Card set inspired by Altenew October Challenge

Hi there!

I planned to make just one card for Altenew October Inspiration Challenge ... but ended up making three! I just couldn't get rid of the off cuts from the stenciled background...

Number 1 :





Number 2:




Number 3:





All three together :


 I used :




The beautiful bright colors Laurie picked ,works so well to create a bold graphic look like in the first card... but I wanted to challenge myself to use the colors in an unconventional way to make floral cards as well !


I'm adding my favorite (#2)  to the Altenew inspiration challenge... which one is yours?





Thanks for visiting me today!

Be still...

Hi there!

Back in my craft room after a short break for some precious family time . Not too often that the four of us have the privilege to be under the same roof... and we made the most of it!

As always after time together the house feels extra quiet and I am thankful for a hobby which chases the blues away!

Maple leaf

HI there!

I love leaves...sometimes they are just as beautiful as flowers. Giant Monstera tropical leaves fascinate me, juicy succulent leaves are amazing too... but this time of the year ... I especially love Maple leaves. The shape of course, but those colors!

Today's maple leaf is in a geometric style, gold and black, using those gorgeous colors in the watercolored background.

I used :



  • Geometric autumn leaf from the Silhouette store - Design ID #158041
  • Silhouette cameo
  • Distress oxide inks : Peeled paint, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo
  • Sentiment from Altenew : Label love set
  • Foam tape for dimension
  • Versafine black ink


Another 'swiped' background using a credit card , distress oxide inks and spritzed water . Leaf cut twice, colored the top one with a gold paint marker and layered it between the top and bottom layers of the sentiment.  Love how it gives a dimensional look to the leaf !
