Gilded Autumn greetings

Jeg er veldig glad i å bruke bladgull, men oi oi.. som de flyr rundtomkring og setter seg fast på absolutt alt! For all del ~ IKKE vær forkjølt når du holder på med bladgull.. ETT lite nys og halve eska med bladgull fløy sin vei... ;) 

Har lagd et høstlig kort med en nydelig bakgrunnsdie jeg nylig fikk i posten. Måtte jo bare prøves så snart som mulig ♥ Og alle de flotte blomster stemplene (kinesisk lykt/japanlykt/jødekirsebær ~ Physalis alkekengi wikipedia artikkel) også inni og bakpå kortet, er fra Septembers Hero Arts kit.  

Om du lurer på hvor det blir av bloggcandyen jeg har lovet en stund nå, så er den snart her! Tar bare litt lengre tid enn jeg antok å gå gjennom allt scrappestæsjet mitt, men litt uti november regner jeg med å ha pakket ut og sortert meg noenlunde ferdig ~ og det blir enda mere flott oppi bloggcandyen :)

I am very fond of using gilding flakes, but they sure are messy! They fly all over the place and get stuck to EVERYTHING.. A good tip for ya: Do not, and I repeat: DO NOT be sick with the flu or sore throat when using your gilding flakes.. ONE little sneeze and half the box of flakes went up in the air, and landed all over me and the table! LOL ;) 

I've made an autumn themed card with the gorgeous background die I got in the mail recently, had to try it out as soon as possible, and it looks awesome when cut out ♥ And all the lovely flower stamps that I used, are called Chinese Lanterns or Japanese Lanterns, as well as Hozuki and the latin plant name Physalis alkekengi ~ see Wikipedia ~ and they were part of the September My Monthly Hero Arts kit.

Aaand if you're wondering where the blogcandy is at, that I promised for a while now, it is soon here! It's just taking a bit longer than I thought to go through all my crafty stash (too much stuff!), but I reccon that a week into november ++ I will have it all unpacked and somewhat sorted. And more things to put into the blogcandy is always a good thing right? :)
