Autumn Fairies :)

I love this time of year, I think Autumn is my favourite season :)
Any hoo forgot to post this in my last post, here's a card I made for my Step Mums birthday which isn't while November so I'm hoping she doesn't come and have a sneaky peak lol!
Images are from the new MCS Walking in a Winter Wonderland, really gorgeous cds, I'm planning on making lots of my winter holiday cards from these cds :D
Everything else from my stash, the poem is by a poet called Celticpoet, it's a lovely poem and it fitted the theme of the card perfectly. The leaves were stamped using a versamark pad and then dusted with mica powders.
Lovely ribbons were from the candy Victoria from Blue Jelly Stampin sent me :) Thank you Victoria, the candy was fab :)

A few cards & bits I've made over the last month

Hi, been a bit busy the last few weeks but thought I'd post some stuff I've made.

Autumn gift bags for my Mum-in-law to give to friends when they go away in a couple of months time, the tutorial to make the bag is by ChicnScratch on youtube, go check out her channel here
The leaves were from Hobby Craft
Everything else from my stash
Stamp Frame is a Sizzix die
Tags cut using a Spellbinders die

Again these bags were made following ChicnSratch's tutorial
Card from stash
images from here and coloured with Promarkers
background cards were textured using Cuttlebug embossing folders, sanded and then a chalk ink pad brushed over the top.
Tags were cut from a sizzlet circle die and a spellbinders petite scallop die, all the sentiments were hand drawn so each would be individual :)
The string is good old garden string lol! from the Pound shop :D

This card and plaque were for my sisters 40th birthday and I have to say is one of my favourite things I've ever made. She is totally cat mad and has several cats, her fav being Shadow, an old and now very shabby looking black kitty lol!

The images are from Joanna Sheens Ivory Cats cd, I used the Virgo zodiac kitty because it looked like Shadow.
For the plaque I printed the cat on to acetate, sprayed the back with Crafters Companion glitter spray and then stuck it to gold mirri card with their stick n stay spray adhesive. Then added a frame and decorated with peel offs and gems. the back of the plaque was made using the matching background paper from the cd. I copied and imported the main image in to PSPXI and removed the cat and added a matching colour background. The scroll was made in PSPXI using av bro pro and eye candy xenofex filters.
The seal was a stamp I made ages ago using my ImagePac stamp kit, I embossed a piece of chipboard with several layers of gold embossing powder and pressed the stamp in while it was still hot.
The stand was made using a template from MCS Pretty in Porcelain cut out in gold mirri board and the other side was covered with matching bg paper.
I made a matching card, box and gift bag to make it look really special.
