Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog today. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Australia and we are currently right in the middle of Spring and already experiencing some very warm days. Our theme for the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop this month is Fall or Autumn for us Aussies. So my mind had to shift back to the cooler days of autumn.
I love the colours of autumn and I chose the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper to create this card. I have used the Holiday Haul host stamp set for my fun image with the truck and autumn leaves.
Have you had a look at this stamp set? It’s on Page 61 of the Holiday catalogue and has a lot of fun images. You can mix and match several stamps to create various images.
I stamped the truck in Old Olive and the leaves in Mango Melody. To make the bow I used 2 strands of twine and tied a regular bow then I attached it to my sentiment, adding the cork flower.

I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the coastal town of Blind Bight in the outer suburbs of Victoria in Australia. We are a small community with a beach within walking distance and some lovely walking tracks surrounded by bush.
Our theme for this hop is Fall or as it’s known in Australia – Autumn. Although we are in Spring and allergy season here at the moment, I love the colours of the Autumn leaves and nature paints a lovely picture during this season.
I really wanted to capture the colours of the Autumn leaves and chose the beautiful Peaceful Place stamp set to work with. I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black using the Stamparatus. Then I inked up the pine trees in Garden Green and restamped. I reinked sections of the pine tree in Shaded Spruce and stamped again. The Stamparatus makes this technique so easy to do.
Tip: First stamp and colour the image and then die cut the oval
I then added colour to the image using sponge daubers and several inks. This is a fun technique and simple to achieve. The die cut image has been mounted with Dimensionals onto a piece of Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. I love the wood texture and it reflects the elements of nature that are depicted in this image.
The autumn leaves from the Rooted in Nature stamp set have been stamped in Blackberry Bliss. These were then die cut and sponged with Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody.
The sentiment is stamped onto a piece of See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper and die cut with a label from Lakeside Dies. I first die cut the sentiment and then reinserted it into the die cutting machine to create a shorter label to fit my sentiment.
