from banana republic store window. Thought it would be very difficult to die-cut pieces for the chipboards, but it happened to be pretty easy. The only thing – I think it would have a better look if I use white cardstock.
Card_141005_07This card was more the attempt to try gold leafing with sticky embossing powder. And again I made a wrong choice with cardstock. Should have taken a smooth one or other color.. or choose a solid gold leafing (this one has three color in it).
Card_141005_02And some my fall decor. Most of it I got from a dollar store, Goodwill, Michales. I only did leaves from book pages and Trader Joe’s bag (sprayed them) and a book pedestal (I made with this tutorial). This huge felt leaf is a placemats from Bed&Bath (only 2 bucks each), they have them in different colors. Later I’ll add some Halloween touches to this decor. And maybe extend it with some other stuff if find smth interesting this year.
Thank you for visiting.
