Stamp With Joy Card Sketch

Hi and welcome to my blog. Thank you for dropping in.

Well haven't we seen a change in the weather in the UK? It is cold at last and very dreary and soon to be very dark very early as our clocks adjust for daylight saving. So winter is fast approaching and Autumn rumbles out. Now I feel more like making those autumnal and wintery cards. Christmas card making should notch up a little too and I should get around to all of those other festive makes I've been lining up for myself.

Today though it's Saturday and so it's my day for sharing cards I've been making. The first one today is my entry for this week's Stamp With Joy challenge over in the lovely Gaynor Boyce's Facebook group.

I went with a slight autumnal feel with the whirling leaves and the idea of staying cosy indoors doing some crafting rather than battling with the wind to get some laundry on the washing line. Although to be honest as much as this is reflective of real life right now I do absolutely love getting the washing out at this time of year even if only for an hour to give it that smell of cold which just seeps back out as you take an iron to it even if it's been finished off in the tumble drier.  I just don't think that line dried in the cold autumn wind smell can be bettered.

I used a free Stamps By Chloe set which I've mentioned in a video on my channel before and worked it with Stampin' Up! card stock, DSP and inks as well as a couple of the fab scalloped edge punches from Stampin' Up! and a little bit of retired ribbon.

I just love how this one turned out and I did stay pretty true to the sketch.

To see the tutorial head to my channel. It's one of those videos where I make it up as I go along so you get to see (and hear) what goes on in my mind when I'm working with a sketch.

Thank you so much for watching. I'm back tomorrow with my Joy of Sets Great Christmas Card Challenge card and I'm on number 16!

Have a great weekend!
