August 2012 PTI Blog Hop

This month's brief was autumnal patterns and textures.  It is very hard to imagine autumn here at the moment as we are having temperatures of around 27C during the day.  So I couldn't help but revert to my favourite PTI set of Autumn Abundance (so excited to see a larger version of the vase of flowers out now).  The copics worked surprisingly well on the on the papery newsprint, I felt sure they would bleed.  The cork banner is popped up a bit in the middle to give a bit of dimension.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI Terracotta Tile, white
Patterned Paper - SU First Edition
Stamps - PTI Autumn Abundance, Inside and Out:  Thank You
Ink - SU Early Espresso; Memento Tuxedo Black
Markers - Copics;  SU Real Red
Dies - Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles;  TE Banner

Still on my mission to use up 12 x 12 paper.  I have finished all the Christmas paper and now I am onto the blue hues.  Whilst I am happy with progress, I really should stop buying 6 x 6 pads as I will have to go through the same process.  Such is the life of a card maker - really tough!


  1. I love the stamped and coloured leaves on the text background! Great take on the challenge!

  2. Love the brightly colored leaves! I really like the cork banner too -
