Autumnal Inspiration

Alreet pet!

My first post, how exciting!

Crafter’s Companion are a company I work with almost every day at Hochanda, and I absolutely love their products. They recently opened their second shop in Chesterfield which is only an hour and a half away from where I live, so how could I resist?!

As I went there on the opening weekend, there were plenty of offers to take advantage of. Whilst I was in the checkout queue, I saw issue 11 of the Crafter’s Inspiration magazine for just £5. With over £50 worth of goodies for free, I thought it was worth giving it a chance.

So with many autumnal projects in the magazine, I was inspired to make this card:

I thoroughly enjoyed this project as it’s not occassion specific and can be recreated for many events throughout the year. I’ve really gotten into my distress inks recently and this was the first time I attempted to combine inks with an embossing folder and I love the result.

For this project, I used:

  • The free embossing folder and stamp set from the magazine
  • The ‘Wings of Love’ die from the ‘Together Forever Signature Collection by Sara Davies’
  • Sizzix thinlets die – Elegant Deer by Pete Hughes
  • Tim Holtz Walnut stain disress ink
  • Twine
  • Centura Pearl – Hint of Silver cardstock
  • Scrap piece of cardstock found in my stash

Thank you for popping by!

Ta-ra,

I'm a 24 year old Northener living in the South of England. My love of craft started at Hochanda where I worked as a floor manager. My first interest was parchment craft as Barbara Gray kindly gifted me a starter kit, and it was all downhill from there! Although parchment is my first love, I s love to dabble in 'messier crafts', and the Geordie Unicorn simply serves as a place for me to share my exploration of arts and crafts. I am now a proud member of the Claritystamp team where I now work full time as well as being a member of the groovi design team. Hope you enjoy my ramblings! Becca xxx
