I had a little free time left this afternoon, after watching “The Paradise” on Netflix. Have you seen this show? It’s amazing! I love the characters, the costumes… Everything is so beautiful. I first wanted to make just one card, but then I thought, well why not two?

My favourite season is HERE! AUTUMN! I love the colours, the smell, the layers of clothing, the chocolate milk… I haven’t seen my grandmother in a while, so I decided to make her an autumn card & matching envelope!

I woke up early this morning and decided I wanted to make a woodland related postcard. I live near the Veluwe, which is a beautiful piece of the Netherlands. We have deers, wild boars, squirrels and the Veluwe always looks just absolutely beautiful, no matter what time of year. Since autumn is upon us, everything is gold and brown and I can’t wait to take a hike!
This simple postcard is made with some leftover craft supplies I had laying around, so I hope you’ll enjoy the video!
- White card stock
- Echo Park Paper Co. Swirls
- Chevron stamp
- Distress Ink Tea Dye
- Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy Cardstock Stickers
- Wooden slices
- Bronze enamel dots
- Craft Tacky Glue
- 3d Foam tape
I still had some great Graphic45 paper laying around from the “Le Cirque Collection” and decided to make this postcard! I also used some embossing and ink. The card turned out a little different than I planned, but I am happy with the result. It reminds me of the old Big Top, the Ringling Brothers… How exciting it must have been to visit the circus in the early 1900’s… Quick tip: if you are in the mood for a great circus movie, watch “Water for Elephants”. It stars Robert Pattinson & Reese Witherspoon and I really love it. Here are some pictures and yes, I made a video. The list of materials I’ve used are below the video. Enjoy!

How awesome is this? Jared C. Balogh (the musician who’s responsible for the great music to my “How-to” video’s on YouTube) liked the Vintage Paris Canvas so much, that he wanted to buy it for his sister as a present.
He told me that his sister really loves all things French, so I wrapped the canvas up in handmade wrapping paper (using my Vintage Gentleman stamps & black embossing powder) and finished it off with a vintage label (for Jared to write a personal note on) & a big, brass key.
It has shipped a couple of days ago & I really hope she likes it!
