274DF38D 2735 4F87 9C78 0D655200815DHi, I'm Christine Alward and welcome to my website. I have been a demonstrator with Stampin' Up! since December 2009, and I love paper crafting and card making. 

I love to make people feel good and happy about their accomplishments, big or small, and I can never get enough of the smiles and pride I see on my customers' faces when they look at a finished project.

Colour Inspiration - Gilded Autumn


Mint Macaron

Cajun Craze Early Espresso

Orange, brown, and mustard yellows have long been the traditional colours of Autumn. This month I'm sharing a fresh twist on the Autumn look with a muted, but still rich Colour Inspiration. Cajun Craze is a bold twist on the traditional orange while Mint Macaron offers a cool hint at the winter colours to come later in the season.

For anyone who enjoys fall colours and wants to create some cards and home décor items in these tones, I invite you to join our Craft Day In A Box event on September 12th! Registration closes on August 22nd, and Kevin and I would love for you to craft with us online. Check out the event on our Creative Retreats & Events fb group, and SIGN UP for the event RIGHT HERE!

GildedAutumn colour 1

The first card features a clean and simple look with no stamping. The metallic leaf and acorn images are punched from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (#153520) with the Autumn Punch Pack (#153609) trio of punches. The Mint Macaron ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (#153553) and Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder (#152320) add the perfect touch of texture.

GildedAutumn colour 2

The second card features the beautiful floral images from the Jar of Flowers stamp set (#152515). The image is coloured in using ink pads and Blender Pens (#102845) for a natural watercolour effect. A plethora of texture from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (#153553), Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder (#149643), Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder (#152320), and Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (#153200) finish this lovely card.

I think you will enjoy this beautiful colour combination and cannot wait to see what you create!
