My favorite time of year is here! I love the colors, temperatures, smells, and flavors of Autumn. Turning leaves, pretty mums in bloom and bright pumpkins make me happy. The cooler temps are great for a fire in the fire pit. But my favorite part of Fall is that it is caramel apple and pumpkin pie time!!
This little angel is a design I did for Denise over at Custom Quilling www.customquilling.com. You can find this and tons more ideas for inspiration in the archived newsletters there.
I used the old Sizzix die for the body, shoes and hair and another Sizzix leaf die for the wings. The onion holder was used to make the dress, mini leaves and pumpkin punches for the halo. A small scalloped oval punch for her collar, under skirt and a quilled pumpkin and sunflower for her to hold. I used the Peachy Keen stamps for her face. I put the little angel onto a large popsicle stick to use as a plant poke, but she could be put on a card or used in a scrapbook layout or anything you would want to embellish!
I think that if I made the project again I would double the die cut body so the light would not show through.
I know October is set aside as Breast Cancer awareness month but I find myself making cards like this now. An Aunt who is near and dear to me is dealing with cancer at this time, so I am making cards as a way to show my support, care & love.
I can only imagine how scary all of this is for her. Love you Aunt Carol!
I am a bad blog mom! Sorry there have been no posts since Christmas.
With my record I need to catch up, so how about something for Valentine's Day!
I found this glittered styrofoam heart at either Michael's or Hobby Lobby and it looked naked so I dressed it up!
A few punched roses and leaves, then some little fringed "button" flowers from 1/8" quilling strips, next a couple of fringed flowers from 1/4" strips. To top it off some die cut hearts, a stamped "Be Mine" sentiment and a bow.
